    Via Grabien, skip to 4:45 of the clip below for the key bit. I naively thought we were (mostly) done with “climate of hate” stupidity after the left went all-in on that narrative to try to explain the Gabby Giffords shooting, only to find that Jared Loughner was an incoherent delusional crank. For instance, despite the fact that Dylann Roof’s motives for perpetrating the Charleston massacre were more overtly political than Loughner’s, the aftermath of that attack focused not so much on “inflammatory rhetoric” by the left’s enemies on the right as on the Confederate battle flag specifically, more an...

    In one of the more egregious actions of his lackluster time in office, Barack Obama has called for Turkey to close their borders with Syria. Turkey’s response… Uh, what about the U.S. border with Mexico? How’s that going? From Daily Caller via WZ: President Barack Obama wants Turkey to close its 60-mile-long border with Syria to end the influx of new Islamic State fighters pouring into Syria and Iraq. If Turkey acquiesces to Obama’s demands, no entry points will remain between the two countries. The entire border is 550 miles long, The Wall Street Journal reports. But a Turkish official...

    A chapel sermon on love left a student at Oklahoma Wesleyan University feeling "offended" and "victimized." But instead of capitulating to the offended young scholar, OWU President Everett Piper pushed back with a blistering rebuke of what he called "self-absorbed and narcissistic" students. "This is not a day care. This is a university," he wrote in a blog that has since gone viral. Back home in Tennessee, we call that a "Come to Jesus" moment. "Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic," he wrote. "Any time their feelings are hurt, they are victims! Anyone...

    I've been blessed to contribute and participate in our country's oil and gas renaissance, which has helped to lower energy prices. It is rewarding to know this benefits the poor and middle class the most, facilitating job creation while creating more discretionary income. At my roots I'm a geoscientist, having studied geology and geophysics at the University of Texas. Part of my job is modeling what's under the surface in an attempt to predict where the oil and gas deposits are. In my profession I'm continually frustrated by the lack of knowledge and flagrant misinformation being perpetuated about the...

    I intend the title question as a genuine one; perhaps Bernie Sanders could in good faith take the oath of office to be President, which requires that he swear to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." After all, the oath he has already sworn multiple times as a Congressman and Senator to "support and defend the Constitution" against its enemies is a quite similar duty (although it may be the additional and unconditional obligation to "preserve” our Constitution a President undertakes requires greater adherence to the Constitution as it is, rather than how one might wish...

"We all have a huge investment in making sure our children, our grandchildren are able to enjoy prosperity, and that's dependent on a planet that accommodates us."President Obama was speaking in anticipation of COP21 the next big global climate change conference, starting November 30 in Paris, where world leaders will soon attempt to set global carbon dioxide emissions reduction targets.

    Let’s begin with a dose of common sense. There is a fundamental difference between mass movements dedicated to peaceful cultural and political persuasion and mass movements dedicated to violence. America is blessed by the former while the rest of the world is often plagued by the latter. Yet even the most peaceful movements can sometimes attract an evil fringe, a tiny handful of adherents who cross the bright line between speech and violence. Take, for example, environmentalism. America has long been awash in apocalyptic climate-change rhetoric. Leading Democrats describe carbon emissions as a “national-security threat,” and blame them for everything...

    People who want to buy Christmas gifts, without having to confront the crowds at the local shopping mall (or shopping maul) can take a load off their feet by buying books or movies on the Internet, while sitting in the comfort of their own homes. In addition to old standbys like gorgeous coffee table books of Ansel Adams' scenic photographs or the collected works of Shakespeare -- or of "Calvin and Hobbes" comics -- there are also many thought-provoking books on current events or on history. People who already seem to have everything may not have DVDs of the latest...

    Storm trooper tactics by bands of college students making ideological demands across the country, and immediate preemptive surrender by college administrators -- such as at the University of Missouri recently -- bring back memories of the 1960s, for those of us old enough to remember what it was like being there, and seeing first-hand how painful events unfolded. At Harvard, back in 1969, students seized control of the administration building and began releasing to the media information from confidential personnel files of professors. But, when university president Nathan Pusey called in the police to evict the students, the faculty turned...

