SEN. RAND PAUL Since its creation in 1970, the Environmental Protection Agency has done more harm than good. EPA regulations cost more than 5 percent of our annual gross domestic product - the equivalent of the costs of defense and homeland security combined... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Thanks to the rule of law, Americans are not subject to the capricious rule of men. Instead, the laws apply equally to the high and the low alike. To achieve this end, the Founders separated powers and responsibilities within government, giving Congress the authority to make the laws and charging the president with the constitutionally imposed duty to "take care that the Laws be faithfully executed"...

NEWSMAX Will Hillary Clinton challenge Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination? She says no, that she never wants to run for office again.

CHUCK NORRIS Loyal readers know that I have been calling attention to a range of Second Amendment issues in the past week. In last week's column here, I wrote about the scandals and illegitimate regulations emanating from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives. In another outlet, I documented the threat to our rights that is posed by the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES President Obama coasted into the White House thanks in part to the youth vote, individuals aged 18-29 who bought into his vague promise to bring change. During Mr. Obama's term in office, however, many of this group - known as Millennials - have been forced to learn how to subsist on pocket change... (more)

CNN A new national survey is further proof that Texas Gov. Rick Perry's entrance earlier this month into the race for the White House has dramatically altered the battle for the Republican presidential nomination. According to a CNN/ORC International Poll of Republicans and independent voters who lean towards the GOP, Perry now sits atop the list of Republican presidential candidates, with strong support from most demographic groups...

LARRY KLAYMAN I spent this week in Israel with Glenn Beck. Glenn, who left Fox News a few months ago, organized an event he called "Restoring Courage," and courageous it was. Months before his event, I had floated a similar idea that I had been promoting -- a "Hollywood Tribute to Israel" -- not only with him but a number of influential people, because, as I have written before, not only is the Holy Land "holy," the root of Judeo-Christian civilization, but its future is so tied to your own during these trying times...

WASHINGTON TIMES Democrats will do anything to pander for Hispanic votes in 2012. They're even in favor of amnesty and cash handouts to illegal aliens, if that's what it takes. The latest scheme from California liberals is a move to force over-burdened taxpayers to foot the bill to put illegals through college... (more)

DAVID LIMBAUGH President Barack Obama often tells us that his No. 1 focus is creating jobs, but his record makes you wonder what he might have done differently if his goal were to destroy jobs. Those who've examined Congressional Budget Office (CBO) data have calculated that each job allegedly created by Obama's stimulus -- and this is if you accept the fantastically generous guesstimates -- cost between $225,000 and $600,000...

HERMAN CAIN Imagine living in a neighborhood where most of your neighbors wish you would move away. Since you have a right to be there and it happens to be the home of many generations of your family, you refuse to be intimidated into leaving, even though you are violently attacked frequently and sometimes family members are killed. Although painfully saddened, your resolve to remain there is not weakened... (more)

RICH LOWRY The great divorce revolution of the 1960s and 1970s has faded. The great cohabitation revolution has begun. The divorce rate for married couples with children is almost back to the levels of the early 1960s, before the run-up that crested in the early 1980s. Considering the decades of social turbulence buffeting the institution of marriage between then and now, this is a notable restoration... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Before Hurricane Irene made landfall, environmental extremists were spouting off three certainties about the storm: It is catastrophic; it was caused by global warming; and it is all President Obama's fault. On Thursday, climate alarmist Bill McKibben wrote, "Irene's got a middle name, and it's Global Warming"... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Beware, the PLA is coming. On Wednesday, the Pentagon released its annual report on Chinese military operations. It is full of mealy-mouthed wording to try to put the best possible spin on the rapid rise of the People's Republic, but one scary conclusion is unavoidable: China is becoming an increasingly serious threat to U.S. national security...
