Maxine Waters, The Mini Warlord of the Left - Bob Barr (4/25/2021)
The fact that Waters receives no punishment for exhorting people to confront police and "take to the streets," highlights the grotesque double standard practiced by Democrats at the national level.

Who Will Be the Next 'America First' President? - Pat Buchanan (4/24/2021)
How do all our war guarantees to other nations secure our vital interests, when our first vital interest is to stay out of any great war? Why surrender our freedom to decide whether to fight?

A Tale of Two Shootings - Jeff Crouere (4/23/2021)
While the FBI has vigorously pursued those involved in the breach of security of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, there has been little enthusiasm to prosecute left-wing agitators causing untold destruction nationwide. American justice is no longer blind.

The Crisis of American Civilization - Newt Gingrich (4/22/2021)
We are now in a crisis of American civilization fully as dangerous and real as the crisis of the US Civil War or World War II. During both those crises, if America had lost, it would have ceased to be America.

The Coming Backlash - Kurt Schlichter (4/21/2021)
This will be a tough fight, and it is only the beginning. Do not withdraw – they prefer you submit but they will settle for you giving up (for now – they'll come for you eventually). Do not fear them. Be part of the backlash.

Just Because It's Said by Joe Doesn't Make It So - Veronique de Rugy (4/20/2021)
Unfortunately, legislators' well-documented tendency to make decisions based on politics often leads them to favor projects that are outdated, expensive and never profitable at the expense of private and profitable alternatives.

Biden's California Dream - John Stossel (4/19/2021)
A good thing about America having 50 states is that when states fail, we can learn from their mistakes. People defeated by California's rules move to Nevada or Texas. But what happens when the Feds adopt those same failed policies?

Democrats' Quest for Complete Control - Laura Hollis (4/18/2021)
When all methods of peaceful participation in the political processes are foreclosed, what is left to the voiceless and the powerless? If past is precedent -- and it is -- the options remaining are violence and revolution, secession and war.

Lost Liberties - Cal Thomas (4/17/2021)
If one can say the pandemic has had any positive side effect, it has been to help us focus on what the loss of liberties looks like. Such losses do not occur immediately but erode over time as people become increasingly comfortable with government.

Biden Spending Spree Costs Two Iraq Wars in Three Months - Charles Hurt (4/16/2021)
The last time Joe Biden was allowed near the White House, he tacked more than $8 trillion to the national debt — mostly for all those "shovel-ready" projects that were not ready. Instead of "shovel-ready."

Wealthy and Woke - Victor Davis Hanson (4/15/2021)
Wokeness is not really about fairness for minorities or the oppressed. It is mostly a self-confessional cult of anointed bullies, and hypocrites of all races and genders, who seek to flex, and increase, their own privilege and power. Period.

United by Division? - Nate Jackson (4/14/2021)
Don't miss the irony that an airline called "United" is now going to start dividing by race when it comes to hiring pilots. Apparently, this "woke" HR department run amok is what taxpayers get for last year's $5 billion federal bailout.

Biden's $2.3 Trillion Infrastructure Plan Is Teeming With Cronyism - Veronique de Rugy (4/13/2021)
"A crony anti-infrastructure plan" is, sadly, the best description of the Biden's proposed $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan. It's insanely expensive and unnecessary, especially coming, as it does, on top of last year's fiscal insanity.

United's 'Fly the Woke Skies' Nosedive - Larry O'Connor (4/12/2021)
Whoever advised United executives to come out with this statement should probably be fired. Unless, of course, they got their job due to some diversity quota... in that case, hell of a job, pal.

Violence in America, Don't Be Surprised - Dr. Glenn Mollette (4/11/2021)
The fence around the Capitol will become a monument to the future of our nation. Many third world houses in Brazil, South Africa and many places in Mexico are surrounded by walls or fences. We are heading in the same direction.

As Our World Churns, What Do We Believe? - Raymond E. Neil (4/10/2021)
We are rapidly losing our freedoms to attend church, travel -- and exercise free speech. All speech by those who disagree with Fauci and the government is stricken from media platforms and criticized by those who have drunk the government Kool Aid.

States Fight Back Against Biden War on the West - Stephen Moore (4/9/2021)
The states are to serve as "laboratories of democracy." Our Founding Fathers' ingeniousness was recognizing that healthy competition among the states was the best way to devise policy solutions. This brings us to President Joe Biden.

The Voter-Suppression Lie - Rich Lowry (4/8/2021)
It's not 'Jim Crow' to require ID, to expand weekend voting, or to provide food and drink for the general public near polling places.

4 Reasons Gun Control Can't Solve America's Violence Problem - Mark Houser (4/7/2021)
The gun-control paradigm is unhelpful. Gun control doesn't work. Indeed, any statistical connection between gun policy and violence is tenuous. But even if gun control was effective, it would still be flawed.

Why The American Education System Is Systematically Producing Failures - Candace Owens (4/6/2021)
The American education system is producing adults with more degrees that are infinitely dumber — and that's not just an opinion. In recent years, students are graduating at higher rates, yet they are scoring lower and lower on standardized tests

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?"
