Why Does Israel Get a Pass? »

Are you an American or a Christian? Are you an American or a Muslim? Are you an American or a Jew? A deliberately provocative question. I don’t know about you, but I am troubled by the spectacle of American politicians trooping to genuflect before the annual meeting of the American Israel Political Action Committee (AIPAC). [...]

What is a “True” Conservative? »

The Barry Goldwater era is long dead. He was the genuine symbol of “conservatism.” If he popped from the grave today and showed up at the CPAC conference, I suspect he too would be booed and considered too much a liberal flake. Republicans and Democrats find themselves facing significant opposition from within–the extremes on the [...]

Iran and Al Qaeda–The Big Lie »

Fox News is busy today carrying water for the NeoCons and the Netanyahu crowd with the claim that the Obama Administration is sitting on intel recovered from Osama Bin Laden’s porn palace in Abottabad 5 years ago that shows Iran and Al Qaeda are working together. Horseshit!! We’ve seen this play before. Remember the hot [...]

Final Proof, John Kerry is a Moron »

Yes. We knew he was a sanctimonious, pompous ass. But Moron? Totally. Kerry declared yesterday that we are the safest ever: Our citizens, our world today is actually, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans [...]

Senior State CT Official Charged with Soliciting Sex with Minor »

Daniel Rosen, a senior GS employee in the State Department’s Bureau of Counter Terrorism, was arrested yesterday in a sex sting operation: Fairfax County Police officials say Daniel Rosen was arrested by a county detective about noon at his Washington, D.C. home after he allegedly sought to arrange sex with a minor. The detective, a [...]

VA Secretary Claims Transgender Status »

Well, almost. VA Secretary Robert MacDonald told a homeless guy that he was “Special Forces.” Nope. He was a Ranger, not an SF guy. But even the Military Times gets the story wrong: Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald has apologized for making false claims about having served in the the U.S. military’s elite special operations [...]

A Raffle for the Troops »

Dalton Fury is the nom de guerre of the retired Delta Force officer who hunted down and surrounded Bin Laden back in the fall of 2001. The subsequent refusal of President Bush and his National Security team to put in more troops enabled Bin Laden to escape and cross the border into Pakistan. Dalton Fury [...]

Some Belated Oscar Musings »

Don’t know if you cared or not to watch the Oscars last night. Basically, the show, if it could be called that, had a few bright moments surrounded by tedium and banality. The writing was pure crap. Sending Doogie Howser out on stage to spill that garbage from his lips was truly embarrassing. The writers [...]

Why Obama Does Not Understand Mainstream America »

Rudy Guiliani caught a lot of heat this week from the ruling political and media class. He had the audacity to challenge Barack Obama’s love of America. The faux outrage, particularly among Obama’s media lackeys, is pretty amusing. Let’s just deal with the facts. FACT NUMBER ONE–Barack Obama did not grow up in a traditional [...]

Obama’s Bizarrely Incompetent Military Plans for the Islamic State »

Do you remember when General Dwight D. Eisenhower briefed the press six months before the start of the invasion of Europe, now known as “D-Day,” about the allies plans for re-conquering the European continent? No? Yes, NO!! You cannot remember it because it never happened. Way back then there was the message, “Loose Lips Sink [...]

Yes, Barack Obama is a Total Moron on Radical Sunni Islamic Terrorism »

I have tied my hands to my chair. Why? If they were free I would be pulling my hair out after listening to the crazy comments of the clueless fool occupying the White House. Barack Obama may be sincere in his belief about the roots and origins of Islamic terrorism, but it is a grossly [...]

Barack Obama, Beyond Clueless on Islamic Terrorism — UPDATE »

The White House Conference on Violent Extremism is slated to start this afternoon. This debacle illustrates everything that is wrong with Barack Obama. Go to whitehouse.gov, which is the President’s website. As of 1pm edt today there is not a single mention of this conference. Here is the screenshot: Not a word about terrorism or [...]

There is Terrorism and There is the IS »

I do not care whether you are personally frightened or horrified. Terrorism, in its purest form, is ultimately an act of weakness and desperation. There is a case to be made that the techniques and practice of terrorism emerged during the early dark days of World War II in Europe. Britain’s Special Operations Executive aka [...]

The Madness of King Obama, The Craziness of Chucky Krauthammer »

This is a bipartisan mental disorder and my critique is strictly non-partisan. Both Democrats and Republicans are taking leave of their senses and putting America and her citizens at grave risk. Let’s start with Obama’s belligerency towards Russia and his totally insane decision to put US combat forces into Ukraine. Disguised as “military” trainers, Obama [...]

RIP Kayla Jean Mueller »

Ok kids. Pay attention. Earnest, heartfelt beliefs and sympathy for suffering children is not a magic cloak that will protect you from harm. I can’t direct you to ask Kayla Jean Mueller, an erstwhile volunteer who got swept up in a religious civil war in Syria. The Administration and many members of Congress are insisting [...]

General Flynn for President »

If you did not catch General Michael Flynn’s appearance on Fox News Sunday then stop what you are doing and watch genius on display: DIA under the leadership of General Flynn did amazing and important work in protecting America. Flynn did not allow DIA to become a political cheerleader. Sadly, the same cannot be said [...]

Brian Williams, The Fabulist »

Why is it that some public figures who have achieved financial and professional success are congenital liars and fraudsters? Why is NBC’s Brian Willaims such an insecure little prick? In case you have been locked away in a cave, events of the past week have exposed Brian Williams as a guy who fabricated a death [...]

Islamic State–An Eye for an Eye »

Well, give the Islamic State credit for one thing–they are taking depravity and inhumanity to new levels. They doused the captured Jordanian with petrol and lit him on fire. I do not think that this is what Jim Morrison and the Doors had in mind with their hit song. The Islamic State certainly knows how [...]

CIA’s Newest Replacement of the Replacement »

Word last week was that a lady at CIA had been selected to replace outgoing Chief of the National Clandestine Service, Mr. Frank Archibald. The lady, who remains nameless in these pages because she is undercover, was totally inappropriate and unqualified. Let’s ignore her reputation for sleeping with foreign “developmentals” (i.e., screwing guys she wanted [...]

The Lynching of former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling »

A grave injustice was done this week as the CIA and the Obama Administration are out of control in their bid to scapegoat one-time CIA Case Officer, Jeffrey Sterling. Jeff Stein has the story: “… the government failed to produce any proof that Sterling talked with Risen about the Iran operation, Lang and other close [...]
