  • 7 Times Obama Did 'Do Whatever I Want' During His Presidency

    It’s called a “Freudian slip,” and it’s one of the few pieces of Sigmund’s theory that has survived into the modern day. It happens when you “accidentally” say something that’s true, but that you didn’t mean to say. “I’m sure I’m not supposed to, but we’re breaking protocol here,” President … More

    Cronyism Corrupted Sochi Olympics

    The modern Olympiad is a made-for-TV spectacle. Nobody doubts that from the ice rink to the halfpipe to the ski jump, the Sochi Olympics will look great on the small screen over the next few weeks. But viewers aren’t seeing the big picture. The untold story of these Olympics is … More

    Obama's Rocky Second Term

    President Obama’s second term is off to a rocky start. The Congressional Budget Office says his signature Obamacare legislation will cost millions their employer-provided health insurance in the years ahead. A series of scandals involving the Internal Revenue Service, the National Security Agency and the Justice Department kept the administration … More

    Schumer Is Right: We Should Hold The Government Accountable

    Why doesn’t the Obama administration make government employees take responsibility for their mistakes? Consider Obamacare. You may recall its Web site provided inaccurate information, exposed personal information to others and simply didn’t work. Obama himself admitted in November that “I was not informed directly that the website would not be … More

    Why Does Pop Culture Pretend Dads Don’t Exist?

    Where are the dads? Take the January issue of Washington Family magazine, which features a photo of a mother and daughter getting ready to ski (down Capitol Hill, perhaps?), and highlights three stories, all aimed at mothers. What’s missing, from the cover and the magazine as a whole, is fathers. … More

    Virginia Attorney General Abuses His Power By Refusing to Defend Marriage Amendment

    “Here sir, the people govern,” Alexander Hamilton told the New York state ratifying convention in 1788. It’s a good thing he wasn’t talking about the commonwealth of Virginia, or the future state of California. On Thursday, Virginia’s Attorney General announced that, not only would he refuse to enforce a state … More

    Schools Need to Stop Teaching Kids to Be Afraid of the Snow

      All good things must come to an end, the saying goes. But it remains to be seen whether that applies to the Martin Luther King, Jr. long weekend, which is stretching on and on and on for students in at least two northern Virginia districts. They’ve been off since … More

    How MLK's Faith Influenced His Public Life

    Across the country today, speakers will honor the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. They will likely quote the resounding “I Have a Dream” speech and the stirring “Letter from Birmingham Jail.” But what made it possible for King to accomplish so much? Let’s go deeper into the origins of … More

    How the Founders Decided to Add the Bill of Rights

    Do we really need a list of the rights Americans enjoy? That was the question the Founders debated before the Bill of Rights was ratified 222 years ago this weekend. Many of those who framed the Constitution, including Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, believed that a separate Bill of Rights … More

    Repealing Obamacare Would Be Easier Than Repealing Prohibition

    During the occasional periods when the President isn’t altering Obamacare—unconstitutionally through executive orders—progressives like to insist that the law is “settled” and “here to stay.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D–NV) also says it’s time to move on: “Get over it. It’s the law,” he advises. But that ignores one … More
