    Obama allies back pro-Sharia populist in Nigeria

    In the dangerous last two years of Obama's presidency, things could go from bad to worse. His allies are now backing a pro-Sharia populist in Nigeria's presidential election, with potentially disastrous results

    Netanyahu's victory and Obama's shameful response

    Barack Obama lecturing Israel on democratic values takes the proverbial biscuit. Arab Israelis are better integrated in the democratic system than African Americans. That's worth pondering

    Barack Obama is shallow and frequently confused

    Obama is frequently out of his depth. He is confused and is best advised to not address matters theological. Indeed, he is equally well advised to not address anything that is the least bit complicated. His efforts to save Islam by slamming Christianity show this for all to see. At least change is on its way

    The true history of Europe and Islam

    Our political leaders, our mainstream academics, and media keep lying to us about the history of Islamic imperialism. The crusades were a minor distraction, and merely a response, to Islam's ongoing war against Western civilisation

    The state of the Union is not strong

    Economic growth has been anemic. Household income is down. Labour force participation is the lowest in decades. Barack Obama's legacy is dismal, and the state of the Union is not at all strong

    Bro Summit? There wouldn't be one for Ed Milband

    If Labour win the election, the world’s media will be itching to snap a bacon sandwich moment of Ed Miliband next to the President of the United States, doing considerable damage to our reputation. Ed just isn't prime ministerial material, and we all know it

    John Kerry's blundering "diplomacy"

    The Obama administration showed its true colours in forgetting to turn up for the mass demonstration in Paris. And then they sent John Kerry to kiss and make up. In fact, Kerry was long on the kissing and then fluffed the making up. Marvellous

    Why 2015 should be a great year for enemies of the West

    The essence of Barack Obama's weakness is that he does not have the mental capacity to deal with the world's complexities. The West's opponents know this and are likely to strike out further before he leaves office and is replaced by someone more competent

    Why Obama’s foreign policy is dangerous

    From Iran to Syria to Ukraine and beyond, Obama’s minimalist foreign policy has done great harm to America and the world. The Obama doctrine is what Bret Stephens calls The Retreat Doctrine, and the West's enemies love it

    The democratic world has moved beyond Obama

    The general feeling at major international conferences these days is that Obama had his shot, messed it up, and will be lucky to get out of office without a major catastrophe occurring. What a legacy

    Islamist plans right on track, and the West is helping

    If any eyes were opened after the 9/11 attacks, they weren’t Western eyes -- certainly not the eyes of Western leadership, mainstream media, and academia. Islamists believe they're right on track. They could be right

    Tragedy and farce in the White House

    Groucho Marx, Karl Marx, Gladstone, Disraeli, and even Duke Ellington can tell you something about Barack Obama. But at the end of the day, his international leadership is just a farce

    Why Obama must save Kobani

    Instead of preemptively stopping ISIS from spreading into Iraq, Obama effectively waited until some high-profile beheadings forced him to focus on the danger. Kobani is now key. But is Obama up to the task?

    What Finland knows that EU, US don't about economics

    Keynsian economics is a failed relic of the Leftist past. Barack Obama, the EU (and most of its member states) don't get that. So hats off to Finland for pointing out the emperor has no clothes

    Western survival requires the end of Islamist jihadism

    The world is now full of jihadist groups, whether al-Qaeda, the Nusra Front, or the Islamic State, some of whose supporters are trained to carry out terrorist attacks in their Western countries of origin. Yet, our leaders fiddle while the West burns
