    The Future of Drones

    A 60 Minutes segment that aired last Sunday, “Drones over America,” offered a friendly reminder that not all drones are bad and that drones are indeed coming. “We’re looking at the future. And whether we like it or not, the future is looking back at us,” as CBS correspondent Morley … More

    Benghazi Eyewitnesses to Testify on Capitol Hill

      Three more eyewitnesses to the Benghazi terrorist attack on September 11, 2012, will finally have the opportunity to speak to Members of Congress next week. Without increasing insistence from the Hill, it is highly unlikely that their accounts would ever be heard. From day one, the Obama White House … More

    Wolf Urges Select Committee on Benghazi

    Congressman Frank Wolf (R–VA) last week on the floor of the House redoubled his efforts to create a congressional select committee to investigate Benghazi. More than a year has passed since the terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility, and far too many questions remain unanswered. Nearly 11 months ago, … More

    "60 Minutes" Returns Spotlight to Benghazi

    With Sunday’s 60 Minutes segment on Benghazi, CBS renewed interest in a calamity that the Obama Administration had hoped would be long forgotten. However, until the American people, Congress, and the families of the four American victims of the terrorist attack on September 11, 2012, have more and better answers … More

    Sentimental Journey: Obama, Clinton and "60 Minutes"

    There is no other way to say it: “60 Minutes” blew it. Steve Kroft’s interview with President Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, broadcast Sunday night, was mushy, sentimental, and oh so easy-going. As for news… it elicited practically no information about Hillary Clinton’s record as Secretary of … More

    Media Scandal in the Making: CBS Posts Still More of President's Benghazi Interview

    On Sunday night, a full 54 days after the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, CBS finally posted a critically important segment of the 60 Minutes interview with President Obama conducted on September 12. Unbelievably, it was left on the cutting room floor even as 60 Minutes aired a long segment … More

    Morning Bell: Obama and Congress Are Choosing to Cause a Recession

    President Obama recently said, “The most important lesson I’ve learned is you can’t change Washington from the inside.” That’s demoralizing to hear when a recession is bearing down on the economy—and it’s an inside job. The Congressional Budget Office has forecasted a fresh recession to hit next year if Taxmageddon, … More

    INFOGRAPHIC: Obama Foreign Policy Strewn with "Bumps in the Road"

    In an interview with 60 Minutes on Sunday, President Obama referred to the problematic relations with Middle Eastern governments as “bumps in the road.” These “bumps” (failures, in reality) are the result of a policy based on profound naiveté and shortsightedness. When he came to office, President Obama attempted to … More

    Romney's "60 Minutes" Fix For Social Security and Medicare

    President Obama’s and Governor Romney’s appearances on “60 Minutes” Sunday revealed an interesting contrast. The President punted on a serious question about the nation’s concern over spending—blaming everything on President George W. Bush. Right. Obama’s been in office how many years now? At what point does he take responsibility for … More

    Obama Ducks Responsibility for Washington's Spending Binge

    In a recent “60 Minutes” interview, host Steve Kroft primed President Obama with this statement: “Most Americans think we’re spending too much money.” To which Obama uttered a contemplative “Mm-hm.” An understatement, indeed. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that federal spending will reach $3.56 trillion, or about 23 percent … More
