    All Colin Kaepernick did was connect the progressive dots. He got an A on the test. His conclusion -- that the United States is an evil nation built and maintained for the oppression of black people -- is exactly the point made repeatedly by President Obama, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic platform and any number of progressive candidates and activists. He did nothing that their words have not implicitly demanded time and time again. At the end of last week, in a meaningless preseason NFL game, meaningless back-up 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat down through the national anthem as a sign...

Ms. Lake said the social media furor between those who said she correct, and those who thought she was both unprofessional and wrong, was unexpected.

    Any politician who claims to care about the drug overdose deaths sweeping the nation, but does not demand that we build a wall, deport illegal aliens and end the anchor baby scam, is a liar. In 2014, more people died from drug overdoses than any year in U.S. history: 47,055. That's more than die in car accidents -- and it's not even close. This is a huge, horrible problem -- and it's a problem caused entirely by the fact that Mexico is on our southern border. The diverse, hardworking people of Mexico manufacture the majority of heroin in the U.S....

    When El Chapo was arrested (again) I didn’t pay all that much attention to the story. That’s not to say that it wasn’t important or that both Mexico and the DEA didn’t have a good reason to hunt him down, but it’s not the sort of thing that’s going to change the world in a substantive, positive way. When you take out a cartel kingpin like that there are plenty more ready and eager to take his place. Even if you could identify, locate and take out his entire army, all you’d manage to do would be to cause...

Penn told me at this year's benefit on Saturday night that he's not missing the weapons. "I think guns are not something to be missed," he said.

They were right to do so for four main reasons: the "stand your ground" law is badly flawed, and the evidence is overwhelming; it was directly implicated in Zimmerman's acquittal, even though Zimmerman's lawyers did not...

    With Representative Ron Paul performing solidly in Republican presidential polls and near the top in Iowa a recurring question nags at political wise-guys: Will the Texas libertarians corps of loyal and energized supporters be an asset to an eventual Republican nominee? Or will they be a liability if that nominee is not named Ron Paul meaning, they will vote only for Mr. Paul as a third-party or write-in candidate, or stay home altogether, which would probably help the prospective Democratic nominee, President Obama? Based on discussion with a dozen supporters at candidate events across the state ...

    Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul said Thursday evening that Bush administration officials were gleeful after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks because it gave them a pretext to invade Iraq. "Just think of what happened after 9/11. Immediately before there was any assessment there was glee in the administration because now we can invade Iraq," the Texas Republican told a group of mostly young backers in Iowa. He went on to suggest officials are now setting the stage for an invasion of Iran. Paul, who was tied for second in this week's CBS News/New York Times poll of likely Iowa caucus-goers,...

    On Dec. 8, 1941, Franklin Roosevelt took the rostrum before a joint session of Congress to ask for a declaration of war on Japan. A day earlier, at dawn, carrier-based Japanese aircraft had launched a sneak attack devastating the U.S. battle fleet at Pearl Harbor. Said ex-President Herbert Hoover, Republican statesman of the day, We have only one job to do now, and that is to defeat Japan. But to friends, the Chief sent another message: You and I know that this continuous putting pins in rattlesnakes finally got this country bit. Today, 70 years after Pearl Harbor, a remarkable...

    Youve got to give it to Ron Paul," Palin said. "Whether you agree with everything he says or not, at least he is one there in Congress trying to make our President stick to the law and understand that Congress does have a role to play in these foreign policy decisions that are made and Ron Paul, I think hit the nail on the head, when he came out and said Obama had better be careful when he interjects himself and our country in other nations business.

    Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, the now freed American hikers who were held in an Iranian prison after being convicted for espionage, appeared before cameras and reporters in New York on Sunday and gave prepared statements about their detentions in Iran. Bauer, a freelance journalist, along with Sarah Shourd, a teacher and womens rights activist, and Fattal, an environmentalist, were arrested July 31, 2009 while hiking in Iraqi Kurdistan. Shourd was released last year. Bauer's and Fattal's remarks were critical of American foreign policy towards Iran as well as the Iranian government's treatment of it's own people. "The only explanation...

    American icon Tony Bennett took to the airwaves at Sirius Radio to promote his new album, Duets II, but its what he said about war, peace, terrorism, and who was to blame for the Sept. 11 terror attacks that could get people talking. Sitting down with Howard Stern on Monday, the 85-year-old singer dodged questions about his sex life and prior drug use. He did so with a laugh, but matters about the U.S. military and 9/11 were fair game, and on these topics the Grammy winner held little back... Im anti-war, he said. Its the lowest form of human...

    Just a brief exposure to an image of the American flag shifts voters, even Democrats, to Republican beliefs, attitudes and voting behavior even though most don't believe it will impact their politics, according to a new two-year study just published in the scholarly Psychological Science. What's more, according to three authors from the University Chicago, Cornell University and Hebrew University, the impact had staying power. "A single exposure to an American flag resulted in a significant increase in participants' Republican voting intentions, voting behavior, political beliefs, and implicit and explicit attitudes, with some effects lasting 8 months," the study found....
