Condescension and “A Legal Term of Art”
No matter if Obama was really correct or brutally honest in claiming Egypt 2012 is neither an ally or an enemy, I was struck that the way the Obama administration chose to walk this one back was to claim…well, it was all our fault. You see, President Obama can’t help it if he was a lawyer by trade. Kinda. A super-smart lawyer. Sometimes, you see | Read More »
NERO FIDDLED, OBAMA FUNDRAISED, Rome Burned on the 4th Day
Seeing the Oval Office vacant is nothing new to Americans. In fact, I personally saw it empty one day in 1976 as a White House guest during the tenure of Gerald Ford. But today the world burns as the President campaigns. The decline of the Roman Empire was not due to lack of military prowess but moral vacuity and ineptitude at the helm of leadership where | Read More »

Today only! Enter for a chance to join Jay-Z and Beyonce with the President in NYC!
You can’t make this stuff up. On a day when the Middle East is on fire (literally, as Joe Biden would say), the Obama for America – Ohio Facebook page thought it would be a great idea to cheer Obama’s faithful fans with this: Jay-Z and Beyoncé will be meeting up with the President for an evening in NYC sometime soon. And today only, you | Read More »
President Obama Skipped His Intel Brief the Day After the U.S. Ambassador to Libya was Murdered by Terrorists
Marc Thiessen provides a shocker in his Washington Post column: the day after America’s embassy in Cairo was assaulted and the consulate in Benghazi, Libya fell victim to an armed attack that killed four, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, the president once again skipped his intelligence briefing, choosing instead to fly off to Las Vegas to fundraise while the world continued to burn. This after being | Read More »
BREAKING: TWO US TROOPS KILLED IN LIBYA, In Addition to 4 Known Dead?
There is confusion today regarding not only the previous two unidentified Americans who died alongside Ambassador Stevens and information officer Sean Smith, but that two additional troops died in the rescue attempt in a highly coordinated attack on a US force responding to evacuate other Embassy personnel.* There was never any doubt in my mind that the two unidentified who | Read More »

The American Media Beclowned Themselves Yesterday
Yesterday, as the American consulate in Libya was smoking and the rioters were returning in Egypt, the President of the United States flew off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser while his spokesman was telling the American press corps that yesterday wasn’t really a normal political day. Had it been George W. Bush, the media would, right now, be marching on the White House with | Read More »
Obama Compares His Campaign Volunteers to those Killed at the Embassy in Libya
For all the talk about Mitt Romney being out of touch, you certainly don’t have to look very hard to find examples of President Obama demonstrating just how bad of a tin ear he has. Even worse, for Obama at least, is that his out of touch moments frequently manifest in the worst possible ways. We saw evidence of that earlier this week when Obama | Read More »
Only Strength Will Save America
America has lost its image of strength around the world because we have a weak and compliant leader. Yesterday’s events prove this point more than any words can say.

MARINES SENT “TO THE SHORES OF TRIPOLI” — The Land of USA’s First Foreign War
The Marine Corps Marching Hymn chorus rings in my ears today: “From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli…” Marines are the defenders of US Consulates and Embassies worldwide. Now, four of our countrymen, including the US Ambassador to Libya, were murdered last night in a conspiracy* of Muslim radicals and insiders. Today Marines have been sent in. BACK STORY The Marines first gained | Read More »
Mitt Romney’s remarks (link to video, including questions).
I personally would have been a good deal more cutting, but then I personally would never make it past the tryouts for the auditions for the contest to be President of the United States. The man understands the problem, which is not “Free speech is provocative,” and never mind what those racists in the progressive antiwar movement think.

Why Do They Hate Us? Because It Works Like Hell.
People seem perplexed as to how to get what they want from our president. They claim he is aloof, out of touch and too busy fundraising with Flo-Rida and “Pimp with a limp” to properly attend to their dearest desires. Fortunately for all five or six of my constant readers, I’ve discovered the key to getting whatever you want out of Barack Obama. You beat the man into submission when he is most vulnerable. If you are nice to him instead, you will be considered weak and urinated upon accordingly.

Mitt Romney Should Raise These Questions
Mitt Romney is in a difficult position. On September 11, 2012, radical Islamists stormed the American Embassy in Cairo, tore down and burned the American flag, and hoisted a black flag associated with Al Qaeda. In Libya, radical Islamists did the same, but also set the embassy on fire, fired rockets, and killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and at least three other State Department employees. The | Read More »
The response to Embassy Attacks that I WISH we saw
The United States of America believes that all Americans have the right to express themselves as they wish, and that the validity of their thoughts will stand or fall in the free marketplace of ideas. We believe that the strongest and most noble ideas are impervious to distortion and that they rise above iniquity. They appeal to our common humanity and they do not need | Read More »
The World is Burning
In the last 24 hours, the U.S. has observed the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks; a violent mob has assaulted the American Embassy in Cairo, ripping down the stars and stripes and attempting to raise an al Qaeda flag in its place (while the embassy staff tweeted their abject apologies); and an organized attack has been carried out on the American consulate in Benghazi, | Read More »
