Who Built the Brooklyn Bridge?
How many times have you heard President Obama and his minions pat themselves on the back for their noble "investments" in "roads and bridges"? Without government infrastructure spending, we're incessantly reminded, we wouldn't be able to conduct our daily business.
Analyzing Those Hot, Fresh GOP Poll Numbers

Absence of a Smoking Gun Doesn't Equate to Innocence
Let's say, just for kicks, you murdered your husband (or wife). Your neighbors have been suspicious ever since your nightly arguments suddenly stopped, right around the time you put something large in your trunk and drove off in the middle of the night.
Some Race Activists Are Harming Their Own Cause
There was a mostly minority-on-minority bloodbath in Baltimore over the Memorial Day weekend, with 26 people shot and nine dead, and the main reaction we hear from the left is "racism."
Obama Not Offended Enough by Anti-Semitism
What to make of President Obama's interpretation of the Iranian leadership? Challenged by The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg to account for the seeming inconsistency of relying on the rationality of a regime that holds a profoundly anti-Semitic worldview, the president denied that the "venomous anti-Semitism" (his words) of the mullahs is a barrier to rational decision making
Conservative Christians Miscount
I don't care how popular the Duggar family and their TLC reality show "19 Kids & Counting" is with Christian conservatives.
Secularists vs. Suicide Bombers
"What apparently happened was that the Iraqi forces just showed no will to fight. ... We can give them training, we can give them equipment; we obviously can't give them the will to fight."
When Will Climate Scientists Say They Were Wrong?
Day after day, year after year, the hole that climate scientists have buried themselves in gets deeper and deeper. The longer that they wait to admit their overheated forecasts were wrong, the more they are going to harm all of science.
Does a Young Rubio Frighten an Older Hillary?
The Grand Old Party suffers an embarrassment of riches, with a surplus of experienced candidates with formidable resumes. Hillary Clinton is an embarrassment with riches. She has lots of experiences, not all of them good.
Good News Is Bad for Motivating Voters
I know it will come as a shock to most conservatives, but far fewer people are sneaking into the country across our southern border than at any time in recent memory. At the height of the illegal immigration crisis in 2000, 1.6 million illegal immigrants entered the U.S. Since 2012, the numbers are down to about 400,000 -- and they've gone down so far this fiscal year by another 28 percent over last year.

Pro-Abortion NAACP Forgets Free Speech Is a Civil Right And Loses Lawsuit
There's nothing quite like learning about the fate of your hard-fought advocacy work through a tweet. I was spending time with my wife and children, doing our devotions, enjoying a nice big breakfast, and not worrying about the world around us for those precious morning hours last week.
The Bin Laden Papers Show Obama to be a Fool
Stephen Hayes and Tom Joscelyn recently reported that after four years of fierce internecine battles and inexplicable delays, the intelligence community released a few documents (roughly 100) obtained in the raid which killed bin Laden. This number of documents now becoming public is far overdue and paltry, given that Tom Donilon, Obamas then national security advisor, bragged days after the raid, that the collection was equivalent to a small college library. The extremely late and tiny release of what may be one million documents begs the questionwhat are they hiding?

Obamacare’s Muse: The UK’s NHS
Given the large and rising costs of healthcare in the US (eg 17.9% of GDP in 2014, up 5% from 1999), it is understandable that many Americans voted for reform. But Obamacare will only make the already government-centric American system even worse in terms of costs, prices, quality, innovation and care (including more bureaucratic rationing).
