Bush vs. Obama: Who’s the Better Commander in Chief, According to Vets of Iraq, Afghanistan?

Conservatives are not, I don’t think, exactly fans of President George W. Bush as a president, but they (and I) usually say they like him as a person. As a president, ol’ W. certainly was no true conservative. He campaigned on promises of conservatism, but once he got in office he shifted leftward and led like a moderate—probably how we can expect his nephew Jeb Bush to lead if Republicans are so imbecilic as to nominate...

How Rutgers Went From Hating Torture To Loving Murder In One Simple Step

Tolerance in a two-way street. That little phrase is bandied about all the time by the fanatical Left whenever they feel like condemning a conservative for perceived intolerance. The Left frequently claims the mantle of tolerance, making themselves into modern deities.

74% of US Casualties of 12 Year Afghan War Occurred Since Obama Increased Troop Numbers

Correct me if I’m wrong, but when Barack Obama was running for president in 2008, wasn’t he against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?  I do recall seeing him on television during the campaign referring to them as Bush’s wars and he would end them.  Obama accused his opponent Sen. John McCain of being a hawk who wanted to escalate the wars while Obama claimed he wanted to end the wars and bring our servicemen/women home. He more or...

Is Al Qaeda Winning the War in the Middle East?

According to a CNN analyst, Al Qaeda controls more territory in the Middle East than ever before. They just retook the embattled city of Falluja and have consolidated power in sections of Syria.

Ex Defense Sec. Robert Gates Blasts Washington’s Self-Centeredness

Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is in a uniquely qualified position to assess the current state of American government. He presided over the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan under both George W. Bush and Barack Obama. His diagnosis? Washington stinks. Both sides of the aisle. The Wall Street Journal has posted an excerpt from the memoir of Robert Gates, and it is fascinating and frustrating. He confirms the suspicions that I have...
