The interminably repeated left-wing lie that Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin are in cahoots has exploded. With Trump’s military attack on Assad and verbal attacks on Russia, that claim has been shown to be what those with a little common sense knew it to be: a baseless, wholly made-up conspiracy theory meant to explain an election loss with which Democrats still haven’t come to grips. In fact, President Trump has shown more backbone with Russia in his first 100 days in office than President Obama did in eight years.Read More
“The first impression of Asma al-Assad is movement–a determined swath cut through space with a flash of red soles. Dark-brown eyes, wavy chin-length brown hair, long neck, an energetic grace. No watch, no jewelry apart from Chanel agates around her neck, not even a wedding ring, but fingernails lacquered a dark blue-green. She’s breezy, conspiratorial, and fun. Her accent is English but not plummy. Despite what must be a killer IQ, she sometimes uses urban shorthand: “I was, like. . . .”Read More
You might wonder: have Syrian Christians experienced any persecution because of their faith? Yes, according to Pope Francis who calls it a genocide. Tens of thousands Christians have fled Aleppo after 1,000 of their community, including two Orthodox bishops, were abducted and murdered, to site but one example.
At one point, Christians represented ten percent of the population of Syria. So why has the U.S. only accepted 53 Syrian Christian refugees when at the same time we’ve accepted nearly 2000 Syrian Muslims?
Why the bias?Read More
As the Obama administration comes blessedly down to its last few weeks, I’d like to rerun this blogpost from September of 2013 when Obama’s indecision let Syria “cross the red line.”Read More
Liberal chic is built on fluff.
How you feel trumps how you act.
Style supersedes substance.
Thought conformity is valued more than intelligent thinking.
Four media outlets help mold modern liberalism: the Huffington Post; the New York Times; Newsweek Magazine; and Vogue Magazine.
Vogue, with its 11.7 million readers, looms particularly large since liberal chic is such a fashion statement. Vogue has lovingly advanced the status of Michelle Obama and Texas human abortion advocate, Wendy Davis on their pages. They championed another emerging icon two short years ago in a lavish spread, which, mysteriously, has been scrubbed from the internet …Read More
I remember it like it was yesterday. Earl Morrall handed the ball off to halfback, Tom Matte, at the Jet’s 41 yard line. Matte swept right. What happened next was a disaster…Read More
“So Obama is wrong for wanting to help stop the slaughter of women and children via chemical weapons while Bush got us in two wars on the possibility that Saddam may have chemical weapons. I fail to follow the logic you and many other bashers that seem to take such delight in name calling our commander in chief.
If you are like most of your fellow Obama haters, you were all for the war Bush pushed us into.”
This was the recent comment of a faithful, if contrarian, Quiner’s Diner reader. I thank him for sharing it …Read More
… After five years of this, the world caught on, and sees juvenile and narcissistic petulance in lieu of statesmanship—and unfortunately a sinister Putin takes great delight in reminding 7 billion people of this fact almost daily …Read More
What does it say about a guy who doesn’t have the guts to vote yes or no 129 times? That he is spineless; that he has no conviction; that he can’t be trusted; that staying out of the hot seat is his overriding goal in public life.
Would you follow a man like this into war?Read More
