Michael Schaus | August 02, 2014

The first clue that the Market Place Fairness Act is antithetical to the philosophy of small government is, that it was passed by Harry Reid’s Senate. Do you really think Harry just let some small government, Federalist, piece of legislation slip by on accident?

John Hawkins | August 02, 2014

Republicans ahead of him on the golf course wouldn't let him play through; so he missed calls telling him ISIS was overrunning Iraq.

John Ransom | August 02, 2014

The press will cover the good news adequately, while the press will cover-up the bad news adequately, too. It's all the same, after all. It's helping Obama, the only economy anyone should care about.

Ken Blackwell | August 02, 2014

A monumental opportunity has presented itself as Julian Castro, former mayor of San Antonio, takes over as the new Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and Congress looks ahead on the critical issue of housing finance reform.

Terry Paulson | August 02, 2014

?In the classic comedy, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," the daughter Toula complains to her mother about her stubborn father being the "head of the house," Maria replied, "Let me tell you something, Toula. The man is the head, but the woman is the neck. And she can turn the head any way she wants."

Kathryn Lopez | August 02, 2014

By only spending the minimum on yourself, you may find that you have much more than you would ever need. This was Gershon Burd's discovery, and it was how, on a modest income, he gave away (anonymously) so much to so many. Modesty helps us see the big picture -- that our lives should be integrated wholes, lived in communion with others. It's about escaping the tyranny of an isolated something that seems increasingly difficult and outre with each passing year and technology upgrade.

Brandon Howell | August 02, 2014

Today, that one voice is the average American. It is you. It is me. And the time has come to speak.

Peter Morici | August 02, 2014

The Labor Department reported the economy added only 209,000 jobs in July. The unemployment rate rose to 6.2 percent, but that hardly tells how tough the labor market has become for ordinary folks.

Doug Fabian | August 02, 2014

One very important reason why I’ve come to really love ETFs, particularly during the past several years, is product innovation.

Mike Shedlock | August 02, 2014

Here's another way of looking at things: Only 25% of the decline in full-time employment in the 25-54 age group can be attributed to the aging work force. The rest is overall economic weakness.

Ransom Notes Radio | August 02, 2014

The ironically named White House Press Secretary, Josh Earnest, is this week’s “Ezra Klein is an Idiot” award winner. Apparently, being able to say stupid things without batting an eye is a job requirement for the Obama Administration.

Daniel J. Mitchell | August 02, 2014

Our topic today is humor. Or maybe it’s hypocrisy. Or perhaps it’s duplicity. Heck, it’s all of those things and more. Why? Because a leading supporter of Obamacare has been caught with his pants down.

Bill Tatro | August 02, 2014

According to the latest figures available in 2014, as of 2011, (a bit of a lag when it comes to education) the United States had 21 million students in higher education. But who's really get a job nowadays?

Mark Skousen | August 02, 2014

Stocks sold off sharply Thursday. Finally, the much anticipated correction is happening, but I don’t see any fundamental reason for the decline. It’s purely a technical correction.

It’s time to banish the Fed. It’s time to re-embrace capitalism. The same way watered down academics are destroying our preparedness for the future, so too is monetary policy that water’s down the dollar.

Steve Deace | August 02, 2014

Maybe we've had it wrong this whole time? Maybe the leadership of the Republican Party should be commended for the very things we often criticize them for? Or maybe I'm getting a contact high for living too close to Colorado.

Larry Provost | August 02, 2014

This week Major Theodore Van Kirk, the last surviving Veteran of the Enola Gay that dropped the first atomic bomb on Japan, joined the rest of his comrades. His passing is a reminder of why using the atomic bomb was the right thing.

Night Watch | August 02, 2014

The security situation has deteriorated in Tripoli and in Benghazi. In Tripoli, fighting between tribal militias has expanded beyond the airport region, south of Tripoli, to areas west of the capital.

Brent Bozell | August 01, 2014

Today virginity isn't a virtue but a burden. Chastity is a freak show and anyone who chooses to keep it is a carnival barker. In today's entertainment world, weirdos -- especially sexual weirdos -- drive a juicy plot, so virgins are in vogue, as a target or merely as an anthropological curiosity.

Humberto Fontova | August 01, 2014

Maybe it’s just a coincidence that somebody like Jesse Ventura is also a major fan of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara? (Or claims to be for the publicity value among the “hip”?)

Paul Greenberg | August 01, 2014

The innocent American could only read the headlines and shake his head sorrowfully at the continuing carnage in Gaza -- a pillar of fire by night and a cloud of smoke by day. How did this happen again? Simple: Hamas renewed its indiscriminate attacks on Israel through overhead rockets, underground tunnels, words and deeds -- and Israel finally responded in force.

Michelle Malkin | August 01, 2014

The lofty motto of the Environmental Protection Agency is "protecting people and the environment."

Mark Davis | August 01, 2014

There were two things Jesse Ventura was never supposed to win: the 1998 Minnesota Governor’s race, and his just-ended trial seeking a big payday from a hero’s widow.

Michael Barone | August 01, 2014

Bipartisanship is dead. That's the conventional wisdom, and there's a lot of evidence to support it.

Jonah Goldberg | August 01, 2014

?Throughout my life, various Republicans have suggested amending the Constitution in one way or another. A few years ago, they suggested revising the 14th Amendment to get rid of automatic birthright citizenship. Before that, some proposed amending the Constitution to lock in the traditional definition of marriage. Ronald Reagan wanted a presidential line-item veto added to the Constitution.

David Limbaugh | August 01, 2014

Have we arrived at the point in our nation that a Democratic president and powerful members of his administration can act as lawlessly as they choose without any significant objection or protest from the Democratic Party, the liberal media and Democratic voters?

John Ransom | August 01, 2014

We can’t fix Social Security; we can only destroy the myths surrounding it before those myths destroy us. Because if we continue to drift in this way, one day a group of people will assemble, like they did in the old Soviet Union, and demand by force the justice that government denied them economically.

Mona Charen | August 01, 2014

Last week, The Washington Post's Tehran, Iran, correspondent was arrested. The charges are unspecified, but according to the paper, Jason Rezaian, 38; his Iranian wife, Yeganeh Salehi; and two other U.S. citizens were detained. State Department spokesman Marie Harf issued a protest that didn't even rise to the level of tepid, saying "Our highest priority is the safety and welfare of U.S. citizens abroad."

Pat Buchanan | August 01, 2014

According to Rep. Luis Gutierrez, Obama intends "to act broadly and generously" on behalf of the "millions and millions" of illegal immigrants in the United States today.

Suzanne Fields | August 01, 2014

The front pages across the world tell an old and familiar story. Hatred of the Jews is back. The sons and daughters of Abraham enjoyed a brief respite from an ancient hatred, but it was only an intermission. The old story never ends.

David Harsanyi | August 01, 2014

Let's concede for a moment that most of us don't believe the United States should be taking sides in conflicts abroad. Even so, most Americans would probably agree that at a minimum, our diplomatic efforts should not cause unnecessary harm. Which brings me to Secretary of State John Kerry's recent misadventure in the Middle East.

Linda Chavez | August 01, 2014

The pictures are horrific: schoolroom walls covered in blood, parents running with injured children against a backdrop of bombed-out rubble, women with outstretched arms imploring Heaven. But they do not tell the full story of what is happening in Gaza any more than the casualty or rocket tallies printed daily in The New York Times and elsewhere do.

Donald Lambro | August 01, 2014

WASHINGTON - Barack Obama has been saying that Americans are doing a lot better than they were before he was sworn into office in 2009.

