    Friday’s dismal jobs report and some unexpected words from Bill Clinton delivered a bracing reminder to President Obama and his advisers that the election remains primarily a referendum on his record and that their path to victory may lie less in trying to discredit Republican Mitt Romney and more in winning a battle of ideas with their Republican rival. The latest report — just 69,000 jobs were added last month — was far worse than forecasters had predicted and undermined the administration’s contention that the economy is truly on a path to recovery.

Holder calls voter ID laws “unnecessary” and says voter fraud “doesn’t exist,” but new video proof in his own voting precinct proves otherwise. Obama’s administration says they’re against voter ID laws because they are valiantly trying to keep minorities and the poor from being unfairly discriminated against.

Disputing assertions by Barack Obama, the president, and Janet Napolitano, head of Homeland Security, that the border is "safer than it's been in years," Taylor was blunt in his disagreement: "It's more dangerous than I've seen in my 26 years in the Border Patrol."

    “The White House doesn’t create jobs,” President Obama’s spokesman, Jay Carney, said last week. He’s more right than he knows. The policies the administration and Congress put into place have a profound effect on job creation - a profoundly negative one. Gimmicks like tax credits for hiring veterans and another short-term extension of the payroll tax cut aren’t going to jump-start the sagging economy or do anything to get the unemployment rate below even 9 percent, let alone anything approaching the 5 or 6 percent levels that would be considered full employment.

    The unemployment rate is officially at 9 percent. In addition, a broad measure of unemployment – including workers who want a job but have stopped looking and those working part time for economic reasons – rose to 19.3 percent. This is very grim. Let's put this into its proper perspective because a 9 percent unemployment rate doesn't really sink in. What if there were a breaking newsflash on TV while you were watching "American Idol," and the headline was "Everyone in Utah is now unemployed!" You would look at your spouse and say, "Oh wow!

    President Obama recently said that the economic situation was worse than the administration expected when he took office. That's code for "blame Bush" again for Obama's failed economic policies, which have not stimulated the economy. He has chastised the business sector for sitting on more than $2 trillion in accumulated cash instead of hiring people they do not need. That's blaming the business sector for not making stupid decisions to prop up his failed policies. And now that people are feeling the pain at the pump, he blames oil speculators for high gas prices, which are now double what they...

    President Obama swore an oath to "... preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States." He should have sworn to obey it. Congress, alone, has the power to declare war, and to make all the laws necessary to engage in military conflict. The War Powers Act defines precisely what is required of the president before military action may commence. Obama launched 118 missiles and dropped 40 bombs on Libya without a thought about Congress or the Constitution. He was quite concerned, however, about the United Nations. He hardly noticed the attacks on protesters until the United Nations Security...

    The mayhem in Madison, Wis., over the last two weeks has highlighted the determination of organized labor unions to continue to restrict workers rights, and to try to intimidate Gov. Scott Walker and the taxpayers into some more unsustainable demands. Choosing to join a union in one thing. Being forced to do so as a condition of employment is a restriction on a worker's rights. Joining a union or any other organization should be an individual's choice. And the desire of the unions to continue to make unsustainable demands on local, state and federal government, irrespective of the devastating financial...

    "Happy Birthday, Ronnie." Those were the words delivered by an 89-year-old Nancy Reagan Sunday under the din of a standing ovation during the 100th birthday celebration of her late husband, Ronald Reagan, the nation's 40th president and an enduring beacon for conservative thinkers. With a strong voice though ever-slight in frame, Nancy Reagan looked strong as she appeared in a red pantsuit and thanked the invitation-only audience at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Library, which has held a weekend-long celebration of the late president's 100th birthday.

    In hopes of returning to a previous, "better" condition, millions of Americans will resolve to: quit smoking, lose weight, or engage in some other activity to make their life better in some way. Suppose there were an activity in which Americans could engage that would make the entire world better, especially that portion of the world we call the United States of America. There is! We can resolve to restore the original, unique republic created by our founders. George Washington, Ben Franklin, James Madison and the handful of other great Americans who assembled in Philadelphia in the summer of 1787...

    Despite the Federal Reserve’s announcement last month of a new round of quantitative easing to help unemployment, the national unemployment rate increased to 9.8 percent in November. Indiana’s Rep. Mike Pence, in light of the Fed’s announcement, is promoting a different solution: simplify the Fed’s job so that it doesn’t have to worry about employment. Pence was among the first to express concerns about the Fed’s employment mandate when news broke last month that the federal government would participate in a U.S. Treasury security-buy, known as quantitative easing.

    Congressional leaders of both parties suggested Sunday that they could reach a deal to extend all Bush-era tax rates as early as this week and that it would include an agreement by Republicans to also extend unemployment benefits for millions of jobless Americans. "I think that most folks believe that the recipe would include at least an extension of unemployment benefits for those who are unemployed and an extension of all of the tax rates for all Americans for some period of time," said Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl, Arizona Republican. "I think an agreement could be reached in the...

    As the nation agonizes with high unemployment, the lame duck Senate Democrats play class warfare games. Yesterday, in an unusual Saturday session, the Senate refused to go along with a scheme to target tax hikes on employers -- economic insanity -- with four Democrats and one independent joining in a Republican filibuster of a scheme to raise taxes on those families earning over $250,000

    “By prosecuting Ahmed Ghailani in federal court,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a May 21, 2009, statement, “we will ensure that he finally answers for his alleged role in the bombing of our embassies in Tanzania and Kenya.” “This administration,” Holder continued, “is committed to keeping the American people safe and upholding the rule of law, and by closing Guantánamo and bringing terrorists housed there to justice we will make our nation stronger and safer.”

    Two days before the jury at the embassy bombing trial of Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani would reach a verdict, it seemed to be on the verge of a deadlock. A juror sent a note to the judge on Monday asking to be excused. Her decision, she wrote, was “not going to change” and she was being attacked for it by the other jurors at the trial of Mr. Ghailani, the first former Guantánamo detainee to be tried in a civilian court by the Obama administration.

    In a May 2009 speech, President Barack Obama announced that Ahmed Ghailani, a Guantanamo detainee suspected of involvement in the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, would be transferred to the United States for trial in federal court. The president assured his audience that civilian courts were “tough enough” to prosecute terrorists like Ghailani and that justice would be served.
