    Obamacare’s Porous Protections Against Funding Elective Abortion

    As states roll out their newly mandated high-risk pools under ObamaCare, a troubling trend is emerging.  Pennsylvania and Maryland released documents on their state websites earlier this summer that implied their plans would cover elective abortions.  Additionally, New Mexico posted a draft summary of its high-risk pool services that listed … More

    Guest Blogger: Dr. Eric Novack on Mandatory Insanity

    The debate over health care reform has been a theoretical affair, full of abstractions that contradict one another. Amid all the ambiguity, one fact is unequivocal and unprecedented.

    Guest Blogger Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA): Obama Must Conduct the KORUS

    Responding to North Korea’s torpedoing of a South Korean warship in March, I blogged a series of recommendations – one being that we should ratify the long shelved Korea-US Free Trade Agreement (KORUS).

    At a hearing in March I asked Secretary Tim Geithner whether the US was at risk for losing our AAA credit rating, as a Moody’s quarterly report had indicated.  He point blank responded that there is “not a chance” that this would happen to our country.  I wish I could … More

    Guest Blogger: Cliff May on Strengthening America

    What can be done to advance American strength? The list is long and the mission is urgent. It starts with this: Strengthening America must become a priority. That is not the case at present as anyone who takes the trouble to read the Obama administration’s new 52-page National Security Strategy … More

    Guest Blogger: Rep. Pete King (R-NY) on Al-Qaeda

    In some respects, the recent attempted Times Square car bombing and the arrest of Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized citizen, point to a significant success in America’s Global War on Terror. In the aftermath of 9/11, our government quickly reformed the Intelligence Community and established the Department of Homeland Security, moves … More

    Guest Blogger: Congressman Jeff Miller (R-FL) On Investigating the John Adams Project

    During this past Wednesday’s mark-up of the Fiscal Year 2011 National Defense Authorization Act my fellow conservatives on the House Armed Services Committee stood strongly on the side of the American people, vociferously fighting for security, liberty, and freedom through our Defend America First platform.  One of the issues debated … More

    At today’s Senate Foreign Relations hearing on the START Treaty (a U.S.-Russia nuclear arms pact) that President Obama is seeking Congressional approval for, I asked Senator Kerry a simple question. Should it be the goal of the U.S. to have a missile defense system that renders nuclear threats by other … More
