On April 27, liberals on the House Armed Services Committee attached an amendment to the 2017 Defense Authorization Act that would require our young women age 18-26 to be subject to the draft should we face a real war and an all-volunteer force prove inadequate.
Due to some smart maneuvering by Pete Sessions (R-TX), the chairman of the House Rules Committee, that amendment was stripped from the House bill, but now the Senate Armed Services Committee has adopted it. The upper chamber will soon vote on the measure and it’s likely to pass, barring a huge public outcry. Read the rest of this entry »

- Pack the Supreme Court with ideologues who ignore the Constitution
- Dumb down public education

Russia’s President Vladimer Putin is hot, red hot.
United States’ president Brack Obama is cold, stone cold.
After Russia’s takeover of Crimea, Putin is more popular than ever in the motherland. After Obama’s capitulation, his poll numbers are at an all-time low.
The buff, bare-chested Putin, a former martial arts master and K.G.B. colonel, has attained rock-star status. Meanwhile, his lanky American counterpart, the former community organizer and pick-up basketball player, looks weak and strangely out of place in a world where the strong survive and the weak get trampled.

Barack Obama is fighting for his political life, embroiled in three scandals: the criminal use of the IRS, using the Justice Department to spy on reporters and the cover-up of the attack in Benghazi.
