John Hawkins | September 14, 2013

Liberals work hard to sow discord between black and white Americans, encourage divisiveness and discord at every turn, and regularly attribute run-of-the-mill political disagreements to racism.

John C. Goodman | September 14, 2013

Do you know of any place you can go to find a rational, well-thought out economic argument for liberalism? I can't.

John Ransom | September 14, 2013

Since almost the moment Obama celebrated his re-election with Republican leader John Boehner by proposing to raise taxes on all of us, liberals have been proved wrong. Not just wrong, but really, really, seriously wrong.

Kathryn Lopez | September 14, 2013

If Bret Baier ever needed an excellent excuse to get out of something, he had one on Sept. 10.

Brandon Howell | September 14, 2013

The Democrats’ one best hope at a competitive Senate race in Georgia is already exhibiting signs of weakness.

Ed Feulner | September 14, 2013

Imagine your family’s next trip to the dentist. You, your spouse and your children are covered by an insurance plan purchased through one of the new health exchanges opening next month.

Steve Deace | September 14, 2013

In the geo-political game of “Survivor” the former KGB agent pretending to be president has out-witted, out-lasted, and out-played the former community organizer pretending to be president.

Ransom Notes Radio | September 14, 2013

Yeah, yeah, yeah. We get it. Obama is brilliant. . . If that's true, can we have some less brilliant people try running the country? Also, Michael Tanner – from Cato – joined the show to discuss the Obamacare implementation train wreck.

Crista Huff | September 14, 2013

MasterCard reiterated a bullish financial outlook for the remainder of 2013, and the market responded by driving the share price to new highs.

Jeff Crouere | September 14, 2013

Along with the tragic economic consequences of Obama’s policies, Americans are now witnessing the dangerous effects of a left wing, inexperienced community organizer serving as Commander in Chief.

Night Watch | September 14, 2013

Rebel Forces are now blaming the Syrian government for another chemical attack. They also claimed the Syrian air force bombed a hospital. . . Somebody might be overplaying their hand.

Bill Tatro | September 14, 2013

After hearing the most recent commentary regarding Apple, Inc., I’m absolutely convinced that stock analysts, prior to hanging their shingle on Wall Street, are required to attend The Pavlovian Institute for Classical Stock Analyst Conditioning. Here’s how I believe it works.

Bob Beauprez | September 14, 2013

Democrats apparently can never just loose an election. Something sinister, even illegal, must be the reason.

Daniel J. Mitchell | September 14, 2013

For example, some employers have figured out how to avoid Obamacare while still providing health insurance. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the crowd in Washington is diligently working to make the law worse.

Charles Payne | September 14, 2013

Hard working people feel over-taxed, underrepresented and doomed in a system that rewards their neighbors for not working.

Mike Shedlock | September 14, 2013

Don't blame corporations or minimum wage laws. Blame the Fed, central bankers, fractional reserve lending, and Congressional silliness including Obamacare.

Diana West | September 13, 2013

Back in 2004, when a NYFD chief reminded the 9/11 Commission that it was never in "anyone's consciousness" that the Twin Towers would fall, he underscored a terrible truth.

Suzanne Fields | September 13, 2013

The latest Syrian crisis broke just as the children, like Congress, were returning from the long summer vacation.

Humberto Fontova | September 13, 2013

On September 11, 1973 the Chilean military led by General Augusto Pinochet slapped Fidel Castro so smartly that his Stalinist regime (and its dutiful U.S. Media minions) are still sniveling and sniffling and wiping away tears of shock, pain and humiliation.

Hank Adler | September 13, 2013

It cannot be lost on anyone that the Affordable Healthcare Act is resulting in business and personal decisions not desired by either the authors of the legislation or those who voted for its passage.

Michelle Malkin | September 13, 2013

Quick, call the CDC. We've got a Rocky Mountain outbreak of Acute Sore Loser Fever.

