1. When and why did you start A Tangled Web?
Back in 2000 so the concept is a decade old. I started it as a forum to get around the bias of the MSM. Here in Northern Ireland, there was a siren chorus praising the appeasement of terrorism (or “peace process” in their vernacular) At the time I was Deputy Leader of a political party that stood on the principle of no talking to terrorists and we found the main stream media an impossible barrier to free debate. Since then it has grown and grown, become a transatlantic blog, discussing all points from Obama, to Islam, to the threat to democracy posed by supranationals such as the UN and EU, you name it we tackle it.
2. Has President Obama been better or worse than you expected?
No better and no worse. I said he would be awful and he is living down to expectations For me the greatest concern lies in his betrayal of Israel and other friendly allies of the US. He has shown an arrogance that should ensure he does not get re-elected in 2012, although the media cannot be trusted to treat any opponent fairly. A lasting image is Obama grovelling to the Saudis – how symbolic of his Presidency. The biggest test of all is coming over how he responds to Israel attacking Iran. This is inevitable since the Mullahs seek to get nukes and Israel must stop them. I fear Obama will flunk the test, equivocate, and expose Israel to Arab aggression.
3. What is the best part about running your site?
The freedom to write about whatever I want and to develop a team of writers who themselves have grown in stature and who provide great content. A Tangled Web is a place for those to come who dissent from the msm viewpoint and where principles prevail.
4. Where do you see Glenn Beck's future in five years?
He’ll make a great V-P to President Palin!
5. Do you believe that President Obama will be re-elected?
Nope. He is a one-termer and that is a no-brainer.
6. Anything else you would like to add?
Yes. I believe that there needs to be a re-alignment of politics for those who are right of liberal, both in the US an UK. Our politicians have lost touch with what counts, they have been seduced into embracing leftist values in order to win media plaudits and they have therefore failed us all. We need to ensure that we, the people, are in charge.
