America is Absolutely Schizophrenic

Charles Boustany: The Most Pro-Palestinian Republican in Congress

Do Straw Men Have Free Speech?
President Barack Obama took to the UN podium on Tuesday and lied, blaming an American’s exercise of free speech for the death of Obama’s own Ambassador. He also stood before that august body of Islamists, antisemites, tyrants, socialists, and corrupt panderers and told America’s sworn enemies that the future is theirs. In continuing to blame the video and attack it, Obama is using his usual straw man tactics. | Read More »
Barack Obama takes a page from the Muslim Brotherhood.
You may have noticed a little while back that the US Embassy in Cairo called out the Egyptian government/Muslim Brotherhood for saying one thing in English (read: Western foreign consumption) and another in Arabic (read: domestic/regional consumption). Which is all to the good… so why did the President do the same thing this week? The View: “In an interview with ABC’s “The View,” Obama — | Read More »

Must Egypt hold 52 Americans for 444 days before we cut off aid?
President Barack Hussein Obama is no James Earl Carter Before “extremists” overthrew the America’s ally in the Shah of Iran, then President Carter signaled his willingness, and even desire, to work with the Ayatollah Khomeini, since he was a “religious” man. Before the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, Carter famously chided his fellow Americans for their “inordinate fear” of Communism. But, unlike the Citizen of the World | Read More »
Obama and his ‘Friends’
This past week our nation remembered the eleventh anniversary of September 11th 2001, the day when thousands of our countrymen died at the hands of Muslim extremists. We all remember where we were, what happened that day and the horrifying days that followed when we realized the widespread effects of this. Most of us felt insecure and endangered. But we had a strong, capable leader | Read More »

Call for Vengeance
The most recent acts of jihad against the United States should obliterate any lingering reluctance to admit the Islamic war against the United States of America. Double-talking Mohamadans and traitorous apologists for Islam inside American borders have spent the past eleven years since the jihadist attacks on the eleventh of September of 2001 obfuscating and lying about the inherent malignancy of Islam and its enmity | Read More »

Condescension and “A Legal Term of Art”
No matter if Obama was really correct or brutally honest in claiming Egypt 2012 is neither an ally or an enemy, I was struck that the way the Obama administration chose to walk this one back was to claim…well, it was all our fault. You see, President Obama can’t help it if he was a lawyer by trade. Kinda. A super-smart lawyer. Sometimes, you see | Read More »
President @BarackObama: #Egypt May Or May Not Be An Ally
