Gumming up the works over Benghazi

- The Washington Times

Pity the American voter. Angry, frustrated and desperate, in successive elections he delivers more Republican soldiers to Congress, all in the spirit of Dr. Johnson’s famous description of a second marriage as “the triumph of hope over experience.” All that changes in Washington is the size of the nothingburgers.

Obama’s sop to Big Labor

President Obama is hosting Big Labor bosses at the White House on Wednesday for a “Summit on Worker Voice.” The event will “focus on how workers can make their voices heard in the workplace.” This alleged voice deficit is being identified as a cause for a weak job market and wage stagnation.

No moral outrage in the military

Recent articles highlighting horrifying child abuse atrocities inflicted on defenseless children by our Afghan military and police partners are but the latest examples of how President Obama is destroying U.S. military forces.

The Secret Service’s rotten culture

Nothing illustrates so well how rotten the Secret Service’s management culture is as an assistant director’s effort to retaliate against a member of Congress by advocating leaking embarrassing information about him.

Creating a buffet for Russian tyrants

Russia is sweeping into Syria with what one defense official described to Fox News as “the largest deployment of Russian forces outside the former Soviet Union since the collapse of the USSR.”

Score one for the Tea Party

Remember the much-maligned Tea Party movement? These were the patriotic Americans — millions of them — who took to the streets and the town halls across America and revolted against President Bush’s corporate bailouts, President Obama’s stimulus spending blowout and Obamacare, and the Federal Reserve’s policy of tossing trillions of dollars out of helicopter windows (figuratively).

A culture of death?

Regarding last week's mass murder in Oregon, what is there to say that is new? There was a day in America when such an atrocity was almost unheard of. There were family feuds, mafia murders and I guess what were called juvenile delinquents' murders, though they were comparatively rare and for the most part ignored.
