She was fawned over, made over, praised and glorified. If an event happened anywhere in the world that was positive, she was given credit by her staff. If an event happened anywhere in the world that was negative, staff told her that if only she had been listened to it never would have happened.
Warning: This Column Is In English
Just wanted to make sure I didnt come across as a racist, nativist xenophobe. That is, after all, the attack that awaits anyone suggesting primacy for the English language in a country founded and made great solely by people speaking that language.
Judicial Tyranny: Why Kim Davis May Not be the Last
Pastor Rick Warren once told me the fight for religious liberty would become the civil rights issue of our generation.
Donald Trump's Appeal Is Based on Yesterday's News
Aside from the court-ordered dribbling out of Hillary Clinton's classified-material-filled emails, the big presidential campaign news of the summer has been the boom for Donald Trump in the race for the Republican nomination. Trump has risen from 3 percent in the polls (when he announced on June 16) to where he now stands at 26 percent -- 14 percent ahead of any other candidate.
Victor Davis Hanson:
The Exhausting Mrs. Clinton
Hillary Clinton's second race for the presidency is only about a quarter through, but she already seems to be causing general fatigue.
An Arsenal Of Smoking Guns In Clinton Email Scandal
Every time the State Department pulls out a new fistful of Hillary Clinton emails like Richard Dreyfuss yanking a license plate out of a shark's belly in "Jaws," someone declares that there's "no smoking gun!"
More Campus Fascism
Is there something in the water in the Washington State University faculty lounge, or are its professors conspiring against common sense?
I argued then, as I do today, that there are many serious immigration reforms we ought to be undertaking. We have a valuable commodity -- the right to live and work in the U.S.A. (and in some cases to become a citizen) -- and we should not be handing it out to just anyone. We should swiftly deport criminals even as we should be more welcoming to those who earn PhDs or bring other skills.
The Point Of No Return
That's where we are with the dangerous Iran nuclear deal, the theocratic Islamic Republic of Iran and the 34 shameless Senate Democrats who bowed to pressure and announced their support for the flawed pact, thereby guaranteeing that the president's veto of any measure of disapproval cannot be overridden.
Do Cops' Lives Matter to Obama?
Barack Obama, as chief law enforcement officer of the United States, is going to have to stop acting like a conscientious objector in this war on cops.
Trendy Rage Over Racism
The strange summer of '15 fades with murder accelerating in the big cities. Most of the dead are black, slain by blacks. Many white liberals are in a fashionable rage of blaming themselves for it. What could we expect from this summer's endless search for outrage?
Remember the Law Is Only Sacred When It Furthers a Liberal Value
So Davis' stand isn't about religious freedom. Not really. Signing off on state documents is not tantamount to being forced, as bakers and photographers have been, to participate in a wedding ceremony. There are certainly bigots out there intent on coercing Christian businesses to choose between their faith and their livelihood; this isn't one of those instances. If you want to participate in civil obedience, don't work for the state.
Migrant to Mexico Defends Trump, Denounces Ramos
Rafael Alejandro Hernndez is a young Cuban lawyer living in Mexico who knows from firsthand experience what migrants to Mexico go through. Last week he unloaded on Jorge Ramos.
So now Donald Trump will support the eventual Republican presidential nominee if he doesn't secure the spot himself. He has said all along that in order to do so he must be treated with "respect." A reasonable request -- but one he eschews when it comes to how he treats others.
The Peacemakers -- Or Are They Warmongers?
The contentious debate continues over whether our president's nuclear deal with Iran's mullahs offers the world its best chance for peace -- or is sure to lead to war. Or will it lead to some murky mix of the two, much like the period between the two world wars?
What We Learned From the Arrest of Kim Davis
It is jarring to write the words the arrest of Kim Davis, speaking of the Kentucky clerk who was remanded to jail for refusing to issue marriage certificates to same-sex couples, but for years now I and others have been warning that committed Christians could soon face jail time in America for holding to our convictions.
Email Scandal Will Dog Clinton Right Up To Election Day
The widening scandal has not only surrounded her presidential campaign in controversy and sent her political polls into a nose dive, but it is also raising questions about her honesty, obsessive secrecy and judgment.
Susan Stamper Brown:
Obama's Alaska Global Warming Field Trip
President Obama told some whoppers the size of Mt. McKinley (I mean Denali) about global warming while he was here in Alaska.
Climate Change a Serious Threat to Israel
For once during his presidency Barack Obama is right about something.
Trust of the People
Despite her assertions to the contrary, the controversy over Hillary Clintons email address is not just an issue for the reporters she wishes would stop peppering her with questions on the topic.
The End of the Matter?
Ive heard all the arguments, some quite well crafted and compelling, that Kim Davis should just issue the darned marriage license. Either that or she should resign. After all, they say, its the law of the land.
Trump's Loyalty Pledge and the Curse of Rand Paul
Since Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign, Republican politicians and their apologists on Fox News and in some quarters of conservative talk radio have been laboring tirelessly to discredit him. No effort, no tactic has been spared.
New Strategies for a New Pro-Life Generation
Sometimes I feel like going out and yelling to the man who is dropping off his girlfriend at Planned Parenthood for an abortion and screaming at him for being a coward because at some point he needs to face Gods righteous judgement.
