Fighting Terrorism with Social Justice | FrontPage Magazine

State Department spokesperson Marie Harf became the target of much ridicule last week when she inanely suggested that we can combat Islamic terrorism through job creation.

Why the Left Hates American Sniper | New York Observer

What American Sniper is really about is the battle by decent men against truly dark forces of wickedness. American Sniper is a film of soaring patriotism and an ode to our courageous military. For too long Americans have lived with only two percent of the population losing arms and legs and dying so that the other ninety-eight percent can be safe and free. If we’re not going to copy the heroes of the military at least we can salute them.

If the President Couldn't Tell a Lie | RealClearPolitics

In the famous 1997 movie comedy "Liar Liar," actor Jim Carrey plays a lawyer who, as a result of his young son's birthday wish being magically fulfilled, cannot tell a lie -- he can only tell the truth -- for 24 hours.

Nylons for nothing in Cuba - The Washington Post

Obama walks away empty-handed in a one-way deal with Cuba. There’s an old Cold War joke — pre-pantyhose — that to defeat communism we should empty our B-52 bombers of nuclear weapons and instead drop nylons over the Soviet Union. Flood the Russians with the soft consumer culture of capitalism, seduce them with Western contact and commerce, love-bomb them into freedom.
