Planes, Trains and Automobiles … and Trucks - Stephen Moore (4/5/2024)
The Environmental Protection Agency will mandate by the year 2035 that virtually every car made and sold in America must be an EV. No more gas cars. No more transportation system.

Teach Migrant Children English — Bilingual Ed Is a Scam - Betsy McCaughey (4/4/2024)
Non-English-speaking students should be given intense instruction in English when they first arrive at school and then mainstreamed to classrooms where students are taught only in English.

One More Try at Reducing the Debt - Cal Thomas (4/3/2024)
"Neither a borrower nor a lender be." —Polonius to his son Laertes in "Hamlet" It may be too late given the number of Americans who have willingly allowed themselves to become dependent on government more than themselves, but it's worth trying.

Rogue Prosecutors and the Rise of Crime - Cully Stimson (4/2/2024)
For our system to work as designed, people in each branch of government must do their jobs and stay in their respective lanes. But what happens when district attorneys — members of the state executive branches — refuse to execute the laws of t

Those Who Disavow God Entrust Their Faith to Aliens and Bigfoot - Daniel J. Flynn (4/1/2024)
Progressives' all-consuming political mindset jails political opponents, takes away the livelihoods of comedians who unveil the wrong punchlines, and rewards not excellence but obedience to prevailing dogma.

Without God, America Is On a Bridge to Nowhere - Don Feder (3/31/2024)
Without God, America looks a lot like a bridge that lies in ruins in Baltimore harbor. The collapse of the Frances Scott Key Bridge is a metaphor for our national decline.

What's Wrong With America's 'Elites'? - Laura Hollis (3/30/2024)
It is becoming increasingly clear that some of America's most serious problems can be traced back to our colleges and universities — or at least the ones educating the country's most powerful people.

NYC Subway: Where Safety Is Job No. 319 or So - Ann Coulter (3/29/2024)
Unless it's rape or murder, New York City is determined to get criminals back on the streets as quickly as possible.

Beware of Squatters - Betsy McCaughey (3/28/2024)
Homeowners who go on vacation or a business trip, even for just a week, are returning to find their house overtaken by trespassers who fraudulently claim a right to be there. It's happening to tens of thousands of homeowners nationwide.

Separating Education From Teaching - Dr. Laura Lansing (3/27/2024)
These days, educators are those who follow political trends like assessment and global initiatives. The term "educator" stinks of the "professional machine." The term brings up images of box checkers and, frankly, politicians.

Biden's Tax Plan That Puts America Last - Stephen Moore (3/26/2024)
The Biden economics team is in denial on the science. They reject the real-world evidence that high tax rates deter job growth and investment, and they pretend the rich will bear all the burden of a tax that will hurt all American workers and consumers.

The West's Descent Into Madness - Laura Hollis (3/25/2024)
If it is possible to watch a society — an entire civilization — go insane, we are watching that phenomenon in real time. Across all forms of media, the headlines bring fresh evidence daily.

Stupid Is as Stupid Does, NYT - David Strom (3/24/2024)
Promoting silliness is dangerous, and distributing nonsense like this should be beneath the Times. Unfortunately, the current Times is what Andrew Klavan calls a "former newspaper."

Build Anything Anywhere Threatens Communities - Froma Harrop (3/23/2024)
Zoning is intended to serve local needs and desires. The best examples consider geography, history and existing infrastructure. But states are now bullying towns to just build, build, build.

The Rise of Transgenderism - Armstrong Williams (3/22/2024)
America has been divided along lines of common sense by the transgender movement: those who support it and those who do not. The rise of transgenderism will persist as long as rational individuals remain reluctant to express their opinion on the matter.

The Melting Pot Myth Is Destroying America - Nate Hochman (3/21/2024)
Nobody, to our knowledge, has ever accused Rep. Ilhan Omar of being a nationalist. But if her recently surfaced comments about Somalia are any indication, she is, in fact, an ardent one — just not for the nation of America.

