The Nuclear Option -- 'I can do whatever I want': President Dines on Caviar While Debt Explodes

America’s president — heir to the world’s greatest document of freedom ever drawn up by man — strode across the hallowed grounds of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. With his hands clasped behind his back as a fuehrer surveying his troops or his kingdom, he told a gaggle of onlookers, “That’s the good thing about being president. I can do whatever I want.” Feb 12, 2014 5:42 PM PT

The Nuclear Option — War on Republicans: Amnesty Would Finish the GOP

Immigration as a top concern for American voters currently polls somewhere around two or three percent, according to the latest Gallup survey. That is right down there with "lack of respect for each other" and "hunger." And remember, a good portion of that two or three percent who consider immigration their most pressing issue do so because they want the federal government to simply do its job and enforce its own immigration laws and protect the borders. So, why is it that, suddenly, Republican leaders in Washington have thrust immigration into the spotlight and made it the most pressing issue in the land? Feb 5, 2014 4:57 PM PT

The Nuclear Option: Meet Preet – Obama's Hatchet Man Against Filmmakers

Meet Preet Bharara, the U.S. prosecutor who last week indicted anti-Obama filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza on campaign finance charges. Mr. Bharara is the snapping jaws of Attorney General Eric H. Holder’s junkyard attack dog and the velvet fixer of President Obama’s thorniest political problems. Jan 31, 2014 8:20 PM PT

The Nuclear Option: Republic to Lose True Public Servant, Sen. Tom Coburn

It is a safe bet that Tom Coburn will not have a big federal building named for him. He is not likely to get a monument erected around here honoring him. He won’t be sitting for an official portrait — striking that generous pose of the longtime, greasy politicians — anytime soon. Jan 25, 2014 6:26 PM PT

The Nuclear Option: The ‘Dangerous, Paranoid Radicals’ of Another Day

They warned against unstoppable encroachment by the federal government and were branded “radicals.” They openly protested and wore funny clothes. They became paranoid and suspected the government was spying on them because of their political beliefs. Fearful of a new tyranny, they invoked the Founding Fathers to demand freedom.

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.
