Don’t Trust Iran

By Jeb Bush

jeb.bush1214Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons poses a grave threat to the United States, to Israel, to other close partners in the Middle East, and to international peace and security. There is not yet a nuclear deal with Iran, but I agree with the many experts who believe an agreement is likely. Repeated concessions and desperate accommodation suggest the Obama Administration will do anything to secure a deal. And with America playing such a weak hand, why shouldn’t the Supreme Leader squeeze President Obama for more concessions? Continue Reading.

Tell Us Your Health-Care Plans, GOP Hopefuls

By Karl Rove

ObamaCare will irritate millions of Americans between now and 2016.

karl-roveNow more than ever, it is imperative for every Republican presidential candidate to present a concrete plan to replace ObamaCare. The Affordable Care Act remains unpopular: Wednesday’s RealClearPolitics average of polls showed 51.4% disapprove while only 43.6% approve. Voters are more likely to be opposed than are adults overall, and opponents are more fervent than supporters. Continue Reading.

Supreme Court Disasters

By Thomas Sowell

thomas-sowellMany people are looking at the recent Supreme Court decisions about ObamaCare and same-sex marriage in terms of whether they think these are good or bad policies. That is certainly a legitimate concern, for both those who favor those policies and those who oppose them.

But there is a deeper and more long-lasting impact of these decisions that raise the question whether we are still living in America, where “we the people” are supposed to decide what kind of society we want, not have our betters impose their notions on us. Continue Reading.

Supreme Court Lets Obama Administration Say Words Don’t Mean What They Say

By Michael Barone

Michael BaroneFor most people, words mean what they say. But not necessarily for a majority of Supreme Court justices in two important decisions handed down Thursday.

In the most prominent, King v. Burwell, Chief Justice John Roberts, writing for a 6-3 majority, ruled that the words “established by the state” mean “established by the state or the federal government.” Continue Reading.

Hurd on the Hill: ‘Do As I Say, Not As I Do’

Will Hurd, U.S. Representative 23rd Congressional District of Texas.

will-hurdAfter six months serving as the Representative for the 23rd Congressional District of Texas, I think I have discovered the mantra Washington bureaucrats seems to live by – do as I say, not as I do.

If you watch the news at all, you have heard that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) was hacked (presumably by a foreign adversary) and that that the personal information of millions of current and previous federal employees was compromised – including my own. Continue Reading.

The Citizens Are in Session

By Paul Jacob

Paul-JacobThe Missouri General Assembly ended its 2015 legislative session about a month ago. This is the state body designed to represent people in towns like Ferguson, which recently convulsed with conflict — protests, rioting — over the shooting of an unarmed (but, we found out, quite aggressive) young black man by a white policeman.

So what did the state politicians do about the situation? Continue Reading.

The Media’s Vile Attacks on Conservative Assimilationists

By Michelle Malkin

michelle-malkin33I have had enough of smug liberal elites wrapped in their “Celebrate Diversity” banners tearing down minority conservatives.

Look in the mirror, media and academia bigots. Your own reflexive racism and divisive rhetoric are poisoning public discourse. There’s nothing “progressive” about attacking the children and grandchildren of immigrants who proudly embrace an American identity. Continue Reading.

Facing a Changing World Balance, Obama Makes Odd Choices

By Michael Barone

Michael-Barone1213Is the world back to where it was around the year 1800? One could come to that conclusion after reading British historian John Darwin’s recent book “After Tamerlane,” which assesses the rises and falls of empires after the death in 1405 of the famously bloodthirsty Muslim Mongol monarch.

From his Central Asian base, Tamerlane conquered Persia and lands from Egypt to India, destroying captured cities and piling up enormous piles of skulls. His fame has endured, from Christopher Marlowe’s Elizabethan play to the first name of the slain Boston Marathon bomber. Continue Reading.

Now Is The Time To Unite, Mr. President

By  Karl Rove

Karl-Rove2When Obama speaks in Charleston on Friday, he should follow the lead of Gov. Nikki Haley.

Think back eight years, when an eloquent young man ran for president promising to rectify U.S. politics and unite the nation. “I don’t want to pit Red America against Blue America,” Barack Obama said in Des Moines in November 2007.
