Michelle Malkin Michelle Malkin: Obama's Taliban Tools and Treachery

To call President Obama's Afghanistan policy a mess is a colossal understatement. To call it a coherent "policy," for that matter, is a gut-busting exaggeration. It's a bloody, incompetent and treacherous disaster.

Erick Erickson Erick Erickson: Hostility to Tradition

In the 90s, the Clinton Administration formed a bipartisan coalition to pass the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act, or RFRA. Nineteen states followed suit. The legislation came in response to a Supreme Court decision that had seen an American Indian suffer legally for having used a drug during a well-established American-Indian religious ceremony.

Brent Bozell Brent Bozell: Harvey Weinstein's P.C. Oscar Campaign

The Academy Awards is meant to be the world's most prestigious honors for achievement in movies. Politics should have nothing to do with it, but, increasingly, that's not so. Hollywood is now regularly treading beyond "artistic excellence" and letting political overtones sway the outcome.

Michael Barone Michael Barone: My Mistakes About 2016 Presidential Race

Some columnists write New Year's columns chronicling the mistakes over the last year. I don't, but as this January has rolled on, it's become clear I've made many about the 2016 presidential race.

Gannon LeBlanc Gannon LeBlanc: Snyder’s Road Tax Reforms is a Bad Path for Michigan

After the 2014 midterm elections, a lame-duck session of lawmakers got together to strike one final blow against the citizens of Michigan who voted them out.

David Limbaugh David Limbaugh: Obama's Narcissistic Dissing of Israel

It is just like the Obama administration to twist its own mistreatment of Israel into an opportunity to slander Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer.

Mona Charen Mona Charen: A Better Cuba Deal

Cuban President Raul Castro has issued new demands for normalizing relations with the U.S. He wants us to lift the trade embargo, remove Cuba from the list of state sponsors of terror and give Cuba the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay. Truly. You can look it up.

John Ransom John Ransom: GDP: Gross Disapponting Presidency

That means that for the year we're at 2.4% GDP growth...anemic in other words, which is exactly how to describe Obama's foreign policy. Weak at home, weaker overseas.

Ken Blackwell Ken Blackwell: America Opposes Amnesty…Will the GOP Listen?

The 2014 midterm elections was one for the history books. When President Barack Obama said all of his policies were on the ballot, voters rushed to the voting booths to give Republicans an extraordinary landslide victory.

Pat Buchanan Pat Buchanan: Derail Fast Track!

Last November, Republicans grew their strength in Congress to levels unseen since 1946. What united the party and rallied the nation was the GOP's declared resolve to stand up to an imperious president.

Suzanne Fields Suzanne Fields: Heroes in the Age of the Selfie

Heroes, real ones, are getting harder to find. One of the few remaining annual surprises in the typical State of the Union address is the president's introduction of his "mystery guest." Ronald Reagan introduced the first one in 1982, celebrating one Leonard Skutnik for an extraordinary act of courage.

Patrick Michaels Patrick Michaels: Did Global Warming Juice Winter Storm Juno?

The day prior to Juno hitting southern New England (and not New York), Governor Andrew Cuomo blamed the changing climate. Is there any evidence global warming buried southern New England?

David Harsanyi David Harsanyi: Obama Keeps Bowing in the Middle East

At the World Economic Forum last week, Secretary of State John Kerry argued that though extremists may cite Islam as a justification for terrorism, the world should refrain from using the term "Islamic radicals."

Matt Towery Matt Towery: The Price is Right; Budget Director Should Be Sent Packing

Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga) is by profession a physician, and a quiet and thoughtful man. For years he has led his colleagues in developing Republican policy in the House, and while he would appear to be a bit like the policy wonk, he has an ability to turn into a "superman" when it comes to taking strong conservative positions.

Humberto Fontova Humberto Fontova: Michael Moore’s Long Tradition of Defaming Heroes

The military hero as coward motif has a long tradition with Michael Moore. But his earlier oinkings in this regard--well before the release of American Sniper-- were aimed at much safer targets.

