The VA crisis is Obama's responsibility, even though Dick Cheney still believes Iraq was "the right thing" and even freeing a U.S. Marine from the Taliban is considered a "dangerous precedent." To further the notion that Oba ...

King Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands and Queen Maxima of The Netherlands at Four Freedoms Awards in Middelburg
Vice President Joe Biden, who in the past has stated that “jobs” is a three-letter word, “J-O-B-S,” and praised how President Franklin D. Roosevelt responded on television to the 1929 market crash (even though that happened before his term and television hadn’t been invented yet) now has authored another fairly extreme statement. Only this time the ripples could extend beyond the usual guffaws from those who know the career politician f ...

Russian President Vladimir Putin Visits Samara
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is on his way to Cairo, as of this writing, to attempt to negotiate yet another ceasefire. His journey is a thoughtless, and no doubt narcissistic, waste of U.S. diplomatic capital, since after two unilateral Israeli ceasefires that Hamas blithely ignored, it is clear that military pressure on Hamas, not diplomatic pressure on Israel, is the only way to stop the violence. ...
