They have come to praise the treaty … and bury it.

The Obama Administration’s Nonproliferation Hypocrisy

Posted by
4/9/2015 at 6:45pm
I visited the State Department’s website earlier this week and I was greeted by an item hailing the 45th anniversary of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT). After hailing the treaty the article goes on to say more explicitly, “[i]f we didn’t already have the NPT, we would desperately need it today.” A couple…

Hugging without permission now ‘sexual assault’ at U.Va.

I and my wife are happily married, and neither of us is abusive, much less criminal. But under the University of Virginia’s broad new “sexual assault” policy, my wife could be deemed guilty of “sexual assault” when she hugs me without advance permission. So, apparently, would any couple in America that engages in…

Mother Jones’ latest scoop: Ted Cruz had a job

Posted by
4/9/2015 at 3:40pm
It’s been less than three weeks since Senator Cruz announced his presidential candidacy. First, Ted Cruz supposedly scared a child in New Hampshire, only he didn’t. Then, Cruz was a hypocrite for exploring health insurance options on the exchange… just like the rest of Congress. And now? ONE TIME TED CRUZ…

Did Clinton Foundation donation from Colombian oil company result in favorable trade agreement?

Posted by
4/9/2015 at 1:50pm
A report released today by the International Business Times suggests the Clinton Foundation was indeed a thoroughfare for trading influence and political favors. Unless of course the timing was purely coincidental, IBT’s report indicates the Clinton Foundation accepted money from a Colombian oil company while Clinton was serving as Secretary of State….

Wut? Former RI Senator and Governor Linc Chafee for President?

Posted by

Former U.S. Senator and Rhode Island Governor Linc Chafee has announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee. When Rhode Island reader and blogger Tony emailed me about it, I thought it was a joke. Chafee has a reputation of a buffoonish political character who switches political sides on a whim. On…

Back in 2012, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stood before the body of the United Nations with a piece of poster board and a red marker. During the two weeks prior to that moment, he had been waging a public battle with the Obama Administration over the dangerous progression of Iran’s…

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. Newly announced presidential candidate Rand Paul appeared on the Today Show yesterday morning and had the nerve to push back when Savannah Guthrie put words in his mouth.

‘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…

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…
