Benghazi Bombshell

There is new evidence connecting the White House to the Benghazi scandal. Documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch uncovered an email from White House Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes labeled "PREP CALL."

In it Rhodes outlined the goals the Obama White House had for then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice during her upcoming Sunday talk show appearances. One goal listed was "to underscore that...

Kerry's Kerfuffle

As we reported yesterday, while Israelis were in the midst of somber observances for Holocaust Remembrance Day, news broke that Secretary of State John Kerry had said that Israel was at risk of becoming an "apartheid state" unless it acquiesced to the creation of a Palestinian state.

That was is an incredibly offensive comment given the historical background of the modern state of Israel. The modern Jewish state emerged in 1948 out of the ashes...

Remembering And A Warning

All over Israel this morning, everybody and everything stopped. Each year on Holocaust Remembrance Day the Jewish state observes two minutes of silence to remember the horror and to pledge "Never again."

Unbelievably, as Israelis were preparing for Remembrance Day, Secretary of State John Kerry warned that Israel could become...

Also Washington is buzzing with reports that Vladimir Putin has broken off all talks with the White House and that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel cannot get his phone calls to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu returned. Let's see what the weekend brings, but Obama's weakness may just push us into a war that nobody wants.

Rand Paul On Life

Virtually every conservative activist I talk to or hear from is sick of RINOs -- Republicans In Name Only -- who will not fight for the values the party represents. A lot of well-meaning conservatives think Senator Rand Paul is THE guy for 2016. But if any of them care about values issues, they should think twice.

Senator Paul was interviewed this week by David Axelrod at the University of Chicago's Institute of Politics. Not surprisingly,...

Wrestling With Race

Yesterday, to the chagrin of the Obama Administration and leftists everywhere, the Supreme Court handed down a principled decision on the use of race as a criterion for college admissions. By a surprising 6-to-2 vote the court upheld the right of Michigan voters to eliminate a practice euphemistically known as affirmative action. In 2006, 58% of Michigan voters approved a constitutional amendment stopping race-based admissions.

I use the term "...

Traditional Marriage A Winning Issue

Are social conservatives’ views unpopular?

Left-leaning political commentators, Democratic Party operatives and the Republican establishment constantly advise the GOP to drop social conservatives’ issues from the party’s platform. Today American Values, along with Family Research Council, released the results of a commissioned national survey conducted by Wilson Research Strategies showing that 82 percent of Republican and...

The Leftwing Billionaire Who “Owns” Obama

Last week, the Obama Administration announced that it has again delayed a final decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline. The administration seems to understand how unpopular the delay will be—it made the announcement last Friday, while most Americans were focused on Passover and Easter. It is now highly unlikely that a final decision will be made before the mid-term elections in November.

Building the pipeline is...

Why We Celebrate

As most of you know, the persecution of Christians around the world has reached levels not seen since the early days of the church. In fact, according to a recent report by Reuters, the number of Christian martyrs doubled between 2012 and 2013.

Recently, American Values, my public policy organization, traveled to the Middle East to learn more about how our brothers and sisters in Christ are suffering at the hands of Muslim extremists....

The Culture War Comes To Dartmouth

Dartmouth College, one of America's premier institutions of higher learning, appears to be struggling with the wreckage of the left's cultural agenda. Dartmouth's president, Philip J. Hanlon, delivered a scathing speech last night ripping into the student body for its bad behavior.

Noting a federal investigation for sexual assaults, fraternity and sorority parties with "racist and sexist undertones," and a 14% drop in...
