Franklin Roosevelt rolled his wheelchair into Germany and debated Adolph Hitler. At the end of the debate, the Germans smacked themselves upside the head, recognized | Read More »
The New Plan to Defeat ISIS
I suppose it had to happen. Legalizing and making mandatory the celebration of homosexual marriage has been touted as the cure for everything from a sagging economy to boils on the ass. Many on our own side are happy because now we can get on with the real issues. I’m still not sure what those issues are or why it was necessary to destroy Western | Read More »
From the ‘Didn’t Think That One Through’ Files: Gay and Trans Pair Decide To Join ISIS
This is either the story of the dumbest people on the planet, or the plot for a totally edgy sitcom that I cannot WAIT to watch. Except in either case, it’s bound to be cancelled pretty soon, and not with a happy ending According to the Daily Mail, a Russian “transsexual and her gay friend,” feeling oppressed in Russia and enamored of online ISIS propaganda | Read More »
If President Obama Has No Strategy Yet To Fight ISIS, Why Is He Sending 500 More Soldiers To Fight ISIS?
Motto Of The Obama Foreign Policy President Barack Obama could end his Potemkin war against ISIS in one of two ways. He could annihilate the enemy, or he could write off Iraq and Syria. This is a tough leadership decision that a real leader would agonize over. Barack Obama in no way resembles a real leader. He will take the easy | Read More »
Iowa GOP doubles down on pay-to-play
The Iowa GOP is rather flustered that they are bleeding support for their pay-to-play system, more colloquially known as the Iowa Straw Poll. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92%, Jeb Bush, and Mike Huckabee have all said they won’t be spending money there, and others have said they weren’t sure. The straw poll hasn’t been a great source of accuracy when it comes | Read More »
This Way Comes
“The difference between Bush’s mistakes and his disappointments may just be that he hasn’t yet taken ownership of the latter,” Massimo Calabresi wrote in Time as he covered President George W. Bush’s final press conference in January of 2009. Four years earlier, left-wing journalist John Dickerson had begun a trend among the Bush White House press corps, demanding from the President a recognition of his | Read More »
Obama 2012: I Ended The War. Obama 2015: Only The USA Patriot Act Can Save Us!
He’s Here To save Us! President Barack Obama bragged during his 2012 Reelection Campaign that he ended the war in Iraq. GM alive, Bin Laden dead, Barack Obama 2012!

Tech at Night: Rand Paul wins more privacy for the Islamic State
Part of the USA PATRIOT act ensured NSA could check up on conversations foreigners were having, that involved data passing into America, by going to the FISA courts and getting a warrant. After 9/11, when terrorist cells came here and murdered many Americans, we understood the need for that. Well, some Republicans remembered, but Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 87% forgot, and it | Read More »

The Culture War is Upon You, Whether You Want it or Not
With the fall of Ramadi to ISIS over the weekend, many foreign policy analysts are scrambling to assign and apportion blame between George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and various other recent key players for the slow-rolling failure of the current Iraqi state.

My moment of candor this Friday
Were it me, I would not engage in the style of publicity and antics Pamela Geller and her organization engaged it. I take to heart Proverbs 3:34 that “He mocks proud mockers but shows favor to the humble and oppressed.” I also take the golden rule to heart. I appreciate the point Martha McCallum and Franklin Graham made. Just because we have the right, does | Read More »
Yes and But In the Wrong Order
Last week in Garland, TX, a lady named Pamela Geller sponsored an event about Islam, a component of which included drawing cartoons of the prophet Mohammed. While muslims in prior centuries painted Mohammed and some muslims still think it is okay to draw Mohammed, most muslims around the world condemn the drawing of any image purporting to be the likeness of Mohammed. Though not technically | Read More »
After Garland, free speech not violent extremism is under attack.
For people who constantly bleat about free speech and things “chilling” debate, the American left has gone full-bore Trotskyite in the wake of the terrorist attack in Garland, Texas. Instead of asking reasonable questions (like: why are we coddling obvious terrorists? why is an American Muslim congressman trying to prevent someone from obtaining a visa to the US based on their beliefs? and, yes, why | Read More »
