For months Obama has been saying, “I’m gonna do it, I’m really gonna do it—unless of course you give me what I want.” He even told us the timing; it would be after the election.

In doing so, he will be keeping a promise to his radical base (Hispanic...

When I heard that Dr. Martin Salia, a Sierra Leone native who is married to a US citizen and who contacted ebola while treating patients in his native country, had been flown here for treatment and was in “very critical” condition, I thought “if we can cure him, then American medicine...

There’s been quite a commotion over the video of “Obamacare architect” Jonathan Gruber admitting what everybody who’s been paying any real attention already knew: the intentional duplicity with which the law was passed. The only surprise is how open Gruber was about it.

The video shows Gruber describing fairly accurately how liberals...

A constitutional crisis may loom on the horizon if President Obama follows through on his threats of executive action on immigration reform.

So it might be a good time to revisit what the Founders had to say about protecting future generations from the kind of tyranny that could occur even...

Amidst all the good news from election 2014, the victories of Tim Scott, South Carolina’s Senator, and Mia Love, new Representative from Utah’s 4th District, are especially noteworthy.

There’s no way to deny that their race becomes important, if only because Democrats have emphasized race so very much. Sadly,...

Fortunately, we haven’t had very many Ebola patients in the US so far. But there have been quite a few interesting things to note about the group of patients we have had.

The first is that all of them except Thomas Eric Duncan seem to have contracted Ebola while caring for other...

A District Court judge in Maine has overturned a lower court ruling that restricted Kaci Hickox’s movements, which means that the formerly-quarantined nurse is now free to go about her business. The reason? The science on ebola transmission is apparently settled:

Judge Charles C. LaVerdiere ruled Hickox must continue daily...

The senior official in the Obama administration who referred to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “chickshit” probably has much more courageous things than Operation Isotope on his resume.

Operation Isotope was a raid involving the rescue of hijacked Sabena Flight 571, and Netanyahu was a participant, along with another Israeli Prime...

Spain’s Ebola patient zero is a nurse’s assistant.
