(VIDEO) Cornyn: Department of Justice Prematurely Rules Out Appointing Special Prosecutor on Classified Leaks

Today, I questioned Deputy Attorney General James Cole on possible coordinated, politically motivated leaks of classified information by the Obama Administration. In response to my questions, and just hours after Republicans called for a Special Prosecutor, Deputy Attorney General Cole ruled it out.

Cole Acknowledges Leaking Classified Information is a Crime:   Read more »

Losing a War or Two

When History is finally written about the Obama Administration, it may record how a President managed to lose two wars after inheriting one winning war and a strategy to win the other. Obama has one accomplishment, killing Osama Bin Laden, but that will be forgotten as American soldiers pull out amidst two countries in crisis and sacrifices made wasted with inept diplomacy abroad and a failure of the Obama Administration to make a case for his foreign policy at home. Obama never spent any of his political capital to defend his Afghanistan policy, and the American people have now abandoned their own support for a war that even President has given up on.   Read more »

The Election Is About More Than Jobs

What if the Economy should improve between now and November?

All of the Republicans and Obama agree that jobs need to be created. They just differ on HOW to create the jobs—the private sector or the government.

If per chance the unemployment figures should dramatically decrease between now and November, where will that leave the Republicans if that is all they have talked about?   Read more »

Iran Increases Threat to USA - Is Obama Up for the Challenge?

Iran has stepped up its threats against the United States by issuing a "double" warning. According to the state-run Fars news agency, Atalooah Salehi said, "We usually don't repeat our warning, and we only warn once. We recommend and emphasize to the American carrier not to return to the Persian Gulf".   Read more »

Will Obama Lose Iraq?

Will Obama lose Iraq? This is not an insignificant question, since Obama inherited a winning situation in Iraq, but now he is in danger of making our sacrifice in Iraq meaningless. The goal of the incoming Administration should have been to establish a relation with the new government while allowing a drawdown of our troops, but Obama simply failed to look at the long term strategic thinking in recruiting Iraq in becoming part of a bulwark against a resurgent Iran.

Is America Headed For Perpetual War?

When will we end our policy of intervention in foreign affairs?

First we went into Afghanistan searching for the 911 perpetrator Osama Bin Laden. Even though we have never found Osama, for awhile the Taliban was subdued until we all of a sudden entered Iraq to depose Saddam Hussein, who allegedly had weapons of mass destruction. Even though no WMDs were found, we removed Saddam from power much to the delight of Iran. Now Iran is a threat with reports of nuclear weapon capabilities. Ten years of loss of American lives is enough for a people who do not understand liberty nor will be able to keep what democratic process has been achieved once we leave.

Now the Taliban insurgents are on the march again in Afghanistan with the help of the corrupt Karzai regime, and American lives are once again being lost there. Yet, American dollars are still supporting Karzai.

Here We Go Again—Becoming Entangled In Foreign Affairs!

Under Obama America is Moving More Rapidly Toward One-World Government

In this world, there is no end to civil strife, wars and tribal fighting . While sending mixed messages about why we injected ourselves into the Libyan conflict, it is obvious that getting rid of Gaddafi is the end plan. So, the United Nations was called upon to pass the resolution calling for a regime change in Libya. I wonder if the United Nations

The Reality Of The 'Religion Of Peace' - Col Allen West - Geert Wilders

Be alert, be on watch! Your enemy the devil roams around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Be firm in your faith and resist him, because you know that your fellow believers in the entire world are going through the same kind of sufferings. - 1 Peter 5:8-9

The reality of the Islamic religion is that it is infiltrating our schools, churches and communities. We must be ever vigilant as this ‘religion of peace’ silently slides into our way of life and like a cat
