Ebola: ‘We got this’ But do we?

I don’t know whether it’s bad luck, over-confidence or, perhaps, we just don’t know enough about Ebola yet, but it sure looks like President Obama and the CDC need to re-evaluate their talking point to the American people about the dangers of Ebola spreading in the United States.

Oh, ouch, Mr. President, these barbs will sting

Somewhere within the faculty lounge environs otherwise known as the Obama White House, a starry-eyed Obamatron puts down his pumpkin spice latte and says: “Dude, with friends like old man Panetta, who needs enemies?”

Why Israel needs global help

If you care about peace in the Middle East, the speech Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently gave to the U.N. should be required reading. If you are an American and you voted for Barack Obama, please read it twice.

Classic Obama avoidance

If you want to witness the unbelievable disconnect of this president from reality, look at the interview he did with “60 Minutes” on Sunday night.

Too many revisionists spoil the history

Some 150 years ago, Christopher “Kit” Carson was the nation’s No. 1 Western pioneer hero. He helped blaze a trail through Nevada to the West Coast, receiving much gratitude from America’s government and her people.

Sen. Gillibrand’s credibility gap

“If he lied, then he has to step down,” Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said this week as she jumped in with both feet in the Ray Rice domestic abuse case.

I am re-running this with permission. It’s from my good pal, Evan Wallach. Folks will remember him from his days in Las Vegas with Lionel, Sawyer and Collins. He was the Review-Journal’s outside attorney as well as the kick-ass attorney for the Nevada Press Association.

Wish we were going to war with a Michael Corleone, instead of Fredo

For Las Vegas aficionados who watched the president’s speech tonight on the ISIS terror threat, this line from Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic will resonate: “Michael Corleone’s fatalistic insight about the mafia also holds true for presidents in the Middle East: ‘Just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in.’
