    Why would they? And just think of the irony- Obama abandoned the (NATO member) Poles and Czechs to their own fate when he withdrew W's plans for missile-defense in central/eastern Europe... ostensibly to make nice with the Kremlin.  But NATO pledges of support 'within days'  mean little when you've already been turned to ash. Then they watched in horror as Putin shredded Ukraine and put more missiles in Kaliningrad, right in Europe's face. NOW the Russians -who we supposedly sold-out NATO members to befriend- are showing the entire world what a bunch of feckless, undependable, and downright dangerous 'friends' the United States can be... as...

    Here’s what happens if astronomers make contact with a civilization on another planet.The false alarm happened in 1997. The Green Bank Radio Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia, was picking up some unusual signals—and Seth Shostak, then the head of the Center for Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Research in Mountain View, Caifornia, was convinced that they had come from intelligent life somewhere in the universe. “It looked like it might be the real deal,” Shostak recalled. Within a few hours, he had a call from The New York Times. But within a day, it became clear that the source...

    A new study reveals the disturbing facts. For Navy Secretary Ray Mabus it would appear that progressive ideology trumps inconvenient reality. In an interview with National Public Radio (NPR) Mabus criticized a nine month study revealing that women sustain injuries at a higher rate than their male counterparts and shoot with less accuracy under combat-simulated conditions. “(The study) started out with a fairly large component of the men thinking this is not a good idea and women will never be able to do this,” Mabus told NPR’s David Greene. “When you start out with that mindset you’re almost presupposing the...

    Drivers on I-94 passing by Tomah will now see a billboard that says "VA is Lying, Vets Are Dying," as part of a national campaign to bring awareness to alleged issues within the VA system. The group behind the billboards is called "VA is Lying," and multiple billboards, like the one in Tomah, have been displayed in places like Tampa and Minneapolis. Candace Baer-Delis lost her father at the Tomah VA in January and is a member of the group. Baer-Delis is from Marshfield and took part in the unveiling of the billboard on Monday.

    WWIII over CIA backed rebels? No thanks We needed a President and Secretary of State who could stymie Russia on the diplomatic front. We needed a President who was up to the task of managing the world stage. We needed a Commander in Chief who would be either feared or respected by our allies and enemies alike. We don’t have that. Instead, we’re faced with Middle Eastern chaos, a rapidly expanding global terrorist force, and a refugee crisis that is spreading to every corner of the globe. The President’s response has, so far, consisted of a feckless UN speech and...

So let’s go right to the video:(Scroll down for video) I was about to say it’s cowardice, as opposed to pure evil, that Netanyahu is staring down. But I’m not sure there’s that great a distinction to be made between the two, especially when it comes to the UN. It is supposed to be an international body that makes sure the world community is...

    The United States Army has created a new patch for soldiers who are fighting ISIS in Iraq. USA Today reports that “the Army's patch features crossed scimitars, a palm wreath and stars. The scimitars, short swords with curved blades, are meant to symbolize the twin goals of the U.S.-led coalition: to defeat the Islamic State, also referred to as ISIL, and to restore stability in the region, according to Army documents. The palm wreath is symbol of honor. While the stars and the buff-and-blue colors on the patch indicate the three-star command and the land, air and sea forces involved...

German journalist Jürgen Todenhöfer, who spent 10 anxious days living in Islamic State-held Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor in Syria with the jihadists, wants the world to know that the terrorist group is deadly serious about unleashing a “nuclear tsunami” on those who oppose its efforts to create an Islamic...

Putin took over Syria, and that’s that. Charles Krauthammer blamed it on the “utter passivity of the United States,” that has allowed ISIS to attract 7,000 new jihadis in the last few months alone.  Some of them are from the U.S., and some of them are from Russia.  While we hand-wring our way into irrelevance, Russia is determined never to let ISIS fighters back into their country.

Kerry was his usually smug, irritated self, implying that no one should press the issue publicly because some sort of greater deal was in the works to deal with the hostage issue If the deal we’re hearing about is the one he had in mind, it’s another example of Obama and Kerry either being the world’s worst negotiators, or - as the boss...

