K Street’s Super Committee Splurge

By Michelle Malkin - Friday, November 11, 2011

The bipartisan debt panel to nowhere is exactly where K Street lobbyists want it to be: hopelessly deadlocked. A November 23 deadline for agreement on $1.2 trillion in budget savings is looming, but no real reductions in the size, scope or spending of government are on the table. Instead, we are [...]

Winners, Losers, Misses

By Larry Kudlow - Friday, November 11, 2011

There were three winners in the CNBC debate: Herman Cain, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. Gov. Rick Perry was the obvious loser because of his memory lapse. The guy with the toughest job on Wednesday night was Cain, who has been hammered by sexual-harassment charges. He needed a strong performance to [...]

Does the Government Work for Us, or Do We Work for the Government?

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, November 10, 2011

In America, the federal government seems to control everything. Light bulbs, shoe leather, refrigerators, even the water strength in your shower. Your banker, your doctor, your lawyer, your computer all are regulated beyond belief. What is it in America that the feds can’t control? The answer is simple: human nature. We [...]

The Great Stonewall of Obama

By Michelle Malkin - Wednesday, November 9, 2011

The White House laments that America hasn’t built enough massive government infrastructure projects. Nonsense. At the rate it’s growing, the Great Stonewall of Obama may soon be the second largest manmade object visible from outer space. While many construction workers across the country remain idle, Team Obama’s attorneys have been laboring [...]

The Real Scandal

By Thomas Sowell - Wednesday, November 9, 2011

The real scandal in the accusations against Herman Cain is the corruption of the law, the media and politics. Let’s start with the law. Some people may think the fact that the National Restaurant Association reportedly paid $45,000 to settle a claim made by one of its employees against Mr. Cain [...]

Numbers Games

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, November 8, 2011

One of the things that has struck me, when I have gone on luxury cruise ships, is that most of the passengers look like they are older than the captain — and luxury cruise ships don’t have juveniles as captains. The reason for the elderly clientele is fairly simple: Most people [...]

Jobs Up, But Not Enough

By Larry Kudlow - Saturday, November 5, 2011

Despite some modest improvements in the jobs picture with the release of Friday’s Labor Department report, I would guard against any irrational overexuberance that problems with employment or the economy are being solved. A smaller-than-expected 80,000 gain in nonfarm payrolls was bolstered by upward revisions in the prior two months, amounting [...]

Obama’s Drug Shortage Demagoguery

By Michelle Malkin - Friday, November 4, 2011

President Obama couldn’t wait to trample over the legislative process again. This week, he issued his 98th executive order on an irresistibly exploitatable policy issue: prescription drug shortages. Soon, “One a Day” won’t just be a multivitamin. It’ll be the rate of White House administrative fiats. Federal officials darkly suggest that [...]

Look at What the Government Has Done with Your Money

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, November 3, 2011

The federal government has lost another 72 million of your tax dollars. Here we go again. The feds have gambled with your money again, and they’ve lost it again; this time with a company called Beacon Power. You’ve probably never heard of this company. Candidly, before the announcement of its bankruptcy [...]

Occupy Oakland’s Dangerous “Strike” Follies

By Michelle Malkin - Wednesday, November 2, 2011

The next stage of the Aimless Occupation of America is upon us: On Wednesday, rabble-rousers in the San Francisco Bay Area will walk off jobs they don’t have and encourage everyone else around the country to abandon work to protest high unemployment. The Occupiers are calling their organized day of inaction [...]

Payday Loans

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, November 1, 2011

California is a great place for studying the thinking — or lack of thinking — on the political left. The mindset of the left was recently displayed in a big, front-page story in the October 30th issue of the San Mateo County Times. It was an investigative reporter’s exposé of the [...]

Democracy Versus Mob Rule

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, November 1, 2011

In various cities across the country, mobs of mostly young, mostly incoherent, often noisy and sometimes violent demonstrators are making themselves a major nuisance. Meanwhile, many in the media are practically gushing over these “protesters,” and giving them the free publicity they crave for themselves and their cause — whatever that [...]

