Know what you don’t know

By Thomas Sowell - Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Lots to comment on

By Thomas Sowell - Monday, August 18, 2014

Random thoughts on the passing scene: I don’t know why we are spending our hard-earned money paying taxes to support a criminal justice system, when issues of guilt and innocence are being determined on television — and even punishment is being meted out by CNN’s showing the home and address of [...]

Attempt to hurt Perry may backfire

By Larry Kudlow - Monday, August 18, 2014

The so-called “abuse of power” indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry is not only not going to hurt him in the 2016 GOP sweepstakes but it might actually help him. I say that because Perry immediately fired back at the charges with no hesitation, labeling the indictment the partisan political ploy [...]

A legal way to kill?

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Wednesday, April 23, 2014

If it’s Sunday it’s ‘Meet the Jerk’

By Michelle Malkin - Wednesday, April 23, 2014

I’ve always thought entrenched left-wing journalists in Washington needed their heads examined. Much to my satisfaction, it appears the corporate media bosses of at least one Beltway anchor now agree. According to The Washington Post this week, NBC News hired a “psychological consultant” to examine why flailing Meet the Press moderator [...]

The disarming allure of liberal intentions

By Thomas Sowell - Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Liberals can be disarming. In fact, they are for disarming anybody who can be disarmed, whether domestically or internationally. Unfortunately, the people who are the easiest to disarm are the ones who are the most peaceful — and disarming them makes them vulnerable to those who are the least peaceful. We [...]

Parents have right to be angry at testing

By Michelle Malkin - Thursday, March 20, 2014

Have you had enough of the testing tyranny? Join the club. To be clear: I’m not against all standardized academic tests. My kids excel on tests. The problem is that there are too damned many of these top-down assessments, measuring who knows what, using our children as guinea pigs and cash [...]

OK to spy on us, but not the Senate?

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, March 20, 2014

Initially, I was gratified to learn that Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was unafraid to take on the Central Intelligence Agencyover the issue of domestic spying. The CIA is limited by its charter to stealing secrets from foreigners outside the U.S. However, in a recent [...]

Sizing up last week’s unexpected congressional win by Florida Republican David Jolly, Kim Strassel of the Wall Street Journal wrote, “The Republicans who win this fall will be those who have serious answers to the attacks leveled on them — about Obamacare, the economy, women’s and seniors’ issues.” Sound advice.

‘Bossy’: Don’t ban it, girls, be it!

By Michelle Malkin - Monday, March 17, 2014

A bunch of aggrieved women led by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg launched a high-profile “public service campaign” this week to “ban” the word “bossy.” Sandberg, Beyonce, Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham and first lady Michelle Obama have joined femme forces to combat this phantom menace.

Secrecy and accountability are foes

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Monday, March 17, 2014

The government is caught up in another scandal in which federal agents have been accused of hacking into one another’s computers.

Another layer of liberty lost

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Wednesday, February 26, 2014

In the months since Edward Snowden revealed the nature and extent of the spying that the National Security Agency (NSA) has been perpetrating upon Americans and foreigners, some of the NSA’s most troublesome behavior has not been a part of the public debate.

Drama queens really dig drama

Bad boy-turned-bellyacher Alec Baldwin threw a 5,000-word, seven-page pity party for himself in the entertainment media he says he abhors. Hey, what better way for a Hollywood narcissist to protest the attention-starved shallowness of celebrity life than to wallow in it to the bitter end? The rage-filled actor’s bloated face is [...]

What really keeps people down

By Thomas Sowell - Wednesday, February 26, 2014

It seems as if, everywhere you turn these days, there are studies claiming to show that America has lost its upward mobility for people born in the lower socioeconomic levels.

This is a lawless presidency

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, February 20, 2014

The political philosopher Edmund Burke once remarked that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good folks to do nothing. A glaring example of the impending triumph of a constitutional evil that could be stopped by folks who have been largely silent is the tyranny coming from [...]

Crimes and missed-demeanors

Question: If Obamacare officials cannot prevent accused embezzlers from infiltrating their offices, how can they protect enrollees from grifters, con artists and thieves in the federal health insurance exchange system?

Defeating tyranny takes unity

Delivering us to tyranny?

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Emerging markets an emerging threat

By Larry Kudlow - Wednesday, February 5, 2014

There’s a new cynical perception among international investors that Brazil is becoming Argentina, and Argentina is becoming Venezuela. But these investors are starting to boycott all the so-called emerging markets, since nearly all of them are moving to the left, abandoning free-market principles, reverting to the bad old days of higher [...]

Obama’s NSA spying speech rings hollow

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Friday, January 24, 2014

When President Obama chose a Friday before a three-day holiday weekend to address a matter as profound as the NSA spying scandal, I suspected he would raise issues that he hoped the media would ignore. That’s because the Reagan White House did a study in the early 1980s and concluded that [...]

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a politically entrenched synod of special interests.

Liberals have long held others in contempt

By Thomas Sowell - Wednesday, January 22, 2014
