Inflation Hurts You More Than It Hurts Biden, So He Doesn't Care - Tucker Carlson (11/16/2021)
There's no greater divide in American life than the gap between people who care about what gas costs and the people who don't care. It's a cultural divide, obviously a chasm of class economics and geography.

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do - Chuck DeVore (11/15/2021)
According to a September survey by the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, they're not alone, with 52 percent of Trump voters and 41 percent of Biden voters agreeing to some extent that America should split up.

America's Moral Depravity - Armstrong Williams (11/14/2021)
The terrible events in Texas are just the tip of the iceberg of a disturbing trend in this country, and in many ways, the Western world at large. The obsession with brands, labels and celebrities has crossed the line from mere fandom to idol worship.

Parents Go After Union Stranglehold on School Boards - Betsy McCaughey (11/13/2021)
Parents are going after the union stranglehold on school boards. Last week's elections were just the beginning. Many school districts will elect board members sometime in the spring.

Why Won't the Federal Reserve Admit Inflation Is a Real Problem? - Desmond Lachman (11/12/2021)

7 Reasons to Say Goodbye to Teachers Unions - Daniel Buck (11/11/2021)
Unions block the reforms that will structurally change a broken system and in return, promise increased funding, which will, in turn, be drained away by the broken system.

Prevent the Biden Administration from Paying Illegal Aliens with Taxpayer Funds - Hans von Spakovsky (11/10/2021)
It is within Congress' power to act immediately to prevent this assault on the U.S. legal system and American taxpayers. They should certainly make quick use of it.

The Inflation Ttax Is Not Only Real, It's Massive - Paul H. Kupiec (11/9/2021)
If you are under the impression that the "inflation tax" is only an allusion to the shrinking impact inflation has on the purchasing power of your income and savings, you should continue reading.

Climate Change Is Not an 'Existential Threat' - Marc A. Thiessen (11/8/2021)
The way to address climate change is to unleash the free market to increase prosperity and innovation. But climate alarmists are using false claims of doom to scare people into adopting policies that will have the opposite effect.

The Liar Who Said 'I Will Always Level With You' - Matthew Continetti (11/7/2021)
Border crises that don't exist, "temporary" inflation, failures that are actually triumphs, and spending that is really free—there's a great word to describe these transparently false claims, one Biden knows well. It's malarkey.

Virginia Secedes From Biden's Party - Pat Buchanan (11/6/2021)
A vote for Biden was a mandate to replace Trump, not to overturn Trump's signature policies of no more wars, secure the border, cut taxes, rebuild the manufacturing base, reduce trade deficits and unleash the power of the U.S. free market system.

Republicans Must Not Get Cocky - Cheryl Chumley (11/5/2021)
The American people want real fighters, not yapping naysayers. America's conservatives want defenders of principles; patriots for freedom; warriors for constitutional causes — not mouthpieces for party elites.

Trick Spending Bills Are Voodoo Economics II - Cal Thomas (11/4/2021)
The annual "trick-or-treat" ritual is over. Not so the "tricks" perpetuated by congressional Democrats about their tax-and-spend ritual, and their phony numbers.

Is Stealing Wrong? Not on the Left - Dennis Prager (11/3/2021)
As incredible as this assertion is to just about all religious people and virtually all conservatives, most leftists do not believe stealing is wrong.

Biden & Co. Aren't Serious About Fighting Climate Change - Jonah Goldberg (11/2/2021)
There's something weird about politicians who scoff at cost concerns to fight climate change and then raise the cost of building nuclear plants as prohibitive, when they can provide carbon-free electricity on a massive and reliable scale.

Marxing to an Ugly Drummer - Robert Knight (11/1/2021)
There is a gigantic gap in worldview about government's proper reach. Most Americans think we should keep the lion's share of our earnings, even with Social Security and Medicare taking their chunk, since we earned it.

Lessons from Venezuela - John Stossel (10/31/2021)
The idea that massive government spending and other progressive feel-good policies will help America, when these same ideas failed horribly elsewhere, is a dangerous myth.

COVID-19 Vaccine Comedy of Errors - Cheryl Chumley (10/30/2021)
One shot, two shots, three shots, four. Please, please, Dr. Fauci, may I have some more. Wait a month, wait a week, wait for a wayward wisp of wind to blow through bureaucracies' hallowed halls. A fifth booster is no doubt already afloat.