No Armageddon — but No Economic Victory Yet

By Larry Kudlow - Friday, October 28, 2011

The world economy has once again dodged Armageddon. The European Union finally forged a Greek bond deal, and a rescue fund big enough to ring-fence banks and sovereign debt, in order to avoid a catastrophic, Lehman-like contagion event. At the same time, the U.S. economy moved away from the threat of [...]

Shredding Kathleen Sebelius

By Michelle Malkin - Friday, October 28, 2011

If a private health insurer had engaged in the kind of criminal obstruction that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has been tied to in her home state of Kansas, it would be a federal case. Instead, it’s a non-story in the Washington press. Nothing to see here. Move along. [...]

Joe Biden: Beltway Bubble Boy

By Michelle Malkin - Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Last fall, before the midterm shellacking, Vice President Joe Biden admonished rank-and-file Democratic voters to “stop whining.” Uncle Tough Guy should practice what he screeches. The 2012 campaign has barely begun, but Biden’s thin skin makes a spring roll wrapper look impenetrable. Biden’s office is now calling for an official investigation [...]

The Media and ‘Bullying’

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Back in the 1920s, the intelligentsia on both sides of the Atlantic were loudly protesting the execution of political radicals Sacco and Vanzetti, after what they claimed was an unfair trial. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote to his young leftist friend Harold Laski, pointing out that there were “a [...]

What Have the Wars Done for You?

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Saturday, October 22, 2011

Can we fight a war, kill foreign leaders, declare victory, and then leave? How about travelling the world looking for monsters to slay? Will this keep us free and safe? In the past week, three events occurred around the globe that have great implications for American freedom. On Thursday of last [...]

The GOP Pro-Growth, Flat-Tax Competition

By Larry Kudlow - Saturday, October 22, 2011

The latest Gallup poll pegs President Obama’s approval at a new low of 41 percent. That adds to the thought that the winner of the GOP presidential-primary sweepstakes is going to be the next president. And inside that Republican contest, the policy pendulum is swinging toward pro-growth, flat-tax reform. A new [...]

Robin Hood vs. the Occupiers

By Michelle Malkin - Friday, October 21, 2011

We have entered a new phase of the endless Occupy Wall Street sleepover. Not working is hard work. After a month of tying up the police, generating mounds of trash, railing against Jews while holding up “Nazi Bankers” signs, grappling with pervs, rapists and thieves in their ranks, communing with avowed [...]

Is Freedom in America a Myth or a Reality?

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, October 20, 2011

Does the government exist to serve us or to master us? If the government exists to serve us and if freedom is part of our humanity, how can the government take freedom from us? Is human freedom in America a myth, or is it a reality? Today is the release date [...]

The EduJobs III Bailout

By Michelle Malkin - Wednesday, October 19, 2011

One of my son’s Suzuki violin teachers had a wise twist on an old saying: “If at first you don’t succeed, try something else.” The corollary? “When you do succeed, don’t stop. Do it again.” The White House could use some remedial Suzuki lessons in economics. They’ve got everything completely bass-ackward. [...]

Random Thoughts

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, October 18, 2011

Random thoughts on the passing scene: Like so many people, in so many countries, who started out to “spread the wealth,” Barack Obama has ended up spreading poverty. Have you ever heard anyone as incoherent as the people staging protests across the country? Taxpayers ought to be protesting against having their [...]

Cain the Tax-Code Killer

By Larry Kudlow - Saturday, October 15, 2011

Herman Cain is the only GOP presidential candidate who wants to kill the tax code. That’s right. Put a knife in it. Junk the entire system. And people are cheering as he rises in the polls in his quest for the nomination. Cain’s 9-9-9 plan is not perfect. But then again, [...]

Costs of the Occupiers

By Michelle Malkin - Friday, October 14, 2011

The trash generated by the “Occupy Wall Street” protests keeps piling up. So do the bills. Liberal media outlets claim the anarchic, anti-capitalist movement is more popular than the tea party. But wait until Americans across the country get a full picture of the costs of the aimless occupiers. In New [...]