Nicholas Vardy | August 01, 2014

When you buy a share of Facebook (FB), this stock carries U.S. dollar risk with it. You just don’t think about it because the U.S. government does not have a history of announcing an overnight currency devaluation — as governments elsewhere in the world have done in the past.

Ransom Notes Radio | August 01, 2014

Hillary Clinton’s ‘reset’ of American relations with Russia has been pretty abysmal… But why let a little thing like geopolitics get in the way of a crony-capitalism love affair? Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, investigative journalist and Washington Times contributor, joined the show to talk about America’s reliance on Russian space technology.

Mike Shedlock | August 01, 2014

We've tried everything else, and it did not work. Can we please try "free markets" with the minimum number of regulations and laws needed to preserve property rights, preserved human rights, and prevent fraud?

Daniel J. Mitchell | August 01, 2014

The real question, though, is whether politicians in America would be willing to adopt the entitlement reforms that are needed to control the long-run growth of spending.?

Political Calculations | August 01, 2014

You can bet that the political activists who mindlessly cite the IDES' data in their calls to crank up the federal government's extended unemployment benefits program will be happy to never see that data updated beyond February 2014.

Charlotte Hays | August 01, 2014

?President Obama has taken to having sit down lunches with people who write him letters. I wonder if I could get a free burger from POTUS if I wrote him a heartfelt letter about my “too damn high” grocery bills. A free burger certainly would not come amiss in times such as these.

Phil Kerpen | August 01, 2014

?The language in the Obamacare statute has always been crystal clear. Eligibility for the "affordability tax credit," or subsidy, requires enrollment "through an Exchange established by the State under 1311 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act."

Charles Payne | August 01, 2014

The War on Business has been unrelenting during this administration, and with a little more than two years left (and the love affair of executive orders), the battles will become more intense.

John Nantz | August 01, 2014

The Hamas propaganda machine is running full throttle, pumping out disinformation faster than their murderous barrage of indiscriminate missiles, tunneling like grubs into the psyche of the unsuspecting.

Sextili became August eight years after the birth of Christ to honor Emperor Augustus. While August may have worked out well for Augustus, for American politicians August tends to be a month of scandal and trouble.

Paul Greenberg | July 31, 2014

I can understand why Mr. William Widmer's first sight of Pine Bluff caught his artist's eye. "It was a clear, crisp Southern winter day," he recalls, "and downtown was still and vacant. That first walk, the light was perfect down Main Street."

When the Government Accountability Office - better known as the GAO - released that number, it was like finding a Kenyan birth certificate with the name "Barry Obama" written in official Swahili.

Michele Bachmann | July 31, 2014

This past weekend I did what President Obama refused to do during his recent trip to Texas—I visited the U.S-Mexico border.

Michael Schaus | July 31, 2014

Eric Holder is suing a state police force, because their employment requirements for women are the same as those for men… Whoa. So this is what “progress” looks like, huh?

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | July 31, 2014

While the Republican candidates are being fair when they tie the Democratic nominee to the Obama administration, they must do more than hope that Democrats can't persuade voters to go to the polls.

Victor Davis Hanson | July 31, 2014

The Obama administration often denies any responsibility for the current global chaos or claims that it erupted spontaneously. Yet most of the mess was caused by, or made worse by, growing U.S. indifference and paralysis.

Derek Hunter | July 31, 2014

?Democrats are getting desperate.

Larry Elder | July 31, 2014

Last week, by 2-1 vote, a Washington, D.C., appellate panel ruled that the Obama administration unlawfully changed Obamacare. Meanwhile, on the same day, on the same question, a panel from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the other way. This issue is headed for the Supreme Court.

Judge Andrew Napolitano | July 31, 2014

It has been well established under the Constitution and throughout our history that the president's job as the chief federal law enforcement officer permits him to put his ideological stamp on the nature of the work done by the executive branch. The courts have characterized this stamp as "discretion."

