Open Thread – Iraq on the verge of collapse

If you’ve been following the news coming out of Iraq during the past two days, then you already know how dire the situation is. To recap –  a band of radical Islamofacist militants calling itself ISIS (Islamic State if Iraq and Syria) has begun a coordinated series of attacks in the northern portion of Iraq. […]


Obama Fails: Al Qaeda Controls More Territory Than Ever

Despite his oft times indiscriminate death from-the-skies drone program, Obama seems to have failed to put a stop to our worst enemy, al Qaeda. It seems that the infamous terror group now controls more territory than ever. Obama has pretended that his occasional drone strike and the fact that he was in the White House […]


Obama’s (proposed) War of Convenience

Is American intervention likely to actually improve the situation?


How’s that “Arab Spring” workin’ out for ya?

Well, actually, it’s working out pretty much like the last five “recovery summer’s” have worked out for the US economy. In other words, not so much. Let’s rewind a bit, to 2009, shortly after the Pretender President took office. Since any semblance of reliable reporting about this administration by US sources is pretty much out […]


Slate: Claims of Benghazi Cover Up is ‘Pure Fiction’

As the Benghazi hearings begin anew on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, it is worth remembering that Dave Weigel of Slate.com, the former Journolist member who delights in attempting to debunk conservative narratives, declared in December that Republican suspicions of a Benghazi cover-up by the Obama administration were “pure fiction.” Weigel cited the report on the […]


Traitors: American Journalists Attack Koch Brothers, Support Al Jazeera

There is a confluence of events over the last few weeks that perfectly proves the essential anti-Americanism of the Old Media establishment in this country today. It is evinced in two separate stories, one wheret the left is excoriating the Koch brothers for wanting to buy the L.A. Times and a contrasting story where journalists […]


Israel Goes There

President Peace Prize On “Noise” and “Bumps In The Road” (Videos)

Obama went on 60 Minutes … wow. Just WOW. First, Israel and it’s concerns about nukes are “noise” he can block out: Noise? Well, President Peace Prize… here’s some NOISE for you to block out: Obama: Israel’s concerns on Iran “noise” I’m going to block out « Hot Air Obama considers pressure from Netanyahu on […]


Ho ho, this is a dilly of a pickle.

Funny how one week can change the dynamics of an election.  A mere seven days ago at the DNC Barack Obama* was slyly opining to chortles from the crowd, “My opponent and his running mate are…new…to foreign policy, but from all that we’ve seen and heard, they want to take us back to an era […]


Obama Is Fighting Islamic Extremism By Building Mosques

For some reason I see a bunch of folks republishing a WSB-TV report from November 2011 today, The gist of the piece is that your tax dollars are being spent by President Obama and his State Department rebuilding mosques around the world. WASHINGTON, D.C — A Channel 2 Action News investigation found that the State […]


CNN Plays Where’s al-Waldo

It’s 12:00 pm. Do you know where your dictator’s wife is? What registers as ‘news’ is an endlessly debatable, subjective argument. But what rates as ‘above the fold’ or top dead center headline news is much less so. For CNN this morning, there was no debate. The most consequential development in US and world events was […]


Despot Support Network; Putin sends aid to Assad

The stakes just went up and Israel’s window of opportunity has just shrunk. Interesting times are upon us.


Am I seeing a pattern here?

Is it just me, or does death seem to always be hovering around the Obama Administration? Attacks by US military drone aircraft have dramatically increased, leading to the likely deaths of dozens of civilians in Pakistan and Afghanistan — even though the Administration officially claims zero civilian casualties Operation Fast and Furious deliberately placed automatic […]


Arab spring, foreboding winter

Couple of stories ringing alarms this morning. First up, out of Libya: Libya is in danger of falling into the hands of Islamic extremists if a stable government is not rapidly established, Nato’s secretary-general warned last night. In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Islamic extremists would “try to exploit” any […]
