Defense Department Unveils New, Leaner Military Plan

President Barack Obama, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, released the results of the Pentagon’s strategic review of U.S. roles and missions worldwide during a Thursday morning press conference.

The Faux Conservatism Of Rick Santorum

Fresh off his stunning (a possible ill-gotten) second-place finish in Iowa, former Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania is trying to claim the mantle of the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney. Such a claim would spark belly laughs and derisive hoots and catcalls in a sane world.

White House Jobs Adviser Heads Tanking Company

One member of President Barack Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness heads a company that will likely seek bankruptcy protection in coming weeks after 131 years in business and a once-prestigious place among corporate mammoths.

Conservative Group Takes Notes From Liberals

A conservative organization is launching an advocacy group that will function in much the same way the liberal group Center for American Progress (CAP) does, but for a different political purpose.

Obama Appoints Three To Labor Board, Bypasses Congress
