Catnip for a Clinton

- The Washington Times

This could be make or break week for Hillary Clinton. She still has the money, the name recognition, and the big donors, but her sinking poll numbers say the public is finally on to her, and besides, who wants the distractions of another round of Flem Snopes and his kin in the White House?

Hillary’s leftward flip-flops

At tonight’s Democratic presidential debate, Hillary Clinton will play up her left-wing bona fides in an attempt to revitalize her campaign. That’s extra difficult this time around when her main opponent, Bernie Sanders, is an avowed socialist.

A still-unsettled Clinton-era tragedy

At 10 p.m. local time on June 25, 1996, a 3,000-pound truck bomb was detonated along the perimeter fence of the Khobar Towers Housing Complex in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.

The end of the American Century?

In a 1941 Life magazine article, Henry Luce, a publishing magnate once described as “the most influential private citizen in America,” coined the phrase, “the American Century” to advance his vision of America becoming a benign global superpower that would use its influence to build a new world order based on political and economic freedom.

When cops steal from innocent citizens

Not many people make a habit of carrying large amounts of cash around. After all, thieves could steal it. How ironic, then, that a growing threat to your money is the people you’d call if your money was stolen: the police.

The Fed, the White House and Congress are setting up the next financial bubble

My 13-year-old son told me at the dinner table the other day that Franklin Roosevelt was one of America’s “greatest presidents” because “he ended the Great Depression.” He’s usually a good student, so I checked where he got this tripe and sure enough the fairy tale was right there in his American history book.

Planned Parenthood’s defense of using fetal organs to ‘treat and cure’ is a sham

In the wake of videos exposing its involvement in trading fetal organs, Planned Parenthood has resorted to a “silver lining” defense. The taking of brains, hearts, lungs and livers from the unborn, even the delivery of intact fetal bodies to commercial middlemen, is hailed as a valid scientific procedure. The words “treat and cure” are used.

American Jews in Israel witness Obama’s prejudicial ‘slap in the face’

As an American citizen living in Jerusalem, I recently received two notifications from the U.S. State Department warning of “potential for violence in the Old City,” restricting U.S. government employees from entering the Old City from Sunday, Oct. 4 through Tuesday, Oct. 13 “without prior approval from the U.S. Consulate,” and recommending that “private U.S. citizens take into consideration these restrictions and the additional guidance contained in the Department of State’s travel warning for Israel, Jerusalem and the West Bank when making decisions regarding their travel in the Old City and in Jerusalem.”

The cipher in the White House

- The Washington Times

Perhaps it’s not fair to blame Barack Obama for the mess he’s making. The Middle East is where chaos was invented, after all, and perhaps not even the collection of incompetents and boobs the president has installed in the White House could make things this bad. Maybe it’s someone else’s fault. He blames the Jews.

Fast-roping toward war in the Middle East

The Russians are rapidly reinforcing their bridgehead in Syria, adding ground troops to their air, marine and naval forces. It is a classic air, land and sea intervention by a military establishment that understands how combined arms build synergies and broaden capabilities.

The Clintons' long and mendacious road

Here we are again with Hillary Rodham Clinton confronted by charges of obstruction of justice, perjury and general improbity. Such behavior has been going on with her for a long time. Some journalists who today chronicle the charges facing the Clintons were not even born when it all began.

BOOK REVIEW: 'Jack Kemp: The Bleeding-Heart Conservative who Changed America'

From 1998 to 2009, Fox News aired a weekly program called "The Beltway Boys," featuring two highly respected Washington journalists -- Fred Barnes, a traditional conservative, and Morton Kondracke, an old-school liberal -- commenting on and debating the political issues of the day, and in the process combining the best features of conservatism and liberalism.

Evil can be masked

A key statement in R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.'s "Culture of death" (Web, Oct. 6) is that the "current phenomenon of mass killings began in the middle-1960s ... " Wasn't it in 1963 that the atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hare (in Murray v. Curlett) succeeded in getting the U.S. Supreme Court to ban religion in American public schools? And does not the increase in random mass murders not correlate with the increasingly anti-religious nature of our society?

Immigration policy made America great

"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American. ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Republican mess originates from betrayed voters' belief in big talk

Donald Trump continues to be the leader of the pack, and the reason why is no mystery to anyone who has been listening to the land. Americans are frustrated, angry and many feel desperation over stagnant wages, cultural assaults on their values, declining American influence in a world ever more dangerous, and they're fed up with politicians who make promises they never intend to keep. They've heard some big talk in towns big and small, and now they're left singing the blues in the night. These feelings are reflected in the turmoil over finding a leader of Republicans in the House of Representatives.
