Victory! Meriam Ibrahim and her American Family Safe, Free, and in Italy

Meriam Yahya Ibrahim of Sudan

Meriam Ibrahim and her American family are now safe and free in Italy. After being under U.S. protection in the American Embassy in Khartoum for the last month, Meriam her two young American children Martin and Maya, and her American husband Daniel were flown out of Sudan on an Italian government plane, escorted by Italian personnel.

Three Questions for Hamas Terrorist Apologists

Palestinian protesters burn an Israeli flag

Over the last few weeks, Hamas terrorists have renewed their terrorist tactics against Israeli civilians, firing thousands of rockets into the civilian population and even using secret tunnels in an attempt to invade and unleash deadly terrorist attacks in Israel itself. As this conflict erupted, Hamas terrorist apologists have come out of the woodwork, some Anti-Semitic as we have seen in violent protests in Europe and some woefully naïve, manipulated by less than accurate and honest medi... Continue Reading

The Obama Administration Holds Israel to Stricter Standards than It Holds the U.S.

President Barak Obama

Let’s juxtapose two stories. First, after declaring that Israel’s attacks in Gaza were a “hell of a pinpoint operation,” Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in the Middle East to press for an immediate cease-fire, a cease-fire that would leave much of Hamas’s military infrastructure intact and hand Hamas a victory after the FAA and others shut down flights to Tel Aviv. Second, on Saturday — the day before Kerry attacked Israel’s military tactics &mdas... Continue Reading

A Victory for Liberty and Common Sense: Federal Appeals Court Deals Massive Blow to ObamaCare

House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) speaks to the media on Capitol Hill in Washington

It looks like Nancy Pelosi should have read ObamaCare before she passed it. This morning, in a 2-1 decision the D.C. Circuit struck down a lawless IRS rule that dramatically extended ObamaCare subsidies well beyond the law’s written guidelines. Put simply, the D.C. Circuit found that ObamaCare subsidies for the millions of Americans in the 36 states that did not create ObamaCare exchanges are unlawful. As a consequence, ObamaCare’s Individual and Employer Mandates are now in jeopard... Continue Reading

Secretary Kerry’s Hot-Mic Israel Critique: He Has No Excuse

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry speaks during a news conference

When Secretary of State Kerry criticized Israel’s military operations in Gaza by calling them a “hell of a pinpoint operation,” he not only validated Hamas’s human-shield strategy, he handed Hamas a key propaganda victory. And he had no excuse for doing so. Unlike the vast majority of Americans — including a vast majority of Americans in “public service” — Secretary Kerry has actual combat experience. He’s fully aware of the enormous destru... Continue Reading

IRS: Maybe Lois Lerner Emails Aren’t So “Lost” After All, Oh, And We Lost a Few More Too

Woman walks out of Internal Revenue Service building (IRS)

The IRS just can’t get anything straight. The Obama IRS appears to now be backtracking on just how “lost” Lois Lerner’s emails are. As the Washington Examiner reports: New testimony from a key Internal Revenue Service official indicates the IRS may not have lost two years of emails sent by former top IRS official Lois Lerner after all. That is what the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee suggested Monday morning in a newly released transcript of a recent... Continue Reading

IRS, Benghazi, Fast & Furious: Will We Ever Know the Truth About Obama Administration Scandals?

Barak Obama

President Obama’s new spokesman, Josh Earnest, recently declared – with a straight face – that the Obama Administration was, in fact, the most transparent administration in history. Really? Even the very liberal Huffington Post website has run stories noting that the Obama administration has gone to “unprecedented lengths” to restrict freedom of the press, declaring it (in the ultimate Huffpo insult) “worse than Bush.” Citing a Committee to Protect Jou... Continue Reading

Hamas Bears the Moral and Legal Responsibility for Every Dead Palestinian Child

Members of Al-Qassam brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas movement, take part in a news conference in Gaza City

There are few things more horrible than seeing innocents die a violent death. Yet that’s exactly what a hotel full of foreign journalists witnessed on July 16, when Israeli shells apparently killed four Palestinian kids playing on a Gaza beach. The images will stay with a person forever, and it’s quite natural to react with rage and anguish. But let’s make sure that rage is properly directed. While Israeli shells may have killed those kids (and others), Hamas bears the moral a... Continue Reading

A Conservative Professor’s Long Quest for Justice Ends in Victory

American Flag

In March I reported on Professor Mike Adams’s victory for academic freedom in his jury trial against the University of North Carolina–Wilmington. UNCW officials had rejected Dr. Adams’s promotion application in a process rife with irregularity and laced with open hostility to his conservative and Christian speech. In addition to teaching at UNCW, Professor Adams is a columnist at Townhall.com, where he regularly attacks intolerance in higher education. He experienced that into... Continue Reading

Victory: Pro-Life Senators Vote Down New Abortion-Pill Mandate

The U.S. Capitol building is seen before U.S. President Barack Obama arrives to deliver his State of the Union address in Washington

Senate Democrats attempt to gut religious liberty and “reverse” the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision on the abortion-pill mandate has been defeated. Pro-abortion radicals reeling from the Supreme Court’s decision in Hobby Lobby quickly jumped to extreme measures to push through their failing abortion agenda, even willing to gut a more than 20-year-old religious liberty law that had been passed nearly unanimously by Congress. This effort to reinstate the abortion-pil... Continue Reading
