On Tuesday night the report of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration on the great Tea Party purge was released.
Set aside the disgraceful actions of the broadcast MSM today in not covering the riveting testimony of Greg Hicks Wednesday, and set aside even the shocking conduct of the Administration on the night of 9/11/12 and during the days, weeks and months following.
Wednesday's hearing before the House Committee on Oversight and Governmental Reform begins at 11:30 A.M. and before it is over the country will have decided whether it is interested in uncovering the truth about Benghazi --or not.
A border fence, "a fence from left to right, from east to west, except obviously the mountainous areas," as Charles Krauthammer put it, is essential to the effort to pass immigration reform.
Marco Rubio spent a half hour on the radio program with me yesterday, calling in to respond to the many criticisms (most bogus, some legit) launched at the first draft of immigration reform.
The effort to secure the borders and reform immigration law is about to enter a crucial month at the end of which the fate of the bill will almost certainly be known.
"Regular Order" ought to be the way in which the House and Senate conduct their business, but not when highly irregular national security disasters and/or scandals occur, and especially not after an ambassador is murdered by terrorists and a mass casualty terrorist attack occurs on Patriots Day in Boston.
If you have read Marco Rubio's An American Son, you will know that the Florida senator is nothing if not tenacious.
Political and policy fiasco alert: The GOP Chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee is gearing up to waste the House Republican Majority's energy, time and political goodwill on a doomed-to-failure scheme that conservative realists know cannot emerge from the Congress.
Carnage in Boston, ricin in Congress and devastation in West, Texas make this the worst week in years for the U.S. That the parents of some of the victims of Newtown were disappointed in the Senate yesterday adds to the gloom, and the president’s unbelievable timing for his fit of pique Wednesday added to the sense that the country is, genuinely, leaderless.
Because I cannot imagine the pain the parents of Sandy Hook are suffering, I hope every senator agrees to meet with them and hear them out.
Speeches to lawyers' groups are among the least fun to give. For one thing, if you get a detail wrong someone is sure to point it out. For another, most lawyers (and judges) have quasi-professional commitments to impassivity in their facial expressions.
Of all the many awful features of the Affordable Care Act --"Obamacare"-- the medical device tax ("MDT") is the most obviously ruinous of a particular sector of the economy.
Pope Francis, Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal, Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio walk into a bar...
“Anyone who tells you they aren’t surprised is lying.” That is what then Congressman Chris Cox told me on the KCET television set on election night 1994 when the GOP, led by Newt Gingrich, seized the House majority.
Here's what Rand Paul did with his LollaPaulooza yesterday: He engaged the country in a serious discussion of first principles. You may not agree with him, but he did it. The Constitution was actually discussed on the Senate floor for more than a dozen hours. Incredible.
How are American newspapers and networks covering the Conclave? Poorly, if at all.
President Obama's sequester -- he designed it, he demanded it, and it is about to kick in -- will have many consequences, some bad, some very helpful.
The New York Times called the SOTU “making the case for government,” but it was in fact the unveiling of gridlock, the opening of the era of Big Gridlock.
Because the Roman Catholic Church adamantly defends life in the womb, the oldest and most infirm and the institution of marriage, it has legions of foes spread throughout major media. Those critics will surface repeatedly between now and the selection of the new pope to use the occasion to sling their stones. It is a fun time, really, since they know almost nothing of which they speak, and their agenda journalism is of so little consequence unlike the MSM's recent interventions in the presidential election.
