Thomas Sowell: Do Emotions Trump Facts?

More hope and change may be coming.    Those of us who like to believe that human beings are rational can sometimes have a hard time trying to explain what is going on in politics. It is still a puzzle to me how millions of patriotic Americans could have voted in 2008 for a man who for 20 years — TWENTY YEARS — was a follower of a preacher who  ... MORE

Obama Is Close To Achieving His Empty Legacy

by Charles Krauthammer.     Last week, Barack Obama gained the second jewel in his foreign policy triple crown: the Paris climate accord. It follows his Iran nuclear deal and awaits but the closing of Guantanamo to complete his glittering legacy. To be sure, Obama will not be submitting the climate agreement for Senate ratification. It would have no  ... MORE

Barry Farber: Hillary Clinton Is A Comfortable Liar

Some lies are defensible, others not-so-much.   He was furious, a radio listener calling in rage because I’d said that lying was sometimes permissible in government. I may even have said a president who refuses ever to lie should be impeached. That’s not my favorite argument, but I don’t shirk from it. Imagine a president confronted with a         ... MORE

Andrew C. McCarthy: GOP CAN Stop The Iran Nuke Deal

Ingenious.  To undermine President Obama’s atrocious Iran deal despite the Republican-controlled Congress’s irresponsible Corker legislation, it will be necessary to follow, of all things, the Corker legislation. On Wednesday, Barbara Mikulski became the 34th Senate Democrat to announce support for the deal, which lends aid and comfort to a   ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: A Historic Catastrophe

Enabling nuclear bombs to radical Islam.  Distinguished scientist Freeman Dyson has called the 1433 decision of the emperor of China to discontinue his country’s exploration of the outside world the “worst political blunder in the history of civilization.” The United States seems at this moment about to break the record for the worst political   ...

Peter Ferrara: President Obama’s Nuclear Surrender

Iran to get nuclear weapons, while America loses them. Remember President Obama’s Obamacare promise that if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan? That turned out to be you can keep your health care plan if Obama likes your health care plan, as millions of Americans lost their health care plans they    ... MORE

The Worst U.S. Government: Here And Now

by Barry Farber.    “Your computer gypped me out of $80 this week,” the worker complained to the boss. “I’ll look into it,” the boss promised. A day later the boss said to the worker, “You’re right. Our computer did cheat you out of $80 this week. But that same computer gave you $80 too much the week before last. Isn’t that true?” “Yes,” admitted    ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: The Iran 'Agreement' Charade

Throwing Israel to the wolves.      By abandoning virtually all its demands for serious restrictions on Iran's nuclear bomb program, the Obama administration has apparently achieved the semblance of a preliminary introduction to the beginning of a tentative framework for a possible hope of an eventual agreement with Iran. But even this   ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Etiquette Versus Annihilation

The negotiations of a fool.  Recent statements from United Nations officials, that Iran is already blocking their existing efforts to keep track of what is going on in their nuclear program, should tell anyone who does not already know it that any agreement with Iran will be utterly worthless in practice. It doesn't matter what the terms of the agreement   ... MORE

Andrew Napolitano: Amendment By Consent

WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?   Here is a short pop quiz. When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed Congress earlier this month about the parameters of the secret negotiations between the United States and Iran over nuclear weapons and economic sanctions, how did he know what the negotiators were considering? Israel is not a party to    ... MORE

Matt Welch: Means-Testing Everything But Government

Washington's phantom austerity.   Here's just how stubborn the growth of government is: Even after a Democratic president wins office by campaigning until Election Eve on a "net spending cut," even after he gives his first proposed budget the humblebragging title of "A New Era of Responsibility," even after both Barack Obama and Federal      ...

Police Union Intimidates California City Council

Shameless tactics by law enforcement unions. Many people were outraged this summer after a private investigator, with ties to a law firm that represents 120 police unions in California, made an apparently false report to the cops claiming that a councilman in the Orange County, California, city of Costa Mesa stumbled out of a bar drunk and  ...
