  • When a President Falls Ill: A Lesson from History

    Townhall.com ^ | September 29, 2016 | William Hazelgrove
    One would think there is protocol in place for when a presidential nominee falls ill, but surprisingly there is no official guideline. In fact, until the Twenty-Fifth Amendment was passed after the Wilson presidency, there was no clear definition of what being “unable to fulfill the duties of President” meant. With Hillary Clinton’s recent health issues, we have to consider the very real possibility that our next president might fall ill, which poses the question: “What happens next?” For that answer we must look to history, and the most obvious example is Woodrow Wilson. President Wilson suffered a massive stroke...
  • ‘Missing’ White Voters Could Elect Trump. But First They Need To Register.

    In 2012, President Obama won re-election by almost 5 million votes, but about 47 million eligible white voters without a college degree — including 24 million men — didn’t bother to vote. In 2016, these nonvoters are part of the demographic that is most strongly in favor of Donald Trump. If Trump rouses even a fraction of these notoriously disaffected Americans — like this grease-smudged, 61-year-old first-time voter in western Pennsylvania — he could surge to victory. There’s just one catch: If we’re on the cusp of a blue-collar Great Awakening, it’s not yet showing up in the registration data....

    Donald Trump scored a gentleman's "C" in his first debate with Hillary Clinton. She was programmed, like one of those androids from the film "Westworld," spewing out well-rehearsed sound bites, smiling (sometimes condescendingly), and even tossing in a few wiggles. It was all designed to make her look warm and wonderful. As the saying goes, if you can fake sincerity, you can fake anything. Trump did best when he didn't focus on himself and this is the pattern he should follow in the next two debates. As a seasoned debater, who has taken on professors and liberal thinkers on campuses...

    Monday night's debate moderator, NBC's Lester Holt, asked Donald Trump why he "perpetuated a false claim that the nation's first black president was not a natural-born citizen." Hillary Clinton added that Trump "has a long record of engaging in racist behavior, and the birther lie was a very hurtful one." Trump defended himself by saying: "Sidney Blumenthal works for the campaign and (is a) close -- very close -- friend of Sec. Clinton. And her campaign manager, Patti Doyle ... during ... her campaign against President Obama, fought very hard. ... And if you look at CNN this past week,...

There were first graders and freshmen holding hands on this cool Autumn day to pray for our nation -- to cry out - as...

    Forgive me if I’m confused, but there seems to be a huge disconnect between what our would-be elite overlords are telling us about women and what they actually think. Apparently coherence and consistency are sexist, and probably also racist and homophobic, making the pooh-bahs of the establishment and their media gimps the most tolerant people in the world. So, Hillary has some serious sads because Trump interrupted her in the debates. That’s sexist you know, because women are both just as good and tough and stuff as men and, simultaneously, little delicate flowers that we must treat like fine china....

    In the first presidential debate Donald Trump achieved Job One: convincing independents that he is being mischaracterized and caricatured, that he really is a “normal” guy, just exuberant but essentially normal, under control, disciplined. To the point that he is a plausible choice. I believe that at the suggestion of his handlers he drank water whenever he felt the urge to interrupt or insult or felt himself “losing it.” (The irony, of course, is that he mocked Marco Rubio for drinking lots of water during debates. But, as with “All Things Trump,” the alternative is Hillary. So drink away!) It...

    Bikini — and burkini — season is over here, but with the new school year, France’s battle over national identity has erupted on a new front: its history curriculum. School curriculums have long been a part of culture wars, including in the United States, where there have been tussles over slavery and evolution. But in France, where the state sets school programs nationwide, the country’s understanding of its past — and how it uses education to shape young citizens — has become a hot-button issue in a fraught election season. Changes to how Joan of Arc and other touchstone historical...

Even the tabloid site TMZ described Dean's tweet as a "low blow." Unbowed, Dean doubled down at MSNBC on Tuesday, to the point where a clearly uncomfortable Kate Snow tried to maneuver him into backing away a bit. He wouldn't, which is fine with Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post, who told the network's Peter Alexander on Wednesday that "we should probably be talking more about" Dean’s speculation.

