The 13 Reasons I Owe Democrats an Apology

Michael Schaus,   I owe Democrats an apology. Flipping through some of my hate mail (I lead a tremendously exciting life, as you can see) it dawned on me that it’s quite possible conservatives are a little too hard on our liberal friends. (Also: I’m trolling for more hate mail.) And so, with reserved humility, I […] Continue reading →

Michael Reagan: Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest

Where does the Obama Administration find these people?  How did Marie Harf – the deputy spokesperson for the State Department’s Bureau of Public Affairs – get her job? On Monday she provided the latest proof that Barack Obama and the people he’s surrounded himself with are not just dangerously incompetent, they’re idiots.

NY Professor: Global Warming Created ISIS

Michael Schaus,  Your SUV is apparently responsible for all those beheadings in the Middle East. That’s right: ISIS is nothing more than a product of global warming, according to some non-scientist from John Jay College in New York.

Why Does Centcom Need a Twitter Account Anyway?

 Before it was hacked yesterday, the Twitter account of the U.S. military’s Central Command churned out mostly buzz-free tweets on its operations in the Middle East.

Diplomacy Failed in Iran: Fund Missile Defense

George Landrith,   The US and several other nations have been in “talks” in hopes of negotiating with Iran to stop its nuclear program in exchange for lifting the UN sanctions.

US And Iran Are Closer Than Ever To A Deal That Would Transform The Middle East

Christian Science Monitor,  Just hours after nuclear talks between Iran and six world powers missed a Monday deadline, yielding instead a seven-month extension of negotiations, one sign indicated a combative return to business as usual. In a speech to visiting Muslim clerics, Iran’s supreme religious leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, devoted just two lines to the talks: “In […] Continue reading →

Putin Sells Guns while Obama Goes Golfing

Michael Schaus,   I know who I’m contacting for my next AK-47 variant. Vladimir Putin is stepping up Russia’s arms business in the wake of increased volatility throughout the Middle East. Apparently the Bond villain in Moscow realized that relying on America to fork over hundreds of millions of dollars – for a few spontaneously-combusting rocket […] Continue reading →
