Mark Twain once wrote that “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

In the age of the internet, that saying should be updated to “three times around the world”, as is evidenced by the story behind the resignation of a British scientist.

One one hand, it is comforting to know President Obama can target the enemy and use American resources to counter it.

On the other hand, it is very disturbing when that enemy is . . . climate change.

Obama is acting upon his delusion that the biggest global security threats involve weather patterns...

As summer officially opens, battle lines are being drawn in the war against “cultural appropriation”.

This particular engagement pits Sioux Indians against a counter-cultural group that loves Native Americans a little too much.

The peace and love were interrupted by profanity Monday as Rainbow Family members confirmed their plan to congregate an estimated...

The federal government is regulating the American meal, again.

This time, the target is trans-fat!

The Obama administration is ordering food companies to phase out the artery-clogging trans fats that can lead to heart disease, the country’s leading cause of death.

The Food and Drug Administration announced Tuesday that it would require food makers to...

A leaked version of the climate change encyclical written by Pope Francis ignited a storm of controversy earlier this week.

The unexpected leak of Pope Francis’ much-anticipated environmental encyclical has meant the return of something that not long ago was fairly common around the Vatican but had become often dormant during the...

It seems like only yesterday we were reporting on Dr. Matt Taylor, the brilliant British scientist who was instrumental in landing a probe on a comet hundreds of millions of miles away, who became the target of social media wrath.

His crime: Wearing a shirt that was deemed “anti-woman” by hyper-feminists.

Aleister’s grim update on Vermont’s Obamacare struggles prompted me to double check the status of Covered California, the supposed poster child of successful state exchanges.

As I suspected, the prognosis is not good.

Covered California has lost bragging rights for highest health-insurance exchange enrollment to Florida, new federal figures show.

What is the line between political hyperbole and utter fantasy?

Whatever it is, President Obama has completely crossed that particular Rubicon. I recently noted that his assertions that America has become more respected internationally under his watch were not quite based in reality.

As the American press reports breathlessly on the #WarOnWomen in conjunction with Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Run Version 2.0, two of Professor Jacobson’s colleagues are battling to defend research showing that there may actually be a campus #WarOnMen.

Now that former Senator Rick Santorum has dived into the presidential pool, I thought I would check the status of a candidate who is already in — Carly Fiorina.

Early in her candidacy, Professor Jacobson noted she was “rocking it” by taking the fight to Hillary Clinton. She continues to show the...
