As America observed the 15th anniversary of 9/11, Hollywood released a film about an aviation disaster with a very different outcome. SULLY, directed by Clint Eastwood, tells the true story of the 2009 “Miracle on the Hudson” with the superb Tom Hanks as pilot Chesley Sullenberger, who landed his crippled plane on the River and saved his 155 passengers.
Most of the film focuses on the investigation of Sully immediately following the incident, questioning whether he could have landed the plane at a nearby airport, as Air Traffic Control instructed. The underlying message is appreciation for the quiet heroism of hard-working, everyday Americans doing their jobs with pride and competence—air traffic controllers, cops, Coast Guardsmen, ferry workers and, yes, airline personnel.
The film arrives in the midst of a sullen season when the nation needs reminders of just that sort of dignity and decency.

From the regularly silly Christiane Amanpour (Fox News). Where was she as Cosmopolitan harassed Ivanka Trump over her father’s generous maternity leave plans? (CNN). From Amy Otto: Cosmopolitan is rabidly pro-abortion, which might be why they have zero staff who understand what maternity leave is. The interviewer’s main objection to Trump’s maternity leave proposal is that it focuses on women, who give birth (The Federalist).Read More »
Hillary had tough week as she fell literally and in the polls. We also look at her insult to millions of Americans whom she declared “irredeemable.”

This month, The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights released a report entitled: “Peaceful Coexistence: Reconciling Nondiscrimination Policies with Civil Liberties.” The document, ironically, does not call for peace but rather aggression toward people of religious belief.
In the mind of Commission Chairman, Martin Castro, the term “religious liberty” is nothing but a code word for intolerance and discrimination. Hillary Clinton has expressed similar comments recently about religious beliefs that simply need to be changed to fit with the times.
According to Wall Street Journal editor Bill McGurn, the first freedom in the Bill of Rights is now being trashed by our government.
On Friday this week schools that receive any federal aid must observe “Constitution Day,” in order to commemorate the 39 patriots who signed the document in 1787.
Come November, the nation will go to the ballot box to decide if religious liberty—the “First Liberty”—enshrined in the Constitution, still matters.

By every measure, Hillary Clinton suffered a disastrous weekend surrounding the 9/11 anniversary.
Her near collapse on Sunday morning hurt her badly not just because it left the impression of frailty and ill-health, but due to foolish attempts to conceal her pneumonia from a public that deserved candor. Even worse, her comments on Friday night smearing half of Trump’s supporters with charges of racism and homophobia will undermine all her attempts to woo independent or Republican voters.
The main impulse behind much of the support for Donald Trump involves an angry rebellion against political correctness. Hillary only intensifies that anger by invoking precisely the sort of smug, stifling leftist pieties most Americans resent.
This patronizing attitude could very well turn an election she couldn’t lose into a campaign that she can’t win.

DNC interim Chair Donna Brazile went further off the reservation with this comment: “There’s one person who stands to benefit from these criminal acts, and that’s (Republican presidential nominee) Donald Trump” (Reuters). Among the emails, Colin Powell warned Hillary not to use him as a scapegoat for her email scandal (Fox News). The media is more excited about Powell’s criticism of Trump (ABC News).Read More »
