Can it get much worse for Obama? With the stock market in free fall, Ebola making its way to the United States, ISIS sitting an hour outside of Baghdad, and Obamacare premium increases leaking out before the election, it's hard to see how things could get worse for the president. But they can, and they will.
To start with, Wall Street isn't done crashing. Prescient observers have been predicting a crash out of proportion to any we have ever seen. Now their warnings are beginning to come true. The Dow has lost about 1,000 points -- or 6 percent of its value -- in the past week. Some experts are predicting a crash down to 5,000 with stocks losing more than two-thirds of their...

Free at last! I'm silent no more. Now, the story can be told.
Democrats here in my adopted state of Colorado did not want the new political documentary I hosted to see the light of day. They lost. This week, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an emergency injunction declaring that our movie deserved the same free-speech rights as a "traditional" (translation: old-guard liberal) news organization.

Failing to persuade voters to support their discredited agenda, Democrats are now determined to use a false flag strategy to advance in stealth to steal a Senate majority. Masquerading as independents in four key Senate races, Democratic candidates are embracing a wolf-in-sheep's-clothing tactic to fool voters into believing that they are not the party hack/rubber stamps they truly are. By pretending that they are Independents, they can take power and help Obama implement his plan to create a one-party government in the U.S.
Were these "Independent" Democrats true Independents, their presence in our national politics would be welcome. But they are not. If elected, they would each... Read More (Opens In A New Tab)

The Democrats are already facing substantial headwinds in this year's midterm elections: they are defending 21 of 37 Senate seats up this year, President Obama is a drag on the ticket with overall popularity hovering around 40 percent, things seem to be falling apart in the Middle East, and the economy continues to grow at a tepid pace, buoyed up to now by a record-breaking stock market. Election forecasters have conceded the House of Representatives to the Republicans and are giving Republicans very good odds of capturing the Senate.
Now, in the last two weeks the stock market has undergone... Read More (Opens In A New Tab)
