Above the Law

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, July 11, 2013

Fidelity to the rule of law is the centerpiece of a free society. It means that no one is beneath the protection of the law and no one is absolved of the obligation to comply with it. The government may not make a person or a class of persons exempt from [...]

Who Is Racist?

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, July 9, 2013

I am so old that I can remember when most of the people promoting race hate were white. Apparently other Americans also recognize that the sources of racism are different today from what they were in the past. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 31 percent of blacks think that most [...]

Essential Parenting

By Dr. Gary L. Welton - Monday, July 8, 2013

If you believe everything you read, then kids are doomed. If both of their parents work outside the home, then it’s hopeless. If one parent is a pastor, then forget about it. If one parent is missing, too bad. What if you skip on piano lessons, or soccer? What if you [...]

The Mindset of the Left: Part IV

By Thomas Sowell - Friday, July 5, 2013

At the heart of the left’s vision of the world is the implicit assumption that high-minded third parties like themselves can make better decisions for other people than those people can make for themselves. That arbitrary and unsubstantiated assumption underlies a wide spectrum of laws and policies over the years, ranging [...]

The Mindset of the Left: Part III

By Thomas Sowell - Thursday, July 4, 2013

The fundamental problem of the political left seems to be that the real world does not fit their preconceptions. Therefore they see the real world as what is wrong, and what needs to be changed, since apparently their preconceptions cannot be wrong. A never-ending source of grievances for the left is [...]

Jefferson Weeping

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, July 4, 2013

Do you have more personal liberty today than on the Fourth of July 2012? When Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, he used language that has become iconic. He wrote that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, and among them are life, liberty and the pursuit [...]

Rescuing Citizenship and Civic Virtue

By Michelle Malkin - Wednesday, July 3, 2013

As we celebrate our nation’s 237th birthday, a crucial facet of American life has all but vanished. We have forsaken, in any systematic and deliberate public manner, one of our most fundamental duties: fostering civic virtue in each and every one of our citizens. What does it mean to be an [...]

Reflections on Gettysburg

By Dr. Earl Tilford - Wednesday, July 3, 2013

It’s July in Alabama and 100 degrees in the shade. Despite the heat, I crack the bedroom window at night to soak up the sounds and smells of the South. The crickets in the woods, a hoot owl on occasion, and the smell of fresh-cut grass riding on the tinkling of [...]

The Mindset of the Left: Part II

By Thomas Sowell - Wednesday, July 3, 2013

The political left has long claimed the role of protector of “the poor.” It is one of their central moral claims to political power. But how valid is this claim? Leaders of the left in many countries have promoted policies that enable the poor to be more comfortable in their poverty. [...]

The Mindset of the Left

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, July 2, 2013

When teenage thugs are called “troubled youth” by people on the political left, that tells us more about the mindset of the left than about these young hoodlums. Seldom is there a speck of evidence that the thugs are troubled, and often there is ample evidence that they are in fact [...]

Fisher v. University of Texas: The Court Misses an Opportunity

By Dr. John A. Sparks - Tuesday, July 2, 2013

The Supreme Court, in a case heard by eight Justices (Justice Kagan recused herself), has issued its decision involving the admissions policies of the University of Texas. In a 7-1 decision, the court sent the case back to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals because that court did not apply the legal standard of [...]

Bernanke’s Bumpy Ride — Investors Beware

By Larry Kudlow - Monday, July 1, 2013

No matter how many monetary officials try to sugarcoat it with damage control, the fact remains that the Ben Bernanke Fed wants to end its quantitative-easing bond-buying operations over the next year. That was Bernanke’s statement at his last press conference, and I’ve seen nothing to contradict it. As everyone knows, [...]

Another White House Play Date with Muslim Jihad

By Michelle Malkin - Friday, June 28, 2013

Forget Paula Deen. There are far more dangerous bigots and poisonous haters spoiling the American landscape. They cook up violent rhetoric and murderous plots against our troops, our citizens and our allies 24/7. And they have direct access to the White House. Earlier this week, the indefatigable Investigative Project on Terrorism [...]

Wake Up, Gulliver: The Lilliputians Are Almost Done

By Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson - Thursday, June 27, 2013

Editor’s note: This opinion editorial first appeared at Forbes.com. Jonathan Swift’s classic novel Gulliver’s Travels—and in particular the novel’s first section in which the tiny Lilliputians immobilize Gulliver by binding him with thousands of tiny, threadlike ropes—serves as a literary metaphor for today’s American economy. While our friends on the left may [...]

The Truth Shall Keep Us Free

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, June 27, 2013

Which is more dangerous to personal liberty in a free society: a renegade who tells an inconvenient truth about government law-breaking, or government officials who lie about what the renegade revealed? That’s the core issue in the great public debate this summer, as Americans come to the realization that their government [...]

