Weak, Confused, Unable to Grasp

  He can't talk about a strategy in the Middle East because he doesn't have one. He thinks he doesn't need one because he's confident that ISIS, "the junior varsity," will implode. Hardly anyone agrees with him. Like Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders he cannot even bring himself to say the words "radical Islamic violence." If he cannot bring himself to say who the enemy is, and what that enemy is up to, he can hardly deal with that radical Islamic enemy. He says Islamic refugees are no more likely to be violent than Christian refugees. He insists that ISIS is just another manifestation of terrorism, not a caliphate that demands to be recognized as a state. "Nobody," he says, "is under illusions that [ISIS] can actually in a sustained way feed people or educate people or organize a society that would work." Maybe Mr. Obama doesn't know anyone who thinks that, but there are many well-informed people who do. The record is clear that ISIS can indeed operate as a state. It collects garbage and collects taxes — what else must a state do to demonstrate its effectiveness?

"Unable to grasp." That will be the epitaph for the Obama presidency

Why No Liberal Rage About New Orleans Shooting?

Here is something to know: the shooting took place between two rival groups and is believed to be gang-related. The police chief believes that it may have something to do with the heroin trade. That means it was a crime shooting, a shootout between criminals (and that witnesses, incidentally, appear afraid to talk to the police, though it is believed many in attendance know who the shooters were.)

As we see in Chicago pretty much every day, the white liberal thought leaders of the left aren’t interested in these kinds of shootings. The playground is in a black neighborhood. The shooters were in gangs. I ask you to ask yourself why there is not the usual overwhelming onslaught from liberal do-gooders that follows other mass shootings. Go ahead. Ask yourself.

Scandinavian hotel chain bans bacon and sausage. (Despite this, one must admire the owner because he  eliminated pay-per-view porn from all Nordic Choice hotels after citing its connection to child trafficking, replacing the channels with contemporary video art on demand in 2013)

However, I think he should keep the porn ban but reinstate bacon.

Trust in the Lord, Not Governments

  It's not really surprising that after seven years of an administration of serial liars, empty promises and failed plans, an overwhelming percentage of the public does not trust elected officials, their politics or the government they're supposed to be running.

What's really shocking is that 19% of Americans still do.
