A week from now, the Federal Reserve System will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its founding. Resulting from secret negotiations between bankers and politicians at Jekyll Island, Ga., the Fed’s creation established a banking cartel and a board of government overseers that has grown ever stronger through the years. One would think this anniversary would […]
The Senate’s recent move to change filibuster rules gives President Barack Obama’s current batch of nominees a cakewalk through the Senate confirmation process. But there’s also another side effect of the rule change: It clears the way for easier implementation of the President’s broader second-term regulatory agenda.
In delaying portions of Obamacare, President Barack Obama — the undocumented usurper currently occupying the people’s house — has taken on powers not granted him under the Constitution. This is very simple to understand yet most seem to be turning a blind eye to the fact.
If you’re a poll watcher like I am, Christmas has come early. Have you seen the poll numbers? Barack Obama’s ratings are lower than a crackhead. Literally. Obama’s popularity has fallen below the crack-smoking Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford.
Some parents in Dupo, Ill., (surely a group of white suburban moms) are upset that their fourth-graders are being asked to read, for a grade, a book which recounts one mulatto teenager’s struggle to come to terms with his blackness in a white world: a struggle that leads him to drink, smoke, swear and use drugs.
The New York Times went there yesterday, drawing a facile comparison between President Barack Obama’s handling of the Obamacare rollout with the way his predecessor, George W.

President Barack Obama’s Thursday switcheroo announcement that he (not Congress, which makes laws, but he himself, alone) would unilaterally cut people a break under Obamacare into 2014 ought to vindicate Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), whom the mainstream media exiled to buffoon island after his stand against implementation of the Affordable Care Act last month. But […]
It is natural for a society to search for explanations and motivations in the wake of a man-made tragedy. It is also somewhat natural for people to be driven by their personal biases when looking for someone or something to blame. In recent years, however, our country has been carefully conditioned to view almost every criminal event from an ideological perspective.
A Pew survey released Friday shows Americans are increasingly frustrated not only by President Barack Obama’s overall performance, but by his handling of almost every matter of policy that has confronted his Administration throughout his ineffectual, scandal-plagued fifth year in office. Surprisingly, Obama’s approval on immigration reform has plummeted.
A new report from The Tax Foundation shows that the Federal government redistributed more than $2 trillion in income from the Nation’s highest earners in 2012 to the bottom 60 percent of income earners. The upshot? A more government-dependent middle class.
