The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America - Victor Davis Hanson (4/5/2021)
Americans privately fear these rules while publicly appearing to accept them. They still could be transitory and invite a reaction. Or they are already near-permanent and institutionalized.

Less Is More - Rep. Michael Cloud (R-TX) (4/4/2021)
One of the main objectives of the great American experiment was to move away from a system of top-down rule by the powerful elite over the powerless. Instead, our Founders understood that power belonged to the people.

Biden's Plan to Fleece the Nation and Call It 'Infrastructure' - Nate Jackson (4/3/2021)
The nation is quickly approaching $30 trillion in debt. The government has spent $10 trillion over the last 18 months, including $2 trillion less than a month ago. So what's the Democrat plan? Spending another $2 trillion on "infrastructure."

The American Civil War Is Over Judeo-Christian Values - Dennis Prager (4/2/2021)
Conservatives often speak of Judeo-Christian values and how the current civil war in the United States and the rest of the West is essentially a battle between those values and the left, which rejects Judeo-Christian values. They are right.

Joe Biden's Gun Control Plan Is Really Class Warfare - Pedro Gonzalez (4/1/2021)
There is nothing compassionate about the Democratic Party's gun control agenda. The realities of these policies mean depriving millions of Americans of the tools they use for self-defense and hunting.

America at the End of Empire - Mark Tapson (3/31/2021)
If Americans hope to restore our former glory, we must begin by ceasing to be a nation of silly people. We must be as serious as our enemies. We must reignite the fierce, uncompromising, give-me-liberty-or-give-me-death passion for independence.

Without Public Debate, Democracy Crumbles - Diane Dimond (3/30/2021)
"It sometimes feels as though our democracy is broken, and I wonder if it is our own fault. We have the right to know what our government does on our behalf, but we have become an apathetic citizenry."

Why DC Statehood Is a Constitutional No-No - Thomas Gallatin (3/29/2021)
While Democrats love to argue that the 670,000 residents of DC lack the same congressional representation enjoyed by residents of the 50 states, it's telling that they are unwilling to consider less politically contentious solutions.

Hyde Amendment, Yes. Shalanda Young, No - Star Parker (3/28/2021)
The Supreme Court may have concluded that a woman has the right to destroy the unborn child she is carrying. But that right certainly doesn't extend to the federal government forcing taxpayers to pay for it.

Senate Filibuster on the Dems' Chopping Block - Thomas Gallatin (3/27/2021)
Clearly, Democrats want to remove any roadblocks to the implementation of their radical leftist agenda, even when it means completely rejecting the standards they once touted.

Wokeifying America's Military - Ben Shapiro (3/26/2021)
Our military is designed to deter and to defend, to kill people and break things. If diversity facilitates that mission, that's wonderful. If it does not, then any time spent on it is not mission-oriented.

Why Is Mr. Biden Creating His Own Crises? - Pat Buchanan (3/25/2021)
Of the thousands of illegal immigrants entering our country daily, few are tested for COVID-19 before being moved into the American heartland, carrying the infection with them. Meanwhile, Mr. Biden focuses on restarting the Cold War.

Wording of First Amendment and Who Twisted It - William Federer (3/24/2021)
o understand the meaning of the First Amendment, it is necessary to read the debates of those who proposed and passed it.

Biden Prepares to Strip College Students of Due Process Rights - David Harsanyi (3/23/2021)
If President Joe Biden were compelled to live by the standards he intends to institute for college students accused of sexual misconduct, he would be presumed guilty of rape, denied any legitimate opportunity to refute the charges and tossed from office.

Could the U.S. Ban Guns? Australia Tried Something Pretty Close. - Peter Suciu (3/22/2021)
Not that we should ignore the problem in America, but a gun confiscation and buyback that worked in Australia is simply unlikely to work here. Of course, that hasn't stopped American politicians from pushing their agenda.

Secular Indulgences - Erick Erickson (3/21/2021)
Secularism is, in fact, a religion. It has sacraments such as support for abortion rights. It has tithing in which secular adherents give money to various political and social causes. It has liturgies in the new speak of wokeness.

Welcome to the White Privilege Presidency - Charles Hurt (3/20/2021)
Washington really is the last nakedly racist place in America. And the very face of this city's institutional racism is President Biden himself. Welcome to the White Privilege Presidency.

