    Agriculture Isn't About to Leave U.S. Over Lack of Immigration Reform

    The Obama Administration is getting desperate as it clamors for reasons to push comprehensive immigration reform.

    The Protesters' Cry for Freedom

    The international scene in the past couple of weeks was supposed to be a smiling gathering of nations for the Olympics.

Where is President … More

    Putin Has Set His Sights on Ukraine

    Last week, I visited Kiev’s Maidan — “Independence” square. It had something of a street festival feel, but there was also the sense that violence would soon strike. Barricades of old tires and garbage bags filled with snow protected the ramshackle booths and tent cities erected by pro-democracy groups from … More

    Susan Rice: No Regrets Over Initial Benghazi Comments

    Former ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said today she does not regret her initial statements on the situation in Benghazi, when she appeared on the Sunday political shows and said the violence in Benghazi was “spontaneous” and caused by an anti-Muslim video. “What I said to you that … More

    Blame-America-First Crowd Ignores Terrorist Threats and Dictators

    The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) is an ambiguous, inherently flawed treaty. It’s also the creation of liberal non-governmental organizations (NGOs) whose attitude is simple: blame America first. When Secretary of State John Kerry signed the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) on September 25, he paid tribute to these NGOs, … More

    Tony Stark, Come Home: Hollywood Seeks Tax Breaks to Lure More Movies

    Hollywood’s new role may be as the world capital for film entertainment in name only, unless California can compete with other states in tax incentives, industry watchers say. FilmL.A. Inc., the nonprofit film office of the city and county of Los Angeles, has partnered with Warner Bros. Entertainment, unions and others … More

    Few People Actually Raise Families on Minimum Wage

    Bias often appears in facts someone omits, not in actual inaccuracies. Take the New York Times’ new minimum wage calculator, which shows how difficult it can be to support oneself on just a minimum-wage income. Left unsaid: Few minimum-wage workers do so. The Times’ calculator asks users to try to … More

    'The Pursuit of Happiness' Doesn't Justify Obamacare Mandates

    No, Rep. Pelosi, the “pursuit of happiness” clause in the Declaration of Independence does not make Obamacare okay. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently invoked the Declaration to defend ObamaCare. “To go to back to our Founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit … More

    Common Core: The "Tin Foil" Is Spreading

    Missouri State Representative Mike Lair (R) likens opponents of Common Core to “conspiracy theorists.” So much so that he decided to include $8 for tin foil hats in a budget bill for K-12 education because “if you can’t deal with folks with logic….I always felt you use humor.” Well, we’ve … More
