Erick Erickson Erick Erickson: With Friends Like These

Republican Leaders in Washington, D.C. told the public they would stand up to Barack Obama's executive amnesty plan. They said they would stop him. "Trust us," they said. They concocted a plan to fund the government, but stopped funding the Department of Homeland Security at the end of February.

Mark Davis Mark Davis: Presidential Candidate Guide to "Gotcha" Questions

First of all, best of luck. If you are successful, it will be your job to dig the United States out of the eight-year abyss of the Obama presidency. This will take courage, vision, hard work and resiliency.

Brent Bozell Brent Bozell: Why Political Oscar Speeches Stink

The media noticed that this year's Oscars ceremony contained a lot of political tub-thumping, but they didn't notice that these speeches were predictable and obnoxious left-wing screeds.

Michael Barone Michael Barone: Watch Out for China Winning its 100-Year Marathon

In reflecting on relations between the United States and China, Henry Kissinger in his 2011 book, "On China," notes that since he and Richard Nixon ventured to Beijing more than 40 years ago, "Eight American presidents and four generations of Chinese leaders have managed this delicate relationship in an astonishingly consistent manner, considering the difference in starting points."

Jonah Goldberg Jonah Goldberg: Is Liberalism Exhausted?

Canaries are not very formidable birds, but they have their uses. For instance, coal miners learned over a century ago that when canaries gag and drop dead at the bottom of the cage, it's a sign that maybe there's something wrong with the air in the mine.

David Limbaugh David Limbaugh: Obama's Highhanded Immigration Hypocrisy

Honestly, are any of my Democratic friends even slightly bothered by President Obama's habitual and brazen lawlessness and what that could mean for our liberties?

Mona Charen Mona Charen: Questions the Press Doesn't Ask Democrats

Gov. Scott Walker has leapt to the top of polls in Iowa. As day follows night, he has moved to the center of the liberal press's crosshairs. This is the world we inhabit: When a Democrat is perceived as popular, the press discovers layers of humor and elan we never suspected. When a Republican is gaining strength, the press sharpens its bayonets.

John Ransom John Ransom: Protecting Politicians from the Liberty of the Masses

Politicians think this is the same country that Walter Cronkite dominated when he opposed the Vietnam War. Or least that's what they'd like it to be. Staff Staff: Rep. Blackburn Assures Pro-lifers the Pain-Capable Bill Will Return

Townhall's Cortney O'Brien interviews Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee at CPAC 2015.

Paul  Van Remortel Paul Van Remortel: Conservatives Can Step Up Their Digital Strategy With Online Petitions

Its no secret that conservatives need to step up their digital game, and despite great strides since 2008, there are still key facets missing from our arsenal for online organizing. One powerful tool often deployed by progressives is the use of online petitions to rapidly garner substantial support.

Pat Buchanan Pat Buchanan: GOP Platform: War Without End

If the sadists of ISIS are seeking -- with their mass executions, child rapes, immolations, and beheadings of Christians -- to stampede us into a new war in the Middle East, they are succeeding.

Suzanne Fields Suzanne Fields: Oscar's Gem From Across the Ocean

Hollywood can't help itself. The glitteries inevitably use the Academy Awards to push their personal politics, sometimes cheap and occasionally not, rewarding razzle-dazzle over real life.

Suzanne Fields Suzanne Fields: Oscar's Gem From Across the Ocean

Hollywood can't help itself. The glitteries inevitably use the Academy Awards to push their personal politics, sometimes cheap and occasionally not, rewarding razzle-dazzle over real life. This year the two most important Oscars, for best picture and best director, went to "Birdman," about razzle-dazzle, and not "Boyhood," about real life.

David Harsanyi David Harsanyi: There's Nothing Unpatriotic About Challenging Obama on Iran

The Obama administration values a future relationship with Iran more than it values the historic relationship it has with Israel.

Linda Chavez Linda Chavez: Comforting the Enemy

Democrats are playing a dangerous game with Israel by snubbing the prime minister of America's staunchest Middle East ally.

Humberto Fontova Humberto Fontova: Paris And Conan Do Havana

Along with an estimated 637,000 people from the U.S. recently, Paris Hilton and Conan OBrien somehow squeaked through the cracks of the diabolical U.S. blockade of Cuba for a visit to Havana. (Btw, in the 1950ws when Cuba was a U.S. tourist playground! an average 200,000 Americans visited Cuba annually.)

Donald Lambro Donald Lambro: Obama's Veto Of Keystone Pipeline Is All About Politics

Charles Payne Charles Payne: What's Eating Main Street?

I want to revisit the news and a few things that were lost in all the Fed hoopla earlier this week. The Consumer Confidence measured by the conference board missed consensus estimates, but the devilish details are even more worrisome.

Michael Hausam Michael Hausam: The States With the Top Job-Producing Climates Have Two Interesting Things In Common

Given the results of these states' historical and last November's elections, it would be very difficult to not directly connect political ideology and party affiliation with their economic performance. Elections have consequences and these states are enjoying those results.

Nick Sorrentino Nick Sorrentino: Biden Wants to "Emancipate" Wealth... How Did He Make His?

Biden is the quintessential political Cheshire cat. (The Washington DC subspecies.) The guy can smile through anything. Probably a good thing to be able to do if one is Vice President Biden.

Mike Shedlock Mike Shedlock: Right to Work Sweeps Through Mid West

Right-to-Work legislation is sweeping the Midwest. It's one of many reforms needed to makes states more competitive, reduce cost pressures on infrastructure projects, and hold down the necessity of tax hikes.

D.W. Wilber D.W. Wilber: The Obama Fraud

As each day passes it is becoming more and more apparent that the Obama Administrations grip on reality with regards to the terrorist threats faced by this country is fast slipping away.

Michael Schaus Michael Schaus: FCC Approves Socialism for Broadband

Ashley Pratte Ashley Pratte: Scandal: Not Just a TV Show, But a DC Reality

Daniel J. Mitchell Daniel J. Mitchell: The State Department’s Refugee Program Shouldn’t be a Terrorist-Funding Welfare Scam

Lets look at the profoundly perverse way that the federal government is using the refugee program to expand the problem of dependency.
