President Barack Obama stands with people who support the Affordable Care Act, his signature health care law, as he speaks in the Rose Garden at the White House in Washington, Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013. Congress plunged the nation into a partial government shutdown Tuesday as a long-running dispute over President Barack Obama's health care law forced about 800,000 federal workers off the job, suspending all but essential services.

MILLER: Obama opts to shut down for Obamacare

Conventional wisdom in Washington is that the first government shutdown in 17 years will only hurt Republicans. That might be true in the short term, but it will help GOP members in 2014, because they followed the will of their constituents instead of cowing to political pressure. Published October 2, 2013

MILLER: Democrats peddle delusions to raise money off the shutdown

President Obama refuses to negotiate over the government shutdown. Perhaps his reluctance stems from the enormous amount of campaign cash his party is raising off utterly confusing and scaring the public with this political issue. Published October 2, 2013

MILLER: Liberal logic - Drag queens are good role models

In a column in the widely-read Huffington Post, Joy Martin-Malone, argues that men dressed in women's clothes are better role models for young girls than Disney princess dolls. The mother of twin daughters writes that she pushes her children to model themselves after drag queens because "they are artists. They are able to conceptualize an idea and transform themselves — without the help of magic." Published October 1, 2013

MILLER: Senate Shame - Second Amendment is not up for ‘debate’

As President Obama authorized the U.S. to sign onto a United Nations arms treaty that does not recognize an individual’s right to keep and bear arms, it was revealed the U.S. Senate also does not view the Second Amendment as law of the land. Published September 26, 2013

MILLER: Obama tells Americans to 'obsess' over rare mass shootings

MILLER: Obama blames NRA for gun violence

Once again, President Obama is exploiting the tragic deaths from a mass shooting to push for his political agenda to control guns. This time, he escalates the rhetoric by blaming Second Amendment advocates for criminals’ acts. Published September 22, 2013

MILLER: Obama uses Naval Yard shooting to stoke fear, push anti-gun agenda

Scaring the American public is one of President Obama’s favorite political tactics to get gun control. Just hours after the terrible shooting at the Naval Yard on Monday, Mr. Obama said that even though he didn’t have the facts, “We’re confronting -- yet another -- mass shooting. ” Published September 16, 2013

MILLER: Colorado recall election a call to arms against Obama's second-term gun grab

Just nine months after President Obama launched his second-term gun grab, citizens have answered a call to arms. The historic recall elections in Colorado on Tuesday mark a turning point in a string of successes in the states by gun-control advocates in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., tragedy. The outcome of the races could determine how much further Second Amendment rights are abridged across the nation. Published September 9, 2013

Obama enraged gun control couldn't pass Democrat-led Senate

The kind of gun control laws that were making it so ridiculously difficult for me to get a gun for self-defense in D.C. have been out of reach for the anti-gun politicians on the national level since 1994. Published September 2, 2013

MILLER: AP calls Bradley Manning a ‘she’ and liberal media fall in line with PC agenda

After being sentenced to 35 years at Leavenworth for betraying his country, Pfc. Bradley Manning said he wants to live as a woman. This reality show drama would normally be an asterisk in an embarrassing case for the American military. The absurd request, however, will get mainstream recognition now that The Associated Press announced that all media who follow its vaulted guide should refer to him as “her” and Bradley as “Chelsea.” The political correctness in journalism has hit an all-time low.

Inside Obama's war on guns: Rick Perry decries effort to disarm Americans

The biggest fight in history over Americans' right to keep and bear arms is being waged today. There were attacks on the Second Amendment in the early 1990s with the passage of the Brady bill and the "assault weapons" ban. The gun-control battle of 2013, however, could easily see the greatest losses of Second Amendment rights ever. Published August 29, 2013

MILLER: Bloomberg loses stop and frisk, and NRA gets blamed

New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg has spent tens of millions of his billions trying to get his gun bans instituted in the rest of America, even though these laws have never stopped criminals from getting guns. Published August 26, 2013
