The Washington Corruption that is the ‘Swamp’

Republicans say the decision to keep Obama’s guy, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, and protect Lois Learner, the IRS official at the center of the scandal over targeting Tea Party groups, demonstrates the corruption that characterizes the nature of the swamp. … Continue reading

Shadow Government: How Obama Is Undermining Trump’s Presidency

How George Soros Destroyed the Democratic Party

George Soros spent a fortune to turn a national party favorable to the left into an organization that has difficulty appealing to anyone not on the left. He wanted to control a country he did not understand. And, as the … Continue reading

The Obama-era is Over

>The Obama-era was permanent. It was making history. We were rushing through endless goal posts of social transformation. The military fell. Then the police fell. This was Obama’s America. And, there was no going back. A brief moment of foolishness that already appears odd and awkward. And then one day nostalgic. It wasn’t the future. It’s already past. Now it is history. The Obama-era ends not with a bang but with a whimper. With a national consensus that maybe he didn’t really matter so much after all. Continue reading

Obama’s Reckless Plan Threatens U.S. Oversight of Internet

The liberal media continue to assert that handing over a function of the Internet will have minor repercussions. That’s because few in the media want to blame President Obama for, once again, damaging U.S. interests in his pursuit of the transformation of America. This is a complicated issue, but after the lies employed to sell the country on the phony Iran deal, and on Obamacare, Congress should block this surrender of U.S. Internet oversight for at least as long as Obama is President. Continue reading

The Kerry-Putin Agreement and Syrian Ceasfire Collapse

Politics creates strange bedfellows, and in this one case, America’s interests seem to coincide with those of Russia, Iran, and Damascus. Going after ISIS with kid gloves means more terrorism and a continuation of the refugee crisis. Assad is a … Continue reading

A Lame Duck: Mascot of a Failed, Corrupt Congress

Obama has said that he intends to push the TPP in the lame-duck session of Congress. There is no better tactic for subverting democracy than the lame duck session. And the transnational corporate lobbyists are pushing hard for one! A few days wedged between Thanksgiving and Christmas, when the average citizen is tired of politics and looking forward to some holiday cheer – and naive thoughts of a better world, is just what the Establishment needs to get its way.

How Conservative is Trump?

The 2016 presidential election is likely to be the most consequential of the century. Its outcome will likely govern the selection three Supreme Court appointments as well as numerous other federal judgeships, it will determine whether or not our national sovereignty continues to be stripped away and if the federal bureaucracy will intensify its vilification of conservatives and Christians. In fact, it will affect our ability to have free elections decided by legitimately cast votes of U.S. citizens. In short, it is so consequential that a failure to participate is simply not conservative. Continue reading

Club for Growth (in China) Attacks Trump

Trump should welcome the attack by the Club for Growth (in China), as it exposes the group’s anti-American platform in perfect contrast to Trump’s posture as a “patriotic businessman;” a notion alien to the Club’s liberal philosophy which holds national loyalty to be outdated and irrelevant to the conduct of “globalization” and transnational corporatism.

Obama’s Nuclear “Deal” with Iran: A Historic Agreement, or an Epic Failure?

The “deal” seems to conform to a disconcerting pattern characterizing the Obama administration’s foreign policy of propping up anti-American Marxist or Islamist dictatorships. Thus, Obama has thrown a lifeline to and reestablished relations with communist-occupied Cuba, and his perplexing passivity vis-à-vis ISIS has helped that savage Jihadist tyranny survive and consolidate. Now, Team Obama has de facto shored up Khamenei’s regime and shielded it from international pressure and, especially, the threat of an airstrike by Israel (which does not possess the necessary bunker-buster bombs, which only the U.S. has, to destroy nuclear facilities embedded deeply in the mountains of Iran). Is this pattern merely a coincidence? Continue reading

Hillary Preempts the Field

The day after Clinton released her announcement video, another Republican candidate entered the increasingly crowded GOP field. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio is 43 and offers a young and attractive family and life story. As a Cuban-American, he, like fellow Senator Ted Cruz, would be the first Hispanic nominated for president by a major party. Continue reading

Communist Cuba’s Alliance with the Islamic Republic of Iran

Tehran’s and Havana’s shared interest in Venezuela is another source of potential concern to the West. Of strategic significance is the possibility that Iranian scientists are enriching uranium in Venezuela for shipment to Iran. Venezuelan sources have confirmed this possibility. Foreign intelligence services consulted by the author acknowledged these rumors but are unable to confirm them. If confirmed, these actions would violate UN sanctions as well as U.S. security measures. Continue reading

What’s Behind Obama’s Call for Mandatory Voting?

Leftist groups like the ‘Center for American Progress’ and ‘Demos,’ including such progressive luminaries as John Podesta, Van Jones, as well as Barack Obama, have previously endorsed compulsory voting laws to guarantee progressive government. The first step on the road to mandatory voting is mandatory voter registration.

Is a Restoration of Legitimate Government on its Way?

But the GOP will have to look beyond the “advice” of Big Business since it is corporate policy that has sought to keep American incomes down. It must be remembered that the Chamber of Commerce supports Obama on immigration.

