False Flag or Not

The contemporary term false flag describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way that activities appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them. [Wikipedia] Think of a time when you acted on false information. You knew it might be false, but you acted as if it was true. Why did you do that? Read more →

What Do I Mean By “Narrative”

“I don’t agree.” Some folks disagreed with my instant assessment of the Syrian strike. My assessment: Trump’s surprise military attack will shift four narratives in Trump’s favor: * Trump is Hitler: dead * Trump is a Russian agent: dead * Trump is incompetent: dying * Trump is a lightweight among world leaders: dead In other words, it took 59 cruise missiles to blow up the left’s anti-Trump narratives.

Trump Launched 59 Cruise Missiles at Leftist Narratives

No child of God should ever suffer such horror. —President Donald J. Trump The most powerful weapon in the world is narrative. The most powerful weapon in the world is narrative. That’s another way of saying the pen is mightier than the sword. The most powerful weapon in the world is narrative. Tonight, President Trump blew up four narratives of the left. And he made America great again in the world. Read more →

Our military leaders are no Pattons

Yesterday, Lee Presser made a great point in this guest post, The Only Rule of Engagement Will Be Victory. As one commenter noted: This is the best analysis of the war on terror that I have read. If we do not fight to win, we shouldn’t be in the fight. Winning the war on terror starts with 1) admitting there is a war on terror, 2) being willing to confront the enemy with force, 3) fighting to win the war rather than appease the enemy, and 4) do whatever it takes to protect Americans and their homeland.

Have You Noticed How Political Lines Are Blurring?

Over the years I’ve said and written nasty things about liberals. Liberals, progressives, lefties, whatever the name. And I’ve defended conservatives—blindly at times. I’ve publicly defended policies I privately considered stupid. All in the name of advancing my agenda. I believed—and still believe—the liberty agenda is the best one. The only one for people live out the full potential of their lives, to own their own lives, and to leave the world better than they found it. Read more →

Am I Crazy If I Don’t Believe the President?

John McCain and John Boehner believe him. John Kerry believes him. Nancy Pelosi, too. But I don’t. I don’t believe the US has irrefutable, indisputable proof that the Syrian government intentionally killed 1,500 people with sarin gas. I don’t believe it. Not yet. And neither does Yossef Bodansky. You’re probably thinking “this Bodansky guy’s some conspiracy kook, too.” Here’s Bodansky’s Wikipedia header: Yossef Bodansky (born in Israel) is an Israeli-Americanpolitical scientist who served as Director of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare of the US House of Representatives from 1988 to 2004.

Obama’s Little Mind on Foreign Policy

Barack Obama proves he would be a dangerous commander-in-chief. Two weeks ago, he told us that the United States is obliged to stay out of wars, even to prevent genocide. He would not have fought Germany in World War II unless Germany attacked the United States. He would not stop the genocide in Darfur or Congo. He would not have gone to Somalia or Bosnia. That, again, was two weeks ago. Read more →
