Sen. Barack Obama on Why He Voted Against Samuel Alito for the Supreme Court

Posted: February 15, 2016 at 3:40 pm   /   Politics

The sudden death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia immediately began discussion of who President Obama will appoint to take his place, and whether the U.S. Senate should take up the nomination in an election year. I look back at Obama’s views on Supreme Court nominees seems appropriate. On January 26, 2006, the junior senator […]

Posted: February 10, 2016 at 9:01 pm   /   Politics

The U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) did something remarkable on Tuesday: It momentarily respected the separation of powers and finally shouted “ENOUGH!” to the lawless rule of the Environmental Protection Agency. SCOTUS issued a stay on Obama’s “Clean Power Plan,” which is a radical law-by-decree scheme to do nothing less than put this nation’s enormously complex energy-delivery system into […]

Talkin’ unemployment blues

Posted: February 8, 2016 at 4:38 am   /   Politics

(Scott Johnson) President Obama made an appearance in the White House press room on Friday to take a victory lap over the fall of the official unemployment rate (U-3) to 4.9 percent (video below, about 15 minutes).

Washington Post air brushes Obama’s mosque visit

Posted: February 5, 2016 at 10:38 am   /   Politics

(Paul Mirengoff) Greg Jaffe of the Washington Post provides a near-worshipful account of President Obama’s Wednesday visit to a Baltimore mosque. Jaffe’s third paragraph is representative: The president often sounded like a concerned parent, worried for the country he leads as it prepares to replace him in a presidential election marked by inflammatory and anti-Islamic […]

Sanders: What Will His Socialist Plan Do to YOUR Medical Care?

Posted: February 4, 2016 at 8:35 am   /   Politics

There is one thing that supporters and detractors of Bernie Sanders might agree on: he seems to be honest about his convictions. He is an avowed socialist, instead of pretending to believe in a role for private insurance. Unlike Barack Obama, his answer to the question “Do you get to keep your insurance plan?” is […]

Obama defends the faith

Posted: February 3, 2016 at 5:53 am   /   Politics

(Scott Johnson) President Obama seems to believe in nothing more than he does the defense of Islam. He specializes in pronouncements on what is truly Islamic and what is not. Such pronouncements are always intended to preserve the good name of Islam. Al Qaeda, of course, not Islamic. The Islamic State, not Islamic. San Bernardino […]
