Obama’s Clever Plan

Over the summer, the TSA did an investigation, and found that 73 of their employees were on the terrorist watch list.  These are people whose identities are tracked in a US government database, yet a US government agency couldn’t identify them and prevent them from getting jobs where they have access to sensitive areas in US airports.

But I think I’m starting to see what President Obama’s real strategy is for fighting ISIS.  After all, his air campaign was a miserable failure, to the point that he has the CIA management scrubbing his intel reports to hide how bad things are getting over there.

For years now, our foreign intelligence capabilities have degenerated under President Obama’s ‘leadership.’  At the same time, our domestic surveillance capabilities go far beyond anything ever seen in our history.  By using this refugee crisis to import ISIS terrorists into America, President Obama ensures that the NSA has the capability to keep tabs on each and every one of them, eavesdropping on their phone calls, reading their emails, etc. – something that we don’t have the capability to do if they stay in the Middle East.

Pretty clever, no?


Refugee Stupidity

My latest column is up at AND Magazine.

Here is an excerpt.


In February of this year, ISIS announced to the world that a refugee crisis was coming, and that the refugees would destabilize Europe. Apparently, very few leaders in Europe were paying attention, because most European nations rushed to welcome these refugees with open arms, essentially welcoming their own demise.

On the morning of Friday, November 13, 2015, President Obama stated on national television that ISIS had been contained.

By that evening (on Friday the 13th, of all days), ISIS terrorists had killed over 100 people in Paris, proving in the most tangible way possible that President Obama has no idea what he’s talking about where ISIS is concerned.

Some of the attackers in Paris were refugees from Syria, or had masqueraded as refugees to get into France.

The Obama administration, and nearly the entire Democrat Party seems to be living in a dream world. Even after a series of coordinated terrorist attacks in the heart of France, President Obama insists that we MUST bring Syrian refugees into the United States. He insists that these refugees will be vetted, and assures us that everything will be fine.

Affiliation With The Ass

My latest column is up at AND Magazine.

Here is an excerpt:

Over the course of the last two decades, the mainstream U.S. media has gone from being one of the world’s most trusted institutions to being one of the last places people go for reliable information. The current election cycle has been no exception.

Of the last three Republican primary debates, clashes between the media moderators and the candidates have carried the headlines. Even the Fox News debate, hosted by the so-called right-wing media giant, turned into an all-out cat fight between Fox’s Megyn Kelly and Republican candidate Donald Trump. The CNN debate, by far the fairest of the three, ran advertising for weeks before the debate likening the event to a boxing match – and throughout, the moderators sought to pit the candidates against each other, rather than calling on them to address substantive issues.

But it was the third debate that was the last straw for many Republicans, as what CNBC had advertised as a debate on economics turned out to be a laughably ridiculous series of “gotcha” questions.

Lessons Learned

My latest column is up at AND Magazine!

Here is an excerpt:

Last week, the Democrat presidential candidates gathered for a “debate,” except that it wasn’t as much a debate as it was a contest to see which candidate will bring about America’s economic ruin the fastest. After watching this exhibition in stupidity, which would have been better suited to the common area of the nearest nursing home than to nationwide prime-time television, here are a few things that I have learned about the Democrats’ warped and twisted version of reality.

1. It doesn’t matter how much money we spend!

One of the hallmarks of this election cycle is that the Democrats are (in their own subtle way) finally admitting to their own extremism. While they have spent years pointing fingers at Republicans, shouting that any right-of-center moderate is a racist, bigoted, homophobic, xenophobic terrorist just because they suggest that the government maybe should consider spending a tiny bit less money, the Democrats are going full-blown socialist this time around.

The two front-runners are Bernie Sanders, an unapologetic socialist, and Hillary Clinton, who is just as much a socialist as Sanders, but chooses to call herself a “progressive,” due to the well-deserved stigma surrounding socialism.

Much of the debate ended up being a contest to see who could pledge to hand out the most freebies:

  • Free immigration! No more borders, just come on in!
  • Free health care! Especially for all of those illegal immigrants flooding across the border we just opened up!
  • In-State Tuition for illegal immigrants! Because everyone knows that sneaking across international borders in the dead of night is just like being the citizen of a state!
  • Free college! Because we’ve watered down our education system to the point where even a 4-year degree is practically meaningless, so why not hand them out to whomever wants one?

There were more, of course, but is it really worth dragging you through the entire list? By the end of the debate, I was a little surprised that we weren’t witnessing a slug-fest between the Free Puppies and Free Kittens platforms.

Obama’s Call for Politicization

In response to the school shooting in Oregon, President Obama called for Americans to politicize these tragedies:

In response to President Obama’s call for politicization, I am donating to the NRA.  I urge other freedom-loving Americans to do the same.

Based on media reports, this monster was targeting Christians for execution.  It is the laws and policies of the Democrats that left all of those people defenseless in the face of evil.  I have the natural right to defend myself and my family, and so should every other law-abiding citizen of this nation.  One of my greatest fears is that one day soon, my government will pass a law that makes me a felon if I stand up for my 2nd Amendment rights.  In the state of California, that day gets closer and closer every year, as the Democrat-controlled legislature passes more and more anti-gun laws that restrict my freedoms.

Stand up for your freedoms.  Donate today.

