It’s official – there is no Iran nuclear framework deal, just wishful thinking.

Iran Supreme Ayatollah: White House lying about nuke deal

Posted by
4/9/2015 at 10:00am
Within hours of the White House celebrating a supposed Iran nuclear framework “deal,” it became apparent that the various sides — the U.S., the Iranians and the Europeans — had very different understandings of the deal. Those competing narratives now have moved to the stage of open declarations by senior Iranian officials…

The Republican “War on Women” isn’t over and if liberals have their way, it never will be.

‘A lot of big words and big thoughts’ – State Dept. on Kissinger Op-ed

Posted by
4/8/2015 at 8:46pm
The State Department stepped in it. Again. Now infamous for her dippy soundbites, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf might have topped her “ISIS just needs jobs” gaffe today. Henry Kissinger and George Shultz, both former Secretaries of State, wrote an op-ed that was published in the Wall Street Journal yesterday. Brutally critical of…

India assists Americans evacuating Yemen in wake of weak State Department response

Posted by
4/8/2015 at 5:00pm
One has to ask, what exactly is going on at the US State Department? We have been following the deterioration of Yemen for months. Despite the obvious dangers to American citizens within this country, I guess our bureaucrats decided they really didn’t need an evacuation plan. Fortunately, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and…

I reported the other day how U. Penn anti-Israel students try backdoor divestment ploy: I will give the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement credit for one thing: It is highly adaptive. The run-of-the mill anti-Israel divestment pushes on college campuses have had only mild success. Most often the attempt to get…

Cheney says what we’re all thinking about Obama’s foreign policy

Posted by

Will 2016 be the year of the foreign policy presidential cycle? It might be, if President Obama keeps up his march to mediocrity. The President’s time in the White House has been plagued with an apparent desire to make America look as weak (I’m sure he would say “humbled”) as possible….

Late last month, immigration lawyers from the DoJ had the uncomfortable task of standing before a federal judge in Texas and explaining to the court why important information about the Administration’s deferred action program was kept out of sight. They had good reason to—at least from their perspective. After President Obama…

Posted by

Remember this? It’s one of the few papers that Obama wrote while in college or law school that is still available, a 1983 article that appeared in the Columbia campus paper. The article is mostly straight reportage and quotes about the Nuclear Freeze Movement, featuring organizations called “Arms Race Alternatives” (ARA) and…

Last weekend a cop shot of a fleeing unarmed black man in Charleston, SC.   Not all the facts are in, but the video (apparently captured by a cell phone) is damning; it shows the cop firing at the fleeing black man several times, finally bringing him to the ground.  There seems…

If there’s one thing the men and women who bravely put their lives on the line defending America and freedom shouldn’t have to worry about, it’s whether or not they’re offending anyone in the process. Yet according to Bill Whittle, who has interacted with members of our armed forces, that’s exactly what’s…

At this point, I’ve pretty much given up on the idea that I’ll be able to make it through a week without somehow being maligned, insulted, or “made to care” about something by the President of the United States. He is who he is, and he’s made it abundantly clear that…
