The official response of the Obama administration to the recent beheading of two Americans in Syria by ISIS has been muddled at best. The often timid and tepid statements by various White House spokesmen, the State Department, and even the President himself in response to these specific tragedies and the general threats poised by ISIS have been vague, confusing, contradictory, and sometimes downright silly. (You do know that the members of ISIS are Muslims right? The White House apparently isn’t even sure on that one.) Continue reading
Obamacare appears to be headed for still another Supreme Court visit, and one reason is clear. It suffers from comprehensiveness, a legislative affliction viewed by many as remedy and fervently sought whether the subject is health care, financial institutions, immigration or you name it.

Impeachment is the process by which an official of the government is charged with criminal action. Over 10% of the world’s nation have impeachment provisions. The US Constitution established the process by which impeachment is conducted in the United States.

It can be disheartening to witness the all-too-frequent over-extensions committed by President Barack Obama and his hyperactive executive branch as he casually lopes around constitutional fences en route to his vision for the country. But it’s refreshing to watch the Supreme Court jerk the reins. Continue reading
President Barack Obama, whose power abuses have played a role in the imperilment of tens of thousands of children and earned him slaps by the U.S. Supreme Court and the threat of a lawsuit by House Republicans, has promised more of the same. Continue reading
Imagine a July 4th tradition like Hollywood’s where each year the Oscars pay homage to fallen stars. Liberty-loving Americans would fete public servants who’ve honored Thomas Jefferson’s rule to “leave no authority existing not responsible to the people.” Continue reading
Another fortnight, another foreign policy disaster for President Barack Obama. This week, Iraq is coming apart at the seams, the remnants of the Al Qaeda-backed groups the United States and Britain fought there having regrouped and coalesced in the void left by the accelerated withdrawal of virtually every last allied soldier.

If character is doing the right thing when nobody’s looking, World War II Gen. Dwight Eisenhower radiated it on D-Day’s eve, writing that “any blame … is mine alone” in never-delivered remarks known as “In Case of Failure.” Continue reading
