    This week the world received a wake-up call when the Islamic State seized control of Ramadi and Palmyra in Syria. Obama’s so-called JV team just made military forces abandoned the capital of Iraq’s largest province handing a defeat to team Obama’s strategy to defeat the extremist group. Not stopping to celebrate victory, ISIS forces are heading east to attack retreating Iraqi forces. While Iraq talks about gathering pro-government forces the Islamic State is heading to Fallujah to set up a launching point for Baghdad. The world was shocked when the Islamic State militants captured the ancient Syrian town of Palmyra....

    It has long been suspected America is on the downside of history; often a self-inflicted spiral delivered by the hand of incompetence, corruption or irreverence. That being said, I cannot ignore a fundamental truth that is at the very heart of the rhetoric dividing our communities and destroying our nation. The real reason there is such a high degree of cynicism and distrust along racial lines is because of the unpleasant realities people either completely ignore, carefully avoid or foolishly justify. Call them clues or outright statistical proofs; just know they are the symptoms of our country’s impending peril. Despite...

    1.) Progressive Ideology ‘Dehumanizes The Population’ Anthony Daniels, who uses the pen name, Theodore Dalrymple, says the West is “too weak-willed,” “accepts obvious untruths” and “treats people as objects.” In a 28-minute video interview with The Daily Caller, he says “the intellectual dishonesty of the West is the greatest threat – we can’t say what we really think.” Dalrymple, based on his work in British prisons, is a critic of “determinism” — the dominant progressive theory that minimizes personal responsibility and portrays people as forced, by their circumstances, to behave as they do. This theory, Dalrymple says, “dehumanizes the population.”...

    Will someone please inform our so-called President it's not 1860 and that neither him or Michelle Obama have ever been slaves. Even at the height of slavery during the Antebellum period, less than 2% of the population were slave owners; which by the way, included black Americans amongst their infamous ranks. This of course is omitting the trivial facts African tribes sold their brethren into bondage for everyday trinkets and that nearly 400,000 white men died to procure their freedom. I'm also guessing our myopic pastor of prejudice forgot that the KKK was specifically forged as the terrorist arm of...

They stole passports and other ID-documents from average Westerners and are using them as travel documents.

If nothing is done, it’s only a matter of time before these genocidal maniacs commit a massive terrorist attack in the West. And with massive I mean: a second 9/11.

    In the latest chapter of the left’s ongoing campaign to immortalize the grandfather clause of social justice, but more specifically to compensate America along racial lines, comes the politically convenient creation of “White Privilege”. Because the word “racism” obviously doesn’t denote enough singular intent to indict white America as the sole purveyors of hate, victimization has now evolved into blaming the pale subjects of suburbia as the greatest impetus for urban crime, poverty, civil unrest, and societal division. If “White Privilege” is truly designed to infer advantage or favoritism, then why did I grow up in a blue collar home,...

On the back of a foreign policy triumph of the “Arab Spring” (in scare quotes because it was neither Arab not spring; rather it was trading a set of strong-man dictators for a worse cabal of death-loving terrorists) and Osama bin Laden’s death, Americans were duped into believing the Left had something to contribute to U.S. interests.

Six officers, including a lieutenant and a sergeant, have been suspended after the incident. Gray suffered a spinal injury and died after riding in a police transport van that made several stops. On Thursday, Baltimore’s police officials said they turned over their initial report to prosecutors — a day earlier than expected.

    Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog With help from 80 years of self-described “progressives,” Obama is now waging the biggest war against medical marijuana of any president in history Anyone who has been following the self-described “progressive” politicians since FDR should not be surprised at Obama’s war against medical marijuana.Obama’s war against medical marijuana is a direct result of the policies of the self-described “progressives” in the White House, Congress, and the U.S. Supreme Court, going all the way back to FDR’s New Deal.During the Great Depression, while millions of Americans were hungry, the self-described “progressives” who controlled the federal government passed...

    Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog Wikipedia’s “Barack Obama” article violates Wikipedia’s “Neutral point of view” policy Wikipedia’s “Neutral point of view” policy states:“All encyclopedic content on Wikipedia must be written from a neutral point of view (NPOV), which means representing fairly, proportionately, and, as far as possible, without bias, all of the significant views that have been published by reliable sources on a topic.” Wikipedia’s “Barack Obama” article includes a section called “Cultural and political image.” According to Wikipedia’s “Neutral point of view” policy, this section should contain both positive and negative things. However, almost everything in the section is positive....

    In less than two years the citizens of the United States will elect a president. Two centuries have witnessed the election of honest and patriotic men, some having been called upon to serve during times of great national hardship. Many of America’s presidents have achieved a record of which they can be proud. Until now. Barack Obama has exposed the United States and the American people to unnecessary danger. He has taken it upon himself to apologize to our enemies for what he believes to be the nation’s sins and shortcomings. Such are the arrogant and reprehensible acts of a...

    Not even a lifeline could have helped her . . . There was a telling moment on today's Morning Joe when Joe Scarborough challenged April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks to cite some of President Obama's foreign-policy successes. Ryan was reduced to replying "that's kind of tough. Hmm, that's a tough one . . . I have to really ponder that." View the video here.

    If there was any remaining doubt at all about who’s side Obama is on, this should eliminate it.  An Iranian journalist who previously managed Hassan Rouhani’s public relations defected to the West during the nuclear talks in Lausanne, Switzerland. Amir Hossein Motaghi: “The US negotiating team R mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf" http://t.co/BkOlJvl8GI— Haya Eytan (@TeachESL) March 29, 2015 Amir Hossein Motaghi was an editor for the Iran Student Correspondents Association.  To remove any patina of a “free press” (if anyone may still believe Iran’s press is free) in Iran, Motaghi said, “There are a number of people attending on the...

    On March 24th, Coach is Right published—“The Obama Administration’s Operation ‘Choke Point’ now in the open”. That piece is currently available on the CiR site under Recent Posts. On Monday, Richard Manning, Director of Communications for Americans for Limited Government, said this of the Obama Administration: “Their intent is to create a government sanctioned means of driving private industry out of the business of providing payday loans.” Peter Barden, of the Online Lenders Association agrees that what the Obama Administration is doing is outside its legal authority. Manning was referring to a particular, ongoing use of Operation Choke Point, a...

    Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s announcement Monday that he will run for president has Donald Trump, the ladies on “The View,” and others in the birther crowd questioning Cruz’s eligibility to be president.Born in Alberta, Canada in 1970, Cruz is the son of an American mother and Cuban father. Anticipating these questions, Cruz released his birth certificate in 2013 and officially renounced his dual Canadian citizenship in 2014.This isn’t the first time a candidate’s eligibility has been questioned—the issue dogged President Obama in 2008, George Romney in 1967, and President Chester Arthur in 1880. But is there any merit in...

    President Obama’s Social Security numbers do not verify he even is a U.S. Citizen. A mismatch, two differing numbers at least, an imagined flight by a 15 year old from Hawaii to Connecticut to apply in person, and other anomalies are causing confusion yet again over the true identity of the man sitting in America’s Oval Office! A Notice of Mismatch on a Social Security Administration (SSA) Records form displays an incongruent match which was somehow sent to the President on 08/17/11. This mismatch refers to ss# 042-68-4425. The case verification number is 2011229111431GY. (1) The form contains a chilling...