Dianne Feinstein's Latest 'Assault Weapon' Bill Is Just As Illogical As All the Previous Ones - Jacob Sullum (3/19/2021)
President Joe Biden, who supports a new "assault weapon" ban, nevertheless concedes that the 1994 law had no impact on the lethality of legal firearms.

Stop Trying To Create a Zero-Risk Society - Veronique de Rugy (3/18/2021)
A lot has been said about the harm to people resulting from government lockdowns imposed in the name of fighting COVID-19. However, lockdowns aren't the only misguided policies that we've had and continue to endure due to the pandemic.

Now The Woke Cancelers Are Even Coming After 'Mom' And 'Dad' - Joseph Curl (3/17/2021)
Once they took out Dumbo and Pepe Le Pew, it was only a matter of time until the language police doubled down. Now, some more silliness in the name of "inclusivity" and combatting "privilege."

The Emerging Existential Crisis at the Border - Pat Buchanan (3/16/2021)
With the culture war raging unabated, as mobs tears down statues and monuments to America's founders, exactly what national problem will be solved by an unstopping and unrelenting wave of migrants illegally crossing the border into our country?

Time to Start Talking About America's Coming Bankruptcy - Neil Patel (3/15/2021)
Did you know America is going bankrupt? Most people don't. Maybe the saddest part about our country's state of affairs is that all our vitriol and dysfunction has come at a time when we aren't even addressing our biggest problems.

Pelosi's H.R. 1 Is an Authoritarian Outrage - David Harsanyi (3/14/2021)
Democrats like to accuse anyone who doesn't embrace every one of their brand-new, rapidly evolving, Constitution-corroding positions of being "authoritarians." It's often an impressive feat of projection.

How to Ruin America - Cal Thomas (3/13/2021)
We had better decide what kind of country we want to be, or we will become a country others want us to be. That was clearly not the vision of our Founders, of the many presidents who succeeded them.

Would the Real Fascists Please Stand Up? - Nate Jackson (3/12/2021)
Who are the real fascists? The alleged "racists" who want an American melting pot and Rule of Law for everyone, or the ones pushing government takeover of everything, as well as race-based policies and an aggressive and totalitarian cancel culture?

Nancy's Election-Rigging Bill - Betsy McCaughey (3/11/2021)
Nancy Pelosi's top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1, to be voted on this week, trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican.

Orchestrated Economic Disaster? - Arnold Ahlert (3/10/2021)
If there is one thing above all else our Ruling Class learned during the pandemic, it's that frightened and desperate Americans are increasingly pliable Americans, millions of whom have been more than willing to trade Liberty for security.

Silencing Free Speech On College Campuses - Andrew P. Napolitano (3/9/2021)
Ordinarily, the owner of private property can impose whatever regulations he wishes upon those who voluntarily come upon his land. But in our era of ubiquitous government, if you invite the public, you must take whoever shows up.

Liberals Attack First Amendment...Again - David Bossie (3/8/2021)
Every two years, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the radical Democrats in the House set their sights on canceling the constitutional protections that were reasserted by the U.S. Supreme Court in the landmark Citizens United victory for free speech.

COVID-19 Relief Bill Creates Too Much Debt - Bill Beck (3/7/2021)
"This bill is a disgrace and the American taxpayers should be outraged by the waste in it. How long can we continue to print money before it comes back to haunt us?"

Democrats Manufacture Racism - Derek Hunter (3/6/2021)
If you wanted to tear apart a country, really have the people hate each other, the playbook Democrats are following would be the way to do it. Take something irrelevant, but over which people can do nothing, and build it up into everything.

House Democrats Against Free Speech - Debra Saunders (3/5/2021)
Democratic House members are using the Capitol Hill riot and the coronavirus pandemic in a scary effort to censor conservatives — and get Big Media to do their dirty work for them. Remember when the left believed in free speech? Those days are gone.

What to Cut? Plenty - Cal Thomas (3/4/2021)
President Biden has challenged those who oppose the Democrats' $1.9 trillion bill disingenuously dubbed "COVID relief," or the more deceitful "American Rescue Plan." "What would they have me cut?" he asks. Challenge accepted.

