Domine, non sum dignus

Kids Are Back in School And Jihadists Are Killing Again

If you thought the government never made a mistake, this story might surprise (via Breitbart) WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government has mistakenly granted citizenship to at least 858 immigrants who had pending deportation orders from countries of concern to national security or with high rates of immigration fraud, according to an internal Homeland Security audit released Monday. The Homeland Security Department’s inspector general found that the immigrants used different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship with U. Read more →

Make Jake Tapper Great Again

I am making an honest man out of Jake Tapper. This twitter thread tells it all. @whennessy i never made an issue of Trump’s use of the word bomb. so the whole premise of this is nonsense. — Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) September 18, 2016 The controversy began when Hillary Clinton attacked Donald Trump for calling terrorist bombings in New Jersey and New York “bombs.” But in the same interview, Hillary called the bombings “bombing,” making her look like an idiot.

It’s Been a Great Month for ISIS

If you’re football team, you’re measured by games won. If you’re a computer company, you’re measured by products shipped. If you’re and international terrorist organization, you’re measured by mayhem created. Let’s face it, ISIS is on a roll. What a week! Nearly 200 murders across three countries on two continents. Not bad for a JV team, huh? Let’s look at the week: * Istanbul Airport: 45 murdered, 52 hospitalized. * Bangladesh Bakery: 20 murdered, 13 escaped. Read more →

How to Feel Safe from Terrorism

Think about the word “news.” In a moment, I’m going to ask you more questions about the news. Before that, though, you probably heard about the terrible terrorist attack in Istanbul, Turkey. Dozens killed, scores injured. “It was like hell,” one witness recalled. Where did you get news of this latest terrorist attack? Facebook? Television? Radio? Do you remember what you were doing when you heard the news? Take a moment to think back to when you first heard the news. Read more →

The Only Rule of Engagement Will Be Victory

Guest Post by Lee Presser When FDR sent the troops to fight World War 2, he sent them to win. Since 1945, the political class has not given America’s military that clear instruction when being sent to war. Political considerations have modified the goal of winning. In Korea, it was fight but do not anger the Chinese. In Viet Nam, it was fight but do not attack the enemy if they are standing on the other side of line drawn on a map.

Do You Fund A Terrorist Network?

According to the FBI: Domestic terrorism is the unlawful use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual based and operating entirely within the United States or Puerto Rico without foreign direction committed against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof in furtherance of political or social objectives. (source) In Michigan, union protesters physically assaulted Steven Crowder of Fox News, then destroyed a tent belonging to Americans for Prosperity (video below). Read more →

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 the Obama Administration. Barack Obama campaigned on a promise to clip America’s wings. I know he didn’t use that term, but it was clear what he meant when he visited the Mediterranean and Germany. Read more →

Obama to America: F**k You!

Bill Clinton began his presidency in a recession, promising to make a middle class tax cut and more jobs his laser-beam focus. But first, he let gays into the military and sent his wife off to socialize medicine. Barack Obama began his presidency during a borderline depression, promising to save the country from economic collapse, lowering the seas, and scripting quality endings to Stephen King’s movies. But first, he symbolically flipped off everyone affected by Islamofascist terrorists,snubbed military heroes, andredifined ethics as the way one behaves when the whole world’s watching. Read more →

Democrats Favor Terrorists Over Constituents

I hyperbolize now and then, but not this time. Democrats in the House and Senate voted to encourage criminal prosecution of Americans who report suspicious activity (Gateway Pundit). Do you know how difficult it is to formulate a more dramatic representation of that fact than the fact itself (Discerning Texan)? I hate Democrats. Yeah, I know, you’re not supposed to “hate” anyone. But Democrats are anti-American ass hats. They breed socialism. Read more →
