Why Does the President Want Us to Buy More Oil From A Crazy Man?

Why Does the President Want Us to Buy More Oil From A Crazy Man?

I used to love the Weekly World News. I never minded handing over a couple bucks to learn where Bat Boy had landed to fight the Islamists or the latest “Dick Cheney is a Robot” story. Nearly every page entertained me and, since I’m already a fan of weird fiction, I could imagine a story […]

Just Remember, Vladimir Putin is Not Our Friend

Just Remember, Vladimir Putin is Not Our Friend

Thanks to this link from Professor Reynolds we are reminded that even though the Cold War is over, Vladimir Putin does not deserve out trust. It seems that some things never change. A few moments ago, this breaking story came in from the website of the New York Times. It seems, as this early report […]

Gore Vidal is Still a Self-Important Punk

I was going to write a long and vituperative response to this Gore Vidal interview in which he pulls his skirts up around his knocking knees and squeals about the United States becoming a military dictatorship because we’re all ignorant hicks, but I believe I’ll answer his puling by adapting one of my favorite quotes […]

So, Where is “Espionage Against America” in the ACLU’s Mission Statement?

I really, really hope it’s not true that the ACLU has hired people to take pictures of covert CIA agents and showing them to Gitmo detainees. This isn’t a case of photographers waiting outside Gitmo with huge telephoto lenses like a bunch of UFO hunters outside Area 51. In some cases, the ACLU’s people took […]

I honestly don’t care whether Iran is developing a nuclear weapon or not. My opposition to the tyrannical Mullahs is based solely in the belief that civilized human beings must not, under any curcumstances, allow evil to continue unabated. Make no mistake, the regime in Tehran is wholly and thoroughly evil. Do you want proof? […]

Is Our New Foreign Policy Really “Do The Opposite of Bush”?

Is Our New Foreign Policy Really “Do The Opposite of Bush”?

| June 30, 2009 | 1 Reply

If the Obama administration has a coherent foreign policy, the theme seems to be “Do the Opposite of George Bush”. Since the Bush foreign policy was heavy on denouncing tyrants and strongmen and long on promoting democracy on multiple fronts and in multiple ways, undoing that will necessarily mean cozying up to folks like Mad […]

Today, a white supremacist and anti-Semite named James von Brunn, walked into the lobby of the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, pulled out a gun, and started shooting. He mortally wounded a guard before the other armed security guards shot him in the head and neck, killing him. The murdered guard’s name was Stephen Tyrone […]

Mark Steyn on the most under-reported story of the week. What does a nuclear madman have to do to get America’s attention? On Memorial Day, the North Koreans detonated “an underground atomic device many times more powerful than the bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki,” as my old colleagues at the Irish Times put it.

President Obama’s bro-shake buddy is up to more deviltry. A fresh round of expropriations in Venezuela has raised fears that the Opec producer’s already declining oil output could sink to its lowest level in the past 20 years. Troops were mobilised over the weekend to assist Venezuela’s state-owned oil company, PDVSA, in seizing the assets […]
