At the recent G7 summit President Obama publicly snubbed the Iraqi prime minister as he leaned over to try and speak with him: The snub. And the walkaway. Not long after, the terrorist group ISIS mocked: ISIS recently took over the Iraqi town of Ramadi as the government withdrew its forces.  ISIS is not only sucking up resources, money, arms, but according the...

Seems like “movements” around the world are fueled by ignorant, silly Leftist youth.  Take the Scottish “independence” vote that was held Thursday.  Had the Scottish decided to leave the United Kingdom reality would have come crashing down on them hard with the kinds of hard facts that Leftists don’t understand such as what currency...

Imagine if, after the end of WWII, Eisenhower got elected and decided to pull the troops out of West Germany because that was Truman’s decision to keep them there.  Or out of Korea.  Ike gets on television and tells America his “hands are tied” and he doesn’t want the bad choices of past administrations to hand over his head. While it is...

Comments Off on As Predicted, Russians Cut America Off From Space Station

The only thing I hate more about being right is being right: Russia is to deny the US future use of the International Space Station beyond 2020 and will also bar its rocket engines from launching US military satellites as it hits back at American sanctions imposed over Ukraine crisis. The Space Station is manned by both American and Russian crew, but the only way...

Comments Off on Sudetenland and Crimea: How Different Are They

I am a firm believer in history repeating itself and that what we learn from history is that we don’t learn our history.  And so we find ourselves in a Sudetenland flashback regarding the “crisis” in the Crimea. Here’s a little background on the Sudetenland: The Sudetenland The borders of Germany and Austria were a bit willy-nilly in that...

Comments Off on Why the 80s Foreign Policy Never Really Left Us

During the presidential debate, President Obama famously chided Mitt Romney for having said Russia not al Qaeda was the biggest foreign policy threat facing the U.S.  Obama said: The 1980s are now calling and asking for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years. Except the 1980s never left us.  In fact, the 1950s never left...

The lastest Conservative commentary regarding the Ukraine “crisis” is that if President Obama had been tougher, Vladimir Putin wouldn’t be putting the hurt on the Ukraine.  There is some truth to that assertion.  Barack Obama has never understood why the world operates in the way it does.  This flaw is a fundamental problem American Liberals have...

Comments Off on The Left’s Reaction to the Right’s Reaction to Nelson Mandela’s Death

Former South African president Nelson Mandela died on Thursday at the age of 95.  While there is little doubt that he lived a long, interesting life and helped to shape the modern world, the fact is he never renounced the violence he instigated before he became president.  Mandela sought help from countries such a the Soviet Union, Libya, and Cuba.  He was pro=Palestinian and anti-Israel.  But, in death, Liberals sought to whitewash the man’s history. Both Martin Luther King, Jr. and Nelson Mandela were black...

Nelson Mandela was a Communist supporter, a terrorist, and a statesman. He was no Martin Luther King, that is for sure. No doubt the Left will paint any less-than-positive articles about Mandela as the product of racism though it is about ideology, not race.  Mandela accomplished much in his life… both good and bad. We shall leave it to history to be the...

Comments Off on When USA Today Says You’re a “Laughing Stock” You Know It’s Bad

Sometimes it’s best to just acknowledge when someone else has said it better than you could.  So, without further ado, here is an editorial from USA Today about the botched job Obama’s made of Syria: By Glenn Harlan Reynolds Remember that dumb cowboy George W. Bush, who alienated all our allies and dragged us into wars of choice in the Mideast? And remember...

Being president is a little different than being a community organizer or a U.S. senator.  Not only do you need to worry about your voters and Congress (not to mention the Supreme Court) but also other countries.  And some of those countries have friends who don’t like us and will try and make our leaders look like dolts at any given opportunity. And Obama...

Many are comparing the drumroll to “war” with what Americans experienced with Afghanistan and Iraq.  Pundits are calling Republicans hypocrites because they overwhelmingly supported Bush but now are turning away from Obama.  But it is perfectly consistent and logical to have supported Bush’s position on Afghanistan and Iraq while opposing Obama’s...

Syria is not Iraq and it is not Afghanistan lest some get caught up in the hysteria of comparing them to one another. Afghanistan, at the time of 9/11, was a patch of land divided between the Taliban who controlled the major areas and the Northern Alliance who were fighting a losing battle against the Sharia Law-inspired Islamists. The Taliban officially gave shelter...
