David Limbaugh David Limbaugh: Feminist Thought Police vs. Feminine Kirsten Dunst

The left's tyrannical suppression of opposing views would be less farcical if leftists weren't such pseudo-champions of tolerance and freedom of expression. In our leftist-dominated culture, the permitted categories of speech are becoming ever more restrictive.

John Ransom John Ransom: First Fire Sebelius, Now (Forcibly) Retire Who Else?

If you're a Washington politician or bureaucrat I'd be all for you retiring now, regardless of age. If firing Sebelius improved Obamacare, I have a whole bunch of additional suggestions on improving the government.

Mona Charen Mona Charen: Time Bombs in Democratic Coalition

The Republican Party is roiling with internal conflicts, say the analysts. The tea party is confronting the establishment. The noninterventionists are at war (forgive the expression) with the interventionists. The libertarians would like the party to endorse same-sex marriage.

Diana West Diana West: Why the EU is Not Your Father's Europe

Linda Chavez Linda Chavez: The Problem with Dartmouth

Dartmouth College has a problem. Protestors occupied the president's office at the Ivy League school a couple of weeks ago and demanded more "womyn or people of color" faculty, coverage of sex-change operations on the student health plan, and "gender-neutral bathrooms," among other things. Now Dartmouth President Philip J. Hanlon has responded with a call "to end the extreme behaviors that are in conflict with our mission."

Paul Greenberg Paul Greenberg: Where We Are Now

Flashing endlessly by, the unceasing flow of BREAKING NEWS seduces and betrays, mainly by pretending to be new. Even though, as the Preacher said, what has been will be. The particulars of the story may change, but not the human condition. The names may be new, but the stories remain remarkably the same, just as weapons change but war remains the bloody same.

Ashley Pratte Ashley Pratte: Repeal of Obamacare Would Increase the Deficit—Seriously?

According to Obama, repealing Obamacare would increase the deficit. You’re probably just as shocked as I am to hear this bold statement seeing as the public relations for Obamacare alone cost taxpayers millions of dollars more than anticipated and states such as Maryland are completely overhauling their websites—a huge waste of taxpayer dollars.

Ransom Notes Radio Ransom Notes Radio: Jews in Ukraine Asked to Register with Authorities

In Pro-Russian controlled towns, in Eastern Ukraine, Jews are being asked to “register” with authorities and list their “assets”… Haven’t we seen this movie before? Obama’s responded by telling Vladimir Putin that he would “unfriend” him on Facebook if things didn’t settle down a bit.

Peter Morici Peter Morici: White House Strategy: Fabricating Fear and Injustice

Facing mid-term elections and burdened with persistently high unemployment, President Obama is playing the race, gender, and class cards. Fabricating fear and injustice, such tactics keep the economy in slow gear and make worse the very people the president professes to help.

Night Watch Night Watch: NATO Gives Putin the Green Light on Ukraine

Ann Coulter Ann Coulter: Back Any Candidate You Want as Long as It's One of These Three

As those of you who follow my hate mail know, I am opposed to running untested candidates against perfectly good incumbent Republican senators this election cycle. It will be a long time before Republicans have as good a year as this to win a Senate majority.
