NUGENT: Obamacare is crony-care

The biggest problem President Obama has is a serious lack of trust among the American people. From energy mismanagement to refusal to be fiscally accountable to blatant job-destroying policies, the president has gone off in a gung-ho leftist direction that leaves many Americans shaking their heads in confusion.

NUGENT: Mideastern behind-the-scenes extremists

It's no secret how the KGB was actively involved in bankrolling and furthering the radical student and hippie movements of the 1960s in hopes that stinky, stoned hippies and violent America-hating radicals like Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn and dupes in the Weathermen, Students for a Democratic Society and others would topple America or cause it great harm. Why do you think they call it dope? Published March 23, 2011

NUGENT: No U.S. strategic interest in Libya

Africa isn't called the Dark Continent for no reason. Africa has forever been a political nightmare full of overt corruption, tribal warfare, genocide, murderous regimes and brutal dictators. Published March 21, 2011

NUGENT: Racism lives at Department of Injustice

Flunking is the new norm at racist Eric H. Holder Jr.'s Department of Injustice. In yet another ugly, blatant and defining racist move, Mr. Holder is forcing the city ofDayton, Ohio, to lower the passing threshhold on the test for those wanting to be police officers because not enough black recruits passed the exam.

NUGENT: Outgunned is a choice

Being a Border Patrol agent on our southern border has got to be a very difficult, harrowing job. It is surely an even tougher job when our agents are told to launch "nonlethal" beanbags at armed, illegal intruders. Published March 8, 2011

NUGENT: Multicultural rot in the melting pot

Europeans are finally awakening from their self-imposed Rumpelstiltskin deep slumber to discover that multiculturalism is actually cultural rot and is ripping their countries apart. Published March 4, 2011

NUGENT: Dr. Nuge to the rescue

As ugly and foolish as it is, obesity isn't the most deadly health issue in America. Neither is the insane choice to poison oneself with tobacco. Same goes for lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet. These prime symptoms of the brain-dead are all indications of just how berserk some people can be. We should all pray people will wake up and make responsible choices as soon as possible to make America stronger and healthier. Published March 1, 2011

NUGENT: Hell just froze over

It's amazing what getting "shellacked" in an election will do to a president. Instead of pandering to and embracing unions, condemning Wal-Mart and telling Joe the Plumber of the need to spread the wealth around, President Obama addressed the business community by speaking to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

NUGENT: Mourning in America

President Obama has been trying to saddle up next to former President Ronald Reagan to gain political points with the American people. That's going to put quite the strain on your mystical smoke-and-mirrors machine there, Barry. Published February 8, 2011

NUGENT: Obama slept through the election

I don't put much stock in presidential State of the Union speeches. Last night's speech by President Obama was no exception - flat and uninspiring, especially in comparison to his powerful Tucson speech. Published January 26, 2011

NUGENT: Passion essential to American politics

In the wake of violence perpetrated by a Tucson lunatic, liberals and others who should know better are calling for political rhetoric to be toned down. Published January 13, 2011

NUGENT: Be prepared for evil

There is evil among us. Always has been, always will be. As I write this, in the past four days, a high school assistant principal in Omaha was shot and killed and the principal wounded. Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona and 19 other Americans were gunned down at a constituent meeting being held at grocery store in Tucson. Published January 11, 2011

NUGENT: Sinister security

The heavy, disjointed and shaky hand of Fedzilla has fumbled squarely on a Sacramento area pilot for videotaping obvious airport security problems and then putting the videos on YouTube. It's almost as if this brazen upstart thinks there is a "we the people" component to this experiment in self-government. Tsk tsk. Published January 4, 2011
