    Prof. Cornel West, who had previously called Mr. Obama the first “niggerized” president and “a person who is afraid and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy,” has endorsed Mr. Sanders and introduced him at rallies in South Carolina. “I love Brother Bernie,” Mr. West said last year. “He tells the truth about Wall Street. He really does.” About Mrs. Clinton, he said earlier this year that “the word integrity is not the first thing that comes to mind.”

    "What will you tell the President when you see him?" was my daughter Eva's first reaction when I told her I'd been invited to the White House Channukah party (Actually, it was her second reaction. Her first was, "Take me!"). Kids are innocent that way. They don't realize that when you have over a hundred people crowding the leader of the free world, it's not so easy to get in a word edgewise. But I got lucky. It's not what I told the President that mattered, it's what I heard him say when few people were paying attention. After the...
  • Rand Paul: Partisan Primaries Are Biggest Obstacle to Attracting Nonpartisan Voters

    Much has been said this month, both by and about the junior Republican senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul. During last weeks appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher, the late-night talk show host broached the possibility of supporting Paul in a 2016 presidential run. Maher said: I know youre thinking of running for President and in some states I know you can get Independents like me. Ive said that. I am available to the Rand Paul campaign As part of a strategy to reach outside of typical Republican circles, Paul did another interview with Salon.coms Joel Keller, which was published...

    UPDATE: This story has been updated to reflect the correct location of the meeting between Mr. Cruz and Mr. Adelson, as well as a different characterization of the results of that meeting. Jewish life in New York is dominated by ritual. Holidays. A pastrami reuben on a hero at Katzs. The reading of holy books in cycles that take a year (the Torah) or seven and a half years (the Talmud). And just as reliably, theres the ritual of presidential candidates sniffing around for dough right after the midterm elections. That last one got going in earnest yesterday and today,...

    So Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.), who likes to tie women up and leave them in a creek is complaining that women are entirely too sensitive these days, that they cant take a joke. As he told the National Review There are people now who hesitate to tell a joke to a woman in the workplace, any kind of joke, because it could be interpreted incorrectly. I dont. Im very cautious.

    The Star Democrat (Maryland) ^ | June 22, 2012 | Esther Cepeda
    If you believe the headlines, President Barack Obama has gotten back into the good graces of Latino voters by deferring the deportation of tens of thousands of young people. But any reasonable voter who actually thinks this is a meaningful and substantive move by Obama is, frankly, a chump. . . . . . . . . . Obama has told Hispanic audiences time and again that he feels "very strongly" about immigration reform. But, in fact, he has never spent much of his limited political capital on it.

    In 1999, Christopher Hitchens penned an acid reflection on the presidency of Bill Clinton, titled No One Left to Lie To. The verdict on the presidency of Barack Obama, at least during this campaign season, might be No One Left to Pander To. In three and a half years, weve gone from the audacity of hope to the shameless palm grease. Shaken by the polls, and unable to tout his accomplishments in office, the president has instead targeted giveaways to particular constituencies of the Democratic party. Weve gone from soaring to squalid. Women got free contraceptives and the invitation to...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) aims to have his alternative to the DREAM Act proposal on paper in the next few weeks and passed by the end of the summer. "Our goal is to pass something this summer in time for kids who plan to go to school this fall," Rubio press secretary Alex Conant said Monday. Rubio's proposal would provide non-immigrant visas to illegal immigrants' children who attend college or serve in the military. "So just like lots of people come to the United States on work visas or on student visas or tourism visas or whatever, this would be...

    The American Thinker ^ | 6/24/2011 | Jeffrey Folks
    On Thursday the President announced that he would release 30 million barrels of oil from the nation's Strategic Petroleum Reserve. The immediate effect on world markets was to knock the oil price down by over $4 a barrel. But many experts question the wisdom -- and the timing -- of the move. Clearly, the timing of the withdrawal was politically motivated. Any reduction in the price of gas at the pump is going to be popular, especially with Obama's political base and with independents who are key to his reelection. The problem is that, like every other form of stimulus...

A conflict in which Christians are clearly losing! Pulpit pals: Christians, Jews, Muslims plan shared worship BY ADELLE M.

    Democrats never miss an opportunity to pander to older voters by demagoguing on Social Security -- and Brooklyn Rep. Anthony Weiner seems only too glad to lead the way. Weiner, who dreams of becoming mayor, has introduced a bill to require a two-thirds majority in Congress to enact any changes in Social Security -- a near-impossible hurdle. His goal: to "defend" an entitlement system he insists is "fiscally responsible" and fundamentally sound. "We shouldn't assume the program is on the brink of collapse just because Republicans say it is," Weiner wrote last year -- even as Social Security reached the...

    <p>As important as the outcome of this case is the precedent it could set for extending special treatment to Muslim employees to the exclusion of others -- essentially creating a second class of employees: workplace dhimmis. "Hertz sued over Muslim prayers," from (News Service That May Not Be Named)...Hertz Global Holdings Inc., the second-largest U.S. rental car company, was sued by former employees who say its policy of allowing Muslims to take daily prayer breaks discriminates against non-Muslim workers. Katie Barkley and Shirley Harris, who worked as part-time drivers moving Hertz cars from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to other locations, claim Muslim employees were given as many as three paid, 15-minute prayer breaks each shift while non-Muslim employees were denied equal time off, according to the suit filed Nov. 30 in federal court in Atlanta.</p>

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday offered North Korea a peace treaty, normal ties and aid if it eliminates its nuclear arms program and stressed her desire to work more cooperatively with China. Speaking ahead of a trip to Japan, Indonesia, South Korea and China next week, Clinton also said North Koreans deserved political rights, urged Myanmar to free opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi and, in a comment that may irk Beijing, said Tibetans and all Chinese deserved religious freedom. Searching for a way to end North Korea's nuclear programs is likely to be...

    There are several proposals being discussed in Washington and Tallahassee that would expand the areas on which oil companies could drill off of the coast of Florida. I support a moratorium against the expansion of offshore drilling and have written a column on this topic, a version of which ran last month in the Sun-Sentinel. That said, I am interested to know what you think about this topic, especially now that energy prices are increasing. Thank you for taking a moment to read this and for letting me know your opinion on this important issue.

    First John McCain enlisted the support of the country's only Jewish vice presidential nominee, Joe Lieberman, who ran on the Democratic ticket in 2000. Now he might tap a Jewish vice presidential choice of his own: Eric Cantor. The 45-year-old fourth-term congressman from Virginia has emerged as a serious - if still long-shot - candidate for the VP job in recent days, though the McCain campaign wouldn't confirm reports that Cantor has made the short list. Cantor, the House of Representative's chief deputy minority whip, is known as a rising star in the Republican party with a talent for fund-raising....
