Final Update: Watched the President’s speech and I give it B-. It was rambling and sappy at times. It lost focus as the success of tonight was diluted with grand talk of equality. It was so syrupy in places I almost felt sorry for the teleprompter. And when the President wandered into the “I” did […]

Obama’s Hit & Miss National Defense

As I have noted many times, the successful terrorist attack at Ft Hood and the nearly successful underwear bomber on Flight 253 over the skies of Detroit are evidence that team Obama lowered our national security detection thresholds. This altering of how we respond to suspicious communications or contacts with known or suspected terrorism supporters […]

Oh How The (NY) Times Have Changed

The NY Times is the largest liberal rag in the US. The folks there like to think of themselves as balanced journalists, which is just like watching a wino claim they can hold their liquor. So it is not surprising to see them praise the current administration for continuing and expanding successful policies put in […]

Pure Conservatives Break From America

As I noted below, the President laid out to America a good case for the troop increases needed to try and break the back of the Taliban and al Qaeda. I also noted the idea of a ‘schedule’ in war is not realistic or smart- but all military plans have timelines. They have to in […]

Excellent Speech Mr. President

As the father of a newly minted Marine Lance Corporal who will, in all likelihood, deploy to Afghanistan sometime in the coming year I hope people appreciate this post. As I watched our President’s speech tonight I saw for the first time the office of the President settle upon Barack Obama’s shoulders. It was a critical […]

Hunt For 9-11 Killers Finds Trail In Pakistan

One of the well connected Islamo Fascists that was on the inside of the Hamburg cell of al Qaeda, which in turn became the 9-11 highjackers, is Said Bahaji – a German citizen of Moroccan decent. He came to Hamburg in 1995. He enrolled in an electrical engineering program at a technical university in 1996. He spent […]

Context And Perspective: Swine Flu & Afghanistan

The news media lives off exaggeration and hype. They continuously apply their ignorance on all things scientific to create searing headlines to generate business and money. They should understand that this irresponsible behavior of yelling ‘fire’ when there is barely any smoke is one of the many things that have turned Americans off to their […]

War On Terror Could Be In Final Stages

I stand by General McCrystal and his request for more troops, even though that likely means our son will go to Afghanistan as part of any surge. Depending on the timing of these new forces, though, the war on terror could be wrapping up sooner rather than later. The US and Pakistan have been tightening […]

“The Somber Seriousness Of The Presidency Has Yet To Sink

The Pitch-man in Chief, the new POTUS. Prior to last fall’s election a lot of people warned about how inexperienced and naive candidate Obama was, especially when he kept pretending to wave his magic wand during the campaign, promising to make everything beautiful. His promises were so simple they bordered on fiction. He was going […]
