Better late than never

It appears the Obama administration may finally be opening its eyes to the reality of their man in Honduras. The United States blasted ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya for his "irresponsible and foolish" return from exile before a settlement was reached in the Central American country’s political crisis. At an emergency meeting of the Organization […]

Obama and Honduras

Posted · Add Comment

There was one issue that the fawning mainstream media didn’t bring up over the weekend as President Obama did the rounds of all the Sunday talk shows – except for “Fox News Sunday” – and that was the Obama administration’s outrageous behavior toward the democratic government of Honduras. The Obama administration has repeatedly demanded the […]

A letter to the president

Posted · Add Comment

The Colbath’s are missionaries living in Honduras. Their take on wannabe strongman and ex-president Manuel Zelaya is similar to that of a friend of mine reported in returning from a short-term missions trip last month. What follows is a letter sent to President Obama by the Colbath’s daughter, Hannah, and forwarded to me by a […]

Miguel Estrada writes

Posted · Add Comment

Miguel Estrada was the brilliant conservative lawyer that the Hispanic-friendly Democrats in the Senate filibustered after President Bush nominated him to the D.C. Appeals court early in his first term out of fear that he would later be on the short list for any Supreme Court vacancy. Democrats succeeded. But thankfully Estrada is not constrained […]

Continuing down the wrong path

The Obama State Department continues down the wrong path on Honduras with this two sentence press release. The Department of State is currently reviewing the diplomatic (A) visas of individuals who are members of the de facto regime in Honduras, as well as the derivative visas for family members of these individuals. We have already […]

The state of play in Honduras

President Obama and the leftist-loving State Department continue to side with the thugs of Latin America against the democracy of Honduras. Today’s Wall Street Journal featured two pieces on the subject of Honduras. The first, by Honduran President Roberto Micheletti, lays out the facts of the Honduran constitutional crisis that regular readers of this blog […]

Honduras update

It looks like the forces of democracy are standing strong and wannabe strongman Manuel Zelaya will not be allowed to return to Honduras as president. It would be nice if the Obama administration would take this opportunity to reconsider its decision to side with the likes of Raul Castro, Daniel Ortega and Hugo Chavez, but […]

Zelaya the thief

Posted · Add Comment

This hasn’t gotten anything in the way of coverage in American media, but a Catalan newspaper is reporting that the results of the Honduran referendum on expanding President Manuel Zelaya’s term – the one that never actually occurred – were found on computers in the presidential palace. That’s right, before a single illegal ballot had […]

Honduras and the Obama administration

Posted · Add Comment

Here’s an excellent video of GOP Sen. Jim DeMint grilling an Obama administration nominee on the position the U.S. has taken vis a vis Honduras. The Obama administration appears to believe that the Honduran constitution requires some sort of trial to remove a president who has violated his oath of office. That’s certainly true here […]

Democrats don't do coups right

I mean small “d” democrats when I say that. Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya continues to attempt to return to power despite widespread support for his ouster within that country. An old college friend of mine returned to the U.S. last weekend from doing missionary work in Honduras and his first Facebook comment was that […]
