Thursday, February 18, 2016 -- Poll Position, Neutral On Israel, Supreme Chaos, Media Notice

Poll Position: The Democrats

The 2016 presidential campaign diverges this weekend with Democrats holding caucuses in Nevada while Republicans have a primary in South Carolina. In both cases, the race is wide open. I'll start with the Democrats.

After an extremely close and highly questionable win in Iowa, Hillary Clinton got trounced in New Hampshire. Her campaign and its media allies dismissed the...

Crushing The American Dream

In all the huge headlines of recent days, an event took place in Indianapolis that went largely unnoticed here in Washington, D.C., and in many other places. But it was a big deal to the 2,100 men and women and their families who were directly affected.

Carrier, the air conditioning manufacturer and a division of United Technologies, called...

Tuesday, February 16, 2016 -- A Supreme Battle, The Left's Spin, Your Vote, An Early Gift

A Supreme Battle

Over the course of the past year, whenever people asked who would be the next president, I often said it was hard to answer that question because the election would be determined by headlines we haven't yet seen. We know, for example, that the headlines from the Paris and San Bernardino attacks significantly impacted Dr. Ben Carson's standing in the polls.

The shocking death of...

"Mornings With Maria"

I was a guest on Fox Business this morning discussing the 2016 campaign with anchor Maria Bartiromo. I had several minutes to attack the avowed socialist, Bernie Sanders, and the closeted socialist, Hillary Clinton, and explain how their policies would complete the job Obama started -- destroying our economy. You can...

Thursday, February 11, 2016 -- Christie & Fiorina Out, Reagan & Cruz, Your Vote, Officer Down, Supremes Stop Obama

Christie & Fiorina Out

The winnowing process continues. The GOP race that began with more than a dozen credible candidates is now down to just a handful of serious contenders.

Yesterday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie suspended his campaign. Christie's no nonsense style was an appealing quality, but the blunt spoken former prosecutor got trumped by Donald Trump....

Obama's Budget: Blueprint For Bankruptcy

President Obama submitted his final budget to Congress today. Speaking to reporters at the White House, Obama declared, "The budget that we are releasing today reflects my priorities." That's certainly a true statement.

It is a jaw-dropping $4.1 trillion manifesto of higher taxes, more spending and bigger government. It is...

Monday, February 8, 2016 -- GOP Fireworks, Left's Meltdown, Trump Stumped, NARAL vs. Doritos, Gaga's Greatest Hit

GOP Fireworks

There were a lot of fireworks at Saturday night's Republican debate in New Hampshire. Unfortunately, not enough of it was aimed at Hillary Clinton.

Much of the post-debate commentary focused on the intense exchange between New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Florida Senator Marco Rubio. It is too early to tell how damaging Christie's attacks were, and...

Friday, February 5, 2016 -- Border Security, Obama Wants To Raise Your Taxes, Dueling Democrats, Failing Our Children & America

Border Security Is National Security

It is a phrase I have repeated over and over again during recent national debates about immigration reform: "Border security is national security." There is nothing racist or bigoted about that statement. It is simply common sense. And it is a lesson Europe is learning the hard way.

According to the...

Obama's Muddled Message

I read the president's speech to the Islamic Society of Baltimore and found that it was a very muddled message. Below are a few quotes from the speech followed by my response.

BARACK OBAMA: But on top of that, as Muslim Americans, you also have another concern -- and that is your entire community so often is targeted or blamed...
