WASHINGTON TIMES — The California state Senate voted 28-8 Wednesday to exempt itself from the pointless gun-control laws that apply to the rest of the populace. Legislators apparently think they alone are worthy to pack heat on the streets for personal protection, and the masses ought to wait until the police arrive... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST — Not too long ago, a congressional staffer made the argument in a private meeting that in America as a democracy, the majority must always rule no matter what. If 51 percent of the people want Shariah (Islamic) law in this country, he argued, then we should have Shariah law nationwide... (more)

SCOTT HYLAND — As I sit on my back porch and enjoy the cool breeze on this humid Sunday morning, I am reminded of the great sacrifices made by the men and women of the 1944 invasion of Normandy. Today, the air that we breathe is free, but we must never forget the great price that was paid for the current liberties we enjoy. Our freedom was not purchased with the currency of gold or silver, but with the most precious commodity known to man -- human life... (more)

RAMESH PONNURU — If President Obama had failed to get his massive health-care overhaul through Congress, Mitt Romney would today be a strong frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination.

ASSOCIATED PRESS — Israel's prime minister says attempts by pro-Palestinian protesters to breach the Israeli frontier show that Israel's very existence is at the center of the Mideast conflict.

MARK KRIKORIAN — Imagine a court system in which defendants routinely fail to show up and suffer no consequences. Where orders issued by the courts are routinely ignored. Where deceptive statistics are reported to Congress. You'd call that a crisis, wouldn't you? But it's just another day in the life of America's immigration courts... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — Crossing party lines to deliver a stunning rebuke to the commander in chief, the vast majority of the House voted Friday for resolutions telling President Obama he has broken the constitutional chain of authority by committing U.S. troops to the international military mission in Libya...

THIRD AGE — Timothy Geithner warns that if the U.S. doesn't raise the debt ceiling, it will fail to meet its financial obligations for the first time in history.

BOSTON HERALD — In the first town hall of his freshly announced presidential campaign, Mitt Romney yesterday reaffirmed his view that global warming is occurring and that humans are contributing to it, a position that has been rejected in recent years by many Republicans as the issue has taken on a greater partisan tinge...

LONDON DAILY MAIL — Was Osama bin Laden shot with a bullet soaked in pork fat, denying him a place in paradise? Yes, if one rather shady website, that peddles gun oil containing liquefied pig fat, is to be believed... (more)

JIM SEDLAK — Several states have either passed or are near passing new laws that would effectively bar Planned Parenthood from receiving government money, including Medicaid reimbursements. The Obama administration has come to Planned Parenthood's rescue. In the first of these instances, the administration has sent a letter to Indiana that says it is basically illegal to cut off Planned Parenthood Medicaid funding... (more)

RAMESH PONNURU & RICH LOWRY — In the least surprising political news of the season, Mitt Romney is announcing his candidacy for president. This is essentially a formality since he never stopped running after 2008. He comes into the race with what has traditionally been the enormous advantage in Republican politics of having run at least once before... (more)


June 3, 2011
WORLDNETDAILY — The author of the best-selling "Where's the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible To Be President" charged today the resignation of White House counsel Bob Bauer is the result of his participation in the release of Barack Obama's "Certificate of Live Birth," which he fears would not stand up to the scrutiny of any serious investigation by the FBI, Congress or the media...

June 2, 2011
WASHINGTON TIMES — The White House defense of Obamacare hinges on the claim that Congress essentially has unlimited power to force Americans to spend their personal money on a cause of the government's choosing.

MONTE KULIGOWSKI — After years of fighting its release, on April 27, 2011, President Obama finally released a detailed birth certificate. Well, actually he posted another PDF image online. If the press corps were not paralyzed by fear, a request to inspect the original document would be as natural as a clerk asking for picture ID before accepting a credit card... (more)

THE HILL — Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) says he is considering running for president after frustrated conservative activists have pleaded with him to run.

WASHINGTON TIMES — I have been in Washington now for nearly 40 years and in all that time, I can't recall seeing anything quite like Robert M. Gates' ongoing farewell to arms. In a series of speeches over the past few days - at Notre Dame, at the American Enterprise Institute and at the U.S. Naval Academy - the outgoing secretary of defense has sounded a series of warnings that the ship of state, or at least the carrier battle group that protects it, is headed for the rocks...
