Beyond the appeals to anti-Muslim xenophobia that have defined the Republican Party’s post-Paris consensus, the most recent GOP primary debate was an elaborate group sermon on the importance of being afraid. As Jeet Heer wrote in his after-analysis of the debate, the candidates “spoke of an America under
6 Takeaways from the New Hampshire Debate
On the eve of Saturday’s debate, the Democratic race was, albeit briefly, roiled by news that Sanders’ campaign staffers had accessed the Clinton campaign’s voter data. The revelation led to a firing, a lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee by Sanders and the DNC suspending,
Debbie Waserman-Schultz Must Go
`Tis nearly the night before Christmas and not a creature is stirring, what with everyone out at a party, multiplex or mall. What better time for a presidential debate? That at least is the view of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Clinton campaign, from which she takes her cues. They wanted the
At Final 2015 Presser, Obama Says He's Going to
Leave It All Out on the Field in 2016
Around 2p.m., President Obama held his final news conference of the year. He touted the longest streak of private sector job growth since the recession, with 13.7 million new jobs created. The unemployment rate has been cut in half, and the steady implementation of Obamacare has driven the uninsured rate down.
Obama Boasts 'I've Never Been More Optimistic' about Enacting My Agenda
A supremely confident President Obama said Friday he’s “never been more optimistic about a year ahead” than he is right now, and he made the case that 2016 could be a landmark year in which he is able to enact even more of his agenda before leaving office. At his traditional year-end press
Obama Uses Slavery to Fundraise for the DNC
Earlier this month, we celebrated the 150th anniversary of the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery in America and helped the country begin to heal in the years following the Civil War. The 13th Amendment’s ratification, on December 6th, 1865, set the tone for future progress that has helped
Paul Ryan Won't Fund Border Fence, But Does Fence His $421,000 Mansion
I confess that there is some concern I have about whether or not an actual fence would keep out those crossing our southern border. I confess that the added expense of manning that fence at several mile increments also concerns me about costs and debt, considering we have no actual money. We’re $19
'Old Dixie Highway' in Deep South Renamed 'Barack Obama Highway'
When Governor Nikki Haley – in the wake of the shooting that claimed the lives of nine churchgoers in Charleston – called for the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the South Carolina State Capitol, it marked a significant shift. Across the South, symbols of the Confederacy have been
Obama: Stopping Terrorists 'Not that Different' from Mass Shootings
President Obama says that stopping the next terrorist attack in the United States will be just about as hard as stopping the next mass shooting. “It’s not that different from us trying to detect the next mass shooter,” he said. “You don’t always see it. They are not always communicating publicly, and if you’re
Secret Hashtags Help Teens Share Dangerous Habits Like Self-Mutilation
Rule-breaking may be just as irresistible to teenagers today as it was in their parents’ day, but a new study of secret social media hashtags like #selfharmmm suggests that new technology is helping kids share dangerous behaviors more easily than ever before. When it comes to what’s known as non-suicidal self-
Mentoring Mykola, an 11-Year-Old Boy Who Lost His
Legs and Arm in Ukraine When He Found an RPG
The war that has been quietly raging in Ukraine for three years has produced a casualty that literally landed in my lap. On August 24, 2015, while most of us enjoyed the dog days of summer, halfway around the world in Ukraine the life of an 11-year-old boy named Mykola was turned upside down.
Yet More Evidence to Prove Global Warming is a Hoax
This news story reminds me of a cartoon I once saw picturing Al Gore at the north poll trying to melt the ice with a hairdryer. The Daily Caller reports, “NOAA Relies On ‘Compromised’ Thermometers That Inflate US Warming Trend.” The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s reliance on poorly-sited
In Defense of Scrooge
There are lots of different editions of “A Christmas Carol.” Some are large and ornately illustrated, with woodcuts and curlicue letters; some are pocket-size and printed on cheap paper with smudgy ink. Either way, by the middle of page one or the top of page two of Charles Dickens’s misunderstood paean
Becoming a Christian Ruined my Love of Christmas
I continued to cherish Christmas well into my adulthood, probably because it conjured up so many happy childhood memories. I never dwelt on the religious aspect. In fact, during my sophomore year of college I fell into an existential crisis of faith. As I teetered on the edge of disbelief, I called my father looking
White House: Obama Will Give a 'Nontraditional' State of the Union
White House officials are pledging that President Obama will deliver a “nontraditional” State of the Union address in January, the last time he will deliver the annual speech as president. The address will still be given in the Capitol before a joint session of Congress.
Virginia School District Shuts Down after Backlash over Islamic Assignment
After defending a Virginia teacher who made her students copy the Muslim statement of faith known as the shahada as part of a calligraphy assignment, Augusta County Schools shut down the entire school system Friday when a backlash erupted on social media. “While there has been no specific threat
Study: Blame Vegetarians for Climate Change;
Lettuce Produces 3 Times as Much Greenhouse Gas as Bacon
Sticking to a vegetarian diet may not be as beneficial to the environment as you think — in fact, it might be helping to destroy it. A study from Carnegie Mellon University has found that many common vegetables require more resources per calorie, and produce higher greenhouse gas emissions than some types of meat.
