National Candidates React to Giuliani

National Candidates React to Giuliani

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Rudy Giuliani made comments about Obama’s dislike for America without much media attention. But his comments in February, as we discussed yesterday, were made in the presence of a presidential candidate, Scott Walker, who refused to criticize Giuliani’s remark. “The mayor can speak for himself,” Walker told a [...]

Defending New Jersey’s Politicians

Defending New Jersey’s Politicians

BY ALAN CARUBA I'd be surprised to learn that anyone in the Obama and Holder Department of Justice even knows how to spell “justice.” On the same day it announced an indictment of New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez (D) for allegedly taking bribes and engaging in various forms of corruption, it also announced that it would not pursue a [...]

Obama Publicly Insults Christians

Obama Publicly Insults Christians

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY In the first week of February, the Islamic State released a video showing a Jordanian pilot being burned alive in a steel cage. The next day, the United Nations issued a report describing scary details of the Islamic state’s “mass executions of boys, as well as reports of beheadings, crucifixions of children, and burying [...]

The Worst U.S. President Ever!

The Worst U.S. President Ever!

BY ALAN CARUBA I won’t be around to see it, but I have little doubt that future historians and others will conclude that President Barack Hussein Obama was the worst President ever to serve in that office. The reason is simple enough. His decisions on domestic and foreign affairs have already demonstrated his astonishing incompetence. His [...]

The Great Deceivers: Obama, Mary Landrieu and the Democrats

The Great Deceivers: Obama, Mary Landrieu and the Democrats

LLOYD MARCUS, PROUD UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN Stop urinating on us and telling us it is raining. Please forgive me for using a crude saying. However, it perfectly and succinctly describes what Obama, Mary Landrieu and the Democrats have been doing to Americans, particularly blacks, for a very long time; until we stop them. In their remarkable [...]

Liberated Women and the Traditional Family

Liberated Women and the Traditional Family

BY ALAN CARUBA My generation, born in the late 1930s and the 1940s, has witnessed a dramatic change in the role and the rights of women in America. A significant result of the women’s liberation movement is a change in the role of traditional marriage that was reported in early September. “If you count a generation as spanning 20 [...]

War as a Fact of Life

War as a Fact of Life

BY ALAN CARUBA Younger generations can be forgiven if all they know of war is what they have learned in school or seen dramatized on film and television. For most Americans, the Civil War, the two World Wars, and the conflicts in Korea and Vietnam are events that occurred “a long time ago.” For my generation, born just prior to or during [...]

America, Our Debt-Ridden Nation

America, Our Debt-Ridden Nation

BY ALAN CARUBA Let’s look at just some of the latest news about the U.S. economy: # According to the Treasury Department’s Bureau of Fiscal Services, the federal government paid $2,007,358,200,000—over $2 trillion—in benefits and entitlements in the 2013 fiscal year, October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013. Most of the benefits, 69.7% [...]

The Obama Administration’s Slow-Motion Surrender to Jihad

The Obama Administration’s Slow-Motion Surrender to Jihad

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ If there’s one political silver lining for the Obama administration in the ongoing firestorm over handing the Taliban a substantial victory to retrieve a probable American deserter, it’s that the pundit class has been all but ignoring the supreme foolishness of administration policy in Palestine. Is the State Department [...]

Lawmaker: Obama-Clinton State Department “Misled Congress” Downplaying Boko Haram Danger

Lawmaker: Obama-Clinton State Department “Misled Congress” Downplaying Boko Haram Danger

MATTHEW CLARK, ACLJ A key Senator is alleging that the Clinton State Department “mislead Congress” about the impending danger of Boko Haram and the State Department’s inability (read: unwillingness) to label the radical jihadist group a terrorist organization years ago. Senator Vitter (LA) has written Secretary of State Kerry a [...]

The Difference Between Rescue and Ransom

The Difference Between Rescue and Ransom

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ One of the most extraordinary and costly rescues in American history occurred in April 1972, after Iceal “Gene” Hambleton’s electronics-warfare plane (call sign “Bat 21”) was shot down at the onset of the North Vietnamese Army’s Easter offensive. When he had been stuck behind enemy lines for more than a week, the [...]

Americans the Obama Administration Will Leave Behind

Americans the Obama Administration Will Leave Behind

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ It sickens me that the Obama administration has been justifying ransoming terrorist leaders for a probable deserter by reciting the creed that America never leaves a man behind. The Obama administration frequently leaves men (and even children) to suffer and die, with minimal apparent effort on their behalf. A partial [...]

Don’t Give Away the Internet

Don’t Give Away the Internet

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Giving away the Internet is a key part of Barack Obama’s plan to diminish America’s power and prestige in the world. He wants to spread around world power to our enemies as well as to our friends, just as he seeks to spread the wealth around in our country. Obama’s defenders argue that his action is just part of a plan [...]

A Matter of Honor: Why So Many Soldiers Are Angry at the Bergdahl Deal

A Matter of Honor: Why So Many Soldiers Are Angry at the Bergdahl Deal

DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ I’ve spent the last two weeks on vacation — the first real family vacation since shortly after I returned home from Iraq in 2008 — and I tried as much as I could to truly “unplug.” When the Bergdahl deal was announced, however, I failed utterly. The story infuriated me. Other writers at NRO have articulated the [...]

The Four Biggest Delusions of Obama’s West Point Speech

The Four Biggest Delusions of Obama’s West Point Speech

Daniel Kochis, HERITAGE FOUNDATION President Obama’s speech last week to graduates of West Point was supposed to highlight the success of the administration’s foreign policy and lay out a vision of American engagement for the remainder of the president’s time in office. Success at this proved hard to come by. As Heritage’s Nile [...]
