What will be the next ISIS?

Since it’s approaching 20 years since the 911 tragedy, I got to wondering what will be the next ISIS or Al-Kaida type threat. To answer this question, I considered the level of hate and frustration that built up in the mid-east (and beyond) against America.

Looking Back…Looking Forward

One of my best friend’s recently passed away. She was my wife’s best friend going back to her high school days. Wonderful person who will be sorely missed.

Why Was Obama So Bad?

Some reasons why I liked him: He ordered the killing of some really bad guys…..namely Bin Laden and other terrorists via drone attacks and special forces intervention. Strategic approach to national security without long-term foreign engagement. He made the best of circumstances having inheriting an unjust war that was started by George W. Bush andContinue reading “Why Was Obama So Bad?”
