Legalize 11 Million Illegals

Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said that he would legalize 11 million illegal immigrants currently in the United States in exchange for enhanced border security. On Monday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Krauthammer argued, “I think if you´re going to do the step of legalizing these 11 million, which I would do, that has to come after you have secured the border, there are a lot of ways to do it.

Authorities are looking into a viral Internet video that shows a man kicking a squirrel off what appears to be the edge of the Grand Canyon.But park officials say the chances of finding the man are slim."Right now they are working on it," park spokeswoman Kirby-Lynn hedlowski said on Mrs on Monday. "They realise that it´s been seen by a lot of people and that there´s some sensitivity to treatment of wildlife." The short video posted on YouTube shows a shirtless, barefoot man in shorts and a straw cowboy hat leaving a trail of food at the edge of a canyon.

When a horse is interested, it pricks up its ears and swivels them around. Ears flopped down means creature is relaxed and pinned back shows anger. These movements are so important that, if a horse´s ears are covered up, another horse struggles to know what it is thinking. Horse whisperers take note: If you want to better understand your equine friends, then study their ears.



Is Thinking Obsolete?

Some have said that we are living in a post-industrial era, while others have said that we are living in a post-racial era. But growing evidence suggests that we are living in a post-thinking era. Many people in Europe and the Western Hemisphere are staging angry protests against Israel´s military action in Gaza. One of the talking points against Israel is that far more Palestinian civilians have been killed by Israeli military attacks than the number of Israeli civilians killed by the Hamas rocket attacks on Israel that started this latest military conflict. Are these protesters aware that vastly more German civilians

Both foster parents of a 10-month-old girl who died after being left in a hot car were smoking marijuana while she remained in the vehicle outside, a Wichita police affidavit says. The affidavit, filed in Sedgwick County District Court and released Monday, provides new details about what led up to the July 24 death, including that one of the foster parents realized that the baby remained in the car when he heard a baby crying on a television show they were watching. They rushed outside, but her body was hot and already stiff, and she was unresponsive, the court document

The ongoing Israel operations in Gaza, combined with the continuing, brutal sectarian fighting in Iraq and the prospect of that country’s disintegration, have driven oil prices up and will likely keep them high for some time. Combined with Libya’s well-advanced state of anarchy, Syria’s grinding civil war and terrorist attacks elsewhere (in Algeria, Nigeria and Sudan), the entire Middle East and major parts of Africa could be descending into chaos. How can America fight back? One necessary response is to begin to break the dependence on foreign oil that has long threatened our national security and compromised our economic viability. Although

The IRS’s God Complex

Is the Internal Revenue Service a threat to religious liberty? As the IRS continues to come under well-aimed fire for harassing conservative groups, on Friday it secured a final court order formalizing what amounts to a secret agreement to monitor the pulpits of ill-favored churches. The serious danger, as former Justice Department attorney J. Christian Adams told Fox News, is that the IRS will start treating “theology as politics,” and regulate it accordingly. Lovers of liberty should be very concerned. According to a June 27 IRS letter to the Justice Department, 99 churches merit “high priority examination” for allegedly illegal electioneering activities.

Every remembers a formidable aunt who could cool the jets of the rambunctious neighborhood boys with a glance. The U.S. has Peggy Noonan for that, and last week Aunt Peggy frowned at the Obama boys. The president shouldn´t be using a fateful and divisive word like "impeachment" to raise money and rouse his base. He shouldn´t be at campaign-type rallies where he speaks only to the base, he should be speaking to the country. Then there´s the Pelosi rich-girl clique: The House minority leader shouldn´t be using the border crisis as a campaign prop, implying that Republicans would back Democratic

As they decided whether to use the United States’ atomic bombs on Japan in 1945, Allied military planners and political leaders had to weigh carefully the costs and benefits for the American people, present and future. They made the correct choice. Tomorrow will mark one of the United States’ most important–but least recognized–anniversaries. It is remarkable not only for what happened on that date in 1945 but for what did not happen subsequently. What did happen was that the Enola Gay, an American B-29 Superfortress bomber from the intentionally obscure 509th Composite Group (a U.S. Army Air Force unit tasked with deploying

