Cloaked in hypocrisy, Obama redefines “war.”

Albeit this article is two weeks old but you know it’s bad for the liberal establishment when even the New York Times calls out the Obama administration on its horse-manure definition of “war.” Most Americans with the maturity level above fifth grade understand that a member of the U.S. military, carrying a weapon, organizing combat […]

Never forget.

Front pages from 2001 to 2011 tell story of 9/11 decade, from WTC attacks to war on terror and bin Laden’s death

Who’s the JV team, Mr. President?

“The analogy we use around here sometimes and is accurate is if a JV team puts on Laker uniforms, that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.” — President Barack Obama on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), in January. (It’s Lakers, by the way, Mr. President, not Laker). “They are an imminent threat to […]

On Iraq, Obama suddenly shy with his drone attacks.

A play on words, Jonah Goldberg calls the meltdowns in Iraq and Syria the Jihadi Spring. This is the antithesis of the Arab Spring, and the Sunni Islamic extremist group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) have wrought havoc in Syria and have now taken Mosul in Iraq, and setting their ultimate sights on […]

Obama’s Bergdahl Defeat.

Wow. Charles Krauthammer sums up the Bergdahl prisoner swap perfectly. He’s right, complaints about negotiating with terrorists are non-starters and off the mark from the get go, while accusations that the president broke law are ridiculous assuming you’ve ever read Article II — he’s the president, commander-in-chief, and gets a wide latitude of control regarding […]

Snowden story has no good guy.

In a recent newsletter Jim Geraghty made some very good points regarding damaging leaks that Edwin Snowden has made that have nothing to do with being a “whistle blower” or acting in some kind of patriotic civil libertarian fashion. I’ve found myself waffling on Snowden, because he has at a minimum forced a discussion on […]

CIA refutes Senate on enhanced interrogation.

Washington Post: The CIA has completed a report that challenges the findings of a Senate investigation of the agency’s interrogation program, according to U.S. officials who said the response cites errors in the congressional probe and disputes its central conclusion that harsh methods used against al-Qaeda detainees failed to produce significant results. The classified CIA […]

Be wary of the NSA programs.

I wouldn’t say I’ve done a 180-degree turn upon learning that the NSA is capturing yottabytes (or 10 to the 24th power of bytes) of metadata from its citizens, but I’ve definitely done a 90. At some point you either believe in limited government, or you don’t. Last month former Clinton-era adviser David Axelrod spoke […]

Benghazi questions remain, yet information was learned.

When it comes to Benghazi the Democrats and — far more shamefully — the mainstream media stick to two main retorts, writes Guy Benson from TownHall. “That no major questions remain regarding the 9/11 terrorist assault on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya  — and second, that no new information emerged from the whistle-blowers’ hours-long testimony.  […]

On Gitmo, Obama has two faces.

“The idea that we would still maintain forever a group of individuals who have not been tried, that is contrary to who we are. It is contrary to our interests and it needs to stop,” responded President Obama earlier this week to questions regarding terrorist detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. To whom exactly is our […]
