One of America’s Finest Moments

Over 6,000 American and 10,000 allied warriors gave their lives as a result of Bin Laden’s evil. These nn addition to the 3,000 who died 9/11 and the tens of thousands of others who’ve died at Bin Laden’s hand. Since Ollie North’s testimony to Congress during the Iran-Contra Hearings in the Reagan Administration, we’ve been …

American Idiots

Those who blindly cheer for the fall of Mubarak and the rise of anything else in Egypt are the same as those who cheered the fall of the Shah in Iran.  Question their motives. The Great One, Mark Levin, tweeted attention to this post about an email from Salim Mansur to Claire Berlinski. The email’s …

Waning US Influence

Pro-Western governments in these countries have fallen to anti-American forces or diminished their support for the US since Barack Obama became president. Lebanon Jordan Yemen Qatar Egypt Turkey Obama’s campaign promise to restore respect for America around the world is a joke.  A cruel and dangerous joke.  Our enemies see Obama’s weakness as American weakness. …

Forcing Functions

An old boss of mine liked “forcing functions.”  Forced us to meet delivery dates, while arbitrary dates tended to cause a “so what” attitude toward deadlines.  Forcing functions like trade shows, magazine reviews, and client launches forced development teams to ship, no matter what. Keep that in mind for a moment while we look at …

Obama’s Incompetence Leaves Americans At Risk

It took almost three years of Jimmy Carter’s dangerously naive worldview before the world rushed in. By “rushed in,” I mean the Soviet Union rushed into Afghanistan, Iranian radicals rushed into the US Embassy in Tehran, and Cuban-backed communists rushed into every Central and South American country they could. These aggressions resulted from a world …

America’s Survival Is In Your Hands

Are you as amazed as I am at how quickly our country has descended into something resembling an oversized banana republic?  Consider: Gangs of thugs freely harass and intimidate AIG employees out of murderous envy The Obama administration announced its willingness to abandon the US dollar as the international reserve currency The administration shows no …

Yes, Obama and his secretaries really are idiots

The new Secretary of Homeland Security has replaced the word “terrorism” with “man-caused disasters.” I did not use the word “terrorism,” I referred to “man-caused” disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks …

Obama invites enemies to our gates

Since Barack Obama’s inauguration, America’s enemies have achieved gains that should frighten everyone: Russia reportedly will deploy strategic bombers to Cuba and Venezuela.  For the first time, Russia can strike American cities from advanced positions without a carrier battle group.  North Korea will soon test-fire a ballistic missile under the thin veil of “satellite” test …
