Obama’s unilateral action on immigration will hurt the black community immeasurably, and yet the so-called “black leadership” doesn’t speak out.
Barack Obama put the cat among the pigeons Thursday night, but he may be surprised by how big that cat could get, and with it a big cat’s appetite for more than pigeons.Shares
At a time when many Republicans have embraced a “don’t ask, don’t tell” approach to same-sex marriage (“Don’t ask me what my position is because I won’t tell you”), Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas has proposed a characteristically audacious solution to judicial assaults on traditional marriage: a constitutional amendment.Shares
Our nation is in the final stages of a sweeping and historic social transformation that just 10 years ago seemed improbable at best.Shares

For all intents and purposes, Barack Obama's scandal-filled, deeply unpopular presidency is effectively over.
This book explodes in its opening chapter with a gruesome murder at a race track, concludes with an express train demolishing a victim at 100 miles an hour and vibrates on intervening pages with the thunder of horses' hooves.
The bull market could easily run equities up another 25 percent—even against the backdrop of slower economic growth abroad.
I have a suggestion for my left-wing Democratic friends in light of all the controversy over Obamacare. That the controversy continues all these years after the bill's passage and that today much of the bill is in danger of amputation must be very dispiriting to those left-wingers who had such high hopes for it.
The takedown of Bill Cosby, from an attack of a comedian to allegations of sexual assault by a string of women, vividly illustrates the toxic mix of social media and irresponsible journalism.
Earlier this week, President Obama made it clear that he will soon offer some form of limited amnesty to about five million foreign nationals who are currently living illegally in the United States. He will do so by issuing an executive order to federal officials who oversee immigration directing them to undertake a course of action that, if complied with individually by all persons whom he designates as eligible, will cause the federal government to remove the threat of deportation from those who meet the standards he will lay down.
Republicans have no shortage of ideas for fixing America's immigration system and no lack of good will toward those who would come here for opportunity and freedom. What we do need, urgently, is to restore the bonds of trust — between the people and their government, and between the institutions we depend on to maintain the rule of law.
If Aesop were here he might rewrite his famous fable, replacing the boy who cried "wolf!" with the girl who cried "rape!" The cry of "rape" is used so carelessly that it's often impossible to get to the truth of an accusation. When rape was a capital offense it was a rare and vicious crime which required a court of law to apply justice. It was underreported, since the rapist usually took advantage of those who felt too vulnerable even to say anything about it.
In the fall of 1764, George Whitefield, itinerant evangelical preacher, gave a commencement sermon at Princeton University, then a place of evangelical learning which he described as a "blessed nursery, one of the purest in the universe." Many readers will gawk and chuckle at the idea of an evangelical pastor giving a commencement address at one of today's elite colleges. So far from being flower beds of spiritual growth, the Ivies are today distinguished by secularism and outright contempt for orthodox, confessional Christianity. Were Whitefield to preach on an elite campus today, he would be regarded as a retrograde bigot.
Russia and China are pushing the U.S. into a currency crisis.
Some god-like public entertainers are losing their mythical status.
Phil Gramm, an avid waterfowler, and I were sitting in a duck blind on Maryland's Eastern Shore waiting for the birds to fly and discussing conservatism, politics and the Senate. After analyzing a few of his colleagues, the senator from Texas asked me, "What are the four most dangerous words a senator can utter on the Senate floor?"
President Obama and the Democrats are in a state of deep denial about the message the voters sent to Washington in the midterm elections.
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."
Jonathan Gruber set off a firestorm of controversy, at least in the conservative media, with the recent revelation of his comments about the "stupidity of the American people," which allowed the Affordable Care Act to be passed.
