News and Commentary for September 11

index

We will not forget, and we will continue to fight.

Big Government:

Orwellian. This should send chills up and down every American’s spine: Our Federal Family

Insanity. A green military? Really? Sequestration Nation: DOD Doles Out $7 Billion in Wind Energy Contracts

The Religion of Peace:

Taxed for your religion. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood to Coptic Christians: Convert to Islam, or Pay ‘Jizya’ Tax

Where’s the Media?

Remember when the media led every nightly news program with a death count? Not anymore. It doesn’t fit the narrative. The 12-Year War: 73% of U.S. Casualties in Afghanistan on Obama’s Watch

Obamacare:

“How Big Medicine will restrict doctors’ freedom to practice and patients’ ability to receive care.” How Big Business Will Affect Patient Care

Fraud. “Will Democrats Vote to Verify Who is Eligible for Obamacare?” Stopping ObamaCare Fraud

“Over the next decade, the cost of the law’s new entitlements will soar more than fivefold, from $48 billion in 2014 to $250 billion in 2023.” America Must Stop Obamacare Now before It Becomes Hazardous to Our Health

Syria:

Can it be made sense of? Peggy Noonan: Making Sense of Syria

He didn’t. “So what should President Obama say when he addresses the country Tuesday night? He could start by apologizing to President Bush for years of cheap slander.” Stephens: The Bed Obama and Kerry Made

You think? Allen West Nails It: Obama has Shown Incompetence and Weakness

Why is it taking so long? “But Obama bears more responsibility than he is willing to admit, and polls show a growing number of voters are questioning his leadership.” Syria Tells You Everything You Need to Know about Barack Obama

“The speech was exceptionally revealing in the logical disconnect that plagues his policy.” Obama’s Syria Speech an Illogical Argument from a Paralyzed President

Criticism is the same across the board. Barack Obama’s Syria Speech was an Incoherent Mess and He’s Outperforming Jimmy Carter as the Most Feeble U.S. President of Modern Times

Chilling words from a wise historian about what American weakness abroad will surely bring. “I can tell you. Kennedy went to Vienna in ’62, and Khrushchev ate him alive. And he said he savaged me. That’s his exact words. And then we had the Cuban Missile Crisis. And Carter did the same thing – human rights, nobody’s going to die on my watch, no inordinate affair, and they watched it. And suddenly, Soviets in Afghanistan, hostages in Tehran, Communists in Central America, China invading Vietnam. So I would think that what we need to do as a country is brace, get our allies together, get a bipartisan group, and say you know what? We are going to be challenged. As sure as the sun comes up, somebody has looked at this President, and we need to protect the interests of the United States not in an obscure, not in an unessential place like Syria, but somewhere big, big, and I think it’ll be in Korea or Taiwan or with Iran or something. But it’s coming.” Victor Davis Hanson: President’s Speech and America’s Dilemma

The oddest speech given by a president. Obama’s Speech as Confused as His Policy

“Some critics are even comparing the collapse of American influence under Obama to the end of the Soviet Union. Well, that may be an exaggeration — but Obama promised a “fundamental transformation,” after all.” Obama is a Laughing Stock

“Popular myths about the Iraq War aren’t good arguments against our intervening in Syria.” Syria and the Specter of Iraq

“He sold his plan for bombing Syria on flawed political assumptions.” Obama’s Farce

“Come witness the Master Diplomat use his silvery tongue to insult the very people whose support he’s asking for.” The Master Diplomat, Seeking Support from a Rival Nation (Republicans), Chooses to Insult Them

“It is hard to overstate how much of a debacle Syria has been for America. The damage we have sustained is deep and durable. The balance of power has shifted dramatically against America. It may take decades for us to undo the damage, if even that is possible.” Obama’s Syria Debacle Inflicts Historic Damage on America

Liberalism is Failing Us:

“Either way, this nation desperately needs to discredit utterly the political faith of its liberal ruling class by November 2016. Because until that happens, America is stuck in an authoritarian administrative time warp of foreign policy irrelevance and domestic policy train wrecks.” Discredit Liberalism Utterly

“Social liberalism is the foremost impulse for zealous regulation in America.” The Myth of Live-and-Let-Live Liberalism

Common Core:

Between what information will be collected because of Obamacare, and now this, Americans should be VERY worried. Common Core: Parents Refused Right to Opt Out of Children’s Private Data Sharing

Colorado and Gun Rights:

“A grassroots effort delivered an unprecedented blow to gun-control advocates.” A Famous Victory in Colorado
