Christmas 1776: A Miracle at Trenton

Christmas of 1776 was not marked with tree lights and presents, but the phrase “Victory or Death” as George Washington and his troops courageously crossed the Delaware River. Knowing that his army may not survive the next campaign season for battle, Washington did what very few would have done – he decided to launch a surprise attack on the Hessians, German mercenary soldiers, who were encamped at Trenton. It was a daring move on Washington’s part as his army, which dwindled from tens of thousands to only a few thousand, was beyond fatigued. They were so ill-equipped that burlap bags were used as makeshift shoes to protect their feet from ...

Shutdown Deal: Christmas Comes Early to Washington and Well-Connected

In what Democrats are calling a concession to Republicans, income verification will be included as part of Obamacare’s exchanges. Here’s why this deal is absolutely ...

Chris Wallace Destroys Administration Talking Point on Obamacare

On Sunday, “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace knocked an Administration talking point out of the proverbial park. In the interview, Wallace asked Lew if the utter failure of the Obamacare exchange website – which was temporarily taken down for repairs, etc. over the weekend – should give the American people doubts, given it has had over three years to get things right. Lew avoided the question, and Wallace followed up by asking “How many signed up?” This led to a most telling dialogue, in which Lew strictly avoided answering the question. He said it was “the wrong question” to ask, then gave excuses about how “when you have a ...

Chris Matthews’ Revisionist History Falls Flat Live

When Ronald Reagan was President, he was hounded by media and Democrat claims of extremism, too conservative, etc. When George W. Bush was President, he was given similar treatment. It’s amazing how things change. Now, liberals occasionally praise Bush for his willingness to work across the aisle, and Reagan is viewed as having been too moderate for today’s GOP. Enter Chris Matthews and the articulate body-slamming he took from Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) on government shutdowns. Matthews, who tried to declare that things got done under Reagan and then-Speaker Tip O’Neill, somehow forgot that twelve shutdowns took place during that era in ...
