I think this title is useful in these circumstances because if requires the left to come to terms with their entire worldview. White House Obama exempts Syria airstrikes from tight standards on civilian deaths.

I bet that thin-skinned Obama doesn’t like the ridicule he’s now getting

by Skip June 12, 2014

We’ve seen this before – but that’s the problem with Progressives – no sense of history and repercussions in trying to repeat it with success.  And it would be funny if it wasn’t so serious.  You know, with Ramadi, Fallujah, Mosul, and Tikrit falling to Al Qaeda style affiliates (hey, they’re ALL jihadi Islamists, Obama!), […]

Data Point – Do we need a bake sale for Dept of Defense?

by Skip September 8, 2013

Years ago, one of the Left’s favorite bumper sticker said that they would have achieved their goal when instead of schools having bake sales, the Department of Defense had to have one.  The idea was also summed up by the phrase “Make Love Not War”.  Now, education, peace, and love are nice things, important things […]

AFP – Remembering Andrew Breitbart.

by Steve MacDonald March 1, 2013

March 01, 2013 A year ago today we were stunned by the loss of the prolific, insightful and passionate new-media general Andrew Breitbart.

Ignoring Threats Invites Aggression and Raises the Death Toll

Historical Perspective: The Atom Bombs Dropped on Japan

by Tim Condon October 2, 2011
