Confused about the enemy

Since the horrific Paris terror attacks, President Obama and the Democrats want you to think that defending ourselves from Islamic terrorism will only make things worse. Bombing the Islamic State, you see, will make it easier for them to recruit.

The hypocrisy of smoking bans

When HUD Secretary Julian Castro announced a proposed rule to ban smoking in public housing nationwide, the absurdity was too much to bear. Here was another predictable liberal toady from President Obama's regime (and a man very often mentioned as a possible vice presidential running mate for Hillary Clinton) sanctimoniously issuing a supposedly grave concern about the health and safety of poor Americans.

Hillary Clinton, a case-study in narcissism

After the Benghazi hearing, Hillary's sycophantic mainstream media launched into mission mode declaring her the "winner" and the congressional hearing focusing on what happened the night four Americans were murdered in Benghazi a failed and the old, reliable right-wing conspiracy.

Misguided mammogram guidelines

There has been lots of discussion about the new American Cancer Society (ACS) guidelines regarding breast cancer screenings. With the advent of Obamacare, many of us warned that the federal government's involvement in healthcare would mean a reduction in services, lack of general access to doctors and a rationing of care.

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."

How Carly Fiorina dominated the debate

And the race is on. I've been generally open-minded about the Republican candidates this time around. We all know what it's like to have a favorite early on, only to have the chaos of campaigns spin everything around to the point where we're chanting "There's no place like home, there's no place like home" by the end of the night.

Deep-sixing America's veterans

Would you be outraged if I told you the federal government gathered 300,000 of our veterans, marched them onto 200 ocean liners the size of Titanic, dispatched them out into the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, then sank every ship and sent all those Americans to their deaths?

The real war on women

It must be admitted. There is a war on women. The Democrats have been screaming about this for years, and they should know. Because the war is their war on women all across the socioeconomic spectrum.

EPA's toxic adventure

Imagine an agency charged with protecting the environment, aptly named the Environmental Protection Agency. Because, you see, we need to protect the environment, and we need a government cudgel with which to do it.

When liberals fail to govern

Most of the talk after the Republican debates last week has been focusing on individual personalities, who seemed presidential (Fiorina), who was angriest (Paul), and funniest (Huckabee). While I still disagree with Chris Christie's policies and general attitude, he did rather well as a focused and steady bureaucratic manager, even when being confronted by the Angriest Candidate in the World, Rand Paul.

The moral terrorism of Planned Parenthood

Like many of you, when I first heard the undercover video of a Planned Parenthood official discussing in a detached and macabre manner the selling of aborted baby parts, I was physically sickened.

Serious questions for a coddled president

There's nothing quite like the look of a jerk whose smug omniscience gets shattered by a singular sound -- that of a reporter asking a serious question. Normally, the only sound President Obama experiences from journalists is the slurping one hears when boots are being licked.

Oregon as America's Greece

As most of the world points,laughs and gives the headshake to Greece over its socialist-driven economic meltdown, Americans don't need to look east to see the scourge of liberal policies. Look west to the state of Oregon, and you'll see our very own fascist chaos wrapped in concern-troll self-righteousness that would make every failed leftist politician blush.

Hillary Clinton spins her wheels

You don't need to be in New York City to notice the Hillary Clown Car is rolling along at full speed. It would, however, be dangerous to underestimate Hillary Clinton, the Democrats' likely nominee for the 2016 presidential contest, but as I've noted several times on Fox News, we are reminded time and again how this woman lost to an unknown, inexperienced lawyer from Chicago in 2008.
