    British Intelligence agency MI 5 said that they believe that they know the identity of the so called Jihadi John, the man captured on video beheading three Western men for crimes against ISIS. MI 5 is keeping the details under wraps and says that they are waiting to gather more solid intelligence before they any possible retaliation. After beheading another journalist, Steven Sotloff, ISIS is threatening to continue executing Westerners they hold captive. The execution was performed by 'Jihadi John' who spoke with a London accent. This brings home the danger facing western countries with the growing number of Muslim...

    Robert Kagan had an excellent piece in the Wall Street Journal a couple of weeks ago. Titled “Power Failure” it discussed the parallels between the aftermath of WW I and today. In it he talks about the feeling in the US and the UK after WWI that war itself had seemingly become impossible. Then as now, Americans and Britons solipsistically believed that everyone shared their disillusionment with war. They imagined that because war was horrible and irrational, as the Great War had surely demonstrated, no sane people would choose it. That the US and Europe would pare back their military...

    Ever notice how some things seize Barack Obama emotionally more than others? Notice how Obama listens to some more than others? Obama's speech yesterday was seen by some as a "surrender." “By making such a point about ‘no ground troops,’ the President did two very bad things. First, he reduced the enemy’s uncertainty about our intentions. Second, he gave a global impression that he needed to promise ‘no ground troops’ to the American people because he thinks that otherwise his political position is so weak that he couldn’t get support for an air war. This is a bad mistake: it...

    On this somber anniversary the NY Times has the entire above the fold section of the front page devoted to Barack Obama. Among them is the expected sycophantic plug from Gail Collins: "A Man with a Plan" But then we come to a article that purports to be serious but either was written by a 12 year old or someone for whom history began on January 21, 2009- Mark Landler. He opens: President Obama on Wednesday authorized a major expansion of the military campaign against rampaging Sunni militants in the Middle East, including American airstrikes in Syria and the deployment...

    Franchising has been nothing short of a spectacular success for America. From restaurants to hotels to auto shops to plumbers, franchising generates hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue each year and employs millions of people across the country. Modern franchising as we know it was created a century and a half ago by Isaac Singer, an inventor, innovator and the founder of the Singer Sewing Machine Co. He had figured out how to manufacture and sell his sewing machines in enormous quantities but he couldn’t service them across the vast country. So he created a franchising operation… whereby he...

    Barack Obama seems finally on his way to developing some sort of strategy to deal with ISIS. Obama has been criticized by both sides of the aisle for informing ISIS that he had no strategy to deal with them. Most know by now that Obama once labelled ISIS the "JV", then tried to argue he didn't say it. The lie is so egregious that even Politifact hammered Obama for it. Barack Obama is careening from one foreign policy blunder to another. After he was elected Obama believed that his Apologizing for America Tour would solve everything. It didn't. Then he decided...

    Barack Obama voted "present" 129 times in the Illinois State Senate. He did it to preserve his political capital and dodge having to be visible in unpopular events. He'd wait for someone to take the bullets and then when the dust settled Obama would rise from the dust and assume the popular side. That is what is happening right now. Problem is, Obama is the President. There's no one else to wait for here. democrats are a disaster right now. They aren't just not on the same page, they're not in the same book.

    This makes for a pathetic LoL of the day: The Institute for Science and International Security is having some acronym woes. The highly regarded nonprofit, non-partisan outfit, which seeks to stop the spread of nukes to other countries and to terrorists, posted a plea Tuesday on its Web site under the heading “Needless Collateral Damage.” It asked that everyone please stop using its acronym, ISIS, “as a shortening for the name of the jihadist terrorist group named, in transliterated Arabic, the Al-Dawla Al-Islamiya fi al-Iraq wa al-Sham.” Sure, that would be really snappy: The “ADAIFAIWAAS,” or maybe just DIFI.

Here's an accounting of how he's handled weapons: Fast and FuriousObama sent 2000 automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels LibyaEager to show he is a tough guy, Obama toppled Moammar Gaddafi without seeking Congress's approval.

