Ding! Dong! Bin Ladin’s Dead!

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

About the best tag line I can come up with. For the first time in his life, Barack Obama got something right. He gave the order to take out bin Ladin. Most of the puzzle pieces that allowed Obama to bring this pig down were identified and assembled during the Bush ...

David Green Hates Patriotism

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

Yesterday I ran across a piece on Big Piece by Mark Seavey concerning (and excerpting) an editorial by David Green that had been published earlier this week in the Daily Illini. Green was writing about a patriotic incident at a football game, where there was a military flyover and some ...

Underwear Bomber Scores Tactical Victory For Al Qaeda

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

Yeah, that's right, even though the bomb failed to detonate, our side failed to stop him from getting into position where he could set it off to begin with. Al-Qaeda has claimed responsibility for the blown attack. Janet Napolitano at first claimed our anti-terrorist system worked, then backtracked and admitted it ...

Obama Political Failure #28

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

I've been "missing in action" for most of November, trying to figure out what I want to write for nanowrimo, and missing out writing on too many current events. The Obama Administration has determined that Khalid Sheik Mohammad, mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, will be tried in a criminal court in ...

Deserters, Germany, and Occupation

Friday, January 30th, 2009

For several years now the Left has been demanding an end to the "occupation" of Iraq but have been mute on the 60+ year occupation of Germany. Now I know why. From FoxNews: The 31-year-old former mechanic of the 601st Aviation Support Battalion is enjoying perks that eluded him back home ...

Britain Accomodates al-Sadr

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

I ran across this initially on Michelle Malkin's blog, and am as stunned as she is that the politicians running the U.K. would pull a Neville Chamberlain by brokering a deal with Muqtada al-Sadr that resulted in British troops in Iraq sitting on the sidelines while the recent Battle of ...

Muqtada al-Sadr – Dude is Looney

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

Terrorist leader Muqtada al-Sadr is making the news again, this time claiming he is turning his "Mahdi Army" terrorist organization into a civic group, and disarming them. Is he sincere in this new move and direction for his terrorist corps? Or is it all a lot of talk? From FoxNews: In a ...

Today IS Carbon Belch Day

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

How big is your carbon footprint today? I wrote about Carbon Belch Day last week, and nearly forgot that today is THE day. Turn on the lights, lower the thermastat (unless you need heat, then raise that puppy), leave the computers on, and whatever else will make your day. Carbon Belch Day

Iran: Nukes For Terrorists

Monday, June 9th, 2008

Betting again that I am right on Iran, the Ayatollah Khamenei has announced that terrorists will soon have access to nuclear weapons. He refrained from naming the sponsor of terror that will provide the terrorists with the materials necessary to build a bomb (Uranium-235 or Plutonium). I can hazard a ...

Two Iranian-backed Terrorist Leaders Surrender In Iraq

Friday, June 6th, 2008

From FoxNews: Two suspected Shiite militia leaders surrendered Friday during American raids on their homes south of Baghdad, the U.S. military said. One ...

U.S. Forces Battling al-Sadr’s Mahdi Terrorists, Again

Friday, March 28th, 2008

This week has seen a rise in violence in Iraq, especially in Basra and in/around Baghdad. When airstrikes are called in, that's indicative of an escalation. The Green Zone had been pretty quiet until this new upsurge in terrorism. From FoxNews: Anger has been growing since the Iraqi government launched a ...

Lest We Forget – Gregory Rundell

Friday, March 28th, 2008

Minnesota has lost another son in the war on Terror in Iraq this week. I don't always write about these fine and courageous young soldiers; there are many other voices out there doing a better job of it than I can ever do. Army Spc. Gregory B. Rundell, a 21-year old ...

Vets For Freedom at the Fort Snelling Officers Club

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

"Let them win," was how Master Gunner Tom Parks put it last night at the Fort Snelling Officer's Club. These three simple words sum up the overall feeling of the standing-room only crowd that attended the Vets For Freedom Tour event. The reasons to win are numerous and critical; "Let ...

Vets For Freedom Forest Lake Event Cancelled

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

The Vets for Freedom Tour, which has been traveling across the country for a couple of weeks now, has had one of its stops cancelled. Not in Berkeley, the land of Moonbats, where one is accustomed to having everything under the sun politicized, but in Minnesota, the Land of the ...

Muqtada al-Sadr Still Biding Time

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

The other day I was greeted with an article that the terrorist Muqtada al-Sadr may end his sixth month cease-fire. The update on Fox News is that al-Sadr is not quite ready "to rumble." From FoxNews: "According to an order by Sayyid Muqtada, activities of the Mahdi Army will be suspended ... ...

Brits Nail al-Qaeda Online Propagandist

Wednesday, January 16th, 2008

I read with interest about the arrest and conviction in the U.K. of Younes Tsouli, an al-Qaeda linked IT student who was responsible for pushing al-Qaeda propaganda, including videos of the kidnapping and murder of hostages such as Nick Burg in Iraq. Tsouli, the son of a Moroccan diplomat, was ...

House Dems Vote Surrender, Again

Thursday, November 15th, 2007

The U.S. House of Representatives has yet again passed an Iraq Surrender Bill, this time tying $50 billion of funding to a requirement to draw down troop levels (which is already in the works) and ending combat by 2008. That last is a signal to terrorists, sectarian death squads, and ...

Clifford May On Tough Talk We Should Hear

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

Reading the editorial page in the Star Tribune is hit or miss; Jekyll or Hyde; Night or day. A couple of days ago it was Syl Jones moonbatting about the war in Iraq and the Bush Administration. That's the night, the Mr. Hyde, the miss. Today it is a piece ...

ANSWER and Gathering Of Eagles Coming Soon

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

There are times when I wish I had more ability to travel long distances, but hey, like most Americans, I have to work for a living and I have a family to take care of. Cybercast news Service has a piece discussing the pro-terrorist demonstration scheduled to take place in Washington ...
