    "Do you ever get tired of defending Donald Trump?" a critic asked. It isn't that Donald Trump does not say things that are cringe-worthy. It's that his opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton, says and does things even more cringe-worthy. So forgive those who feel that Trump's supposedly "outrageous" statements are nothing more than selective outrage, double standards, and the typical "Republicans are racist" meme. Democrats routinely say vulgar, bigoted, divisive, outrageous things while getting a toll-free pass. It wasn't Donald Trump, but Donna Brazile, then Al Gore's campaign manager, who said Republicans have a "white-boy attitude." It wasn't Donald Trump, but...
  • Malpractice: The Journalistic Assassination Of Ryan Lochte

    Man, that Ryan Lochte, what a jerk! Am I right? Of course I’m right. It’s backed up by journalism. There isn’t a news outlet on the planet that hasn’t carried a story about how Lochte and three other swimmers no one bothers to name got hammered at the Rio Olympics, trashed a bathroom at a gas station, and traumatized innocent security guards, women, children, and plant life alike. But what if it didn’t happen that way? What if, with the exception of a few minor details flubbed in a drunken haze, Lochte and his fellow mermen told the truth? That...

    Emphasizing diversity has been the pitfall, not the strength, of nations throughout history. The Roman Empire worked as long as Iberians, Greeks, Jews, Gauls and myriad other African, Asian and European communities spoke Latin, cherished habeas corpus and saw being Roman as preferable to identifying with their own particular tribe. By the fifth century, diversity had won out but would soon prove a fatal liability. Rome disintegrated when it became unable to assimilate new influxes of northern European tribes. Newcomers had no intention of giving up their Gothic, Hunnish or Vandal identities. The propaganda of history's multicultural empires -- the...

    There are some days where the news makes you want to bang your head on your keyboard. This is one of those days. Today, there was a group of students down at the University of Texas keeping Austin weird as they to protest campus carry. While organizers reportedly started the rally as a joke, the protest grew in popularity and had a large number of malleable young adults turning out to rally against one constitutional right while exercising another. Pro-Second Amendment Group Students for Concealed Carry approved of the protest with their Texas State Director Brian Bensimon stating “If carrying...

    In recent days, a bunch of entertainment industry denizens gathered together behind a phalanx of armed guards at Justin Timberlake’s mansion to sip chardonnay and celebrate Hillary Clinton’s commitment to the poor and gun control. She came out of witness protection long enough to pocket some cash before returning to her previously scheduled indifference to the people flooded out in Louisiana. In Martha’s Vineyard, Barack Obama donned his mom shorts to chip some balls with that tiresome guy from Curb Your Enthusiasm before petulantly visiting the waterlogged South. And noted disaster logistics specialist Samuel L. Jackson smirked over a photo...

TRUMP: Tonight's message is about redeclaring our independence as a country.

    The media and much of the Republican establishment have caught on to only part of a story about a shady deal that the Obama administration made with the Islamic Republic of Iran, a deal that took a rather labyrinthine and bizarre form. What they are talking about is bad enough, which involves paying a ransom for hostages, opening up Americans to kidnappings and imprisonment whenever they travel abroad. The part of the story that they are missing, however, is that what the administration did was highly illegal, according to statutes we still have on our books. On August 3rd, a...

    Your government is on red alert: between 2006 and 2014, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), an agency of the Department of Agriculture, spent nearly $4.8 million to purchase shotguns, propane cannons, liquid explosives, pyro supplies, drones, thermal imaging cameras, and more. APHIS describes itself as “a multi-faceted Agency with a broad mission area that includes protecting and promoting U.S. agricultural health, administering the Animal Welfare Act, and carrying out wildlife damage management activities.” Liquid explosives and shotguns are apparently necessary to carry out its “broad mission.” This is one of many revelations found in a new investigative...

    Considering the incredibly low expectations that many Republicans have for Donald Trump, the man barely needs to do anything to rise above the dismal speculation. Consequently, the odds on Trump paying off over a bonafide communist are clearly worth taking. Let’s just be real. Calling Hillary Clinton a Democrat, a liberal, a progressive, or anything else doesn’t change the fact that she is a communist. That’s just what people are who advocate class warfare, state ownership of all property, gun control, and an egalitarian Utopia. Stating the obvious isn’t a jibe or name calling -- it’s reality. Democrats are rewriting...

