Comcast Rolls Over for Hillary
In June, Comcast executive vice president David Cohen hosted a $2,700-a-plate fundraiser for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

Al Sharpton, and a Monday town hall meeting on the "Today" program.

Let's Protect Intellectual Property Rights From "Big Fix"
Fall is always a busy time on Capitol Hill. Members usually wait for this time of year to consider the most controversial and thorny issues like appropriation bills to keep the government open and tax legislation that expires at the end of the year.
The Allure of Mass Murder
"Seems the more people you kill, the more you are in the limelight."
It Ain't Funny, Hillary
Hillary then moved away from raunchiness to scripted satire on the season's premier of "Saturday Night Live." Hillary was a kibitzing bartender named Val, talking to SNL star Kate McKinnon, who reprised her impersonation of Hillary. But the scenario was less satirical than self-serving, with both Hillary characters oozing banter about how great Hillary was/is.
When Barack Obama accepted the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, he predicted that the occasion would be remembered as "the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth." Some seven years later, America is weaker, and the world is a far more dangerous place.

California Conservatives: Fighting and Winning In Huntington Park
In Huntington Park, CA, one of the bluest districts in the state of California, but with some ruby red patriotism bursting through, one of the city councilmembers, Valentin Amezquita, the only one to vote against appointing two illegal aliens to city commissions, has opened up to Donald Trumps immigration plan. I may not like Trump, but I do like that Democrats are considering Republican candidates.
The Pope’s Visit, Reconsidered
To say that Pope Franciss visit to the U.S. drew a lot of media attention would be an understatement. The coverage was round-the-clock. Yet as a lifelong cradle Catholic, educated by Jesuits, I couldnt help noticing what a remarkably incomplete, if not misleading, portrait emerged of the Holy Father.
Going Down Fighting
Before the smell of gun powder wafted away on the crisp Oregon breeze, President Obama scrambled to the podium to demonize an inanimate object, a tool.

Impeach the IRS director
Look, wrote Lois Lerner, echoing Horace Greeley, my view is that Lincoln was our worst president not our best. He should [have] let the [S]outh go. We really do seem to have 2 totally different mindsets.

The Moral Imperialism of PC Ideologues vs Quranic Islam
A few weeks back, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson found himself deluged with mass hysteria when he dared to claim that Islam and the American political tradition were incompatible.
The Problem Isn't Guns Or White Men
There's a rigid formula in media accounts of mass shootings: If possible, blame it on angry white men; when that won't work, blame it on guns.
Charlatans and Sheep: Part III
The prevailing social dogma of our time -- that economic and other disparities among groups are strange, if not sinister -- has set off bitter disputes between those who blame genetic differences and those who blame discrimination.
