We Interrupt This World War For a Democratic Fundraiser

Russian troops or Russian proxies murdered 293 people, today, including 23 Americans by many reports. Israel was forced to invade Gaza to destroy tunnels Hamas uses to invade Israel and murder children. The world teeters on the brink of all-out war. But the President refused to cancel partisan fundraising efforts tonight. Via The Blaze: At…

Why I’m Changing My Mind About Impeaching Obama

A lot of good people I know grumble that the House Republicans don’t try to impeach Obama. I usually don’t say much in response. After the disaster of the ill-conceived Clinton impeachment fiasco, impeachment seems like a superstition. Like a unicorn. I think impeachment is a dangerous tool and should never be used for political…

Russia's Ukraine Adventure

Maybe I’m All Wrong About Putin and Poland

When you’ve stated your opinion or belief about something important, do you defend your belief to the hilt? Or do you immediately begin questioning your own conclusions? Most of my life, I would defend my opinion to the point of losing friends. Even if I was wrong. Even I knew I was wrong. I’m a coward,…

King Abdullah Kicks Obama Out of Saudia Arabia ? **Video Added**

You’d think American foreign policy couldn’t sink any lower than standing by while Vladimir Putin re-conquers the Warsaw Pact nations. Then you’ve underestimated Barack Obama’s incompetence. Apparently, Obama didn’t bow low enough to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. Whatever happened, an “intimate” evening planned for Obama and Abdullah was abruptly cancelled after a two-hour meeting…

Now, the White House Says Russia Preparing to Invade Ukraine

This morning, a White House aide told reporters that Obama’s sanctions are visibly “weakening” Putin and Russia. Hours later, the White House recognizes that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine could come any moment. Speaking from the Georgian capital, Tbilisi, Mike Rogers, the chair of the House of Representatives intelligence committee, said US intelligence officials were convinced…

What Would You Do If You Were Putin?

You saw Obama stand by as you threatened Georgia in 2009. You heard Obama whisper to Medvedev that he’ll be willing to defy Congress to capitulate to you after Obama’s re-election. You watched Obama and his bumbling Secretary of State mangle its its own strategy in Syria—if the US ever had a Syrian strategy at…

What Will Putin Do?

Ask yourself this: why did the stock markets rally today after Obama announced sanctions against Russians? I’ll get back to that, but first some background. I’ve often said that Putin plays chess while Obama fumbles with checkers. I picture our president, chin resting on fist, brows squeezed in childlike concentration, as he carefully chooses between jumping Putin’s…

Little Wars Waste Lives. Go Big Or Stay Home

War is too damn serious to fight in half-measures or for a president’s pride. And I am sick of American troops leaving our shores filled with vigor and ambition and hope only to return disillusioned, scarred, maimed, or dead. On this, left and right are beginning to agree. Here are just some of the wars we…

Am I Crazy If I Don’t Believe the President?

John McCain and John Boehner believe him. John Kerry believes him. Nancy Pelosi, too. But I don’t. I don’t believe the US has irrefutable, indisputable proof that the Syrian government intentionally killed 1,500 people with sarin gas. I don’t believe it. Not yet. And neither does Yossef Bodansky. You’re probably thinking “this Bodansky guy’s some…

Is Petraeus Taking Obama With Him?

Note:  This is a flight of fantasy. If anything in this post is later shown to conform reality, it’s pure coincidence.  Nor am I accusing Gen. Petraeus of any crime or of compromising of national security secrets. (Just enjoy it, will ya?) A sex scandal rocks the king of spies. An email chain unravels the…

American Idiots

Those who blindly cheer for the fall of Mubarak and the rise of anything else in Egypt are the same as those who cheered the fall of the Shah in Iran.  Question their motives. The Great One, Mark Levin, tweeted attention to this post about an email from Salim Mansur to Claire Berlinski. The email’s…
