The Nuclear Option --War on Math: Washington Declares There's Nothing Left to Cut

With the War on Women now apparently behind us, politicians here have turned their attention to the next front: The War on Math. After months of agonizing over the draconian “sequester” cuts to the military and other government programs that absolutely nobody outside of Washington ever actually noticed, the House decided to scrap them.

The Nuclear Option: Obama Mocks the Constitution

It is as if he has never read the actual Constitution. Or that he simply could not comprehend one of the most basic tenets of it -- that the legislature writes laws, which then go to the president for either his signature or veto. Presidents do not get to write laws. They do not get to ignore laws they do not like or make up new ones on a whim. Nov 21, 2013 3:09 PM PT

The Nuclear Option: Democrats, Not GOP, Facing Looming Civil War

Despite what the hysterical media will tell you, those distant blasts you heard last week rolling from New York City to Richmond were not cannon fire from the ongoing civil war within the Republican Party. They were the first shots fired in the civil war that is about to break wide open within the Democratic Party. Nov 14, 2013 2:46 AM PT

The Nuclear Option: Sarah Palin Knew a Death Panel When She Saw One

Mama Grizzly warned us this would happen. Under Obamacare, the sick and weak and old would stand before death panels of bureaucrats to be granted life or death. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was laughed off the stage for making what we now know is a prescient prediction four years ago. Perhaps she is one of the few who actually read the healthcare bill before it passed.

The Nuclear Option: Best. Shutdown. Ever!

You are the supposedly conservative alternative in politics, and we are currently $16 trillion in the hole. The least you can do is stop spending so much money everyday to keep the vile beast going. Also, as the supposedly conservative alternative, you should be thrilled that all the "non-essential" bureaucrats have been sent home while our military remains at post. Oct 3, 2013 5:27 PM PT

Grandstand: Ted's Cruzade Doomed to Fail

I have always deeply admired Ted Cruz and what he stands for. I still do. And I share his stated goal of killing Obamacare before it destroys this great country. But his "plan" that will unfold this week on the Senate floor is nothing more than a parliamentary pratfall. Sep 25, 2013 5:23 PM PT

The Nuclear Option: Terror Reigns in the Land of Gun Control

For those of us foolish enough to live in a crime-gripped city while also summarily denied our constitutional right to protect ourselves, this week's massacre at the Navy Yard pretty well sums up our insane, defenseless existence. Sep 19, 2013 3:45 PM PT

The Nuclear Option: Cut-and-Run Crowd Beats the Drum for Syria War

Remember 2003? That was the last time all these towering statesmen rose in a fury for war. Saddam Hussein had used chemical weapons against his own people. He harbored weapons of mass destruction that could slip into the hands of terrorists. Oh, to read the strident statements people like John Kerry, Chuck Hagel, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden made back then. They sounded every bit as sincere and committed as they do today.
