By John Ruberry Barack Obama's Model United Nations style foreign policy of be-nice-to-rogue-nations-and-they'll-be-nice-to-you is a failure. Five years ago Syria's thug president, Bashar al-Assad, crossed Barack Obama's red line by using chemical weapons against his own people. Obama did not retaliate. Last Tuesday the brute crossed that red line--and on Thursday President Donald J. Trump fired 59 … Continue reading America’s eight-year long vacation from reality is over

Lance: Well, I couldn't risk you running off. I had to say yes. And then I was stuck with a woman who thinks the height of excitement is a new flavour Pringle. Oh, I had to sit there and listen to all that yap yap yap. Oh, Brad and Angelina. Is Posh pregnant? X Factor, … Continue reading The UN/Obama Global Warming Squirrel or the Media’s Prevent Defense
Do you remember Oral Roberts years ago saying he would be "called home"? I thought of that when I saw this story: Humans are living outside their means, depleting natural resources like forests, air and water 50% faster than the planet can renew, according to the 2012 World Wildlife Fund's "Living Planet Report" released this … Continue reading …I’ll believe it’s a Crisis
Here is a story that for some reason hasn't gotten a lot of traction in the debate on "Palestinian" statehood. One of the things you hear the Arab world scream about is the "right of return" that is, the right of Palestinian refugees who neighboring Arab countries have kept in refugee camps for decades as … Continue reading Give (some of them) a state
I hit the Obama administration pretty hard here so I want to acknowledge something they did right today: U.S. diplomats walked out of the U.N. General Assembly Thursday as Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivered a fiercely anti-American speech, attacking the U.S. as an "arrogant power" ruled by greed. Good for the administration, a public rebuke … Continue reading The administration does something right
At Patterico a relevant question has been asked concerning Libya that is not being asked enough concerning president Obama's decision to go to war in Libya. But before we hammer the President too hard, ask yourself a simple question. Is he right, right now? Forget what he said when he represented one of the most … Continue reading Libya: Is it the right thing to do?
Let's see, removing a tyrant dictator with bloodthirsty sons who controls a lot of oil and has been killing his people for years. Yup that sounds like Iraq to me. Can someone explain to me how Morning Joe is going on about that "we might be too late" while advocating an Afghan pullout? I hope … Continue reading It’s only blood for oil if Bush does it
As you know I'm very Roman Catholic. I've argued that "Gay Marriage" is just an exercise in narcissism and have absolutely no problem with the Church's doctrine on homosexuality and I stand by that. However this is simply wrong: Arab and African nations succeeded Tuesday in getting a U.N. General Assembly panel to delete from … Continue reading This is just wrong
We see Thomas Peters, the American Papist finding some holes in a study suggesting that Billy Joel's statement that "Catholic Girls start too late" is wrong. Turns out, that study was ridiculously flawed. In addition to having very serious phrasing and definition issues, turns out that the “study” was based on interviews with only 39 … Continue reading Around the blogroll today 3/12/2010…
the Iranian response: HA ah HA HA HA AH ah HA hA ah HA...(please do not make these demands while we are drinking). I'm with Michael Graham. If the international community couldn't muster the will to hold Qadaffy to his ten minutes you think that they are going to stop Iran from getting Nukes?!?! Mika … Continue reading They will DEMAND from Iran:
As my wife noticed every year I re-read the Guns of August. I think it's very important to not only remember the lessons of Vietnam and World War 2, but the lessons of wars before that. Particularly World War 1 because it came at the end of a long period of general peace between the … Continue reading The key question for the middle east: “Which Troubridge is Israel?”
