Stand Up, Mitt: Show Us Your Spine

Stand up, Mitt. Show your spine. Show your mind. What the president has done in declaring an amnesty is wrong. It’s unconstitutional. It’s nakedly political. Call him out – clearly, strongly, decisively. Don’t let us down here. George Washington defied

Divided We Celebrate

It’s “pursuit of happiness”- not “right of happiness” – in the famous Declaration of Independence quote. That’s why to me today’s July 4th celebration takes on significance beyond the obvious. A growing number of Americans now think happiness – or

Why No Feminist Praise for 'Atlas Shrugged'?

It’s hard to make a rich man sympathetic as he battles the forces of evil from the marbled halls of palatial mansions. But the screen adaptation of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged does it. At the apparent climax of the movie,

Obama's Budget Tactics: He Wouldn't Dare, Or Would He?

Would Obama veto a bill to continue soldiers’ pay? My daughter called almost in tears Friday morning as the budget fight was still in limbo. My son-in-law, an army Captain and veteran of Afghanistan, is preparing for deployment to Iraq

Stay Out of Libya

It’s a complicated situation. Gaddafi is part of the Islamic extremism that targets the U.S. – but largely at his whim. He probably ordered the bombing of Pan Am flight 103, killing over 250, including Americans. Reagan immediately bombed his

Sleepwalking Through History: Is A New War Around the Corner?

As Congressman Peter King ended hearings on a pertinent subject, danger signs are everywhere. Like Europe in the 1930s, America is sleepwalking towards world war. Our leaders and most of the mainstream press overlook or excuse them, or admonish those

I doubt Tuesday night’s PBS show on the Kennedys said anything about their father’s alleged bootlegging, anti-Semitism, or pro-Nazi defeatism early in World War II. I tuned in too late to see the beginning of “The Kennedy’s: America’s Emerald Kings.”

Never Forget: Remembering 9/11 for the Horror It Was

I watched the National Geographic documentary on 9/11. I wondered if there would be any PC (politically correct) parts stressing diversity, peaceful Islam, or moralizing about how we had caused the shocking attack. There was none. It was some of

Obama's Speech: Few Practical Solutions to Problems

I was surprised. The president praised the military in what seemed a sincere recognition of their accomplishment in Iraq as we wind down our involvement there. Instead of the vague and confusing term “terrorist,” he actually named some of the

Hiroshima

Today is the 65th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima in 1945. That bomb, and a second dropped on Nagasaki three days later, ended World War II. Inevitably, liberals will use the occasion to reflect on how cruel, unjust

Military Insubordination or Administrative Incompetence?

The important issue prompted by the current Rolling Stone article isn’t Gen. McChrystal’s defiance or rank insubordination. It’s the announced deadline for troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, an insane move that guarantees defeat, as well as other war-losing moves. Would you
