The Left on Townhall

Dennis Prager - Tue Mar 12

Denver television station CBS4 reports that Colorado has seen a sharp spike in marijuana use among teenagers since Colorado voters passed Amendment 64 last November legalizing recreational use of the drug. ... more

Bruce Bialosky - Mon Feb 25

Ronald Reagan spent the better part of a lifetime baffling the Left and often defeating them in the court of public opinion. Other Republicans have been battling the last twenty years to defund the left, particularly unions who get automatic payments through Dropbox without members having any say, or how plaintiff attorneys use their vast influence to buy Democratic officials who turn around and pass laws that line their pockets with more lawsuits. ... more

Ben Shapiro - Fri Feb 15

Last week, former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner went on a murderous rampage throughout Southern California, shooting seven people, including five members of law enforcement, killing three. ... more

Jerry Bowyer - Fri Feb 15

One of the first things one notices, if one is a regular viewer of BBC productions, is that Downton is unusually ideologically and religiously balanced. One of the other effects one notices when one watches a lot of BBC is that one starts referring to oneself in the third rather than the first person. ... more

David Harsanyi - Thu Jan 31

So, U.S. consumer confidence unexpectedly plunged in January to its lowest level in more than a year. The U.S. economy unexpectedly posted a contraction in the fourth quarter of 2012 -- for the first time since the recession -- "defying" expectations that economic growth is in our future. ... more

Ben Shapiro - Wed Jan 9

This week's column is brought to you by the word "a--holes." It's one of the left's favorite words these days, fond as they are of shutting down the debate and casting their political opponents out like lepers. ... more

Brent Bozell - Fri Jan 4

In August, Rupert Murdoch's FX picked up a Cold War series set in the 1980s titled "The Americans." Liberals might have braced themselves for the worst. It sounded like some kind of Chuck Norris-style "jingoistic" homage to freedom-loving intelligence agents. But this is Hollywood, so the show instead focuses on KGB spies who speak perfect English, working to destroy Reagan-era America, which is not altogether a bad thing to people in Hollywood. ... more

Douglas MacKinnon - Thu Dec 13

News flash for conservatives, Christians, libertarians or anyone in America who embraces traditional values, the rule of law, common sense, basic math, a more secure nation or politicians who put you and your family first: You have lost or are losing across the board. Period. ... more

Marvin Olasky - Wed Nov 28

The second book of Kings in the Old Testament is a usefully depressing history on national decline. It starts with fire coming down from heaven to convince a king, and Elijah ascending to heaven via chariots of fire. It ends with the former king of Judah taken into captivity and dependent on the ruler of Babylon, who condescends to give him an allowance. ... more

Elisabeth Meinecke - Mon Oct 29

Lisa De Pasquale - Mon Oct 15

Over two years ago I was inspired to start this column after talking with Andrew Breitbart about the importance of conservatives engaging in the pop culture discussion. However, the most important lesson I learned from Breitbart was that conservatives should not be afraid to confront the Left. ... more

Victor Davis Hanson - Thu Oct 4

The American Left used to champion free expression. We were lectured -- correctly -- that the price of being repulsed by occasional crude talk and art was worth paying. Only that way could Americans ensure our daily right to criticize those with greater power and influence whom we found wrong and objectionable. ... more

Jack Kerwick - Thu Sep 6

Addressing the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night, First Lady Michelle Obama told audiences that, ultimately, her husband’s ambitious agenda is not political, but personal. ... more

Jonah Goldberg - Fri May 11

For most of 2012, President Obama has been running in the Democratic primary. I know that seems odd given that he's essentially running unopposed. Though don't tell that to West Virginia Democrats, who cast nearly half of their votes for Keith Judd, an inmate currently serving time in a Texarkana, Texas, prison. ... more

Ben Shapiro - Wed Apr 18

America is a land of class mobility. That's what makes America a magnet destination for people all over the world: Come to America and make something of yourself. ... more

David Limbaugh - Fri Apr 13

Though everyone is talking about Democratic strategist and Obama confidant Hilary Rosen's insolent remarks about Ann Romney, I want to discuss them, too, because they reveal her leftist mindset. ... more

John Hawkins - Fri Apr 13

Saul Alinsky was a brilliant man. Evil, but brilliant. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not, everyone on the Left from the President on down is playing by his rules in the political arena. ... more

Derek Hunter - Sun Apr 8

I’ve sat by and watched progressives attack our liberties, our Constitution and our way of life for long enough. No more. ... more

Tony Katz - Fri Mar 30

Obamacare's run through the Supreme Court has been a disaster. It has been described as a "train wreck." ... more

David Limbaugh - Fri Mar 30

You can't even casually surf the Internet on any given day without numerous reminders of just how radical President Obama is -- and this is during an election year, when it should be in his political interest to mask his radicalism. ... more

John Hawkins - Fri Mar 30

You have to give liberalism a certain amount of credit. It doesn’t work, destroys lives, and pits people against each other, but that's not to say that there are no advantages to being a liberal. ... more

Ben Shapiro - Wed Mar 28

The facts of the Trayvon Martin case are still unclear. But that hasn't stopped the all-knowing, all-seeing President Obama from voicing his opinion of the situation. "You know," said Obama, "if I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon. All of us have to do some soul-searching to figure out how does something like this happen." ... more

Daniel J. Mitchell - Mon Mar 26

Their problem is a naive assumption that bad people will obey laws banning gun ownership and possession. Or a flawed assumption that the police can be everywhere. ... more
