Angola declares itself an Islam Free Zone

November 26, 2013

Editor’s Note: In a late breaking update to this story, International Business Times – today, November 26th – claims to have interviewed two members of the Angolan Embassy in Washington, who question the accuracy of the reports in the international media – including from the Moroccan weekly, LaNouvelle Tribune, that Angola has banned Islam.  Confusing […]

“I Said I Was Sorry!”

November 4, 2013

Everyone’s witnessed the insincere, cynical style of apology from one side of it or the other, or both. In childhood, maybe your parents caught you being rude to a brother or sister or  playmate. To correct your behavior and smooth out the wrinkle in the relationship, they told you – “O.K., I want you to apologize […]

Tears Of A Clown

I’m sorry to have to come across as a cruel hearted fellow (nah, I’m not really sorry), but, as we go forward with the series of biblical plagues emanating from the Obama administration and the Democrats in Congress and I hear sniveling, I’m going to start asking people in a rather direct (translate – rude) […]

Validation Of Valor

Just yesterday I heard the story of retired Army Captain William Swenson and his late in coming award of the Medal of Honor, earned in a tense combat mission, in Afghanistan in 2009, judged by many, to be one of the most, if not the most intense ever in that region. Because the outline of […]

Obama’s Insane Clown Posse

September 13, 2013

Fascist governments make for strange bedfellows. The fact of the matter, however, is that none of the ‘bedfellows’ we’re going to be hearing from and looking at here, are in any way strange to one another. They are all birds of the same feather that just happen to have a different consonant after their name. […]

Obama’s Syrian IPO – Is It A Good Investment?

September 4, 2013

There is an expression in the financial world, in the form of a required disclaimer in advertisements for securities, such as in Mutual fund prospectus. “Past results are no indicator of future performance”.  There is a fair degree of common sense in that, when applied to the science or discipline of economics as it relates […]

Chapter 322 – That Dog Won’t Wag

September 2, 2013

Obama is consistent.  You’ve got to give it to him on that.  He consistently attempts to subvert the Constitution, gets away with whatever he can and pushes the rest as far as it will go and then lies about the nature of the failed attempt. It’s tiresome at this point, but his audacity seems to […]

Editor’s Note: Today’s Guest Editorial comes from Mr. Youssef M. Ibrahim, of the Gatestone Institute. Mr. Ibrahim is a respected subject matter specialist on Middle East matters, and as you will see – he knows the lay of the land in Egypt to a high degree of expertise. In reading his report, I was pleased […]

The Day Of Rage Comes With A Pricetag

As I write, the number of dead – 800, and injured in Egypt due to the military’s response to civil unrest is growing by the hour. Reports coming from the legacy media, are attributing the deaths to what they characterize as a brutal military crackdown. This has prompted some journalists to put forward the proposition […]

John Kerry, the Frustrated Elitist

August 14, 2013

There are too many fools and too little time. That being the case, I still have been neglecting new Secretary of State John Heinz – pardon me, John Kerry.  He’s made a lot of noteworthy statements in his career – but outside of his treacherous testimony before the Fulbright Committee, where he supplied the Vietcong […]
