Benghazi and Connecting the Dots
With any tragedy resulting in the death of four Americans, including a US Ambassador, that was Benghazi, the Obama administration has come under some serious criticism from many on the right. One can go to any number of conservative websites right now and be confronted with an on-line petition to impeach Obama over this tragedy. But, we need to backtrack a little bit here.

Still think Obama doesn’t love sister-enslaving-Sharia Islamists yet?
Still think President Obama was ignorant of Rev. Wright’s hate speech for 20 years, Muslim Brotherhood ties to al Qaeda, that the Stimulus would stimulate and that Obamacare would ensure you could keep private health insurance plans you liked before its passage into law? I didn’t think so, and all of the above was clearly discernible before his re-election eight months ago, much less over | Read More »

A Closer Look at Obama’s Foreign Policies
With everything going on at home, it’s hard to keep track of things going on overseas. We try remembering the civil war in Syria, but with the IRS, NSA, Edward Snowden, immigration reform and other issues, it gets lost in the shuffle. However, there are still calls for Barack Obama to do something more in Syria. Everyone wants a resolution, in some way, shape or | Read More »
Democrat Fools on al Qaeda’s Syrian Hill
Bill Clinton says jump and Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama’s administration asks, how high? [Former President] Bill Clinton told Sen. John McCain he agrees that President Barack Obama should act more forcefully to support anti-Assad rebels in Syria, saying the American public elects presidents and members of Congress “to see down the road” and “to win.” At another point during a closed-press event Tuesday, Clinton implied that Obama or any president | Read More »

The Enemy of my Enemy is Probably Still My Enemy
So we read (linked from Drudge) the following: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57589252/u.s.-syria-used-chemical-weapons-crossing-red-line/ “The president has made a decision about providing more support to the opposition that will involve providing direct support to the [Supreme Military Council]. That includes military support,” I don’t agree with this action, but hey, I am just one of the American Rebels. Then we read (link from Drudge) a little farther down the page: | Read More »
American Abortion Depravity versus Syrian Cannibalism
We sit by and watch the Barbarian, we tolerate him; in the long stretches of peace we are not afraid. We are tickled by his irreverence, his comic inversion of our old certitudes and our fixed creeds refreshes us; we laugh. But as we laugh we are watched by large and awful faces from beyond: and on these faces there is no smile.
– (HT:Hilaire Belloc)
The fridge had been totally nuked. The Jihadist Warlord Abu Sakkar tore off the fig leaf of civilization and revealed the gibbering, demonic barbarian behind the thin veneer of every civilized human being. Hit the play button below if you have a pretty strong stomach and your co-workers won’t get too upset. This ain’t your typical rugby party stunt. While not quite The Donner Party; it’s close enough for post-modernism.

Shocked, Shocked! By Michael Goodell http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com When President Barack Obama weighed in today on the rapidly unfolding IRS scandal, I was reminded of the classic film, “Casablanca.” “If in fact IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that’s outrageous,” declared the scandal-plagued Obama. “And there’s no place for it.” You may recall | Read More »
National Security: Yes, Yes, Yes, No and Maybe. Sadly it’s a Partisian Issue.
Well now we know. The Sunday shows made it crystal clear that national security is mostly based upon Party affiliation and protection of the president by the Left but then again, what’s new in our twisted political world. It’s hinged upon gun control per a leading Democrat, Sen. Durbin. He said: ” background checks will make us a safer nation”, referencing the gun control bills that failed. On the Boston bombing he said, | Read More »
Iraq’s Descent Back into Civil War Makes the Case for American Energy Independence
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
-George Santayana (HT: Wikiquote)
America now faces a typical conundrum that has plagued all of our recent Presidents from Dwight D. Eisenhower all the way forward to President Barack Obama. We depend upon the Middle East for much of the energy that provides our motive power. As a result of this debilitating dependence upon people who hate us and practice a system of ethics and morals totally alien to our own, we are increasingly compromised and forced into courses of action that do not benefit our national commonweal. If we produce enough of our own energy, while curbing our domestic consumption, we can break this cycle of self-sabotage. If we don’t break the cycle, every US President going forward will wage his own, pointless version of a Punic War in Western Asia. I describe the current state of play below.

War What is it Good For
The President of Afghanistan, the man we installed and the leader of a land that is a nation in name only recently accused the United States of colluding with the Taliban to keep the war going. According to his spokesman, “The people of Afghanistan ask NATO to define the purpose and aim of the so-called war on terror… (They) consider this war as aimless and | Read More »

You Are No Longer A Neoconservative Moe
I honestly don’t like the term neoconservative, because it used to applied to liberals who agreed with Ronald Reagan in the ’80s and is now used by liberals to described compassionate-conservative, super-hawks. But whatever, let’s say the term is correctly used right now (which I will NOT conced). By your own omission, you have actually shifted from being a neoconservative to conservative. Let me explain: | Read More »
Hillary’s irrelevant testimony, WMD intel and Matt Ryan
No intel could have proven that Saddam had no WMD and no words from the Secretary of State’s lips can render her incompetent performance competent Matt Ryan is a generally competent NFL quarterback who has led my Atlanta Falcons to their best consecutive seasons’ run since he took over for Michael Vick five years ago. But I saw his two turnovers in the second half | Read More »
Judges, not Hagel, should be denied Senate deference
Americans just re-elected a President that shares the views of his nominee for Secretary of Defense To hear most Senate Republicans and not a few Democrats advise of a reluctance to consent to the appointment of former Senator Chuck Hagel to head the Pentagon, one would imagine that President Barack Obama is the best friend Israel ever had; was about to go to war with | 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 »
