    Bolton Questions Obama's Plan for Negotiating With Iran

    It’s the difference “between a fork and a spoon,” John Bolton said at Heritage today.

    Obama's Broken Window

    Reason’s Jacob Sullum does a great job applying some good old fashioned common sense to ridiculous lefty claims about “green jobs“: Obama says he will “transform the challenge of global climate change into an opportunity to create 5 million new green jobs,” which he likens to the economic activity triggered … More

    Al Gore Is Racist, Says Columnist

    We’ve never met Al Gore. So how do we know he is racist? Because the Washington Post’s Harold Meyerson told us so. Remember Al Gore wants to save Social Security and Medicare by putting all payroll taxes in a “iron-clad lockbox where the politicians can’t touch them.” How is this … More

    The Truth Behind Obama's 3% of Small Businesses Claim

    Obama claims that his plan would only hurt 3% of small businesses. But this is highly deceptive. He isn’t lying, but the reports that he cites mean something very specific. They do not mean that 97% of small businesses won’t see higher taxes under Obama’s plan than they see today. … More

    Why Is DoJ Ignoring Election Fraud?

    This past Friday the Supreme Court issued an order setting aside a Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals order forcing Ohio’s secretary of state Jennifer Brunner to verify the accuracy of the information provided on applications for voter registration.

    Obama's Poverty Trap

    (Newscom) Barack Obama has claimed he would lower taxes on 95% of workers — even though more than 40% of tax filers don’t even pay taxes. What he says is true, but what it really means is that he is reintroducing a massive increase in the welfare state, costing about … More
