Obama, the Weak Horse

    Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today. Soon upon us will be the one-year anniversary of President Obama’s inauguration.  It’s time to ask, are we safer or in more danger than we were a year ago?   By every objective measure — what we know about Islamic terrorism, its intentions and capabilities — the answer is no. We are far less safe | Read More »

    No Civilian Trials for Terrorists

    Good post by Jed Babbin over at Human Events. Americans are often smarter than those they elect to govern them.  According to a December 31 Rasmussen poll, “Fifty-eight percent (58%) of U.S. voters say waterboarding and other aggressive interrogation techniques should be used to gain information from the terrorist who attempted to bomb an airliner on Christmas Day.” Instead of being shipped off to Guantanamo | Read More »

    Merge the ‘Terror’ Lists to Prevent the Next Attack

    Great piece by Jed Babbin over at Human Events today. It would be satisfying — and manifestly just — for President Obama to fire Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.  She abjures the “politics of fear,” and prefers the term “man-caused disasters” to the word “terrorism.” And it was her risible reaction to the failed Christmas Day attack (“the system worked”) that redundantly proved her unfit | Read More »

    Recess Leadership

    Jed Babbin has today’s top story at Human Events. Today the Senate will drop its huge lump of coal in our Christmas stockings by passing Harry Reid’s version of the Obamacare bill. And when it’s done, its members can join the already-recessed House for their much-anticipated if not well-earned Christmas vacation.  Congressional recesses, especially the Christmas break, were short vacations from politics until Bill Clinton | Read More »

    Obama’s Assault on Economic Freedom

    Great piece by Jed Babbin over at Human Events. Yesterday, President Obama’s two principal economic advisors — National Economic Council Director Larry Summers and Council of Economic Advisors chair Christina Roemer — gave us a glimpse into the continued tumult in the White House’s over how to restart America’s economic engines.  Summers said, “Today, everybody agrees that the recession is over, and the question is | Read More »

    Don’t Court Martial the SEAL Three

    We’ve written about this before. Over at Human Events, Jed Babbin has more. December 7th is usually a day we remember the brave men who died at Pearl Harbor.  Many of them died fighting, responding instantly to the cowardly Japanese attack that  came without warning.  This is a day to honor bravery, resolve and sacrifice.  But this December 7th is different.  Today — because lawyers | Read More »

    Roll Obama Back

    Jed Babbin has the top story today at Human Events. Many of President Obama’s critics argue that he and Democratic congressional leaders are out of touch with America.  That judgment is both too harsh and too kind.It’s too harsh because President Obama congressional Democrats are already reacting to the Tea Partyers’ rebellion against his massive increases in government spending. It’s too kind because the president, | Read More »

    Mr. Obama’s War

    Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today. Scattered among the first breaking news reports of the Fort Hood massacre were statements by FBI sources that there was no terrorist connection to Maj. Nidal Hasan’s jihadist murder of his fellow soldiers. Why?Three days after the murders, Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey told a CNN interviewer, “Our diversity, not only in our | Read More »

    Pelosi’s Kamikazes?

    Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today. Compared to Nancy Pelosi, former House Majority Leader Tom “The Hammer” DeLay was a pussycat. Speaker Pelosi means to force doubtful Dems to vote for the health care nationalization bill this week or next. But her tactic is anti-historical: she doesn’t remember that in World War Two, Japanese kamikaze pilots were all volunteers.  Pelosi is | Read More »

    The Obama-McChrystal Gap

    Jed has today’s top story at Human Events. What is the life of an American soldier worth?  President Obama apparently values it as little as he values defeating our enemies in Afghanistan.The gap between President Obama’s thinking on Afghanistan and that of his chosen commander there, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, has grown from a crevice to a canyon.  Unless President Obama is quickly brought to understand | Read More »

    Lyndon Baines Obama

    Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today on Obama’s plans in Afghanistan.

    Waltzing McChrystal

    Jed Babbin has more on General Stanley McChrystal and the run around he is getting from the White House.

    Latimer the Liberator?

    Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events. f Matt Latimer’s new book had been released a few weeks ago, the Tea Party marchers would have hoisted him onto their shoulders and carried him — laughing and cheering — all the way up Capitol Hill. Laughing, because Latimer’s new book,Speech-less: Tales of a White House Survivor, renews conservatives’ license to chuckle at ourselves. Cheering, | Read More »

    Obama’s Anger Weakens Him, and Us

    Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today. The anger that seemed President Obama’s central theme in his September 9 speech to Congress was palpable, almost shocking.  He demanded action now, and threatened to “call out” those who — he claimed — were spreading falsehoods about his healthcare nationalization plans.   Obama does not seem to realize that the fire and brimstone of | Read More »

    The RIGHT Alternatives

    Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today. He’s looking at conservative alternatives to the Democrats’ healthcare ideas. After a disastrous August recess for the president’s Obamacare plan, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority leader Harry Reid will call Congress back into session today.  Did they learn anything during “teachable August”?  Apparently not. The national unemployment rate is still rising (exceeding the worst | Read More »
