Congress, are you thinking?

Seal of the Islamic State. Is Obama their secret ally, sowing complacency to give this State time to build?

The people of America, Republicans, Independents and yes, even Democrats once again have been placed in future danger by this renegade government.  Yesterday the House of Representatives and the United States Senate voted to once again fund and arm terrorists who will in very short order, turn those weapons on Americans.

James Risen v. Obama

Presidents are supposed to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. Can an executive order violate that oath?

James Risen, old-line reporter for The New York Times, thought the world changed in 2009. Like nearly everyone else at The New York Times (where he worked) and similar papers, he expected Barack Hussein Obama to change the world. Now at least a President would not only respect confidential sources but also take down the apparatus of State secrets. How wrong he was!

Geneva convention lies

The Red Cross symbol. The Geneva Convention has always been a Red Cross project.

Critics of the Republic of Israel throw the name “Geneva convention” around and make it a buzz phrase. Their premise: Israel breaks the Geneva convention, by how it either runs things in Judea and Samaria (“the West Bank”), or fights its war in and over Gaza. But a close read of the Geneva convention shows Israel has not broken that convention or any of its protocols. Their enemies break that convention all the time, but no one complains, even in a whisper.

Reciprocity and extradition

Flag of Mexico. Symbol of the Obama alien invasion?

In his recent talks with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieta, the man now occupying our White House failed to discuss the return of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. Sgt. Tahmooressi mistakenly entered Mexico with firearms that were registered in the USA. When he voluntarily informed the Mexican border control that he made a mistake by entering their country and had firearms on him, he was thrown in jail, where he was beaten and served dinners consisting of bread and sugar water.

Muslim in Chief

A typical Muslim national flag: green with a white crescent and star.

 

The Lord shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods. …

– Deuteronomy 28:36

If you thought the U.N. International Baccalaureate and federal No Child Left Behind educational schemes were bad enough, you might want to look a little deeper. In light of the 9/11 attacks, you would think the current administration would use a little prudence if it were sincerely concerned about a radical Muslim threat. When Obama took his oath of office, he instead defied America in numerous ways. He has given $1.5 billion to Muslim-led Egypt in foreign aid, shortly after the Muslim Brotherhood declared war on the United States. This is the same man that said America is “no longer a Christian nation,” followed by a reference that America may be described as a Muslim nation.

Israel Gaza conflict – wider war?

Members of the Israel Defense Forces on the Golan Heights. These are the real men of ideals in the Middle Ease.

The Israel Gaza conflict broke out again this week. It has simmered for seven years, and hints of a breakout came when the Islamic Resistance Movement (HAMAS in Arabic) seized power in Gaza and governed it their own way. Now the armies of Israel have had enough. But they also have evidence that Iranian advisers helped HAMAS this time. This war might become much wider, and involve all the Middle East.

Terrorist attack: ask the obvious questions

Osama Bin Laden compound. A terrorist attack to kill an ambassador, but not to avenge this?

On September 11, 2012, America experienced another terrorist attack, but this time it was on foreign soil. To be clear, our embassies in foreign lands are supposed to be “American.” They are a little piece of real estate that is an extension of American soil in whatever land they are located. Many questions are arising amidst this tragedy.

Muslim mobs kill ambassador, storm embassy

Flag of Egypt. What happened in Egypt is a metaphor for American policy failures in the Middle East.

Yesterday, Muslim street mobs scaled the wall of the United States Embassy in Cairo and attacked and burned the United States Mission in Benghazi, Libya. The mob even killed the US Ambassador to Libya when he came to get his employees out of the mission. And US officials stunned the world—by apologizing to the mobs.

Israel and Iran: time has run out

Sar Kenan, ancient gateway into Israel from the north.

Today the Prime Minister of Israel did something heads of state don’t normally do. He roared at an ambassador in his office. He told American Ambassador Dan Shapiro that “time has run out.” Specifically the time to talk Iran out of making enough weapons-grade uranium for one or more bombs is now past.

Strait of Hormuz to close?

Flag of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Did Obama try to wangle an October Surprise in Iran? Maybe, but he probably didn't get it.

Officials from Iran threatened the world with another oil shock over the weekend. A ranking general said that he had plans in place to close the Strait of Hormuz. The Majlis, or parliament, is debating a bill to do just that. But the Arab countries in the Persian Gulf region are looking for ways to bypass the Strait of Hormuz. And the US Navy has its own plans to keep the Strait open.
