Status Quo Still Reigns Over at the VA
It’s been over a year since the Veterans’ Affairs healthcare scandal broke, and despite promises of change from the Obama administration, it looks like the old status quo still reigns at the department. The government’s Office of Special Counsel, a watchdog group in the government looking into the matter, has discovered that the VA has failed to properly discipline employees who played a role in the | Read More »
Britain’s Daily Mail Shows How Easy it is to Obtain Fraudulent Syrian Documents
I’ve been on record here before about how the United States should be more proactive in granting asylum to Middle Eastern refugees, but the present situation in Europe and the Middle East is problematic for more than just the gigantic scope of the crisis. David Cameron has promised that Britain will take in up to 20,000 refugees, but a Daily Mail article from Tuesday reports that | Read More »

Blame Hillary, Says Obama, As He Passes the Buck
Barack Obama is the Steve Urkel of American politics. “Did I do that?” he whines. No, it is not his fault. If you have not heard, Barack Obama came up with a brilliant plan to fight ISIS. Instead of actually just blowing them up, he decided to spend the time training Syrian rebels. All sorts of people ridiculed his plan. And now, after millions and | Read More »
Are We Not Going to Admit This is a PR Driven Story?
Let’s admit up front that it is stupid that a ninth grader got arrested for making a clock and bringing it to school. They thought it was a bomb. I will not imply motives to the kid bringing his cool invention to school. I would note, however, it was a government school and we can probably further indict public schools for it. But I have | Read More »
Become a Woman For Free!!
Firs the Obama Administration began pressuring public school systems. If the school systems wanted to keep federal money coming in, they needed to allow boys to use the girls’ bathroom if the boys decided they were girls. Parents did not like it, but in suburban Northern Virginia, the school board told the parents to go to hell and told the boys to get on in | Read More »
Let us stop pretending that the Iraq War was the Worst Thing Ever.
Stop pretending that the Iraq War was the worst disaster to ever befall America. Or even that it was particularly a disaster at all. At least, under Bush.

The Predicate Act
Fourteen years ago this morning, hell flew out of the clear blue skies careening into tall buildings in New York City, careening into the Pentagon, and careening into a field in Pennsylvania. We have been at war ever since. The monstrous acts this day fourteen years ago led to the toppling of a regime in Afghanistan and Iraq. Today, the left says if only George | Read More »
10,000 Refugees: The Net Result of Barack Obama’s Inaction
Barack Obama drew several lines in the sand that Syria kept crossing. He laughed off helping the rebels against Syria until he had to do something. Then he armed a bunch of rebels who sided with ISIS. The situation in Syria has continued to destablize. Barack Obama’s answer was to help the people help themselves. We were not going to fight for them. They were | Read More »
Why Donald Trump Is Seemingly Bulletproof
So let’s say a big passel of trouble comes a-rolling in your direction. It flattens the barn, trashes the crops, eats your loyal pet dog the way a fat SEC football fan would down a tray of nachos. It seems there’s just no stopping it and the hits keep a-coming. So how do you maneuver yourself off the hook? You probably can’t. You get some | Read More »
Is the Intelligence Community whitewashing ISIS reports?
If this pans out… well, good lord. More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military’s Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned. The complaints spurred the Pentagon’s inspector general to open an investigation into the alleged manipulation of intelligence. The fact | Read More »
Millennials + Election 2016: They’ll Be Voting
There are approximately fourteen months left before the presidential election, and for that, we are all thankful. Between now and November 2016, much more can and will happen. While pinpointing the apparent loyalty a certain group has for a candidate in September 2015 might be premature, an early and obvious build-up says something. If there’s one generation that receives generally negative attention, it is the | Read More »
The Blood on Barack Obama’s Hands
The warning signs were there in 2009. President Manuel Zelaya of Honduras sought a referendum to change the Constitution of Honduras to allow himself a longer tenure in office. The Honduran Constitution permanently bars multiple terms and it is not an amendable provision of the nation’s constitution. The Honduran Supreme Court ruled that Zelaya had overstepped his bounds and Zelaya sought to stir up civil | Read More »
Be Wary of the Refugee Crisis
I write this with the full knowledge that the bleeding hearts of the world will frown upon it, but it is an alternative side of the refugee crisis in Syria that we must be wary of. It is an absolutely terrible crisis that we need to pray for, and we do need to see that these people who have fled their homes because of the devastating | Read More »
A Nation of Laws No More
When five largely unrepresentative and unaccountable people can decide to impose their moral values on a nation of 320 million, we really are not a nation of laws, but a nation of men. When clerks in Washington, D.C. can deny citizens access to guns, despite there being an individual, constitutional right, we really are not a nation of laws, but a nation of men. When | Read More »
That Dead Boy is Barack Obama’s Fault
ISIS did not exist when George W. Bush left the White House. ISIS did not exist in the first few years of Barack Obama’s time in the White House. ISIS only became a thing when the White House, out of pride and arrogance, decided it was better to placate the left by withdrawing all troops from Iraq rather than help the Iraqis maintain their stability. | Read More »
