Missing Islam

September 22, 2015 by


By Diana West ~ Four months ago, when “Iraq” first popped up as an presidential campaign prompt, I posted the following essay. Consider it an introduction, or re-introduction, to further commentary on last night’s debate. “Something Is Missing from the Iraq War Story, As Usual” The Iraq debate that has erupted three, seven, eight, twelve years […]

May 20, 2015 by


By Diana West ~ Earlier this month, Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement on the ‘Jade Helm 15′ exercises the federal government plans to stage in Texas and other states: Over the past few weeks, my office has been inundated with calls referring to the Jade Helm 15 military exercise scheduled to take place between […]

Islam, The West: Differences Growing Smaller Every Day

May 7, 2015 by


By Diana West ~ Following another recent jihadist effort (thankfully thwarted) to destroy a Christian church in France, the essayist Fjordman commented: “The differences between the Middle East and Europe are growing smaller every day.” Following another jihadist attack (thankfully, only jihadists were killed) on a Texas gathering of courageous artists and other defenders of […]

The Charlie Hebdo Massacre: “Enough Is Enough”

January 9, 2015 by


By Diana West ~ The Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, France is a milestone in the progress of Islamic blasphemy law in the Western world. Magazine editor Stephane “Charb” Charbonnier (pictured) was among the twelve innocents, ten journalists and two policemen, murdered today in the magazine offices by an Islamic military-style assault team. The assassins […]

Ferguson And The Big Lie

December 5, 2014 by


By Diana West ~ “Hands up, don’t shoot.” No doubt Stalin would approve. When Fox News’ Sean Hannity asked Thomas Sowell for his reaction to the mantra “Hands up, don’t shoot” now being repeated from the protest theater of the streets to the floor of the US Congress by members of the Black Caucus in order […]

Will Obama Order U.S. Military To Fight Ebola In Liberia Clinics?

October 21, 2014 by


By Diana West ~ Do you get the feeling the United States government is trying to get us all killed? OK, not all of us. Some of us. I almost don’t know how else to interpret the headlines, whether it’s the 167,000 convicted criminal aliens who, despite deportation orders, remain “currently at large,” or it’s […]

Will Congress Rein In This Imperial Presidency?

December 14, 2013 by


By Diana West ~ An extraordinary thing happened in Washington, D.C., this week. Appearing before a House Judiciary subcommittee, several constitutional scholars forthrightly and unmistakably outlined the leading danger to the survival of our constitutional republic: the usurpation of powers by President Barack Hussein Obama. This wasn’t just me, a non-lawyer, perplexed by how out-of-whack […]

Willful Blindness, Mortal Peril

August 11, 2013 by


By Frank Gaffney, Jr. ~ Diana West‘s splendid new book, “American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character,” is an expose of a practice that she persuasively argues has cost us dearly in the past and endangers our future. Former federal prosecutor-turned-pundit Andrew C. McCarthy calls it “willful blindness,” and we indulge in it […]

Why Won’t The Media Cover Huma Abedin’s Ties To Global Jihad Movement?

August 1, 2013 by


By Diana West ~ Nationalized health care was one of the first programs enacted by the Bolsheviks after they seized power in 1917. Nearly a century later, the U.S. enacted “Obamacare.” Who won the Cold War again? This is one of the questions I work over in my new book, “American Betrayal: The Secret Assault […]

No Constitution, No Borders, No USA

June 17, 2013 by


By Diana West ~ At what point does it become clear that we no longer inhabit America? When we “Press 2,” not “1,” for English? When a national Social Security Number syncs an electronic identity that the government hospital provided us at birth to track us till death? When borders are no more, but the […]

Why Does Obama Need 1.6 Billion Bullets?

March 22, 2013 by


By Diana West ~ Dear Mainstream Media, Back in 2008, candidate Barack Obama went off his teleprompter and added a couple of sentences to the text of a speech about expanding the Peace Corps and AmeriCorps. Over rolling applause, the soon-to-be president of the United States said: “We cannot continue to rely only on our […]

About Chuck Hagel And US Foreign Policy

February 7, 2013 by


By Diana West ~ About Chuck Hagel. Watching yesterday’s morning session of his Senate confirmation hearings on C-SPAN made me nothing if not uneasy. There are, I have to confess, aspects of Hagel’s foreign policy that intersect with my own beliefs: those that stem from his apparently sincere drive not to see US troops wasted […]

Obama’s Kids: Stooping To New Presidential Lows

January 24, 2013 by


By Diana West ~ Not one of the 23 executive orders that President Obama signed — flanked by schoolchildren whom none of us want to see murdered and before an audience that included relatives of murdered schoolchildren — would have prevented the massacre at Sandy Hook. Did the main idea of the sentence above come […]

The Most Admired Woman in the World

January 14, 2013 by


By Diana West ~ Americans, Gallup tells us, admire Hillary Clinton more than any other woman in the world – again. This latest accolade marks the 17th time Gallup has found Clinton to be the Most Admired Woman (MAW?) since she became first lady nearly 20 years ago. Only Eleanor Roosevelt (13 MAWs) comes close. […]

Will Benghazi Lies Determine Election? Not If MSM Have Their Way!

November 5, 2012 by


By Diana West ~ Washington, DC — Two weeks ago, I reported here that the Obama administration had dug itself into a minefield of lies about the Benghazi terrorist attack that the president would have to cross to get to Election Day. Whether he will do so unscathed remains unclear, but if Barack Obama is […]

Savage Is As Savage Does

October 4, 2012 by


By Diana West ~ If you do nothing else, please watch the video below…..TonyfromOz. “It’s going to spark controversy, obviously, when you deem one side savages and the other side civilized.” That’s what man-on-the-street Colby Richardson says in this news clip, knitting his brows earnestly in the direction of an advertisment (above) posted in the […]

Dying over the Truth: Murder Inside the Wire

August 31, 2012 by


By Diana West ~ This is a particularly current article to post today, as yesterday 5 Australian soldiers were killed in Afghanistan, the worst day in combat operations for Australian military forces since the Vietnam era. 3 of those soldiers were killed in a ‘Green on Blue’ attack when an Afghan soldier opened up on […]

Jerusalem to Be the Capital of … What?

June 15, 2012 by


By Diana West ~ If Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood candidate for president Mohammed Mursi (pictured at right) wins, Egypt’s capital moves from Cairo to Jerusalem. So stated a leading Islamic leader, Safwat Hagazy, during a recent campaign rally as Mursi and MB head honcho Mohammed Badei looked on. Outrageous? Fantastic? Not in Muslim world. As crack […]

Goodbye, 2011

January 2, 2012 by


By Diana West Taking stock at year’s end, I chose to throw a spotlight onto the “unsolved mystery of 2011” — what really happened in Smolensk, Russia in April 2010, when the sitting government of Poland and a central swath of its intelligentsia was lost in a stunning plane crash. The 2011 Russian crash investigation […]

The Truth about Libyan “Rebels”

August 29, 2011 by


By Diana West Here are three things Americans need to know about the Libyan “rebels” the U.S. government isn’t telling us. One: The inspiration of the Libyan war is as much anti-Western as it is anti-Gadhafi. The “Day of Rage” that kick-started the Libyan war on Feb. 17 marked the fifth anniversary of violent protests […]
