In a surprising move this holiday season, Our Father, which normally art in heaven, descended down to earth yesterday and added His Almighty voice to the call for gun control. Dressed in a pure white suit, and looking not unlike Morgan Freeman in Bruce Almighty, God appeared on Fox News and said:
The big news today was that Senator Lindsey Graham has decided to drop out of the presidential nomination race. But recently, what has surprised me even more, is one Hillary Clinton quote in particular about the Middle East that hasn't gotten any media attention at all.
The president has the power to destroy the world. And the 2016 candidates -- Democratic and Republican -- have barely been asked about how they approach that terrible responsibility. Nuclear weapons are more dangerous than ISIS will ever be. They deserve a more serious debate.
There's no question the presidential race has become pretty ugly: with Trump turning it into a reality show, the policies being discussed would hurt t...
What she has demonstrated in the current election cycle is an even higher degree of fluidity in this most singular of political communication formats. Her performance in Saturday night's debate in New Hampshire should give pause to her would-be Republican rivals. This is a woman who knows how to debate.
The justification for Turkey's membership in NATO and America's defense guarantee for Ankara long ago passed. Turkey's irresponsible action proves that it is no U.S. ally.
One side pits winners and losers against each other in a race for the American Dream, while the other wonders what might be possible if we work togeth...
While major hurdles have been cleared with the Obama administration's executive actions, much remains to be done.
Question #1: Is it possible that the continuing fall in the price of oil on the world and West Texas markets may not be due merely to the decision las...
Well it finally happened. Donald Trump, not content with merely mocking reporters, calling for the deportation of Muslim-Americans, and erecting walls along the American border, has a new target in his crosshairs: the Internet.
We do NOT need a nuclear triad. The vague talk at the GOP debate is matched by similarly vague discussions about the triad at hearings and in official statements. This posturing inflates the value of these weapons and obscures their threat to our own security.
Ok, America, you now have a clear choice between the party of hope and optimism and the party of gloom, doom and fear. The most surprising thing at Tuesday's night's 5th Republican presidential debate was the absence of Chicken Little himself.
It's pretty easy to see in this election cycle that America has hit a new low in stupidity. I like to collectively call it "The Stupid." The acceptance and glorification of ignorance and anti-intellectualism into our political system is one of the most dangerous threats to our country.
America has a growth problem. In the postwar period the standard of living doubled roughly every 30 years. At current projections it will take nearly 50. Tax policy should support better growth and there are a number of interesting proposals to do so.
The bigoted, xenophobic rhetoric Donald Trump is giving Republican voters is exactly what they want. This deterioration of the GOP base is something the other candidates, and even media pundits, are still in denial about. That is why they're losing. Trump is the only one who has recognized it, and he's right.
Two weeks after a terrorist attack in California, the GOP candidates for president met to discuss foreign policy. We asked two national security experts to grade the ideas they expressed.
