Putin's Power Play
During a press conference last week, President Obama said that Russia's Vladimir Putin was acting in Syria "not of strength, but out of weakness." If Mr. Putin gets any weaker, he may end up controlling the entire Middle East!
Multiple reports today indicate that Putin has deployed shock troops known as the Spetsnaz into Syria. These troops are "extremely aggressive and highly trained."

Obama/Putin: No Contest!
The buzz around Washington, D.C., is that we are entering a new cold war with Russia. My response: Don't worry! Be Happy! There is no new cold war. To have a cold war, two sides must realize they have conflicting interests and each must want their interests to prevail and be willing to compete.

Another Radical Left Hate Crime?
Yesterday, 26 year-old Chris Harper Mercer, walked onto the campus of Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, and murdered nine people. Seven more individuals were injured during his shooting rampage. Our prayers go out to the victims and their families.

A few months ago, a Republican operative made an observation that caused something of a political flap when he said, "Every day Donald Trump is emasculating Jeb Bush." I recalled that observation this morning as I watched the latest filleting of Barack Obama, and by extension, America, by Vladimir Putin.
During his presidency, Obama has regularly said to various segments of the U.S. electorate, "I have your back." If only we were led by a president who had the entire nation's back.

The decline of America's influence under Obama is accelerating. Fox News reports that "Russian diplomats sent an official demarche [a diplomatic demand] ordering U.S. planes out of Syria."
That demand was issued as Russia launched its first airstrikes in Syria following a unanimous vote by Russian lawmakers to approve President Vladimir Putin's request for the use of force.
Putin is going to war, and he's telling America to get out of his way. How flexible will Obama be this time?

Putin Takes The Lead
A number of world leaders addressed the United Nation's General Assembly yesterday. But one man stole the show and made it clear that he was willing to fill the vacuum left by America's retreat under Obama -- Russian President Vladimir Putin.
As one New York Post columnist put it: "Obama has turned Putin into the world's most powerful leader." Even the usually sympathetic left-wing media could see it too, evidenced by this headline, "Putin Steals Obama's Thunder On the World Stage." Consider these excerpts:

President Of Hypocrisy?
I couldn't help but notice President Obama's remarks yesterday at the White House. With Pope Francis seated just a few feet behind him, Obama had the audacity to claim, "You remind us that people are only truly free when they can practice their faith freely. Here in the United States, we cherish religious liberty."

Shout Your Abortion?
Pope Francis is in Washington, D.C., today. He has made headlines recently for encouraging people to have mercy toward those who have committed what the church teaches is a sin -- abortion. I have visited many crisis pregnancy centers, and often it is women who have had abortions who are the most articulate and passionate defenders of life.
