Yeah, But … Romney’s Women in Binders!!!!

Obama, his administration, the MSM, and Candy Crowley still just cannot seem to come clean on the failure in Benghazi, and the follow-up cover-up that is still spinning. Something as simple as not only providing daily security for your ambassador in a country that is still in the throngs of a transition from dictator regime […]

Two stories about Iranian cyber-attackers

Panetta says cyber attackers accessed controls for critical US infrastructure: In a blunt admission designed to prod action, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta Thursday night told business executives there has been a sudden escalation of cyber terrorism and that attackers have managed to gain access to control systems for critical infrastructure. In a speech in New […]

Must watch video: Lara Logan 2012 BGA Annual Luncheon Keynote Speech

South African television and radio journalist, and war correspondent, Lara Logan, has blown the lid off the official position on the war against radical Islam, and the campaign in Afghanistan. "We think we've won the campaign when they haven't begun to fight." Former ambassador Ryan Crocker.

The State Department: We Didn’t Say What You Heard Us Say for Days After the Benghazi Attack – UPDATE

As they say, "denial ain't just a river in Egypt". Ironically Egypt ain't looking any better-off than Libya, but that's for another post. It is just very difficult now to deny the timeline leading to the attack in Libya, and they know it. As the Congressional hearings begin today on the 9/11/12 attack in Benghazi, […]

The “Taliban Apologists” are Dead Wrong

CBS “60 Minutes” war correspondent Lara Logan gave an ominous speech to a large gathering in Chicago the other day. Her words greatly contradict the Obama administration's narrative on the Afghan war and the threat from al-Qaida. The administration just figured al-Qaida would disappear without their leader, and the Taliban would simply settle down and […]

From Diana West: ‘The Anti-Blasphemy, Anti-First-Amendment President’

Superb essay: "The Anti-Blasphemy, Anti-First-Amendment President." Who said the following: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” Iran’s Ahmadinejad? Egypt’s Morsi? Some little-known, fatwa-flinging cleric increasing the bounty on Salman Rushdie’s head? None of the above. The words are President Obama’s, and he spoke them this week to the […]

No Future For You!

Jim Geraghty ponders a sentence from Obama's UNGA speech that, quite frankly, has vexed me as well since hearing it live a couple days ago. Let's look at it in Obama context, shall we? And as we have seen again and again, Obama context is always much worse than the 'out-of-context'... "The future must not […]

“Once Again We See Islam Self-Detonate…”

Nobody says it better, or more frankly than Pat Condell. More from Roger Kimball at PJM... It’s often observed that Islam is an iconoclastic religion: they don’t like images of many things, especially of the prophet-in-chief, Ab? al-Q?sim Mu?ammad ibn ?Abd All?h ibn ?Abd al-Mu??alib ibn H?shim, i.e., Muhammad. We know this from, Oh, many […]

Thirteen centuries

Here's a audio recording of Brian Cosgrove dying on the 105th floor of 2 World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 as he spoke to 911 emergency services in New York. I post this so that all of us know who we are fighting. There is nothing new here. In one way or another, Islam, […]

‘Too drunk on his celebrity’

Mark Steyn on Obama's response to this week's crises: So, on a highly symbolic date, mobs storm American diplomatic facilities and drag the corpse of a U.S. ambassador through the streets. Then the president flies to Vegas for a fundraiser. No, no, a novelist would say; that's too pat, too neat in its symbolic contrast. […]

More disturbing images from the Benghazi attack

Once again, we have to rely on the foreign press to get news the domestic propagandists won't give us: In the wake of the deadly U.S. consulate attack in Libya’s second-largest city, disturbing images have emerged of the embassy, which is now little more than bloodied rubble that has been looted, torched, and trampled upon. […]

“You are Going to Ignore This Particular Problem Until It Swims Up and Bites You In The Ass”

Right now Rep. Michelle Bachmann is having a heated back and forth with Rep. Keith Ellison over CAIR and The Muslim Brotherhood in the United States. Right now it's pages and pages of letters being exchanged, with Ellison painting Bachmann as a nut. The FBI is reporting it was too concerned about political correctness and […]

CNN the Castro-Crescent News Network

Frankly, the alliance of the communist left and radical Islam gives me nightmares. I first became aware of this frightening trend years ago when my husband and  I noticed a definite anti-Israel bias in LA Times articles on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.   Always, always, these biased articles were penned by liberals, supposedly the tolerant, peace loving defenders […]

“Arab Spring” Frozen Under the Islamic Winter

"Democracy" ... Somebody can serve you rattle snake and tell you "it tastes just like chicken", but it's still rattle snake. Egypt held their first elections since the Obama administration helped influence the ousting of ally Hosni Mubarak from the country's leadership. As expected the country's secular government is now about to convert to an […]

They’re Not Just “Undocumented” Fruit-Pickers and Landscapers

For the last few years people have been poo-pooing the fact that terror groups, such as Hezbollah, have been training the Mexican drug cartels in Mexico, and Central and South America (more here and here), with the USA as the target in-mind. Do they really think it's all just anti-American hand-holding comradery photo-ops between Venezuela's […]
