NILE GARDINER: THE STUNNING DECLINE OF BARACK OBAMA The stunning decline of Barack Obama: 2013. Ten key reasons why the Obama presidency is in meltdown The last few weeks have been among the worst of Barack Obama’s time in office, recalling earlier periods of turmoil for the president in 2010 and 2011, when his ratings also plummeted. In 2013, the situation is […]

THE NEW YORK TIMES:Obama Administration ‘Has Lost All Credibility’ By: Todd Beamon For the second time in as many months, The New York Times on Thursday blasted the Obama administration for its surveillance practices — this time saying that the White House has “now lost all credibility” after reports that it has been collecting the telephone records of millions of Verizon customers. “Mr. […]

JANET LEVY: THE NOT SO VEILED THREAT TO NON MUSLIMS IN TENNESSEE The attempted snow job by the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) of Tennessee which sponsored the joint Department of Justice/FBI event, “Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society,” Tuesday night in Manchester, Tennessee, did not work with the 2,000 attendees. Claims that American Muslims are loyal citizens, partners in counterterrorism investigations, part of radicalization prevention efforts, […]


That day was the beginning of the end for the Nazis. This is what President Roosevelt wrote to the families of those who fell in battle including my husband’s brothers Harold (Heshy) King and George (Gersh) King.

“….He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who died that freedom might live, and grow and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives, in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men.”

Hannah Senesh was a Zionist hero who was captured and tortured in Yugoslavia in 1944 at the age of 23 and died by a Nazi firing squad.

From her poems on heroism:

“There are stars whose radiance is visible on Earth though they have long been extinct. There are people whose brilliance continues to light the world even though they are no longer among the living. These lights are particularly bright when the night is dark. They light the way for humankind.”


Samantha Power’s hubby is Cass Sunstein, a Harvard Law professor, who was an Obama Czar of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. One should really call them “Commiczars.”

The Wall Street Journal wrote about his position thus: “the post wields outsize power. It oversees regulations throughout the government, from the Environmental Protection Agency to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Obama aides have said the job is crucial as the administration overhauls financial-services regulations, attempts to pass universal health care and tries to forge a new approach to controlling emissions of greenhouse gases.””

He left his position in august 2012 to return to teaching.

North Korean Nuclear Missile Game-Changer by JOHN C. WOHLSTETTER As basketball star turned amateur diplomat Dennis Rodman planned a summer vacation with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, North Korea’s direct threat to launch an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) at America’s west coast induced President Obama to order a supplemental deployment of 14 more U.S. Ground-Based Interceptor (GBI) missiles by 2017, for a total […]

EDWARD CLINE: THE STINKING BADGES OF OUR FEDERALES “Badges? We ain’t got no badges. We don’t need no badges! I don’t have to show you any stinking badges!” – Alfonso Bedoya as Gold Hat, the Mexican bandit, to Humphrey Bogart in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948) We are fast approaching the day when men with badges can regularly spy on […]

HERBERT LONDON: DENIAL AND THE OBAMA PRESIDENCY In 1967 Joey Bishop, the celebrated comedian and honorary member of Sinatra’s Rat Pack, starred in a film entitled “A Guide for the Married Man.” Although this is hardly a distinguished movie, one scene was worth the price of admission. The Bishop character is caught by his wife in flagrante with a young woman […]


Remember Benghazi? When al-Qaeda affiliated jihadists murdered a U.S. ambassador on the anniversary of the al-Qaeda jihadist murder of 3000 Americans? When the jihadists killed two ex-Navy Seals, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, when like the Spartans at Thermopylae they valiantly fought against an attack on the CIA annex? Remember how the Obama administration serially lied about the perpetrators of the attack, blaming it on an obscure Internet video, in order to save the president’s triumphalist foreign policy campaign-narrative that al Qaeda had been “rocked back on its heels”?

Apparently many Americans have forgotten, or simply don’t care. A recent poll showed only 24% think that Benghazi is the most important controversy afflicting the Obama administration, while 45% pick the IRS scandal, a particularly egregious example of bad behavior, to be sure, but one common ever since the IRS was created. Perhaps that 45% is concerned on principle over the attempt to use government to limit political expression, but even still, it’s troubling that a political offense is considered more important than the administration’s getting our fellow Americans murdered and then lying in order to cover it up.

Something has happened to this country when we are indifferent to the deaths of brave Americans who have been murdered by our sworn enemies, and blasé about our president and his flunkeys’ lying about that tragedy for political gain. Something is off when we leave unchallenged the lame excuse that the most powerful military in the history of the world armed with the most advanced weapons could not help their comrades because it was decided that a relief force couldn’t “get there in time,” even though no one knew how much time those soldiers had, which in the event was several hours. And we have suffered a colossal failure of patriotic nerve when we are not enraged that whether there was time or not, out forces weren’t ordered to descend on those fanatics and exact a fearsome price in blood for killing Americans. Bill Clinton ran away from Mogadishu in 1993, but at least our soldiers before they left made the enemy pay about 2000 dead for killing 18 Americans.
