The debate about comprehensive immigration reform keeps coming up, and while efforts to pass this sweeping legislation have failed several times, it is likely to be an issue for the next session of Congress.
Looking to cash in on Dr. Ben Carson's ballooning popularity among conservatives, some independent groups are soliciting his growing fan-base for money — all without the doctor's permission.
In February and March of 1990, I had a profoundly life-changing experience. At the time, I was working for Robert J. Brown, former aide to President Richard Nixon, as a vice president for the international division of Mr. Brown's B&C Associates. But then, on Feb. 11, Nelson Mandela was released from prison after 27 years. Mr. Brown had been a friend to Mr. Mandela and his wife, Winnie, and he arranged for me to be one of the first to interview Mr. Mandela and to act as his personal secretary after his early release from prison.
Last week, America celebrated another Thanksgiving, a holiday that reminds us to be thankful both for blessings from God and for the many aspects that make this country great. There are far too many reasons to ever list, but among the latter are the virtues of creativity, an entrepreneurial spirit and a vision that gives us the ability to push the envelope and continuously redefine what is possible.
This column is dedicated in remembrance of a holiday that encourages us to take a step back in order to gain clarity and perspective when giving thanks for all the blessings we have come to adore.
Conservative columnist, commentator and entrepreneur Armstrong Williams can add broadcast ownership to his professional resume. The Federal Communications Commission has approved the sale of two local television stations in Michigan and South Carolina to Mr. Williams, a decision he has been waiting for since late February.
The Social Security Act was passed in 1935 guaranteeing retirement pensions to all Americans over the age of 65. Sounds like a good deal except for the fact that the average American life expectancy back in 1935 was 61.7 years.
Over the past few years, bullying has become a hot topic of conversation. Perhaps I should amend that: Bullying has become a hot topic in the media as it has been pushed by progressives to force mainstream acceptance of their agenda.
On a trip to Israel several years ago, I met and bonded with the Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist and award-winning author Edwin Black. He has been a guest on my TV and radio shows on several occasions. When he asked me to be a part of his new publication, "Financing the Flames," I was more than pleased and the invitation prompted me to write this piece to share his work with the world.
There are three basic arguments against Obamacare. And none relate to the catastrophic unveiling of the HealthCare.gov website in recent weeks, which has seen Americans getting 404 pages, inadvertently signing up multiple times or with multiple spouses, or unable to find out basic information on their premiums. While the website is unacceptable, a technical fix is doable (though it still should caution us about the overconfidence of government technocrats).
Watching the current debate swirling around the Washington Redskins' name, I can't help but shake my head. American Indian nicknames is a tired issue that we have heard about before. Yet something seems different this time, and much of that has to do with the liberal mainstream media jumping on the bandwagon to help fuel the fire.
Usually when two sides cannot come to an agreement, they can let an arbiter weigh their arguments and settle the dispute. Some arbiters try to find the optimum compromise, while others simply rule in favor of one side over the other.
Teaching — or at least teaching well — should be thought of as a "trade" not a "job." Those doing an everyday (or even complex) job require training, experience and steadiness to become successful. Teachers need all that as well, but it's more nuanced.
I can tell you several things that did not cause the Washington Navy Yard shootings last week: AR-15s, video games, and partisanship. On the flip side, I can tell you what contributed to the massacre: mental instability, poor security, and a failure of the vaunted background-check system.
One of the founding principles of our great republic is stated in the first line, second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal " The idea of equality governs our interactions and expectations.
"They sell each seat for God knows how much," Mr. Williams said.
