So this what “more flexibility” after his re-election meant.
Soon after the newly inaugurated President Barack Obama removed his Commander-in-Chief-left-hand from Lincoln’s bible, he went on an Apology tour that culminated with his demand in Cairo that Egypt allow the Muslim Brotherhood full participation in future elections and that they be allowed to attend his speech. The first acts of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were to schmooze Iran’s wmd-terrorist-state-puppet in Syria and declare a “re-set” with Vladimir “KGB” Putin’s Russia. Continue reading
“Never to fly on the airline again…”
One of the few survivors still alive from the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor found himself one of two passengers thrown off his flight to attend the Honolulu memorial service citing the anniversary of the sneak attack, as reported by Fox59.com of Indianapolis. To add insult to injury, the other passenger bounced was reportedly confined to a wheelchair.

I didn’t mean to be at the computer so late this evening. But if I hadn’t been, I wouldn’t have seen this story.
It’s a simple story (even if every one of us knows that no one’s story is really simple). It’s a sailor’s story. A vet’s story. If you’ve ever served in uniform, you can imagine being there.
It starts in uncompromising fashion:
After signing my Pop, EM2 Bud Cloud (circa Pearl Harbor) up for hospice care, Continue reading
Sometimes no matter how hard America’s freedom fighters try to be the good guys that they really are, certain people manage to find fault, as reported by Fox News on Dec. 4, 2013.
Be Careful Over the Senkaku Islands, Santa…
The good folks at the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) are ensuring both al Qaeda terrorists and possibly the Chinese Air Force steer clear of knocking Santa, his team of reindeer, and sleigh full of presents for the good little girls and boys are smoked out of the Christmas Eve skies.
“This follows a pattern of fumbled reactions by the Obama administration…”
War clouds are gathering in the East China Sea as the Beijing government as sent a none-too-veiled threat to Tokyo over the now-disputed international airspace, as well as airspace over sovereign Japanese soil at the very south of the East Asian nation, as reported by The Washington Free Beacon on Dec. 3, 2013.
Who would have ever guessed it? Dayna Morales, the New Jersey waitress who fabricated a tale about receiving an anti-gay message from a customer, has a history of mendacity — which is a polite way of saying she is a pathological liar.
After her sob story about being stiffed by a couple who disapproved of her lifestyle was proven false, reporters began digging into Morales’s past.
Iranian Kilo submarine Younus (Yunes)
A couple of years ago, the Iranian navy announced it had deployed a submarine to the Red Sea as part of its patrol force there. We can’t be sure (from out here in Unclassified World) how many times submarines have deployed to the Red Sea since. It’s probably not many; Iran does better now with her Russian-built, Kilo-class submarines than she used to, in terms of keeping them ready and deployable, but her performance still wouldn’t be called great.

“History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap.” — Ronald Reagan
It made the most news when China did it a few days ago. But it’s been building for a while, and it’s not just off China. As the holidays settle in on us, probes of other nations’ sea and air space are in the air. Is war coming tomorrow? No. But whether it comes after tomorrow will depend on more than gestures from that shapeless blob of geopolitical potential that we may now, in a post-superpower world, call the “status quo powers.” Continue reading
But I’ll bet the Appeaser-in-Chief keeps this “you-can-keep-your-policy” promise unlike the one made to Americans under the domestic equivalent of the bomb, known as Obamacare.
President Barack Obama is a serial liar but, like a stopped clock, occasionally also tells the truth.
Fifty years ago today a WWII hero that stared down the Soviet Union during the Cold War’s Cuban Missile Crisis apogee was murdered by Communist.
Watching much of the news coverage from that time and since, you might conclude that President John Fitzgerald Kennedy had been assassinated by racist Southerners in Texas, thanks to the far left in the Democratic Party and the news media they dominated then and continue to dominate today.
USS Gettysburg (CG-64), displaying the Gettysburg Flag (upper right)
The indefatigable LU Staff highlighted today an egregious omission from President Obama’s video-recorded reading of the Gettysburg Address: the dropping of the words “under God” from the final sentence. As Staff points out, Obama has a pattern of cutting out references to God from passages well known to the American public.
But other Americans commemorate the great battle and Lincoln’s beloved speech differently. Consider, for example, the recitation of the Gettysburg Address by the crew of the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72), Continue reading
Only this past weekend was the news released of a former Guantanamo Bay detainee held by the Israeli government for three years after he crossed the Jordanian border into the West Bank to train terrorists to construct and employ biological weapons against Israel, as reported by the Jewish Press on Nov. 18, 2013 and the Jerusalem Post on Nov. 17, 2013.
