    New START’s Fallout Keeps Failing to Make the U.S. Safer

    According to Rebeccah Heinrichs, an adjunct fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, President Obama’s fiscal year 2013 budget request reveals that “that the president has utterly failed to make good on his promises” on nuclear modernization and missile defense. During the ratification debate on the New Strategic Arms … More

    What to Do If Israel Attacks

    What to make of the recent leaks that the Israelis are telling Washington, “If we attack, we won’t tell you first”? There is some speculation that the purpose of the warning is that “if they eventually decide that a strike is necessary, they would keep the Americans in the dark … More

    White House Fantasies on “Nuclear Zero”

    Rose Gottemoeller, Acting Undersecretary for Arms Control and International Security, has reiterated the Administration’s commitment to nuclear arms control at the Getting to Zero Conference at Yale University. In her view, nuclear weapons pose an existential threat to humanity regardless of who wields them, and global disarmament is necessary for … More

    Obama Doctrine Leaves World Less Safe

    In his State of the Union address, President Obama declared that “America is back.” Examining Obama’s foreign policy efforts, however, this statement seems doubtful. To better understand Obama’s foreign policy, Heritage hosted a panel discussion with Kim Holmes, Mark Thiessen, and Clifford May. As Holmes has previously written, Obama defines … More

    Morning Bell: Obama's Crony Capitalist Trap Door

    The Obama White House says it hates tax “loopholes,” and the American people abhor them with good reason. They’re the ultimate in unfairness, allowing those in the know to wiggle their way out of playing by the same rules that apply to the rest of us. That’s why, at first glance, … More

    Nightmare Cinema: A World Under Obama’s Arms Control

    In a recent speech to the Conference on Global Zero, Rose Gottemoeller, the Assistant Secretary for Arms Control, Verification and Compliance, told the cheering masses, “New START was just the beginning. Going forward, we know that we are going to have to think bigger and bolder.” For those who don’t follow … More

    Voices of Opposition Speak Out Against Obama's Contraception Mandate 'Accommodation'

    “Simply unacceptable.” That’s the near-unanimous response to President Obama’s supposed “accommodation” offered to those who objected to Obamacare’s mandate that religious institutions pay for contraceptive products and services—including abortion-inducing drugs. That mandate — which tramples heavily on religious liberties — drew tremendous fire across the board, from Christians and Jews alike, drowning the President … More

    Conscience "Accommodation" Doesn’t Address Underlying Problem

    On Friday, President Obama announced an “accommodation” to the Health and Human Services (HHS) contraceptive mandate: Rather than requiring religious organizations that provide group health insurance to cover sterilization, contraception, and some abortion-inducing drugs, those religious organizations will now likely pay higher premiums to insurance companies who will provide these … More

    Senator Reid on the Budget: Not Interested

    It is bad enough that, after more than 1,000 days since passing a budget resolution, the Senate has decided to forgo this fundamental obligation once again this year. Even worse is the absurd excuse by Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D–NV) that a budget resolution is unnecessary because Congress already … More
