  • CNBC Does the Impossible, Unites Crowded GOP Field

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, had a standout moment early in Wednesday night's Republican debate when he went after, not other Republicans, but the CNBC moderators, none of whom appeared to have "any intention of voting in a Republican primary." CNBC's Jim Cramer and Rick Santelli later asked questions a conservative would ask, but the event began with questions from moderators John Harwood, Becky Quick and Carl Quintanilla that reinforced Republicans' belief that the network is in the Democrats' pocket. The biggest loser of the night: CNBC's credibility. Harwood launched the debate with a gotcha question for billionaire Donald Trump. Personally,...

    I mean this sincerely. Just shut the hell up. Give it a rest already. We are the United States of America, the greatest, most prosperous, freest, strongest nation in the history of the planet, and all we seem to do is whine. Knock it off. Whining is the new bipartisan common ground. Hillary Clinton whines that she’s the victim of sexism, Donald Trump whines that he’s the victim of bad polling. No one who doesn’t already care intently cares at all. That’s what it’s really about. Whining isn’t to change minds or draw in new support or sympathy; it’s to...

    They call it "bacha bazi," translated as "boy play" -- Afghan militia men throwing boys into sexual slavery. What's worse yet, the U.S. military has turned a blind eye to this obscene practice. The front page of The New York Times carried the headline "US Soldiers Told to Ignore Sexual Abuse of Boys by Afghan Allies." Soldiers who tried to stop this abuse act have been punished by the U.S. military. A photo caption read: "Dan Quinn was relieved of his Special Forces command after a fight with a U.S.-backed militia leader who had a boy as a sex slave...

    Last week, President Obama visited the set of Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show" for the third, and presumably final, time. Obama has set records for the most late-night talk show appearances. He's also appeared alongside YouTube star GloZell Green, in the online series "Between Two Ferns," and Miami radio host DJ Laz, aka "The Pimp with the Limp." Obama has treated the White House like his own personal concert venue, complete with selfie-stick video. After all, as they say, you only live once. Meanwhile, the same week as Obama's final French-kissing session with palace guard Stewart, Obama vowed to push...

    Brittney Griner was a huge college star in women's basketball two years ago. Her dominance of the sport at 6-foot-8 was unquestioned -- she could dunk with ease, and she blocked more shots than anyone else in college basketball history, men or women. Her Baylor squad was the first team in college basketball history, men's or women's, to win 40 games in a single year. Griner was drafted first overall in the WNBA. She also made headlines later in 2013 for coming out as a lesbian. Along with other athletes, like Jason Collins in the NBA, she was lauded by...

    Don't you find it a bit odd that two glaringly contradictory narratives surround Hillary Clinton's bid for the presidency -- inevitability and "she's in trouble"? I've never been convinced, as I've written before, of Hillary's inevitability. In fact, I rarely believe the media or members of the establishment of either party when they anoint any candidate as inevitable. These people tend to live in the Northeastern power corridor but are often oblivious to what the rest of the country is thinking. I attended an influential confab prior to the 2008 primary season and listened to numerous GOP establishment honchos explaining...

    Three more Republicans declare their intention to be presidential nominees, and the leftist media, as if on cue, pounce on their prey like panthers. When venerated neurosurgeon Ben Carson announced his intentions, Washington Post reporter Robert Samuels leaped into action, under a headline reading in part, "Many blacks see a hero's legacy fade." So what has changed? Has Carson been charged with a crime? Did he commit some violent act? Domestic issues? No, it's simply that "for many young African Americans who grew up seeing Carson as the embodiment of black achievement -- a poor inner-city boy who became one...

    The blood wasn’t yet dry in the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo before progressives started with the moral equivalences between Islamofascists and people in the United State who dare defy their orthodoxy of the left. This is how the modern left works – no act, no matter how barbaric, is as bad as opposing their political desire. In many ways, in most ways actually, the American progressive left is radical Islam, only with a slightly smaller body count. Freedom of speech, the “spark” that lit off the attack on the French satirical newspaper, is under assault from the progressive left...

    There was a time not too long ago where you could turn on ESPN or sports talk without being subjected to politics. Unfortunately sports programing has turned into an endless stream of political issues pushed almost exclusively by sports journalists. The NFL is their current target. Ray Rice beat up his then fiancee. Everyone has known that he punched her for over six months, the NFL responded with a 2 game suspension. Then a video of the attack came out. Suddenly the NFL suspended Rice indefinitely and ESPN has decided to have a national conversation about how we need to...

What we know to be true in this story is that two miserable pieces of human debris, Amanda and Jerad Miller entered a Walmart in Las Vegas intent upon committing murder. Seeing that both of them were armed, an honest citizen who had a legal right to carry a gun confronted them and was shot and murdered by Amanda Miller. As is...

