Crisis Prone Day: Gaza Invasion, Malaysian Air Crash, Persistent Border Issues

July 17, 2014

It’s just one of those days. Israel invades Gaza.  After ten days of on-and-off ceasefires and peace talks, the Israelis decided that a blunt force trauma to the Hamas terrorist infrastructure would be the best move to secure their border.  Can’t blame Israel — they even announced days ago that they were coming in order [...]

Hagel Hearing Debacle

January 31, 2013

In the spirit of full disclosure, we here at AOR have a history of not liking Chuck Hagel.  Mike even wrote this in September 2007: As Chris Wallace once pointed out, the man’s [Hagel] worldview on national security was closer to John Kerry’s than to the mainstream of the Republican Party. That was then.  In [...]

Morsi Declares Himself More Powers

November 23, 2012

Egyptian President Mubarak Morsi has declared that all the decisions that he’s made (and will make) until a new constitution is formed are not subject to appeal from any court or anywhere else for that matter.  Morsi has his own executive authority, has a toothless parliament, and is now bullying the courts.  This situation kind [...]

On the Latest Violence Between Israel and Hamas

November 19, 2012

I only have a few things to say about what has been happening the last six days between Israel and Hamas, and none of it favors Hamas.  My whole life I’ve seen the same story play out:  Israel gets hit one time too many and decides to retaliate as suddenly the international community gets apoplectic [...]

Steven Crowder Gives Lesson on History of Israel

November 16, 2012

It can be difficult to ask people to learn the history of Arab-Israeli conflict before making comments on the situation.  With our corrupt liberal media the way it is, it’s hard enough to ask people to learn the brief history of whatever event happens to be the news of the day.  Thankfully, Steven Crowder has [...]

Romney on Foreign Policy

October 8, 2012

Giving a major foreign policy speech at the Virginia Military Institute today, Mitt Romney took it to President Obama, saying amongst other things that “Hope is not a strategy” while calling Obama out on the 9/11 Libya attack and Obama’s foreign policy drift. Predictably, the Obamabots in the MSM immediately panned it, calling it vague.  [...]

God Returns to Democrat Platform

September 5, 2012

After yesterday’s crazy exchange between Senator Dick Durbin and Fox’s Bret Baier, the Dems must have thought about the political fallout from the DNC’s exorcism of the word “God” and omitting the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital from their official platform. So, God’s been resurrected by the delegates, eliciting boos from a crowd that [...]

RNC Speeches Day 2: Rice and Ryan Rock the Hall

August 30, 2012

After many solid speeches throughout Day 1 of the convention, I was interested to see if the message would shift on Day 2.  It did.  Yesterday the was time to take it directly to Obama (finally).  The specific criticism missing from Chris Christie’s speech was on full display in prime time last night! The warm-up [...]

At the ongoing G20 Summit, French President Sarkozy and our embarrassment, President Obama, were overheard on an open-mic picking on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: With friends like these, right?  Real mature, guys!  Why is it that our leaders still don’t understand that EVERYTHING in public is recorded nowadays?  Just ask Gordon Brown how these [...]

A-Jad Provokes Walkout at UN

September 22, 2011

Finally, the good kind of unity at the United Nations!  After Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad started tearing into the “arrogant powers” of United States and the West during his UN speech, more than 30 countries got up and walked out!  Wandering between Holocaust denial, the trademark Zionist conspiracy and criticizing America’s Africa policy (of all [...]

Egyptian Protesters Attack Israeli Embassy

September 10, 2011

Seven months since the American-condoned ouster of long time Egyptian strongman Hosni Mubarak, the people are restless.  The country has no planned elections and a military junta still reigns over the Earth’s largest Arab nation.  With a sense of rising expectations, small incidents take on deeper severity. It is in this context that Egyptian protests [...]

Israeli Protesters Demand Their Goodies Too

September 4, 2011

With the United Nations on the verge of royally screwing Israel by arbitrarily declaring Palestine an independent state (by the way, who will run it, Hamas or Fatah?), the recipient middle class across Israel has been taking to the streets to demand “social justice” and economic reforms from the Netanyahu government.  The protesters want, among [...]

Taking the President to school at their Oval Office meeting today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to Obama’s selling-out of our closest Mideast ally: (the classic rebuttal ebbs at about 4:30) Notice Obama’s icy stare during the lesson — I was even waiting for Obama’s classic middle finger face scratch!  Too many cameras, I [...]

