Iraq is descending into chaos as a terrorist militant group called ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria/Levant) has seized the second largest city in Iraq, Mosul, and have stampeded across Anbar province to within 50 miles of Baghdad. A number of factors are in play:  the fact that the US never renewed the SOFA [...]

Obama at Mandela’s Funeral

December 10, 2013

It was all about Obama Nelson Mandela today in Johannesburg at a funeral service which saw dozens of world leaders come to pay their respects to the former President of South Africa.  It was also a great chance for President Obama to jangle the keys to turn our attention away from Obamacare and his sinking [...]

House Speaker John Boehner had a meeting with Obama today and the usual happened — Boehner caved to Obama’s wishes, this time on the issue of military action in Syria: Later, John Kerry, Chuck Hagel, General Dempsey and others attended a picnic Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing where they tried to make the case for [...]

Syria: Sarin Gas Used, but Whose Was It?

September 2, 2013

My thoughts on Syria are pretty clear:  with no clear strategic American interest in that civil war, let Iran’s proxies in the Assad regime and the Islamist rebels keep killing each other.  The only other pressing issue is letting the use of chemical weapons go unpunished, especially after all of President Obama’s “red line” statements. [...]

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 [...]

Rand Paul’s Great Week

January 26, 2013

Rand Paul had two opportunities this week to shine and did so brilliantly.  Here was Senator Rand Paul taking it to Hillary Clinton and the administration on Benghazi: Here’s Rand Paul the next day asking John Kerry (who wants to be Secretary of State) to reconcile his support of Obama’s constitutionally suspect actions in Libya, [...]

Hillary Hopsitalized with Blood Clot

December 30, 2012

Hillary Clinton has been admitted to a hospital due to a blood clot which appeared after the concussion she sustained a few weeks back.  Jeez — some people will do anything not to testify on Benghazi — this being the third illness (flu, concussion, clot) which has delayed her from testifying! I kid.  A blood [...]

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 [...]

DNC Speakers Revealed

September 1, 2012

The DNC has released a list of speakers at their convention next week. ***If I could ask a favor of you, PLEASE paste this URL into another window before reading the subsequent “highlight” list: OK, now go: Debbie Wasserman Schultz, shrill voice of the DNC Elizabeth Warren, an Indian woman running against Scott Brown [...]

Rubio’s “Whole House” Speech

July 31, 2011

This clip definitely needs to be added to the echo chamber if you haven’t see it yet.  It’s about 15 minutes, but completely worth it especially towards the end: If you haven’t got the time to watch, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, everyone’s favorite potential GOP VP pick next year, clearly expresses reality in the face [...]

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 [...]

Lurch Gets Frustrated

October 30, 2010

John Kerry recently articulated exactly what he believes about the electorate this cycle, and it frustrates him: “It’s absurd. We’ve lost our minds. We’re in a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don’t weigh in. It’s all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics.” The biggest laugh regards Lurch’s anger [...]

Kerry: The Voters are Stupid

September 27, 2010

Looking down his ruling class nose at the woefully ignorant plebes, Massachusetts Senator John F’in Kerry uttered this gem last Friday: “We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening.” This [...]

Attaching a Price to Carbon, the Most Basic Element of Life

February 24, 2010

Cap and trade Cap-and-Tax legislation appears to be at a standstill due to a disagreement at the mechanism for setting a price for carbon.  Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Sen. Lindsay Graham (RINO-SC) are attempting to come up with the best way to determine the price for carbon. Think about that [...]

Kerry’s Revenge on Afghanistan

November 29, 2009

John “F’in” Kerry* finally gets some revenge on the Bush Administration through a new report on how we missed our chance to get Bin Laden in December 2001 in the mountains around Tora Bora.  However, on page 9 of the 49 page file (pdf file) Kerry notes that his report’s thesis relies on the same [...]

Keeping the Kennedy Klan in Power

August 21, 2009

Ted Kennedy is dying.  He couldn’t even attend his sister’s funeral last week.  He knows that he probably doesn’t have long before he cannot discharge his duties as the senior Senator from the Commonwealth (sorry, People’s State) of Massachusetts.  Back in 2004, Massacusetts’ most apt swimmer had little problem with a bill prohibiting the governor from appointing a [...]

