Unlike the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times doesn’t have a motto.  But if it did, this would work: All the news that’s fit to print for people who don’t know any better, reported by those who don’t want you to. Exhibit 7,593,648: A front-page story on how the drought is…

First it was union members being fined for not picketing for Elizabeth Warren.  Then it was Warren supporters taunting a gay staffer with Scott Brown’s campaign. Now black supporters of Scott Brown have received the sort of racially based taunts that we have seen directed in the past at Republicans and Tea Party…

Forbes contributor, Larry Bell, released an article late last night entitled, “Pants On Fire: Obama Administration Scrambles for Cover as Benghazi Lie Explodes.” The article, drawing on reports from CNN, reveals a picture the Obama administration is desperately trying to sweep under the rug.

It’s really hard for the Commission on Presidential Debates to find truly neutral moderators, because of how neutral is perceived. If the moderator were from Fox News, even if a non-ideological news person like Bret Baier, there would be howls of protest from the Obama campaign and the media. Yet Candy Crowley is…

For months we’ve read poll results about how much more likable President Obama is than Mitt Romney. I don’t believe them, and the reason I don’t is that for three years I’ve heard people preface their disagreements with Obama’s policies by saying, “I really like and respect him, but…” Why qualify the…

The debate Tuesday night is a “town hall” style. While the prevailing wisdom is that this will help Obama, I’m not so sure.  While it will give Obama the chance to give hope and change type mini-speeches, it also gives Romney the chance to push the American capitalism versus European nanny government…

In yet another solid interview, Dan Bongino outlines his vision for Washinton, D.C. The clip is less than 5 minutes, and I recommend watching it in its entirety, but I thought his response to the question of Obamacare was particularly good. Q. Is the Healthcare Reform Act the answer? A. It’s only the answer…
