The ill-timed climate change talk

President Obama has been mocked and appropriately so for his ludicrous comment that the upcoming climate change summit in Paris will be a “powerful rebuke” to the terrorists. No. This summit is a powerful rebuke to common sense.

Creating isolation, not assimilation

Despite the exposure refugee resettlement has received lately, there has been little discussion of how the program actually operates.

How Obama ducks responsibility

The Federal Reserve is President Obama’s last chance for ducking responsibility for America’s weak economy. For seven years, Mr. Obama and Democrats have blamed George W. Bush and Republicans for an economy that has underperformed throughout this administration. With that excuse growing ever less plausible, and an election looming, Mr. Obama and Democrats need a new economic excuse; higher interest rates from the Fed offers them just that.

Hypocrisy from Foggy Bottom

Weak, confused and ‘unable to grasp’

- The Washington Times

Many bad things happen when a leader is weak, confused and forever in search of a credible reason to do nothing. For all his softness on Islam, Barack Obama has little insight into the men who send out mobs to cry “death to America.” He can’t imagine that men can listen to the call to evening Muslim prayer, which so captivated him as a boy growing up in Indonesia — “the prettiest sound on Earth” — and be inspired to dream of bringing down death on America.

NOAA’s climate change science fiction

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is the nation’s leading collector of climate data. Every day, NOAA analyzes vast amounts of data to predict changes to our climate, weather, oceans and coasts. The agency also publishes monthly temperature averages across the nation and compares those numbers to historical temperature records.

Behind Obama’s lack of leadership

President Truman’s decision to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki killed more than 200,000 civilians but stopped a war that had already killed tens of millions and could have wiped out millions more.

Tapping into energy obstructionism

When the Obama administration moved to embrace offshore energy exploration in Alaska earlier this year, skeptics raised a leery eyebrow. Could an administration so hostile to fossil fuels actually change its stripes?

U.S.-Iran Policy Paradox Illustration by Greg Groesch/The Washington Times

Obama’s Mideast paradox

Most students of Physics 101 have been exposed to a well-known thought experiment called “Schrodinger’s Cat.” In this experiment, renowned Danish physicist Erwin Schrodinger illustrates an absurd feature of quantum theory that allows a hypothetical cat to be both be alive and dead at the same time. This, however, is impossible, a paradox.

Illustration on giving thanks for the American military by Linas Garsys/The Washington Times

Grateful for American muscle

We Americans have much to be grateful for. Every year we gather together with friends and family to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. When we do, we should be grateful as well for the service of the American military in far-flung outposts.

The hypocrisy of smoking bans

When HUD Secretary Julian Castro announced a proposed rule to ban smoking in public housing nationwide, the absurdity was too much to bear. Here was another predictable liberal toady from President Obama's regime (and a man very often mentioned as a possible vice presidential running mate for Hillary Clinton) sanctimoniously issuing a supposedly grave concern about the health and safety of poor Americans.

No justice for Tayshawn Lee?

In the streets of Chicago a murder here and there does not mean a thing; killings and shootings are a way of life in the Windy City. So far this year there have been 390 murders and more than 2,500 shootings. Since no one keeps track of the later deaths that result from the shootings, the number of deaths is actually higher.

Draining the swamp of patent trolls

One single federal court district in a remote part of the country accounts for nearly half of all patent case filings this year. Indeed, 44 percent of patent lawsuits have been filed in the Eastern District of Texas Court thus far.

'Mr. Speaker' over the years

Now that the process of electing Paul Ryan as the Speaker of the House to replace John Boehner is over, it should be noted that the office in historical terms, in spite of the recent drama in finding a candidate, has attracted little attention.

Who's left holding the bill?

The American Revolution was something of a mockery of fact and truth. In their dispute with King George III, the revolutionaries imagined a host of grievances that were not of much substance. After all, who doesn't have some complaints regarding whomever is governing them?

Banditos in the brush

A little history of 'politically correct'

Everything "politically correct" threatens to strangle the public conversation that nurtures democracy, and the growing numbers of skeptics eager to show their righteous contempt for it might be interested to know the origins of the term, which has been revived from its original use. It's a wicked attitude intended to stifle the conscience and suppress belief and conviction.

The Clinton message

Hillary Clinton and her sidekick ought to be in pictures. They should be in the dictionary as the iconic illustration of crony capitalism. They didn't invent crony capitalism but they perfected it. Barack Obama shamelessly uses government power and largesse to promote his friends and pet projects, but he has been put in the shade of Bonny and Clod.

The folly of stoking campus racialism

Trump is wrong, wages are not too high

Milwaukee, Wisc. -- Outside the massive Milwaukee theater, venue of Tuesday's 4th Republican presidential debate, were the noisy protesters marching for a hike in the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. They held up signs chanting "Fight for $15."

Islamic State 'not contained' as Paris attacks show

Even as Islamic State terrorists carrying Syrian and Egyptian passports were moving into position last Friday morning to launch the most terrifying attack on Paris since World War II, President Obama went before the cameras on ABC's "Good Morning America" to assure George Stephanopoulos and his audience that we've "contained" ISIS.

Fossil-fuel hypocrite

President Obama recently explained his reasoning for rejecting the Keystone XL oil pipeline after seven long years of procrastination. He said he wanted to prove to the world that America will voluntarily lessen its reliance on fossil fuels to lead the international fight against climate change.

A quiet night for the Gaffe Patrol

Everybody but some of the media wise guys agrees that the fourth Republican presidential debate this week in Milwaukee was better than the MSNBC train wreck that preceded it. The practiced pontificators didn't like it because it had no fireworks, no memorable gaffes and no memorable sound bites, no throwing of shoes, eggs or lamps and with only one or two boos for questioner or candidate straying toward the unexpected.

Cross-strait peace on the line

Before 2008 the Taiwan Strait was one of the two hot spots in East Asia, another being the Korean Peninsula. Since President Ma, of the ruling Kuomintang (KMT) Party, was elected in 2008, a rapprochement has developed between Taiwan and China. The resulting peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait fits the national interests of not just Taiwan and China, but also the United States.

Lying through their teeth and their maps

When MSNBC used inaccurate and misleading maps in October to illustrate Jewish and Arab land claims in the Holy Land, it took only hours for it to admit their error. Church groups have been using the same set of maps for many years, with no sign of slowing down.
