Kurt  Schlichter Kurt Schlichter: Don’t Blame Sony – Blame Obama and the Tort System

It's shameful that a company like Sony would go groveling to a deceitful, tyrannical, un-American thug, but this column is not about Sonys sucking up to Al Sharpton.

John Ransom John Ransom: Using the Law to Stop the IRS

The Republicans ought to turn the Committee into a real force to prosecute wrong-doing at the IRS as well as institute long-needed reforms.

John Ransom John Ransom: Obama's Plan to Fix Racism by Executive Order...

Katie Kieffer Katie Kieffer: No Room for Vets in the Inn

Homeless American veterans shiver in the bitter cold while illegal immigrants receive subsidized four-year degrees.

Cal  Thomas Cal Thomas: Cuba Libré!

Is it possible to hold two seemingly contradictory thoughts about the president's decision to partially end the half-century embargo against Cuba? Can one agree with conservative critics, from Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), to Rush Limbaugh about how the Castro brothers are, apparently, getting everything they want and how the U.S. gets nothing but promises from a repressive regime that lies -- and still back the president's decision?

Rachel Alexander Rachel Alexander: The 20-year Demise of a Blue State

I left Washington state about 20 years ago for Arizona. A Washington native, I had become fed up with the left-wing politics of Seattle.

Calvin Beisner Calvin Beisner: The Great Climate Change Bamboozle Industry

After sniping at religion (as if only fundamentalists are climate skeptics), bemoaning the decline in public fears of global warming but lacking the curiosity to ask whether there might be good reasons, and repeating the myth that polar bears are endangered, Thorson progressed to errors of fact and, well, more fallacious reasoning.

Paul Greenberg Paul Greenberg: It's A Wonderful Life

Rich Galen Rich Galen: Two Cops

Two New York City cops, Wenjian Liu (38) and Rafael Ramos (40), were murdered Saturday afternoon sitting in their marked car parked near what in New York is known as "a project" - typically a high-rise, low cost housing structure - where they were attempting, by virtue of their visibility, to protect the residents.

Donald Lambro Donald Lambro: Obama's Giveaway Deal With Cuba May Hurt His Party in 2016

His arrogant decision this week to re-establish diplomatic relations with Communist Cuba is the latest example of a president desperately searching for something to do without having to deal with Congress.

Matt Barber Matt Barber: No Longer a Republican

I am no longer a Republican. John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and their Democrat-lite, RINO Republican establishment have seen to that.

Mike Shedlock Mike Shedlock: OPEC Blames Speculators, Non-OPEC Countries, US Frackers for Oil Price Crash

Are US shale frackers really to blame for the price crash?

Julian Young Julian Young: Public School to Prison Pipeline and How We Can Break It

The irony in all this is that I am the same elementary student who was called a low achiever. However, the reality was in public school, my unique talents of entrepreneurship, such as risk taking, high energy, constant talking and going against the grain, were viewed as disruptions instead of as gifts.

Steve Deace Steve Deace: Crystal Ball 2015

My annual predictions for the New Year, which are probably going to be wrong but fun to read anyway.

Tom Purcell Tom Purcell: Healthy Job Performance Review

"You've worked for us for 10 years, Johnson, but I'm not sure how to grade you during this year's performance review."

Doug Fabian Doug Fabian: Looking ahead to the New Year’s Winners and Losers

Given that there are only 12 more days left in 2014, I think now is the best time to start contemplating whats really going to affect markets in 2015.

Chris Versace Chris Versace: What Dividend Increases Mean for a Stock’s Future

Michael Schaus Michael Schaus: The Dictatorship of Obama’s Bureaucrats

Much like today, no-one wanted to go to New Jersey on December 26th, 1776. But, Washington and his men made the trek anyway, and ultimately emerged victorious in the Battle of Trenton. Now If we could just remind DC what that whole skirmish in 1776 was all about

Nicholas Vardy Nicholas Vardy: These Elite S&P 500 Stocks Beat the Rest of the Market

With that kind of record of outperformance, dumping a mainstream, S&P 500 Index fund in favor of a portfolio of Dividend Aristocrats is a no brainer for both my subscribers and my clients.

Peter Morici Peter Morici: Forecasts for the Weeks of December 22 and January 5

Peter Morici is a professor at the University of Maryland Smith School of Business and former Chief Economist at the U.S. International Trade Commission.

Daniel J. Mitchell Daniel J. Mitchell: Crocodile Tears for the IRS

It appears that having the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile is not a good strategy for big budget increases.

Mark Skousen Mark Skousen: Janet Santa is Coming to Town: A Christmas Gift for You

Historically, one of the ironies is that more Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than Democrats.

Shawn Mitchell Shawn Mitchell: The Creepiest Public Era Ever

Congress is afraid to confront the president that offended America enough to cause voters to reconfigure Congress. Sony is afraid to defy a tiny prison camp nation that paid hackers to undress Sony. Networks are afraid to honestly report on the administration that employs their spouses, lovers, brothers and friends.

Ryan Bomberger Ryan Bomberger: The Inequality of "Equality"

Equality is a concept that is thrown about all the time. Ensuring it has become a religion with the devout willing to do anything to force it upon everyone.

Jack Kerwick Jack Kerwick: Natural Law, Positive Law, and Disobedience

In the wake of the Eric Garner case, some libertarians have urged us to revisit the topic of natural law, a higher moral law that supplies an objective standard of justice for positive law, the law(s) posited (or made) by human beings.

Jerry Newcombe Jerry Newcombe: Is the American Dream Really Dead?

Last month, a professor of economics at the University of California, Davis made some headlines by basically asserting that there is no American dream. It's a myth. He crunched the numbers, supposedly disproving it. Hmm. My dad used to always say, "Did you ever hear about the statistician who drowned in a river, the average depth of which was 6 inches?"

Travis Korson Travis Korson: The Other North Korean Threat

Over the last few days, North Korean actions that ultimately scuttled the release of Sony Picture Entertainments release of The Interview have dominated the headlines.
