  • The question I asked before any play date (Any evil guns in your house?)

    It was the most awkward and divisive of questions that I would ask of other parents, usually new acquaintances, but also of old friends. We’d be on the phone, discussing our young children, laughing, and the subject of play dates would come up. The other mom might say, “Can Chloe come over here tomorrow to play with Maddie?” I would ask, “Do you keep guns in your house?” Always it would lead to the most illuminating of answers, whether yes or no. If the response was negative, the parent would answer immediately, following up with something like, “No, never. We...

Cruz, speaking to Fox News' Megyn Kelly, condemned Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry for telling Americans "that they think essentially your SUV in the driveway is a greater threat to our security than is ISIS, than is a nuclear Iran and it makes no sense whatsoever."

    Sen. Jeff Sessions is out with a list of 15 vetted refugees who quickly joined jihad plots to attack the United States. He’s spotlighting the refugees-turned-jihadis because he’s trying to prod GOP leaders into halting Congress’ normal practice of giving the president huge leeway to import foreign migrants and refugees into the United States.

    Obama always claims he found out about scandals from the "news". He only ramps up the fight against ISIS, when the media's reporting makes it obvious that the group is still a problem. So he has an obvious solution. If the media would just stop covering ISIS, it wouldn't be a problem. “The media needs to help in this,” he said, admitting that it has been a “difficult week,” with the threat posed by ISIS becoming a primary focus in the media. “One of the things that has to happen is how we report on this has to maintain perspective,...

Internap, based in Atlanta, has a facility in Manhattan, near the the physical location of the IP address for clintonemail.com. In March 2011, the security company RSA was hacked. The hackers got into the companys system through a malware-infested email sent to an employee,...

Cleveland police told the family the officer felt threatened by the dog after the dog barked, even though the officer was aware it was leashed. The incident took place Friday when dog owner Tyler Muzzi saw a stranger walking around his neighbors home. Muzzi contacted his neighbor and then called police to check on the situation. Minutes later, police arrived and arrested the man who had by that time broken into the...

In fact, McCain went so far as to declare on the Hugh Hewitt Show that “no Republican should vote for her confirmation,” given her support of Barack Obama’s executive amnesty: JM: Hugh, I know your time is short....

Yesterday’s assassination of two of New York City’s finest was only the latest and most devastating brush stroke on a canvas which has been coming into focus for months. When you are the mayor of a city you have many responsibilities, but one of the most vital (in terms of maintaining a functional societal structure) is the mandate to enforce the laws and maintain social order. It is the same for mayors everywhere, as well as governors...

    WASHINGTON (AP) The Obama administration pushed back strongly Monday at a torrent of Israeli criticism over Secretary of State John Kerry's latest bid to secure a cease-fire with Hamas, accusing some in Israel of launching a "misinformation campaign" against the top American diplomat. "It's simply not the way partners and allies treat each other," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. Her comments were echoed by the White House, where officials said they were disappointed by Israeli reports that cast Kerry's efforts to negotiate a cease-fire as more favorable to Hamas. "Israel has no better friend, no stronger defender than...

    Americans, Gallup tells us, admire Hillary Clinton more than any other woman in the world -- again. This latest accolade marks the 17th time Gallup has found Clinton to be the Most Admired Woman (MAW?) since she became first lady nearly 20 years ago. Only Eleanor Roosevelt (13 MAWs) comes close. Only Mother Teresa (1995 and 1996) and Laura Bush (2001) have interrupted Clinton's winning streak, and even then, Clinton came in second. And therein lies America's cosmic flaw. A country that could time and again embrace Hillary Clinton as its MAW has lost its mind or its memory or...

    The U.S. military did not get involved during the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, last month because officials did not have enough information about what was going on before the attack was over, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said Thursday. At a Pentagon news briefing, Panetta said there was no "real-time information" to be able to act on, even though the U.S. military was prepared to do so. "You don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on," Panetta said. "(We) felt we could not put forces at risk in that situation." A defense official...

Sigmund Freud himself would have enjoyed watching. Coming on the heels of a presidential debate in which challenger Mitt Romney outdistanced President Obama, leaving him to chase Romney in the polls, the bulk of the American electorate really only had one question left: If Mitt Romney were, tragically, to die in office, would Paul Ryan be able to take over and be a credible president of the United States?

    According to the latest Gallup poll, Mitt Romney has leapt from a significant deficit to a 2-point lead in the wake of his widely lauded Presidential debate performance. He is simultaneously closing in on Obamas lead in several swing states. This dramatic change may turn out to be even more meaningful when viewed through a lens that properly values the psychological power of incumbency. A shift by the electorate away from an incumbent president has more in common with divorce than it does with opting against a second date. When Americans bond with a president for more than three years,...

