Thank you for taking a minute from watching the omnipresent anti-war protests to read this column. Thousands of people from San Francisco to Long Island joined arm in arm, singing “Give Peace a Chance.” Passionate stirring of the masses with outrage that our President would go to war in the Middle East with no declaration […]

Science isn’t like religion in that you can’t just pick and choose the science you don’t concur with. You can’t, say, believe in evolution, but not for species you think are gross. Or think gravity is a sound theory but it only pertains to left-handed Oregonians. Or accept atomic theory but only for people named […]

Independent’s Eye by Joe Gandelman Does the “civilized” world have what it takes to defeat the self-declared Islamic State, otherwise known as ISIS? To be sure, the U.S. has launched air strikes on ISIS targets over Iraq, Congress and President Barack Obama finally seem in gear, and there are ongoing efforts to put together a […]

An incredible thing happened in the recent reply-comment period regarding the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) proposal to regulate the Internet like old-fashioned monopoly telephone service: the side telling the agency not to regulate carried the day. The radical left, demanding federal regulatory control of the building blocks of Internet, brought all the usual hype and […]

Making Sense by Michael Reagan Domestic violence just doesn’t happen on elevators. And it’s not just committed by former NFL running backs. But don’t tell that to the people who’ve been calling for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to quit over his fumbling of the Ray Rice case. Based on what’s been on TV all week, […]

Ever since four brave Americans were killed by Islamic terrorists in Benghazi, Libya two years ago, many questions have been raised about what then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew before, during, and after the fact.  A shocking article by former CBS News investigative reporter Sheryl Attkisson published in The Daily Signal sheds light on what […]

Dec. 7, 1941: An aide enters the Oval Office with grim news for President Barack Obama. “Mr. President, the Japanese have attacked Pearl Harbor! We have sustained severe damage to our naval and military forces. More than 2,400 Americans are dead.” “Ah, phooey. I had a tee time set for this afternoon.” “Sir, the world […]

There are a lot of offensive ways to observe 9/11. A yoga studio near DC offered a 20 percent off sale (“9 + 11 = 20 PERCENT OFF!”), and a sex toy company soberly tweeted remembrance of “those lost, & honor those still fighting for freedom.” But the most off-putting way to remember the terrorist […]

One of the dumbest points of contention in modern politics is the Big Government vs. Small Government one. It’s a fake debate, only meaningful to the privileged: investors, business executives and their cronies. To everyday Americans it’s a lofty, largely academic concept. Yet we’ve been duped into caring about it. Do the Iraqi people note […]

Miraculously, President Obama has conjured a strategy to wipe the Islamic State from the face of the Earth! Just two weeks after confessing he had “no strategy” for dealing with this formidable terrorist organization, he is dribbling out pieces of his “comprehensive” plan. First of all, someone should tell the President that this caliphate of […]
