US: Terrorists in their own words – by J.D. Gordon

While anti-U.S. riots swept through more than 20 countries in the Muslim world and beyond, the Obama administration appeared to struggle with a coherent response. President Obama noted that there was “no excuse” for the violence that claimed the lives of four Americans. Yet the Obama administration directed most of the blame for this chaos at “Innocence of Muslims,” an amateur film that insulted Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. Calling the film “reprehensible and disgusting” — far stronger terms than those used to describe the killing of Americans in Libya.

US: No Justification for the Murder of U.S. Diplomats, We Have Nothing to Apologize For, Ros-Lehtinen Says – House.gov

No Justification for the Murder of U.S. Diplomats, We Have Nothing to Apologize For, Ros-Lehtinen Says.

US: Libya commemorates 9/11 – by Ann Coulter

The Charleston (W.Va.) Gazette editorialized: “Most of the world is rejoicing because of the historic success in Libya. We’re glad it was accomplished by Libya’s people, not by a U.S. invasion ordered by right-wing American politicians.” I note that the American ambassador in Iraq has not been murdered and his corpse dragged through the streets. I also recall that, a few years ago, when Muslims around the globe erupted in rioting over some Dutch cartoons, one Muslim country remained utterly pacific: George W. Bush’s Iraq.

US: The empty chair syndrome – by Ron Jager

This past week will be remembered as the turning point in which Obama’s re-election possibilities took a severe beating and can possibly signal the beginning of the end of the Obama Presidency. All it took was for Clint Eastwood, the 82 year old actor and director to speak at the Republican National Convention to an empty chair. By addressing an “invisible” President Obama, Eastwood laid out what he sees as the good, the bad, and the ugly state of the man who occupies that empty chair in the White House.

US: Ros-Lehtinen Says Proposed Cuts Would Weaken Our Armed Forces & Cost Florida Thousands Of Jobs

Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) voted today to require the Administration to detail the specific cuts it would make to the Defense Department and discretionary spending to fulfill the terms of the sequester. The Sequestration Transparency Act, H.R. 5872, was approved by an overwhelming bipartisan majority of 414 to 2. Ros-Lehtinen said “These cuts will cost our state of Florida nearly 80,000 jobs, most of which are private sector jobs, and cost us billions of dollars in lost revenue.”

US: Top 5 changes at the Pentagon under Obama – by J. D. Gordon

Over the past couple weeks some of President Obama’s most fervent fans have openly deserted him – expressing a commonly heard frustration from his liberal base that his popular 2008 campaign slogan “hope and change” hasn’t amounted to much. Even the “Obama Girl” who gained notoriety through her racy YouTube video revealing her crush for Obama — now won’t even say whom she’s voting for. While it’s true that he hasn’t come close to achieving his top priority of closing Guantanamo, in all fairness, he has ushered in a new era at the Pentagon.

US: Obama Whispers Away America’s Security – The Foundry

It is hard to overstate the dangerous implications of what happened this week when President Obama was caught by an open mic sending a message to Russia’s dictator-in-waiting to wait quietly till after the November elections, after which Mr. Obama could make concessions on America’s national defense. The White House is trying to explain this incident away as par for the course in an electoral year. It is not.

US: Iran and Obama – by Thomas Sowell

What are we to make of President Barack Obama’s latest pronouncements about Iran’s movement toward nuclear bombs? His tough talk might have had some influence on Iran a couple of years ago, when he was instead being kinder and gentler with the world’s leading terrorist-sponsoring nation. Now his tough talk may only influence this year’s election — which may be enough for Obama.

US: Where are we, ten years after 9/11? – by Frank Gaffney, Jr.

So, where are we ten years after 9/11? It is comforting that we have been blessed with a near-unbroken decade without further mass-casualty attacks since those that killed nearly 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001. Unfortunately, our government is pursuing policies that can only encourage those who aspire to do us harm to redouble their efforts.

US: Mila Kunis Proves There’s Still Hope for Hollywood – by J. D. Gordon

The news that rising star Mila Kunis will make a Marine’s dream come true by accompanying him to the Marine Corps Ball on November 18th in Greenville, North Carolina when he gets back from Afghanistan is one of the coolest things I’ve heard in awhile. And it’s a welcome reminder that there’s still hope for Hollywood.
