Tuesday, February 23, 2016 -- Obama's Radical Agenda, Biden's Rules, Trump To Prosecute Hillary

Obama Presses Radical Agenda

Oh, if only we had a president who cared as much about veterans as he does about the comfort of enemy combatants. Speaking at a White House press conference this morning, President Obama announced that the Pentagon was submitting a formal plan to Congress to...

Monday, February 22, 2016 -- Saturday's Results, Reflections On Money, Evangelicals & Trump, Scalia Laid To Rest

Results: Nevada

Hillary Clinton won the Nevada Democrat caucuses Saturday by a larger than expected margin of 53% to 47%. Two recent polls showed Clinton and Sanders were tied in Nevada, and the Sanders campaign desperately wanted to prove that New Hampshire wasn't an aberration. But it just wasn't in the cards.

Reports suggest Clinton got a big boost from behind-the-...

Friday, February 19, 2016 -- Francis & Trump, Cruz Closing In, Goodbye Nino

Pope Francis -- Please Call Your Office!

By now you have heard about the controversy between Pope Francis and Donald Trump. When a reporter aboard the papal airplane baited Pope Francis with a loaded question about Donald Trump's signature issue -- building a border wall -- the pope unfortunately swallowed the hook. He responded:

"And then a person who thinks only about building walls,...

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...

Wednesday, February 17, 2016 -- Crushing The American Dream, Cook's Contempt, Left-wing Hate Crime, Trump's Truther Moment

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.

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...
