Joseph Cotto: Tough times for Christian conservatives

Donald Kaul: That whiff of hypocrisy

Joseph Cotto: Remember the ‘B’ word
Things are looking up for Hillary Clinton. Her daughter, Chelsea, recently went through a high-profile pregnancy and gave birth to a celebration fit for major royalty. Bill has long-since reinvented himself as a human rights crusader and political science guru. The days of Monica...

Dick Polman: Christie has gone to pot
Amidst all the early GOP presidential jockeying, let’s check on our Jersey boy Chris Christie. Looks like the tough-love guv surfaced this week on a radio show and ranted about reefer madness. “Right now, we’ve got the states of Colorado and Washington (defying) federal law...

Michael Reagan: Hillary for America? Why?
Hillary’s all in for 2016. Whoopee. She officially arrived Sunday — but not in the flesh. She announced her decision with a low-key tweet and a two-minute video featuring a diverse lineup of adorable Democrat voters, a sappy message about being “a champion of everyday Americans”...

Donald Kaul: The Road to ruin
That harsh whine you hear in the background — like a buzzsaw getting ready for a log to come down the chute — is the vast right-wing conspiracy revving its engines. America Rising, an opposition research Super PAC that lives to trash the Clintons, dashed off a press release challenging...

Michael Reagan: Republicans versus Republicans
When Ted Cruz officially stepped into the 2016 presidential ring this week the boo-birds attacked immediately. But it wasn’t just the liberals of the mainstream media who threw bottles and chairs at the conservative Texan. It was Cruz’s fellow Republicans. Is he qualified after...
