    On Friday’s Morning Joe, MSNBC panelist Donny Deutsch pushed the typical liberal “tax cuts for the rich” narrative as he slammed the Republican health care reform bill: "The other side of the aisle will call this as a redistribution of wealth. Obviously, parties are given to hyperbole, but the reality according to the Center [for] Tax Policy is that 90 percent of the benefits in this plan go to families making $700,000 a year or more, the one percent. That is a fiscal reality." He demanded of Senator Rand Paul (R-KY): "How do you explain that to some of the...

    RUSH: I saw this, it just brought a smile to my face. Solar Power Stops Working Well When its Hot Outside. Did you know that? Ill bet you didnt. Ill bet that if you are a tech-oriented Millennial, you didnt know that, and you probably arent gonna believe it. But its true. Dont expect recent heat waves hitting the southwest to make solar panels produce more energy, according to an industry representative. High temperatures decrease a photovoltaic solar cells output by between 10 and 25%, Stuart Fox, a vice president at the green energy company CivicSolar This is in the...

    RUSH: I dont know why has happened to Professor Dershowitz, but whatever it is, I like it. Ive always admired Professor Dershowitz from the first time I met him in 1989. It was in a hallway at the New York radio station where the EIB Network was temporarily headquartered. Professor Dershowitz was strolling in to appear on another show. It wasnt mine because I dont do guests. He already knew who I was and he stopped and he kind of cocked his head to the right and pointed, I know who you are! I know who you are. You think...

    The journalists at CBS and NBC have found a new Donald Trump “outrage” to hyperventilate over: The President drove his golf cart onto a green at one of the courses he owns. This, according to CBS This Morning guest host David Westin, is a “mortal sin.” Today's Matt Lauer insisted he was “gasping” over video of Trump.  On CBS, co-host Norah O’Donnell huffed, “Well, golf is a sport of etiquette, but President Trump appears to have committed a golfing sin.” Continuing the religious language, unusual for liberal journalists, Westin excoriated, “This is a mortal sin, actually, if you're a golfer....

    Just ask Nancy Pelosi. An Animal House, all-is-well quality colored Nancy Pelosis Thursday press-conference postmortem of her partys Tuesday defeat in Georgia. We reduced by 20 points what the advantage had been in that district for the Republicans, the minority leader, imagining Democrats playing horseshoes or hand grenades, declared. This is good news for us. If losing a race Nate Silver gave you a 70 percent chance to win comes as good news, does repeatedly losing winnable special elections amount to really, really good news? Remarkably, for Nancy Pelosi, yes. By juxtaposing the relatively narrow margins of defeat in four...
  • I worked on the EPAs climate change website. Its removal is a declaration of war.

    This spring, political officials at the Environmental Protection Agency removed the agencys climate change website, one of the worlds top resources for information on the science and effects of climate change. To me, a scientist who managed this website for more than five years, its removal signifies a declaration of war on climate science by EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. There can be no other interpretation. I draw this conclusion as a meteorologist with a specialization in climate science and as an independent voter who strives to keep my political and scientific views separate. I concede that this specific issue is...

    We may be thankful to Alan Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus, at Harvard Law School, for reminding us of the delicious irony of an investigation which began with reports of collusion with the Russians by Team Trump and charges of Russian hacking of our elections, now reverting to the tactics of Russias most murderous tyrant, Josef Stalin. As Dershowitz writes in the Washington Examiner: Special counsel Robert Mueller was commissioned to investigate not only crime but the entire Russian "matter." That is an ominous development that endangers the civil liberties of all Americans. Federal prosecutors generally begin by...

    The essential difference between Christianity and Islam is the difference between Jesus and Muhammad. Jesus was a spiritual leader who laid down His life to save the world. Muhammad was a spiritual leader, who became a political leader, then a violent military leader. Jesus accomplished His mission by dying on the cross. Muhammad accomplished his mission (at least in large part) by ruling by the sword. There are, of course, great similarities between the worlds two largest religions. Both point to a holy book, allegedly inspired by God, for faith and practice. Both call for high moral standards and serious...

    Soon, all the politicians in Washington, D.C., will run down the Capitol steps, full of excitement about the beginning of summer recess. (I just couldn’t resist that visual.) Still, some lawmakers are calling for a reduction in Congress’ time off for the month of August so the needed legislative work can actually get done. It’s not as if they haven’t had time to work, but I believe our legislators have chosen to wait and see how the mainstream media and the progressive left might lead them. Budget reconciliation must be completed, and the American people deserve an Obamacare repeal-and-replace. Congress also needs...

