Beware Putin and his ‘anti-Hitler coalition’

Contrary to the principles of American foreign policy of the last 70 years, President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry tacitly invited Russia to “help” monitor things in the Middle East.

‘Pravda’ on Russia in Syria

Pravda is the most abused word in the Russian language. Though it means “truth,” we learned it as the name of a Soviet-era, government-controlled newspaper that printed everything except the truth.

When bureaucrats rule personal preference

Ours is a nation of laws, not men. Our Constitution requires the concurrence of majorities in both houses of Congress and the signature of the president in order to create those laws.

Gumming up the works over Benghazi

- The Washington Times

Pity the American voter. Angry, frustrated and desperate, in successive elections he delivers more Republican soldiers to Congress, all in the spirit of Dr. Johnson’s famous description of a second marriage as “the triumph of hope over experience.” All that changes in Washington is the size of the nothingburgers.

Obama’s sop to Big Labor

President Obama is hosting Big Labor bosses at the White House on Wednesday for a “Summit on Worker Voice.” The event will “focus on how workers can make their voices heard in the workplace.” This alleged voice deficit is being identified as a cause for a weak job market and wage stagnation.

No moral outrage in the military

Recent articles highlighting horrifying child abuse atrocities inflicted on defenseless children by our Afghan military and police partners are but the latest examples of how President Obama is destroying U.S. military forces.

Big Labor’s assault on employee freedom

'Taint funny, Hillary

While the Donald tries to overcome his reputation as an over-the-top television entertainer to caress his ambition to become president, Hillary Rodham Clinton is running for comedienne in chief. She went on "SaturdayNight Live" to trade her high seriousness for laughs. Neither candidate will seal the deal the way they're trying to do it.

Cruz stands out and up

Well over 30 years removed from our last truly conservative presidential candidate, a rare opportunity to elect another presents itself in candidate Ted Cruz. Genial of nature yet fierce in conviction, Sen. Cruz needn't be Ronald Reagan any more than Ronald Reagan needed to be Abraham Lincoln. We simply need Cruz to be Cruz.

Clintons planning ruinous comeback

Conservatives and true Americans must not be fooled by Hillary Clinton's seemingly failing campaign. Make no mistake, the vast Clinton machine has its 'woe-are-us' routine and a miraculous campaign comeback planned out perfectly so as to test its most loyal inner circles long before the general-election dance.

A numbness to pain

The bullets fly and all eyes turn to gawk at the pain and suffering in the wake of the latest mass murder. President Obama steps in front of the cameras and scolds America and the press for becoming numb to violence. Then tragedy fades from the headlines with the rest of yesterday's news.

Sowing sexual confusion

When nature calls, who answers? The answer is important in the current national obsession with bodily function. Who's who and who's got what determines who can use which public restroom. But the factory-installed sexual equipment, which should settle the argument, is no longer the determining factor.

Trampling the natural right to self-defense

Obama's lone, ironic success

Russian President Vladimir Putin long ago took the measure of President Obama and found him wanting -- in knowledge of global affairs, comprehension of human nature, appreciation of world history and backbone.

Framers knew what they were doing

The framers of our Constitution included the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights. The best-known reason is for this was to give Americans the right to possess firearms for self-defense against assaults and other types of physical violence.

Echoes of a Clinton past

Hillary Clinton is taking a lot of heat for her manifold greed and transgressions over the years since she and her husband brought their long-running circus to town 22 years ago, and she just can't find a way to turn the thermostat down.

When Democrats make a meal of Democrats

The left-wing revolutionaries who dominate the Democratic Party are beginning to devour each other. Led by Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a descendant of Robespierre as well as American Indians (she isn't sure which ones), the liberals are doing all they can to destroy the professional careers of all within their ranks who disagree with the prevailing ideology.

A culture of death?

Regarding last week's mass murder in Oregon, what is there to say that is new? There was a day in America when such an atrocity was almost unheard of. There were family feuds, mafia murders and I guess what were called juvenile delinquents' murders, though they were comparatively rare and for the most part ignored.
