Tony Blair and the Self-Exalting Mindset of the West: in Two Paragraphs: Tony Blair today took a little time off from serving the world’s despots in order to exploit the 10th anniversary of the July 7 London train bombing. He did so by casting blame on “radical Islam” for the world’s violence while exempting himself, pronouncing: This is a global problem… we’re not go...
During Honduras Crisis, Clinton Suggested Back Channel With Lobbyist Lanny Davis: The Hillary Clinton emails released last week include some telling exchanges about the June 2009 military coup that toppled democratically elected Honduran president Manuel Zelaya, a leftist who was seen as a threat by the Honduran establishment and U.S. business interests.

While it’s true that some of her ardent supporters pushed the theory, there is no evidence that Clinton or her campaign had anything to do with it. In an interview o...
Fiorina Shortchanges Marijuana Research: In questioning the value of medicinal marijuana, Carly Fiorina said “we don’t understand how it interacts with other drugs.” In fact, there is information about marijuana’s interactions with other medications, although major clinical trials using marijuana have been limited by its legal status.

Obama Is on a Roll, But Is His Presidency?: The right-wing media isn't right about much, not even by accident. But they might have one point: The press sometimes gives President Obama a pass when it shouldn't. By almost any measure, Barack Obama is having the best stretch of his presidency. He recently had big wins on health care and...
Why Are So Many Pundits Trashing the Pope?: When Pope Francis recently wrote an encyclical letter condemning the polluting impact of global capitalism, conservative maven Michelle Malkin was offended.
