Cops put it all on the line for their communities

Outsider candidates mirror rise against mainstream media

The latest CNBC-moderated Republican primary debate provided the clearest evidence yet of how disconnected the mainstream media has become in this country. The debate was full of petty provocations, irrelevant topics (should the government regulate fantasy football really?!?), and loaded "gotcha" interrogation-style questions that bared the media's consistently liberal bias and smug disregard for the concerns of the American voting public.

No matter how she tries to bury it, email scandal will continue to haunt Clinton

Despite assertions to the contrary and her well-received Benghazi panel testimony, the controversy over Hillary Rodham Clinton's email practices is not just an issue of interest to the reporters she wishes would stop peppering her with questions about the topic. It is an issue that gets right to the heart of a vital question: Shouldn't the American people trust the person they elect to sit in the Oval Office? Published October 25, 2015

To curb Chicago violence, bring in the Nation of Islam

The situation in Chicago is so desperately broken that alternative solutions bear considering. One of the few sources of strong leadership in many of these communities is the Nation of Islam. Published October 11, 2015

On Capitol Hill, farewell to the carpenter

Muslim teen assembles a 'clock' and a dangerous PC media trap

The attacks of Sept. 11 and the scores of other attempted assaults have shown that we are right to be vigilant. But when school officials in Texas took swift security precautions to protect their students recently, they instead found themselves tarred and feathered, accused of hatred and Islamophobia.

An emboldened Iran: The other side of the nuke deal

Putting aside the debate over whether the Iran nuclear deal means nuclear weapons in the near future, let's for a moment discuss the irrefutable risk this deal imposes right now: It funds further Iranian aggression in the Middle East. Published September 20, 2015

On Labor Day, a search of the missing American worker

A striking facet of the economic downturn that started in 2008 and the "recovery" that continues today is the unprecedented slack in the American labor force.
