Obama’s Advisors—A Solved Mystery
Obama has been widely criticized for ignoring his advisors. This has been attributed to his egotistical belief in his own intellectual superiority. (The fact that this intellectual superiority has yet to be demonstrated is beside the point of this post.)… Read full post »
God, as well as other Osmond observers, knows, I'm no fan of Bill and Hillary Clinton, particularly the latter, but I was sickened by the tastelessness of the now famous New York Post front page.
I have an easy test on matters like this. If something is inspiringly comic, e.g. Stevie… Read full post »
Holder Loses His Grip
The resignation of Eric Holder as U.S. Attorney General is indeed good news. This one-issue ideologue has been beset with scandal after scandal and the country is well rid of him at long last. But every silver cloud has its onyx linings, and before Holder has… Read full post »
Obama Swallows Three Bitter Pills
Obama just didn’t seem quite himself this morning as he stood in front of the helicopter that was to whisk him off to the United Nations in New York. His speech was shorter than any I can recall and was delivered with all the animation… Read full post »
Ayn Rand to the Rescue
Two outrages that are rightfully receiving a lot of attention lately are the ISIS beheadings and the death and injury of Palestinians in Gaza. The former atrocity is in retaliation for air strikes which are killing civilians in Iraq; the latter, a response to rockets… Read full post »
Obama’s Dangerous Concept of Transparency
It seems that tomorrow night (9/10), the eve of the World Trade Center and Benghazi anniversaries, Barack Obama is going to deliver yet another speech presumably designed to harmonize his earlier wafflings on the critical threats posed by ISIS.
Of one… Read full post »
Listen and weep, oh ye misguided Americans who listened to your fellow libs:
It would be nice if anyone seeking to defend the epic errors of the Obama adminis… Read full post »
Thanks to UncleChri, here is the correct YouTube link to a two-minute trailer about my latest novel. Thanks,UncleChrihttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ygFf6ZOtew
This course has two parts.
First, anyone who hires a person who is not in the U.S. legally should face severe fines and penalties. An applicant for employment should be required to present proof of legal status.
Second, those seeking to enter the U.S. should be… Read full post »
Brazil’s World Cup—Not Totally Empty
Brazil awakened on Wednesday with an unwelcome awareness that Tuesday was not a nightmare but, indeed, its very real bad news day. The whole country is in a state of acute depression. It's very sad to see.
As one who always tries to look… Read full post »
Soccer Punched Left and Right
As if there were not enough issues about which to disagree, the left and the right have come up with a jointly held theory about the increasing popularity about soccer/football in the United States. Having agreed on the theory, the left and right then return… Read full post »
Kerry, the Ketchup Konsort, in Kairo
Among the Secretary of State’s muddled missions in visiting Cairo last weekend was to urge the new government there to ease up on the punishment (death sentences) of arguably purely political prisoners supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood and to release out… Read full post »
Not to be outdone by his boss golfing in California on a high priority visit to his daughter while American-trained troops were being slaughtered by terrorists in Iraq, Joe Biden decided to visit Brazil for a World Cup game. He appeared characteristically relaxed perhaps for an additio… Read full post »
Back to Iraq?
Until the latest polls are taken, Obama is taking the courageous, highly principled position that “HE’s” not ruling anything out and that “MY team” is investigating the matter. Waiting for investigations and blatant egocentricity are clearly the hallmarks… Read full post »
Being Unfair to Mrs. Clinton
Attacking Mrs. Clinton for pleading her particular brand of poverty is misguided as a strategic move and, more importantly, on the merits.
The criticism of Obama for his gum chewing during the Normandy memorial services was met with the argument that if that’s the… Read full post »
Why Bowe Bergdahl joined the military is anyone’s guess. After all, ballet and ballistics don’t generally mix although of course many ballet enthusiasts serve their country with “honor and distinction.” Bowe just doesn’t happen to be one of them, Susan Rice&rs… Read full post »
This was intended as a comment to a post I read earlier today. Because I can't find it, I'm making it a new post.
In suggesting, at the end of your unbelievable defense of Obama’s epic lack of judgment in the Bagdahl affair, that we turn to “things that matter,” you… Read full post »
Obama’s Colossal Lack of Judgment
Bowe Bagdahl wasn’t “left behind”; he strayed forward. For all we know from his purported statements and his father’s verified ones, he didn’t much cotton to the U.S. military in particular or the U.S. in general. Ironically, both… Read full post »
If you’re looking for a flunky who can stare a media interrogator squarely in the face and avoid the simplest and most direct question, you simply can’t beat Susan Rice. This Obama punching bag’s appearance before Charlie Rose and Candy Crowley over the weekend made her infamous lie… Read full post »
Shinseki and Carney—Resignations to Remember
The Shinseki “resignation” is an instructive example of how a good man can fail in the wrong job. When Shinseki served in the military—a proper function of government—he shone as the stars on his uniform. When he was transpla… Read full post »
It seems that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is going to be a guest of FOX News on an upcoming broadcast hosted by Bret Baier and Greta von Susteren. One is immediately fascinated by several questions:
1. Who chose and/or insisted on the identity of the interviewer… Read full post »
Will Dems Join the Benghazi Select Committee?
In the memorable words of Secretary Clinton, “What difference, at this point, does it make? The Committee, as constituted to date is the quintessence of a blue ribbon panel even though it’s now totally red in its composition. It will call the… Read full post »
The Nigerian Nightmare—How First Ladies React
Angelina Jolie, the first lady of film, and Michelle Obama, the first lady of the United States, both took to the airwaves to express their views on the vicious kidnapping of Nigerian kids.

Watergate, Lewinsky, and Benghazi—A Comparison of Culpability
One fact is common to all three scandals—all three presidents lied about something.
The difference among the three scandals is what they lied about and why.
Let’s get the easy one out of the way straight away. Clinton… Read full post »
Because of low viewer ratings, Piers Morgan, the rather prissy British import, was recently fired from his prime time TV show on CNN. But before he left, he pompously sought to achieve martyrdom by claiming gun control advocacy as his signature contribution to the civilized world much in the same way… Read full post »