Mark Davis | September 13, 2013

You may be noticing that it’s not going over so well.  I thought I could explain.

Michael Barone | September 13, 2013

Here's how the Obama folks have been starting to spin Syria.

David Stokes | September 13, 2013

Vladimir Putin is currently cashing in on an ill-advised promise made when two presidents thought no one was listening.

David Limbaugh | September 13, 2013

You may say that there is no discrimination against Christians in America or casually dismiss it because Christians need no protection here because this is allegedly a Christian nation.

John Ransom | September 13, 2013

Politicians have been playing the political and economic equivalent of Theodoric Medieval Barber for the last number of years, bleeding the economy, and employing leeches wherever necessary.

Mona Charen | September 13, 2013

In March 2012, President Obama whispered to placeholder Russian president Dmitri Medvedev that he needed "space" on matters like missile defense until 2013.

Ken Blackwell | September 13, 2013

President Obama has apparently decided to change another of Ronald Reagan's policies. President Reagan famously said "Trust but Verify" when dealing with the Russians. With President Obama, our new policy will be to "Trust the Russians to Verify" whether Syria's Assad has complied with UN directives on chemical weapons.

Pat Buchanan | September 13, 2013

"It was a damn near-run thing," said the Duke of Wellington. The Iron Duke was speaking of Waterloo.

Linda Chavez | September 13, 2013

It's not often that a Democratic mayor decides to take on unions and his own city council to veto a minimum-wage hike, but that's what Washington, D.C., Mayor Vincent Gray has done.

Paul Greenberg | September 13, 2013

It would be wrong to say that our president's policy toward the continuing crisis, calamity and crack-up in Syria -- a disaster now rippling out far beyond that country -- has been disappointing. Disappointment implies that something better was expected.

Donald Lambro | September 13, 2013

A fiery political battle was raging among House Republicans this week over a temporary budget bill to keep the government funded when the new fiscal year begins on Oct. 1.

Rich Galen | September 13, 2013

President Barack Obama is back on his heels and that is a dangerous place to be. The more foreign leaders he met with, the more made it clear they were not going to be helpful in Syria. The more White House staff he sent to the Hill, the fewer Members and Senators were convinced.

Michael Schaus | September 13, 2013

Secretary of State John Kerry said the situation in Syria is "not a game" for the Obama Administration. Of course it's not. . . When playing a “game”, one generally arms themselves with a game plan; not to mention a vague idea of what constitutes “victory.”

Roger Schlesinger | September 13, 2013

First of all he might of had shovel ready jobs, but after a check with the Army Corp. of Engineers they were clean out of shovels.

Charlotte Hays | September 13, 2013

It’s been a bad week for the metrosexual male.

Ransom Notes Radio | September 13, 2013

Another day, another SEC investigation. It seems like the Government has their hands busy harassing the few people in this economy who actually produce wealth. Lou Basenese, founder of Wall Street Daily, also spoke with John about the inside stories of Wall Street.

Crista Huff | September 13, 2013

Pandora Media has selected digital-advertising veteran Brian McAndrews as its new CEO, Chairman and President.

Fritz Pfister | September 13, 2013

Things are seldom as they appear. It was reported this month in USA Today : “Spending on U.S. construction projects rose in July, led by strong gains in housing and nonresidential projects.”

Night Watch | September 13, 2013

With the Yongbyon reactor operational, North Korea should be able to produce plutonium and highly enriched uranium (HEU) for use in nuclear weapons.

Daniel J. Mitchell | September 13, 2013

Well, now we can add something else to the list, though it won’t surprise anybody who has been to the Post Office, DMV, or tried to generate any sort of action from a government agency.

Charles Payne | September 13, 2013

There are many ways to evaluate the stock market, from fundamental research to examination of charts or even the alignment of planets, but when I hear the media bang the drums over and over again about the top 1%, it gives me the feeling stocks are going higher.

