Snubbing Brits an Example of Obama’s Twisted Priorities

March 8, 2009

For those of us who root for the Conservative Party when following British politics, watching Gordon Brown’s disastrous trip to the United States was a treat because it was merely the most recent episode of what has become a Labour Party trainwreck.  Although Brown’s trip was entertaining to follow from that perspective, the American in [...]

Sweden. Now There’s A Nation of Cowards

February 22, 2009

Despite what’s been flying out of Eric Holder’s mouth, the United States is not a nation of cowards.  If you want to see a nation of cowards, look no further than Sweden.  Last week, the Scandinavian Socialist Paradise decreed that their country’s upcoming Davis Cup match with Israel will have to be played in an [...]

BBC Employees Unknowingly Admit Pro-Palestinian Bias

February 21, 2009

Four hundred BBC employees have signed a petition to overturn the BBC’s recent decision not to broadcast a pro-Palestinian propaganda special “Gaza Humanitarian Aid Appeal.”  The employees argue that by not airing the special, the BBC is effectively taking sides in the conflict.  Apparently, the BBC would never dream of broadcasting one-sided coverage in the [...]

Give It Up Tzipi: Lieberman Backs Netanyahu

February 19, 2009

Benjamin Netanyahu now has the inside track to becoming Israel’s next Prime Minister. That’s because Avigor Lieberman, the leader of Israel’s third largest party, has thrown his Yisrael Beitenu’s support behind a Netanyahu-led coalition. But there’s a catch. Although he prefers Netanyahu as Prime Minister, Lieberman is insisting that Netanyahu include Tzipi Livni’s Kadima Party [...]

The new era of Capitulation and Appeasement is in full force.  The Obama administration plans to lift all sanctions against Syria as part of it’s unraveling of the War on Terror.  Syria is a state sponsor of terrorism.  They aided Al Quaida in Iraq against our armed forces, are building a nuclear reactor, and have [...]

An Iranian Threat On The Horizon

February 11, 2009

Just what we need.  With all of the current domestic trouble with the economy, the last thing that we need is a major foreign policy crisis to enter the fray.  According to the Wisconsin Project, Iran is probably now only two months away from having a nuclear weapon.  All the while, Obama wants to hold [...]

Iran Wants an Apology Too!

January 28, 2009

Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has asked for an apology from the US because of “crimes” America has committed against them.  Of course, it’s both ridiculous and completely expected.  In fact, I expect the Obama Administration to be conciliatory toward the Iranian regime which is nonetheless running a proxy-war in Gaza, Lebanon, as well as killing US troops in Iraq. All that [...]

Feeling a Lot Like 9/10 Out There

January 27, 2009

In Barry’s First Seven Days we’ve already lurched backwards, perhaps dangerously. First, we fold over the issue of Gitmo in the face of evidence regarding the fate of some of the released detainees, making appear America less safe.  Then, Barry goes over to al Arabiya TV and gives his first post-Inaugural interview with them –  not [...]

Obama Asks Hen House to Open the Doors To Foxland

January 22, 2009

President Obama has asked Israel to open its borders with Gaza, the the region from which hundreds of rockets were launched at Israeli civilians as recently as last week.  Why?  So the terrorists can get a better shot? It is highly unlikely that the Israeli government would pay much attention to this asinine request in [...]

Say Never Forever

January 19, 2009

With anti-semitism on the rise in recent years, especially in Europe, disturbing scenes like these have become increasingly common.  What’s even more troubling is that anti-semitism is socially acceptable enough in certain areas for people to shamelessly display their hatred out in the open.  Not that all anti-semites are content to confine their filth to [...]

Ground War in Gaza

January 4, 2009

Israel has moved the tanks and troops into the Gaza Strip in the latest phase of “Operation Cast Lead;”  Israel’s attempt to get Hamas to embrace a lasting ceasefire.  Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas has called Israel’s incursion “brutal aggression,” and the UN is hyperventilating over Israel’s actions of late, citing the laughable phrases “disproportionate” and [...]

Goodbye 2008!

December 31, 2008

I’m kind of glad to see this year go.  While fun was had, disappointments and external events put a particular funk on this year as I look back on it. The biggest story of the year happened on my birthday when America chose to embrace our new status as an Obama Nation.  We deserve what [...]

Renewed Violence in Gaza

December 28, 2008

“Second verse, same as the first.”  “You sound like a broken record.”  “Been there, done that.”  “Renewed violence in Gaza.” Get the picture?  Hamas decided last week that it would be prudent to end the latest ceasefire with Israel.  Then Hamas proceeded to get its butt kicked.  Now they are complaining about the very violence they restarted [...]

Israeli PM Livni Calls For An Election

October 26, 2008

Barack Obama isn’t the only politician with an unusually strong sense of entitlement.  Tzipi Livni, leader of Israel’s Kadima Party, could probably give Obama a run for his money.  After months of trying to become Israel’s Prime Minister without an election, Livni acknowledged the inevitable and called for the general election she so desperately tried [...]

Hamas, Fatah and the Elusive Mustache!

August 3, 2008

Of course, Hamas is the instigator here, shaving the mustaches of Fatah prisoners or dissodents in public in order to humiliate them.  I know the whole cultural thing about facial hair in that part of the world, but I would not be surprised if lack of a mustache could get you killed in Gaza one day.  [...]

Olmert to Resign

July 30, 2008

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said today that he is not going to run again as leader of the Kadima Party after the September 17 primary elections.  He’s leaving it for his Kadima successor to try and put together a governing coalition.  I’m not an Olmert fan — two summers ago, shelling an border fighting caused two Israelis to [...]

Israel’s Jimmy Carter Sends Wrong Message

June 29, 2008

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has once again displayed unfathomable incompetence when it comes to defending his country. Earlier today, the Prime Minister convinced his Cabinet to agree to a “prisoner exchange” in which Hezbollah will deliver the remains of two dead Israeli soldiers in exchange for the remains of ten terrorists and the release [...]
