The Great National Divorce? - Brian Mark Weber (10/12/2021)
A lasting relationship takes two. Both parties need to be willing to compromise. Each side also needs to have a set of core values and beliefs tying them together through the tough times.

Why We Don't Need 'Human Infrastructure' - James Whitford (10/11/2021)
Contrary to the pitch made by Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, President Joe Biden, and its other promoters, if passed into law this massive spending boondoggle will be both wasteful and harmful.

The Bathroom Harassment of Sen. Sinema was Funded by Leftist Billionaires - Daniel Greenfield (10/10/2021)
When leftist activists followed Sen. Kyrsten Sinema into a bathroom filming themselves harassing the moderate Democrat, they falsely claimed they were her "constituents". Actually, they were George Soros' constituents.

The Virus of Biden's Authoritarianism - Nate Jackson (10/9/2021)
"I promise you if I'm elected, I won't waste any time getting this virus under control ... I'll bring together top experts and leaders from both parties to chart a path forward. We'll get it done, together." —Joe Biden, August 11, 20

Stamp out the U.S. Postal Service - Cal Thomas (10/8/2021)
If only we could resurrect the original postmaster, Benjamin Franklin, who created a system that was affordable and fast for his day. Franklin would likely be appalled at what we have today.

Fossil Fuels Are Back — Everywhere Except in the USA - Stephen Moore (10/7/2021)
While the greens in America, including their champion zealot, President Joe Biden, howl their primal screams over climate change, the rest of the world is turning to coal. The dark stuff. The satanic fuel. But it's back big-time across the globe.

The New Secession Movement - Steven Malanga (10/6/2021)
A new poll from the University of Virginia's Center for Politics finds that large portions of the American public now favor blue and red states going their own ways to form separate countries.

Mr. Biden DOJ Goes to War Against Parents - Thomas Gallatin (10/5/2021)
The Biden administration has decided to go after parents who publicly object to what their children are being taught in public schools. We have noted over the past year how parents across the country have risen up to challenge their local school boards.

America Is Racing to Darkness - Cheryl Chumley (10/4/2021)
America is in peril. You know it, we know it, we all either see these perilous times for what they are or we instinctively feel them — we instinctively feel that something is wrong, but can't quite put a finger on it, can't quite put a name

What Kind of Person Are You, Really? - Laura Hollis (10/3/2021)
The United States is not just dealing with mutations of COVID-19. Our culture has been infected with mutated strains of collectivism and corporate authoritarianism, already engaged in censorship and moving swiftly toward perpetual surveillance.

Orwell and the Woke - Victor Davis Hanson (10/2/2021)
Orwell would say of the woke Obamas, Nancy Pelosi, AOC, Bernie Sanders, LeBron James, or Ibram Kendi – and their supposedly unwoke, but similarly rich and privileged enemies – "It was impossible to say which was which."

Stop "Civil Rights" Abuse - Max Eden (10/1/2021)
States must block the federal government from countermanding localities with fake constitutional protections.

Destroying America - Cal Thomas (9/30/2021)
If we don't find the national political leadership to do something about our steady decline and defend ourselves, as in warfare (because war is what it is, though it is being fought with different weapons), we are at risk of oblivion.

"A New Constellation in the Firmament" - Ronny Just (9/29/2021)
Humans assembled to make laws for thousands of years before the American Constitution was created in 1787, yet its revolutionary and transcendent influence on human history is difficult to comprehend this side of its formation.

More Radical Than Roe - Melanie Israel (9/28/2021)
If enacted, the Women's Health Protection Act would endanger essentially all state-level abortion restrictions, existing state and federal conscience protection laws, and various provisions limiting taxpayer funding for abortions.

Why Biden's Vaccine Mandate Fails the Constitutional Test - John Yoo & Robert J. Delahunty (9/27/2021)
In the name of an 'emergency,' the administration is invoking a 50-year-old statute of doubtful relevance to justify a sweeping and unprecedented mandate over the private sector.

Civilization Requires Deterrence - Victor Davis Hanson (9/26/2021)
Deterrence is the ancient ability to scare somebody off from hurting you, your friends or your interests -- without a major war. Desire peace? Then be prepared for war.

