Thomas Sowell - Tue Sep 4

This is an election year, which means all of us will spend the next few months carefully following the campaigns, finding out all we can about the candidates' proposals and pondering what issues are most vital for the nation's future. ... more

On December 13, 2011, Michael Gerson posted “Gingrich’s Embrace of Shallow Ideas” on TownHall.com. In this column, he blasted former Speaker Gingrich for his honest assessment of Sharia law, its implications in the West, in general, and the United States, in particular. ... more

Toward the end of Hamlet, the Queen remarks, "One woe doth tread upon another's heel, so fast they follow." I was reminded of her doleful remark Wednesday as the president promoted his latest inane budget-busting panacea. ... more

Tony Marsh - Wed Nov 2

Both Labor and Occupy bemoan a dilapidated economy that can’t create jobs; both blame capitalism for the paucity of those jobs, and both are bent on a series of actions that assures the U.S. never sees the jobs they each claim to want. ... more

The ink was barely dry on the asterisk in Jimmy Hoffa Jr.’s rant about taking out those “sons-of-b*tches”—referring to Tea Party members—when the vice president made his own contribution at a Labor Day rally. “This is a fight for the existence of organized labor,” the veep shouted. “You are the only ones who can stop the barbarians at the gate!” And the diatribes have continued, with the establishment of a website designed to track unfair comments made by those who, in President Obama’s words, want to “cripple” America. Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ snippet about telling the Tea Party to “Go to H*ll!” (that pesky asterisk again ... more

I hate to say it, but watching the various YouTube videos of the Occupy Wall Street protests and reading accounts of protesters' goals and "demands," prompts me to shake my head with a resigned, "I told you so." ... more

From now on, parents who plan to send their children abroad to study in a foreign nation should sit them down in front of the TV set and watch replays of the Amanda Knox saga. It has all the elements of a true-to-life lesson in the dangers of turning young men and women barely out of their teens into innocents abroad. ... more

Chris W. Cox - Tue Oct 4

If our President and his Attorney General won’t help Congress get to the bottom of this scandal, it is imperative that an independent prosecutor be assigned to this case. ... more

Mike Adams - Mon Sep 26

As the states go deeper and deeper into debt, liberals keep finding new ways to go deeper and deeper into our pocket books to teach people things they could easily learn by themselves. There is no better example than the recent spate of universities that have decided to help lost and helpless homosexuals find themselves spiritually. This sudden revival of interest in religion in our secular universities is a queer one, indeed. ... more

Michael Youssef - Sun Sep 25

For a person who loves people regardless of their chosen sin, I am flabbergasted - but not surprised - by this runaway train that leads us to the same fate of Sodom and Gomorrah. ... more

For the third straight year, the median income of the typical American family fell in 2010. Adjusted for inflation, it is back where it was in 1996, the longest period of zero growth since the Depression. ... more

Armstrong Williams - Tue Sep 6

Perhaps one of the most misunderstood minorities today is not racial or ethnic. In fact, the minority I'm referring to comes with people of every race, color, creed and religion - the wealthy. ... more
