Obama Piles on as Tensions Build With Russia

obamaPen Leave it to President Obama to say the wrong thing at the wrong moment. Following Turkey's shooting down of a Russian plane on its way to attack ISIS in Syria, Obama said Tuesday at a press conference with French President Hollande that "Turkey like every country has a right to defend its territory and air space." He then added, "I think it is very important for us to right now make sure that both the Russians and the Turks are talking to each other and find out exactly what happened, and take Read more [...] Continue reading →

Obama Accuses Republicans of ISIS Recruitment

syria iraq isis Guy Benson wrote at, "Obama: Let's Face It, These Republicans Are Practically ISIS Recruiters." First the Kerry disgrace, then this. Our president is the world's most powerful Internet troll: During his APEC address tonight, President Obama had some tough words for Republicans refusing to take in Syrian refugees. Yesterday he said that not taking in refugees would violate America’s values, but today he got much, much tougher in going after them. He said the “fear and panic” only Read more [...] Continue reading →

U.S. Jet Plane Shot Down People Fleeing Doctors Without Borders Hospital

bombing plane Not only was Doctors Without Borders bombed by U.S. Forces, but those trying to escape were shot from a jet plane. While the New York Times and CNN both tried to misdirect readers from who was guilty of bombing a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghanistan, NBCNews is doing a better job. In fact they have reported that the U.S. did more than just bomb the hospital: “U.S. Plane Shot Victims Fleeing Doctors Without Borders Hospital: Charity.” A U.S. warplane shot people trying to flee a Read more [...] Continue reading →

Pentagon Risks Hot War with Russia over Syria

f-15c They're sending fighter jets to "combat ISIS" that could only be used to start a hot war with Russian aircraft. Even I thought our ruling sociopaths were not this maniacally suicidal. The Daily Beast reports: "U.S. Brings Dogfighters to Counter Russians Over Syria." The U.S. Air Force is deploying to Turkey up to a dozen jet fighters specializing in air-to-air combat—apparently to help protect other U.S. and allied jets from Russia’s own warplanes flying over Syria. Officially, the deployment Read more [...] Continue reading →

Ground Forces in Syria Sent by Imperial President

caesar obama Obama Is Sending Ground Forces but Will He Get Congressional Authorization? The War Powers Act says the President has sixty days to get Congress’ approval from the time he begins hostilities. President Obama began bombing ISIS last year without Congressional action and no one seemed to care. Now that the President wants to send ground troops that may be about to change. According to Jason Ditz at There’ve been a few pushes for Authorizations for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) Read more [...] Continue reading →

Helping Afghanistan Meant People Helped Themselves to Money

Burning-Money How did helping Afghanistan with a new gas station cost $43 million? Building a similar station in Pakistan cost a half million dollars, but not this one. Scott Shackleford writes at the blog, “A $43 Million Gas Station—Is This Why We’re Still in Afghanistan?” The United States (as in, you and me), paid $43 million to build a compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Sheberghan, Afghanistan. […] That's not even the punch line. The punch line is that the Department of Defense Read more [...] Continue reading →

Laws Needed to Protect Ourselves from Drones

drone Artificial Intelligence (AI), the science behind the technology of drones needs to improve if we are to remain in control of the weapons used in war. Raw Story reports: Experts in artificial intelligence, lawyers and activists organized by the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots gathered at the United Nations on Tuesday to warn against a growing reliance on cheap drones and “stupid AI” that can be unpredictable in the real world. “Terminator always comes up,” Toby Walsh, a professor of artificial Read more [...] Continue reading →

Drone Wars--Approved Assassinations

drone crash U.S. Citizens have put their heads into the sand on this issue.  The President and the Federal government as a whole hold tremendous power over life and death when it comes to drones.  The policy in the Obama White House seems to be "trust, but don't worry about verifying." Consider this summary of the approach taken by our leaders to kill campaign targets at the expense of others who are in no way a danger to anyone: "Taken together, the secret documents lead to the conclusion that Washington’s Read more [...] Continue reading →

U.S. Empire Means We Are Ruled by Foreigners

caesar obama White House spokesman tells reporters we will be ruled by foreigners when it comes to our troop commitments to Afghanistan. CNS News posted two stories about Afghanistan yesterday, both well worth reading: “Gen. Campbell: Afghans Are Fleeing Their Country, But They Want U.S. Military to Stay,” and “WH: On Afghanistan, Obama Will 'Take Input' From Diplomats, NATO Allies, Not Just Military Commander Who's There.” The first headline is pretty self-explanatory. While the “top U.S. commander Read more [...] Continue reading →

New York Times and CNN Cover for Mass Killing

bombing plane Why would these mainstream news outlets obscure who was responsible for the mass killing of doctors and patients? The Intercept has a perspective that could bias them with a story like this. But when a Liberal news site congratulates the Wall Street Journal on printing the plain truth and points out that two major liberal sources are trying to hide it, I think we should take notice. The Intercept contends that the New York Times and CNN both tried to hide from readers the perpetrator of a mass Read more [...] Continue reading →

Is Barack Obama Threatening to Support Terrorists with More Weapons and Money?

obama putin 2 Didn’t we support terrorists in Afghanistan (or people who became terrorists) in order to create a “quagmire” for Russian troops? Here is CNN’s headline: “Obama: Russia heading for 'quagmire' in Syria.” When I read that headline I don’t see how any Russian could hear these words and not think about U.S. policy in Afghanistan. In other words, they sound like Barack Obama is warning Putin that he will support terrorists in Syria (or support more of them, or give them more support) Read more [...] Continue reading →

Russia Strikes in Syria, Tells U.S. to Get Out of Way

U.S. Democratic Senator John Kerry peeks from behind the curtain as he is introduced to address a town hall meeting at the University of South Carolina in Columbia January 30, 2004. Kerry, on a roll after winning the first two Democratic presidential contests, has opened big leads in Missouri and Arizona and is challenging for the top spot in South Carolina and Oklahoma, according to a Reuters/MSNBC/Zogby poll released on Friday. Pictures of the month January 2004 US ELECTION REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque PP04020009 Pictures of the Year 2004  KL/JDP - RTRBJQD Nothing says professionalism like having no clue what just happened on your own watch, especially when you're the American secretary of state. John Kerry was actually in the process of speaking with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov about coordinating Russian military movements in Syria with the U.S. airstrikes against ISIS, when the Russians sent a lackey to the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. The lackey's message? We've started bombing; one side, please. I would have liked to have seen Kerry's Read more [...] Continue reading →
