Obama has no Afghanistan strategy, and our soldiers are dying

Posted: September 24, 2012 at 12:00 pm   /   Elections, Politics

During the Bush years, our foreign military engagements were a source of obsession in the media and on the left. We were treated to body count reports, scathing indictments of the policies, and constant agitation from the anti-war movement. Now that Obama is Commander-and-Chief, what we mostly hear is silence. Whatever the relative merits, or […]

Bees and Sons of Bees

Posted: September 23, 2012 at 2:00 pm   /   Politics

When I hear liberals in the media and Congress repeating Obama’s lies while doing their best to make Romney appear to be a tax chiseler, a killer of cancer victims, a job destroyer and a candidate doomed to lose, I am reminded that whereas bees give up their lives to protect their queen, liberals are […]

Posted: September 21, 2012 at 3:00 pm   /   Politics

By Sharon Sebastian That Jihadists demonstrate dwindling fear of Barack Obama portends a crisis of international proportions that threatens global stability. As Obama’s domestic economic policies wreak havoc on families and our nation, his kid-gloves foreign policy has now proven to be deadly with the loss of American lives. Still, Obama rejects that the uprising […]

Newsweek Finally Makes News

Posted: September 17, 2012 at 4:00 pm   /   Elections, Politics

Even though Niall Ferguson, a Republican who served as an advisor to John McCain in 2008, wrote the cover story for Newsweek titled “Hit the Road, Barack,” it is the first notable sign that the mass media has finally unlocked its lips from Obama’s posterior. As my friend, Bernard Goldberg, has long chronicled, the media […]

Psychopaths, sociopaths, and Obama supporters

Posted: September 15, 2012 at 10:08 am   /   Elections, Politics

In our home, the normal morning routine—cleaning, preparing breakfast, and getting our son ready for school—almost always includes a political discussion of some sort. Not so long ago, a revelation occurred in the midst of such a conversation: Thinking of the historical figures to whom the political left owes its philosophies, its ideas, and its […]

Obama economist: Higher taxes on the rich won’t help

Posted: September 12, 2012 at 10:30 am   /   Elections, Politics, Videos

Raising taxes on upper-income earners is not just an article of faith on the political left, it’s a signature feature of Barack Obama’s economic policies. But what if one of his own economic advisors, Christina Romer, came out with a study showing that taxing the rich at higher rates won’t bring in more revenue . […]

Labor Force Participation Rate — An Indictment of Obamanomics

Posted: September 10, 2012 at 3:15 pm   /   Elections, Politics

Finally the media are beginning to report, regularly, the Labor Force Participation Rate (LFPR).  The LFPR is simply the percentage of the working population (age 16 and over) that is actually employed. The traditional “unemployment rate” is now widely acknowledged to have a weakness — namely, it does not reflect the number of people who […]

Has the American character changed?

Posted: September 10, 2012 at 8:13 am   /   Elections, Politics

A note of concern has swept across the ranks of the political right over the last few days. Not panic—more of a someone-just-walked-across-my-grave kind of shudder. The DNC was not any better than the RNC. It wasn’t more magnificent or thrilling, and it didn’t trump the RNC by presenting a grand plan filled with tantalizing specifics. Take […]

Democrats hate freedom

Posted: September 9, 2012 at 11:00 am   /   Politics, Videos

Democrats play the Nazi card at the drop of a hat. (Wait, was that a mixed metaphor?) It’s such a common part of their rhetoric that the words Nazi and fascist are rapidly being denuded of meaning (just like “rape” and “racist” are). If you are a conservative, Republican, or libertarian (increasingly targets of the […]
