  • The Process of United States Islamification

  • The Kidnapping of Mrs. Curry

    Nineteen-eighty was a tense time to be living in Europe.  Eighty people were killed when a Red Brigade terrorist detonated a bomb at the Bologna railway station in Italy. Later that year during Oktoberfest, the Red Faction and remnants of | Read More »

  • Peace through Capitulation: A False Peace at Best

    An excellent example of what happens when a free and democratic nation adopts a weak defense policy is illustrated by Great Britain’s reaction to Hitler’s rise to power in the 1930’s. Chamberlain, then Prime Minister of Great Britain, was so | Read More »

  • White House Reflections

    Last month my wife, Lady Char and I drove past the White House for what was to be her last time, before the cancer meanly took her away from me. When we were two little kids growing up in the | Read More »

  • Soldier Code: Remember The Star From The East

    It was the end of the day. The bloated bodies of the dead North and South Vietnamese soldiers baked under the cruel equatorial sun and littered the jungle hillside surrounding Captain Larry McNamara’s position like rotting clumps of jellyfish spit | Read More »

  • Sharia & The Constitution: Never the Twain Shall Meet

    Let me begin by saying something some may find quite controversial. To assume that Muslims appreciate and accept the same moral values as those cherished by our Founders is insanity bordering on stupidity. Consider that Islamic cultures embrace and institutionalize | Read More »

  • Freedom and Islam: Compatible or Contradictory?

    In this great country one of our most cherished freedoms is freedom of religion and we Americans go the extra mile in extending that freedom to others. We have even gone so far as to honor the Muslim religion of | Read More »

  • Obama The Muslim

    My mother believed in “common sense” testing. She said if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, waddles like a duck and acts like a duck; it’s a duck. She believed that actions speak louder than words and | Read More »

  • The Obama, McChrystal Set-Up

    By now everyone knows the story, or at least they think they do. A careless, loose-lipped general’s staff celebrates a little too much one evening at the bar. Listening in on their unguarded comments is Rolling Stone Magazine reporter Michael | Read More »

  • Rules of Engagement

    During the Viet Nam War several Viet Cong engaged our forces in a running fire fight and when we finally closed in for the kill they fled into in a Buddhist Pagoda and hid. I turned to my South Vietnamese | Read More »

  • Jerusalem v. Danzig – Palestine v. Sudetenland

    Artificially cobbled together cities and nation states usually fail to maintain historical cohesion. Forced reconciliatory attempts result in temporary, unstable arrangements which do more harm than good in the long run. Poland’s “Free City of Danzig” and Czechoslovakia’s “Sudetenland” are | Read More »

  • Good Muslim, Bad Muslim

    The counterinsurgency strategy being implemented by the United States in Afghanistan is based on building trust and making friends of local Afghan tribal and political leaders. Ideally once they learn they can trust us they will become more cooperative in | Read More »

  • Lies, Deceit and a Double Standard

  • Bring On The Oil Spill
