  • They Never Eat Their Words

    Charting Course ^ | 3/27/15 | Steve Berman
    It’s not even remotely satisfying to witness the Obama administration and its media minions repeatedly spew maniacal, spittle-flecked pablum only to have those words served up cold and congealed for them to consume.  Because the Left never eats its words. On June 6, 2014, Susan Rice—head cheerleader for the “I’ll read any talking point” squad—told CNN, "I realize there has been lots of discussion and controversy around this," Rice said. "But what I was referring to was the fact that this was a young man who volunteered to serve his country in uniform at a time of war. That, in...
  • Is Russia Arming Argentina to Enable a Grab of Falkland Islands?

    Russia is preparing to lease 12 long-range, supersonic bomber jets to Argentina, a move that some in Britain fear is designed to ready Argentina to take the Falkland Islands. Argentina has long argued that the Falklands—which it calls the Malvinas—are Argentine territory and should be controlled by Buenos Aires instead of London. The dispute escalated into war in 1982 when Argentina invaded the islands, attempting to establish sovereignty over them. The bloody 74-day conflict ended with British forces overwhelming the Argentinians and reestablishing British control of the islands. But British defense cuts in recent years leave the Falklands more vulnerable...

    To the editor: To use language similar to a reader opposed to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) ("Ted Cruz's dream, America's nightmare," Readers React, March 24): Imagine a president eager to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power and what that means for the free world. Imagine a president who will get rid of the IRS and implement a tax code that will require everyone to pay a fair percentage tax rate above an established minimum income level. Imagine a president who will re-empower health insurance companies to implement sound insurance principles as opposed to allowing people who wait until they...

    On Feb. 20, Kamal Abbas, Egyptian union leader and prominent figure in the Jan. 25 movement, sent a message to the “workers of Wisconsin”: “We stand with you as you stood with us.” Egyptian workers have long fought for fundamental rights denied by the U.S.-backed Hosni Mubarak regime. Kamal is right to invoke the solidarity that has long been the driving force of the labor movement worldwide, and to compare their struggles for labor rights and democracy. The two are closely intertwined. Labor movements have been in the forefront of protecting democracy and human rights and expanding their domains, a...

    ....A month or so ago,there were legitimate questions as to whether Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was up to speed on foreign policy and could project the gravitas we expect of presidential nominees. In an interview with Hugh Hewitt, he seemed a far cry from the candidate at CPAC. His answer on the Taliban trade and news of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion charge was solid...... Likewise,he explained why he prefers the term “safety” and gave an apt overview of what is happening in the Middle East:Safety is something you feel inside your chest, you feel in your heart.

    The news brings us a daily reminder of why the Obama administration is inept and lacking in basic common sense when it comes to its most important tasks: defeating the Islamic State and keeping Iran from getting nuclear weapons and dominating the region. The last, I think it is clear, is not even a problem to be addressed. The administration appears content to work in tandem with Iran in Iraq, let the Houthis depose the elected government in Yemen (where they have, according to news reports, looted intelligence files “exposing names of informants and plans for U.S.-backed counter-terrorism operations”), leave...

    Within moments after the US Army announced that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl would be charged for desertion and misbehaving with the enemy, his legion of far-left fans and fellow traitors took to Twitter Wednesday, starting the #BergdahlPardon topic to express their sympathy and support. The social media thread was apparently started by former Bazos County (Tx) Arts Council Director David Romei, a shady character who is no stranger to controversy himself, having been convicted of property theft for which he was jailed and ordered to pay back $268,000 in restitution. Although #BergdahlPardon is calling for the pardon of Bergdahl, who allegedly deserted his unit...

