  • Is the Constitution Good for Mental Health?

    The Texas legislature will face a major “mental health” decision when they meet this January. The question will be whether to pass a replacement law for the psychologists’ licensing statute. Their major problem will be passing something -- if they pass anything at all -- that is constitutional under the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of speech. The issue is that the freedom of speech includes the freedom to talk and listen to whomever you’d like about psychological matters -- thoughts, feelings, behavior, perceptions -- including as a paid service. According to the old Texas law, you needed a license...

    You’re probably appalled at the American media’s shameless whoring for Hillary Clinton, asking yourself why they would so thoroughly debase their much-touted journalistic ethics. President Obama has answered that question. As reported by Agence France Presse, during a recent speech in Pittsburgh he postulated: “We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to. “There has to be, I think, some sort of way in which we can sort through information that passes some basic truthiness tests and those that we have to discard, because they just don’t have any...

    American Thinker ^ | October 26, 2016 | Philip Ahlrich
    In Shakespeare's play, The Tempest, the "damned witch" Sycorax is never seen and presumed dead, but her elemental force works upon the mind of Prospero throughout, suggesting a powerful but unknowable and inarticulate evil that threatens the spell-woven order of the magical island. Although absent from the stage, the witch nevertheless represents a demonizing, subversive and thought-ending influence, the same human influence that every well-conceived constitutional order of government must meet and overcome if it is to endure. But Sycorax, as it turns out, is not dead after all, for she has chosen this moment to enter into the liberal...

    There's a great LifeLock ad where four masked bank robbers burst through the door and yell for everyone to get down. A woman on the floor looks up at a bank guard. "Do something," she whispers. "Oh, I'm not a security guard," the man says. "I'm a security monitor. I only notify people if there's a robbery." He looks over at the armed robbers in stocking masks, holding a hostage. "There's a robbery." Like the security monitor, Americans are passively observing a robbery, the theft of democracy. We're witnessing, in real time, an insurrection, a coup d'état. The definition of...

    Alliances are transmission belts of war. So our Founding Fathers taught and the 20th century proved. When Britain, allied to France, declared war on Germany in 1914, America sat out, until our own ships were being sunk in 1917. When Britain, allied to France, declared war on Germany, Sept. 3, 1939, we stayed out until Hitler declared war on us, Dec. 11, 1941. As the other Western powers bled and bankrupted themselves, we emerged relatively unscathed as the world's No. 1 power. The Brits and French lost their empires, and much else, and ceased to be great powers. Stalin's...

    Students of the Watergate era (or those old enough to have lived through it) will recall the "dirty tricks" played by Richard Nixon's henchmen, most notably Donald Segretti. Segretti, who was hired by Nixon's deputy assistant, Dwight Chapin, was tasked with smearing Democrats, including senator and 1972 presidential candidate, Edmund Muskie of Maine. Among several "tricks," Segretti composed a fake letter on Muskie's letterhead falsely alleging that Sen. Henry "Scoop" Jackson (D-WA) had fathered a child with a 17-year-old girl. In 1974, Segretti pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor counts of distributing illegal, even forged, campaign literature and served four months...

    Despite controversies that rage over immigration, it is hard to see how anyone could be either for or against immigrants in general. First of all, there are no immigrants in general. Both in the present and in the past, some immigrant groups have made great contributions to American society, and others have contributed mainly to the welfare rolls and the prisons. Nor is this situation unique to the United States. The same has been true of Sweden and of other countries in Europe and elsewhere. Sweden was, for a long time, one of the most ethnically homogeneous countries in...

    Some of us this election year don't even want to say the words "Clinton" or "Trump" -- and with good reason. However, there is one word that we should keep in mind: "Turnout." If we sit home in disgust on election day, we forfeit the right -- and the duty -- to elect a Congress that can keep either of these dangerous people from doing permanent damage to this country and to the future of this generation -- and generations yet unborn. Control of Congress has probably never mattered more than in this election, simply because of two out-of-control...

Putin will allow neither ISIS nor the “Syrian rebels”' (whoever and whatever they/that may be) to take Syria from Assad/Russia and Putin/Russia will never leave Syria or the Middle-East again.

    As we get closer to Election Day, there will be a new flurry of stories showing how Hillary has an 85+percent chance of winning—and that her Electoral College count is going to be a landslide. It’s over, basically—that’s the theme. For Reuters, they’re projecting Clinton to win 326 electoral votes, with a 95 percent chance of winning: In the last week, there has been little movement. Clinton leads Donald Trump in most of the states that Trump would need should he have a chance to win the minimum 270 votes needed to win. According to the project, she has a...

