    NYT: Iraqi WMD existed and the CIA bought them

    NYT: Iraqi WMD existed and the CIA bought them

    One of the more enduring mysteries of the Iraq War is the decision by the Bush Administration to go into a fetal position rather than fight back. No aspect of this is more painful and has proven more dangerous to the Republic than the issue of WMD. One of the stated reasons for us going to war was Saddam Hussein’s possession of chemical weapons (as | Read More »

    State Department’s @marieharf: we can’t beat ISIS with bombs, let’s send money

    State Department's @marieharf: we can't beat ISIS with bombs, let's send money

    This is stunning. Deputy State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf was Hardball with Chris Matthews last night and gave a performance that indicates she is not  only dumber than her boss, Jen Psaki, but let us know that Obama has no intention of trying to stem the spread of ISIS. Via Powerline: MATTHEWS: How do we stop this? I don’t see it. I see the Shia | Read More »

    Understanding ISIS; understanding Islam

    Understanding ISIS; understanding Islam

    There is an indispensable piece in The Atlantic titled What ISIS Really Wants. Barack Obama would do well to have read it before he starts playing Islamic Pope on the internet and holding forth on what is and what is not actually Islam. It starts with a question that apparently no one in our National Security apparatus has bothered to ask: What is the Islamic | Read More »

    Iran punks Barack Obama

    Iran punks Barack Obama

    While Washington if focused on the dishonest and sophomoric attempt by Barack Obama to evade any responsibility for, or take any action to remediate the dog’s breakfast he’s created in the Middle East, it is becoming obvious that Obama is leaving his successor a time bomb. A time bomb that will result in a major war in the Middle East. At the center of this | Read More »

    Did .@EricBoehlert go to college?

    Did .@EricBoehlert go to college?

    Eric Boehlert is a partisan hack at the shamelessly partisan but amazingly tax-exempt Media Matters for America. Boehlert is basically the butt-remora with a room temperature IQ that you find on the leftward fringe of Democrat politics. Back in 2008, he (I am not making this up) predicted the demise of FoxNews and ” watching CNN capture the campaign ratings crown.” He called US Navy SEALs | Read More »

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 »

    OMG! That Pope guy is secretly a Catholic

    OMG! That Pope guy is secretly a Catholic

    Last month I noted the surprise that rumbled through MSNBC when Pope Francis, in an homily in the Philippines, declared that homosexual marriage was a danger to the institution of marriage and to families: At a rally for families in the country’s capital of Manila, the popular pontiff spoke of an “ideological colonization that we have to be careful about that is trying to destroy | Read More »

    ISIS spreads to Afghanistan, Egypt, and Libya

    More peachy-keen news in the feckless Obama administrations feckless war on ISIS: U.S. officials are acknowledging that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has spread into Afghanistan, where President Obama is on track to draw down all but 1,000 U.S. troops by the end of the year. “The expansion of ISIL into the region is of great concern,” said Pentagon spokesman Marine Corps | Read More »

    Illegal aliens to receive retroactive EITC refunds

    This is wonderful. Via The Washington Times.The shot: IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress on Wednesday that even illegal immigrants who didn’t pay taxes will be able to claim back-refunds once they get Social Security numbers under President Obama’s temporary deportation amnesty. The revelation — which contradicts what he told Congress last week — comes as lawmakers also raised concerns Mr. Obama’s amnesty could open | Read More »

    US Marines disarmed by Yemeni militia

    Remember back when our operations in Yemen were the model for how Barack Obama was going to wage bloody war on ISIS: This counterterrorism campaign will be waged through a steady, relentless effort to take out [the Islamic State] wherever they exist, using our air power and our support for partner forces on the ground. This strategy of taking out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting | Read More »

    Obama’s AUMF should be DOA

    The abject failure of leadership by Barack Obama continues apace. The draft AUMF submitted to Congress is just another example of an administration that is so pathological that it feels like it must lie to stay in practice. For instance, Obama’s own letter to Congress simply lies about the nature of the operation. His letter says: My Administration’s draft AUMF would not authorize long‑term, large-scale | Read More »

    Atheism and support for homosexual marriage: proven indicators of a violent nature

    Somebody has to ask the question. Should atheists and supporters of homosexual marriage be allowed to own a firearm? Does adhering to either of these beliefs indicate a mental deficiency, disorder, or infirmity that rises to the level that in the interest of public safety we should insist that they be disarmed? In light of today’s horrible shootings is Chapel Hill, North Carolina, we need | Read More »

    Feminist aborts baby boy because patriarchy

    So what does a young feminist do when she mysteriously finds herself knocked up and she hates all men, even those she chooses to rut with? And, horror, the baby is a boy.
