Young Women Are Being Lied To By the Left; Fight Back With New Book “Assault and Flattery”
Students will be lied to. About the victimization of women at the hands of Republicans. About the God-given differences between men and women. About the importance of the family.
Jackie Gingrich Cushman:
President Obama Should Go Down to Border
Based on this fiscal year's eight-and-a-half months of activity so far, the number of unaccompanied alien children from Honduras apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol will increase 22 times from what it was in 2009.
Victor Davis Hanson:
Hypocrites Take a Selfish Stance on Border Crisis
No one knows just how many tens of thousands of Central American nationals -- most of them desperate, unescorted children and teens -- are streaming across America's southern border. Yet this phenomenon offers us a proverbial teachable moment about the paradoxes and hypocrisies of Latin American immigration to the U.S.
The President’s Amnesty Shell Game
It took 5 1/2 years, but we’ve finally found a law President Obama is willing to enforce as written.
DOW at 17,000 -- But You're Not Invited
The stock market reached a record high last week, closing over 17,000 for the first time. Good news, of course. As President John F. Kennedy famously said, "A rising tide lifts all boats." But it sure helps if you own a boat.
Judge Andrew Napolitano:
Spying on Innocents
In what appears to be one of Edward Snowden's final revelations, the former CIA and NSA agent has demonstrated conclusively that the National Security Agency has collected and analyzed the contents of emails, text messages, and mobile and landline telephone calls from nine non-targeted U.S. residents for every one U.S. resident it has targeted.
So 'Obama': Fair is Unfair
Reforming illegal immigration or the 74,000-page tax code would be way too burdensome. Think of how fair that would be for Obama to enforce then.
Chicago: A Town That Won't Let You Down?
Frank Sinatra's song about Chicago, "My Kind of Town," "a the town that won't let you down," seems dated in light of last weekend's shooting spree that left 16 dead and dozens wounded in 53 separate incidents.
Debra J. Saunders:
Romney Has Done Enough for the GOP
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told MSNBC's Chris Matthews he thinks that Mitt Romney will run for president in 2016 and that "he will be the next president of the United States." The former Massachusetts governor lost the GOP primary in 2008 and then the general election in 2012. What would his 2016 slogan be, "the third time's a charm"?
An Independent Kurdistan: World War I Continues
I doubt Barzani intentionally echoed Woodrow Wilson's post-World War I call for political self-determination. Kurdish nationalists believe, with good cause, they were grievously wronged after World War I.
Flighty Florida Gubernatorial Race Could Be Decided by This "Obscure" Issue
Not long ago, Republican Florida Gov. Rick Scott had been written off as politically dead. Just several months back, the incumbent Scott trailed in the polls to Democrat Charlie Crist.
The Battle of the Border
?It is one thing for Republicans to point fingers at President Barack Obama. It is something else for a Democrat to point a finger at Barack Obama.
Secrecy, the No-Fly List and Concealed Weapons
It's a classic Orwellian nightmare: The government decides to deny you a right it extends to other people, but it won't tell you why and it won't tell you what you can do about it.
What the Obituarists Never Said About Dick Scaife
On the day after his 82nd birthday, on Independence Day to be precise, a giant passed away, Richard Scaife. The man had style.
The Supreme Court Gave Women More Freedom, Not Less
Tuning into coverage of last week’s Hobby Lobby HHS Mandate Supreme Court decision would have generated countless photos and videos of young women cheering the Court’s decision that gave Hobby Lobby and other closely held companies the right to refuse to purchase life-ending drugs that they held were morally reprehensible.
Save the Polar Bears with Communism?
Christiana Figueres has suggested that only communism is capable of successfully fighting global warming and “climate change”. Of course it’s a strange statement, given the Soviet Union’s abysmal record on environmental issues, and red China’s horrific display of environmental abuse.
Daniel J. Mitchell:
Immorality and the Redistributive State
I suspect advocates of economic liberty and smaller government won’t win the debate unless we augment our arguments by also making the moral case against government-sanctioned theft.
$22 Billion in California Homes Sold to Chinese All-Cash Buyers
Real estate is well back in bubble territory in some places, notably California. It won't end any differently this time for the buyers, but at least banks will not be on the hook for all of the loans.
Rebels in Iraq and Syria are Turning on Fellow Jihadists
ISIL is acting quickly to eliminate rivals and malcontents, especially their leaders. The so-called Caliph is reported to have had 13 imams executed over the weekend in Mosul.
Taking Risk and Seeing Warning Signals
We are always enthralled and enamored with rags-to-riches stories that layout a blueprint that includes risk-taking, hard work, and commitment. Yet, when it comes to changing our own lives, such attributes are checked at the door in favor of safety.
Tea Party: Learn From Al Gore
Chris McDaniel, candidate for the U.S. Senate from Mississippi, lost the Republican runoff to incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran last month, and now he is being led down a primrose path to political oblivion. McDaniel's passionate supporters think that a moment of crisis for the country is a good time to treat control of the Senate as if it's a prom queen election.
Obama's Immigration Lawyers' Enrichment Act
The American Dream is dying for tens of millions of unemployed, underemployed and long-term jobless citizens.
Walter E. Williams:
Spending and Morality
During last year's budget negotiation meetings, President Barack Obama told House Speaker John Boehner, "We don't have a spending problem." When Boehner responded with "But, Mr. President, we have a very serious spending problem," Obama replied, "I'm getting tired of hearing you say that."
