John Hawkins John Hawkins: Obama's 15 Worst Excuses For His Failed Presidency

Republicans ahead of him on the golf course wouldn't let him play through; so he missed calls telling him ISIS was overrunning Iraq.

Brent Bozell Brent Bozell: Hollywood Plays Around With Virginity

Today virginity isn't a virtue but a burden. Chastity is a freak show and anyone who chooses to keep it is a carnival barker. In today's entertainment world, weirdos -- especially sexual weirdos -- drive a juicy plot, so virgins are in vogue, as a target or merely as an anthropological curiosity.

John C. Goodman John C. Goodman: Three Cheers for Ryan’s Plan

Here is a surprise. Although Ryan’s approach is based on well-known conservative ideas, some on the left are actually praising parts of the proposal – including the editorial page of the Washington Post.

John Ransom John Ransom: Obama Conjugates the Economy: Broke, Broker, Broken

The press will cover the good news adequately, while the press will cover-up the bad news adequately, too. It's all the same, after all. It's helping Obama, the only economy anyone should care about.

Ken Blackwell Ken Blackwell: Needed: Housing Reform That Protects Property Rights

A monumental opportunity has presented itself as Julian Castro, former mayor of San Antonio, takes over as the new Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and Congress looks ahead on the critical issue of housing finance reform.

Terry Paulson Terry Paulson: The Media Controls What America Sees

?In the classic comedy, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," the daughter Toula complains to her mother about her stubborn father being the "head of the house," Maria replied, "Let me tell you something, Toula. The man is the head, but the woman is the neck. And she can turn the head any way she wants."

Humberto Fontova Humberto Fontova: Jesse Ventura Swoons Over Fidel Castro and Che Guevara

Maybe it’s just a coincidence that somebody like Jesse Ventura is also a major fan of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara? (Or claims to be for the publicity value among the “hip”?)

Kathryn Lopez Kathryn Lopez: Let Sacrifice Be Your Safe Word

By only spending the minimum on yourself, you may find that you have much more than you would ever need. This was Gershon Burd's discovery, and it was how, on a modest income, he gave away (anonymously) so much to so many. Modesty helps us see the big picture -- that our lives should be integrated wholes, lived in communion with others. It's about escaping the tyranny of an isolated something that seems increasingly difficult and outre with each passing year and technology upgrade.

Paul Greenberg Paul Greenberg: And the War Came

The innocent American could only read the headlines and shake his head sorrowfully at the continuing carnage in Gaza -- a pillar of fire by night and a cloud of smoke by day. How did this happen again? Simple: Hamas renewed its indiscriminate attacks on Israel through overhead rockets, underground tunnels, words and deeds -- and Israel finally responded in force.

Robert  Charles Robert Charles: That Voice in the Wilderness

Today, that one voice is the average American. It is you. It is me. And the time has come to speak.

Brandon Howell Brandon Howell: For Michelle Nunn, What Kind of Week it Has Been

All in all, a pretty rugged one.

Mark Skousen Mark Skousen: It's Time for a New Way to Calculate Economic Growth

Stocks sold off sharply Thursday. Finally, the much anticipated correction is happening, but I don’t see any fundamental reason for the decline. It’s purely a technical correction.

Michael Schaus Michael Schaus: Small-Government Group Now Stumping For Harry Reid’s Internet Tax

The first clue that the Market Place Fairness Act is antithetical to the philosophy of small government is, that it was passed by Harry Reid’s Senate. Do you really think Harry just let some small government, Federalist, piece of legislation slip by on accident?

Steve Deace Steve Deace: In Praise of the Republican Party Establishment

Maybe we've had it wrong this whole time? Maybe the leadership of the Republican Party should be commended for the very things we often criticize them for? Or maybe I'm getting a contact high for living too close to Colorado.

Night Watch Night Watch: Libya is Now a Failed State

The security situation has deteriorated in Tripoli and in Benghazi. In Tripoli, fighting between tribal militias has expanded beyond the airport region, south of Tripoli, to areas west of the capital.

Larry Provost Larry Provost: The Atomic Bomb: It Was Always Right

This week Major Theodore Van Kirk, the last surviving Veteran of the Enola Gay that dropped the first atomic bomb on Japan, joined the rest of his comrades. His passing is a reminder of why using the atomic bomb was the right thing.

Mike Shedlock Mike Shedlock: The Complete Employment Perspective in Pictures

Here's another way of looking at things: Only 25% of the decline in full-time employment in the 25-54 age group can be attributed to the aging work force. The rest is overall economic weakness.

Charles Payne Charles Payne: Junk the Fed and Change Fiscal Policy

It’s time to banish the Fed. It’s time to re-embrace capitalism. The same way watered down academics are destroying our preparedness for the future, so too is monetary policy that water’s down the dollar.

Jack Kerwick Jack Kerwick: Another Travesty of Justice: The Carr Brothers Live

Revisiting a gruesome black-on-white crime.

Bill Tatro Bill Tatro: A College Degree – So What?

According to the latest figures available in 2014, as of 2011, (a bit of a lag when it comes to education) the United States had 21 million students in higher education. But who's really get a job nowadays?

Daniel J. Mitchell Daniel J. Mitchell: An Obamacare Statist Gets Caught Lying (over and over again)

Our topic today is humor. Or maybe it’s hypocrisy. Or perhaps it’s duplicity. Heck, it’s all of those things and more. Why? Because a leading supporter of Obamacare has been caught with his pants down.

Ransom Notes Radio Ransom Notes Radio: Josh Earnest Stumbles Through Another Press Conference

The ironically named White House Press Secretary, Josh Earnest, is this week’s “Ezra Klein is an Idiot” award winner. Apparently, being able to say stupid things without batting an eye is a job requirement for the Obama Administration.

Doug Fabian Doug Fabian: ETFs Offer More Innovation than Other Options

One very important reason why I’ve come to really love ETFs, particularly during the past several years, is product innovation.

Peter Morici Peter Morici: Jobs Growth Disappoints, Real Unemployment Hangs at 18 Percent

The Labor Department reported the economy added only 209,000 jobs in July. The unemployment rate rose to 6.2 percent, but that hardly tells how tough the labor market has become for ordinary folks.

Michelle Malkin Michelle Malkin: The Environmental Corruption Agency

The lofty motto of the Environmental Protection Agency is "protecting people and the environment."
