Clinton caught in the Crossfire Over TPP

There is no bigger conundrum in the US political sphere right now than the Trans-Pacific Partnership. It has a Republican congress siding with President Obama, a liberal icon emerging in the form of Elizabeth Warren, interest groups such as Hollywood in bed with opposing interest groups like the pharmaceutical industry, and in the middle of it is Hillary Clinton.

Is it Worse if Obama Knew or Didn’t Know About Merkel Spying?

As is always the case with political scandals, we have two conflicting reports. On one hand, you have an anonymous National Security Agency official saying that US President Barack Obama was briefed on the spying efforts against 35 world leaders and allowed it to continue. The response from the NSA is that he was told a short time ago and …

Don’t Trust Iran

It’s a simple answer to an extremely complex situation. The world in general wants Iran to come to the table and truly negotiate to rejoin the world and cease their pursuit of nuclear weapons. Unfortunately, it is extremely unlikely that this can really happen. While President Hassan Rouhani is making positive overtures towards the west, even accepting a call from …

Where Will Syria Sit in Obama’s Historical Legacy

To date, President Barack Obama’s greatest foreign relations claims to fame are the killing of Osama bin Laden and winning the Nobel Peace Prize. The former was a great accomplishment, albeit a combined effort over the years by the intelligence communities of his and the former administration. The latter was earned before any action was actually taken by the president. …

Obama Reversed Bush Administration Ban on NSA Domestic Spying Powers

Up is down and down is up if you’re watching closely enough to what has been happening at the NSA and with the Obama administration the last few years.

Where’s the Outrage from the Left Over Obama’s Syrian Attack Efforts?

If George W. Bush, John McCain, or Mitt Romney were in office today and were considering the exact same actions, saying the exact same words, and proposing the exact same things that President Barack Obama is currently serving up to the American people, the response would be different.  There would be protests by the liberal citizens, unified outrage from democrats …

Who is Saudi National Abdulrahman Ali Al-Harbi?

No, the image above is not of Saudi national Abdulrahman Ali Al-Harbi. That’s Janet Napolitano, the Secretary of Homeland Security who evaded the question about the deportation of Abdulrahman Ali Al-Harbi with the skill and vigor of a well-trained politician at the highest levels of national security when asked about him by Congress. She’s also one person who knows exactly what …

Survey Paints Conservatives in a Conspiracy Loving Light

Either there is an exceptionally high percentage of conservatives who believe in outrageous conspiracy theories or even The Guardian and the folks at Public Policy Polling are skewing the numbers somehow. That’s the conclusion of their article whether they blatantly say it or not and it’s at least a little insulting to those of us who believe in more credible …

Obama Closes Office Tasked with Closing Gitmo

Guantanamo Bay isn’t going to be closed down any time soon. The 2008 campaign promise that played a major role in helping the President win his first election is officially going to remain unfulfilled as the office created to close the military detention center has itself been shut down. The administration reassigned Daniel Fried, the special envoy for closing the …

Dear Hillary: It Makes a Difference

It makes a huge difference, Madam. When Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson attempted to find out why the American people were misled about the cause of the Benghazi attacks and why our response was nil at the time that it was happening, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went on the defensive. You know when someone starts a statement with the words, …
