Obama vs. the Founding Fathers

On President Obama’s favorite “news” station, MSNBC, over a week ago, he was interviewed by Chris Matthews on Hardball. Matthews, you might remember, is the one for whom Obama’s election sent a thrill up his leg, which means he is of course a serious, non-biased interviewer who won’t let anyone get away with silly comments. Well, you judge. In the course of that interview, Obama declared, “There actually is probably less war and less violence around the world today than… Read more »

Normalizing Cuba?

President Obama has now met with Raul Castro and begun the normalization of relations process with Cuba, thereby reversing American policy that has been in effect for more than 50 years, ever since the Castro brothers and their chief lieutenant, Che Guevara, ousted what was admittedly a corrupt Cuban government. However, replacing a corrupt government with a totalitarian Marxist regime that routinely rounds up “enemies” of the state and executes them is not an improvement. Allowing the old Soviet Union… Read more »

The President’s Magic Beans

That sort of, kind of beginning of some type of understanding upon which some future agreement might be based—otherwise known as the Iran “deal”—seems to be falling apart, if indeed there ever was anything to fall apart to begin with. It’s as if the Obama administration got a little ahead of itself. No surprise there. They tend to overlook some genuine concerns about dealing with Iran in their haste to achieve something they consider historic. This so-called deal allows Iran… Read more »

The Framework

We now have the beginnings of a possible understanding of a framework for future negotiations about maybe, perhaps, putting some conditions on Iran’s nuclear capabilities. Wow. I feel so much safer now that we have this “framework.” Of course, we never would have gotten this far—made so much progress—without the tough negotiating skills of the Obama administration: Isn’t it great to finally have a chief executive and commander in chief who possesses a deep understanding of our real friends and… Read more »

My Vote of No Confidence

Disagreement about policy is one thing; we can all participate in honest debate about the correct policy to follow. But is there a tipping point at which the policy that is followed becomes a danger to the nation and must be resisted for the sake of our future? Is there a time to question, not only the wisdom, but the motives of our leaders? Case in point: the swap for Bo Bergdahl. We got a deserter; the enemy received back… Read more »

The Iran Fantasy

If you are tired of hearing about Iran and the “deal” now being negotiated with that terrorist nation, I apologize up front. You may now go to another website and revel in recipes, entertainment news, or other such essential topics for your day. Staving off a nuclear attack on America is obviously not something you want to think about. Don’t let it bother you; go ahead and concentrate on what’s really important. For the rest of you, let’s have some… Read more »

Lack of Intelligence Report

The latest intelligence report on terror threats to the country no longer includes either Iran or its minions in Hezbollah on the list of threats. If that seems rather unintelligent to you, don’t think you’re the one failing the intelligence test. What would ever lead our government to come up with this assessment? Could it be because our president wants a “deal” with Iran so badly that he will do anything to show them how nice we are to them?… Read more »
