    Administration ignored warnings about ISIS

    We have repeatedly chronicled how the policies of the the Obama administration are directly responsible for the rise of ISIS and because of that bears partial responsibility for the slaughter that has raged in Syria and Iraq over the past two years. In short, the misbegotten embrace of “Arab Spring” destabilized Syria while creating an al Qaeda safe haven in the power vacuum we created | Read More »

    The missing Cuban dissidents– or Barack Obama drives one hard bargain

    Color me agnostic on the Cuba embargo. I think we could have driven Clan Castro from power years ago if we had subsidized cheap airfares and flooded Havana with hipsters and libertarians.

    Army disciplines chaplain for mentioning God

    I served quite a while in the Army as an infantry officer. Generally I look back on my career with deep feelings of affection for the institution that rescued me from life chopping tobacco or working in a furniture mill, but I will concede that the Army is prone to institutional stupidity.

This is one of those occasions. Up until recent years, after progressives gained control of academia, most Americans knew that the Japanese bombed the US military complex at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941, and | Read More »
