Professor Jacobson has opined on the question of whether Ted Cruz qualifies to be president as a “natural born citizen.” The short answer is: he definitely does. However, as Professor Jacobson also indicated, that hasn’t stopped Trump from attempt...

The recent sexual gropings amidst the New Year’s Eve crowds in various European capitals, apparently perpetrated by gangs of Muslim men on local women, have thrown Europe’s progressives into turmoil. They are being presented with the dilemma of choosing between two favored principles: the freedom of modern women to move...

I realize that at this point polls don’t matter too much, if at all. But they still interest me, because they’re the best evidence we’ve got about public opinion. They can also tell us something about trends, and the trend for Hillary right now appears to be down.

[UPDATE 1/6/2016: The answer to the question is yes, the bill will get to Obama’s desk. The measure passed.]

Remember that slogan, “repeal and replace”? There have actually been quite a few bills passed in the House to repeal Obamacare during the last couple of years, whether you’ve noticed them...

So who’s using whom?

Rush Limbaugh says that Trump has the media frustrated and wrapped around his little finger:

…[T]hey can’t take him out. They can’t stop covering him. They can’t humiliate him. They can’t embarrass him. They can’t diminish his support. They’re powerless, and this has them in a panic. The media...

Trump has now scandalized people by using a Yiddish expression to describe what happened to Hillary Clinton at the hands of the Obama forces back in 2008:

She was favored to win and she got schlonged, she lost.

Now, for those of you who aren’t especially up on Yiddish, “schlong” is one of...

Why did Paris and San Bernardino affect people so deeply?

Why indeed? After all, 9/11 was far, far worse in terms of loss of life. The attacks themselves during 9/11 were far more high-tech and fiendishly clever, as well. There have been many, many terrorist attacks since, and they have all caused outrage and consternation. But something about the Friday the...

The number of Syrian Christian refugees the United States has taken in is extremely small.

And yet this is a group that ought logically to be first in line because members face the most obvious danger and persecution—not only in Syria, but in several Arab or Muslim countries to which they might...

President Obama used his regular weekly radio address on Saturday to discuss the San Bernardino shootings, which now have been categorized—although not by Obama—as the worst terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11. He will give a televised speech from the Oval Office Sunday night.

In the radio address, Obama offered very tepid...

Here’s a fascinating article (to me, anyway) written by a man named Teun Voeten who moved to the Molenbeek section of Brussels back in 2005 and lived there for nine years.

In case you haven’t heard, Molenbeek is the area mostly populated by Muslim immigrants and their offspring, and it was the...

Obama’s taunt that Republicans “are scared of widows and orphans” takes on an ironic twist in light of the fact that one of the dead in Wednesday morning’s Paris raid was a female suicide bomber, Hasna Aitboulahcen [Featured Image].

The best approach to addressing the ISIS threat would have been one of prevention—an ounce of it worth far more than a pound of cure.

An obvious move would have been to keep a small residual force in Iraq, back when even Obama was crowing about the successful transition there. Another...

How the Republican candidates react to the vicious terrorist attacks in Paris tells us something about their attitude towards Islamic terrorism in general (for example, do they use the phrase?) and what to do about it.

The first response I read early today was from Ben Carson. An excerpt:
