Obama Iran Nuke Deal Announcement 3

I can’t recall an event since I started this website in 2008 that has been as historically consequential as the nuclear deal the United States and five other countries just struck with Iran.

It is the sweep of history.

The deal is Obama’s deal. He drove it, he crafted it with John Kerry...

At this point, the Obama administration silence on the murder of Kate Steinle by an illegal immigrant with a long criminal record who had been deported five times is even more deafening.

They just don’t care.

Kate Steinle isn’t important to Obama. Because there’s no political gain in Obama’s base on this...

Marie Brenner, writing in Vanity Fair, explores whether Jews should leave France.

The French language version of the article is titled Paris En Flammes. With my distant recollection of high school french, that translates as Paris in Flames.

But the English language version has a more descriptive title, The Troubling Question in the...

Kate Steinle was killed by an illegal immigrant who had been deported at least 5 times and had a lengthy criminal record.

That’s an inconvenient fact for the Obama administration, apparently, because unlike in numerous other cases of interracial violence, for Kate Steinle the President had no words of comfort.

Martha Robertson Extreme Ithaca Liberal

The last two Democratic congressional nominees in my home district NY-23, which stretches along the “Southern Tier,” have been Ithaca-area liberals.

Nate Shinagawa ran a credible campaign in 2012, and lost by almost exactly the party difference in the district, which is R+3. Democrats had high hopes for Martha Robertson in 2014,...
