The State Of Obama's America

As Barack Obama prepares to deliver his sixth State of the Union address, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that the state of Obama's America is not well at all. Just consider these figures:

  • Only 28% of Americans believe the country is headed in the right direction.
  • 71% are dissatisfied with the state of the economy.
  • Just 31% of Americans think the country is better off than in 2009,...

No Confidence In Obama

Leading up to tomorrow night's State of the Union address, Barack Obama and his spokesmen are once again threatening to implement unilateral, constitutionally questionable executive actions if Congress will not bend to Obama's will.

On CNN yesterday, Dan Pfeiffer, a top Obama advisor, said, "He is going to look in every way he can with his pen and his phone to try to move the ball forward. We're putting an extra emphasis on it...

GOP Defends Marriage

The outrageous decision by Virginia's Democrat Attorney General, Mark Herring, to ignore the will of the people and the commonwealth's constitution by refusing to defend Virginia's marriage amendment has caused a firestorm. We called on Republicans in Richmond to respond boldly and they are.

William Howell (R), Speaker of the House of Delegates, blasted Herring's action for "the dangerous precedent it sets with regard to the rule of...

Virginia Is For Lawlessness?

Decades ago, Virginia tourism officials adopted the slogan, "Virginia is for lovers." With the election of Clinton hack Terry McAuliffe as governor and Mark Herring as attorney general, Democrats seem determined to change the slogan to "Virginia is for lawlessness."

Earlier this week we warned that Attorney General Herring had suggested that he might not defend the popularly enacted state marriage protection amendment. During...

Defending Life

Today marks the 41st annual March for Life, which coincides with the tragic anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. That ruling has resulted in, by one count, more than 56 million abortions in America. That's 56 million innocent babies destroyed in the womb; 56 million lives never lived, their contributions to society lost forever.

As they do every year, tens of thousands of Americans braved the brutal Washington winter...

Obama Plays Race Card Again

Barack Obama's approval ratings have been in the tank lately. Gallup's tracking poll has his rating at 40%. For most of the past week, he had been below that crucial threshold. And what does Obama blame for his falling numbers? Racism, of course.

During a recent interview with the New Yorker, Obama says, "There's no doubt that there's some folks who just really dislike me because they don't like the idea of a...

Obama's Harvest

Barack Obama took office promising to fundamentally transform America. While his domestic agenda has gotten most of the attention, Obama has done tremendous damage to America's foreign policy as well. For example:

  • During a speech at the Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C., yesterday, Canadian Foreign Minister Brian Baird said this regarding the Keystone pipeline: "If there's one message I'm going to be promoting on this trip,...

Governor Mike Pence Fights For Marriage

GOP elites and Beltway consultants who wring their hands over how to handle values issues should take their cues from leaders in the states. Indiana Governor Mike Pence delivered his State of the State address Tuesday and did not hesitate to stand up for normal marriage.

Indiana has been an unlikely battleground in the culture war. While more than 30 states across the country overwhelmingly approved constitutional amendments...

Obama's Three Branches Of Government

When most of us went to school, we were taught that there are three branches of the government -- the executive branch, that's the president; the legislative branch, that's Congress; and the judicial branch, the courts. Yesterday Obama made it clear that he sees things differently -- there's the president, the president's pen and the president's phone.

Speaking before reporters during his first cabinet meeting of...

Nuke Deal Is Obamacare Of Foreign Policy

Like Obamacare, President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran gets worse the more we find out what is in it. The goal was to put in place tough conditions to stop Iran from developing its nuclear weapons program. Is that what it does? Not according to the Iranians.

Abbas Araqchi, Iran's lead nuclear negotiator...
