Why Didn’t Obama Visit Paris or Send Biden or Holder?

Why Didn’t Obama Visit Paris or Send Biden or Holder?

There was a massive march in Paris this past week and million attended including more than 40 world leaders.  The Obama administration sent a campaign bundler, Jane Hartley, who is the U.S. ambassador to France.  Eric Holder was actually in Paris at the time but did not attend.  The U.S. President, Vice President, and Secretary of State […]

The Sad State of Affairs When Charlie Hebdo Represents Western “Freedoms”

The Sad State of Affairs When Charlie Hebdo Represents Western “Freedoms”

Has Western society really been reduced to publishing cartoons in the face of “terror?”  The latest Charlie Hebdo magazine is out and, rather predictably, it portrays the prophet Mohammed on its cover: Apparently Mohammed’s face and hat represent a penis and two testicles as do his eyes and nose. 17 people in all ended up […]

Islamist Attacks Jewish Market in Paris… CNN Reporter Says Not Because It Was a Jewish Market

Islamist Attacks Jewish Market in Paris… CNN Reporter Says Not Because It Was a Jewish Market

It is laughable how reporters are falling over themselves to not attempt to link religion in any way, shape, or form to the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris.  CNN – once the “most trusted name in news” – has become like an SNL skit. Witness this latest: Chris Cuomo:  The French president said this was an anti-Semitic […]

Massive Anti-Terror March in Paris Missed Point About Freedom

Massive Anti-Terror March in Paris Missed Point About Freedom

At its most basic level, the attack on French magazine Charlie Hebdo were about suppressing freedom.  The Islamic terrorists, angry at how their religion was being portrayed, decided to stop the mockery via murder. That is the most violent way to censor someone but not the only method. At least 3.7 million people “rallied” in […]

Narrative from the Left: Muslims are the Real Victims

Narrative from the Left: Muslims are the Real Victims

An excerpt from the latest Time magazine: As Parisians absorb the enormity of this week’s killings, residents in some of these banlieues say their areas need urgent changes – better education and more job opportunities – to reverse the growing drift of young Muslims like the Kouachi brothers toward radical groups bent on advancing their […]

Why Europe Is Doomed to Succumb to Islamists

Why Europe Is Doomed to Succumb to Islamists

As someone who lived in France for a few years in the 1990s I can’t say as though I was overly surprised by the murders committed by Islamists in Paris.  Not only is freedom of speech or of the press not a European value (Leftists have beaten it out of the populace) but the native […]

We Mourn Those Murdered in France

We Mourn Those Murdered in France

Once, many moons ago, I lived in Paris, France.  It is sad what has become of that nation.  Liberalism has weakened it and Islam is slicing it open like a can. Capitol Commentary is not gone from this Earth… just a pause in life.

Mary Landrieu Ousted from Louisiana as Republicans Take Another Senate Seat

Mary Landrieu Ousted from Louisiana as Republicans Take Another Senate Seat

The GOP will not control 54 Senate seats next year when its newly elected members are sworn into office. Exit polls were saying that Landrieu had lost 57% to 43%. Hillary Clinton had campaigned for Landrieu but it did no good as she went down in flames twice… once during the general election last month […]

Blacks Have Hurt Their Cause Due to Rioting in Ferguson

Blacks Have Hurt Their Cause Due to Rioting in Ferguson

There is one thing the “activists” of Ferguson have accomplished and that’s to make non-blacks even more apathetic towards their “cause.”  Images of looting, cars set on fire and businesses destroyed will be what stays in the minds of Americans, not Michael Brown being shot by a police officer. Most people are simply going to […]

Michael Brown/Ferguson Riots Proof of the Failure of Identity Politics, Liberalism

Michael Brown/Ferguson Riots Proof of the Failure of Identity Politics, Liberalism

The “no indictment” finding of the grand jury in the Michael Brown case has, predictably, ignited a firestorm among the black community.  Officer Darren Wilson (white) shot Michael Brown (black) in August.  Now there are riots in Ferguson, Missouri despite the fact that 93% of blacks were murdered by other blacks. There are no “riots” over the […]

Republicans Should Be Careful Responding to Obama’s Executive Action Amnesty Push

Republicans Should Be Careful Responding to Obama’s Executive Action Amnesty Push

It is common knowledge that President Obama is going to issue an Executive Order regarding immigration and make a move to allow millions of illegal aliens to stay in the country and, possibly, to obtain amnesty.  The Republican party needs to tread carefully as a wounded animal is still dangerous. President Obama still has power… negative […]
