Putting Politics Over Public Safety

by

An ominous pattern has been developing, particularly of late:  The Obama administration seems determined to subordinate public safety to political expediency.  If a course-correction is not effected promptly, the result is predictable.  Americans will be needlessly harmed, and perhaps killed. The most recent and obvious example was the release last week of hundreds of reportedly […]

Al Gore - Current TV

Al Gore Profits from the Stealth Jihad

by

Let’s call it Al Goreera.  That seems a fitting title for the new network that former Vice President Al Gore is launching with the jihadists’ favorite television outlet: Al Jazeera.  The effect will be to create vast new opportunities for our enemies to propagandize the American people, a key ingredient of their “civilization jihad” against […]

The Post-Constitutional President

by

Team Obama insists that next month’s presidential election is “a choice, not a referendum.”  It sure seems to be with respect to the two candidates very different views on the Constitution.  Mitt Romney makes plain at every turn his commitment to that document, while Barack Obama’s conduct in office has marked him as the post-constitutional […]

Conservatives for Shariah

by

The rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and elsewhere in the Middle East has caused many Americans to reflect on that group’s stated ambition to impose worldwide the totalitarian,supremacist Islamic doctrine known as shariah.  Particularly unsettling is evidence of the group’s goal in America, namely of “destroying Western civilization from within,” as documented in […]

Losing the Jihadists’ War on America

by

Have you ever asked yourself why, despite more than ten years of efforts – involving, among other things, the loss of thousands of lives in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, well-over a trillion dollars spent, countless man-years wasted waiting in airport security lines and endless efforts to ensure that no offense is given to seemingly […]

The Political Compromise of Our Security

by

A troubling pattern of putting U.S. and allied security interests second to the Obama administration’s political priorities is now well-established.  If allowed to continue, it will not only make the world more dangerous.  It is going to get people killed – probably in large numbers and some of them may be Americans. A prime example […]

American Laws for American Courts

by

Shortly before Newt Gingrich’s decisive victory in South Carolina last week, he was asked a critical question by a Palmetto State voter:  Would he support a Muslim candidate for president?  The former Speaker of the House answered in a way that was both characteristically insightful and profoundly helpful with respect to one of the most […]

A Predictable Fiasco

A Predictable Fiasco

by

The Egyptian elections have resulted in a rout for the throngs whose springtime hopes for freedom are now facing the prospect of a nuclear winter at the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood and its fellow Salafists.  These Islamists appear to have garnered 60% of the seats in the next parliament and the opportunity to shape […]

The Not-So-Pacific Pacific

by

Suddenly, it seems, President Obama is all about the Pacific. As he put it at a weekend summit of the region’s leaders in Hawaii, “The United States is a Pacific power and we are here to stay.” Unfortunately, thus far in his presidency, Mr. Obama has caused many of his guests to see America as […]

The Enemy is Inside the Wire

by

What would have happened if, during the Cold War, Soviet intelligence had been responsible for training Americans charged with countering communist aggression?  Surely, we would not have defeated the USSR. Perhaps, instead, Kruschev’s boast that his nation would dance on our graves would have been realized. It should, therefore, be profoundly alarming that, today, the […]

Putin’s Reset

by

To the uninitiated, Vladimir Putin has seemingly just undertaken what President Obama might call a “reset” of the Russian political landscape. In fact, the prime minister’s announcement Saturday that he would swap offices with the current president, Dmitry Medvedev, just clarifies an abiding reality:  There is not, and since at least 2000 never has been, […]

Where Are We, Ten Years After 9/11?

by

So, where are we ten years after 9/11?  It is comforting that we have been blessed with a near-unbroken decade without further mass-casualty attacks since those that killed nearly 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001.  Unfortunately, our government is pursuing policies that can only encourage those who aspire to do us harm to redouble their […]

Rollback the Muslim Brotherhood

Rollback the Muslim Brotherhood

by

In recent weeks, we have been put on notice repeatedly:  Absent a fundamental course correction, America will go the way of Europe and others before it, succumbing to an insidious totalitarian doctrine known as shariah whose purpose, in the words of its prime practitioners — the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) — is to “destroy Western civilization from within.” […]

A Warning From Norway

A Warning From Norway

by

Almost lost in official Washington’s preoccupation with the partisan slug-fest over raising the debt ceiling and reducing the deficit was the despicable, murderous attack in Norway on Friday.  Unfortunately, such inattention increases the likelihood that the wrong lessons will be learned from the mayhem – and a proper response to the mayhem inflicted upon that […]

Freeing Al Qaeda?

by

Just when you thought it was not possible for the Holder Justice Department to become any more hostile to the national and homeland security interests of the American people, along comes yet another travesty.  This one threatens both, as it apparently would involve turning loose in America a convicted terrorist known to be a top […]

Energy Freedom Now

by

Mark Twain is usually credited with the quip that “Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.”  The same is certainly true of our dependence on foreign, and often unfriendly, sources of energy – particularly when gas prices soar and every American feels the pinch. The difference, of course, is that we […]

Obama's Legacy

Obama’s Legacy

by

For some time, the outlines of an Obama Doctrine have been apparent.  It can be summarized in nine damning words:  Embolden our enemies.  Undermine our friends.  Diminish our country.  These days, it is hard to avoid proof that these outcomes are not inadvertent, or attributable to sheer and sustained incompetence.  Rather, they are a product […]

Will the GOP Pull a ‘Pelosi’ on Patent Rights?

by

Remember how you felt when Nancy Pelosi told us that we would know what was in the Obamacare bill after it had been passed by the House of Representatives? For a lot of Americans – in and out of the Tea Party movement – that quintessential expression of political elitist arrogance and contempt for the […]

Gates Turns off the Lights

by

I have been in Washington now for nearly forty years and, in all that time, I can’t recall seeing anything quite like Robert Gates’ ongoing farewell to arms. In a series of speeches over the past few days — at Notre Dame, at the American Enterprise Institute and at the Naval Academy — the outgoing Secretary of […]

Obama’s Muslim Outreach 2.0: Doing Business with the Muslim Brotherhood

by

President Obama’s latest paean to what he calls “the Muslim world,” delivered at the State Department today, was an exercise in whistling past the graveyard of real and growing dangers and a litany of misleading statements that borders on official malpractice.   Its most important upshot is this:  The United States is now prepared to do […]

Something Rotten in Denmark (and Here)

by

Surprisingly, on net, last week was not a good one for the Free World.  Despite the signal accomplishment of liquidating Osama bin Laden, Western civilization suffered serious reverses on several fronts. What these reverses all have in common is a deference to the doctrine our enemies’ call “shariah,” in a manner they perceive to be […]

Time for a Fresh Start on ‘Terrorism’

by

The liquidation of Osama bin Laden is a cause for full-throated national celebration.  It must also be the occasion for a redirection of our efforts to wage and win what has been misnamed “the War on Terrorism.”  At last, we must recognize the struggle we are in for what it is – the War for […]

Enabling the Muslim Brotherhood in America

by

The Muslim Brotherhood’s mask is slipping in Egypt.  Small “d” democrats there and elsewhere are alarmed by top Brotherhood officials who now aver openly what has been utterly predictable:  Once in power they will impose shariah – the totalitarian, supremacist politico-military-legal program practiced in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Somalia, Sudan and increasingly elsewhere. The prospect that […]

Protecting Chavez, Endangering America?

by

President Obama’s recent trip to three Latin American nations was absolutely surreal.  For one thing, he launched a war against Libya from there.  For another, he lauded and pledged support for offshore drilling in Brazilian waters that he has shut down in our own.  And he spoke glowingly of the progress of democracy as though […]
