Barack Obama's Wars
President Obama Makes War on American Intelligence Professionals
Holder's politically-motivated "investigation" has now been going on for over two years. The CIA employees who tried to defend their country, strictly following the advice they were given by Holder's own Department of Justice, are left wondering whether they will face criminal prosecution. This is an absolute outrage, and it is Barack Obama's fault. If he doesn't think that federal employees should go to jail for defending this country to the best of their abilities, consistent with the legal advice they were given by the Department of Justice, he should get a new Attorney General. Since he hasn't done so, we can only conclude that Obama is deliberately making war on America's intelligence community.President Obama "Declares War on American Energy Workers"
All presidents deal with tough circumstances; it is the nature of the job. But we expect them to try, at least, to make things better for the United States and its citizens. When a president favors Brazilian workers over American workers, and puts American taxpayers' dollars behind that preference, what are we to conclude?Via National Review Online:
President Obama's Stealth War On Israel
The continuing influence of Obama’s pro-Palestinian sentiments is the best way to make sense of the president’s recent tilt away from Israel. This is why supporters of Israel should fear Obama’s reelection. In 2013, with his political vulnerability a thing of the past, Obama’s pro-Palestinian sympathies would be released from hibernation, leaving Israel without support from its indispensable American defender.President Obama's War On The Rule Of Law
Punishing enemies and rewarding friends — politics Chicago style — seems to be the unifying principle that helps explain the Obamacare waivers, the NLRB action against Boeing, and the IRS’s gift-tax assault on 501(c)(4) donors.Via The Greely Gazette:
They look like examples of crony capitalism, bailout favoritism, and gangster government.
And they don’t look like the rule of law.
President Obama's Stealth War On The Second Amendment
On March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, Jim Brady, who sustained a debilitating head wound in the attack, and his wife, Sarah, came to Capitol Hill to push for a ban on the controversial “large magazines.” Brady, for whom the law requiring background checks on handgun purchasers is named, then met with White House press secretary Jay Carney. During the meeting, President Obama dropped in and, according to Sarah Brady, brought up the issue of gun control, “to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda,” she said.
“I just want you to know that we are working on it,” Brady recalled the president telling them. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu electrified Congress with this eloquent speech in which he makes the overwhelming case for Israel against the savages surrounding it. A crucial point:
"Of the 300 million Arabs in the Middle East and North Africa, only Israel's Arab citizens enjoy real democratic rights. Now, I want you to stop for a second and think about that. Of those 300 million Arabs, less than one-half of 1 percent are truly free and they're all citizens of Israel. This startling fact reveals a basic truth: Israel is not what is wrong with about the Middle East; Israel is what is right about the Middle East."Having watched it live on Fox, I agree with Scott Johnson's evaluation; this was a great, Churchillian speech. Rush liked it too:
Context: Obama Lied, AIPAC Died
Throughout this speech I kept shouting at the TV, "Run, Bibi, run!" He-he-he. We can find a birth certificate for you somewhere, Philadelphia, Hawaii, or what have you. He spoke without a prompter. He's got some notes. He leans on the podium. What we're hearing, what you see, here is somebody who's very at home behind the microphone. He's entirely comfortable. It's easy when you actually believe what you are saying. ...
There are a lot of things in this speech. It went on for about 45 minutes, and I really do not want to try to paraphrase or repeat it. You really have to hear this speech as given.
It's a lesson in commitment. It is a lesson in confidence. It is a lesson in statecraft and leadership. This was an epic, epic speech. It was a lesson for Republicans in dealing with President Obama, even though all Netanyahu did was praise President Obama today. That's all he did. There was nothing partisan in the speech whatsoever other than his obvious love and support for his nation of Israel. But it was filled with humor, it was filled with goose bump seriousness. It ran the emotional gamut, it ran the intellectual gamut. The timing was flawless. Just a fabulous speech. The lesson that is there for people is to say what you mean, to say it confidently, to be fearless, and don't feel the need to excuse what you think or make excuses for how you feel.

Queen Elizabeth Schools Obama
First Netanyahu puts President Obama a series of primers, including that face to face history lesson on live TV around the world; then Obama embarrasses himself twice on the same day at Buckingham Palace, the second of which plays out here:

Dubya's Promise Kept: U.S. Forces Put A Bullet In Osama's Brain
Thank you President Bush.
Ace has a great point:
So, the Guantanamo suspects that some people wanted to release and some people didn't want to interrogate harshly actually gave up [bin Laden's] courier. Four years ago. Ahem.
