How Many Betrayals Before the GOP Base Revolts

If the Democrat establishment operated like the Republican establishment, the most important advantage Hillary Clinton gains from avoiding a shotgun primary with Joe Biden is the ability to start flip-flopping early in an attempt to attract Republicans.

A New Planned Parenthood Committee!

Fresh from their triumphant deep dive into Benghazi, House Republicans have announced Friday they've created another Special committee, this time to - of course - Planned Parenthood. I kid you not! And since the 2016 election is so clearly on their minds, perhaps they'll summon their favorite star witness. Just imagine...

No Sugarcoating Paul Ryan's History on Immigration

Paul Ryan stands in the news once again. This time, attention is centered on his quest to become U.S. House Speaker. Two years ago, he stood somewhere else; with fellow congressman Luis Gutierrez at a Chicago rally.

A Small But Real IRS Reform That Must Pass

President Obama's Department of Justice has made it official: Lois Lerner, the IRS executive who invoked the Fifth Amendment to avoid incriminating herself when questioned about her role in targeting conservative groups, will face no criminal charges. Worse, even the one IRS reform that enjoys broad bipartisan support in Congress - a ban on the IRS trying to assess gift tax on contributions to non-profit organizations, which they infamously attempted against conservative donors - has stalled in the Senate after passing the House unanimously early in the year. It should be included in one of the must-pass bills expected to pass ...

Missing the Real Problem on Benghazi

Benghazi Game Lost Before it Began

Here's some free advice for congressional Republicans. If you don't want to make it seem like you're focusing on Hillary Clinton, it's a bad idea to put her in front of television cameras for 11 hours. The Benghazi hearing was a failure as both a show trial and as an example of representative democracy, succeeding only as a showcase for a woman of epic patience if nothing else.

Why We Must Hold Fast To The First Amendment

In the biography, "Churchill: A Life," author Martin Gilbert writes how Winston Churchill loudly voiced his grave concerns about the apathy shared by those seemingly impervious to the malevolent "National Socialism" movement's intention to steam through Europe like volcanic lava, destroying everything in its path including free speech.

Media Not Interested in Obamacare Disaster

Subdued by distracting media elites chattering about Joe Biden's non-campaign for president, behind the curtain of the alleged "debacle" and "catastrophic dysfunction" of the Republican House Speaker race and swept under the carpet embroidered with the words, "Trump Says Bush Responsible for 9/11," is news that should be dominating newspaper front pages across the country.

Angry Hillary Hates All Conservatives

Russia Is Worried About Obama's America

"Beware Greeks bearing gifts" was a handy rule-of-thumb for savvy governments in the ancient Mediterranean world. Troy's disastrous experience with Odysseus' wooden horse ruined the going-away-gift tradition for centuries.

Could Medicare be Obamacare's Savior?

Like it or not, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the law of the land. Whether or not it will prove to protect patients and facilitate affordable medical care is another story.