Mike Shedlock | September 13, 2013

Raising the minimum wage does not fix the problem. And wasting money waging wars we cannot afford is counterproductive.

Brian and Garrett Fahy | September 13, 2013

Speaking to the nation Tuesday night about the Syrian conflict, President Obama sought to cloak his rhetorical and strategic incoherence in the cover of American exceptionalism.

David Williams | September 13, 2013

What many Americans may not know is that the substance that is poured into millions of American fuel tanks every year can no longer be classified as gasoline.

Brent Bozell | September 13, 2013

In the era of "warmonger" Republicans in the White House, the Toronto International Film Festival would have been fertile ground for bold, outspoken "dissent" from actors against war in the Middle East. Now with Obama on the brink of missile attacks in Syria, you would expect the same agitation, but this time coupled with a dash of betrayal.

Cliff May | September 12, 2013

Twelve years ago today, we were staring at smoking rubble in downtown Manhattan and at the Pentagon, counting the dead, wondering who had committed this atrocity and why, fearful of what they might do next, uncertain how to proceed. How far have we come since then?

Cal Thomas | September 12, 2013

"One does not sharpen the axes after the right time; after the time they are needed." -- Russian Proverb

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | September 12, 2013

Out of the corner of my eye, as I was passing a television, I saw a plane fly into a building. The sound was not on, and I thought, it must be a small plane and a small building. An errant pilot or a plane with failing equipment that crashed when it intended to land.

Victor Davis Hanson | September 12, 2013

Are the recent raves about a new California renaissance true?

Larry Elder | September 12, 2013

Given the evidence of the superiority of capitalism in achieving prosperity, isn't it astonishing we still debate its merits?

John Ransom | September 12, 2013

It’s past time to do away with the throwaway holiday of Labor Day. Let the Marxists keep May Day, if they wish. Instead, perhaps on the first Monday in September we should remember things that matter, like those people who died in the 9/11 tragedy.

Michael Reagan | September 12, 2013

Did you see the hopeful breaking news about Syria?

Debra J. Saunders | September 12, 2013

Sen. Barbara Boxer had been appealing to my better instincts as she never had before.

Matt Towery | September 12, 2013

Yes, I realize Newt Gingrich is not house speaker and is instead now a talking head on a cable news network. And yes, I realize that the economy is really not that great. But a familiar pattern, with a slight variation, may be repeating itself, and it might serve as a positive shot in the economic arm of the nation.

Michael Brown | September 12, 2013

So this is what our society has come to. Within a 10-day period, sportscaster Craig James was fired by Fox Sports for comments he had made against homosexuality during a political campaign last year while Keith Olbermann was lauded for his 9-minute anti-Russia, pro-homosexuality rant on ESPN.

Steve Chapman | September 12, 2013

In assessing the feasibility and probability of Russia's proposal to secure Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons, one overlooked factor should be paramount in our minds: Barack Obama is the luckiest politician on the face of the planet.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 12, 2013

It has now been just over a year since a group of terrorists overwhelmed our diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, and killed four Americans, one of whom was our ambassador, two of whom were former SEALs.

Ransom Notes Radio | September 12, 2013

Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory, and former member of the Democrat Party, joined the program to discuss his Free At Last PAC and the lost message of the GOP.

Crista Huff | September 12, 2013

The benefit change mirrors an identical decision made by IBM last week, and is attributed to rising healthcare costs.

George Jarkesy | September 12, 2013

A burgeoning new ideology has entered the scene as the debate over whether America should go to war in Syria rages on. It is called "Responsibility to Protect" or R2P.

Bill Gunderson | September 12, 2013

I have written many articles in the past about what a great stock Visa (V) is. Well finally, somebody else besides me must also think it is a great company because it was just added to the DOW Jones Industrial Average.

Bill Tatro | September 12, 2013

Regarding his recent address to the nation in which he discussed the current situation involving Syria, the president gave a speech that was pretty much expected.

