Terror On The Border And Abroad

With all the beheadings going on, I was heartened to see over the weekend that Nancy Pelosi finally realizes there is a serious threat to the civilized world. "Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy," Pelosi said, "if Republicans win the Senate."

Return Of The Security Moms

Two stories on the front page of today's Washington Post must have sent Obama White House aides rushing for the Maalox. One is about terrorism and the other is about domestic politics. They are related and they are bad news for Barack Obama and his Democrat allies in Congress.

For years, political pundits and prognosticators have obsessed over the "gender gap...

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 -- Steel Yourselves, Foreign Policy Debate, Kudos To Mike Pence

Steel Yourselves

As I mentioned in this morning's appeal, 52% of Americans believe Obama's presidency has been a failure, and 55% believe Obama has done more to divide the country rather than to unite it.

There is more polling data and analysis today predicting a GOP takeover of the Senate. That's...

Victory -- For Now

Facing intense political pressure, President Obama announced over the weekend that he won't issue a unilateral amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants . . . before the election. One commentator said that if Democrats lose the Senate this November, the White House doesn't want to see headlines blaming Obama's amnesty as the reason.

Bush Was Right

The Broken Trumpet

President Obama has made a lot of gaffes lately, especially for someone who has come so far on the strength of his oratorical skills. Last week he said he had no strategy for dealing with the Islamic State -- a remark that left Pentagon officials...

Tuesday, September 2, 2014 -- ISIS Strikes Again, Border Warnings, Jihadi High, Stop The Self-Delusion

BREAKING NEWS: ISIS has released a video purportedly showing the beheading of a second American journalist, Steven Sotloff. The jihadist taunted Obama in this video. In that sense, he is a lot like Putin, who regularly taunts the president while he continues his murderous ways in Ukraine. More and more we are seeing that a foreign policy based on reciting...
