    Remember Marie Harf? She served as President Obama's Deputy State Department spokeswoman from July 2013 to May 2015, often providing the press updates on the White House's efforts to combat terror abroad. One of the most memorable moments of her tenure, however, was in 2015 when she told MSNBC's Chris Matthews that the U.S. could not defeat ISIS by killing them and suggested that poverty is what led terrorists to the battlefield in the first place. She received plenty of criticism for the remark, but shrugged it off by saying they were simply too "nuanced." Following her highly public role...

    Newt Gingrich took the stage at the Georgia Republican Party state convention on Saturday wearing a Mitt Romney sticker, focusing his attacks on President Barack Obama and attempting to energize the crowd around his former Republican rival. "To every conservative, everywhere in America: When your choice on the one hand is Barack Obama, and your choice on the other hand is Mitt Romney, no serious conservative could possibly believe that electing Barack Obama is acceptable ... for America."

    It's no surprise to see presidential candidates pandering to contributors. But what is disappointing is how far some of them will go to take care of those who take care of them.Imagine being so eager to please the money crowd that you'll try to destroy a reform measure that is reasonable and helpful, especially when the help is going to the same folks you claim to represent. That's what happened recently when the major Democratic presidential candidates made a pilgrimage to the annual convention of the National Education Association, the nation's largest teachers union with 3.2 million members, and --...

    The Democrats will do John Murthaís bidding. He owns them. Itís over. The House of Representatives will vote to defund the Iraq War, Mitch McConnell will have to fight a battle royal to prevent that sentiment from carrying the senate. There are those who would ask if Iím from Planet Murtha and they may even wonder if Iíve responsibly redeployed my common sense to Okinawa. When the new congress organized, Murtha was elected dog that runs behind Steny Hoyer. He should be the man whose view stays the same every day. This would hold true; except for one small thing....
  • No reason for flag-burning amendment

    Nearly 30 years after Chicago Cubs outfielder Rick Monday snatched an American flag from two idiots at Dodger Stadium who had doused it in lighter fluid and were trying to light it with a match, we still applaud him for his exemplary act of patriotism ó for acting on our behalf. As devoted as we are to free speech, we would have been hard-pressed to bottle our anger over the desecration of the Stars and Stripes before tens of thousand of spectators. Our appreciation of Monday was not diminished by his appearance last week at a rally for a proposed...
