THE OBAMIZATION OF EASTERN EUROPE?


Back in 2008, I had penned the rant that I reproduce below. But I was too modest in my scope then, restricting myself as I did to Eastern Europe. The world is getting obamized, as Victor Davis Hanson ably demonstrates … Continue reading

WE ARE ALL K. NOW!


I listen, with wry amusement and not a little incredulity, to the tortured verbal stratagems that Obama administration officials use to define or justify their positions. It strikes me that their perspective is that: They do not make mistakes. Even … Continue reading

CONCEPTUAL CONFUSION IN THE STATE DEPARTMENT


This falls under the rubric of “Extreme Obamite Cleverness” (EOC). For many years, Israel had a policy of demolishing the homes of individual Palestinians who had engaged in terrorist acts against Israel.  This policy was quite controversial, and about ten … Continue reading

EXTREME OBAMITE CLEVERNESS (EOC) – WE MUST LIE TO GET PAST CBO AND THE STUPID AMERICAN VOTER


Extraordinary, but not really surprising.  When the bill was finally announced in 2009, I read it from cover to cover, and found huge parts of it unitelligible. And now… Johnathan Gruber, an MIT professor of economics and one of the … Continue reading

TROUBLE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY


I keep thinking about Barack Obama’s dilemma represented by his “thumping,” his “mega-defeat.”  (That’s not me talking: those are the words of the veteran Democratic strategist James Carville, so don’t anyone go accusing me of racism, or something.)  What is … Continue reading

A Times of Israel headline screams: US Anger at Netanyahu Said “Red-hot’ as Ties Hit New Low. Not exactly accurate, is it?  It should say: “Obama Administration Anger at Netanyahu…..”  The US, that is, the American people, certainly are not … Continue reading

Here is a repost of something I had written up in November 2008, equally applicable today – if indeed not more, since now Obama has shown his true colors. ———————————————– Valerie Jarrett, the co-chair of Barack Obama’s Transition Team, told … Continue reading
