  • Juan Williams: ‘I Am Baffled’ By Push To Arm Marines In Recruiting Centers

    On July 17–the day after Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez allegedly opened fire on a recruiting center and then a reserve center, gunning down four US Marines–Fox News’ Juan Williams said he is “baffled” by the push to end gun free zones in military recruiting centers. He said the center which was targeted is in a “strip mall” and that changing the gun-free policy would mean people would be walking around with guns, which could lead to “workplace violence.” He also suggested it could create a situation where a simple “dispute in the parking lot” could escalate into armed confrontation.

    He's also so often egregiously wrong, perhaps never more so than in his Monday column at the Hill. Williams is astonished that a recent poll, consistent with others, shows that over two-thirds of blacks support a photo identification requirement for voting. In the process, he cited perhaps the dumbest statistic I've ever seen on the topic, misrepresented a 2013 Supreme Court decision, and failed to understand that blacks may end up being most adversely affected if voter fraud ever become widespread.

    President Barack Obama has the support of at least one commentator when it comes to his command of the U.S. military these days.Fox News and The Hill commentator Juan Williams lauded the commander-in-chief on Friday’s episode of the cable network’s “The Five,” much to the surprise of the panel’s four other hosts. “I think he does, are you kidding?” Williams said. “When it comes to our military, I don’t think there’s any president who’s expressed himself better than President Obama in terms of support of our military.” Williams was responding to a statement by fill-in host and actress Stacey Dash, who claimed that Obama had failed...

    The same day the White House announced that Islamic State terrorists’ only remaining American hostage was killed, President Barack Obama uttered a phrase that means “You only live once.” The president was clowning around for a BuzzFeed video on Obamacare when he said, “YOLO,” a light-hearted moment that Fox News anchor Heather Childers called inappropriate and insensitive considering its timing. “The president says, ‘YOLO, man!’ And for people at home who may not know what that stands for, YOLO stands for ‘you only live once,’” Childers said on Friday’s show, talking specifically to liberal panelist Juan Williams. “Well you know...

    The passionate stand by Americans across the country in protesting the failure of grand juries to indict policemen for killing two unarmed people – both poor, black men – is revving up the demand for a political response from Democrats in Washington. Young people of all colors, but mostly blacks, Hispanics and immigrants, are the primary source of that pressure. Their political agenda extends beyond outrage over the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and Eric Garner in New York. They also want Democrats in Congress to get busy defending ObamaCare. But their rising political engagement is best seen...

    Where is the black leadership now that a grand jury has decided not to indict the police officer that killed Michael Brown? Where is Al Sharpton? He advertises himself as a spokesman for the best interests of black America. But he is absent. Where is Jesse Jackson, another popular media personality who says he speaks for black America? He’s missing in action, too. It breaks my heart to see televised images of violence from Ferguson, Missouri juxtaposed next to President Obama, the first black president. The president represents black power beyond anyone’s imagination just a few years ago. President Obama...

    Fox News liberal commentator Juan Williams thinks conservatives are making “much ado about nothing” over MIT professor Jonathan Gruber‘s controversial remarks that the Affordable Care Act passed only because of a “lack of transparency” and “the stupidity of the American voter.” Although he understood how the comments could be “insulting,” Williams insisted that all laws require some sort of clever packaging much like how corporations market products. When Fox News Sunday host asked Williams if he thought the Gruber comments presented “nothing new” for the Obamacare debate, the former NPR reporter replied in the affirmative: “I would say it’s much...

    Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel (R-Ky.) are now in position to end the Tea Party’s death grip on the Republican Party’s political future. Last week, Boehner and McConnell faced down the Tea Party’s threat to cripple the government when they supported raising the nation’s debt ceiling. That move prevented GOP political suicide. If the nation’s credit rating, stocks and the recovery went down the sewer because of Republicans’ refusal to raise the debt ceiling, the GOP’s chances in the midterm elections would have been severely damaged. Having successfully defied the Tea Party on the debt...

Four months ago a jury acquitted Zimmerman of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. There was not enough evidence to show that Zimmerman was not acting in self-defense. But now what we are seeing is a pattern emerging showing Zimmerman as a...

The poetry of Aug. 28, 1963, is best on view when Martin Luther King Jr. went off his speech script and started using a musical, chanting reprise—"I have a dream." The transforming insight born of...

    In a case of apparent plagiarism, Fox News pundit Juan Williams lifted — sometimes word for word — from a Center for American Progress report, without ever attributing the information, for a column he wrote last month for The Hill newspaper. Almost two weeks after publication, the column was quietly revised online, with many of the sections rewritten or put in quotation marks, and this time citing the CAP report. It also included an editor’s note that read: “This column was revised on March 2, 2013, to include previously-omitted attribution to the Center for American Progress.” But that editor’s note...

    Fox News political analyst and “Special Report” panelist Juan Williams said in an interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas that mainstream media outlets “stab” and “kill” dissenting voices. Williams was fired from National Public Radio in 2010 after saying he sometimes gets “nervous” when seated on an airplane with Muslims, while making a broader point about the importance of religious tolerance. “I always thought it was the Archie Bunkers of the world, the right wingers of world, who were more resistant and more closed-minded about hearing the other side,” he said. “In fact, what I have learned is, in...

    Imagine if President George W. Bush or senior members of his administration asserted that they had the power to assassinate any person, including American citizens on American soil, because they merely suspected them of being involved in a terrorist plot. Now, imagine that they went a step further and claimed that this broad new power was not subject to any oversight by Congress or the judiciary or international law. A lot of left-wingers would be apoplectic. And they would be right. Sadly, a Democratic president, Barack Obama, and senior national security officials in his administration appear to be wielding just...

    The truth is, the Tea Party anger that boiled over in response to the President Obama’s healthcare plan had been brewing for years due to conservative disappointment with George W. Bush’s policies. Bush created record-breaking deficits, embraced Congressional earmarks, gained passage of an enormous expansion of Medicare entitlements without funding it, nominated Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, and backed McCain-Kennedy comprehensive immigration reform. Principled conservatives like Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity spoke out against the direction of the party, to their credit. Conservatives must be careful not to abandon their principles out of blind hated for President Obama....

  • John Kerry Is A 'Corporate Wife'

    Continuing with their reelection theme of warring on women, Juan Williams last night remarked that Ann Romney "looked like a corporate wife." Ann Romney has been attacked relentlessly by the left because her husband is successful. She was told that she doesn't work, she was attacked for wearing clothes less expensive than those worn by Michelle Obama; she isn't attacked for her policy or her husband's, rather she's attacked for being an outspoken Republican woman. By Juan Williams' logic, if Ann Romney looks like a "corporate wife," so does John Kerry. Kerry has his fortune because his wife's late husband...

    Thumper the Rabbit's parents always taught him, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all." If the left's self-appointed Omniscient Diviners of True Meaning have their way, conservatives in the public square won't be left with anything at all to say. Ever. It's a treacherous business exercising your freedom of speech in the age of Obama. As a public service, I present to you: "The 2012 Condensed Liberal Handbook of Racial Code Words."

    (CNSNews.com) - As part of its Tuesday night convention coverage, Fox News assembled a panel of political analysts to discuss Ann Romney's speech. Charles Krauthammer called it a "triumph," and Brit Hume said it was "the single most effective political speech I’ve ever heard given by a political wife." But their fellow panelist Juan Williams -- a Democrat -- panned Mrs. Romney's effort to connect with women, describing her as a "corporate wife" whose claim to understand the struggles of American women fell flat. "Ann Romney ... looked to me like a corporate wife. The stories she told about struggles...
