The Boycott, Divest & Sanction (“BDS”) movement and the broader campaign to delegitimize Israel has had a tough few weeks.  In academia and industry, the boycott campaign has been exposed as potentially discriminatory and unlawful, and yet another panel of experts has affirmed that Israel’s use of force against Hamas is...

If you think the mainstream media is not as much in the tank for Hillary as it was for Obama, you have not been paying attention.

I noted the other night that Donald Trump may have opened the “Overton Window” for Ted Cruz, by making Cruz acceptable to both Republican establishment types and general election voters who otherwise would have considered him Cruz conservative.

I noted the fear of a liberal who wrote:

Here’s something you may have missed over the weekend. While most Americans are concerned about terrorism and the growth of ISIS, President Obama and other world leaders met in Paris to discuss climate change.

You may have noticed that the narrative around violent crimes changes depending on who committed the act. When someone with a Muslim sounding name is the suspect, we’re repeatedly told by the media and public officials not to rush to judgement.

If however, there’s even the slightest chance that the perpetrator is...

Tuesday night, Fox Business and the Wall Street Journal hosted a Republican Presidential debate.

Making a concerted effort to keep questions substantive and issue focused, moderator Neil Cavuto went so far as to say the debate was, “not about the moderators.” Imagine that. A candidate debate in which candidates actually debate issues....

Back in October, the ladies of “The View” decided to take out their political frustrations on Carly Fiorina’s…appearance.

The height of discourse, this show is not.

At any rate, their comments ignited a firestorm of intense politicking that culminated with a second appearance for Fiorina—and a panel in high dudgeon. Whoopi Goldberg kicked...

In this particular tale of media hit job turned embarrassment, we have what might be one of the best public displays of gun ignorance presented as fact I’ve ever seen. The only things missing are a barrel shroud and a couple rounds of rubber bullets.

Back in October, I covered a Gallup poll that showed the majority of Americans don’t support a handgun ban. At the time, only 27% of Americans said they would support such a ban.
