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 worst | 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 “Apocalypse | 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 just | Read More »

    Cruel September

    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 they left | 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 »

    Cheney Was Right

    Rowan Scarborough has the top story at Human Events today. The CIA’s harsh interrogation techniques saved countless American lives by forcing al Qaeda chieftains to disclose a string of sophisticated terror plots to infiltrate the United States with cold-blooded killers.That fact is established in two documents released Monday by the Justice Department, hours after they released the CIA Inspector General report which Attorney General Holder | Read More »

    Transparent Frauds

    Ted Nugent has a column up at Human Events this morning on the healthcare bill. There is nothing transparent in Washington, D.C. And a lot of people work really hard to make sure of that. The illogical and burdensome laws and regulations produced by the lawyercrats in D.C. are purposefully written to confuse ordinary Americans just so we can’t understand what the lawyercrats are doing | Read More »


    Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today on the Lockerbie Bomber. If only there were a conspiracy to blame, but there isn’t. It would be comforting, in a perverse way, to discover a home video showing Scottish Justice Minister Kenny MacAskill, CIA Director Leon Panetta and the bosses of Yale University Press smoking cigars and playing cards with Muammar Gaddafi.   But | Read More »

    Political History FAIL

    Via RS’s sister site Human Events, it turns out that Speaker Pelosi’s office is working hard to react to yesterday’s strong, principled, and unanimous opposition to the Obama/Pelosi/Reid debt bill. The only problem is, knowledge of political history seems pretty limited in Pelosi’s circles, which is pretty bad since she was in office when the relevant events happened! In other words, she’s wrong, and she’s | Read More »

    ABOARD “Straight Talk Air” (between New York and Miami) — Sen. John McCain would “absolutely” not compromise on Supreme Court nominations if elected and would continue to nominate strict constructionist judges if any of his Supreme Court nominations were defeated by a hostile Senate. McCain said that and much more to HUMAN EVENTS chief political correspondent John Gizzi in an exclusive interview Friday morning. To | Read More »

    BREAKING: House Dems Put “No Drill Energy Plan” in Continuing Resolution

    Human Events has the details. It seems Pelosi is gambling that she can make a deal with the White House. The White House will accept her no energy plan in exchange the White House gets its Wall Street bailout plan. This must be viewed as unacceptable.
