Obama’s perfect record on excusing Islamic terrorism has gotten results: Donald Trump

Special to WorldTribune.com By Mona Charen Whole doctoral dissertations could be devoted to the question of what makes President Obama angry and what does not. His Tuesday broadside against Donald Trump stood in marked contrast to Sunday’s somewhat-cold response to the Orlando massacre. This is a pattern. Mr. Obama did not name Trump, referring to […]

OK, let’s talk toilets: Hands off the Ladies’ Rooms!

Special to WorldTribune.com By Mona Charen If it concerns sex in any way, you can be sure that our culture will fixate on it and manage to defy common sense with hyperventilating indignation.

Special to WorldTribune.com By Mona Charen A new movie that touches upon the election prospects of one female candidate for president debuts this week. Will “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” provoke thousands of angry viewers to march on Hillary Clinton’s home with torchlights and pitchforks? Doubtful. The film is somewhat oblique.

Maybe CNBC should moderate more GOP debates

Special to WorldTribune.com By Mona Charen Jeb Bush’s campaign may be mortally wounded.

With Iran deal, Democrats have forfeited any claim to national leadership

Special to WorldTribune.com By Mona Charen The Democratic Party has been weak-minded on defense for decades, but with the Iran capitulation, they’ve achieved a new threshold of cowardice and treachery.
