    BRADENTON, Fla., Aug. 24. 2014 -- President Barack Obama is under pressure from all sides to formulate a response to the advance of the Isamic State known as ISIS as it struggles to create the Fifth Caliphate this reporter warned us about in 2009 and which now threatens all of the Middle East in the name of Islam. The conundrum for Mr. Obama is that he doesn't want to send new combat troops to the Middle East, and the American public doesn't want him to, either; only a few GOP Neanderthals want our best and brightest young men and women back in harm's way.

    The words that reached out to me from the Inaugural Address of President Barack Obama were when he spoke of what Americans can achieve when "imagination is joined to common purpose, and necessity to courage." Imagination and courage are the most powerful qualities of the American character, because it is we as a people who have progressively imagined annd created this great nation, and we who have courageously defended and extended its ideals.

    Friday Aug 28 | Washington Examiner

    In recent weeks, several Republican presidential candidates have hinted at vague strategies for dealing with the threat posed by the Islamic State.

    Jun 4, 2015 | American Reporter

    Like it or not, if the United States persists in not putting ground troops into the fight against ISIS, we will eventually be stuck with either Iran or ISIS as a fixture of the future in the Middle East. The reason for this is a bit simplistic, perhaps, but nonetheless unavoidable: We will now - meaning under the circumstances that have recently developed, specifically the advances of ISIS - have to decide if what we want in the future is an Iraq run by Iran, as it has been in the past few years , or a Fifth Caliphate, probably headquartered in Damascus, that rules most of Syria and all of northern Iraq, including Baghdad.

    ANGEL FIRE, N.M., Jan. 31, 2011 -- Looting, civil unrest, and a perceived lack of direction of the "revolutionary" movement in Egypt seem to have forced America and others to rethink their relationship to President Hosni Mubarak, and revealed the sad truths of the "Gimmetocracy." I listened to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton make the rounds of talking head shows this Sunday morning, and actually heard the opposite of what seemed like President Obama's Friday night tacit endorsement of a peaceful overthrow of longtime ally Mubarak.
