Barry Bars the Door: Christians Have No Escape from Obama’s New, Gay Military

Psychological warfare is a vital component of any war. Breaking the will of the enemy and keeping your own troops motivated may help an unorganized enemy’s victory seem “inevitable,” however one must twist the truth in the process. This makes control of the media, with its ability to distract and redirect the nation’s attention, imperative. Luckily for Barack Obama, he has just this support in his … [Read more...]

Voting Present: Obama Dithered 16 Hours Before Killing Bin Laden

by Ben Johnson The media are salivating that Osama bin Laden's death will seal Barack Obama’s re-election.

The Message We Should Send: Embalm Osama with Pig’s Blood

Osama bin Laden is dead, and as with the death of Iraqi al-Qaeda terror Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, some liberals warn that winning is losing, self-defense is self-defeating, and killing our enemies is minting new “martyrs.” Because of this, we should not have killed Osama, at least not immediately. Since we did, it was our supremest wisdom that we agreed to bury him in accordance with Islamic Shari’a … [Read more...]

Obama Is Secretly Talking With The Taliban, Says It’s What Reagan Would Do

“September the 11th for them was a bad day; for us it was a change of attitude” — President George W. Bush, 2006. Barack Obama has a unique response to terrorist attacks: America can “absorb” them. A new book shows the president exhibits blasé indifference to the prospect of American citizens suffering another 9/11 attack from Islamic terrorists but is highly concerned that he not accept the … [Read more...]

MSNBC: Opposing Obama’s Olympic Push “Rivals Jane Fonda Sitting on a Gun in North Vietnam”

See Big Ed decry conservatives's "lack of patriotism." In the misty past of ten months ago, dissent was patriotic, mass protests were a sign of passionate civic engagement, and the greatest sin any politician could commit was questioning someone’s patriotism.

The Left’s Man at Commerce

AT THEIR BEST, POLITICAL APPOINTMENTS are a function of accomplishment, expertise, or judgment. At their worst, they are the consolation prize of cronyism.
