1) Liberalism is college professors and documentary filmmakers accumulating vast fortunes in a capitalistic system by decrying the evils of capitalism.

Sarah Jean Seman | July 19, 2014

"It’s time to tell the truth. To get the facts out. It’s time for the American people to understand and be told, authoritatively, that what happened in Benghazi was a state-sponsored terrorist attack by the Islamic people of Iran. And for the US government to stand up to that very uncomfortable truth and do something about it."

Sean Noble | July 19, 2014

?Remembering back to any high school US history class, we can all recall hearing about the doctrines of various presidents. A doctrine would be the pattern of actions that came to define a given administration. The history of doctrines tends to remember presidents by their aggressive foreign policy stances, such as the Monroe Doctrine towards European colonization efforts in the Americas or the Reagan Doctrine of pushing back Soviet influence around the world.

Kathryn Lopez | July 19, 2014

"Perhaps the Catholic church would volunteer to pony up some cash for the illegals' care then? Hmm?"

Paul Greenberg | July 19, 2014

Years ago, a decade ago, an old friend emailed me a classic Southern news story. It went down straight. Neat. Like a shot of Early Times. The story came out of the Mobile Press-Register in Alabama back when it was still a daily.

Paul Driessen | July 19, 2014

Ethanol damages your cars, small engines, food budget – and kills Gulf of Mexico animals.

Hank Adler | July 19, 2014

This week there was an exchange of classified and confidential e-mails between Russian leaders and our Administration. Ultimately, if necessary, the Administration will claim executive privilege over the e-mails which were immediately provided to the Internal Revenue Service for safekeeping. The e-mails have been leaked through a source currently resident in Moscow.

Ed Feulner | July 19, 2014

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) likes to present itself as the champion of the little guy. But officials of SEIU Healthcare—“the fastest-growing union of healthcare, child care, home care and nursing home workers in the Midwest”—aren’t averse to a little high-living.

Michael Schaus | July 19, 2014

Given that our Commander in Chief is a surprisingly decent firearm salesman, it’s a little odd that one of America’s most prolific gun manufacturers might soon be facing an agonizing financial death. But, that’s exactly where Colt is headed if things don’t change drastically.

Ransom Notes Radio | July 19, 2014

The Obama Administration was, apparently, “blindsided” by Israel’s decision to send ground forces into Gaza. (I guess they learned it on the news – which seems pretty par-for-the-course for this clueless Administration.)

Larry Provost | July 19, 2014

?This week, Islamic protestors surrounded a synagogue in Paris. Islamists threw rocks, and several tried to enter the synagogue with bats, chairs, an axe, and other weapons. One hundred and fifty Jews were trapped inside.

Peter Morici | July 19, 2014

Testifying before Congress, Federal Reserve Chairwoman Yellen cherry picked data on inflation by noting prices are up, on a year-over-year basis, less than the Federal Reserve’s target of 2 percent.

Larry Kudlow | July 19, 2014

Across his remarkably successful presidency, Ronald Reagan repeatedly made the link between the U.S. economy and U.S. international security and defense. He consistently argued that weakness at home leads to weakness abroad.

Bill Tatro | July 19, 2014

I am a bit confused and hope that long time readers will be able to clarify the situation for me.

John Nantz | July 18, 2014

Presidents are supposed to be exemplars. Why else do we build monuments to them? They're supposed to be superhuman and represent the power and virtue of democracy, the iron resolve of a nation before a world of howling enemies, the compassion of a powerful virtue that inspires the fidelity of liberty loving peoples across the globe. Presidents aren't supposed to be shabby.

Humberto Fontova | July 18, 2014

No ethnic group in the U.S. matches Cuban-Americans in their rejection of the Democratic Party. This might explain why most of you, amigos, have probably never heard of this atrocity against “Hispanics” attempting to enter the U.S. The Democratic Party’s public relations department (i.e. mainstream media) saw no upside to publicizing this “border crisis.”

Robert Charles | July 18, 2014

?A terrible confusion has occurred in Washington. It is not the confusion you think. It is another confusion. I am not talking about the enormous differences between Republicans and Democrats, the gaping chasm between those who believe in more limited government, free speech, press, worship and gun rights, and those who advocate more government and greater limits.

David Dewhurst | July 18, 2014

One year ago today, I had the immense privilege of watching Governor Rick Perry sign House Bill 2 (HB2), one of the most significant pieces of pro-life legislation in Texas history. In addition to saving lives and protecting women’s health, its passage emphatically serves as a symbol of the rule of law, the will of a majority of Texans, and the capstone to more than a decade of passing pro-life legislation.

Erick Erickson | July 18, 2014

In what appears to be the ultimate modern demonstration of "drinking the Kool-Aid," Republicans across the spectrum seem to have entered a pact in sticking together to defend, and even celebrate, campaign tactics predicated on gross voter fraud and manipulation of minority voters. In fact, given recent campaign finance disclosures, it seems clear some Senate Republican leaders helped pay for the attacks on their own base in Mississippi.

Charlotte Hays | July 18, 2014

Should people with strong religious convictions prepare to violate their beliefs or steer clear of corporate activity in the United States?

Mark Davis | July 18, 2014

When this week began, it was hard to imagine a story knocking our collapsing borders from the front of our minds. But in the span of a few hours Thursday, two stories made us hit the pause button on the mounting and proper indignation over the organized (and often secret) government dumping of illegals in our midst.

Michelle Malkin | July 18, 2014

Barack and Michelle Obama are quite the diversionary tag-team. He blames everyone else for his problems. She takes credit for progress on his behalf that he doesn't deserve and distracts public attention from his avalanche of failures with endless feel-good photo-ops.

Brent Bozell | July 18, 2014

For those who predict the coming collapse of Western civilization, there's always MTV for proof.

Michael Barone | July 18, 2014

Liberals just aren't very liberal these days. The word "liberal" comes from the Latin word meaning freedom, and in the 19th century, liberals in this country and abroad stood for free speech, free exercise of religion, free markets, free trade -- for minimal state interference in people's lives.

Mike Adams | July 18, 2014

Every now and then I make a mistake and have to issue a public apology. Today, I am in the position of having to write a highly embarrassing apology to Brice Horton who was the subject of my recent column "Horton Hears the Who" and my not-so-recent column "Expel Brice Horton."

David Limbaugh | July 18, 2014

I don't think Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against President Obama right now, but I also don't think that considering the idea is "crazy talk."

Mona Charen | July 18, 2014

You needn't be clairvoyant to deduce what the Democratic Party wants to run on in 2016. It really doesn't matter whether their nominee is Hillary Clinton or someone else.

Sarah Jean Seman | July 18, 2014

“The Justice Department is probably the most dangerous domestic department in the executive branch when you have someone who is willing to abuse its power....”

Michael Reagan | July 18, 2014

Despite the media play Chicago gets, it isn't the official "Murder Capital of the U.S.A."

Ken Blackwell | July 18, 2014

Connecticut’s liberal Sen. Richard Blumenthal wants no one to have to worry about aborting unborn children late in pregnancy, very late.

Pat Buchanan | July 18, 2014

To observe the decades-long paralysis of America's political elite in controlling her borders calls to mind the insight of James Burnham in 1964 -- "Liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide."

Suzanne Fields | July 18, 2014

New York -- New York, New York, a wonderful town. (The Bronx is up, and the Battery's down.)

Linda Chavez | July 18, 2014

When it comes to an agreement with Iran about its nuclear program, no deal is better than a bad deal.

John Ransom | July 18, 2014

Let’s face it conservatives: The president’s gifted and we’re just jealous. He’s been given more gifts than any man alive.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | July 18, 2014

he children’s presence is complicated by the fact that 75 percent appear to be from Central America—mostly Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador—and so they are more difficult to repatriate than Mexicans. The surge is far beyond the capacity of our holding centers, so hundreds are being bussed and flown to various military bases and other areas around the country.

Arina Grossu | July 18, 2014

If passed, this one federal law would invalidate most state pro-life laws, common-sense laws that have been passed to protect women and their babies. It would further prohibit states from introducing new pro-life laws in the future.

Gabriella Hoffman | July 18, 2014

Green on the outside yet red on the inside, modern-day environmentalism is an anti-life, anti-fun, and anti-progress movement. Peel away the “protect the planet” façade to discover its eco-socialist core.

