John Hawkins | August 24, 2013

Contrary to what you hear from liberals, the biggest flaw conservatives have is being overly tolerant. Really? Seriously? We're "overly tolerant?"

John Ransom | August 24, 2013

In a way the GDP numbers epitomizes Obama’s economic philosophy: He’s managed to squeeze a whole year’s worth of economic activity into five years and counting.

Ken Blackwell | August 24, 2013

The problems continue at President Obama's Environmental Protection Agency. Under fire for their leadership using private email addresses to illegally conduct official business and enacting new regulations through coordinated lawsuit settlements with outside environmental groups, the EPA shows no sign of slowing down in Obama's second term.

Rich Tucker | August 24, 2013

NASA is between a rock and a hard place. Or, to be more correct, it’s in a hard place, because it cannot find a rock.

Jeff Crouere | August 24, 2013

It is really amazing what our federal government will tolerate from their employees. At the IRS, Lois Lerner is currently enjoying a paid leave of absence from her position as Director of Exempt Organizations. Amazingly, it gets worse.

Steve Deace | August 24, 2013

As Dan Patrick used to famously say on SportsCenter back in the day you cannot stop Mitt Romney—you can only hope to contain him.

Bill Tatro | August 24, 2013

It appears that if you can’t compete successfully, the only answer is to bend the rules, break the rules, or even change the rules.

Daniel J. Mitchell | August 24, 2013

Early this year, I took a libertarian purity test put together by Professor Bryan Caplan at George Mason University. The good news is that I got a 94. Sounds like a solid A, right? The maximum grade was 160, so it seems I’m just a big-government squish!

Night Watch | August 24, 2013

Pakistan denies that it is provoking India, but its soldiers are getting killed and Pakistan Army units are not retaliating against India, which would be the normal counter-reaction.

Fritz Pfister | August 24, 2013

Friday, President Obama said Republicans are spending too much time trying to repeal Obamacare, adding "that won’t create jobs, that won’t help the middle class, and that won’t build ladders to the middle class."

Larry Kudlow | August 24, 2013

When it comes to Fed policy, one of the hottest topics on Wall Street is the next Fed chair. Who will replace Ben Bernanke? And believe it or not, Timothy Geithner’s name may be resurfacing. Is it possible that the former Treasury secretary will come to the rescue of a leaderless and hopelessly divided central bank that has no real clue where it’s going or how fast it should get there?

Ransom Notes Radio | August 24, 2013

Brent Littlefield joined Ransom Notes Radio to discuss the prospects of a conservative or Republican victory in the next batch of elections. . . Oh, and it is Friday. . . So, yeah, Ezra Klein is still an idiot.

Crista Huff | August 24, 2013

After streamlining the company, but lacking visionary leadership, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced today that he will retire within 12 months.

Larry Kudlow | August 24, 2013

A nod his way could end the Fed-choice bloodbath.

Charles Payne | August 24, 2013

We're still not sure if it was a fat finger trade, a terrorist attack, poor plumbing or an attempt to stop massive selling in a household name, but the flash freeze that halted trading in NASDAQ stocks was just another wacky reason for people to not have confidence in the market.

Mike Shedlock | August 24, 2013

It should not be surprising to discover confidence in the economy has slipped along with availability of jobs given a huge rise in polled unemployment.

Fri, Aug 23, 2013

Rich Galen | August 23, 2013

As you know, I am a fan of Hillary Clinton, but I do not think she will be the next President of the United States.

Hugh Hewitt | August 23, 2013

The use of chemical weapons against hundreds if not thousands of civilians in Syria and the burning of scores of Christian churches in Egypt raises the central question of our time: Will America stand by and allow pure evil to kill thousands on the basis of ethnic and religious identification?

Michelle Malkin | August 23, 2013

Busted. Stone-cold busted. Just as I suspected, "progressive" pranksters at Oberlin College have been definitively unmasked as the perpetrators of phony campus "hate crimes" that scored international headlines in March.

Mark Davis | August 23, 2013

Okay, I’m kidding. Sort of. Am I?

Michael Barone | August 23, 2013

New York City seems on the verge of making the same mistake that Detroit made 40 years ago. The mistake is to abolish the NYPD practice referred to as stop and frisk.

Jonah Goldberg | August 23, 2013

"Why do they seem so determined to also make it racial?"

David Limbaugh | August 23, 2013

Mark Levin is a modern-day constitutional prophet whose purpose is not to revamp the Constitution. It is to revive it and refurbish it -- to restore the cracks in its foundation caused by lawless officials through the years who were more interested in guaranteeing outcomes than they were liberty.

Mona Charen | August 23, 2013

Buried in a New York Times story about the economy was this arresting statistic: Median family income for black Americans has declined a whopping 10.9 percent during the Obama administration.

John Ransom | August 23, 2013

Whatever else Obama studied at Accidental University, it wasn’t economics.

Pat Buchanan | August 23, 2013

Last Friday, Christopher Lane, a 22-year-old Australian here on a baseball scholarship, was shot and killed while jogging in Duncan, Okla., population 23,000. He died where he fell.

Suzanne Fields | August 23, 2013

August, despite its heat and humidity, isn't cruel like April, but it taps deeper into melancholy. The days grow shorter, sunlight becomes less intense, and shadows lengthen, shading the edges of experience. Summer begins to feel like Sunday night.

Diana West | August 23, 2013

"Al-Jazeera America": The very name gives me the heebie-jeebies. What does Al-Jazeera have to do with America?

Humberto Fontova | August 23, 2013

Much of what’s called “McCarthyism” started with the debate over “Who Lost China.” A similar debate regarding Cuba-- and involving an amazingly similar cast of protagonists and antagonists—erupted when Fidel Castro came out of the closet in late 1960 as a Communist.

Linda Chavez | August 23, 2013

Bradley Manning, the Army private who was sentenced to 35 years in prison for disclosing highly damaging national intelligence, now wants to live the rest of his life as a woman.

Matt Towery | August 23, 2013

Yes, I am, like many, outraged over the NSA snooping into private phone calls and Internet communications. I even asked myself, "Who do they think they are, God?"

Paul Greenberg | August 23, 2013

What a difference a publisher can make. Like the difference between a publication that's going down fast and one that's back on its feet and showing every sign of life. And maybe becoming not just a magazine but an institution, one that reflects the literary tradition -- as well as the music and art -- of a whole distinctive American region, like the South.

Donald Lambro | August 23, 2013

WASHINGTON -- Barack Obama continues to tell us that the quality of our lives and our economy have improved, when all the available evidence shows they have not. In fact, they've grown worse under his policies.

Donald Lambro | August 23, 2013

Obama is to blame, lock, stock and barrel, for the economic pain millions of Americans are going through. It all stems from his anti-growth policies which have given us higher taxes, oppressive gas prices, crushing federal debt, and unending economic uncertainty and costly regulatory obstacles that have paralyzed our economy.

Fritz Pfister | August 23, 2013

Now comes indoctrination through government programs compliments of a lawless Obama administration. The Imperial president rewrites settled law without a peep from the purported caretakers of the people, the media.

Crista Huff | August 23, 2013

Sears’ shares are down 21% since the last quarterly report, when we emphatically told investors to sell. We reiterate: Shareholders who expect their Sears investments to grow are out of their minds.

Ransom Notes Radio | August 23, 2013

Romina Boccia, from Heritage, joined the program to discuss Social Security's 78th birthday. Also: Elbert Guillory is now heading up a PAC for conservative African-Americans.

Charles Payne | August 23, 2013

The Dow suffers its first six day losing streak of the year as seesaw trading gave way to a late selloff. Once again there was no sense of panic, but the absence of buyers was magnified and selling begat selling.

