Libya – Clinton’s Biggest Albatross

By 14 Comments 1,493 views

Lest voters forget, the Clinton cheerleading attempts to make a name for herself in an anemic and paralyzed Administration all failed, and no attempt is more revealing of her naivety, and inability to make astute decisions, than the calamity we now know as Libya.  She championed the devastation of Africa’s most successful nation and  stable… Read more »

A few months ago, with his usual hyperbole Donald Trump boasted that he could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and his supporters would still vote for him.

  I could have sworn I heard you say that preventing genocide wasn’t enough for US military presence. Today Barack Obama held a joint press conference with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. At one point he said this: “WITH RESPECT TO LIBYA, I HAVE SAID ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS THAT WE DID THE RIGHT THING IN… Read more »

Obama / Clinton Arab Spring — A Betrayal of Europe and The West

By 20 Comments 4,671 views

The Obama Administration’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood revolutionaries in the Middle East, beginning with deposing Mubarak in Egypt then spreading destabilization to Tunisia, Libya and Syria, ignited an out-of-control fire that has consumed practically all of North Africa and the Middle East.   The inferno still rages and is imposing irreversible consequences on the West….

Was toppling Libya all about the money?

By 6 Comments 2,377 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.

By 24 Comments 1,224 views

Robert Kagan had an excellent piece in the Wall Street Journal a couple of weeks ago. Titled “Power Failure” it discussed the parallels between the aftermath of WW I and today.

Benjamin Franklin is believe to have said it first: “Our Constitution is in actual operation. Everything appears to promise that it will last; but in this world nothing is certain but death and taxes.” We can add another. Nothing is certain but death, taxes and Barack Obama lying. Two years ago I wrote Why you’re… Read more »

Quelle Surprise! Five years of Barack Obama undermining American influence in the world…

The American military is the most powerful in the world. Indeed, we spend more on defense than the rest of the world combined. As one might expect, that amount of military spending translates into a lot of influence around the world, far beyond the bases in Germany or the battlefields of Afghanistan.

Some unsolicited advice to Barack Obama on Syria

By 24 Comments 853 views

NOTE: This piece was written before John Kerry trotted out his imbecilic “unbelievably small” comments and Vladimir Putin offered The One a fig leaf. The advice herein remains the same, only the timetable might change… What happens when a majority of voters elect an unqualified hack as the head of state? Lots of bad choices… Read more »
