Yesterday, ISIS released a video showing them cutting journalist James Foley’s head off. I have not watched the video nor do I intend to. It is not surprising coming from the barbarians that are slaughtering men, women and children by the tens of thousands in the pursuit of … something vaguely Islamic. They also claim to have Steven Sotloff prisoner and are threatening to execute him if the US does not abandon airstrikes against … Read more

A grand jury indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Friday on two felony counts: abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public official.

That has now escalated to bombing of ISIS artillery. Right now, Obama is promising the engagement will be “limited”. We will see.… Read more
