World War II Vets Kick "O's" Butt Again

As I reported yesterday, the Obama Administration, citing the government shutdown, has "closed" the World War II Memorial. The Park Police were ordered to shut it down. This was a vicious, mean-spirited act by the Obama White House.

The memorial is a circular plaza where visitors simply walk around to read the tributes to the men who defeated Hitler and Hirohito. No federal employees are needed to access the...

Senate Stalls As Shutdown Looms

As expected, Friday afternoon the Senate rejected the House's resolution to keep the government open while defunding Obamacare. But House conservatives stuck to their guns. They worked through the weekend, doing their part to avoid a partial government shutdown at midnight tonight, while taking a second shot at Obamacare.

The House passed another funding bill to keep the government open, and it attached two amendments to the resolution:...

Congress Plays Ping Pong

Just before 1:00 p.m., the Senate voted 79-to-19 to end the Cruz/Lee filibuster of the GOP House resolution that provides short-term funding for the government while defunding Obamacare. Minutes later the Democrat Senate voted 54-to-44 to restore full funding for Obamacare. Now Congress gets to play ping pong, with the Senate sending the resolution back to the House of Representatives.

What happens next is anyone's guess. Yesterday Speaker...

Kudos To Cruz

Yesterday afternoon Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) took to the Senate floor vowing to "speak in opposition to Obamacare … until I am no longer able to stand." Still able to stand, his time ran out at noon today. Cruz waged the fourth-longest filibuster in Senate history, calling attention to the failures of Obamacare for more than 21 hours.

I applaud Senator Cruz and those who stood with him in this fight. As Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) said this...

Obama Reaches Out To Iran, Again

During his address to the U.N. General Assembly today, Barack Obama reached out yet again to Iran. Obama used his U.N. speech to announce that he is directing Secretary of State John Kerry to pursue the diplomatic overtures that have been coming from Iran's new president, Hassan Rouhani.

But despite those overtures and nice words, Iran has done nothing of substance to suspend its nuclear weapons program. Obama is being played. And...
