Attack of the Open-Borders Mau-Mau-ers

I stand with the Santa Barbara News-Press. How about you? The newspaper is under fire for refusing to kowtow to left-wing word police and militant propagandists who demand unfettered illegal immigration. Last week, in the wake of angry protests against the publication, vandals threw paint bombs and spray-painted graffiti on its offices. So, what exactly…

Hey, How’s America’s Rail Security Doing?

With vengeance-seeking global jihadists on the loose here and around the world, now is a good time to ask (again): Are we ready for a nefarious terrorist attack on our train and transit lines? Smoke and fire plagued two of the nation’s major metro rail stations this week, raising justified questions about safety and preparedness….

Media Cowards and the Cartoon Jihad

I have never laughed so bitterly as I did while reading Thursday’s lead editorial by the great pretender-defenders of free speech at The New York Times. Paying obligatory lip service to the 10 cartoonists and staffers of the Paris satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo who were slaughtered for offending Islam, the Times intoned: “It is absurd…

The Black Brunch Brats

America’s social justice movement has reached a critical turning point. The left’s bravest young warriors for change have turned … back to 1989 and borrowed costumes from Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation” music video. Clad in black-ops black from head to toe with fists held high, stylin’ members of the so-called “Black Brunch” brigade look like…

Obamacare’s Annus Horribilis

There’s no candy coating the truth: Obamacare has had a very terrible, horrible, crappy, none-too-happy year. What it really means is that the victims of Obamacare — taxpayers, health care consumers, health care providers, employers and employees — have had a hellish, nightmarish 2014. Let’s start with premiums. President Candy Land promised that he’d “lower…

All Life Matters: Jahi McMath’s Journey

“Jahi McMath is ALIVE.” The very first column I filed in 2014 exposed the plight of a beautiful young girl, the same age as my daughter, whom medical experts declared “brain dead” after a routine tonsillectomy gone wrong. Are you ready for the rest of the story? Doctors told Jahi’s mom, Nailah Winkfield, that her…

Mrs. Obama’s Tall Tales of Racialized Victimhood

Oh, woe is she. In an “exclusive” interview with People magazine this week, first lady Michelle Obama lamented the “sting” of “racist experiences” that she and her husband allegedly still suffer. My message for America’s Marie Antoinette? Cry me a river. To show how she’s down with The Struggle of post-Ferguson agitators, Mrs. Obama cited…

Jeb Bush: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Waterboy

Allow me to unite America’s left, right and center in just three words: No, Jeb, No. Former GOP Florida governor Jeb Bush made the obvious official this week when he announced on Facebook that he’s “actively exploring” a 2016 White House run. Of course, he’s running. That’s what inveterate politicians do. Well, I hate to…
