  • Obama Bets Nuclear Deal Will Change Iran's Regime; Few Agree

    "Faute de mieux." That means "for want of something better" in Secretary of State John Kerry's second language. It's also the best case made by its journalistic defenders for approval of the nuclear weapons deal Kerry negotiated with Iran. Or to be more exact, for rallying 34 votes in the Senate or 146 votes in the House to uphold a presidential veto of a congressional vote to disapprove. It's a measure of the weakness of the deal that such a grudging argument is needed to rally such an unimpressive proportion of members of Congress. New York Times reporter Thomas Friedman,...

    RUSH: A new Fox poll out yesterday, last night shows Donald Trump is just soaring. Trump is gaining ground on everybody in the GOP field and over Hillary. It's a Fox News poll, NBC poll, and in both of these polls, Hillary, the bottom is starting to fall out identically, exactly as it started to happen in 2008. And that's why the Democrats are starting to push out these stories about what a great guy Biden is and those gaffes that he makes, why, they just make him more lovable. That's old Joe.

    If every conservative and moderate in America disappeared tomorrow, liberals would party like they won the Super Bowl. Five years later, the entire economy would collapse; Cuba, Mexico and Canada would be occupying parts of the United States and President Bernie Sanders would be encouraging people to burn down the remaining businesses that hadn’t gone under to protest unemployment. They’re pursuing both spending and immigration policies that could fairly be called suicidal for America. On the international scene, Obama has managed to restart the Cold War with Russia, throw away two wars Bush had already won in Afghanistan and Iraq...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) will break with his party and vote to defund Planned Parenthood today. Manchin said in a statement that he’s “very troubled by the callous behavior of Planned Parenthood staff in recently released videos, which casually discuss the sale, possibly for profit, of fetal tissue after an abortion.” “Until these allegations have been answered and resolved, I do not believe that taxpayer money should be used to fund this organization; instead those funds should be sent to other health care providers, including community health centers, which provide important women’s healthcare services,” the senator said. “While my vote...

    If you like your electricity, you can keep your electricity. The White House announced the release of his “Clean Power Plan” late yesterday, which plans to cut carbon emissions from power plants in the US by 30%. Obama promised in his own message that this would result in lower energy prices, which sounds very similar to the promises made with ObamaCare — that later turned out to be the Lies of the Year once implemented:

    resident Obama on Monday announced new regulations on power-plant carbon emissions that will have a dramatic impact on how Americans make, store and use energy. The president, speaking at the White House, touted the plan as a necessary step to combat global warming, even as the coal industry gears up to challenge the controversial regulations in court and Republicans prepare to fight them in Congress. "There is such a thing as being too late when it comes to climate change," Obama said. The plan calls for a 32 percent emissions cut by 2030, as compared with 2005 levels. The goals...

    Six months before a single primary vote is cast, Fox News and the RNC are making a historic move — they have decided to make the decision for the voters and arbitrarily limit the GOP field to ten. They have chosen who constitutes a serious candidate and who constitutes a B-lister based on the average of several early national polls. The use of national polling itself is problematic, as it gives a clear advantage to well-funded candidates with a clear national presence, while putting grassroots movements at a significant disadvantage. It also prioritizes celebrity over substance. In spite of her...

    Nazi monster Dr. Josef Mengele is known to have ordered the murder of over 400,000 Jews at Auschwitz from 1943 to 1945. Thousands more he kept alive and mercilessly tortured to death during experiments intended to create an Aryan super-race. Much of Mengele’s “medical research” was conducted on children and newborns – especially twins. One witness described what happened after Mengele once delivered a Jewish “fetus”: “But when he saw that there was only one baby and not twins, he tore the baby right out of the mother’s uterus, threw it into an oven and walked away,” she said. “We...

    Editor's Note: This column was coauthored Bob Morrison. President Reagan went to West Berlin in 1987 and called upon Soviet Communist ruler Mikhail Gorbachev to “Tear Down this Wall.” The President was also working against a near-total blackout of Western media coverage of the Berlin Wall. As former PBS news anchor Robert MacNeil said at the Newseum in 2009, the only time mainstream reporters covered the Berlin Wall was when U.S. Presidents—JFK and Reagan—went there. Then they had to. No wonder President Reagan also endorsed Dr. Bernard Nathanson’s first film of an actual abortion, Silent Scream.Because he believed in the...

    The NFL upheld the 4-game suspension for Tom Brady; certainly we can bar Hillary Clinton from running for office for the next four years—four Americans died in Benghazi. Better yet, perhaps she should be benched in Benghazi. After all, she sat in the comfort of her leather chair in the United States while Americans—working for her—choked and died amid fumes of smoke.

