Chemical weapons used again in Syria

We were told by the Obama administration that Barack Obama’s diplomacy resulted in the removal of all chemical weapons available to the cruel Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’. (Even though Obama backed away from his “red line” and handed the job over to Russia, which, it turns out, helped Russia expand its Middle East foothold.) But they’re back,... Read more »

Trump's chance to make his stand clear on Russia

The peaceful protests in Russia against corruption (i.e. Vladimir Putin and his dissolute regime) gives President Donald Trump a good opportunity to take the right side on an enemy of American interests. . Throughout his campaign, Trump was inexplicably friendly to Putin and hard on NATO among other positions that made the president appear to... Read more »

All right! Obama has ISIS surrounded!

In what may be President Barack Obama’s most poorly timed proclamation, he asserted on ABC that ISIS has been contained, just hours before the deadly Islamist jihadists’ attacks on Paris. He said (about 1:10 into the video):  “I don’t think they’re gaining strength,” the president told Stephanopoulos in an interview at the White House Thursday.... Read more »

Barack Obama's and John Kerry's anti-science rejection of Keystone XL pipeline

A lot of accusations have been flying around, denouncing anyone who questions the modeling that “proves” that civilization is causing global warming. “Anti- science deniers,” they’re called, and lumped in with anyone who doubts the much-more conclusive evidence of evolution. They’re anti-science dumbbells. I wonder where the same critics are now when it comes to... Read more »

GOP debate winner:Carly Fiorina. Losers: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama

Carly Fiorina came away as the winner of the GOP debates–a surprise to everyone except those who know her and have heard her speak. She was assigned to the JV squad (the early, non-prime-time debate between the seven candidates who didn’t make the first team cut) because only about 40 percent of Republicans know who...

Trey Gowdy asks questions about Benghazi that reporters can't answer

Reporters sat mute as Rep. Trey Gowdy asked them questions about Benghazi that reporters can’t answer. Reporters normally don’t respond to questions posed by a person who calls a press conference, and this time they didn’t either. As a long-time Chicago newspaper reporter, I probably would have not answered the questions either; that’s not normal... Read more »

The veto of the Keystone Pipeline by Barack Obama, the anti-science president of 'no'

President Barack Obama’s veto of the bi-partisan congressional authorization of the Keystone XL pipeline is telling, revealing him to be the anti-science president of ‘no.’ Yes, yes, I know that progressives have tried to copyright accusations of “anti-science” and the “politics of no” to be hurled exclusively at conservatives and Republicans.  But, if the shoe...

Howard Dean's right that Scott Walker's failure to finish college makes him unqualified to be president

I should know, I went to Marquette University and the same as Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, I failed to take the courses that would have qualified me to be president. As former governor Howard Dean so aptly put it, without that final year of college presidential-prep course work, Walker is unqualified to be president and... Read more »

President Barack Obama's 2015 State of the Union live blog

All times are central standard time. 9:05 p.m. He’s got balls, criticizing Republicans for being pigheaded. He calls for compromise, but at the start threatens vetoes. His crony in the Senate, former majority leader Harry Reid, blocked countless votes, including any action on some 300 bills sent to the Senate by the House. Really heartening on... Read more »

Obama: "Sony made a mistake." How to Respond to Cyber Attacks?

Well there you have it. Obama states that Sony “made a mistake” by not releasing a the movie, “The Interview.” Good for him. What’s more, he said we would respond. Again, great to hear. Looks like the president understands to some degree the gravity of this situation. Now the question comes, how do we respond?... Read more »
