The Left Deserts Obama On Bergdahl Deal

One of the striking aspects of the continuing controversy over the prisoner swap involving Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is that, unlike the Benghazi scandal, the IRS disgrace and a host of other controversies in which there has been almost no liberal dissent from the Obama Administration, the deal has produced a surprising range of opinion on the left. Indeed, many prominent liberals are criticizing President Obama’s unilateral move to...

Wednesday, June 4, 2014 -- A Good Night, Bergdahl Backlash, Knife In The Back

A Good Night

Yesterday was 2014's "Super Tuesday" with primaries in eight states from New Jersey to California. It was a good night for Reagan conservatives and all of you who support CWF!

·  In New Jersey, CWF stood with Jeff Bell, a long-time friend. Bell served in the Reagan Administration, worked for Jack Kemp and on my presidential campaign. While New Jersey is not considered a swing state,...

Tuesday, June 3, 2014 -- The Bergdahl Backlash

The Bergdahl Backlash

If Obama was hoping for a bounce from Saturday's surprise Rose Garden announcement about the release of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, he didn't get it. Instead, he is facing a growing backlash -- from the troops, from members of Congress and even from the media.

Once again, the...

Monday, June 2, 2014 -- What's The Deal?

What's The Deal?

Saturday evening Barack Obama announced that the United States had secured the release of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who had been held as a prisoner by the Taliban for five years. In exchange for Bergdahl's freedom, Obama agreed to release five "high-risk" Taliban detainees from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The release of an American POW is almost always cause for celebration. But Bergdahl's release set off waves of shock and...

Shinseki Resigns. Now What?

VA Secretary Eric Shinseki submitted his resignation this morning. After meeting with Shinseki at the White House, President Obama told reporters, "With considerable regret, I accepted. We don't have time for distractions. We need to fix the problem."

While I agree that Shinseki needed to go, the Obama White House is counting on Democrats and the media to fall in line now and go back to ignoring a problem it has known about for at least...

VA Scandal Explodes

There was an unusual late-night hearing on Capitol Hill last night as top officials from the Veterans Administration appeared before the House Veterans Affairs Committee. The hearing began at 7:30 p.m., just hours after the release of a damning inspector general's report, and concluded just before midnight.

In addition to its findings of lost patients and outrageously long wait times, the report stated that 42 VA medical facilities are under...

BREAKING NEWS: The VA Inspector General has released an interim report on the Phoenix VA health system. It found that more than 1,700 veterans were not included in the facilities records, and that patients were waiting at least 115 days for first appointments. Moreover, the report declared that "inappropriate scheduling practices are a systemic problem nationwide."

Obama's Energy Prevention Agency

For decades economists, politicians,...

What Happened To "Hope & Change"?

Liberals who love big government are losing their patience with the Obama Administration. (More on that below.) From the epic failure that was the launch of Obamacare to the VA scandal, there has been little change in the way government works (or doesn't) and "hope" is the last thing Americans see in Washington, D.C.

In what some are calling the "Bagram Blunder," the latest embarrassment involves this...

Patriot Graves

Monday marks Memorial Day, a national observance first known as Decoration Day. The first Memorial Day was observed on May 30, 1868, on the orders of General John Logan, commander of the Grand Army of the Republic. Flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery.

Initially meant as a time to remember those who fell during the bloody battles of our brutal Civil War, the holiday's significance has been extended...

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...