    Sometimes in life you have to stop and admit that you have been wrong about something. I used to be a Democrat so I’ve had to do that many times. It hasn’t always been easy. However, there have been exceptions. Looking back, I can honestly say that changing positions was never easier than when I finally renounced my support for Planned Parenthood. As an atheist college student, I supported Planned Parenthood wholeheartedly. In graduate school, I had a serious girlfriend who was an atheist and a feminist. We supported so-called abortion rights because we needed a back-up plan in case...

    This week the future of Planned Parenthood careened into near elimination for the first real time since its creation. That’s correct. It’s taken way too long, but the organization founded by the racist Margaret Sanger, and who wished to use it for the elimination of black children, is heading towards it’s final end. It has too. The sickness is too public, too harsh, too hellish for America to now ignore. One way to tell is that those supporting its insanity are demonstrating their own lack of reality in the pushback.

    How do you know when a presidential candidate is being deceptive? No, silly, not when his or her lips are moving. Candidates often tell the truth -- like when they say they want your vote or your money. Moving lips are not a reliable clue. So what is? Any statement that envisions an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. _Politicians often act as though the Constitution is a sacred text handed down from heaven, like the Bible. Unlike the Bible, though, they have all sorts of recommendations for improving it. These proposals fall into two general categories: hopeless fantasies and pathetic...

    "The price of a college education should never be the risk of a sexual assault," Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., told a Senate hearing Wednesday. Too many colleges don't treat rape, she observed, as "the violent felony that it actually is." Her solution is the bipartisan Campus Accountability and Safety Act, or CASA, which would require college campuses to designate confidential advisers to victims of sexual assault and establish rules for campus investigations of sexual assaults. Gillibrand means well; there's no question about it. But Congress telling American universities how they should handle campus rape truly is an instance of the...

As part of that process, she decided to summarily fire Police Commissioner Anthony Batts back in the beginning of July.

But even this jaded viewer has been disappointed by what I consider unfair and inadequate news coverage of Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz. When Cruz first entered the race for a Texas senate seat he instantly became a favorite of tea party crowds. That’s not because Cruz was some fringe lunatic or right wing radical. Its because he instantly displayed world class communication skills that he used masterfully to articulate conservatism. Though it may sound like heresy to some, I would posit that Cruz is better at communicating...

    This summer, many people, including friends of mine, adopted the rainbow symbol and the message of human equality after the U.S. Supreme Court took it upon itself to redefine marriage. Actual leaders of “gay rights” organizations universally explain, in open partnership with Planned Parenthood, that their concept of equality likewise promotes “reproductive health,” which itself includes abortion. Thus, leading advocates to redefine marriage cite human “equality,” but believe it can coexist with their own diktat that only certain human beings are “equal,” while others can be torn apart. To rainbow equality leaders, defining some humans as abortable is an obvious...

    One might say that the president was rather presumptuous when he declared, passionately and quite seriously, that if he launched another bid for the White House, he would emerge victorious. But would he? The voters have spoken, it seems, and it doesn't look good, at least according to a new Rasmussen poll. Not surprisingly, almost every self-declared Republican surveyed (93 percent) said they would decline to pull the lever for President Obama if he was on the ballot. (I suppose after six and half years, the public is ready for a change). But far more interesting, perhaps, is the fact...

As two police officers approach her door, they notice a chair overturned in the entryway and bloody footsteps leading back to the rear bedroom. Each officer has his gun drawn, not sure what to expect. When they switch on the light, they witness the worst murder scene of their careers. Ms. Knight is lying on her bed, undressed. Her throat is deeply severed, and her lifeless body, which...

    WASHINGTON - America's sluggish economy still looms over our land like a stationary dark cloud that shows no sign of moving away under the Obama administration.Our nation's second quarter growth rate, as measured by its gross domestic product, came in at a mediocre 2.3 percent -- better than the first three months of this year when the economy barely grew at a sickly 0.6 percent, but nothing to write home about.Many economists were forecasting a stronger economic revival nearer to 3 percent or more. But the economy was still being pulled down by the economic undertow of anti-investment, anti-growth, anti-job...

    Answer: Not much at all, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz knows it. When Chris Matthews attempted to press the DNC chair on whether Bernie Sanders, an avowed Socialist, would get a high-profile speaking slot at the Democratic convention even if he loses the nomination, Wasserman Schultz stammered out an affirmative, which amazed Matthews and prompted him to ask Wasserman Schultz if she saw any significant difference between Democrats and Socialists. Wasserman Schultz tried to duck the question, but provided a very telling answer by doing so (via Newsalert and Mediaite): Things Get Awkward When Matthews Asks DNC Head About Bernie Sanders,...

