Holder’s Witch Hunt
Congressman Dan Burton has the top story at Human Events. Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to prosecute CIA personnel is an outrageous act of political theater that has the potential to significantly damage our nation’s long-term intelligence gathering capabilities. Despite the Administration’s subtle attempts to distance itself from the Justice Department’s investigation, anyone in touch with reality knows that the Attorney General could not pursue | Read More »
Will Chicagoans Finally Get to Lock and Load?
AWR Hawkins has the top story at Human Events today. Down here in West Texas, I keep a handgun in my car and usually one somewhere on my person. My habits are not novel: For I live among people who understand and value our inherent right to keep and bear arms, as well as our right to self-defense. Yet in many parts of the country, | Read More »
Lyndon Baines Obama
Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today on Obama’s plans in Afghanistan.
Canadian Patients Take to Mic To Condemn Socialized Health Care
Jessica Peck Corry has the top story at Human Events today. Sometimes, patriotism can be awkward. Especially when it means admitting to an international TV audience that your nation’s broken health care system forced you onto welfare, into adult diapers, and hobbling with a walker. And all before the age of 30. Embarrassing perhaps, but for Canadian Lin Gilbert, the time had come to share | Read More »
Must Read of the Day: Marco Rubio Taking on the RINOs
From Elisabeth Meinecke: Don’t tell Marco Rubio his primary race for the U.S. senate against Florida Gov. Charlie Crist depends on money or endorsements. Rubio, who finished his term as Florida’s Speaker of the House in 2008, is focused on a much bigger picture: limiting government and thus liberating American entrepreneurship. The impetus behind his campaign is that same wave of conservative outrage which carried | Read More »

Latimer the Liberator?
Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events. f Matt Latimer’s new book had been released a few weeks ago, the Tea Party marchers would have hoisted him onto their shoulders and carried him — laughing and cheering — all the way up Capitol Hill. Laughing, because Latimer’s new book,Speech-less: Tales of a White House Survivor, renews conservatives’ license to chuckle at ourselves. Cheering, | Read More »
Nancy Has No Place in Wayne’s World
Wayne Simmons has the top story at Human Events today. As I reflect back over the 27 years I spent hunting terrorists and those supporting them on virtually every continent in the world, I can’t help but wonder how my case officer would react today if he was alive to watch the Speaker of the House of the Congress of the United States attack and | Read More »
Rangel: The Most Corrupt Democrat?
Ross has the top story and it is a great one this morning at Human Events. First there was “Countrywide Chris” Dodd (D-Conn.), whose combination of poor judgment and possible corruption qualifies him to be Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. Then there was Tim “TurboTax” Geithner, whose false tax return filings qualify him to be Secretary of the Treasury. And now, in keeping with | Read More »
Obamacare Only Healthy for Lawyers
Rowan Scarborough has the top story at Human Events today. Tucked away in the thousands of pages of the Democrats’ health care overhaul bill are a number of gifts to the trial lawyers. Which, by the way, are the Party’s largest financial backers. “America’s Affordable Health Choices Act” establishes new routes by which insurance company employees can sue. It sets up new mandates and regulations | Read More »
Obama’s Anger Weakens Him, and Us
Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today. The anger that seemed President Obama’s central theme in his September 9 speech to Congress was palpable, almost shocking. He demanded action now, and threatened to “call out” those who — he claimed — were spreading falsehoods about his healthcare nationalization plans. Obama does not seem to realize that the fire and brimstone of | Read More »
Obama’s Big Gamble
Connie Hair has the top story at Human Events: If you were expecting something new from President Obama’s speech last night, disappointment abounds. After over six months of hawking nationalized health care, a day of televised interviews broadcast from the White House on a major broadcast network, prime time news conferences, over two dozen speeches around the country and now an address to a joint | Read More »
The RIGHT Alternatives
Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today. He’s looking at conservative alternatives to the Democrats’ healthcare ideas. After a disastrous August recess for the president’s Obamacare plan, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority leader Harry Reid will call Congress back into session today. Did they learn anything during “teachable August”? Apparently not. The national unemployment rate is still rising (exceeding the | Read More »
Ted Nugent has the top story at Human Events. The problem with being host to the United Nations is that it attracts many of the world’s thugs, punks and dictators like flies to a summertime barbecue left out too long. And when the U.N. General Assembly convenes on September 23, we’ll again be treated to a parade of the worst of the worst, ranging from | Read More »
Olbermann’s Political Football
A.W.R. Hawkins takes on Keith Olbermann at Human Events today. When it comes to unabashed political vitriol, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, host of “Countdown with Keith Olbermann,” is without peer. In the past few months alone, he referred to Sarah Palin as “a clear and present danger to the safety and security of this nation,” said Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly “voluntarily [associates] himself with and [encourages]” | Read More »
‘Special Relationship’ Now Iran and North Korea, Not U.S. and Britain
Clare M. Lopez has the top story at Human Events today. Across the Atlantic, the “special relationship” meant the American-British alliance, the core of the alliance that defeated Hitler in a hot war and the Soviet Union in a cold one. But now the “special relationship” is between Iran and North Korea, the two nations which prove daily that the “axis of evil” idea wasn’t | Read More »
Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today. T.S. Eliot wrote that April is the cruelest month, because it mixes hope with desire. For Democrats, April was easy, washed away in the Obama spending tsunami. September will be the cruelest month for Democrats because their hope to pass Obamacare and cap-and-trade has run headlong into the opposition of their untrusting constituents. Just as | Read More »
ObamaCare: The Only Exit Strategy
Charles Krauthammer has the top story at Human Events today. Obamacare Version 1.0 is dead. The 1,000-page monstrosity that emerged in various editions from Congress was done in by widespread national revulsion not just at its expense and intrusiveness but at the mendacity with which it is being sold. You don’t need a Ph.D. to see that the promise to expand coverage and reduce costs | Read More »
Britain Succumbing to Islamic Supremacism
Robert Spencer has the top story at Human Events today. Britain is sinking fast, and in too many ways its government is its people’s worst enemy. Jihadists struck London on July 7, 2005 and Glasgow on June 29, 2007, and many still operate in Britain — but how bad is it now? To begin finding out, I spent the last week in London, visiting mosques | Read More »
