Did Enterovirous Arrive from Central America?

November 2, 2014

That’s a question more and more parents want to know.  Evidence is mounting that the wave of enterovirus EV-D68 cases impacting students throughout the nation originated in Central America, giving fuel to the argument that Obama’s policy of sending those unaccompanied illegal minors to all 50 states may have spread this deadly virus. I’ve contended [...]

Ebola and the Enterovirus — Preventable Plagues?

October 5, 2014

Right now two plagues are a scourge across America — Ebola and the Non-Polio Enterovirus D-68.  While our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of these highly infectious and deadly diseases making their rounds around the USA, two notions popped into my mind. First, how in the hell did Ebola get in the [...]

Smoke and Fire in Benghazi

September 7, 2014

You know the old saying “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”  The September 11, 2012, attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was just such a story.  The Obama Administration’s reaction to it seemed odd (like they were hiding something), and anyone could have figured that this terrorist attack (less than two months before a [...]

Project Veritas on the Border: Do You Feel Safe?

August 11, 2014

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas just released a new video designed to emphasize the real problem with an open Southern border — we don’t really know who is coming over the border!  Here’s the latest video showing O’Keefe himself, dressed like Osama Bin Laden crossing from Mexico into the United States. The Southern border should have [...]

Back in Iraq

August 10, 2014

Iraq is a mess. Unfortunately that line could have been described Iraq at any time since 1980.  Like Tito in Yugoslavia, Saddam was able to keep all the various factions in line, usually with brute force.  Remove Saddam from the mix and without proper planning and support, a mess could ensue.  And it did. After [...]

Mike Rogers on ISIS

June 26, 2014

Michigan Congressman Mike Rogers has some insight into why ISIS and al Qaeda have had issues, and note that while the intelligence community was well aware of the growing threat from ISIS, watching them gain power and influence over the past three years, the administration largely ignored the threat.  Here’s a brief clip of Rogers [...]

Iraq Descends into Chaos

June 14, 2014

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 [...]

New Benghazi Emails Emerge

May 1, 2014

And they aren’t too pretty.  Even as officers on the ground and at headquarters knew that the September 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks were perpetrated by a coordinated terrorist effort, the Obama Administration was making up and sticking to the ridiculous story that a video made the attackers do it. Hours after the attack the spin [...]

Movie Review–Captain America: The Winter Soldier

April 6, 2014

Marvel’s latest comic book adaptation, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, hit theaters this weekend with both a fun and highly political message.  Here’s the trailer: The reviews are in and Winter Soldier is definitely worth the price of admission.  It’s even received Glenn Beck’s seal of approval (which is very hard to get for a [...]

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 [...]

Tea Party Turns Five

February 27, 2014

From September 2008 to February 2009 nearly $1.6 trillion America didn’t have had been spent by our government: TARP to bailout Wall Street ($700 billion), plus the auto bailouts ($80 billion), plus the Stimulus to bailout Democrat constituencies ($787 billion).  When would it stop?  Who would end up paying for it?  Anyone paying attention was [...]

An Obama, Not a King

January 20, 2014

Today marks America’s observance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday as a way to acknowledge and celebrate the life of the 20th Century’s most important civil rights leader.  While it may be unfair to compare today’s civil rights leaders to King and his contemporaries (given that era, his message, their tactics, etc.), a figure as [...]

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 [...]

Obama Losing Millennials

December 4, 2013

The latest Harvard youth poll showed that the most hopey-changey age demographic in America is having a change of heart.  The 18-29 year-old demographic observed in the survey showed only 41% approve of the President’s job performance at present — an 11-point drop since April. This could be important.  The President’s demonstrable actions will not [...]

Botched Nuke Deal with Iran

November 24, 2013

So the Obama Administration waited until 11pm EST on a Saturday night to announce a major breakthrough in talks with a belligerent foreign power.  Almost seems like he was trying to push the Sunday talk shows away from more bad Obamacare news, but I digress. So what’s this all about?  Iran has made a deal [...]

The Gettysburg Address 150 Years Later

November 19, 2013

On November 19, 1863, the battlefield around the apocalyptic battle of Gettysburg fought over four months earlier was finally sanitary enough to have a dedication ceremony for a soldier’s cemetery.  It took roughly three minutes for President Lincoln to give the most famous speech in all of American history: Fourscore and seven years ago our [...]

Obama Admits It’s Time for a Fix

November 14, 2013

After a month of taking hits across the political universe, President Obama finally offered a possible way to fix the immediate Obamacare disaster looming at year’s end:  insurance companies won’t be able drop people with coverage for a year.  This is to avoid the massive penalties uninsured or formerly insured people will have to endure [...]

CBS’s Random Act of Journalism on Benghazi

October 28, 2013

Benghazi?  Wasn’t that, like, some “phony scandal” from a hundred years ago? Alas, no. The first murder of a US ambassador since 1979 doesn’t just go away, despite the MSM’s attempts to have us look the other way.  Yet, first CNN and now CBS have decided to dig a little deeper into what happened that [...]

Obamacare: Screwing Up the Easy Part

October 21, 2013

Ron Fournier writing for the National Journal hits the nail on the head — Obama and crew should be “freaked out” about the unveiling of the President’s signature piece of legislation.  Granted, knowing the absolute train-wreck of a disaster Obamacare’s roll out has been, Obama did speak in the Rose Garden today to (sort of) [...]

The Government Reopens, the People Continue to Lose

October 17, 2013

After nearly 17 days, the latest government shutdown has come to an end.  The federal government has enough cash to spend our kid’s and grandkid’s money until January 15, when another apocalyptic, world-ending crisis will inevitably take place to push us to the brink — a brink which will take place on or around February [...]

Vets Move “Barrycades” to the White House

October 13, 2013

Driven by the Obama Administration’s punitive liberalism which targeted World War II veterans early in the government shutdown, the so-called “Million Vet March” earlier today saw US veterans take some of those infamous “barrycades” parked out front of certain memorials, pick them up, and literally carry some of them all the way to the White [...]

Government Shutdown Likely

September 30, 2013

With just hours to work out a deal over funding the federal government, it doesn’t look like either side will budge: the Dems believe that any shutdown will hurt Republicans, so why bother resolving anything; all while the Republicans spend their time negotiating with themselves since the Dems have no incentive to solve the problem [...]

House Votes to Defund Obamacare

September 20, 2013

So, the House bit the bullet and voted 230-189 for a continuing resolution (since those antiquated things called “budgets” are from a seemingly bygone era) to defund Obamacare while keeping the rest of the government open.  Though Dead On Arrival in the Senate, the House did the right thing by forcing another debate. Now things [...]

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 [...]

Putin Gives Obama an Out in Syria

September 9, 2013

Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed that instead of an ill-advised US strike on Assad in Syria, Assad should just give up his chemical weapons.  Obama seems to be biting, Ban Ki Moon seems ready to rally the Security Council, and John Kerry remains haughty through it all (it was Kerry’s off-handed suggestion that got this [...]

Obama: Red Line? Not My Red Line!

September 4, 2013

On August 20, 2012, President Obama first uttered his now infamous “red line” comment regarding use of chemical weapons in the Syrian Civil War: We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of [...]

Boehner on Board with Obama on Syria Means War

September 3, 2013

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 [...]
