Obama’s New World Order

We are in a war for our survival against Islamic extremism. We have been in this war for quite some time, but we only fully realized it on September 11, 2001. The roots of the conflict stretch back many centuries. The al Qaeda-inspired Islamists who are taking over Iraq and who hope to establish a mini-Caliphate stretching into Syria mean business. They mean to do us

Obama During Campaign: “Al Qaeda Has Been Decimated”

With the closing of U.S. embassies in Muslim countries around the world, the White House is putting out word that while it has claimed al Qaeda’s “core” in Pakistan is on the ropes, it has acknowledged that al Qaeda’s affiliates elsewhere are not. But President Obama was not so keen on making such subtle distinctions during the campaign. The gist of his reelection message was

Obama: Odds of Dying by Terrorism Less Than in Car Accident

Oh boy. What about compared to a shark attack? Or being struck by lightening during a shark attack? Anyway, President Obama finally consented to some questions on the terror threat to the nation, answering, as I predicted, to the queries of a comedian, Jay Leno. With predictable results. From the report of the press pool that covered Obama’s taping of the Tonight Show: POTUS said

Obama Refuses to Talk to America About Terror Threat

President Obama continues to say nothing to a jittery nation about what some who have been briefed on the danger are describing as the worst terrorist threat since 9/11, declining to either offer reassurance or an explanation of the peril the nation faces. Certainly, the president does not want to take questions about a threat he had minimized during the 2012 campaign. But what’s striking

Obama and the Al Qaeda Surge

We are in a war against terrorism. It may last a very long time. It is a very unfortunate thing. It will cost us lives and treasure. But we have to face reality or face the consequences. President Obama wants his presidency to be about domestic policy – his plan to fundamentally transform the country, as he has put it. If he is conducting serious

Obama Took Osama Out of Context

Now this is fascinating. President Obama Thursday deceptively took Osama Bin Laden’s words out of context to help make a point about how al Qaeda is on its knees and we can curtail our use of drones – and start winding down the rest of the War on Terror. Or what’s apparently now “The War on a Couple of Remaining Terrorists.” The deception was uncovered

Obama Repeatedly Heckled by Code Pink Activist

President Obama today got the heck heckled out of him by Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin as he was discussing his plan to close Guantanamo. Her complaint was that she wants him to . . . close Guantanamo. Okay, it doesn’t make sense. But being crazy is not really about making sense. Have a look. I’ve never seen such a successful and thorough heckling. What
