We would be fools to take seriously assurances from Joe Biden.
Prosperity has met its match. Regulation will kill prosperity by stealth unless we the people wake up to what’s going on. We are wildly, insanely overregulated today, and if we don’t attack the idea of the regulatory state on those terms – on the premise that regulation itself is mostly a bad thing, and we need far less of it than we have – then we will never recover.
The source of the report claiming that Israeli F-35 strike-fighters flew into Iranian airspace during the past month was a sensationalist Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida. So the claim seems most suspect.
There is now NO possible explanation for not evacuating at least non-essential personnel from the U.S. embassy and consulates in Iraq.
At least Russia and China are probably as mystified as we are about where Obama is going with his missile defense policy.
That law enforcement hasn’t identified the perpetrators is a big “tell” here. It tells me this is a suspicious development, not legitimate evidence of a spontaneous wave of anti-Jewish crimes.
The only way to secure a positive outcome in Syria is to use US power, under US strategic direction, to do it. This has never necessarily meant military intervention, but it does necessarily mean acting with purpose and determination, rather than throwing random reconnaissance assets into the fray while handing the political problem over lock, stock, and barrel to the Arab League and the UN.
In his travels as a journalist in the Islamic world, Sotloff never referred to his Jewishness.
ISIS is executing, slowly but surely, a pincer move on Baghdad.
Does anyone out there know anyone who would stick a laptop in the mail, in a cavalier manner that would leave it susceptible to being “lost”? Is it conceivable this person might become PRESIDENT?
Iran could produce enough high-enriched uranium (HEU) for a first nuclear warhead in as little as two weeks.
Instead of sticking with our commitment to a new Libya, one in which Americans have friendship and influence – one in which we can walk free, and so can Libyans – we have closed our post in Benghazi and drawn down our embassy staff in Tripoli to “essential” personnel only. It will be of some interest to see how long it takes al Qaeda or other terrorist savages to attack us in Tripoli.
Did Iran's warships actually visit Syria this past week as was widely reported, or did was that Iranian disinformation?
President Barack Obama's recent self-congratulatory comments on the killing of Osama bin Laden must be viewed against the backdrop of past presidents, and how they related to the role of the military.
Romney sees the Navy as a core element of our enduring strategic posture. For national defense and for the protection of trade, the United States has from the beginning sought to operate in freedom on the seas, and, where necessary, to exercise control of them. We are a maritime nation, with extremely long, shipping-friendly coastlines in the temperate zone and an unprecedented control of the world’s most traveled oceans, the Atlantic and Pacific.
It is not obvious that any group or type of person in particular mounted this one, nor can any be ruled out.
As long as the mainstream media have rumors of geniuses and *********to combat, they may not be able to mount a concerted, thematic counter-effort against Trump’s actual policy moves.
He gets that we can’t just sit still, paralyzed by bad press and Democratic talking points.
We’ve reached a watershed here, where we either live in our own heads affirming reality, regardless of spurious inputs from demagoguery or sentiment, or we give up on reality and let demagoguery and sentiment take over at the decision table. Did the president pull off a performance last night, in terms of sounding passionate and full of conviction? To some extent, yes. Does that mean he won the debate, or even achieved a draw with Romney? No.
Slinging force around, with press notices, is not what a strong president does.
Free speech doesn't mean the taxpayer-funded government never has an opinion on what it will/won’t subsidize. If that were the case, society would never have an option to refuse to pay for anything
Remnants of Assad’s nuclear program are alive and well, under the control of Hezbollah and Iran
Dear Pres. Obama, A “deal” in which one side makes all the concessions is, of course, a “surrender.”
Ghe Iran nuclear problem is not one that can be dealt with via a small, pinpoint strike, in a matter of only minutes on target.
The White House wanted to defame Netanyahu, undermine his reputation, impugn him & his policies
