Common Core has recently been referred to by a friend of mine who is deeply in-the-know as “the most successful astroturf campaign in the history of this country.” This friend is not prone to exaggeration. The left has had a history of tip-toeing into, and taking over, those institutions most vital to…

Should the United States have pre-empted the Syrian chemical attack?

Posted by
8/26/2013 at 9:15pm
I was skeptical at first about the claims of a chemical attack in Syria. Something didn’t seem right with the photographs. Additionally, it was reported that the United Nations already had an inspection team in Syria. But then it didn’t take long for Israeli intelligence to determine that chemical weapons had…