    You know those polls where they ask people if the country is heading in the right direction? One problem with that question is that it lacks context or detail. What makes us say yes or no? ItÂ’s generally a gut reaction that often has little to do with any actual evidence.And letÂ’s face it. ItÂ’s ridiculous to assume that everything is going one way or the other.

    Nine years ago, Gawker ran a blog post headlined "Peter Thiel Is Totally Gay, People." The item rankled Thiel, a billionaire who had co-founded Paypal and invested early in Facebook but had not yet gotten around to publicly acknowledging his sexual orientation, although he had told people close to him. This week, Thiel finally got his revenge, as Gawker ceased operations, driven out of business by an invasion-of-privacy lawsuit he financed. Whether or not you mourn the loss of Gawker, a website known for its snarky blend of gossip and journalism, its death does not bode well for freedom of...

    Timbuktu, located in Mali, is a classic idiom for nowhere. However, the great caravan city the southern Sahara was -- and still is -- a cultural somewhere rich in Arab, Berber and sub-Saharan African historical structures and cultural artifacts. In 2012, the al-Qaida-aligned Islamic terrorist group, Ansar Dine, intentionally attacked Timbuktu's historic trove. Its thugs intentionally destroyed or vandalized 60 tombs. In late June and early July, the thugs severely damaged Timbuktu's acclaimed Sidi Yahia mosque -- yes, radical Islamists damaging a mosque. Several tombs were shrine-mausoleums dating back to the 14th century. Malians, who are overwhelmingly Muslims, treasured the...

    From time immemorial, humankind has regarded it as a blessing to be fruitful and multiply. Not Travis Rieder.A philosopher and bioethics instructor at Johns Hopkins University, Rieder was the focus of a recent NPR story, in which he argued that having children is immoral and should be discouraged with government penalties. It's not that Rieder dislikes children — in fact, he has a 2-year-old daughter of whom he's quite fond. But with "dangerous climate change" approaching a tipping point "very, very soon," he says, bringing more children into the world is unethical. After all, every additional baby means additional carbon...

    In today’s public policy arena, winning ideas rarely are decided by sound logic, accurate facts, or even by the most votes. Instead, content filters and algorithms, meticulously engineered by social media companies like Facebook and Twitter, intentionally steer public debate in the direction of their owners’ personal politics; and, not coincidentally, toward the politics of their liberal friends in Washington and Sacramento.For starters, consider Facebook – the Big Daddy of social media. There have been numerous reports of Facebook’s algorithm taking down popular pages of pro-gun organizations. But even this example of the “new censorship” pales when viewed in the...

    Religious liberty concerns continue to weigh heavily on church-going Americans. In a recent survey from Pew Research, 40 percent of those who reported attending church in the last few months said that clergy spoke about religious liberty. No other issue received more attention from clergy. And not surprisingly so. The aggressive growth of secularism in our nation, along with the natural outgrowth of this, the tendency of secularists to turn to big government to define and implement what they perceive as fair, is on a collision course with religious liberty. Traditional church-going Americans have always taken comfort in the first...

    In general, in a campaign filled with controversial statements, it's fair to say Donald Trump doesn't do apologies and he doesn't do regret. Which is why it was extraordinary that in his speech in Charlotte Thursday night -- one of his first under a new campaign management -- Trump did that rarest of things: he expressed regret for rhetorical excesses of the past and conceded that they may have caused pain for some people. "Sometimes in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don't choose the right words or say the right thing," Trump told...

    As the fall semester begins, parents, students, taxpayers and donors should be made aware of official college practices that should disgust us all. Hampshire College will offer some of its students what the school euphemistically calls "identity-based housing." That's segregated housing for students who -- because of their race, culture, gender or sexual orientation -- have "historically experienced oppression." I'd bet the rent money that Hampshire College will not offer Jewish, Irish, Polish, Chinese or Catholic students segregated housing. Because there is no group of people who have not faced oppression, Hampshire College is guilty of religious and ethnic discrimination...

During her 3 ˝-hour interview with the FBI on July 2, she told investigators that former Secretary of State Colin Powell had advised her to use a personal email account during a private dinner. Powell denies the story. “The truth is she was using [her personal email] for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did [when I was in office],” he told the New York Post’s...

    This week the conservative media is noticing that even the president’s cheering section at the New York Times is wising up to Obama’s mistakes in Syria, Libya, Iran, and more. But I think that the disaster of the president’s foreign policy is the least of his problems. I think the real mistake is the president’s ruthless attempt to push the liberal agenda to the max during the last eight years. I see why the president returned the bust of Churchill to the Brits. He just doesn’t believe: In victory or magnanimity. And now I have the founder of the Democratic...

