The US-China Climate Change Deal Is Terrible; Fortunately, It Doesn’t Matter

At a Beijing news conference, President Barack Obama called a new China-United States climate deal a “historic agreement.” Grist assures us that the “new U.S.-China climate deal is a game

Obama Finally Identifies the Middle East’s Biggest Problem — Israel

The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg has written a piece detailing the deteriorating relationship between Israel and the Obama administration. The chief purpose of Goldberg’s piece is to humiliate Benjamin Netanyahu. None

Actually, Senators, You’re the Ones Who Threaten the Country

We are, as it always seems, “at a pivotal moment in American history.” At least that’s what Sens. Tom Udall and Bernie Sanders maintained in a melodramatic Politico op-ed last

Are Republicans Abandoning the Obamacare Issue? Doubtful

In a bit of dubious cherry-picking, a new Bloomberg article concludes that the Affordable Care Act is losing its effectiveness as a political issue for Republicans and is diminishing as a major issue. How do we know the end is near-ish? Well, so many Americans are “benefiting from the law,” theorizes Heidi Przybyla, that political ads are simply not doing the job anymore.… CLICK HERE to Read more…

Have You Taken Your Obama Oath?

Jonathan Alter at The Daily Beast has an idea that will infuse the president’s “economic patriotism” rhetoric with some bite: Compel companies to take “loyalty oaths” to prove their patriotism.
You may find this suggestion a little creepy, maybe even a little fascistic; but Alter says that “it’s time for red-blooded Americans to take matters into our own hands.”

And by taking the matter into “our” hands, Alter means that President Barack Obama would unilaterally bar any company that practices “inversion” — corporate merging with foreign firms to save on U.S.… CLICK HERE to Read more…

Seriously, What Is John Kerry Doing?

Let’s concede for a moment that most of us don’t believe the United States should be taking sides in conflicts abroad. Even so, most Americans would probably agree that at a minimum, our diplomatic efforts should not cause unnecessary harm. Which brings me to Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent misadventure in the Middle East.

It seems like a rather big deal that Egypt, Israel, Fatah, Jordan, Saudi Arabia — ostensibly all allies of ours — agree on something.… CLICK HERE to Read more…

Are Teachers Underpaid? Let’s Find Out

A teacher in South Dakota with a bachelor’s degree and 10 years of experience earns $33,600 per year, which is less than the average auto repair worker. This grievance against salary injustice is nothing new, of course, but this particular example comes to us from a new national study by the Center for American Progress, which details the chicken feed teachers are forced to subsist on as they altruistically keep your hopeless children literate.… CLICK HERE to Read more…

How Obama Questions Your Patriotism

So Barack Obama is again using one of the most contemptible phrases in American politics — “economic patriotism.”
There are many credible reasons to despise this rhetorical construct. Patriotism, after all, is the attachment to one’s homeland, a nationalistic devotion to one’s country and the values that make it great. If a person not only resists things that are “patriotic” but opposes them, then logic dictates that the person is being unpatriotic.… CLICK HERE to Read more…

Actually, Hillary’s Wealth Is Her Greatest Accomplishment

It’s simply mystifying that so many Americans look to candidates who pretend to be just like them. We’re the worst. In the rare instance I am moved to vote, the least I expect is for a candidate to be far more successful than I am.

This last hurdle is not particularly challenging, mind you. Which brings me to Hillary Clinton, whose clumsy efforts to convince America that she’s a commoner not only are transparently silly but intentionally discount her most impressive gift: the ability to persuade rational people to pony up …

It’s Not Surprising More Americans Believe Freedom Is Overrated

A new Gallup poll finds that fewer Americans are satisfied with the freedom in their lives compared with seven years ago — dropping 12 percentage points, from 91 percent in 2006 to 79 percent in 2013. During that same time, the percentage of Americans dissatisfied with the freedoms available in their lives more than doubled, from 9 percent to 21 percent.… CLICK HERE to Read more…
