Our Lord And Savior Emperor Barack I
In the Potemkin world of Hollywood, President Barack Obama is held in a level of esteem that good men of ages past would have deemed utterly blasphemous. Jamie Foxx describes him as “Our Lord and Savior.” His political enemies are demonized and ridiculed. “Mitches” don’t really believe anything and are basically all just racist.

Random Roundup Three
Random Roundup is going to my series of articles where there is a bunch of stuff I want to talk about, but don’t feel they belong in separate articles because of length. Stuff I will be talking about: Super Super Sunday, U.S. President Andrew Jackson and Barack Obama’s nonacquiescence, the upcoming Cambodian-Thai War, and a new Second Amendment bill introduce in the state of Florida.
History Can Show Obama The Way in Afghanistan
There is no better teacher than history. As President Obama begins his own surge policy in Afghanistan, it is important that our leaders heed the lessons of history. Throughout our nation’s history, there is no more glaring failure in wartime than Vietnam.
