President Barack Obama has declared at a healthcare summit overseas that the United States of America is the sole sufferer of sicknesses.

At the very moment we need strength of vision and core values much of the West spiritually and intellectually is hollowed out at its very heart — its leadership. Many ask: Where is Winston Churchill?
William Murchison, in an American Spectator column, asks: "Is Vladimir Putin the new leader of the free world?" President Obama, writes Murchison, "can't come up with an emotion more honest than irritation" in the wake of horrific terrorist attacks. The Wall Street Journal headlines a Peggy Noonan article on Obama's policy and strategy vacillations, "Uncertain Leadership in Perilous Times." more >>
