    Refugees: Another One for the “Not Our Problem” File

    Among the benefits of Donald Trump’s proposed immigration moratorium is that we won’t have to keep importing hordes of Third World “refugees,” such as the ones currently swarming across Europe.

  • Meet Candy Carson: The Anti-Michelle Obama

    Meet Candy Carson: The Anti-Michelle Obama

    After nearly eight years of the East Wing’s politics of mope and complain, it’s refreshing to see a presidential candidate’s spouse who is always smiling.

  • Cutting Red Tape

    Cutting Red Tape

    I’m upset that the presidential candidates, all of them, rarely mention a huge problem: the quiet cancer that kills opportunity — regulation. The accumulated burden of it is the reason that America is stuck in the slowest economic recovery since the Depression.

  • Academic Fascism II

    Academic Fascism II

    Last week’s column highlighted college campus absurdities and the ongoing attack on free speech and plain common sense. As parents gear up to fork over $20,000 to $60,000 for college tuition, they might benefit from knowing what greets their youngsters. Deceitful college officials, who visit high schools to recruit students and talk to parents, conceal the worst of their campus practices. Let’s expose some of it.

    With Hillary Clinton’s multiple misdeeds coming to light and causing her political problems, reflected in her declining support in the polls, both she and the Democratic Party have reason to be concerned.

  • Iran Deal Is Obama's Foreign Policy Obamacare

    Iran Deal Is Obama’s Foreign Policy Obamacare

    President Obama’s sordid Iran nuke deal is looking more and more like the foreign policy version of Obamacare. It’s duplicitous, secretive, destructive and legacy-driven, and he’s going to have to go full community organizer to get it passed.

  • Obama Bets Nuclear Deal Will Change Iran's Regime; Few Agree

    Obama Bets Nuclear Deal Will Change Iran’s Regime; Few Agree

    “Faute de mieux.” That means “for want of something better” in Secretary of State John Kerry’s second language. It’s also the best case made by its journalistic defenders for approval of the nuclear weapons deal Kerry negotiated with Iran. Or to be more exact, for rallying 34 votes in the Senate or 146 votes in the House to uphold a presidential veto of a congressional vote to disapprove.

    Leftist Censors Strike Again

    Angelique Clark, a sophomore at West Career and Technical Academy in Las Vegas, says the Clark County School District denied her application to charter a pro-life club as a chapter of Students for Life of America, the nation’s largest youth pro-life organization. The district, according to Clark, said, “It was too controversial, and it would be too exclusive, and it would leave out pro-choice people.”

    For a month now, the Saudi air force has been bombing Yemen to reverse a takeover of that nation of 25 million by Houthi rebels, and reinstall a president who fled his country and is residing in Riyadh.

  • Rand Paul Puts on a Clinic

    Rand Paul Puts on a Clinic

    At this point, I am mighty bullish on Sen. Ted Cruz but I very much like several other possible GOP presidential contenders, and I have to say that Republicans can learn a valuable lesson from Sen. Rand Paul’s recent handling of the ambush media.

  • Obama Deal With Iran in Trouble

    Obama Deal With Iran in Trouble

    Is the tide turning against President Obama’s purported nuclear weapons deal with Iran? One sign that the answer is yes is the devastating opinion article in Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal by former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and George Shultz.