A number of possible identities have been suggested by British media although sources on both sides of the Atlantic have told Reuters that there was little likelihood of the British government naming the suspect imminently. On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that Foley and at least 3 other captives are known to have been waterboarded: At least four hostages held in Syria by the Islamic State, including an American journalist who was recently executed by the group, were waterboarded in the early...

    As the facts of the shooting in Ferguson Missouri leaked the air went out of the racism balloon. The race baiters desperately needed a canard- something else upon which to hang their restive hats. Thus The Reverend Tawana Sharpton, Obama's "go to guy" on race, drew a new race card out of the deck: The police caused the riots. The Rev. Al Sharpton used his eulogy for slain 18-year-old Michael Brown on Monday to criticize the conduct of law enforcement in Ferguson, Missouri, and to call for America to “deal with” the kind of policing that has plagued the community...

    After a while it becomes painfully obvious and it can no longer be ignored. Barack Obama is first and foremost the President of Black America. Barack Obama sent a convoy to the funeral of Michael Brown. It was a delegation of three officials. He sent three fewer to the funeral of Margaret Thatcher: The White House sent three officials to attend Monday's funeral for Michael Brown in St. Louis -- three more than it sent for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's funeral last year. The administration's handling of the Brown funeral already has started to raise comparisons between the...

    In less time than it takes to blink an eye the shooting of Michael Brown was framed with a racist portrait. For Auriel Brown (no relation to Michael), many of those "uncomfortable" discussions have taken place inside her own home, with her 12-year-old son. A former resident of St. Louis, the Wichita, Kan., mother spoke with the CBC’s Keith Boag in Ferguson on Sunday about “The Talk” many black parents are forced to have with their children, particularly their boys. “You let your son know that, 'Hey, the world that you live in — I hate to break it to...

    The Michael Brown shooting was tragic and it was avoidable. The violence that has occurred in Ferguson MO subsequent to the shooting is just ridiculous. Bordering on the insane is the outrage from the left. The eruption of idiocy from the twin volcanos known as the Rev.

    I’ve been told by a black friend that I, as a white person, can’t know the fear that permeates the mind of a black man when they are stopped by a cop, knowing that they can be harassed, arrested or killed simply for the crime of being black. That’s true. I can’t. The truth is, it does happen that innocent black men are sometimes harassed, arrested and even killed by white cops. According to USA today, there were an average of 96 instances of white cops killing black men per year between 2005 & 2012. Author Jim Fisher states that...

    A president’s job is tough. And that goes for any president. Aside from being in charge of an organization that employs millions of people and is responsible for the expenditure of trillions of dollars, he is the Commander in Chief. And it is in that area that no doubt weighs most heavily on presidential shoulders. The decision to send young men into battle where you know for an absolute certainty that some will not return must be an extraordinarily difficult decision to make, even when, as in say the D-day landings or Afghanistan, the clarity of the line between good...

    Perception is everything in international affairs, as in most things human.  Compared to any powerful nation in history, America has prevailed magnificently since WWII as its presence around the world has enabled most of humanity to live in a somewhat subdued degree of peace.  America could not stop all dictators, but its presence and its threat of action imposed a calm where none would have been possible.  Today, a world without American leadership through willful strength, descends into chaos.

    How many times did he say it? Obama to take executive action on immigrationObama to Dems: I'll act with or without CongressObama: I Will Act Without CongressObama says he will overhaul immigration without Congress' help Obama vows to act 'with or without Congress,' takes proposals on the roadAnd then, without warning, Obama finds himself impotent.  It struck without warning. He's gone limp. Presidentile dysfunction. The guy who was boldly going where no Congress would go with him. The guy who was going it alone. The guy who is going to "Let it rip."   has inexplicably and suddenly found himself completely impotent. All of a sudden...

    Rep. Henry Cuellar hoped the immigration mess would not become Obama's Katrina moment. It has. The difference between Bush and Obama is that Bush cared. He might have taken too long to make decisions, but he did care. Obama doesn't care about anything other than himself. As we've noted here, Barack Obama has effectively imposed Martial Law on detention sites which house illegal aliens who are flooding across the border. A member of United States Congress was denied access to Fort Sill and was told he has to make an appointment. Then the administration announced put the hammer down. Among...