Is Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils Still Voting for Evil? - Everett Piper (3/20/2024)
We must vote for Donald Trump, not because we agree with his temperament or his moral libertinism. We must vote for him because he is the only candidate, at present, who will stand in the way of a greater evil.

The Real Obstacle to Immigration Reform - Scott Rasmussen (3/19/2024)
The only path forward at the time was to secure the border first. More than a decade has passed, and nothing has changed. The only path forward is to look to, listen to, and follow what the American people are really saying.

Elite Heaven or Real Hell on Earth? - Victor Davis Hanson (3/18/2024)
America needs to recalibrate its priorities to protect the lives and aspirations of all its citizens, regardless of their race and gender.

What Happened to West Point? - Douglas Andrews (3/17/2024)
When we think of West Point, we immediately think of its graduates: Men like Grant, Sherman, Lee, Jackson, Pershing, MacArthur, Patton, and Ike.

The Left's Flawed Response to School Fights - Scarlen Valderaz (3/16/2024)
School fights are as old as time, but their recent popularity as social media content is something new. Many are appalled that such violence takes place, and they wonder how this behavior is allowed to persist.

'Activism' Is Not an Educational Goal - Auguste Meyrat (3/15/2024)
Ever since Barack Obama entered the Oval Office, activism has become wrongly associated with education, leadership, and civic duty. Obama always told young people to follow his example by disrupting the status quo, spreading awareness, and protesting.

President and Congress Need an Intervention - Cal Thomas (3/14/2024)
Their addiction to spending exceeds anything seen in history. Basic economics appears among the casualties of what is not taught in today's public schools and universities.

A $7.3 Trillion Nightmare - Nate Jackson (3/13/2024)
When Biden took office, the national debt was $27.7 trillion, but here we are, $34.5 trillion in debt and counting, and all President Fiscal Responsibility wants to do is tax more and spend even more than that.

Government Gone Wild - Chris Talgo (3/12/2024)
Incredibly, for the citizens of Minnesota, it could soon be against the law to paint a wall, ceiling, or anything else for that matter inside one's own home without a licensed painter present.

Politicians Excel at Lying - Cal Thomas (3/11/2024)
When it comes to Washington (the city, not George), if you never trust a politician you will never be disappointed.

The Renewable Scam - John Stossel (3/10/2024)
"We're building a clean energy future," says President Joe Biden. Who is "we"? Well, you pay for it. He and his "green" cronies do most of the building.

Unconstitutional FISA Warrants Must Be Blocked Irrespective of Spending Bills - Ken Blackwell (3/9/2024)
Supporters of the status quo know that a bill that reauthorizes FISA with no reforms would have a very hard time passing as a standalone bill. So they've been looking at options to insert them into federal spending bills.

The Left-Right Divide Is Not Bridgeable - Dennis Prager (3/8/2024)
Millions of Americans, depressed by the ideological divide in America, harbor a wish that something or someone can bridge this divide. This wish is understandable. But it is fantasy.

The Migrant Surge Brings Killers and Criminal Gangs - Betsy McCaughey (3/7/2024)
Public safety is visibly spiraling downward: migrants beating cops in Times Square, migrants running prostitution rings, migrants on mopeds robbing pedestrians, migrants shoplifting and stripping retail stores.

The Day Joe Biden Blew Up the Border - Rich Lowry (3/6/2024)
Joe Biden was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2021. Less than two weeks later, on Feb. 2, he issued the executive order that began the unraveling at the border in earnest.

American Paralysis and Decline - Victor Davis Hanson (3/5/2024)
Societies do not always collapse from a lack of wealth, invasion, or natural catastrophes. Most often, they know what is destroying them.

If This Is 'Christian Nationalism,' Sign Me Up! - David Harsanyi (3/4/2024)
"Christian nationalism" sounds identical to the case for American liberty offered in the Declaration of Independence. Then again, the idea that man has inalienable, universal rights goes back to ancient Greece, at least.

Inside the Latest Biden Showdown With Second Amendment Devotees - James Bovard (3/3/2024)
Biden is denouncing "the rising tide of extremism" and demonizing American gun owners to boost his re-election campaign. He wants to outlaw rifles with an arbitrary list of characteristics he labels "assault weapon." Oh, we never, ever learn.

