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.

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).

When world leaders got garbage for lunch

- The Washington Times

They gave the world leaders, in town for the opening session of the United Nations, lunch in New York the other day and all they got was swill. The leaders munching on the people’s dime said a good time was had by all, but that’s only if your taste runs to garbage. The chefs cheerfully conceded that that garbage was what it was.

How the election revolution has arrived

Apolitical revolution is taking place in America. The process of selecting party presidential candidates has been transformed in the last two or three election cycles. Now we have the early debates designed to drive poll numbers and tell us who’s “ahead” and who’s “behind,” who’s “gaining” and who’s “dropping.”

Proving their medicine is a good as their perks

The planned mergers of four of America’s largest health insurers — Anthem with Cigna, and Aetna with Humana — has triggered a vigorous debate in academic and policy circles.

Celebrating manufacturing

This morning when you looked at your calendar, you probably didn’t realize that today (Friday) is Manufacturing Day. Even though it’s not a national holiday (no, you don’t get to stay home from work), this day is still noteworthy.

Make U.S. mass transit a priority

This is how we get a president

- The Washington Times

The Republicans are still looking for the right someone to carry their banner into the election next November, and they're getting a pretty good idea now of who they don't want. That's the first step, after all, in making a choice, as any town belle could tell you.

Stop support for terrorists in Syria

Washington has a notoriously short attention span for foreign crises. Last year Syria was displaced in the headlines by fighting in Gaza. Gaza in turn was eclipsed by Ukraine. Then Ukraine became old news with the rise of ISIS. ISIS now takes a back seat to political drama over the Iran nuclear deal.

Russia no ally against Iran

In "The Devil We Know," author and ex-CIA operative Robert Baer tells us "The United States cannot stop Iran's rise short of an open-ended thirty-year policy of containment or a full-scale war. Alliances, unenforceable sanctions, threats — none have worked so far, nor will they."

Fun with the Green Climate Fund

The globalists have a problem: They want money, lots of it. And they want the prosperous nations to give it to them so they can redistribute it to poor nations. That would make the world "fair." But how can the prosperous be separated from their wealth?
