The Tragedy of the War on Our Sovereignty
If you think the debate over illegal immigration revolves strictly around the disagreement over what to do with those already here illegally, you haven’t been paying attention. For anyone who really wants to end illegal immigration and preserve our sovereignty, the solution is not an enigma. All we have to do is actually implement the border and interior enforcement mechanisms that both Republicans and Democrats claim to | Read More »
Stand with Ted Cruz Against Iran Making a Terrorist its UN Ambassdor
Iran, being the ever-present thorn in our side that it is, has decided that Hamid Aboutalebi should be its next UN Ambassador. It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Mr. Aboutalebi has a shady past, to say the least. In fact, he was connected to the 1979 Tehran Embassy Takeover should be its next UN Ambassador. . As the International Business Times notes: The | Read More »
Only 37 percent of Americans are confident Obama will make the right decisions
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that only 37 percent of Americans are confident that President Obama will make the right decisions for the country’s future, while 63 percent are not. According to the Washington Post, those numbers are the mirror image of what they were when Obama was sworn into office in 2009 and lower than at any other time the question was asked by the | Read More »
Alan Grayson (D, FL), Barbara Lee (D, CA), & Jan Schakowsky (D, IL) tried to consult with terrorist-led group on drone strikes.
There are two problems with this. Mohammad Al Ahmady, the Yemen director for Geneva-based NGO Al Karama, was expected to brief Reps. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.), Barbara Lee (D., Calif.), and Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.) the morning of the Nov. 19, according to press release from Grayson’s office. Several Al Karama officials have faced terrorism allegations. Al Karama’s founder and current president Abdul Rahman Naimi | Read More »
Obama: If Iran likes their nuke policy, they can keep it. Period.
But I’ll bet the Appeaser-in-Chief keeps this “you-can-keep-your-policy” promise unlike the one made to Americans under the domestic equivalent of the bomb, known as Obamacare. President Barack Obama is a serial liar but, like a stopped clock, occasionally also tells the truth. For instance, he promised skyrocketing energy prices. They set a record high in October. He promised to bankrupt the coal industry with new | Read More »
Why Films about Mexico’s Drug Cartel Should Matter to Americans
The power of Film is undeniable over the last 100 years. We remember the great films because we sit in a dark theater, focused on the screen with other human beings. It’s a bit of a religious experience. This viewing experience has certainly changed with DVD’s, the Internet and smartphones – but the impact of the moving image remains as vibrant and intense | Read More »
Captured AQ leader great news, but why do we know it?
I have read a few places this morning that we captured an AQ leader in Tripoli Libya. That news in and of itself is a great thing. We can interrogate him – turns out no Miranda issued yet – and hopefully get some real intelligence that can be used. That of course is a fallacy. Abu Anas al-Libi was taken off the streets of Libya | Read More »
A Disturbing Islamic Trend and American Silence
While the world stopped and waited for an American attack on Syria which never came, a more ominous series of events goes largely unnoticed by the media every day. There are very few front page stories about the horrors befalling those of the Christian faith in the Holy Land and throughout the Middle East from Pakistan to Nigeria. These events are happening daily, yet while | Read More »
The Votes For Syria and Immigration Reform Exist In Congress
Last June, the U.S. Senate overwhelming passed immigration reform by a vote of 68-32. Yet, many commentators noted that it’s DOA in the House. Similarly, the president’s recent plea to Congress to approve a resolution authorizing him to use military force in Syria seems like a long shot as well. A rough count of the votes has 25 senators – 18 Democrats and 7 Republicans – voting/leaning yes, with | Read More »

Capitol City Project, MRCTV Go To Million Muslim March, Find It’s Mostly 9/11 Truthers
The Capitol City Project’s Joe Schoffstall and MRCTV’s Dan Joseph decided to speak with Cornel West and a few 9/11 truthers at the Million Muslim March yesterday. And by “million,” I mean twenty-five people.
Obama’s Syria Speech Shows What We Haven’t Learned From 9/11
So what can we learn from all this going forward?
1) Don’t draw a Red Line unless you’ve got a nice “or else” ready if the other guy snorts it up off the floor.
2) People outside the constraints of Judeo-Christian morality will resort to WMDs, terrorism and anything else if force pays off better than Pacifism.
3) Military action of too small an order of magnitude to enter into the risk-reward mathematics of a would-be terrorist will only piss them off instead of deterring them.
President Obama failed all three of these lessons. As long as our nation remains this ignorant of the lessons of 9/11, we can expect more terrorism. It works like Hell.

Libya Foreign Ministry building bombed by terrorists, 9/11/2013.
Details are still sketchy: Security officials say a powerful explosion has caused serious damage to Libya’s Foreign Ministry building in the heart of the coastal city of Benghazi. The early Wednesday morning blast also damaged the building next door housing the Benghazi branch of the Libyan Central Bank. …and there’s no word yet whether this bombing was specifically done in commemoration of last year’s 9/11 | Read More »
Libya: Obama’s other foreign-policy disaster
The Weekly Standard offers a glum assessment of Obama’s fiasco in Syria: “With the Russian proposal on Syrian chemical weapons, the United States is being escorted out of the Middle East.” Reset with Russia was originally a strategic priority for the Obama administration because it saw Moscow as the key to getting Iran to come to the negotiating table. Putin, from the White House’s perspective, was destined | Read More »
Clown-In-Chief: Obama Needs To ‘Feel Strongly Enough…To Move Forward’ On Syria
President Obama did a media offensive last night on Syria by granting interviews with ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox, NBC and PBS. During the president’s interview with NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie, he showed once again that his foreign policy is ambiguous, amorphous, and lacks teeth. He also added that the First Lady doesn’t want to go to war with Syria either Yet, after establishing a red line | Read More »
