The Next Terrorist Attack, Coming From Europe »

I am in Europe on business, traveling in Germany and Austria. The number of conservative Muslims is jarring and shocking. At times, I felt I was strolling the streets of Cairo rather than sauntering down a boulevard in Munich. Here are a couple of shots of two different women in Munich: I have traveled regularly [...]

From No Drama to No Clue, Obama is the Real Slim Shady »

Once touted as the ultimate cool customer, Barack “No Drama” Obama has unmasked himself. Not only is he devoid of anything approaching cool, calm decision making, turns out he is a nitwit. His comment re ISIS apparently came like a sharp kick to the testicles to many in the media–i.e., we don’t have a strategy: [...]

A Visit to Dachau »

Dachau was the first concentration camp in Germany. It was the model for subsequent camps in Germany–Buchenwald, Ravensbruck, Bergen Belsen, Malthausen. My first time. The camp is a mere ten minute drive on a bus from the Dachau Banhapthof (train station). It sits in the northeast corner of Dachau. This is the entrance to the [...]

Obama Remains a Moron When it Comes to Using the Military »

Just because a blind squirrel stumbles over a nut does not mean that the squirrel is an expert nut hunter. Similarly, just because Obama eventually was pushed to greenlight the mission to take out Osama Bin Laden does not mean he is von Clauswitz. His inexperience and ignorance with respect to military operations and strategy [...]

Obama Putting While ISIS Beheads »

The murder of James Wright Foley by an ISIS operator electrified the internet. If you have not seen the video, you can find it here, at LiveLeak. This is a horrific image. I only recommend watching it for one reason–to appreciate the evil of what we are fighting. I listen in amazement to the media [...]

The New War in Iraq »

Sorry for my absence. I’m in Europe working, not playing. Fascinating perspective from here. I am free of the babble from Fox, MSNBC and CNN. Instead, I’m getting a daily dose of CNN International, which is quite good. The messages are clear and disturbing–Barack Obama is totally disconnected, ISIS is a growing menace and Europe [...]

Premature Celebration In Iraq »

Barack Obama, with help from the media, is having his “Mission Accomplished” moment with respect to ISIS and Iraq. The headline? Iraq retakes dam at Mosul. Really? Just explain to me how aerial bombardment works on ISIS fighters holding a fixed position like the dam. Remember, if the dam breaks then the Tigris valley will [...]

Why Did Robin Williams Ignore His Own Movies? »

One of the other sad ironies of Robin Williams decision to choose the chicken shit way out of life is the messages he brought to the public thru his immense body of work as an actor. Some of his best work dealt with suicide and death in a memorable fashion–Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society [...]

Most of the Republicans and Democrats Still Getting it Wrong on Syria and Iraq »

It is maddening. Did not matter what channel I watched this morning, you could find a Republican or Democrat or pundit saying that we missed our chance to stop ISIS by not funding Syrian rebels back in 2012. That is pure madness and fantasy. This fantasy view is predicated on the narrative that Syira’s Bashir [...]

Michael Brown Was An Asshole, But Did Not Deserve Bullets »

An ass whipping by his Daddy? Absolutely. Michael Brown was a big fucking bully. Like many 18 year olds, thinking with his dick and not his brain. The videotape of him shoving the convenience store clerk and stealing Swisher sweets. Good Christ!! Was he gay too? Brown deserved to be arrested and punished for this [...]

Fascism and Murder in Ferguson, Missouri »

There is enough evidence in to fully justify Federal intervention in Ferguson, Missouri. I was born and raised in the Show Me State. Fortunately, I came from the other side of the State. This is not a matter of rushing to judgment–the facts in so far simply point to more than an over zealous police [...]

Hug It Out, Bitch »

News is atwitter with word that Hillary and Barack are, “Going to Hug it Out.” Really? The only question I have, Who is the Bitch? Actor Jeremy Piven put this phrase in our lexicon: “Bitch” can be a technical term for a female dog. “Bitch” can be a sexist term to disparage a woman. And [...]

Is Hillary Clinton Crazy? »

A truly stunning and clueless interview performance by Hillary Clinton, who recently sat down and told the “truth” to Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg. The key passage was her comment on Syria: Well, his former secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton, isn’t buying it. In an interview with me earlier this week, she used her sharpest language [...]

Fuck You, Robin Williams–UPDATE »

Stick with me here. I do have a point. Hearing that Robin Williams ended his life today left me sad and angry. Actually, mostly angry. If you had to rate the top ten comics of all time, from all countries, Williams would be in the top five. He was a man of enormous talent and [...]

Knowing the Enemy (And It is Not Obama) »

Bush’s idiotic invasion of Iraq in 2003 sowed the seeds for what ISIS now is. But the fault is not solely with Bush. Obama’s pursuit of the Arab Spring and his meddling in Syria, which included helping arm the Syrian rebels, have fueled the rise of ISIS. If you have the chance, please take time [...]

Obama Does a Nero and Heads for Vacation, World Burns »

Rome is not burning. It is worse than that. ISIS aka the Islamic State is a bona fide Army and is poised to slaughter Kurds, Iraqis and Americans. And what is Obama doing? Ordering up weak ass air strikes that will do little to change the tactical and strategic situation on the ground. Meanwhile, Russia [...]

Obama’s New Iraq Nears Collapse and Slaughter UPDATE »

I don’t think you’ll be hearing much from Barack Obama in the coming days about how he brought an end to the US role in the war in Iraq. Sort of tough to sell that spin when the television is filled with images of dead children, raped women, headless men and desecrated Christian churches and [...]

Israel and Hamas, The Stupidity Factor is Great »

Flipping between channels–Fox, CNN, MSNBC, BBC and Al Jazeera–it was impossible to escape mass stupidity. I had two favorite moments. The first involved the nitwit Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer. What a chucklehead he is. Dremer is the same guy who came up with this jewel a month ago: Israel’s ambassador to [...]

Israel, Not Hamas, Started the Latest War in Gaza »

If you think the current Israeli invasion of Gaza is a response to the discovery of the bodies of three kidnapped Israeli teenagers in late June, think again. Israel’s invasion was a pre-planned action and, if you simply go back and examine the news reports since April, you will realize that the missing teens became [...]

Kill the Palestinians? How About Genocide? »

Think I’m kidding about the Nazi mentality among some Israelis? It is not an anti-semitic fantasy. It is a sick, sad reality. I am reproducing a Blog posted by Yochana Gordon in the Times of Israel. As a hopeful sign that not all Israelis are batshit crazy, the blog was pulled by the editors at [...]
