A Tough Week for the White House

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
In addition to Vladimir Putin's strutting and fretting his hour upon the world stage, the big news out of the U.S. Senate yesterday was that seven Democrats voted with all 44 Republicans on a test vote on the confirmation of a guy named Debo Adegbile to be the head of the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice. 2014-03-06T09:40:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Rich Galen

Victory, Despite the Terror in War and in the Stock Market

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
President Obama bristled at the idea Putin was tough or won, and that his actions were not "a sign of Russian strength." But the fact of the matter is that Russian troops are in control of Crimea, and they didn't have to fire a shot. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Charles Payne

Our Irrelevance in Ukraine

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
The Russian invasion of Crimea occurred in a place little known to Americans, for reasons rooted in a tangled and bloody history. The showdown between President Vladimir Putin and the new Ukrainian government is a fight about tangible matters of intense mutual interest. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Steve Chapman

Baking America with Nutty Tolerance

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
With all the nutty tolerance liberals impose these days creating make-believe fairness, actual history now sounds more like a fairytale rather than reality. In fact, a bonafide intolerance for injustice and immorality once actually existed at the heart of America’s freedom. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Lee Culpepper

Obama in Denial on Russia

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
Two weeks ago, in response to tensions in Ukraine, the president explained that "our approach ... is not to see (events in Ukraine) as some Cold War chessboard in which we're in competition with Russia." This is a horrible way to talk about the Cold War because it starts from the premise that it was all just a game conducted between two morally equivalent competitors. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Jonah Goldberg

Currency Manipulation 101

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
Apparently, a grand total of sixty United States senators failed their economics and history courses in both high school and college. This would appear to be the truth since a letter signed last September by the said sixty senators clearly points to their complete lack of knowledge when it comes to these two areas of study. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Bill Tatro

Obama Budget Offers Little Relief from Jobs Drought

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
Friday, the Labor Department is expected to report the economy added 150,000 jobs in February. This is less than half the pace needed to lower unemployment to an acceptable level, and President Obama’s budget promises little relief. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Peter Morici

Funny Cartoon Video Mocks Obamacare

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
Obamacare may not be good news for taxpayers or consumers, but let’s look at the bright side. At least the law has generated some superb political humor, including funny videos. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Daniel J. Mitchell

Putin's Mind, Not his Shoes

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
As Americans, we have the unfortunate habit of thinking about others by seeing their actions and reactions from our point of view. We put ourselves in their figurative shoes, i.e., we know about their situation, constraints, advantages and options, but we don't know what is going on in their minds. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Jackie Gingrich Cushman

Monster Putin

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
What happens when the United States government participates meaningfully in toppling foreign governments in the name of spreading democracy? That behavior usually results in unintended consequences and often produces disasters. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Judge Andrew Napolitano

Hollywood Favors High Tax, 'Gender Pay Equity' -- Just Not in Hollywood

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
Sunday's Academy Awards event showcased Hollywood's finest. Beautiful people in beautiful clothes saying lovely things about their industry -- a politically "progressive" business that gives nearly all of its political contributions to Democrats. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Larry Elder

CBO Repeatedly Confounded Liberals, Vindicated Conservatives in February

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
February was not kind to supporters of the liberal agenda. In the span of four weeks, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released four separate reports, each concluding that misguided big government policies are hurting American businesses and families. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Akash Chougule

Progressive Mission Creep In Your Diet

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
Most people don’t care about dietary issues. What you eat is your business. If you want to live on nothing but Doritos and Twinkies until your body grows into your couch and a wall of your house needs to be removed so the forklift can load you into an ambulance, that’s your business. Obamacare has changed that. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Derek Hunter

It’s the President, Stupid

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
There’s an election year now, and politics will get more squalid, so I’d like to remind Obama’s enablers on both the right and the left: It’s the president, stupid. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z John Ransom

"I Told You So" is Good Politics

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
The explosive situation in Ukraine is causing a lot of people to point out that Mitt Romney was correct in his early warnings about Putin's Russia. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Ben Howe

The Cossacks are Back

Thu, 2014-03-06 22:00
From the glamour and glitter of Sochi, you could almost see Kiev burning as the Ukrainians tried to escape the suffocating embrace of Mother Russia. To make the point, Tsar Vladimir chose this moment to hold maneuvers just across the border. When the Russians mobilize, war tends sure to follow, as during the First World Catastrophe. Now this latest tsar has chosen to invade Crimea, occupying its airport and other key points as the usual irregulars take over its parliament buildings. And the Russian flag is raised. Why pretend? 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-07T05:00:07Z Paul Greenberg

New World Disorder

Thu, 2014-03-06 13:00
Count me among those — a dwindling minority, I’m afraid — who think that politics should end at the water’s edge. No one, Republican or Democrat, ought to take pleasure at the spectacle of America’s foreign policies failing and the perception of America as a hobbled giant. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-06T20:00:12Z Cliff May

Pressuring the Wrong Country

Thu, 2014-03-06 12:30
The Obama administration is showing it can be tough on foreign policy. Unfortunately, that toughness is not directed at Russia and its incursion into Crimea, but at Israel, America's ally. 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-06T19:30:11Z Cal Thomas

Ukraine and the Return of the KGB

Thu, 2014-03-06 09:00
Regarding our community activist's present imbroglio with President Vladimir Putin of Russia, I stand with Donald Trump who said recently: "The thing I have the most concern about is that he's being so lambasted for not being respected, and for being a joke, that he'll do something really stupid to show that he's a man." 2014-03-06T00:01:00-05:00 2014-03-06T16:00:08Z Emmett Tyrrell
