Whenever a natural disaster or tragic event occurs, cartoonists are there to weigh in and present a unique perspective, often saying more with one powerful image than all the words on a […]

\r\n The trouble with politicians like Mike Huckabee is that they are surrounded by toadies who tell them how right they are. Good politicians have someone in the organization who can tell them no and make the boss think. Huckabee doesn’t…

The threat of homegrown terror is real, as the terrorist attack at Fort Hood, Texas vividly illustrated.  Today the House Committee on Homeland Security, under the Chairmanship of Congressman Peter King (R-NY), held a critically important hearing on “The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and that Community’s Response.” Predictably, the liberal media […]
