  • US fuming over Israeli criticism of Kerry

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration pushed back strongly Monday at a torrent of Israeli criticism over Secretary of State John Kerry's latest bid to secure a cease-fire with Hamas, accusing some in Israel of launching a "misinformation campaign" against the top American diplomat. "It's simply not the way partners and allies treat each other," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. Her comments were echoed by the White House, where officials said they were disappointed by Israeli reports that cast Kerry's efforts to negotiate a cease-fire as more favorable to Hamas. "Israel has no better friend, no stronger defender than...

    On his Monday radio program, conservative talk show host Mark Levin reacted to President Barack Obama's remarks about football and not allowing his son to play football if he had one: "So he wouldn't let his son play football -– this pretend son that he has," Levin said. "It's like Jimmy Stewart with the pretend rabbit. Well let me tell you something Mr. President -- I wouldn't let my son be an ambassador under you. I’d much rather that he played football."

But the outward signs of peace between the prime minister, Sheikh Hasina of the Awami League, and the opposition leader, Khaleda Zia of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), mean little. A European diplomat says he has just sent two cables to his capital. The first discusses the growing chances of the League’s defeat in elections due by next January.

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Saturday night that President Barack Obama has jeopardized U.S. national security by nominating substandard candidates for key cabinet posts and by degrading the U.S. military. “The performance now of Barack Obama as he staffs up the national security team for the second term is dismal,” Cheney said in comments to about 300 members of the Wyoming Republican Party. Cheney, a Wyoming native, said it was vital to the nation’s national security that “good folks” hold the positions of secretary of state, CIA director and secretary of defense. “Frankly, what he has...

    Americans, Gallup tells us, admire Hillary Clinton more than any other woman in the world -- again. This latest accolade marks the 17th time Gallup has found Clinton to be the Most Admired Woman (MAW?) since she became first lady nearly 20 years ago. Only Eleanor Roosevelt (13 MAWs) comes close. Only Mother Teresa (1995 and 1996) and Laura Bush (2001) have interrupted Clinton's winning streak, and even then, Clinton came in second. And therein lies America's cosmic flaw. A country that could time and again embrace Hillary Clinton as its MAW has lost its mind or its memory or...

However, today I am shamed as an American by our crop of leaders (who can’t lead) who are daily embarrassing this once-great nation.

    The U.S. military did not get involved during the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, last month because officials did not have enough information about what was going on before the attack was over, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said Thursday. At a Pentagon news briefing, Panetta said there was no "real-time information" to be able to act on, even though the U.S. military was prepared to do so. "You don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on," Panetta said. "(We) felt we could not put forces at risk in that situation." A defense official...

    It was all psychology Thursday night at the vice presidential debate. The unspoken issue—about which nary a word was spoken—was really, in my opinion, all that mattered. Sigmund Freud himself would have enjoyed watching. Coming on the heels of a presidential debate in which challenger Mitt Romney outdistanced President Obama, leaving him to chase Romney in the polls, the bulk of the American electorate really only had one question left: If Mitt Romney were, tragically, to die in office, would Paul Ryan be able to take over and be a credible president of the United States? That unconscious question—which I...

    According to the latest Gallup poll, Mitt Romney has leapt from a significant deficit to a 2-point lead in the wake of his widely lauded Presidential debate performance. He is simultaneously closing in on Obama’s lead in several swing states. This dramatic change may turn out to be even more meaningful when viewed through a lens that properly values the psychological power of incumbency. A shift by the electorate away from an incumbent president has more in common with divorce than it does with opting against a second date. When Americans bond with a president for more than three years,...

    I have written in this space before that President Obama is the first incumbent since Martin Van Buren in 1840 to seek reelection without running on his record. He is also the first incumbent in my time as an observer, which goes back to the Eisenhower reelection campaign in 1956, who is practically avoiding the principal issue of the campaign. Given the parameters within which his reelection campaign has been operating, only the utter incompetence of the Republican nominee could have failed to make the first debate a challenging evening for the president. The campaign to date of the nominee,...

    Should Hillary Clinton resign as secretary of state due to the WikiLeaks revelations? My friend Jack Shafer at Slate makes a good case. His reason: Clinton, like predecessor Condoleezza Rice, signed orders instructing U.S. foreign service officers to spy on the diplomats of other nations. Cables went out under her name telling State Department officials overseas to collect the fingerprints, facial images, DNA, and iris scans of African leaders, to obtain passwords, credit card numbers, and frequent flyer accounts used by foreign diplomats, and to gather private information on United Nations officials, including Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

In a wide-ranging policy book none-too-subtly titled "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness," Romney says the Democrat's efforts to reconcile with foreign powers, Muslims and others angered by President George W. Bush's administration have weakened the country's stature instead of enhancing it.

