Backups & Blackberries

There may be a breakthrough concerning the IRS Tea Party targeting scandal. Judicial Watch, which is currently engaged in a legal battle with the IRS, is claiming that Lois Lerner's emails are not missing.

In a statement yesterday afternoon, the organization said that IRS attorneys acknowledged Friday that "Lois Lerner's emails, indeed all government computer...

Monday, August 25, 2014 -- Hillary The Hawk, A Disciple of Death, Britain's Fifth Column, Immigration Scrambles Politics

Hillary The Hawk?

There were a lot of reminders last week about the brutal reality of the world we live in. Beheadings. Crucifixions. Threats against major U.S. cities. Unfortunately, it is not at all clear that the images and drama had any impact on the neo-isolationism of the Paul family.

Even after a month of seeing ISIS murdering Christians and other religious minorities,...

More Warnings On ISIS

Military and political leaders are ratcheting up their warnings regarding the threat America faces from the jihadists of ISIS. For example:

·  During a Pentagon press briefing yesterday, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said:

"ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They're beyond just a terrorist group. They...

Thursday, August 21, 2014 -- ISIS & The 21st Century, Israel & Hamas, Bless You

Neville Chamberlain Meets ISIS

President Obama interrupted his Martha's Vineyard vacation yesterday to address the beheading of American journalist James Foley. Obama mustered all the outrage and anger he is apparently capable of.

Obama rushed back to the golf course after making his brief statement, seemingly more concerned about the head of his driver than the head of Mr. Foley. In contrast, British Prime...

Hamas Breaks Ceasefire Again

The latest truce between Israel and Hamas unraveled yesterday after talks in Cairo failed to resolve one of the major issues -- Hamas' demand for open airports and seaports, which Israel will not agree to unless Gaza is demilitarized. The reason should be obvious to anyone. A completely open airport and seaport will mean more weapons from Iran pouring into Gaza,...

Tuesday, August 19, 2014 -- The Violent Left, ISIS Here, Fighting For Our Values

Violent Left Descends On Ferguson

During the violence last night in Ferguson, two things -- one disturbing and one hopeful -- became apparent. Nearly three dozen people were arrested, and it is clear that outsiders are streaming into Ferguson to perpetuate the violence and create chaos.

The Washington Post writes that many people have "arrived by bus and by car from Chicago, Detroit, Brooklyn and elsewhere...

Ferguson In Flames

Beyond a critique of Obama's comments on press freedom, I have avoided commenting on the turmoil in Ferguson, Missouri, sparked by the death of 18 year-old Michael Brown. The first thing that should be obvious but is being widely ignored is that many of the people who are publicly commenting on the case...

BREAKING NEWS: There are unconfirmed reports of renewed fighting in Ukraine, potentially involving a direct engagement between Russian and Ukrainian military forces. Watch for additional developments over the weekend. Thugs around the world, from Putin to ISIS, are on the march as they see America in retreat.

"Obama Calls For Calm, Then Golfs"

Rhetoric vs. Reality

Late yesterday the Pentagon announced that observers on the ground determined that the crisis on Mt. Sinjar had eased, making a planned rescue operation "far less likely." (I wish I could say the same about America under Obama. Somebody please rescue us!)

Obama went on TV a few hours ago to pat himself on the back for easing the crisis. But a more accurate description would...

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 -- Quo Vadis, Barack, Pastors Speak Up, Kudos To Trent Franks

Quo Vadis, Barack?

For those not familiar with Latin, the phrase means, "Where are you going"? The president of the United States is often referred to as the leader of the free world. But neither our friends nor our foes know where he will lead us next, other than into a deeper hole.

Earlier in the week, NBC's Chuck Todd said, "I've been trying to figure out [Obama's] doctrine...
