Iran: Wisdom Calls for a Tough Policy

By Ken Blackwell

ken-blackwellJohn F. Kennedy famously said: “We cannot negotiate with people who say what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable.”

50 years later, we seem not to have learned this lesson.

Just several weeks ago we concluded negotiations with a bad faith partner in the form of the Islamic Republic of Iran, resulting in a nuclear agreement that has been met with skepticism by our Saudi allies and with fury by Israel. Continue Reading.

Jorge Ramos Wins “Victim Apprentice”

By Katie Kieffer

katie-kiefferCongratulations to Univision’s Jorge Ramos on winning Victim Apprentice! You succeeded in pouting and shouting your way to the spotlight.

Victim Apprentice is a real reality show hosted by Donald Trump—without Trump realizing he’s hosting it. Contestants are C-level celebrities who crave attention but lack talent. Desperate for a career boost, they metaphorically throw themselves in front of Trump’s car as he cruises down the highway—forcing him to slam on the breaks and bump into them. Continue Reading.

Blame the Fed for Stock Market Crash

By Ron Paul

ron-paulFollowing Monday’s historic stock market downturn, many politicians and so-called economic experts rushed to the microphones to explain why the market crashed and to propose “solutions” to our economic woes. Not surprisingly, most of those commenting not only failed to give the right answers, they failed to ask the right questions. Continue Reading.

Letter to a Friend: ‘Harsh Immigration’ Is Not Why Latinos Hate Republicans

By Larry Elder

larry-elderDear Larry: Geez, I cannot fathom the polls that have Donald Trump leading. Either a lot of Republicans are just frustrated or stupid, or both — and they want a bomb-thrower. Or it is pro-Hillary Clinton Democrats voting in those polls. Trump is ruining the race for the serious Republican candidates and thereby helping Hillary immensely.

Democrats must be loving his clown act. It deflects attention from Hillary’s emails. Over time, Trump has donated more money to Democratic candidates than Republican candidates. Does he have any positions other than the one on immigration? At least from the news clips I’ve seen, I have not heard any. All he does is harp on immigration — building a wall and deporting 11 million people (um, sure) — and says really nasty things about the other Republican candidates. He is just loathsome and seriously hurting the party. — I despair. — Darrell Continue Reading.

What Is Obama’s Top Population-Control Freak Hiding?

By Michelle Malkin Scoop

michelle-malkinThe most transparent administration in American history is at it again — dodging sunlight and evading public disclosure.

Joining former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her secret servers, former IRS witch hunt queen Lois Lerner and her secret email accounts, former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and her Internet alter egos, and former Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and his non-public email account is White House science czar John Holdren. Continue Reading.

Small But Honest Columnist Again Forced to Correct Highest-Rated Show on Cable TV

By Ann Coulter

ann-coulter33To support his insane interpretation of the post-Civil War amendments as granting citizenship to the kids of illegal aliens, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly is now taking job applications for the nonexistent — but dearly hoped-for — Jeb! administration, live, during his show.

(Apparently my debate with O’Reilly will be conducted in my column, Twitter feed and current bestselling book, Adios, America, against the highest-rated show on cable news.) Continue Reading.

Sorting the Candidates

By Thomas Sowell

thomas-sowellDespite a nuclear Iran looming on the horizon, the media seem to be putting most of their attention on two candidates for their respective parties’ presidential nominations next year. Moreover, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump each make their own party nervous.

If next year’s election comes down to Clinton versus Trump, a lot of people may simply stay home in disgust.

When we are this far away from the official start of the primary election season, we can usually just say, “It’s still early days.” Many a front runner this early in the process ended up out of the running by the time the party conventions were held, and totally forgotten by election day. Continue Reading.

Women Still Don’t Belong in Combat

By Phyllis Schlafly

phyllis-schlaflyUnexpected events reveal uncomfortable truths about human nature, as demonstrated by two nearly simultaneous events on opposite sides of the world last Friday. In Fort Benning, Georgia, a large press contingent turned out to applaud and photograph the first two women ever to complete Ranger School, the Army’s toughest training course, which even most men are unable to finish. Continue Reading.

Heroism, American-Style

By Debra J. Saunders

debra-saundersEditor’s Note: The following column is by Froma Harrop.

Every country has its heroes, but something in America’s cultural sauce makes for a unique and unusually effective variety. The ingredient would be improvisation — the ability to perform without preparation, using whatever is at hand to complete the task.

As most of the world knows, Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler — three pals on a European jaunt — were on a fancy train hurtling toward Paris, when a terrorist bristling with weaponry started attacking passengers. Continue Reading.

Illegal Immigration is the Disease and Trump’s Plan is the Cure

By John Hawkins

john-hawkinsDemocrats want unlimited illegal immigration because they believe it will help permanently cement them in power. On the other hand, many Republican politicians also want unlimited illegal immigration because they’re getting huge campaign contributions from businesses that want to profit from illegals while passing the costs on to the American people.

Of course, the Republicans can’t admit that; so the GOP uses its perpetual poor performance with Hispanics to justify its support for amnesty. The only problem is that the evidence has shown time and time again that illegal immigration isn’t what’s turning Hispanic voters off to the GOP. Continue Reading.
