The politics of pandemics were always going to make America's trip on Ebola's deadly rollercoaster a white-knuckle affair, but with Barack Obama in charge things were bound to be worse — the hairpin turns would be sharper, the drops steeper, the g-forces more punishing for everyone along for the nerve-wracking ride.Read More...

Many people used to believe an Obama presidency would mark a turning point for race relations. They ignored Obama's political background, his long association with a hate-mongering pastor, and his radical affiliations. Now, even the President's staunchest supporters — African Americans — are starting to admit the obvious: Barack Obama isn't a racial healer. He's the opposite.

At WorldNet Daily, columnist Patrick Buchanan asks a question liberals everywhere should ask before they shake the election campaign pom-poms for Hillary Clinton.
Has she ever been right about anything important in her political career?
Was she right to vote against the Surge in Iraq in 2006?
Was she right in her "Reset" policy initiative with the Russians?
Was she right on the question of removing Moammar Qadafi in Libya?
Was she right to deny extra security to the American embassy in Benghazi?
Buchanan asks (and answers) these and other questions in one of his typically insightful columns.
We've suffered terribly for letting racial symbolism be the determining factor in the last two presidential elections. Are we about to let gender symbolism be the determining factor in 2016? Have we learned anything from our experience? Anything at all?Read More... Local Archived Copy
Climate-change charlatan Al Gore has been so wrong so many times in his dire global warming predictions that it's a wonder anyone listens to him at all. He may have made a fortune doing it, but the man simply has nothing worthwhile to say on the subject of earth's climate. But he continues to command respect among a sizable number of people – many of them government officials and liberal elite opinion leaders. So here in the fact-centric community, we consider it our duty to keep pointing out when Mr. Gore's wild predictions go belly-up, as they always do.
The latest example? The Daily Mail reports that, contrary to Gore's apocalyptic warning in 2007 during his acceptance speech after winning the Nobel Peace Prize for climate-change alarmism, not only has the arctic sea ice cap not melted away, it's gotten larger. And not just a little bit larger – a whole lot larger. We've got the satellite photos to prove it.Read More... Local Archived Copy
The JV Team?
Obama calls ISIS the JV Team... He doesn't fight them in Iraq... he lets everyone invade America by opening our southern border... he doesn't want to fight terror in Chicago, or Las Vegas, or Boston, or Denver. ISIS doesn't fear America and they don't fear this President.
President Bush was different... “I'm fighting them over there, so that we don't have to fight them in our cities.”
Imagine millions of soldiers on our southern border, flooding into our nation. Imagine also that our own leaders were providing material support for this invasion – intentionally undermining our border security.Read More... Local Archived Copy
The IRS scandal – in which a politicized Internal Revenue Service has become an arm of the Democrat party and an instrument of political repression used by liberals against conservatives – should serve as a warning to every politically-aware American citizen, regardless of party affiliation.Read More...

Good question, isn't it? It was asked by Bernadette Lancelin, in an interview with a Fox News reporter. She lives in Houston, near a closed middle school that the Obama administration is thinking of converting into a detention center, where large numbers of illegal alien children will be warehoused. Whether people like Bernadette agree or not, and whether ordinary Americans agree or not, the President and his party are seemingly intent on turning the United States into the orphanage of the world. They see power and political advantage in it. Bernadette and the rest of us see our neighborhoods getting worse. Don't try and tell us we're racists or that we don't like little Hispanic children. We just think they should be back in their home countries, with their mothers and fathers.Read More... Local Archived Copy
The Obama Administration is encouraging thousands of Central American families and unaccompanied children to come to the U.S. illegally. Now, to relieve the squalid and overcrowded conditions at the facilities used to house the illegals, the President is sending buses and planes full of them to cities all over the country. Thankfully, the residents of at least one small town, Murrieta, California, are standing up and blocking the buses, at no small risk to themselves. We can only hope that more citizens follow Murrieta's example.Read More... Local Archived Copy
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria – aka ISIS – has, in a strikingly short time, siezed control of a huge geographic area stretching from the eastern edge of the Syrian city of Aleppo, all the way to Fallujah in western Iraq. Their stated goal is to create a new caliphate – and little seems to be standing in their way.Read More... Local Archived Copy
When Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein did their now-legendary reporting in the 1970s, they shone a spotlight on abuse of power and corruption that led to the resignation of a president. It was the epitome of what a free press can do when it fulfills its constitutional role and duty.Read More...
Hillary Clinton is looking less and less inevitable as the next President of the United States, don't you think? Her recent press interviews haven't gone well, the press isn't ignoring her gaffes like they used to, the sales of her new book are cratering...Read More...
Did Barack Obama really break federal law, and release committed, fanatical jihadists to distract the country from the VA scandal? It sure looks that way to us. The White House has now admitted what every thinking American who's paying attention already knows: it refused to tell Congress before trading away five Taliban heavy-hitters from Gitmo for one undeserving American military deserter: Bowe Bergdahl.Read More...
It was an article of faith with liberals that the election of Barack Obama in 2008 would result in the restoration of the world's good opinion about America, after all the PR damage done to her reputation by the insensitive, blundering, war-mongering President Bush. Conservatives have always been dubious about that assumption.Read More...
