SAN DIEGO - The National Association of Hispanic Journalists is getting good at producing embarrassing headlines.
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is impatient. Congress won't act on immigration, he says, and therefore he will. The White House is coy as to exactly what the president will do. But the leaks point to an executive order essentially legalizing an enormous new class of illegal immigrants, perhaps up to 5 million people.
World War I started one century ago. Wait! Don't stop reading.
WASHINGTON - John Kerry is upset by heavy criticism from Israelis - left, right and center - of his recent cease-fire diplomacy.
"Sorry to email you late on a Friday, but I need your urgent support," Nancy Pelosi wrote me.
SAN DIEGO - Just because you're well-known doesn't mean you're well-informed.
WASHINGTON - The president's demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it's for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement.
"You are all a lost generation."
WASHINGTON - Israel accepts an Egyptian-proposed Gaza cease-fire; Hamas keeps firing.
"Here's the difference between us," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu explained on "Fox News Sunday." "We're using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they're using their civilians to protect their missiles."
All you need to do is look at the headlines out of Central America to see why tens of thousands of children are ending up at our border.
WASHINGTON - As is his wont, Barack President Obama is treating the border crisis - more than 50,000 unaccompanied children crossing illegally - as a public relations problem. Where to photo op and where not. He still hasn't enunciated a policy. He may not even have one.
Abortion-rights protesters gathered outside the Supreme Court building Monday holding signs that read "Birth Control: Not My Boss's Business."
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court this week admonished the Environmental Protection Agency for overreaching in regulating greenhouse gases. The Clean Air Act covers polluters that emit 250 tons per year (or in some cases, 100 tons). This standard makes no sense if applied to greenhouse gases. Thousands of establishments from elementary schools to grocery stores would be, absurdly, covered. So the EPA arbitrarily chose 100,000 tons as the carbon dioxide threshold.
It's a fact of human nature that it's easier to talk about who's to blame for a problem than it is to figure out what to do about the problem.
"I don't understand how Jews in America can be Democrats first and Jewish second and support Israel along the line of just following their president," vented Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, on Boston Herald Radio last week.
President Barack Obama has no shortage of chutzpah. His message to Benjamin Netanyahu: Do as I say, not as I have done.
President Barack Obama got it two-thirds right when he said that the delayed confirmation of his attorney general nominee, Loretta Lynch, is owing to Senate dysfunction and Republican stubbornness.
Of all the idiocies uttered in reaction to Benjamin Netanyahu's stunning election victory, none is more ubiquitous than the idea that peace prospects are now dead because Netanyahu has declared that there will be no Palestinian state while he is Israel's prime minister.
I'm standing in the Starbucks line behind 10 other sleepyheads waiting to order my tall skinny cappuccino, otherwise known as a shot of coffee described as I wish to be.
It has been an Iranian tradition since 1979 to end Friday prayers with chants of "Death to America!"
Amid all the verbiage about Hillary Clinton's email, one irrefutable fact emerges: Polls will drive us crazy before the Clintons do.
She burned the tapes.
On March 2, the story broke that Hillary Clinton had possibly violated email regulations while secretary of state.
In the wake of Hillary Rodham Clinton's fairly disastrous press conference at the United Nations on Tuesday, there's only one conclusion shared by all parties: This was not how it was supposed to go.
I knew foster parents were badly needed in Hall County when my husband and I signed up.
Everyone has an idea of what the role of parent means.
About one month after getting approved as foster parents, my husband and I got our first placement.
It's 5:30 a.m. on a Saturday, and my husband taps me.
We got the call at 3 p.m. on a Monday. Two little ones needed a home.
