Obamacare Must Go Regardless of Who is Obama’s Next HHS Nominee!
At the end of the day, we all want Americans to have access to affordable, quality healthcare, but Obamacare is the wrong path to get to that goal.
"HRC": A Study Guide To 2016 for the GOP
"HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton"by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes is a riveting, almost-impossible-to-put-down chronicle of the five years in the life of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton that begins with her loss to Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential primaries and ends with her departure from the Department of State in early 2013 with the ashes of Benghazi just beginning to be sifted and her campaign for the presidency just beginning to take shape.
Jackie Gingrich Cushman:
Growing up in rural Georgia, Easter meant not only the resurrection of Jesus, but also a new Sunday dress, a hat, gloves and more chocolate than I could eat, at least at one time.
Victor Davis Hanson:
Who Are the Real Saboteurs of Immigration Reform?
Solving the illegal immigration problem should not be hard. No one knows how many foreign nationals are residing illegally in the United States -- estimates range from 11 million to 20 million. But everyone understands
that it is an untenable situation that must be addressed.
We Are A Nation Of Narcissists
People have been saying the country is “going to hell in a handbasket” for decades. It’s sort of a rite of passage for every current generation to look at the next one and think it will screw up things so badly everything will be ruined. But the handbasket this current generation is creating may well be the one that sinks us.
Snitchgate -- Sharpton Is Still Lying
If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished.
The Recovery is Dead
There’s a damning number regarding our economy that Obama doesn’t want to talk about. It’s a number, but for him, would be lower. And, lower, in this case would be a good thing for the economy.
Chicken Little 'Science'
The cult centered on "global warming" alarmism is getting hot under the collar. People seem to have stopped paying attention and polls show "climate change" barely registers on a list of voters' concerns.
Debra J. Saunders:
District of Compensation, Just and Otherwise
Pete Stark's name didn't come up Tuesday night at the Castro Valley Library candidates forum for the congressional district Stark represented from 1972 to 2012. The fact that nobody seemed to miss the California Democrat should serve as a warning to politicians who think they own their seats.
More "Ammunition" for Obama Administration
Increasingly, Americans fear their government. They fear its power, its might and its ability to ruin their lives.
And They Call It ... Success!
It only seems like an eternity that the country has been waiting for this not so Affordable Care Act to click in and work. But remember this: The system never crashed. It couldn't be allowed to, not in the merry, merry land of Obamacare, aka Denial.
Three or four short items on my mind today.
Why This Cold War Reboot is Different
Russia and the West are both warning of the risk of escalation to a civil war in Ukraine between pro-Russian and pro-Western factions. Rhetoric is heating up, with each side referring to members of the other's ground team as "terrorists," setting the stage to justify any potential opposition force.
In Playing the Race Card, Obama Pulls a Joker
But there was nothing particularly remarkable about Obama standing next to the preening Sharpton, speaking in New York to his National Action Network. Except that Obama expertly used a message of victimization to begin energizing black voters, who provide the electoral foundation for the Democratic Party.
Remember when colleges prided themselves on the diligence and depth of their research? Frederick Lawrence, president of Brandeis University, apparently does not. He offered an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Then, at the last minute, he rescinded the offer because, he claims, he became aware of “past statements” by her “inconsistent with Brandeis University’s core values.” Hey Scholar-in-Chief, ever hear of Google?
Culture Challenge of the Week: The Good in “Good Friday"
Darkness fell across the land and the man they thought would be their savior cried out in a loud voice, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Soon after, he breathed his last.
Deception: Christian Publisher Sells Soul for Mammon
WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group is planning to release, through its liberal sister imprint Convergent Books, a manuscript paradoxically titled God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships.
Krauthammer Against The Tyrants
Last week a national treasure spoke. That would be Charles Krauthammer, syndicated columnist, television commentator and all around public sage. He also is a chess player.
Obama and the Appeasement Myth
Hawks in the wild tend to be solitary creatures. But those in Washington, D.C., often appear in noisy flocks. As Russian President Vladimir Putin continues his predatory activities in Ukraine, conservatives here are unanimous on how the Obama administration should respond: by emulating the Bush administration.
