Wayne Allyn Root | February 23, 2013

Our fearless leader Obama is just back from a “Swing State”…you know, the kind of place where you work on your golf swing. He was consulting on the economy with Tiger Woods and Butch Harmon. While Michelle was playing in Aspen. You wouldn’t accept this storyline if it was a fictional movie script. Too unrealistic.

John Hawkins | February 23, 2013

For example, one will virtually never hear that the Palmer Raids, Prohibition, or American eugenics were thoroughly progressive phenomena.

John C. Goodman | February 23, 2013

President Obama is said to have made the case for a liberal public policy agenda in his State of the Union speech the other night. But what is liberalism?

Derek Khanna | February 23, 2013

On January 26, 2013, the Librarian of Congress issued a ruling that made it illegal to unlock new phones. Unlocking is a technique to alter the settings on your phone to let you use your phone on a different carrier.

Kathryn Lopez | February 23, 2013

The pope has renounced the papal throne. Long live the progressive pope! Such are the rallying cries from establishment voices wanting to see the Catholic Church loosen up now that Pope Benedict XVI has decided to step down. But maybe people should listen to the Church's actual views.

Paul Greenberg | February 23, 2013

What ever happened to the medium once known as Little Magazines? This country once had a select group of literary and political journals that represented the vanguard of American thought and art. Some were both literary and political. High Culture, it was called when there was still such a thing.

Ed Feulner | February 23, 2013

Say you were a politician, and there was a domestic energy source available that’s clean and abundant. One that has the potential to create new jobs and revitalize local economies. Would you do more to encourage it?

Rich Tucker | February 23, 2013

Scenes from a crisis: “Results of today indicate immediate danger of general national bank panic,” a U.S. senator warned the president. “Government funds should not be drawn upon but should be increased.”

Ransom Notes Radio | February 23, 2013

John Ransom discussed the impacts of high fuel prices, and spoke with Bill Gunderson about various ways to look for opportunity in the market.

Steve Deace | February 23, 2013

Recently a discussion of this story about DC Comics being pressured by homosexual activists to fire one of its writers because he’s on the board of the National Organization of Marriage prompted vigorous debate on my Facebook wall.

Nathan Slaughter | February 23, 2013

If you've ever visited Old Faithful at Yellowstone National Park or taken a hot springs bath, then you understand the basic principle. In the simplest terms, geothermal heat is produced deep in the earth's crust and then carried toward the surface by rising magma, the shifting of tectonic plates and other geologic forces.

Night Watch | February 23, 2013

Mursi's stated intention is to use the elections to quiet protests. A new electoral mandate will give him that power. Protests after Friday prayers should be a good gauge of elite reaction to the content of the law.

Ann-Marie Murrell | February 23, 2013

Fortunately, 9/11 cleared the fog of political O.C.D. from my head. Seeing the ruins of the Twin Towers, I realized that the Democrat Party was very good for nothing.

Bill Tatro | February 23, 2013

As we all fondly remember, Berlusconi is the impish longtime politician who dared to lead a so-called typical Italian lifestyle (at least as portrayed by Federico Fellini) and still be the head of state.

Fri, Feb 22, 2013

Brent Bozell | February 22, 2013

The Obama administration's assault on the Second Amendment in reaction to Newtown is not a serious solution. It's a Band-Aid on cancer. The NRA's call for armed guards in every school also misses the point. When is anyone going to get serious? The problem is violence, a violence of monstrous and horrific proportions that has infected America's popular culture

Ken Blackwell | February 22, 2013

Secretary of State John Kerry chose an interesting place to deliver his first foreign policy address. The former Massachusetts senator spoke at the University of Virginia. He was introduced by the university’s president, Teresa Sullivan. Dr. Sullivan noted that the university’s founder, Thomas Jefferson, had served as the first Secretary of State.

