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.

They are right about that. But as the saying goes, "They ain't seen nothing yet!"

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

Monday, September 8, 2014 -- Victory For Now, Obama's Optics, Boston Jihad, Goodbye Truett

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.

It was really striking when, during his...

Friday, September 5, 2014 -- Bush Was Right, Scandal Update, Join Me In D.C.

Bush Was Right

George W. Bush deserves a tip of the hat. Here's what the "prophet" Bush said in 2007 about the dangers of a premature withdrawal from Iraq:

"I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now. To begin withdrawing before our...

Thursday, September 4, 2014 -- Broken Trumpet, America's Muslim Missionaries, Where Are The Children?

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...

Wednesday, September 3, 2014 -- 9/11 Deja Vu, Encouraging News, Don't Assume Victory

9/11 Déjà Vu

We are learning more about the second American killed last week in Syria fighting for ISIS. Abdirahmaan Muhumed was killed in the same battle as Douglas McAuthur McCain. Muhumed is believed to be part of a group of 15 Somali Americans who have left the country in recent months to fight with ISIS.

According to a local Fox affiliate in the Twin Cities, Muhumed cleaned airplanes...

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...

Thursday, August 28, 2014 -- Putin Strikes, Stark Warnings, Obama Preps Amnesty Defense

Putin Strikes

Putin is tightening his noose around Ukraine. While Russian troops on leave have reinforced flagging separatists in eastern Ukraine, two columns of Russian tanks and armored fighting vehicles invaded southeastern Ukraine and seized a town on the Sea of Azov, creating a second front.

A Ukrainian military spokesman said, "Our border servicemen and guardsmen retreated as they did not have heavy...

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 -- Ceasefire Holding, Jihad In America, Obama To Shame America

Ceasefire Holding

The ceasefire announced yesterday between Israel and Hamas seems to be holding -- for good reason. While Hamas declared victory yesterday, in reality it was increasingly desperate to end the fighting.

Some Israelis are frustrated that Hamas wasn't totally defeated, but the jihadists took a beating. Their terror tunnel complex was exposed and decimated. Top leaders and hundreds of fighters...

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,...