Walter Cronkite Dies at 92

July 18, 2009

Deemed “the most trusted man in America,” CBS-TV journalist icon Walter Cronkite died yesterday at the age of 92.  His long and storied career in journalism spanned from World War II though the 1980s.  As a relatively new medium with only a few channels, Cronkite’s presence on the tube when JFK, MLK, and RFK were assassinated, after [...]

I Heart Cheney

May 22, 2009

I’ve liked Dick Cheney since the summer of 2000.  He was going to be a steady hand at Veep, had no ambition to be the top dog, so he decided to shoot from the hip and be the Administration’s authoritative voice on security issues.  He beat the heck out of Joe Lieberman in the 2000 [...]

The Potential Secretary of State Pageant

November 15, 2008

I heard some Obama Cabinet buzz at dinner last night which irked me:  She Who Must Not Be Named was apparently spoken to about taking the Secretary of State job in a new Obama Nation Administration.  Great.  So the Shrill One might be in charge of pushing Obama’s international agenda to our friends and enemies [...]

Political Expediency Over Principle

November 7, 2008

Thssace Democrats always tend to put political expediency over principle.  One of the rumors for Obama’s cabinet is the possibility of Sen. John Kerry as Secretary of State (ugh).  His leaving his Senate seat for the cabinet would cause a Senate vacancy.  Four years ago in Massachusetts, when Mitt Romney was governor and Kerry was running for [...]

In Love with Gustav

August 31, 2008

Reason #314 why I will not be voting for a Democrat any time soon:  former DNC Chairman, Don Fowler was giddy with the notion that the deadly Category 4 Hurricane Gustav (as of this writing anyway– it could go up to Cat 5 by landfall) is timed so well with the Republican National Convention that it just [...]

John Kerry… For Vice President?

August 15, 2008

The Veepstakes game is not a precise science, but some today are seriously thinking that John F’in Kerry, Lurch himself, could be on Obama’s short list for his “foreign policy credentials:”  like Kerry’s famous ”global test” debacle of 2004, or his Vietnam War service, complete with lying about our troop’s behavior to Congress once he got home?    I’m sure the Obama [...]

McCain Gaffe on Iraq? — You Decide

June 11, 2008

John “F’in” Kerry and the Obama campaign are pouncing on John McCain’s statement this morning on the Today Show, calling McCain “out of touch” and “confused” with his own stated opinions.  The above video clip shows you what McCain really said, and this link shows how the Dems reacted to it. Make up your own [...]

Is She Who Must Not Be Named Being “Dean Screamed”?

May 24, 2008

I think the MSM might try to make this RFK statement made by She Who Must Not Be Named their 2008 Election attempt at another “Dean Scream.” In defense of SWMNBN (shudder), she was just indicating that historically the primaries are still wide open in June and there is no precedent of getting out this early in tight primary races [...]

The 1960s in the 2008 Election

May 5, 2008

Some other chickens have come home to roost, so to speak.  One undercurrent about John Kerry’s run in 2004 was how sins of the past, when everybody was doing crazy things in the 1960s and 1970s, would come back to haunt some of those idiots.  The “Swift Vets and POWs For Truth” were a perfect example [...]

Global Warming’s Fried President Bush

April 16, 2008

The Global Warming alarmists have finally worn down the GOP passed the weak-kneed crowd, and into the Bush-crowd (which is increasingly looking like only Dubya himself).  Only the open-minded, conservative-wing remains as the firewall against an economic cataclysm based on ever-changing scientific data.  It goes to show how all Libs need to do is find an issue [...]

Obama Would Win Europe

March 8, 2008

…And that’s one reason why I hope he’ll lose in America! I was thumbing through my usual cites for something to post this morning when this piece posted on RCP emerged and struck a very dissonant chord with me. Guy Sorman’s “Europe Loves Obama” piece was hard to read since I wasn’t too sure if he was being tongue-in-cheek [...]
