Unions: 'Will that Be Cash, Credit or Corruption?'
Taxpayers shouldn’t have to bailout union bad behavior again, just because they bought the Democrats with cash, credit and corruption
The Tea Party Isn't Dying – The GOP Establishment Is
If the conservative insurgency has been crushed, why was Mitch McConnell walking around onstage at CPAC with a musket? He couldn’t have sucked up to the right any harder if he wore a tri-corner hat and had the Gadsden flag tattooed on his rear. The death of the conservative revolution, the Tea Party, or whatever you call it, has not merely been greatly exaggerated. It’s been flat-out lied about.
Strengthen the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act
One year ago, on March 18, 2013, the trial of abortion monster Dr. Kermit Gosnell began in Philadelphia. Two months later Gosnell was convicted on three charges of murder, 21 felony counts of performing illegal late-term abortions, and 211 counts of violating the 24-hour informed consent laws.
Win Lose or Draw
Today, as most of you sit in your offices pretending to work while reading my column (thanks, by the way) I'll be taking the stand in federal court in a First Amendment lawsuit against my employer, UNC-Wilmington.
Yeah, I know I haven’t exactly been a prolific Internet contributor in recent months. I’m retired, you see, and there are places to go, people to see, and golf courses to conquer.
De Blasio Is Full Of Blarney
I wish my Irish eyes could be smilin’ on St. Patty’s Day. But New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has stoked my Irish temper. And that’s no blarney.
Governments Binge on Debt with Easy-Money Policies and Low Interest Rates
Confirmation that governments are squandering money on ill-advised programs fueled by the easy-money policies of central banks worldwide became all-too-evident earlier this week when a European business leader responded to a question I posed at a press briefing here in Washington, D.C.
Philly and 'Nooga Remind Dangers of Ambush Union Elections
Stacked with Obama-appointed bureaucrats back in December 2011, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) decided that it was in the best interests of labor bosses to severely diminish the window of time for workplace elections to just a few weeks. This, after it was well established that the vast majority of union elections in the private sector take place within 38 days with labor winning significantly more than half.
Daniel J. Mitchell:
Ukraine’s Biggest Problem Isn’t Putin, It’s Putinonomics
The real moral of the story is that Ukraine needs economic liberty. It doesn’t have that now, and it almost surely won’t have that if it falls more under Putin’s influence.
Obama is Poisonous
President Obama has used up his political capital. The cupboard is bare. His distain for the Article I branch is exceeded only by his dislike of the Article III branch. While people thought he was at least trying to do the right thing they gave him the benefit of the doubt.
High Times in Colorado and Washington: Dope, Dependency and the Future
Last week, in a wide ranging interview, California governor and reformed hippie Jerry Brown struck an admirably prudent, restrained, and even conservative note when he stated that he would not openly support marijuana legalization in California before seeing how such legislation worked out in the practical sense in Colorado and Washington.
Harry Reid: Little Bad Man of Nevada
This guttersnipe of a politician still leads the US Senate and still makes news. And the lapdogs lap up his bile.
Recession Ends for Grown-Ups?
So we don't think the Great Recession is over quite yet for America's Age 25 and older population.
A Pilot on Hijacking of MH370
The one flaw in the hijackers’ planning that likely foiled everything was an understanding of fuel consumption.
More High Stakes Appointments to the Federal Reserve
It will still be the Obama Fed long after this president has gone.
Three Hours of Waterboarding with Jon Stewart
I expected that they’d try to spring something on me and make me look foolish.

The Obama Legacy: Decreasing Freedom
By dint of legislative debacles at home and listless incoherence abroad, the Obama administration has decreased human freedom in every sphere it has entered. Five years into his presidency, Barack Obama presides over the most pronounced declination of individual freedom at home and abroad in the post-world war period.
Why Small Government Reduces Income Inequality
As President Obama struggles to rejuvenate his flagging second term, he’s returning to a theme that struck a chord in 2009: Income inequality. The top 1 percent of income-earners in the United States bring in 22.3 percent of all pre-tax income, which many feel is inherently unfair. But if Mr. Obama is serious about reining in income inequality, he should promote less government, not more.
Crimea Votes Overwhelmingly to Rejoin Russia; McCain Wants Military Aid for Ukraine
The US senate's head-warmonger, John McCain said Obama is giving “serious consideration” to sending military aid to Ukraine.
Government workers cost 45% more than private sector workers
It is probably safe to say that government workers are nowhere near as efficient as private sector workers.
