The Loophole is Obama
It's been reported everywhere --The New York Times, The Washington Post, Fox News -- that the William Wilberforce Sex Trafficking Act requires that any non-Mexican children who show up on our border be admitted and given a hearing. (New York Times, July 7, 2014: "Immigrant Surge Rooted in Law to Curb Child Trafficking.")

Republicans -- Future Versus Past

Victor Davis Hanson:
Obama and the Road Not Taken
The Obama administration often denies any responsibility for the current global chaos or claims that it erupted spontaneously. Yet most of the mess was caused by, or made worse by, growing U.S. indifference and paralysis.
Suicide By Stupidity
?Democrats are getting desperate.
Father of Obamacare Makes a "Speak-O"
Last week, by 2-1 vote, a Washington, D.C., appellate panel ruled that the Obama administration unlawfully changed Obamacare. Meanwhile, on the same day, on the same question, a panel from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the other way. This issue is headed for the Supreme Court.

Massachusetts may be a liberal Democratic stronghold, but these protesters were no fringe phenomenon.
Judge Andrew Napolitano:
Is the President Incompetent or Lawless?
It has been well established under the Constitution and throughout our history that the president's job as the chief federal law enforcement officer permits him to put his ideological stamp on the nature of the work done by the executive branch. The courts have characterized this stamp as "discretion."
Obama's War on Billionaires
What Obama giveth, Obama can take away, and his power—at least in his own mind—recognizes no borders. You know? Except, of course, the border with Mexico which, he assures us, is secure. And the constitution, which he tells us he’s an expert on.

Obama's Playbook: Blame Bush and Then Congress
In June, President Barack Obama sent a letter to Congress asking for help to address the surge of illegal crossings at the Texas-Mexico border.

Administration's Bias Against Israel Obvious
With every word spoken and every roll of his eyes, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry makes it clear that the Obama administration is no fan of Israel. So why is it that media will not call the White House on this major shift in American foreign policy?
Culture Challenge of the Week: Does Marriage Matter to Society?

Bad Policies Are Their Own Worst Enemy
Newspaper editorials rarely make news -- I've been writing them for a long time, and, believe me, I know -- but one did the other day, when The New York Times came out for legalization of marijuana. It was an agreeable development for anyone who, like me, believes in letting people live their own lives, even if they do it badly. But its significance is much bigger than that.

Russian Sanctions Chill Market
Yesterday, the rally faded quickly as Europe ratcheted up sanctions against Russia, with America following suit. Make no mistake, this is a high-stakes gambit; there is no guarantee it works, or how long it would take Russia to cry, “Uncle.”
Ransom Notes Radio:

US Exports "Pollution" to Europe... Does Anyone Care About China?
