He who laughs last…

Russia is having a good laugh at the US at us imposing sanctions against Russia for annexing Crimea. According to a foreign policy aide at the Kremlin “These sanctions are already a bore, they truly cause a sense of irony and even sarcasm.” Another aide compared the sanctions to a “political Oscar” that he is […]

Republican Mindless Opposition

The “Party of No” is at it again. Republicans loudly denounced the deal that the Obama administration had negotiated with Iran, even before they had any idea of what was in it. The first denunciation came around five minutes after it was first leaked that a deal had been been struck, and hours before there […]

Pundit Punishment

© Matt Bors Sometimes I think the pundits are trying to make up for the fact that 10 years ago they were pressing their lips against the neo-cons’ asses so hard they couldn’t see what a disaster Iraq was going to be. This time around, they are critical of everything. Like, OMG, we found a […]

How Dare You Deny Us Our War???

Why are all the pundits upset that we might avoid a war in Syria? Isn’t it a good thing that we might be able to work together with Russia to get a brutal dictator to give up his chemical weapons? I think this is great! What is wrong with us?

Decisions, Decisions

© David Horsey The one thing we do know for sure is that no matter what Obama does about Syria, the Republicans will attack him for it. Ironically, because Obama has no really good options, at least from a political viewpoint, this means that he can pick the option that he actually believes is the […]

The Aftermath of War

© Ruben Bolling Why do we keep assuming, against all evidence to the contrary, that we can just waltz into a country, kill some people and leave, and everyone will live happily ever after. It’s almost like a fairy tale, where every stubborn political problem has a simple military solution. Or maybe it does, if […]

How can they be so wrong?

Easy peasy! As long as you’re willing to be wrong for powerful special interests, you’ll never have to worry about having a job. And we have drugs if you can’t sleep at night. © Tom Tomorrow Don’t believe it? Ten years ago, Phil Donahue was fired from MSNBC for speaking out against the war in […]

What part of Homeland don’t they understand?

According to that hot-bed of anti-war sentiment, Forbes magazine, the Department of Homeland Security has issued a purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. Yes, that’s billion. To give you an idea of how much that is, at the worst of the Iraq war, we were expending less than 6 million rounds of ammo […]

High Tech Warfare — It’s Legal!

© Ruben Bolling Yes, Ruben Bolling got the memo that this was the week for everyone to attack Obama over the drone strikes. But I liked this one.

Droning on About Constitutional Law

© Tom Tomorrow Don’t get me wrong, I’m not at all happy with all the drone attacks being done in our name. But I think the left is barking up the wrong tree calling this a violation of the constitution. The constitution specifically gives the president the power to conduct wars, and whether we like […]

Another Cliff

© Stuart Carlson Former Senate Republican Leader Bob Dole came to the Senate floor in a wheelchair last Tuesday to make a personal appeal for lawmakers to ratify a UN treaty to protect the rights of the disabled. Even Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN) said that veterans he had visited “expressed without reservation that their lives […]

Joe Biden Goes Off-Script

This is what I admire about Joe Biden — his ability to speak about his own feelings and convey raw emotion in a very real way. I remember him doing a similar thing during the hearings about torture. UPDATE: Here’s an unedited video of Biden.
