    During the 2nd Presidential Debate on Oct. 16, 2012, President Obama was indignant at the suggestion that anyone on his team would play politics with Benghazi. Recent reports suggest that talking points were altered to remove references to al Qaeda and prior attacks in Benghazi, both of which might have left the State Dept. open to criticism.

    Newt Gingrich, appearing with Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen on POLITICO Live's Driving the Day this morning, defended Rep. Michele Bachmann for asking questions about the Muslim Brotherhood - and declined to hit his former presidential rival for raising questions about Hillary Rodham Clinton aide Huma Abedin. "There weren’t allegations, there was a question," Gingrich told VandeHei and Allen, adding, "the question ought to be asked across the board" about the Muslim Brotherhood's relationship with and goals in the U.S. are. When it was pointed out to him that other Republicans, such as Sen. John McCain and House Speaker John...

    (CNN) -- WikiLeaks has published a secret U.S. diplomatic cable listing locations abroad that the U.S. considers vital to its national security, prompting criticism that the website is inviting terrorist attacks on American interests. The list is part of a lengthy cable the State Department sent in February 2009 to its posts around the world. The cable asked American diplomats to identify key resources, facilities and installations outside the United States "whose loss could critically impact the public health, economic security, and/or national and homeland security of the United States." The diplomats identified dozens of places on every continent, including...

    This nation is face-to-face with disarmament by entitlement. On the morning of Jan. 19, the American national debt stood at $12,276,477,277,649.25, according to the US Treasury. Call it $12 trillion, close to a year’s worth of national economic output. Every US citizen—man, woman, and child—owed an average of $39,900 to the nation’s creditors. By the time you read this, the figure will be higher, since the debt grows by $4 billion per day. In fact, US indebtedness, which was $5.7 trillion in 2000, is expected to hit a towering $21 trillion in this decade. This can’t go on, yet it...

    How much information is too much information when a nation is at war to publicly disclose about our on-going attempts to achieve a resolute victory over terrorists? Congressman Keith Ellison, a relatively unknown figure from Minneapolis, Minnesota, was elected to the U.S. Congress and took office January 4, 2007. Ellison is a close friend and political confidante of Democratic presidential candidate, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois. Ellison lays claim to being the first African-American from his state and the first Muslim to be seated in Congress. He was accepted by Americans, but he has not yet accepted America as his...

    "That needs to change" was Oprah Winfrey's reply to Nan Talese of Doubleday, publisher of "A Million Little Pieces," after James Frey's "memoir" was exposed as a tissue of lies. Doubleday had tried to escape responsibility by saying that publishers don't fact-check nonfiction books. To President George W. Bush's approval of the $6.5 billion sale of terminals at six of our most important ports to the United Arab Emirates, Americans are shouting, "That needs to change." We are fed up with the post-Sept. 11 failure (i.e., the refusal) of the Bush administration to secure our borders and ports. Bush's defense...
  • On John Bolton - It's What He Said In 2001 !! (one of the best arguments on the need for BOLTON!)

    What Under Secretary of State John R. Bolton said publicly in 2001 could explain the Left’s 2005 opposition to his confirmation to a post at The United Nations. He’s a Constitutionalist. The brouhaha over Bolton is puzzling at first. But the rat in the woodpile is often found when you think about Liberty and rights of Americans. That’s the scent trail to follow, and this trail stinks, because it sees a furtherance of rights of Americans being attacked from abroad. Liberals have fairly good memories, and they hold a grudge. They’re patient in many respects and they take the hand-off...

    U.N. panel to frame guidelines on legality of pre-emptive strike By Heather J. Carlson THE WASHINGTON TIMES From the World section Members of an international panel studying United Nations' operations say the group hopes to lay down clear rules declaring when it is legal for a nation to use pre-emptive military force in its own defense. The issue grows out of the international controversy over the Bush administration's decision to invade Iraq without a final U.N. Security Council resolution explicitly authorizing the war, said panel member Gareth Evans, a former foreign minister of Australia. "I expect the panel to be...

    Bush Immigration Plan Borders On Treason By Chuck Baldwin Food For Thought From The Chuck Wagon January 9, 2003 President George W. Bush wants to give some eight to ten million illegal aliens, most of them from Mexico, legal status. The plan would legalize these aliens as "temporary workers," which would allow them to work freely in the United States without fear of deportation. The plan is so disastrous to our country's well being and so fraught with potential risk to our country's security that the plan should be regarded as bordering treason! Already, more than ten percent of Mexico's...

    "US Threat Perceptions and Security Concerns" Posted: 2003-06-23 Today many foreign policy experts are reassessing the threats to American security in the post 9-11 world. The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon brought America’s attention to terrorism, but threats originating from rouge regimes and traditional states still remain. This paper will show that global terrorism is the greatest short-term threat to US security, but that it is not the only threat. Rouge regimes also pose a serious threat to American security. And in the long-term, the most dangerous threat to US security is any technology or event...

    Vice President Dick Cheney's speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars on the need to end Saddam Hussein's terrorist regime in Iraq was a much-needed dose of cold, hard reality. Those who are wringing their hands over the possibility of a pre-emptive strike against Iraq seem not to remember that there has already been a pre-emptive strike against Iraq — two decades ago. The Israelis bombed a nuclear facility that Saddam Hussein was building at that time — much to the consternation and condemnation of so-called world opinion. But many an American soldier may have come back alive from the...