Rich Galen | February 22, 2013

The other day, the President railed against Congressional (read: Republican) inaction on averting the sequester by giving a speech while surrounded by uniformed policemen. The picture was designed to make the point that if the automatic cuts go into effect, people across the country will lose police protection.

Michelle Malkin | February 22, 2013

Here's the latest example of head-splitting cognitive dissonance in Washington: President Obama used his State of the Union address to crusade for a revitalized U.S. manufacturing sector. But while he pays lip service to supporting businesses that build their products on American soil, Obama and his left-wing operatives are hell-bent on driving a key sector of the U.S. manufacturing industry six feet under: the American firearms and ammunition industry.

Mark Davis | February 22, 2013

Something odd happened a few months ago as I weighed the various aspects of the dreaded Sequester Monster, a creature vilified across party lines.

Jonah Goldberg | February 22, 2013

We are just days away from a cataclysm of biblical proportions. The cuts foretold in the Budget Control Act of 2011 are young as far as prophecies go, but apparently they are every bit as terrifying as rivers of blood and plagues of locusts.

David Limbaugh | February 22, 2013

President Obama's demagoguery and fear-mongering on his sequester cuts are breathtaking, even for him. Lest you think I am engaging in hyperbole, let me give you the dictionary definition of a demagogue.

Mona Charen | February 22, 2013

Does it matter that a nominee for secretary of defense doesn't particularly care for American power?

John Ransom | February 22, 2013

It might be a little awkward for a guy with a degree in "political management," like, um, Steve Benen? to support a president who has to campaign by saying “Vote for me: I brought you 23 percent unemployment!” So he makes stuff up. That’s what they teach you in “political management.”

Pat Buchanan | February 22, 2013

In that year of happy memory, 1972, George McGovern, the Democratic nominee, declared he would chop defense by fully one-third.

Suzanne Fields | February 22, 2013

Gender used to tell us about language; now, it describes behavioral roles. The word sex was unambiguous, referring to the natural biological differences. But the genderfication of sex expands to encompass the experiences of the transgendered, lesbian and male homosexuals.

Donald Lambro | February 22, 2013

The White House is still trying to stir up a climate of fear over the looming budget sequester that is not supported by the size of its puny spending cuts.

This irresponsible political strategy is being driven by President Obama in an attempt to convince enough of us that the sequester will shut down critical sectors of the government, endanger our country and possibly plunge the economy into another crisis.

Alan Sears | February 22, 2013

The ultimate objective of the law is to establish the moral code of a community. There’s really no other reason to go to all the trouble of creating a law in the first place if not to ingrain in the minds of a people the idea that certain things are right or wrong.

Tad DeHaven | February 22, 2013

Many of these areas have been covered by Cato’s Downsizing Government website. The following is a “guide” for those who are interested in alternative points of view (and who haven’t already sought refuge in a bunker).

Fritz Pfister | February 22, 2013

The president who is a great speaker and campaigner, but terrible leader is doing one of three things; lying, demagoguing, or setting up congress to blame if the country falls back into recession. Or maybe all three.

Michael F. Cannon | February 22, 2013

There is speculation that Scott made a deal with the Obama administration: he would drop his opposition to the Medicaid expansion in exchange for HHS approving Florida’s plan to put its Medicaid enrollees in managed care plans.

Night Watch | February 22, 2013

The language coming out of Pyongyang seems to have gotten shriller and more petulant. The North is alienating the nations that it must rely on for aid in its economic development plan.

Mark W. Hendrickson | February 22, 2013

A primary meme of the Democratic Party in 2013 is that the federal government doesn’t have a spending problem. That is what President Obama reportedly said to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in their January budget negotiations.

Daniel Pipes | February 22, 2013

Philadelphia, the city where I live, has quietly and unassumedly become the capital of the Western world as regards female Islamic garb as an accessory to crime.

Oliver North | February 22, 2013

Last year, the Obama administration announced to the world that it was planning to pursue a new Asia/Pacific-oriented national security strategy.

