Republicans are about to drink the amnesty kool-aid

Jeffrey T. Kuhner Republicans are on the verge of committing suicide. In the wake of President Obama’s re-election, many conservatives are demanding the GOP embrace amnesty for illegal aliens. The official term is “comprehensive immigration reform.” Sean Hannity has now “evolved” on the issue. Others — Dick Morris, Charles Krauthammer and The Wall Street Journal’s […]

How Karl Rove, Inc. wasted conservative donors’ $300 million

How Karl Rove, Inc. wasted conservative donors’ $300 million

Special to WorldTribune.com By Larry Ward and Carter Clews Oddly enough, perhaps the biggest loser in last week’s Republican debacle wasn’t even on the ballot. He didn’t shake a single hand, nuzzle the napes of any newborn babes or promise eager voters pie in the sky or peace on Earth. His name was Karl Rove. […]

Venezuela gains seat on UN Human Rights Council: ‘Neither the U.S. nor the EU said a word’

John J. Metzler UNITED NATIONS — First, the good news. The United States has been re-elected to the UN Human Rights Council along with Germany and Ireland. So too have been South Korea and Japan. Now fasten your seat belts for the rest of the eighteen new selections to the 47 member Geneva-based Council which […]

Only a country that disses its Founding Father could possibly have re-elected this president

Only a country that disses its Founding Father could possibly have re-elected this president

Special to WorldTribune.com By Sheda Vasseghi Something is rotten in the State of Denmark — “The Tragedy of Hamlet” by Shakespeare (Act 1, Scene 4) “What Federal holiday can we do without?” It was the response to this question on the radio a few days post-2012 presidential election that provides a possible glimpse as to […]

Obama stumbles over the finish line into an exploding Benghazi uproar

Obama stumbles over the finish line into an exploding Benghazi uproar

Wesley Pruden What did the president know, and when did he know it? Of what steel are the Republicans in Congress made? We’re about to find out. Big scandals from little leaks grow. Watergate was at first only “a third-rate burglary.” Bubba thought he was only trying to cover up the details of a failed […]

Process wins out over substance: Sad story of a wasted ‘campaign’

Process wins out over substance: Sad story of a wasted ‘campaign’

Sol W. Sanders   For those of us who opposed the re-election of the President precisely for his announced effort “to transform” America into something tradition had never favored, there has been an even deeper and troubling election result. Most of the post-election blather has been just that. Exit-polling has always been extremely unreliable and […]

Obama has remade America in his image

Obama has remade America in his image

Jeffrey T. Kuhner President Obama has succeeded in transforming America. The constitutional republic is dead. A socialist empire has been born. This is the true meaning — and historical significance — of the Nov. 6 election. From the outset of his presidency, Mr. Obama vowed to be a “transformative” leader. His re-election shows that he […]

In a nation of children, ‘it’s practically impossible to beat Santa Claus’

Special to WorldTribune.com Rush Limbaugh, Nov. 7, 2012: Conservatism, in my humble opinion, did not lose last night. It’s just very difficult to beat Santa Claus. It is practically impossible to beat Santa Claus. … Romney’s recipe was the old standby: American route to success, hard work. That gets sneered at. I’m sorry. In a […]

The defeated candidate won! Of what value, the never-ending campaign?

The defeated candidate won! Of what value, the never-ending campaign?

Special to WorldTribune.com WASHINGTON — All that for nothing. It was the billion-dollar election that did not decide one single damned thing. Republicans control the House. Democrats control the Senate. And the White House remains in Democratic hands with absolutely no mandate whatsoever. Another four years with no hope of change. In this environment with […]

That other election: The metrosexual male vs the teetotaller square

That other election: The metrosexual male vs the teetotaller square

Sol W. Sanders   There is another parallel shadowy election tomorrow – no candidates, no poll counting, and no definitive victory or defeat. It’s the little acknowledged cultural war playing out, a fierce contest hardly talked about publicly – at least not identifying it with each candidate. Using labels of another day, the presidential contestants […]
