How Obama cooks the terrorism numbers

- The Washington Times

Barack Obama has given an eloquent testimony to a Christian faith, but his sympathies are always with Islam. He insisted from Asia that “99.9 percent of Muslims worldwide reject terrorism,” and that’s good news, if true. But it clearly is not.

No Christians and persecuted minorities allowed

Standing before the cameras in Turkey, President Obama found his safe place to indict half his countrymen for raising the issue of religion in their concern over his plan to open America’s gates to tens of thousands of Muslim “refugees” from Syria. Subjecting refugees to a religious test runs counter to American values, said Mr. Obama.

Why Wal-Mart’s protests won’t sell

For most Americans, Black Friday is the time to shop around for great deals on new Christmas gifts. For Big Labor, it’s an opportunity to steal the headlines and advance its agenda.

Where terror lurks every day

Think back to October 2002, when the Beltway sniper and his young accomplice paralyzed the Washington region for three weeks, sowing fear and keeping people from pumping gas, buying groceries, holding soccer practices or venturing from their homes. Ponder what just happened in Paris.

President Obama, a ‘tortured genius’

A U.S. Navy SEAL teammate and friend once described the worst type of leader as a “tortured genius.” By this, he did not mean the artist or musician suffering from inspired hysteria, but someone who, no matter how obvious the failing or how fair and valid the criticism, accepts no blame and denies all responsibility. In the mind of such a leader, the rest of the world simply can’t see the “genius” in what they do.

Confused about the enemy

Since the horrific Paris terror attacks, President Obama and the Democrats want you to think that defending ourselves from Islamic terrorism will only make things worse. Bombing the Islamic State, you see, will make it easier for them to recruit.

Entering the country visa-free

In the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks, Americans are more worried than ever about an attack on the United States. Their concerns are aggravated when they hear Washington debating the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), something most people had never heard of before. But it is critical to the security of our nation. The Visa Waiver Program allows visa-free entry to our country.

Selfish Protests on Campus Illustration by Greg Groesch/The Washington Times

The grievance generation

Remember the campus unrest in the 1960s? Whether you agreed with the students or not, they were protesting about things of great consequence — like civil rights, or the military draft, or the Vietnam War. They had chants like “hell no, we won’t go.” Those were the good old days.

Obamacare Punishing Middle Class Families Illustration by Greg Groesch/The Washington Times

Obamacare discriminates

Obamacare discriminates against middle-class families who buy their own health insurance, but protects tax breaks for corporations. How is this fair?

The outrage at evil begins to recede

- The Washington Times

A president in trouble can always try to change the subject, and often succeeds. It’s one of the most coveted perks of office, and Barack Obama knows it well.

The demise of academic freedom

Last week, I was attacked by so-called “diversity” groups at Yale Law School because I had accepted an invitation from a student group (providing a forum for diversity of ideas), to speak on the meaning of the Birthright provision of the 14th Amendment.

ISIS Now Has Spy Free Communications

- The Washington Times

Thanks to two Russian immigrants in Germany, who fled the Russian Federation last year after threats from the Kremlin, terrorists have access to a non-profit, social media messaging site that cannot be spied upon. In a nutshell, the service called Telegram, can deliver messages that are totally secure, can self-destruct, are delivered fast, and can be used on multiple devices.

A new tune for Bernie Sanders

Vermont's favorite Socialist has watched his early advantage over Hilary Clinton dissipate and now he thinks that maybe he isn't as tired of her "damn emails" as he thought he was. Maybe he should stick to talking about how to redistribute the nation's wealth and punish those who create jobs and economic growth.

It is most difficult to resist a book called "Trigger Mortis" and you shouldn't. Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, surely would have been delighted by this confection that recreates the hilariously bizarre and bloody times of the immortal Agent OO7, not to mention Pussy Galore.

Redemption in the South China Sea

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter is hoping to send a strong signal in the South China Sea with a visit to the USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier together with Malaysian Defense Minister Hishammuddin. But if he wants the visit to pack a real punch, he must make sure that the Obama administration gets the messaging right back in Washington — something it failed to do following last week's freedom of navigation operation (FONOP).

Remembering Jay A. Parker

Before there was Ben Carson, Herman Cain and Alan Keyes, before there was Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell, before there was Clarence Thomas and Janice Rogers Brown, there was Jay A. Parker. Jay Parker was among the first black leaders in the modern conservative movement. He passed away on September 14, 2015, in his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Debates no longer serve voters

I cannot remember the last time I watched a political debate. This is because the presidential debates long ago got transformed into a bad reality-TV show. That is a political fact of life. What amazes me is why the Republican Party would subject itself to whatever the mainstream media wants to throw at it.

How the GOP can succeed

Republican supporters are not interested in hearing 'I am a different kind of Republican,' 'I will make our country great again,' or 'I will balance the budget.'

Chinese bombshell No. 31

The unanticipated Singapore meeting Saturday of Xi Jinping, the chairman of the Communist Party and the leader of the People's Republic of China (Beijing) and Ma Ying-jeou, the chairman of the Kuomintang Party and leader of the Republic of China (Taipei) is at last an authentic bombshell in Asia.

No Big Foot for the GOP yet

There's still no clear front-runner in the Republican presidential primary campaign. For the most part, the debates have been a sideshow. And the party's strategists are worrying about a looming, election year battle in Congress over entitlement reform.

Amazingly enough, NASA will soon be hiring astronauts again, what with space flights to Mars on the far horizon, and a push to return human spaceflight launches to American soil.

Many of Charlie Chaplin's films, including "The Kid" (1921), "The Gold Rush" (1925), "Modern Times" (1936), "The Great Dictator" (1940) and "Limelight" (1952), are regarded as masterpieces. He co-founded the distribution company United Artists with D.W. Griffith, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks.
