With great fanfare and a nationwide, prime time presidential address to the American people President Obama announced the formation of a “broad coalition” that would wage war together to destroy the Islamic State also known as ISIS or ISIL. Although few other details were given about the coalition, a senior administration official said on Wednesday “we are very confident that this will be a broad-based coalition with countries from the Arab world, from Europe, but also other key allies around the globe, like, for instance, Australia, which has joined us in humanitarian airdrops already in Iraq; or Canada, which has already put advisers on the ground.” Continue reading
(’76 Contributor) Whatever our generation, we have watched and read many tales of daring and triumph. Our veterans, astronauts, scientists, and other heroes whom we honor achieved great wonders. We learned to believe that, however dire the challenges, “the good guys” win. Continue reading
President Obama thinks that history will magically take out all the bad guys in the world. He repeatedly lectures us that bad actors – people like Vladimir Putin, Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad, the vicious ISIS beheader of two American journalists, and anyone else who is giving him downward poll spiral headaches are “on the wrong side of history.” Continue reading
The official response of the Obama administration to the recent beheading of two Americans in Syria by ISIS has been muddled at best. The often timid and tepid statements by various White House spokesmen, the State Department, and even the President himself in response to these specific tragedies and the general threats poised by ISIS have been vague, confusing, contradictory, and sometimes downright silly.

Impeachment is the process by which an official of the government is charged with criminal action. Over 10% of the world’s nation have impeachment provisions. The US Constitution established the process by which impeachment is conducted in the United States.

“Governor Sarah Palin is the most influential woman in the history of the Republican party,” said Dan Caplis of KNUS moments before the Alaskan icon took the stage at the WCS 2014. “She stands before you today undeterred and undefeated,” said Caplis.
Glad to be back in the Mile High City, Palin went straight to work doing what she does best: breaking things down to common sense, something she called an endangered species in Washington.
Fortune cookies and Mark Udall have more in common than Colorado’s Democrat U.S. Senator might like to admit. Continue reading
It can be disheartening to witness the all-too-frequent over-extensions committed by President Barack Obama and his hyperactive executive branch as he casually lopes around constitutional fences en route to his vision for the country. But it’s refreshing to watch the Supreme Court jerk the reins. Continue reading
President Barack Obama, whose power abuses have played a role in the imperilment of tens of thousands of children and earned him slaps by the U.S. Supreme Court and the threat of a lawsuit by House Republicans, has promised more of the same. Continue reading
