Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım will formally announce the deal on Monday at 1PM local time (6AM ET).

How’s the Iran nuclear deal working out?

I’m not asking the broader foreign policy question that Tom Nichols just addressed, but how is the nuclear aspect of the deal by itself working out?

Donald Trump has a “favorability” problem. Poll after poll shows Trump doing poorly against Hillary Clinton head-to-head, perhaps reflecting Trump’s historically low levels of favorability (and high levels of unfavorability) for a leading major party candidate.

In response, a meme was created and spread far and wide earlier this month that Trump’s favorability is no...

We reported previously on the deceptive anti-Israel Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign at NYU, in which BDS supporters try to co-opt unrelated divestment movements, such as fossil fuel.

This campaign has now morphed into a boycott petition at NYU’s Graduate Student Union (GSOC-UAW Local 2110). Meanwhile the deceptive tactics continue.

Most people around the world firmly hold to the view that Israel’s residential housing communities built in Judea and Samaria/the West Bank are “illegal”.

For years, this fictitious claim has fed a wild campaign of incitement and ‘lawfare’ against Israel, based on the myth that Jews have no legal right to live...

Last year there was some speculation that Obama was smoking again–after having quit, he says, because his wife scared him into it.   Whether he is still smoking or not, a Russian advertiser has decided to use the American president’s smoking habit in his or her latest anti-smoking ad campaign.

Have you noticed that when liberals win it’s the “law of the land” and when liberals lose it’s an injustice which needs to be corrected?

A new Texas law allows college students to carry guns on campus but opponents aren’t happy.

Donald Trump said Hillary got “schlonged” in the 2008 election. Trump’s explanation is that it means to be beaten badly:
