All the Democratic Party presidential candidates have come under fire from the #BlackLivesMatter crowd for not addressing the rare occurrence of black people dying at the hands of police. They appear to have learned their lesson and are in full political cover mode when it comes to the death of Sandra Bland.
Who would have thought it? With all the issues facing the country and the world, the thing that got people the most upset so far this election season is a politician saying all lives matter. But thats where we find ourselves, and its incredibly sick.
President Obamas press conference on his Iran deal this week is a case study in just how far journalism has fallen as a profession.
Democrats have a strategy, a battle plan theyre willing to do anything to advance. Republicans have facts, statistics, history and no clue what to do with them.
When Kate Steinle was murdered by an illegal alien with a felony rap sheet long enough to make him a viable hip-hop star, the world barely noticed. Conservative blogs did.
Politicians are scrambling to gain favor with the ethnic group du jour: Hispanic voters.
As we celebrate our independence this weekend, we probably also should mourn it. No, we arent reverting back to British subjects, but we are becoming subjects again. There is a new hierarchy dominating much of our discourse and social interaction that creates a coveted status for victims.

I cant believe its come to this Im about to defend Donald Trump. Its not that I have anything against Donald Trump, but I dont have anything for him either.

I say this in the most sincere way possible: Get over yourselves.
While we steam toward bankruptcy, Republicans are focusing on loose change under couch cushions.
No generation has received more validation than the one currently in high school and college.

Mainstream media has expended much ink over the size and varying quality of the Republican presidential field, and in some respects this is correct.
Its been a slow news week. Nothing much has happened. Sure, Iran is moving ever closer to a nuclear weapon, several more candidates have announced a run for the White House, and there was a major debate about government spying on the American people. But all that and much more was trumped by a celebrity news story because, well, the mainstream media is awful.
I met Andrew Breitbart almost a decade ago at a party. All I knew about him was that he worked for Matt Drudge, and Tucker Carlson told me I had to meet him. Tucker wasnt at the party, but he knew Andrew would be and made me promise Id introduce myself. I did, and I did.
The black community is home to the presidents greatest supporters, unwavering in its loyalty. So many of the hopes of the past, present and future were vested in him in a way that is incomprehensible to anyone outside that community. And Barack Obama failed them in monumental ways.
Lets be honest: It is just an unfortunate fact that Hillary Clinton stands a good chance of becoming the next president of the United States.