Night Watch | September 12, 2013

The US promise to not attack Assad would amount to a protection agreement because the rebels will not promise to hand over chemical weapons. Yesterday, even so-called moderate rebel groups announced that they recognized Israel as their enemy and would attack it if they came to power.

Daniel J. Mitchell | September 12, 2013

Back in 2012, I reported on some academic research showing that Democrats lost about 25 seats in the 2010 mid-term elections because of support for Obamacare.

Charles Payne | September 12, 2013

The idea that Vladimir Putin would or could be some kind of Middle East peacemaker and bring the Syrian chemical weapons fiasco to a conclusion, acceptable by all, just seems too good to be true.

Mike Shedlock | September 12, 2013

People with pre-existing conditions and their own healthcare plans will be forced into "ObamaMarket Insurance" either because of rising costs or because the plans will drop people with pre-existing conditions.

Michael Schaus | September 12, 2013

Colorado Just recalled two Legislators for supporting tough new gun laws; but the problem, according to the Denver-based liberal who coasted into the Governor’s mansion, is that the average voter was too dumb to realize government’s benevolence.

Robert Knight | September 12, 2013

I’m all for according public officials the dignity due their positions, but I must say that Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. is beginning to resemble Puff the Magic Dragon.

Michael Whatley | September 12, 2013

No one expects the wheels of government to move fast. Washington’s pace can easily be compared to Beltway traffic in the morning: gridlock that is intermittently interrupted by small bursts of movement.

Wed, Sep 11, 2013

Ann Coulter | September 11, 2013

Americans unsure what to think about President Obama's plans for Syria should remember that all military action undertaken by Democrats for the last half-century has led to utter disaster.

Jerry Newcombe | September 11, 2013

Greater love has no man than he lay down his life for his friends. So said Jesus Christ.

Kevin Williams | September 11, 2013

UNITED 93 (2006) is a movie that holds a strange, moving place in American film history. It is a film that is not often shown on television (cable or non-cable channels) and a film that sadly, hasn’t been embraced by the film world as the modern Classic and testament that it is.

Jeff Jacoby | September 11, 2013

The Syrian crisis is in a frenzy, Egypt's political system is imploding, a new wave of Sunni terrorism is bloodying Iraq, post-Qaddafi Libya is collapsing into lawlessness and ruin, and Iran is edging closer to the nuclear threshold.

Rich Galen | September 11, 2013

President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have successfully maneuvered us into a position where Syria and its strongest ally, Russia, have exclusive rights to determine how, what, where and when to deal with the chemical weapons that (a) Putin said there was no proof Assad ever used, and (b) Assad denies he has ever had.

Bob Barr | September 11, 2013

Today, as we pause to remember those who lost their lives 12 years ago in the most savage attacks on U.S. civilians in American history, we might also reflect on what else has been lost in the aftermath of those acts of terrorism.

Hugh Hewitt | September 11, 2013

The consensus is that the president took a terrible situation and made it worse with what Bill Kristol called a “mini-Munich” speech, a continuation and amplification of what Joe Scarborough termed a Mr. Magoo foreign policy.

Michelle Malkin | September 11, 2013

Before we head to Syria to avenge the mass murder of their kids, how about we finish avenging ours?

John Stossel | September 11, 2013

Some things you just have to do, in spite of great uncertainty.

Walter E. Williams | September 11, 2013

No one can blame you if you start out in life poor, because how you start is not your fault. If you stay poor, you're to blame because it is your fault.

Brent Bozell | September 11, 2013

When we last checked in on Barack Obama discussing Benghazi on the network news, he was reassuring Brian Williams on the Oct. 25 "Rock Center" that "we're going to do a full investigation." It's a heater later, and it's still "we are going to." Last fall, Williams and Obama posed as curious for answers on how this disaster happened. Neither of them has demonstrated any noticeable curiosity since.