    When it comes to diversity in the slates of candidates offered by each party this season, the scales are decidedly tipped to one side. The GOP field includes not only both genders, but an African American, a couple of guys of Cuban descent and, until very recently, one whose parents came from India. They range in age from the well seasoned to those less than a decade past the constitutional minimum. For their part, the Democrats are offering something different. The field is as lily white as fresh sheets at a hotel, with the only two in serious contention both...

    Never let a day go by without learning something new if you can. For instance, I glanced through the news this morning and discovered something amazing: Hillary Clinton wanted to be an astronaut. This came as a bit of a shock, because from all the previous reporting I’d noticed regarding the presumptive Democrat nominee’s childhood dreams, I thought she wanted to be a Marine. (Before The Man crushed her hopes and dreams because she was a girl, that is.) But as it turns out, before she longed to storm the beaches at Iwo Jima, the future First Lady wanted to...

    After she joined Donald Trump's real estate business, Louise Sunshine struggled to maintain a steady weight while managing her new career alongside the busy schedules of three young children. Trump must have noticed, Sun­shine said. She recalled that he kept an unflattering photograph of her in a drawer - a "fat picture," as she called it - that he would pull out when she did something he didn't like. It was "a reminder that I wasn't perfect," said Sunshine, who worked with Trump for 15 years starting in the mid-1970s when he set about remaking Manhattan's skyline. "He just is...

    Give Hillary this much credit — in this case, she acted more like a leader than Barack Obama. That’s not a high bar to clear, especially in Obama’s second term. At the beginning of that second term, Hillary urged Obama to get serious about his oft-stated and unpopular goal of closing down the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, stressing that “we need a White House lead” on the issue. The Huffington Post’s Ryan J. Reilly got the memo in a FOIA request: Weeks before she stepped down as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton wrote a memo urging President Barack Obama...

    The U.S. health care system is unsustainable but it could be dramatically improved with more efficient care of our sickest patients. Medical spending is rising at twice the rate of income growth. Medical prices are rising at three times the rate of consumer inflation. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was sold to the American people as a means to fix those problems and make health care affordable. The vehicle to achieve this is, implausibly, a requirement that we all purchase overpriced health insurance. In addition to stipulating the benefit package Americans are allowed to have, ACA regulations also force insurers...

    America's national obsession with raising our "educational attainment" level leads politicians and bureaucrats to focus on the silliest of things. Lately, that has been college accreditation. On November 6, the U.S. Department of Education put out a press release declaring "a sense of urgency about the need for significant improvement in both the rigor and flexibility of accreditation." "Accreditation" and "urgency" are words that may have never before appeared in the same sentence. Aside from a few federal bureaucrats and the people who work in the accrediting agencies themselves, almost no one gives any thought to college accreditation. Oh yes-college...

    Conservatives are coming together to rebut a bogus attack on Senator Ted Cruz launched by a shadowy Super PAC aligned with establishment Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio. Rubio and his Big Money allies have attacked Cruz for voting for the USA Freedom Act, when 67 senators were in favor of the measure and 32 against, with many of those in opposition saying the bill did not go far enough to protect privacy and curtail federal snooping into the communications of innocent American citizens. Rubio's criticism of Cruz puts him (once again) on the same side as establishment Republican Senate Majority...

    Well, that didn't take long. Within hours of the Colorado shootings, abortion-choice advocates were placing blame squarely on the shoulders of pro-lifers. Apparently, we're guilty of "violent" rhetoric; that is, claiming that abortion intentionally kills an innocent human being and that rhetoric is fueling acts of terror against abortion providers. "Do we really think that there are no consequences to claiming that abortion is murder," writes Jessica Valentiin The Guardian. "Can we stop pretending that pro-life lies don't have an effect.

You cannot have a peaceful society without justice an unjust society teeters on the edge of chaos, held in place only by the force deployed by the elite at its head. But thanks to the mindless quest for power by liberals, who heedlessly sacrifice justice for short term advantage, we are fundamentally transforming from a just society into something very different and very dangerous.A just society is one in which outcomes tend toward those commonly understood to...

    It's clear that the mainstream media is trying to destroy the noble and godly Donald Trump by absolutely smearing him and lying their mendacious lies about this statement that 100 African-American pastors were going to endorse el Trumpo, our savior and lord: ... I bet Trump will show up on Monday with a THOUSAND Black Pastors to endorse him and then the media will look sooooo stupid!! Hahahahah!!

