  • Feldman: You Cannot Support Israel’s Existence (and Ours) and Vote Democratic This Election

    The Iowa Democratic caucus which I've already described as akin to the Marxist Zimbabwe Farmers-workers confabs is over, and it appears -- as Mark Steyn ably notes -- "almost certain" that Hillary Clinton did not win it. If Iowa were one of those banana republics in which the president-for-life has been prevailed upon to hold an election and Jimmy Carter and a bunch of UN observers had flown in to certify it, none of the above would pass muster. But in the Democrat Party it does:[snip] In effect, Hillary and Bernie fought Iowa to a draw. But a miss is...

    Joe Biden, who would for all intents and purposes be Obama’s proxy All the theoretical scenarios being bandied about regarding the 2016 Presidential race are based on the assumption that Hillary Clinton will be the Democrats' candidate for president. I believe this is a case of wishful thinking mixed with intellectual torpor, as I think Hillary Clinton will not be the Democrats’ candidate. First of all, her negatives and public personae are such that many voters would just as soon eat their ballots than vote for her. That, however, is the least of her worries. There's the small matter of...

    Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades of Fort Wayne-South Bend said he disagreed with University of Notre Dame officials for honoring Vice President Joe Biden with the Laetare Medal for outstanding service to the Catholic Church and society. He said Biden's stance of not opposing abortion and his support of same-sex marriage make him ineligible to receive the award. Biden, along with former Speaker of the House John Boehner, will be honored May 15 during Notre Dame's 171st commencement ceremony. Both men are Catholic. While not calling upon Holy Cross Father John I. Jenkins, Notre Dame's president, to reverse the decision, Bishop...

Hillary Clinton's steadfast support for the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran calls into question her stated "personal commitment" to "fighting for Israel." Peace and security...

During Biden's trip to New York City last week, the Democrat starred in a campaign-like rally to raise the minimum wage and opened up about his personal life during an interview with late-night host Stephen Colbert. During his emotional Colbert interview, Biden said he was still distraught over the death of his son, Beau, and did not seem up to the challenges of the presidential campaign trail. "I'd be lying if I said that I knew I was there," he said. At the...

Since resuming work in late summer after the death in May of his eldest son, Beau, the vice president has alternately stoked speculation that he might join the Democratic field and said he lacked what he called the emotional fuel to do so.

    The scuttlebutt in Washington is that Vice President Joe Biden is going to throw his hat into the presidential race, which means there is at least a 50 percent chance that he will. I mean, when is the Beltway scuttlebutt ever wrong? Under different conditions, I'd guess that, if he does announce, Biden has almost no shot at winning the Democratic primary, and that his candidacy could prove a gift to Hillary Rodham Clinton. Historically, parties don't hold on to the White House three elections in a row. FDR managed to do it, but he had special circumstances on his...

    The Hillary Clinton email issue is developing into a real whodunit, complete with Clintonesque legal semantics. "I never sent or received any material marked classified," she said with respect to the discovery of classified information on her private, unclassified email server. That surface denial nearly rivals Bill Clinton's classic: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." But this is no laughing matter. There is nothing trivial about a secretary of state having top-secret information on an unsecured computer in her home. That appears to have been the case, based on the State Department's announcement last week that 22...

Biden, in a speech to the advocacy group J Street, offered a grim outlook for peace efforts, reflecting dim hopes for progress during the remainder of the Obama administration. Although he said both Israelis and Palestinians shared blame for undermining trust and shirking responsibility, he was emphatic in his critique of Netanyahus government, suggested his approach raised profound questions about how...

"I think that ... one of his strengths is compromise. So I feel maybe America missed an opportunity."

    Vice President Joe Biden has said that he finds some of the comments made by GOP front-runner Donald Trump over the course of his campaign to be discouraging. When I listen to some of the stuff Donald Trump says it just makes me sad, Biden said in an interview with Billboard. Its never, never been wise to try and appeal to the darker side of human nature," he added. "Abraham Lincoln was right -- its about appealing to our better angels. Thats who Americans are and thats what they want. Asked whether it was disconcerting for a candidate to promote...

    Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday tried to clear his name and tout his record on Supreme Court nominations, calling Republican branding of his past remarks on the subject ridiculous and casting himself as a longtime advocate of bipartisan compromise in filling seats on the high court. In a speech at Georgetown Law School, Biden issued a broad warning that Republicans election-year blockade of President Barack Obamas nominee can lead to a genuine Constitutional crisis and sought to distance himself from the strategy. He argued Republicans have distorted a 1992 speech in which he seemed to endorse the notion of...

    Vice President Biden delivered a passionate defense Sunday of President Obamas policy toward Israel and took a direct shot at Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trumps divisive and polarizing rhetoric. Biden, speaking to the American Israel Public Affairs Committees policy conference in Washington, where Trump is expected to appear Monday, didnt mention the billionaire businessman by name. But it was clear that he was speaking of Trump when he condemned those political candidates who seek to divide Americans. As the Jewish people know better than any other people, any action that marginalizes one religious or ethnic group imperils us all, Biden...

    As in any comedy, there is a clown, and Biden was played for a fool by a Palestinian Authority leadership that finds that it pays to point its finger at Israel. Here is a dirty little secret: the Palestinian attackers were not driven to murder Jews because of "settlements" and "checkpoints." Check their Facebook accounts: what fueled their hatred were the lies they had been fed for the past few years by President Abbas and other Palestinian leaders. Palestinian media outlets and spokesmen vomit poison against Israel. And so the curtain rises on another act of the ceremonial, make-believe theater...

    US Vice President Joe Biden said on Wednesday that the United States would take action against Iran - if its long-range ballistic missile tests widely reported in Iranian media were confirmed by the US. "I want to reiterate, as I know people still doubt, if in fact they break the (nuclear) deal, we will act," Biden said during a visit to Israel. "All their conventional activity outside the deal, which is still beyond the deal, we will and are attempting to act wherever we can find it." Iran fired two more long-range ballistic missiles on Wednesday as it continued military...
