Afghanistan is a sovereign…

Yes, Virginia, There is a Liberal Press

Chris Christie knew. So did Barack Obama and Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. All have been described by insiders as top-down leaders running a tightly controlled office. Rick McKee / Augusta Chronicle Conservatives realize the New Jersey Governor had to know the alleged “traffic study” foisted upon thousands of commuters by his closest advisors was at…

WILL DUR$T’$ 2013 XMA$ GIFT WI$H LI$T

  It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And finally over. Thank the maker. Because if The Little Drummer Boy was played within my immediate vicinity one more time, somebody was going to have a bacon-flavored candy cane crammed into an orifice that doesn’t naturally accommodate candy canes. Bacon or otherwise. Adam Zyglis /…

This is What Peace Looks Like

During the 2008 election, candidate Barack Obama was derisively referred to as “The One.” His opponent’s attack ads implied he was the Messiah. “He has anointed himself ready to carry the burden of The One,” went the infamous TV spot. Some wondered if this wasn’t a dog whistle to the Apocalypse-minded Americans who weren’t put…

Liberals’ Hunger Games

Welcome to the Liberals’ version of the Hunger Games, America; unapologetically brought to you by our Progressive friends in the Democrat Party, whose economic policies have lifted a record number of Americans from the middle class and plopped them face down — into poverty the past five years. Nate Beeler / Columbus Dispatch I know.…

Take Advantage of Obama’s Great Gift

  America finally understands Obamacare. Day after day, the president’s signature legislative achievement is proving to be the federal fiasco everyone predicted it would be.

Zero Hero

  The perfect time to address disappointment is go to never and wait. Most of us would rather speak of inadvertent bowel movements in public. Especially when the person you’re bummed with is a loved one. Whatever it takes not to look them in the eye: going so far as to hold your hands over…

Obama’s big lie

“All we’ve been hearing the last three years is if you like your policy you can keep it…. I’m infuriated because I was lied to,” one woman told this newspaper, as part of a story on how some middle-class Californians have been stunned to learn the real costs of Obamacare. And that lie looks like…

An Exit Strategy From Afghanistan

As it winds down its 12-year-old military commitment in Afghanistan, the United States is still looking for a face-saving way out of a conflict that seems headed, at best, for a stalemate. The new bilateral security agreement between the two nations is part of that exit strategy. So is a hoped-for political settlement with the…

How to avoid another shutdown

It is difficult to explain the recent government shutdown to citizens of other nations. In most of the world’s democracies, this kind of disruption can’t happen. Rules are in place to keep the government running even if a new budget isn’t passed on time. The U.S. needs to reform its budgetary processes to prevent the…

Pope Trumps President

WASHINGTON — I’d heard about a medical malady you can get from watching too much cable news. You start feeling jittery and apprehensive about the future. But I’d never experienced it until a recent night, when I had to turn off the rant-around-the-clock shows reporting on political vandals vitiating the good name of a country…

Obama’s Uncivil America

The “new era of civility in politics” called for by President Obama after former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) was shot, lasted about five Washington minutes. Since then Obama has adopted a scorched earth public policy in an attempt to destroy his political enemies, but sacrificing the Constitution as collateral damage. Fast forward to the October…

The Real Deficit’s in Leadership

“Man, this government shutdown is making America look foolish.” “I agree with you. I am certainly no fan of the shutdown. But the division in Washington is a reflection of the division in our representative republic.” “I think it’s a reflection of a total lack of leadership among our politicians in Washington.” Luojie / China…