Comparing President Obama to
Jimmy Carter is an insult to Carter

Jimmy Carter has had a long-standing reputation as authoring the most ineffective foreign policy of any modern presidency. To be honest, Carter deserves better. When the man from Plains, Ga., moved to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, he came wearing the anti-establishment headdress. In particular, when it came to foreign and defense policy, Carter promised that his policies would be anything but business as usual. America, Carter claimed, could do less in the world. So he planned to pull U.S. troops out of Korea. His foreign policy would be based on fostering "human rights" and talking peace instead of war. From the beginning, however, almost no

Doctors Begin To Refuse
Obamacare Patients

Obamacare plans have shrunk payments to physicians so much that some doctors say they won’t be able to afford to accept Obamacare coverage, NPR reports. Many of the eight million sign-ups in Obamacare exchanges nationwide already face more limited choices for physicians and hospitals than those in the private insurance market. But with low physician reimbursement rates, the problem could get even worse. For a typical quick patient visit, Dr. Doug Gerard, a Connecticut internist, told NPR a private insurer would pay $100 while Medicare would pay around $80. But Obamacare plans are more likely to pay closer to $80, which Gerard

RICHMOND —After Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) endorsed Mitt Romney for president in 2012, McDonnell’s wife sought out the candidate to promote the dietary supplement now at the heart of the former first couple’s corruption trial, a onetime aide testified Monday. Maureen McDonnell and then-Star Scientific chief executive Jonnie R. Williams Sr. showed up together at a news media session in South Carolina hoping to pitch Anatabloc to the prominent Republican, said Phil Cox, Robert McDonnell’s chief political adviser at the time. Cox, also executive director of the Republican Governors Association, said that he put a stop to that plan but

When all else fails, revolutionaries, being revolutionaries, turn to violence. A new “Monsanto Collaborators” website created by millionaire organic activist Mike “the Health Ranger” Adams charges that hundreds of thousands of deaths have been caused by GMO crops, and that people who support genetically-modified organisms, like myself, Fox News’s John Stossel and the former ABC Newsman Jon Entine, are guilty of mass genocide, and hence deserving of a punishment that befits our crime. “Every 30 minutes, a farmer commits suicide due to GMO crop failures,” Adams claims, blissfully unaware, apparently, that stories of mass suicide by farmers in India, perpetuated by

Patients should be charged £200 to see their GP so they ´learn to appreciate the NHS´, fertility expert Robert Winston has said. It comes after calls for patients to pay a £10-a-month fee to use health services, and also be charged £20 for every night they stay in hospital. But Labour peer Lord Winston said the actual value of a hospital was much greater--and the charge would have to be much higher to make it more ´realistic´ for those who do not appreciate the cost. He told the Sun: ´The actual value of a hospital appointment is about £200.

A confident and clueless president

President Obama returned from his full-time job as the Democratic Party’s fundraiser-in-chief to host today’s U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. As he winged his way back to Washington from Kansas City aboard Air Force One, the president sat for an interview with editors of The Economist. The interview was pure Barack Obama, and it revealed him for what he is — an intellectually agile partisan fantasist. According to Mr. Obama, there really haven’t been that many problems, but those we may be experiencing are the fault not of his policies or leadership, but of the fact that he continues to have to contend



Scenes from the feminist implosion

If you want to see why modern feminism is in crisis, look no further than Michelle Goldberg’s piece in the latest New Yorker. She describes how transgender activists are protesting the gatherings of the group “RadFem Responds” with “acts of vandalism — stealing electrical cables, cutting water pipes, keying cars in the parking lot, and spray-painting a six-foot penis, and the words ‘Real Women Have D–ks,’ on the side of the main kitchen tent.” Wait. What? The radical feminists are under attack because they don’t accept in their ranks people born as biological men but now convinced they’re women. The RadFemmers argue that

On Day No. 127 of imprisonment, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi entered a federal court in Tijuana and faced four border officials who were involved in his March 31 arrest on weapons charges. Following the approximately five-hour hearing, Defense Attorney Fernando Benitez told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News´ "On the Record" that he felt his client was "a little more upbeat" and that he was "growing more optimistic as evidence is entered into his case." Four witnesses -- two Mexican soldiers and two Mexican border agents involved in Tahmooressi´s arrest -- testified Monday Benitez asserts Tahmooressi´s civil rights were violated because he was