Obama Just Screwed Israel

May 19, 2011

Israel, we’ve found a new Yasser Arafat for you — Barack Hussein Obama, who just threw red meat to an “Arab Spring” crowd all primed and ready for Israeli blood. Today, President Obama endorsed a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian problem, as many have including Israel herself.  However, part of the plan is Israel accepting [...]

Egypt in Turmoil

January 27, 2011

In the wake of Tunisia’s pro-democracy “Jasmine Revolution” the Egyptian street has been emboldened to wreak havoc on the regime of dictator President  Hosni Mubarak.  Egyptians are fed up with their government’s lack of transparency and legitimacy.  Couple that with renewed religious violence against Christians and that Mubarak seems to be setting up his son [...]

Goodbye, and Good Riddance, Helen Thomas

June 7, 2010

Helen Thomas retired today, leaving behind a 50+ year career in the White House Press Corps in disgrace.  Her retirement comes after remarks made last week in which she said that the Jews should all get out of Israel and go back to Poland and Germany.  For most Conservatives, Helen’s statement last week did not [...]

Israelis Shoot Violent Protesters

June 1, 2010

How do you know that Israel probably did the right thing by firing at and killing protesters on a ship bound for Gaza?  That’s easy — the complete anti-Israeli knee-jerk reaction, with the international press practically pushing each other aside to be the first to condemn Israel!  This same “Blame Israel First” crowd was out [...]

U.N. Official: Israel in Gaza Worse than Nazi Camps

May 14, 2010

The civilized world should be grateful for the moral clarity and leadership coming out of the United Nations.  Take Ali Abdussalam Treki, President of the United Nations General Assembly, who recently claimed in an interview on Syrian television that the Israeli “siege in Gaza” was worse than the Nazi camps of the past.  Of course [...]

Americans More Classy Than Their President

April 8, 2010

Americans know how to treat an ally, and know when an ally has been wronged.  As discussed on or last edition of Axis of Right Radio, when Obama snubbed Benjamin Bibi Netanyahu at the White House last month, it was simply the latest in a long line of snubs towards our allies (as opposed to [...]

Iran: We’re Nuclear! … Almost

February 11, 2010

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s “big” proclamation which was supposed to scare the pants off the West happened to be a pretty predictable one.  Iran is now in possession of some highly-enriched uranium with the capability of enriching higher.  You need 90% enrichment for weapons, but Mahmoud admitted their capabilities range from 20-80%.  Meaning, not much has changed [...]

Something Brewing in Iran

February 1, 2010

A couple of stories that have surfaced today make me wonder if something is brewing in Iran.  First, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced yesterday that Iran would “deliver a harsh blow to the ‘global arrogance’ on this year’s anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.” The anniversary, which takes place on February 11, marks the beginning of [...]

Iran is on the verge of developing a nuclear bomb, and all we’ve been doing for the past 11 months of the Obama Administration is trying to talk without preconditions.  Well, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton now admits that talking has basically yielded jack: Now, to be fair, the Bush administration wasn’t doing much more [...]

Netanyahu Calls Out the UN

September 25, 2009

Yesterday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a speech to the United Nations stating plainly that Iran is insidiously destabilizing the region through proxy wars, openly threatening Israel while denying the Holocaust, and thumbing its nose at the IAEA (not big deal there, but an honorable mention seemed obligatory).  Hence, a stronger hand is needed by [...]

Obama Sell-Out on Missile Defense

September 17, 2009

In Obama’s short political career he’s thrown Bill Ayers, Reverend Wright, Israel, Van Jones, Grandma, etc. under the bus to advance his political agenda — it’s a bumpy ride in the Obama Nation!  Well, today he’s thrown two more entire countries under the bus: Poland and the Czech Republic!  Obama and crew have decided to end American plans [...]

Obama on Iran: Trust ‘Em, While Isolating Israel

June 2, 2009

Our Leader has spoken (fast-forward to 2:26 for this money-quote, then his naivety on display thereafter): “Iran has legitimate energy concerns, legitimate aspirations…” Has anyone informed the Beneficent One that we tried this same appeasement approach to a belligerent nation seeking nuclear “energy” in the past?  That would have been North Korea!  But at least when NK [...]

Released CIA Memo Details Interrogation Techniques

April 17, 2009

Water-boarding, bugs, leashes, loud music, diapers, sleep deprivation:  all techniques used in the interrogation of really bad people at Club Gitmo.  All of them were used with the intent not to do permanent harm, but to leave that impression with the prisoner; hence, skirting any potential claims of torture from a legal stand-point — the [...]
