One thing that I have noted about ex-presidents and ex-vice presidents, especially the liberal ones, is as fond as they are about ragging on the rich, they most definitely use the office they were honored by to make sure that the cash flow never ends after they leave office.
The Kyiv regime's interim Prime Minister, Arseny Yatsenuk, called for an emergency session of the UN Security Council because he claims to have evidence of Russian involvement in a recent pro-Russian ambush of Ukrainian troops.
In hopes of warning people about the dangers of Obamacare, I’ve shared horror stories from the United Kingdom about patients languishing on waiting lists and being left to die. Now, thanks to whistleblowers, we have horror stories from America.
The problem conservatives have with immigration reform has a lot more to do with government incompetence than immigration. Conn Carroll, managing editor for Townhall Magazine, spoke with John about the likelihood of reform over the summer. Oh, and Ezra Klein is still an idiot.
Will Attorney General Eric Holder and the Obama Administration stop at nothing to silence their critics?
Being green isn’t easy, but it’s also not cheap. As it turns out, each Fiat 500e that rolls off the showroom floor costs the company roughly 14k dollars.
Here's the reality: Interest rates are up, prices are up, and affordability is down. Investor demand was a huge portion of the market, and rising suggests investors are more discriminating.
Two years ago, there was a flurry of excitement because some guy named Rex Nutting crunched annual budget numbers and concluded that Barack Obama was the most fiscally conservative President since at least 1980.
While the focus was on bilateral cooperation, the audience was clearly the US and its allies. An unusual confluence of events is driving Russia and China closer together.
Today, we’re going to share more stories of feckless behavior by foreign politicians and bureaucrats.
The big bad startups are running roughshod over the poor innocent regulators who just happen to be interested in crushing Uber and Airbnb into the ground with a boot heal to protect the taxi companies (Uber) and the hotel industry (Airbnb.)
What if the federal government is shameless? What if it personifies the adage of do as I say and not as I do? What if it does the very things it prosecutes others for doing? What if it has written laws and enacted procedures so that it can spy and kill, while it charges others with doing just that?
Detroit is poised to become the next great American city… If we can just avoid repeating some of the city’s past mistakes. Local Detroit entrepreneur, Kyle Bazzy with Benzinga.com, spoke to Michael Schaus about the possibilities of a Detroit renaissance.
As freakishly awesome as the two minutes of mental gymnastics were to watch, they did more to let voters know who she is than any direct answer ever could have done.
The Russians are doing a lot of things, but de-escalation is not one of them...
Credit Suisse pleaded guilty, and agreed to a fine… It seems like the Department of Justice is far more interested in raising some fees than actually holding anyone accountable for all these banking “crimes”. Of course, this isn’t really much of a shock coming from the Obama administration.
While getting a handmade burrito at Chipotle might not seem like a political calculation, apparently (nowadays) it has become such. The Mexican(ish) food chain has announced something similar to a “gun ban” on its properties…
If we look at the Veterans Administration as a microcosmic model of the cradle-to-grave care that Obama is proposing for the rest of us, one can see that there is more at stake than just midterm elections, or one administration.
The included charts post a rather dim view of the recovery since the start of the recession.
"We announce to the world that the Libyan people will never accept their country becoming either a cradle or a host for terrorism, and that, having regained power from the hands which forfeited the trust, they will work so that Libya will, God willing, become a model for peace, stability and liberties…."
I’m beginning to think that people from some nations are smarter and more rational than others. That may explain, for instance, why voters in Estonia support fiscal restraint while voters in France foolishly think the gravy train can continue forever.
Liberals hate big business, corporations, and “monopolies”… Unless, of course, the government is involved. Economist Adam Smith (no… seriously, his name is Adam Smith) joined the program to talk about some major mergers between media giants.
The inconvenient truth President Obama denies about climate change is that China’s refusal to cooperate in international efforts to address the problem makes U.S. efforts to slow its pace futile. Moreover, his policies severely handicap America’s ability to mitigate its consequences.
Who will prove the champion of the little guy and gal? Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) — on deck for her party’s presidential nomination should Hillary Rodham Clinton bow out — has become the political leader of choice for those who advocate Big Government as that champion.
Washington policymakers recently gained access to new tools to aid them in measuring U.S. economic growth that they would be well advised to use.
If there is a steroid for the ego, Obama abuses it. Best baseball player ever? It’s not the most ridiculous honor ever proposed for Obama, especially given his steroid abuse.
Look for center-left and center-right blocs to align, if only for the purpose of stopping the fragmented groups of Eurosceptics from achieving any real power.
If you think the biggest problem is either Obamacare or falling labor force participation, then I have some very grim news that will confirm your fears.
Perhaps this time heads will roll and maybe someone will be brought up on criminal charges for the deaths of 40 or perhaps more people.
This image of wealth is terrible for capitalism at a time when millions — even billions — of people are struggling in this world to survive.
I can tell you one thing that’s an actual fact, and not a myth:were it not for Christianity you and I would likely not even be having this conversation right now.
The ultimate in low-commission trading is $0 per trade, and that model is about to hit the street.
While some may view the penalties leveled at Jones for sharing an opinion as unduly harsh, the NFL believed they were insufficient. As a result, Jones will also be sent to “educational training,” to learn about the merits of the homosexual agenda and become more sensitive to the gay and lesbian lifestyle.
