The 1980s Called. They Want their Video Games Back.

September 8, 2014

I know I haven’t posted in a while and that my last post said something about avoiding silly season, but after I saw today’s news about Russian planes practicing cruise missile attacks on the United States, I remembered Obama’s ignorant and arrogant taunt about the 80s wanting their foreign policy back.  Rather than wondering about [...]

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 [...]

Crimea Secedes, Russia Succeeds, Ukraine Pleads, America Won’t Lead

March 18, 2014

The last week or so has seen an acceleration of events between Russia, Crimea, and Ukraine which seemingly could spiral anywhere. Russian-occupied Crimea voted the other day to secede — I’m not sure how “legal” the vote was until one thinks, of course, that there is no such thing as international law, just international norms [...]

Russia to Invade Ukraine

March 1, 2014

Events are moving fast in Ukraine:  violent protests, parliament removing their leader, an interim government trying to catch its breath, etc.  Complicating the situation is the ethnic makeup of Ukraine — 17.3% are Russian, most of whom live in the eastern part of the country. After making plenty of noise about possibly sending troops, the [...]

Putin’s Victory Lap Goes Through Iran

September 15, 2013

The ever-funny poignantly honest Mark Steyn wrote a piece for NRO that says everything about the state of American “ineffectualism” which has led us to a point where: A month ago, Assad was a reviled war criminal and Putin his arms dealer. Now, Putin is the honest broker and Obama’s partner for peace, and the [...]

Putin Echoes Obama on American Exceptionalism

September 12, 2013

The United States of America.  Simply, there has been no nation or people in the history of mankind that has done more for the expansion of human freedom and dignity than the United States.  With an economy which has grown an average of just over 1% for over 200 years, the modern world owes its [...]

February 15, 2013

I thought that today’s celestial action was going to take place 17,500 miles from Earth, not right smack into Russia! In what scientists are calling a “cosmic coincidence,” a totally random meteor (not related to the asteroid flying by Earth from the south) struck Russia with enough power to produce a sonic boom which has [...]

Russia Wants John Kerry in the U.S. State Department

November 8, 2012

Two days ago, we all hoped to be speculating who President-Elect Romney would select for his cabinet.  There would have been articles on blog posts discussing whether Rudy Guiliani would replace Eric Holder as Attorney General and how it would be nice if Steve Forbes would run Treasury instead of Tim Geithner.  There even would [...]

Bad Week for the Obama Nation

April 1, 2012

I figured that on April Fools Day I’d post on the terrible few days our very foolish fine President has had to endure.  The Washington Times really hit the nail on the head that over the last 10 days: Obama waded into the Trayvon Martin issue, race-pandering (skip to 1:34) and aggravating an already tense [...]

The Smurfs — Three (Very Red) Apples High

July 29, 2011

The latest attempt to get the ’80s nostalgia crowd to take their kids to the movies, The Smurfs, is being released today.  Apparently, it’s as bad as you think it is.  However, since I used to watch “The Smurfs” back in the day I took a particular interest in what has been suggested since then, [...]

Trouble In Post-Communist Paradise?

May 2, 2011

It looks like we’re about to witness a power struggle at the highest level of Russian politics.  According the UK’s Guardian, President Dmitry Medvedev is maneuvering to run for a second term in 2012  despite an agreement that he would step aside so Putin could reclaim his old job. Medvedev is only President because Putin [...]

Obama Evokes Reagan on Nuke Treaty

November 20, 2010

The prospective treaty with Russia regarding nuclear inspections hit a hurdle when Arizona Senator Jon Kyl called for more time to look through the details, prompting President Obama to say: “Those who would block this treaty are breaking President Reagan’s rule — they want to trust, but not verify.” Here’s our post-partisan president going into [...]

Fed Pumping Scorned by China, Russia

November 8, 2010

Remember last week when the Federal Reserve agreed to pump $600-900 billion in another “quantitative easing” (QE2) strategy to stimulate the economy?  Well, China and Russia are not happy about it, and Obama doesn’t seem to care!  Obama might look good with a lyre.  Yes/no? Why is this important?  Russia and China are two nations [...]

