Salafi Jihadism and US Grand Strategy Part III – The Avenging Angels

  War is a terrible thing.  Even when it is just and properly executed, war means death and destruction.  Worse, many brilliant and experienced warriors have observed that wars never follow the original plan.  Worse still, the politicians who plan and begin wars, and who are responsible for explaining the reasons and need for support […]

Salafi Jihadism and US Grand Strategy Part II – The Grand Illusion

We live in an age of morons.  Unfortunately, many of them now hold high office.  As an example of this foolishness at the top, consider articles like this nonsense from Foreign Policy magazine. http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2013/01/09/a_new_US_grand_strategy Arrogant socialists imagine that key strategic goals for US foreign policy in the coming decades will depend on impractical economic whims, […]

My New Favorite Person

Charles Ramsey is a hero. He, with other local residents in a section of Cleveland, helped rescue three young women and a 6 year old from 10 years of captivity by a trio of perverts. Though the substance is serious, Mr. Ramsey’s account of what happened is quite animated.   Someone needs to give this man […]

Salafi Jihadism and U.S. Grand Strategy – Part I

In 1972, Great Britain essentially ceded its role in the Middle East to the United States.  The move was one of political expedience, as the UK’s leaders hoped to cut their costs supporting long-time allies by passing the duty off to America.  The thinking was that the U.S. was already committed on a global scale […]

Mum’s The Word About Hillary’s Health

Sifting through the seemingly endless bookmarks of articles I had hoped to read these past recent hectic months, I came across a few things which just defy reality. Back in January, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a potential 2016 Republican Presidential candidate, gave a press conference in Union Beach, NJ concerning the painfully slow process with […]

Rest In Peace, Iron Lady

The Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, has passed away at 87 following a stroke. I’m rarely at a loss for words, but this is one of those times. Margaret Thatcher was one of the great defenders of liberty. She will be sorely missed. I’ll let the Tweets and articles stand as a memorial to her. Flag […]

Which One Would You Trust?

A few days ago, I saw the viral picture of the now famous dog ‘Tonik,’ who looks like he has a human face. “That’s real news!” (As proclaimed by Ralphie’s father in the movie ‘A Christmas Story,’ refering to a newspaper article about a man who swallowed a yo-yo.) Disturbingly, it seems as if this dog has gotten more […]

CBO: 7 million to lose employer-based insurance when ACA rules take effect

But don’t worry – your family will be able to buy health insurance through a government exchange for a mere $20,000 a year! As much as I would like to call this fiction, it isn’t.  The Affordable Care Act health insurance mandate and penalty regulations are confusing and ridiculous. An employer must offer each employee […]

“How Did It Come To This?”

Well, as we are all aware of by now, the latest crisis being used to spook the bejesus out of Americans is the upcoming, scary-sounding ‘fiscal cliff.’ Though the fiscal cliff may indeed have the potential to cause some uncomfortable financial consequences for the American taxpayer, let’s not kid ourselves about the true motives behind […]

Yes Virginia, sooner or later we will all be paying more taxes

My previous post dealt with two “surprise” taxes buried in the new Affordable Care Act regulations.  And for the past year, observers have been listing the plethora of new taxes scheduled to take affect in 2013, fiscal cliff or no fiscal cliff. But that isn’t the whole story.  Far from it, in fact. All that […]

#Benghazi: Obama’s Lack of Concern On Rice’s Lies (Updated)

Weekly Standard has this article with video. Emphasis added is mine: In response to a question from reporter Major Garrett on whether the Obama administration’s mishandling of Benghazi raises “core questions of basic competency,” press secretary Jay Carney revealed that Barack Obama “is not particularly concerned” about whether Susan Rice misled the American people: “What the president […]

We’re Going To Need A Bigger Tank

MSNBC is now so deep into the tank for Obama that they are going to need a bigger one.  I previously poked fun at the Obama campaign for changing their slogan from FORWARD to FORWARD!  I saw this MSNBC ad last night and found the online version today.  Apparently the new slogan for MSNBC is […]
