Why Washington Can’t Stop

In terms of advanced and unchallenged military power, there has been nothing like the U.S. armed forces since the Mongols swept across Eurasia. No wonder American presidents now regularly use phrases like “the finest fighting force the world has ever known” to describe it.

Merkel Reportedly Livid About Suspected NSA Surveillance

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is pretty peeved at President Obama over allegations that the National Security Agency has been monitoring her cellphone. Although the White House denies these actions, German intelligence investigators believe Merkel has reason to be upset.

What Was ‘Essential’ and What Wasn’t

The opinion polls were clear. One after another, they showed that Americans opposed the shutdown and were hurting because of it. Nearly one in three said they felt personally affected not by too much government, but by too little.

Not a Good Fight

President Obama’s victory this week was as complete and devastating as Sherman’s march through the South. But there is no early sign that the zealots of the anti-government far right have learned the lessons of their defeat—which means that more battles lie ahead.

Fossil Fuel Euphoria

For years, energy analysts had been anticipating an imminent decline in global oil supplies. Suddenly they’re singing a new song, and the expected boost in energy is predicted to provide the United States with a cornucopia of economic and political rewards, including industrial expansion at home and enhanced geopolitical clout abroad.

House GOP, News Media Fail to Inform American Public on Budget Deficit

There are two national deficits, and both are in good if not excellent condition. Every day that the House has debated the public debt limit, President Barack Obama has cited this fact. No opponent pays any attention.

One wonders if the Obama administration’s increasing hostility toward reporters, editors and publishers may frighten members of the traditional press—who eschew any and all claims to activism—into becoming the open campaigners for public welfare that their fellow citizens need them to be.
