I’m a Rambling Man

Sun 09/14/2014


It’s been a hectic summer since I last wrote 2 articles about ISIS/L quickly moving into Iraq and the release of Bowe Bergdahl. I wrote those pieces during the first half of June. While the Bergdahl story has all but disappeared as we await the decision by military investigators on whether or not to court […]

The Rise and Fall of the Biden-Obama Policy on Iraq

Sat 06/14/2014


Within 96 hours the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sahel (ISIS) or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, depending on who you are talking to, went from being an active player in Syria and controlling Fallujah and Ramadi to taking over Mosul, Tikrit […]

PFC Bowe Bergdahl – AWOL or DESERTER

Sun 06/08/2014


I got a call on Friday from Dave Rutherford, who last year retired from hosting his own radio show in Canada. I was a regular guest speaking about various security incidents and issues around the world and always felt he was a stand-up guy for a journalist, which is not a profession I have a […]

MSM Gone Mad

Sat 06/11/2011


It would truly appear that the MSM has gone mad…during a time when the economic numbers from every possible angle continue to come in below expectation we have two stories dominating the news. First CNN’s Headline News spends all day covering the Casey Anthony murder trial while the rest of the MSM is dedicating more […]

Are We Really Willing to Wage War to Protect Civilians?

Sun 04/24/2011


Is the West truly ready to commit to fight wars on the premise of protecting human life? The UN office for the protection of civilians UNPC has reiterated that article 4 of the Geneva Convention was adopted in 1949 yet we have most often failed to live up to that article. Indeed after the numerous […]

When Presidents Get Idealistic in the Middle East

Sun 01/30/2011


George W. Bush’s speeches during his primary run and then as the nominee show us a man very focused on domestic issues. When it comes to foreign policy some of his initiatives were to be ending the idea of nation building and getting out of Bosnia and Kosovo…why because President Clinton had US forces there […]

Sarah and CNN

Mon 01/03/2011


So what’s up with the CNN political ticker headlines? At first I thought it must have just been me but after I really started paying attention I’d realised that over the past month Sarah Palin has been the headliner for all but about 4 days and every single one of the headlines on the main […]

New Climate Change Same as the Old Climate Change

Sat 12/25/2010


As the latest Global Warming conference in Cancun, Mexico has just wrapped up almost unnoticed by the main stream media it would appear the name change from Global Warming to Climate Change hasn’t helped, as much of Europe and the East Coast of North America have been continuously pummelled by snowstorms and cold weather while […]

A Classy Exit

Mon 11/29/2010


By T. Lee Humphrey Former President George W. Bush spent the last few weeks hitting the talk show circuit and giving interviews to all the major networks and cable stations promoting his book Executive Decisions. He’d given a few speeches since leaving office as well, including one in Calgary, Canada my hometown that I was […]

The Chinese Puppet Roars

Thu 11/25/2010


By T. Lee Humphrey At the end of Oct 2006 I published a piece on North Korea entitled “The North Korean Standoff” ( after they’d attempted to test a 3-stage rocket in July 2006 and failed and then attempted their first nuclear weapons test and again failed but signalled their move towards entering the nuclear […]

You Can Touch My Junk Part Two

Wed 11/24/2010


By T. Lee Humphrey In You Can Touch My Junk part one I talked about the realities of the fully body scanner and tried to lower the language temperature by explaining that the MSM and anti-scanner crowd term naked picture didn’t really apply but to no avail. The MSM and more shockingly the right-wing of […]

You Can Touch My Junk

Sun 11/21/2010


By T. Lee Humphrey I guess I’m not one to follow an ideology but I’m shocked with the reaction of my conservative friends to the new level of airport screening and the so-called outrages over the intrusiveness of the alternate to the new full body scanner commonly known as the enhanced pat down and the […]

President Obama a neo-Nixon

Mon 10/11/2010


By T. Lee Humphrey If you ask the average American who is old enough to remember President Nixon, what you best remember about him, most people won’t say, he ended the Vietnam war or he visited China or that he kept an enemies list, they’ll say Watergate…and won’t mean the break-in at the Watergate Hotel […]

To Teddy or Not To Teddy

Sun 10/10/2010


Have you ever been plodding along doing a task and found yourself day dreaming? I often do this to pass the time on long flights or drives through the desert or when my daughters talk about the Jonas Brothers. The other day a friend dropped me a note about the pending decertification of private security […]

Dear Jimmy….

Sun 10/10/2010


Dear Jimmy…I know it’s more common to say Dear John, but since it’s time for us (the American people) to end this relationship I thought I’d stick with your real name. Recently you reminded us that you believe you’re the greatest President in recent history while most of us believe the opposite. The next day […]

Private Security Companies, Good or Bad?

Sun 10/10/2010


Three years ago today; what became known locally as Baghdad’s Bloody Sunday occurred. This was the day when a Blackwater convoy opened fire at Nisour Square and 15 minutes later when the shooting stopped 17 Iraqis were dead and more than 20 were wounded. Blackwater’s official position was that the convoy had been fired on […]

Building and Burning

Fri 09/10/2010


Recently the US has faced two major stories related to Islam, first the story about the proposed Islamic cultural center which would include a mosque and then a story about a small non-denominational Christian church in Florida that decided to hold a “Burn a Qur’an Day” on September 11th, then canceled it and then said […]

Polls, Policies and Predictions

Wed 09/08/2010


Are you wondering why President Obama and the Democratic Party continue to slide in the polls? For the Liberal elites it’s the most frustrating question, for in their perspective he’s the most successful first term President in decades and the first term is only half over. They have an impressive laundry list of accomplishments they […]

Weak Presidents Equal Dead Americans

Mon 10/13/2008


When America elects weak or perceived to be weak presidents the results are either direct or indirect attacks on Americans, American interests overseas or attacks on the homeland and America is about to elect the least qualified President in modern times. The first major attack that changed the world came when Iranian fundamentalists realized that […]

What Politicians Won’t Say About The Mortgage Meltdown

Sat 10/04/2008


What the politicians won’t say to you about the mortgage meltdown is simply that it’s your fault. Plain and simple, it was your fault, but they can’t say it because you not only don’t want to hear the truth, you want to be appeased not to mention that whenever a politician (normally mistakenly) tells them […]

The New Cold War is Hot Again

Sun 09/28/2008


While we are all watching Islamic terrorists and state sponsored terrorists attempt to spread their hate in Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Britain, the United States of America, North Africa, Canada, and Spain the Russians were using their new found oil wealth to recover their pride and determination to be a world power once again. Almost […]

American Voters are Just Plain Stupid

Fri 09/26/2008


American voters are just plain stupid. But before you all get together and put out a hit on me let me confess that Canadian voters are just as stupid. In 1993 the Liberal Party of Canada released their party’s platform in a book that became known as the Red Book because of its fire engine […]

The Folly of Making Predictions in the Middle of a War

Tue 09/23/2008


I’ve written before about trying to properly analyze a war while in the middle of it which is what the MSM continually seems to demand under the guise of providing the public with accurate updates. Congress is no better as they make “fact finding” trips to the Green Zone, meet with staff briefing officers and […]

Not So Reliable Sources

Sun 09/21/2008


  The media as a whole has been transformed by cable TV. It began with CNN being very middle of the road but when it began there was no competitor to drive CNN in either direction. Today with Fox News on the right of CNN and MSNBC far to the left, CNN has attempted to […]
