The Russian Conflict and the Obama Shift Towards Global War

By now, it is no secret the global market for oil prices are seeing record low totals when compared to the past decade. But contrary to conventional wisdom, this is not at all good news, as global economies are destabilizing, the threats of state bankruptcy due to their heavy reliance upon the energy bubble to […]

Duly Noted - EU and US: A Relationship of Concern

Duly Noted

Much to their detriment, Americans like to ignore the rest of the world. Accordingly, they do not appreciate reminders that, like it or not, the rest of the world is out there. Worse, some of its “leading leaders” have rabies and “bite.” Aware of the provocation, […]

Hitler and Obama

In the wake of Benjamin Netanyahu’s monumental reelection in Israel, the raw stench of antisemitism wafted from the bowels of Barack Obama’s true character in a manner I never believed possible for a sitting president. But why should I be surprised […]

Duly Noted - Perils and their Perspectives

Duly Noted

It is risky to take the rickety boat from Africa to Europe. Nevertheless, masses embark on a journey to a dream that dissipates once reached. Unshaken by the perils, the goal remains to enter an assumed paradise. The participants put themselves in harm’s way and antagonize […]

Don’t Just Do Something, Stand There!

As a long time non-interventionist veteran of the intra-conservative battle over foreign policy, I often find myself dealing with the default assumption by American interventionists that America just has to “do something” about whatever the foreign crisis of the day is. They are reminiscent of the harried work supervisor who exclaims to a slack employee, […]

Je ne Suis pas Charlie — I’m Sane

Bill Maher and the Next War

Obama’s Paris No Show Reveals a Two-part Message

obmglfLinking arm-in-arm and marching for a cause is EXACTLY what a community organizer does. To protest for a just cause and show solidarity with a aggrieved population against the unjust acts of a violent and tyrannical group is something that an self-avowed activist like Barack Obama would […]
