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

Suddenly, the Obamabomb

Shutting Down National Security

On October 15th, our military personnel will receive their paychecks as usual, thanks to a last-minute act of Congress passed in spite of the government shutdown affecting much of the rest of the government. But our servicemen and women are

Shutting Down National Security

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. In particular,

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

The United Nations has long been a cesspool of hostility towards the United States, Israel, and freedom more generally. It is dominated by those who promote and protect our enemies’ interests, while undermining ours. Worse yet, we pay much of

With Friends Like Qatar, Who Needs Enemies?

I interviewed former Deputy National Security Advisor Elliot Abrams on my show, Secure Freedom Radio, this morning. He observed that Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar, will shortly be visiting the White House.  Instead of the red

With Friends Like Qatar, Who Needs Enemies?

Welcome to the Global Jihad

Authorities in Massachusetts have identified suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing on Monday as Dzhokhar and (the now-deceased) Tamerlan Tsarnaev, two brothers of Chechen descent originally from Kyrgyzstan. Many Americans haven’t heard of the place; most couldn’t find it on

Libya Cover-Up Vindicates Bachmann

What is the truth about the horrific attack in Benghazi on September 11th, 2012 that killed our ambassador to Libya and three others? And why has it been so hard to get that truth out of the Obama administration? We

Libya Cover-Up Vindicates Bachmann

On Obama's Watch

On February 5th, President Obama provided his own Super Sunday show.   In some respects, it was almost as bizarre as Madonna’s performance at  half time. In particular, in his interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer,  Mr. Obama responded oddly to concerns

On Obama's Watch

The Audacity of Deceit: Notes on the State of the Union

Knowing President Obama’s Alinskyite proclivities, his third State of the Union address – coming as it did amidst a reelection campaign – could have been predicted to be filled with lofting, sometimes inspiring but routinely bait-and-switch rhetoric. Even so, his

Obama's Defeatist 'Strategy'

Listening to Barack Obama laying out what he calls his new defense strategy, my first reaction was, “Here we go again.” Having basically written off the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, Mr. Obama is falling prey to a temptation several

Speak Not of Evil: When Free Speech Becomes 'Blasphemy'

One of the most popular attractions in Washington, D.C. is a building that graces Pennsylvania Avenue with an exterior engraved with the First Amendment to the Constitution and its guarantee of, among other liberties, freedom of speech. Secretary of State

Obama's Egypt Policy, A Predictable Fiasco

The Egyptian elections have resulted in a rout for the throngs whose springtime hopes for freedom are now facing the prospect of a nuclear winter at the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood and its fellow Salafists. These Islamists appear to

A Fatal 'Box Canyon' for the GOP?

Fred Grandy is one of the smartest – and certainly most respected men – in Washington. He achieved that reputation the old fashioned way: He earned it as a former Congressman, successful non-profit business executive and long-time top-rated talk radio

Help Wanted: A National Security President

Until recently, most politicians, pundits and others among the so-called “smart people” insisted that Election 2012 was all about jobs, jobs, jobs. The more broad-minded contended that the related issues of the lousy economy and the imperatives of deficit reduction

Obama's 'Responsibility to Protect' Is To Us

For the second time this year, President Obama has committed U.S. military personnel to distant battlefields, putting them in harm’s way pursuant – more or less explicitly – to what is known in UN circles as a “responsibility to protect.”

"Horatius Wolf": Rep. Frank Wolf takes on Grover Norquist

Legend has it that ancient Rome was spared a devastating invasion by the courage and skill of a great warrior named Horatius, whose singlehanded defense of a bridge kept the enemy hordes at bay. From time to time, a contemporary

Where Are We, Ten Years After 9/11?

So, where are we ten years after 9/11? It is comforting that we have been blessed with a near-unbroken decade without further mass-casualty attacks since those that killed nearly 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001. Unfortunately, our government is pursuing

Good News From Iowa

Straw polls are notoriously overrated. This observation applies especially to the over-hyped one held most recently in Ames, Iowa over the weekend. That said, for Americans concerned about national security and seized with the necessity of electing as our next

It's 'Crazy' to Ignore Shariah

As the nation mourns the loss in combat of thirty of its military heroes – including 22 members of the Navy’s elite SEAL Team 6 – in Afghanistan over the weekend, the question inevitably occurs: What are we fighting for

The Debt Ceiling Deal: Doing in Defense

At this writing, many details of the debt ceiling deal wrangled out over the weekend remain fuzzy. One thing is clear, unfortunately: The national security of the United States is going to suffer greatly. That will be so no matter

A Warning From Norway

Almost lost in official Washington’s preoccupation with the partisan slug-fest over raising the debt ceiling and reducing the deficit was the despicable, murderous attack in Norway on Friday. Unfortunately, such inattention increases the likelihood that the wrong lessons will be

Energy Freedom Now

Mark Twain is usually credited with the quip that “Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.” The same is certainly true of our dependence on foreign, and often unfriendly, sources of energy – particularly when gas

The Tipping Point: Embracing the Muslim Brotherhood

The Obama administration chose the eve of the holiday marking our Nation’s birth to acknowledge publicly behavior in which it has long been stealthily engaged to the United States’ extreme detriment: Its officials now admit that they are embracing the