    Under the Affordable Care Act, young adults are allowed to stay on their parents' health insurance up to age 26. Since people generally like the idea of helping their own children avoid sickness and financial ruin, this has been one of the law's more popular features. But how exactly has the rule changed life for American twentysomethings? According to one new study, it seems to have given them a bit more leeway to bum around and find themselves - which is just about what you'd expect to happen when getting a job isn't a prerequisite for getting insurance. In a...

    Appearing on November 29th Fox News Sunday, 2016 Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina slammed President Barack Obama and his allies as “delusional” for continually pushing the notion that climate change is a chief national security threat for the United States and the world at-large.  Fiorina was asked about the issue by host Chris Wallace in context of this upcoming week’s United Nations climate change summit in Paris and the argument that addressing climate change makes the world safer and rebukes Islamic terrorists.

    A significant majority of the country recently spoke up in a NY Times/CBS poll saying that they had essentially given up hope that the President was going to figure out what to do about the JV Team. These perceptions were likely buttressed a bit when the White House informed us that ISIS was largely “contained” just hours before they lit up Paris like a pinball machine. So maybe we need a new approach? Anonymous apparently declared war on the terrorists recently, though aside from ruining their credit rating I’m not sure exactly what they’re going to accomplish. But lo and...

    Never mind the fact that she had a scraggly beard and carried herself as a sort of haggard version of the Uni-bomber, the woman who shot up Planned Parenthood is a very progressive progressive. So progressive that she must have felt completely abused when the snobs at Planned Parenthood Colorado Springs a place that knows a ton about how to kill innocent people refused to perform an abortion on her so she went nuts. Of course thats all conjecture, just like President Obama was expressing when talking about, "the man being armed with an assault weapon" and later "a weapon...

    The other evening in New York when Secretary of State John Kerry came to talk about President Barack Obama's foreign policy, everyone thought he had come to praise it. An hour and 6000 words later, it was clear that he had come to bury it. The expected encomium became an unintended obituary. Kerry started by building an edifice of excuses for what he knew, and didn't want to admit, was failure on a grand scale. To heighten his profile, Kerry told the audience that he had just had lunch with Henry Kissinger who had admitted that the world was more...

    "There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad," Winston Smith clandestinely wrote in his diary. Smith, the protagonist in George Orwell's classic dystopian novel, 1984, fought against a totalitarian state, against Big Brother. In our own maddening, modern, non-fiction world, you are not insane if you cling to truth. But you might feel awfully alone. Even if you practice yoga. What? Yes, yoga. The stretching exercise/meditation practice that is said to help bring spiritual peace to its practitioners is under assault, at least in Canada....

    An example of an extremely significant, decidedly unintended result of a relatively tiny event can be nightmarish. This one is, at least for me. It concerns the role I played in getting George W. Bush elected president in 2000. That I was the butterfly whose fluttering cascaded into Bush's election still pains me. I had written an op-ed for the New York Times titled "We're Measuring Bacteria with a Yardstick" in which I argued that the vote in Florida had been so close that the gross apparatus of the state's electoral system was incapable of discerning the difference between the...

    There is a heated debate (no pun intended) regarding our environment and global warming. While that may be an important issue, in my opinion what is more important is how people act in public and their regard for others in a public setting. This became evident again when I attended Jewish High Holiday services. After some major changes at my synagogue where I have been a member for 29 years, we were betwixt and between. We finally decided to attend services led by Dennis Prager and organized by his wife Susan. Mr. Prager is as knowledgeable about Jewish scripture as...

    I understand the tremendous popularity of Donald Trump in America in 2015. He is a larger than life reality TV star; he is incredibly rich and not beholden to anyone; he is fearless and speaks his mind; he articulates the frustrations and anger of millions of his countrymen; he gives the impression that he can fix our economy and will put an end to illegal immigration; he is not a Washington insider; he could be a strong leader who could face down our global enemies; he can even be winsome and self-effacing at times. Yes, I do understand all this...

    A federal program, once launched, is impossible to kill. It doesn't matter if the scheme wastes money. It doesn't matter if the program doesn't work. It doesn't even matter if the program does the very opposite of what it is supposed to do. Every government program enters the world with an army of fairy godmothers prepared to fend off any effort to cut the cord -- hence the staying power of ethanol. When President George W. Bush signed legislation to expand a federal requirement to blend gasoline with ethanol in 2007, he could claim with some credibility that he was...