Some of the world’s top PR companies have for the first time publicly ruled out working with climate change deniers, marking a fundamental shift in the multi-billion dollar industry that has grown up around the issue of global warming. Public relations firms have played a critical role over the years in framing the debate on climate change and its solutions – as well as the extensive disinformation campaigns launched to block those initiatives. Now a number of the top 25 global PR firms have told the Guardian they will not represent clients who deny man-made climate change, or take campaigns seeking to

Palestinian Arab sources said Tuesday that Gaza residents attacked Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri Saturday evening, near the Shifa Hospital. Abu Zuhri had arrived at the hospital for an interview with a news outlet. The residents blamed Hamas for the death of family members and for destruction of their homes. Armed Hamas terrorists from the Izzedine al-Kassam Brigades extricated Abu Zuri and arrested the angry residents. Arabic website vetogate.com said that reporters in Gaza are well aware of the incident but are afraid to report it, because Hamas´s security agency could go after them if they do. A week ago, Palestinian sources

Let´s start with the glasses. You know what I´m talking about: the dark-rimmed, nerd-chic eyewear that, since last summer, has emerged as the symbol of the new Rick Perry—serious, thoughtful, vaguely hipsterish. Perry critics mock them as a desperate ploy to make the governor look smarter, to erase the unflattering conventional wisdom, cemented during his 2012 presidential flameout, that he isn´t all that bright. Republicans and Democrats alike joke about whether the lenses are simply clear glass. Recently, when Perry and Sen. Rand Paul got into an op-ed spat over foreign policy, Paul snarked that the governor´s "new glasses haven´t

Imagine if the conservative media had to include every fact that makes liberals look good in every story that makes liberals look bad. What if attorney-client privilege didn’t exist for lawyers providing advice to conservative publications? Imagine if those contacted by a conservative journalist were dragged into depositions by a liberal plaintiff. Imagine if the liberal plaintiff subpoenaed writers for conservative publications who covered her case. These actions would be a way to silence and chill the increasingly powerful conservative media, and it’s exactly what is happening in former Obama political appointee Shirley Sherrod’s lawsuit against Andrew Brietbart’s widow and radio

Americans support Israel

One gets the impression that America’s broad support for Israel’s mission in Gaza over that of Hamas militants, support reflected in policy in Washington, is evolving into an obsession for members of the press. In fact, it seems that the more stubbornly Americans cling to their support for their country’s democratic ally in the Middle East, the more frenetic and scolding the media’s tone has become while covering the conflict. Over a month into the current crisis, a NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll found that a significant plurality continue to sympathize with Israel over Palestinians. 43 percent of Americans said

TO cross the Atlantic to America, as I did recently from London, is to move from one moral universe to its opposite in relation to Israel’s war with Hamas in Gaza. Fury over Palestinian civilian casualties has risen to a fever pitch in Europe, moving beyond anti-Zionism into anti-Semitism (often a flimsy distinction). Attacks on Jews and synagogues are the work of a rabid fringe, but anger toward an Israel portrayed as indiscriminate in its brutality is widespread. For a growing number of Europeans, not having a negative opinion of Israel is tantamount to not having a conscience. The deaths

In Florida recently, police pulled up to a young boy playing in the park and asked where his mother lived. According to a report on WPTV, the mom was then arrested for "allowing her son to go to the park alone." Her son had a cellphone, and she would check in with him along the way. The mom believes "he´s old enough, but Port St. Lucie Police disagree." There is a tendency to dismiss stories such as this as a silly mistake by an overzealous police officer, but sadly it´s part of a larger problem. In fact, a similar story of

WASHINGTON - The government said Monday it will soon close three emergency shelters it established at U.S. military bases to temporarily house children caught crossing the Mexican border alone. It said fewer children were being caught and other shelters will be adequate. A shelter in Oklahoma at Fort Sill is expected to close as early as Friday, the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) said. Shelters in Texas at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland and in California at Naval Base Ventura County-Port Hueneme will wrap up operations in the next two to eight weeks, agency spokesman Kenneth Wolfe said.
