Osama Bin Laden turned out in the end to be the Islamic perversion of the Wizard of Oz – a pathetic old man hiding behind a ‘curtain’ of deception – although the evil he perpetrated was no fantasy. Bin Laden was a larger than life hero to Islamists, whom he led and inspired with messages of hate against the infidel West to carry out the 9/11 attacks on the United States and countless other mass-casualty attacks killing innocent men, women and children in the name of Allah.
In a far-too-late attempt to shore up his conservative base ahead of the 2006 massacre, President Bush sent 6,000 National Guard troops to the Mexican border, but placed major limits on what they could do. Now, with the immigration debate hot again because of the Arizona bill, President Obama is making a similar move and [...]
Following the liberation of Baghdad, historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. wrote, “President George W. Bush has made a fatal change in the foreign policy of the United States.

President Obama hasn’t held a formal press conference in almost a year (274 days and counting) yet has golfed 32 times since he was elected—eight more times than [...]
A couple of weeks or so ago a Colorado mom who had converted to Islam, and suddenly vanished, re-surfaced inside an Irish jail. Jamie Paulin-Ramirez was arrested for conspiring with the now-famous Jihad Jane and friends to commit an act of terrorism – specifically the murder of Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, for publishing a caricature [...]
