Terror Reminds Us of What’s At Stake

Just when it looked like we were going to spend the spring being subjected to the GOP food fight about wives and Supreme Court blockades and keeping swarthy people out of the country, along comes a cold sweat, fear-inducing, terror-in-the-night event in Belgium to focus us on what's really at stake in this election. So let me be clear: Hillary Clinton is far and away the best, most knowledgeable, temperamentally suited candidate to lead this country through our foreign policy challenges. The Republicans...

Trump’s Voice is Heard in Sick Video Promoting Brussels Terrorist Attacks

The nine minute video was released just days after the deadly terrorist attacks in Brussels, where 30 innocent lives were lost. And in the video, which was produced by Al Battar Media, Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump played a cameo role for the terrorist sympathizers. While a map of Europe burns, Trump is heard  on the video saying; “Brussels was one of the great cities, the most beautiful cities in the world 20 years ago. It was amazing, actually, and safe. And now it’s...

A Political Snow Job

If nothing else, the big blizzard that hit the East Coast is sparing us from some of the oh-so-trite coverage of the presidential election, which actually only gets underway eight days hence. Governor Christie did make it back to New Jersey for the storm, even though he had originally said that the Lieutenant Governor, Kim Guadagno, could manage the preparations and aftermath well enough. And she probably could, but New Jerseyans elected Christie and we want him to fulfill at least some of his duties...

Rick Santorum Blames Obama for Not Bombing ISIS – Fact: 6,000 Airstrikes and Counting

Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum went to a Presidential Family Forum in Iowa and lied to the people, telling them that President Obama refuse to drop bombs on ISIS, although the president has ordered 6,000 airstrikes on the terrorist group so far, and counting... “We have a president who won’t even identify ISIS as Islamic nor will he identify it as a state,” Santorum said. “He says we can’t bomb them because we can’t recognize them as a state because it will give them...

Does This Mean War?

I'm being a bit of a coward by posing my title as a question, but I do firmly believe that the western world is headed towards a much larger, more coordinated and, ultimately, more deadly military conflict. If it sounds like war, smells like war, destroys like war, breeds intolerance like war, then it must be a war. And we're in one. I fear that there are more attacks coming in places that think they're prepared, but are not. After all, Vladimir Putin thought he was going to help Assad in Syria...

ISIS Beheader “Jihadi John” Possibly Killed in US Airstrike – Video

The face of ISIS, the man seen on video beheading three U.S citizens, was the target of a successful U.S airstrike. His fate is still unclear. Mohammed Emwazi has participated in numerous propaganda videos showing the killings of Westerners, including American journalists Steven Sotloff and James Foley, American aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig, British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning and Japanese journalist Kenji Goto, officials said. A senior U.S. official told NBC News that the Kuwait-born...

The August Election

OK, I'll play along. According to the polls, the guesses, the conventional wisdom, the money and the low-down, scandal-mongering, hyper-partisan, yellow-dog press, we now know who's going to win that all-important August 2015 presidential election. I'm sure you know that this election is a rather unusual one in American politics because it doesn't take place in every state and candidates can say the most outrageous things and still be considered Oval Office material. We all know that Donald...
