When President Obama said he would fundamentally transform America, who could have guessed it meant that exotic diseases and once-vanquished illnesses would break out across the county?

The Zika virus, which we have been following closely, is increasing its footprint within our country. Florida Governor Rick Scott just announced that the Zika...

Few sciences have been as settled as dietary science…. until recently.

I chronicled the substantial revisions issued regarding the scientific “consensus” about cholesterol last year. The “War on Cholesterol” has officially ended, though there is evidence that it adversely impacted American health and the nation’s egg farmers while reaping absolutely no benefit.

Although we haven’t heard much about it recently, the VA scandal is very much alive and well. The National Review published an article about the wide-ranging problems with the VA in April of this year.  Here’s a quick reminder, neatly encapsulated in NR’s review of VA-related stories:

The prof’s post entitled “ObamaCare is the Gateway Drug to Single-payer” couldn’t be more apt.  There are serious flaws with ObamaCare, and in the terms by which it was presented to the American people, it has been a colossal failure from its foundation to its implementation . . . at least...

While he was running for Senate in the 2012, Ted Cruz spoke extensively on the virtues of portable health insurance — insurance not associated with any particular employer, but insurance that works more like vehicle insurance or homeowner’s insurance.

Though the idea is not unique to Senator Cruz, in a world where...

There is another disturbing report related to the spread of the Zika virus; however, this one doesn’t involve birth defects or neurological problems.

Millions of honey bees were killed after areas of South Carolina were sprayed to kill the mosquitoes that transmit the pathogen.

Single-payer healthcare is the Democrats’ holy grail, because it put the government completely in charge of one-fifth of the economy and every single person’s healthcare.

It’s total control, but at least as of 2008, it wasn’t a platform on which Obama could run. But as this early video shows, single-payer was always...

The progressive left is apparently intent on confusing and traumatizing children when it comes to “gender identity.”  The latest example of this mission is a unicorn coloring exercise in which children are asked to color their unicorn to match the gender they “feel” is their own.
