5 Lies That Have Shaped the Obama Presidency
September 13 , 2014 | New York Post | by Jack Cashill

Obama with fingers crossed behind backNew York Post -- If past presidents are remembered for their signature achievements, Obama will be remembered for his signature lie: “If you like your health care plan blah, blah, blah.” The reader knows the rest. Although the most consequential of Obama’s lies — it got him reelected — it’s far from his only prevarication. Click link and read more . . .



Force Feeding Islam to the Heartland
September 10 , 2014 | | by Jack Cashill

As anyone who has spoken honestly about Islam knows, multiculturalism isn’t all that “multi” and relativism isn’t all that relative.

This lesson I learned in an unexpected place, the venerable Chautauqua (sha-TAWK-wa) Institution in Western New York, a physically beautiful summer colony with a strong ecumenical Christian tradition. . . Click link and read more . . .

Black-on-White Cop Shooting Tests Media Integrity
August 27 , 2014 | | by Jack Cashill

Okay, I know, the phrase “media integrity” may strike the reader as an oxymoron like, say, “postal service.” But the Post Office, for all its faults, defies the oxymoron by delivering my mail 99 percent of the time.

As was evident in Ferguson, Missouri, the major media—CNN most disgracefully—made no effort at all to undo its oxymoronic reputation. Indeed, the word “moronic” does no injustice to the coverage.Click link and read more . . .

August 06, 2014 | | by Jack Cashill

On Tuesday of this week, Barack Obama turned 53. Or so we were told.

Barack Obama’s Most Tragic Failure
July 30, 2014 | | by Jack Cashill

The lead article in Wednesday’s Kansas City Star email blast spoke of President Barack Obama’s visit to the city on Tuesday.

At an inner city barbecue joint, the reader learned, Obama “met with four White House-chosen Kansas Citians over a half slab of ribs and a Bud Light and discussed how what he does in Washington registers in people’s lives.”

On that same day, about a mile or so away, an event sparked the second lead Star article. As the headline suggests, even the Star editors could not miss the irony, “Nonviolence rally marred by multiple fights.”Click link and read more . . .

Why Putin Ignores Obama on MH17
July 23, 2014 | | by Jack Cashill

On Monday, in addressing the shoot down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17), President Barack Obama demanded that Russian President Vladimir Putin provide "immediate and full access to the crash site."

Obama then warned Putin that Russia would face additional sanctions if he refused to act. Said Obama, “What exactly are they trying to hide?"

Putin had to find all this posturing by Obama more than a little amusing.Click link and read more . . .


Anderson Cooper:
“ TWA Flight 800 Was Shot Down”

July 22, 2014 | | by Jack Cashill

Some truths CNN reveals only accidentally. One such truth Anderson Cooper (left) shared on the night of July 17. In speaking about the shoot down of Malaysian airliner MH 17 earlier that day, Cooper referred back to “July 17, 1996, when TWA Flight 800 was shot down off the coast of Long Island in New York.”

TWA Flight 800 was fresh on Cooper’s mind. Two days earlier, Cooper hosted a CNN special report on the subject, “Witnessed: The Crash of TWA Flight 800.” Click link and read more . . .

How Barack Obama Created the Border Crisis
July 9, 2014 | | by Jack Cashill

On Tuesday President Barack Obama urged Congress to cough up $4 billion to deal with the flood of children from Central America—and others from parts unknown--crossing the border into Texas.

Obama called this mess “an urgent humanitarian situation,” but what he not do is take responsibility for almost single-handedly causing this mess two years prior.Click link and read more . . .

Why Congress Must Re-Open the TWA 800 Investigation
July 7, 2014 | | by Jack Cashill

On July 2, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) announced that it would not reopen the investigation into the destruction of TWA 800. This was the Boeing 747 that was blown out of the sky ten miles south of the Long Island coast on July 17, 1996, killing all 230 people on board.

The TWA 800 Project, a team of former aviation investigators and scientists, had petitioned the NTSB to examine evidence that pointed towards a likely missile strike on the airline. Not surprisingly, the NTSB, which had invested four years of resources to prove some other theory, any other theory, chose to stick to its original findings that flammable fuel/air vapors somehow caused the explosion.Click link and read more . . .

Picture of Hillary Rodham, 1975. Read more . . .The emergence this past week of a recorded interview from the mid-1980s proves anew that Hillary Clinton has been waging her own personal war on women for decades and that the war is driven by nothing so much as a class-based contempt.

The interview involved a 1975 case in which a man named Thomas Taylor, now dead, was accused of raping a twelve-year old girl. As the head of an Arkansas Legal Aid clinic, Clinton (1975 photo at left) defended Taylor.Click link and read more . . .

June 11, 2014 | AmericanThinker .com | by Jack Cashill

Twenty years ago this week, former football great O. J. Simpson savagely attacked and killed his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman. The double murder and subsequent trial generated a small library of videos and books, the most recent of the latter being Kim Goldman’s, Can't Forgive: My 20-Year Battle with O.J. Simpson. I just finished Goldman’s insightful memoir yesterday. I must have read at least ten other books on the case. Click link and read more . . .
