Terror and the State of the Union

President Obama barely mentioned terrorism in his State of the Union address to Congress and the nation, spending a couple of minutes on the subject. It was actually the first time since 9/11 that a president failed to mention Al Qaeda – you remember them – and of course the term "Islamic terrorism" was completely…

Honesty and Islamic Terror

As any recovering alcoholic or drug addict will tell you, the first step on the road to sobriety is honesty. It can be excruciatingly difficult, but it's essential to admit your problem. The same is true in politics and punditry. As just one example, those of us who supported the 2003 invasion of Iraq should…

The Left’s Deep River of Denial

The pattern is entirely predictable. First, a savage terror attack is carried out in the name of Islam, usually by men shouting "Allahu Akbar." Second, hard news reports list the number of dead, the weaponry used, and the status of the killers. And then, within hours, some mushy-headed apologists descend on liberal news outlets to…

Fox Hunters, Shooting Blanks

Since it's time for New Year's predictions, here's one that is pretty much a sure bet: Fox News will dominate the cable ratings in 2015, just as it has for the past thirteen years. CNN will be a distant second, with MSNBC dragging up the rear, playing the role of the Washington Generals to FNC's…

Well, New York City is now led by a man who is absolutely unworthy of that office. That was made crystal clear last summer when Mayor Bill de Blasio convened a City…

Pick a Better Country!

The above heading was actually the title of a book written in the 1990s by black conservative Ken Hamblin. He grew up in the most impoverished area of Brooklyn, briefly embraced the Black Panthers, then concluded that the USA, for all its flaws, offers more opportunity than any other nation on earth. Not just to…

America Haters Running Wild

These are heady days for Americans who revel in running down their country. If you buy what they're selling, the USA is a place where white cops hunt down and kill young black men at the slightest provocation, where pretty much every college male is a rapist-in-waiting. And overseas? We torture our enemies with a…

And Nothing but the Truth

The truth is supposed to matter. We've all had that drilled into us since we were tykes, it's what we tell our own children and grandchildren. But in 2014 America the truth is getting pummeled on a daily basis. We just endured an ugly episode that severely damaged race relations and still has America on…
