WOLF: Another look at Newt

America is a nation on the brink. The 2012 presidential election will not be between two candi- dates so much as between two ideas. Will Americans once again embrace the principles of limited government, individual liberty and free-market capitalism that made us great, or will we follow President Obama's path of growing statism that leads to European-style socialism?

WOLF: Liberal media cues up Cain and friends

Conservatives, brace yourselves. Steel your spines. The liberal media establishment has long since abandoned any pretense of objective reporting. They've declared an all-out war on conservative Republican candidates and it's going to get worse. They know that the unarguably failed presidency of Barack Obama leaves his re-election in serious jeopardy. His best hope is the scorched-Earth personal destruction of his opponents.

WOLF: Save America: Repeal Obamacare

Politicians are a curious breed. Their age-old solution to the problems created by their bad laws is always the same: more laws. Until we break this vicious cycle, we are destined to continue down our current downgraded-America path. The time to break that cycle is now, by keeping the focus on Obamacare until the 2012 election. Published November 3, 2011

WOLF: My challenge to Occupy Wall Street

Are you listening, Van Jones? Precious few moments in America's story have offered an opportunity like the one we have before us to realign politics and bend the long arc of history toward liberty. Occupy Wall Street activists decry the bank bailouts just as Tea Partyers have since 2009. Fine. If the occupiers really mean it, they should join the fight to finally end not just bailouts to banks, but all forms of corporate welfare. Published November 1, 2011

WOLF: CLASS-less Democrats

Class, for lack of a better comparison, is like bladder control: You either have it or you don't. When it comes to forcing Obamacare upon America with dishonest gimmicks, the Democrats have no class. A major portion of Obamacare just collapsed under its own weight, and Democrats are forced to admit that Republicans were right about it all along. Published October 26, 2011

Illustration: Cain 999 by Greg Groesch for The Washington Times

WOLF: 9-9-no way

I confess, I love Herman Cain. I love the Cain Train. I love his straight talk. I love his style. I love his humor. I even loved his Godfather's pizzas. And, I love the simplicity of his 9-9-9 tax plan. But there's one thing I love even more: the Constitution. Published October 24, 2011

WOLF: Liberalism's unwashed last stand

Liberalism is dying before our eyes, not with a whimper or a bang, but with a grand unbathed and so apropos whine-fest. The central tenets of statism are in free-fall, and its benefi- ciaries, namely those who live off the fruits of other people's labor, are in a panic for one last round of government handouts before they completely bankrupt the nation.

WOLF: Steve Jobs, billionaire capitalist

Capitalism is the most powerful engine for prosperity in the history of humankind. Though imperfect, as are all human constructs, the free market is still the most effective antidote to poverty and, what's more, it's the most moral method for allocating scarce resources. As we were reminded by the late Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, titan of industry and unapologetic capitalist, it's pretty darn cool, too. Published October 11, 2011

Illustration: Obama math by Linas Garsys for The Washington Times

WOLF: Barack Obama's remedial math lesson

Waving his finger at Americans, President Obama declared that income taxes must be increased, not on those who aren't even paying them, but rather on those who, despite already paying the whole of the bill, somehow still aren't paying their fair share. "This is not class warfare," defended the redistributor-in-chief, "this is math." Published October 10, 2011

"This is a really big deal," Mrs. Obama said. (Associated Press)

WOLF: Michelle Obama is right on Target

Finally, the "most transparent White House ever" is living up to its claim, and it's just plain embarrassing for us all. When Barack Obama promised transparency, most of America thought he meant disclosing donations, broadcasting meetings, limiting lobbyists and generally opening the government to Americans. But this? Sigh. Published October 3, 2011

WOLF: Bending Obamacare's honesty curve downward

The Obamacare house of cards is crumbling before our eyes. The Obama administration's signature piece of legislation brings a sixth of the U.S. economy under federal control, and the writing is on the wall: Obamacare will collapse under the weight of its own false promises. The only mystery left is whether we will allow America to go down with it. Published September 30, 2011

WOLF: Barack Obama's desperate Hail Mary

"We are witnessing the unmistakable collapse of an American presidency." I wrote those words in this space almost one year ago, and events continue to prove them true. It seems the president himself now recognizes this reality. Thus his desperate Hail Mary. Published September 21, 2011

WOLF: Hey loser, get a job or else

Liberals assure us that we need not fear the Obamacare individual mandate. It's simply a way to ensure that individuals behave responsibly, they say. Fine, if it's such a great idea, then let's mandate that every individual be responsible and get a job. Unemployment problem solved. Published September 13, 2011

Illustration: Obama's iPhone by Greg Groesch for The Washington Times

WOLF: Obama more telegraph than iPhone

Steve Jobs, chairman of Apple Inc., became a billionaire not by force or manipulation but instead by understanding the central tenet of free-market capitalism: He served other people. Millions the world over have voluntarily handed over their hard-earned money in return for his high-tech smartphone, which ushered in a new age in communication. In some ways, the iPhone is, in fact, emblematic of America itself. Published September 9, 2011

WOLF: Prosperity starts with Americans, not Uncle Sam

Never before in history has such overwhelming evidence failed to convince the smart-set governing class of the obvious: Government cannot create wealth. Instead, our rulers bitterly cling to the notion that the government can spend your money more wisely than you can. Published August 31, 2011

WOLF: Energy Obamanomics: No green jobs and plenty of red ink

It wasn't enough to preside over the first-ever downgrade of America's credit rating. Now the Obama administration is downgrading America's energy supply as well. "We'll invest $15 billion a year over the next decade in renewable energy, creating five million new green jobs that pay well, can't be outsourced and help end our dependence on foreign oil," candidate Barack Obama promised in the fall of 2008. But why stop there? Why not claim that you can heal the planet - whatever that means - and control the ocean levels too? Oh yeah, he did. Published August 23, 2011

Illustration: Bad luck by Alexander Hunter for The Washington Times

WOLF: The bad-luck president

"We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again," President Obama fantasized on the campaign stump in Iowa. "But over the last six months, we've had a run of bad luck." Published August 16, 2011

Illustration: Rugged Americans by Linas Garsys for The Washington Times

WOLF: Upgrading America

America has become a train with too many cabooses and not enough engines, and our government is riding the brakes with anti-competitive taxes and regulations. We cannot hope to re-establish our AAA credit rating until we once again start behaving like a AAA nation. Welcome to downgraded America. President Obama is "leading from behind" the seat where the buck once stopped. The White House seeks someone - anyone - to blame. The irony of choosing the Tea Party as its scapegoat is not just that its patriotic citizen-activists are on the sidelines, but that the president blocked the one debt-crisis plan that could have prevented the downgrade: the Tea Party-endorsed Cut, Cap and Balance Act.

WOLF: Obamacare or America?

The debt-ceiling debate has revealed that there are two types of politicians in America today: those who still claim we can afford Obamacare and those who will tell you the truth. Published August 8, 2011