Thu, Feb 21, 2013

Cliff May | February 21, 2013

Next month, both President Obama and newly minted secretary of state John Kerry head for the Middle East. They should listen to a range of views, see the sights, and pause to smell the hummus. As for policies, this would be a good time to consider a few adjustments. Below is a briefing — a briefer briefing than they will get from their advisers — on the state of the states, the players in play, and some different approaches to contemplate.

Crystal Wright | February 21, 2013

President Obama is good at spending money and very adroit at blaming Republicans for the many failures of his presidency. Four years under his belt and another four to go and Obama continues the blame game with gusto.

Paul Greenberg | February 21, 2013

The country needed a rousing song, and Kate Smith knew that if anybody could write one, it'd be Irving Berlin. When her manager went to see him, he dusted off an old one he'd written 20 years before, but it didn't seem saleable at the time.

Neal Boortz | February 21, 2013

Sit down. I’m truly sorry about this, but we really need to take another trip into the dark recesses of the liberal mind. A dangerous journey to a world where it is greedy to want to keep your own money, but not to covet the money or property of others; a world where earning 17% of the income, but paying 38% of the income taxes means you’re not paying your fair share; a world where any expression of disagreement with any utterance, no matter how ignorant, from the mouth of someone-not-white makes you a racist.

Todd Starnes | February 21, 2013

The Transportation Security Administration is apparently not content with fondling America’s private parts or administering airport prostate exams. They have now uncovered a more nefarious kind of terror threat – three-year-old girls confined to wheelchairs.

Victor Davis Hanson | February 21, 2013

In his first term President Obama was criticized for trash-talking the one-percenters while enjoying the aristocracy of Martha's Vineyard and the nation's most exclusive golf courses.

Michael Barone | February 21, 2013

One of the interesting things about recent elections is that Republicans have tended to do better the farther you go down the ballot.

Larry Elder | February 21, 2013

President Barack Obama said it recently in Chicago, a city on track for 600 murders this year, the equivalent of two Sandy Hooks per month.

Mike Adams | February 21, 2013

East Carolina University (ECU) has launched a new campaign that attempts to pressure employees to affirm homosexuality despite their religious and moral objections to the lifestyle. Couched in the language of safety and inclusion, the program promises to brand as intolerant those who refuse to accept the university's official position on matters of private sexual morality. This is especially problematic, given that ECU is a public university.

John Ransom | February 21, 2013

"When this really stupid, stupid, stupid sequester goes into effect, we're going to start to feel how this government is really dysfunctional," says Erkine Bowles, president Clinton's former chief of staff. And if Obama thinks he won't get blamed for it, when then he's stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid.

Cal Thomas | February 21, 2013

At the end of 1995 and stretching into January 1996, the federal government "shut down" because of an impasse between President Bill Clinton and House Republicans led by then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | February 21, 2013

The finger pointing and the blame game of Washington gets old, but a messy representative democracy is better than an efficient dictatorship.

Debra J. Saunders | February 21, 2013

If President Barack Obama, the Republican House and the Democratic Senate cannot cut $85 billion from this year's $3.8 trillion budget without laying off first responders, tying up airport security lines and furloughing food safety inspectors, what good are they?

David Harsanyi | February 21, 2013

America is fed up with GOP obstructionism. So undoubtedly, everyone is hopeful that Republicans will allow President Barack Obama's sequestration plans to proceed unhindered. It's only right.

Matt Towery | February 21, 2013

The president, the politicians and the media will work the public and Wall Street into a frenzy, and we will have another of our national panic attacks leading to an eleventh-hour compromise.

Emmett Tyrrell | February 21, 2013

I am indebted to Amity Shlaes for gently correcting a joke of mine that dates back to July 8, 1972. On that date in the New York Times, I joshed that President Calvin Coolidge "probably spent more time napping than any president in the nation's history" and therefore was a successful president.