Linda Chavez Linda Chavez: Iowa Pitfalls

Rep. Steve King's Iowa Freedom Summit last week was not the most fortuitous launch for Republican presidential hopefuls, but it could have been worse. The Iowa congressman has embarrassed himself and the GOP with his anti-immigrant rhetoric over the years, which is no doubt why some prominent would-be candidates had "scheduling conflicts" that kept them away.

Paul Greenberg Paul Greenberg: Lost Words, Lost Worlds

It's a slim little book that had a powerful impact as this country and the rest of the world hovered on the edge of war in 1939: "Mrs. Miniver" by Jan Struther, which began as a collection of short newspaper columns in the Times about the daily life of an English household in suburban London. Then it became a popular novel, and eventually a classic movie (Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon).

Donald Lambro Donald Lambro: Republicans See Opportunity In Run-Up To 2016 Election

WASHINGTON -- The crowded race for the Republican 2016 presidential nomination has begun, and it promises to be a massive political assault on Barack Obama's failed presidency.

Rebecca Hagelin Rebecca Hagelin: The Challenge: When Life Gets Hard

Why do bad things happen?

Michael Brown Michael Brown: An Open Letter To the Supreme Leader of Iran

Although I am no longer an American youth (I turn 60 in March), I am an American, and on behalf of others in my country, I would like to respond to your open letter to Western youth.

Rob Schwarzwalder Rob Schwarzwalder: School Choice: An American Value

What could be more American than letting moms and dads decide where their kids go to school?

Mark Skousen Mark Skousen: Why I Hate Taxes and Tax Collectors

We constantly hear about the need for tax reform but never really get it. The U.S. Tax Code gets more complex every year, whether its a Republican or Democrat in office.

Chris Versace Chris Versace: How the Strong Dollar and Earnings are Impacting the Market

There are many components that go into being a smart investor. From reading whatever you can get your hands on when it comes to industries and companies to not being afraid to do the number-crunching valuation homework.

Nicholas Vardy Nicholas Vardy: What the ‘Big Mac’ Index Can Reveal about Global Currencies

George Soros, the world-famous currency speculator who broke the Bank of England in 1992, calls investing in currencies an existential choice. No wonder most folks have a hard time getting their heads around the $5-trillion-a-day world of currency trading.

Charles Payne Charles Payne: Crude Awakening

Commercial crude oil inventory surged, coming in at almost 9 million barrels or 100% higher than anticipated. How much longer can we call this a story of supply, and not a hint at a flagging demand from a flaccid economy?

Night Watch Night Watch: Turkey Sulks as Kurds Claim Victory Over ISIS

Kurdish success at Kobani does not fit in Erdogan's vision of a Sunni-dominated region governed by Sharia and led by Turks.

Political  Calculations Political Calculations: The Fed Moves the Goalposts for Expectations

Going into Wednesday, 28 January 2015, investors had believed that the Fed was likely to indicate that the U.S. economy was performing solidly enough that it would begin to implement its plan to hike short term interest rates...

Daniel J. Mitchell Daniel J. Mitchell: White House Surrender on Plan to Tax College Savings

Jack Kerwick Jack Kerwick: 'Occupying the White Male Syllabus' at Berkeley

Upon witnessing the trials of Nazi war criminals in Jerusalem, Hannah Arendt remarked that they shared in common one salient feature: it was not stupidity, she said, but a curious, quite authentic inability to think.

Charlotte Hays Charlotte Hays: Are You Still Charlie?

Mark Zuckerberg isnt. Heck, even Charlie Hebdo isnt still Charlie.

D.W. Wilber D.W. Wilber: That Three O’clock Phone Call

During the 2008 campaign for the Democratic nomination for president, Hillary Clinton famously ran a campaign ad claiming to be the one who was ready to answer that phone call at three oclock in the morning.

Mike Shedlock Mike Shedlock: Inflationists beware: CPI About to Go Negative?

Inflationists claim that is a trend to oblivion. And actually it is. But it's a slow trend towards oblivion with intermittent disruptions as the following chart shows.