On behalf of the American people, we would like to remind Obama about the decline of the Veterans Affairs agency, in which we learned thousands...

    Forget what the polls and pundits are saying, Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States, predicts Stony Brook University professor Helmut Norpoth. Norpoth, who has accurately predicted the last five presidential elections, uses two models. The first, he told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, is the primary model, which tracks how the candidates are performing, and “it usually turns out the candidate who does better in his party's primaries or her party’s primaries beats the other guy who does less well.” He used the primary races in South Carolina and New Hampshire for the 2016 election, where...

    At this point in the campaign, when the leaked evidence of Hillary's abuse of power and Trump's purported sexual improprieties seem to be the main topics of debate, "lesser" matters such as providing for the nation's energy needs have gotten lost in the fray. Yet those matters have a lot to do with which candidate is "fit" to be president. Not surprisingly, Hillary's energy policy is more of the same: the same green energy waste and corruption that we have seen for eight years under Obama. By contrast, Trump has outlined a coherent program of energy development that puts America...

But liberals say Hillary was just doing what she was supposed to do: use any legal trickery to ensure that the guilty walk. This is the corrupted vision of what a fair trial is. It is what liberals have been foisting on America since the Warren Court made up rights to protect criminals. A fair trial is one where the innocent are found innocent and the guilty are found...

Most such Republicans are familiar with the common arguments. Here are some headaches they may not have considered. 1. Trump will own the party – and he will probably run again in 2020.To run again, all Trump has to do is maintain his health, remain in the public eye, and suggest that he will probably serve only one term if elected in 2020. If he wins this year, it will be assumed that he will run for re-election in 2020, so why...

    Hillary Clinton’s health has become a campaign issue, not due to conspiracy theorists but based on troubling videos of her bizarre facial tics, difficulty ascending a set of stairs, lengthy coughing fits, and her collapse after the 9/11 anniversary commemoration in Manhattan. More recently, there is video showing Mrs. Clinton’s eyes not tracking together, crossing and misaligning. As the focus of the campaign turns to Russian hacking, rigged elections, and sketchy polls, Mrs. Clinton’s health has moved off center stage. Yet it still a legitimate concern. Although she has not stumbled or had a public coughing fit, her nontracking eye...

And yet, if the polls hold, Mrs. Clinton will be elected the next president of these United States – the first-ever female commander-in-chief, sure, but still viewed by a healthy majority of Americans as untrustworthy. Is Hillary Clinton crooked, corrupt, dishonest? Or is she simply a mealy-mouthed politician who obfuscates and prevaricates until you wish she’d tell you a straightforward lie? You be the judge. Part of the problem is her husband Bill. The former president has been accused of inappropriate sexual advances and liaisons . . . and even...

Critics call it a "get out of jail early" card. I would add that it's the sort of dishonest measure that becomes commonplace under unaccountable one-party rule. State pols gamed the system to get it on the ballot. The title promises public safety when it could result in the early release of repeat offenders. Yet California voters are likely to...

    Last time a Clinton was on the ballot, I voted for Ross Perot. My vote didn’t deny Bob Dole the White House, but I confess I felt a smug sense of satisfaction in “refusing to settle.” I sure showed them, didn’t I? I haven’t been as vocal as other “Never Trump” writers, but neither have I hidden my dislike or tempered my criticism. In a field of 17 Republican candidates, Donald Trump wouldn’t have been my 18th choice. I’m still not a fan. But they didn’t just ask me; they asked everyone. And more of everyone chose Donald Trump....

    Aleppo, Syria, has lately been the focus of much world attention, with some people even hearing in it the first rumblings of WW3. It is not really possible to sort out the wheat from the chaff in the torrents of information and opinions pouring daily through every conceivable communication channel, without asking the locals for their insights. Dr. Nabil Antaki is one of the brave hearts that chose to remain in Aleppo despite the tragic loss of his brother, killed by 'rebels', to care for the war-wounded, mostly without charging a fee. He is also a member of a small,...

    Let us give credit where it is due: She is polished, refined, well-rehearsed, and expert at hitting all of the focus group-tested notes. Her performance in the third debate was a masterful culmination of forty years of preparation for such a time as this. We conservatives and Alt-Right deplorables are acutely aware of the appalling corruption of the Clintons, from the pay-to-play Clinton Foundation money laundering scheme to the tens of thousands of deleted emails, and from the anti-Islam video as pretext for a riot in Benghazi, Libya to the trail of mysterious deaths of dozens of people who ran...

