Never forget???

Well, it seems we may have done just that. It’s been 15 years since the worst terrorist attack in our nation’s history unfolded in the skies over Long Island, Washington DC, and Shanksville PA. Nearly 3000 people were murdered, with … Continue reading

Cause and effect… Ah, the purposely ignorant voter and Election 2016…

Ignorance is truly bliss, isn’t it??? The ignorant voter is likely the person who thinks the “AR” in AR-15 stands for “Assault Rifle”, and/or that gun control reduces crime. The ignorant voter is likely the person who reads the indisputable … Continue reading

We’re all Americans…

Understanding the events in Orlando this past weekend is something which will require much time and prayer to be sure. The loss of so much humanity in one horrific action can stun the mind into utter disbelief. In these moments … Continue reading

“Evidence, facts are on our side.” – President Obama…

On its face, one could say that statement was just political bluster, spewed by a failed and departing president in search of a legacy. But this is truly puzzling, and speaks to what many are now calling, President Barack Obama’s … Continue reading

Searching for my country, 12/7/1941 – 12/7/2015…

On this day when Islamic terrorism is once again inside the boundaries of our national thought, I find myself torn between the words of a president unquestionably removed from not only the reality of the situation, but also the gravity of … Continue reading

Don’t hold your breath…

Denial is one thing, ideology is quite another. President Barack Obama is clearly of the latter category, and he makes no bones about it. So for those looking for the POTUS to run to the nearest lectern and state what … Continue reading

#Americaindecline…

I love how pretty much the entire media circus is focused on the “hyper-partisan” nature of the Congressional hearings yesterday, but the fact that as our nation’s Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton bungled and then mislead the American people on … Continue reading

See, I told ya’ so…

I seem to remember lots of talk about this inexperienced and even unqualified upstart from Chicago wanting to be the President of the United States back in 2008. It was truly odd how a still wet behind the ears Senator, … Continue reading

The first citizen soldiers in the “War on Terror”…

For me it’s as if it were yesterday. Frankly, I’m not sure that my wife and I have ever truly recovered if you will. We watched in stunned horror as the face of our nation changed forever. We rushed to … Continue reading

All is as it should be..?

There appears to be some confusion about our current status and/or policy for dealing with Islamic terrorism. Many on the Right believe our president is inept or simply blind to the threat. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Now … Continue reading

Denise and Bill Richard have suffered an unimaginable loss. As a father, I shudder at the thought of the pain they must be feeling. So when Mr. and Mrs. Richard spoke out against the death penalty for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev last … Continue reading

Presidential faux pas… Again???

Once again the POTUS has taken the low road, this time during an NPR interview with Steve Inskeep, when he suggested Governor Scott Walker “bone-up” on his foreign policy. With all due respect to the office, Mr. Obama just can’t … Continue reading

The much bigger picture…

In the broader sense, world history draws a detailed and obvious map should we of the 21st century choose to follow it. Much of the problem however comes when that history is shelved, revised, or otherwise ignored. In the more … Continue reading

Ideological foolishness at our expense…

To know history is to know the “Crusades” were far more than what modern Islam and even the president of the United States portray them as. In fact much of the time period should be viewed as an east/west defensive reaction to … Continue reading

‘Shadow of crisis has passed’… Really?

Kudos to the Republicans for taking the highroad after last night’s State of the Union address. I have no such political desire today. As expected, the president embellished his record and misrepresented much of our nation’s current station to a … Continue reading

Obama’s “WAR”…

I think the POTUS might be right, at least to the extent “ISIS” is not “Islamic” per se. I would add however, there is at least a quasi “religious” component to the Islamic States of Iraq and Syria, as I … Continue reading

You won’t get an argument from me about the military needing to take a good hard look at the way it spends its money, but rather we’d be talking about things like less bureaucratic waste and more of what soldiers … Continue reading

Leaderless…

It’s been extraordinary lately, watching our president basically walk away from his responsibilities to “We the People” and the Constitution. What’s more, he seems perfectly content to do so. I’ve done a little research and the term “lame duck” simply … Continue reading

What’s next???

Putting aside the obvious question of why are we now negotiating with terrorists, I think this latest White House stunt could very well cement the Obama Administration’s place in U.S. history as the most inept and corrupt ever. Moreover, if … Continue reading

Benghazi families exploited…

The battle lines have clearly been drawn and the Democrats have chosen the “phony scandal” philosophy, albeit with a twist this time. It seems they’ve decided to drag the Benghazi families into the fray. Now I’m sure I don’t have … Continue reading

Dangerous double speak…

September 21, 2011 – “America’s commitment to Israel’s security is unshakeable, and our friendship with Israel is deep and enduring.” (President Barack Obama) February 1, 2014 – “You see for Israel there’s an increasing de-legitimization campaign that has been building up. … Continue reading

As events in Syria continue to shape the news, I thought it interesting how the conversation has shifted somewhat to whether or not the U.S. has a “moral responsibility” to act. Additionally, the question of how America sees things in relation … Continue reading

I remain conflicted about the road forward in Syria, and frustrated to say the least with the lack of leadership our President has shown on matters of an international nature. Indecision born of ideological theory and inexperience has left Mr. Obama, (and … Continue reading

“All red lines have been crossed”…

I don’t often re-post on a topic unless there is new information and/or factors which justify the additional ink. In the case of my last article however, there seems to be some confusion regarding my position on the power struggle going on in Egypt. Judging by some … Continue reading

In what may be an effort to politicize/portray their response to the latest terror threat in a favorable light, it appears there’s been yet another “leak” of highly classified information. FOX News is now confirming NSA surveillance operations picked up and … Continue reading