Not just police. I think unfortunately too many of us in our great country, um, jump to conclusions about each other. And...

    In his 2008 campaign for president, candidate Obama said that the debt run up by President Bush was “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic” and that Bush ran up the debt all “by his lonesome” (short video). Despite presiding over far more debt in his first term than Bush did in two, President Obama was re-elected by young folks. It would seem that debt doesn’t really register with millennials. Although millennials may not be interested in debt, debt is interested in them. On Oct. 1, 2016 the federal government will begin its next fiscal year, FY 2017. Fiscal 2017 will mark ten years...

Little did Don Henley and Glenn Frey know that their popular song and Hillary Clinton would have a synchronous moment 40 years later during her presidential campaign.

I suspect he was secretly auditioning to be her press secretary. Just tally the number of times Holt interrupted Trump and pressed him on follow up questions and then compare that number to Hillary’s. As we...

We are directed to never make any general statements and comparisons of Islam to terrorist activity, or be castigated as an Islamophobe. We are chastised as inciting Islamic jihadist recruitment if we refer to the enemy as they refer to themselves -- after all the best method to combat terrorism is with compassion, unity, and love.

    President Obama’s failure to learn anything in the last eight years about the Palestinian-Israeli dispute was evident in his final speech to the UN General Assembly. In the mere 31 words that he devoted to the subject, he laid bare his ignorance: “Israelis and Palestinians will be better off if Palestinians reject incitement and recognize the legitimacy of Israel,” he said. “But Israel recognizes that it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land.” Sounds reasonable enough, doesn’t it? Both sides have responsibility for the conflict — except they don’t. First, the Palestinian side of the equation was severely understated. Yes,...

    At last night’s presidential debate Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton made all kinds of attacks on each other.

Both candidates have repeatedly said so for months. Trump’s stance on this issue should be deeply troubling to those who care about gun rights – and also to people concerned about constitutional rights generally, even if they don’t care much about this one.

    We can discuss the polls to determine the victor from last night, and we'd be left with a huge number that say Trump won and a few that say Clinton won. Or, we could look at little, non-scientific groups that networks gather called ‘focus groups’ and we can wonder how any American doesn't realize that a dozen people isn't even vaguely representative of the 320 million Americans. Americans aren't that stupid. Sadly, the media thinks we are. We can look a demeanor, and we'll note the deer-in-the-headlights look of Clinton for the first two-thirds of the debate, or we'll note...

    There is something close to a consensus view among pundits that Hillary Clinton “won” the first presidential debate. As has been true throughout the campaign, the pundits are wrong about Trump. The kind of people who watch a presidential debate with a notepad found Hillary to be well organized, articulate, knowledgeable, and fully presidential. By the conventional rules of the cognitive elite, Trump lost. He was spontaneous, not memorized, emotional, not controlled, and downright angry at times as he reviewed what’s happened to our country over the last decades – the “30 years” Hillary Clinton has been in politics. In...
  • Hillary’s ‘Deplorables’: Mass Media

    The fix is in. Even if she doesn’t show up for the upcoming presidential debates, Hillary Clinton will be declared the winner. Hillary will be declared the winner by the same media who covered for her when she disparaged millions of hardworking Americans, saying half of Trump supporters belonged in a “basket of deplorables,” consisting of “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic” individuals.People haven’t heard much about Hillary’s “deplorables” comment because that kind of behavior doesn’t fit the narrative. So her media friends changed the subject, reporting about “important” things like how cow farts contribute to global warming, rather than all...