NFL Has Become a Woke, Discriminatory, Anti-American Institution - Hans von Spakovsky (3/2/2024)
The racist, discriminatory move is part of the "woke" agenda pushed by the radical ideologues who have invaded so many of our institutions. They hate this nation, its culture, and its history, and they think America is the source of all the world's ev

Taxation Without Reason - John Stossel (3/1/2024)
American colonists started a revolution partly over taxes. They raided British ships and dumped their tea into the Boston Harbor to protest a tax of "3 pennies per pound."

How Corrupt Are Democrats? This Corrupt... - David Strom (2/29/2024)
California's new $20 min wage law exempts restaurants that bake and sell bread, where bread is defined to exclude bagels and croissants. Only benefits Panera. Newsom mega-donor owns >24 Paneras.

Middle America Is Dying Hard - Salena Zito (2/28/2024)
We are heading once again into an election where very few people in Washington truly understand how remarkably devastating an industrial plant closure is. Instead, it is a wire story at best, soon forgotten if measured at all.

While Biden Pushes Ukraine To Fight, He Demands Israel Surrender - David Harsanyi (2/27/2024)
While Ukraine is prodded by the U.S. to fight for every inch of its land, Israel is prodded to commit suicide. Anyone who dares to suggest the United States push Ukraine to negotiate a settlement with Russia is framed as a democracy-hating Putin shill.

Biden's Nonsensical Immigration Bill - Armstrong Williams (2/26/2024)
A masterpiece of duplicity is President Joe Biden. You would assume that after decades in the Senate, he would have gained some knowledge of how to legislate. But no.

Blue Laws For Red Citizens - Victor Davis Hanson (2/25/2024)
There are eerie commonalities in all five court cases involving plaintiff E. Jean Carroll, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, NY Attorney General Letitia James, federal special counsel Jack Smith, and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

Constitution? What Constitution? - David Strom (2/24/2024)
We keep on being gaslit with the argument that Joe Biden is dedicated to preserving the norms and laws of our Republic, while Trump is bent on destroying our Constitutional Republic.

Good News: Fertilized Embryos Are Human Lives, Says Alabama - Emmy Griffin (2/23/2024)
The court did not say that one can no longer receive in vitro fertilization or that one cannot freeze fertilized eggs. It said that the fertility clinic should be held responsible for the loss of life under its watch.

Migrant Crime Is Turning Cities Into War Zones - Betsy McCaughey (2/22/2024)
Gang members recruit migrants from shelters and as they come off buses from Texas, putting them to work in retail theft rings or on mopeds grabbing phones and handbags and roughing up pedestrians.

Is Tucker Carlson Right About America's Cities? - Laura Hollis (2/21/2024)
How did it happen? How did the quality of life in American cities become so awful? It is leftism — its philosophy and politics — in action.

The Biden, Schumer, Romney Foreign Aid Budget Buster - Stephen Moore (2/20/2024)
If spending more on Israel and Ukraine is such a vital priority for America, surely we could cut a mere 2 cents out of the dollar from every other program to pay for it.

America Is At War With Itself and Abroad - Andrew P. Napolitano (2/19/2024)
America today epitomizes a culture of death. At home, America is at war with itself. The government permits the slaughter of babies in the womb and teaches children in government schools how to change genders.

The Left and Chaos - Dennis Prager (2/18/2024)
It is impossible to understand what is happening to America — and to the rest of the West — without understanding the most dynamic ideology of the last hundred years: leftism.

The 25th Amendment and a Disabled President - Hans von Spakovsky (2/17/2024)
Many are asking what, if anything, can be done about this "elderly man with a poor memory", who could endanger the safety and well-being of the entire nation?

CFPB Dabbling in Banking Puts Us at Risk - Veronique de Rugy (2/16/2024)
Many who see overdraft protection as preferable to other short-term credit options will have fewer choices as some banks decide the service isn't worth offering anymore.