    "Those who cannot remember the past," the philosopher George Santayana reminded us, "are condemned to repeat it." The young, particularly the young voters of 2016, have no memory of Bill Clinton, and we're all about to be treated to "a little deja vu all over again." The many sexual misadventures of Bill, who was the Bill Cosby of his day, and the excuses and enabling behavior of Hillary Clinton on his behalf, will come not as old news but as the newest of scandals. William Faulkner observed that the past is not dead because it is not even past --...
  • Uber Exposes Politicians as Middlemen, not Leaders

    Politicians are often accused of pandering and rarely wage public fights against things that are popular with their voters. That's what makes the willingness of politicians to take on Uber and the sharing economy all the more puzzling. Why on earth do they want to antagonize the tens of millions of Americans who benefit from the Uber service as consumers and drivers? New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is the latest to get burned trying to stand in the way of the sharing economy. In an interview with CBS2, a local TV station, he offered this explanation: "I think there's...

    Can we simultaneously love our children and betray their generation and generations unborn? Do I have your attention? I hope so, but I can't take credit for that lead. I stole it from Page 1 of Mark Levin's new book, "Plunder and Deceit: Big Government's Exploitation of Young People and the Future." Conservatives have long decried the left's feigned concern "for the children" while it pursues an agenda that is wrecking their future, from Social Security and other budget-busting entitlements to the undermining of our national security. But no one has devoted a book to turning this meme on its...

    It's been a hard time for politicians not named "Trump" to get any attention, but Mike Huckabee managed it. He did it by comparing Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler.At least that's what I gathered from headlines like this one from Gawker: "Mike Huckabee Compares Obama to Hitler" I don't put huge amounts of stock in Gawker headlines (or really any headlines on the Internet), but then I saw that CNN's Wolf Blitzer said Huckabee had "essentially likened [Barack Obama] to Adolf Hitler." National Journal's Ron Fournier went on a tear on Twitter, insisting that Huckabee apologize for comparing Obama to...

    In has been almost a year since the director of the Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System was firedafter numerous reports of mismanagement and malfeasance were exposed. Among them: · Manipulation of veteran patient scheduling data was pervasive, as a national-high of more than 57 percent of employees reported that managers instructed them to change appointment times to artificially hide chronically long waits; · More than 1000 patient X-Rays, some showing malignancies, went missing for months and years; · A pulmonologist was caught twice falsifying more than 1200 patient records, but somehow given a satisfactory review; · An employee took...

    As the presidential campaign heats up, and we head into the first debate among the 16 declared Republican candidates, there is an asymmetry between the two political parties. Republican voters have been seething with discontent toward their party's officeholders and have not become enchanted with any one of 15 more or less conventional politicians who are running. Democratic voters support their officeholders with lockstep loyalty and seem untroubled by the serious flaws of their party's clear frontrunner. This asymmetry helps explain some otherwise puzzling things. One is why polls have continued for several years to show the Republican Party being...

    In November of 2002, Washington Post reporter-editor Bob Woodward unveiled excerpts of his latest book, "Bush at War," and created a big stir by revealing that Fox News boss Roger Ailes had sent a "back-channel message" to the Bush White House shortly after 9/11. He had insisted the president talk tough against the terrorists. The liberal media seized on this report as proof that the Fox News Channel was a tool of George W. Bush (or maybe it was that Bush was a tool of Fox). But all Ailes had done was encourage the president to rally the country after...

    Among the many words you might use to describe me -- some of which would likely hurt my parents' feelings and I'm certain aren't fit for print -- there are a few that I imagine would be fairly uncontroversial. "Mother" being one. "American" being another. You might also call me "healthy." That is, until you saw my morning hip-cracking performance. But a guide to "bias-free language" posted on the University of New Hampshire's website (until it was taken down recently) deems these words and hundreds of others problematic. That's right -- the preferred term is "parenting," not "mothering" or "fathering."...

    If Mike Huckabee was looking for a way to dislodge Donald Trump from the front of the cable news agenda, he found it. But was it wise to use his own blunt language to draw attention to his distaste for the Iran nuclear deal? In describing his fervent belief that the proposed Iran deal is dangerous to Israelis, he said it would “march them to the door of the ovens,” a very provocative reference to Holocaust concentration camps. Reaction was swift. Democrats predictably attacked it, but so did some of his GOP competition, seeking any opportunity to damage a rival....
