I am a bit disappointing in the lack of interest this story attracted* given all the jokes at our disposal.  I’m referring to the news of Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s off-shore investment in the fourth largest oil company in the world, S.A. Total ( Chevron, Inpex–a Japanese firm–and Weather-ford International.)  After the initial burst of news […]

Jeanne Shaheen is a hypocrite.  But you knew that.  She objects to domestic energy but takes money from petroleum lobbyists.  She plays the party line on CO2, but parties with left-coast hedge fund managers who get rich on thermal coal.   She complains about SuperPAC’s and outside money but does not object to Billionaire Tom Steyer […]

Blog Headline of the Day – Irony lost on the Obama Administration

by Skip June 24, 2014

Courtesy of The Corner: Obama declare ‘Broader ISIS Foothold’ against U.S. Interests, ISIS Gains Broader Foothold Determined Weakness: I am now convinced that each and every foreign policy decision that Obama makes has one and only one purpose – to make the US less influential on the world stage.  Name one thing that President “Red […]

Cloned Drone Phones Home – Readers Groan

by Mike May 13, 2014

Christian Science Monitor has a story about the unveiling of a purportedly cloned copy of the US RQ170 Stealth Drone, by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

How US elections have consequences…for the world NRO Then came the waxen Obama soaring on hope and change, the president who would remake the world along the lines envisioned in a college faculty lounge or a Chicago organizing session.

Blown To Pieces In Our Time!

by Mike January 20, 2014

It is widely believed that Neville Chamberlain’s naivete in dealing with Adolph Hitler led Hitler to conclude that the great power of the day would not stand in his way as his armies swallowed up Europe. It is widely believed today that Barack Obama’s naivete in dealing with the Iranian mullahs has led them to […]

Relentless

This is a great review of Obama’s abuse of the term relentless, and how, frankly–like most else that comes from this Presidents mouth–it doesn’t mean a damn thing, and everyone on the planet except Obama, the Media, and the Obamazombies know it. The article is actually about the lack of enforcement regarding sanctions against Iran, […]

What Is It With Democrat Presidents…?

by Steve MacDonald November 25, 2013
Thumbnail image for What Is It With Democrat Presidents…?

President Bill Clinton lobbed missiles or bombs at select “enemies” as a distraction on the evenings before major hearings or depositions tied to his peter-problem. Obama, seeing his polling collapse after being nailed on 20 plus counts of “serial liar who would say anything for a political victory,” and the ObamaCare fallout of his disinterest […]

Clearer and clearer – Determined Weakness

by Skip September 29, 2013

In foreign policy, this means cozying up to our enemies while putting “the nose in the air” when dealing with our “former” allies.  Yes, the scare quotes are intentional. To be specific, if you were Israel, would this be all that comforting?  This from the This Week with [Clinton's former wonder boy] George Stephy’s interview […]

Obama “yakking” with Rouhani – why do I think this is merely a replay of Clinton & North Korea?

by Skip September 27, 2013

Iran – that’s the country that violated our sovereign territory, invaded our embassy, and held our hostages while Jimmy Carter was President.  Iran – the country that has been refining uranium in sufficient quality and quantity to build the bomb that could carry out their oft screamed promise to wipe Israel off the map.  The […]

“Obam’s standing in the world is now so bad that even IRAN feels free…”

…to diss him?” Getting time with the President of the United States anywhere use to be the epitome of success – more so from small countries or those striving to be recognized on the world stage. No one turned down that opportunity.  The fact that new President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, turned down Obama’s offer […]

Talk about magical misdirection…

In a letter published at Gateway Pundit, Dr. Mark Christian, a former Muslim Broterhood Member, begins with this… Syrian president Bashar el Assad, Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah of Lebanon are fully responsible for the death of United States Ambassador Christopher Stevens. President Obama has known this fact since the minute he first learned about the attack.

Bugs Obama, Yosemite Assad, Wile Iranians and Red Lines

by Scott Morales April 26, 2013

The Charlatan in Chief blustered and threw down a red line last August to the Assad regime on chemical weapons. Or so it seemed to his fans at the time. He went forth to the adoring throngs with their laptops, tech Pad du jours, and cameras clutched and at the ready. Their attention hung on […]

President Obama says Secretary Clinton has been one of our country’s finest Secretaries of State.  Huh??  Is the President now smoking something other than cigarettes?

Attempt to Cover up Naive, Dangerous, Failed Obama Policies

by Don October 13, 2012

For weeks President Obama and his top aides lied to us, claiming the events in the Middle East on 9-11 were caused by a movie that few people even knew about.   Those claims were attempts to cover up President Obama’s failed Middle East policies that strengthen terrorists, comfort our enemies, and are bringing the […]

Media Bias In Iran – Not that Different

by Steve MacDonald October 4, 2012

This story is about how the Iranian currency, the rial, has lost four fifths of its value in the past year.  While that has many portents what caught my eye was this… “They spend billions of dollars to keep Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in power, but now they say they have no money!,” one garment […]

A Bronx Cheer for Ahmadinejad – NYP: “Peace of Sh!t”

by Mike September 25, 2012

The New York Post forcefully expressed their disgust this morning with the vile hate speech of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the UN General Assembly, in which he once more called for Israel’s annihilation, while our UN delegation SUPPORTIVELY REMAINED IN THEIR SEATS! Mr Speaker (That’s you, Boehner), Have we reached “High Crimes and Misdemeanours” yet on […]

Just a Theory…

by Steve MacDonald August 25, 2012

I think Iran and Egypt are co-coordinating a response to the impending Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear capability. The expectation is that Israel will do something before the November elections.  Egypt, which is now engaging in diplomatic exchanges with Iran, has recently moved more military hardware into the Sinai peninsula to deal with militants and […]

“Iran’s warriors are ready and willing to wipe Israel off the map,” That from the Iran’s Deputy Defense Minister, Ahmad Vahidi.  Now, he is saying this in context of Israel attacking Iran to stop the latter from getting the bomb – a terse warning of “don’t try it”.

Iran Wins RC Model Competition and Takes Home the Prize

by Mike December 18, 2011

A Y! Tech Headline on Friday suggested that the US RQ-170 spy drone which went down over Iran recently may have been downed by hacking its GPS.

The Threat From Iran

by Steve MacDonald August 15, 2011

The need to stop policing the world, a desire to avoid wars like that in Iraq and Afghanistan, and a consensus similar to Rep Paul’s, that Iran is not the threat the war-mongring neo-con’s make it out to be, all rise to the surface of the debate. But while it is reasonable to argue these points, does it make sense to use them as an excuse to keep our head in the sand about Iran for another four years while the suicidal mad man build nuclear weapons?
