The bureaucrats' last stand

Why Is Obama making life easier for terrorists?

Imagine there's a horrible mass murder of 130 people and then another one a short time later in another town, with 14 people killed. This innocent collection of moms, dads, sons, daughters, husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, and best friends murdered as they were eating at a cafe, enjoying a concert with friends and loved-ones or celebrating the holiday season.

Fighting an army of the insane

With the legacy media's obsession with Donald Trump, you may have missed a stunning admission by the White House about their bizarre non-strategy to defeat ISIS: Their policy is being dictated by Koranic prophecy. Published December 14, 2015

How ISIS reached the homeland

ISIS-supporting terrorists launched an attack in San Bernardino, California, last week. While much of the coverage in the aftermath of an assault that murdered 14 people and injured 21 more indicated surprise and shock that Islamic State terror group is here, it shouldn't be a surprise at all. Published December 7, 2015

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. Published November 23, 2015

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." Published October 5, 2015

What liberal control of schools can foster

Last week the local news team at a Chicago television station shockingly used a Nazi symbol used to identify and isolate Jews as their graphic for their coverage of the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur. Published September 28, 2015

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? Published September 7, 2015

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. Published August 24, 2015

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. Published August 17, 2015

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. Published July 27, 2015

Illustration on questions to ask Obama by Alexander Hunter/The Washington Times

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. Published July 20, 2015