Jonah Goldberg | September 11, 2013

In Washington, D.C., the city's department of health wants to subject people seeking a tattoo or body piercing to a mandatory 24-hour waiting period before they can go through with it.

John Ransom | September 11, 2013

Liberals have, in 50 years, morphed from the idealism of Camelot to the reality-game show hostness of Al Sharpton.

Ben Shapiro | September 11, 2013

In August 2012, President Obama inadvertently set America up for war: He said that if Syria crossed a "red line" by using chemical weapons, that would amount to a "game changer".

Terry Jeffrey | September 11, 2013

At the end of this month, members of Congress will face a binary choice. The House and Senate will pass a bill to fund the government past Sept. 30, the last day of the fiscal year. That bill will either permit or prohibit funding for implementation of Obamacare. Members will need to vote for it or against it.

Austin Bay | September 11, 2013

Seventy years ago, this week, the Western Allies launched their first amphibious assault on mainland Europe, as American soldiers in the U.S. Army's 36th Infantry Division (Texas Division) landed under fire on a beach south of Salerno, Italy.

Paul Greenberg | September 11, 2013

It was one of those morning flights. Routine. The ETD went up on the computer screens along with all the others.

Rachel Marsden | September 11, 2013

As the world now mulls Russia's proposal for Syria to place its chemical arsenal under international control, what have we really learned so far?

Donald Lambro | September 11, 2013

Barack Obama's rapid plunge into economic, fiscal and foreign policy chaos has dealt a huge political blow to his long-troubled presidency.

Jacob Sullum | September 11, 2013

According to a recent New York Times poll, just 30 percent of Americans think the United States should launch air strikes against Syria to punish its government's use of chemical weapons, while twice as many oppose the idea. Evidently, America is overrun with isolationists.

Bradley Abramson | September 11, 2013

Recently the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit held that simply being exposed to a fellow citizen’s prayers, offered at a public governmental meeting, could constitute an “establishment” of religion.

Ken Connor | September 11, 2013

Imagine in a thousand years someone doing IVF with a long-frozen embryo just to see what a 21st century – or, in this case, 20th century – human being was like.

Michael Schaus | September 11, 2013

I can’t stress enough how much I would like Jack Lew to run my household expenses. Apparently the Federal Government ran a $146 billion deficit in the month of August without adding a single dollar to the total National Debt. . . And I'm sure all the related accounting is "on the level."

Lincoln Brown | September 11, 2013

And so I hear Harry Reid waxing rhapsodic over the fate of the innocents in Syria. Unfortunately, the gentleman from Nevada's concern is one born of political expedience.

Ransom Notes Radio | September 11, 2013

It is becoming more and more apparent that our illustrious leaders have no idea what they’re doing. Syria, quantitative easing, historic recalls. . . Tom Tancredo, possible future governor of Colorado, joined the program to discuss the disconnect between the government and the citizens.

Crista Huff | September 11, 2013

Visa will be added to the Dow Jones Industrial Average as of the market close on Sept 20. Watch for the stock to trade up, as approximately 6.5 million shares need to be purchased by Dow index funds.

Ralph Benko | September 11, 2013

The perversely named “Stop Online Piracy Act” (SOPA) itself may have been the most brazen attempted act of piracy in all recorded history. Truth in Legislation would have required it to be named the “Ultimate Act of Online Piracy.”

Night Watch | September 11, 2013

As occurs whenever a Christian village is captured by rebel forces, the fighters looted and burned the churches as well as the Christian homes. Government forces were reported to be preparing to retake the village on 9 September.

Daniel J. Mitchell | September 11, 2013

At the risk of oversimplifying, there are two major challenges to overcome when you’re a pro-freedom policy wonk in Washington. The first challenge is getting people to connect the dots.

The German election is on September 22. And with 12 days remaining, things do not look good for a Grand Coalition headed by Merkel.