    The screeching polarization of American political and cultural life in recent years is exacting a toll. Debate has been debased. Contempt and hatred for those with opposing views is now the norm. While some on the right have criticized their own side -- think of Rick Perry and Jeb Bush challenging immigration opponents, or conservative columnists taking on some talk radio hosts -- liberals have been shamefully silent about the excesses committed by Democrats. That's why it gives me particular pleasure to report that two liberal columnists have recently defied this trend. One is my old friend and sparring partner...

    In the aftermath of the mass shootings in Aurora, Colo.; Newtown, Conn.; Tucson, Ariz.; Virginia Tech; the Washington Navy Yard; and sadly, other locales, conventional wisdom held that the epidemic of mass shootings was a problem of gun control. I wrote columns attempting to draw attention to the mental health system in America that so wrongheadedly fails to treat the dangerous mentally ill. Now, at last, the mental health angle on mass shootings has become conventional wisdom -- just in time, perhaps, to be wrong again. "Fort Hood shooter had mental problems" headlined USA Today.

Oh, the irony of this Beltway liberal's devoting 2,225 words to decrying conservatives for destroying something that liberals have largely been in charge of for years -- government and its growth. Kaiser sounds a lot like Chris Matthews, who often mourns for the days when politics was fun -- as if the process of governing is the only thing that matters. For...

Even if you think that's too strong, it's undeniable that a trace of bellicosity has been important to what the professionals like to call his "brand." Still, he shouldn't have said what he did in that radio interview. However strongly he may feel about those who disagree, and certainly he has his reasons for feeling aggrieved, he shouldn't have said that his opponents "have no place" in his state. It's understandable, considering the intemperance and intolerance he demonstrated, why...

    The reporting on China's commemoration of the 120th birthday of Mao Zedong all seemed to come from the same angle. Festivities were "understated" (AP). Events were "scaled back" (Reuters). The following headline, which ran on the Fox News website over the AP story, is typical: "China marks Mao's 120th birthday with low-key celebrations." The story opens: "China's leaders bowed three times before a statue of Mao Zedong on the 120th anniversary of his birth Thursday in carefully controlled celebrations that also sought to uphold the market-style reforms that he would have opposed." Forget for now the "market-style reforms." Only...

And let's be clear, the new man at the helm, Jeff Zucker, formerly of NBC is not the man to blame for the network's precarious position. He has tried many a new move and likely will attempt more as this once king-of-cable news continues to attempt to find its...

    The question many on the left are asking as they witness the Obama administration flail in response to HealthCare.gov's debut disaster is: How could this happen? Obama is so brilliant, so capable and so wise. How could he bungle his signature initiative? He isn't, but even if he were, it wouldn't make a particle of difference. One of the central delusions of progressives is that government is efficient and effective and that complex human societies are amenable to centralized control and direction. We on the right presume government ineptitude. The Washington Post reports today, for example, that the federal employee...

To clarify, that's some 7 to 11 million Americans. The administration, NBC News said, had known all of this since 2010.

Let's look at it. First, weaken the black family, but don't blame it on individual choices. You have to preach that today's weak black family is a legacy of slavery, Jim Crow and racism. The truth is that black female-headed households were just 18 percent of households in 1950, as opposed to about 68 percent today. In fact, from 1890 to 1940,...

    Could the boondoggle we call "Obamacare" be a bigger disaster? Is there any better example of the arrogance, incompetence and remorselessness of top-down central planning? The very name of the law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, is a deceptive euphemism, as it neither protects patients nor makes health care more affordable. The law was born in hell. The premises upon which the bill was based, the promises its proponents made and the corruption and high-handedness in its legislative process tainted it from the outset.

This week, the president's economic cheerleading squad was back on the field again, applauding new data showing housing prices hitting the highest level in five years, rising consumer confidence and a bullish stock market rally that pushed the Dow to record highs. Once again, the news media's euphoria was splashed across the front pages of the nation's newspapers and led the TV nightly news shows....

    NPRs popular Wait Wait, Dont Tell Me trivia show gets its fair share of big name political guests (Bill Clinton called in once, for example), but host Peter Sagal knows that theres a specific shortage hed like to fill: Republicans. Asked by Vulture, Is there a dream guest for you? Someone youve been trying to get that you think you never will? Sagal responded, I would love to get more Republicans on the show. "One of the things I really envy about Jon Stewart is how many times hes able to get Republicans on his show. And thats to his...

    It doesnt matter whether youre on the far left, far right or somewhere in the middle, there is absolutely no denying the rise of the tea party has altered Americas political landscape. And the elite media is making clear, in no uncertain terms, they despise this type of change. Last week, Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) voted against the Schumer-Toomey gun bill because her constituents were opposed to the bill. On MSNBCs Morning Joe, former lawmaker Joe Scarborough and his sidekick Mika Brzezinski lit into her: MIKA: She is defending her vote saying her office was flooded with calls from constituents...