    This week the New York Times reported that “rampant sexual abuse of children has long been a problem in Afghanistan”. On post, Afghani police officers would sexually abuse boys at night under the protection of American forces. “American soldiers and Marines have been instructed not to intervene — in some cases, not even when their Afghan allies have abused boys on military bases, according to interviews and court records.” The unwritten policy for the troops is to neither report nor intervene. Deny all they want it’s there and American troops have no right to stop it. It is very likely...

One thing that should be made clear is that the current migrant issue is not one of "people seeking asylum". We're talking about millions of people. This is not a family being perecuted and wishing to be exiled, this is much larger than that. Politicians/Religious Leaders keep referring to this issue as an Immigration Issue but that is not what this is at all. Immigration is when someone applies to another country for citizenship....

The regime has issued multiple statements indicating that it has no intention of following the terms of the negotiations. In fact, they’re actually vowing to violate the accord. Now they’re upping the ante a bit, as their top military commander is voicing his pride in Iran’s support of international terrorism and promises that the rogue nation will destroy Israel.

We have seen these parties emerge throughout Europe — most right wing, some left wing, all sharing a sense of the failure of the mainstream. In general, they have not yet taken power, but they have reshaped the dynamics of European politics, as can be seen in...

For example, just 1200 Feet below Detroit there is a salt mine that can easily shelter over 5 million people. This is also the case in Houston, Cleveland and other cities. You might find it hard to believe, but Kansas City has a “nuclear shelter” which houses 10 percent of city’s commercial real estate. In Kansas City they have Subtropolis – as it is called – is an ex limestone mine with an excavated size of 140 football fields, which was...

    What a coinkydink! Just in case you were worried that, with Obama’s Iran nuclear deal in full effect, Iran would start lying (and of course we would believe them) about their nuclear capabilities: Don’t worry! That’s not the case at all. As it turns out, they were lying to our side even during the negotiations. Remember how Iran’s uranium reserves were supposed to be very low, and they would soon have to import uranium just to meet their entirely peaceful nuclear energy needs? You know, it’s the funniest thing:

  • Kerry for Nobel Peace Prize, and then President (trucated....)

    Now that Obama has lawlessly kicked the a@@ of the Repube's Par-tay---spineless toadies to the very last---he will propose someone for the Noble Peace Prize. No surprize. I have said for months it would be Jonh "Ketchup Boy" Kerry, who, incidentally, served in Viet Nam, and produced his own 8mm vignettes to aggrandize his own fat, frigging butt to prove it. And all the rest where he threw somebody else's medals over the WH wall, and all that crap. F______ him, anyway.... So...Obama will now run this moron for President, because the Moron will comply totally with his Master's wishes,...
  • To our Muslim enemies, September 11th is a day celebrating and our Senate is helping them

    On this September 11, 2015 our Senate has joined our enemies in making our enemies in Iran the most powerful terrorists on earth. Fourteen years ago, on September 11, 2001 we sustained the most devastating terrorist’s attacks in our history. We were caught completely by surprise and to the delight of our Muslim enemies, thousands of innocent American men women and children were murdered. They enjoyed every minute of it. In our national bewilderment some people thought the seventh century savages attacked us because the numeric value of September 11, is 9 -1-1 the national number to call our police....

The Donald brings new meaning to the words, “The Last Trump” (look it up if you gotta). Donald Trump is single-handedly destroying all of the above, and changing the world forever. In these insane times, where bad entertainment and the worst pornography and no-info and mad-dog social media somehow rule, where our miraculous history, language, and national story are being beheaded and burned alive while we are made to watch---Donald Trump is saying,...

    Obama's trusted partner in peace. In case you were wondering, the left already has a standard pat answer to this: He doesn’t mean it. Every time an Iranian leader vows to obliterate Israel, the left insists it’s all just bluster for internal political consumption - as if ayatollahs needed to run for re-election. They don’t, of course, and they’re not building nukes for no reason. They’re building them for this reason:
