ANDREW C. MCCARTHY The Left frequently misreads the public temperament, projecting its attitudes on everyone else. That is the story of the Halbig ruling and the media reaction to it. Like a number of commentators, I observed (in Faithless Execution) that the president was violating the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) by imposing the Obamacare regime of subsidies and taxes on states that declined to establish health care exchanges...

JOSEPH FARAH Relax. Keep your eyes on my timepiece. You are getting sleepy. Clear your mind and repeat after me, "Impeachment is a distraction. Impeachment is a distraction. Impeachment is a distraction." It's like a mantra or the soothing words of the hypnotist. Maybe it's a word association game being played by Republicans -- "impeachment" equals "distraction."...

PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY The shocking announcement that Microsoft is cutting 18,000 jobs is still sinking in. Most of those employees do not have a realistic chance of obtaining as good a job as the one they are losing. In the United States, the number of engineering jobs has been sharply declining. In 2002, the number of electrical engineering jobs in the United States was 385,000, but despite increased demand for technology, the job total dropped to only 300,000 last year... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID Knowing that evidence would implicate Russia in the shoot-down of the Malaysian Airlines MH17 plane, the Russian disinformation apparatus went into action early in the crisis, putting out the story that the plane was travelling almost the same route that Russia's President Vladimir Putin's jet had travelled before. In short, the accusation was that Ukraine downed the plane thinking Putin was on it. Hence, it was an assassination attempt... (more)

NEWSMAX Under President Barack Obama, the U.S. debt stands at $18 trillion and will likely triple within another five to seven years, but both president and Congress are answering that trend with more spending, says former lawmaker Judd Gregg... (more)

CINDY SIMPSON Last February, I asked: Where is the red line of impeachment? In theory, a red line might be located somewhere on a list of impeachable offenses -- perhaps at the point where a certain number of transgressions is exceeded, or next to a specific instance because of its significance or impact...

WASHINGTON TIMES Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin urged the grassroots Saturday to support her call for the impeachment of President Obama, imploring conservatives to push the idea with Congress.

Sarah Palin said Saturday at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado... (more)

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY It is a grave error to view the swarming of illegal aliens across our southern border as anything other than a challenge to our sovereignty -- a challenge abetted, rather than repulsed, by a president who vows to "fundamentally transform the United States of America." The challenge brings into sharp relief a question I've repeatedly pressed (see, e.g., here, here, here, and here): If the states cannot or will not defend themselves, are they still, in any real sense, sovereign?...

Democrats bitterly oppose the change.... (more)
