Obama is not a Hero…

    I am finding it hard to fathom why we are calling Obama a hero in the death of a terrorist, Osama Bin Laden. From all the news reports, it seems that it was our great military that carried out the mission, and put their lives on the line to protect each and every one of us. Don’t get me wrong, I am extremely glad that | Read More »

    On this day, with these words…

    Today was the day that Patrick Henry gave his “give me liberty, or give me death” speech. And while those words may seem appropriate to some given Sunday’s travesty, I find the words today of St. Thomas More even moreso: “If we lived in a state where virtue was profitable, common sense would make us saintly. But since we see that avarice, anger, pride, and | Read More »

    Remembering The Fallen At Fort Hood And The, “Peaceful,” Religion That Killed Them

    13 American soldiers are dead. 30 are wounded with some still holding on with life threatening wounds. A Major whose name I will not mention but has a Jordanian lineage is recovering from wounds received from the heroic soldier, a woman, whose actions stopped this mad mans carnage.

    Who are “The American People”?

    From the diaries by Caleb The President has a big problem. BIG problem. And, down deep in my soul I think this problem is going to make the current state of the economy look pretty good. Ten or fifteen percent unemployment will be no big deal. As I noted in a diary yesterday, a US soldier has been taken prisoner in Afghanistan by the Taliban. | Read More »

    The Last Full Measure Of Devotion

    They came from every corner of our nation representing our best and bravest. They fought in places whose names have become familiar to us not because the field had any great significance but because of what they so bravely did there. Places like Trenton, Valley Forge, Antietam, Gettysburg, the trenches of WWI, Iwo Jima, Normandy, Porkchop Hill, Inchon, Hamburger Hill, Basra, Kuwait City, Asadabad, Baghdad, | Read More »

    Obama Not The Hero In The Pirate Saga

    Captain Phillips is rescued. Three pirates are dead and another is in custody. Three Navy Seals expertly and flawlessly performed their duty in rescuing Phillips. Barack Obama as Commander in Chief authorized the use of force, “if Phillips was in danger.” So in liberal press accounts and commentary from liberal pundits who is the hero ? Barack Obama. Giving credit where credit is due, Obama | Read More »

    Calling Obama on His Hatred of the Military

    If anyone thinks Barack Obama is respectful or even cares about America’s heroes or the military should be shaking. Via Ed Morrissey, the Obama administration is planning on implementing a plan that came out last week, a plan to screw the heroes and private health insurance companies: The Obama administration recently revealed a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans | Read More »

    There are still heroes among us…

Colonel Ripley represented the very best that America has to offer, physically (he was a graduate of the US Army Ranger School, Airborne School, US Marine Corps recon school, and | Read More »
