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. For instance, Obama claimed he initiated this military action for humanitarian reasons. Failing “our responsibilities to our fellow human beings...would have been a betrayal of who we are,” he said. “Some nations may … [Read more...]

Video of the Day: Obama Ally Could be Tried for Treason

Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson carried the nuclear football for President Bill Clinton and most recently authored the new book Conduct Unbecoming: How Barack Obama Is Destroying the Military and Endangering Our Security. He told NewsMax magazine that Obama fundraiser Jodie Evans had delivered more than $600,000 in cash and supplies to “the other side” in Fallujah during the Iraq war. Buzz has … [Read more...]

Obama Condemns Everyone – Except Terrorists

This weekend, President Obama pulled a John Kerry. First, he supported building the Ground Zero mosque. Then, trying desperately to distance himself from his own words, he claimed he was only dealing with the vague constitutional generalities of the case. He implausibly insisted: My intention was to simply let people know what I thought, which was that in this country we treat everyone … [Read more...]

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...]

Undersecretary of Naivete

Five months into the Obama administration, its chief export seems to be confidence, generously doled out to hostile nuclear regimes. Pleas for dialogue and understanding have yielded North Korean belligerence and Iranian defiance. President Obama’s nomination of Rep. Ellen Tauscher as Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security will exacerbate rogue states’ worst behavior … [Read more...]

Saddam’s Salesmen

“If being used means that we’re highlighting the suffering of Iraqi children, or any children, then yes, we don’t mind being used.” – Rep. James McDermott, D-WA, on his 2002 trip to Iraq, financed by Saddam Hussein. We’ve long contended the terrorists could not buy better representation than the Democratic Left gives them for free. We never knew how right we were. The media revealed last night … [Read more...]

Soros Underwrites Osama’s Talking Points

THE MEDIA REVEALED THIS WEEK THAT THE LEFT IS literally “invested” in Osama bin Laden’s message. On Sunday, news outlets reported that far-Left billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Institute provided roughly half the funding of a study that accused the United States and its allies of killing 650,000 Iraqis over the last three years. When the report first surfaced shortly before the … [Read more...]

Associated Prevaricators

A RECENT ASSOCIATED PRESS STORY SO THOROUGHLY TWISTED THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE to present the opposite of reality, Bill Clinton might be writing its headlines. On Saturday, the AP ran a story with the depressing banner, “U.S. March toll nearly twice Iraq forces.” In it, AP writer Steven R. Hurst asserted, “The U.S. military death toll in March, the first full month of the security crackdown, … [Read more...]

Associated Propaganda Press

WHO IS THE BIGGER MURDERER: GEORGE W. BUSH OR OSAMA bin Laden? For the Associated Press, the scales are tipping in favor of our commander-in-chief. The world’s most widely syndicated news service made the oblique, unflattering comparison yesterday in a story headlined “U.S. Deaths in Iraq Exceed 9/11 Count.” The AP reported with bated breath: The U.S. military death toll in Iraq has … [Read more...]

DeathPAC

Michael Schiavo became infamous as the man who pulled the plug on his ex-wife; now he’s trying to elect politicians who will do the same thing to Iraq. The vehicle of his left-wing political ambitions is “TerriPAC,” a political action committee he formed to retaliate against anyone who tried to keep Terri Schindler Schiavo alive. In a fit of hubris, he named it after his late wife, whom he had … [Read more...]
