Racism: Can we talk about it? Yes — finally

Shortly after the Jan. 20, 2009, inauguration of America's first black president — which I attended, receiving high-fives from strangers, many of whom were black, and even a free cup of hot coffee from a giddy black woman as I, a white man, strolled through Northeast Washington, D.C., without fear — a friend and I took our teenage daughters to a rock show in Baltimore.

Be afraid: This is the real Obama

In the weeks after voters cast a vote of no confidence on President Obama and his fellow Democrats, the president has gone on a scorched-earth campaign, unilaterally declaring amnesty for some 5 million illegal aliens, firing the only Republican in his Cabinet and rolling out a new federal rule dubbed "the most expensive regulation ever."

Hillary Clinton: This cycle's Mitt Romney

A fantastical remark by Hillary Clinton went virtually unnoticed last week, especially by the mainstream media. By Monday, when President Obama let Ferguson, Missouri, burn to the ground by failing to deploy national guard troops to the city ripped by racial strife, the remark had been long forgotten.

Obama sets off on scorched-earth rampage

President Obama, fresh off a shellacking in the 2014 midterm elections — in which he made himself a centerpiece, much to the chagrin of embattled Democrats — is about to embark on a scorched-earth rampage that will change the face of America forever.

MSM says GOP tsunami means voters are choosing 'none of the above'

To America's mainstream media, the midterm elections are a choice between bad and worse. Here's why, by their reasoning: No one — repeat no one — in their right mind could ever vote for Republicans, so clearly the country's voters are so disengaged and dissatisfied that they couldn't care less about who wins.

Two weeks before election day, the nation’s likely voters have started seeing eye-to-eye with the election prognosticators. Most now expect the Republican Party to take control of the U.S. Senate, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. And by a growing margin, more say that’s the outcome they’d like to see.

Mainstream media shocked latest polls show GOP pulling away

The mainstream media made a hearty go of it, attempting for the last few weeks to portray the Nov. 4 election as a toss-up. But poll after poll is now showing those reports to be nothing more than a barrel of red herrings: Republicans are solidly in the lead with just more than a week to go.

Trick or treat: Dems running scared from Obama

There's "keeping your distance," and then there's crossing to the other side of the street, pulling your hat down over your eyes and pretending you don't see that annoying neighbor you'd rather not chat with at the moment.

Obama's spectacular incompetence turns deadly

It was only a matter of time. President Obama, a short-term college professor and failed community organizer who became a mostly absentee state senator and then an all-but-invisible U.S. senator, has Petered out. Per the Peter Principle, he has risen to his level of incompetence — some would argue far beyond it.
