Obama Shows His Cards, Turns His Back

Everybody knows that in poker, you don't reveal your hand. A good foreign policy utilizes the same strategy.

When confronting aggression by a hostile power, one of the first principles of foreign policy is never to take options off the table. We hear it all the time whenever Iran's nuclear program is in the news: "All options are on the table."

Evidently Barack Obama was too busy filling out his NCAA bracket to...

Good Morning, Liberals!

Just kidding, really. If you were a liberal getting up this morning, ready to fight the battle against mean, nasty conservatives, the latest Obamacare headlines would probably have you reaching for the Maalox. For example:

·  A new report finds that health insurance premiums in the individual market are up nearly 40% and...

Our "Prankster" President

As we noted yesterday, the Obama Administration responded to the Crimean secession vote by imposing sanctions, which the White House was spinning as the toughest sanctions against Russia since the Cold War. That's not exactly how the Russians see it.

The sanctions are virtually meaningless and have no economic impact whatsoever. In fact, Russia's stock market went up after they were announced. That's because they targeted only a...

Fighting For Our Values

My remarks at last week's Susan B. Anthony List gala are getting attention from the Washington Post and National Review. Here's the context of my remarks.

As I have frequently mentioned, I am tired of libertarians and some corporate elites who...

About That Global Warming… 

Earlier this week, Senate Democrats wasted a lot of hot air talking for hours and hours about global warming, just in time for much of the country, including Washington, D.C., to get hit with another winter blast. Snow showers are forecast for Monday.

But where does this issue, so important to Senate Democrats, rank with the American people? According to Gallup's latest ranking...

Fighting For Life

Last night I was honored to attend Susan B. Anthony List's annual gala. I had the privilege of delivering some brief remarks about the importance of the sanctity of life and introducing the evening's keynote speaker, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.

Governor Huckabee delivered an impassioned speech on the importance of restoring the right to life in America. There is a lot of buzz about his plans for 2016. If he decides to run for the White...

Bad Omen For Democrats

Democrats are down in the dumps today. Last night Republican David Jolly won an upset victory in a special election for Florida's 13th Congressional District.

The 13th District is a swing seat, and Democrats had several advantages in this race. Barack Obama carried the district twice. The Democrat nominee, Alex Sink, had 100% name identification. A former statewide officeholder, Sink was the Democrat nominee for governor in 2010. In that race, Sink...

Democrats Talk About The Weather

Last night Senate Democrats launched an unusual filibuster. It wasn't technically a filibuster because they were not trying to block a bill. They wanted to talk about the weather. They really wanted to talk about the weather. They talked all night long and well into the morning -- for 30 hours!

Democrats took this unusual action to highlight what they claim is the growing danger from climate change. But the move has left many in...

Unions vs. Obamacare

Conservatives have warned for years that Obamacare would be expensive, lead to lost hours and pay for workers and generally fail to live up to its promises. Such concerns were dismissed by liberals who glibly insisted that we had to pass the bill to find out what's in it.

Since 2010, the critics have largely been proven right. Now even some groups on the left are admitting it.

One such group is Unite Here, a labor union representing 300,000...

America Rejects Obama's Defense Cuts

As Obama looks for ways to pay for the massive spending in his latest $4 trillion budget, he is taking a meat cleaver to the Pentagon. Obama wants to slash the size of the Army to its lowest levels since before World War II.

Democrats hailed Obama's budget. But the American people aren't very keen on the idea of gutting our defenses. The latest Fox News poll finds that only 36% of voters support the troop cuts, while 59%...