Another Day, Another GOP Backstabbing
That didn’t take long. The once-promising Paul Ryan finally got a taste of power and promptly jumped into the same slime pit his predecessor John Boehner lived in. The new speaker of the House has “curated” his first trillion-dollar appropriations bill by betraying everything Republican voters keep
Chris Matthews When Asked If He Still Has
a 'Thrill' Up His Leg Replies, 'Go to Hell'
MSNBC host Chris Matthews was less than amused when a staffer for the conservative Media Research Center approached him before the CNN Republican debate asking if he still had a “thrill up his leg.” In 2008, Matthews famously said that he felt a “thrill up his leg” while covering then-Senator Barack Obama.
Woman Ordered to Abort
My body, my right! We’ve heard the slogan time and again. People pretend that because a baby is within a woman’s body that the baby is part of her body. It’s a lie but it is an abortion-rights advocates creed. Notice, this has nothing to do with the genetic connection.
End the Republican Freedom Project
The republican “Democracy Project” was on full display in Tuesday night’s debate. The establishment candidates from Bush to Kasich and Christie all espoused virtually identical views on the Middle East and particularly the handling of Bashir al-Assad in Syria. But now you count newly crowned establishment
Tarantino: Disney 'F*cking Me' over 'Star Wars' Booking
Despite much hype and excitement around “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opening this Friday, there’s at least one person who isn’t too happy with Disney — Quentin Tarantino. The Oscar-winning director claims Disney is “going out of their way to f— me,” among other choice words he used on
Will Trump 'Voters' Vote?
Donald Trump dominates the national polls, but he’s second in Iowa, according to the RealClearPolitics average. And, as I pointed out in a recent column, “The more that polls refine for the likelihood of a respondent actually voting, the worse Trump does.” At first glance, this suggests that Trump supporters are
San Bernardino Shooters Buried in Quiet Funeral Following Islamic Rituals
Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, who opened fire on a San Bernardino holiday party earlier this month, were buried Tuesday in a quiet, graveside funeral. Many of those who attended mosque with the couple refused to attend, two mosque members said. U.S.-born Farook, 28, and his Pakistani-born wife
White House Declares Victory over GOP in Budget Battle
The White House declared victory Wednesday over congressional Republicans in the budget negotiations that concluded late Tuesday night, saying Democrats beat back the GOP across the board. White House officials cited a long list of wins over majority Republicans on individual budget items ranging from funding
Bernie Sanders Visits Mosque, Says Trump's
Rhetoric Could Lead to Another Holocaust
Looking to keep pace in a campaign where security and terrorism have taken center stage, Bernie Sanders took his message to a new setting Wednesday: he visited a mosque. On Wednesday, the senator from Vermont told a small crowd at Washington’s Masjid Muhammad (also known as “the Nation’s Mosque”) that
Senate Intel Panel Backs Off: Cruz Not under Investigation
The Senate Intelligence Committee put out a one-sentence statement Wednesday denying it is looking into whether Texas Sen. Ted Cruz revealed classified information in Tuesday’s GOP presidential debate. “The Committee is not investigating anything said during last night’s Republican
The Debate Democrats Can't Have
The over 18 million Americans who tuned to CNN on Tuesday night for the first Republican presidential debate since the terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino might have been pleasantly surprised. American anxieties over the threat of radical Islamic terrorism are nearing or surpassing their immediate Signups Crest 4M as Deadline Nears
At least 4.1 million people have selected a 2016 health plan on, according to an Obamacare update released Wednesday that says more than 1 million people signed up in the last week alone. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services says 1.3 million people signed up between Dec. 6 and Dec. 12,
Bergdahl Worth HOW MUCH to Taliban?!
The American soldier’s capture was a gift from God to the Taliban, the militants said; he was like “a golden chicken.” They thought so even after 15 of their fighters were killed in a raid by U.S. forces trying their hardest in the summer of 2009 to find Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl. “Some people are worth more than a
L.A. Defends Response to Threat that New York Dismissed as a Hoax
The threats arrived at the same time on opposite sides of the country. Shortly after 10 Monday night — about 1 a.m. on the East Coast — public school officials in Los Angeles and New York received nearly identical emails promising imminent attacks on campuses involving explosives and gunmen. The immediate response
Another Poll Shows Americans Oppose
Assault Weapons Ban for First Time Ever
A second national poll from a major media outlet in the past week has found a majority of Americans now oppose a ban on so-called assault weapons even after the New York Times published an editorial on its front page supporting it. Fifty-three percent of respondents said they oppose a ban on assault
Why Malala Yousafzai is Taking on Donald Trump
Malala Yousafzai knows a thing or two about overcoming extremism and hate. The Pakistani Nobel Prize winner and education advocate was shot by a member of the Taliban in 2012 when she was just 16, but survived. Ever since, she’s campaigned for girls’ education and against hate-driven ideologies. 
Attempted Self-Abortion Results in First-Degree Attempted Murder Charge
A woman who attempted to perform an abortion with a coat hanger six months into her pregnancy has been indicted on a first-degree attempted murder charge, Murfreesboro Police reported. Anna Yocca, 31, of Swindon Circle, was arrested Wednesday at
Cruz Bested Rubio in the Debate
If you are a Ted Cruz supporter like me, you thought he won the debate. The same goes for Trump and Rubio supporters. To supporters of all others – Rots-a-Ruck. If you are a Ted Cruz supporter like me, you thought he won the debate. The same goes for Trump and Rubio supporters.
How Do I Talk about 'Terror Days' with my First-Grader?
It was shortly after 7 Tuesday morning when my husband came into our home office and whispered, “Come here. I need to show you something.” I followed him into the kitchen, past our kids, ages 7 and 4, who were slowly getting ready for the day. He showed me his phone:
