Bolton: the ‘Stache rocks CPAC

February 12, 2011

Foreign affairs and national security issues are my primary interest*, so I was glad to see they got some extended attention at this weekend’s Conservative Political Action Conference in DC, which has mostly (and understandably) focused on domestic policy issues. I was even happier that the speaker was John Bolton (and his mustache), who is not shy about insisting that the primary duty of the federal government in foreign affairs is to defend American interests, not to be a team player in the Club for Transnational Statists. He is a very, very sharp observer of foreign affairs and what they mean for the United States. Click on the image below to watch his speech, courtesy of The Right Scoop. At 25 minutes, it’s worth every second:

Let’s just say I’m in 99% agreement with The ‘Stache.

John Bolton is considering running for president in the next election, in order to make sure national security issues are brought before the public. To be honest, I don’t think he’ll get out of Iowa, but I do think he’d make a fine National Security Adviser for President Palin.

*Though I often get distracted. I really need to get back to covering them more.

That pesky debt ceiling

February 12, 2011

One of the big arguments coming up in Congress over the next few weeks is the question of raising the federal debt ceiling, the amount of money the United States can legally owe. And it’s not just an abstract question: failure to raise the limit could (maybe, possibly) lead to a default on our debt, with horrific consequences — were it to happen. But will it? Would it be so bad the ceiling were not raised? Is this another manufactured crisis meant to bull-rush us into a bad decision?

In this episode of PJTV’s Trifecta, Bill Whittle, Scott Ott, and Stephen Green chew over America’s debt problem and how best to deal with it:
