Letting Allah Sort Out Islamic Civil War in Syria
As bankrupt as elected Republican leadership is in Washington vis-à-vis domestic policy, they are completely clueless as it relates to foreign policy. While America continues to become an economic and moral wasteland under this regime, Obama is attempting to spend American treasure helping one nefarious side of an Islamic civil war in Syria – one which involves Iran-allied supporters of Hezbollah (Assad regime) vs. predominantly | Read More »
Some Middle East Notes: Muslim Brotherhood Doublespeak, U.S. Involvement in Syria, and More
With the recent events in the Middle East and the continuing question of what, if any, role the U.S. should play, it’s a good idea to stay up to speed on current events in the region. My recent post “A Crisis of Faith in Egypt” was a start, but it’s a sad commentary on the turmoil in the region that, even since then, there is | Read More »

Egyptian regime thinking of outlawing Muslim Brotherhood. Again.
Danged if I know whether this would be smart, or not: The Egyptian government [...] announced it had begun deliberations on whether to ban the [Muslim] Brotherhood, a long-outlawed organization that swept to power in the country’s first democratic elections a year ago. Such a ban — which authorities say is rooted in the group’s use of violence — would be a repeat to the | Read More »
Muslim Brotherhood reaches out to Hezbollah.
Tell me again how marvelous it is that we encouraged the Muslim Brotherhood to take over in Egypt: “In a dramatic policy shift, Egypt will seek to forge “tight” relations with Hezbollah, Egyptian Ambassador to Lebanon Ashraf Hamdy revealed in a candid interview published Saturday in Lebanon’s Daily Star.” Such ‘tight’ relations will presumably include Hezbollah’s right to keep getting ready for that armed conflict | Read More »

Obama: ‘protecting’ American lady-parts. Egyptian ones? …Well, not so much.
Let’s connect the dots: One. This is from the official Tumblr of the Obama re-election campaign (click it fast, because it won’t be there soon): [UPDATE: Well, that was fast.] Two. We are giving aid to Egypt. Which is to say, we are giving Egypt $450 million of your tax money. Three. Egypt, of course, is run by the Muslim Brotherhood. This is what | Read More »
Barack Obama takes a page from the Muslim Brotherhood.
You may have noticed a little while back that the US Embassy in Cairo called out the Egyptian government/Muslim Brotherhood for saying one thing in English (read: Western foreign consumption) and another in Arabic (read: domestic/regional consumption). Which is all to the good… so why did the President do the same thing this week? The View: “In an interview with ABC’s “The View,” Obama — | Read More »
Obama vs. Obama on whether Egypt is an ally.
Barack Obama, 2012: Egypt is neither an ally nor an enemy of the United States, President Barack Obama said Wednesday in the wake of a violent protest at the US embassy in Cairo. “I don’t think that we would consider them an ally, but we don’t consider them an enemy,” Obama said in excerpts of an interview with Telemundo aired by MSNBC. Barack Obama, 2011: | Read More »
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 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 »
Can We Please Stop Funding the Muslim Bros?
While Obama is intervening in our free enterprise system to fundamentally alter our capitalist society at home, he his intervening on behalf of radical Islamists around the world and endangering our national security. In his effort to reach out to America’s enemies, Obama has emboldened the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, orchestrated an Islamist takeover of Libya that is reverberating throughout North Africa, thrown Israel overboard, | Read More »
The Arab Spring Gives Way To A Red Harvest
“The worse it gets, the better it is.” – Vladamir I Lenin. Imagine you possess a burning will to power. This intense desire to take over and run the nation you live in stems from a messianic complex mated with egocentric power lust to form the bastard offspring of revolutionary zeal. Yet a problem stands between you and your desire to inflict “30.06 enlightenment” on | Read More »
The Nobel Peace Prize, Falo Delle Vanita and The Zionist Regime
Bonfire of the Vanities (Italian: Falò delle vanità) refers to the burning of objects that are deemed to be occasions of sin. The most infamous one took place on 7 February 1497, when supporters of the Dominican priest Girolamo Savonarola collected and publicly burned thousands of objects like cosmetics, art, and books in Florence, Italy, on the Mardi Gras festival.

University of Central Florida Hosts Terrorists & Forcibly Removes Their Detractors
While it’s certainly the case that a University may host an event paneled by individuals that the University leadership does not agree with or even may find reprehensible, it starts to look more like endorsement when they get into the habit of tossing law abiding citizens for asking questions of the University guest that may be uncomfortable. Such was the case in the almost universally overlooked incident that | Read More »
