Muslims to soon beat out Jews in U.S. population

There are about 3.35 million Muslims in the United States right now, according to recent Pew Research Center's Factank figures. But by 2050, that particular population is projected to grow -- from about 1 percent of the U.S. population to about 2.1 percent. If it does, that means America will be home to more Muslims than Jews. Just something to think about, post New York City terror attack -- a terror attack that we now know was committed by a radicalized Muslim who professed allegiance to ISIS. Published November 1, 2017

Donald Trump: 'Enough!' No more ISIS in America

President Donald Trump reacted to the terror truck attack in New York City with a stiff pledge to keep ISIS out of this country. He also slammed political correctness, a not-so-thinly veiled shot at the left that's constantly devalued and derided his border controls. Can we get an amen from the Democratic Party's many amnesty lovers, please? Published November 1, 2017

Fox News' Tucker Carlson and the curious Podesta 'snarling legal threat'

As Alice in Wonderland might say -- the trail of Robert Mueller's dog-sniffing into President Donald Trump-Russia collusion allegations keeps growing curiouser and curiouser. The latest is Fox News host Tucker Carlson said his cable network's reporting on the ties of the Podesta Group with Russia grew so hot that an attorney for Tony Podesta sent a "snarling legal threat." Transparency, anyone? Published October 31, 2017

Let's be honest: Putin would've wanted Clinton, not Trump, in the first place

Honestly, if Vladimir Putin were given the pick, who do you think he would've wanted in the White House in the first place, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump? Savvy deal-making, self-interested Hillary? Or "Make America Great Again" and "America First" Trump? The smart money says Clinton, and so do the cooler heads and logical minds.

John Kelly's right; Robert E. Lee was 'honorable'

John Kelly, chief of staff for President Donald Trump, went on national television and called out the rampant removal of America's historical monuments from the public arenas as despicable, and -- bravely -- spoke of Robert E. Lee as an "honorable man." Let the howling from the left begin. Published October 31, 2017

Hillary Clinton, breathing easy now, hints at Trump impeachment

Hillary Clinton may not be running for any particular political seat right now, but she sure does know how to sling a political punch -- and boy, is she taking advantage of this Paul Manafort indictment thing. She's like that kid that hangs with the playground bully, coming in after the beating's been administered with a sharp kick to the guy on the ground, a "take that" jab when the guy's rendered defenseless.

Jesse Jackson, ever the opportunist, goes after NFL's Bob McNair

Well, as just about everybody knows, no social justice campaign would truly be complete without an appearance from the Rev. Jesse Jackson. So now, here he comes, weighing in on the whole NFL anti-national anthem kneeling thang -- finding racism, as he's wont to do, where no racism actually exists. Published October 31, 2017

Paul Manafort, Rick Gates and the media frenzy of anti-Trumpism

Paul Manafort surrendered to Robert Mueller on Monday. And all the media go: President Donald Trump is going down! Too bad the press couldn't be as gung-ho when it came to investigating Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and a little thing called Uranium One. Published October 30, 2017

Houston Texans find new fake cause to kneel

After months of kneeling over the national anthem -- and in protest of supposed targeted police brutality against blacks -- football's finest in on-field showboating have finally found a new cause: offensiveness at their team owner's remarks. The possibilities of this type of protesting -- and by this type, it's meant, fabricated and fake -- are endless, it seems. Published October 30, 2017

John Boehner, unleashed, speaks of knife attack by fellow lawmaker

John Boehner, of former House Majority Speaker fame, dropped a bombshell -- or dozens -- during an interview with Politico that was just published. For instance, did you know that fellow Republican Rep. Don Young once pinned Boehner against a wall and held a knife to his throat during a debate about earmarks that went awry? Nope. I did not, either. Published October 30, 2017

Tom Steyer, totally anti-Trump, 'totally unhinged,' to be totally ineffective

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to blast millionaire Democrat and megadonor Tom Steyer as "wacky & totally unhinged" for spending big on an impeachment campaign against the commander-in-chief. "Totally unhinged" might be a bit of an understatement. Add spendthrift to that list -- wacky, unhinged and totally wasteful, too. Published October 27, 2017

George H.W. Bush, of 'David Cop-A-Feel' groping fame

A third woman has come forward to claim the former president, George H.W. Bush, inappropriately grabbed her body during a public event. Who does Bush think he is -- Joe Biden? He's becoming the creepy Joe of the Republican Party. Published October 27, 2017

Saudi's creepy new robot woman a Wahhabi dream come true

Saudi Arabia just granted citizenship to a human-looking robot named Sophia. Great. Now about those women's rights ... Is this the new Wahhabi way of controlling its female population -- by building a new one? Published October 27, 2017

Kellogg's racist Corn Pops boondoggle

Kellogg's Corn Pops is going through a redesign because, apparently, the little pop characters showcased on its boxes are racist. Or, more to truth: one pop. That's right. A single, solitary brownish looking pop among the sea of golden-yellow pops has sparked a firestorm. And by firestorm, we mean a complaint. Published October 26, 2017

Tom Coburn's turn: Yet another GOPer goes anti-Trump

This is getting a bit ridiculous. First, Sen. Bob Corker. Then, Sen. Jeff Flake. Always and forever, Sen. John McCain. And now? Former Sen. Tom Coburn has taken up the anti-Donald Trump wheel and rolled it right into the hallways of The New York Times to bash this president. Published October 26, 2017

Hillary Clinton, what did she know and when did she know it

It's not illegal for key players in the Barack Obama administration to give the OK to the sale of American uranium to Russia. But why does it seem that whenever something seedy comes up in politics, Hillary Clinton's name emerges? Published October 26, 2017
