Guns and the President

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, January 24, 2013

Here is an uncomfortable pop quiz: Who has killed more children, Adam Lanza or Barack Obama? We’ll hold off on the answer for a few paragraphs while we look at the state of governmental excess — including killing — in America. But you can probably guess the correct answer from the [...]

Rotten to the Core: Obama’s War on Academic Standards (Part 1)

By Michelle Malkin - Wednesday, January 23, 2013

America’s downfall doesn’t begin with the “low-information voter.” It starts with the no-knowledge student. For decades, collectivist agitators in our schools have chipped away at academic excellence in the name of fairness, diversity and social justice. “Progressive” reformers denounced Western civilization requirements, the Founding Fathers and the Great Books as racist.

Do Gun Control Laws Control Guns?

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, January 22, 2013

The gun control controversy is only the latest of many issues to be debated almost solely in terms of fixed preconceptions, with little or no examination of hard facts. Media discussions of gun control are dominated by two factors: the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment. But the over-riding factual [...]

Without Deep Spending Cuts, Republicans Lose the House in 2014

By Larry Kudlow - Tuesday, January 22, 2013

OK, it’s official. According to the Treasury Department, the U.S. debt jumped to $16.1 trillion in 2012 from $14.8 trillion in 2011. That’s a $1.3 trillion deficit for the last year. Remarkable. During President Obama’s first term, the federal debt rose by roughly $6 trillion. Now, if they are bold, House [...]

Anti-American Asians Don’t Speak for Me

By Michelle Malkin - Friday, January 18, 2013

Martial arts movie legend Jackie Chan deserves a rhetorical roundhouse kick to the mouth. So does his pal PSY, the Korean rapper whose “Gangnam Style” music video has racked up more than a billion views worldwide. Both men have raked in big bucks from Western fans while trashing the very freedoms [...]

Guns and the Government

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, January 17, 2013

Prop-a-palooza: The Use and Abuse of Kiddie Human Shields

By Michelle Malkin - Wednesday, January 16, 2013

The president of the United States will release a binder full of new gun-control executive orders on Wednesday.

Liberalism Versus Blacks

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, January 15, 2013

There is no question that liberals do an impressive job of expressing concern for blacks. But do the intentions expressed in their words match the actual consequences of their deeds? San Francisco is a classic example of a city unexcelled in its liberalism. But the black population of San Francisco today [...]

An Unqualified Jack Lew Will Tax and Spend

By Larry Kudlow - Sunday, January 13, 2013

The worst part of the Jack Lew nomination for treasury secretary is not simply that he has no qualifications, standing or experience in the financial world or international sphere (think G20 and European debt crisis). Nor is it simply that he doesn’t have any seasoned currency opinions (under Obama, the greenback [...]

EBT Abuse: The Cash-for-Drunkards Program

By Michelle Malkin - Friday, January 11, 2013

From New York to New Mexico and across the dependent plains, welfare recipients are getting sauced on the public dime. Drunk, besotted, bombed. But while politicians pay lip service to cutting government waste, fraud and abuse, they’re doing very little in practice to stop the EBT party excesses. Where’s the compassion [...]

Guns and Freedom

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Friday, January 11, 2013

The right of the people to keep and bear arms is an extension of the natural right to self-defense and a hallmark of personal sovereignty. It is specifically insulated from governmental interference by the Constitution and has historically been the linchpin of resistance to tyranny. And yet, the progressives in both [...]

The Blind Sheik and Our Mute President

By Michelle Malkin - Wednesday, January 9, 2013

Egypt’s terror-coddling President Mohamed Morsi has repeated his arrogant demand that America free convicted 1993 World Trade Center mastermind Omar Abdel-Rahman. I’d like to report that President Obama repeated his unequivocal rejection of the Muslim Brotherhood leader’s entreaties. But as of this writing, no such public statement or restatement yet exists.

The Role of ‘Educators’

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Many years ago, as a young man, I read a very interesting book about the rise of the Communists to power in China. In the last chapter, the author tried to explain why and how this had happened. Among the factors he cited were the country’s educators. That struck me as [...]

One Cheer for the Cliff Deal

By Larry Kudlow - Friday, January 4, 2013

One cheer out of a potential three is all anyone can logically give the fiscal-cliff deal. On the day after the bargain was clinched, the stock market gave a 300-point cheer. So be it. In the short run, extending tax cuts up to $450,000 probably saved us from a recession. If [...]

