Is there any subject Linda Turley-Hansen is not upside-down on? She proves it once again with her most recent post about ex-President Reagan.
One of the three Republicans running for Secretary of State said Tuesday night he's not convinced that Arizona law should bar anonymous spending on political campaigns.
It can be useless to look back, except when it’s useful. Ten years ago this month, a loved former president signed off and out to return to his Maker. He was our commander-in-chief between 1981-1989.
“So Kim Kardashian was not nervous walking down the isle. She has lots of practice. This is her third trip. I’ll bet she won’t be nervous on trips four, five, six and seven.”
NEW YORK — The price of gasoline looks familiar this Memorial Day. For the third year in a row, the national average will be within a penny or two of $3.64 per gallon.
Once again, we see America supporting the “dirty end” of the political stick. We are (or soon will be) supplying money and weapons to the “al-Queda” Islamists in Syria (the Islamic state of Iraq, the Levant, Ahrar al-Sham to name a few of these crazies who practice cannibalism, beheadings and the like). Now we are to climb in bed with Neo-Nazi’s in Ukraine (Svoboda, Patriots of Ukraine, Spilna Sprava, Afgantsy and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army to name just a few).
What’s with all the political posturing and saber-rattling by our “desk jockey admirals and generals” in the House and Senate? We see them rabidly calling for everything short of “carpet bombing” Tehran and turning it into another Dresden. Of course, none (or almost none) of the military-aged sons (or daughters for that matter) of these politicians have ever been in or ever will be in the U.S. military and have to fight in the wars that their mommies and daddies vote for.
“Biden, Kerry and Obama had it right in 2006. It would be foolish to invoke the nuclear option in the Senate. I guess Obama’s greed for power has overtaken his intelligence. That’s okay, everyone now should know his true goal is to be king, not president. History will remove the upper case and remember him as ‘president.’”
Being critical of President Obama’s push for a peaceful end to Iran’s Nuclear ambitions is plain ignorant. Our President does not want war. He is giving peace a chance rather than military strikes and another war. If it does not work and Iran fails to abide by the peaceful treaty, we can then act. I do think, however, if Israel feels any type of threat from Iran, they will act anyway and we may not have any say in the conflict.
“Reid and Obama just guaranteed another shut down by invoking the nuclear option. Only this one may be longer and nastier than any in history. Hold on to your hats, the man that claimed he would unite America has driven a stake in any hope of that goal.”
The nuclear deal brokered by the United States and Iran in Geneva is historic. Just as the agreement to peacefully disarm Syria of its chemical weapons demonstrated, diplomacy makes the world a safer place.
Is it possible that Kerry and Obama are so naïve about negotiating with Iran that they really think that they have pulled off something wonderful with the Islamics? Have neither of them heard about tawriya, an Islamic doctrine that allows lying in virtually all circumstances where the Islamic wishes to keep their true intentions secret from Infidels (nonbelievers)?
Arizona Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain fielded questions and comments — both positive and negative in nature — about the Affordable Care Act and addressed other issues at a town hall event in Mesa on Nov. 25.
“Weather experts say that Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the Philippines on Friday and is expected to hit the Southeast Asian mainland, may turn out to be the most powerful such storm since modern record-keeping began. But don’t worry. Global warming is just a hoax.”
If you’re like me, you have some real doubts about increasing our involvement in Syria by responding to that country’s use of deadly gas attacks.
I’ve been thinking about the sorry state of American culture, and that made me reminisce about the Cold War.
Early in President’s Obama’s presidency some critiques of the president were claiming he was traveling around the world on what they called an “apology tour,” but nothing can be farther from the truth. Looking back, yes, President Obama seemed to be uneasy when meeting some world leaders, but no one can deny the fact that his presidency has taken on our foes with a precise and deadly intensity.
“House Republicans have had their ninth hearing on the supposed cover up of the Benghazi attack which resulted in no new information. The only cover up I can see is the fact that the GOP voted last year to cut U.S. Embassy security funding by $300 million dollars but refuse to take personal responsibility for their actions.”
It ended soon after it began, this revolution. Not with a bang, or even a whimper. The soldiers, unsure of their cause, simply left the battlefield. As the sun set on the retreating army, the sun also set on the vision of a shining city on a hill, which remains darkened to this day.
The gentleman produced a well-written, cogent commentary (“Can anyone seriously argue that the Iraq War was truly justified?” AFN, March 27) on the wisdom of the Iraq War. However, isn’t the Iraq War old news? Unless, perhaps, one wants to review the Iraqi constitution, which is a perfect example of a theocratic state. That constitution specifically says Islam is the national religion. Somewhat contrary to our Constitution, which supports religious freedom. How is it possible to have a free democracy when the government tells you who to worship as your spiritual savior?
No public figure has clearly articulated the true lesson from the 10th anniversary of the disastrous Iraq War. That lesson is a matter of logic. In weighing the war’s costs and benefits, we reversed the burden of proof. The war’s proponents should have been presumed guilty until proven innocent. Instead, the Bush Administration reversed that proper criterion, generally supported by the national press in placing the burden on skeptics.
“The ‘bathroom bill’ is without doubt the most hateful measure the Legislature has ever come up with. It’s also indicative of a complete lack of understanding of transgender people and the LGBT community in general. To remedy this, I suggest viewing a program called “In the Life” on YouTube. Oh, wait, some people don’t want to understand; they just want to hate.”
