Obama's next push is amnesty

Amnesty is back, and with a vengeance. This was the dominant theme I heard at this week's annual talk-radio gabfest in Washington sponsored by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the country's leading anti-amnesty organization. Published September 20, 2009

Obama's phony pep talk

America suffers from an education crisis. Unless it is addressed honestly, forthrightly and courageously, we are doomed to permanent economic decline and the erosion of our civic democracy. A country is only as good as its people -- especially its young people, who form the backbone of the next generation. Published September 13, 2009

Obama's quagmire

America is losing the war in Afghanistan. Rather than change course, President Obama is sending 21,000 additional U.S. troops. This will bring the total to 68,000 American soldiers fighting in Afghanistan, bolstering coalition forces to 110,000. Published September 7, 2009

The war on capitalism

President Obama is the most radical leader in U.S. history. Much of the public is focused on his ambitious plan to nationalize health care. The more they hear about it, the less they like it. Hence, Mr. Obama's poll numbers are dropping like a stone. Published August 23, 2009

A failed, single term?

President Obama is on the way to joining an exclusive club. It is the club of failed one-term presidents. Published August 15, 2009

KUHNER: Dancing with dictators

President Obama has put democracy and human rights on the back burner at least in Latin America. Our celebrity in chief achieved his fundamental goal at the recent Summit of the Americas: He got the region's dictators to like him. Published May 2, 2009

KUHNER: Is America indivisible?

Last week's anti-tax "tea parties" marked a growing populist rebellion across the country - even to the point that some suggest the secession of disgruntled states from the union. Published April 25, 2009

KUHNER: Obama's grand illusions

President Obama is setting the stage for a possible war in the Middle East. During last week's press conference, he said his administration will be "persistent" in courting Iran's mullahs. Published March 30, 2009

KUHNER: Cult of the condom

Pope Benedict XVI is under fire for reiterating the Catholic Church's opposition to condom use while on his first pilgrimage to Africa. The pontiff told reporters that condoms are not the solution to the AIDS epidemic ravaging the continent; rather, they “aggravate” the problem. Published March 23, 2009

KUHNER: The conservative civil war

Beltway conservatives are turning against Rush Limbaugh. The most recent assassin is David Frum. The former Bush speechwriter and fellow at the American Enterprise Institute wrote an article, "Why Rush is wrong," in the March 16 edition of Newsweek, attacking the popular talk radio host. Published March 15, 2009

KUHNER: Terminate the Terminator

California is on the verge of economic collapse. The Golden State was once the envy of America. Its prosperity and coastline beauty was a magnet for millions. Now, its government is broken; its major cities are infested with drugs, crime and massive illegal immigration; its economy is sclerotic; and businesses and middle-class households flee in record numbers. Published March 8, 2009

KUHNER: Conservative disarray

Conservatism is in dire straits. Yet don't tell that to the foot soldiers, who just finished attending the Conservative Political Action Conference. They don't grasp the magnitude of their current political, economic, cultural and ideological defeat. Published March 1, 2009

KUHNER: Balkan basket case

F rom Iceland to Latvia, the growing financial crisis is triggering popular revolts. Several European governments are on the verge of being toppled. Yet, it is in the Balkans where the rising tide of discontent may have the most significant impact. Published February 8, 2009

KUHNER: Lethal olive branch

President Barack Obama has disgraced himself and the United States. His first formal television interview as commander in chief was not with CNN, MSNBC, ABC or Fox News - American media outlets. Instead, it was with Al Arabiya, a Saudi-funded Arabic-language news channel. Published February 1, 2009

KUHNER: Hillary's triumph

The Clintons have won. Secretary of State-designate Hillary Clinton sailed through her Senate confirmation hearing this week. Her critics did not even lay a glove on her - nor did they even try. Barring a miracle, she will be America's face to the world. Only President-elect Barack Obama will have more clout. Mrs. Clinton's appointment to head Foggy Bottom should concern everyone. Published January 18, 2009

KUHNER: Obama's culture war

Social conservatives are mobilizing to prevent President-elect Barack Obama's nominee, Thomas Perrelli, from becoming the next U.S. associate attorney general - the No. 3 post at the Justice Department. In a Jan. 6 story in The Washington Times, veteran reporters Stephen Dinan and Jerry Seper show that prominent special interest groups, such as the Traditional Values Coalition and the Family Research Council, are urging Republicans to oppose Mr. Perrelli's appointment.
