Did you know that the government is shut down right now because the GOP is racist?! Me neither. But that doesn’t stop liberals from *wishing* it were true. (Which is almost kind of like it is *actually* true, right?) You too can become educated on the liberals’ narrative of the government shutdown, thanks…

I’m not overly enamored of the complaint that Obama will negotiate with the Iranians, Syrians and Russians, but not with Republicans. The complaint sounds a little whiny. But it does prove a point. A point that I made long ago about how Obama treats the Israelis and other friends of the U.S., like…

Want to know how we lost the campuses and a generation?  Because we allowed people like Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, one of the Duke Group of 88 professors, to indoctrinate our children: At various points in his teaching or scholarship, Bonilla-Silva has used other names for the country of which he is a citizen.

Obama’s trek for a lunchtime photo op struck me as trying too hard. Contriving to make like he doesn’t have a worry in the world and is in the catbird’s seat tells me he knows his position is just the opposite. So does the cancellation of his Asia trip. Obama knows he…

Israel is being told it must test Iran’s intentions. But the lesson of the Oslo Accords is that untrustworthy partners cannot be trusted without grave consequences.

Writing in The Washington Post, David Ignatious What a war in 1973 can tell us about handling Iran in 2013. By the second clause, you know that the lesson will be to be reasonable with Iran.

A blog post yesterday at Media Matters pretty much sums up what is wrong with the organization. The Boston Globe is about as liberal a newspaper as they come.  As we demonstrated during the 2012 Massachusetts Senate campaign, The Globe ran cover for Elizabeth Warren, touting her supposed Native American ancestry but burying…

I guess this is no surprise. The rising anger of Obama, Harry Reid and other Democrats has made it impossible even to come to agreement on funding NIH clinical trials for children with cancer.

Here’s what Harry Reid said yesterday in answer to a question from CNN’s Dana Bash: What right did [the House of Representatives] have to pick and choose what part of government is going to be funded? It’s obvious what’s going on here. You talk about reckless and irresponsible. Wow. What this is…
