MICHELLE MALKIN House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is the world's worst cleaning lady. How has she fulfilled her vaunted promise to "drain the swamp" and preside over the "most ethical Congress in history"? By shrugging her shoulders, downplaying the gravity of myriad ethics charges against corruptocrat Democrat Rep. Charlie Rangel and waiting for the "political chips" to "fall where they may"...

NATIONAL REVIEW Attorney General Eric Holder could have dictated most of Judge Susan Bolton's decision blocking key parts of the Arizona immigration law. The judge twists facts and logic to support the Justice Department's claim that the state law preempts the federal immigration scheme. To do so, she accepts Justice's implicit argument that it's not the letter of the federal law that matters, but what parts of the law the executive decides to enforce... (more)

DEANE WALDMAN Predictions of cost savings through ObamaCare, like most liberal politics, were based on magical thinking. If they want something to be true with sufficiently intensity, liberals know it must be true. Small children are natural magical thinkers... (more)

DENNIS PRAGER Of all the recent revelations to come out of JournoList, an e-mail list consisting of about 400 liberal/left journalists, perhaps the most telling is the depth of their hatred for conservatives. That these journalists would consult with one another in order to protect candidate and then President Obama and in order to hurt Republicans is unfortunate and ugly... (more)

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON According to a popular myth, President Obama's declining poll numbers are a consequence of his failure to be liberal enough. On race, in the wake of the Shirley Sherrod mess, we are told he needs to appoint more African Americans and bring in more advisers from the black community. On the economy, liberal economists decry his unwillingness to borrow and stimulate more... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN You know when a politician starts a sentence with "frankly," he's about to lie to your face. The same principle applies to campaign-finance legislation dubbed the "DISCLOSE Act." The voter's instinctive reaction should be: What are they trying to hide now?... (more)

CONNIE HAIR The patchwork array of sanctuary cities around the country is leaving dangerous criminal illegal aliens on America's streets. Local municipalities in these sanctuary cities prevent their officials from reporting illegals--even those with criminal records--to Immigrations and Customs enforcement (ICE), and it is costing American lives...

REP. LAMAR SMITH The Obama Administration is suing Arizona for wanting to enforce our nation's immigration laws, but they won't sue cities that violate our immigration laws by enacting sanctuary policies.

CHUCK NORRIS Sound too conspiratorial to be true? Like the cover-up ops of spy novels? Well, it's reality. And it is possibly the most bizarre, inhumane and abusive way that the White House is expanding its power over the American people... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Ever since the Internet became a hub for buying and selling in the early '90s, lawmakers have been itching to deal themselves in on the revenue stream.

MARIO LOYOLA The same week that the burning Deepwater Horizon rig collapsed through its pontoons and sank to the bottom of the sea, Fred Hiatt of the Washington Post admiringly observed that Obama accomplishes "usually by executive action" those priorities that he can't achieve through the normal political process. Hiatt didn't know the half of it... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST Denizens of the "liberal" media apparently really do get together and plot their propaganda line to be spread to an audience that -- in their dreams -- is primed for a sheep-like march off the cliff. Why not? Josef Goebbels whipped the Germans into a hatred of Jews. Who says Americans can't be coaxed to loathe conservatives? Or so these would-be propaganda ministers seem to believe... (more)
