Sebelius Out

During a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said she would "absolutely" remain in her current position until November, adding, "This is the most satisfying work I've ever done."

Sebelius may have been lying to the Huffington Post, just as...

IRS Scandal Takes Stunning Turn

Late yesterday afternoon, just after one House committee voted to demand a criminal investigation of former IRS official Lois Lerner, another House committee dropped a bombshell.

Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, released a letter, signed by five subcommittee chairmen, to the committee's ranking Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD). Issa essentially accused Cummings of making false...

"Poof" Goes The Peace Process

Secretary of State John Kerry likes spending time on his yacht. For the sake of America's relationship with Israel, I hope Kerry strongly considers taking an extended vacation, perhaps a cruise to some remote Pacific island. The longer he stays on the job, the more damage he does.

While testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee yesterday, Kerry laid the blame for the breakdown of the so-called "peace process...

Obama's Hypocrisy

Democrats are kicking off their 2014 campaign today by trying to resurrect their "war on women" theme. Today President Obama will sign two executive orders intended to spotlight the pay gap between men and women. (Obama's orders will be limited in their effect and apply only to federal contractors.)

Meanwhile in the Senate, Democrats are expected to push for a vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act, which the New York Times reports "...

Pray For The Persecuted Church

Friday, my wife, Carol, asked readers of her Capital Prayer Alert to pray for Christians and Jews facing persecution overseas. Recent headlines only reinforce the urgency for men and women of faith to pray without ceasing.

There are reports from Syria that Father Frans van der Lugt, a 75 year-old Catholic priest, was assassinated today by militant Islamists in the city of Homs. Father van der Lugt lived in Syria for decades. He spoke fluent Arabic...

Rove Is Right -- And Wrong

In yesterday's Wall Street Journal, Karl Rove, the guru of GOP consulting, predicted that the 2014 Senate races would soon get ugly. He's right about that.

Why? Because Democrats are desperate to hold onto power, and right now there isn't much going for them. In fact, this week one leading liberal pollster said, "I'm worried this [election] could be a disaster."

But in his column Rove warned, "If GOP...

Tragedy At Fort Hood

Yesterday America witnessed another terrible tragedy at Fort Hood. Ivan Lopez killed three people and wounded 16 others before taking his own life. Base commander Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley says the investigation is ongoing and he isn't ruling anything out. But you wouldn't know that from our politically correct media, which rushed to judgment -- quickly announcing that there was no evidence of terrorism.

The desire to so quickly take terrorism off...

Obama's Victory Speech

Barack Obama never ceases to disappoint. Yesterday he strutted into the Rose Garden and gave a victory speech celebrating Obamacare. (By the way, I can think of no other president who has so regularly used the Rose Garden as an partisan prop.) His rhetoric was so over-the-top, for a moment I thought he might actually do a victory dance.

So, what did we learn from the president's remarks about Obamacare? Mostly that he's one angry man. Obama...

Jihad In America

FBI agents, military police and local authorities in the Kansas City, Missouri, area are desperately trying to prevent a mass murder. They are searching for Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, who signed up to join the Army in February. Hassan was kicked out last week when authorities discovered his plans to wage a "Fort Hood-inspired jihad" against U.S. soldiers.

You may recall that Major Nidal Hasan murdered 14 people and wounded more than 30 others during a...