Given the parameters within which his reelection campaign has been operating, only the utter incompetence of the Republican nominee could have failed to make the first debate a challenging evening for the president.

    Should Hillary Clinton resign as secretary of state due to the WikiLeaks revelations? My friend Jack Shafer at Slate makes a good case. His reason: Clinton, like predecessor Condoleezza Rice, signed orders instructing U.S. foreign service officers to spy on the diplomats of other nations. Cables went out under her name telling State Department officials overseas to collect the fingerprints, facial images, DNA, and iris scans of African leaders, to obtain passwords, credit card numbers, and frequent flyer accounts used by foreign diplomats, and to gather private information on United Nations officials, including Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

    Research tells me the nation is not going to be safer with James R. Clapper Jr. as DNI, because his track record is one of a bureaucrat, not a problem solver.

    President Obama has selected Elena Kagan, the solicitor general of the United States, as his nominee to replace the retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. From her official bio: Kagan came to Harvard Law School as a visiting professor in 1999 and became Professor of Law in 2001. While on the faculty, Kagan taught administrative law, constitutional law, civil procedure, and seminars on issues involving the separation of powers. She was appointed Dean of the Law School in 2003. Aside from employment as an associate in a law firm, her functions before becoming the solicitor general were primarily academic, and later...
  • Kagan a Courtroom Novice No Problem for High Court, Supporters Say

    Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan has never been a judge, she's never ruled on a case and she's never written an opinion. But that doesn't mean she's President Obama's Harriet Miers. For the president's supporters, lack of courtroom experience is no problem for a Supreme Court justice. "President Obama said he wanted someone on the high court who understood the impact of the law on average Americans, and I believe the depth and breadth of Ms. Kagan's will allow her that perspective," Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said Monday in a statement echoed by several Democrats. While Republicans raise...

    When now Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito faced a Senate confirmation vote in 2006, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., had no qualms about rejecting Alito simply because she did not agree with him. "If one is pro-choice in this day and age, in this structure, one can't vote for Judge Alito," Feinstein declared. Feinstein went even further. When Republicans argued that simple fairness demanded a full floor vote on Alito, Feinstein, like Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., supported the use of the filibuster to prevent it. They tried but failed to prevent a majority-rules vote. Now that...

    Members from all three branches of the Federal government already know that Barack Hussein Obama is ineligible for the office of President. National leaders, to include members of the US Supreme Court, already know that Barack Hussein Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States of America, and therefore, is ineligible for the office he currently holds. What they dont know is how long it will take for most Americans to figure it out, or what to do about it. The diversionary search for an authentic birth certificate is ongoing and Obama has now spent in excess...

    House Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) says the "negative atmosphere" created by the tea party movement has influenced the retirement decisions of some House Democrats (but not Bart Stupak): Do I think that [the] negative atmosphere thats been created by the Tea Party and by others certainly goes into the thinking of members? I think it does. I think you have to honestly point out that it does, Hoyer added. I dont think that was the determining factor with respect to Mr. Stupak, because again, he was in very good shape in the polls. It wasnt a question...
  • Barack Obama: The Miss America Presidency

    When I first set eyes on Barack Obama I knew that the Republicans didnt have a chance at winning the Presidency. Obama, a young, handsome, bi-racial idealist whispering the poetry of hope and change was unstoppable when placed next to the old, white, sameness of John McCain. Everything about the Obama candidacy seemed perfectly orchestrated. His presidency, while less popular, has been equally choreographed. There is an almost beauty pageant perfection to his image. The beauty pageant world of President Obama continued this week with the signing of the Nuclear Arms Treaty with Russia. NPRs Morning Edition ran a story,...

    A campaign ad on behalf of J.D. Hayworths effort to unseat Senator John McCain) in Arizonas upcoming Republican primary election sparked an angry response from the Senator. Senators have a weighty responsibility of dealing with foreign affairs, McCain said. Senators, for example, must approve treaties. My opponents ad may have done serious damage to this nations ability to make treaties with the Navi in the future. Will the Navi be willing to come to the bargaining table with our nation after being mocked by a candidate for the US Senate? Such reckless disregard of delicate issues involving diplomacy demonstrate an...

    BOSTON (Associated Press) -- Once and possibly future Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney says in a new book that President Barack Obama's international outreach efforts during his first year in office have been "kindling" to the "anti-American fires burning all across the globe." In a wide-ranging policy book none-too-subtly titled "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness," Romney says the Democrat's efforts to reconcile with foreign powers, Muslims and others angered by President George W. Bush's administration have weakened the country's stature instead of enhancing it.