    Every school-age child in America is getting a serious dose of what it means to be governed by arrogance. Our school-age children are getting a taste of what an Administration, weaned on hateful communist dicta of Ayers and Alinsky, can ignorantly impose on the population when it has been given the power to do so. Michelle Obama’s personal crusade to find her entry into the history books besides being First Lady, has been to force schools to feed only certain foods to our children through the implementation of meal standards with the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.” This imposition of...

    Barack Obama and democrats in Congress have all but sent up rockets inviting illegals to invade the US. In truth, false messages are being sent to American voters, while the incoming wave of refugees are getting the real message loud and clear. The same Washington Times article includes a quote from an unnamed Administration official who admitted “more than 50 percent of children who illegally cross the border alone will be allowed to remain in the United States.” A 50-50 shot at getting your kid residency plus benefits in the United States looks pretty good to people trapped in the...

    Let's review RFRA: The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, Pub. L. No. 103-141, 107 Stat. 1488 (November 16, 1993), codified at 42 U.S.C. § 2000bb through 42 U.S.C. § 2000bb-4 (also known as RFRA), is a 1993 United States federal law aimed at preventing laws that substantially burden a person's free exercise of their religion. The bill was introduced by Howard McKeon of California and Dean Gallo of New Jersey on March 11, 1993.[1] The bill was signed into law by President Bill Clinton and was passed by a unanimous U.S. House and a near unanimous U.S. Senate with...

    There was a time not so long ago when liberals bristled at what they felt was the over-reach of the Executive branch. NY Times, Jan. 29, 2007 Congress, the Constitution and War: The Limits on Presidential Power But Mr. Cheney told only half the story. Congress has war powers, too, and with 70 percent of Americans now opposed to President Bush’s handling of the war, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll, it is becoming more assertive about them. Congress is poised to pass a resolution denouncing the troop increase. Down the line, Congress may well consider mandatory caps on...

    It's a crisis. Costs are skyrocketing for this faster than anything else. Something has to be done. Health care? No. Education. Educational costs are rising faster than a Delta weather rocket. The ballooning costs of higher education dwarfs the increased costs of health care: We're being drained for educational expenditures- what do we get for it? Less and less. And yet, somehow the United States continues to lag the world in education. This is a lousy return on investment. Let's have a look as to why the costs of education are exploding. 1.

    Go ahead, Obama. Act on your own. I got your red line right here. Prove that you believe yourself a king. Prove that the Constitution means nothing to you. Prove that you really think you're a dictator. Prove you are a Marxist. Prove everything we've said about you is true. Guarantee us a GOP Senate come November. Obama has been threatening America with imperial unilateral action for some time on a number of issues. A number of democrats are threatening America now as well. They want Obama to assume the mantle of emperor. A growing chorus of House Democrats is...

    The reignited war in Iraq is the latest result of a long string of incompetent decisions made by President Barack Obama. His premature decision to withdraw from Iraq left a power vacuum that the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) is happy to fill. ISIS is taking over Iraq with a speed and efficiency reminiscent of the Nazi blitzkrieg across Europe in World War II. Al Jazeera is reporting that ISIS has taken an oil refinery along with an airbase and has also seized the western Anbar town of Rutba, adding that at least 70% of Anbar province...

    Lois Lerner targeted US Sen. Chuck Grassley for an audit- for having done nothing wrong. WASHINGTON (AP) -- Congressional investigators say they uncovered emails Wednesday showing that a former Internal Revenue Service official at the heart of the tea party investigation sought an audit involving a Republican senator in 2012. Now catch this: The emails show former IRS official Lois Lerner mistakenly received an invitation to an event that was meant to go to Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa. Grassley presumably received Lerner's invitation. She "mistakenly" received his invitation? Because G and L are next to each other in the alphabet?...
