Austin Hill - Sun Sep 11

Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York may think himself high-minded and practical. But he has acquiesced to some of the most unfortunate and destructive forces in our country. ... more

Frank Gaffney - Mon Aug 15

Straw polls are notoriously overrated. This observation applies especially to the over-hyped one held most recently in Ames, Iowa over the weekend. ... more

Salena Zito - Sun Aug 7

The recent debt debate was not politics at its worst or most dysfunctional. It worked exactly as American politics was designed to work. ... more

Austin Hill - Sun Aug 7

I understand the theological tensions between Mormonism and other faith traditions, and my choice to be friends with and supportive of Mormons is by no means an uninformed choice. ... more

Cal Thomas - Thu Aug 4

"We call them patriots. And those patriots just might force the vice president and his boss out of a job next November. That is their right. They have it in their power." ... more

Austin Hill - Sun Jul 17

“Did you hear about the new ‘Obama Happy Meal Deal?’” a friend posted on Facebook earlier this week. “You order whatever you want and as much as you want, and the person in line behind you has to pay for it….LOL!” ... more

Colin Hanna - Fri Jul 15

The President insists on tax increases, and the Republicans insist on no tax increases. The House Majority Leader insists on cuts greater than any debt ceiling increase, and the House Minority Leader insists on no entitlement changes. ... more

Jackie Gingrich Cushman - Thu Jul 14

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

Ken Blackwell - Wed Jul 6

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

Ken Blackwell - Sat Jul 2

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

With American politicians still refusing to substantively address the looming consequences of their fiscal irresponsibility, it only makes sense that voters are feeling frustrated and powerless. ... more

Walter E. Williams - Wed Mar 16

How can academics, politicians, news media people and ordinary citizens get away with statements such as "Reagan's budget deficits," "Clinton's budget surplus," "Bush's budget deficits and tax cuts" or "Obama's tax increases"? ... more

John C. Goodman - Tue Mar 15

I can't think of any single act of government that creates more inequality than the lottery—at least per dollar raised and spent. ... more

Howard Rich - Thu Mar 10

The Social Security debate is no different than the debate over any other government program – there are just a lot more zeroes involved. ... more

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

Brian Birdnow - Thu Feb 10

In a press conference last week New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg congratulated himself on having masterminded a sting operation wherein he sent undercover NYC agents to a gun show in Tucson, Arizona. ... more

Rich Galen - Mon Jan 24

The President is scheduled to deliver the State of the Union address in the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives at 9 o'clock tomorrow night. ... 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