Steve Chapman | February 21, 2013

President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress want to raise the minimum wage to improve the lot of the working poor. But they've got the wrong idea. The problem is not that these workers earn so little; it's that the things they buy cost so much. I propose instead to outlaw high prices

Bill Tatro | February 21, 2013

I must admit there are days when I just feel like giving it all up as I contemplate depositing my money in the bank, but a Ben Bernanke induced 0.10% interest-rate doesn’t excite me whatsoever.

Michael Schaus | February 21, 2013

If this guy is right about Bernanke and government spending, I suggest we petition the government for the right to print our own income. I could use a little QE in my personal life.

Jerry Newcombe | February 21, 2013

Currently in the theaters is the movie, Safe Haven, based on the book by Nicholas Sparks. In the book, the bad guy goes around quoting Scripture.

Christopher Prandoni | February 21, 2013

President Obama has a new plan to avoid sequestration: kill private sector jobs. In 2011 Republicans required spending cuts to raise the debt ceiling. President Obama suggested that, in addition to freezing spending levels, broad-based spending cuts be implemented on March 1, 2013 via sequester.

Morgan Brittany | February 21, 2013

If the sequester goes into effect, the spending cuts will be a drop in the bucket toward solving the real problem. What Washington needs to do is “man-up” for once and take some of the suggestions from Simpson-Bowles and put them into action. After all, Obama appointed them to come up with a solution.

Wed, Feb 20, 2013

Larry Kudlow | February 20, 2013

Looking at the sequester in it's true light, it’s clear that it won’t result in economic Armageddon. In fact, I’ll make the case that any spending relief is actually pro-growth.

Michael Reagan | February 20, 2013

Though the stalled Obama Economy has caused about 900,000 to go home since 2007, there are still about 6 million Mexicans living in the United States who've sneaked across our borders.

Ann Coulter | February 20, 2013

Don't anyone tell Marco Rubio, John McCain or Jeff Flake that nearly 80 percent of Hindus voted for Obama, or who knows what they'll come up with.

Tony Katz | February 20, 2013

Somewhere a dentist is missing his laughing gas. Because the absolute hysteria of the American Left Intelligentsia on guns has now reached a new level of laughable.

Rich Galen | February 20, 2013

The latest projectile-sweat-producing event in Our Nation's Capital is the looming automatic cuts in the federal budget known as "sequestration."

Michelle Malkin | February 20, 2013

If radical gun-grabbers have their way, your daughters, mothers and grandmothers will have nothing but whistles, pens and bodily fluids to defend themselves against violent attackers and sexual predators.

John Stossel | February 20, 2013

President Obama has new priorities. That means new spending.

Walter E. Williams | February 20, 2013

In his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama proposed raising the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $9 an hour. That would be almost a 25 percent increase. Let's look at the president's proposal, but before doing so, let's ask some other economic questions.

Walter E. Williams | February 20, 2013

Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" has been a box-office hit and nominated for 12 Academy Awards, including best picture, best director and best actor for Daniel Day-Lewis, who portrayed our 16th president.

Todd Starnes | February 20, 2013

Does NBC hate Christians?

Brent Bozell | February 20, 2013

At what point will the public tire of liberal journalists lamenting that the Republican Party is overwhelmingly white and thrilled about it? They've been drawing that cartoon so long surely they'll eventually run out of ink. They love their 2012 narrative that every non-white group is rushing to Obama and the left, and they want to keep it that way.

Jonah Goldberg | February 20, 2013

"We need to buy a movie studio."

Mike Adams | February 20, 2013

Last week, after returning from an interview on a network that makes liberals cringe, I came home to an inbox full of emails. Usually, when I come home to a full inbox, it’s because a professor has done something stupid and people want me to write about it. This was no exception. A professor at West Liberty University had banned Fox News as a source and told her students that the "biased" station makes her "cringe." That kind of thinking is common among professors. But few professors are stupid enough to reveal it in a syllabus.

