The U.S. Chamber of Commerce's new push to get involved in Republican primaries by defending incumbents against tea party challengers could actually make it easier to unseat them, according to the head of the influential Club for Growth.
Paul Driessen's recent commentary piece ("Exploding biofuels' myths," Nov. 25) demonstrates the lengths to which climate-change deniers are willing to stretch the truth to end America's renewable-fuels program.
Away from pomp and fanfare surrounding the multiparty talks in Geneva that resulted in this weekend's nuclear deal with Iran, senior Obama administration officials and other sources are now revealing that U.S. and Iran actually, and very secretly, have been engaged in high-level direct talks for more than a year.
As the United States returns to the negotiating table with Iran on Wednesday, there is only one deal that should be put on the table.
Left-leaning Politifact twisted itself in knots to declare Sen. Ted Cruz’s data on gun prosecutions declining under President Obama as “mostly false.” In fact, the Republican senator correctly stated on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Nov. 8 that “Under President Bush, prosecution of gun crimes was 30 percent higher than it is under President Obama.
President Obama's pick to head the sprawling, troubled Department of Homeland Security may face tough questioning when he appears for his confirmation hearing Wednesday. But if his nomination is derailed or delayed, it is almost certain to be by an unrelated dispute between a GOP senator and the administration.
White House press secretary Jay Carney recently blamed the GOP for the government shutdown saying, "What we see happening with this Republican strategy is a willingness to threaten the very foundation of the world's greatest economic power, the economy that basically stabilizes the entire world economic system, and that is a very risky proposition."
I smelled a rat from Day One of the liberals' "Bush lied" campaign about 10 years ago. Throughout the last five years of the Bush administration, as the political left continued to savage President Bush and say he "lied us into an unjust, unnecessary, illegal and immoral" war, I kept my eye on the one man who could easily have stood up and spoken the truth but refused: former President Bill Clinton.
When then-Secretary of State Colin L. Powell went to the United Nations to rally countries behind America's intent to invade Iraq, satellite photos were shown of trucks being loaded with deadly chemicals. Mr. Powell, Congress and President Bush believed that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. With that belief, along with the atrocities committed by Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein upon Iraqi citizens, America occupied Iraq, but could not find the weapons of mass destruction. As a result, all of the liberals called Mr. Bush a liar and condemned him ad nauseam for what they called an unnecessary war.
Former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson told Congress on Tuesday that she didn't abuse her official email accounts, nor did she use her own private account to try to circumvent open-records laws.
Facing overwhelming opposition from the public and fears in Congress that he lacks a sound military plan, President Obama backed away Monday night from his proposed missile strike against Syria and said he would pursue a Russian proposal to put Syria's chemical weapons under international control.
The debate over whether the U.S. should launch airstrikes against Syria is testing the willingness of rank-and-file Republicans to get involved in another military conflict and giving the party's libertarian wing a chance to push the party toward adopting a less interventionist approach to foreign policy.
The Obama national security team that wants to go to war with Syria and demonizes President Bashar Assad is the same group that, as senators, urged reaching out to the dictator.
Looking to assure the public that military action against Syria would be different from the nation's involvement in the Iraq war, British Prime Minister David Cameron told the House of Commons that it is clear the situations are different because President Obama supports military action against Syria.
I must be mistaken. I was told that al Qaeda was basically wiped out; for all intents and purposes it was dead. Nope, that was Detroit.
