Just a few short years ago, then-Senator Obama spoke forcefully … More

    U.N. Disabilities Treaty Would Not Help Veterans; It Would Hurt What They Fought For

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is urging Congress to ratify the United Nations’ Disabilities Treaty, claiming it is needed for American servicemen and women. This is patently false.

    Every few months, it seems, Harry Reid (D-NV) threatens to upend the Senate so that he can push something through without following the rules. This time, it’s the President’s judicial nominees. President Obama is already well on his way to remaking federal courts in the liberal image, but Reid insists … More
