My town, New York City, enforces rigid gun laws. Police refused to assign me a gun permit. The law doesn't even let me hold a fake gun on TV to demonstrate something.
Walter E. Williams:
Legal and Academic Equality Nonsense
A particular act or policy might not have a discriminatory intent, but that doesn't let you off the hook. If it has a disproportionately negative impact on so-called protected classes, it is said to have a disparate impact and risks being prohibited by law.
Politics Is Not the Path to Pro-Life Victory
During my time in Congress, I regularly introduced legislation forbidding organizations that perform abortions from receiving federal funding. The U.S. Government should not force taxpayers to subsidize an activity they believe is murder.
For GOP 'Kids,' No Trump Could Mean Better Debate
Some political insiders have dismissed the upcoming debate for second-tier Republican presidential candidates as the "kids' table" debate.
City of Houston Wants to Bulldoze One Black Church, Condemn Another
In a repulsive demonstration of hostility towards Christians, the City of Houston wants to bulldoze one church and condemn the property of another so they can build affordable housing and a public library.
Mark Levin Worries About the Young
Arrogant liberal journalists naturally assume that conservative talk radio only succeeds in making Americans dumber. They reach this conclusion by avoiding conservative talk radio entirely.
Defunding Planned Parenthood Not the Same as Repealing the Right to Abortion
The GOP-controlled Congress is taking up the cause, once again, of defunding Planned Parenthood. This latest effort comes in response to macabre hidden-camera videos shot by the Center for Medical Progress of staff at Planned Parenthood talking about the grisly practice of chopping up fetuses for parts.
Mega-Rich Hillary Cares Oh So Much for Nation's Poor
Hillary Clinton just spoke, along with Republican presidential contender and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, at the National Urban League Conference.
“Cecil” The Lion For President
Until a few days ago, Dr. Walter Palmer was just a successful dentist from Minnesota who had a passion for trophy hunting; a highly regulated and extremely expensive sport.
The Age of the Demagogue

Obama's Climate Hubris
This week, President Obama is hailing his Clean Power Plan as "the single most important step America has ever taken in the fight against global climate change." Obama is posing as the environment's savior, just as he did in 2008, when he promised his presidency would mark "the moment when ... the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal." Seven years later, that messianic legacy is in doubt. Obama's Clean Power Plan has never had legislative support, even when his own party controlled both houses of Congress. Now he's trying to impose it without Congress, an audacious ploy his old Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe condemns as "burning the Constitution."
Gallup Poll Says America’s Economic Confidence Index Plunged Last Month to the Lowest Level Since October
Americans are increasingly pessimistic about their country's future. About the economy, first and foremost, but about a long list of other troubles, too.
Obama's Curious Petro-diplomacy
History will remember U.S. President Barack Obama for having unshackled Iran from economic sanctions so it could enjoy the full benefit of its oil revenues -- some $100 billion or so on standby, according to U.S. Treasury estimates. Obama has arguably done more for Iran's energy independence than he has for America's.
Susan Stamper Brown:
Debbie Wasserman Schultz's Unanswered Question
The progressive left has cannibalized the Democrat[ic] Party to the point that even its chairman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, can no longer differentiate between today's democrat and a socialist. Or, if she can, she's afraid to explain the difference, which is what likely happened during two recent interviews where she had to change the subject rather than speak to the question. So apparently, there is nothing to see here, time to move on.
The Washington Post, Dana Milbank, and Their Republican Friends
Last week Dana Milbank, The Washington Post columnist and political reporter, lamented the lost virtues of amity, collegiality and friendship in Washington political circles, and predictably, he blamed all of this on the Tea Party Republicans.
Arthur Schaper :
Perry Kasich Election 2016
The First GOP Election 2016 Debate is based on a strict threshold. Of the seventeen candidates running for President (now including former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore), only ten will be included in the first debate based on national polling.
Daniel J. Mitchell:

The Unsung Legacy of an Anti-Poverty Warrior
I often edit better and occasionally think better by keeping a particular person in mind.
Back in the day the Debate Club at my high school was not a particularly popular club to belong to.
Tax Revenue Hits Another Record as Families Struggle
Despite years of superimposed confidence and reassurance from our nations leaders, the American people are still feeling the angst of a sluggish recovery. And the economic meddling of our leaders may have left us worse off than we think.
The Top Five Reasons Teachers Unions Need to Change
Today, union-negotiated employment policies protect mediocre and bad teachers from consequences for abysmal performance and even criminal activities.
Liberalism Has Gone Beyond “Mainstreaming Dumb” To “Mainstreaming Crazy”
If every conservative and moderate in America disappeared tomorrow, liberals would party like they won the Super Bowl.
The Trump Card
With Hillary Clinton's multiple misdeeds coming to light and causing her political problems, reflected in her declining support in the polls, both she and the Democratic Party have reason to be concerned. But both of them may yet be rescued by "The Donald," who can turn out to be their Trump card.
