As the World Burns: Obama’s “Stupid Stuff” Foreign Policy and its Disastrous Effects

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
Obamas foreign policy has become noteworthy for a remarkable series of bad decisions, miscalculations, and fecklessness -- tragically ironic for an administration whose foreign policy mantra is dont do stupid stuff. 2014-08-22T12:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Gayle Trotter

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
After decades of paranoid hemming and hawing, last month the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management finally approved oil exploration in Federal waters along the Atlantic coast from Delaware to Florida. 2014-08-22T12:00:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Humberto Fontova

The Islamic State of the World

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
The American people have learned that once again, they were not told the truth. We were told that by the fall of 2012, Al Qaeda was purportedly on the run, finished off by a diplomacy that exchanged bullets for talking points, kinetic warfare for bridge-building conciliation. None of it was true. These talking points masked the reality that the vacuum created by Americas withdrawal was quickly being filled by resurgent Islamists. Now, it seems, modernity is on the run, being terrorized by adherents to a violent ideology buried in the sands of centuries past. The Islamic State (ISIS) is thriving and growing in the newest episode of the perpetual clash of civilizations. 2014-08-22T11:00:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Brian and Garrett Fahy

'Death Be Not Proud'

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
Robin Williams and Lauren Bacall join this year's roster of celebrity deaths. Their names and fame preoccupy us in public mourning, though most of us were no closer to them in life than to a movie or television screen. Mourning differs in different times, but how we experience the tears and the reminiscences tells us a lot about ourselves. 2014-08-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Suzanne Fields

Poor Public Schools are Costing Us in Many Ways

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released its report, Expenditures on Children by Families, and the cost of raising a child is now up to $245,000- not including the cost of college. The most expensive part of raising children is keeping a roof over their heads and food in their bellies... 2014-08-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Charles Payne

War on Christianity Still Alive and Well in America

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
Many reject the notion that a good segment of our popular culture and of our political class is at war with Christianity. But this is a real war -- not a phony one, such as the left's manufactured "war on women." 2014-08-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z David Limbaugh

Losing a Sense of Community

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
There are no winners in Ferguson. There is only tragedy. Any justice now gotten, if at all, will be a tainted justice that does not heal, but further divides. The gleefulness of many on both sides circling like vultures should turn stomachs, not wallets and voter registration numbers. 2014-08-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Erick Erickson

Welcome to Public Relations 101

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
It takes a lot to make me angry. But one thing that will do it every time is the occasional college administrator who hides behind a university spokesperson or public relations firm. Last week, Bryan College made the serious mistake of attempting to contact me through a hired public relations firm. After Bryans public relations people contacted me, I immediately turned the tables on President Livesay and responded with a series of pointed questions. 2014-08-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Mike Adams

Are Republicans Abandoning the Obamacare Issue? Doubtful

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
In a bit of dubious cherry-picking, a new Bloomberg article concludes that the Affordable Care Act is losing its effectiveness as a political issue for Republicans and is diminishing as a major issue. How do we know the end is near-ish? Well, so many Americans are "benefiting from the law," theorizes Heidi Przybyla, that political ads are simply not doing the job anymore. 2014-08-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z David Harsanyi

Obama and 'History'

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
It's a theme this president sounded in his first inaugural address, warning that "those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent" are "on the wrong side of history." He returned to it in his remarks (bracketed by golf outings) about the horrific murder of James Foley. 2014-08-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Mona Charen

Spain Robs the Pension System to Pay its Bills

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
The "recovery" news in Spain keeps piling up. Via translation from El Economista, Government has already taken 37% of the total 'pensions piggy bank'. If extractions continue at the current rate, the fund would be exhausted in 4 years. 2014-08-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Mike Shedlock

Obama Leading from Behind in the War Against Islamic State Terrorism

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
There can be only one response to the barbaric beheading of American journalist James Foley by Islamic State terrorists. We must hunt them down and kill them. President Obama said as much in his brief remarks in the wake of the terrorists' grisly video that showed Foley's execution by a masked jihadist who spoke with a British accent and is believed to be a British citizen. 2014-08-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Donald Lambro

Obama Satire? Still Objectionable

The amount of mockery presidents endure usually corresponds with their polling. It applies to Republicans (Nixon, Bush, Bush), but sometimes also to Democrats (Carter). 2014-08-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Brent Bozell

Five Obvious Lessons From Ferguson, MO

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
Like many Americans, I have carefully followed the news from Ferguson, MO involving the tragic shooting of an 18-year-old African American, with the notable exception that he carries my name. And so, every day, Im reading about the shooting of Michael Brown and the death of Michael Brown and the autopsy of Michael Brown, all of which reminds me of the very real loss of life involved. 2014-08-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Michael Brown

Due to Russian President Vladimir Putins shenanigans and the ongoing Ukraine situation, many Western investors are fleeing Russia.

Lower Tax Rates > Targeted Tax Credits

TownHall - 5 min 43 sec ago
Some folks on the right in Washington, generally known as reformicons (short for reform conservatives), want the Republican Party to de-emphasize marginal tax rate reductions and instead focus on providing tax relief to parents. 2014-08-22T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-22T21:30:07Z Daniel J. Mitchell
