GLENN BECK I am a huge fan of Minnesota, but apparently some of the voters there are spending too much time in the 10,000 lakes and not enough researching candidates. Gov. Jesse Ventura? Sen. Al Franken? And, if those two aren't enough, Minnesota is the only state that voted for Walter Mondale​ instead of President Reagan in 1984... (more)

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY When Newt Gingrich says he never lobbied, he's not telling the truth. When he was a paid consultant for the drug-industry's lobby group, Gingrich worked hard to persuade Republican congressmen to vote for the Medicare drug subsidy that the industry favored. To deny Gingrich was a lobbyist requires an Obama-like word parsing over who is and who isn't a lobbyist... (more)

NATIONAL JOURNAL President Obama should abandon his run for a second term and turn over the reins of the Democratic Party to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, two one-time Democratic pollsters wrote in Monday's Wall Street Journal, which appeared online Sunday... (more)

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER In 2008, the slogan was "Yes We Can." For 2011-12, it's "We Can't Wait." What happened in between? Candidate Obama, the vessel into which myriad dreams were poured, met the reality of governance. His near-$1 trillion stimulus begat a stagnant economy with 9 percent unemployment. His attempt at Wall Street reform left in place a still-too-big-to-fail financial system, as vulnerable today as when he came into office... (more)

AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE The "time has come" to deal with Iran, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Sunday, refusing to rule out military action to curb the Islamic republic's nuclear ambitions... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES This time, Republicans may have to wait till spring -- or later -- to learn who in their party will challenge President Obama next fall. In 2008, the GOP presidential nomination battle was effectively over by February, when the revived campaign of Sen. John McCain triumphed over the moneyed war machine of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney... (more)

DAVID LIMBAUGH It is open season for the liberal media on any GOP presidential candidate who displays the audacity to surge in the polls, the latest targets being Herman Cain​ and Newt Gingrich​. A reasonable case can be made for some of these criticisms, and conservatives often concede the weaknesses, but there is no justification for this same media's ongoing cover-up for the current White House occupant...

WASHINGTON TIMES Top Republican senators said late Friday the Justice Department has been stonewalling their request for more information on Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, and said her previous work as solicitor general "may satisfy both requirements for recusal" from the upcoming health-care case...

WASHINGTON TIMES The Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report Monday confirming Obama administration meddling in the drafting of controversial provisions of Kenya's constitution, which were ratified last year.

JOSEPH FARAH I should have known better. Despite all I have witnessed in watching Newt Gingrich over the many years he has been in public life, I starting softening to him -- largely on the basis of his debate performances. I began to think I could live with this guy as president -- which is almost understandable given the current squatter in the White House... (more)

Most Republicans voted for the measure while a majority of Democrats opposed it.

JOHN HAYWARD The United States government officially passed the $15 trillion debt milestone on Tuesday. The Republican National Committee produced a little video to commemorate the occasion, and remind us of the bygone days when Barack Obama​ stridently declared $9 trillion in debt was too much, and he'd cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term...

ROGER HEDGECOCK Violent, lice-ridden and foul-mouthed with high self-esteem. Ignorant spoiled brats shouting incoherent rage. The Occupiers. The perfect product of the government education machine. Obama's shock troops in the war to "utterly transform America"... (more)

EMILY MILLER Anti-Washington fervor has reached a new high. According to Gallup, 82 percent of Americans now disapprove of what they see on Capitol Hill. No wonder, considering crony capitalism has enabled the two parties to rack up $15 trillion in debt. The political establishment needs to change... (more)

NATIONAL REVIEW A group of Republican senators has proposed a plan to reform welfare -- not so much because they expect it to succeed, but to make an important point: that the deficit supercommittee can meet its $1.2 trillion goal without raising taxes... (more)


November 16, 2011
WASHINGTON TIMES The Treasury Department said Wednesday that the federal debt has climbed to a record $15 trillion -- a staggering figure that caps a precipitous decade-long rise.

NEWSMAX Perhaps it was jet lag, or the fact that President Barack Obama had Asia on his mind because he was bringing closure to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit he hosted in Hawaii. Whatever it was, it provided an oops moment when Obama confused his birthplace state with Asia... (more)

AMY CONTRADA Mitt Romney swore this oath on January 2, 2003, when he became Governor of Massachusetts: "I do solemnly swear and affirm that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all of the duties incumbent upon me as Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts... (more)

DAVID LIMBAUGH President Barack Obama's various remarks at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation CEO business summit in Honolulu over the weekend show he is simply incapable of growing in office. In just a few short statements, we saw many of the familiar practices through which he has alienated such a large percentage of the American people and damaged the economy... (more)

ROBERT SPENCER TLC's much-ballyhooed All-American Muslim reality show makes its agenda clear in its opening sequences: shots of a hijabbed girl roller-skating, Muslims dancing at a wedding, an American flag waving proudly in the breeze, and newspaper clippings proclaiming "4 in 10 Americans 'suspicious' of Muslims," "Outrage at Ground Zero 'Mosque,'" and "Muslims Brace for Backlash"...
