While the national spotlight is on the looming Fiscal Cliff and whether the country will go over it, plunging into the roaring waters below -- cue scary music -- the usual high-rollers (with your money, Dear Taxpayer) have seen their chance.

On Sept. 10, 2001, I flew back to Washington from Frankfurt, Germany, with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. We discussed a host of domestic and foreign policy issues before landing at Dulles International Airport that bright, crisp fall day.

The phrase “jobs Americans won’t do” all too often serves as a rationale for maintaining high levels of immigration.

And they’re offering a sweet deal.
What would have happened if, during the Cold War, Soviet intelligence had been responsible for training Americans charged with countering communist aggression? Surely, we would not have defeated the USSR.
This morning, I double-checked to be sure the word “illegal” was still a word in the dictionary.

What is the best way to secure funding for anti-terror training exercises from President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security? First, you have to create a fictitious scenario where hundreds of lives are threatened by a terrorist organization.
