ISIS formally Aligns with ‘Moderate’ Rebels against Assad in Damascus

ISIS formally Aligns with ‘Moderate’ Rebels against Assad in Damascus

It should be clear that ISIS is a greater threat to America than is Bashar al-Assad at the moment. Say what you will, Assad’s troops are not beheading Americans and putting it up on YouTube. As such, wouldn’t any ‘moderate’ rebels the likes of Senator John McCain are behind have the same priority list? Uh, no. The laundry list of examples that should more than prove the FSA and ISIS is really nothing more [...]

Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality

I know there is a lot going on in the world, but I want to spend today on the concept known as Net Neutrality. Before we begin, I have to remind you that I am a consultant to a 300-member Internet coalition known as Broadband for America. As I am paid by them to write about Internet-connected (is that a redundancy?) topics you need to filter this through that lens. Today is the final [...]

DHS: Barack Obama can not be legally employed in the U.S.

It’s September 11 again. As we remember those that perished at the hands of Islamic terrorist in 2001, as well as their families and loved ones, we must also remember those that died in Benghazi; again at the hands of Islamic terrorist. September 11th has truly become another day of “infamy” for Americans. I can’t help but wonder if that self-centered egomaniac we have as our President will think about anything other than himself [...]

ISIS Richer Than ‘Any Other Terrorist Group in History’

ISIS Richer Than ‘Any Other Terrorist Group in History’

The IS war chest is growing daily and they are rich. According to U.S. intelligence officials, their resources exceed that “of any other terrorist group in history.” Persian Gulf donors, many from Saudi Arabia, were the biggest funders of ISIS aka IS and ISIL in the past.

To PM Cameron: Stop the Hogwash! ISIS is Islamic

To PM Cameron: Stop the Hogwash! ISIS is Islamic

Acting out what the Quran commands, ISIS struck again this past Saturday, when a savage barbarian speaking with a clear British accent, smote 44-year-old British aid worker David Haines about the neck, and then beheaded him on video. This is the result of multiculturalism, which equates one’s native culture relative to any other – as matter of fact, it relegates the host country’s culture in subservience. As Fox News reported , one British citizen [...]

Want to Destroy ISIS? Congress Should Implement the Draft and Raise Taxes Immediately

Want to Destroy ISIS? Congress Should Implement the Draft and Raise Taxes Immediately

Since President Obama recently stated ISIS is a direct threat to national and global security, and since we have a military that is overburdened from two wars in the Middle East, one still ongoing in Afghanistan, the American people should make some sacrifices for the next war.
