VE Day Anniversary: What if the Greatest Generation Had Simply Declared Victory and Gone Home?

In the lead-up to World War II and throughout the war President Franklin Delano Roosevelt prepared Americans for a war to preserve our way of life, not to simply reclaim the territory Hitler and his dark legions had conquered. Contrast that clarity with our situation today. Americans have never been told by their President that this is a religious and cultural war and, most importantly, Americans have never heard from their President that we are in a war for the preservation of western civilization with a foe every bit has ruthless and genocidal as Hitler’s Nazis.

Parents of Killed SEAL Urge Obama to Resign

The parents of a SEAL Team Six member who was killed when his helicopter was shot down over Afghanistan have penned a letter to Obama, calling into question the commander-in-chief’s leadership abilities and saying outright that he ought to resign. 

There Are No “Good Guy” Radical Islamists in Iraq

Obama’s policy makers like President George W. Bush’s before them have failed to grasp the real lesson we should have learned from the rise of the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan. The enemy is not a nation state or a government, but the idea of Islamic supremacy deeply ingrained in Muslim culture.

What if the Greatest Generation Had Declared Victory and Gone Home?

It is long past time for our leaders to tell Americans the truth about the war we are in -- the war the radical Islamist jihadis declared on us -- and to mobilize the full weight of our national power and culture for the battles to come.

The Bergdahl Trade’s Greatest Damage

As the media readily promotes the line that Bowe Bergdahl left his post because America is the oppressor in Afghanistan, the misogynistic Hell that the Taliban made is conveniently forgotten – replaced by Bergdahl’s strange identification with the enemy.

Greg Campbell, Tea Party News Network

A Pentagon report clearly indicates that as early as 2010, the DOD knew that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had deserted his unit. This means that the Obama Administration had long known that Bergdahl was a deserter and still traded 5 dangerous terrorists for the release of a man who deserted his unit.

Useful Idiots and the Strange Release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl

Totalitarian movements, like radical Islam, always require “useful idiots,” such as Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's father, Robert Bergdahl, to help convince the people about to be enslaved that their soon-to-be totalitarian masters are saviors, not oppressors.

Obama Outs CIA Agent: None Dare Call It Treason

This is about winning a war and in war incompetence of this magnitude verges on treason.  Losing the CIA Station Chief in Afghanistan because his cover has been blown by the Obama White house deprives the US of one our most experienced and valuable assets in the still hot war in one of the major centers of radical Islam.

Ukraine: Time for Europeans To Take Over Europe’s Defense

Putin is wrong, dangerously wrong.  But how to punish Moscow?  America’s direct stake in the controversy between Russia and Ukraine is essentially nil.
