De-pressed? The media has embarrassed itself right out of contention in Campaign 2016

Special to WorldTribune.com By Sol W. Sanders Perhaps not since 1936 has there been such an abject failure through prejudicial media reporting of a presidential election. Then, the enormously popular weekly, The Literary Digest, predicted a strong victory for the Republican conservative candidate Kansas Gov. Alf Landon against Franklin Delano Roosevelt. FDR bidding for a […]

Shame! The world’s silence at the execution of an 85-year-old French priest is inexcusable

Shame! The world’s silence at the execution of an 85-year-old French priest is inexcusable

Special to WorldTribune.com By Sol W. Sanders The almost total absence of public mourning for an 85-year-old Christian priest whose throat was slit by Islamicist terrorists while he led prayer in a small church in Normandy, France, is a scandal. Even the French have demonstrated less feeling for this horrendous deed than one would expect […]

Can Judeo-Christian civilization co-exist with Islam? The showdown has begun

Can Judeo-Christian civilization co-exist with Islam? The showdown has begun

Special to WorldTribune.com By Sol W. Sanders The most difficult political and cultural debate since the decision of the Western alliance to destroy fascism in 1939 or the American decision to help resurrect Europe in 1945 has begun. The discussion will be an intense examination of Islam and its role in the modern world. It […]

Why racial bigotry has gotten worse: The yawning gap between Obama and the African American community

Why racial bigotry has gotten worse: The yawning gap between Obama and the African American community

ISpecial to WorldTribune.com By Sol W. Sanders There was a general expectation among Americans that the election of a president with a black face would improve race relations, a continuing and profound anomaly in the freest of nations. There was even a suggestion that particularly in the academic and media communities that hope was one […]

A sad day for James Comey, the FBI and the United States of America

A sad day for James Comey, the FBI and the United States of America

Special to WorldTribune.com By Sol W. Sanders For almost 150 years, the United States avoided having a national police force. The Founders, for the most, had eschewed the whole issue when under pressure from Thomas Jefferson and his Virginia constitutions adopted that colony’s Bill of Rights as the first amendments to the federal constitution. The […]

Not so jolly England: Politics turns nasty on both sides of the pond

Special to WorldTribune.com By Sol W. Sanders No matter the outcome of the British referendum June 23 on leaving the European Union, the argument over the U.K.’s role in Europe and the world is up for grabs. It promises a troubled British political scene for some time to come. The argument over whether to leave […]

Only one strategy can answer the spreading blood lust of Islamic terrorism

Special to WorldTribune.com By Sol W. Sanders While the authorities continue to sort out the career of Omar Mateen, the killer who perpetrated the greatest mass killing in American history, U.S. strategy remains confused.

Rumors that the GOP is dead ‘have been greatly exaggerated’

Rumors that the GOP is dead ‘have been greatly exaggerated’

Special to WorldTribune.com By Sol W. Sanders Reports of the demise of the Republican Party are premature. It makes good copy for Fox News and the few other slightly serious current spectacle reports. But the Talking Heads who spout this prediction have forgotten if they ever knew much about the history of American political parties. […]

The critical foreign policy issues Donald Trump’s foreign policy speech needed to tackle

The critical foreign policy issues Donald Trump’s foreign policy speech needed to tackle

Special to WorldTribune.com By Sol W. Sanders Donald Trump’s much ballyhooed foreign policy speech was a minor disaster. Not only did Trump fail to set out a succinct foreign policy philosophy and agenda, but the speech itself [even with a teleprompter] was a failure in his effort to move to a more “presidential” persona. One […]

Hillary’s e-mails: What is obvious, but not openly discussed

Hillary’s e-mails: What is obvious, but not openly discussed

Special to WorldTribune.com By Sol W. Sanders Not a lot that is being said by the talking heads makes sense in the case of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. First of all, everything would tell us that any domestic or foreign political figure would be interested in the very fact that a specific subject had reached the […]
