    Bowe Bergdahl, the Army deserter who walked off his base in Afghanistan, is whining that the US treated him worse than the Taliban. The 31-year-old sergeant told British TV journalist Sean Langan in an interview reported in The Sunday Times of London: “At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat.’ ” That got him less upset than the “administrative duties” the Army assigned him while awaiting trial, he said. “Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for...

    The Washington Post’s Philip Bump (full disclosure my former CNN colleague) is one of the first -- or maybe so far the only -- journalist at a mainstream media outlet to get what is seriously disquieting news for the mainstreamers. Here’s Phil’s headline: Trump’s already largely won his war against the media Phil begins his story this way: The choice that President Trump asks America to make is a simple one and one that he’s demanded since he jumped into the presidential race. Who are you going to believe, he asks: An industry of people whose jobs depend on presenting...

    Last week, I wrote about the abuse by the Forward regarding an article I submitted on DACA.This is the column as submitted to them.It took a Category 5 hurricane to halt the hysteria over the Trump Administration’s decision to force Congress to create legislation that would deal with individuals brought by their parents to the United States as children, an illegal act. It is now time for Jewish leaders to help forge a solution. You know that in 2012 President Obama issued an executive order, now known as DACA, that established a process allowing children who had entered the country...

    Hey, why not deed that spot to Rep. Clowny McPartyBarn of Florida? Xe’d be great, and we’re pretty sure xe’s a woman. – Nancy Pelosi appeared on “The View” Friday, and told them she needs to remain the Democrat minority leader in the House solely because of her gender. Not kidding: “I was ready to go if Hillary won, have a woman at the top of the table, protecting the Affordable Care Act, which is to me similar to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid,” she told the assembled hosts, but she said that she was the only woman at her table...

    The conference of national defense chiefs is on countering violent extremism. Since being appointed armed forces chief by President Joko Widodo in July 2015, Nurmantyo has been at the center of several controversies. Earlier this year he abruptly suspended all military cooperation with Australia in a row over teaching materials, and has been rebuked by members of Widodo's cabinet for making misleading public remarks. He helped stoke a wave of anti-communist sentiment sweeping Indonesia by ordering the screening of an anti-communist propaganda film to members of the military Nurmantyo will step down as leader of the armed forces in 2018...

    Just when you thought liberals had sunk as low as they could, they break out the shovel and start digging.Nothing is sacred anymore. Nothing is off limits, and everything is political. This week showed us once again there is nothing Democrats won’t exploit, no grave they won’t dance on, if they think they can score political points. And there’s nothing “journalists” won’t spin, won’t lie about, and no hypocrisy too great to prevent them from smearing their political opponents.The sad deaths of four soldiers in an ambush in Niger normally would not be a political football, but these times are...

    Hollywood has clearly lost what little grasp on reality they had:Oh for heaven’s sake: “How brave women –from superstars to assistants- stood up to a powerful movie mogul accused of horrifying sexual abuse.” In the immortal words of John McEnroe, “you cannot be serious!” I would like to think the People cover is intended as irony, but we all know better.Let’s start with Rose McGowan, who’s been running her mouth non-stop about what a pig Weinstein is and how Hollywood just turns women into sex objects – there’s a real news flash! Here’s Rose at the 1998 MTV Music Awards...

    Tucker Carlson opened his nightly show Tucker Carlson Tonight yesterday with a fantastic take down of  the "morons" from MSNBC Lawrence O'Donnell and Joy Reid for suggesting that White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly is somehow racist for criticizing  Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL). Lawrence O'Donnell, who is an Irish Catholic from Boston himself, proclaimed that Gen. Kelly grew up in a segregated neighborhood where women were abused.  “John Kelly never sat next to Frederica Wilson in his elementary school,” O'Donnell said. Adding "the language used in John Kelly's white neighborhood about black people was the exact same language used...

    DailyMail.com ^ | 10/22/2017 | Peter Hitchens
    I am sure that being smacked (very seldom, as it has happened) did me some harm, though I am equally sure there are some people who think I should have been smacked more than I was. But the question is whether banning smacking will do more harm than allowing it. And that is much more complicated. No person actively wants to smack a child. But a lot of sane, kind people have sometimes thought it wise to do so....... I'm not talking about the angry and obviously damaging violence you sometimes see in supermarkets, where an exasperated and furious parent,...

    Donald Nichols, an Air Force spy in Korea at the dawn of the Cold War, was the best and worst kind of American warrior. Ferocious, creative and unbreakable, he won more than 20 medals for valor during the Korean War and vacuumed up battlefield secrets that saved countless American lives. Yet Nichols was callow, untrained and very young—just 23—when he arrived on the Korean Peninsula. He was a seventh-grade dropout. He was virtually unsupervised. He would soon veer out of control, losing touch with morality, with legality, even with sanity—if Air Force psychiatrists are to be believed. He attended mass...
