    What No One Wants to Admit About Social Security Taxes

    It’s a bummer when you see how much income tax comes out of your paycheck. But when you see that Social Security line item, do you think, “At least that’s going to pay for my retirement”? It’s not. The tax money you’re paying into Social Security today is going to … More

    Washington Post Gets the Numbers Wrong on Judicial Nominees

    The Washington Post claims that the confirmation of President Obama’s judicial nominees might “get relatively close to Bush’s eight-year total”—if the Senate continues confirming them at the current rate. But comparing Obama’s nominations in just 5 years and change with all eight years of Bush’s administration is misleading. President Obama’s … More

    The Obama Administration Looks Weak by Considering Pollard as Bargaining Chip

    According to The Washington Post, the Obama administration is considering releasing convicted spy Jonathan Pollard from a federal penitentiary, and using him as a bargaining chip in the latest round of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. It is important to review the facts of the case that led to Pollard’s life sentence. … More

    Bill Clinton, The Washington Post, and The Heritage Foundation Agree on This

    The Obama administration is beginning to transition control of the Internet away from the United States—and that has us worried. Former President Bill Clinton and The Washington Post’s editorial board aren’t so thrilled, either. Last week, Heritage experts warned that the Department of Commerce giving up oversight of the Internet … More

    Washington Post: 'Obama's Foreign Policy Is Based on Fantasy'

    President Obama has lost The Washington Post’s editorial board with his disastrous foreign policy. In a hard-hitting editorial today, the Post’s editors declared Obama’s outlook a “fantasy” and said that “For five years, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate … More

    Washington Post: Obama Administration Slowed Red Tape to Avoid 2012 Election Backlash

    Last fall, Heritage Foundation analysts noted an eerie silence coming from Obama regulatory agencies. The production of new rules, which until then had been in overdrive, slipped into a lower gear. And the regulatory agenda, which the Administration was required by law to release every spring and fall, did not … More

    Government Contractors Prosper, Hispanics Struggle in a Country Growing More Bifurcated

    Sunday’s front page of The Washington Post carried two very different yet related stories about what is happening in our country. The fact they shared this prized journalistic real estate on the same day is no coincidence. One is a story about the ravages of bad nutrition and obesity among … More

    Pakistan Threat Growing

    Yesterday’s revelation in The Washington Post about the large portion of the U.S. intelligence budget going toward collection efforts on Pakistan is not surprising. What is surprising is that that the Obama Administration publicly downplays the terrorist threat that continues to emanate from the Afghanistan–Pakistan region. According to the article, … More

    Roll Out the Barrels? Obamacare Funds to Sponsor Bourbon Festivals

    One day after The Washington Post reported that federal taxpayer dollars could be used to promote Obamacare through porta-potties, the same outlet posted this e-mail from a Kentucky state official on how the Commonwealth plans to use federal funds to promote Obamacare: I briefly scanned a schedule of upcoming mobile … More

    “Russian Reset”: Time to Listen to the Critics

    In a well-reasoned broadside, The Washington Post’s editorial board blasted President Obama’s Russian policy and his Berlin speech this past Thursday. The editorial justly criticized the naiveté with which Obama reached out to Russian president Vladimir Putin with a badly thought out proposal to cut a third of the U.S. … More