John Ransom | July 31, 2014

What Obama giveth, Obama can take away, and his power—at least in his own mind—recognizes no borders. You know? Except, of course, the border with Mexico which, he assures us, is secure. And the constitution, which he tells us he’s an expert on.

Cal Thomas | July 31, 2014

World War I began as most wars do with patriotic fervor and predictions of a quick end. It lasted four years.

Debra J. Saunders | July 31, 2014

In June, President Barack Obama sent a letter to Congress asking for help to address the surge of illegal crossings at the Texas-Mexico border. Among other items, Obama asked Congress to grant him the legal authority "to exercise discretion in processing the return and removal of unaccompanied minor children from non-contiguous countries like Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador."

Matt Towery | July 31, 2014

With every word spoken and every roll of his eyes, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry makes it clear that the Obama administration is no fan of Israel. So why is it that media will not call the White House on this major shift in American foreign policy?

Emmett Tyrrell | July 31, 2014

For some reason the scandals that these books reveal never sinks into the American mind. Today, despite Bill Clinton's public record of shoddy financial deals, brutal politics and endless abuse of women, he is the most beloved of recent presidents.

?If we’re going to fight the toxins that constantly threaten our culture, we have to make certain that we go about it the right way.

Steve Chapman | July 31, 2014

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

Ransom Notes Radio | July 31, 2014

Obama’s war on coal is getting kicked into overdrive by the EPA. They must be taking notes from Putin’s adventures in Ukraine. Terry Jarrett, former Missouri PUC commissioner, joined the show to talk to John about the EPA’s war on coal.

Mike Shedlock | July 31, 2014

The article's "global warming" slant is of course ridiculous. Yet, the article does expose the hypocrisy of the Obama administration on that subject.

Charles Payne | July 31, 2014

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

Dr. Ben Carson | July 30, 2014

The Obama administration's recent failures in the foreign-policy arena have only highlighted how far American leadership has fallen in this new century. From the Middle East to Eurasia, it often seems that President Obama is reacting to events instead of trying to shape them. Americans have begun to see his collective failures as an indictment on his presidency, and they long for clarity and purpose from their president.

The tolerance that secular progressives boast, however, is little more than a hollow facade.

Daniel J. Mitchell | July 30, 2014

It’s a bad idea when governments demand information on your bank accounts and investments so they can impose economically destructive double taxation. It’s a worse idea when they also demand the right to tax economic activity in other jurisdictions (otherwise known as “worldwide taxation“).

When it comes to defending Obamacare subsidies, the Justice Department appears none too eager to take its case to the Supreme Court. Instead, the administration announced it would appeal Tuesday’s adverse ruling by a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to… the full D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. President Obama, it seems, likes his chances with the full court. And why not? He “hand-packed” it himself.

The EPA's war on coal is no less than a war on seniors and our nation's most vulnerable. Seniors on fixed and diminishing incomes pay a disproportionate share of their monthly budget on utilities, and Obama's EPA will serve only to make them poorer and more vulnerable.

There is a growing battle between the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and the Democrat-controlled White House.

You and I avoid visiting the doctor by eating well. Doctors like Lee Silverman carry concealed in order to care for us when we do need them.

Yesterday my oldest Army buddy lost his foster son to cancer. Sadly Maryland, which funds almost everything, will not provide enough funds for in ground burial of foster children.

Star Parker | July 28, 2014

America is supposed to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Mike Adams | July 28, 2014

In the fall of 2011, Breanne Fahs, an Arizona State University (ASU) Women’s and Gender Studies professor, taught a course called “Psychology of Gender.”

Kristen Bell. You were so great as sassy, wisecracking teen detective in Veronica Mars. And I teared up right along with you about sloths on the Ellen Show. But while your Mary Poppins spoof to pump up support for raising the minimum wage was definitely cute and well-produced, it was a little fact-challenged.

John Ransom | July 28, 2014

Like you, I'm suspicious of any group of scientists that live in a “kingdom” that can’t even practice general dentistry correctly. Or healthcare. Or, apparently, math.

