What To Do About the Border Crisis

Despite what politicians say, the border crisis is not an immigration problem or a border security problem. We've got all those problems, but this ain't that. These kids-these tired, poor, huddled masses-are not economic migrants. They-these homeless, tempest tossed to us-are seeking refuge from violent gangs and corrupt cops in Central America. If we deal with the problem that exists instead of having the fight politicians want, then we can do some good.

End Torture, Shut Down the CIA

Remember back in April, 2007, when then-CIA director George Tenet appeared on 60 Minutes, angrily telling the program host, "we don't torture people"? Remember a few months later, in October, President George W. Bush saying, "this government does not torture people"? We knew then it was not true because we had already seen the photos of Iraqis tortured at Abu Ghraib prison four years earlier.

No Inflation? Another Liberal Lie

Paul Krugman, liberal New York Times columnist and economist whose erroneous predictions and inflammatory opinions have inspired websites, blogs and columns by others detailing his multitude miscalculations, launched a Buk missile of a column at conservatives warning of inflationary government policies.

T-Minus 28 Months and Counting

Bust out the gin and tonics because this is shaping up to be one heck of a long hot summer. Weather-wise and politics-wise. All over the world, hostilities are flaring like out of control wildfires. While here at home, it's the words that have grown from fiery to scalding. And the only way to describe the actions- incendiary.

Hollywood Liberals Stand Down for Israel

Once again Israel is being forced to defend itself from the terrorists who run Gaza.

Strangers at Our Door A Crisis for American Christians

In the words of Pope Francis, America is experiencing a "humanitarian emergency." Fleeing instability and violence in Central America, a human tide of thousands of refugees, many of them unaccompanied children, has been flooding across our southern border.

Let’s Not Pick A Dumbest President And Say We Did

Is someone out there picturing Abe Lincoln with a dunce cap instead of a stovepipe hat?

An Oath for Obama

"I say it's high time we update the wording of the presidential oath of office, which is specified in Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution."

We Can't Leave These Men Behind

The situation on Texas' southern border is not the only refugee crisis facing the United States. Thousands of Afghan interpreters who need to get out before the Taliban kills them for collaborating with U.S. troops are stuck over there because the State Department has run out of visas. Make no mistake, this is a test of our national character: These men risked their lives to help us bring democracy to Afghanistan, but they might die because our government doesn't work.

Republicans are Stuck on Stuck

"Just following the will of the people." That's been the GOP rationalization for accomplishing absolutely nothing for five and a half years. Doesn't matter what the issue is. Immigration. Jobs. Infrastructure. Climate change. Banking reform. The proliferation of substandard dental schools in Nebraska.

The Biggest Hypocrites in America

Liberal megadonor Tom Steyer, failing to raise any significant outside money for his global warming Super PAC, turned to one of his San Francisco neighbors for a million dollar check. It was Herb Sandler, the subprime mortgage lender at the heart of the housing crisis, and like Steyer a huge hypocrite.

Inaccurate Political Rage is All the Rage

Do you have personal issues? Do you want to seem intelligent, well informed and on-top-of-it-all without having to bother to put in any effort or time to see whether your assertions are accurate? If so, then join the trend that's all the rage in the 21st century: show indignation now and worry (or, more likely, don't) about accuracy later. And, for heaven's sake, never EVER worry about "nuance."

Democratic Scandal Brings Obama to Delaware

President Obama came to my tiny home state of Delaware on Thursday with a "new" initiative to repair deteriorating infrastructure around the country (and to repair his declining polling numbers).

Honoring Our Fathers

Despite the media play Chicago gets, it isn't the official "Murder Capital of the U.S.A."

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.

Whatever Happened to Common Sense Regarding Climate Change?

Fear mongering is quite lucrative in what seems to be a burgeoning "climate change industrial complex," where certain people benefit monetarily or politically in their promotion of global catastrophic risk due to catastrophic global warming.

Time to Reconsider Going to College?

The American economy has supposedly long since recovered from the Great Recession. The stock market is doing exceptionally well and unemployment isn't what it once was.

How to Produce Your Own Texas Miracle

Rick Perry's running for president again, which means we have to endure a bunch of talk about what he calls the "Texas Model." The rest of us call this the "Texas Miracle," or the economic special sauce of low taxes, low regulation, low spending, and tort reform that he says created boom times in Texas while the rest of the country struggled. Hire me, goes his logic, and I'll make sure someone hires you. Being president is good work if you can get it.

Red Pope, Green Pope

He gets under their skin like termites in a boathouse. Drives them crazier than Hillary Clinton and Yoko Ono dancing on a gay pride parade float. He's the itch you can't scratch. The thorn in the palm of their paw. The 3-inch scratch on their favorite Ted Nugent album. I'm talking about that hot new Catholic sensation, Pope Frankie.

Pope Francis Challenges Our Apathy

Few papal encyclicals have been as anticipated as Laudato Si', and Pope Francis has not disappointed. The encyclical articulates a compelling moral vision intended to address the ecological crisis gripping our world.

Should I buy a card?

Masters champion Jordan Spieth won the U.S. Open in a thrilling manner at Chambers Bay Golf Club. Afterwards he wished everyone a Happy Father's Day, which came off as a bit insensitive to people in Los Angeles. Father's Day is the most confusing day of the year for Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
