Obama’s to “start going on some offense” with ISIS

    Obama's to "start going on some offense" with ISIS

    Wednesday Obama is supposed to address the nation on his plan for combating ISIS. The signs are not hopeful: President Barack Obama will address the country Wednesday to explain to the nation “what our game plan is going forward” in the fight against ISIS. In an interview that aired Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Obama expressed confidence that the United States, with help from | Read More »

    Dan Bongino's campaign (MD-06) ignored by the media

    I rarely write about local issues but this particular one has a resonance beyond the immediate area. By way of background, I live in Maryland’s Sixth Congressional District which is one of the few sane places in that godforsaken socialist republic. Historically, Maryland Six had been a Republican district represented since the time of Augustus Caesar by Roscoe Bartlett. After the 2010 Census, Maryland Six | Read More »

    Rotherham and the failure of multiculturalism

    Rotherham and the failure of multiculturalism

    The news from Rotherham, UK, has been chilling. Gang rape of vulnerable teens and pre-teens was endemic: No one knows the true scale of child sexual exploitation (CSE) in Rotherham over the years. Our conservative estimate is that approximately 1400 children were sexually exploited over the full Inquiry period, from 1997 to 2013. In just over a third of cases, children affected by sexual exploitation | Read More »

    Democrats: Immigration reform will kill us in the 2014 elections

    Democrats: Immigration reform will kill us in the 2014 elections

    Yesterday, Barack Obama decided that he would not undertake unilateral executive action on immigration: After saying he would overhaul the nation’s immigration system by the end of summer, President Obama has now decided to delay any action until after the November elections. The president told Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd in an interview airing Sunday that the surge of unaccompanied children at the Mexican border changed | Read More »

    Obama assembles Coalition of the Useless to fight ISIS

    Speaking at the closing of the NATO summit made another non-announcement about ISIS, the fundamentalist Islamic group rampaging through Iraq and Syria through the inaction of the Obama administration. Speaking at the closing of the Nato summit in Wales, the US president said the grouping, which also included Germany and Canada, “stood ready to confront this terrorist threat with military, intelligence, law enforcement as well as diplomatic | Read More »

    Putin takes a slap at Obama in Estonia

    Putin takes a slap at Obama in Estonia

    Yesterday, Obama gave speech in Tallinn. It was the typical Obama speech: long on treacly rhetoric and short on substantive actions. In it he specifically told Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania that NATO would stand by them under Article 5, the article covering collective self defense, of the North Atlantic Treaty. That was Wednesday. Today Vladimir Putin sent his answer. As to be expected, he wasn’t | Read More »

    Obama’s foreign policy: Don’t worry. Be happy

    Obama's foreign policy: Don't worry. Be happy

    To hear President Obama tell it, things are actually going pretty damned well; swimmingly, actually, if it weren’t for the whole social media thingy. All of that makes things pretty frightening.  And then, you turn your eyes to Europe and you see the President of Russia making a decision to look backwards instead of forward, and encroaching on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of their | Read More »

    Obama’s Talinn speech probably guarantees peace in our time

    Obama's Talinn speech probably guarantees peace in our time

    Yesterday in Talinn, Estonia gave a speech that he should have given months, if not years, ago. Addressing the people of Estonia – the NATO member most directly threatened by Russian expansionism — and, indirectly Vladimir Putin, Obama drew yet another of his infamous red lines: First, we will defend our NATO Allies, and that means every Ally.  In this Alliance, there are no old | Read More »

    Obama signals no major action against ISIS

    Obama signals no major action against ISIS

    If anyone had hopes of a comprehensive response by the Obama administration to the growing challenge presented by ISIS after Obama’s remarks in Estonia today they are indeed optimists. But what I’ve said from the start is, is that this is not going to be a one-week or one-month or six-month proposition.  Because of what’s happened in the vacuum of Syria, as well as the | Read More »

    Maryland’s thought police strike

    Maryland's thought police strike

    Stephen King should thank his lucky stars he doesn’t live in Maryland. A teacher in Cambridge, Maryland has been suspended from teaching, banned from school property, had his home searched, and been taken in for emergency medical evaluation because of a novel he wrote under a pseudonym in 2011, three years before he was hired.  A Maryland middle school teacher has been placed on administrative | Read More »

    Al Qaeda’s peace offering

    Al Qaeda's peace offering

    It was a relief when al Qaeda affiliated Syrian rebels belonging to Jabhat Al-Nusrah released American freelance writer Peter Theo Curtis. Curtis has been held captive for nearly two years. Jabhat Al-Nusrah has been designated by the US State Department as an affiliate of al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), the group founded by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The New York Times hints that Curtis may have been | Read More »

    European anti-Semitism: it is the new black

    European anti-Semitism: it is the new black

    Anti-Catholicism may be the last remaining acceptable prejudice, but in Europe anti-Semitism is making a comeback. Last week, Mark Steyn reported this nugget: A Tweet from Yasmina Haifi: ISIS heeft niets met Islam te maken …is vooropgezet plan van zionisten die bewust Islam willen zwart maken Which translated into English means roughly: ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. It’s a preconceived plan by Zionists who | Read More »

    Bashar al-Assad: Obama’s new ally

    Bashar al-Assad: Obama's new ally

    Things seem to be on the verge of coming full circle in US relations with Syria. Early in the Obama administration, the ever sagacious Secretary of State Hillary Clinton referred to Syrian President Bahar al-Assad as a “reformer” before demanding his ouster. Now it seems that Obama has made the decision that the United States must cooperate with Syria in order to suppress ISIS/ISIL. Two | Read More »

    Obama’s mess in Iraq

    Obama's mess in Iraq

    As the Obama administration flounders about in trying to come to a decision on how to deal with ISIS/ISIL, the White House’s minions have been unleashed to, you guess it, blame President Bush. The general line of attack is that had Bush not invaded Iraq, or had done so differently, then the Child Emperor, the Lightworker, would not be flopping about like a carp on | Read More »

    We have never been at war with Eastasia

    We have never been at war with Eastasia

    When Obama took a break from golfing to make a statement on the ritual slaughter of photojournalist James Foley by ISIS/ISIL he included this line: They may claim out of expediency that they are at war with the United States or the West, but the fact is they terrorize their neighbors and offer them nothing but an endless slavery to their empty vision, and the | Read More »