    Alexander Hamilton said energy in the executive is essential. That was back in what used to be called the critical period of American history -- when the still new Republic was threatening to come apart, as eventually it did in the next century. But this crisis is now and needs to be dealt with now, and decisively now. Instead, the major parties have nominated (a) a buffoon who seems willing to say anything that will give him and his followers a moment in the spotlight in this age of Trump and all things Trumpian, and (b) a "leader" with little...
  • Advice For Donald: Scare America With The Truth

    I have advice for Donald Trump for tonight's debate. Mitt Romney was afraid to tell the truth. He thought it was "too dark." He thought it might scare America. Well it's time to scare America. It's time for Donald Trump to trust American voters with the truth. Call it a modern version of "Scared Straight." I'm a small businessman. I'm at ground zero. I'm living the real-world results of Obama's economic policies every day. It's a disaster out here. The middle class is destroyed, shattered, annihilated. Small business owners are struggling to survive. America and capitalism are hanging by a...

    Celebrating the racial diversity of the Charlotte protesters last week, William Barber II, chairman of the North Carolina NAACP, proudly proclaimed, "This is what democracy looks like." Well, if Barber is right, so, too, was John Adams, who warned us that "democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." Consider what the protesters, who, exults Barber, "show us a way forward to peace and justice," accomplished. In the first two nights of rioting, the mob injured a dozen cops, beat white people, smashed and looted stores,...

    Someone might want to inform Hillary Clinton that greed and envy are two of the seven deadly sins. Her new revised tax plan would raise the estate tax to as high as 65 percent -- up from 40 percent, where it is today. She would also apply this hated death tax to as many as twice as many estates. It's one of her dumbest ideas yet -- and that is saying a lot. It won't raise any revenue to speak of. It's a bow-tied gift to estate-tax lawyers and accountants. Many studies have found that the cost to the economy...

    Let's step back, as we approach the first presidential debate of the 2016 campaign, and look back to try to understand how voting patterns have changed over a generation, by comparing the 2012 presidential results with those of 1988 -- keeping in mind possible shifts since 2012 suggested by 2016 polling. My thesis is that changes in states' voting behavior can best be explained by surges of migration over the past generation -- not just immigration, a subject of obvious interest this campaign season, but even more of internal migration within the United States. The overall picture is one of...

    “This is not a biological issue. It is a political issue…we want wolves gone.” ~ Statements made at the Sen. Tom Tiffany/Rep. Adam Jarchow Sept. 15 Great Lakes Wolf Summit The actions and legislation of this U.S. Congress make me realize that hunters think that wilderness is a federally financed shooting range with roads leading across it from all directions, dogs fighting bears and wolves, forests emptied using steel-jaw traps, and living animals lined up for target practice. Until the 90 percent of us who do not kill wildlife realize that “hunting” has morphed from a way to gather food...
  • Where Does Black Lives Matter's Anti-Semitism Come From?

    Gatestone Institute ^ | September 21, 2016 | Philip Carl Salzman
    Black Lives Matter has been guided to anti-Semitism by the concept of "intersectionality, which argues that all oppressions are interlinked and cannot be solved alone. Thus, women can never be treated fairly if blacks face racial prejudice, and the disabled are not given sufficient support to be equal to the abled, and unless the Palestinians are liberated from the Israelis, and the Israelis are liberated from their lives and their home. "Intersectionality" urges us to view the world as divided into a conspiracy of oppressors and an agony of oppressed, and reduces people to a number of categories, such...

    Ahead of Monday night’s first presidential debate, Rudolph Giuliani – former New York mayor and Republican nominee Donald Trump’s current adviser – spoke at the Israeli American Council’s annual conference. Four days of intense debate preparation with Trump preceded the talk. Giuliani insisted the time has come for the US to “reject the whole notion of a two-state solution in Israel.” It can only be hoped that regardless of who prevails in November, Giuliani’s statement will become the official position of the next US administration. . In his speech before the UN General Assembly last week PLO and Fatah chief...

    Obama's Legacy of Demagoguery and Divisiveness The “Ferguson effect” takes its toll on the African-American community while race relations are at a nadir. When Obama assumed office in 2009, there were high hopes that the first African American president with bi-racial parents would be able to bridge the racial divide and foster unity in the country. Those hopes were soon dashed. Nearly eight years later, the nation is more polarized than ever, as devastating race riots grip large metropolitan cities with alarming frequency. Instead of offering hope, Obama gave us demagoguery. Instead of fostering unity he stoked and encouraged...
