This is the first Coulter column I have read in years. I used to love reading and hearing from her. But then she became shrill and ugly and she seemed to have lost the stilleto-piercing wit. I have missed her. I enjoyed this column and I appreciate the OP for putting it up.

It really does get tiring. Just what we need is another play about slavery and our "hidden past". Or another federal law banning lynching. Yeah, yeah we know all white men are bad, Jussie Smollett is innocent and Donald Trump is a dictator.

After experiencing the same as #1 & #3 with a different but very recent article from Coulter I am pleased to see another solid piece of work from her after I too have stopped reading her for quite some time. I don't know all the details about this case but what I do think I know disturbs me. Did he actually rape anybody? It would seem that he traded the act for fame and fortune and some women understandably found that revolting and regrettable, but didn't they engage in a trade willingly? How is that different from more common forms of prostitution? Is he a scumbag, is he a john, did he cross lines of indecency and molestation prior to the point where some women either walked away or took the deal? I most certainly believe so based on my limited knowledge but does that make it rape? Has anyone said that they decided to decline the trade and walk away but he forced himself on her regardless? If so I have not heard of such. When punishment is meted out, or not, to serve popular public opinion and not the written law, we are all in big trouble. But of course we are, after all, Hillary is still waddling and stumbling around free and General Flynn is still in trouble.

Of course he raped everybody. Intromission was the price of admission.

Good point. "But how many actresses -- [snip] -- are really no different from the average L.A. waitress, except they were willing to have sex with Harvey Weinstein or some similarly hideous beast?" ALL of them. Weinstein is a pig, but these women agreed to pay the price for stardom, and then welshed on the deal, after they got the stardom. Two pigs, agreeing on a transaction - I don't really care about there decades late whining.

Can't agree with 1 and 3. I used to love Ann Coulter for her insight, take-no-prisoners attitude and rapier wit. Clicked on this link only because I saw her name but was disappointed. Don't know what happened, but Ann's wit seems to have lost both its edge and its point.

As someone who follows politics quite closely, I'm often fascinated when a potent piece of opposition research against a major candidate for office percolates below the radar for years, yet never quite breaks through. Have you ever heard of 'Sierra Blanca,' as it relates to Bernie Sanders? Neither had I. Neither had hardly any voters, I'd wager. Well, expect that to change, sooner or later. Tim Miller, a hardcore anti-Trump conservative, is adamantly opposed to Democrats nominating Sanders. He's written a piece outlining a somewhat obscure episode that he anticipates would

The New York Sun marks with regret the New York Times’ decision to retreat from its tradition of issuing daily editorials. We may lurk well to the right of the Times, but we’ve read nearly every editorial the Gray Lady has issued in our lifetime — even in recent years, when her editorials have helped lead the leftward lurch of the Democratic Party and fanned the heavy swells in which liberalism has capsized. The Times says it is not ending altogether the unsigned editorials that sketch the official position of the newspaper that claims to deliver all the news that’s fit to print.

Democrats Debate: Senator Sanders Emerges

Where in the blazes were the rest of the Democrats on the stage when Israel was brought up in Charleston? How could they let slide Senator Sanders’ libels of its elected premier? It took none other than Israel’s foreign minister, Yisrael Katz, to put Senator Sanders’ dishonest, ad hominem remarks on Israel into proper relief — as so “horrifying” that those who support the Jewish state would be unable to support Senator Sanders for president. The catastrophe in Charleston was a reminder, if one were needed, that the Democratic front-runner is cut from the same cloth as the leader of the Labor Party in Britain, Jeremy Corbyn.

Many in Hollywood routinely mock religion and poke fun at worshippers. But an upcoming Christian film, I Still Believe, is challenging that trend by winning over the media – even before its release. The film, directed by Andrew and Jon Erwin and distributed by Lionsgate, is based on the love story of award-winning Christian singer Jeremy Camp and his first wife, Melissa. Its star-studded cast includes KJ Apa, Britt Robertson, Shania Twain, and Gary Sinise. Although the movie doesn’t hit theaters until March 13

On Saturday, February 22, I received near simultaneous text messages from an old federal agent buddy and my boss that a dear friend had been found dead from a gunshot wound to the chest. I could not believe it. I went to the Internet to search for any public reports to confirm this information, which I hoped would turn out to be some kind of horrible joke or “fake news.” I could find nothing. Yet it was not a joke or fake news.

There are 329 million people in the United States of America. They are spread across 3.8 million square miles. The presidential race will be determined by the actions of three of them: Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, and Michael Bloomberg. Each is a New Yorker. Each hails from a different borough. Trump was born in Queens, Sanders in Brooklyn, and Bloomberg, a native of Massachusetts, has worked and lived in Manhattan since 1973. For a long time New York City politics stopped at the Hudson River. Now the nation faces the prospect of eight months of septuagenarian New Yorkers yelling at each other. The geographic, regional,

The trial of Harvey Weinstein has provided ample evidence that he is a grotesque pig lacking empathy for the many women he preyed upon, but probably not enough to prove he should be convicted as a rapist. Prepare for an acquittal or a deadlock after the jury goes out Tuesday, because anyone who has sat through the trial can see the prosecution has struggled to prove its case. If Weinstein does walk, it will be a tragedy for his accusers, who at the very least were degraded by