Homeless in California

By Peter Bernard - Thursday, January 3, 2013

Leave it to a California legislator to devise an altogether outrageous solution to an all too real problem.  Assemblyman Tom Ammiano is sending a proposal to the state legislature for a “Homeless Persons’ Bill of Rights.” In the December 17edition of Bay View, Ammiano’s Communications Director, Carlo Alcala, said, “The act [...]

Obama’s Tax Evaders of the Year

By Michelle Malkin - Wednesday, January 2, 2013

President Obama will kick off the new year the same way that he kicked off the old year: by demanding that the wealthy pay their “fair share” in taxes. But while millions of small-business owners, struggling entrepreneurs, inventors and investors brace for a double whammy of fiscal cliff tax hikes and [...]

Happy New Year?

Random Thoughts

Random thoughts on the passing scene: When I was growing up, an older member of the family used to say, “What you don’t know would make a big book.” Now that I am an older member of the family, I would say to anyone, “What you don’t know would fill more [...]

Don’t Blame Boehner

By Larry Kudlow - Monday, December 24, 2012

When you lose an election, you get frustrated. When you’re sitting in a subpar 2 percent economy, and are faced with tax hikes rather than marginal rate reductions, you get even more frustrated. And when you’re staring at $47 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, and $8.6 trillion in [...]

What the Looming Port Strike Is Really About

By Michelle Malkin - Friday, December 21, 2012

It’s not about jobs. It’s not about safety. It’s not about improving dockworkers’ living standards. The looming, long-planned East and Gulf Coast port strikes are about protecting Big Labor’s archaic work practices and corrupt waterfront rackets. Are you ready for a fiscal cliff? The union bosses of an estimated 14,500 workers [...]

In the aftermath of the horrific Newtown, Conn., school massacre, Americans from all parts of the political spectrum agree that we need to pay more attention to mental health issues.

“Forward” to the Past?

By Thomas Sowell - Wednesday, December 19, 2012

The political slogan “Forward” served Barack Obama well during this year’s election campaign. It said that he was for going forward, while Republicans were for “going back to the failed policies that got us into this mess in the first place.” It was great political rhetoric and great political theater. Moreover, [...]

Invincible Ignorance

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Must every tragic mass shooting bring out the shrill ignorance of “gun control” advocates? The key fallacy of so-called gun control laws is that such laws do not in fact control guns. They simply disarm law-abiding citizens, while people bent on violence find firearms readily available.

Obama’s Electronic Medical Records Scam

By Michelle Malkin - Friday, December 14, 2012

Here’s more evidence that government “cures” are inevitably worse than the “diseases” they seek to wipe out. Buried in the trillion-dollar stimulus law of 2009 was an electronic medical records “incentive” program. Like most of President Obama’s health care rules, this top-down electronic record-sharing scheme is a big fat bust. Oversight [...]

Judge’s Mandatory Church Attendance Does Not Violate the U.S. Constitution

By Adam Freedman - Friday, December 14, 2012

Can a judge sentence you to church?  An Oklahoma judge’s decision to require a youthful offender to attend church has provoked near-universal criticism as an unconstitutional breach of religious freedom.  But the conventional wisdom is wrong: the judge’s sentence does not violate the Constitution. Shortly before Thanksgiving, Judge Mike Norman presided [...]

Government Spying Out of Control

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, December 13, 2012

After President Richard Nixon was forced from office in 1974, congressional investigators discovered what they believed was the full extent of his use of the FBI and the CIA to engage in domestic spying. In that pre-digital era, the spying consisted of listening to telephone calls, opening mail, and using undercover [...]

No Cliff Calamity: That’s What Stocks Are Correctly Predicting

Despite all the media hullabaloo about the fiscal cliff and a potential recession if none of the Bush tax cuts are extended, stock markets have behaved calmly throughout this whole period.

Taxing the Poor

By Thomas Sowell - Wednesday, December 12, 2012

With all the talk about taxing the rich, we hear very little talk about taxing the poor. Yet the marginal tax rate on someone living in poverty can sometimes be higher than the marginal tax rate on millionaires. While it is true that nearly half the households in the country pay [...]

During the holidays, a shopping mall can be more like a shopping maul. One way to avoid that scene is to give books as Christmas gifts, since books can be bought on-line, painlessly. A book that fits in with the holiday spirit is “No, They Can’t!” by TV show host John [...]

GOP Strategic Retreat?

By Larry Kudlow - Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Republicans are divided. President Obama won’t budge. And more and more, it looks like the fiscal-cliff deadline of Dec. 31 will be missed. It’s now clear that Team Obama wants higher tax rates and revenue-raising tax-deduction caps to meet their $1.6 trillion revenue target. Spending cuts and entitlement reforms are vague [...]