    Democratic postmortems on Barack Obama’s disappointing first year in the Oval Office have emphasized, as the president himself did, difficulties inherited from “the last eight years.” Republicans, for their part, credit public opposition to Obama’s overreaching policies. But a full explanation goes much deeper. Obama is failing because he has turned the constitutional functions of the presidency upside down. The 2010 State of the Union address nicely summed up Obama’s topsy-turvy approach to the presidency. He pressed for a new jobs bill, more domestic spending, and health care nationalization. He attributed his political setbacks not to broad opposition to his...

    AG Eric Holder said he knows we are at war during his November 18, 2009 testimony before the Senate Judicary Committee concerning his decision to prosecute Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the other four 9/11 conspirators in federal court. Unfortunately, Mr. Holder does not walk that talk. (See video of Fox News report here.) Attorney General Eric Holder says he made the decision to charge the Christmas Day terror suspect in the civilian system with no objection from all the other relevant departments of the government. In a letter to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, the attorney general says that the...

    From the AP: Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday he made the decision to charge the Christmas Day terror suspect in the civilian system with no objection from all the other relevant departments of the government. In a letter to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, the attorney general wrote that the FBI told its partners in the intelligence community on Christmas Day and again the next day that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab would be charged criminally... "No agency supported the use of law of war detention for Abdulmutallab, and no agency has since advised the Department of Justice that an alternative...

    WASHINGTON -- Turns out Hillary Rodham Clinton was right all along. During the nastiest battle of the entire 2008 presidential race, she aired an alarming television commercial warning voters that they would come to regret nominating Barack Obama to occupy the White House. If -- in a national security crisis -- the "red phone" rang at 3 a.m., the ad intoned, Obama would not hear it.

    Here is video of ABC News' Jake Tapper today challenging White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on his constant whining and blaming of Republicans for not supporting the Obama Agenda. After listening to this again from Gibbs, Tapper said: "But isn't the whole point of being President and controlling the House and Senate to 'man up' and make these tough decisions whether or not it costs you at the ballot box in November?" Everyone knows that the Democrats could have passed their entire agenda without a single Republican vote for a full year. It is the radical nature of the...
  • Rush Plants the Seed: Obama's Instability

    Rush Limbaugh, during today's show, seemed to plant the first seeds of doubt regarding Barack Obama's mental fitness to serve as President of the United States of America. Rush commented several times during his program on his perception of Obama's mental 'instability.' I anticipate that in the days and weeks ahead Rush will begin to flesh out the idea that Obama's fragile, narcissistic psyche has been irreparably damaged by profound political changes during his first year in office leaving him mentally unfit to serve. Merely a personal observation with which I'm sure many will disagree,... but one that may bear...

    Here is video of President Barack Obama's nominee to head the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) - Errol Southers - saying he worries about the danger posed by groups that are "Christian-Identity Oriented." He does not explain what he means by that. Southers also mentions groups that are "anti-Government," "anti-abortionist," and with a "survivalist mentality." He never mentions any concern for groups or individuals that have a strong "Muslim-identity," even though virtually ever terror attack - or attempted terror attack - has been carried out by Islamic Jihadists. And President Obama thinks someone like Southers is going to make us safer....

    I just heard this on Fox. Napolitano saying she was surprised by the determination of Al Qaeda. As one commentator said. It's like she hasn't read a newspaper in a decade. THE u.s. IS IN SERIOUS DANGER WITH THIS BUNCH IN CONTROL.

    In his opening remarks on Fox News Sunday this morning, Bill Kristol set forth a stinging indictment of the Obama admin's handling of the war on terror. His two-minute monologue amounted to a devastating bill of particulars: * It was a mistake to treat Abul Mutallab as a criminal defendant rather than as an enemy combatant: "Mr. Brennan [Obama's top counter-terrorism adviser who appeared earlier] said to you that we're very worried that there're other Abdul Mutallabs out there. This Abdul Mutallab was out there for four months. He might know who the others are. He might know their names....

    Barack Obama’s Vulnerabilities Will Get Us All Killed Erick Erickson January 2, 2010 “At the end of the first year of Barack Obama’s administration, there’s something moving in the shadows of Mount Doom. It wasn’t there while George Bush was in charge.” Within twenty-four hours of the terrorist trying to blow up the plane, the White House was giving briefings by a “Senior Administration Official” who most likely was Obama, Axelrod, or Jarrett, pointing out that the terrorist watch list was created by the Bush administration.Then the White House Counsel’s Office sent out a memo demanding any and all documentation...
