Phil Richardson: 2015 Veterans Day special

Phil Richardson: 2015 Veterans Day special

By Phil Richardson Long before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, all of America, and much of the World knew about Edward Vernon (“Eddie”) Rickenbacker, famous early race car driver and the highest scoring American flying ace during World War One. Among his many recognitions was the U.S. Congressional Medal of […]

Michael Barone: Rubio and Cruz look like top contenders in debate

Michael Barone: Rubio and Cruz look like top contenders in debate

By Michael Barone Tuesday night’s Fox Business/Wall Street Journal debate in Milwaukee provided clues as to why Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have been climbing, not by wide margins but perceptibly, into the top-polling positions of the candidates behind the two poll leaders, Donald Trump and Ben Carson. The widespread assumption among political insiders is […]

Sam Smith: A journalistic admission

Sam Smith: A journalistic admission

By Sam Smith The week leading up to Labor Day reminded me of something journalists never admit: we don’t just report the news, we help to create it. The eerie disappearance of news during certain predictable times such as Labor Day, the Christmas & New Year holidays, and even come mid-June (when news releases mysteriously […]

Ben Crystal: The coming Obama winter

Ben Crystal: The coming Obama winter

By Ben Crystal The Democrats’ insistence on chaining themselves to President Barack Obama’s dubious legacy guaranteed their winter of discontent. But after Tuesday’s bloodbath, they’ll need a blood transfusion and more than a little luck just to survive the fall. And I’m hard-pressed to offer much sympathy, especially considering we’ve already told them more than […]

Michael Barone: Surge of Democratic turnout has yet to appear

Michael Barone: Surge of Democratic turnout has yet to appear

By Michael Barone You don’t have to wander long in the liberal commentariat to find projections that the Republican Party is in a death spiral, doomed by demographics, discredited by the dissension among House Republicans, disenchanted with its experienced presidential candidates and despised by the great mass of voters. There is something to be said […]

Thomas Sowell: The Ben Carson flaps

Thomas Sowell: The Ben Carson flaps

By Thomas Sowell Dr. Ben Carson’s whole life has been very unusual, so perhaps we should not be surprised to see the latest twist — the media going ballistic over discrepancies in a few things he said. Years ago, when I was writing some autobiographical sketches, I dug up old letters, to check out things […]

Barney Brenner: Useful idiot cruise control-subverting the West

Barney Brenner: Useful idiot cruise control-subverting the West

By Barney Brenner “It’s a commie plot.” That phrase, common among kids in the ‘50s and ‘60s, has fallen from favor. But what’s the likelihood that the non-stop succession of contrived or dubious threats which have assaulted American society and sensibility for decades, all having the effect of weakening the West, are in large part […]

Bruce Ash: Witch hunt for ‘dark money’

Bruce Ash: Witch hunt for ‘dark money’

By Bruce Ash Tom Collins from Arizona’s so called “Clean Elections” Commission apparently has a problem with the US Constitution. Namely the first amendment which protects free speech. The commission wants to clamp down on what democrats mistakenly refer to as “dark money.” In a unanimous move the panel voted to try find the sources […]

Phil Richardson: A horrified look at the refugee crises as winter approaches

Phil Richardson: A horrified look at the refugee crises as winter approaches

By Phil Richardson I would understand if you clicked another button, without reading further. In my 88 years, I’ve seen many terrible situations, but nothing since the Second World War (1937-1945), when an estimated 60 million people, three-percent of the World population died, can compare with what is going on now in a region encompassing […]

Bill Tatro: You can lead a horse to water

Bill Tatro: You can lead a horse to water

By Bill Tatro Why won’t people save for retirement? Obviously, according to mainstream media, especially the Financial News Networks and most liberals in general, the average folk don’t have the tools to stash it away. Even the Presidential wannabees have been asked “should the government take the bull by the horns and enforce retirement programs […]
