In spite of the fact that Islamists were attacking us long before 9/11, going back to 1979 when the Iranians held Americans hostage for well over a year, and including murderous attacks on American embassies, a Marine base, the USS Cole and the earlier bombing of the Twin Towers, some of us keep insisting it’s a peaceful religion.

Our presidents never tire of telling us that most American Muslims are peace-loving, even though it took the F.B.I. to stop those peaceniks …

Fortunately, I no longer board a lot of airplanes because if I did, it would really piss me off that after a teenager flew to Hawaii in the wheel well of a jetliner, a spokesperson for the TSA said that nobody can be expected to prevent a kid from hopping over the fence at the San Jose Airport in the middle of the night.

I suppose that would hold true even if the kid happened to be a jihadist carrying a …

A friend of mine, after taking note of Obama’s approach to foreign affairs, has decided that his doctrine is to speak softly and carry a big grudge.  But if you stop and think about it, that also sums up his domestic policies, which seem aimed at burdening the middle class with additional taxes; a health system that will be the envy of nobody on earth, including the folks in Bangladesh; and an EPA and IRS that are out to target …

Even before he wound up sexually involved with the adopted daughter of his lover, Mia Farrow, when he was 56 and Soon-Yi was 19, I had little use for Woody Allen (born Allan Stewart Konigsberg).  Except for “Hannah and Her Sisters” and “Broadway Danny Rose,” I had never liked his movies.  Obviously Hollywood viewed him otherwise, having nominated him for 24 Academy Awards, four times giving him an Oscar.

But as much as I dislike his movies, I find his politics …

Over the course of writing 1,400 articles, I have made some mistakes.  Liberals would insist that each of the 1,400 is jam-packed with them, but they’d only be taking issue with my opinions and my conclusions.

I’m not claiming that even conservatives agree with me all the time or that all of my jokes are gems, but I can only recall two instances when I’ve made factual errors.  The first time was when I griped that Mitt Romney garnered fewer votes …

I know that a lot of people continue to call for Obama’s impeachment, but it’s an exercise in futility.  The Republicans can’t, even though Obama has treated the Constitution as if it was an old rag, and the Democrats won’t.  We had a great opportunity to dump him in 2012 and replace him with Mitt Romney, and we blew it.

That doesn’t mean that we have to sit back and patiently count off the hours until Harry Reid decides to retire.  …

We like to think of ourselves as a nation of laws, but, increasingly, it has become a meaningless term.  For one thing, there is nothing great about obeying laws that are indecent.  Slavery, after all, was perfectly legal for several decades in the United States, as was Jim Crow.  Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union had just as many laws as we did.  So it’s high time we quit mouthing the cliché as if it were Holy Scripture.

In recent years, …

I doubt if there has ever been a time when obvious lies and sheer humbug were ever as widespread as they’ve been over the past couple of decades.  But, then, I don’t believe we have ever had as many really stupid people eating, breathing, voting and taking our parking spaces, as we have today.

I believe there are many causes for this dismal state of affairs.  To begin with, there was the generation that came of age in the 1960s, arguably …

Recently, Laura Ingraham was a guest on Howard Kurtz’s Sunday Fox show, “Media Buzz.”  She offered what I thought was an intelligent solution to a problem that has been annoying me for some time.

As we all know, Fox remains an oasis on TV, the only news network that isn’t in the tank for Obama and the liberals.  However, in attempting to comply with Roger Ailes’ desire that Fox be “fair and balanced,” too many shows have fallen into the habit …

 (The NBA, Israel, Muslims, JINOs)

Secretary of State Kerry, who seems to be working overtime to make his predecessor look good, announced that if Israel didn’t cave to the Muslims, who pray to Allah several times a day for the extinction of all Jews, they ran the risk of being denounced as an apartheid nation.  The next day, after an initial firestorm, he decided, as they say, to walk his statement back.  Not too surprisingly, Donald Sterling wasn’t allowed the …
