Afghanistan Rules of Engagement Endanger American Soldiers

This is the most disturbing account I’ve read in some time regarding America’s rules of engagements in the on-going conflict in Afghanistan. From the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights: I’ve argued in Winning the Unwinnable War and in talks around the country that this policy is self-crippling and morally perverse. And the policy is […]

Obama’s View on the Military’s Purpose

Here’s a quick bit on how Obama sees our military’s purpose: Addressing nearly 1,000 graduating cadets at the U.S. Military Academy, many of whom will likely head to war in Iraq and Afghanistan under his command, Mr. Obama said all hands are required to solve the world’s newest threats: terrorism, the spread of nuclear weapons, […]

Obama’s Thin Skin

Obama is many things. Tolerant of criticism isn’t one of them—but then, since when do dictators take criticism well? Writing about this aspect of Obama’s character at Politics Daily, Peter Wehner said: Not surprisingly, Obama’s thin skin leads to self pity. As Daniel Halper of The Weekly Standardpointed out, in a fundraising event for Sen. […]

Newsflash: Steyn Eviscerates Obama Again

Mark Steyn is one of the few non-Objectivist writers I can think of who says the right thing more often than not, even when the right thing is politically incorrect. He has ample opportunity to do so, of course, given the Obama presidency, and in an article in the National Review he’s true form. Discussing […]

Obama as Anti-American

Edward Cline sent a letter to Charles Krauthammer at the Washington Post, to nudge Krauthammer in the direction of calling Obama out morally and not just practically. In his usual well-written and –reasoned style, Cline identified in the letter Obama’s essential nature: Obama is the vengeance dream of every anti-American “radical” who ever demonstrated against […]

Woody Allen: Obama Should Be a Dictator

Yes, Hollywood remains largely disconnected from reality. Speaking about the great job that Obama has been doing as President, Woody Allen said: I am pleased with Obama. I think he’s brilliant. The Republican Party should get out of his way and stop trying to hurt him…it would be good…if he could be a dictator for […]

Obama to the Rescue

President Obama has jumped on his white horse and is riding swiftly to the rescue in the Gulf, bringing a few hand-picked scientists along with him to provide moral support. This is important, because of course those incompetents over at BP certainly can’t assemble a team of any merit on their own. Okay, so it’s […]

Jeremiah Wright – Obama’s Spiritual Father Speaks

It’s been awhile since this blog has been updated. That’s not been on purpose, and the story behind the delay might be interesting to some (it’s a story about the housing and financial crisis, on a very micro scale), but it’s not been decided whether it’s actually worth a post. What is worth it, though, […]

Obama Succeeds in Destroying Property Rights

This is tragic, and frightening: Chrysler Lenders Give Into Restructuring: A scrappy group of dissident lenders that challenged President Obama’s restructuring of Chrysler LLC fell apart Friday in a development that signals a major political victory for the White House and likely paves the way for a rapid exit from bankruptcy for the beleaguered automaker.

“Churning out Barney Franks, Michael Moores, and Al Gores…” Classic! Definitely worth a watch…