Played Out: the Liberal Racists’ “Uncle Tom” Card

By Michelle Malkin - Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Meet Ryan Patrick Winkler. He’s a 37-year-old liberal Minnesota state legislator with a B.A. in history from Harvard University and a J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School. He’s also a coward, a bigot, a liar and a textbook example of plantation progressivism. On Tuesday, Winkler took to Twitter to [...]

Random Thoughts

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Random thoughts on the passing scene: Edmund Burke said, “There is no safety for honest men, but by believing all possible evil of evil men.” Evil men do not always snarl. Some smile charmingly. Those are the most dangerous. If you don’t think the mainstream media slants the news, keep track [...]

Competition is Rapidly Changing College

By Dr. Joseph J. Horton - Monday, June 24, 2013

Is the traditional college doomed? More and more people think so. Massively open online courses (MOOCs) are threatening to shake up higher education by bringing primarily non-credit courses from college professors to the world at no cost. The California state senate, however, has just passed a bill to encourage its universities [...]

Deflationary Rate Hike?

By Larry Kudlow - Sunday, June 23, 2013

In the aftermath of Ben Bernanke’s announced timetable for ending Fed bond purchases, long-term interest rates have jumped up, while stock prices have cratered down. As I wrote yesterday, I think the Bernanke plan is premature — especially in a 2 percent economy with falling inflation and inflation expectations. But just [...]

Uncovering the Camp Bastion Cover-Up

All it takes is one crack for a stone wall to start crumbling. Nine months after the deadly 9/14 raid on Camp Bastion in Afghanistan, the families of two fallen Marines may finally get some answers. Real accountability, of course, is another story. A formal internal investigation into lax security at [...]

Bernanke Jumps the Gun

By Larry Kudlow - Friday, June 21, 2013

Without intending to — and perhaps without even realizing it — the normally cautious Fed head Ben Bernanke may have launched a major tightening policy during his news conference on Wednesday. The de facto policy shift immediately sparked a rout on Wall Street, with stock, bond and gold prices all plunging. [...]

Fidelity to the Constitution When We Need It

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, June 20, 2013

When former spy Edward Snowden revealed to the world that the federal government is spying on most Americans, most Americans were surprised and unhappy. But half of official Washington yawned before it roared. Somehow the people in the government had a pretty good idea of what government spies are doing, and [...]

The Amnesty Mob vs. America

By Michelle Malkin - Wednesday, June 19, 2013

You can try to put “conservative” lipstick on the lawless amnesty mob. In the end, however, it’s still a lawless mob. The big government/big business alliance to protect illegal immigration got a lot of mileage using foolish Republicans Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan as front men. But the true colors of [...]

The Loss of Trust

By Thomas Sowell - Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Amid all the heated cross-currents of debate about the National Security Agency’s massive surveillance program, there is a growing distrust of the Obama administration that makes weighing the costs and benefits of the NSA program itself hard to assess. The belated recognition of this administration’s contempt for the truth, for the [...]

Obama’s Definition of “Smarter Enforcement”: None

By Michelle Malkin - Friday, June 14, 2013

Welcome to Opposite World again. As the U.S. Senate geared up yesterday for the Gang of Eight illegal alien amnesty bill debate, President Obama goaded Capitol Hill to pass what he called “smarter enforcement, a pathway to earned citizenship and improvements to the legal system” of immigration. Bullcrap. The White House [...]

Barack Obama’s “Social Innovation” Slush Fund

We all know now what the vengeful Obama IRS has been doing to conservative nonprofits the past four years: strangling them in the crib. But do you know how much pampering and largesse far-left welfare-state charities have received while limited-government groups suffered? You don’t know the half of it. Before President [...]

Liberty in Shambles

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, June 13, 2013

When British soldiers were roaming the American countryside in the 1760s with lawful search warrants with which they had authorized themselves to enter the private homes of colonists in order to search for government-issued stamps, Thomas Paine wrote, “These are the times that try men’s souls.” The soul-searching became a revolution [...]

Economics vs. ‘Need’

By Thomas Sowell - Wednesday, June 12, 2013

One of the most common arguments for allowing more immigration is that there is a “need” for foreign workers to do “jobs that Americans won’t do,” especially in agriculture. One of my most vivid memories of the late Armen Alchian, an internationally renowned economist at UCLA, involved a lunch at which [...]

Sex and the Military

Scandals, Jobs and the Economy — Obama’s precariously thin margin.

By Larry Kudlow - Monday, June 10, 2013

When President Richard Nixon collided with the Watergate scandal, he was a very unpopular man. The nation at the time was suffering one of the worst recessions in history and one of the highest inflation rates, too. So Watergate sunk Dick Nixon, but for good measure, the economy sunk him even [...]
