Jenny Li Brown University Protest Kelly2

Those who were around during the Vietnam War protest days remember all those marches on Washington. I attended one, and it was absolutely huge and very impressive.

And who can forget the photos of Martin Luther King standing in front of the Washington monument on the Mall?

It’s not clear how effective...

We all know that Hillary Clinton is the first female frontrunner candidate of a major party. That is, she’s long been the frontrunner, and remains the frontrunner, although who knows how long that will continue.

I believe that the only thing that can stop Clinton is an indictment, or...

Donald Trump’s immigration plan is certainly guaranteed to get him even more attention than before.

It’s a wish list for the most anti-illegal-immigrant wing of the electorate, although it also features some workable and laudable proposals that are not unique to Trump.

Reading the text of Trump’s document reminds me somewhat of Barack...

Senator Charles (“Chuck”) Schumer of New York faces a particularly tough choice: back Obama’s Iran deal and anger many of his New York Jewish constituents, or oppose the deal and anger Obama and much of the Democratic Party leadership.

My prediction: Schumer will cave to Obama and cling to his own long-nourished...

Carly Fiorina on FOX

As a huge fan of the very articulate and forceful Carly Fiorina, I’ve been wondering why she continues to score very low in the polls for the Republican nomination. Here’s my attempt at an answer.

I believe Carly Fiorina scores low not only because she lacks name recognition, but because she has...

Netanyahu Speech Congress 2015 standing ovation

Obama’s Iran deal has generated enormous anger, and some of that ire has been directed at the Republicans in Congress.

One of the main accusations against them is that they have made Obama’s task easier by passing Corker-Menendez, a bill that allows them to stop the president from lifting the Iranian...

A quote from Lenin that’s been running through my head, post Iran deal:

“The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.”

There are economic ramifications of the Iran deal, particularly to Europe. Europe was chomping at the bit to get access to trade with Iran, and...

As time goes on, and the Iran nuclear negotiations continue, it’s hard to escape the thought that the Obama administration is becoming more and more desperate for a deal. Any deal.

James Cagney_Yankee Doodle Boy

I saw the film “Yankee Doodle Dandy” on TV close to 30 times when I was a child. Loved it, and in particular loved the idea that James Cagney (whom I already knew as a tough old gangster from other movies) could dance. His dancing fascinated me because it was so...

If you had asked me twenty years ago to predict what the 21st century would hold in store, “religious wars” probably wouldn’t have been tops on my list.

But it should have been.

Right now we’re seeing many forms of religious war. The most obvious has raged between radical Islam and everybody else....

Supreme Court Justices 2010

A dissent has no power except the power of its words and its logic. So Justice Scalia’s dissent in King v. Burwell (joined by Alito and Thomas) is satisfying only in the rhetorical and intellectual sense. But it is so good that I’m highlighting it again anyway.

While thinking about Obama’s comparison of mass murders in the US to the same phenomenon in Europe, it occurred to me that part of what Obama has done during his presidency is to capitalize on an already-existent attitude among many liberals that everything European is better than everything American.

Who are the escaped murderers in New York, and why oh why were they given the prison privileges they appear to have been given?

The answer to the first question is: they are probably among the most psychopathic, cold-blooded killers in the prison population, and that’s saying something. Both of them...
