LIBERALS

Their New Strategy

Democrats are facing a tough time in November with the unpopularity of Obama.   What to do?   The answer is pretty clear.  Take big shots at Obama, but not at his policies.   This is evident by the recent articles by Maureen Dowd.  Her complaint, fun to read by conservatives, avoids the big issues.  They are the policies that Obama and Democrats have pursued which have taken America to the brink of disaster.  The answer by liberals is simply to blame Obama and his approach but not the policies themselves.  In fact, the policies are destroying America but if they can lay enough blame on Obama and his lackadaisical attitude, people maybe won't look deeply into the policy mistakes.  After all, he is not up for election.  

MUSLIM EXTREMISTS

Stopping ISIS

Angelo Codevilla gives the recipe for stopping ISIS, which we must do sometime in the not too distant future.  It is a bit messy in that it requires getting other nations like Saudi to do the dirty work.  But US involvement in actual fighting would be minimal.  Who has the guts in America to pursue this approach?   Certainly not our President. 

ISLAM

What Do Muslims Believe?

Robert Spencer writes that free-world politicians are trying to make us believe that the ISIL and main-stream Islam are two different things.   Obama does it by still defending the Muslim religion even though ISIL follows the commands of the Koran.  As others have done, Spencer lists many specific references from the Koran that are totally at odds with liberty for mankind.   That many extremist organizations follow these commands to a "T" and that regular Muslims do not rebel against these interpretations is proof enough to me that Islam is a threat to freedom and liberty, everywhere. 

THE GLOBAL WARMING HOAX?

White House Open To Working On

International Climate Deal Without

Congress

The White House confirmed Wednesday that President Obama may seek an international deal on climate change without getting that agreement cleared by Congress.
 
Illegal and unconstitutional.  

UKRAINE

Putin’s Stealth War Causes Retreat By

Ukrainian Soldiers

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s stealth war of attrition may be paying off. As evidence mounts that pro-Russian separatists are being supplied with new weapons from across the border, some Ukrainian soldiers are now refusing to fight.
 
An evil man, that Putin. 

PRESIDENT OBAMA

Obama's Poor Sense Of History Causes

Him To Be Passive

President Obama doesn't know much about history.
In his therapeutic 2009 Cairo speech, Obama outlined all sorts of Islamic intellectual and technological pedigrees, several of which were undeserved.
 
He exaggerated Muslim contributions to printing and medicine, for example, and was flat-out wrong about the catalysts for the European Renaissance and Enlightenment.
Had we had Obama over the last century, we would be speaking German or Russian now. 

CHINA MILITARY AFFAIRS

Next Challenge For U.S. Navy: A Mission

Vs. Rising China

George Will saysRussia's ongoing dismemberment of Ukraine and the Islamic State's erasing of Middle Eastern borders have distracted attention from the harassment of U.S. Navy aircraft by Chinese fighter jets over the South China Sea.
Beijing calls this sea, and the Yellow and East China seas, the "near seas," meaning China's seas. The episodes involving aircraft are relevant to one of Adm. Jonathan Greenert's multiplying preoccupations — CUES, meaning Code for Unplanned Encounters at Sea.

MEDIA FAILURES

Another Ferguson? Wait, Wrong Race,

No Interest

Larry Elder saysWhy has there been no media interest in the police shooting of an apparently unarmed suspect in Salt Lake City?
Just two days after the shooting death of Michael Brown, an officer with the Salt Lake City Police Department shot and killed an unarmed 20-year-old.
 

NEWSBALANCE

We post many more articles than highlighted on this page.   Some are highly ranked but don't meet my notion of deserving special attention, perhaps because they were covered recently.   I invite you to peruse all the posted articles, or maybe just the liberal ones or the conservative ones.
