There is absolutely no way to determine how many lives his split decision action saved.

It’s time that those who deemed it appropriate to strip him of the Silver Star which was upgraded to the Distinguish Service Cross, spend a few months in an active theater of operation.


By Dan Lamothe / Washington Post


The secretary of the Army is defending his decision to strip awards for heroism from a former Green Beret officer, saying the soldier demonstrated a “lack of honorable conduct” after he earned the medals.

Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn received the Silver Star in 2011 for valor in Afghanistan on Feb. 20, 2010, and was later approved for an upgrade to the even more prestigious Distinguished Service Cross. That award is considered second only to the Medal of Honor in recognizing heroism in combat.

Golsteyn was later investigated for an undisclosed violation of the military’s rules of engagement in combat — a violation related to the killing of a known enemy bombmaker, according to officials familiar with the case. The investigation closed in 2014 without Golsteyn’s being charged with a crime, but Army Secretary John M. McHugh made the rare decision to strip him of both awards anyway.

The move has been scrutinized by the media and criticized by Rep. Duncan D. Hunter (R-Calif.), a Marine veteran who has advocated on Golsteyn’s behalf. But McHugh stood by his decision in a new letter to Hunter, saying that the senior officer who initially approved Golsteyn’s Silver Star, Gen. David M. Rodriguez, agreed with his decision.

“Every step in the process of investigating Major Golsteyn’s actions, and reviewing and subsequently revoking his valor awards has been thorough, objective and justified,” McHugh wrote in the Feb. 26 letter, obtained by The Washington Post. “The Army’s investigation demonstrated that Major Golsteyn’s service during or at the time of the distinguished act, achievement or meritorious service was not honorable, which led to the revocation of the Distinguished Service Cross.”

So, this hero is being stripped of his awards for killing an ENEMY BOMB MAKER? By killing this scumbag he saved countless lives! This is completely insane!

Mark Levin: It is true, Bachmann was told to apologize or she might lose her intelligence committee post

By Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot.

The solution for dealing with thugs and bullies is to call them out.  In this case let’s see if the gutless Obama has what it take to make it through one-third of a round at the Congressional Gym with an individual far more qualified to do his job.

You see, the federal government is all about creating more red tape and killing jobs from the left side of the aisle.

I’m not suggesting nor would it be conceivable that Congressman West would replace the “resident, no this would be a winner tells the loser in this case Obama once he regained consciousness that he will put a stop to these tactics or the next time he may not pull his punches.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Despite the NRO posting a story yesterday that denied Bachmann was threatened to apologize for her letters requesting a Muslim Brotherhood investigation or she might lose her position on the House Intelligence Committee.

Be sure to check this breaking story:

Breitbart: On July 27, seventeen leaders signed a letter expressing concern about criticism directed at Rep. Michelle Bachmann for requesting information from the Obama administration about possible links between the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, the U.S. intelligence community and the U.S. Departments of State and Justice. The seventeen signers of the letter are: David Barton, Founder […]

Mark Levin says that he knows for a fact it’s true and the NRO story is wrong. And Levin isn’t happy about it either.

Listen to Mark Levin here.

GOP Rep Allen West is Outraged By $70 Hummer … Fill-up


Wall Street Journal
There are a number of reasons to want Congressman Allen West to lead our country. Among the his is an intelligent man of principle and refuses to go for the well documented hoax of CO2 induced climate change.  As Newt has pointed out, when we get rid of this guy, we will have gasoline prices back to around $2.50 per gallon.
Gas prices are really high. Newt Gingrich, in fact, has turned his struggling campaign into a referendum on President Barack Obama’s inability to control soaring prices at the pump. But he’s not the only one who speciously believes the president single-handedly controls how much you pay for petrol.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Outspoken, oft-outraged congressman Allen West (R-FL) took to Facebook on Thursday to eviscerate the president over his most recent fill-up. You see, Rep. West paid $70 at the pump for gas, which is absolutely insane considering he drives such a fuel-efficient as a … wait, does that say Hummer H3?


West’s Hummer (via Broward Palm Beach New Times via BuzzFeed)

Uh huh. The Party of Personal Liberty and Freedom is unwavering in its belief that freedom and liberty shouldn’t come with consequences. You want to buy a vehicle that gets 15 miles per gallon to fill a 23-gallon tank? Great! But don’t come crying when it costs $70 to fill the tank, man. The equation is simple for guys like West: FREEDOM + CHOICE – CONSEQUENCES = OBAMA SUX.

DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz Fires Back Against RNC Ad, Priebus Comparing Obama to Capt. Schettino

Commentary by Jim Campbell

Perhaps DNC Chairman (yes I said man because she’s no lady), Debbie Wasserman Schultz should have concluded here interview shown below when she spoke of Congresswoman Giffords. 

