Flashback: Obama Wanted a Nuremberg Trial for Osama

When the most finely trained military/intelligence team in America finally killed Osama bin Laden, MSNBC’s Norah O’Donnell sent an embarrassingly misspelled tweet that informed the world, “Obama shot and killed.” However, MSNBC inadvertently allowed some truth to slip through its reporting of the assassination. The left-wing network quoted “a senior official in the Obama administration” admitting … [Read more...]

The Media Hype: Osama’s Death Means Obama’s Re-Election

After the long-awaited death of Osama bin Laden, the media are finally jubilant – that Barack Obama may get a second term after all.

Why Obama Really Started the Libyan War

Anyone seeking to know why Barack Obama really committed U.S. troops to Libya’s civil war can begin by dismissing virtually everything he said in his speech Monday night out of hand.

Failing “our responsibilities to our fellow human beings...would have been a betrayal of who we are,” he said. “Some nations may … [Read more...]

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

With Islamic riots, skyrocketing deficits, and state-skipping Democratic legislators hogging the headlines, this item has not yet gotten the attention it deserves.

Anti-American Globalists “Defend” U.S. at the UN?

From the moment Barack Obama joined the United Nations Human Rights Council, observers knew an international humiliation was coming. Last Friday, the rogue nations of the world and the left-wing dregs of American society provided it before an international audience in Geneva.

Stupid Defenseless Initiative

MANY COMMENTATORS HAVE WONDERED WHAT CONCESSIONS BARACK OBAMA WRUNG out of the Russian leadership in exchange for canceling a major missile defense initiative in Eastern Europe this week. Some have speculated he attained, or at least sought, cooperation in stifling Iran’s nuclear program.

CNN “Journalist” Calls Obama’s Election a “Benefit” of the Iraq War

On CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 last night, Cooper used the handover of power in Iraq to examine the costs and benefits of the war, an exercise he called “an exercise in raw politics and, of course, human lives.” Cooper introduced Tom Foreman, who presented what seemed, for CNN, a relatively balanced analysis – which caused my senses to tingle like Chris Matthews’ thigh during an Obama … [Read more...]

The New Era of Irresponsibility

Upon hearing that President Obama plans to close Guantanamo Bay within a year, the first thought that occurred to me was: where will terrorists go for their lemon chicken? One detention center librarian has said "a few [detainees] are kind of hooked on" the Harry Potter series; will Obama at least detain them long enough to finish The Deathly Hallows? For that matter, where else will these … [Read more...]
