“Rendition”, Fact or Fiction? Totalitarian Government is Here

I watched the movie “Rendition” a few nights ago and began thinking about the situation in our nation today.  The movie is about an Egyptian man who has lived in the United States for 20 years, moving here when he was 14. He is a college educated chemical engineer, married, with a young son and… Read More »

House GOP Doesn’t Listen Any Better than Walmart

Occasionally the wrong person takes a column to heart. Earlier this month I wrote that Walmart doesn’t help its PR efforts when the company acts in a manner that only serves to reinforce its reputation as the Simon Legree of retail. (Details here.) In this instance an Ohio store had a display in the employee… Read More »

Rebuttal of Andrew Erickson’s “let’s play solely on defense” proposals

AirSea Battle, the DOD’s battle concept for countering China’s rapid military rise and aggressive actions in East Asia, has been under fire from the opponents of a strong national defense and from China’s lackeys in the US since its inception. They claim, inter alia, that AirSea Battle, which postulates striking the Chinese mainland in the… Read More »

Rebuttal of William Hartung’s blatant lies about the threat environment

The leftist “BreakingDefense” website has recently (on Dec. 12th) published yet another utterly ridiculous leftist screed, this time by ignorant anti-defense hack William Hartung from the far-left “New America Foundation”, an organization that seeks to turn America into a socialist, militarily weak country. In that garbage screed, Hartung falsely claims that: 1) The world is much… Read More »

House GOP Has Nothing to Offer Conservatives

Here’s the situation: You’re in a high–stakes negotiation with an untrustworthy opponent. The opposition has violated every agreement the two of you have made in the past. Enforcement mechanisms are weak or non–existent. In other areas of mutual interest your opponent regularly violates the law and dares you to do something about the violation. Your… Read More »

Rebuttal of anti-nuke hacks’ lies about US nuclear weapons spending

The leftist “National Defense Magazine”, which has often published utterly false propaganda screeds on defense issues, has recently published yet another one of this kind: an article that falsely claims US nuclear weapons spending is poised to skyrocket and is exempt from sequester. Even worse, that garbage screed uncritically repeats the lies of several extremely… Read More »

Rebuttal of Democrats’ and other anti-defense types’ blatant lies on DOD budget

A new “supercommittee” of Republicans and Democrats met recently on Capitol Hill to discuss possible ways to solve the nation’s fiscal woes and, if possible, replace the sequester with other, more carefully designed, budget cuts. In the opening of that meeting, the Democrats, specifically Sens. Ron Wyden and Bernie Sanders, stated some very blatant lies… Read More »

Stupid Senators Suckered By Obama On Nuke Deterrence

  URGENT PLEA: A number of Senators have introduced amendments to the NDAA that would bar Obama from cutting the nuclear deterrent unilaterally, scrapping any ICBM squadrons, or honoring arms reduction agreements that no one abides by. Dear Readers, please call your Senators (and other states’ Senators) and tell them to vote for ALL of… Read More »

Rebuttal of Friedman’s and Preble’s blatant lies about US nuclear weapons

On November 14th, the NY Slimes newspaper published a litany of blatant lies about the US nuclear arsenal,written by Cato’s Benjamin Friedman and Christopher Preble, two anti-defense hacks employed by CATO. In it, Friedman and Preble falsely claim that: The US nuclear arsenal is “bloated” and amounts to overkill; Nuclear weapons and the nuclear triad… Read More »

Rebuttal of political admiral’s false claims about Chinese submarines

On Saturday, during the Reagan National Defense Forum at the Reagan Presidential Library, Admiral Jonathan Greenert, a political admiral whom President Obama appointed Chief of Naval Operations in 2011, dismissed China’s entire ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) fleet as not being credible. He furthermore said: “For a submarine-launched ballistic missile to be effective it has to… Read More »
