No Lame Duck, but a Lame Dove!
January 26, 2015: President Obama's State of the Union Address made it clear he is no Lame Duck. Despite his midterm election drubbing, the President came out swinging. The economy has come off the mat. Ironically enough, he is benefiting from crash of oil prices. But in his case, he did everything he could do to prevent the surge in domestic oil and natural gas production.
President Obama: On Bowing to Kings
January 26, 2015: It was a stunning sight. President Obama was in London for a summit meeting in early 2009. He bowed low before King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. President Obama had apparently never learned that Americans do not bow and the American President, especially, should never bow to a King.
Aborting Black America: The 'Black Lives Matter' Slogan Excludes The Unborn
January 21, 2015: "Black lives matter" has become the slogan of anti-police protests across the nation, but the target of the protests is so misplaced that the motives of the so-called civil rights leaders behind the movement must be questioned. Do they really care about black lives? Or are they cynically exploiting isolated incidents, such as the death of Michael Brown, to inflame the black population and advance their own political interests?
The Energy Deniers
January 19, 2015: We hear it all the time from the liberal left: those of us who legitimately question man's impact on alleged global warming and call out the scandal plagued, phony facts used to support their hypothetical theories, are routinely labeled as, "Climate Deniers."
France Needs a Second Amendment-And so do We!
January 14, 2015: CBS News gave an early report on the terrorist attacks in Paris. It included this telling sentence: "A reporter for Britain's Telegraph newspaper in Paris told Sky News that the first two officers to arrive, who were apparently unarmed, fled after seeing gunmen armed with automatic weapons and possibly a grenade launcher."
President Obama's Abdication
January 14, 2015: No, he hasn't stepped down from the presidency, but President Barack Obama has effectively abdicated his role as "Leader of the Free World." With the headlines in newspapers all over the world focusing on the leaders who gathered in Paris for the massive solidarity march last weekend, the absence of President Obama-and any other top administration official-could not have been more glaring.
Cuba and Kristallnacht: The Lessons
January 09, 2015: The left in the U.S. and throughout Western democracies are excited, of course, over President Obama's decision the week before Christmas to restore "normal" diplomatic relations with Cuba. This has been a long-sought goal of the left wing of the Democratic Party here and among the Socialists in Europe.
A Time to Act on Energy Security
January 09, 2015: With the new year comes a new Congress, and, as always, energy policy will be a major priority for this 114th session. Now that Republicans have regained control of both the Senate and the House, and with President Obama looking to establish his legacy, there is a unique opportunity to build positive momentum on energy security and reduce America's vulnerability to the historically volatile oil market.
Surrender To Cuba? Why Didn't We Think Of That?
December 19, 2014: Thinking of this latest diplomatic blunder, we have to recall Ron Radosh's poignant and mordantly funny story in his book, Commies: A Journey through the Old Left, the New Left, and the Leftover Left. Young Radosh, then a Communist Party member, went to Cuba with a group of American psychiatrists. These Marxists were given a tour of one of Castro's mental hospitals.
Kerry: Lose that Limp-Shrimp Pink Tie!
December 19, 2014: Well, here's the problem. No wonder the U.S.-Iranian nuclear talks are going nowhere. Sec. of State John Kerry has had to kick the can down the road - again. He just gave Iran another extension on the West's deadline to come to an agreement about Iran's drive for a nuclear weapon. Deadline? Red line? Dead red line?
