What Leading From Behind Looks Like
I do not think Barack Obama is a closet sympathizer of muslim Jihadists bent on our destruction, but God help me I suddenly understand how some have arrived at that conclusion. To stand up and tell the world that we are going to do zero to help Ukraine and have no strategy to defeat ISIS is just insane. That the White House staff had to | Read More »
The Democrats’ Problem
Members of the Democratic Party are soiling themselves over Barack Obama’s plans for unilateral, executive ordered immigration reform. They should be. Barack Obama has shown time and time again he does not care about them. Just a couple of weeks ago, Democrats were openly complaining in the New York Times that Barack Obama never helped them, listened to them, or hung out with them. He | Read More »
Burger King In Exile
Image Credit: (Wall Street Journal and News Busters) The revenue from a 100% Tax Rate against a revenue base of zero equals zero. The revenue of a smaller and more reasonable rate of taxation against a significantly large base of revenue is still a pretty big number. This fundamental truism eludes the statist drones and Keynesian knuckleheads that designed our current system of taxation. President | Read More »
How Many Will Die?
How many people world wide are going to be slaughtered because of Barack Obama? I think the number grows daily. It is not just Americans who have died and will die because of Barack Obama, but many others. Our enemies are increasingly on the move across the globe. They are emboldened by a President in mom jeans who’d rather golf than lead. President Obama has | Read More »
A Question of Optics: Rand Paul vs. Barack Obama
If you think that President Obama can provide you with health care, let him take a scalpel to your eye. I dare you – Kevin Williamson, NRO There is something genuinely tiresome about the tone of a lot of political commentary regarding how medical doctors spend their time caring for people in other countries. There is also something utterly profane, inhumane and despicable about how | Read More »
Playing the Game Badly
President Obama has been really great at winning his own election. We have to give credit where it is due. He has beaten our side twice. But it really is rather spectacular just how bad he is at so much of the rest of the game of politics. And, on this point, I think it should be said that it is not really him, so | Read More »
Obama’s Cipher Legacy
President Obama’s legacy will be a cancelled check made by himself to himself: a net zero. He has ensured that he will become a cipher in the history of American presidents, both from the Left and the Right. From the time he surfaced as a do-nothing Senator from the Chicago Way, to his current push to play more rounds of golf than any president since Eisenhower, this man has wrought chaos, failure and disappointment, even to his one-time supporters.

Obama’s mess in Iraq
As the Obama administration flounders about in trying to come to a decision on how to deal with ISIS/ISIL, the White House’s minions have been unleashed to, you guess it, blame President Bush. The general line of attack is that had Bush not invaded Iraq, or had done so differently, then the Child Emperor, the Lightworker, would not be flopping about like a carp on | Read More »
So Then What About Bowe Bergdahl?
The ISIS/ISIL nuts are not above trading a hostage for American dollars to later use against us. They made a ransom demand to the United States. CNN’s Crossfire tweeted out the response from the spokesman for President Obama’s National Security Council. “[The U.S.] does not grant concessions to hostage takers…. Doing so would only put more Americans at risk of being taken captive,” said the | Read More »
The failed rescue of James Foley and the price of prevarication
In the aftermath of the callous execution of photojournalist James Foley we are told that a rescue attempt was mounted to free him and other hostages: The Pentagon attempted a rescue operation to free James Foley and other U.S. hostages held in Syria by Islamist militants, but the mission failed because the hostages weren’t where U.S. planners thought they were, U.S. officials told NBC News | Read More »
Obama’s Irresponsible Leak of the Failed Operation to Rescue Foley
Yesterday, the news broke that the United States had tried to rescue James Foley and several other American hostages of ISIS somewhere in Syria. As The New York Times explains: The officials — speaking a day after the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria posted a video showing the American journalist James Foley being beheaded — described what they called a “complicated operation” in which the commandos | Read More »
Obama’s Golf War
President Obama was so enraged by the evil doers’ terrorist murder of photojournalist James Foley that he interrupted his golf vacation and tried to sound stern for five minutes. According to the White House transcript, Obama’s obligatory statement on the “brutal murder of Jim Foley by the terrorist group, ISIL,” started at 12:52 P.M. EDT and ended at 12:57 P.M. EDT. Eight minutes later, after fighting | Read More »
Darkness and light
Try as I might, I can’t look at yellow and see purple. Light and darkness can’t both occupy the same space at the same time, and President Obama’s pre-golf remarks about ISIL can’t occupy the truth in the world in which we live.

Federal Judge: DOJ must turn over Fast and Furious Documents to Congress
In June of 2012, just months before the Presidential election, you might remember Obama trying to protect certain documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious from the House Oversight Committee by claiming executive privilege. Darrell Issa sued to have those documents released, and a federal judge has finally ruled that the DOJ must turn a log of the documents to Congress. Per Politico: Judge Amy | Read More »