Donald Lambro | July 18, 2014

I recently met a man in his mid-fifties who told me he came to America as a very young person with less than $25 in his pocket and made a pretty good life for himself here.

Brandon Howell | July 18, 2014

?This week National Journal unveiled its “Against the Grain” awards, an evaluation of campaigns, candidates, and ads at what could be called the halfway point of the 2014 cycle.

Rich Tucker | July 18, 2014

Immigration, you may have noticed, is very much in the news these days. And that seems unlikely to change.

Mary Grabar | July 18, 2014

?Larry Grathwohl was one of a disappearing breed, from the working class, an American patriot, who had a clear moral vision. He fought communists in the jungles of Vietnam and then in their clandestine cells here in America. He was a gentleman, respectful of women, a loving father and grandfather.

Bill Tatro | July 18, 2014

Having lived most of my life in upstate New York in the snow belt region, (between Syracuse and Buffalo) I always found it prudent to heed the advice of the weather man when he proclaimed a major storm was coming.

Jack Kerwick | July 18, 2014

If ever sober-minded folks thought that they could take refuge in the Christian church from the left-wing juggernaut that is our culture’s zeitgeist, they can think this no more.

Wayne Allyn Root | July 17, 2014

Not a week goes by that I'm not called or emailed by hundreds of fans who believe we have a foreigner and Muslim in the White House.

Ann Coulter | July 17, 2014

It's been fun to watch the media discuss the border crisis in real time, improvising their arguments on the fly. Let's try A, and if that doesn't work, we'll try B.

Reince Priebus | July 17, 2014

Jobs. ObamaCare. Education. Border security. These are just a few of the issues where Democrats are blocking real solutions and actual legislation—and in fact have made the problems worse.

Rich Galen | July 17, 2014

?I am not, as you might know by now, a huge fan of President Barak Obama. Neither, it seems, are a large majority of the American people. According to the latest summary of national polls from, the President's job approval is sitting at only 41.9 percent.

Victor Davis Hanson | July 17, 2014

Foreign leaders don't trust the U.S. They are baffled as to whether America is guilty of incompetence in hiring such a roguish dropout snoop in the first place, or guilty of cynically spying on America's best friends -- or both.

Derek Hunter | July 17, 2014

I don’t get tanning, either outside or inside. I’ve never been a sun-worshipper and can’t stand hot summers.

Larry Elder | July 17, 2014

Attorney General Eric Holder, in a recent interview, reiterates the theme heard from the very beginning of President Barack Obama's administration: opposition to Obama's agenda equals racism. "There's a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that's directed at me (and) directed at the president."

Judge Andrew Napolitano | July 17, 2014

And just last week, Attorney General Eric Holder, while in London, opined that much of the criticism of Obama is based on race -- meaning that if Obama were fully white, his critics would be silent. This is highly inflammatory, grossly misleading, patently without evidential support and, yet again, chilling.

Cal Thomas | July 17, 2014

It may be too soon to label it a trend and there is insufficient data to confirm it, but President Obama and his party may be losing their iron grip on their most loyal and enthusiastic voting bloc: African-Americans.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | July 17, 2014

This summer has served as a reminder to me about the virtue of virtues, specifically hard work and perseverance.

Debra J. Saunders | July 17, 2014

The star of a CNN film, "Documented," journalist Jose Antonio Vargas went to Texas to bring attention to the 57,000 unaccompanied minors who have crossed the border illegally since October.

Most of the battles to determine Republican nominees in the GOP's quest to take control of the U.S. Senate this year have been decided.

Paul Greenberg | July 17, 2014

It was Jonathan Swift who observed long ago, "When a true genius appears, you can know him by this sign: that all the dunces are in a confederacy against him."

Steve Chapman | July 17, 2014

There is a point at which firmness of conviction becomes obstinacy, and there is a point at which obstinacy becomes comedy. The latter was on spectacular view the other day when a prominent inflation hawk self-destructed on national TV.

Emmett Tyrrell | July 17, 2014

I have been vindicated! For years I have been comparing the Clinton family to the family of Warren Gamaliel Harding, our 29th president and a president of dark memory at least to most liberal historians. For me, Warren was sheer slapstick, as to some degree his modern-day equivalent was, Bill Clinton. And forget not their gruesome wives.

