    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is driving young Muslims "closer to the terrorists," said actress and feminist icon Jane Fonda. Ms. Fonda, 78, appeared Sunday night at the Women's Equality and ERA Coalition's "Night of Comedy" in Manhattan, accusing Mr. Trump of "fanning the flames of people's anxieties and racism," the New York Daily News reported. "It's terrible and it's dangerous," Ms. Fonda said. "Even if he doesn't make it, which I don't think he will, the fact that he's said the things he's said about Muslims for example,...

    The Iowa Democratic caucus which I've already described as akin to the Marxist Zimbabwe Farmers-workers confabs is over, and it appears -- as Mark Steyn ably notes -- "almost certain" that Hillary Clinton did not win it. If Iowa were one of those banana republics in which the president-for-life has been prevailed upon to hold an election and Jimmy Carter and a bunch of UN observers had flown in to certify it, none of the above would pass muster. But in the Democrat Party it does:[snip] In effect, Hillary and Bernie fought Iowa to a draw. But a miss is...

    Kerry did aid in creating the vacuum that the Islamic State filled, with the precipitous withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and the American support for the weak Shia government in Baghdad. He also helped arm the Islamic State by sending weapons to “moderates” who either weren’t moderate and gave their weapons to the Islamic State, or who were weak and allowed their weapons to be captured by the Islamic State.

    US Secretary of State John Kerry's recent remarks regarding Russia's role in the Syrian conflict shows how Moscow's military aid to Damascus has weakened Washington's position in the Arab country, an American geopolitical analyst says. Kerry on Thursday demanded that Russia halt its bombing campaign in Syria, implicitly blaming Moscow for the collapse in the UN-sponsored peace talks in Geneva. In an interview with Press TV, Eric Draitser said that Kerry's remarks hint at Washington's fading influence in Syria. "What this really tells you is that the United States recognizes just how weak its position has become, its position both...

    As those who follow Syria's seemingly intractable civil war are no doubt aware, Washington is a big part of why the conflict is now going into its sixth year. What began as a plan to destabilize the Alawite government by "playing on Sunni fears of Iranian influence" (to quote a leaked diplomatic cable from then-Deputy Chief of Mission in Syria William Roebuck) gradually metamorphosed into a overt and at times absurd effort to arm and train a series of rebel groups in an attempt to bring about regime change in Damascus. Those efforts have thus far failed, in part because...

    President Barack Obama, who is vacationing in Hawaii, released a pre-Christmas statement yesterday, celebrating the fifth anniversary of his having signed legislation that allows openly homosexual, lesbian and bisexual individuals to serve in the U.S. military. "Today, Americans can serve the country they love no matter who they love, and openly gay, lesbian and bisexual men and women in uniform make our military stronger and America safer," said the president. ...

    Bowe Bergdahl arraigned in court martial at North Carolina Army base FORT BRAGG, N.C. – Wearing a dress blue uniform, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl faced a military judge Tuesday for the first time since the U.S. Army decided to proceed with a military trial that could result in a life sentence for his disappearance in Afghanistan in 2009. Bergdahl, who was held by the Taliban for five years after he walked off a base, was arraigned during a short hearing on charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, a relatively rare charge that carries the severe punishment. If convicted of...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham would work with Hillary Clinton on a range of issues if she became president in exchange for concessions on fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. The South Carolina Senator, who is trailing in polls of the Republican presidential field, told TIME after a town hall meeting in Londonderry, N.H., that he would give a hypothetical President Clinton “political cover” on other issues if she fought ISIS. “If she’s willing to be more robust in terms of destroying ISIL, I’d give her political cover,” Graham said. “If she wanted to be more muscular in her foreign...

    Rubio doubled down on his line of attack highlighting Cruz's support for an amendment in 2013 that would have doubled the number of green cards and increased five-fold the number of visas for highly skilled foreign workers. "I think Ted wanted to not talk about legalization during the primary and leave himself the option of being for it in a general election. I don't think that's fair to the electorate," Rubio said on CBS's "Face the Nation." Cruz's amendment would have stripped language from the 2013 Senate immigration reform bill giving illegal immigrants a pathway to citizenship but still would...

    At the beginning of December, Rolling Stone writer Jeff Goodell asked Secretary of State John Kerry whether Charles and David Koch, two libertarian political activists, should be considered - his remarkable words - "an enemy of the state." He posed the same question about Exxon, and John Kerry, who could have been president of these United States, said that he looked forward to the seizure of Exxon's assets for the crime of "proselytizing' impermissibly about the question of global warming. An enemy of the state? That's the Democrats' theme for the New Year: totalitarianism. Donald Trump may talk like a...

    This week, the US Army announced that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will stand trial on charges of desertion and "misbehaving before the enemy." Bergdahl was returned to the US in exchange for the release of five terrorists in 2014. Bergdahl spent five years with the Taliban after leaving his military post in Afghanistan in 2009. At the time of the exchange, President Obama welcomed Bergdahl home saying that he had "served with honor and distinction." Press Secretary Josh Earnest denied that the Army's decision to court-martial him invalidated the President's earlier praise of the man, saying that "in our country a...
  • Is it Time to 'Refresh the Tree of Liberty?'

    Thomas Jefferson was aware that "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Now, by doling out what little is left of America's wealth to foreign interlopers, those that fit into the tyrant category are shaking the tree of liberty with a decision that includes crediting back payments for time worked illegally in the U.S. In other words, as part of Obama's 'fundamental transformation,' America has transitioned from a nation who once threatened to fine employers for hiring illegals into a nation crediting illegals with back Social Security payments for...
