Who Needs Enemies With Friends Like These?

When I read last week that there were over 20 House and Senate Democrats that planned to boycott Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress this morning, I was furious.  Today, I read that the numbers had increased to 50.  Those members of Congress are paid to do a job by “we, the people”…

Why Obama So Dislikes Netanyahu

There is no question about whether President Obama — along with Secretary of State John Kerry and the editorial pages of many newspapers — has a particular dislike of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. But there is another question: Why? And the answer is due to an important rule of life that too few people…

Best of Times or Worst of Times?

Last week, John Kerry seemed to be auditioning for the role of Dr. Pangloss. Despite jihadi violence across the Middle East and ISIS terror in Iraq and Syria, Kerry told Congress, we live in “a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally — less deaths, less violent…

GOP Platform: War Without End

My advice: Deplore the treaty; do not attack the president. The next day, Howard Phillips declared that Ronald Reagan had…

The President and ‘Violent Extremism’

Regarding Islamic violence — the greatest world evil since Nazism and Communism — the president of the United States, his administration, and the left generally live in a make-believe world, a world of denial.

You Cannot Defeat An Enemy You Do Not Admit Exists

Speaking at the White House conference on “Countering Violent Extremism,” President Obama tried to explain his refusal to make any connections between Islam and terrorism. “Leading up to this summit there’s been a fair amount of debate in the press and among pundits about the words we use to describe and frame this challenge, so…