    As the election nears, the media hype designed to affect the results, demoralize and demonize Trump and his supporters, and confirm the bias of its elite coastal consumers continues. Saturday’s opinion-posing-as-news lead in the Washington Post says the end is near for Trump -- the polls have him down everywhere and he was booed for crass attacks at the Al Smith dinner in New York. What do you expect from media whose reporters are literally in bed with the administration? Not only are reporters feeding debate questions to the Clinton campaign, we have a video of one of them, Andrea...

    Many politicians have a skeleton in their closet. Hillary Clinton has a cemetery, with a sign reading “Waco.” The 1993 Waco showdown began when federal authorities rushed the communal home of a religious group, killing six of them, and losing four agents in return. The FBI then besieged the place with tanks and other armored vehicles, and ended up with the armored vehicles punching holes in the building, and injecting massive quantities of CS “tear gas.” When that didn’t work, the tanks began to demolish the building, eventually smashing about a quarter of it and damaging the remainder. A fire...
  • New Obama Movie Declares, 'Before He Gave Hope...He Was Barry'

    Another gushy movie about President Obama will surface a month after the election. The Root reported that Netflix will be releasing an original movie, Barry, documenting Obama’s early college years. The teaser trailed released Thursday featured a brazenly inspirational message that read, “Before he gave hope, before he created change, before he made us believe ‘we can,’ he was Barry.” This gushy movie probably doesn’t resemble anything like the 2006 movie portraying the fictional assassination of George Bush, Death of a President. According to Entertainment Weekly, the official description for the move states, “In a crime-ridden and racially charged environment,...
  • Despite Hillary's Claims A Private Email Address Was More Convenient,

    One of Hillary Clinton's claims was that having a private email server was a more convenient option than having a State Department email address. However, as some newly-released emails reveal, perhaps this may have been less-than-truthful. An email from Clinton to Huma Abedin complains about how none of her emails are going through, and Abedin replies that perhaps she should let the State Department actually know about the email so that things would stop being redirected to the spam folder. Now, I may not be Secretary of State, but how in the world is that possibly more "convenient" than a...

    While polls show that more Hispanics prefer Hillary over Trump to occupy the White House those Hispanics need to take a close look at what Hillary’s party has done for -- and more importantly, to -- Hispanics in the U.S. The Hispanic population has grown so rapidly that it is difficult to believe that the 1970 Census questionnaire did not include a racial or ethnic category called “Hispanic.” But this was not because Hispanics did not live in the U.S. in significant numbers. The musical West Side Story from the 1950s featured several Puerto Rican main characters, and cities like...
  • In Gettysburg, We Need the Pro-Life, Pro-Growth, King-Dollar Donald Trump

    The Trump campaign has announced that the candidate will deliver a major speech in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, October 22. He will present his closing arguments for American voters, outlining the steps he will take in his first 100 days to make America great again. I hope it’s his best speech yet. For all his gaffes and misstatements, the fact is this: The race is not over until it’s over. (Even when he means it’s over.) So, as Trump heads into his Gettysburg address, I want to emphasize what he should replay from last week’s debate, and what...
  • Disenfranchisement Of Poor Whites Under Hillary

    “Strengthening families” is big in Hillary Clinton’s immigration platform—not American families, but families of undocumented Democrats. To that end—and “within her first 100 days in office”—Hillary has vowed to “introduce comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to full and equal citizenship.” These newly minted Democrats will be speedily naturalized (likely in time for Hillary’s second term). “All families” will be granted “affordable health care,” a privilege very many Americans are without. Yet another political grant of privilege Americans don’t have, unless pigmentally endowed, is affirmative action. The throngs of immigrants and refugees—whose entry into the US Mrs. Clinton will accelerate,...

    Pastor Terry Amann of Des Moines, Iowa, is no stranger to politics. He’s been involved in politics and pro-life activism for decades. Most recently, he was a formidable influence in the last three presidential races. One Iowa State Senator just last week remarked that he is the “most influential pastor in politics in the state of Iowa.”Politics aside, Pastor Amann has a heart for ministry, as evidenced by the single most important issue he addressed when he first met Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Below are his remarks to me about the presidential race, in which he describes how...
