The latest edition of Reinhild Niebuhr’s 1954 The Irony of American History features a cover page blurb from Mr. Obama giving prevalence (or platitude) to Niebuhr’s influence. Post-World War II, Niebuhr’s concern was to caution against overstating America’s role in the world. Care must be given, […]
The Vice President is fantastic. If the American voters had a half a brain, they would make him president. But is America exceptional and can it stay that way. And why are the liberals like Obama trying to make the United States of America just ordinary. And is […]
Almost every aspect of the security in Somalia is outsourced to deeply entrenched competing foreign interests of various shades. None of them are accountable to the Somali government. Not even the legally mandated African Union force – AMISOM. Contrary to the noble services that it provided in its […]
In what many describe as a triumphant visit this week to the United States, Pope Francis at one point delivered a dramatic address before world leaders gathered in New York City at the United Nations. His Holiness urged world leaders to take decisive action to protect “the […]
All over the world and all throughout history, humans have celebrated their heroes which includes heroes of the battlefield, heroes of the sports field, heroes of the intellectual field, heroes of the business field and even heroes of the political field. Even today we have added […]
Another failure to learn from history is the only way to describe the foolhardy notion that allowing active duty military personnel to carry a sidearm while on duty at U.S. Military facilities could endanger the lives of personnel on the base. The exact opposite, as with most […]
Four Marines are dead. Gunned down in cold blood by a cowardly terrorist named Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez in Chattanooga, TN. These four Marines will never go home. Four families’ lives are forever changed. America lost four heroes.
Today’s horrific shootings took place at a recruiting center […]
This past week or so has been a little trying for me and my family. I saw first hand how a nation takes care of its own. Oh sure, you may think I am referring to the welfare state. People who get money from the taxpayer to […]
American Sniper is a great book. It explains how a war should be fought and what a real hero looks like. It is easy. Obama is not a hero. He has never put his life on the line and he never will. And the art of fighting a […]
On May 29, 2015 I attended a showing of this excellent film in Houston, Texas. I say excellent because the combination of story telling, cinematography and the cuts from flash forwards to flash backs and the personal details that were included provided for as good a docu-drama […]
Brave, beleaguered Egyptian protesters post-Morsi. Benefitiaries of $1billion in […]
Why do we have Memorial Day?

Only our bumbling Republicans could take the number one issue we have against Obama, losing to Islamic terrorism, and turn it into George W. Bush’s fault. Beginning with Jeb Bush, several Republican presidential candidates said recently they would not have gone into Iraq militarily had they […]
Having debated leftist veterans of the United States Armed Forces, one detail of their ethos is nauseatingly clear: if they served during wartime, they were entitled by proxy to be considered exceptional American citizens. Most overwhelmingly are, and thank God for that. But just because one served his country during Vietnam where scores […]
We just ended our second war not too long ago. The Global War on Terror is officially over. I’m sure some Martini glasses clinked in DC when the bureaucrats were finally able to make the long awaited announcement, followed by pats on one another’s backs at black […]
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 […]
We have our times of great joy and thankfulness that we spend with loved ones close to us. In these times of joy we prize what is important in our lives and for many it is the renewed bonding, friendship and love […]
