Obama Shows Why He Can't Beat ISIL

Erick Erickson, Red State

Both the progressive ideology and ISIL end up in much the same place: progressive, secular utopia always ends in totalitarianism. It always ends in a police state where the state controls freedom. The victims of the utopia may be different from ISIL’s utopia, but there are still victims.

Obama’s New Containment Policy vs. Reagan’s Doctrine of “We Win, They Lose”

Obama Advisor: The Muslim “Caliphate” is Inevitable

If the Islamist global Caliphate is “inevitable” it is only because the Obama administration has, through naïve and foolish political correctness, adherence to a dangerously cynical political agenda – or the penetration of Islamist agents of influence – allowed the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS to reach critical mass and make it so.