Bob Barr | February 20, 2013

Firearms manufacturers usually find themselves playing defense. Following virtually every highly publicized incident involving a multiple shooting, manufactures often are among the first round of scapegoats flogged by the mainstream media and gun-control politicians.

Terry Jeffrey | February 20, 2013

The ultimate purpose of the U.S. military is simple: Defend the God-given liberty of Americans. Yet today we have a president who is using his power as commander in chief to wage war against the moral truth that makes liberty possible.

Ben Shapiro | February 20, 2013

Over President's Day weekend, President Barack Obama took off for a mini-vacation in Florida. There, he participated in golf lessons with professional coach Butch Harmon -- Harmon normally charges $1,000 per hour, and Obama spent 8 hours with him -- and then he took to the links with disgraced golf icon Tiger Woods. The press was not allowed to cover any of this first-hand.

Austin Bay | February 20, 2013

February 2013 has been a very bad month for Iranian-sponsored terrorism.

Paul Greenberg | February 20, 2013

In the course of human events, one thing remains certain: We forget. Somewhere over murky time, Washington's Birthday faded away, and was absorbed into another three-day holiday with no distinguishing marks except maybe ... Giant Sales!

Donald Lambro | February 20, 2013

Brace yourselves for higher medical insurance costs that will hit young and old alike as a result of President Obama's nationalized health-care mandates.

Jacob Sullum | February 20, 2013

In her most recent report to Congress, National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson notes that "tax expenditures" -- the exclusions, exemptions, deductions and credits that make the Internal Revenue Code such a bloated, bewildering behemoth -- total more than $1 trillion a year.

Kyle Olson | February 20, 2013

It’s no secret government schools have put President Obama on a pedestal unlike any other national leader.

Susan Stamper Brown | February 20, 2013

If there's one thing I've learned, there's no shortage of well-meaning people who want the world to be a better place. But, without the willingness to roll up your sleeves and be part of the solution, you run the risk of making the situation worse.

George Friedman | February 20, 2013

Airstrikes by unmanned aerial vehicles have become a matter of serious dispute lately. The controversy focuses on the United States, which has the biggest fleet of these weapons and which employs them more frequently than any other country.

Night Watch | February 20, 2013

A Japanese news outlet has reported that Iranian scientists were likely present when North Korea conducted nuclear test on 12 February, according to an unidentified Western source.

Ralph Benko | February 20, 2013

China appears to be on the verge of closing, or, at minimum, seriously reforming its 350 forced labor camps, together with injecting due process into its system. It is an historic development, one under-reported in the mainstream Western media.

Ken Connor | February 20, 2013

When you hear the name Southern Poverty Law Center, it immediately evokes images of Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Freedom Rides... all iconic symbols of the civil rights movement. And rightly so, for these are the events that inspired it’s founding.

Tue, Feb 19, 2013

Byron York | February 19, 2013

A brief moment on February 13 showed why President Obama can't win when it comes to the Keystone XL pipeline. In front of the White House, protesters led by actress Daryl Hannah and the head of the Sierra Club demanded that Obama kill the project. Just a few blocks away, the head of the AFL-CIO's powerful Building and Construction Trades Department joined with the American Petroleum Institute to demand that Obama approve it.

Michael Brown | February 19, 2013

According to a major study carried out by a New Zealand university over a period of more than 20 years, “Children who watch excessive amounts of television are more likely to have criminal convictions and show aggressive personality traits as adults.” Is that really a surprise?

Brian and Garrett Fahy | February 19, 2013

War is uncertain, complicated and political. President Obama claims to be none of those. Thus, his military escapades share none of the characteristics of successful wars of past presidents.

Rachel Marsden | February 19, 2013

U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced last week that the Pentagon has created a new military award for keyboard cyber-warriors and drone joystick jockeys.

