I’m at College Point, Queens New York this morning. I’m delivering a load of Gatorade to the local Pepsi distribution center. Extremely narrow streets around this place, and as a result I’ve never come in here where I haven’t done some very serious side walk driving. That’s an accomplishment with a big rig. I have […]

One of the problems that I’ve noticed these last couple of weeks and particularly the last couple of days as regards Syria’s attack on its own citizens  (supposedly, anyway) is a total lack of information about who was being attacked. This seems to me a crucial lack. We are dealing, it seems to me, with […]

What we have additionally in the case of Obama, this time, is a case of liberals outright lying to us to cover their own backsides. Not only is Obama foreign policy a failure, in much the same way and for the same reasons that Jimmy Carter’s foreign policy was a failure, but now Mr. Obama and his people have been caught flat out lying to the American people in a feeble attempt to cover the failure of their worldview and their foreign policy.

My new Pajamas Media editorial deals with what I’ve considered the biggest problem America faces just now in our War on terror… our return to the underlying attitude of the Democrats that brought us the “Gorelick Wall.” The bottom line is that, like the Clinton administration, the Obama administration has approached al-Qaeda’s war on us […]

Doctor Krauthammer today makes a great point about Obama’s response to the Iran situation: …. this incipient revolution is no longer about the election. Obama totally misses the point. The election allowed the political space and provided the spark for the eruption of anti-regime fervor that has been simmering for years and awaiting its moment. […]
