Bill Cosby’s message survives personal disaster

What’s fascinating about the coverage of the persuasive accusations against Bill Cosby, now 18 and rising, is that race doesn’t dominate. There’s an outcry at the abuse of women, and he’s shredded the healthy black-father family man image he carefully cultivated on his sitcom, but you don’t read or hear notice taken of the fact that the women who say he drugged and raped them were usually white.

The joy of sex is over

So this is how the sexual revolution is ending. It is ending with gangs of angry women recalling alleged sexual assaults up to a half-century ago. Their alleged assailant in this case is the avuncular 77-year-old Bill Cosby.

Our gratitude belongs not to government, but to God

What if the government is designed to perpetuate itself? What if the real levers of governmental power are pulled by agents, diplomats and bureaucrats behind the scenes? What if they stay in power no matter who is elected president or which major political party controls Congress?

Obama has forgotten his official duty is to Americans

Like millions of other Americans, I appreciate the plight of billions of people throughout the world who would like nothing more than to find themselves in the United States, where they could enjoy a much higher standard of living and wonderful opportunities for advancement. It should first be considered, however, that we have millions of people already mired in dire poverty.

Black voters for Obama get nothing but disrespect

- The Washington Times

President Obama discounted November’s election results because turnout is lower in midterm than in presidential elections, but there is reason to believe that his treatment of his base contributed to the decision of many Democrats to not bother going to the polls in what everyone recognized as a crucial election.

Slaughter in the synagogue

Executioners for the Islamic State use knives to cut the throats of Christians, Yazidis and “apostate” Muslims. Palestinian executioners last week used knives and a meat cleaver to slaughter Jewish worshippers at a synagogue in West Jerusalem.

EDITORIAL: The pigs find a loophole

"Earmarks," small, large and enormous pots of taxpayers' money that congressmen give themselves to fund pet projects in their districts, usually in return for votes, are a lot like Count Dracula. They won't stay dead. But last week the Republicans in the House put down an attempt by one of their own to resurrect them.

Stop talking, start deporting

Rep. Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, doesn't get it. Now that the anti-Obama wave has put congressional Republicans front and center, his weak blather of "securing the borders" isn't enough.

EDITORIAL: The snows of global warming

Pity the plight of upstate New Yorkers, buried under six feet of snow. The folks who dwell in the lee of the Great Lakes are accustomed to deep drifts of white magic in winter, but a winter wonderland doesn't look so magical when the solstice is still a month away. November is not supposed to behave like January. Some of the global warming "experts" attribute the cause of the early snow to "global warming."

EDITORIAL: Putting momentum in harness

Congressional lethargy and inaction in the wake of the Republican wave of 2010 is not the fault of the Republicans, no matter how loud the cries of frustrated liberals. Over the course of the current Congress, the House of Representatives passed nearly 350 bills, only to see them die in Harry Reid's Senate. Some of them surely deserved death, but not all.

Obama's immigration order regresses America

As President Obama with a single order created what he hopes will be an eventual new electorate via millions of illegal aliens, he did not break new ground; he put America on very old and dangerous ground: government by decree.

Liberal Bully of the Week: Emperor Obama

To quote the band Styx from the classic 1977 song "Come Sail Away": "I tried Oh Lord I tried to carry on ..." to not give the "Bully Award" to Barack Obama once again. However, I had no choice. President Obama has taken bullying to a whole new level not seen since maybe Hugo Chavez (another liberal darling).

Sailing in uncharted Mideast waters

With an anti-war activist as commander in chief who pursues a "progressive" agenda, the result can be devastating. Clearly, the country is being led into uncharted waters. While it is a given that no president in recent history has faced the multitude of threats facing the country, most of them are a result of President Obama's own policies. The Nov. 4 election results signal that Americans want a clear change in direction.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: No immigration amnesty for criminals

President Obama needs to secure our borders. He needs to stop releasing into our country illegals who have committed crimes. It doesn't matter what kind of crimes; many of these illegals have already been deported a couple of times only to sneak back into America and commit deadly acts. Are these the people Mr. Obama wants to give amnesty to?

EDITORIAL: Republicans uphold NSA snooping

Invoking the Constitution is the common rhetoric of many politicians who swore to follow and defend it, but a lot of them have obviously never read it, or if they have, didn't understand it. The Founding Fathers wrote it in plain English, simple enough for even a lawyer to understand, but some politicians nevertheless have trouble with it.
