KING ABDULLAH’S BLOOD-STAINED LEGACY

While President Obama and other Washington heavies give posthumous praise to King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud for his “moderate” voice of the Middle East, I have a different set of memories… Under King Abdullah’s reign, unarmed protesters were shot to death. He beheaded people as if he was creating a national sport. Practicing spiritual […]

WHAT COULD BE OBAMA’S LEGACY

  President Obama’s visual legacy may have nothing to do with the slow economic recovery, health care reform, NSA follies, dog-hating fence jumpers or the fact that the President hasn’t jailed a single large banksta for the 2008 financial markets meltdown.

GLOBAL WAR ON TERROR, TAKE 2

We’re approaching another 9/11 anniversary, and while some of the victims’ names begin to literally fade away, I feel as if I’m living with a family member who is not only an arsonist hell-bent on setting the neighborhood ablaze — our house included — but who is also a fire truck salesman. Who could have guessed […]

OBAMA, THE MAN WITH NO (ISIL) PLAN

Mungu Wangu, President Obama! You have no plan?? The Islamic State – also known as ISIL – is rearranging the Middle East chessboard as we know it when these slick-dressed New Jack jihadis began macking parts of Iraq, carving out territory in Syria, announcing a conquest vision that includes parts of Europe, crucifying non-believers, pulling […]
