Irony in Moving Gitmo Prisoners to Illinois

January 7, 2010

It is always fun when something ironic happens to prove how stupid liberal policies are.  Take for example the snowstorms and record cold temperatures that seem to follow the Global Warming nuts around, culminating in a freak-blizzard in Copenhagen during the world climate summit.  Well, the a similar irony (this one far more dangerous) occured [...]

Steven Crowder’s Club Gitmo Vacation

November 17, 2009

Mainstream media outlets have exorbitant budgets and entire departments dedicated to research.  Yet somehow, a young conservative comedian manages to produce a twelve minute video that provides more actual information and context on the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay than the state-run media has produced in years of “reporting” on the facility.  Thankfully, Crowder is [...]

Congress Flexes Muscles on Gitmo

October 5, 2009

A bi-partisan amendment passed in the House last week (opposed by the Democrat Party’s liberal wing) to prevent ANY federal funds to be used to close Club Gitmo at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and to prevent any federal dollars to be used to transport Gitmo prisoners to U.S. Soil.  It seems that on a bi-partisan basis, [...]

Bringing Terrorists To Our Shores

August 3, 2009

The Obama administration is floating a new trial balloon for the ultimate disposition of the detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (a.k.a. Club Gitmo) after the closing of the prison facility on January.  Apparently, the administration plans on setting up a prison/military court system complex in Kansas and Michigan, bringing the terrorist scum from Gitmo to [...]

Executive Incompetence

July 22, 2009

Besides being the head of state and responsible for driving the policy agenda of the Congress, the President’s primary responsibility is to be the chief executive of the government, essentially the Federal Government’s CEO.  Anyone who has worked in business or done any sort of management, whether it be of projects or of people, knows [...]

Congress Balks at Closing Gitmo

June 19, 2009

In passing the war supplemental to fund the ongoing U.S. presence in Afghanistan and Iraq, Congress also placed serious restrictions that will make it extremely difficult to close Guantanamo Bay.  The new supplemental does not allocate any funds to the closing of Gitmo.  In addition, the bill contains the following new laws: No Guantanamo Bay [...]

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 [...]

Gitmo Terrorists in Our Backyard

March 19, 2009

Attorney General Eric Holder has announced that some Gitmo detainees will end up being released, free as a bird, within the boarders of the United States. Two months ago, when Obama signed the executive order to close Club Gitmo, making us a nation less safe, people were concerned about former Gitmo detainees in federal prisons [...]

An Enemy Combatant by Any Other Name

March 13, 2009

President Obama is officially abandoning the use of the term “enemy combatant” to describe enemy combatants in the War on Terror.  The announcement will make liberals who read nothing but headlines ecstatic.  They view the enemy combatant designation as nothing more than President Bush’s pretext to deny foreign terrorists with whom we are at war [...]

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Wants Martyrdom

June 5, 2008

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the effectively waterboarded 9/11 mastermind sitting in a cell at Club Gitmo, wants to be “martyred.”  He said so in front of a Military Tribunal today, along with a few of his co-defendants. Our legal system will eventually sentence KSM to death – he’s admitted his part in the 9/11 attacks, is getting his day in court to [...]
