Origin of Joe Stack’s “From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed”
Did I ever tell anyone here that my wife and I moved from New York City to Austin because we were tired of this airplanes-flying-into-office-buildings thing? Austin has had a few incidents recently. The Governor’s Mansion was torched; no arrest was made. Someone recently fired off a gun just outside the Capitol building. A potential Walmart shooting was caught in the nick of time. The Capitol, | Read More »
Send in the Clowns Quick!…Because These People Are Idiots!
[Non-Decorum Warning] Please read this post because, after you do, you will likely agree that the people running this country are idiots. [From CNSNews.com] White House spokesman Robert Gibbs agreed that part of a civilian trial is the presumption that the accused is innocent until proven guilty, but Gibbs also said that Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, would be “convicted” and “executed | Read More »
The Fight In Iraq: Yes, It Was Worth It To Fight Terrorists
Our “illustrious” Vice President, Joe Biden (he who is afflicted with both hoof-in-mouth disease and has no functioning brain), said that America’s fight in Iraq wasn’t worth the “horrible price” while attempting to have the Obama administration take full credit for its success. I’m assuming Winston Smith, from within the Ministry of Truth, was feeding Biden these lines. There is no sense rebutting Smith Biden’s | Read More »

The Administration Still Pushing Back
First it was Attorney General Eric Holder. Now it’s White House Counterterrorism Chief and Homeland Security Adviser John Brennan on NBC’s “Meet the Press”. Brennan said he briefed four Congressional Republicans: “None of those individuals raised any concerns with me, at that point,” Brennan said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “They didn’t say, ‘Is he going into military custody? Is he going to be Mirandized?’ | Read More »
Conservative Derangement Syndrome Undermines The Rule Of Law
Matt Yglesias screeches about the conservative uproar over the Undiebomber unconstitutionally given rights by Attorney General Eric Holder, trying to say that the terrorist is the same type of criminal as any other that goes through the civilian criminal justice system. The problem is that he utterly refuses, like so many leftists, to consider that he is absolutely wrong. Yglesias falls into the pattern leftists | Read More »
Holder’s Pushback Doesn’t Pass The Smell Test
The other day, Attorney General Eric Holder put out an angry letter to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in defense of the indefensible, charging the Undiebomber as a civilian. He finally admitted that it was his decision to do so, which included Mirandizing the terrorist, allowing the Undiebomber to keep his mouth shut. Which he did until recently. After reading this letter, there are | Read More »
No Political Benefits to Gain from a Terror Attack
According to the Director of National Intelligence, Dennis Blair, the likelihood of a terrorist attack in the United States is “certain.” This stunning admission has been met with a whimper from the media, probably because an attack is expected given the government’s anemic response to the last coordinated terror attacks in this country by Islamic extremists; the Christmas Day bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and | Read More »
America and Israel: You Got A Friend in Me?
What is the meaning of friendship? What makes the bonds that we call a true friendship mean something? We have all heard of the fair-weather friend and most likely we have all had one or two of them. The fair-weather friend stays by your side as long as all the conditions of life are optimum. Unfortunately, we often need our friends most when times are | Read More »
Has the President ordered a “hit” on a U.S. Citizen?
Something doesn’t make sense. The President is giving foreign-born terrorists rights conferred to American citizens, but ordering a hit on U.S. citizenswho are terrorist? I can’t see any other way to read this: President Barack Obama approved secret joint U.S. military and intelligence operations with Yemeni troops that began six weeks ago and killed six regional al Qaeda leaders, The Washington Post reported. Obama approved a Dec. 24 strike | Read More »
The Battle of the Bulge and War on Terror
From New York Homeland Security, Michael Haltman The Greatest Generation Forward to Generations Baby Boomer and X Although a little slow on the uptake, the United States came to understand the necessity for winning World War II. There was no option for losing, as we faced an enemy led by a leader, Hitler, bent on world domination and in the creation of a world order | Read More »

Maybe Some Good Came Out Of The Undiebomber’s Interrogation
Y’all are going to have to work with me on this. I hate the law enforcement approach in battling terrorists, especially Al Qaeda terrorists. I think the idea of Mirandizing terrorists prior to a full interrogation is a huge detriment to the national security of this nation while it’s at war. The fact that some new group that is supposed to interrogate terrorists isn’t yet | Read More »
More From Holder’s (In)Justice Dept.
Following on yesterday’s post where I lay much of the blame for the Undiebomber being prosecuted in civilian court on Attorney General Eric Holder, the DoJ issued a statement justifying the action. Holder’s spokesmouth: U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s spokesman Matthew Miller said FBI agents obtained useful intelligence from Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab after he was arrested but before he was charged for allegedly trying to | Read More »
Does Anyone In The Obamaland White House Know There’s A War On?
Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair and FBI Director Robert Mueller were on Capitol Hill yesterday before the Senate Homeland Security (Blair) and Judiciary (Mueller) Committees yesterday. What they admitted was absolutely stunning. But that isn’t all. We have the Hasan report from the DoD which has been trashed by everyone who understands we’re in a war. Then, there is another related travesty from our | Read More »
Happy Anniversary, President Hope N. Change
Well, here we are at the one year anniversary of Barack Obama, “The One We were Supposed To Be Waiting For” (The One), Mr. Hope N. Change (that’s mine), being sworn in as President of the United States. He had a huge majority of his fellow Democrats in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. He had an agenda. Eventually, he got a super-majority | Read More »
The Clock Strikes 11 – Obama’s folly in emulating Europe’s failed policies
I posted a ridiculously long essay just before Christmas that tried to cover way too much ground. I was going to just leave it be, but Mark Steyn posted something over in the Corner that I thought was worth revisiting, given the Christmas Day terrorism attempt. In his post, he revists the concept of incremental surrender to Islamists: If it were just terrorists bombing buildings | Read More »
