Let me be clear at the outset of this commentary. I am not making an attempt to impress you with my piety. Heck, I’m just another old Pharisee trying to make my way through my remaining days on this confused, baffling, wondrous, puzzling, and often enigmatic little mud ball floating in third place from the […]
The President who, in 2009, said he thought it unseemly to “meddle” in the affairs of Iran when protesters against its regime were being shot dead in the streets of Tehran, announced to the world on August 15, 2013 that he was angered by the killing of civilians in the streets of Cairo as the […]
Amidst the graffiti on the wall outside the U.S. embassy in Cairo, one of the rioters scrawled “1.5 Billion Bin Ladens.” Last time I heard, the last thing bin Laden saw was a member of Seal Team Six just before he took a bullet to the head. That is the way a nation that has […]
The one thing I have never understood is the way Americans seem to refuse to accept the fact that the worst attack on the homeland since Pearl Harbor was planned, funded, carried out by Muslims, and was celebrated by Muslims around the world. Perhaps the reluctance to relate the attack to “a religion” had to […]
What if Christmas was a traditional time for Christians to set about bombing one another? We might find that strange, but the recent “holy” month of Ramadan in Iraq was celebrated with bombings and shootings that killed 409 people and wounded 975 according to an August 20 Agence” France Press report from Baghdad. Apparently if […]
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders describes narcissism as a personality disorder that “revolves around a pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and sense of entitlement.” We all need a bit of narcissism that maintains our self-esteem and a positive outlook on life. Performing artists and sports figures, for example, need it to […]
In early November 2009 Americans were shocked to learn that an Army psychiatrist, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, had shot and killed twelve soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, and wounded thirty-one others. Because of the unrelenting political correctness prevailing in the Army and other services, all the signs that Hasan was a ticking time bomb were […]
Durban III is about “racism.” So how does that square with a statement by Maen Arewikat, the PA Ambassador to the United States, who last week said that an independent Palestinian state would take steps to force Jews living in the West Bank to leave. In an interview with USA Today, he said it would be in the best interest of Israelis and Palestinians to “be separated.” The Nazis had a word for this, “Judenrein.”
Fortunately, we’re not forced to subsidize the dhimmi/anti-American MSM—yet. But will someone please tell me, 10 years after 9/11, why we are paying for local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies whose primary mission appears to be to run interference for people who seek to murder us, and who make it their business to disarm, confuse, harass, sexually fondle, and even arrest patriotic Americans of sound instincts and judgment?
A problem with which American administrations have grappled since the days of Thomas Jefferson’s presidency has been Arabs and the Middle East. The Marine anthem mentions “the shores of Tripoli” because, in 1801, Jefferson sent them to there to put down the Barbary pirates.

For 34 of its 64 years, Pakistan has been run by generals whose military intelligence presumably works in league with its Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI), though both have their own agendas. It is unlikely that much civilian control over either exists.
Almeida wrote, “If we didn’t know, we are a failed state; if we did know, we are a rogue state. But does anyone believe they didn’t know?”
Sound money policies are the central axis on which pivot all strategic objectives and indeed, those policies determine the very course of history and national survival. One of those central concepts, is garnering the spoils of war through the new found mineral riches in Afghanistan. Another, is sending Saudi Arabia a bill for the destruction of the World Trade Center, with special provision to be made for bereaved American families of the victims.
By all indications, the president’s agenda appears to include destroying not just America, but Western Civilization as well, as evidenced by his dictatorial handling of the Egyptian uprising and his throwing of support behind the dangerous Muslim Brotherhood.
Almost from its beginning, Islam has been a religion divided by warring camps. The tragedy of Islam is that Muslims are far more likely to die at the hands of their co-religionists than by those outside their faith. All religions have their sects and divisions, but Islam’s history is particularly defined by the violence that began shortly after the death of its founder.
In his book, “In the words of our enemies”, Jed Babbin, wrote “Like the Nazis, the radical Islamists play on the same sense of persecution and cultural inferiority that many people in underdeveloped nations possess because they are oppressed. And, like the Nazis, the Islamists have convinced their followers that the problems of their world are the fault of others. The Islamists blame every ill of their world on America, the West, the Jews, and Israel.”
What we are seeing in the Middle East including Tunisia, Yemen, Egypt, and to some extent Jordan and Lebanon, is a direct result of the Obama administration’s failure to support Israel — and for Obama’s obvious favor of the Muslim nations surrounding our only democratic ally in the region
