Will Putin get a Pulitzer?

Waving off the clerics who had come to administer last rites, Voltaire said: "All my life I have ever made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies look ridiculous.' And God granted it."

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.

Law school: New boot camp

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are about to choose running mates. I don't know whom they'll pick, but I hope that one or both picks a military veteran. The next president will inherit war zones in the Middle East and Afghanistan, yet neither major party's front-runner can boast military chops. In the last century, military service was considered an important part of a portfolio for a would-be commander in chief. After all, how can a president send others into battle when he has not seen combat himself? Military service hasn't been mandatory in a president, nor ...

Now controversial: ‘God Bless America’

It didn't used to be -- that's a phrase we use a lot these days, isn't it? - but the Fourth of July festivities bring out the angriest guff from the left. In 1991 Boston Globe arts critic (and aspiring poet) Patricia Smith decided to refashion the national anthem in the leftist rag The Nation.