Mike Shedlock | August 23, 2013

The struggle for growth applies to nearly every country on the planet for a multitude of reasons.

Lincoln Brown | August 23, 2013

A number of liberal groups and churches are pushing a national walk-out off fast-food employees to demand that the minimum wage be upped to $15 an hour. They seem not to care, however, about Illinois hiring people at $9 per hour to enroll citizens in Obamacare.

Michael Schaus | August 23, 2013

The President is talking to students this week about the growing cost of higher education. Of course, under this President, student debt has surpassed a trillion dollars. Hooray for massive debt after graduating into one of the worst jobs markets since the great depression!

Daniel J. Mitchell | August 23, 2013

As evidenced by my political cartoon contest, I’m a big fan of that form of satire.

Roger Schlesinger | August 23, 2013

This Government for some reason – which, in my opinion, is none of their business – believes everyone should be equal in everything.

Thu, Aug 22, 2013

Todd Starnes | August 22, 2013

The New Mexico Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a Christian photographer who declined to photograph a same-sex union violated the state’s Human Rights Act and one justice warned the photographers were “compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives.”

Cliff May | August 22, 2013

A great and historic upheaval is taking place not just in Egypt but throughout the Muslim world.

Daniel Pipes | August 22, 2013

It's a privilege to be an American who works on foreign policy, as I have done since the late 1970s, participating in a small way in the grand project of finding my country's place in the world.

Michael Reagan | August 22, 2013

There you go again, Hollywood. You’ve taken a great story about a real person and real events and twisted it into a bunch of lies.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | August 22, 2013

In the end, the American people want a government that works for them, that gets things done and projects an aura of possibility and potential. Let's hope it passes the test.

Victor Davis Hanson | August 22, 2013

Two quite different 21st-century Americas are emerging. The nation is not so much divided by "wars" between the rich and poor, men and women, or white and non-white. Instead, there is the world of reality versus that of triviality.

Larry Elder | August 22, 2013

Given the choice between having a Marine Corps of 5,000 whites and 500,000 blacks, then-Marine Corps Commandant Lt. Gen. Thomas Holcomb said he would much rather have the whites.

Mike Adams | August 22, 2013

Dear Chancellor Miller: On May 9, you announced that you were initiating a process to "rethink" our university's approach to diversity and inclusion.

John Ransom | August 22, 2013

Looming over the economy, like a menacing storm—a storm created by the great gobs of hot air that always seem to follow him-- is your Dear Leader who wants us to adopt another of his can’t-miss, sure-fire 5-Year Plans.

Ken Blackwell | August 22, 2013

Congress needs to reassert itself and make its ban on government-sponsored Internet gambling explicit, taking back control and oversight over trade and commerce in the process

Cal Thomas | August 22, 2013

PORTSTEWART, Northern Ireland -- Each visit to the U.K. brings new horror stories about the National Health Service (NHS).

Debra J. Saunders | August 22, 2013

Like another erstwhile freshman senator, named Barack Obama, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, blew into Washington and promptly began eyeing the Oval Office.

Steve Chapman | August 22, 2013

The United States has been providing aid to the Egyptian government for decades, and we have gotten a solid return on the investment. It has bought the U.S. government a lifetime supply of deaf ears.

Emmett Tyrrell | August 22, 2013

Maybe Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki of Iraq should not have been in such a hurry to bid American troops adieu as he was back in 2007.

Kyle Olson | August 22, 2013

The radical attack group Media Matters obviously didn’t get a copy of the White House Common Core talking points.

Charles Payne | August 22, 2013

It didn't get much fanfare but there was a story about France and its plans for the "Third Industrial Revolution" that will result in a halcyon nation of zero unemployment through the next leap of machine capabilities and intelligence promises.

Night Watch | August 22, 2013

NightWatch has observed during the last 12 years that anti-terrorist initiatives have seldom targeted recruitment and indoctrination of youth in the processes of terrorism.

Daniel J. Mitchell | August 22, 2013

Economists are lousy forecasters. To be more specific, economists are no better than fortune tellers when trying to make short-run macroeconomic forecasts.

Bob Goldman | August 22, 2013

It used to be that you criticized people at work for being "holier than thou." Now, the most stinging criticism you can make about a co-worker is that they're "happier than thou."

Crista Huff | August 22, 2013

In direct contrast to government claims that Obamacare will make health insurance more affordable to individuals and employers, UPS is planning to drop 15,000 spouses from healthcare coverage in 2014 due to increased costs.

Ransom Notes Radio | August 22, 2013

Welfare or work? Increasingly it is becoming clear that work is hard, boring, and not always as rewarding as getting a check in the mail from your Uncle Sam. Michael Tanner joined the program to discuss the perverse incentives found in America’s welfare programs.

Marita Noon | August 22, 2013

The final State Department report on the Keystone XL pipeline’s environmental impact is expected in a matter of weeks. Yet, the administration continues to send mixed messages as to which direction it is leaning.

Mike Shedlock | August 22, 2013

The moral of the story is simple: inflation does not cure problems it only masks them temporarily, for the benefit of those with first access to money.

Michael Schaus | August 22, 2013

And thus the wheels of uncaring bureaucracy kicked into gear, by sending small businesses letters highlighting the massive amount of retroactive taxes due to state coffers for tax breaks the state offered years ago.

Jerry Newcombe | August 22, 2013

Right now Christians are unfairly being made the scapegoat by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, since Morsi was ousted from power last month.

Jack Kerwick | August 22, 2013

Last week, I wrote an article in which I argued that unless the Republican Party begins to take stock of the ever growing discontent among its conservative base, it will, deservedly, be a loser in perpetuity.

Bill Tatro | August 22, 2013

Since most of the houses sold in the past year have been “all-cash” transactions, combined with the fact that mortgage applications have fallen off the cliff, I have to ask if that means that the average person is no longer a buyer.

Bob Goldman | August 22, 2013

Ann Coulter | August 21, 2013

I didn't care for the "Arab Spring," but the "Arab Summer" is a blockbuster!

Ben Shapiro | August 21, 2013

With the Egyptian military killing Muslim Brotherhood in the streets and Muslim Brotherhood members burning down churches and parading nuns through those same streets, President Barack Obama took to the microphone from a golf course in Martha's Vineyard to clarify America's perspective.

Todd Starnes | August 21, 2013

The patriarch of the Duck Dynasty family is creating a national stir after a 2010 video surfaced of him delivering a sermon at a Pennsylvania church condemning the debate over “whether it’s right or wrong to rip you out of your mother’s womb.”

Rich Galen | August 21, 2013

August. The silly season. When events that would never even be covered during the other 11 months of the year (the other 3 months if you're counting by Congressional work days) get a spinning police light on Drudge, are featured on Google News, and trend on Twitter.

Michelle Malkin | August 21, 2013

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus had a message last week for outspoken conservatives who support strict immigration enforcement policies: Shut up.

John Stossel | August 21, 2013

We need police to catch murderers, thieves and con men, and so we give them special power -- the power to use force on others.

Walter E. Williams | August 21, 2013

Sometimes I wonder when black people will reject the patronizing insults of white progressives and their black handmaidens.

Jonah Goldberg | August 21, 2013

Not counting rumors that Anthony Weiner's marriage has hit a rocky patch, it may be the worst-kept secret in politics: Joe Biden wants to be president.

Bob Barr | August 21, 2013

As more and more information is revealed, it becomes ever clearer how little we actually know about the NSA’s surveillance of U.S. citizens.

Barney Brenner | August 21, 2013

It’s long been evident that Congress has no intention of curbing its profligate spending. Despite racing 90 mph in the wrong direction, instead of reversing course, their meager budget reductions are the equivalent of simply slowing to 70.

