The Vacant Presidency

United States of America is hopelessly led by an unfit and improvised charlatan, whose South Side of Chicago spin-politics style have all but propelled this nation to unparalleled disarray and turmoil. If you are, like me, in any way addicted to headline news, there is no way in the world you could have missed the highly redundant headline banners featuring Barack Obama’s golf outing charades of the last few weeks.  Topping the story’s serial coverage, however, was Obama giving a speech regarding the beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIS on August 20th, while just minutes after the speech, … Continue reading The Vacant Presidency

ISIS versus President Obama

As news unfolded about the beheading of journalist Jim Foley by the ISIS (or ISIL or IS) Islamists, it first appeared that it would once again be an Internet only story that wouldn’t get wide coverage.  But thankfully it did, and so much so that President Obama even took to the airwaves to condemn the actions of ISIS. Yet once again the President and others on the left insist that what ISIS is doing — torturing and killing innocent men, women and children, raping some and selling some into slavery — is not in harmony with the sacred texts or … Continue reading ISIS versus President Obama