Poor, Pitiful Ahmed

From the beginning, I thought this story about the Irving, Texas kid with the homemade clock sounded weird.  I can understand school teachers and administrators reacting to something that potentially looks like bomb components brought on campus by a student…these days, they HAVE to react, both under zero-tolerance policies, which seem to be everywhere, and just under common sense – if officials fail to react, and something tragic happens, they WILL be held to account.  The police that were called to the school reported that the kid was acting sketchy, and wouldn’t give direct answers to their questions.


Throw in the fact that just days before, on the 14th anniversary of 9/11, there was a bomb scare at a high school in Plano – less than an hours’ drive from Irving – and the assumption that teachers, administrators, and law enforcement officers were targeting this kid over his race or religion become absolutely ridiculous.  We both expect and require teachers and administrators to do what is necessary to keep our kids safe, and under the circumstances, they did exactly the right thing.

If school officials had done nothing, and a week or two from now, Ahmed Muhammed decided ISIS was the shit and chose to attach some explosives to his clock and detonate it at his school, the very same people who are now accusing the teachers, administrators, and cops of overreaction and “Islamophobia” are the ones who would be demanding to know why they didn’t stop him when he brought a fake bomb to school.

I’ve paid close attention to politics plenty long enough for it to make me more than a little cynical, and when I heard that the kid’s dad has basically made it his profession to accuse others of “Islamophobia,” I knew there had to be more to the story.  The dad, by the way, recently made this statement:

“My kid was hurt and was tortured and arrested and mistreated in front of his friends inside of the school,” he said. “That is not America. That is not like us. We love to be in Irving, Texas. We love it and we love our people here.”

Hurt.  Tortured.  Mistreated.  Those are pretty serious accusations.  This man is accusing school teachers and administrators of torturing a 14-year-old kid, with absolutely no evidence.  Frankly, I think the school district should sue the father for leveling these charges, because I can guarantee you that while the kid may have been embarrassed and a little uncomfortable, there was no torture.  Yet another reason why this stinks to high heaven.

And then, I found this (these guys may be running their site on Hillary Clinton’s home-baked email server, as it isn’t that robust, but if you have trouble accessing the site, keep trying, it’s worth it).

You see, the entire basis of the “Islamophobia” charge is that this kid has a passion for electronics and engineering, and as a personal project, he built a clock, which he then took to school with him to show to his engineering teacher.  This narrative gave President Obama his opening to exploit the situation for his own political gain, inviting Ahmed to the White House.

If you haven’t read the story at the link up above, here is a brief summary: the “homemade clock” that Ahmed had in his pencil case wasn’t homemade at all.  To paraphrase President Obama, “Ahmed didn’t build that, somebody else made that happen.”

The “homemade clock” was just the guts from an old clock that you can get for about $30 on ebay, taken apart and stuck it inside a pencil case that is essentially a small briefcase…you know, the kind of thing someone would do if they were constructing a briefcase bomb.


So this kid took an old 1970s era clock, made a fake bomb out of it, and school officials are the evil ones for detaining and questioning him over it?

This whole thing is a hoax; the only question is why?  Was the kid just trying to impress his teacher, maybe for a better grade, and things got out of hand?  Did his media attention whore of a father think up the scheme in an attempt to get himself back into the public eye?

We may never know the real truth.

Either way, it is the American people who are harmed the most by this hoax.  Chances are very good that the left-wing media’s narrative that this is just an innocent kid with a love of science & engineering who was unfairly targeted by school officials will prevail – it has been repeated ad nauseum for days now, with the school officials and law enforcement officers being judged and found guilty for their assumed Islamophobia (they are from Texas, after all, and Texans are assumed to be the most vile, racist rednecks anywhere).  Ahmed will visit the White House and meet with President Obama, who will shamelessly use the young man for his own political ends, as he seeks to convince America and the world that all white people are intrinsically racist…even as he seeks to bring tens of thousands of Syrian refugees here, even though we know that ISIS is using the refugee crisis as a cover to get terrorists into the West, as well as a method to overwhelm Western governments, so they can continue to their genocide of Christians and expand their territory even further.

So what message does this send?  If you see a Muslim acting suspiciously, don’t speak up.  Don’t alert the (racist) authorities.  Just avert your eyes and walk away, because those warning bells are just the racist in you triggering your fear of The Other.

And if you’re right, and people end up being killed, at least you can take comfort in the fact that you weren’t being Islamophobic.

Have We Forgotten

My latest column is up at AND Magazine.

Here is an excerpt:

I will never forget the morning of September 11, 2001. Waking up that morning, getting ready to go to work, and the world just seemed to stop as we saw the news that a plane had flown into the World Trade Center. The horror when we watched the second plane hit; the jarring realization that we were under attack. The subsequent news of the attack on the Pentagon, and that yet another plane had gone down in Pennsylvania.

The world had just changed.

Living in California, nearly 3,000 miles away, these events seemed surreal and far away, yet at the same time shockingly real and close-to-home. It felt like moving through a thick fog, as I tried to figure out how I should react to what I had just seen. Would there be more attacks? Was it safe to go to work?

All through that day, we went through the motions, with the radio or the TV on, paying more attention to the news than to our work, waiting for some glimmer of hope, fearing that we would hear of yet another attack.

In the days and weeks that followed, we came together as a nation, from sea to shining sea. We wept. We prayed.

We solemnly pledged that we would never forget.
