Todd has been working on an investigative reporting Breaching America Series about the increase of illegal immigration of people from Islamic countries through Guatemala and Mexico. Since 9-11, homeland security agencies have caught thousands of “special interest | Read More »

    Timely technology?

    This airborne laser anti-missle system seems to be making good progress. Here’s some detail. Aloft over the Persian gulf, might this system neutralize the Iranian nuclear missle threat to Israel, and possibly to Europe? And aloft east of NoKor, might this system protect Japan? I’m unclear what kind of anti-missle system can protect SoKor, given the super-short missle flight times. Will the BHO administration snatch | Read More »

    Bush world barbarians at Obama’s Gates

    Originally published by Mike gamecock DeVine as Legal Editor for The Minority Report Barack Obama was the one, who was waiting for? Was it us, or Al Qaeda in India; Russian missiles near Poland and warships in Venezuela, respectively; and Iran near the bomb? Suddenly, post-Olympics, post-Election Day and especially post-intelligence briefing, President George W. Bush’s post-911 record doesn’t look so bad. Why else would | Read More »

    Iran is waiting Mr. President-elect

    The International Atomic Energy Agency revealed yesterday that Iran is stockpiling vast amounts of enriched uranium which is needed for for weapons-grade material and can be made into a nuclear weapon. The agency says that, as of this month, Tehran had amassed 630kg of low enriched uranium hexafluoride, up from 480kg in late August. Analysts say Iran is enriching uranium at such a pace that, | Read More »

    “….what could Obama offer Iran in exchange for an end to its nuclear program that Bush hasn’t already offered ?”

    That’s the crux of an article by Caroline B. Glick on The Jewish World Review website. This is a very serious article that speaks volumes about the people who are coming into power in The USA. “The Perils Ahead” by Caroline B. Glick – Jewish World Review website article. I’m trying to form some thoughts about this, but can’t seem to start anything without delving | Read More »

    Democrats Okay With Attacking Iran if Obama Says So

    It didn’t take long for the Democrats to get on board with their cult of Personality. Oh the irony!!

    Obama congratulated-by Ahmadinejad!

    November 07Obama congratulated by Ahmadinejad! Ahmadinejad offers congratulations to Obama Iran – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has congratulated Barak Obama on his election win — the first time an Iranian leader has offered such wishes to a U.S. president-elect since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Ahmadinejad sent a message to Obama in which he congratulated the Democrat on “attracting the majority of voters in the election.” The | Read More »

    The dawn of a new crisis

    And so it begins. Within hours of the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States of America, the world reacts. Not in unanimous jubilation. The enemies and potential enemies of America respond with threats. The friends of America respond with fear of wealth loss.

    Re: Well, That Didn’t Take Long…

    Nor did this: TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran warned U.S. forces in Iraq on Wednesday that it would respond to any violation of Iranian airspace, a message analysts said seemed directed at the new U.S. president-elect more than neighboring American troops. The Iranian army statement, reported by state radio, followed a cross-border raid last month by U.S. forces into Syria, a move that was condemned by | Read More »

    Still Undecided In This Election?

    Just ask yourself (or them, or anyone voting for Barack Obama), why is that Hamas, Hezbollah, The Taliban, Al-Qaeda, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Chavez, and every other miscreant on the face of the planet, are all salivating for a Barack Obama Presidency?

    Why not Obama?

    If Obama wasn’t an African-American he wasn’t going to be where he is in this race. The cosmopolitan part of America is matching the need for change with the change of race or color and not the ideas. Does this mean that if in need for change, America after 8 years should elect an Asian-American, Albanian-American, Latino-American, Native American or a woman? The only good | Read More »
