Dick Cheney Tries to Revise History regarding Iraq

iraq iran Contrary to Dick Cheney, invading Iraq took a stable country under a toothless dictator, and transformed it to a haven for terrorists. According to Bonnie Kristian at Rare.US, Dick Cheney is going on the news shows claiming that it was good we invaded Iraq: “No, Dick Cheney, you weren’t right about Iraq.” Naturally, this is coming up because Cheney is beating the war drums for Iran. So the question arises, why should we trust him about Iran when he was so wrong on Iraq? Cheney says Read more [...] Continue reading →

Making the War on ISIS Look Good

pentagon The military’s Central Command has been writing reports on the war on ISIS that include positive conclusions that aren’t justified by the information. Jason Ditz reports for Antiwar.com, “Centcom Skewed ISIS War Intel To Be More Upbeat.” The perennial positivity of all public Pentagon assessments on the war against ISIS, despite major, glaring losses on the ground, has been a matter of no small controversy for awhile, and has also successfully kept the elected officials who are on the Read more [...] Continue reading →

Singer Accuses TSA of Sexual Assault; TSA Disagrees

tsa-checkpoint Morrisey claims a TSA agent grabbed his private areas for no real reason, but that is business as usual. Morrisey is a famous pop singer who claimes he was sexually assaulted by a TSA officer. He wrote about the incident on his blog: On leaving the US on 27 July I flew from San Francisco International Airport to London on flight BA 284. At 2:30 in the afternoon I went through the usual airport security procedure including the stand-up 'scanner', and all was well - no bleeps and nothing unusual. Before Read more [...] Continue reading →

New Book Provides Further Evidence US made ISIS

isis killing xians The US made ISIS in order to destroy Syria’s secular dictatorship, without caring about the Christians or others they knew would be raped, tortured, and murdered. I’ve already posted about how the US made ISIS by funding terrorists. We have seen how officials try to evade obvious questions when they are posed by reporters (which they do all too seldom). But now there is a new book out which documents more of the actions involved in taking a declining group, Al Qaeda in Iraq, and nourishing Read more [...] Continue reading →

Journalist Asks the Right Question: Did the Federal Government Support ISIS?

syria iraq isis How could anyone following the news over the last few years claim the government did not support ISIS? Of course they have to call it ISIL, and then speak the letters rather than simply pronouncing it as a name: I - S - I - L. But it is great to see a government bureaucrat start to squirm. This video is, as far as I can tell, floating around without any written commentary. The reference to Bashar al-Assad's "lack of legitimacy" is insane. The main reason for his "lack of legitimacy" Read more [...] Continue reading →

Jeb Bush: "Let's Help Free Syrian Army" What Could Go Wrong?

syria iraq isis Isn’t the Free Syrian Army simply the U.S. supplies and weapons acquisition unit for ISIS? It blew my mind when I watched the foreign policy debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama in 2012 that Romney pretended we had natural allies in Syria that we could support to overthrow Bashar al-Assad who “had to go.” It was completely delusional thinking and it wasn’t any different from what Barack Obama was already doing. Back then, Mark Horne pointed out that people who beat their enemies Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Foreign Policy Shell Game and Iran

iraq iran First of all let me say this, “The Iranian leaders are bad people”. But that’s also my opinion of the Chinese leaders, Russian leaders, and frankly, the European technocrats too. I’m equal opportunity when it comes to central states and foreign policy. I do not like any of them. But a question keeps rolling around in the back of my mind, “Why does the United States hate Iran so much?” Really it doesn’t make any sense. I know, I know, they were chanting death to America the other day. Read more [...] Continue reading →

Fast and Furious Armed ISIS Terrorist who Attacked in Garland, Texas

fastandfurious One of the terrorists killed in a shootout had bought a handgun through the Secret government program, Fast and Furious. From the Chicago Tribune: “Assailant in Garland, Texas, attack bought gun in 2010 under Fast and Furious operation.” Five years before he was shot to death in the failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, Nadir Soofi walked into a suburban Phoenix gun shop to buy a 9-millimeter pistol. At the time, Lone Wolf Trading Co. was known among gun smugglers for selling illegal Read more [...] Continue reading →

Not All Muslims Have Attempted Murder

islamic state A Conservative points out that accusing all Muslims of murder is as reasonable as accusing all confederate flag bearers of racism. Mark Alexander at the Patriot Post wrote a helpful essay that exposed both the problems with Islam and the problem with false conclusions about Islam in the case of the Chatanooga killings. He wrote, in part: The Leftmedia is still searching for a motive in the attack on military personnel here in Chattanooga last week — an Islamist assault we covered in “Obama: Read more [...] Continue reading →

Former Dem Presidential Candidate Calls for Prison Camps for the "Radicalized"

prison Bill Clinton’s former general wants prison camps throughout Europe and the U.S. Here is Wesley Clark: He is quoted at Breitbart.com: Well, we’ve got to identify the people who are most likely to be radicalized. We’ve got to cut this off at the beginning. There are always a certain number of young people who are alienated. They don’t get a job. They lost a girlfriend. Their family doesn’t feel happy here. And we can watch the signs of that and there are members of the community Read more [...] Continue reading →

No ISIS link? Try Islam!

tea party terrorists The headlines are saying that officials are finding no ISIS link in the case of the murders committed by Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez. Really? I realize that lots of Muslims don’t commit acts of violence. Claiming a substantial link between Islam and terrorism or violence does not, in any way, imply that all Muslims are guilty. But it is still blind and dangerous to refuse to actually deal with Islam as an increased risk. Statistics are not lying. It is especially hypocritical when there is Read more [...] Continue reading →

Franklin Graham Calls for Completely Closing the Border to Islam

franklin graham The position of Franklin Graham is simply not rational or conservative. This post from Franklin Graham came across my Facebook feed, and I’m pretty appalled by it. Four innocent Marines (United States Marine Corps) killed and three others wounded in ‪#‎Chattanooga yesterday including a policeman and another Marine—all by a radical Muslim whose family was allowed to immigrate to this country from Kuwait. We are under attack by Muslims at home and abroad. We should stop all immigration Read more [...] Continue reading →