Biden's Stance Will Feed Pandemic Culture War - Jonah Goldberg (9/25/2021)
It's a strange thought, given how badly he botched the U.S. withdrawal. But at least Afghanistan Joe had a clear idea about what we needed to do. COVID Joe has no such exit strategy. He's making it up as he goes.

As America Has Become More Secular, It Has Become Less Free - Dennis Prager (9/24/2021)
To deny it, one would have to argue that it is merely coincidental that free speech, the greatest of all freedoms, is more seriously threatened than at any time in American history while a smaller-than-ever percentage of Americans believe in God.

Biden Knew the Border Crisis Was Coming - Tucker Carlson (9/23/2021)
Waiting under the bridge in Del Rio tonight is the Democratic Party's future electoral majority. That's what it really is, and that's why they're protected. So they can do whatiever they want.

The Clock is Ticking on Ways to Fix the U.S. Election System - Diane Dimond (9/22/2021)
"Flagrant" election fraud has been "documented throughout this nation's history," according to the U.S. Supreme Court. And so it goes today. Voter fraud never went away; it just got more sophisticated.

Our Elective Monarchy - Ben Shapiro (9/21/2021)
We may want change, and we may want to carve a path through the checks and balances that obstruct that change by granting near-total power to an elective monarch. But unity won't follow. Chaos will.

Gray Lives Matter - Ann Coulter (9/20/2021)
After other people's ancestors carved a nation out of the wilderness, today's protesters just kind of showed up. Now they go around obliterating anything that reminds them that this country was up and running long before they got here.

President Biden's First Job Under the Constitution: Keep Us Free! - Andrew P. Napolitano (9/19/2021)
It was scandalous and infuriating to hear President Joseph R. Biden argue last week that his so-called vaccine mandates somehow have nothing to do with freedom or personal choice.

Spending Gluttony Is Washington's Deadly Sin - Veronique de Rugy (9/18/2021)
Democrats are ready to raise taxes. They want more revenue, in part to fund an out-of-this-world amount of new spending. Some simply want to soak the rich, as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., plainly signaled at the Met Gala.

Americans Should Be Working Hard, Not Hardly Working - Stephen Moore (9/17/2021)
The Labor Department reported this week that there are now a record 10.9 million jobs open in America. That's twice the size of the entire Ohio workforce. Yet the department also has counted some 8 million unemployed Americans.

Accepting Pelosi's Challenge - Cal Thomas (9/16/2021)
Responding to Democrats in her party who are troubled by the massive $3.5 trillion spending bill that would forever transform America into a debtor nation, Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked a question: "Where would you cut?" Aha!

Why Freedom Is in Serious Jeopardy - Dennis Prager (9/15/2021)
There are many ways in which to divide humanity — the decent and the indecent, the happy and the unhappy, the cowardly and the courageous, those who lead and those who follow, etc. Two major divisions that are less often noted but highly consequenti

Is Democracy Versus Autocracy the New Cold War? - Pat Buchanan (9/14/2021)
He may be an SOB, but he's our SOB." So said President Franklin D. Roosevelt of Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza, and how very American. For, from its first days, America has colluded with autocrats when the national interest demanded it.

Authoritarianism Pandemic is the Real Threat - Ron Paul (9/13/2021)
If government can force people to take a potentially dangerous vaccine to protect against a hypothetical harm to others, the same reasoning would support the imposing of many additional liberty violations. The proverbial foot in the door.

There's Nothing The U.S. Can Do To Affect Global Temperature - Issues & Insights (9/12/2021)
Despite zero evidence that human greenhouse gas emissions are harming Earth, the Democrats, cheered by the media, continue to enact energy policies they say are necessary for saving our world.

Texas, Abortion, and the Constitution - Andrew P. Napolitano (9/11/2021)
Nullification posits that any state individually — through its legislature or highest court — can determine that an action of the federal government is unconstitutional under the U.S. Constitution, is nullified and may legally be ignored in th

There's a Problem in the Upper Reaches of Our Military - Victor Davis Hanson (9/10/2021)
Our new woke Pentagon is hell-bent on losing America's trust – and wars. Something is terribly wrong in the ranks of America's top commanders that reflects something wrong with the country.

