The Bowe Bergdahl release just doesn’t add up

Warner Todd Huston has already posted about the bizarre prisoner exchange of Bowe Bergdahl, but there are so many strange circumstances surrounding this story that I think another post is justified. First, there is a preponderance of evidence suggesting that Bergdahl was not captured, but was instead a misfit who deliberately walked away from his […]

Rep. Peter King is a supporter of terrorists

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) is an ardent supporter of a terrorist group that has murdered thousands of people in the UK. Keep that in mind as you listen to this insane rant by King. We’ll get back to the substance of King’s rant in just a minute, but first let’s take up the charge that […]

House Defeats Bill to House Terror Detainees in U.S. Prisons

Once again Democrats tried to get a bill passed in the House of Representatives to fund an expansion of U.S. prisons in order to house terror suspects in the U.S. heartland instead of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. As in years previous, however, the measure was defeated. On June 4 the House shot down an amendment introduced […]

My Thoughts on This Memorial Day

Author’s note: I wrote this back in August of 2007 under the title In the Company of Men on the eve of my son’s departure for Basic Training. He is currently on his 2nd Afghan deployment and has just re-enlisted and been promoted to Sergeant. I could not be more proud of him and his comrades. For me, […]

Who Dares Call it Terror?

In what is sure to become an iconic image, a London Muslim, hands stained with the blood of his victim lying in the street behind him, is calm as he explains murdering a soldier in cold blood. In short, it was for jihad. CNN reported the man in the image said of himself and his […]

For the Boston Bombers, the President is Just Putting On Ayers …

I have listened, with fascination and horror, to the President’s words since the Boston bombing. I found them a dispassionate litany of the obvious that did little to inspire or encourage. Among them, he noted: … on days like this there are no Republicans or Democrats – we are Americans … …that all Americans stand with the […]

Flashback: Candy Crowley Dismissed Oppression of Women By Taliban

With the focus on the horrible job of “moderating” perpetrated by CNN’s Candy Crowley at the latest 2012 presidential debate, it is instructive to take a look back at some of her past work for CNN. For instance, in a 2010 interview with former President George W. Bush, Crowley dismissed Bush’s correct assertion that women […]

Video: Bragging Mr. President? Heroes Don’t Spike the Football

This video perfectly illuminates the unseemliness of Obama’s constant gloating and bragging that he, himself killed Osama bin Laden. This video comes out just in time as members of the SEALs are slamming Obama for bragging so much about bagging binnie. As the caption notes: America knows who deserves the credit for killing Osama Bin […]

“Bush Hatred Prevails Over Obama Love”

So writes Timothy Dalrymple, who explores the interesting phenomenon of how liberals are handling the stunning reversals in policies enacted by President Obama, compared to the idealism of Candidate Obama: [T]here’s no question that the Obama administration has been far less different from the Bush administration than was promised during the campaign. What’s so astonishing, […]

The K-Daffy Legacy

Well, it looks like Muammar K-Daffy is finally dead. Driven from power by rebels (backed up by a US-dominated (but not led!) coalistion), driven to ground in his home town, finally caught and shot. And good riddance.   Oh, there’s a lot of positive things to say about ol’ Mo taking the big dirt nap. […]