    Are the presidential polls a true measure of the electorate’s decision or are they a never ending measurement of odds? A few months ago Donald Trump had a lead on Hillary Clinton. Then after a series of the Donald’s misstatements, his questionable actions, Hillary’s advertising barrage and Trump’s hierarchy reshuffling, the roles reversed in the polls. It all sounded like the track announcer calling the seventh race at Aqueduct. “Annnnd it’s Hillary surging to the lead, with a quarter mile to go.” As the pollster’s numbers changed I was left with a series of unanswered questions.

    What is the “biggest unfinished business for the Obama administration?” According to a report from Bill McKibben, the outspoken climate alarmist who calls for all fossil fuels to be kept in the ground, it is “to establish tight rules on methane emissions”—emissions that he blames on the “rapid spread of fracking.” McKibben calls methane emissions a “disaster.” He claims “methane is much more efficient at trapping heat than carbon dioxide” and that it does more damage to the climate than coal. Methane, CH4, is the primary component of natural gas. To buttress his anti-fracking argument, McKibben is selective on which...

    It’s true that on some of the most pressing of issues—immigration, trade, and foreign policy—Donald Trump’s “America First” positions are more align with traditional conservatism than are those of any other candidate. That is, they clash with the neoconservatism, the faux “conservatism,” that the GOP Establishment and its media apologists have promoted for decades as the genuine article. Yet this being said, in Trump’s nearly 70 years, until very recently, he has done little to nothing to indicate that he has so much as an awareness of the classical conservative tradition, much less a commitment to it. Even if he...

No tears. No wailing. He sits there unflinching, caked in soot and a face half-covered in blood from a nasty gash atop his head. It’s hard to stomach as a human. Nearly unwatchable as a father. While many remain deeply divided over how America should respond to the growing number of atrocities, the same audience seethes...

    Riots broke out in Milwaukee the other day, and before that in other cities, each erupting with familiar sights: fire and pain, anger and looting. It will likely happen again in some other urban area, perhaps after a black man is killed by a police officer, whether the shooting is justified or unjustified. Was the victim a known criminal pointing a gun at a cop? Or not? These are reasons, but reasons really don't matter now, do they? The fire is the thing. The anger is the thing.

During the past week he seems to have gotten back on track, and is putting behind him some of his previous missteps. But there’s still more he needs to do in order to win over some of the groups he’s ‘gotten out of sync’ with during his campaign. Trump has an uphill struggle to win over the women’s vote, which will be critical in...

    A federal judge in Fort Worth, Texas, Monday disallowed the Obama administration's attempt to change the nation's mind on the latest liberal social cause: sex-alteration. Judge Reed O'Connor enjoined the administration from enforcing new directives from the Departments of Justice and Education, which would prop open public-school restroom doors for access by students identifying with a gender different from the one they were assigned at birth. How this moral/constitutional tangle gets resolved we will learn in due course. Meanwhile, O'Connor's decision highlights a campaign issue deserving of the closest attention, despite its receiving, up to now, almost none. The Bolsheviks...

    "Never let a crisis go to waste" was the pithy advice of Rahm Emanuel, who has since gone on to become the mayor of America's most violent large city. "And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." Rahm was speaking in November 2008 about the newly elected president, Barack Obama. That was three weeks after Obama had told a campaign rally: "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America." With only five months left in the White House, Obama is still hard at work...

    ItÂ’s one thing when a U.S. political party (Democrat) recruits U.S.-based news networks as full-time propaganda auxiliaries. That every U.S.- based network (except Fox News) has long served in this subservient capacity for the Democratic party has long been obvious to every analyst and commentator with functioning eyes, ears and cerebrum. Efforts by both parties mentioned above to deny this parasitic and incestuous bond are too pathetic to merit further comment in a column meant for intellectually sophisticated readers. So let us proceed to more engaging themes.When Fidel Castro celebrated his 90th birthday last week U.S.-based CNN was the eager...

    Patricia Hearst is the first person in American history to receive a commutation from one president and a pardon from another, author Jeffrey Toobin writes in his book, "American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst." Hearst had served 22 months of a seven year sentence in federal prison for bank robbery when President Jimmy Carter commuted her sentence -- sentence reductions are part of the presidential pardon power embedded in the U.S. Constitution. Later, Bill Clinton pardoned -- that is, removed all punishment and restored her civil rights -- Hearst. She was one...

