Who’s your mommy?

Hillary Clinton's advantage going into the final evening of the Democratic National Convention was her nonstop determination. The former first lady and secretary of state never gave up on her bid to become the first female American president. Unlike Donald Trump, she didn't just stumble into the nomination. She reached the spotlight through "steady leadership" - a euphemism for plodding on after personal scandal on an epic scale and a painful election loss in 2008.

She can repent in prison

"If the word 'Manson' was not attached to Leslie, she would have been out 20 years ago," attorney Richard Pfeiffer told me about his client, convicted Manson "family" killer Leslie Van Houten, who is serving a life sentence for her role in two 1969 murders. On Friday, Gov. Jerry Brown reversed a parole board recommendation to parole Van Houten, 66, because she is remorseful, has accepted responsibility for her crimes and no longer poses a danger to society. "As our Supreme Court has acknowledged," Brown wrote, "in rare circumstances a crime is so atrocious that it provides evidence of current ...

Bell’s palsy a possible side effect of having had chickenpox

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 55. I was having numbness on the left side of my face, and my left eyelid started to droop. I thought I was having a stroke. I went to the hospital, and they told me this is Bell's palsy. I asked where it came from and the doctor asked if I ever had chickenpox. I told him I had, and he said this is just another consequence, like shingles. No one in my house was aware of this. Can I also get shingles along with this? Now they say my face could clear up ...

Trump’s Two Homers: Pence and Promise for a Declaration of War

Donald Trump hit two home runs this week. The first, immediately following the horrific terrorist truck attack in Nice, was his statement in a media interview wherein he said that if elected, he would ask Congress for a declaration of war to combat global terrorism. The second was the inspired selection of Indiana governor Mike Pence to join the GOP ticket.

Absolving Black Lives Matter in Dallas

When white racist Dylann Roof allegedly shot and killed nine people in a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, it was very easy for President Obama and his media enablers to paint with a broad brush and blame the wider political culture. Bill Maher even blamed Fox News and the Daily Caller and the Drudge Report.

Brexit stuns the globalists

Britain's decision to "leave" the European Union (EU) ended the career of Prime Minister David Cameron, who had campaigned hard to "remain" in that supranational body of unelected bureaucrats. Small-c conservatives in Cameron's own Conservative Party rebelled against the liberals and globalists who dominate both major parties over there. Sound familiar?

Trump’s Muslim ban is gaining support

When an ISIS-supporting Muslim named Mateen massacred 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando on June 12, Donald Trump reminded Americans that he is still the only political candidate to support a pause in the massive flow of Muslims entering the United States. Trump made his proposal last December after another ISIS-supporting Muslim massacred 14 people at an office Christmas party in San Bernardino, California.
