At an invitation-only breakfast for establishment Republican types in Mount Pleasant, S.C. this week, Graham said that if America doesn’t take military action against the regime of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, Iran will acquire a nuclear weapon by the end of 2014.

“I believe that if we get Syria wrong, within six months – and you can quote me on this – there will be a war between Iran and Israel over their nuclear program,” Graham said, according to U.S. News and World Report.

American women have been cleared for combat, but the generals at the Pentagon only think they are the very model of the modern major general.


Women have been locked in combat since Adam and Eve were thrown out of the Garden of Eden. Men and women have been fighting the unending war between the sexes since, giving no quarter, but happily taking each other prisoner. It’s a war nobody can win, as Henry Kissinger observed, because there’s too much fraternizing with the enemy.

Why Sandy Has Meteorologists Scared in 4 Images


She’s huge. She’s strong and might get stronger. She’s strange. She’s directing the might of her storm surge right at New York City.

Hurricane Sandy has already caused her first damage in New York: the subway system will be shut as of 7pm tonight. Meteorologists are scared, so city planners are scared.

Change of Schedule Saved Mitt Romney From Being Near the World Trade Center on 9/11

-Shoestring 9/11 blog


[1] The final $12.7 million of federal money needed to cover security for the games had mistakenly been omitted from Congress’s budget, and although the Olympics organizers were “confident” the error could be corrected, Romney went to Washington to make sure the money didn’t “slip away,” according to the Deseret News. [2] As well as meeting with members of Congress on September 10, Romney also met with FBI Director Robert Mueller that day. [3]

Hurricane Sandy: Divine Wind for Obama… (“Enter Weather Modification Sandy’s timing has many people speculating that the storm’s path is an engineered event.”)

October 26, 2012 9 comments

Hurricane Sandy ripped through the Bahamas with 100-mph winds on Friday. It is now headed straight for the East Coast of the United States. The storm is dominating the news cycle and pushing election coverage to the sidelines as Romney takes a marginal lead, according to establishment polls.

“With President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney on center stage next week, the storm’s aftermath could affect voting logistics, travel, and even the volume of campaign TV advertising,” writes Scott Bombay for Constitution Daily.


It may also present itself as the October Surprise many have predicted for this year’s presidential election.


Obama needs a serious boost following his lackluster performance during the first presidential debate. Sandy may very well be his “divine wind,” or Kamikaze, the typhoons that saved Japan from two Mongol fleets under the command of Kublai Khan.

If Sandy strikes Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey, it will undoubtedly produce widespread chaos and present an ideal opportunity for Obama to come off as a strong and decisive leader marshaling FEMA and the federal government’s “emergency management” apparatus into action. Following the “perfect storm,” the establishment media will naturally provide all the propaganda Obama needs to sweep the election on Tuesday, November 6, a week after the hurricane is projected to hit.

Prison » Could ‘Frankenstorm’ Delay Presidential Election?

October 26, 2012 4 comments

The huge ‘Frankenstorm’ set to hit the northeast coast before Halloween threatens to cause widespread disruption – but could it serve to delay the election and stall Mitt Romney’s momentum going into the final days of the presidential campaign?

Hurricane Sandy was recently downgraded to a category one, however, as IB Times reports, “Computer models are predicting that Hurricane Sandy will meet up with another storm system, which could produce the grave “perfect storm” that could potentially devastate the North East Coast.”


Experts are predicting that the “Frankenstorm” could “become the worst to hit the U.S. Northeastin 100 years if current forecasts are correct.”

On the face of it, Hurricane Sandy is likely to be more of a concern amongst the Obama camp. For a start, if it does make landfall it’s almost guaranteed to hit areas on the coast where Obama is dominant.

Obama Recordings Reveal Dependency as Political Strategy

September 26, 2012 Leave a comment


I’m part of a just-posted online Debate Club sponsored by U.S. News & World Report which asks “Is the United States a Nation of ‘Makers and Takers?’”





My contribution to the discussion is basically a reworked version of what I wrote last week about Romney and the infamous 47 percent remark, so there’s no need to regurgitate those remarks. Suffice to say that I gave an answer of “No” because Americans don’t (yet!) share the Europeanbelief that it is government’s responsibility to provide the basics of life.

Feds bag idea of curbing target practice on public lands

The Obama administration on Wednesday backed off a draft policy to restrict target shooting on federal land near residential areas.

In a memo, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said he would direct his agency to “take no further action to develop or implement” the draft. U.S. News & World Report posted a copy of the memo on its website.

Michael Reagan calls brother an ‘embarrassment’ (Michael is right)
Politico ^ | January 15, 2011 | James Hohmann

Posted on Saturday, January 15, 2011 6:13:19 PM by jazusamo

Ronald Reagan’s conservative son called his liberal half-brother “an embarrassment” Saturday for speculating in a new memoir that their father suffered from Alzheimer’s disease while president.

“Ron, my brother was an embarrassment to his father when he was alive and today he became an embarrassment to his mother,” Michael Reagan posted on Twitter.

“My brother seems to want [to] sell out his father to sell books,” he added in another tweet.

The sibling tension bubbles over just three weeks before Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday, which will kick off a year of events to honor the 40th president.

In “My Father at 100,” Ron Reagan recalls early warning signs of his father losing his mental faculties. “The question,” he writes, “of whether my father suffered from the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s while in office more or less answers itself.”

Michael Reagan, adopted during President Reagan’s first marriage, comes out with his own book on Tuesday. It’s a polemic called “The New Reagan Revolution: How Ronald Reagan’s Principles Can Restore America’s Greatness.” Newt Gingrich, a likely 2012 Republican candidate for president, wrote the foreword.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, closely tied to former first lady Nancy Reagan, issued its own statement, more delicate but still forceful, pushing back on the claim that he suffered from Alzheimer’s while leading the free world.

“We believe Ron has written a wonderfully warm and engaging book about life with his father, Ronald Reagan,” the foundation said. “It offers a tribute that only a son could present. As for the topic of Alzheimer’s, this subject has been well documented over the years by both President Reagan’s personal physicians, physicians who treated him after the diagnosis, as well as those who worked closely with him daily. All are consistent in their view that signs of Alzheimer’s did not appear until well after President Reagan left the White House.”

Indeed, Reagan was not officially diagnosed with Alzheimer’s until 1994.

Ron Reagan recalled the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s during an interview that aired Friday night on ABC’s “20/20,” but he also argued that it should not undercut the legacy of his father’s presidency.

In the book, he guesses that his father probably would have resigned had he known he was ill. Excerpts from the book, which doesn’t come out until Tuesday, were first published on the U.S. News & World Report’s Washington Whispers blog.