Rebecca Hagelin | July 17, 2014

One of my favorite things to think about, talk about, and simply revel in is how much God loves design - and to design.

Zachary Gappa | July 17, 2014

The idea of home, of a sense of place, is a vital thread in conservative thought. It's crucial to the conservative emphasis on community, family, and local institutions. Yet amid the incessant discussions on this theme, it's easy to forget how such a basic good as a literal home is unobtainable for so many homeless Americans.

Peter Morici | July 17, 2014

The economy is recovering from a harsher than normal winter, but the pace of growth the balance of this year and next will not create nearly enough decent jobs for the millions unemployed and recent graduates working at venues like Starbucks.

Larry Provost | July 17, 2014

The IRS is running but cannot hide due to citizens; citizens who obtained two important victories this week.

Andrew Langer | July 17, 2014

Sugar, a staple with massive economic implications worldwide, is also generally regarded as the commodity with the most market distortions associated with it.

Phil Kerpen | July 17, 2014

It was so brazen. Right there, over email, Lois Lerner warned her colleagues "Congress has asked for emails... so we need to be cautious about what we say in emails." Then she asked whether the IRS's instant messaging application was being archived, and was told that - contrary to law - archiving had been disabled. She responded: "Perfect."

John Hawkins, founder of, joined the show to talk about not only the size of government, but government’s inability to function under President Obama.

Michael Schaus | July 17, 2014

A Republican candidate for US Senate was kicked out of a recent interview for having the audacity to point out a reporter’s disrespect and liberal bias. But, not before being personally insulted, ridiculed, and mocked over his views on Global Warming.

John Ransom | July 16, 2014

Remember when saving money was the reason for Obamacare? Yeah I don’t really either, but I remember when they 'said' it was. “It will cut the deficit!” they said. Where’s your Ezra Klein now Obama?

Jeff Jacoby | July 16, 2014

?To the Constitution's 27 amendments, Senate Democrats would like to add a 28th.

Michelle Malkin | July 16, 2014

The Vargas stunt will backfire because it is a smug and emblematic middle finger to everyone outside the D.C.-Manhattan bubble who believes in following the rules.

John Stossel | July 16, 2014

Republicans debate adding another $10.5 billion to the Highway Trust Fund to keep it going another year -- without deciding how to reform it. Now, there's no doubt some roads and bridges need work. But too little transportation money spent by government goes to building and repairing roads.

Walter E. Williams | July 16, 2014

The U.S. Justice Department's Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that 2012 losses because of personal identity theft totaled ?$24.7 billion.

Dr. Ben Carson | July 16, 2014

Many people were shocked when I relayed the facts about the deleterious effects of Obamacare on employment, skyrocketing insurance premiums and the displacement of health care providers.

Brent Bozell | July 16, 2014

Holder's been "treated differently," all right. He's been pampered by the press, a coddling that is ongoing, more than five years after he called America "a nation of cowards" on racial matters.

Jonah Goldberg | July 16, 2014

"Here's the difference between us," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu explained on "Fox News Sunday." "We're using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they're using their civilians to protect their missiles."

Bob Barr | July 16, 2014

One might hope that with a full-blown catastrophe looming on our nation’s southern border, Democrats might have considered discarding their standard talking points memo -- blaming the crisis on former President Bush and the Republicans in the House -- and respond with a realistic plan worthy of America’s national leaders. Alas, we are not so fortunate.

Terry Jeffrey | July 16, 2014

For years, elected and unelected officials in Washington, D.C., have refused to do their duty to enforce our immigration laws and secure our border.

Ben Shapiro | July 16, 2014

If there's one place on Earth that should understand the danger of Jew hatred, it is Frankfurt, Germany. Between 1933 and 1945, the Jewish population of the city was decimated, dropping from 30,000 to 602. So Frankfurt seems an odd place for a new blood libel against the Jews. Nonetheless, this week, 2,500 protesters, including Muslims and neo-Nazis -- allied once again -- showed up downtown to scream about Israel's defensive action against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

Austin Bay | July 16, 2014

According to the Israeli government, in this latest round of Israel-Hamas combat, Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system has (so far) intercepted 90 percent of targeted incoming Hamas rockets.

