China’s state-run Xinhua news service praised the Chinese Communist Party’s latest volume of the “History of the Chinese Communist Party” as objective, containing “No exaggeration of glory and no denial of failure.”

Among other things, they blame “rightist” thought within the CPC for...

Yale recently announced the closing of the The Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary Study of Antisemitism (YIISA), America’s first academic institute to study anti-Semitism, citing a lack of scholarly output and student interest. The overall Jewish community, and some newspaper columnists, are up in arms, claiming conspiracy.

However,...

You might think so, from the “at least we aren’t hypocrites” defense that comes up every time a Democrat is caught with his pants down where they shouldn’t be.

When liberals and the MSM (…but I repeat myself) amplify Republican sex scandals and minimize Democratic ones by playing the hypocrisy...

This is a Prius; in the parking lot of a Starbucks; in Beverly Hills; with an Apple sticker; and a couple public employee union stickers. (Sheriffs, but still). Yet also, this intriguing anti-Obama bumper sticker. People are complicated that way.

…that is, the fact that he or she is driving a Prius.

I took this picture in the parking lot of the California Republican Assembly convention in Orange County last spring. I saw the same car at the California Republican Convention the following fall in Sacramento, although I am unaware as to the identity of the activist.

In a closed door meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz asked Netanyahu to demand a pledge from the Republican Jewish Coalition not to make Israel a campaign issue in 2012. He did not.

To the uninitiated, Wasserman Schultz’s bizarre request seems...

Sunday was Al-Nakba (“The Catastrophe”) Day, and it’s not just Arabs who are upset. Al-Nakba Day commemorates the defeat of the Arab armies in the 1948 Israeli War of Independence, when, rather than accept a two state solution, they decided to try their hand at genocide...

I have generally believed that Obama did not release his birth certificate because he thought that the birther issue made some of his opponents look foolish. So long as the birther issue was politically beneficial, there was no reason to put it to rest.

Last night, the movement to save America and the states from corruption and insolvency may have suffered a setback in Wisconsin. Prosser has a razor-thin lead, but almost all the outstanding votes are in Kloppenburg counties, and for whatever reason, Democrats seem to usually benefit from recounts. However, regardless...