Terry Jeffrey | August 21, 2013

When the despotic King Herod plotted to kill Jesus by sending his agents to slaughter every boy under the age of 2 in and around Bethlehem, an angel appeared to Joseph and told him, "Get up, take the child and his mother, and escape to Egypt."

Austin Bay | August 21, 2013

Egyptians boast that they possess the world's longest continuously recorded history. Among scholars, the boast spurs lively debate.

Paul Greenberg | August 21, 2013

Calm down. Yes, a great newspaper, The Washington Post, is changing hands.

Donald Lambro | August 21, 2013

Saudi Arabia's surprising decision to support Egypt's military leaders in their bloody crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood has split the Arab world in two.

Jacob Sullum | August 21, 2013

Crossing the West Thomas Street Overpass into Seattle's Myrtle Edwards Park on Friday afternoon, I hear a guy remark, "Next year, I'll be turning 23, and so will Hempfest!"

Daniel J. Mitchell | August 21, 2013

A map put together by a pro-statism organization supposedly shows that welfare benefits are not sufficiently generous to lift people out of poverty. My gut instinct was to reject the findings.

Crista Huff | August 21, 2013

On the heels of arrests in a derivatives scandal, and a new Chinese bribery investigation, JPMorgan Chase is now under investigation for possible manipulation of energy markets.

Ralph Benko | August 21, 2013

There is a little-known “emergency cord” built into the Constitution by the Founders. Find it in Article V. It allows for the States, rather than just the Congress, to propose Constitutional amendments. It is obscure yet entirely legitimate — and invaluable.

Mike Shedlock | August 21, 2013

Yellen has all but guaranteed she will keep the money flowing faster than Bernanke, and coupled with the above warning from Obama about asset bubbles, the odds shift heavily towards Tweedle-Dum as Obama's choice.

Peter Schiff | August 21, 2013

Albert Einstein, a man who knew a thing or two about celestial mechanics, supposedly once called compound interest "the most powerful force in the universe."

Night Watch | August 21, 2013

Nearly every mainstream US press outlet referred to Egypt as sinking into chaos or experiencing spiraling violence and turmoil, to mention only three descriptions.

Michael Schaus | August 21, 2013

Yes, the organization that closed their Staten Island office because of bad weather after Tropical Storm Sandy, is now providing helpful suggestions for emergency preparedness.

Ken Connor | August 21, 2013

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last month or so, chances are you've heard the latest revelations regarding the NSA's unlawful invasion of American citizens' privacy.

Ransom Notes Radio | August 21, 2013

If you want something to fail, or you want a problem to get worse, have this President give it his full attention. Bill Tatro joined the program to discuss the big-economic-picture in the age of Obama.

Charles Payne | August 21, 2013

Last week retailers spooked the market with earnings misses and extreme near-term caution, reflecting an economy of uncertainty, higher taxes, and slow to retreating incomes.

Tue, Aug 20, 2013

Rachel Marsden | August 20, 2013

President Obama has demonstrated leadership qualities ranging from poor to nonexistent. But is a president who lacks visible leadership qualities really such a bad thing? Or is he lazy like a fox?

Todd Starnes | August 20, 2013

An airman who was relieved of his duties after he told his commanding officer that he could not support gay marriage has filed a formal complaint with the military alleging he is the victim of religious discrimination.

Michael Brown | August 20, 2013

Despite his "concerns about [the] government limiting parental choice on the care and treatment of their own children," Governor Chris Christie signed into law a ban on ex-gay therapy for minors, thereby committing an outrageous act against both the people of New Jersey and his own Catholic faith.

Thomas Sowell | August 20, 2013

Nothing symbolizes the Utopianism of our times like both liberals and some conservatives calling for us to cut off aid to the Egyptian military, because of the widespread killings in what is becoming a civil war in Egypt. Such utter lack of realism from the left is not new, but hearing some conservatives saying the same things takes some getting used to.

