Amid all the heated cross-currents of debate about the National Security Agency's massive surveillance program, there is a growing distrust of the Obama administration that makes weighing the costs and benefits of the NSA program itself hard to assess.
There's simply no requirement that the border be definitely, measurably secure before today's immigrants complete the journey from illegality to citizenship.
Though deadbeat dads and high-school dropouts might pervade some communities, there are still far more models than mess-ups across our country, and some stand head and shoulders above the rest. Let me tell you about a few stellar examples.
In an age when “finance” editors, like the HuffPo’s Mark Gongloff, are demonstrably anti-business, pro-Occupy and work as shills for progressive ideas, facts take a back seat to ideology, outrage and agendas.
Walter Williams is a veteran, a professor of economics at George Mason University, a syndicated columnist, a fill-in host for Rush Limbaugh and an author of eight books. Williams has one of the finest minds in America as you're about to see as you read these quotations.
Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson attacked Sen. Rand Paul, my brother, Rush, and my good friend Mark Levin in a recent column for their various comments concerning the National Security Agency's surveillance data collection operation and other administration activities.
In the weeks before the Supreme Court ruled on the constitutionality of Obamacare, the country trembled with anticipation. No such eagerness is evident now -- yet the court is again poised to rattle our world. The case of Fisher v. Texas could upend the system of racial preferences in use throughout American higher education.
Mr. Obama last week issued a typical Father’s Day Proclamation leading up to the weekend. In it, he said “there is no substitute for fathers.” But in the same proclamation, he takes it back, asserting that two moms will substitute nicely for a father in the home.
For too long, American involvement in the Middle East has employed the wrong formula in the mistaken belief that we can change the thinking of radical Islamists. In fact, our "reach-out" efforts are seen as weakness in much of the Islamic world
Last week, in Nice, France, I was privileged to participate, along with 30 scholars, mostly scientists and mathematicians, in a conference on the question of whether the universe was designed, or at least fine-tuned, to make life, especially intelligent life.
Barack Obama has just taken his first baby steps into a war in Syria that may define and destroy his presidency.
With blended funds it’s almost like having a babysitter for your money. You’re not the one watching the kids, and to me that’s a big mistake.
Employees need to know their rights and what they must do to protect themselves from union bosses who are more interested in collecting union dues than employee freedom. We, and the many good organizations supporting NEFW, intend to do just that.
Europe is attempting to resolve domestic imbalances by forcing them onto their trade partners. This will end badly, especially for Germany
Kyle Olson, CEO of eagnews.com, joined the program to discuss the ongoing challenges in education. Everything from Common Core to more powerful unions are threatening to further devolve American Education.
Last week, Bill Clinton warned that President Barack Obama risked looking like a "wuss" and "a total fool" for not acting sooner on Syria. Shortly thereafter -- but two months after Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel charged that strongman Bashar Assad had crossed a "red line" in using chemical weapons against his own people -- the White House announced that in response to Assad's use of sarin, the administration would send small arms to help Syrian rebels.
Earlier this month, Paul Krugman wrote that, “a Heritage Foundation economist has been accused of presenting false, deliberately misleading data and analysis to the Senate Budget Committee.” Krugman was too clever to assert that the Heritage economist “did present” dishonest data, but if you read his short post, he clearly wants readers to believe that an unambiguous falsehood has been exposed.
The purpose of this proposal for talks is to achieve by implication, if not by direct engagement, US recognition of North Korea as a nuclear armed power. That explains the open-ended nature of the offer-any topic, any place, any time, without conditions.
One could even go so far as to say that there are a number of factors indicating anything but a recovery. A large portion of the population is underemployed and shackled to an overwhelming amount of student loan debt - debt that will siphon liquidity from the markets as well as from the individuals.
It seems the Southern Baptist Convention approves of freedom of association in the United States of America when it allows churches to disassociate themselves from the national Boy Scouts of America. But when it comes to the Boy Scouts' own freedom? Not so much.
President Obama's Father's Day speech included one provocative, yet very declarative, sentence: "We should reform our child support laws to get more men working and engaged with their children." Obama didn't elaborate, but we can build on what he said because, yes indeed, child support laws urgently need "reform."
When it comes to our country's enemies, Intelligence collection and law enforcement are not separate entities.There, the life of an average citizen can be deemed to be worth no more than the price of a bullet. Snowden's amateurism has just given these regimes more ammunition.
The most naive foreign policy president perhaps in our history seems unable to appreciate the difference.
Some union-controlled school boards in Michigan are finding that revenue has not been keeping up with expenses, likely due to a lack of fiscal prudence and their inability to say “no” to their union friends.
The Fed trying to keep Wall Street calm is akin to parents buying their fat child candy to stop him from whining. Let him whine and let the Street complain.
It doesn’t matter whether the Republican-led House passes good, workable immigration legislation.
The American coal industry is in free-fall and companies are being forced to do whatever it takes to keep from closing their doors. It’s a difficult situation for all involved, and the progressive media is eager to levy the blame on the free market.
It's not often that President Barack Obama and I agree. But on Father's Day, I was reminded that some issues go beyond political debates and are deeply personal.
Every department of a campaign needs to be part of a continuous feedback loop that updates the campaign’s data and implements new best practices from analyzing that data. Why did the Obama campaign have such good data? It was because they canvassed neighborhoods and collected it.
In the wake of recent events, many people of a variety of persuasions are coming to agree that the First Amendment, which protects and ensures our first freedoms, is facing an all-out attack.
Let’s be blunt: anyone who endorses anything remotely resembling the “comprehensive immigration reform” currently bandied about in Congress is either a fool or a liar.
