  • Michele Bachmann Joins Minnesota’s Deception on Term Limits
    Rep. Bachmann cited “term limits” as a reason for not running for reelection. My research showed that she did not sign the U.S. Term Limits pledge in 2010 or 2012. Additional research showed she opposed term limits in 2011.
  • Southeast Atlanta Neighborhood No. 9 on Most Dangerous List
    Southeast Atlanta was named one of the ten most dangerous neighborhoods in America. But the region does have hope for the future, thanks to a fortunate location, coming attractions, and a recovery plan.

  • Why Didn’t Obama’s Approval Ratings Fall? Blame Birthers
    For years, conservatives latched onto nearly anything that would discredit Obama or lead to his ouster, from birth certificate issues to conspiracy theories. Maybe that’s why polls showed the public isn’t caring so much about real scandals.
  • Are Professor Salaries the Reason College is so Expensive?
    The high cost of a college education is garnering a lot of attention. But faculty salaries don’t account for that increase. Faculty salaries only increased by the rate of inflation last year and that was the first time in several years that they did so.
  • How Obama is like Reagan, but Not in a Good Way
    Obama is a lot like Ronald Reagan with his aloof, hands-off management style, focusing on being a legislator-in-chief. And it’s going to haunt him over Benghazi, the IRS, and AP scandals the way it hurt Reagan in the Iran-Contra scandal.
  • The IRS-Tea Party Scandal Could Learn from Ralph Nader
    The Tea Party had been on the ropes after poor performances in several 2010 and 2012 elections. But the IRS investigations will give the group new life. Believe it or not, GM’s harassment of Ralph Nader had the same effect in the 1960s.
  • Sure Wish 9-11 was Investigated as Well as Benghazi
    It is heartening to see the tragedy of 9/11/12 in Benghazi gets fully investigated. It’s just too bad that the disaster of 9/11/01 wasn’t investigated as aggressively as the Libya deaths are being probed.
  • Five Myths of the United States-Mexican War
    Few wars are as obscure as the one that started on May 13, 1846. That’s when President Polk responded to the Mexican invasion of Texas with a declaration of war. Here are five myths about the start and conclusion of the war, and three in between.
  • How the GOP 2016 Primary Looks like “The Game of Thrones”

  • Gabriel Gomez Could Really Win the Massachusetts Senate Race
    Back in February of 2013, I predicted Gabriel Gomez would win the nomination for Republicans in the Massachusetts Senate race. Here are three reasons why he’ll beat longtime Democratic Rep. Ed Markey in June.

  • Removing Rebels from Stone Mountain is the Real Lost Cause
    Change.org has circulated a petition to try and remove the Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson carving from Stone Mountain. A better idea would be to let visitors know how Lee and Jackson really felt about slavery.
  • Will Having a Birther Movement Hurt Ted Cruz in 2016?

  • Congress Wants the Abrams, but the Army Says 'No Tanks'
    There’s a reason that there’s a huge bloated Pentagon budget, and it really doesn’t involve the Pentagon. It’s about Congress and the private sector pushing for products the government doesn’t want or need.

    As bad as Mark Sanford has been for the GOP brand in South Carolina, there is a worse Democrat candidate. Former New York City Rep. Anthony Weiner, best known for “sexting,” is running for mayor.
  • Now that Baucus Has Retired, Will Democrats Lose the Senate?
    Sen. Baucus, a Democrat first elected in 1978, has called it quits. Could Republicans, who won the state in the presidential race by a dozen percentage points, take a Senate seat away from the Democratic Party column?
  • Georgia Republicans are 'Akin' to Lose a Senate Seat
    The tea party has helped provide more extreme nominees and eliminated electable moderates, in 2010 and 2012. That nightmare scenario seems likely to play itself out again in 2014 in Georgia.
  • Do Conspiracy Theorists Help Boston Terrorists?
    Conspiracy theories have become a way of life after tragedies like 9/11 and shootings at Aurora and Sandy Hook. Now, these conspiracy theorists could well be adopted as the legal defense given by the surviving Boston bomber.
  • Capitalist Obama vs. Communist GOP Representatives
    The GOP has always told us that government is the problem. But they sure aren’t acting like it as they’ve blocked Obama’s attempts to close little-used post offices, end Saturday service, and privatize the TVA. They feel government is the solution.
  • Can a Family Scion Retake 'FSU District' for Florida Dems?
    In 2014, Democrats are going to have to either hold some seat or win some new ones in red and purple states. And they are relying upon family names to do the trick. The latest case is a former Senator’s daughter in Florida.
  • Conspiracy Theorists, Elvis Impersonators and Ricin Letters
    After each terror attack or spree shooting, we’re told the government was behind it, leading more people to plan using violence to kill, to keep the government from killing them. These new attacks provide fodder for future conspiracy theories.

    Years ago, the notion of Republicans picking someone with such a short tenure in office like Sen. Ted Cruz was unthinkable. But, having noted recent Democratic Party successes with nominees, the GOP may rethink that idea.
  • U.S. and China Could Use World War II Lessons for North Korea

  • The Reason Scott Brown Passed on Massachusetts Special Election

    A slew of studies come out around April 15 every year to remind us how we have a much lower tax burden than other countries have, but is that really the case. It depends on whether you are a corporation or a personal income taxpayer.
  • “The Democrat Went Down to Georgia…”
    With all the focus on how many Senate seats the Republicans might take from Democrats in 2016, the Democrats could swipe one in the GOP’s backyard, if early polls are any indication. And that could take place in Georgia.
  • Another Hispanic Republican to Make History?
    After 2010, Republicans appealed to harsh anti-illegal immigration laws instead of the Hispanic Republicans who were so successful in 2010, and paid for it in 2012. But Abel Maldonado may give the GOP a chance in 2014 in California.

  • How Would Female Presidential Candidates Fare in 2016?

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s plan to eliminate sugary drinks in New York City got a lot of press, and a legal setback. South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s plan to stop obesity through food stamps may be a better plan.

  • If the Media is an Addict, Jeb Bush is the Dealer
    Jeb Bush wrote a book on immigration, went on all the talk shows, said he was open to running for president, then called the media “addicts” for being obsessed with the 2016 elections. What does that make Jeb?

  • How a Retiring Democrat Senator May Save a GOP Governor

  • Three Options for GOP Governors on Obamacare’s Exchanges
    GOP Governors can cave on Obamacare’s Medicaid Exchanges, oppose them, or use them as a bargaining chip in negotiations with Democrats. Gov. McDonnell tried the third option, with positive results.
  • Investigating the Conservatives’ New Hero: Calvin Coolidge
    Not content with just Ronald Reagan, conservatives have sought to glorify Calvin Coolidge as a model of what a president should be. After reading the record, they may rethink that notion.
  • A Civil War Strategy the Republicans Shouldn’t Try
    On the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, a new one is brewing in Virginia. It pits Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli against Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling of the GOP. Democrats could win the Virginia Governor race.
  • Does Georgia’s Gun Bill Help the Mentally Ill Get a Gun?
