The United States of Obama are imploding

The mess du jour is in the Ukraine; do messes closer to home matter?


North Korea has nukes and Iran either has them or is working diligently to get them. That’s easier now that sanctions have been diminished and Iran is “open for business.” China is becoming more aggressive and so is Russia. Yet … Continue reading

Ideology vs. reason and a constitutional crisis


Most sentient humans have ideological beliefs. When they become acceptable substitutes for rational thought they can be pernicious. Jonathan Turley, whom I consider a liberal in the old-fashioned sense and not what I refer to as a “librul,” today testified before … Continue reading

Why do the left generally support the Chavistas in Venezuela?


With three principal exceptions — Panamá, Colombia and Chile — Latin American governments are oriented toward the far left.  An article at Huff & Puff by a self-proclaimed leftist, Carlos González, argues than leftists should not automatically support dictators, even … Continue reading

The crisis in Venezuela broadens and deepens


As the day progresses, I expect there to be substantial activity in Venezuela. As I learn of it, updates will be provided here or through new posts. Few seem to know what to do. Perhaps Leopoldo Lopez does. According to … Continue reading

President Obama will issue an executive decree telling Iran what to do


The P5+1 deal with Iran, like ObamaCare and other laws of the land, means whatever He said (or may have meant to say) it means. As noted here and elsewhere, the P5+1 deal with Iran may not appear facially to provide for … Continue reading

The Iran Scam Continues


Neither the November 24th P5+1 “deal” nor the White House summary of the subsequent agreement to continue the process deals effectively with Iran’s efforts to have nuclear weapons. NOTE: I tried to address much of what follows when writing earlier about … Continue reading

The Middle East Clusterduck and Obama – Kerry Myopia