    On Wednesday, Mother Jones ran an article making a shocking claim: more Americans have been killed by conservative terrorists than by Islamic terrorists since September 11, 2001. While America has been fixated on the threat of Islamic terrorism for more than a decade, all but a few domestic terror plots have failed, the article explained. Between September 11, 2001, and the end of 2012, there were no successful bomb plots by jihadist terrorists in the United States . [R]ight-wing extremists killed 29 people during those 11 years.But is it true?The Mother Jones piece is based on a study by the...

    "Esquire's Charles P. Pierce wrote in an online post on the magazine's website that we should not jump to conclusions and blame foreign terrorists, then blames it on right-wing domestic terrorists. He stated "remember that this is the official Patriots Day holiday in Massachusetts, celebrating the Battles at Lexington and Concord, and that the actual date (April 19) was of some significance to, among other people, Tim McVeigh, because he fancied himself a waterer of the tree of liberty and the like." CNN's Peter Bergen stated that the bomb type could point to right-wing domestic terrorists as well. "If it...

    On the Monday broadcast of Current TV's "The War Room" network host Cenk Uygur observed Americans would not be as outraged if the Boston bomber turns out to be a "right-wing white guy" instead of a Muslim terrorist. "Now, if it's a right-wing white guy, those same exact people will turn around and say, 'Well, look, let's not over blow this. I mean it's just one crazy guy, he doesn't affect anything else. It has no other implications, let's just all calm down," Uygur said. Michael Shure, the host of "The War Room," said Cenk could be totally wrong about...

    When the massacre in Newtown occurred, it received wall-to-wall coverage, as well it should have. Wed never seen anything like this before a mentally ill gunman shooting tiny children and their teachers in an elementary school. It shocked the senses and dominated the national conversation as well it should have. And aside from opportunistic leftists, such as Michael Moore and Piers Morgan, the original coverage leaned toward what caused the murderer to act and how such mental illness might be addressed in the future. But just as a serious and productive conversation was beginning, the political agenda...

    The Los Angeles Times is up for sale, and there are super-wealthy conservative bidders. Get the popcorn out and watch the liberals squeal. The hilarious kickoff came when two leftist collectives -- the Daily Kos website and the California-based Courage Campaign Institute -- set out to buy an ad in the LA Times to protest the Koch brothers pondering a bid. I kid you not, the ad began: "WE NEED NEWS, NOT MORE SPIN." This would assume that today's Los Angeles Times -- which just endorsed Obama's re-election -- is an oasis of objectivity in a desert of media bias....

    File this in the overflowing cabinet labeled: No Wonder the Mainstream Media Is Dying. On Tuesday, the Associated Press announced that it is banishing the phrase "illegal immigrant" from its famous stylebook. The world's largest newsgathering outlet now advises reporters that "illegal" will "only refer to an action, not a person." AP directs writers not to use the terms "illegal alien, an illegal, illegals or undocumented" anymore, except "in direct quotations." It won't be long before illegal border crossers, illegal visa overstayers, illegal deportation evaders, document fraudsters and illegal alien traffickers are all referred to as "our fellow Americans." Without...

    The liberal media know an abortion outrage when they hear it. Sadly, they only seem to hear them from the mouths of Republican candidates, and it only takes a statement to outrage the press. Can't they find a single abortion outrage inside an abortion clinic? Such is their radicalism that nothing, absolutely nothing regarding this gruesome procedure raises their eyebrows, never mind their ire. One emerging story proves the degree to which our "objective" media's views on abortion are dogmatic and extreme. Abortionist Kermit Gosnell is on trial in Philadelphia, and not just for killing babies outside the womb,...

    Our left-wing media's somber, mourning coverage of Venezuelan despot Hugo Chavez once again demonstrates the double standard journalists reserve for dictators. Seven years ago, the left's greatest South American hate object, Augusto Pinochet, passed away. Never mind how he used free-market reforms to modernize Chile. Never mind that after 15 years of rule, he allowed a national plebiscite to vote against him, and he stepped down peacefully. The left-wing outrage pulsed on the front pages. The Washington Post headline for Pinochet in 2006 was "A Dictator's Dark Legacy." Reporters Monte Reel and J.Y. Smith stated his government "murdered and tortured...

    For years, conservatives have been split on whether President Barack Obama is incompetent or whether he is malicious. Mitt Romney ably made the argument for incompetence during the 2012 election cycle, when he stated that President Obama was. Romney's view symbolized the majority view on the issue. Until now. With the advent of sequestration, it is now clear that President Obama is willing to throw Americans under the bus in pursuit of his vision of a transformed America. He is more than content to break eggs to make his utopian omelet. That uncomfortable reality became clear during the sequestration debate...

    If Santa Claus had a State of the Union speech, it would sound much like President Obamas latest. In it, Obama detailed a Christmas list of investments on Tuesday night that he wants government to make. In all, he included 11 separate versions of the term invest to indicate government spending your tax dollars. The solution to all that spending was, of course, more taxes when Republicans have already said no new taxes. Naturally, the media loved it. MSNBCs Ed Schultz called it a stunning speech tonight. CNNs Jessica Yellin said Obama was relaxed and confident. Politicos summary was...
