How many…

…senior Iranian military commanders has Trump had  knocked off  now?   I have lost count,  but I think it’s about half a dozen.   Small wonder Iran and Iraq are both screaming that we should not strike the militias,  one of which killed two U.S. and one British service members in a recent attack.   If you don’t wish to get blown to smithereens,  stop attacking us so we need not retaliate.

Shout “Allahu Akbar” in Venice and  get shot  per the Mayor’s orders.  It’s not politically correct,  but I applaud his bold efforts to take care of the citizens of this watery city and its many visitors.

Trump on killing terrorists…

leave a comment »

Oh,  how fine it is to have a president who understands that soldiers are meant to  kill bad guys and break things.   Who believes that field commanders should have the flexibility to fight effectively,  which requires rules of engagement that actually allow them to fire weapons without approval from the White House after going up a very long chain of command and being vetted and considered by a large number of people who have never dodged a bullet in their lives.

President Trump very smartly  used the  examples of unity and common purpose consistently displayed by our armed service members to encourage unity amongst the American people,  but don’t think for an instant that the Lefties in the media  —  but I repeat myself,  don’t I? —  will give the man much credit for it,  and they will forecast failure instantly.

I don’t find Sen. John McCain’s praise for the  speech helpful,  since he mischaracterized the malfeasance of the Obama Administration and to some extent his own previous criticisms of Trump,  but I grudgingly give him credit for the praise.  I was far  more interested in the view  of Rich Lowry and   that of  Quin Hillyer,  and Roger  Simon,  with the most interesting being from  the Conservative  Treehouse.

Very good news…

I’m always cheered by news of bad guys  blowing themselves  up while trying to produce an IED to blow up other people.   Even better,  they were using a mosque in southeastern Ghazni province in Afghanistan.

How can you…

…expect to defeat Islamic jihadists if you  arrest someone  for merely tweeting something about Muslims?   Apparently,  being guilty of  “stirring up hatred”  is far more serious in Britain than actually slaughtering infidels.   God help the land of some of my ancestors.

Bravo, Cruz and Sessions!

leave a comment »

Senators Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions have identified  113 radicalized terrorists now in the U.S.,  at least 14 of whom were admitted to the country as refugees.

They have been  requesting immigration  information on the terrorists and their families since August,  2015,  but Attorney General Loretta Lynch,   Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and Secretary of State John Kerry continue to stonewall,  despite follow-up by the senators.

The administration of His Oneness doesn’t want to release any information for the simple reason it will show how poorly the vetting process is performed,  how reluctant the administration is to go scoop up the bad guys we know about,  and how little it actually cares about the safety of American citizens.

This should make you care about immigration,  even if you’re oblivious to the damage it does to Americans,  especially the low-skilled and poorly educated.   This alone should prevent you from voting for Democrats,  who mainly want more immigrants to stick on the government teat  —  at your expense — who will vote Democratic out of gratitude for living better than they could in their own countries of origin without having to hit a lick at a snake.

Human Rights Watch is as sorry an organization as the United Nations.   Here is  one reason why.

Gitmo hunger strikers…

leave a comment »

Should we let those on a hunger strike at Gitmo die rather than force-feed them?  We are being pilloried for this painful treatment,  yet imagine the howls if we did allow them to starve themselves to death.   What the Left really wants is for the remaining detainees to be released,  just as Sen. Dianne Feinstein has suggested,  which history tells us means most of them will return to jihad against us.

Boston bombers identified…

leave a comment »

The FBI  released  these photos.   A victim of  the bombing  had come face-to-face with one of the bombers, had noticed him dropping a duffle bag just before the explosion,  and was able to describe him to the FBI.

Another civilian posted  sharper images  after friends looked at  his photos.   The two men have  been identified  as brothers from Chechnya,  who immigrated here over a decade ago.    The older brother has apparently  been shot and  killed in a confrontation with police,  and there is a manhunt on in Watertown, Mass., for the younger brother.

As near as I can tell,  if they hadn’t gone on a  crime spree  including robbing a  convenience store,  carjacking,  and killing a security officer at MIT,  both brothers would still be on the loose.   I predict that much will be made of the pair’s whiteness,  and since the older brother had become a permanent resident,  they will be classified as homegrown terrorists,  and MSM will avoid any mention of their religion.

UPDATE:  Yes, they are/were white, but not native-born  Americans,  a distinction which will be lost until the media portrays them as victims of years of violence.   Sen. Chuck Schumer is already mewling that no one should  make any connection  between the Boston bombing and immigration.   The trouble is,  the bombers were from Chechnya,  which  has featured  some of the most violent and gruesome deaths seen in recent memory.   And we let them into this country.   Mark Steyn agrees that any religious element  will be downplayed.

UPDATE:   Here’s a video of the  brothers’ uncle,  who has obviously managed to assimilate.   I especially liked the appellation he used  for his nephews.

UPDATE:   Apparently the younger brother is now cornered in a boat in a backyard in Watertown, and a standoff has ensued.

UPDATE:  FOX and NBC are reporting that the suspect has been taken into custody.

Moving Gitmo stateside…

leave a comment »

Sen. Dianne Feinstein is eager to help the legacy of His Oneness by advocating for  closing Gitmo.   My first suggestion is that the government build a special prison right next door to her home in California so that she may enjoy first-hand experience of some of the consequences.

Alternatively,  the new prison should be placed directly across from the White House, so reporters don’t have to go far for comments when the first school bus is taken over by jihadists  seeking to exchange them for their incarcerated brethren.   When the first dead child is displayed on national TV,  Mr. Obama should be live on camera along with Sen. Feinstein.
