The Ryan-Obama Omnibus, Runaway Big Government, and the Constitution’s Article V

Posted: December 19, 2015 at 3:22 pm   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

The Ryan-Obama omnibus bill that just passed Congress has Big-Government politicians in both parties rejoicing. It has a $1.1 trillion price tag and does nothing to reduce the gargantuan debt we are passing on to our children and grandchildren. Including entitlement obligations, that debt now exceeds a stupefying $200 trillion. The omnibus bill is over 2000 pages […]

Video: Chris Matthews Shoves MRC Reporter, Says “Go to Hell”

Posted: December 16, 2015 at 8:45 am   /   Entertainment, Features, Politics, Top Stories, Videos

Back in 2008, when Barack Hussein Obama was spinning vacant liberal heads with his booming, TelePrompTered leftist rhetoric, empty suits at mainstream media outlets were euphoric. Chris Matthews, of MSNBC shame, was particularly swept up in ObaMania, gushing that every time Obama spoke, it sent “a thrill going up my leg.” This outburst has provided […]

Posted: December 15, 2015 at 5:08 am   /   Politics

(Scott Johnson) President Obama took a brief trip across the river to the Pentagon in order to hold a meeting with a subset of his national security team.

Vetting Ted Cruz

Posted: December 14, 2015 at 6:13 pm   /   Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Ted Cruz has been a luminescent beacon of hope for conservatives and libertarians since he stepped into the political spotlight in 2012. The freshman senator quickly cemented his reputation as a steel-spined, anti-Establishment maverick, inspiring evocative street art like Sabo’s infamous ‘Blacklisted and Loving It’ piece, or Cruz as the ‘Mockingjay’ – the iconic rebellious […]

Close the stupidity loophole!

Posted: December 14, 2015 at 5:53 am   /   Politics

(Scott Johnson) You might say that President Obama has staked his political career on the stupidity of the American people — on those who believed his “no blue America, no red America” shtick, his messianic pretensions, or his lies peddling Obamacare, to take just a few examples. A lot of smart people fell for his […]

History is indifferent

Posted: December 14, 2015 at 5:38 am   /   Politics

(Scott Johnson) The rise of Barack Obama is a sign of the indifference of history to the well-being of the United States and, his Nobel Peace Prize to the contrary notwithstanding, the world. If history gave a damn, Barack Obama would still be voting “present” in the Illinois legislature, just to prove his existence to […]

[NOTE:Dr. Roger Bezdek is the co-author of this piece.] Paris climate talks this week descended into madcap all-night negotiations, as delegates desperately tried to salvage some kind of agreement beyond empty promises to do something sometime about what President Obama insists […]

Obama’s disgraceful Hanukkah party

Posted: December 12, 2015 at 2:08 pm   /   Politics

(Paul Mirengoff) If this account of the White House Hanukkah party is accurate, then President Obama’s politicization of everything has reached a new low. According to Daniel Greenfield: Obama’s own remarks were boilerplate inoffensive stuff. Israel’s President Rivlin, a political hack who desperately sucks up to the media, was equally insipid. But the White House […]
