The only difference between the Democrats and the Republicans when it comes to illegal immigration is that the Democrats stand to benefit from increasing the Hispanic vote.  But both are equally guilty when it comes to not stemming the invasion.  Otherwise, we would hear the Republican politicians demanding that a huge wall be erected along our southern border, instead of parroting Obama’s call for comprehensive immigration reform (aka amnesty).

The problem is that folks on both sides of the aisle want …

I realize that conservatives like to take pot shots at Obama over his constantly flying off to engage in fund-raising events.  Heck, I enjoy taking those pot shots as much as anyone.  In fact, some days it’s the only exercise I get.  But we should always engage in fair play.  In that spirit, I must ask, channeling my inner Hillary, what difference, at this point, does it make where he is?  After all, he needn’t be in the Oval Office …

When Barack Obama swapped five Taliban commanders for one U.S. Army deserter, he said with his customary arrogance, “This is what happens at the end of wars.  That was true for George Washington, that was true for Abraham Lincoln, that was true for FDR.  That’s been true of every combat situation, that at some point you make sure that you try to get your folks back.  And that’s the right thing to do.”

At the time, I merely pointed out that, …

It's all about her!

When Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address, after referring to the blood of the fallen soldiers having consecrated the ground of that Pennsylvania pasture, he concluded his brief remarks by saying that because of their ultimate sacrifice, “This nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that the government of the people, by the people and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

What Lincoln could not foresee was that a century and a half later, …

How is it that ISIS, numbering fewer than 10,000 Islamic cretins, can pretty much overrun Iraq and instill fear throughout the entire Middle East and here in America?  And while we’re on the subject, why haven’t we signed them up to deal with Iran, Russia and North Korea?

As for Iraq, where Obama saw fit to squander American lives and treasure by simply packing up and walking away, I say the most sensible resolution to a problem involving Shiites, Sunnis and …

I admit I don’t see a sliver of difference between so-called good Muslims and the kind the rest of the world has become all too familiar with, and, what’s more, I don’t believe anyone who says otherwise is being honest.

If there were so many good, decent followers of Allah, doesn’t it figure that the law of averages would ensure there would be at least a few civilized Islamic nations?  Instead, they’re all simply different degrees of rotten.

As I sit here, …

If it were up to me, “Unfair and Unbalanced” would be the motto of MSNBC.  Instead, they’ve chosen to go with “Lean Forward.”  When your hosts include the likes of Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, Woody Allen’s kid Ronan Farrow and Al Sharpton, you’re not really running a cable news network, though.  It’s really more of an asylum for the insane and the inane.

In some quarters, MSNBC stands for Morons, Slackers, Nitwits, Bigots and Cuckoos.  What other so-called news …

It wasn’t that long ago that a prospective Supreme Court justice was blackballed because he had occasionally smoked marijuana while in college.  Although it seems as if it happened a hundred years ago, it wasn’t that long until we elected Bill Clinton, who admitted he had smoked pot, but lied about never having inhaled.  That’s like saying you ate a T-bone steak, but didn’t swallow.

We then elected Barack Obama who not only smoked the $h1t on a regular basis, but …

I have no interest in soccer. Just as I have no interest in most events staged during the Olympics.  And, frankly, I don’t get why any American feels the need to tune in every four years to watch the World Cup or synchronized swimming.

I just find it profoundly stupid to sit and watch a game played with a ball in which you can’t use your hands.  I’m not suggesting it isn’t a display of great stamina, but so is the …

Somebody will one day have to explain to me why we or the Israelis ever imprison terrorists.  If we’re not going to execute them, why capture them at all?  Why bother feeding and clothing them until the day comes that the bad guys capture one of ours in order to trade him in for five, 500 or a thousand of theirs?  In the case of Israel, they’ve even been known to swap hundreds of jihadists in exchange for a single …
