Jeb Bush: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Waterboy

Allow me to unite America’s left, right and center in just three words: No, Jeb, No. Former GOP Florida governor Jeb Bush made the obvious official this week when he announced on Facebook that he’s “actively exploring” a 2016 White House run. Of course, he’s running. That’s what inveterate politicians do. Well, I hate to…

The Cop-Killing Cult of Larry Davis

In Manhattan’s Union Square last week, a protester wielded a menacing sign. It didn’t make the front page of any newspaper. You didn’t see it on cable news. An appalled bystander sent me a photo of the marcher and his inciteful placard, but didn’t want to be identified in any way. You’ll know why in…

Welcome to TotCare: Obama’s Preschool Takeover

The wheels on the bus go ’round and ’round, just like the endless cycles of big, bad government programs to federalize preschool and daycare. On Wednesday, the White House Summit on Early Education will unveil nearly $1 billion in new “investments” to “expand access to high-quality early childhood education to every child in America” from…

Obama’s Scandal-Tainted BCGB (Best Chicago Golfing Buddy)

In his “Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior,” George Washington offered this sage advice: “Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.” Too bad President Obama and his best Chicago golfing buddy (BCGB), Dr. Eric Whitaker, didn’t heed our Founding…

Nothing on Terry Bean

If real estate mogul and deep-pocketed White House donor Terry Bean were a Republican, he’d be a household name by now. Bean’s face would be splashed all over the covers of grocery-stand newsweeklies. The garrulous hostesses of ABC’s “The View” would be haranguing the GOP to return his campaign contributions. Child-welfare advocates would be demanding…

What Obama’s Ferguson Sermon Left Out

In his 967-word statement to the nation about the Ferguson grand jury decision on Tuesday night, President Obama devoted precisely one sentence to the risks and sacrifices police officers make to keep the peace. One. Obama delivered a tepid, obligatory acknowledgement that “our police officers put their lives on the line for us every single…

The Truth About Obama’s “Temporary” Ebola Amnesty

When it rains, it pours. Just before unveiling his colossal administrative amnesty for millions of “undocumented” aliens and foreign tech workers on Thursday, President Obama separately ordered up to 8,000 more executive pardons and special work passes for Liberians, Sierra Leoneans and Guineans illegally in this country. Strange, isn’t it? The same administration that refused…

A White House Mass Pardon for Identity Thieves

President Obama is poised to show his “compassion” this week by granting work cards to an estimated five million illegal immigrants through an imperial executive order. As for the vast, untold number of law-abiding citizens whose identities have been stolen by foreign law-breakers, two words: Tough luck. Social Security card fraudsters have made out like…
