African Women Are Africa's Future

Aug 20 2014 10:50am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The Obama administration is pushing for greater U.S. investment in Africa. But the great African summit, held in Washington recently, was largely theater; necessary and important, but still a work of fiction. If you knew nothing about the subject, you might think that U.S. business, in an extraordinary historical oversight, has overlooked opportunity-rich Africa. Actually, America's trade with Africa has bee ...

Monetize Our Military: Our Grandchildren Will Need the Money!

Aug 20 2014 9:59am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

When is an administration going to have the chutzpah to start charging foreign entities, governments, for our military protection? Who is going to pay for the latest round of 'advisors' and 'airstrikes' in Iraq? More sunk costs after the trillion already borrowed and spent?

The Perils of Obama's Vacillating Strategy Toward ISIS

Aug 20 2014 9:21am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Although turmoil in the Middle East long predates President Obama, his strategy of conciliation and retrenchment has made matters considerably worse. Obama remains obtuse to the threat radical Islamists pose: that includes the Shiite theocracy in Iran bent on crossing the nuclear threshold, the virulently anti-American Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, radicals in Libya who attacked the American emba ...

We Need Law and Order, Not Sympathy for Rioters

Aug 19 2014 7:06pm CDT | Source: Big Government

After rioting broke out in the Watts section of Los Angeles in August 1965, concerned Republicans persuaded Ronald Reagan to run for governor on a stern “law and order” platform. The former movie star did exactly that, trouncing California Gov. Pat Brown by 15 percentage points, the biggest prize among the eight governorships that the GOP picked up in 1966. And the Gipper was on his way to the White House. We face a similar moment today. We need more Republicans, like Gov. Chri ...

Time to Put Policy Over Politics

Aug 19 2014 5:24pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

In August 2012, President Obama extended the policy of deferred action (known as DACA) and provided temporary relief from deportation and made available work permits for certain undocumented children and young adults. For many, this has been nothing short of life-changing. DACA children and young adults, also known as DREAMers, epitomize the hopes and aspirations of our young generation. They are driven and many, of those who are eligible to do so, wor ...
