How (Not) To Lose Egypt To Islamic Fanaticism

Since the riots in Egypt broke out last week, Barack Obama has attempted to hit the snooze button on his 3 a.m. phone call. After much uncertainty about the American position, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak announced today he will step down as president-for-life at the end of his term this September. There is no word on whether this will satisfy the majority of rioters in his country, nor what … [Read more...]

Is Obama’s New Ambassador a Communist “Asset” (Or Just a Racist)?

Before setting off on his sixth vacation of the year in elite Martha's Vineyard, Barack Obama made four recess appointments. Credible sources report the FBI once listed one of them as a Communist "asset." Obama nominated Maria (or "Mari") del Carmen Aponte as ambassador to El Salvador last December, but it was not her first nomination. In 1998, Bill Clinton nominated her ambassador to the … [Read more...]

(Character) Assassination

The source of the Left's outrage. The old definition of a Puritan is a person who is constantly worried that somewhere, someone is having a good time.

“Charitable” Foundations: ATMs for the Left

One of the unlamented developments of this election year is the Democratic Party’s retreat to the Left. Although the media claim the party's voters have learned their lesson by settling for the “electable” John F. Kerry, a cursory examination of the Democrats shows they remain animated by anti-Bush furor. The party rank-and-file may have decided they prefer the sing-song cadences of John … [Read more...]

Teresa Heinz Kerry: Bag Lady for the Radical Left

With Matt Drudge’s recent revelation that John Kerry is as faithful to his second wife as he was to his old Vietnam “brothers,” the senator’s presidential campaign may depend more than ever on the actions of his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry. While the mainstream media have thus far overlooked the alleged infidelity, media outlets have also overlooked a far more important story: The former Mrs. … [Read more...]
