Nobel Peace Prize Winner Unwilling To Explain When It's Ok To Kill Americans

“What did I win mine for?” Obama asked of his Nobel Peace Prize recently. Good question, Mr. President. Sen. Ron Wyden has spent two years demanding that the Obama administration share its legal opinions justifying the targeted assassinations of suspected American terrorists abroad.

Obama Administration's "Compromise" On Contraception Mandate Is No Compromise At All

With several lawsuits challenging the mandate stalled awaiting the White House’s clarification of how they’ll apply a contraception coverage mandate to faith-based employers, the Obama administration announced today a “compromise” which doesn’t really seem like a compromise at all.

Guest Post: NDSU Planned Parenthood Funding About Politics Not Science

Jane Ahlin takes great liberties with the word “scientific” in her Fargo Forum column published January 19, 2013.

Obama To Propose Assault Weapons Ban, Magazine Limits This Week

Only In Washington Does "Raise The Debt Ceiling" Mean "Paying The Bills"

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney thinks Congress ought to “pay it’s bills” by raising the debt ceiling: “There are only two options to deal with the debt limit: Congress can pay its bills, or it can fail to act and put the nation into default,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a

White House: Mandated Diversity For You, But Not For Us

Responding to criticism of cabinet picks that have been male-heavy, White House mouthpiece Jay Carney said that while the White House likes the concept of diversity in their pool of potential candidates, ultimately they decide based on who the best candidate is: DAN LOTHIAN, CNN: I know you touched on this a little bit yesterday,