Paul Kengor | February 19, 2013

February is the month of presidents. It includes Washington’s birthday, Lincoln’s birthday, Ronald Reagan’s birthday, and, of course, Presidents Day. Given that I teach and write about presidents, this time of year always prompts me to strange musings.

John Hawkins | February 19, 2013

The only answer anyone ever seems to be able to offer to that question these days is, "Because the Democrats are worse." However, the problem with being the lesser of two evils is that you're still an evil.

Chuck Norris | February 19, 2013

Many conservatives point to great modern men and leaders, such as Ronald Reagan, as models we can follow, and I concur with their sentiments. But I think the best leaders lived long ago, during the founding of our republic, away from the limelight and luster of today's politics and Washington drama.

John Ransom | February 19, 2013

I find it hard to believe that 35,000-40,000 global warming activists, who by all rights should not have winter gear- they shouldn’t have it, nor should they be allowed to have it- showed up over the weekend in frigid DC to protest…um…something.

Mona Charen | February 19, 2013

Seized by some peculiar muse (clearly one with a sense of humor), I have undertaken to learn the cello in middle age.

Cal Thomas | February 19, 2013

Just as Lenin's body remains on public display in Russia, because one never knows when he might be useful to rally the masses, so, too, does the ghost (but thankfully not the body) of the late Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis.) remain a useful symbol for Democrats in Washington.

Pat Buchanan | February 19, 2013

"It is our generation's task, then, to reignite the true engine of America's economic growth -- a rising, thriving middle class."

Scottie Hughes | February 19, 2013

Why should the Republicans we've elected stand up to cut spending and cut Government when the base is not willing to do the same?

Paul Greenberg | February 19, 2013

Not since the eminently forgettable and now justly forgotten Louis A. Johnson was chosen to dismantle the country's military budget after the Second World War -- just in time to leave this country woefully unprepared for the Korean one -- has a nominee for secretary of defense represented so clear and present a danger to the national security.

Bill Murchison | February 19, 2013

If political success equates with how often you drive The New York Times nuts, the freshly minted junior senator from Texas could be bound for some conservative Rushmore.

Robert Knight | February 19, 2013

What’s the real message behind Barack Obama’s call in his State of the Union speech for taxpayer-funded “universal” preschool and his trip to a Georgia preschool last Thursday for photo ops?

Marvin Olasky | February 19, 2013

Fifteen years ago, after special prosecutor Ken Starr questioned President Bill Clinton about his involvement with Monica Lewinsky, Starr—overcome with a “sense of gloom”—shambled into his Virginia home, collapsed into bed, and asked himself, “How could a sensible and sane government come to this?”

Doug Napier | February 19, 2013

Recently, Steven Spielberg released his award-winning film Lincoln. In one scene, Lincoln saunters into the War Room and has one of those conversations, mixing philosophy with his thoughtful wit, with two young men.

Night Watch | February 19, 2013

According to an unidentified source, North Korea has informed China that it will conduct additional nuclear tests and missile launches this year. Preparations for a fourth nuclear test are said to be completed already.

Tad DeHaven | February 19, 2013

Fahrenthold’s piece is a good reminder of how unserious politicians from both parties are about cutting spending. But I want to make two additional points.

Thomas Sowell | February 19, 2013

A nation's choice between spending on military defense and spending on civilian goods has often been posed as "guns versus butter."

Mon, Feb 18, 2013

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | February 18, 2013

Homosexual activists achieved historic gains in the November 2012 election in the states of Washington, Maine and Maryland. These three notoriously liberal states passed laws extending marriage benefits to homosexual relationships by four to six percentage points. But will these legal victories ultimately deny them the sweeping Supreme Court decision they long for?

Kurt Schlichter | February 18, 2013

The grotesque spectacle of the State of the Union address, with its lengthy receiving line of adoring sycophants, demonstrates why the President is operating under the delusion that he is more than just our President. Like him, many people seem to fundamentally misunderstand his role.

