It’s spring, and the water must be fine, because everybody’s jumping in. Carly Fiorina leaped in Monday with Ben Carson, and Mike Huckabee will follow Tuesday. Republicans have never had such diversity.
When young men riot, as they did in Baltimore last week, it is the police on whom we depend to restore order. But how do we expect this to be done? What were these police actually to do?
Maybe we don’t need a return to the draft but we surely need to demand some form of national service.
The qualities Americans associate with effective political leadership in general and with female leaders in particular do not match up with the popular perception of Hillary Clinton.
All around us failed Democratic leadership is insisting on being recognized. As Baltimore, a great American city, teeters on a precipice, media and politicians still tiptoe around the truth, knowing if reality was actually acknowledged, the entire liberal narrative would collapse.
Probably no event in contemporary American history touched more of its citizens than “Vietnam.” I use the quotes to describe a concept that includes more than the country, the American war and 58,000 lost American lives, and convoluted arguments still haunting our political discourse.
The next election is 20 months away but Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is already sharpening her class-warfare guillotine in order to rev up her party’s far-left voting base.
Increasingly, U.S. presidents are watching from the outside as major world events are decided by unelected global bureaucrats.
Are the alarm bells finally clanging at the White House and in Congress? They should be. This week’s pitiful economic growth scorecard of 0.2 percent economic growth for the first quarter of this year means the Obama slow-growth machine grinds onward. It’s the slowest recovery in a half-century. The “Summer of Recovery” Joe Biden promised back in 2009 still hasn’t arrived — six years later.
American ingenuity is the envy of the world, and why not? The exceptional nation may no longer be the workshop of the world — Americans drive cars built in Japan, wear pants made in Malaysia, shirts sewn in Burma, shoes cobbled in Canada and drawers, from petite to queen size, manufactured in China — but nobody makes excuses, takes offense quicker and nurtures hurt feelings longer than the Americans. Taking offense is the great American growth industry.
Looking back on the 500-year history of the Roman Republic, it can be seen that one sign of its decline was when its great leaders no longer toiled for their country but rather for themselves.
This “free trade” legislation will allow companies to export jobs and import cheap goods at the expense of the American worker.
Will the next presidential election be won by a lie?
When the Supreme Court rules in the King v. Burwell case this summer, it will strike down Obamacare benefits in 36 states. That is because the Obama administration did not follow its own Obamacare law as passed by congressional Democrats and signed by President Obama.
Last week the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1195, a bill that would create a small business advisory board to oversee the actions of the Consumer Financial Protections Bureau. While the bill is a small step in the right direction, President Obama has announced he is warming up his veto pen should the legislation reach his desk.
