Monday, April 18, 2016 -- The Saudis & 9/11, Riyadh's Threats, The United States v. Texas

The Saudis & 9/11

There is legislation pending in Congress that is creating an international uproar. The bill is called the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act and it would allow victims of terrorism "to sue foreign states and financial partners of terrorism."

That seems reasonable enough. Who could possibly object? Well, our Saudi "friends" for starters and the Obama...

Friday, April 15, 2016 -- Tax Day, Washington Waste, The IRS, Hillary's Taxing Plans

Tax Day

Today is April 15th. As you know, this is the day when most of us would normally file our taxes. This year, we get a short reprieve -- tax filings are not technically due until Monday, thanks to a holiday observed in the District of Columbia.

Many conservatives view April 15th as "Democrat Bailout Day" -- the day Democrats get more money to pay for their failed big government programs. Doesn...

Putin Flexes Muscles

Russian President Vladimir Putin is flexing his muscles again. Two days this week Russian aircraft buzzed a U.S. destroyer conducting drills in the Baltic Sea.

On Monday, two Russian SU-24 fighter jets made several "close-range and low altitude passes" over the USS Donald Cook as it was conducting deck landing helicopter drills. The Russian harassment continued the next...

Trump Stumped

For several days now, Donald Trump has been hitting a theme of corruption within the political system. It is a popular message. He is astutely telling his cheering supporters, many of whom already believe they have been cheated economically by the Washington establishment, that they are now being cheated politically -- that their preferred choice is being denied delegates...

Ryan Rules Out A Run

Speaker Paul Ryan tried again this afternoon to squash speculation that he might be a presidential candidate this fall. Speaking at the Republican National Committee headquarters moments ago, Ryan said, "Let me be clear: I do not want, nor will I accept the Republican nomination."

Addressing the delegates directly, Speaker Ryan said, "If no...

Political Update

There were a number of significant developments in the 2016 campaign in the past few days. Here are some highlights:

·  Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders extended his winning streak over the weekend. He took 56% of the vote in Saturday's Wyoming caucuses. But it didn't do him much good. It appears Sanders will at best split Wyoming's delegates with Hillary Clinton...

Changing Tone, Not Teaching

The media are all atwitter over the release of a new document from Pope Francis on the family. The paper, "On Love In The Family," is the result of two meetings (synods) between the pope and the world's Catholic bishops.

Those on the left hoping that the pope would upend more than a thousand years of traditional Christian teaching on...

Obama's Priorities

We all know the anxiety level in the country is sky high. There is tremendous economic insecurity. Obama's foreign policy is failing us. Our alliances are frayed.

Recent polls find that two-thirds of Americans think the country is on the wrong track, nearly as many say their values are under attack, and 57% feel like they are falling further and further behind. There appears...

Wisconsin Results: The Democrats

Before yesterday's voting began, Senator Bernie Sanders had a narrow lead in the polls -- 48% to 45% for Hillary Clinton. Evidently, Wisconsin voters were feeling the Bern! Last night, Sanders won not by three points, but by 14 points -- 57% to 43%.

Sanders clearly has what is called "the big Mo" -- momentum. He has won six of the last...

Clinton's Extremism

After Donald Trump made headlines last week for his evolving views on abortion, Hillary Clinton got her turn to discuss the issue yesterday on NBC's "Meet The Press." Consider this exchange between Clinton and "Meet The Press" host Chuck Todd:

TODD: When, or if, does an unborn...
