Timothy Goeglein spent nearly eight years in the White House as President George W. Bush’s key point of contact to American conservatives and the faith-based world and was frequently profiled in the national news media. But when a plagiarism scandal prompted his resignation, Goeglein chose not to dodge it but confront it, and was shown remarkable grace by the president. In fact, Bush showed more concern for Goeglein and his family than any personal political standing.
The New York Times, solidifying its position as the fish-wrap of record, sees fit on this tenth anniversary of the attack on America in which thousands of Americans died, and are still dying, to publish ruminations on this anniversary from Paul Krugman’s fevered mind. He concludes that 9-11 is a “shameful” episode in American history. I’ll let him tell you why.
President Obama is inserting his nose into the business of Texas by demanding the Supreme Court intervene and postpone the execution of an illegal alien from Mexico. It was an awful crime. Back in 1994, Mexican national Humberto Leal Garcia brutally raped and murdered a 16-year-old girl in San Antonio. There was no doubt of his guilt. Yet our president is trying to help this convicted murderer–who should not have been in our country in the first place–escape justice.
She’s done it before, but it’s always good to watch a pro at work. In this interview between MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell and Bush Administration National Security Advisor and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, she schools the recalcitrant revisionist newsman on the facts concerning Iraq.
How can liberals learn to love military forces that shamelessly defend America against her enemies? It’s called the Bin Laden Effect, and Andrew Klavan is here to explain it. Klavan contends Osama bin Laden utilized his free will to opt out of the humanity clause in the Social Contract. An interesting sidenote: Klavan says this was the first military non-disaster under a Democrat since the Cuban Missile Crisis. I think he might be right.
Bill Whittle’s latest Afterburner corrects some of the lies and propaganda spread by the “mainstream” media and other Leftists over the past 8-10 years about President Bush, the war on terrorism, the Iraq War and some other things. Some of the crap foisted by the Left which Whittle corrects: Mission Accomplished, taking his eye off the ball in Iraq, closing Gitmo, waterboarding, a gutsy call and more.
Though it may seem morbid to rejoice and celebrate over the killing of a person, his demise offers those afflicted by the tragedy of 9/11 an important sense of closure, and the men and women who have put their lives on the line in the War on Terror a feeling of great triumph. It also offers an opportunity for moderate Muslims to reclaim their faith from a man who hijacked it in the name of global jihad.
In a hastiliy-called late-night press conference from the White House, President Barack Obama announced to the American people that 911 terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden, on the run from the U.S. military for nearly 10 years, has finally been killed in Pakistan. Obama said a lead on bin Laden’s location came to light last August, and that today he had ordered a mission against a compound in Pakistan where American forces took possession of bin Laden’s body after a firefight.
Sean Hannity has been taking a look at the history of liberal media bias lately, and in this latest installment, he exposes the “mainstream” media bias in the Valerie Plame case several years ago. The entire exercise, from the “mainstream” media perspective, was smear Bush, get Bush, trash Bush, hurt Bush. There was no other purpose to the story, no other plot to the narrative.
Some Leftist can’t wait to use this tragedy as an excuse to rob law-abiding Americans of their Second Amendment freedom, but as reprehensible as that is, we have seen even worse behavior from the Left in the wake of this bloodshed. If the Left insists on continuing this boorish, shameless behavior, we cannot stop them. If they press on with writing their false charges against conservatives using as ink the blood of innocent people, we cannot prevent that. But we can expose them for the liars, the charlatains, the propaganda ministers, the craven opportunists that they are.

All the class envy filling the air over the impending end of the Bush tax cuts is pathetic, attempting to demonize and punish some Americans for being more successful. This video puts the current unfair Marxist progressive taxation system into a perspective that anyone can easily grasp (if they are interested in truth, that is). It also puts into crystal-clear perspective how incredibly greedy and petty the current tax cut/increase discussion is.
This actually came out yesterday but I didn’t get to it then, so we’ll still call it the Quote of the Day. It comes from President George W. Bush and his new book and recounts when he was asked by the CIA Director George Tenet about using waterboarding on terrorists to get life-saving information from them to prevent future attacks.
This entertaining video from the Heritage Foundation examines ways how the Democrats might try to put a positive spin on the fact that they are about to allow the Bush tax cuts to expire, amounting to a massive tax increase…at a time when our economy and the American people can least afford such socialist gouging.
As horrifying and shocking as the actual day that our country was attacked on September 11, 2001, was — this year seemed just as painful to many of us. As we wiped away our tears, and felt the ache in our hearts, we realized that our nation has been betrayed by a president who purposely ignores the will of the people while he undermines our nation’s security.
As usual, Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal provides great insight on the “what if” of whether we had taken the coward’s way out and allowed Saddam Hussein to continue defying U.S.-backed UN resolutions, firing on our our warplanes, funding terrorism, and working to reconstitute his WMD program. What do the lessons of the “unnecessary war” have to shed on the Iraq invasion?
If you keep a steady finger on the pulse of information, or if you have good friends who forward good information to you through email, you might just have become aware that President George W. Bush and his wife Laura recently went to the airport at Dallas/Fort Worth to greet some returning soldiers. This is a video of that touching moment. Thank God for President Bush and for the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Is it wise for President Obama – in the midst of a severe recession – to advocate for a policy that will, in effect, penalize economic success for the segment of American society most responsible for creating jobs – that is, America’s small business owners? The only way that such an approach makes sense is if you believe that government is a wiser steward of the American people’s money than the American people themselves – it only makes sense to those who prefer ideology over reality.
If history doesn’t help us in the world today it’s useless. We might as well study tea leaves if we can’t learn from the past to live in the present and shape the future. If we don’t learn the lessons of history, one day we’ll wake up to hear a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen, Babylon the great is fallen!”
Krauthammer compares and contrasts Obama’s hesitant, reticent stance on prosecuting the war, with President Bush’s decisive commitment:”You’ve got a sense of a man who wants to put a toe in the water, who wants to give it a shot, but he’s ready to leave.” This demeanor will undoubtedly strike fear into the hearts of our enemies.
Most of us have been told by our parents at one point or another that telling the truth is always the best policy. They probably also told us that it’s a whole lot more simple to just tell the truth–remembering your lies, especially when you have to start telling more lies to cover your lies, […]