    KFOX-TV / The Associated Press ^ | March 25, 2015 | Lolita C. Baldor and Allen G. Breed, AP
    Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who abandoned his post in Afghanistan and was held captive for five years by the Taliban, was charged Wednesday by the U.S. military with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy and could get life in prison if convicted. The misbehavior charge could land Bergdahl in prison for life, though some legal experts said a lengthy sentence was unlikely. He also could be dishonorably discharged and forfeit all his pay if convicted on either charge. Next, an Article 32 hearing — similar to a civilian grand jury proceeding — will be held at Fort Sam Houston in...

    Obama, like a desperate gambler, has placed all his bets on a nuclear deal with Iran promising “peace in our times.” Albert Einstein, genius, brilliant mathematician, and scientist, wrote “God doesn’t play dice with the universe.” Glimpsing at the intricate layers of mathematical and scientific complexities underlying the composition of our material world and of the Universe, Einstein appreciated the amazing rational, logical Mind behind it; the known and unknown laws that govern this Universe, acknowledging a moral Hand inherent in its framing. But then Einstein wasn’t a politician, nor was he immortal; unlike Barack Obama who is, a politician...

They even use the Appalachian Trail. But until this year, to my knowledge, they have never operated as far away from the camp as Cooper Creek. Back in June, Georgia ForestWatch District Leader David Govus came across two soldiers on foot and...

    The GOP and Karl Rove may find it advantageous to label Republican defectors as Tea Party extremists, i.e., Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh, but they cannot escape the fact they have systematically abandoned the ideals that defined conservatism since America’s inception: liberty, faith, low taxes, private enterprise, fiscal responsibility, government transparency, separation of powers, national security, and duty. If the GOP establishment wants to wage war on anyone they should begin by indicting themselves for treason and dereliction of duty. Time and again the once proud party of Ronald Reagan has capitulated on the deficit, entitlement reform, immigration,...

    Texas Senator Ted Cruz, one of three Cuban-Americans in the Senate, is throwing his hat into the ring for the 2016 presidential race today. Cruz has made a career out of slamming President Obama for being weak and presiding over the collapse of countries like Yemen (as though Cruz could have done anything about that if he had been president). I figure if you total them all up, Cruz has called for six or seven strong US interventions abroad, whether in the form of invasions, air strikes, or covert coups d’etat. It is hard to tell exactly, since he doesn’t...

That, of course, was another epic US intervention success story. Anyway, thanks to WaPo we have an answer: according to Jeff Bezos' recent media acquisition, "the Pentagon is unable to account for more than $500 million in U.S. military aid given to Yemen."

The judge gave the Radiches the option to continue their suit by filing an amended complaint that includes the import ban and names the Customs Service as a defendant. The amended complaint is expected to be filed...

Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced he will go to Parliament this to request an extension of the mission to battle ISIS for a further year. The current engagement, limited to Iraq, may be broadened to include Syria. Canada’s role under the current mission has been to conduct air strikes, as well as flying surveillance and reconnaissance missions and training Iraqi and Kurdish fighters. One Canadian...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. -- At the start of Scott Walker's quest to be president, foreign policy has been a source of trouble. The Wisconsin governor has appeared shaky talking about world events and had to explain some perceived blunders. But as Walker opened his first campaign swing across South Carolina here in Columbia on Thursday, foreign policy emerged as the highlight of his stump speech. Walker's sharp, rat-a-tat critique of President Obama's foreign policy record drew a sustained and boisterous standing ovation from the crowd of 150 Republican activists at a party luncheon.

    The Islamic War, Martin Archer, 2014The novel begins with a terror attack on a residential area in Israel, resulting in multiple causalities. It may, or may not, have involved members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. Menachem Begin is the Israeli Prime Minister and Ariel Sharon is the Defense Minister. The story begins immediately after the (postponed?) end of the Iran - Iraq war in 1988. A massive armor, infantry, artillery and air attack on Israeli positions in the Golan follows the terrorist attack. The Israelis are outnumbered and suffer many thousands of casualties. Israel had anticipated a simultaneous attack via Jordan, so most Israeli tank, infantry and air resources are deployed there, rather than in...