Perhaps she might follow Giffords lead and resign her seat as on her best day she is nothing but a  tired, partisan, hack with the same old sound bites. “The Republican’s are going to take Social Security away, privatize Medicare benefits?   And you whine about an RNC add as being “unfair, there you go again with using that word, “unfair,” when you orchestrated this complete lie?

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared on Fox and Friends to tackle some attacks from the Right, including a new RNC ad that uses clips of her voicing support for Hillary Clinton back in 2008. The Florida congresswoman shot back by defending Barack Obama’s record during his presidency and reiterating her support for him.

When asked about comments made by RNC chairman Reince Priebus in which he compared President Obama to Captain Schettino, the captain of the wrecked Costa Concordia, she said, “The captain of the Costa Concordia has been charged with manslaughter, and for the RNC chairman to compare the President of the United States to someone who has been charged with manslaughter shows a dramatic level of insensitivity to the families of those victims. Unbelievable comparison.”  ( Not necessarily Deb the jury is still out on whether Obama will be in some way in violation of something far worse as in the death of

Stupid Voters

By Alan Caruba

Warning Signs
It’s a comment I hear all the time these days. “The voters are stupid.”

I am not sure that those saying it mean literally that the voters have a low level of intellect or academic achievement, but rather that they mean voters seem prone to making their choices based more on emotion than on a serious examination of the candidate’s qualifications and character.


The best example of this was the 2008 campaign in which a candidate was presented in much the same way companies seek to “brand” their product or service, repeating the same message (Obama’s was hope and change) until it becomes part of the consumers’ decision-making process. It’s why we buy a particular brand of cereal or car. We have come to associate values with it that go beyond the taste or the look.

Barack Obama had served barely two years in the U.S. Senate before he made an unprecedented leap from there to the White House. He was, for all intents and purposes, an unknown quantity with a legislative record—if anyone bothered to check—that was a straight Democratic Party line vote.

Obama and Boehner the war of words: A Democrat senate that won’t pass Obama Job’s Bill

Comment by Jim Campbell

When it comes to ideology the hard left represented by Obama and fiscal conservatives could not be further apart.  Obama follower, use race, class warfare, and even religion to cover for their lack of ideas.

Republicans are for getting people back to work, not raising taxes, cutting spending and encouraging business to prosper.  One must wonder if his own party is becoming tired of their own failed policies and are beginning to distance themselves.

WASHINGTON — The relationship between House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and President Barack Obama has been “frosty” over the past two weeks, the speaker said on Sunday, despite their past work together on decreasing the deficit.

“The president and I have a pretty good relationship,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.” “It’s been a little frosty over the last two weeks. But we’ve got a pretty good relationship. And I’ve told the president, and I’m the most straight-up transparent person in this town, that I would never mislead him, that my word is my bond.” “Doesn’t mean that we always agree,” he added.

America should listen to Paul Ryan

Human Events

Starr Parker

Comment by Jim Campbell

Starr Parker is an incredible woman. She is the founder and president of CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, a 501c3 think tank which explores and promotes market based public policy to fight poverty, as well as author of the newly revised Uncle Sam’s Plantation: How Big Government Enslaves America’s Poor and What We Can do About It.

Please listen to her and Paul Ryan, they both come from divergent roots but certainly know what ales America and have come up with serious propositions to turn our country in the right direction once again. 

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Last week, one of the Republican Party’s young stars, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc), spoke at the Heritage Foundation and gave forth his vision of America and what we need to do today to restore our vitality.


Listening to Ryan, I’m reminded of the late, great Congressman Jack Kemp, for whom he once worked. He talks about America as an “opportunity” society, driven by the ideals of individual freedom, limited government, traditional values, and free enterprise.

To sum up his working hypotheses: These are the values that made America great. Our economic machine is sputtering today as result of departure from these values. Today’s task is to restore them and get America growing again, which will benefit everyone.

President Obama, al-Qaida’s New Leader, and Their “Mutual Friend”

By Barry Rubin

Barry Rubin is director of the Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA) Center, editor of the Middle East Review of International Affairs (MERIA) Journal, and a featured columnist at PajamasMedia

Ayman al-Zawahiri, nephew of a Nazi collaborator and grandson of the man who helped produce the genocidal antisemitic doctrine in Islamism, now seems to be head of al-Qaida.

In what appears to be his inaugural speech as al-Qaida leader, al-Zawahiri thanked Ismail Haniya, leader of Hamas, for his praising Usama bin Ladin after his death.

Haniya is often described as a moderate in the Western media.

The group that Haniya heads benefited from:
