    As Obama Vacillates, ISIS Continues Its Brutal March to Europe's Doorsteps

    Earlier this morning, Erick did an excellent job explaining why Marie Harf and those who support the notion that we can’t win the war against ISIS by killing the bad guys “are damn naïve fools.” Her statements are not particularly surprising when you look at the contents of Obama’s laughable AUMF request for “war” on the Islamic State. I would go as far as saying that | Read More »

    Give President Obama What He Needs

    The Islamic State is a growing threat in the Middle East. Unfortunately, it is one that President Obama seems incapable of dealing with. According to CNN, more than 50% of Americans think President Obama’s handling of the Islamic State situation is less than acceptable.

    More peachy-keen news in the feckless Obama administrations feckless war on ISIS: U.S. officials are acknowledging that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has spread into Afghanistan, where President Obama is on track to draw down all but 1,000 U.S. troops by the end of the year. “The expansion of ISIL into the region is of great concern,” said Pentagon spokesman Marine Corps | Read More »

    Obama’s AUMF should be DOA

    The abject failure of leadership by Barack Obama continues apace. The draft AUMF submitted to Congress is just another example of an administration that is so pathological that it feels like it must lie to stay in practice. For instance, Obama’s own letter to Congress simply lies about the nature of the operation. His letter says: My Administration’s draft AUMF would not authorize long‑term, large-scale | Read More »

    Obama shows no leadership on fight with ISIS

    Earlier in the week the White House sent the low-wattage Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to ask the Senate to pass an authorization for the use of military force against ISIS. It has been clear from the start that Obama really doesn’t care about ISIS. He is concerned that his legacy, other than trashing the US | Read More »

    Obama requests Iraq AUMF be repealed

    The situation in Iraq grows more perilous by the day. The nation seems of the verge of dissolving into now only warring ethnic enclaves but warring ethnic enclave engaged in their own civil war. Barack Obama and his administration has stood idly by as the situation has spiraled out of control and any gains made during the Iraq War have been erased. Yet, on Friday | Read More »
