An all too familiar scene was enacted on the campus of Swarthmore College during a meeting on May 4th to discuss demands by student activists for the college to divest itself of its investments in companies that dealt in fossil fuels.
There will be an event on Capitol Hill this week that will tell us a lot about the future of comprehensive immigration reform.
America has the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and the UCP (ultimate clutch players). One is mixed martial artists, and the other is quarterbacks of the NFL. They all are athletic warriors who are extremely determined to win.
Here’s Klein’s argument boiled down to the bones: We didn’t intend to cheat; we’re just so stupid that it had the same effect as cheating.
One of the most disturbing things about the IRS targeting Obama's political enemies for persecution is that many liberals seem to be perfectly fine with illegitimately using the power of government to hurt their political enemies.
Count me as irritable on the subject, but President Obama's imperious habit of suggesting that American diplomats work for him is offensive to democratic sensibilities.
Given last week's revelation that the IRS targeted conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, it's worth recalling President Obama's Ohio State University commencement address. The president decried "voices" warning "that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner."
How would you react if a pro-death penalty president travelled across the country with parents of murdered children -- on behalf of capital punishment?
That the Tea Party has been under attack is not exactly news to Tea Partiers, though we are grateful that the rest of the country has finally taken notice.
No, this is not Watergate or Iran-Contra. Nor is it like the sex scandal that got Bill Clinton impeached.
With three full-blown scandals currently surrounding the Obama administration, there are too many “-gates” to name just one. There is the cover-up of the fatal Benghazi terrorist attack, the IRS targeting conservatives, and the Justice Department spying on members of the press.
Simply put, Obama lied when he said "you can keep your existing plan", knowing full well the law was purposely written to make sure that would not happen over time. Eventually you will be stuck with a new Obamacare plan and higher premiums whether you like your existing plan or not.
Believe it or not, there are some people in Congress that can’t even wrap their mind around the power of the IRS. (And we wonder why there might be some abuse of power?) John Ransom talked with Bill Tatro about the recent White House scandals, and the coercive power of tax policy.
But the regulatory burden goes way beyond some odd anecdotes. We’re talking about a huge cost to the economy, and it’s been getting worse for the past 12 years.
Last week, Attorney General Eric Holder gave Washington a preview of how the last few months of the Obama administration are going to look, and they're going to be ugly.
Protecting U.S. diplomats from terrorists on foreign soil is one thing. Protecting terror-sponsoring diplomats on U.S. soil quite another. Our State Department is currently under heavy fire for failing at the former.
The health of not just our citizens but our national soul demands that we do a better job, that we work hard to foster and nourish life, both in the womb and outside of it.
Why do Conservatives insist on getting in their own way? They couldn’t have asked for a better week, one White House scandal following another like so many tumbling dominos.
The Gang of Eight immigration bill can be summed up as amnesty now, border closing never.
So sad, so affecting -- the cases of various newborns whose lives a Philadelphia jury found Dr. Kermit Gosnell to have taken through quick, deft application of scissors. The district attorney called Gosnell "a monster."
Doubling wages means fewer workers, higher prices for customers, and less profit for shareholders. Essentially those are the goals of the puppet master behind the McDonald's worker walkout.
Scandals are nothing new in Washington. Just about every president has faced an accusation of misconduct, whether moral or criminal. It should be no surprise that the Obama Administration would find itself in the midst of one, well actually 3 at present.
As tax collector for the nation’s second-largest state, I know it’s a necessary function — from the fire station to the space station, nothing government does is possible without taxes.
The acquisition leaves Yahoo! with another $4 billion cash-on-hand. Yahoo’s earnings were previously expected to grow 20% this year. Expect upward revisions to future earnings estimates.
During the Obama years, talk radio played a vital role in the formation of the Tea Party movement. They railed against a Democratic health care bill that eventually passed.
The familiar saying used to be, “I can afford it, but I don’t want it.” Conversely, now it’s “I want it, but I can’t afford it.”
Last week, the Obama White House finally was exposed to Americans on both the left and right as the abusive and arrogant administration that it is. Throughout this presidency, we've seen examples of the constant abuse of power and living above the law. The executive orders on gun control, the assault on religious liberty through Obamacare and the refusal to enforce immigration laws to gain political favor are just a few among many. And last week, three more egregious offenses came to light that concern all freedom-loving Americans.
The quantitative easing that has been going on under the direction of Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve seems to have been with us almost half a life time, but it hasn't. It arrived after the beginning of the financial crisis, and was supposed to be a panacea, but it hasn't demonstrated to be the “do-all” solution to our financial problems.
My University, UNC-Wilmington, needs to change its name to The University of No Competition Whatsoever. We could still use the UNCW logo but our full name would more accurately reflect our educational priorities.
