  Barack Obama once famously dismissed ISIS (or ISIL if you will) as the JV: “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant. I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a… Read more »

“Despotism is the proper government for them”

By No Comments 590 views

In 1824, a political gladhander, liar, narcissist, military general, self-proclaimed hero and dictator, made the following statement about the people of Mexico, “A hundred years to come my people will not be fit for liberty. They do not know what it is, unenlightened as they are, and under the influence of a Catholic clergy, a despotism is the proper government for them, but there is no reason why it should not be a wise and virtuous one.”

By 5 Comments 1,157 views

Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama referred to ISIS as “jayvee” (“junior varsity”) in January 2014. Then in September 2014, he said about ISIS in Syria: “We don’t have a strategy yet.” ISIS just took Rahmadi, and continued east, attacking the town of Khaldiya and breaking the Iraqi government’s line of defense in Husayba, about 20… Read more »

By 4 Comments 959 views

In 2011 Barack Obama led from behind a NATO coalition bent on removing Moammar Gaddafi from power in Libya. The removal and death of Gaddafi was, Obama put it, a warning to “iron fisted” rulers everywhere. Syria, Iran and North Korea excepted, of course.