Mr. Biden's Unholy Crusade for Abortion - George Neumayr (9/9/2021)
Biden's frenzied response to the recent Texas law prohibiting abortion after six weeks shows the extent to which he has sold his soul to Planned Parenthood. He is acting as if the Texas law represents a national crisis.

CDC Pushes Lunatic PC Language Games Instead of Fighting COVID - Betsy McCaughey (9/8/2021)
The CDC is suffering from mission confusion. With parts of the U.S. considering more COVID lockdowns, Americans don't need PC lessons. They need scientific information on how to reduce the risk of being infected by this virus indoors.

Cacophony and Confusion in Foreign Policy - Pat Buchanan (9/7/2021)
August in Afghanistan may have shattered irredeemably the foreign policy consensus and coalition Biden could rely upon. There is now no guarantee that the country will back up its commander in chief in doing what he deems necessary for national security.

Biden Deliberately Sabotaged Afghanistan Withdrawal. Here's Why. - Luis Miguel (9/6/2021)
Treason is the intentional, willful betrayal of one's own country by either waging war against it or materially aiding its enemies. And materially aiding America's enemies is precisely what the government is guilty of.

America's Slow Suicide - Ben Shapiro (9/5/2021)
A nation that understands itself — that understands its purpose in the world — flourishes. Such nations, historically, have not shied away from their part on the stage of history.

The United Federal Administrative Units of America? - Veronique de Rugy (9/4/2021)
With the federal government accounting for roughly a third of total state spending prior to the pandemic, it's fair to wonder what the future holds for the relationship between the federal government and the states.

Conservative Principles Demand We Restrain Government - Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD) (9/3/2021)
COVID has tested how far politicians will go to use heavy-handed tactics to get their way. On everything from mandates to spending, the left wants more government. Conservatives must stand on principle and oppose big government in all its forms.

Endless Wars = Endless Refugees - Michelle Malkin (9/2/2021)
How do we prevent the refugee resettlement racket from pressuring American politicians to keep importing endless numbers of people from countries that hate our guts?

Bad Moon Rising for Biden – and Us - Pat Buchanan (9/1/2021)
Our media are as partisan as they have been in our lifetimes. Our cultural elites endlessly mock the traditional values and beliefs of Middle America. Our national parties appear ever at sword's point. Can we remain as one people, one nation?

Biden's Impeachable Offense - The Washington Times (8/31/2021)
Given the catastrophic way the Biden administration has handled our withdrawal from Afghanistan, not to mention the crisis at our Southern border, the American public should have no confidence in their ability to conduct a thorough vetting process.

Welcome to the Forever Pandemic - Ben Shapiro (8/30/2021)
The government has now done all it can to provide protection to those who want it; those who demand government restrictions have provided no metric for success by which proposed restrictions end and we all go back to normal life.

The CDC Should Stay in Its Own Lane - Debra Saunders (8/29/2021)
The federal government outrageously has shifted the burden to landlords without compensating them. While supporters maintain that renters still will be liable for skipped rent, they're not fooling anyone.

Does America Still Work? - Victor Davis Hanson (8/28/2021)
For nearly two years, Americans have engaged in a great woke experiment of cannibalizing themselves. American civilization has invested massive labor, capital and time in an effort to constantly flagellate itself for not being perfect.

Elitist Democrats Want You to Shut Up and Obey - Tucker Carlson (8/27/2021)
Has there ever been a clearer window into the society they're trying to build? Our formerly middle-class nation now has a serf class. They're the ones wearing the masks, being forced to take drugs they don't want.

Keeping Fear Alive - John Tierney (8/26/2021)
Throughout the pandemic, our leaders have been following Rahm Emanuel's classic dictum for power-seeking officials: "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste." Now they've adopted a corollary: you never want a crisis to end.

15 Million Reasons to Ban Mail-In Voting - Douglas Andrews (8/25/2021)
Last year, we allowed Democrats to make massive changes to the way we decide our elections, and to thereby perpetrate a fraud on the nation. We allowed them to institute a chaotic and largely unregulated bulk-mail balloting scheme across that land.

The Census Is Too Nosy - Jeff Jacoby (8/24/2021)
The Census Bureau will release local demographic data from the 2020 enumeration this week, to be used in redrawing voting districts. But the information comes with a puzzle: Why did so many Americans leave questions unanswered?
