Time Magazine has just named President Obama as their Person of the Year. This has been, of course, controversial, and for the usual reasons: much like with the President’s Nobel Peace Prize, one has to wonder what he actually did to deserve it. Surely getting re-elected is important, but beside the point; what matters is what you do in office, and I just don’t see much in the way of achievement by the president this year, in which he spent most of it either campaigning or doing nothing to avoid rocking the boat before the election. ... more

If you want to see what the New Normal looks like when the American Civil Liberties Union calls the shots, look no further than Cranston, Rhode Island. That city of 80,000, the third largest in the Ocean State, is at the epicenter of the ACLU’s War on the Normal. ... more

Brent Bozell - Fri May 11

So Barack Obama declared he's all for "gay marriage." Really, was anyone surprised? Did anyone doubt it? Still, it's official, and Obama is now the rental property of Hollywood. ... more

Jonah Goldberg - Tue Feb 14

If you're not with us, you're against us. President Bush popularized this expression after 9/11 to describe his foreign policy doctrine: Countries couldn't support or indulge terrorists and be our friends at the same time. But his detractors quickly turned it into a fairly paranoid vision of domestic political life, as if Bush had been talking about domestic opponents and dissenters. ... more

Bill O'Reilly - Sat Feb 11

Mike Adams - Mon Dec 5

For the first time in a long time, I agree with the liberals. The budget cuts are unjust. In my view, they aren’t deep enough. If you disagree, consider this: One public university in North Carolina has just found money to start (in the midst of a budget crisis) a new scholarship to reward feminists for engaging in feminist political activism on the job. ... more

Mary Grabar - Tue Nov 29

In a turn-around that made the Dissident Prof’s head spin more than Linda Blair’s in The Exorcist, the Center for American Progress, the think tank co-founded by George Soros, posted several articles and held conferences praising (gasp!) the founding fathers. The respectful reference comes in an article posted last month on the organization’s web page, and co-authored by the organization’s longtime President and CEO, now chairman of the board, John Podesta, President Clinton’s Chief of Staff. ... more