    Every election cycle we must endure challenges and allegations about fraud (conservatives) and discrimination (liberals) when it comes to voter ID laws. This year is no different. A federal court ruled that the Texas Voter ID law passed in 2011, requiring voters to present official photo identification, discriminated again poor, minority and disabled voters and ordered a judge to approve new interim rules for the Nov. 8 election. The new rules will broaden the list of acceptable forms of ID. Voters will now be able to present, among other things, an expired ID, a government check or a current utility...
  • The Hypocrisy of the Black Lives Matter Movement and the Southern Poverty Law Center

    The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has many allies within the Progressive movement. Funded largely by the most liberal elements of the Left, especially those within the George Soros network, like his Center for American Progress, BLM has been a major motivator for the attacks on police officers all over the country. With chants like “Pigs in a blanket, fry-em like bacon” and “What do we want? Dead Cops!,” the simple fact is that BLM has created an atmosphere of anger and hatred, and has incited violence against law enforcement officers across the country. In no way has the killing and...
  • This Angry White Male Thinks Key to Trump Victory Is...Black Voters!

    My new book “ANGRY WHITE MALE” comes out today. So it might come as a surprise that the ultimate “Angry White Male” and author of a book about angry white males and “The Trump Phenomenon” would say that black Americans are the key to Trump’s victory.  But they are. I’ve been arguing in the media for well over a year now that Donald Trump will win because of 40 million motivated "angry white males." That’s his base…his foundation…his loyal army. Trump is the face of "the angry white male revolution." He is our energy. He sings our anthem. We’re mad as...

    I asked a successful businessman the other day what he thought about Donald Trump. He turned his thumb down. Wow. "Are you going to vote for Hillary?" I asked with trepidation. "Of course not," he replied, almost insulted by the question. "I understand the concept of a binary decision." I got a similar response when I asked oil magnate T. Boone Pickens whether he would vote for Trump. He looked at me with a quizzical expression and replied: "Well, who else is there to vote for?" Right. Who else is there? Yet, amazingly, a caucus of lifelong Republican politicos in...

    Victims aren't always virtuous. That's a sad lesson that people learn from life. Human beings have a benign instinct to help those who are hurt through no cause of their own. But those they help don't always turn out to be very grateful. And sometimes it's hard to be sure just who the victim is. The most heavily publicized and violence-prompting police killings of young black men -- in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, and Milwaukee this month -- appeared to be, as the facts became known, justifiable responses to felons' assaults. Such incidents are, unhappily, frequent, because young black men,...

    Amid the rioting in Milwaukee, there is also a clash between two leading lawmen there -- Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and the city of Milwaukee's Chief of Police Edward Flynn. They have very different opinions about how law enforcement should be carried out. Chief Edward Flynn expresses the view long prevalent among those who emphasize the social "root causes" of crime, such as income disparities and educational disparities, as well as the larger society's neglect of black communities. Chief Flynn puts less emphasis on aggressive police action and more on community outreach and gun control. Sheriff David Clarke represents...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: One of the many things Trump did in a series of speeches recently is make an appeal to African-American voters. Now, this is something that Republicans have been urging Republican leaders to do frequently. It's implicitly rooted in the fact that if the Democrats could just be forced to lose 10% of African-American vote, that it would seriously damage the Democrats' presidential aspirations. They routinely get 90 to 93% of the African-American vote, and it's assumed that there's nothing to be done. But yet there are often calls, and have been for decades, for Republicans to make...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: We've gotta guy coming up who thinks that this election is not about left and right, it's not about particularly Republican versus Democrat or conservative versus liberal, but rather something else, nationalist versus globalist, populist versus globalist, and I think that's right, in many ways. I think there's still ideological components to this race, particularly in the area of Trump's outreach to African-Americans. Now, clearly, if you want to do that and do it right, there has to be an ideological component to it. And there's some other things in the campaign that are that way, but...

They've had some terrible flooding there. There hasn't been one representative of the Obama administration get even close to Louisiana. (interruption) I'm sorry. I didn't know that. Jeh Johnson went for a day? The guy who spells his name J-e-h, okay, Jeh Johnson went for a day. Who is he, Homeland Security? Right, so the Homeland Security guy went down there for a day.
