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

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: Iran Missile Can Hit US; Now They Just Need the Nukes Obama Gives Them

Whereas the Soviets refrained from nuclear confrontation out of a self of sense preservation, it doesnt take an active imagination to ponder Iranian leaders who lack that sense of proportion.

Todd Starnes Todd Starnes: Churches Destroyed in Muslim Mob Attack but Bible Survives

Cal  Thomas Cal Thomas: Another Snow Job

The network meteorologists barely had time to come up for air while "forecasting" the latest snowstorm non-disaster. Politicians, fearing what might happen to their approval numbers if a blizzard hit, went on TV to announce they were taking proactive measures.

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?

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.

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.

Arthur  Schaper Arthur Schaper : The Race for California's U.S. Senate Seat

The rumblings about the race for California's US Senate seat are heating up. 2010 was a welcome attempt for Republicans to unseat incumbent Barbara Boxer, who has enjoyed relatively low approval ratings throughout her tenure. In the two prior contests, Republicans promoted a weak candidate, Matt Fong, in 1998, then a non-starter in 2004, the former Secretary of State Bill Jones, who did not have the money to finance a statewide media campaign.

Matthew Bowman Matthew Bowman: How The Contraception Mandate May Spread Measles: Politicizing Preventive Care Increases Public Distrust

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?
