When you see the calamity coming …

… but you’re led by narcissistic cowards, what do you do? You find your Churchill or your Reagan. Fast.

At present, Obama’s still voting “present”

Barack Obama is the President of the future. He spends all of his time daydreaming about the glorious utopia to come, while the rest of us are stuck in the crap hole that he and his progressive friends have turned America into. Mark Steyn’s latest: No doubt living in Obama’s future will be peachy. But […]

Video: “Bow To Nobody”

This one will leave a mark. Donate to Special Operations for America to continue the fight.

Osama bin Laden: still dead

That doesn’t mean he can’t still be useful in an election, though. Nowadays, though, we have much better methods for extracting intel from uncooperative Islamists.

Operation Baghdad Pups needs $60k by June 1

Over in Iraq, U.S. troops’ pets need your help before time runs out! SPCA International’s (SPCAI) Operation Baghdad Pups Program needs to rescue 24 animals from war zones overseas by June 1st. Due to the extreme Middle Eastern heat, air travel becomes unsafe for animals and all airlines place an embargo on animal travel, which […]

Maybe we should apologize louder

Our Commander-in-Chief is oh so very sorry about those terrorist communication conduits korans being burned in Afghanistan. Yet still the murders and riots continue. It seems three-page letters aren’t enough. Why doesn’t our endless groveling work? Why doesn’t the Muslim Street™ accept our sincerity and our remorse and say “Fine, but please don’t make a […]

“Mission Accomplished!” Right, Mr. President?

Barack Obama ends the Iraq War

Today he made it official, cutting and running exactly as promised and predicted. No big deal. Carry on. What’s on TV tonight? Pass me my Bud Light, bro. — 10/22 Update: Smart power.

Another Stuxnet-like virus on the loose

Remember Stuxnet, the exotic and sophisticated computer virus apparently designed to ruin Iran’s secret nuclear fuel centrifuges? Looks like somebody borrowed some of the Stuxnet code, created a new superbug, and set it loose. The mysterious Stuxnet worm — perhaps the most powerful ever created — managed to infiltrate computer systems in Iran and do […]

Act of Valor trailer

I have two words to describe how this movie’s going to perform at the box office. Enormous. Hit.

Remembering Damian Meehan

As part of of The 2,996 Project, I’m remembering Damian Meehan, a Carr Futures employee (along with Jon Vandevander) who died in the North Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001. He was 32. The following biography was written by his family. Growing up in a large family in Manhattan’s Irish Inwood […]

Remembering Jon Vandevander

As part of of The 2,996 Project, I’m remembering Jon C. Vandevander of Ridgewood, NJ, who was 44 on September 11th, 2001. He was a Vice President at Carr Futures, and on that morning he was at work (along with Damian Meehan) on the 92nd floor of the North Tower at the World Trade Center. […]

Tea Party terrorists, illustrated

Do I understand you correctly, Mr. Vice President and assorted progressive hand-wringers?

“The Rock” in Afghanistan, 2009-10

Video from the 2nd Battalion (Airborne), 503rd Infantry Regiment — aka “The Rock” — during Operation Enduring Freedom X: Does anybody think these troops deserve to have their pensions gutted?

Muslims, terrorists, and terror sympathizers

To hear the politically correct Left tell it, there are no muslim terrorists, merely non-specific “extremists” who aren’t really muslims.

Video: Oslo meets the Religion of Peace

— July 23 Update: According to many news reports, the bomber/shooter is not a muslim. Accusations of “extreme right-wing Christian fundamentalism” abound. Color me skeptical. Extreme? Yup. Right-wing? Maybe, but we’ll see. Christian? No way. Anyone who behaves as this man did is not following the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. The killer may think […]

Is a ban on mosques in our future?

This post by DrewM over at Ace of Spades HQ has really stirred up a hornets’ nest in the comments. Drew slammed Herman Cain for a remark about banning mosques, and that kicked off the brawl. It makes me wonder what circumstances, if any, would convince a majority of Americans to support a ban on […]

SFC Leroy Petry receives Medal of Honor

Hooah, Leroy!

An “ancient” tribute to American troops

Ancient in Internet terms, that is. The original blog post was written in French, but the blog itself vanished years ago. A snapshot is still available quand vous parlez Francais, but the translated text will still move you if you don’t. Hooah.

Medal of Honor to be awarded to Army Ranger

Sergeant First Class Leroy Arthur Petry, U.S. Army, will receive the Medal of Honor early next month for heroism in Afghanistan in 2008. Hooah, Ranger Petry!
