A dog whistle by the master

- The Washington Times

Barack Obama has the master wordsmith’s gift for bending language, saying something that sounds good, but heard as something not so good.

Jim Webb, a maverick with a message

It’s going to be easy — and fun for some — to dismiss the presidential candidacy of former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, if he actually decides to run.

An attitude of gratitude

Is there anything in the world that can stop the United States of America? We were born struggling against the British Empire — the most powerful entity at the time — and we totally wiped the floor with those crumpet-gobblers.

The coming Washington war

If you thought the bare-knuckled, no-holds-barred, midterm elections were rough, the last two years of Barack Obama’s presidency will make that look like a Sunday school picnic.

Opening the door to a peaceful Libya

We all remember how in February 2011 the Arab Spring reached Libya, and Libyans came together to overthrow a 42-year-old dictatorship that crushed any semblance of democracy, freedom and free will.

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 truly first Thanksgiving

What sustained both Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay was that, thankfully, America could be carved into a better community for all, providing that elusive but mysterious challenge that was missing from the lives of so many in England.

Death of the Sexual Revolution Illustration by Greg Groesch/The Washington Times

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.

Obama's global-warming propaganda Down Under

The focus of the 2014 Group of 20 summit meeting in Brisbane, Australia, was on stimulating economic growth across the industrialized world. Thanks, though, to President Obama's grandstanding and attempted sabotage of the agenda as laid out by the host country, climate change also came to prominence.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: 'Shoot' the lame duck session

Isn't it time that we put the lame-duck congressional session out of its and our misery? Perhaps allowing Congress to go ahead and do its work with some members that have been repudiated by their constituents made some sense with the limitations of travel and information transfer of the 1700s — but it now seems to be a quaint and dangerous anachronism.

The reason to not give up on immigration reform

Winston Churchill said, "You can always count on Americans to do the right thing — after they've tried everything else." Indeed, few nations have been tested as much as the United States has.

EDITORIAL: A sneak attack on taxpayers

Election Day should have taught legislators everywhere the lesson that they must be more respectful to the men and women who pay the taxes, and to show a little respect for the dollars those men and women send to municipal, state and federal treasuries. The message seems to have got lost on the way to Ohio.

Why I'm committed to immigration reform

I am firmly committed to being part of reforming our nation's immigration laws. Conservatives and liberals agree that our complex immigration system is broken and in need of repair. Although the two sides disagree on solutions, I have three important ideas that should be part of the debate and that should please most Americans.

Respecting the law by fixing it

Our immigration system is broken and both parties are to blame. But now is not the time for pointing fingers and inciting division — now is the time for solutions.

Hope for immigration reform in the 114th Congress

Our failed immigration policies in the United States don't work for anyone. I have long argued that we will never, ever solve this problem until we fix our legal immigration system.

BOOK REVIEW: 'Stop the Coming Civil War'

Michael Savage is not the only writer to conclude this nation is more divided now that at any time since the Civil War. However, the author and radio talk-show host has explored in-depth America's step-by-step removal from the ideal of "one nation, indivisible."

The time to win the future is now

We won our independence as a nation with 3 million Americans. Today we are the freest, richest and most powerful nation in the world with more than 300 million Americans. Immigration made us strong. Powerful. Economically dynamic. Growing.

Why immigration is good for U.S. growth

If one thing unites almost everyone in the United States, no matter their political views, it is this: We need greater investment and growth with more jobs and opportunity for as many Americans as possible. If there is another thing that most Americans can agree on, it is that too many elected leaders in Washington seem unwilling or unable to tackle the most pressing issues that face our country.
