How to Solve the IRS Scandal in Two Weeks
According to the latest Rasmussen poll, the IRS scandal is still very much on the minds of Americans and still considered to be the worst scandal of the Obama administration. I am one of the IRS scandal's victims. Based on the details of my case, I believe I was targeted for persecution on direct orders of the Obama White House. I don’t think that’s much of a stretch considering the IRS Chief visited the White House 157 times in Obama's first term, and Obama himself met with the head of the IRS employees union the day before the targeting started. But, there’s no reason to debate and argue anymore. This can be easily settled. The solution is simple: All we have to do is pull the file of every taxpayer audited by the IRS in the first 4 years of Barack Obama's Presidency. Then simply match the audits with publicly available political registration information. Wanna bet that Republicans were audited at a far higher rate than those registered Democrat? [more...]
An Immigration Policy that is Way More Effective, Simpler, and Less Expensive
The House of Representatives is now considering the Senate's recently passed "Gang of 8" 1,200-page immigration bill. It offers amnesty to the U.S.'s 11.5 million illegal immigrants and clears their path to citizenship and entitlement eligibility. My recently released volume, Uncommon Sense, proposes solutions to modern political conundrums based on ancient Jewish wisdom, and it contains a chapter on immigration. It makes the point that immigrants can be very good for the U.S. economy. These people tend to be hard-working and entrepreneurial and they take many jobs that Americans are unwilling to do. It also advocates bending over backwards to attract highly educated immigrants such as foreigners studying in American universities who are here on temporary student visas. Here is a synopsis of the book’s main positions on illegal immigrants.
FBI's Most-Wanted Ads Blocked by Muslim Brotherhood Group
By Ryan Mauro
The U.S. government has long offered rewards for its most wanted terrorists as a way of incentivizing people to be on the lookout. Its success obviously relies upon widespread knowledge of the award and what the terrorists look like. For the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, the fact that Americans would become aware that a majority of the most-wanted terrorists are Islamic extremists compelled it to take action. As usual, CAIR cried "Islamophobia," deployed its interfaith partners and was successful in having the most-wanted terrorist ads taken down. [more...]
Is President Obama Weakening American Influence and Prestige?
Is Egypt yet another sign of the decline of American power during the Obama Presidency? Is President Obama’s lack of leadership weakening American influence and prestige? And what are the political effects of the sudden one-year delay in the ObamaCare employer mandate? What should the GOP response to this be? [more...]
The Senate Immigration Law Hurts All Americans
By Dave Bego
Recently, I had the opportunity to view Dennis Michael Lynch’s documentaries They Come to America. In part, the documentaries explore the pending immigration legislation proposed by the "Gang of Eight," and finds that the legislation fails to fix the most basic problem - securing the border between the U.S. and Mexico. Despite claims by the current administration that the border is secure, the documentary shows the continuing consequences to national security, the American economy, our out of control debt, and desperately needed jobs for the American people.

Senator McCain's Arab Spring Syndrome
By Joseph Klein
Senator John McCain is suffering from the Arab Spring Syndrome. He remains convinced that democracy will flower in places like Syria and Egypt if given a chance. He evidently believes that Islamists can be persuaded to fully participate in the electoral process and accept the will of the people. In the words of Bruce S. Thornton, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, "McCain has a naive faith in the magic powers of 'democracy' to change a culture steeped in 14 centuries of religious intolerance, supremacism, and violence."
