Friday, April 22, 2016 -- Will THIS Matter, Earth Day, Fool Of The Week, Passover

Will THIS Matter?

Donald Trump has said and done a lot of things over the past year that would have driven most politicians into early retirement. But I wasn't the only one with raised eyebrows yesterday after his disturbing response to North Carolina's effort to keep men out of women's bathrooms.

Trump has a problem with...

Obama's Travesty

Barack Obama said he wanted to fundamentally transform America, and he has in many ways. From health care to energy policy, even the meaning of marriage -- much has changed since 2008. But he has also fundamentally transformed America's foreign policy -- largely to the benefit of our enemies.

Under the Obama/Kerry/Clinton foreign policy, the world has...

New York Results: The Democrats

Stung by a series of consecutive losses, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did what she HAD to do last night: She scored a decisive victory over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Sanders bet big that an upset in New York would upend the Democrat race. He reportedly outspent Clinton 2-to-1 on ads.

But in spite of the big money, big rallies and whatever...

Biden: "Israel Is Moving In Wrong Direction"

Yesterday was another day when Israelis were reminded, not that they needed to be, of how merciless their enemies are. A bomb was detonated by Palestinian terrorists on a bus in Jerusalem, wounding 21 Israelis, including women and children.

Also yesterday Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) uncovered...

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...

Thursday, April 14, 2016 -- Putin Flexes Muscles, Girls Still Gone, ISIS Threatens Muslim Democrats

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...
