Unsafe Spaces: Islamist Mosques

The contempt that America’s enemies have for the United States these days is palpable. The most obvious current example is Vladimir Putin’s disdain for President Obama, whom he regards as little more than a speed-bump on the road to his conquest of Ukraine and perhaps other nations in what the Kremlin calls Russia’s “near-abroad.” Apr 16, 2014 10:02 AM PT

The 'No Electric Resiliency Cabal'

Last Thursday, the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee convened what appeared to be a most timely--and much-needed--hearing. Its title was “Keeping the lights on: Are we doing enough to ensure the reliability and security of the electric grid?” Unfortunately, despite abundant evidence to the contrary, the answer we got from industry witnesses, regulators, and legislators alike was an unfounded, and profoundly misleading, “Yes.” Apr 14, 2014 1:11 PM PT

Putin's Reset

So it begins. On Sunday night, Vladimir Putin’s goons took over government facilities in three cities in eastern Ukraine. They are demanding a referendum on whether more Ukrainian territory should, like Crimea, become independent enroute to voting to be annexed by Russia. Apr 8, 2014 11:32 AM PT

California Nightmare: We Must Fix the Power Grid--Now

California’s near-miss with disaster at the Metcalf Substation is a wake-up call for every American. Each of us has a personal stake in ensuring that the grid is protected against all these hazards. Apr 6, 2014 4:00 PM PT

Lost Leader: Farewell to Jim Schlesinger

There is never a good time to lose a man of the caliber, character, and vision of James R. Schlesinger. As it happens, however, the nation he loved and served for decades with such distinction is in particular need of his unique leadership at this juncture. His passing last week is a double blow.

'Civilization Jihad' Comes to Court

Want to know what our Islamist enemies have in mind for America? Look at Europe. Virtually every country there has found itself under siege from Muslims seeking to impose the supremacist Islamic doctrine they call shariah on everyone else. Mar 25, 2014 1:28 PM PT

Don't Give Away the Internet

On Friday, March 14, 2014, the Obama administration announced that it was taking a step–without prior notice or evident consultation with Congress–to “support and enhance the multi-stakeholder model of Internet policymaking and governance.” Like so many other of Team Obama’s unilateral decisions, this one is not just contrary to the national interest. It amounts to fraud. Mar 19, 2014 8:00 AM PT

An American Fukushima? Lawmakers Neglect Our Vulnerable Power Grid

Three years ago today, an earthquake-induced tsunami devastated Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power complex. The flooding knocked out power required to cool reactors and their spent fuel pools, causing dangerous – and continuing – radioactive contamination. Unfortunately, unless we act quickly, such a catastrophe is in the cards for America, too. Mar 11, 2014 6:29 PM PT

How to Thwart Putin's 'Evil Empire' 2.0

What might just give Vladimir Putin pause, and perhaps spare the world another generation of Moscow-directed repression and imperialism, or worse, would be the adoption by President Obama and the rest of the Free World of a strategy modeled after the one Ronald Reagan used to end the last “Evil Empire.” Mar 4, 2014 6:22 PM PT

America's Provocative Weakness

Among former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld’s many illuminating “rules” is his trenchant observation that “weakness is provocative.” Indeed, the accelerating instability we see worldwide is, in no small measure, a product of the weakness being communicated at every turn by Barack Obama’s administration. Worse yet, the steps the President is taking to weaken America further will make it vastly more difficult to contend with the aggression he has invited. Feb 25, 2014 3:13 PM PT

Feinstein: Jihadists Will Stop Hating the West Only When They Achieve Shariah Law

Yesterday was a red letter day--or perhaps it should be called an Islamic green letter one--for U.S. intelligence. For the first time I can recall, the top legislator on a congressional oversight committee actually made clear what motivates our enemies in what used to be called euphemistically the “War on Terror,” and what Team Obama now dubs even more opaquely as the effort to “counter violent extremism.” Dec 2, 2013 3:29 PM PT

Suddenly, the Obamabomb

The president who promised us that his health care legislation would allow us to keep our insurance plans and doctors now insists that his agreement with Iran will not allow it to keep a nuclear-weapons program. What the two pledges have in common is that they are both lies. Nov 27, 2013 6:58 AM PT

Shutting Down National Security

According to the Joint Chiefs of Staff, if the sequestration process is permitted to continue to reduce Pentagon budgets over the next ten years by another half a trillion dollars, the uniformed leaders of three of the four services say they will not be able to execute even a one-war mission. And the Marine Commandant says his would have difficulty in doing so. Oct 4, 2013 12:52 AM PT

End the Fratricide

The community of prominent conservatives who deeply understand and thoughtfully articulate the nature of the threat we face from our Islamist enemies and the supremacist doctrine they call shariah has long been too small for the nation’s good. Sep 16, 2013 3:47 PM PT

Samantha Power: The Quintessential 'Blame America First'-er

The American people do not need to populate the United Nations with any more anti- or post-Americans, especially as their “representative” to that organization. Someone who equates the United States with Adolf Hitler’s Germany, someone who has for years derided the U.S. contribution to freedom and a better planet, someone who yearns for a new world order in which our nation is not only unexceptional but subject to the dictates of others, is not someone we want anywhere near Turtle Bay.
