    In Pictures: Debt by President? Obama Leads the Pack

    When House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D–CA) staff released a chart in May that attempted to illustrate how much past Presidents increased the national debt, it collided with a meticulous critique from Politifact that in turn led to a revised chart.

    Scribecast: Cyrus Nowrasteh Discusses the Only Movie Banned in America

    Five years ago ABC aired “The Path to 9/11,” a five-hour docudrama that explained how terrorists plotted to attack America on that frightful September morning in 2001.

    What's in the Missing Kagan Documents?

    In the nearly 160,000 pages of recently released documents that relate to Elena Kagan, precious little appears about Paula Jones — even though Kagan was intimately involved in President Clinton’s sexual harassment lawsuit in her capacity in the White House Counsel’s office.

    Well Said, But Mr. President . . .

    Violent extremism of any stripe is beyond the pale. The intentional murder of innocents remains one of the world’s ultimate evils. If only everyone speaking on the issue of anti-government extremism chose their words as carefully as President Clinton. Alas, the talking heads of MSNBC have not. They have used … More

    A Post-Health Summit Warning: Is Incremental Control Next for Obamacare?

    In the wake of the White House’s health care summit, reconciliation is still seen as the likely route that congressional leaders and their liberal allies will take to jam Obamacare through Congress. Congressional Democrats and President Barack Obama already are using the summit as a public relations vehicle to help … More

    Voice of America Reaches Out to Haiti

    While television and new technologies like Internet and cell phones are the focus of strategy at the Broadcasting Board of Governors that oversees the U.S. government’s international broadcasting assets, shortwave radio remains by far the most effective means of reaching audiences around the world, particularly in the developing countries. It … More

    Tweet of the Week: @DavidSirota on Heritage and Haiti

    Earlier this week, The Foundry carried a post by Jim Roberts, a Heritage Senior Research Fellow in Freedom and Growth, which wisely recommended that President Obama appoint former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W.
