When the United States officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reactions around the world were pretty much what everyone expected. Anti-Israel activists were up in arms from San Francisco to the EU. Muslim countries protested. Violence broke out in Israel. Mild objections came from some of our allies, including Saudi Arabia. One of … Continue reading Will Israeli-Palestinian peace be brokered by Saudi Arabia?
There were two trials recently for two men who were each accused of genocidal war crimes. The men were on opposite sides of a conflict. One man was sentenced to life in prison, one man will serve no time at all and is free to live his life however he pleases. One man massacred thousands … Continue reading A Tale of Two War Criminals
A few days ago amid reports that there was cooperation between Israel and Saudi Arabia the kingdom felt compelled to make the following statement Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir on Moday denied any ties between the kingdom and Israel. “There are no relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel,” Jubeir told Egypt’s CBC television, according … Continue reading Israel, ISIS and A Tale of Two Mosques
The State Sponsor of Terror List needs more teeth. In its current form, the list only leverages three elements of national power (diplomatic, informational, and economic). It is time to discuss changing this reality by adding the fourth and final element of national power. On November 2nd the State Department failed to meet a congressional … Continue reading Deterring State Sponsored Terrorism
There has been a real debate on if foreign born Terrorist Sayfullo Saipovv should be sent to Gitmo or not. The debate has been interesting because you have the sight of John McCain and Lindsey Graham, favorites of Democrats and the left, reminding said leftists why they are still republicans, namely they are in favor … Continue reading President Trump should Take General Benjamin Butler’s Advice on Sayfullo Saipov and Gitmo
Another day, another terror attack by a Muslim screaming Allahu Akhbar and another batch of media stories about that fabled Muslim Backlash that like global warming putting US coastal cities underwater never seems to happen. Ahmad's question was answered. My biggest concern is that he's readily identified as a Muslim and then that is extrapolated … Continue reading Muslim American Will Benefit the Most From Donald Trump’s “Extreme Vetting”
One of the things about the MSM is they have professional editors with years of experience in the News Business. Because of this we are often told that this gives them the edge in promoting newsworthy stories that the public needs to know. Now I'll concede that I'm just a poor blogger with a few … Continue reading “ISIS Fighters Surrender En Masse” Not Newsworthy in Trump Era
It's unlikely that President Trump will certify that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear deal signed by his predecessor, which means Congress will be able to impose new sanctions on the Islamic state. Iran has now threatened to attack any American bases within a 2,000 km range if we impose these sanctions. These shouldn't … Continue reading Iran’s latest threats must be taken seriously
by baldilocks Back in May, I said this. When we think of lies, we tend to think of them as linear one-dimensional, straight-out falsehoods: 2+2=57, for example—a thing so outrageously false as to be laughable. And this. The Devil is building his multi-dimensional kingdom of lies—in counterpoint to the Kingdom of God. And in imitation … Continue reading Pouring the Concrete for Marxism’s Earthly Foundation
by baldilocks Gaddafi and Hussein are dead. It’s said that North Korea's Kim Jong Un doesn’t want to give up his nukes because of what happened to Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi. After the US invaded Iraq, which resulted in the deposition and execution of Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi gave up his country’s nukes, only to be abandoned … Continue reading Tangled Web of Dictators With Nukes
For the last two weeks the media's meme on the North Korean issue was a story of spectacle. We had the spectacle of North Korea making belligerent threats against the United States and specifically targeting the US territory of Guam and the spectacle of the media going after the Trump administration on North Korea and … Continue reading Trump vs North Korea & China: The Strong Horse Rides Again!
This guy, H.R. McMaster, the National Security Adviser, is an islamocoddling anti-Trump leftist sympathizer, at the very least, who is a deep state enabler, backstabber, and a leaker. He is disloyal as well as possibly treasonous. He has got to go! McNasty apparently opposes everything President Donald Trump stands for in areas of national security … Continue reading #FireMcMaster – Preferably Out of a Cannon and Over Open Water
by baldilocks Filling in for Fausta. When we last talked about public atheist Richard Dawkins, he was being ‘de-platformed’ by Pacifica Radio’s KPFA. In contrast, Dawkins spoke last week at the International Conference on Freedom of Conscience and Expression in London, where he received a standing ovation and an award. This conference’s purpose is [to] discuss … Continue reading Atheists in London are Braver Than American Ones
by baldilocks Sometimes it’s necessary to remind people of how long I’ve been paying attention to politics/world events and that said events do not just occur out of the blue. The following is from thirteen years ago, edited and altered because my commentary was originally directed at then-presidential candidate John Kerry, because some links are … Continue reading The Missiles of Big, Little, and Littler Kim
by baldilocks Filling in for the illustrious Fausta, who will return next week. Today, President Trump announced that the US military will revert to its former policy of barring transsexuals from entering the military. As we recall, it was Former President Obama who changed the long-standing ban on transsexual military service. As I posted this … Continue reading Hot News Flash: Life is Unfair
