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. However, perhaps most disturbing, the team President Obama sent to “defend” the United States themselves accuse the United … [Read more...]

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. Unfortunately, it appears the president sold out two close allies, rewarded Moscow’s belligerence, and … [Read more...]

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. With Bill Richardson’s appointment as Secretary of Commerce, President-elect Obama veered sharply toward the latter. Although he has little experience in the private sector, Richardson will helm the department most responsible for U.S. business … [Read more...]

A Failed Former President

The only thing more painful than listening to Jimmy Carter lecture President Bush on how to conduct a successful presidency was living through his disastrous attempt to turn his advice into reality. As I noted earlier this week, Carter has channeled his hatred of non-leftists, secular and religious, into a glut of slanders in his new bestseller, Our Endangered Values. He charges his … [Read more...]

On North Korea: Don’t Blame Bush

co-authored with Lt. Col. Gordon Cucullu. Yesterday, North Korea admitted what the world has long known: that it possesses nuclear weapons and announced it was withdrawing from the six-party talks (again). The Democratic Party, curiously following Kim Jong-il's lead, pinned the blame on President George W. Bush's foreign policy -- and called for reviving the failed Clinton-era policies that … [Read more...]

Kerry’s Self-Indictment

During his acceptance speech Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention, John Kerry did something unprecedented for any presidential candidate: he indicted himself. In addition to outlining a dangerously weak foreign policy, Kerry at times appeared to be playing straight man for the Republican Party attack machine. Practically writing the ads the GOP will use against him in the … [Read more...]

The Left’s Dunce of Death

Cartoonist Ted Rall struck again early last week, this time publicly stating that Ronald Reagan is currently in Hell “turning crispy brown right about now.” Rall defended his repugnant treatment of the fallen national hero, saying, “Reagan was a public figure and he was an idiot.” Rall then re-affirmed, “If there is a Hell, this guy is in it.” Rall still had enough invective left over to fill his … [Read more...]

The Left Smears an American Hero

With the body barely cold, the Left has begun demonizing the late Pat Tillman. Tillman is the former NFL star who turned down a $3.6 million contract to join the Army Rangers after 9/11. He was killed last month in Afghanistan after Islamist soldiers ambushed his jeep. (It was later revealed that Tillman was killed by "friendly fire." -- TRW.) For most Americans, such noble service would qualify … [Read more...]

“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...]

Appeasing North Korea: the Clinton Legacy

Democrats have begun a desperate-yet-predictable effort to blame North Korea's nuclear aspirations on President George W. Bush's strident rhetoric.  Despite their leftist cant, they seem remarkably uninterested in the "root causes" of Pyongyang's current nuclear brinksmanship: Bill Clinton's eight years of appeasement and the gullible cordiality of the South Korean government. Threats of a … [Read more...]
