How many more Americans and others will die before Obama gets serious about this plague of evil?
You may have heard the usual litany from those who want us to refrain from acting to counter the ISIS monsters currently on a killing spree in Iraq and Syria. It’s none of our business they say when Christians and Yazidis are slaughtered in a genocidal rampage.
James Wright Foley is the first American to fall victim to this plague of evil. He was beheaded in a gruesome video (WARNING GRAPHIC). I challenge those who say we should not do anything to counter ISIS to watch that video and realize that unless we stop these monsters they will be coming here to the U.S. Notice that the killer → Read More
I did not intend to write about what is happening in Ferguson, MO so soon, but this question needs to be asked. Why has Officer Darren Wilson, the man who shot Michael Brown, already being tried and convicted before the full facts are known about what happened on August 9? No, a trial has not been conducted, but a grand jury will soon be convened. No, Officer Darren Wilson has not sat in a trial before a jury of his peers, but he has already been convicted in the court of public opinion. That public opinion seems to run as high as the Governor of Missouri.
You can watch the video of Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s statement below, but let me include a quote of → Read More
I have yet to write about the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, for one simple reason. I have not felt like wading into the mud that seems to be getting thicker every day. Even with Missouri National Guard now helping the Missouri Highway Patrol police the area, Monday night was still dangerous on the streets in Ferguson. Dozens were arrested and two people were shot by the protestors. We do not know how this is going to end up, but I believe I can safely say, it will not be good.
Simply put, the situation in Ferguson is a total mess. There is no real reason for it, even if it comes out that the officer had no real reason to shoot → Read More
Not that this will make the slightest difference to those intent on looting, violence or promoting a political agenda!
UPDATE: Attorney General Holder sends 40 FBI Agents to Ferguson to investigate! Meanwhile, in Chicago last weekend 7 were killed and 28 wounded in shootings. No FBI to track down their killers.
UPDATE 2: More than a dozen witnesses support police version of events. Audio of radio caller gives Policeman Darren Wilson version.
UPDATE 3: Democrats erect voter registration booth near Brown Memorial. Tell me this isn’t all about politics!
Autopsy results as well as other information have come out in the past few days that paint a different story from the one being promoted in much of the media. I’ll → Read More
Some things defy reasonable explanation. In the vernacular from the Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas region, that means some things just don’t make sense. Such is the case with the latest from the wonderful government agency charged with making sure you and I do not kill our planet with pollution. I really thought they could get no worse than trying to regulate runoff water from rainfall or bovine flatulence, but the EPA may have just outdone themselves. They are accusing Texas of polluting Illinois. Go figure that one out. Now that you have picked your jaw up off the floor, let us examine, as best we can, this latest batch of stupidity from the halls of big government.
The EPA has the authority, as granted to → Read More
Again this morning, I want to pivot away from Israel, Hamas, and the rest of the world that is in turmoil because of Islamic terrorists. Instead, I want to focus on another of President Obama’s prime achievements. According to him, that is. I would be speaking about ObamaCare. It is the monstrous legislation that only exists because the Democrats rammed it down our throats and Chief Justice John Roberts changed Webster’s Dictionary so he could vote to uphold the tax/penalty. I believe there is ample proof that the bill is a disaster. Nothing in it has worked as designed. From the website down to the tiniest detail, it is a colossal failure. And that’s before it is even fully implemented yet.
There were two main → Read More
At least the Pope understands the grave nature of the crisis and understands the need for concrete action not talk!
As he does in so much else Obama continues to dither on what to do about the unfolding genocide in Iraq. His confused policy of limited air strikes, which even his own Pentagon spokesman admits won’t stop ISIS is an embarrassment.
By contrast Pope Francis speaks with absolute clarity. In a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon concludes:
The violent attacks that are sweeping across Northern Iraq cannot but awaken the consciences of all men and women of goodwill to concrete acts of solidarity by protecting those affected or threatened by violence and assuring the necessary and urgent assistance for the many displaced people → Read More
This is somewhat off the beaten path of the news that is garnering more attention, but it is more than newsworthy. Every once in a while, it helps to insert a dose of reality into the rhetoric that we hear every day. Such is the case with what some people call the Obama economy. Mr. “I won the election” President likes to tout his economic achievements, telling us constantly how the economy has recovered. Of course, that only started taking place after he finally ran out of excuses to blame President Bush. At any rate, he has no problems reminding us of the recovery we are in. Trouble is, the reality tells us Obama’s economic recovery isn’t so much of a recovery. Even President Obama’s → Read More
I know this isn’t a popular view to hold in today’s America, but it seems to me religion is under an ever-increasing pressure and attack in America. Specifically, Christians are under attack. I know some atheists will deny that statement, but I believe it can be upheld by looking at the facts. The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is running rampant with the lawsuits it is filing. Not necessarily in this order or in order of importance, the FFRF has decided the IRS hasn’t been doing its due diligence when it comes to policing churches. They also have decided that a discount being offered at Mary’s Gourmet Diner in Winston-Salem, NC was violating someone’s civil rights. You see, the diner gave everyone who prayed over → Read More
There will always be questions that beg to be pondered. We could start with two that are similar in comparison. Why does President Obama not make the small effort it would take to use his influence with the Mexican government to free U.S. Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi, who has been sitting in a Mexican jail for almost five months. His plight seems to be on the ignore list for the Obama administration. Nary a word from a President who bragged that we did not leave our people behind when he was espousing the virtues of trading five Taliban prisoners for Bowe Bergdahl. The man is likely a deserter from the United States Army, but President Obama moved a lot of hell and high water to → Read More
He made this mess by pulling all U.S. troops out. He needs to clean it up! Dismissing seriousness of the ISIS threat Obama in January said: “If a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.” Some jayvee team hunh?
In his Nobel Prize winning six volume memoir of the Second World War, Winston Churchill described the advantages and strengths that were tossed away by the West in a vain hope to preserve peace. Instead they got a war that was beyond any horror they might have imagined:
Here is a line of milestones to disaster. Here is a catalogue of surrenders, at first when all was easy and later when things were harder, to the ever-growing German power. But now → Read More
Egyptian officials are struggling to broker a 72 hour extension to the cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. At the same time, Hamas spokesperson Mushir al-Masri had made clear that war may only be beginning.
“The war is not over yet. Our men are still in the field, manning forward positions, our fingers are on the trigger, and our rockets are trained on Tel Aviv, and Lod and beyond,” al-Masri said at a mass rally today.
Looking at media coverage of the re-ignited conflict in Gaza shows what many agree is a terrible ignorance of the causes of the war. The majority of media outlets seem to either blame Israel or hold Israel and Hamas in equal moral equivalence.
Many journalists and television news personalities do → Read More
I know many of the people who may read this post are already fans of Trey Gowdy. He a Republican member of the House of Representatives and he has been charged with leading the investigation into what really happened in Benghazi. To put him in a nutshell, he is a former prosecutor and it shows when he sets his sights on a witness during questioning. He’s like a pit bull, with no give in him until he gets the truth from the poor soul who happens to be under his gun. No quibbling or waffling, just a single-minded purpose to get to the truth.
I came across this at Angry White Dude, who is fond of asking his readers to “fire away, inquiring minds want → Read More
