Obama Failed To Impress

Evidently I wasn't the only one unimpressed by Barack Obama's press conference yesterday. His remarks about the VA scandal left even many in the sympathetic pro-Obama media scratching their heads.

CNN's Drew Griffin, the reporter who broke the story about the Phoenix VA's secret wait lists, said:

"I was a little caught off-guard by what apparently is a disconnect between what is happening out...

Radical Islam's War On Christian Women

Meriam Yahya Ibrahim, a married 27 year-old woman, was recently sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery by a Sudanese court. How can a married woman be guilty of adultery? Sudan, which is governed by radical Islamic or Sharia law, refuses to recognize Meriam's marriage to her Christian husband, Daniel Wani, an American citizen. Under Sharia law, a Muslim woman cannot marry a Christian, and Meriam is considered to be a Muslim because her...

VA Scandal Grows

Congress may need yet another select committee -- one to investigate the scandal at the Veterans Administration. Almost every day it seems another whistleblower steps forward with allegations of abuse, mismanagement and neglect of our heroes. Here are the latest developments:

·  Add Albuquerque, New Mexico, to the growing list of VA medical centers across the country that are investigating the falsification of documents and wait times. An...

2014: Democrats In Danger

This morning Politico released the results of polling in the most competitive House and Senate races. Here are the key results:

·  Barack Obama's approval rating is a dismal 40%.

·  Only 16% of likely voters support Obamacare "as it is." When asked whether they thought the debate over Obamacare should be over, 60% of voters said no.

·  While most national polls show a close race for...

Fighting For Our Values

All day yesterday I attended a strategy meeting of leaders representing every segment of the conservative movement -- values issues, economic conservatives, libertarians, foreign policy conservatives and Tea Party leaders. These meetings are held several times a year, and the ground rules are that the deliberations, for obvious reasons, are off-the-record and not to be shared with the media.

Nevertheless, the Washington Post had a front page story...

Democrats Directed IRS Tea Party Targeting

Yesterday afternoon more emails related to the IRS scandal were released. They make two things perfectly clear: First, there was a coordinated, intentional effort to target Tea Party groups. Second, top congressional Democrats demanded it.

The first point is worth repeating because Democrats and their media allies insist there is no scandal. But the IRS was clearly targeting conservative and Tea Party groups. It developed a...

Conservative Victories

Two candidates that we supported with your generous help prevailed in yesterday's primaries.

In the Nebraska Senate race, which was widely viewed as an establishment vs. Tea Party contest, conservative Ben Sasse cruised to victory, receiving 49% of the vote in the five-way contest. In an overwhelmingly Republican state like Nebraska, why not nominate the most movement-oriented conservative possible? That candidate was Ben Sasse, and he is almost...

VA Scandal A Preview Of Obamacare's Future

Everyone should be paying attention to the VA scandal. Not only is the disgraceful treatment of our veterans a national outrage, but it offers us a potential glimpse into the future of Obamacare.

Dr. Richard Krugman, the former associate chief of staff at the Veterans Affairs health care system in Harlingen, Texas, is among the growing number of whistleblowers at VA facilities to allege that poor treatment led to unnecessary deaths...

Obama's Hashtag Foreign Policy

The tragedy of the kidnapped Nigerian girls continues. From the past acts of Boko Haram, we can assume that by now most of the girls have been sexually abused. Now their jihadist captors have forcibly converted them to Islam. A video has been released showing them reciting Koranic verses in Arabic. It's not clear whether that was before or after they were raped.

The video has renewed the world's outrage, but there should have been...

Solidarity & Action

On Capitol Hill this week leaders of various Christian denominations gathered to call attention to the growing danger of Christian persecution in the Middle East. The press conference was organized by Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) and Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA), co-chairs of the Religious Minorities in the Middle East Caucus.

Speakers at the press conference represented the Catholic Church, Greek Orthodox Church, Southern Baptists, evangelicals and others. There were...
