Egypt Is Ahead of Us

Is our State Department paying attention? Egypt’s military-backed interim government declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization Wednesday, intensifying its campaign of arrests and prosecutions targeting its members and tightening the noose on the group’s network of charities and businesses. The unprecedented executive decision likely ends any chance of reconciliation between the government and the […]

Hillary Clinton: Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!

At last, the international criminal Hillary Clinton may be brought to justice! http://t.co/5Ri2R917Z0 @jnewby1956 — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) December 18, 2013 If you’re old enough to remember Watergate, you remember that line — “GUILTY! GUILTY! GUILTY!” — from the “Doonesbury” cartoon strip about the accusations against Nixon’s Attorney General John Mitchell. And considering that […]

America Loves You, Sama Elmasry!

Step aside, @AnnCoulter @SarahPalinUSA @michellemalkin — Sama Elmasry is our new darling! http://t.co/MMcKtAXgL9 — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) August 6, 2013 Finally an Egyptian belly-dancer tells the truth about Obama: Hey Obama, Hey Obama Hey Obama, support the terrorism Traitor like the Brotherhood members Obama say it’s a coup That’s not your business dirty man […]

New York Times Buries the Lead — Deliberately — on Egypt Story

Yesterday, the New York Times put a story on its Web site with the headline: “Christians Targeted for Retribution in Egypt.” Then, evidently, the editors took over and turned it into a story headlined: “Egypt Calls for New Look at Morsi Prison Escape in 2011.” As they say in the newsroom, they added a new […]

‘Arab Spring’ Sequel: ‘Arab Anarchy’

Here is the headline stack from the Drudge Report: BLOODBATH IN CAIRO; 51 DEAD… Massacre at Muslim Brotherhood sit-in… Sexual assaults rampant… **WARNING GRAPHIC** Gang throws rivals from top of building… Law requires Obama cut off Egyptian aid… Cairo seeks Gulf help as unrest continues… Gunmen attack Sinai checkpoints close to Israel border… Hundreds of […]

Is John Kerry’s Yacht Named ‘Failure’?

Things are going badly in Egypt, although it’s hard to say just how bad they’re going. The latest trouble sign: [The office of interim President Adly Mansour] said pro-reform leader Mohamed ElBaradei had been named as interim prime minister but later backtracked on the decision saying consultations were continuing. A politician close to ElBaradei said […]

‘Authentic Frontier Gibberish’

The best comedy ever made? That’s a tough call, but if it’s not Animal House, then surely it must be Mel Brooks’ Blazing Saddles — and not just because I first saw it as a 15-year-old with my dope buddies Mike and Dave after we’d toked up some fine Colombian gold bud. Even without the […]

Was the CIA Involved in Egypt’s Coup?

Anyone who knows the Central Intelligence Agency’s history in orchestrating the overthrow of governments must be wondering whether the agency played a role in the collapse of the Morsi regime. My hunch? Certainly they did, and we should be glad for it. Morsi’s government was a dangerous proto-fascist Islamic thugocracy. Think about this: President Obama, […]

Egyptians Say Good-Bye to ‘Arab Spring,’ Say Hello to New Military Dictatorship

It tells us a lot about the Obama administration’s foreign policy “success” that, after his encouragement of pro-democracy movements in the Arab world, the Egyptians actually rioted to demand that the military take over and relieve them of the “democratic” government they had elected. Ben Shapiro reports at Breitbart.com: On Wednesday, Gen. Abdel Fatah Said […]

Deadly Chaos in Egypt

How’s that “Arab Spring” working out for ya? Five people were killed and hundreds wounded in violent clashes between supporters and opponents of Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi that raged for several hours into early Thursday morning. Angry mobs battled each other with Molotov cocktails, rocks and sticks outside the presidential palace complex. Via Ed Morrissey […]

‘Democracy’ in Egypt

Headline from the New York Times: President Morsi in Egypt Seizes New Powers So, Obama supported the “democratic” uprising that toppled the U.S.-friendly dictator Mubarak and brought to power Morsi, who now assumes dictatorial powers, and we are led to ask, “What was the point of ‘Arab Spring,’ anyway?” If all that has been accomplished […]

‘THE MANTLE OF LEADERSHIP’ –
Text of Mitt Romney’s Speech at VMI

The text of the foreign policy speech Mitt Romney gave today at the Virginia Military Institute, as prepared for delivery: I particularly appreciate the introduction from my good friend and tireless campaign companion, Gov. Bob McDonnell. He is showing what conservative leadership can do to build a stronger economy. Thank you also Congressman Goodlatte for […]
