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.
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.
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.
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.
Only hours after appointing the head of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau while Congress was not in session, President Barack Obama bypassed opposition from the GOP to appoint three individuals to the National Labor Relations Board.
A few days ago, The Heritage Foundation published its “New Year’s Resolutions for Conservatives.” Near the top of the list: “Resist the Nullification Temptation.” I remain perplexed every time self-proclaimed conservatives come out against nullification, particularly when it comes to the Federal health care act.
In another installation of the dramatic series of exchanges between the U.S. and Iran, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Iran is making threats on the Strait of Hormuz because the country is in a position of weakness.
Many conservative bloggers believe a song that a Virginia school district alleges was written by third-graders is really an attempt by educators to indoctrinate the young students with the message of the 99 percent. The song’s title is “Part of the 99.”
Because conservatives are a variegated lot, the possibility looms that some of the candidates will extend their campaigns or even step out to third-party status. Such long-term division would create a split movement, hike expenses into the stratosphere and allow the Barack Obama machine to further coordinate the game plan.
For more than 60 years, government indoctrination centers conveniently misnamed “public schools,” mainstream “historians” and a compliant media have pushed the notion that Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal policies and his actions as a “wartime” President saw America through the Great Depression and won World War II.
But the stark truth is FDR prolonged the Depression, his policies left the United States woefully unprepared for a war he was itching to join and he centralized government and assumed unConstitutional — even dictatorial — executive powers more than any other previous President.
