After last week’s speech by Benjamin Netanyahu to Congress and his recent politicking here and at home to win his upcoming re-election, it can be said that the Israeli prime minister is willing to fight to the last American.
At least President Barack Obama has done one thing right this year; he finally gave the Keystone Pipeline the coup de grâce with his veto of the project after keeping it up in the air for six years.
According to the Obama administration, the real threat to America is from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists, i.e., Americans. But that report isn’t what Barack Obama’s backers, big business, the Democrats in Congress and those who control the mass media are salivating over.
Washington is gearing up to send another generation of kids to Iraq. Of course, the network nightly news or the 24-hour news stations tell us it’s because ISIS is a threat to the world. News anchors show loop upon loop describing ISIS’s beheadings of Westerners or the burning alive of the captured Jordanian pilot.
The United States invaded the wrong country when it attacked Iraq. Saudi Arabia, not former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, financed the terrorists and aided and abetted the slaughter of thousands of innocent Americans on 9/11.
It was always just a question of time for Al Gore. The man who was nearly elected president in 2000 has flipped his lid, cracked his nut or popped his cork. His latest ingenious idea is to remove cars from all the cities of the world. And all it will take is $90 trillion.
“American Sniper” is the “true story” of Chris Kyle, a man we are told is America’s most proficient sniper with “160 confirmed kills” to his name. Yet there may be a gap between the real Kyle and the fictionalized one developed by director Clint Eastwood.
I wrote this article before the State of the Union address, so I don’t know what President Barack Obama said. My best bet is that he bragged about how well his policies have rebuilt the economy. It’s a lie. Obama and his lapdog, the Federal Reserve Board, have barely held the country together.
In the wake of the Paris slaughter that took place last week at Charlie Hebdo, the President’s mouthpieces have already busied themselves in explaining away any connection between that act and the peace-loving followers of Islam. It’s time for him to come out of the closet as a Muslim.
The price of oil is sinking faster than the Titanic. The influence on it is Saudi Arabia, which has opened up the spigots, forcing down the price of oil to $50 per barrel compared to $110 last summer. The big winner in the crude sweepstakes is Saudi Arabia. The big losers are U.S. petroleum and shale oil producers.
I’ve gotten old enough to have a modicum of wisdom to go with my gray hair and pot belly. On the basis of my experiences, I urge you to spend this Christmas sharing your love and not worrying about who got what.
Following 9/11, President George W. Bush wanted Baghdad to be another Venice with the Tigress River as its picturesque canal. A dozen years later, American intervention has led to ethnic cleansing and the rise of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Sunni leader of the Islamic State.
Race relations are the touchstone for the current outrage. But the principle reason for the outrage has more to do with the political divide within the country after four decades of ruinous economic policies.
It is a misconception that liberty is handed down to us by government. Liberty has to be earned through individuals’ acting responsibly. Government is the thief in the night who takes away our liberty when we, as a society, act irresponsibly.
Our ongoing war with Islam, largely over their oil, can be won soon. That is because American oil is being easily pumped from our domestic oilfields and refined into cheaper and cheaper gasoline. To me that smells like victory!
President Barack Obama has said he will approve the Keystone XL pipeline only if it proves to be in the strategic interest of the United States. The president seems to forget strategic interests change, sometimes in a heartbeat.
Like the first knife-thrust into Julius Caesar, the awful era of President Barack Obama came to a crashing end last week with Republican victories in the House and Senate. But the ongoing celebration over Obama’s political death is utter nonsense.
Pride has been discussed much this past week, mostly gay pride because of Tim Cook’s statement about something very personal. It got me to thinking: What can I be really prideful of or, more importantly, why are some people so prideful for no other reason than they are simply different?
Is ISIS, the devil we don’t know, any worse than the House of Saud, the devil we do know? Neither wants to drill for petroleum in the United States or run a pipeline from Canada. That is an evil that President Barack Obama and most of Congress cannot accept.
AIDS! I remember reading about it in The Wall Street Journal like it happened yesterday. The truth is it was back in 1985 and Rock Hudson had it. An insidious disease was carried by one of Hollywood’s great leading men.
The majority of Americans now believe that airstrikes alone will not destroy the Islamic State (aka ISIS or ISIL) in Iraq and that, therefore, American boots will be needed on the ground. I have an alternative: America does nothing.
What we all need is the proper balance between thought and action. Everyone knows the consequences of too much action and not enough thought. But ruination can also come from too much thought and not enough action.
The network news is selling the next planned blockbuster: “Iraq II, The Return to Baghdad.” Never mind that the original project was an abject failure and that the crisis that exists today is entirely the result of the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
