More ISIS Barbarism: This Time it’s Church Desecration

    More ISIS Barbarism: This Time it's Church Desecration

    A few days ago, I wrote about ISIS slaughtering women for refusing to have sex with them and the group’s extremely brutal penal code. However, their inhumanity does not stop there. Yesterday, Fox News reported on even more of their heinous deeds. This time it’s about ISIS selling Christian artifacts and turning churches into torture chambers. Here’s what they say: The Islamic State is turning | Read More »

    ISIS Continues their Brutal Barbarism in the Middle East

    ISIS Continues their Brutal Barbarism in the Middle East

    In this image (obtained from Wikipedia), the gray area is the territory controlled by ISIS. A couple of weeks ago, ISIS made news for martyring children who refused to renounce their Christian faith. This story was hardly surprising, and in fact, it was depressingly only one of the smaller outrages against humanity they’ve committed. Not content to stop there, we’ve received news this week of | Read More »

    Obama shows no leadership on fight with ISIS

    Earlier in the week the White House sent the low-wattage to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to ask the Senate to pass an authorization for the use of military force against ISIS. It has been clear from the start that Obama really doesn’t care about ISIS. He is concerned that his legacy, other than trashing the US economy and ruining every alliance the nation had | Read More »

    Why does Obama’s crisis management suck?

    Why does Obama's crisis management suck?

    An article in Business Week titled Obama Is Too Cool for Crisis Management (@JoshuaGreen) uses the administration’s management of the Ebola crisis, a crisis that is 100% the creation of the administration, to criticize how Obama has responded to the non-ending series of crises his administration has faced. Despite the title the article is generally positive. It blames the public for not understanding Obama. It | Read More »

    This is Horrifying

    This is Horrifying

    As you know by now, ISIS was able to capture a military shipment dropped into the Syrian/Iraq area that was meant for Kurds. The shipment of weapons and supplies for the Kurds was intended for use combatting ISIS. What is so horrifying about all this is why the Department of Defense says ISIS capturing the pallet of supplies is “not significant.” Here is Jim Sciutto | Read More »

    Arab Spring: the gift that keeps on giving

    Arab Spring: the gift that keeps on giving

    When the Obama regime engineered the overthrow of the governments of Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt during the much ballyhooed “Arab Spring” the administration did not have a strategic or geopolitical goal in mind, rather it was carried out strictly in the service of domestic politics. Obama wanted to prove that he was the “anti-Bush.” He wanted to demonstrate the efficacy of “smart power.” And he | Read More »

    Don’t worry about Ebola because everything else is working fine

    Don't worry about Ebola because everything else is working fine

    Now that the administration’s campaign to stop the spread of Ebola and “degrade and destroy” ISIS are going so swimmingly, let’s take a quick look at how Obama is kicking major butt in the rest of the world. Back in July, I posted on how Hungary was moving slowly and inexorably into Moscow’s orbit. NATO, for the Democrats reading this, is a NATO member. Moscow | Read More »

    The Wolf

    The Wolf

    The boy who cried wolf eventually learned his lesson. After rallying the countryside for his amusement several times, a wolf did show up. By that time the villagers no longer believed him. The wolf ate the sheep. For six years in Washington, D.C., in an effort to never let a crisis go to waste, President Obama has been in perpetual campaign mode, always on offense, | Read More »

    The Blood on Obama’s Hands

    The Blood on Obama’s Hands

    When conservatives consider the casualties of Obama’s national security policies, their attention is drawn quite naturally to Benghazi. In this shameful episode, the Obama Administration sacrificed an ambassador and three American heroes to protect a deceptive presidential campaign message in which Obama claimed that the war against al-Qaeda was over and won (“Osama bin Laden is dead, and al-Qaeda is on the run”). The facts | Read More »

    The President Who Cried Wolf

    The President Who Cried Wolf

    ISIS was just a group of amateurs. They were the junior varsity team. Now they are overrunning Iraq. But the President told us that. We could keep our doctor if we wanted to. The President told us that. Insurance rates would not go up and no one would lose their insurance. The President told us that too. He also said the Syrian rebels were too | Read More »

    Liberal Vs. Progressive: Reality Vs. Delusion On ISIS.

    Liberal Vs. Progressive:  Reality Vs. Delusion On ISIS.

    I included the Youtube scene from the Movie Cloverfield for reasons other than the fact that I truly enjoy popping that DVD into my machine during a long flight. It also gives us a nice analogy to how America’s current Democratic Party reelection campaign of ineffective and symbolic airstrikes against ISIS has actually worked so far in suppressing the latest incarnation of Middle Eastern menace. | Read More »

    ISIS and the mystery of the jihadi brides

    ISIS and the mystery of the jihadi brides

    A couple of Austrian girls are seeking a do-over, so to speak: Two Austrian teens got way more than they bargained for when they abandoned their homes and families to become “poster girls” for ISIS terrorists, and now they desperately want to come home. Samra Kesinovic, 17, and friend Sabina Selimovic, 15, would love to press the undo button on the last six months, during | Read More »

    Iraq requests US troops. Maybe...

    The Telegraph is running a wonderfully intriguing but frustratingly un-sourced story claiming that the Iraq government has requested US troops to stem the advance of ISIS: Iraqi officials have issued a desperate plea for America to bring US ground troops back to the embattled country, as heavily armed Islamic State militants came within striking distance of Baghdad. Amid reports that Isil forces have advanced as | Read More »

    Obama’s ISIS strategy enters Chernobyl phase

    Obama's ISIS strategy enters Chernobyl phase

    When Barack Obama decided to abandon US involvement in Iraq, he may not have set off the current crisis but he certainly made it possible. Now, as the situation worsens day by day, the options available to the administration become fewer and less pleasant. The silver bullet the administration has sought has been an indigenous ground force in Syria that can fight al-Qaeda, ISIS, and | Read More »
