Scapegoated for ObamaCare Failures, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Resigns

Thursday’s resignation of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is the biggest move yet in President Obama’s effort to rescue his signature government health-insurance plan, and to limit the political impact of the program’s failure.

77 Cents on the Dollar?

President Obama’s repetition of feminist “pay gap” lies — the false claim that women earn only 77 cents for every dollar men earn in the same jobs — has come back to haunt him, Jennifer Rubin says: I’m betting the White House staffer who thought up the equal pay initiative is getting some fairly icy […]

Yes, ObamaCare Kills Jobs

File this under “Not Exactly News.” Anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of basic economics understood that the complex and burdensome system of mandates in ObamaCare would impede job creation. But nothing is true until the “experts” say so, I guess: The Republicans just got a big gift from the Congressional Budget Office: It’s going to […]

‘Hundreds of Thousands of Deportable Aliens’ Released Under Obama Policy

This is truly outrageous: A review of internal ICE metrics for 2013 reveals that hundreds of thousands of deportable aliens who were identified in the interior of the country were released instead of removed under the administration’s sweeping “prosecutorial discretion” guidelines. In 2013, ICE reported 722,000 encounters with potentially deportable aliens, most of whom came […]

Repealing ObamaCare Is Scary To Gutless Progressives Fearing Reform

by Smitty What is different about Republican calls for repeal today — as opposed to calls for repeal from 2010 to the end of 2013 — is that Obamacare is now in place. It exists. Exchanges are running — many of them badly, but running. subsidies are being paid. Insurance companies have changed the way […]

Obama’s Part-Time Proletariat

Victims of Obamanomics: Having worked as a nurse’s aide for 15 years, Ms. McCurdy has been among the nearly 25 million workers in the United States who make less than $10.10 an hour — the amount to which President Obama supports increasing the minimum wage. Of those workers, 3.5 million make the $7.25 federal minimum […]

The Media’s Ukraine Hocus-Pocus

How many times do you have to watch the same magic trick before you start getting wise to the fact that the rabbit was never in the hat to begin with?

Palin Vindicated on Russia, Ukraine: ‘I Could See This One From Alaska’

She who laughs last: Sarah Palin may be having a bragging rights moment. In 2008, when she was the GOP vice presidential nominee, Palin questioned in a speech whether then-Sen. Barack Obama would have the foreign policy credentials to handle a scenario in which Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine. “After the Russian army invaded […]

Obama: OFA ‘Doing God’s Work’

Steven Ertelt of LifeNews noticed that quote from an event last night, and was reminded of when President Obama said “God bless” Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States.
