Hard Data: Jobs Market Unchanged, Analysts Flack for White House

The jobs market is not shifting into high gear, as some analysts have suggested, and the disappointing December jobs report, standing alone, means nothing.

Standing Strong for America in 2014

ObamaCare's Broken Promises, Obama's Broken Second Term

ObamaCare and America's Journey into the Third World
