    Andy Puzder is CEO of CKE Restaurants, Inc., which employs about 21,000 people at Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s restaurants. He is co-author of “Job Creation: How it Really Works and Why the Government Doesn’t Understand it.” Puzder serves as co-chair of the American Freedom and Enterprise Foundation. While the unemployment numbers for June contained some positive news, the coverage to date has obscured the continuing negative trends and ObamaCare’s increasing impact. It’s time to take a realistic look at how the fragility of our economy and the specter of big government are restricting both growth and job creation. The actual...

    Untangling ourselves from entitlements will restore our solvency and our spirit. America’s financial situation is precarious. Over the past eight years our national debt has doubled to $14.5 trillion, and our total unfunded liabilities now exceed an astonishing $114 trillion. That’s $1,115,000 per federal income taxpayer. Even the most unrepentant spendthrift understands that these debts and liabilities are unsupportable, nor can they be solved by immorally targeting the rich. Instead, we must enact immediate, across-the-board spending cuts, with special emphasis on the biggest components of our financial wreck: Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. These entitlement programs constitute the majority of...

    BOSTON FUNDRAISER: ________________________ ________________________ - President Obama addressed a group of 152 Democratic donors at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The walls were lined with enormous original oil portraits from the 16th century and guests are seated around about 24 round tables. Obama was introduced by Rep. Ed Markey, who called Obama the “true fulfillment” of JFK and Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream for America. In welcoming Nancy Pelosi, Obama called her “someone who’s going to go down as one of the greatest Speakers in our history: Nancy Pelosi.” “When the rubble had cleared, when the dust...

    A conservative media watchdog organization is demanding that the media reports President Obama's "lies, distortions, and exaggerations" delivered in his speech on healthcare reform Wednesday night. The Media Research Center says President Barack Obama will not stop committing what it calls "serial dishonesty with the American people until the media expose his false figures and bogus exaggerations for what they are: fraudulent scare tactics." The group describes the president's Wednesday night speech about healthcare as "a litany of lies." Listening to a liar: Part II (related commentary) Rich Noyes, director of research at the MRC, says The Associated Press did...

    The healthcare reform bill puts taxpayers in the position of paying for abortions. The House version of H.R. 3200 would drastically change long-standing federal policy, according to Susan Muskett, senior legislative counsel at the National Right to Life Committee. "It creates a nationwide insurance plan run by the federal government that is explicitly authorized to cover all abortions," she explains. "The federal government would be running a nationwide abortion plan." Muskett says apparently there would be no abortions barred. "Abortionists would submit bills to the federal insurance plan and receive checks from the federal agency," she adds. "The federal government...

    A Christian legal society is sending Barack Obama a message concerning his planned school address: "Mr. President, cease and desist." Liberty Counsel founder Matt Staver tells OneNewsNow that the Department of Education [DOE] is engaging in illegal activity in the dispersing of educational material that will accompany President Obama's address to school children. He says it does not matter what Obama talks about because according to U.S. Code 20, Section 3403, the Secretary of Education, or any officer, is forbidden to engage in "any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction, administration, or personnel of any educational...

    Behind the tumult of ObamaCare and attempts to hold America’s children hostage to indoctrination at their first day back at school this year, history is being rewritten by Barack Hussein Obama and his Shadow Government of Czars. Will historians someday record September 2009 as “September’s Swan Song for America”? America and Free World patriots: This is what Obama and His Shadow Government have lined up for you: Timeline: Sept. 8: Back to School when tens of millions of children from pre-kindergarten and up will see pictures, not of Presidents Washington and Jefferson but ones of an anti-American, whose own...

    President Obama set out for a weeklong family vacation Sunday facing the first stiff headwind of his presidency, with public polls showing his popularity has dipped as he has attempted an overhaul of the nation's ailing health care system. A series of national surveys has confirmed what was becoming clear as large groups of protesters rallied outside the speeches and town-hall events the president hosted last week in Western states. The Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll released Sunday showed that 41 percent of voters strongly disapprove of Mr. Obama's performance as president, compared with 27 percent who strongly approved. Rasmussen...
