The Russian infringement of Turkish airspace is bigger than it seems
One of the many dangers of the grotesque lack of leadership shown by the Obama administration is that it gets a lot of people killed and raises the risk of a multi-national armed conflict breaking out for not particular policy end. This is not a case of Napoleon’s dictum about it being necessary to break eggs to make an omelet. Rather this what the Obama | Read More »
Obama cries ‘no más’ in Syria
Over the week end I posted on what I see to be the real Russian strategy in Syria: use highly provocative actions and statements to create a narrative that Russia is the dominant power and America is on the decline. This strategy is working because Obama apparently lives in a universe where everyone is working together to achieve what is good rather than the universe | Read More »

Hillary Clinton advocates war with Russia
For someone who allegedly has experience in foreign policy, Hillary Clinton is sounding like a bit of a numbskull.

Mom Jeans Foreign Policy
President Obama has done one remarkable thing in his time in office — he has made the American left turn a blind eye to human rights abuses around the world. American soldiers are being sent home for defending boys who are being raped by Afghan soldiers. Meanwhile, the left is peddling articles noting that pedophilia is just another lifestyle choice. Cuban dissidents are still imprisoned | Read More »
Russia, ISIS the Natural Consequences of President Obama’s Disastrous Foreign Policy
Russia’s power play in the Middle East, under the guise of targeting ISIS, is disastrous, dangerous, and deadly.
First, Russia’s aggression in Syria is on President Obama’s head. Second, elections have consequences, and we are only just now beginning to experience those disastrous consequences. Vladimir Putin’s insatiable quest for world power has run roughshod over President Obama’s intractable weakness.

How Donald Trump Could Be America’s Putin
Caesarism In America? There is no vocal advocate of Donald Trump’s GOP candidacy in 2016 that would tell you this publically, but I’ll bet $20 that a significant plurality of Trump’s backers feel what the women in this Youtube video below feel on a daily basis.

Obama’s Chairman of the Joint Chief nominee: Russia is an ‘existential threat’ to the United States
In the 2012 presidential debate between the congenitally smarmy and clownish Barack Obama and the hapless and fearful of offending Mitt Romney, Barack Obama leveled this charge against Romney: OBAMA: Governor Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that Al Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not Al Qaida; | Read More »

From the ‘Didn’t Think That One Through’ Files: Gay and Trans Pair Decide To Join ISIS

Tech at Night: Preserving American stewardship of the Internet
We can’t hand oversight of the Internet over to Russia. Much like how the US Navy secures the world’s waterways, so too do we secure the free flow of information on the global Internet. So the DOTCOM Act by Senators Rubio, Thune, and others seeks to constrain the President’s ability to cede oversight of ICANN and IANA, fundamental Internet organizations. I hope the House passes | Read More »
