Trump? No: Being leader of the Free World is not a reality show

Trump? No: Being leader of the Free World is not a reality show

Special to WorldTribune.com By Matthew R. Drayton Like many Americans, I thought the Donald Trump phenomenon would have faded by now. Now that it is very likely that he could be the Republican nominee in November, I feel obligated to share my concerns about Donald Trump’s ability to be Commander in Chief. Donald Trump, if […]

Performance review for employee Barack Obama: Time to dust off that resume, Mr. President

Performance review for employee Barack Obama: Time to dust off that resume, Mr. President

Lev Navrozov Last night, Oct. 28, as I was watching Fox News Sunday Full Coverage, an image of Obama delivering a message flashed on the screen for a mere second. The image was gone as soon as it came on, but it was enough for me to catch it: “I run not on what I […]

Unfair and off balance: Panic spreads even to the media class

Unfair and off balance: Panic spreads even to the media class

Wesley Pruden There’s not a dry mattress, pair of skivvies or delicate lace panty anywhere out there. The president is chasing an imaginary bird, the pollsters are choking back panic (“has our methodology been wrong?”) and the media glitteries are even more hysterical than usual (“how can anyone as wonderful as us be so wrong?”).

FAITH MATTERS: Trivializing evil is a GOP mistake

FAITH MATTERS: Trivializing evil is a GOP mistake

Special to WorldTribune.com By Uwe Siemon-Netto It is disconcerting that probably the most compelling statement made in this year’s disagreeable U.S. election campaign has received virtually no public attention.

How the media treats Joe Biden and how it treats Todd Akin: Who are the real extremists?

How the media treats Joe Biden and how it treats Todd Akin: Who are the real extremists?

Jeffrey T. Kuhner Vice President Joseph R. Biden is mentally unstable, and it’s time for Republicans to point it out. For years, Mr. Biden has been making outrageous comments that reveal not only his low intelligence, but also a dangerous detachment from reality. Yet the liberal media refuse to hold him accountable. Instead, their rationalization […]

The Cheney precedent: Will Ryan serve as ‘assistant president’?

The Cheney precedent: Will Ryan serve as ‘assistant president’?

Sol W. Sanders   Jack Garner, a Texan whom Franklin Delano Roosevelt chose as his first vice president for “balance,” put it succinctly: The vice presidency was “not worth a bucket of warm p–” (later cleaned up to “spit”). But Garner, ironically enough, helped block FDR’s power grab when that most charismatic of presidents tried […]
