Horowitz: Obama’s Border Narrative Unraveling

Before Republicans rush to formulate a response to the border crisis, they should first investigate the nature of the border crisis. The narrative percolating into the media from the Obama administration is that we are dealing with a sudden humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied child refugees. The implication of their narrative is that this is akin to a natural disaster that requires an immediate increase in spending to treat the crisis. Now it appears that the entire narrative is based on falsehoods. 22 Jul 2014

GOP Boosts Libertarian 'Spoiler' in Montana

Cook Political Report ranks the race as "Lean GOP," which, considering the source is a fairly bullish indicator.

A deeper look at the poll shows the GOP poised to strike an "own goal," and cede a race critical to the party's hopes of capturing the Senate. 22 Jul 2014

Clash: 4th Circuit Upholds Federal Subsidies for Obamacare

Just hours after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit struck down Obamacare's subsidies on the federal insurance exchange in a 2-1 ruling, the Fourth Circuit upheld the same subsidies 3-0, setting up a near-certain Supreme Court challenge.

Choosing Life over Convenience

As the debate examining prohibiting late term abortions has unfolded, I can't help but think of my youngest grandson who was born a few years ago, weighing only 2 lbs 5 oz at 28 weeks.

A 2-1 panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has reversed a lower court's ruling and invalidated the Internal Revenue Service regulation that provides for insurance subsidies to millions of lower-income Americans using the federal Obamacare exchanges.

President Obama's un-Constitutional practice of lawlessly ignoring and rewriting laws to suit his left-wing political agenda has come back to bite his signature domestic achievement.

Poll: Americans Tuning Out Political Class

A new Politico poll finds 57% of likely voters disapprove of Obama's job performance and essentially split on which party they prefer.

Contrary to his public persona of steadfast support for his wife’s 2016 campaign, a new book claims that a reckless Bill Clinton actually does not want his wife to win the White House and that he sabotaged her 2008 campaign with his disastrous performance in South Carolina — and intends to do it again. 21 Jul 2014