Sarah is a beautiful three-year-old. She loves Honey Nut Cheerios, nursery rhymes, and playing on the playground. But lately, it almost breaks her mother’s heart to see Sarah out there with the other kids.

Michael Brown | September 10, 2013

Childhood is a time of innocence, a time of wonder, a time of discovery, and no amount of fame and money can make up for the loss of a childhood.

Neal Boortz | September 10, 2013

Well, if you’re one of those out there who has thus far failed to see the dominance of Vladimir Putin in the Putin/Obama relationship … the light surely must be shining now.

Thomas Sowell | September 10, 2013

I cannot see why even a single American, a single Israeli or a single Syrian civilian should be killed as a result of a token U.S. military action, undertaken simply to spare Barack Obama the embarrassment of doing nothing, after his ill-advised public ultimatum to the Syrian government to not use chemical weapons was ignored.

Thomas Sowell | September 10, 2013

Chickens are coming home to roost for Barack Obama, both at home and overseas. When he first entered the White house, to worldwide acclaim, and backed by huge majorities in both the Senate and the House of Representatives, he could do whatever he wanted -- and could do no wrong, in the eyes of the mainstream media.

Scottie Hughes | September 10, 2013

Thirty-five miles northeast of Damascus is a small Christian village built into the mountains of Syria.

Chuck Norris | September 10, 2013

While President Barack Obama and Congress pontificate over whether Syrian President Bashar Assad used chemical weapons on his own people and whether a limited U.S. attack on Syria would be justified, what Washington needs to realize is this: Assad launched sarin on its citizens in hopes of moving the U.S. like a chess piece into his civil war and deeper onto the Middle East war map.

John Hawkins | September 10, 2013

Who made the list?

Mike Adams | September 10, 2013

Late Friday morning of last week, I got interrupted by a call from Katie Pavlich. It's not like I was working - I haven't worked on a Friday morning since I got tenure back in 1998.

David Limbaugh | September 10, 2013

Do you ever get the idea that this nation is not only in decline but completely rudderless under the Obama administration? Well, it's not really rudderless; it only appears rudderless because Obama isn't pursuing the same goals as past presidents.

Mona Charen | September 10, 2013

Barack Obama accelerated his political ascent in 2002 by positioning himself firmly as the voice of anti-war Democrats.

John Ransom | September 10, 2013

Will Obama just rewrite the regulations to make union members magically eligible for Obamacare subsidies, as in: “Look, we just found the ‘Lost Pages’ of the Obamacare legislation that we accidentally left on the copier for these four years. Hurray! Union members ARE eligible”?

Cal Thomas | September 10, 2013

Perhaps if America had a successful track record in the Middle East, President Obama's appeal for a "limited" attack on Syria might carry more weight.

Dennis Prager | September 10, 2013

Readers are undoubtedly familiar with the various "doctrines" named after American presidents. Those named after James Monroe, Harry Truman and George W. Bush are among the best known.

The economic problems that this country faces are escalating.

Debra J. Saunders | September 10, 2013

Will the California Legislature point a giant middle finger at Bay Area commuters by naming the western span of the Bay Bridge after San Francisco Chronicle columnist Willie Brown even though, as San Francisco's mayor, Brown unconscionably delayed reconstruction of the seismically challenged eastern span and helped drive the project's cost from $1.5 billion to $6.4 billion?

Paul Greenberg | September 10, 2013

The young bodies wrapped in white linen winding sheets. Dozens of them.

Bill Murchison | September 10, 2013

So much for the long-anticipated U.S.-Syrian smasheroo, with missiles and accusations flying through the air. The whole thing appears, unexpectedly, to have ended before properly beginning. Or at least we are entitled to guess that on the basis of Monday developments.

