  • Liberal Stealth Groups Paved Obama Win

    More than 4 million people who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 did not vote this year. But by applying new voter science, Obama nudged enough replacements in key states — many who were rare or first-time voters — to give him his margin of victory (leveraged even larger by … More

    Armed Services Chairman Denounces White House Benghazi Cover-Up and Muzzling of Military Leaders

    President Obama should come clean with the American people about what exactly happened in Benghazi, according to the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Representative Buck McKeon (R-CA). In fact, the President is the only one who has all those answers, McKeon says. “The whole thing smacks of a … More

    Our Dangerous Dependence on Foreign Chocolate

    America is addicted to chocolate.  Foreign chocolate. A majority of us consume chocolate each day.  Although the U.S. produces only 6% of the world’s cocoa, we consume more than 20%. The threat is obvious.  It’s time for government to step in and promote alternatives. Any day, President Obama will be … More

    Congress Needs to Fix Itself in 2012

    Congress owes America better start for 2012, and not to repeat the way it ended 2011. Even if the Senate is hopelessly dysfunctional, the House could do better.  The final House session of 2011 was a prime example of how to lose public confidence.  The body was gaveled into session … More

    Ghost Savings: Spectrum or Spectral?

    The federal government owns vast assets that would be better managed and more productive in the hands of the private sector.  Selling some of these makes sense to reduce debt, reduce the deficit, and help shrink our bloated government. However, selling assets is often abused as another Washington ploy that … More

    Where Can Congress Find Room to Cut? Look to Obamacare.

    Where can Congress’ “super committee” find its $1.2-trillion target in savings? The answer is hidden in plain sight.  The money could come from Obamacare, to avoid implementing its huge expenses.  Repealing the health care law would solve the super committee’s dilemma, yielding more than enough savings to fulfill their mission. … More

    Piecemeal 'Jobs Bill' Can Still Be Dangerous

    If something is too big to swallow, you cut it into bite-sized pieces.  But that won’t improve the taste—unless you jettison any stinky stuff. Likewise, the notion of splitting-up President Obama’s Senate-rejected 326-page “jobs bill” won’t improve any of the proposals. It’s good that the break-up would prevent the classic … More

    A Plan to Limit Dishonesty in Congress

    Give two U.S. Senators credit for trying to do something about the smoke-and-mirrors games in Washington. The “Honest Budget Act” by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME) goes to the heart of public distrust of Congress, namely the dishonest budget gimmicks and accounting tricks. The public is … More

    Obamacare: Forgotten But Not Gone?

    Has Congress forgotten Obamacare?  All the promises to repeal it mostly faded into the background months ago, even as the health law disrupts our economy. Fortunately, at least one lawmaker is still trying to undo that disruption.  Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL) is forcing the Senate to confront the issue.  He’s … More
