Parsing Obamaspeak On Middle East

PMK is the nom de guerre. And here are a few comments he posted recently at Jihad Watch concerning candidate Barack Obama's most recent offerings with regard to the Iraqi situation (in italics): OW I UNDERSTAND WHY so many people swoon in Obama's presence. It IS his language! Pure Obamaspeak. He goes around and around in circles and he just makes people dizzy. But what we also want to do is to shrink the pool of potential recruits. And that involves engaging the Islamic world rather than vilifying it, and making sure that we understand that not only are those...

Obama's Man In Gitmo

T'S FITTING THAT an ex-Muslim chaplain who once insisted there weren't any terrorists at Gitmo is a delegate for Barack Obama, who's itching to shut down Gitmo. That Obama man is James "Yousef" Yee, a former Army Muslim chaplain charged with espionage while serving at Gitmo, who will represent Washington state for Obama at the Democratic National Convention, where he'll likely have a center-stage speaking role. The two are a perfect match. Obama promises to not only close Gitmo, but "reform" the USA Patriot Act. He apparently plans to take those steps in between tea parties with state sponsors of...


Obama's Problem With Jewish Voters

Seems the Barack Obama campaign will be facing trouble in critical swing states if he prevails, as expected, over Hillary Clinton, and faces the Republican nominee, John McCain, in November. In a spot of good news, Obama's apparent coziness and unfortunate naivité with regard to the bellicose stances of Hamas and Iran have unsettled many Jewish voters who traditionally vote the Democratic ticket. The Washington Times explains Obama's dilemma in an editorial, excerpted here: S HE MOVES CLOSER TO WINNING the Democratic presidential nomination, it is becoming increasingly apparent that Barack Obama has a huge problem winning the trust of...


Master Of Change And His Disciples

The following excerpt of an essay by John Perazzo published at Front Page Mag is a splendid starting point for educating oneself concerning the unsavory tactics of revolutionaries, radicals, and enforcers rising up from both the Left and the Right. Read it all. The link to the full essay, which is rather long and comprehensive, is at the end of this excerpt. MERICANS ARE WELL-ACQUAINTED with presidential candidate Barack Obama’s legendary pledges to bring “change” to America’s political and social landscape. (For example, see here and here and here.) Indeed, “Change We Can Believe In” is the slogan that adorns...


Hillary's The Obliterator In Chief

S PENNSYLVANIA VOTERS go to the polls in a primary widely regarded as do-or-die for Senator Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, the New York Democrat apparently is positioning herself to the right of some Republicans, vowing that if Iran attacks Israel with nuclear weapons, she would respond in kind against Tehran, with the ability to "totally obliterate them." Would she, or won't she? Only her hairdresser knows for sure. Clinton's remarks came during an interview airing tomorrow morning on the ABC News show, Good Morning America. ABC's Chris Cuomo asked Clinton what she would do if Iran attacked Israel with nuclear...
