Take a “Trip” to Tehran to Help Iran

Take a “Trip” to Tehran to Help Iran

If you’re looking for a simple way you can give a small bit of assistance to the Iranian protesters, here’s an idea I’ve seen making its way around Twitter. If you use Twitter, set your location to Tehran & your time zone to GMT +3.30. Iranian security forces are hunting for bloggers using location/timezone searches. […]

Any chance of someone getting this CNN interview excerpt over to the President? Mohammad: Excuse me, sir. I have a message for the international community. Would you please let me tell it? Roberts: Yes, go ahead. Mohammad: Americans, European Union, international community, this government is not definitely — is definitely not elected by the majority […]

Neocons, Jews, and Revolutionaries. Oh, My!

At some point in the last couple of years, the word “neocon” changed meaning for the left. It used to mean “member of a shadowy Jewish cabal that secretly runs the United States for Jewish purposes *wink wink*“. Now, it just seems to mean any foreign policy the leftist using it doesn’t like. And, oh […]

Despite Murder and Brutality, They Still March in Iran

Despite Murder and Brutality, They Still March in Iran

I’ve been watching what has been happening to the people of Iran this weekend and it hurts my heart. I get that that tyranny won’t unclench its fist unless it’s forced to do so and that doing so has a dear cost. Freedom certainly is not free; in fact, it is very expensive to attain. […]

I’m afraid it may be Iran-heavy around here for the next couple of days. I don’t apologize for that, but I’ll understand if you head off for more varied climes for a couple few days. See, freedom is a big deal to me. It is the only thing of value we can pass on to […]

Here is President Obama’s statement on the ongoing bloody oppression of the Iranian people. PRESIDENT OBAMA: Obviously all of us have been watching the news from Iran.

President Obama’s Terrorist-Fighting FAIL

I’m having a difficult time figuring out how, exactly, the Obama administration figures that exporting Islamic terrorists to the island of Palau is a successful way to fight terrorism. It seems to me that detaining highly-radicalized trained terrorists, fattening them up on halal victuals and giving them top-shelf health care, then turning them loose on […]

I really, really hope this isn’t happening. …[T]he Obama Justice Department has quietly ordered FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high value detainees captured and held at U.S. detention facilities in Afghanistan, according a senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee. “The administration has decided to change the focus to law enforcement. Here’s the […]

How the President Betrayed Muslim Women

Welcome to the “Muslim World”. Let’s pause right there: It’s interesting how easily the words “the Muslim world” roll off the tongues of liberal secular progressives who’d choke on any equivalent reference to “the Christian world.” When such hyper-alert policemen of the perimeter between church and state endorse the former but not the latter, they’re […]

So much for “smart diplomacy”, unless we’re now defining the term to mean “diplomacy conducted by wealthy campaign contributors instead of experienced diplomats” . I’m not saying here that our President is the first to pay off big contributors with ambassadorships. The practice of quid pro quo has a long and sordid history in government. […]
