Obama Needs a Reality Check

Obama Needs a Reality Check

Mr. Obama must set aside ideology and confront reality. The fantasy world that he sees through the lens of his ideological vanity is going to result in more bloodshed, quite possibly here within our own borders. It’s time for the President to confront the world as it is, not as he wishes it to be. Radical Islam has declared war on the civilized world. Does the President have the chutzpah to wage war against radical Islam?

Obama Administration Enables ‘Boy Play’

We shouldn’t be surprised in the least that, since Obama repealed the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy a few years back, not only have we seen a massive spike in male-on-male homosexual assaults in the armed services, we now discover that this administration is looking the other way as similar homosexual assaults are being perpetrated against children.

An Immoral Quandary

There is a troubling and growing trend, whereby behavior otherwise condemned as uncivilized, backwards, cruel, and morally reprehensible is permitted in the name of “cultural sensitivity.” Apparently in Afghanistan, this means turning a blind eye to the desperate cries of children as they are abused and scarred for life at the hands of perverted men on a power trip.

Treasonous Obama is a Clear and Present Danger to America

Treasonous Obama is a Clear and Present Danger to America

How can anyone not see that Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is an enemy of the United States? Now, with this treasonous, illegal terrorist prisoner swap for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who appears to be a deserter, if not a traitor, it’s harder for Obama’s sycophants to defend his actions, yet they are still trying to do so.

Broken, Beat and Scarred

They are the freedom fighters, the oath keepers. They are not expendable, but are heroes nonetheless! They bleed red, white and blue. Fighting multiple wars, they have left family and friends behind. They sacrifice their lives while we, all too often, are merely killing time.

US Soldiers Now Forced to Fight Two-Front War in Afghanistan

US soldiers in Afghanistan are now forced to fight a two-fronted war. Before each deployment, these soldiers understand fully that day after day they will do battle against relentless terrorists with shifting loyalties and unspeakable hatred. But what none of them could have foreseen was the killing field that would open from their rear…the continental United States.

We Have ‘A Few Good Men’; We Need ‘Good Leaders’!

We are all familiar with the US Marine Corps slogan “Looking for a Few Good Men.” Truth is, America’s military has always had plenty of “good men.” What it seems to lack in spades is good leaders.

Lone Survivor: A Tale of Horror and Heroism

To the extent that art really does imitate life, every American owes it to themselves and to our troops to see the blockbuster film, Lone Survivor. Panned by some cynical elites as “shameless war-porn,” in reality this movie portrays the heroism and sacrifice of four members of Seal Team 10 during a mission gone bad in the mountains of Afghanistan in 2007.