Daniel J. Mitchell | September 10, 2013

Based on the dismal data from the Minneapolis Federal Reserve (as well as our own experiences), we know Obamanomics doesn’t work in the United States. And we know it doesn’t work in Japan. We know it doesn’t work in Spain. We know it doesn’t work in Argentina. We know it doesn’t work in Greece. . .

Charles Payne | September 10, 2013

Liberalization of India's energy sector remains unfinished. Energy policy reforms that began 20 years ago have helped to move the country away from a predominantly government-owned energy sector.

Many people believe demographics explains the decline in the workforce. However, that's not the case.

Gayle Trotter, from the Independent Women’s Forum, joined the program to discuss the increasingly ignored issue of Obamacare. Also, it looks like war might just be the beginning of the problem in the Middle East.

Isis Pharmaceuticals will receive $100 million from Biogen Idec in a six-year agreement to develop treatments for neurological disorders, and up to $220 million thereafter for each new drug compound.

Hal Scherz | September 10, 2013

All across the country, state governors are under tremendous pressure to accept federal funds for expansion of their state Medicaid programs. Most of this originates in Washington and the Obama administration, but much is local and comes from special interests such as hospitals.

Dave Ramsey | September 10, 2013

That was a pretty consistent message around the Ramsey household as the kids were growing up. If you’re not working and making your own way, you’ve got nothing.

You can believe in us. . . We are the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), you can believe in us because we are the senior Senator from Arizona (McCain) and the Secretary of State (Kerry), or you can believe in us; we are Bud Abbott and Lou Costello.

The threat of a US attack against Syria has tended to work in favor of order in Egypt. Nobody wants such a US attack on Syria.

Bob Beauprez | September 10, 2013

The most polite commentary came from the New York Times who described the "soft jobs data" as "disappointing." The 21.3 million Americans unemployed or under employed might use a different word than "disappointing."

An Australian mining company, Roy Hill, is set to receive $650 million in long-term financing from the United States’ Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im Bank).

I became upset when I got word. Jeep, reports Automotive News, is shifting its focus away from hearty off-road 4X4's to, mostly, dinky little two-wheel-drive cars that ride smoothly on paved roads - the kind of cars Europeans like to drive.

Overwhelmingly, Americans reject Barack Obama’s call to launch a military strike against Syria.

Crystal Wright | September 10, 2013

Where in the world is America, as Syria descends into utter carnage? This is the question nations are asking of us. Like it or not, America is the world’s conscience, defender of humanity, democracy and warrior against evil.

In the last 100 years we have only managed to increase the world temperature by .8 degrees Celsius. Try as we might, the Amazon rainforest is still around, and we have yet to see California erode into the Pacific Ocean. C’mon people. . . This is America! We can do better.

Julian Bond, famous civil rights activist, wrote an article in USA Today this year on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. His selective memory pointed out the similarities of today’s economic woes of blacks to those of the 1960s.

The buzz in the Middle East media is that the real reason President Obama changed his mind about striking Syria last week was not, in fact, that he is indecisive.

Derek Hunter | September 08, 2013

The nation will soon know whether or not President Obama will authorize a strike on Syrian military forces. What he will tell us on Tuesday evening, few can factually predict. But if the outcome of his deliberative process does not pose his favored verdict, no one would be surprised if he just did as he originally wished to begin with.

Steve Chapman | September 08, 2013

The advocates of war against Syria have taken Theodore Roosevelt's advice and turned it upside down. They believe that in confronting Bashar al-Assad, the United States should speak loudly and carry a tiny stick.

Jack Kerwick | September 08, 2013

As Congress and the President debate over whether America should “intervene” in—i.e. launch war against—Syria, self-declared conservatives would be well served to revisit their political tradition’s stance on war generally.

Tad DeHaven | September 08, 2013

Downsizing Government has a new tool allowing readers to chart spending for more than 500 federal agencies with the click of a mouse. It’s pretty cool. Hopefully it will help citizens, reporters, and policymakers understand how the budget has grown to a colossal $3.5 trillion a year.
