The Nuclear Option: EPA Hypocrites Bully Farmer While Polluting the Potomac

If a man’s home is his castle, then his land is his kingdom. Property boundaries, of course, must be respected, and trespassing across them becomes a legitimate matter of government’s concern. So, too, if you build a huge bonfire that rains toxic ash onto your neighbor’s land. Or hurl water balloons at his house using a giant, rubber-tubing slingshot that requires three people to operate.

The Nuclear Option — John Kerry, The Ridiculous Face of U.S. Diplomacy

With a face like this, is it any wonder we are the laughingstock of the world? To be fair, Secretary of State John Kerry started out at a considerable disadvantage. His long, narrow face — with those sad, sunken eyes — has often been compared to that of a horse; perhaps a starving draft mule retreating with a family from the Dust Bowl during the Great Depression.

The Nuclear Option: Ukraine Exposes Obama’s Unexceptional Axis of Wrong

I certainly understand why freedom-lovers around the world are upset over Russian President Vladimir Putin's recent incursions into Ukraine. And I understand why the good people of Georgia, Estonia and other Democracy-minded countries take exception to this sort of Iron Curtain saber-rattling. But I just cannot understand why it is that President Barack Obama is so upset about it. Mar 6, 2014 6:45 PM PT

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.