    I side with the people who think that Tom Cotton and the 46 senators who joined with him in an open letter to apprise the Iranians about the way our Constitutional system works did the world a great service. As I’ll discuss at greater length below, the letter is a simple, beautifully written exposition about the American Constitution and its effects. In addition, it’s a wonderful honey pot for calling stupid Progressives out of their dark caves and exposing their ignorance to bright sunlight.The Cotton letter is really nothing more than an elegant primer about the balance of powers and...

    BOMBSHELL: Muslim Brotherhood Operative Used Hillary’s Email Server Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is burning out of control like an unchecked forest fire and it doesn’t appear that relief is on the way anytime soon. According to Stephen Hayes, a senior writer at the Weekly Standard, two of Clinton’s top aides had access to and used her personal email account while they were all employed at the State Department. He specifically mentioned Clinton’s trusted aide for twenty years, Huma Abedin, a woman with known ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. As most of our readers know, one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s core...

    This week the Obama Administration has indicated it may bypass Congress and go directly to the United Nations to obtain international approval of its pending agreement with Iran. US UN Ambassador Samantha Power cited "the traitorous actions of the 47 United States Senators' who attempted to limit the President's authority with that open letter they signed. They made it clear that their loyalty to the President is in question. Their insistence on using the Constitution as a cloak for Congressional interference has forced the Administration to seek an alternate path toward solidifying the agreement." The "alternate path" would be to...

    In hiding behind the UN, Obama and Kerry will freeze Congress out of the process and jeopardize the security of United States and its allies Secretary of State John Kerry disgraced his office yet again during his appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on March 11th. He sharply criticized an open letter to Iran’s leadership drafted by Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton and signed by 47 Republicans, which simply made the point that in our democratic republic the president does not get to bind our country irreversibly to an executive agreement he signs unilaterally with another country. “My reaction to...

    GWRAPS was coined by Sgt. Don Gulla of King Co. Deputy Sheriffs Dept of WA as Gulla Weapon Retention and Positional Shooting. This method is also called “brace contact” in certain tactical groups. The original concept is still hazy but was originally dubbed by the British SAS. The point of this technique was that it was a last desperate technique when someone else has a hand on your pistol. Using this method gives you more leverage to regain the weapon possession by fighting or shooting. See the rest of this GWRAPS story here.

    Stop the inhumane treatment of disabled homeless Veterans in Los Angeles LOS ANGELES - America’s capital for homeless Veterans is not only in a state-of-emergency to house and care for thousands upon thousands of war-injured and impoverished Veterans, but it’s also in a state-of-emergency for trusting and caring VA leadership to end this crisis—NOW—not months and months, or quite possibly, years from now. A small child could tell you that the homeless Veteran problem in Los Angeles is beyond “state of emergency” status. In comparison, downtown Skid Row makes the most poverty-ravaged communities of Third World countries seem safe and...

    White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Wednesday would not comment on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's decision to delete tens of thousands of emails she deemed personal. Clinton's actions are "not something I'm going to comment on and not something I'm particularly interested in,” Earnest said. He said he is "not aware" of any conversations between President Obama and Clinton in the last few weeks. Earnest also would not comment on the president's email address, citing security concerns. All of Obama’s emails are handled in compliance with the presidential records act, he added. Clinton revealed in a news...

    Just when you thought the Mullah-butt-licking Obama regime couldn't be any more deeply infiltrated. Somehow the newspapers never had much to say about this, and when forced to -i.e. wedding announcements- the Iranian ancestry and birthplace of Vanessa Kerry's husband are -untypically- omitted. So as Obama and John Kerry set-out to strike a grand bargain with the Mullahs (and flush Israel down the drain), you would think this to be a pertinent fact, one that really ought to be public- or at least it would have been back before this country began to forget anything that ever mattered (and how the world works).  With deep Muslim infiltration of our...