Chuck Norris | August 20, 2013

A few weeks ago in Part 1, I finished by discussing how Thomas Jefferson distinguished the U.S. from other countries in asking, "What but education has advanced us beyond the condition of our indigenous neighbors?" But is today's public education system what he and other Founding Fathers were imagining it could be back then?

John Hawkins | August 20, 2013

Barack Obama came into office and ironically, dissent isn't so patriotic anymore.

Michael Barone | August 20, 2013

Federal highway bills served America well for many years. But it's time to move on.

David Limbaugh | August 20, 2013

What will it take for the country to wake up to the destructive ravages of liberalism -- and finally do something about them?

Erik Telford | August 20, 2013

Although the conversation on immigration reform tends to unfold in terms of border security, enforcement of laws, and pathways to citizenship – there is one critical aspect this debate that has failed to break through all of the other noise. Immigration reform could help the economy grow--if done the right way.

John Ransom | August 20, 2013

Foreign policy for a great American nation, he should know, is not made on the slights, animosities and centuries-old grudges that Obama seems to trade on like money.

Mona Charen | August 20, 2013

In Duck Soup, one of the stuffy characters responds to Groucho's raillery with the protest: "I didn't come here to be insulted!" to which Groucho quips "Oh really? Where do you usually go?"

It was an atypical August summer day in Washington, D.C., 50 years ago next week.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid finally admitted that ObamaCare is just a step towards a fully government run single-payer health care system.

Debra J. Saunders | August 20, 2013

Everyone has a theory as to why former congressman and not-so-former tweeter Anthony Weiner is running for New York mayor.

Phyllis Schlafly | August 20, 2013

Governor Pat McCrory just signed a law requiring voters to show a valid photo ID for voting, prohibiting same-day registration and reducing the number of days for early voting from 17 to 10.

Bill Murchison | August 20, 2013

The world was never in better shape than when the British Empire was in full flower. So on from one abiding truth to another: Things never go well unless and until the good guys and the top dogs are one and the same.

Rebecca Hagelin | August 20, 2013

Parents, don’t let your sense of competition outshine your child’s. Make sure your child notices you in the stands only because you are cheering loudly for whole team, as well as for your child.

Marvin Olasky | August 20, 2013

Past economic mistakes are lessons for the future—but only if we heed them

Ransom Notes Radio | August 20, 2013

Dr. Ben Carson joined the program to discuss the dangers of Obamacare. Ransom also talks about Barack Obama’s sudden focus on economic matters. (Oh, and should we be worrying about another recession?)

Bill Tatro | August 20, 2013

This past weekend, my neighbor George stopped at the local Hess gas station in order to fuel-up his full-size SUV — an expensive endeavor that George ultimately complained about again and again.

Bob Beauprez | August 20, 2013

Article 2, Sec. 3 of the Constitution charges the President "shall take care that the Laws be faithfully executed." It doesn't say that he "should" execute the laws of the United States; it uses the imperative "shall."

Night Watch | August 20, 2013

The numbers of killed and wounded indicate the Brotherhood has sacrificed thousands of its most dedicated activists in futile protests and attacks.

Roger Schlesinger | August 20, 2013

In this crazy world we live in what is good for one person doesn't work at all for another. Have both of these people write about the best thing, and the worst thing, and you will get a glimpse of reality.

Joy Pullman | August 20, 2013

U.S. politicians love to slap children’s faces onto their pet projects to manipulate voters, but such projects usually portend a full beating for the rising generation. Put simply, Americans have sold their kids into debt slavery, in a remarkable reversal of the American Dream.

Crystal Wright | August 20, 2013

You’d think the Republican Party won the 2012 presidential election, the way Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus is carrying on about CNN and NBC airing Hillary Clinton movies.