The Great Ukrainian Egg Toss of 2010

April 27, 2010

Liberals often complain about the tone of political discourse here in America whenever the people turn against them, but if liberals want to see some ugly discourse, they should take a look at the Ukraine.  During a recent meeting of Ukrainian Parliament, opposition politicians disrupted a debate by throwing eggs and smoke bombs at government [...]

A Tale of Two Headlines

April 9, 2010

Finding, consuming, and critically reading news has become far more of a challenge over the past few years.  Take the news of Obama’s Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty Treaty of Surrender to the Russians, and how it will fare in the Senate.  According to the Constitution, all treaties need to be ratified by 2/3 of the [...]

Commemorating a Historic Day, and Obama’s Lack of Respect For It

November 10, 2009

When President Reagan issued the challenge “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” on June 10, 1987, no one thought the Berlin Wall would fall anytime in the near future.  Yet just a day short of two years and five months later, the wall was torn down.  Yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of the fall of [...]

Putin: No Quid Pro Quo on Sanctions

October 14, 2009

President Obama’s latest version of “peace in our time” (taking back our promised anti-ballistic missile shield in Eastern Europe) really hasn’t yielded much from the Soviets Russians, who we had tried to please by the move especially regarding the biggest looming international security threat of our age — Iran.  Wasn’t such a gesture in Eastern Europe [...]

To Obama: Is this 2009 or 1985?

July 7, 2009

A missile reduction treaty with the Soviet Union Russia?  With Iran on the verge of getting nukes, Eastern Europe fearing a return of Russian Imperialism and looking to America for support, with North Korea ready to ignite the planet, with heightened violence in Afghanistan, we’re reducing missiles with the Russians?  Huh?  Did I just step out of [...]

Obama Czechs His Instinct on Missile Shield in Eastern Europe, at Least for Now

April 5, 2009

President Obama has announced that the United States will push forward with the planned missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic.  However, Obama also reserved the right to change his mind in the event Iran no longer posed a threat. On the surface, Obama’s decision resembles a welcome departure from the mixed signals [...]

Russian Agression Poses Threat

March 14, 2009

In what appears to be a move to ignite Cold War II, the Russians are threatening to station Russian military bombers in both Cuba and Venezuela.  This is a blatant attempt to provoke the United States, or at the very least test the mettle of The One.  What frightens me is that Obama does not [...]

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 [...]

Obama’s Impending International Crisis

Boy, that didn’t take long.  Obama gets elected President, and we are already seeing Vice-President Elect Joe Biden’s prediction of a pending international crisis coming true.  Russian President President Dmitry Medvedev announced today that Russia would be deploying missiles along the Polish boarder in response to our deployment of missile defense in Poland.  At the same [...]

Nabbing al Qaeda in Syria

October 27, 2008

In cross-border raids yesterday from Iraq into a border-town in Syria, word has it that Abu Ghadiyain, a significant al Qaeda planner of operations in Iraq, was nabbed by US forces.  Iran and Russia condemned the attack, but the Iraqis were not apologetic — they knew where the bad guys were.  I think the US decided that [...]

Krauthammer Casts His Early Ballot

October 24, 2008

In his latest column, the syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer endorses John McCain for President.  I love his column partially because he picks on the lily-livered, weak-kneed RINOs who are prematurely giving up or even jumping ship.  Then he makes a few simple points:  the economy will return to normal like it always eventually does, Obama was dead wrong on the Surge [...]

Dominoes Are So Last Century

August 14, 2008

There were discussions.  There were negotiations.  They lasted years.  For some reason, today is the day Donald Tusk agreed to allow American-made missile interceptors on Polish soil.  In exchange, the United States will provide assistance to Poland so that they can strengthen their military. The timing of today’s agreement is obviously anything but a coincidence. [...]

He Can See Clearly Now: Bush Takes A Second Look at Putin

August 13, 2008

Most criticism of George W. Bush is off base and will look downright silly in a few years; however, one criticism of Bush is completely warranted. When Bush looked into Vladimir Putin’s eyes and saw a man he could trust, he should have done a double take. Today was the double take. When the Soviet [...]