Star Parker | February 18, 2013

According to Cal Thomas, well-known nationally syndicated columnist, Dr. Ben Carson owes President Obama an apology.

John Ransom | February 18, 2013

Yes, I understand “Krystal Ball” is her real name, but there are cool real names- like Johnny Ransom- and ones that make you sound like a stripper, like, um Krystal Ball.

Katie Kieffer | February 18, 2013

You are a reality star. You might think no one sees you in your fenced-in backyard grilling hamburgers in your boxer shorts. But government drones equipped with HD cameras are filming a new reality show starring you: “Drone Dynasty.”

Bruce Bialosky | February 18, 2013

The other day a group of us were at a restaurant. All of a sudden there was a child stomping his feet and stating he was not going to do what he was told.

Dan Holler | February 18, 2013

Of course President Obama does not hate poor people, nor does the most avid tea partier. Few (if any) policies are intended to harm the poor; in fact, most policies are intended help the poor. Unfortunately, good intentions do not always equal good results; such is the case with minimum wage.

Matt Barber | February 18, 2013

The term “moronic” is defined as “notably stupid or lacking in good judgment.” It is frequently used as an insult.

Shawn Mitchell | February 18, 2013

Americans have every reason to believe their preschoolers will be in good hands. We are dazzled by the progress of the last four years. It stands to reason we’ll be positively staggered by what he can show the next generation.

Marita Noon | February 18, 2013

Energy consumption and economic growth go hand-in-hand. A successful country uses more energy, not less. But it's understandable why Obama gets confused over it.

Chris Edwards | February 18, 2013

Economic research has only a tenuous relationship to economic policymaking in Washington. President Obama’s new proposal to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9.00 is a case in point.

Tad DeHaven | February 18, 2013

Not surprisingly, special interests have been more than willing to assist reporters in spreading the doom and gloom.

Michael Barone | February 18, 2013

Barack Obama has said that he wants to help Democrats win back a majority in the House of Representatives. He says he looks forward to Nancy Pelosi being speaker again.

Sun, Feb 17, 2013

Paul Jacob | February 17, 2013

Raise the minimum wage. See what happens. No, I mean raise it an appreciable amount.

Doug Giles | February 17, 2013

Nothing really stuns me anymore about the Left and their lunacy. That was until this week when soulless Columbia professor Mark Lamont Hill appeared on CNN and got giddy about cop killer Chris Dorner.

Derek Hunter | February 17, 2013

Turns out the New York Times is worried about the future of the Republican Party. So concerned, in fact, it has dedicated more than 6,000 words in this week’s magazine to explore, as the title puts it, “Can The Republicans Be Saved From Obsolescence?”

John Ransom | February 17, 2013

If you are going to accuse someone of being a pompous demagogue, and "ignoring the main body of intellectual knowledge," you really ought to at least know how to spell “demagog” correctly.

Austin Hill | February 17, 2013

In the 1940’s and 50’s, famed Author George Orwell surmised that both the English language and civilized society were in decline.

Steve Chapman | February 17, 2013

The old definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result. The new definition, which applies only in the case of North Korea, is: doing something different and expecting a different result.

Kevin McCullough | February 17, 2013

Critics of a free market economy are also critics of individual responsibility. Because they believe in higher taxes, centralized control, and absolute intolerance to other viewpoints, they find themselves reducing free market ideas to that of human flatulence.

Tom Tancredo | February 17, 2013

There has not even been amnesty bill introduced yet in the US Senate, and already, key Republican members of the “Gang of Eight” are panicking. An old saying in politics is, if you’re losing an argument, change the subject.

Stewart Scott | February 17, 2013

The attack on the U.S. diplomatic office in Benghazi and the killing of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens led to months of media coverage that has included televised congressional hearings and fierce partisan and bureaucratic squabbles in the media. It was the terrorist equivalent of winning the lottery.

Shannon Goessling | February 17, 2013