Writing on Presidents’ Day, there comes back to me the notion I have held for more than 20 years that the holiday should be moved forward one week and extended to include the next two great presidents after Washington and Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt (born January 30, 1882) and Ronald Reagan (born February 6, 1911). I was contemplating this when Mark Levin’s show on Fox News appeared on my television screen and the guest was Burton Folsom, a retired professor from Hillsdale College, an exceptionally fine university which had the generosity (and questionable judgment) to invite me on one of its lecture-cruises around the British Isles

A program funded by 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is paying the salaries of lawyers who are farmed out to liberal state attorney general offices to pursue climate-based litigation -- a compact critics say amounts to Bloomberg buying state law enforcement employees to advance his preferred political agenda. The arrangement, which currently pays the salaries of Special Assistant Attorneys General (SAAGs) in 10 Democratic AG offices, is drawing new scrutiny now that Bloomberg is running for president. The New York University School of Law's State Energy & Environmental Impact Center, which was started in 2017 with $5.6 million from Bloomberg's nonprofit,

This Presidents Day, I am thinking of John Hancock. Hancock was president of the Continental Congress, the body that named George Washington general of the Continental Army. Hancock was the Michael Bloomberg of his day — a politician simultaneously appreciated for his great wealth and resented for it. I tell this story in my biography of Samuel Adams. John Hancock had inherited from his uncle, the merchant Thomas Hancock, a fortune of what today would be about $15 million. John Hancock may have used some of this money to help Adams, who was poorer, pay off debts Adams owed.

Should white people sing black spirituals? Western Michigan University is grappling with that question after a black student was triggered and suffered a social media meltdown when a predominantly white choir sang “Wade in the Water.” “So apparently Western Michigan University thinks it’s ok for WHITE peoples to sing negro spirituals while the instructor talking bout ‘these songs don’t belong to one race.’ They sure as hell DO,” WMU music major Shaylee Faught wrote on a social media now seen by more than 1 million people. Faught got triggered after the choir’s black conductor reportedly told the audience that the selections were “American songs” performed “for everyone” and “have no ethnicity.”

A seven-month deployment in Afghanistan shrouded in secrecy is a key piece of Pete Buttigieg’s pitch to voters in the 2020 presidential race, with the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor arguing that his status as a veteran and his time in a war zone give him foreign policy gravitas and first-hand military experience none of his Democratic primary rivals can claim. That supposed strength, however, ultimately could become a weakness in a potential general election match-up with President Trump and a Republican Party that is already eyeing ways to turn Mr. Buttigieg’s time as a Naval intelligence officer into a liability. Some of those who served alongside Mr. Buttigieg in Afghanistan

A number of pundits have recently argued that younger voters, especially those under 30, are less inclined to be bothered when they hear the word “socialism,” since they have no firsthand memory of the Cold War. To some extent, this must be true. Those who weren’t alive during socialism’s cruelest catastrophes — or even its many banal failures — will be less put off by the idea. Then again, if a presidential candidate were praising the excellent public transportation system of the Third Reich or going on about the some alleged benefit to American slavery, they would rightly be chased from the public square forever

Harvey Weinstein is “in disbelief,” but “not delusional,” about his conviction, as he remains under care at Bellevue Hospital before being transferred to Rikers Island, where he’ll be put behind bars. “He’s still in disbelief of the charges he was convicted of. He’s very consistent about his innocence,” one of Weinstein’s attorneys, Arthur Aidala, told Variety over the phone late Wednesday night. Weinstein was convicted Monday on two felony charges: criminal sex act in the first-degree for assaulting Miriam Haley by forcible oral sex in 2006, and rape in the third-degree for raping Jessica Mann in a New York City hotel room in 2013.

A little more than a year ago, the New Jersey Legislature passed, and Gov. Phil Murphy signed, a law mandating the teaching of LGBT subject matter in public school curriculum, beginning in 2020-21.In response to the law, the activist group Garden State Equality has prepared a curriculum, currently piloted in 12 New Jersey schools and planned to be employed statewide in the fall. This is consistent with Murphy’s vision. At Garden State Equality’s 2019 Ball, he said, “I applaud Garden State Equality for not only leading this effort, but for your continued work in helping to craft this curriculum.”

Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., appeared to threaten Donald Trump Jr., the president's son, on Friday, warning that they better not be in close quarters or they could have a "serious altercation." He made those comments on MSNBC while discussing the coronavirus. MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson had asked the congressman about Trump Jr.'s argument that Democrats were hoping for deaths from the coronavirus so it could end his father's winning streak. "He should not be near me when he says that," Garamendi responded. "There would be a serious altercation. That is just totally outrageous. That is totally outrageous."

The U.S. military is about to experience another first: Barring injury in the next few weeks, an enlisted soldier is about to become the first female Green Beret in Army history. That comes seven years after the Pentagon lifted its longtime ban on women serving in combat roles. As with all special operators, the military does not release names or identification. But the woman is expected to graduate soon from the rugged, roughly year-long qualification course and become a Special Forces engineer sergeant. Another woman is also making her way through the demanding yearlong course. The length of the course depends on the operator’s specialty

Chicago Public Schools will no longer observe Columbus Day. The Board of Education voted to change the name to Indigenous Peoples’ Day as other cities and school districts have done. The board’s vote on the issue was 5-2. The school holiday will be on Oct. 12 this year. CPS is working to develop new curriculum to more accurately tell the history of Native American cultures. The holiday has been controversial because the day has been used to commemorate Italian explorer Christopher Columbus who claimed to have discovered America in 1492. The area was already populated by indigenous people and some have argued that Columbus’ actions led to their genocide.

The change originated when female Air Force Academy cadets asked Goldfein why
