Michelle Malkin, Se acabo el tiempo. Seventeen years after granting “temporary protected status” to nearly 200,000 Salvadoran citizens who had fled earthquakes in 2001 or who were already here illegally and claimed they were unable to return to their homeland because of civil strife, America is setting a deadline: Get right with the law or
Joseph Bast, Shouldn’t we try to find ways to solve problems peacefully and voluntarily before we resort to force? Is it really okay to use force to achieve trivial objectives? Jim Payne is a long-time Heartland policy advisor, author, donor, and friend. He’s written a really nice commentary on the true definition of “government” and
Lloyd Billingsley, Establishment media ignore the real sources of the Russia investigation. George Papadopoulos was the “improbable match that set off a blaze that has consumed the first year of the Trump administration.” Like the Trump campaign itself, advisor Papadopoulos “proved to be a tantalizing target for a Russian influence operation.” Thus opens a 2500-plus-word
Congressman Mike Coffman, Each generation has their defining inventions. Over the last 20 years, the Internet easily qualifies as this country’s most valuable and stunning success story. But, like most inventions, the Internet has grown far beyond what the early pioneers could have ever imagined it becoming— a limitless tool for business, communications, education, entertainment,
Joseph Klein, FCC set to reverse innovation-killing “net neutrality” order. Market forces have kept the Internet open and innovative since it was first commercialized years ago, without the need for intrusive government regulation. Yet, during the Obama administration, the liberal majority of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decided to inflict the heavy hand of government
Bill Murchison, The insider whispering can commence — has commenced, in fact. Indictments have that effect on the media and its Second Shoe Department. What’s likely to drop next, and where, now that Paul Manafort has drawn the baleful gaze of the special prosecutor for Russian-American connections? And, most of all, what does it mean
Rebecca Hagelin, If ever there was an officer and a gentleman, it is retired Marine Gen. John Kelly. Last week, the White House chief of staff directly addressed the offensive politicization of President Trump’s personal phone call to the grieving widow of a courageous Green Beret who gave his life in a distant land. While
Walter E. Williams, The largest threat to our prosperity is government spending that far exceeds the authority enumerated in Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. Federal spending in 2017 will top $4 trillion. Social Security, at $1 trillion, will take up most of it. Medicare ($582 billion) and Medicaid ($404 billion) are the
Cal Thomas, “Sound practical judgment that is independent of specialized knowledge, training, or the like; normal native intelligence.” — Dictionary.com’s definition of common sense. Sometimes what used to be called “common sense” can seem radical in Washington, which is used to practicing senseless policies and funding programs that don’t work. Immigration is a perfect example.
Steve Sherman, There’s always a lot of talk about the benefits of reaching across the aisle. In Washington, it seems like cooperation between the two pillars of political power rarely happens. That makes it all the more disheartening when the Democrats and Republicans reach bipartisan agreement, but in a way that suffocates the American people.
Cal Thomas, Anyone looking for another reason not to leave life-and-death issues to the state need look no further than the conflict between the British government and the parents of 11-month-old Charlie Gard. Governments, including the British courts and the European court of human rights have refused to allow Charlie’s parents to take him to
Brian Darling, A true test for liberty minded politicians is facing them this Congress. The idea of federalism as it applies to medical marijuana laws in the states. The self-proclaimed champions of federalism will have their commitment to the idea tested when they are called on to vote on a measure protecting federalism as part
