The Year That Will Be

Late December is traditionally a time to recap the year’s news, but do we really have the stomach for it in 2013? Let’s look ahead, with a precap of news sure to happen in 2014. Jan. 1 A White House brunch ends abruptly as participants fail to agree on a New Year’s toast. Democrats reportedly…

Focus on Winning

  Will Republicans ever learn? Will they get their own house in order in time to take control of the Senate in 2014 and the White House in 2016? Steve Sack / Minneapolis Star-Tribune Will they stop fighting with one another in public over internal family matters and focus the GOP’s collective eye on those…

Bill Clinton, First Guy

  Last week, when Bill Clinton said President Obama should allow people to keep their health-insurance coverage — an early attempt to distance Hillary and himself from ObamaCare — I began to worry that the Clintons may be serious about another run at the White House. Taylor Jones / Cagle Cartoons I surely don’t want…

Obamacare’s Orthodoxy of Faith

Caller: “Republicans refuse to negotiate, all they want to do is ruin the economy and Republicans said it all when they said they just want to get Obama out of office.” Jensen: “The President and Harry Reid have both said they refuse to negotiate with the Republicans who have reached out to the Democrats.” Caller:…

The Charmingly Offensive Road Tour

Thankfully the current revival of President Obama’s Charm Offensive is not a theatrical production, because the reviews are decidedly mixed. Seeing him furiously pirouette around Washington for the last two weeks like a carnival contortionist makes you wonder if he might be secretly setting up a post-presidential career in a Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil…

Restoring Confidence

Help us, we’re falling and we can’t get up again. Once upon a time — in 1988 and 1998 to be exact — the United States was the best country for a baby to be born and raised in, at least according to The Economist magazine. But the 2013 edition of the magazine’s “where-to-be-born” index…

How I became George Obama’s ‘brother’

Published August 16, 2012 FoxNews.com – A few days ago I received a call from a man I recently met named George.   He was a bit flustered, and soon informed me that his young son was sick  with a chest condition.  He pleaded with me to send him $1,000 to cover the  medical bills.  Since…

It’s Nice to be Emperor

His latest edict came last week when he decided it would be nice to give about 1.4 million undocumented young immigrants temporary relief from deportation. It didn’t matter to Emperor Obama what the legislative branch thought about the “DREAM Act,” which would provide conditional permanent residency to the well-behaved children of parents who came to…

American Workers Displacement

The Bureau of Labor Statistics April jobs report is the latest evidence that, White House spin aside, the U.S. employment picture across all demographic spectrums is grim and getting grimmer. Last month, the economy produced a meager 115,000 jobs. And while some may believe the Obama administration’s fantasy that unemployment dropped from 8.2 to 8.1 percent,…

Some Inconvenient Facts

Mr. President: Do you really think you are riding high with the rate of unemployment standing at a whopping 8.5 percent? 8.5 percent! Wow!! Perhaps we should take a real good look at the real numbers. The rate of unemployment was 7.8 percent when you took office, and look how much money you have spent…

Why Import Engineers?

Earlier this week, a live online video chat featured President Obama and Jennifer Weddel, the wife of an unemployed engineer whose husband has been out of a job for three years. Weddel asked the president: “Why does the government continue to extend H-1B visas when there are tons of Americans just like my [engineer] husband…

Has the Right Gone Mad?

They say they are all Reaganites and that they want my father to return — my father, who lived by his so-called 11th Commandment that no Republican should speak ill of another Republican. What makes them think he would want to return to any party whose members use hatchets on their fellow Republicans? And do…

Suicide by Tea?

You’ve heard of “suicide by cop”? America is now seemingly witnessing political suicide by tea. Tea Party, that is. Only a few months ago Republicans seemed poised to fulfill a dream: if the economy continued to recover slowly or was barely on the mend, and if President Barack Obama continued to appear to be a…
