    Mining Cole for Answers on IRS

    In two weeks, the Senate will be taking a long break -- from what, no one really knows. Thanks to Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), the chamber has been in perpetual siesta, only stirrings from their slumber just long enough to stage a meaningless crusade for “free” birth control, which most women already have. Unfortunately for the ... (more)

    Reid's Dem-agogues Lose Phony War for Votes

    Forget birth control. America needs border control! But that’s not something the nation is likely to get from this Senate, whose leaders are too busy chasing women’s votes to put out the real fires over immigration, the economy, or the Middle East. Of course, the greatest irony of this contraception push is that liberals thought it ... (more)

    SCOTUS Polls Its Weight on Mandate

    The Supreme Court's mandate ruling isn't getting rave reviews from liberals, but voters certainly approve. Based on the latest Gallup numbers, the firestorm over birth control is pretty well contained to Democratic Cloakroom on Capitol Hill, where liberal leaders desperately -- and apparently, ineffectively -- fan the flames. After the justices ... (more)

    The Senate's Weapons of Mass Distraction

    There are just three weeks on the legislative calendar before November, and Democrats plan to spend all of them fixing the nonexistent "crisis of contraception." The world is literally falling to pieces, along with the U.S. economy, and liberals think we're obsessed with social issues? Democratic liberals think the future of the free world hinges ... (more)

    Senate Gets Blunt about Religious Liberty

    Most conservatives can probably count on one hand the number of times a Republican bill has gotten 100% Democratic support. Yesterday was one of those rare moments, as Senators on both sides of the aisle embraced Sen. Roy Blunt's (R-Mo.) bill to protect religious liberty abroad. While Iraq, Syria, and Egypt explode in faith-based turmoil, the ... (more)

    Obama's Banned Aid for Hurting Kids

    The President won't lock down the border, but he has no problem locking out the church. With reports of over 50,000 unaccompanied minors having already crossed the border, a number which is estimated to climb to 90,000, it appears the only ones unwelcome in America are Christian pastors and their churches. Like a lot of nearby congregations in ... (more)

    American Idle: Reid Competes for Most Futile Senate Ever

    Being the "greatest deliberative body" in the world usually implies that you've done some deliberating. Not so for the U.S. Senate. While the Middle East, southern border, and economy implode, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) seems perfectly content to coast along in the sea of futility. Occasionally, he'll drop anchor -- but just long enough to push a ... (more)

    Obama's Immigration Fix Borders on Absurdity

    After six years of leaving America's borders wide open, a flood of migrant children are putting a face on the immigration crisis. Fifty-two thousand faces, to be exact. While kids from Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala stream across the border illegally, the holes aren't just apparent in our fences, but in the administration's agenda. For ... (more)

    For Wheaton, a Supremely Gratifying Decision

    The Supreme Court's term may be over, but the debate certainly isn't. Four days after hanging up their robes for the summer, the justices made another splash on the HHS mandate -- this time, taking a bite out of the President's outrageous "compromise." Last year, when the backlash over the mandate was too much for the White House to handle, the ... (more)

    The Declaration's Self-Evident Truths

    By FRC Senior Fellow Bob Morrison The enemy fleet was nearing Philadelphia. Many delegates to the Continental Congress knew that if they were arrested, they would be tried for treason against the British Crown. The punishment for treason was hanging, drawing and quartering. Massachusetts' Samuel Adams was not afraid. He moved that the ... (more)