    Julius Caesar is dead (again). Long live "Julius Caesar." Whether the famous dead Roman is a lookalike for President Donald Trump, with a blond comb-over and a long red tie; a cool black dude in a tailored suit suggesting former President Barack Obama; or a 1930s Orson Welles with a Sam Browne belt resembling Benito Mussolini, the character has captured the imagination of the public and the players since Shakespeare wrote the play more than four centuries ago. The spectacle changes with fresh costumes and new sets to emphasize contemporary issues for specific audiences, but the words continue to plumb...

    In the first round of the special election for the House seat in Georgia's Sixth District, 30-year-old Jon Ossoff swept 48 percent. He more than doubled the vote of his closest GOP rival, Karen Handel. A Peach State pickup for the Democrats and a huge humiliation for President Trump seemed at hand. But in Tuesday's final round, Ossoff, after the most costly House race in history, got 48 percent again, and lost. If Democratic donors are grabbing pitchforks, who can blame them? And what was Karen Handel's cutting issue? Ossoff lived two miles outside the district and represented the values...

    Michigan is set to become the 26TH American state to join the federal government in criminalizing female genital mutilation, even as two Detroit area doctors and one of their wives await trial for inflicting the procedure on a number of young girls. FGM, which is common in some parts of Africa and the Middle East, involves using a razor to remove all or part of a girl's clitoris and parts of the vulva. By Western standards, this amounts to child abuse and criminal assault. FGM defenders claim that the practice makes girls feel "clean;" that it helps them to fit...

    The Democrats' comprehensive meltdown after their fifth straight election loss is a spectacle worth savoring. They're vacillating between denial and self-flagellation, between consuming depression and delusional optimism. Some are even blaming hacking for the loss. Don't let them fool you; they did not expect carpetbagger Jon Ossoff to lose to Karen Handel in the special election for Georgia's 6th Congressional District. If they had, they would not have poured unprecedented millions into the race. No one but gambling addicts intentionally waste that kind of money. For all the talk about President Donald Trump's being in trouble, the Democratic Party is...

    I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasnt dreaming. There I was, an Orthodox Israeli Jew, at a 500-year-old synagogue in Marrakesh, distributing food parcels to Muslims for Ramadan, representing the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (The Fellowship) on behalf of millions of Christians in the U.S. and worldwide. It just didnt make sense. It seemed too good to be true. But as I quickly learned, it was just another day in mystical Morocco, a country that defies norms, defines tolerance and is home to a dwindling population of 2,500 Jews. Though Morocco is a Muslim country,...

    Liberals made a big deal out of the report that Fox News has dropped its old slogan "Fair and Balanced." The liberal media always made a mockery out of it, rejecting it as "false balance." It's "false balance" because the conservative view is false. From their arrogant viewpoint, only the "truth" is worth reporting. That same worldview infects public broadcasting, which has been a left-wing propaganda project from its very beginnings in President Lyndon B. Johnson's days. They passed the Public Broadcasting Act with a meaningless rhetorical bow to fairness and balance, and liberals made sure any legislative teeth in...

    The victory of Republican Karen Handel in the special election in Georgia's 6th Congressional District on Tuesday has discouraged Democrats and encouraged Republicans. Democrat Jon Ossoff won 48.1 percent in the special election's first round April 18, and Democrats had high hopes that they could take this House seat from the Republicans. But even with $30 million spent -- in what became the most expensive House race ever -- and with a turnout of 260,000 (more than the 210,000 who voted in the 2014 midterm), Ossoff won exactly 48.1 percent again. Not quite enough. Georgia's 6th District was significant because...

    Douglas Murray, whose book The Strange Death of Europe I applauded here the other day, has called him one of the great heroes of our time. I fully agree. His name or, at least, his pen name is Ibn Warraq, and he's the author of such important and eloquent works as Why I Am Not a Muslim (which I wrote about here eleven years ago), Why the West Is Best (which I reviewed here five years ago), and What the Koran Really Says. Born in India and educated in Britain, Warraq began criticizing Islam in print during the...

    Health Reform: Just before the Senate unveiled its ObamaCare replacement bill, Anthem announced that it was pulling out of most of Indiana and Wisconsin. It was a timely reminder that Republicans have no choice but to get ObamaCare off the books, and why critics of the Senate bill aren't playing fair. As soon as the details emerged, critics of the Senate bill point to the various ways that it wasn't as good as ObamaCare. The subsidies are less generous, the Medicaid expansion is slowly rolled back, insurers would be free to charge older people more, it would gut ObamaCare's "essential...

    After their embarrassing and expensive loss in the Georgia special election which was supposed to be a referendum on President Trump Democrats might take some solace in the fact that Trump's approval ratings are still in the cellar. The latest IBD/TIPP poll has him at 37% approval. Then again, maybe that's as unrealistic as their hopes of winning a traditionally Republican district simply by bashing Trump. A review of IBD/TIPP poll data shows that, if anything, Trump's approval rating could quickly jump upward if he can put together a string of scandal-free weeks, or if the media...
