    I’ve made it clear that I would not trust Ben Carson with the keys to the Oval Office, and I am now of the opinion I wouldn’t trust him with the keys to a Cabinet post, either. (See “Dr. Ben Carson for president: Not so fast,” Feb. 6, 2014.) Carson is a without question one of the most gifted doctors in the history of medicine – but beyond that, he is either naďve, clueless, or he secretly supports an agenda or aspects thereof that have contributed to the racial divide in America. And as you will see, his disagreeable heterodoxy...

    Ben Carson alleged in an interview with Fox News Wednesday that Planned Parenthood puts most of its clinics in black neighborhoods to "control the population" and that its founder, Margaret Sanger, "was not particularly enamored with black people." Planned Parenthood has been a target on the campaign trail after a series of sting videos was released alleging the organization illegally profits from selling aborted fetal tissue. Carson, a famed neurosurgeon turned Republican presidential candidate, has been a vocal opponent of the group. He was also in the news this week after reports surfaced that he once used aborted fetal tissue...

    Voters who disagree with the Democratic party’s platform are only a few Confederate flag sightings away from donning a hood and burning some crosses, apparently. Is this why the U.S. is “essentially a nation of cowards” when it comes to discussing race, as former Attorney General Eric Holder famously said?

    Witnesses say the white gunman who killed nine people at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., was quite vocal about his motives: He wanted to kill black people. Sylvia Johnson, whose cousin the Rev. Clementa Pinckney was one of three ministers killed in the church, said a survivor of the horror told her the shooter muttered, "I have to do it. You rape our women and you're taking over our country. And you have to go."

    Here is what you need to know now as Greece enters a pivotal week in its testy relationship with the Eurozone: 1. Greece’s most immediate – as in first thing Monday morning – source of danger is its banking system. To compensate for accelerated deposit flight, the European Central Bank injected additional emergency funding on Friday to allow the banks to open on Monday. With a lot more needed, the ECB will grow more hesitant to pump in new money unless the Greek government secures an agreement with its European partners and the institutions through which they operate (the European...

    When faux black Rachel Dolezal was offered a reality show, I thought: that’s it, this farce is now complete; it perfectly encapsulates our tawdry age of moonbattery run amok. Then when we learned of a Rachel Dolezal sex tape, I thought: okay, it wasn’t complete before, but now it is. Yet the story still wasn’t finished. Rachel Dolezal had not yet proclaimed herself to be a polysexual pervert: Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP President accused of misrepresenting her race and masquerading as a black woman, revealed she is bisexual in an interview with NBC Nightly News. “I’m bisexual. And so,...

    Why was America so shocked by homegirl hoaxer Rachel Dolezal? The spray-tanned con artist, who resigned this week as head of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of (Artificially) Colored People, is the inevitable outcome of academia's cult of manufactured victimhood. College campuses have been grooming a cadre of professional minority fakers and fraudsters for decades. The notorious pretendians Ward Churchill and Elizabeth Warren faked their Native American status to bolster their faculty credentials at the University of Colorado and Harvard, respectively. It was a mutually beneficial racket for all poseur parties involved. Churchill and Warren...

    Someday, we’ll recall these as the days of struggle, comrades, in pursuit of redistribution of heritage. After all, why should the Irish get all the blarney, or the Italians all the pasta? And don’t even get me started on the Swiss. On the other hand, if Rachel Dolezal’s motivation came from a deep-seated need to appropriate the claimed victimhood of others, maybe she no longer needs to fake her ethnicity any longer, since she’s become almost universally rejected for her own fakery. Spokane’s city council unanimously decided to end Dolezal’s association with the city, although the action comes in response...