Who Is Looking Out for America? - Laura Hollis (3/3/2021)
There was — presumably — a time in the history of this country when both major political parties could honestly state that the policies they advocated for and taxpayer dollars they spent were legitimately for the benefit of America and America

It's Not a COVID Relief Bill. It's Christmas for Democrats. - David Harsanyi (3/2/2021)
Republicans should stop referring to the Democrats' newest ideological wish list as a COVID-19 "relief bill" or "rescue bill," or any of the other euphemistic misnomers used by the media.

'Party of Government': Dems Put Their Interests Before the People's - Jonah Goldberg (3/1/2021)
The Democratic Party is the party of government. The party of government, and often government itself, is dominated by a constituency that, to put it charitably, has divided loyalties between what is good for the public and what is good for them.

The Blue States Are Now the Beggar States - Stephen Moore (2/28/2021)
You'd think liberals would be ashamed, but spending other people's money is what they do best. Every liberal Democrat in Congress, from Sen. Elizabeth Warren to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, will vote for the blue-state bailout.

A Racist Plan, Not a Rescue Plan - Betsy McCaughey (2/27/2021)
Polls show most Americans support the COVID-19 relief bill. But this bill comes with a slap in the face for people who believe in racial equality and want everyone to benefit.

Racists Masquerading as Educators - Arnold Ahlert (2/26/2021)
While Americans are force-fed lectures about race, the most divisive and corrosive aspect of American society — as in an elitist class intent on imposing a de facto oligarchy on a constitutional republic — remains purposefully obscured.

Republicans Must Unify Against the Left - Star Parker (2/25/2021)
Republicans must unify to continue working to restore American greatness and keep focus on the real enemy: A corrupt, deeply confused and dangerous left-wing regime now holds the reins of power in our nation.

Our Descent Into Collective Madness - Victor Davis Hanson (2/24/2021)
The common denominator with all of our current absurdities? An ungracious and neurotic elite whose judgment is bankrupt and whose privilege is paid for by those who don't have it.

Where's the Beef? - Cal Thomas (2/23/2021)
What is it about people who are successful in one field and believe that gives them credence to serve as an expert in a totally unrelated field?

The 1776 Commission and American Education - Larry Arnn (2/22/2021)
One of the clearest signs that we are in a debate over the central meaning of our country, and therefore of our rights and of us, is the controversy about the status of the American founding. That controversy rages.

The Democratic Party Is Radicalizing Against the Constitution - David Harsanyi (2/21/2021)
There is nothing preventing California from passing whatever laws it wishes at the state level. There are provisions making it hard for California to pass whatever laws it wishes in West Virginia. That's not a bug; it's the point.

The American Animal Farm - Douglas Andrews (2/20/2021)
Eric Blair warned us, but we didn't listen. And today, we're seeing his nightmarish allegory played out before our eyes. Blair -- George Orwell -- and his Animal Farm, which was published in 1945, has never seemed more relevant.

'Are the Classics Racist?' - Rich Lowry (2/19/2021)
It was only a matter of time before Cicero got canceled. Idiots. To look at the marvels of Greece and Rome and see only 'whiteness' speaks to an obsession with race that is destructive and self-defeating.

The World Goes on While America Sleeps - Victor Davis Hanson (2/18/2021)
Something frightening is now occurring in the United States. While we are busy devouring each other, China is smiling because once-feared American capitalists have become laughable Keystone Cops.

The Coming Abortion Wars - Andrew P. Napolitano (2/17/2021)
Coming our way is a massive effort by pro-abortion forces at the state and federal levels to shore up Roe — to insulate it from interference by the Supreme Court — and thereby make abortions more available and, often, performed at taxpayer exp

Socialism Never Works - John Stossel (2/16/2021)
Socialism appeals to people today because it promises "equality and social justice," but look at its track record. In Russia, Cuba, North Korea, Nicaragua, Vietnam and China, socialism has meant a loss of freedom.

The Worst Budget in American History - Stephen Moore (2/15/2021)
Is there even one half-sane Democrat that will stand up and denounce the fiscal atrocity of President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion spending bill? Is there not one single patriotic Democrat in the entire country who will speak out?
