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.

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.

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.

Can The Experts Rescue Halloween?

According to the National Retail Foundation, Americans will spend $6.9 billion on Halloween this year. To the untrained observer, that sounds as if the autumn celebration will be around forever; but I am concerned for the long-term health of the holiday.

Red Meat vs Creme Brulee

If the disappointment of everyone expecting fireworks at the first Democratic debate exhibited itself as perspiration, we could declare the California drought over. A few soggy matches might have been lit but that was it. Heavy on the smoke, non-existent on the flame.
