Friend of Fascists

First Obama takes the side of the Palestinians against Israel.  Then, the mullahs against the people of Iran.  Now, the leftist President of Honduras against the Constitution, Supreme Court, and people of Honduras.  Caroline Glick writes, So if Obama’s foreign policy has already failed or is in the process of failing throughout the world, why is he refusing to reassess it? Why, with blood running … Continue reading Friend of Fascists

Some Rude Questions

These questions are rude, politically incorrect, and naive.  But they pop into my brain from time to time, and I honestly don’t know the answers.  Help me out. The Iranian Green Revolution seems to be withering in the face of the mullahs’ brutality.  It’s hard to topple a regime with rocks when it has AK-47s and tanks.  Question: Why haven’t we been arming the Iranian … Continue reading Some Rude Questions

This Deserves a Lot More Attention….

What would you do with Iranian Revolutionary Guard members who kidnapped and murdered American soldiers and then were caught?  I thought so– release them in exchange for dead bodies of British soldiers.  That’s what Obama would do.  Actually, that’s what he has done. Even as the mullahs are terrorizing the Iranian people, the Obama administration is negotiating with an Iranian-backed terrorist organization and abandoning the … Continue reading This Deserves a Lot More Attention….

Our New Nietzschean Overlords

No, despite the Simpsons reference, I do not welcome them.  Nor does Lee Smith, who understands the Nietzschean roots of the Left in its current incarnation, including our President.  (HT: Richard Fernandez.) Fascism was always a movement of the Left.  What is new is that fascism now dominates the Left, in Western nations, at least. I urge you to read the entire article.  Here’s a … Continue reading Our New Nietzschean Overlords

Health Care and the Right to Privacy

David B. Rivkin Jr. and Lee A. Casey present an interesting argument that the right to privacy recognized in such cases as Griswold v. Connecticut and Roe v. Wade rules out government control of health care: If the government cannot proscribe — or even “unduly burden,” to use another of the Supreme Court’s analytical frameworks — access to abortion, how can it proscribe access to … Continue reading Health Care and the Right to Privacy

Obama’s Governance Style

Michael Barone describes Obama’s style of governance—”Dodge facts, skip details, govern Chicago-style”—in characteristically direct and insightful fashion, adumbrating Three Rules of Obama: First, Obama likes to execute long-range strategies but suffers from cognitive dissonance when new facts render them inappropriate. His 2008 campaign was a largely flawless execution of a smart strategy, but he was flummoxed momentarily when the Russians invaded Georgia and when John … Continue reading Obama’s Governance Style

“ABC Self-Nationalizes For Obama”

That’s the headline on the editorial at Investor’s Business Daily, and it seems spot on: This Wednesday, on every show from “Good Morning America” (kicking things off with an interview with the president) to “World News Tonight” (broadcast from the Blue Room) to a prime-time special called “Prescription for America” (and emanating from the East Room), the network will puff the Obama administration’s trillion-dollar plan … Continue reading “ABC Self-Nationalizes For Obama”

Bloodshed in Iran

The Iranian regime has escalated its fight against its own citizens, shooting students and others whether or not they are actually taking part in the protests.  President Obama has finally offered some weak words on the subject.  PowerLine has been speculating about why the President has not spoken out in favor of the protests.  I don’t find any of their explanations credible.  My own take … Continue reading Bloodshed in Iran
