MICHELLE MALKIN Attorney General Eric Holder's people have no shame.

JOSEPH FARAH As usual, Justice Antonin Scalia is exactly right about the Supreme Court muddled decision over Arizona's power to police its own territory and enforce existing laws on immigration. In his dissent on a ruling that strictly limits what states can to do protect their own citizens and enforce its own laws, Scalia wrote that the decision "deprives States of what most would consider the defining characteristic of sovereignty: the power to exclude from the sovereign's territory people who have no right to be there...

Is this a result of the mainstream media? Perhaps, though another possibility might be considered... (more)

PHILIP KLEIN Four years ago, with Democrats poised to win the presidency and make major gains in Congress, liberals were salivating at what looked like the best opportunity to advance their agenda since President Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society. In March 2008, activists gathered in Washington, D.C., for a conference put on by the group Campaign for America's Future and enthusiastically laid out liberal policies on issues such as health care and "green" energy. Four years later, much has changed... (more)
