MICHELLE MALKIN If a private health insurer had engaged in the kind of criminal obstruction that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has been tied to in her home state of Kansas, it would be a federal case. Instead, it's a non-story in the Washington press. Nothing to see here. Move along... (more)


October 27, 2011

FOX NEWS In keeping with his new campaign theme of "we can't wait," President Obama today will roll out a plan to put more money in the pockets of some of the nation's 36 million student loan recipients. Obama has broad latitude in this area -- certainly broader than the first two parts of his western campaign trip, underwater mortgages and subsidies for hiring veterans... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES The same day that the president announced a student-loan relief program in Denver, the University of Colorado announced a 9 percent tuition increase. If nothing else, we appreciate the irony. On Wednesday, President Obama announced a plan to use his executive powers to allow students to reduce their student-loan debt payments and seek outstanding loan forgiveness at 20 instead of 25 years after graduation...

NEWSMAX Two influential conservative publications -- The Wall Street Journal and the National Review -- diverge in their reviews of Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry's tax plan.

NEWSMAX Rick Perry still can spring a huge surprise and mount a comeback to become the Republican candidate to face President Barack Obama at the ballot box next year, influential pollster Scott Rasmussen tells Newsmax.TV in an exclusive interview.

CHRISTOPHER RUDDY Polls continue to show that President Barack Obama should stand little chance of re-election -- a new Harris Interactive survey shows that the incumbent has a negative rating even among Democrats and liberals. But Obama's team has a "secret plan" for retaining the White House... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH I don't know how to say this bluntly and politely. But when Karl Rove speaks, remember that this "political genius" known in some quarters as "the architect" is actually the architect of the Barack Obama presidency. It took George Bush's failures of leadership, orchestrated and advised all the way by Rove, to deliver America into the hands of Obama... (more)

RICHARD VIGUERIE The Vatican's Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace has long been a source of radical political thinking within the Catholic Church. This week's statement by the Council, "Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Public," confirmed the radical economic agenda of the leftist intellectuals who hold sway there...

ANN COULTER If I were a liberal, I would have spent the last week in shock that a Democratic audience in Flint, Mich., cheered Vice President Joe Biden's description of a policeman being killed. (And if I were a liberal desperately striving to keep my job on MSNBC, I'd say the Democrats looked "hot and horny" for dead cops -- as Chris Matthews​ said of a Republican audience that cheered for the death penalty)...

WASHINGTON TIMES The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has always intended to expand beyond the confines of airport terminals. Its agents have been conducting more and more surprise groping sessions for women, children and the elderly in locations that have nothing to do with aviation. It's all part of TSA's Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) program, which drew additional scrutiny following an Oct. 18 blitz in Tennessee... (more)

AUDREY HUDSON Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano faced a determined panel of House Republicans on Wednesday who grilled her on immigration policies, border security, and how her agency responded after the death of a federal officer exposed the "Fast and Furious" controversy... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER President Obama is now taking credit for ending the U.S. war in Iraq when the reality is that President George W. Bush did so in 2008 by approving the Status of Forces Agreement arduously negotiated between the U.S. and Iraqi governments... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH There's a brand-new "birther" in town, the media would like you to know. It's Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who suggested in an interview he's not sure if he has seen Barack Obama's real birth certificate -- yet, he adds, has no reason to doubt his birth story. Why are the media so determined to smoke out high-profile skeptics on the issue of Obama's truthfulness about his birth narrative?... (more)


October 26, 2011
WASHINGTON TIMES Hoping to breathe new life into his flagging presidential campaign, Texas Gov. Rick Perry rolled out a sweeping economic plan Tuesday that would give taxpayers the option of paying a 20 percent flat income tax, balance the budget by 2020 and cap federal spending at levels not seen since Lyndon B. Johnson was president... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN Last fall, before the midterm shellacking, Vice President Joe Biden admonished rank-and-file Democratic voters to "stop whining." Uncle Tough Guy should practice what he screeches. The 2012 campaign has barely begun, but Biden's thin skin makes a spring roll wrapper look impenetrable... (more)

JOHN STOSSEL For years, American education from kindergarten through high school has been a virtual government monopoly. Conventional wisdom is that government must run the schools. But government monopolies don't do anything well. They fail because they have no real competition. Yet competition is what gives us better phones, movies, cars -- everything that's good... (more)


October 25, 2011
FRANK GAFFNEY Conventional wisdom has it that the 2012 presidential election will be all about the dismal economy, unemployment and the soaring deficit. That appears a safe bet because such matters touch the electorate, are much in the news at the moment and have indisputably become worse on Barack Obama's watch... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST Former FBI informant Brandon Darby says the Occupy Wall Street movement "is nothing less than a current manifestation of an international revolutionary push in which I myself used to play a significant role." Darby is slated to detail the real story behind the "Occupy" movement at a Thursday briefing at the National Press Club. The gathering is sponsored by America's Survival, Inc.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES President Obama's decision to pull all U.S. forces out of Iraq by Dec. 31 is an "absolute disaster" that puts the burgeoning Arab democracy at risk of an Iranian "strangling," said an architect of the 2007 troop surge that turned around a losing war... (more)