Rachel Marsden | July 16, 2014

We've all received emails purporting to be from our bank or email service provider, with instructions to click legitimate-looking links that would no doubt compromise our computer systems. If government intelligence services are just getting into the same game now, then the lack of return on the intelligence budget investment should be of more concern than the potential for abuse.

Donald Lambro | July 16, 2014

If anyone needs further evidence the White House is out of touch with reality, it came in an official statement this week that President Obama has made the world a more tranquil place.

Ransom Notes Radio | July 16, 2014

The Republican Party probably needs another Barry Goldwater before 2016… Lee Edwards spoke with John, from FreedomFest in Las Vegas, about the conservative roots of the modern Republican Party; and the role of the libertarian wing.

Night Watch | July 16, 2014

The timing does not seem ripe for an end of firing just yet. The Israelis do not seem satisfied they have accomplished their goals, which include a significant degradation of Hamas' ability to launch rockets.

Michael Schaus | July 16, 2014

Eric Holder has already proven that he is willing to wield the power of the DOJ to force his political will on opponents. So, it’s pretty obvious that bankers would be sharing a cell with Rod Blagojevich by now; if Holder had any inclination to pursue individual charges. But, let’s face it, this isn’t really about holding people accountable…

Ron Paul | July 15, 2014

Over the past several weeks we have seen a significant increase in illegal immigration, as thousands of unaccompanied minors pour across what seems an invisible southern border into the United States.

Michael Barone | July 15, 2014

The flood of underage -- and non-underage -- illegal immigrants from Central America coming across the border in Texas is, to paraphrase a former Obama administration official, a "man-caused disaster." The man who caused it, more than anyone else, is Barack Obama.

David Limbaugh | July 15, 2014

Attorney General Eric Holder once again played the race card -- this time on national television, in an interview on ABC's "This Week," claiming that he and President Obama have been targets of "a racial animus" by some of the administration's political opponents.

Mona Charen | July 15, 2014

"The heartlessness and nativist pandering that have broken America's immigration system must give way to providing proper food, clothing, shelter and medical care to the Central American children streaming into the country," so pronounced the editors of the New York Daily News.

John Ransom | July 15, 2014

Liberals and establishment Republicans often ask me: "What was John McCain thinking when he selected Sarah Palin?" To which I reply: "What was anyone thinking when they voted for Obama?" That an unprepared black man is better than a more qualified woman? Who exactly is waging the war on women?

Phyllis Schlafly | July 15, 2014

Do you remember when President George W. Bush, in 2005, held a summit meeting with the "three amigos" to promote the free movement of people and goods across our borders with Canada and Mexico?

Paul Driessen | July 15, 2014

t was a surreal experience. As the Heartland Institute’s hugely successful Ninth International Conference on Climate Change ended, I agreed to let Greenpeace activist Connor Gibson interview me.

Bill Murchison | July 15, 2014

Sarah Palin's call for the impeachment of President Obama makes no sense. What does the lady want -- a national street fight? But a fetching question arises from her enterprise: Could we live for two years under a President Joe Biden? Would it be worse than now? Maybe not.

Ralph Benko | July 15, 2014

The indefensibly grandiose overreach of Obama and the Democrats may well allow the GOP to parlay an oppositional strategy into a Senate majority in November. Yet both the GOP's Regular and Insurgent factions appear to be stuck, exclusively, in Reverse. The electorate desires more than that.

Ransom Notes Radio | July 15, 2014

Federal Reserve Chairwoman Yellen will testify to Congress Tuesday and Wednesday about the economy and future fed policy. We won’t learn much about either, because the Fed refuses to recognize the facts on the ground.

Lee Culpepper | July 15, 2014

As tens of thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America spill over our southern border, millions of disregarded black kids remain confined to war-like ghettoes across the United States. If the level of violence occurring every day in urban black communities popped up anywhere else, does anyone believe liberals would pretend not to notice?

David Stokes | July 14, 2014

On July 14, 1789, Thomas Jefferson was serving as America’s Ambassador to France. The author of the Declaration of Independence in another July, thirteen-years earlier, was an eyewitness to the political unrest leading to the storming of a political prison called The Bastille. This remains the iconic symbol of the beginning of The French Revolution.

Because the liberty movement is new to the game, the statists need only deploy a few proven techniques to remain in control.

Shawn Mitchell | July 14, 2014
