A Warning To The State Of Pennsylvania

Michael Reagan  Be careful, Pennsylvania people. You can’t afford to blow it this fall. Your great state is, I’m sorry to say, already not so great when it comes to fiscal solvency.

Your 2016 Republican Field, by the Odds

Albert R. Hunt  If you want to wager on who the 2016 Republican nominee will be and have only one choice, the best bet may be former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. However, the odds overwhelmingly suggest the former governor won’t win the nomination — assuming he even runs. This underscores, more than any other time […] Continue reading →

Eric Holder’s Race Card

Jonah Goldberg,   Last week, the president’s lap dog blew his dog whistle. In case you didn’t know, in politics a “dog whistle” is coded language that has a superficial meaning for everybody, but also a special resonance for certain constituencies.

Did Professor Advocate Censorship of Conservative Student Newspaper?

Todd Starnes  University of Minnesota at Morris biology professor Dr. Paul Zachary Myers doesn’t like young Republicans.

On Tax Day, the RNC Is Suing the IRS

Reince Priebus  Today’s the day Americans send their hard-earned tax dollars into the IRS. But this year, the IRS is going to receive something else: a lawsuit.

By 2024, The Democrats Will Be An Atheist Party

Kurt Schlichter  Democrats are waging war on the faithful and are even comfortable booing God on national TV. Give it three more presidential election cycles and the Democrat Party’s platform will be expressly antireligious.

 In Romans 13:1-7 the apostle Paul writes: “[A ruler] is the minister of God to thee for good” (v. 3); “Wherefore ye must needs be subject…” (v. 5); “…pay ye tribute [taxes]” (v. 6).

This Is How We Get Congress To Arrest Lois Lerner

B. Christopher Agee  Lois Lerner, one-time head of the IRS’ tax-exempt division, has become the central figure in an ongoing scandal. In an administration with no shortage of controversy, the IRS debacle has possibly been the most contentious of Obama’s presidency. There is no question that conservative groups received undue scrutiny from Lerner’s department in […] Continue reading →

Obama’s Politicized, Lawless Executive Branch

 Under the administration of President Barack Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama’s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice […] Continue reading →

Brandeis Bows to Islamic Censorship

Brent Bozell  It’s graduation time. Many college students are preparing for their commencement ceremonies. On some campuses, some students are playing a game of what we might call “Dump the Speaker.” Conservative speakers chosen to deliver commencement addresses are being howled off campus by leftist student organizations and faculty as well.
