Communist Cuba Has Friends in High Places, Including the DNC

For many years Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Shultz (D-Fla.) has bucked President Obama on U.S.-Cuba policy by voting to maintain the embargo.

Justice Does Not Have a Sell-By Date

When the Communists overran Cuba in 1959, one of the first things they did was murder people who, they believed, stood in their way.

Foreign investment in the United States, access to our financial system, and, especially, immigration are regulated by the federal government for a reason: it is not, and should never be, one big free for all.  For example, foreign investment in the United States is generally a …

Left Stays True to ‘Letting no Crisis Go to Waste’

Nothing better than a terrorist attack to set off the Left. In less than twenty-fours since a radical Islamist slaughtered more than fifty Americans, senior Democrats are playing politics with the matter. Perched at the Blue Goose in the White House press briefing room, the Instigator in Chief ignited another battle in the cultural revolution. Rather than …
