I'm not sure how it started, but at some point over the past year, when my children begin to relate some hardship in their lives -- tough tests, tough teacher or coach -- I began responding that they should think of the obstacle as "character development" rather than as an insurmountable challenge. ... more

Liberal pundits are panicking over constitutional conservatism. They shouldn’t, because every child—whether the parents are liberal or conservative—will benefit from constitutional conservatism’s ascendency. ... more

Time magazine’s cover story shows the U.S. Constitution and asks, “Does it still matter?” Reading this story, we kept waiting for Emmanuel Goldstein to show up for the Two Minutes of Hate. It was difficult to discern whether we were reading Time, or Orwells’ 1984. ... more

Frank Gaffney - Tue Jun 7

How’s this for a wake-up call: America’s most cherished civil liberties and the Constitution that enshrines them are actually enabling Muslim Brotherhood operatives and other Islamists who have the declared mission of destroying our freedoms and government “from within…by [our] hands.” ... more

Ken Klukowski - Tue Apr 26

A major law firm has caved to pressure from militant homosexual activists, and one of America’s top Supreme Court lawyers resigned from that firm rather than abandon principle. That lawyer is former U.S. Solicitor General Paul Clement, and this is a story that everyone who values the rule of law needs to understand. ... more

Brad O'Leary - Thu Apr 14

President Barack Obama, the confiscator-in-chief of your constitutional rights is at it again. As we’ve come to expect, when President Obama tramples on the Constitution it’s usually under the guise of some noble cause. ... more

Howard Rich - Thu Apr 7

Phyllis Schlafly - Tue Mar 8

The Democratic Senate is itching to pass a bill that will mean death for innovation, which is the backbone of American economic growth. Sen. Patrick Leahy's, D-Vt., bill, S. 23, is called patent reform, but it's not reform -- it will kill innovation by litigation. ... more

Phyllis Schlafly - Tue Feb 22

A national convention to amend the U.S. Constitution would become the media event of the century, with 24/7 TV coverage, giving us every reason to anticipate that "Organizing for America" would flood the process of electing delegates and then demonstrate to hurl demands on their deliberations. ... more

Phyllis Schlafly - Tue Feb 15

It looks like the Russians fooled us again in nuclear treaty negotiations. After President Obama bamboozled the Senate into a hurry-up ratification of his New START Treaty, Russia impudently rejected the Sen. McCain "understanding" that we don't have to abide by the preamble's language limiting the U.S. from building anti-missile defenses. ... more

Cal Thomas - Thu Jan 20

In 1865, the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery, rendering the three-fifths clause moot, but some House members wanted to read the original article to counter the argument of "original intent" with their own argument that the Constitution is a "living document." ... more

Kevin Miller - Thu Jan 20

On the heels of an extensive victory at the ballot box in November, conservatives can't stay united past January. ... more

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann - Sat Jan 15

Facing huge budget difficulties, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been showing other states how to survive -- namely, by taking on the government-employee unions. ... more

Stuck at home, we have seen a lot of our neighbors, and it has reminded me of the importance of community -- real community. ... more

Brian Birdnow - Mon Jan 10

The New Year, 2011, opened last week and in Washington D.C. the Republican Party celebrated the beginning of the new annum and the new decade by watching John Boehner, one of their own, take the oath of office as Speaker of the House of Representatives. ... more

Star Parker - Mon Jan 10

David Stokes - Sun Jan 9

Do all those who seem to be so enamored of a so-called “Living Constitution” really want the document to live—or are they actually trying to kill it off as a relevant part of our national life? ... more

Victor Davis Hanson - Thu Jan 6

In classical Athens, public life became dominated by clever and smart-sounding sophists. These mellifluous "really wise guys" made money and gained influence by their rhetorical boasts to "prove" the most amazing "thinkery" that belied common sense. We are living in a new age of sophism. ... more

Jackie Gingrich Cushman - Thu Jan 6

>This week, as much of the rest of the nation is packing up Christmas ornaments, trees and lights, the 112th Congress was sworn in. After the Republican victory in the midterm elections, the House of Representatives transitions from a Democratic-led institution to a Republican-led body. ... more
