    As might be expected in this era of partisan rancor, my new book, Unlikeable: The Problem With Hillary, has prompted criticism by people on the Left. Much of the criticism can be traced back to Hillary’s notorious attack machine and the henchmen who run that machine: Hillary’s book-burning spokesman Philippe Reines (“Killing books has always been a fun pastime,” Reines once bragged).1 Her “Get Smart” secret agent Sidney Blumenthal, an expert in political wet work Her Reich Minister of Propaganda, David Brock, of whom the less said the better.

In the past, the designer has enlisted muscular step dancers to stomp down the runway and featured penises (they peeked out from tunics) as the must have accessory for his fall/ winter 2014 mens collection. His latest runway spectacle was called “Cyclops,” but instead of one-eyed creatures clomping down the runway, he sent models out with what can only be classified as human backpacks. While a trio of gospel singers sang about “Protecting land and how it’s ours to preserve,” models appeared with local gymnasts strapped to...

    When Vladimir Putin sat down with Charlie Rose of “60 Minutes” last Sunday, there was something refreshing about the Russian president’s encounter with the American media. A world leader discussed the Middle East by using terms of Realpolitik such as the “national interest.” There was little if any of the Wilsonian globaloney favored by members of our foreign policy establishment—Democrats and Republicans alike—who seem to share the belief that the only thing missing from the region today is American “leadership.” As Rose recycled all the clichés of the editorial page of the Washington Post (which he even quoted during the...

    Late in the evening of March 17, 1981, a rickety Vietnamese river boat embarked on an ocean journey to Thailand, carrying 27 people in a desperate attempt to find a new life. A day and a half at sea, they were picked up by a Thai fishing boat, which they saw as salvation. Instead, the new vessel brought them a plague of robbery, kidnapping and starvation. When they were set back aboard their own disabled craft several days later, only 25 Vietnamese remained. Two infants -- a boy of five months, a girl of 11 months -- were kept by...

According to the source, Comey also reassured lawmakers his “top people” are handling the investigation. Comey said no resource is being spared and his team is working “24/7” to determine whether classified information was compromised, the source said. No evidence of a breach has been confirmed so far, Fox News is told. Speaking to an annual...

    Josh Earnest on TV now at press briefing. He was asked what the US' response to Russia will be regarding Russia's demand that US aircraft stop flying in Syria. Ernest replied that the US is working to "deconflict" the situation with Russia. Meanwhile, " Secretary of State John Kerry rebuffs Russia’s demand that U.S. warplanes leave Syrian airspace to make way for their own airstrikes — but stops short of raising the ante against Russian President Vladimir Putin, instead calling on him to join coalition talks on how to defeat ISIS." What do you suppose will happen next?

    There are a few major characteristics of health care before Obama Care. 1. It was quasi-private: most was funded by employers. 2. Some was directly paid private insurance. 3. Insurance could only be bought state by state. It could not be bought across state lines. It was non-competitive. 4. Those without insurance were covered by hospitals under Good Samaritan type laws. 5. Hospitals and doctors passed those costs on by increasing costs to insured patients and their insurance companies. 6. Those were passed on to the government by partial deductions by individuals on their tax forms. 7. The rest were...

    On July 14, the Center for Medical Progress began releasing a series of videos about the Planned Parenthood abortion clinics. Reporting for the video project was done undercover and took place over the course of several years. The videos feature executives and staffers at Planned Parenthood and affiliated businesses discussing and demonstrating human organ harvesting and the fetal body part trade. Some of the discussions and footage taken inside abortion clinics is quite graphic. The journalism project immediately went viral, with millions of people watching the videos. But the media have largely struggled to even mention the videos and what...

The festival was only accessible to visitors in the DreamVille on-site camping area after heavy rain hampered the event’s...

Well, no wonder he was a disaster as speaker. He had no clue what the job description was. In just 15 words, everything about his disastrous reign was brought into laser-sharp focus.

    The unfortunate drama surrounding the collision and sinking of the Ady Gil has finally reached a conclusion. An arbitrator last week ruled that the Sea Shepherd acted “wrongful” in their decision to scuttle the ship and not allow for proper salvage efforts. The trimaran, named for its benefactor and owner Ady Gil, a Hollywood TV businessman and animal activist, famously collided on January 7th, 2010 with a Japanese whaling vessel. The event, captured on film for Animal Planet’s “Whale Wars” reality series, drew international attention for both the conservation organization and its anti-whaling mission.
