    Vladimir Putin probably had to wait 20 minutes for an elevator. Yeah, that's the ticket . . . Josh Earnest, Barack Obama's spokesman, has excused Vladimir Putin's snub of the President of the United States, in which the Russian strongman turned up 20 minutes late for their lunch at the UN yesterday. On today's Morning Joe, Earnest lamely defended Vlad's tardiness: "anybody that's been around the UN during the General Assembly knows it's total chaos inside that building, so people ae running late quite frequently. " Right. And if you believe that, we've got an oceanfront condo in Moscow to...

This is a war against all people who are not of the Muslim faith or who do not support Islam and Sharia Law. Make no mistake, we are under attack by Muslims.

    The Emperor’s New Clothes is the tale of an Emperor who loves clothes above all else. One day, two swindlers come to town who say they can weave the most magnificent, brilliantly colored cloth. And, they confide, garments made from this fabric have the special power of being invisible to those who are stupid or not fit for their post. The Emperor hires the swindlers and they set to work. In time, he sends trusted officials to check on the weaver’s progress. The officials see only empty looms but know of the cloth’s special power. So they tell the Emperor...

The politically correct regime and the progressive media have made it a favorite topic. Donald Trump was recently lambasted for not correcting a member of the audience at a New Hampshire Town Hall Meeting-he may have been a plant-who suggested our President might be a Muslim. Trump did say he would look into the Muslims of America training camps here in the United States, but ignored the rest of the...

In 2003, the Department of Justice appointed a special counsel to investigate allegations that Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, unlawfully disclosed the covert status of CIA operative Valerie Plame. Yet Plame may not have been a covert undercover agent, based on the formal government definition of that role. And even if she were, it was widely known at the time that Secretary of State Colin Powell's subordinate, Richard Armitage, had most likely disclosed her status earlier. In other words, Libby was in an Orwellian position of being accused of a crime...

Specifically, the arms embargo is not tied to the snapback; it is tied to a separate set of obligations. So they are not in material breach of the nuclear agreement for violating the arms piece of it. Not to worry, Kerry explains, because there are ‘other sanctions’ the US could impose — plus, we mustn’t forget about the ‘specific...

    In the view of The New York Times and other beacons of the liberal media, President Barack Obama’s policies are a resounding success and he rarely makes a misstep. The harmful effects of his policies, as well as his many scandals, must be ignored or covered up with misleading statistics and deceitful reporting that preserve his radical, left-wing legacy, and even make it sound mainstream.

    In my current book, Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Family and Marriage, I write of the phenomenon of Communist Party marriages. “Theirs was the first ‘party marriage’ that I observed,” wrote Whittaker Chambers in Witness, describing the decidedly non-sacramental marriage of two of his Communist Party comrades, before writing of his own “party marriages.” From Marx and Engels, to Herbert Marcuse and Wilhelm Reich, to Betty Friedan and Kate Millett, to Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, our comrades on the far left have bequeathed a legacy of noxious ideas on marriage and family. Their political-cultural...

    Here are 36 reasons why I would not be surprised if Obama wanted Iran to destroy Israel I have a crazy conspiracy, for which I have no proof, and for which I could be completely wrong: Obama’s #1, long term, biggest goal as President, which supersedes anything else, is that he wants to help Iran get enough uranium to build enough nuclear bombs to destroy Israel. Here are 36 reasons why I would not be surprised if it turned out that Obama really did want Iran to use nuclear bombs to destroy Israel:1) When Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, Obama...

    What is the Obama administration working towards? There are signs of the past, and what his own words have spoken to as to the future of the United States. There is no moderation in the progressive cabal that runs the country. And with the help of traitorous Republicans, the left is working on the final few steps needed to destroy the cultural and societal basics that have served this country well. The judiciary, thanks to hard leftists and Justice John Roberts, has effectively gutted the Constitution on behalf of “social justice,” a socialist agenda leading to the destruction of the...

    If you’ve ever played the shell game – one ball and three half coconuts – then you understand the entire charade behind this so-called economic recovery: deception. Let me introduce you to subtraction, addition’s tricky friend! According to astute celebrities like Chris Rock, only in America could a black President lower the unemployment rate to less than 6%, reduce the price of gas to $2.50 a gallon, end two wars – despite accounting for 75% of all casualties and using the exact same timetable as George Bush – and still somehow be considered a failure. Hmm, well that depends on...

    Since I read a lot, and doing so makes it rather easy to connect the dots, I occasionally publish “Ed’s Fearless Forecasts.” They are generally distributed to a few faithful friends who will permit me to say “I told you so,” or have the good grace not to mention it when my forecasts fail. (My record, so far, is about 50/50.) Realizing that the closing of the “Guantanamo Naval Base and Prisoner Recreation Facility” is high on the President’s priority list, and observing that his several efforts at closing it have not been particularly successful, last December 18th I offered...

    Freedom, both the incandescent whisper of revolution and the reduced triviality of commercialism, is the seed from which the most opulent columns of civilization have sprung and the hammer from which the most prolific empires have fallen. If history has taught us anything, other than man’s propensity for the most transcendent achievements and the most grotesque atrocities, it’s that you cannot fight or defeat an idea, even long after its armies are vanquished. It endures as long as man endures and believes in its undying premise. What is liberty’s most quintessential definition? Is it merely a politician’s word, wrapped around...

    The Washington Post ventured down to Bastrop, Texas on Saturday and found an undetermined amount of people who fear that President Obama is plotting to impose martial law in the Lone Star State as part of a military operation called Jade Helm. Other citizens of Bastrop, mainly Democrats, said that this paranoia was racially motivated because the president is African American. It is unknown exactly how many people hold to these views.
