This video (h/t Tim Blair) carries a certain satisfaction. It shows the premature detonation of a roadside IED, taking out the bad guys planting the devide before the good guys had to fire a shot. That alone makes it worth posting.

Afghanistan is one issue around which there should be bi-partisan support. The consequences of the Taliban taking over the country and giving al-Qaeda and other radical Islamist groups a home base is too much to risk.

Obama seems to have a profound sense that the stakes are greater than the latest poll...

The “I’m not a doctor, I just play one on TV” analogy moved into the political sphere long ago, most recently when a faux doctor appeared at a town hall run by Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.

Now we have something of a reverse analogy, someone who actually was a 9/11 Truther...

The internet is abuzz today with news that Glenn Beck foe and Obama administration Green Czar Van Jones is a 9/11 Truther, meaning he thinks the Bush administration either planned or at least knew of the 9/11 attacks in advance.

Tom Ridge’s bombshell — the allegation that he felt political pressure to raise the threat level in the run-up to the 2004 election — is not the real bombshell. The real story here is that Tom Ridge has joined Meghan McCain in the freakish side-show of Republicans in name only who...

An article in the NY Times, Climate Change Seen as Threat to U.S. Security, deserves a special place in the annals of journalism in the service of liberal politics. The thrust of the article is that global climate change “could” cause massive geopolitical disruption in the next 20-30 years, so we...

Bombing the funerals of your opponents is a red line in most conflicts. The Israelis don’t bomb Hamas or Hizbullah funerals, and vice versa. George Bush refused to bomb Taliban funerals. Al-Qaeda, however, has no such compunctions, as it repeatedly has sent suicide bombers to attack people attending the funerals of...

Paul Krugman proved, once again, why he has no credibility. In a column in today’s New York Times, titled “The Big Hate,” Krugman blames conservatives for the shooting at the Holocaust Museum because conservatives have had the audacity to harshly criticize the Obama administration.

One thing, to a certainty, is that the Holocaust Museum shooting by a long-time neo-Nazi white supremacist, who previously committed an attempted shooting at the Federal Reserve in 1981, will be used for political purposes.
