Is Obama Running On Empty?
Since his reelection eight months ago, President Obama has been coasting, and it's showing. His approval ratings are down. His signature legislative accomplishment, Obamacare, is as unpopular as ever. Seeking to regain his footing ahead of some critical budget battles in the months ahead, Obama decided to give yet another speech on the economy.

The Week To Honor Prisoners?
If you are a jihadist who has declared war on Judeo-Christian civilization, and if you have been captured and taken off the battlefield, this may be the week you have been waiting for.
In Iraq, jihadists attacked two prisons, including Abu Ghraib. Official reports indicate that more than two dozen police and soldiers were killed, and dozens more were wounded, in the sophisticated attacks involving car bombs, suicide bombers and rockets.

IRS Scandal Gets Closer To Obama
"What did the president know and when did he know it?" That has been a central question of Washington scandals ever since Tennessee Senator Howard Baker asked it during the Watergate hearings.
The evidence is now overwhelming that the IRS/Tea Party scandal was not the work of rogue agents in a remote field office. And as more evidence points toward White House involvement, Baker's famous question becomes more relevant.

Obama Questions Zimmerman Verdict
Moments ago, President Obama made a surprise appearance at the White House briefing room to address the verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman. It was a long, rambling statement that briefly warned against violence in reaction to the verdict.
The president conceded that the Zimmerman case was unique, and that the problems plaguing young black men in the inner cities are not neighborhood watchmen. Kudos for that.

Scandals Back In The News
The IRS and Benghazi scandals have receded from the headlines in recent weeks, but House Republicans have not forgotten them. And there are major revelations about both scandals today.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing today featuring top IRS officials who testified once again that the targeting of Tea Party organizations, conservative groups and Christian ministries was not the work of a few rogue agents in the IRS's Cincinnati, Ohio, office.

Rolling Stone has set off a firestorm of controversy. The cover of its newest edition features a picture of confessed Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The photo presents Tsarnaev as if he were the latest teen heartthrob.
The magazine's editors are defending their work, claiming it "falls within the traditions of journalism and Rolling Stone's long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day." Many Americans disagree.

Will Holder Persecute George Zimmerman?
The Obama Administration is coming under increasing pressure from left-wing groups to prosecute George Zimmerman on federal hate crimes charges or civil rights violations. But even the Washington Post acknowledges that such charges are unlikely.

The Zimmerman Verdict
There is no denying the tragic nature of the Trayvon Martin case. The confrontation between Martin and George Zimmerman happened over a year ago. Today one young man is dead and the other's chance for a normal life has been destroyed.
Both the Martin and Zimmerman families are Christians. No doubt both were praying for justice for their sons -- a prayer that obviously had to leave one family disappointed.

Will Harry Nuke The Senate?
Just when you think the atmosphere in Washington can't get any worse, Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid is threatening to procedurally blow up the Senate.
Reid has scheduled votes next week on a number of Barack Obama's most controversial nominees. Senate Republicans have been using prolonged debate, or the filibuster, to block these nominations. But now Sen. Reid is threatening to change the Senate's rules unless the GOP backs down.
