Obama Suspiciously Threads Needle

"Can we guarantee that they're not going to try to participate in another attack? No. But what I can guarantee is that if we don't uphold our Constitution and our values, that over time that will make us less safe. And that will be a recruitment tool for organizations like al-Qaeda." —President Obama to NBC on potentially released Guantanamo detainees ARACK OBAMA WALKS A FINE LINE in pursuing the Constitution when it comes to endangering America. First of all, Gitmo has no relevant prcedence in the US Constitution, and to infer that such is the case, is mere boondoggling and...

Ascendant Enemies

From the Washington Times, more evidence that a major showdown with the enemies of liberty and religious sanity—as articulated in the West—is in the making. There is nothing wrong with noting the reality on the ground, and preparing for the inevitable.

I'm sorry, but any other notion of fairness in motive is just too much of a stretch for the contemporary American politician. The Democrats tried to vote down the Iraq war and failed as soon as the rubber met the pavement. Yes, dear, life is more complicated than simply pulling one's thumb out of one's oriface of choice. So they now attempt to circumvent an action just beginning to succeed, even according to...


From Syria With A Grain Of Salt

N THIS FINE SPRING DAY when the cherry blossoms are in maximum bloom along the Potomac River and Tidal Basin in Washington, DC, the Beiruit Daily Star reports that Nancy Pelosi has landed. With a squeak and a thud, I might add. On the eve of a meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad, US Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Monday she believed greater communication between the United States and Syria could help establish stability in the region and called the bilateral talks a matter of US national security. "The road to solving Lebanon's problems passes through Damascus," Pelosi told reporters after...
