Majorities of the 1,706 adults surveyed favor President Obama, like Obamacare, support amnesty, favor high taxes, and say government should redistribute wealth. Yet a 54% of Californians--and 44% of Democrats--say that the Keystone XL pipeline should be built, contrary to Obama's veto.
An article which appeared today in the German magazine, PI-News, reports that during a six-month break from his job with … Continue reading

Nebraska state Sen. Ernie Chambers compared U.S. police to Islamic State terrorists and added that if he carried a weapon, he'd use it on a cop. My ISIS is the police, Chambers said during a Friday legislative hearing. I wouldn't go to Syria, I wouldn't go to Iraq, I wouldn't go to Afghanistan, I wouldn't go to Yemen, I wouldn't go to Tunisia, I wouldn't go to Lebanon, I wouldn't go to Jordan, I would do it right here, he added. Nobody from ISIS ever terrorized us as a people as the police do us daily. Nebraska Watchdog recorded the lawmaker's statements and uploaded the audio to their website. Chambers wasn't done ranting at that point. He added that if he carried a firearm, he would shoot a cop. If I was going to carry a weapon, it wouldn't be against you, it wouldn't be against these people who come here that I might have a dispute with. Mine would be for the police, Chambers said. And if I carried a gun I'd want to shoot him first and then ask questions later, like they say the cop ought to do.
Earlier this week, Meredith Shiner at Yahoo News, a political reporter with roughly six years of experience and a jourmalism degree from Duke, demonstrated breathtaking ignorance about Ted Cruz's reference to God-given rights. She tweeted the following in reaction: "Bizarre to talk about how rights are God-made and not man-made in your speech announcing a POTUS bid? When Constitution was man-made?" In a post on Shiner's tweet on Monday, I wondered how widespread such breathtaking ignorance might be. In his Fox News "Watters' World" segment on Bill O'Reilly's show on Tuesday, Jesse Watters found some individual answers, many of them far from encouraging:
Venezuela's socialist regime is much more than a human-rights violator, and their nefarious actions have ramifications for national security in the region.
The news that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is to be tried for desertion casts the 2014 prisoner swap in a new light. President Barack Obama traded five senior Taliban leaders, who had been imprisoned at Guantánamo Bay, for Bergdahl--and did so without giving Congress 30 days' advance notice. In doing so, the Obama administration broke the law, according to a report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office. That violation was not just a crime, but also, in context, a high crime.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali should be the perfect feminist hero. Viewed from a certain level of abstraction, it is hard to imagine one person who fits the role on so many levels: She’s an escapee — literally — from an abusive patriarchy. She’s an African immigrant who made her own way in a Western country, the Netherlands, starting from...

On February 12, the Pentagon quietly declassified a top-secret 386-page Department of Defense document from 1987 detailing Israel's nuclear program – the first time Israel’s alleged nuclear program has ever been officially and publically referenced by the U.S. authorities. In the declassified document, the Pentagon reveals supposed details about Israel’s deterrence capabilities, but it kept sections on France, Germany, and Italy classified. Those sections are blacked out in the document.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES I am, for the most part, a partisan hack. Accordingly, the last two months have been difficult because in an ideal world I would spend all or almost all my time criticizing Democrats. However, Republicans have failed so spectacularly and repeatedly since taking over control of Congress that it’s difficult to find the time and energy. The latest of | Read More »
The ground has truly shifted when a policeman actually says it's perfectly reasonable for a rape victim to just do nothing, or to let educational officials handle one of the most serious of crimes facing society today, Neil Macdonald writes.
As he pulls together his expected presidential campaign in Iowa and New Hampshire, Rand Paul is confronted by defections from an unexpected quarter: the die-hard idealists whose energy powered his father’s campaigns. That network of committed supporters was expected to convey to Rand Paul, the natural successor to Ron Paul’s libertarian...
