The Supreme Court and the Phony War on Women

(Editor’s Note:  This column was posted just a few hours after the Supreme Court decision was handed down in the Hobby Lobby case.  But because of a technical glitch we were unable to send out our regular newsletter alert informing you the column was on the site.  If it feels a tad behind the curve,…

Where Obama’s Scandals Go to Die

Of all the “phony scandals” that have plagued the Obama administration – (there’s not enough space on the worldwide web to list them all) – the worst, I think, is the one about the IRS targeting political opponents of the president. Why that one? How about … because it’s the IRS! Every agency of the…

Are We Really the UNITED States of America Anymore?

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that liberals are blaming President George W. Bush for the chaos that is tearing Iraq apart while conservatives are blaming President Barack Obama, who they say inherited a fledgling democracy and did nothing while the country slid into a religious civil war. They’re both right. President Bush started the fire by…

Hillary Clinton and Income Inequality

An Angry Feminist Links Movies to Murder

This space is usually reserved for columns I write. Not this time.  Today, I’m posting a piece by Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday. It’s a column that links the recent murders in Santa Barbara to supposedly sexist movies made in Hollywood by “white men.”  I’m posting it in this space because this is something…

A Community Organizer in Way Over His Head

Let’s see if I have this right: President Obama is constantly in the cross-hairs of hyper-partisan, cheap-shot Republicans who turn everything they can get their hands on into a “scandal” – which are really “phony scandals” as far as President Obama and his acolytes are concerned. But rest assured the president was mad as hell…
