Obama’s Memorial Day Ice Cream Gloat
By Judi McLeod Monday, May 25, 2015
The picture Herman Cain writer Dan Calabrese calls “the worst Memorial Day photo ever” should be going viral now if Obama Google pals don’t bury it.
The photo shows for once and for all how President Barack Obama really feels about Memorial Day, the one day a year set aside to pay respect to the sacrifice of the highly venerated war dead.
Memorial Day and What We Should be Remembering
By Michael Fumento Monday, May 25, 2015
It’s Memorial Day in America. Time to celebrate spring with barbecues and the first trip to the beach. Solemnity is essentially forbidden. Except among we “brave few,” as Shakespeare famously put it in Henry V, “We band of brothers.”
Ask a veteran what combat is like and you’ll get as many different answers as there are vets. Still, the clichés hold true: “All your senses are heightened;” “It’s a mixture of fear and excitement;” “It’s the most alive you’ll ever feel;” and yes, Winston Churchill’s famous declaration that “nothing in life is so exhilarating as to be shot at without result.” After being the proverbial ducks in a shooting gallery in one particularly vicious ambush in Iraq, the men I was with and I began laughing hysterically upon reaching safety.
Ladies and gentlemen, the worst Memorial Day photo ever
By Dan Calabrese Monday, May 25, 2015
I don’t even know what to say about this. It’s almost as if whoever runs the Democrats’ Twitter account decided to take on a personal challenge of coming up with the most inappropriate photo imaginable for the day when the nation honors its war dead. It’s about fallen soldiers? Ha!
Ramadi and Obama’s Phony Air War Against ISIS
By Michael Fumento Monday, May 25, 2015
“The Cemetery of the Americans.” That’s what graffiti said in the western Iraq city of Ramadi when I first embedded there in 2006. Indeed, my two journalist predecessors in Camp Corregidor were both shot be snipers. Within weeks the first SEAL to die in Iraq would be killed, another mortally wounded. My own Public Affairs officer was killed, and later the first SEAL to win the Medal of Honor in Iraq would die there. It was the hardest-fought battle of the war, but we won.
Baltimore Cops Indicted in Freddie Gray Case
By Matthew Vadum Monday, May 25, 2015
Six Baltimore police officers were indicted Friday in the death of Freddie Gray after prosecutors forced a local grand jury to move at what is considered lightning speed in the criminal justice system.
Although there may indeed be police malfeasance in the death of Gray, news of the indictments that the grand jury considered at an unseemly pace is anticlimactic. It’s not like anyone expected grand jurors to toss the charges out in the anti-cop lynch mob environment that now grips Charm City. And there are serious doubts whether the police officers can receive a fair trial in Baltimore City because the petit jury pool there isn’t exactly filled with law-and-order enthusiasts.
American dollars bequeathed us Ireland’s successful referendum
By Judi McLeod Sunday, May 24, 2015
That it was suddenly magnanimous, home-grown Irish, a coming together of young and old, who made their country the first to approve same-sex marriage by way of referendum, is an exaggeration that surpasses the gifts said to come to the kissers of the legendary Blarney Stone.
Memorial Day 2015
By Alan Caruba Sunday, May 24, 2015
We need to remind ourselves that Memorial Day is not just another three-day weekend or a day when all manner of sales are offered to those who want to go shopping. It is a day set aside to honor the ultimate sacrifice of those who have fought to defend our nation and take military action in foreign nations. We honor, too, those who suffered wounds and returned home.
The Congressional Board of Exchange
By Sandy Stringfellow Sunday, May 24, 2015
We are living in a political world of the UniParty; it’s sort of like the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, a historic commodity and – in these modern times – financial derivative exchange based in Chicago.
I’m Standing With Pat
By Dr. Robert R. Owens Sunday, May 24, 2015
I am proud to say I have been a viewer, reader, and supporter of Pat Buchanan for decades. I have watched all the different shows that he has either participated in or founded. His career as a commentator has stretched from the 1970’s with his radio program the Buchanan—Barden Program and his commentaries for NBC. His work in television has helped shape a whole industry of imitators. He founded Crossfire on CNN and was a founding member of the McLaughlin Group. He was also a founding member of the Capital Gang on PBS.
Obama’s Policies to Empower ISIS Exposed
By Raymond Ibrahim Saturday, May 23, 2015
For months, many Western observers have been closely following the minute-by-minute developments concerning the battle between Islamic State and coalition forces in the hopes that such data will help them discern what the future may hold.
Republicans lose faith in Party Leadership
By Jeff Crouere Saturday, May 23, 2015
A new Pew Research Center poll shows that America is unhappy with the GOP led Congress. In fact, Americans are disgusted as Republican congressional leaders only registered a 22% overall approval rating.
The Jefferson Davis ‘Memorial Day’ Funeral Train
By Calvin E. Johnson Jr. Saturday, May 23, 2015
Why is the proud history of the South being attacked?
Did you read about students at a Texas University who want a statue of Jefferson Davis removed from the campus?
Why compassion for illegal immigration is wrong
By A. Dru Kristenev Friday, May 22, 2015
Unchecked immigration is destroying our nation by undermining and overrunning the very institution that was built to harbor immigrants through the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution…
Don’t call it compassion when the president, elected officials or a candidate takes a stand that illegal immigrants deserve a pass to stay in this country and receive citizenship, let alone resident status. It is approval of America’s demise; an uncontrolled decimation of what the Founders established in the new world expressly to provide free exercise of faith, industry and speech.
The Problem with Jade Helm
By Arnold Ahlert Friday, May 22, 2015
Jade Helm 15, a large-scale military operation conducted by U.S. Army Special Operations Command and service members from the military’s four branches, scheduled to take place in several states between July 15 and September 15, 2015, has elicited a firestorm of criticism. Many have gone so far as to claim the exercises are a prelude to the imposition of martial law, especially in Texas, one of the states designated as “hostile” territory. However, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) puts the issue in the proper perspective, noting why it’s reasonable that Americans would be concerned about the operation.
How the Media Got Into Bed with the Clintons
By Cliff Kincaid Friday, May 22, 2015
Republican operative Karl Rove writes in The Wall Street Journal that “few demonstrate as much contempt for journalists as do Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.” That may be true for Obama, but Mrs. Clinton has taken a different approach. Her platforms, the Clinton Foundation and its project, the Clinton Global Initiative, have given the appearance of humanitarian work, drawing many big names from the media into her network of influence. No wonder they treat her with deference and respect. The media have been compromised.
