Branco cartoon (though he referred to the Hamas guy as the Ayatollah — but the intend was right). https://twitter.com/LegInsurrection/status/644313310201049088 This was the moment of the night. I don’t know if anything can stop The Donald, but he was humuliated by Fiorina’s response,…

Jeremy Corbyn is the radical leftist anti-Israel British politican with very shady associations who recently was elected leader of the Labour Party. The Conservative Party, which last spring won a resounding victory, was celebrating because Corbyn is deemed unelectable at the top of the Labour Party ticket in a General Election. Corbyn’s associations…

Russia has been an important ally of Syria’s during the Assad regime’s four year struggle to maintain its hold on power.

George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four is a dystopian masterpiece. Part of the book’s genius lies in its nomenclature, and most definitely its insight into the political propaganda process. Thus, the Ministry of Truth, or “Minitrue” for short: As with the other Ministries in the novel, the Ministry of Truth is a misnomer and…

Today, advocacy group #AllowDebate will occupy the steps of the Democratic National Committee headquarters and perpetuate a little Democrat-on-Democrat violence over what many believe are unfair and unreasonable restrictions on the Democratic primary debate schedule.

Ted Cruz just released an ad warning of a Scorpion in the Desert. The identity of the Scorpion is not mentioned. But it’s obvious. The ad is very similar to Ronald Reagan’s successful Bear in the Woods ad: Reagan never mentioned the identity of the bear. He didn’t have to.

Palestinians are among the largest recipients of international aid, per capita, in the world. Yet all we hear about is U.S. aid to Israel, which is entirely military and most of which comes back to U.S. companies because it is required to be spent on U.S.-made equipment. International aid to Palestinians doesn’t come…

Naturally, the government has to ruin everything, including Little Free Libraries. You may have seen one of these little bird house turned mini-libraries in your neighborhood. They’re a lovely idea. Simple, no fuss, and quite fun. Donate a book, borrow a book. Nothing to sign, no due date, no late fees,…
