Take the case of ObamaTrade vs. abortion. A handful of Republicans voted against the House … [Read more...]

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 9, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) – When the Supreme Court rules about whether to impose same-sex “marriage” on the entire nation, the House of Representatives will remain mum on the subject.

Why Romney Lost

With the tortured analyses, memoranda, and bluster about why Mitt Romney failed to win the presidency this Tuesday, it may be easier to analyze the reasons he did not lose the election. Mitt Romney did not lose the election on Tuesday because he’s a bad man, an incapable campaigner, or too “severely conservative” on abortion or immigration (or virtually anything else).

Will Obama Go Fascist on the Debt Ceiling?

by Ben Johnson, The White House Watch Barack Obama has sometimes been fond of branding his Republican foes “hostage-takers,” but officials in his administration have found a new hostage in their negotiations over raising the debt ceiling: the U.S. Constitution.

Golfing While the Constitution Burns

by Ben Johnson When Barack Obama and John Boehner played golf this weekend, they played on the same team. How appropriate. Barack Obama has violated the Constitution’s war-making power – reserved by Article I, Section 8, to Congress – from the moment he sent American troops into harm’s way without Congressional approval. He has been violating the War Powers Resolution since at least the … [Read more...]

Wrong Boehner; Obama is Breaking the Law Right Now

by Ben Johnson Only in the liberal media can a weak entreaty to obey the law be considered an act of political warfare. The media have portrayed House Speaker John Boehner’s letter to Barack Obama, merely asking the president for another legal explanation for his war-by-decree in Libya, as “ratcheting up the pressure.” The New York Times correctly noted, “it is not clear if [Boehner’s … [Read more...]

Boehner Wimps Out on Libya

by Ben Johnson The moment would be surreal were it not so reminiscent: An arrogant Democratic president had committed an impeachable offense, lied to the American people, and dared Congress to do anything about it.
