  • Hey, Obama, how hard is it to deport a Nazi?

    Obama hit the campaign trail on Friday running. He was in top shape. The American Mirror reported, "Obama refers to himself 102 times during 64-minute speech." And Obama had a new straw man to slay. Obama said, "How hard can that be? Saying that Nazis are bad." We rid the world of the Nazi threat 74 years ago. So it is pretty easy to call Nazis bad. Deporting them takes courage, morals, and brains. I know that because President Trump just deported one that Obama refused to deport for eight years, and Bush 43 failed to deport for four years....

    At the same time that localities across the country are in the process of erasing monuments to Confederates and slave-owners, New York City is preparing to honor a black man who ordered the murder of every white man, woman, and child under his control, resulting in 3,000 to 5,000 race homicides. Seth Barron reports at City Journal: In New York City, street co-namings – in which a thoroughfare takes on an additional, ceremonial name in honor of a distinguished figure – rarely generate much fuss, and their approval is typically pro forma.  But yesterday, a city council committee voted to co-name...

    The final hearing at a United Nations war crimes tribunal was dramatically halted Wednesday when a former Bosnian Croat military chief claimed to have taken poison.Slobodan Praljak yelled, “I am not a war criminal!” and appeared to drink from a small bottle, seconds after judges reconfirmed his 20-year prison sentence for involvement in a campaign to drive Muslims out of a would-be Bosnian Croat ministate in Bosnia in the early 1990s. …Slobodan Praljak, 72, tilted back his head and took a gulp from a flask or glass as the judge read out the verdict.“I just drank poison,” he said....

The Yankee guns fired their first shells on July 20, and within a few days, Confederate newspapers began reporting...

    WASHINGTON John McCain is making it very clear that he isnt just going to go along with everything President Trump proposes, despite the fact they are both Republicans. The Arizona senator just won a six-year term so he isnt concerned about being re-elected. And just a few days into the new administration, hes showing that he has no problem speaking out against the president. Look, there's no evidence of that and I think that those who allege that have to come up with some substantiation of the claim, McCain said Wednesday on MSNBCs Morning Joe about Trumps claim that...

    Progressives and leftists outpouring of praise for Fidel Castro at his death was to be expected, although it has been more fulsome, tone-deaf, and cloying than I expected. For just a few examples see President Obama, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon. Rational and moral people, however, will rightly ask, How would anyone aware of Castros more than 50 years of human rights abuses mourn the death of a tyrant who was both an intellectual and moral idiot, much less praise his legacy? The Left Loves Collectivism I have a few possible answers....

    As the Civil War seesawed and the Union scored one of its rare early successes, a man met a somber-looking Lincoln at the White House. Trying to cheer the president up, he suggested that the president should be pleased by the latest news from the battle front. Lincoln agreed but then sighed that "nothing touches the tired spot." And he should have had a tired spot. Abraham Lincoln's administration had to deal with the Civil War and its raft of incompetent Union generals; Indian uprisings; an ongoing monetary crisis of epic proportions; and a dozen major foreign issues, including the...

    Russian mercenary Arseniy Pavlov, better known as Motorola, was killed in an explosion in Donetsk, several news agencies reported on Oct. 16. Police in the Kremlin-controlled area were reportedly looking for suspects in the killing. Interfax News Agency, citing a source, said Pavlov was killed when an improvised explosive device detonated in the elevator of his apartment building. Other reports say the Kremlin-backed separatists blame Ukrainian officials for the blast. If his death is confirmed, he becomes the latest in a growing number of assassinations of separatist military leaders in the Donbas. Pavlov was a war hero in the view...

    SAVCHENKO IS FREE... "Nadiya Savchenko has returned to Ukraine and greeted by huge crowds, as well as by their president. Now, her name is known to every Ukrainian elementary school student, most every free person in the world. Meanwhile, our two captives, Yerofeev and Aleksandrow, returned to Russia with their heads bowed down. No one met them in the airport, except their wives. Their names are known only to their colleagues from Putin's GRU (military intelligence). This illustrates the difference between what this war is for Ukrainians and what it is with russians. For them, it is a fight for...

    Abraham Lincoln told an 1864 audience that "the world has never had a good definition of the word 'liberty.'" Different people can define liberty in different, even contradictory ways, so that both sides in a conflict can claim to the mantle of liberty. That was exactly the situation in the Civil War: Slaveholders defined liberty in such a way as to make themselves the guardians of liberty... The South's liberty was the liberty to hold other people as chattel slaves. What the slaveholders called liberty, the North quite rightly called tyranny; namely, the systematic deprivation of the natural rights of...

    Blaine Cooper calls for John McCain to be arrested and tried for treason at town hall meeting Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has come under attack, and rightfully so. He has gone from being a Vietnam Veteran hero to crossing the line, in my opinion and many others, of being a traitor to the Constitution and the United States. I ran across a video of a townhall meeting that apparently took place sometime in September, in which Blaine Cooper called out John McCain on his treason for aiding and abetting the enemy of the United States.

    COLUMBIA, SC (WIS-TV) - At this time in December 150 years ago, Union General William Tecumseh Sherman and his army were advancing on Savannah, leaving a wake of destruction behind. But the true wrath of Sherman's army was being reserved for South Carolina. "He wanted to cripple the Confederacy," said retired University of South Carolina journalism professor Patricia McNeely. Since the campus survived the burning of Columbia, the Horseshoe was an appropriate place for our interview. "He wanted them to give up fighting. He wanted them to lose faith in their leadership in the Confederacy. But most people have overlooked...

    Professor and political activist Cornel West declared President Barack Obama a war criminal, arguing that his support of Israel and his drone policy make him complicit in the deaths of innocent people. The controversial activist made the comments at a pro-Palestinian rally in Washington, DC on Saturday, according to Talking Points Memo. West began his speech by pointing to the deteriorating situation in Gaza, where more than 1,800 Palestinians and more than 60 Israelis have been killed, criticizing Israels offensive in the region in front of a Free Palestine banner. His comments regarding President Obama begin at around the three-minute...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton retains broad public support for her performance as secretary of state, a sign that President Obamas struggles abroad and Republican attacks over Benghazi have not been a major drag on her reputation. More people blame the White House than they blame the secretary of state, and that strikes me as quite appropriate, said Kori Schake, a former State Department official during the George W. Bush administration. The public admires Secretary Clintons toughness and how much she got out there and tried to do stuff. With many of the Obama administrations foreign policy priorities still unresolved, Clinton has...
