I know a fellow from Lebanon who is more American than most Americans. In 1977, when I was 14, I rode my bike, played ball with my friends and enjoyed a safe and happy American existence. During that same year at the same age, the Lebanese fellow I now know was dragging dead bodies into […]

As the world was focused on a royal wedding this past weekend, in Vatican City the blessed Pope John Paul II was beatified in front of 1.5 million people from all over the world.  The last step before sainthood, beatification is bestowed on the holiest of people and marks the day that he or she […]

By now, everyone knows that Osama Bin Laden, mastermind of the 9/11 tragedy, has been killed in Pakistan in an operation conducted by American military forces and the CIA. Cartoonists have been gunning for the reclusive terrorist for years, and have drawn many, many cartoons about him. Check out some of the best cartoons drawn […]

Raging Moderate by Will Durst Goaded into action by a nattering of numbskulls, Barack Obama finally released the long form of his certificate of live birth from the state of Hawaii, and hopefully threw the last shovel of dirt onto this inception nonsense; but the suspicion is, no, probably not. As we speak, vanquished Birther […]

The argument that President Obama is being treated unfairly or differently than previous presidents when it comes to the voluntary disclosure of non-public records is absurd.  This false narrative is simply an attempt to distract from the indisputable fact that the President and his team handled this entire sorry episode like a pack of amateurs, […]

Wednesday night was the most riveting reality TV I’ve seen in years. Talk about genuine breaking news.

They knew it was a deadly […]

Tomorrow’s the big day. Prince William will marry commoner Kate Middleton in a ceremony full of pomp and circumstance that has pushed the British monarchy in front of us all, thanks to our ever-loving media that has been covering every minute detail leading up to the big event. Cartoonists have their own thoughts about those […]

Barack Obama was born in the United States. He is officially an American. The President released his long-form birth certificate today in reaction to increasing calls, let by loud-mouthed clown and GOP front-runner Donald Trump, that he was somehow born on foreign land and not eligible to be our commander-in-chief. Trump has latched onto this […]

That President Barack Hussein Obama, what a tease! He strings the lunatics along toying with them for two-and-a-half years, and then just when they’re whipped into a frenzy, he releases his birth certificate. LOL! I was going to draw the Donald (the “carnival barker” Obama called him) in this cartoon, but decided that it’s hard […]

We’ve heard a lot of pep-talks recently that it might be time to for Americans to reduce their living standards and expectations in order to accept the “New Normal” that is inevitable if Washington’s reckless spending spree on the taxpayer’s dime continues. It’s difficult to grasp the notion that citizens are expected to go without […]
