This is the Result of an Obscure Movie? Really?

If Team Obama can’t get this basic fact right, we cannot seriously expect them to get anything else right.

Despite the overwhelming facts, the Administration continues to pretend that the attack on the American consulate in Libya on September 11, 2012 was a spontaneous protest of Muslim offended by a YouTube video.

Independent media reports say that Libyan security officials warned US officials of the risks of attack three days before the attack. Libyan governmental and military officials confirm this. Read more

Media Upset that Violence in Middle East Is Distracting from Story They Want to Tell

The mainstream media is treating the ongoing Middle East turmoil as an unfortunate distraction from the “real story” that they would like to shove down the public’s throat – that Mitt Romney is incompetent. The media’s tortured narrative ignores the facts and relies upon double standards so offensive that even the truly dull-witted and see the fallacy.

Reporters are incensed that Romney would “politicize” a matter of national security. However, that is a shockingly dishonest narrative because these same reporters filed zero news stories in 2008 criticising then-candidate Barack Obama when he regularly and opportunistically used every death or bit of bad news out of Iraq as an excuse to promote himself and attack Hillary, Bush and McCain who were more supportive of the Iraq war than Obama.

Skipping More than Half of His Security Briefings and Leading from Behind

by George Landrith

On the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, two American embassies (or consulates) were attacked and breached – one in Libya and one in Egypt. Four American diplomats were assassinated by these coordinated attacks. We now know that security was almost non-existent in Libya and that at least some of the locally hired security detail actually helped the attackers locate and target our diplomats. And clearly the security at our Embassy in Cairo was insufficient as a mob breached the embassy’s walls and stormed the embassy, removing, destroying and burning the American flag and replacing it with al Qaeda’s flag and putting the Americans in the embassy at risk. And just today, in Yemen, hundreds of “protestors” stormed the American embassy chanting “death to America” and tore down the flag, burned it, and put American diplomats at risk. The extremists are now emboldened. Read more

Four Years of Projected Weakness: Death and Attacks on US Embassies

“We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” – Obama Administration

“I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi (Libya).” – Obama Statement (No mention was made of the act of war when the Muslim Brotherhood attacked the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt.)

On the 11th Anniversary of the September 11th attacks, the American Embassy in Egypt and the American Consolate in Libya were attacked in what had to be coordinated and planned efforts. Read more

Lasting Lessons of September 11, 2001

by George Landrith

When Ronald Reagan was asked what his plan was for dealing with the communist threat, he responded, “We win, they lose.” Those four words led to an impressive victory for human freedom around the world. To this day, there are boulevards named after Reagan all over the world in nations that were once dominated and enslaved by communism’s hatred of freedom and lust for control.

In an extemporaneous moment at ground zero, President George Bush said, “I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!” Because reasonable people can argue in good faith with some of Bush’s decisions in his efforts to protect America, it is perhaps too easy to forget some of the unassailable truths we learned or were reminded of on September 1, 2001.  Read more

Does anyone really understand what $16 trillion is?

$16 TRILLION is an astronomical number. If you were to count from 1 to 1 million without stopping (assuming about 1 second per number on average), it would take about 12 days. If you were to count to 1 billion, it would take about 32 years. And if you were to count to 1 trillion, it would take about 31,710 years. And to count out the dollars of our current national debt of more than $16 trillion, it would take more than 507,357 years of counting one number each second without ever stopping. The point is — a trillion is a HUGE, GARGANTUAN number and 16 trillion is completely off the charts. We must have a serious national debate about cutting government spending. And then we must dramatically cut spending before we become the next Greece. We cannot delay.

China’s Hazardous Present and Uncertain Future

By Dr.  Miklós K. Radványi

Regardless of their shades, dictatorships universally worship might.  For this fundamental reason, the precarious existence of every revolutionary regime rests on two essential criteria – veneration of those who command power and faith in their ability to perpetuate the status quo.  Having attained absolute power by force in 1949, the Communist Party of China had governed the most populous nation on earth by the myth of the infallibility of either a single individual or a seemingly homogeneous leadership.  For almost three decades, the centralization of political, economic, social and cultural powers by an inexperienced, incompetent and self-appointed minority had resulted not only in political destruction and economic ruin, but also in pervasive corruption and immorality.

China’s Approaching Implosion

By: Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi

From its genesis until its overthrow on February 12, 1912, imperial China was driven throughout its history by a permanent tension between the despotic state’s boundless hostility toward society and the violent anti-state sentiments of society.  The result of this uncompromising and—at times— merciless antagonism between the omnipotent state and the ruthlessly oppressed society was a political culture in which absolute power alternated between the terribly powerful bureaucracy and the frightfully brutalized people.

Solyndra in Space

The once great American space program is on life support. We now pay the Russians $65 million per seat to take our astronauts to and from the space station. And the Obama Administration’s current unimaginative and amateurish vision for space exploration — even if successful — will not revive the dying program. It merely follows the disturbing pattern of the Solyndra scandal, funneling tax dollars to Obama donors and fundraisers. Read more

The Arab World’s Troubled Existence

Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi

More often than men would like it, history has the annoying habit of repeating itself.  Thus, already in 1985, the Sudanese people had a disappointing experience with the “Arab Spring” of their own making.  Back then they overthrew Jafaar al-Numeiri’s military dictatorship that during its decade and a half reign brought Sudan to the brink of political chaos and economic ruin.  Finally, after a hiatus of four turbulent years, the people’s revolution was hijacked by an alliance of the military headed by Omar Hassan al-Bashir and the fundamentalist Islamists led by Hassan Abdullah al-Turaki.  Subsequently, Sudan became a thoroughly Islamist state sponsoring al-Qaeda and other hard- core terrorist organizations.  This development, in turn, led to the separation of the Christian south from the Muslim north.  Now, both countries are paralyzed by even more severe political anarchy and economic bankruptcy.