That Dirty Green Energy - Issues and Insights (10/29/2021)
The forms of energy accepted by activists and politicians as "renewable" or "green" are restricted to wind and solar. While both are renewable (and are intermittent and therefore unreliable), neither is truly green.

Cash for Kids, No Work Required - Betsy McCaughey (10/28/2021)
America will fast become starkly divided between the hardworking people who foot the bills and the millions on welfare, cheering on politicians to increase the dole. The burden on working people will become intolerable.

"Free" Stuff: Popular Until the Bill Comes - Jonah Goldberg (10/27/2021)
This is where the truly dangerous ignorance begins. For years now, voters have been told that the rich as well as greedy corporations are an untapped renewable resource that can pay for everything and anything. That's false.

The Ghost of Kitty Genovese - Tom Hogan (10/26/2021)
The woman raped in Philadelphia was not killed, thank goodness, though the bystander response, if accurately characterized, was nonetheless disgraceful. What gives? Are Americans worse people today than ever before?

America Has Once Again Become Segregated - Tucker Carlson (10/25/2021)
So what are we looking at? We're not looking at a response to a health emergency. We're looking at a system of government that is changing very fast. One in which laws explicitly do not apply to the people who make the laws.

Is America Becoming Rome Versus Byzantium? - Victor Davis Hanson (10/24/2021)
Our Byzantine interior and Roman coasts are quite differently interpreting their shared American heritage as they increasingly plot radically divergent courses to survive in scary times.

Let Life Resume - John Stossel (10/23/2021)
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends staying 6 feet away from others. In Oregon, everyone must wear a mask outdoors. In parts of the country, 2-year-olds must wear masks. Are such rules necessary?

The Left Is Evil — And Liberals Keep Voting for Them - Dennis Prager (10/22/2021)
America and the West are being destroyed by the Left. But this destruction of the universities, the high schools, art and music, journalism and freedom itself could not take place were it not for liberals ... who continue to vote in socialists.

Parents Fight Leftist Segregation - Douglas Andrews (10/21/2021)
Meet the new Democrats. Same as the old Democrats. There are no nightsticks, firehoses, or police dogs on the schoolgrounds these days, but the fundamental idea is the same: segregation now, segregation forever.

Chasing Mediocrity - Betsy McCaughey (10/20/2021)
Parents whose kids excel in school need to be on guard. Leftist politicians and school administrators across the country are banning gifted programs in elementary and middle schools and advanced-placement courses in high schools.

Kill Back Better - Ann Coulter (10/19/2021)
As dead bodies pile up in Chicago, remember: This is the criminal justice "reform" Democrats want for the entire country. This isn't a Chicago story. It's a Democratic Party story.

Financial 'Stop-and-Frisk' Is Coming Soon - Erick Erickson (10/18/2021)
Members of Congress, the president and the Internal Revenue Service are increasingly concerned that you are now committing tax fraud against the federal government, and they want your banks to throw you against the wall and frisk you.

The IRS Doesn't Need More Power - National Review (10/17/2021)
The U.S. currently boasts 18 intelligence agencies, including not just the CIA and NSA but also intelligence outfits housed within agencies as far-flung as the Departments of Energy and Treasury. Now, Democrats are looking to add, in effect, a 19th.

No Court Packing Says … Biden Commission - Thomas Gallatin (10/16/2021)
"There is no guarantee that a larger Court would be drawn from a more diverse group of individuals. And a larger court may be less efficient than the current complement of justices."

"Gradually and Then Suddenly" - William A. Jacobson (10/15/2021)
What better wake up call do you need than the fact that you have to worry about your kindergartener being ideologically manipulated at school by teachers and administrators?

At the Heart of Our Divisions - Andrew Klavan (10/14/2021)
Socialism is the Left's ultimate goal and because socialism is immoral and can't be rightly argued for, the leftist shapers of culture peddle hatred and division instead.

Opinion What Kind of Country Are We, Really? - Laura Hollis (10/13/2021)
Our ruling classes are infected with arrogance, egotism and condescension. So convinced are they of their inherent superiority that their desires – whether motivated by purported altruism or blunt self-interest – are subordinated to nothing.

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.