Kellie Fiedorek | August 20, 2013

Now on the heels of recent Supreme Court decisions that put even more strain on the institution of marriage, National Public Radio is pushing the idea that couples “lease” their marriage before they buy it.

Crista Huff | August 20, 2013

JPMorgan Chase is under suspicion of hiring the children of Chinese officials in order to win banking business. The Securities and Exchange Commission’s anti-bribery unit is conducting a civil investigation into the matter.

Mike Shedlock | August 20, 2013

Here are a few charts on spending, the deficit, and GDP.

Daniel J. Mitchell | August 20, 2013

As regular readers know, one of my great challenges in life is trying to educate policy makers about the Laffer Curve, which is simply a way of illustrating that government won’t collect any revenue if tax rates are zero, but also won’t collect much revenue if tax rates are 100 percent.

Robert Knight | August 20, 2013

It’s obviously high time for Barack Obama to appoint a Rodeo Clown Czar.

David Sterman | August 20, 2013

Despite the current good news, demographic forces threaten to push the deficit higher later this decade.

Byron York | August 19, 2013

Republicans are buzzing about a new Gallup poll showing public approval of President Obama's handling of the economy has fallen to 35 percent, while disapproval has risen to an astonishing 62 percent.

Paul Greenberg | August 19, 2013

For an example of what happens when the ruling authorities misrule, or just go mad, see the daily headlines out of ever tormented Egypt, where equal but opposite madnesses now battle each other in the streets, and over the dead bodies of those Egyptians caught in the middle.

Lisa De Pasquale | August 19, 2013

I’ve been following Elisha Krauss on Twitter for several years. We first bonded over a mutual annoyance we both encountered over her seven years as Sean Hannity’s producer nationally-syndicated radio show and my involvement in the conservative movement.

Star Parker | August 19, 2013

The purging of Grammy Award winner Donnie McClurkin from performing at a concert commemorating the 50th anniversary of the 1963 civil rights March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech should serve as yet another wakeup call to Christian black Americans.

John Ransom | August 19, 2013

For staggering sum of $47 trillion dollars, one would think that perhaps this administration could afford a soundtrack under their reckless spending, like the 1970’s Bionic Man had when his binary powers took over.

Katie Kieffer | August 19, 2013

Janet Napolitano’s TSA agents won’t keep their blue, latex-covered paws to themselves. The TSA is now expanding its grope to rodeos, sports stadiums, music festivals and train stations.

Rachel Alexander | August 19, 2013

Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio, one of the most aggressively pro-freedom city councilmen, is under siege from the unions in one of the most corrupt local elections in the country.

Dan Holler | August 19, 2013

Few places in the world function (and I use that term loosely) like Washington, DC.

Matt Barber | August 19, 2013

The homofascist rainbow-shirts are at it again. They’ve unsheathed, once more, their anti-Christian long knives.

Mike Shedlock | August 19, 2013

Fascinating and remarkable do not remotely describe this technology. Unbelievable comes close, yet here we are.

Daniel J. Mitchell | August 19, 2013

Sounds like the cops must have been up against the mafia. Or a bunch of bank robbers, right? Not exactly. They raided an organic farm.

Morgan Brittany | August 19, 2013

If this is their MO, “cooking the books” and manipulating the numbers at their whim, how much is the debt really?

Michael Schaus | August 19, 2013

Apparently, under the new Common-Core standards, correct answers don’t really matter. At least that’s according to a “curriculum coordinator” in Chicago named Amanda August.

Michael Tanner | August 19, 2013

When residents in Connecticut consider getting a job, they assume they would be better off having a job than not. They’d be wrong. Because in Connecticut, it pays not to work.

Mark Baisley | August 19, 2013

Both scientists and policy makers will together wrestle with the complex question posed by Representative Hank Johnson (D-GA), “What would be the impact on the environment if Congress were to statutorily raise the sound barrier?”

Ken Blackwell | August 18, 2013
