Take the Win in Iran

With Barack Obama's approval ratings getting dragged down by a floundering foreign policy, we might miss one of his biggest successes in a place no one expected-Iran. Whether we extend the interim anti-nuke deal or reach a longer-term agreement to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, Obama has backed our enemy into a corner. But fans of cynicism, failure, and partisanship should take heart, because there's still time for congress to turn what should be a win-win for the United States into yet another loss.

The First World War Turns 100: Time To Reflect

Kudos to the nation's newspaper editors for making a valiant effort to prepare us for the upcoming (July 28) 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War.

What’s Missing in the Current Immigration ‘Crisis’ Debate

Over the past several weeks we have seen a significant increase in illegal immigration, as thousands of unaccompanied minors pour across what seems an invisible southern border into the United States. The mass immigration has, as to be expected, put an enormous strain on local resources, and it has heated up the immigration debate in the US.

House GOP’s Hilarious Strategy is Born to Lose

Recently, I wrote that summer is the time for stupid political stunts, and John Boehner should honor that tradition by making good on his vow to sue President Obama for alleged executive abuses. "Do it, Mr. Speaker," I urged. "Give us a laugh during silly season."

Forget Hobby Lobby - This is the Real Scandal

As you've probably noticed, the airwaves and news pages have been filled with liberals deliberately lying about the meaning of the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision (Conservatives want to deny women birth control, Republicans are trying to stop women from having sex, yadda yadda yadda).

Dr Oz's Dead End Brick Road

Pity poor Dr. Mehmet Oz. He gets big bucks hosting the popular Opra Winfrey-syndicated "The Dr. Oz Show" on TV. But now he's come under fire in Congress, in the media, and on the Internet for promoting health supplements that sold big due to his effusive recommendations -- products now considered by many to be largely useless. How did he respond?

History, hardship and life's lessons

"Do your kids a favor, don't make their lives easy" was an expression coined in the early '90s, directed toward parents who had the misguided notion that the best pathway to adulthood was one devoid of disappointment. In fact, of course, hardship, failure, and disappointment can be life's best teacher. Every adult who was raised in the 1930s knew adversity. Most males came to appreciate the value of boot camp, and a drill sergeant whose mission in life was to make them miserable. And, along the way, our youth became mature, responsible and accountable. Children born in the ...

Shattering the American Dream

It's not up for debate that our country is losing ground on the world stage - at least as far as economic and military power are concerned. But what is debatable is how we should react.

Rumpus Chumpus Trumpus

For all those bemoaning the lack of noise in the Republican presidential sweepstakes, it's time to get down on our knees and give thanks to Donald Trump because whatever that man touches turns to loud. He's the gift that keeps on blaring. Has all the delicate innuendo of concrete curtain rods. Not just a loose cannon, more like a loose aircraft carrier.

Trump, Cruz and the All Caps Vote

Despite his penchant for counter-factual pronouncements, Ted Cruz is clever, educated, and aggressively intellectual. But he's not stupid, so when he defends Donald Trump for calling Mexican immigrants rapists, you know he's up to something. Right now, Trump is the frontrunner thanks to dominating the All Caps Vote, a constituency that Cruz wants for his own.

Iran Agreement Boosts Peace, Defeats Neocons

Last week's successfully concluded Iran agreement is one of the two most important achievements of an otherwise pretty dismal Obama presidency. Along with the ongoing process of normalizing relations with Cuba, this move shows that diplomacy can produce peaceful, positive changes. It also shows that sometimes taking a principled position means facing down overwhelming opposition from all sides and not backing down. The president should be commended for both of these achievements.

Senate Could Destroy Your Car's Trade-in Value

The Senate may vote soon on an amendment by Democratic senator Dick Blumenthal that would make it illegal for dealers to sell any car with an open recall. That might sound good, but there's a huge problem: many recalls are for items as trivial as a printing error in the owner's manual, and when a part is simply unavailable, there's nothing you can do about it. The Blumenthal proposal would therefore effectively make it impossible for millions of Americans - finding their cars suddenly with little or no trade-in value - to buy a new car.

Peace is Boring

In all of America's 239 years of existence, only roughly 20 of them have been without warfare of some kind. And no, those are not in a row. We've had one or two years, here and there, where we haven't spent our time bombing foreign countries, bayoneting our brothers in hopes of keeping our slaves or invading Canada (that really happened, and more than once). We are a warring people. In the 219 years we've been raging and waging, we've managed to amass the largest military in the history of gatherings where people dressed alike.

Scott Walker's Delusion

When I heard the news about the nuclear deal with Iran, I decided to seek out the sage wisdom of Scott Walker. Because surely, with his vast national security experience - fighting unionized workers, lobbying for a Milwaukee Bucks arena, running a state that ranks 38th in the nation in job creation - he would know what's best for America on the world stage.

Senate Needs to Accept Historic Deal With Iran

You can lead a Senator to water, but you cannot make him think. Benjamin Netanyahu's bellicose bellyaching notwithstanding, getting Iran to give up its nuclear ambitions makes the world safer, is broadly popular with the American people, and is the crowning achievement of an American-led foreign policy in a messy, post-9/11 world. But if this good deal is to become a real deal, first Kerry and his boss must get it past the numbskulls they used to serve with in the United States Senate.