Strategic value of Poland and the ‘Intermarium’

The White House’s erratic, confused, and rudderless foreign policy endangers America’s Polish friend, and, indeed, other NATO members, putting Warsaw and the rest, in particular in Central and Eastern Europe, also known as the Intermarium, lands between the Black and Baltic seas, on a collision course vis-à-vis Berlin and Moscow. This is plainly obvious in the context of the Ukrainian crisis.

Humor as a Political Weapon

With the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe, commentators and scholars initially focused on broader themes such as the moves by President Ronald Reagan and the subsequent Soviet recognition of the regime’s inability to stand up in the face of a determined, effective Western adversary.

Sikorski’s Vulgar Musings and Obama’s Failed Foreign Policy

Radek Sikorski’s party, the governing Civic Platform, attacked the Kaczyński twins (Lech and Jaroslaw, president and prime minister of Poland in 2005, respectively) and their Law and Justice Party for their staunchly pro-American policies and assertiveness vis-à-vis Moscow, Berlin, and Brussels…

Benghazi Scandal Worse than Watergate

Watergate was a political burglary gone wrong that was not authorized by the president, while Benghazi was an unacknowledged deadly terrorist attack resulting in multiple deaths. Both scandals involved U.S. presidential election campaigns, Nixon, of Watergate fame, during his 1972 reelection against Democratic candidate George McGovern.

Christian Persecution ‘Not’ the Center Point of Obama’s Vatican Meeting with Pope Francis

President Barack Obama’s meeting with His Holiness Pope Francis at the Vatican on March 27 revealed that the topic of Christian persecution, particularly in the Middle East, where it is most acute and is the deliberate target of fundamentalist Islamist militants, was not a White House priority.

American Cowboy Diplomacy is the Only Defense Against Commissar Diplomacy

Sarah Palin understood in 2008 what the school of foreign policy “realists” did not, that Georgia was not significant in isolation but as a prerequisite to the invasion of Ukraine and likewise Ukraine should be understood in the context of an imperial territorial ambition that stretches far beyond its borders.

Ted Cruz and the Battle against ObamaCare

For more than three years, Republicans in Congress, conservative activists and allied interest groups have sought in vain to defeat ObamaCare. They likewise were unsuccessful in trying to prevent the reelection of the eponymous author of that program in 2012. Their lack of success with both endeavors did not breed resignation or despair. Rather, with key parts of ObamaCare set to take effect on the same day that funding for much of the federal government would expire, conservatives sought to tie the two together and defund ObamaCare.

No Good Way in Syria’s Civil War

The United States has painted itself into a geopolitical corner over Syria. At the moment, Russia gloats, while China circles above, carrion-like, leaving America with no good moves. There is only lesser evil: in Syria, in the region, and on the global scene. Backing the Alawite-led Bashar al-Assad regime of the national socialist Baath Party is tantamount to restoring the hostile situation prior to the Arab Spring, including Iran’s nefarious influence in Lebanon with its proxy Hezbollah. Supporting the rebels means enabling the Sunnis in general, the Muslim Brotherhood and the al-Qaeda in particular. Make no mistake, the rebels do accept support from the royalist Gulf States, but it is not the sworn monarchists or military secularists doing battle against the Assad regime.

Obama’s Red Line: A Different Perspective

As I stood on the beautiful Mediterranean coast last Thursday, my calm was suddenly disrupted by the screeching sound of an Israeli jet fighter. Due to Israel’s miniscule size this is nothing unusual. It is virtually impossible for citizens and tourists to not encounter some aspect of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) during the course of an ordinary day. Security is understandably tight but Thursday was different.

Congressman Wolf: ‘Benghazi Four’ State Department Employees Still Being “Intimidated”

In spite of being allowed to return back to their positions, the ‘Benghazi Four’ are still being “intimidated” by the federal government according to Congressman Frank Wolf (R-Va.). “They should be allowed to speak the truth, but they’re not” Congressman Wolf told this reporter in an exclusive interview with SFPPR News & Analysis while remarking on how the four State Department employees were forced to sign a “non-disclosure agreement,” whereby they will not reveal what happened at the Benghazi annex on September 11, 2012.

Train of Sacrifices: Israel’s Bloody Rational for Peace

In one of the most famous events in the Bible, G-d commanded Abraham to sacrifice his only son. So Abraham took his son Isaac, bound him on an altar and prepared to bring him up as a burnt offering. And then the voice of the angel called to him and told him not to harm his son. G-d did not want human sacrifices. The Middle East’s Arab-Israeli peace process does.

EPA’s CO2 Future is Now

Most media analysts and even some industry executives seem to believe that EPA restrictions on carbon and other alleged greenhouse gases (GHGs) are geared mainly to future coal plants – plants that will probably never be built because, as it’s said almost everyday, today’s low natural gas prices will persist…

IRS abuse of power and the re-election of the president

Should anyone doubt the purpose of these recent revelations that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeted conservative Tea Party and patriotic grassroots groups such as the Glenn Beck inspired 9/12 groups seeking tax-exempt status from the government? Cast all skepticism aside. Be advised there was a single purpose to this act of unmitigated government tyranny…
