Comments Off on THE INCREDULOUS SHRINKING PRESIDENT

President Obama may be shrinking in the hearts and minds of his people, but he has always been at his most powerful and persuasive when he has seemed the odd man out. He reaches the height of his oratorical abilities. Witness our lesson for yesterday: “We don’t want the world to be paralyzed,” Obama said […]

May 7, 2011

For SamHenry, the President’s action in taking out Bin Laden has been perhaps the worst decision of his presidency.  Our special forces entered a country with which we were not at war under unclear circumstances and killed a Muslim icon, Osama Bin Laden.  Inasmuch as Bin Laden swore he would never be taken alive, the […]

The end of European respect for the US is nigh.  The negative remarks of  Army General Carter Ham (the US general who led our troops in Libya) to the press about NATO’s handling of the war in Libya and hinting at ground troops to solve the stalemate are damming.

No one pays attention to history anymore – largely because it is not taught or taught well in schools.  Case in point:  The press had the American people convinced that the new President of Brazil (most US students won’t know where it is) would be more of a centrist than her predecessor, Lula, and that […]

Yet another journalist heard from who is “telling it as it is” and revealing the “truth” about  the war in Libya.  In today’s Telegraph, Con Coughlin puts forth the case for our now turning to warfare that utilizes brain over brawn.

Comments Off on US Declares Arming Rebels Means Training; We Already Have Troops On the Ground to Do This

Holding President Obama back from rushing ahead to arm the rebels in Libya is the idea that for the more complicated weapons, training is needed.  We agonize over having boots on the ground.  Well On My Watch has already posted an article about the fact that there are already US boots on the ground: Islamabad—The […]

Ok all of you countries who want to weaken the west by breaking up NATO and other organizations and treaties between them.  Obama is here to help.  The President’s sojourn in South America has netted these multiple headlines in the Daily Mail: Who’s in charge?

Countless Egyptians interviewed have dismissed them as a […]

It is remarkable that Kate and William have been sensitive to the economy and those suffering from its rigors.  As a result, they have opted for a car to transport Kate to the Abbey (also the symbolism in this is that she will not yet be royal) and for wedding guests to donate to their […]
