Later in 2012, during a debate, Obama accused GOP candidate Mitt Romney of stoking Cold War fears against our new friends in Moscow. Obama said, “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because…the Cold War’s been over for 20 years!” In fact, in 2012, the whole pantheon of pantsuit partiersmocked warnings about Russia.

Do we owe Obama an apology?

Imaginations can run wild in the affinity bubble. I was in Washington, DC, over the weekend when it dawned on me that we on the right were probably wrong about Obama’s thirst for dictatorial power. Or maybe we were right, but seven years of near-dictatorial power have exhausted the would-be autocrat. He certain looks worn down, as this Time magazine side-by-side shows: [caption id=“attachment_18520” align=“aligncenter” width=“300”] President Obama in 2009 and again in 2016[/caption] Read more →

The Unbearable Lightness of Being There

Eve: May I ask your name? Chance: Chance. Eve: Chance? Chance: Chance, the gardener. Eve: Chauncey Gardiner? Mr. Chauncey Gardiner. Are you related to Basil and Perdita Gardiner? – Being There, 1979 People tell us who they are, but we ignore it. Because we want them to be what we we want them to be. –Don Draper, Mad Men President Obama used his third Oval Office address in seven years to say “Honey, I shrunk the country. Read more →

Democrats Have Just One Chance for October Surprise

The White House and its corrupt Department of Justice has one chance to change the election’s outcome.According to Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight blog, the GOP has a 62.1 percent chance of a Senate majority. With nine days left until the election, and with President Obama’s approval and likability plunging, the Democrats face a huge loss. Apathetic Democrats Many political observers blame Democrat voter apathy, particularly among African-Americans. The black vote that swelled in 2008 and 2012 with Obama on the ballot shows signs of deflating in 2014 as it did in 2010. Read more →

King Abdullah Kicks Obama Out of Saudia Arabia ? Video Added

You’d think American foreign policy couldn’t sink any lower than standing by while Vladimir Putin re-conquers the Warsaw Pact nations. Then you’ve underestimated Barack Obama’s incompetence. Apparently, Obama didn’t bow low enough to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. Whatever happened, an “intimate” evening planned for Obama and Abdullah was abruptly cancelled after a two-hour meeting between the two leaders. A meeting intended to “mend fences” between the two men. UPDATE: Here’s the video from Lou Dobbs on Fox Business Read more →

What Would You Do If You Were Putin?

You saw Obama stand by as you threatened Georgia in 2009. You heard Obama whisper to Medvedev that he’ll be willing to defy Congress to capitulate to you after Obama’s re-election. You watched Obama and his bumbling Secretary of State mangle its its own strategy in Syria—if the US ever had a Syrian strategy at all. You saw that the US was completely unprepared for your annexation of Crimea. You see the headlines of massive NSA spying on US citizens, though that same NSA was blind to your invasion of Ukraine.