Rachel Alexander | July 28, 2014

What’s happening in Arizona right now is sufficient to make every conservative shudder.

Matt Barber | July 28, 2014

Israel is not tame. But she is good.

Shawn Mitchell | July 28, 2014

Some on the Left barely conceal their disdain for the world-changing handiwork of dead white males.

Mike Shedlock | July 28, 2014

Doudet's main charge is exceptionally poor service. It took numerous complaints to three sets of servers for Doudet to get drinks and an appetizer before her main course arrived.

Daniel J. Mitchell | July 28, 2014

As you can see from these excerpts, there’s apparently now a rule in China limiting public officials to no more than three mistresses.

Mark Baisley | July 28, 2014

Mark Udall is a classic example of the methodology by which life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness are being choked out of the American people.

Mike Shedlock | July 27, 2014

When it comes to the propaganda war, McCain and his primary war-mongering ally (none other than president Obama) are clearly winning! The only difference between the two is McCain is a far bigger war-monger than Obama.

Jeff Jacoby | July 27, 2014

Perfect candor wasn't Richard Nixon's strong suit.

Michael Brown | July 27, 2014

Are you ready to take a little test? I’m going to ask a series of short, informational questions followed by one philosophical question, so the test is in two parts.

Kurt Schlichter | July 27, 2014

Conservatism is the Ramones at CBGB – loud, fast and alive.

Derek Hunter | July 27, 2014

Remember the old saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me”? It’s meaningless now.

John Ransom | July 27, 2014

Only a cow-pated idiot liberal would do math as you do, then think to lecture someone who is merely being funny.

Doug Giles | July 27, 2014

You gotta love the Left. They sure know how to make the people who don’t drink their Kool-Aid look like el Diablo’s nasty sister.

Greg Walden | July 27, 2014

Back in January, Nancy Pelosi had an infamous interview with Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show” that crystalizes what the 2014 election – just 100 days from today – is really all about.

Debra J. Saunders | July 27, 2014

The FBI's motto is "Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity." But given the FBI sting against Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow -- a convicted felon who was freed from prison in 2003 because the feds got him to testify against a confederate -- I suspect that a more apt motto might be "Fuggedaboutit."

Bruce Bialosky | July 27, 2014

Any parent who tells you that they have never struggled with a child most likely is playing a little loose with the truth.

Steve Chapman | July 27, 2014

The world is a hot mess. Pro-Russian separatists shot down a passenger jet over Ukraine. Iraq is under siege from Islamic radicals, the Taliban is rebounding in Afghanistan and civil war grinds on in Syria.

Daniel J. Mitchell | July 27, 2014

Disrespect for politicians is called political speech, and it’s (supposedly) protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution. Or at least it used to be.

Political Calculations | July 27, 2014

The feel-good bubble for solar power enthusiasts burst just days later when it became clear that 13-year old had made mistakes in his science work backing his invention.

Jeff Crouere | July 27, 2014

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer noted that Wood died in a “lawful manner” in contrast to the “gruesome, vicious suffering that he inflicted on his two victims.”

Peter Schiff | July 27, 2014

The Fed's traditional "dual mandate" seeks to balance the need for job creation and price stability. But Yellen clearly sees jobs as her top priority. Any hope that she will put these priorities aside and move forcefully to fight inflation when it officially flares up should be abandoned.

Michael Schaus | July 27, 2014

I think a leashed tiger is a reasonable alternative to armed self-protection. There’s nothing like black and orange carnivorous rage on the end of a leash to give you that warm-fuzzy feeling of self-protection. Besides, arming yourself with a concealed feline is less felonious than arming yourself with a Smith & Wesson.

Larry Kudlow | July 27, 2014

The Obama Democrats will try to push through a bill to stop foreign re-incorporations. It will never pass. And they'll keep trashing business and turning up the flame on the class-warfare burner.
