Obama’s wasted opportunity to counter “violent extremism.”
When Barack Obama gave closing remarks at the “summit on countering violent extremism” yesterday a several things were obvious. The most salient of which is that the conference was more focused on trying to troll domestic political opposition than countering terrorism… which apparently is what “violent extremism” is. The man has no ability to be reflective. While Obama spends a great deal of time in | Read More »
Obama seeks to defeat terrorism by wishing it away
The White House is holding a three-day “summit” on “countering violent extremism.” If there was ever need of more evidence that Barack Obama just doesn’t understand the problem, one need look no further than his op-ed in today’s Los Angeles Times on the subject. Let’s look at this rather amazing literary effort section by section. The United States has made significant gains against terrorism. We’ve | Read More »
As Obama Vacillates, ISIS Continues Its Brutal March to Europe’s Doorsteps
Earlier this morning, Erick did an excellent job explaining why Marie Harf and those who support the notion that we can’t win the war against ISIS by killing the bad guys “are damn naïve fools.” Her statements are not particularly surprising when you look at the contents of Obama’s laughable AUMF request for “war” on the Islamic State. I would go as far as saying that | Read More »

Killer idenfied in the random violence in #Copenhagen that happened randomly
The man responsible for killing two people in Copenhagen has been identified by Danish media. Wait for it. Omar El-Hussein (no word if he’s related to our president). Via AFP: The man suspected of killing two people in shootings in Copenhagen was identified in several Danish media outlets on Sunday as Omar El-Hussein. Ekstra-Bladet, a Danish tabloid, reported that the 22-year-old was released from jail | Read More »
Obama claims Paris attack was random violence
Shades of Fort Hood being declared “workplace violence” to avoid having to call it what is is, yet another in the unending series of Islamic terror attacks.

Barack Obama’s Harriet Miers moment. Seriously.
This is getting remarkable. We’re seeing some possibly unexpectedly hostile reactions to the administration’s decision not to send anybody to participate in France’s anti-terrorism unity march: Mike Lupica: “Everybody knows how complicated this country’s relationship with France has been, in war and in peace. Certainly there have been times when the leaders of France could have done better by us. We should have done better | Read More »
So, President Barack Obama skipped the French anti-terror unity march.
There is a very simple explanation for this: “President Barack Obama will not join other world leaders at Sunday’s Paris march in tribute to the victims of this week’s Islamist attacks in France, a US official told AFP.” Basically, President Obama legitimately and genuinely does not understand why it is necessary for him – or a sufficiently dignified surrogate* – to represent our country at | Read More »

Defiance and submission
Defiance is the opposite of submission. When submission is demanded, the only available options are absolute, unambiguous defiance, or some degree of compliance with the demand. Once you’re in compliance, only the degree of submission remains to be debated. This is particularly true when the demand for submission concerns a core principle, a veritable pillar of civilization, such as the right to free speech. Few | Read More »
Ron Paul on Paris terror attack: B****es had it coming
I try to ignore Ron Paul and his spawn as much as humanly possible but sometimes the doddering old fraud just goes too far. As a recap, Muslim terrorists, or at least everyone in the world thinks they are Muslim terrorists except the Obama administration, stormed the offices of a Parisian magazine that happens to poke fun at Islam and its Mohammed. People were killed. | Read More »