The Air is Full of Sound
The year 1985 saw the beginning of a new dawn in technology, which would see the exploitation and evolution of a defense department project, develop into the worldwide web - the Internet.
Daniel J. Mitchell:
Will Taxpayers Be Forced to Bail Out Union Pensions?
As a supporter of genuine capitalism, which means the right of contract and the absence of coercion, I don’t think there should be any policies that help or hinder unions. The government should simply be a neutral referee that enforces contracts and upholds the rule of law.
Socialist NYC Mayor is Really Good at Tax Avoidance
Bill “punish the rich” de Blasio paid a mere 8 percent of his income in federal taxes. Just to put that in context for any liberal that has accidently stumbled across this paragraph: That’s less than that capitalist pig, Mitt Romney.
Repeal of Obamacare Would Increase the Deficit—Seriously?
According to Obama, repealing Obamacare would increase the deficit. You’re probably just as shocked as I am to hear this bold statement seeing as the public relations for Obamacare alone cost taxpayers millions of dollars more than anticipated and states such as Maryland are completely overhauling their websites—a huge waste of taxpayer dollars.
The Only Way to Make Money is to Take a Stand
Disregarding dividends and certain hedge strategies, like call writing, money can be made or lost when a stock goes up and down. Going long or going short gives you the best opportunity of maximizing profit potential regardless of market or stock direction.
The World According to Obama and Holder Boils Down to Race
Listening to Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama address Al Sharpton’s National Action Network 16th annual convention last week, one would think Americans were living in the year 1964 not 2014.
Ransom Notes Radio:
The Obama Recovery Continues to Embarrass
Can you believe anything that comes out of this administration? Peter Morici joined the program to talk about the Obama Administration’s habit of fudging numbers. (And He and John had a few words to share on recent GDP numbers.)
Yes, Its Safe for Conservative GOP Christians to Come to Vegas
I heard a rumor that some sensitive folks on the religious right are concerned about the possibility of the GOP 2016 convention being held in my beloved hometown, that den of iniquity known as Las Vegas. I have to admit, I’m puzzled...
There's Austerity in Spain? Where?
The biggest things Spain needs to do are cut public spending and public employment, and lower taxes. Instead, it is raising taxes on those with real jobs.
Easter Hope---Based on Facts of History
When Jesus walked out of the tomb, He changed history. This is 2014 because Jesus was born circa 2014 years ago. We wouldn’t be talking about Him if He had stayed dead.
What Last Week’s Big Sell-off Means for the Market
If you were looking for a reason to be cautious about the financial markets, then last week’s action in stocks offered you one giant yellow light. The selling in domestic stocks nearly across the board pushed the major U.S. averages below their 50-day moving averages last week.
Ukraine Declares War on Pro-Russian "Terrorists"
Ukraine's acting President Olexander Turchynov announced the start of an "anti-terrorist operation" against pro-Russian separatists. He told parliament it was being conducted "stage by stage, in a responsible... manner".
Why Emerging Markets are the Next Hot Pick
Just two months ago, investors were fleeing emerging markets amid fears about the “Fragile Five” — Turkey, Brazil, India, Indonesia and South Africa. Central banks scrambled to prop up shaky currencies after political and economic concerns led to investors abandoning these markets.
Back Any Candidate You Want as Long as It's One of These Three
As those of you who follow my hate mail know, I am opposed to running untested candidates against perfectly good incumbent Republican senators this election cycle. It will be a long time before Republicans have as good a year as this to win a Senate majority.
Walter E. Williams:
Equality in Discipline
If schools cannot justify differentials in rates of punishment by race or ethnic group, they will face the loss of federal funds and be forced to undertake costly diversity training. The nation's educators can avoid sanctions by adopting a racial quota system for student discipline. So as Roger Clegg, president and general counsel of the Center for Equal Opportunity, predicts, "school officials will either start disciplining students who shouldn't be, or, more likely, will not discipline some students who ought to be."
