Will Jewish Democrats Sink Iran Deal?

From the Right / Mona Charen /

"Seven Jewish Lawmakers Could Tilt the Scales on Iran Deal," headlines The Times of Israel. The members -- Sen. Charles Schumer, Rep. Steven Israel, Rep. Eliot Engel, Rep. Adam Schiff, Rep. Nita Lowey, Sen. Ben Cardin and Rep. Ted Deutch -- are all Democrats. They must choose between loyalty to their party's president and concern about what ...Read more

Among the Ruins, a Case of Righteousness

WASHINGTON -- Christianity, whose presence in the Middle East predates Islam's by 600 years, is about to be cleansed from the Middle East. Egyptian Copts may have found some respite under Abdel Fatah al-Sissi, but after their persecution under the previous Muslim Brotherhood government, they know how precarious their existence in 90 percent ...Read more

Desperate Dems Recycle Planned Parenthood's Mammogram Lie

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

The gruesome hits keep coming for the baby butchers of Planned Parenthood. President Obama and his top health officials have one last-ditch response left: Quick, hide behind the imaginary mammogram machine!

As more graphic, money-grubbing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood's for-profit aborted baby parts racket emerge thanks to the ...Read more

Jon Stewart, Reagan-Mocking Obama Hack

In November of 2002, Washington Post reporter-editor Bob Woodward unveiled excerpts of his latest book, "Bush at War," and created a big stir by revealing that Fox News boss Roger Ailes had sent a "back-channel message" to the Bush White House shortly after 9/11. He had insisted the president talk tough against the terrorists.

The liberal ...Read more

Now the Turks Are All In

From the Right / Patrick Buchanan /

All through the Cold War, the Turks were among America's most reliable allies.

After World War II, when Stalin encroached upon Turkey and Greece, Harry Truman came to the rescue. Turkey reciprocated by sending thousands of troops to fight alongside our GIs in Korea.

Turkey joined NATO and let the U.S. station Jupiter missiles in their ...Read more

Asymmetrical Politics: Republicans Act Like an Unruly Mob, Democrats Like a Regimented Army

From the Right / Michael Barone /

As the presidential campaign heats up, and we head into the first debate among the 16 declared Republican candidates, there is an asymmetry between the two political parties.

Republican voters have been seething with discontent toward their party's officeholders and have not become enchanted with any one of 15 more or less conventional ...Read more

Liberal Media Makes Conservatives Look Bad in Debates

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

WARWICK, England -- When it comes to debates the Oxford Union, which bills itself as the "world's most prestigious debating society," remains the gold standard. Begun in 1823, The Union, in modern times, has hosted debates that have included such luminaries as Ronald Reagan and the Dalai Lama. ...Read more

With Iran Deal, Obama Makes Bad History

From the Right / George Will /

WASHINGTON -- It came two days after the announcement of the nuclear agreement with Iran, yet little mention was made on July 16 of the 70th anniversary of the first nuclear explosion, near Alamogordo, New Mexico. The anniversary underscored that the agreement attempts to thwart proliferation of technology seven decades old.

Nuclear-weapons ...Read more

What's the Alternative?

From the Right / Paul Greenberg /

Anyone who criticizes our president's nuclear deal with Iran is bound to be asked: What's the alternative? With the clear implication that there isn't one -- not an acceptable one, anyway. It's either war or peace. A simple, black-and-white, all-or-none choice: It's the president's way or no way -- except war -- to prevent Iran from joining the ...Read more

Liberal Media is Not Covering the Planned Parenthood Sting to My Satisfaction

The Center for Medical Progress has now issued a third recording of Planned Parenthood officials explaining their grotesque trafficking in baby body parts. It is even more devastating than the first two.

The "news" media barely covered the second installment. They will probably pass over this one altogether. Trump World is apparently far more ...Read more

Obama Cronyism + Your Personal Data = Trouble

From the Right / Michelle Malkin /

It's the most far-reaching scandal in Washington that no one wants to talk about: Tens of millions of federal employees had their personal information hacked as a result of Obama administration incompetence and political favoritism.

Ethnic community organizer-turned-Office of Personnel Management head Katherine Archuleta recklessly eschewed ...Read more

I Am Disgusted By The Left's Contempt for America

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

This past week, one of the greatest differences between the Left and Right -- both around the world and in America -- once again came to light: how each views America.

Every year for the past 67 years, the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner has been the major fundraising event for the Connecticut State Democratic Party. Not anymore. The party unanimously...Read more

Democrats Should Move to Kepler-452b

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

NASA has discovered the answer to all of our problems. It is another planet, a possible twin to Earth that could theoretically sustain life.

This revelation could be bigger than Columbus "discovering" America, or Lewis and Clark finding the Northwest Passage.

It offers the possibility of starting over. ...Read more

Documented Irresponsibility

From the Right / Thomas Sowell /

People who entered the United States illegally may be called "undocumented" in politically correct circles, but what is all too well documented is the utter irresponsibility of both political parties in dealing with immigration issues.

Both Democratic and Republican administrations have left the border with Mexico porous for years -- porous ...Read more

Could Trump Win?

From the Right / Patrick Buchanan /

The American political class has failed the country, and should be fired. That is the clearest message from the summer surge of Bernie Sanders and the remarkable rise of Donald Trump.

Sanders' candidacy can trace it roots back to the 19th-century populist party of Mary Elizabeth Lease who declaimed:

"Wall Street owns the country. It is no ...Read more

Is America Entering a New Victorian Era?

From the Right / Michael Barone /

Forty-seven years ago, the musical "Hair" opened on Broadway. Elderly mavens -- the core theater audience then, unlike the throngs of tourists flocking to cheap movie adaptations today -- were instructed that America was entering an "Age of Aquarius." The old moral rules were extinct: we were entering a new era of freedom, experimentation and ...Read more

The casualness of it

From the Right / Paul Greenberg /

There she is, the chief medical officer of Planned Parenthood having lunch at a nice restaurant and, between sips of wine, setting the going rate for various fetal body parts. She's a real pro, this Deborah Nucatola, so competent, so relaxed, so chatty. She betrays about as much emotion as someone putting together the next politics/fromtheright/paulgreenberg/s-1697461">Read more

In immigration debate, politics and reality diverge

SAN DIEGO -- Apparently worried about being eclipsed on immigration by Donald Trump's traveling road show, House Republicans are preparing to stampede into the debate with a bill aimed primarily at strengthening enforcement.

Naturally. Because the stale and one-dimensional "enforcement only" approach has worked so well up to now.

If ...Read more

Is Social Conservatism Finished?

The end of the Supreme Court term was depressing for conservatives. The double-whammy of a 50-state mandate for gay marriage and the upholding of Obamacare sounded the alarms for religious freedom. All that unease is measurable.

Credit The Washington Post for doing precisely that. The polling team has just reported, "Liberals have won a string ...Read more

It's An Ugly Scene

"Thank you Planned Parenthood. God bless you."

-- Barack Obama, address to Planned Parenthood, April 26, 2013

WASHINGTON -- Planned Parenthood's reaction to the release of a clandestinely recorded conversation about the sale of fetal body parts was highly revealing. After protesting that it did nothing illegal, it apologized for the "tone" of ...Read more
