Throughout his first 100 days President Obama has amply demonstrated his fundamental belief that government knows best.
In a twist of irony, the historically conservative General Electric, the company that rebuilt the career of Ronald Reagan and sent him from city to city in the late '50s and early '60s, has become the corporate holding company of some of the most fringe left-wing politics on television.
I sincerely hope our justifiable anxiety over government spending and taxes will not obscure our vision in regard to other alarming threats to our liberties resulting from radical policy changes from the Obama administration, including those concerning our national security.
ppearing before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was confronted in a way she probably wasn't expecting.
Larry Summers, a prominent member of the Obama administration, recalled when he was briefly president of Harvard the burst of patriotism that followed 9-11, and hoped it would "reignite our respect for those who wear uniforms." Alas, we're still hoping.
The 648-page energy bill just penned by Democratic Reps. Henry Waxman and Edward Markey is ostensibly designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save money. But conservatives contend that the bill is nothing more than a tax.
It's a name to conjure with on Capitol Hill and throughout the country whenever the power of political lobbies is discussed: The National Rifle Association's support or opposition can determine elections in state after state, especially in the red ones, and may provide the decisive swing vote in bluer ones.
My columns and other writings have long chronicled the decline of moral values in America. However, I must admit to being absolutely shocked when I read recently that the Centers for Disease Control has estimated that nearly forty percent of U.S. births in 2007 occurred outside of wedlock.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was captured in an urban area of Pakistan by U.S. intelligence operatives who then interrogated him -- including through use of the technique known as waterboarding -- thereby leaving him alive and eliciting from him information about other terrorist plots.
The balance between the executive and legislative branches in writing laws has changed over the centuries. In the 19th century, Sen. Stephen Douglas wrote the Kansas-Nebraska Act, with President Franklin Pierce just an interested bystander.
Everybody knows that it is practically impossible to shield your children from pervasive cultural pollution, but Rebecca Hagelin's new book presents 30 practical, down-to-earth suggestions that parents can implement one day at a time to help protect their children from negative outside influences as they instill solid values and nurture their children toward the right pathways through life.
Last week, the Obama administration declined to cite China for currency manipulation despite the fact that most experts -- including Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner during his confirmation testimony -- do not deny the obvious currency-rate fixing by China.
According to the CIA, waterboarding produced cooperation in the mastermind of 9-11 and thus yielded information used to stop a 9-11 type attack on the West Coast.
Next week, the Obama Administration will mark its 100th day in power.
Last month, House Democrats rejected a measure introduced by Republicans to keep the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program (DCOSP) in the federal budget past its 2010 expiration date.
Thank God and the Navy SEALs that they all got out alive. But will Americans be as lucky next time?
First of all, I know this column isn't going to be popular with all the mouth breathing, troglodytic, primitive dittoheads out there.
Observing the Obama administration's approach so far to the war on terror is somewhat reminiscent, if you'll accept the crude analogy, of watching Panamanian boxing legend Roberto Duran's rematch against American boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard.
For two days I contemplated the phenomenon that is Susan Boyle. As nearly everyone must know by now, Boyle is the Scottish singer who blew away the judges, the audience -- and by the millions of YouTube hits -- much of the world with her performance on the "Britain's Got Talent" television program.
Sneer, sneer, boo, hiss -- and oh, boy! Did the "progressives" ever pour it on my governor, Rick Perry of Texas, for his playful reference at a Tea Party event to "secession" as an option possibly forming in the minds of sensible Texans. Why would we be thinking about such?
The Tax Day Tea Parties inspired and energized conservatives across the country last week, but the response to the events from the media and Democrat partisans was perhaps the most interesting thing to watch.
Credited with writing several feminist precepts into U.S. constitutional law based on the spurious notion that our Constitution is a "living" (i.e., re-interpretable) document, she now wants to expand that process to welcome foreign law.
The tea parties gave Americans an opportunity to voice those concerns. Signs were everywhere. Here are some of my favorite slogans and a quick comment I can’t resist adding.
America's "progressive" president has some peculiarly retro policies. Domestically, his reactionary liberalism is exemplified by his policy of No Auto Company Left Behind, with its intimated hope that depopulated Detroit, where cattle could graze, can somehow return to something like the 1950s.
The banking collapse and the economic meltdown have prompted many Americans to turn to the federal government as indispensable savior, telling Congress and the president: We hope you can fix it; we want you to do whatever is necessary to fix it; and we don't care what it costs.
