10 Good Reasons Not to Strike Syria

Did we suddenly wake up in bizarro-world, or what? Is this really John Kerry, the anti-Vietnam, anti-Iraq dove, telling us the strikes on Syria are important and necessary? Is this really Barack Obama and Joe Biden, making a case for acts of war against a sovereign nation, without even attempting UN diplomacy or seeking coalition support? It certainly seems that way, but if it were anywhere near April 1, I’d be expecting them to pull of their rubber masks and reveal their true identities to be Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld. Only, they actually DID seek diplomatic resolutions through the UN, garner coalition support, and get approval from Congress first.

As the debate rages on, and the president takes his case to the American people, I want to give you my personal Top 10 reasons for not launching strikes against Syria. Read the rest of this entry »

Obama’s Fiscal Gap

As Democrats so often like to remind Republicans, the election 0f 2012 is over and, basically, they won. In actuality, it was not the Republicans who lost, it was the Democrats who managed not to lose. At the same time, for the past four years, the American people have been losing under Democratic policies. What happens in the next four years will be largely decided in the next six months. Of most concern to us, as it should be to every American, is the vast “fiscal gap” which opened up in 2009 and remains today, virtually undiminished. It is that gap which could potentially swallow the entire country. It is that gap which makes the coming “Fiscal Cliff” look like a minor bump in the road.

Dear George Bush, Thanks For The Oil! Signed, The New York Times

A strange thing happened when we all were least expecting it. The so-called paper of record, The New York Times, actually reported some facts for a change. And even more amazingly, some of these facts make Obama out to be the anti-energy president and praise George W. Bush for having the foresight to set the groundwork for our current homegrown energy boom.

On Thursday, March 22, the Times wrote a piece about how the U.S. is slowly “inching toward energy independence” and rightly noted that much of this is due to the work of one President George W. Bush!

The piece explains how the high cost of oil has opened up new vistas in the United States that were once far too expensive to bother tapping. From fracking, to oil sands, to employing new, more difficult drilling techniques, the technology for reaching these harder to get at oil reserves — of which the US has a tremendous amount — has developed at a quicker clip due to the fact that oil is no longer extremely cheap. But there was also a helping hand from Washington D.C. during the Bush years.

As the Times properly notes:

Cheney: Say, Shouldn’t Obama Apologize to Bush, Now?

It’s a good question, isn’t it? On a whole host of questions, too, not just the one that former VP Dick Cheney was referring to on CNN.

On CNN, Cheney was talking about the Predator Drone attack that last week killed al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki and his cohort Samir Khan. Cheney reminded the CNN audience that Obama slammed the Bush administration for “overreacting to 9/11.” And Cheney thought that Obama owed the whole country an apology for his characterization.

Where’s The Anti-War Nuts on Assassin Obama?

Death from the skies seems to be Obama’s biggest foreign policy achievement. Since becoming president, Obama has greatly stepped up the use of predator drones and other military ops to kill top al Qaeda officials. He’s killed dozens of them — along with much “collateral damage” in bystanders — with his drone strikes that have taken out nearly the entire top tier of al Qaeda’s and even some of the Taliban’s leadership. But there is a vexing question about this successful campaign to assassinate these terrorists: the anti-war left is wholly silent about it all.

With today’s news of the end to two top al Qaeda operatives, Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, ABC News published a list of those terrorists Obama has gacked with his death from the skies campaign. These senior al Qaeda officials tally to some 20 terrorists killed. Most have been with predator drone strikes.

Ariz. Gun Shop Owner Suspicious of Fast and Furious

An Arizona gun shop owner that was pressed into service by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATF) to illegally sell guns to straw purchasers told the L.A.Times that “Every passing week, I worried” that someone was going to get hurt with the hundreds of thousands of dollars in firearms he was selling to them.

The shop owner, Andre Howard of the Lone Wolf Gun Store in Rio Rico, Arizona, sold guns to people he knew were transporting them to Mexican narco-terrorists for 15 months under orders from the BATF. As time wore on and he never heard of any arrests and saw no announcements of tracking programs made public, Howard’s conscience really began to bother him.

Howard began to question the BATF agents but they sternly ordered him to keep selling the guns anyway.

Dick Cheney Book gets OK from George W. Bush

The new Dick Cheney book, ′In My Time′, has received at least some approval from his former boss, George W. Bush. During a segment on ″Fox & Friends″ to promote the Patriot Golf charity, which funds scholarships for children of veterans, Bush commented on Cheney′s book. ″I′m glad members of my family are giving their version of what it was like to serve our country. I did the same thing. I put my version out there. And eventually, objective historians will analyze our administration and will draw objective conclusions.″ Bush would not discuss the controversy from Colin Powell ′cheap shots′ remark or how Condoleezza Rice is unhappy with the book. Dick Cheney, Vice President Darth Vader to some, even bashed Sen. John McCain a bit for opposing the Bush administration policies on interrogation of Al Qaeda terrorosts.

Colin Powell: Big Fat Liar

Colin Powell’s reply to what he called a “cheap shot” in former Vice President Dick Cheney’s new book, “In My Time,” is little but an example of “dishonesty” that is “quite stunning,” as far as Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post is concerned.

Powell was upset over the way Cheney described the supposed leak of Valerie Plame as a CIA operative. The former Sec. of State said that the former VP delivered a “cheap shot” to say that the outing of Plame was Powell’s fault and the fault of his underling at the State Dept., Richard Armitage.

Then Powell goes on to offer his own version of the incident. Sadly, what he proffered is filled with inaccuracies. Truthfully, there is no other way to characterize Colin Powell’s version of the Valerie Plame affair but as an outright lie.
