What Follows Obama?

One hardly knows how to express anymore the depth of the disaster of the past seven years of Obama. I’ve tried, but am almost at the end of words to describe how he has damaged our country, perhaps irreparably. The main responsibility of our government—with a president leading the way—is to understand the threats we face and protect our liberties. Yet President Obama has gone out of his way to discard basic liberties, especially for Christians whose consciences are being… Read more »

Obama’s Terrorism Legacy

President Obama’s South-of-the-Border tour continues. After going to a baseball game with Raul Castro and having his picture taken in front of a building honoring brutal executioner Che Guevara, and after saying that the only real difference between capitalism and communism is that you simply have to choose what you think will “work” for you, he tripped on down to Argentina. There his most newsworthy event was being filmed dancing the tango. Along the way, he commented on the Brussels… Read more »

Containing Obama

President Obama’s unwillingness to admit he is wrong about Islamic terrorism in general, and ISIS in particular, has reached a new low this week. The attacks in Paris don’t seem to have affected his views at all. Prior to those attacks, he had infamously stated that we have ISIS “contained,” and he refused to alter that statement after Paris. Perhaps we just didn’t understand him. Perhaps this is what he really meant: That’s giving him far too much credit. What’s… Read more »

The Rush to Self-Deception

Everyone who has a blog is probably commenting today on the Paris attacks of last Friday. Although I haven’t superimposed the French flag on my Facebook image (I’m not one for fads of that kind), that doesn’t mean I’m not deeply disturbed over what has occurred. This was another prime example of Islamic terrorism, even if our president stubbornly continues to avoid using that terminology. The attacks in Paris took place at a number of locations at approximately the same… Read more »

A Potential Triple Feature

Let’s return to the amazing story of how an American president, after nearly two years of a terrorist threat in a country that was once stabilized, still hasn’t come up with a “complete strategy” for how to deal with this massive terrorist movement. I see a movie in the works: We wait with bated breath to see how this plot will unfold: And for another coming attraction, we have The Iran Agreement, a tale of intrigue, double-dealing, and incomprehensible foolishness:… Read more »

How the World Sees Obama’s America

I admit to being overwhelmed today. How does anyone write about the continuing dramedy that is the Obama administration and still find the words to adequately describe his Land of Make Believe? Two of his recent statements have thinking people wondering if rationality has left the universe. First, he asserted that on his watch the United States has once again become the most respected country in the world. Reaction from the political cartoonists reflects how the world is responding to… Read more »

Degrading Iraq, not ISIS

I understand debate over whether military involvement in Iraq was advisable. Honest people can disagree over that. But making George Bush into some kind of bloodthirsty dictator is way over the line. He was responding to a threat that was growing in the region, and he took out a dictator who was hoping to rule the entire Middle East. Further, he acted on what was the best intelligence at the time with respect to chemical weapons, and he certainly didn’t… Read more »
