Murdock: Reasonable prosecutors would charge Crooked Hillary on Emailgate
FBI Director James Comey announced Tuesday that 2,113 classified e-mails were discovered among Hillary Clinton’s multiplicity of servers and devices. When Clinton mishandled them, 113 were classified, including 37 Secret e-mail chains and eight labeled Top Secret. According to the...

Murdock: U.S. should Amerexit from D.C.’s death grip
NEW YORK -- The morning after Great Britain’s June 23 Brexit referendum, former London mayor and perhaps future prime minister Boris Johnson said British voters “decided that it is time to take back control from a European Union that has become too remote, too opaque, and not...

Murdock: Obama rests comfortably after Paris attacks
NEW YORK -- At last, a western leader is at war with radical Islam. Too bad it is not Obama. Leave it to a French socialist, namely President Francois Hollande, to take the battle to ISIS. “It’s an act of war,” he declared, soon after the terrorist group’s deadly rampage...

Murdock: Civilized Muslims tell savage Muslims what they need to hear
Finally. Prominent Muslim officials are standing up and telling radical Muslims to stop their madness, lay down their weapons and join the 21st century. Just days after militant-Islamic terrorists turned Charlie Hebdo’s Paris newsroom into a killing field, the mayor of Rotterdam...

Murdock: What Obama can learn from James Brown
Obama should learn from the late, great Godfather of Soul. As James Brown once sang: “Get up. Get into it. Get involved.” Obama is hopelessly lost, adrift, dazed and confused. Obama seems eerily detached from events. As NBC’s Brian Williams noted Tuesday, Americans have “the...

Murdock: What do liberals want? Control
Modern liberalism has little to do with sticking up for the little guy or comforting the poor. It’s all about telling people what to do — around the clock. Amplifying the efforts of the often busybody Bush administration, Obama has replaced Uncle Sam with a giant millipede whose...

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling deserves the nation’s thanks for only one thing: reminding Americans how real racism looks. The word “racism” gets tossed around like confetti these days, usually by Democrats seeking to cripple Republicans with one of the ugliest...

Murdock: Gay by chromosomes or by choice? Who cares?
Are gay people “born that way” or is it “a choice?” Who gives a damn? That first question agitates some people — as liberal commenter Ezra Klein now knows. He recently hired Brandon Ambrosino for his new website, vox.com. Ambrosino is a 23-year-old gay man. But that does...

Murdock: Energy reset could save Obama’s foreign, domestic policies
