CONSERVATIVE HQ In the first ConservativeHQ.com (CHQ) 2012 presidential straw poll, a majority of conservative activists chose Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) as their favorite Republican candidate for the 2012 race.

MICHELLE MALKIN Open-borders radicalism means never having to apologize for absurd self-contradiction. The way illegal alien students on college campuses across the country tell it, America is a cruel, selfish and racist nation that has never given them or their families a break. Yet despite their bottomless grievances, they're not going anywhere... (more)

ANN COULTER The two biggest stories this week are WikiLeaks' continued publication of classified government documents, which did untold damage to America's national security interests, and the Democrats' fanatical determination to repeal "don't ask, don't tell" and allow gays to serve openly in the military...

ROLL CALL A food safety bill that has burned up precious days of the Senate's lame-duck session appears headed back to the chamber because Democrats violated a constitutional provision requiring that tax provisions originate in the House... (more)


December 1, 2010
ASSOCIATED PRESS Senate Republicans threatened Wednesday to block virtually all legislation until expiring tax cuts are extended and a bill is passed to fund the federal government, vastly complicating Democratic attempts to leave their own stamp on the final days of the post-election Congress...

WASHINGTON TIMES In the latest evidence that the November elections are forcing a new political pragmatism on the White House, President Obama's chairman of the Federal Communications Commission outlined a revised plan to regulate Internet traffic on Wednesday that is more friendly to business interests...

JOSEPH FARAH Republicans couldn't really be this stupid, could they? Unless House Majority Leader-designate Eric Cantor was thoroughly misquoted by Politico, which is entirely possible, the Republican sellout has already begun... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY A Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives is now urging Congress to freeze funding for the controversial nude-image scanners being installed in airports around the nation by the Transportation Security Administration... (more)

PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY Republicans are assuming that cap-and-trade (aka cap-and-tax) is dead because Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid lacks the votes to bring up the House-passed bill and because this issue proved a loser in the 2010 House races... (more)

MICHAEL TANNER They haven't even finished counting 2010 midterm ballots (New York's 1st congressional district is still undecided), but already potential Republican candidates are testing the presidential waters for 2012. Among the early frontrunners will be former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney... (more)


December 1, 2010
WASHINGTON TIMES The Senate on Tuesday rejected a moratorium on earmark spending, in a test vote that nonetheless showed surging support for a ban and left foes of pork-barrel spending predicting that the end of the practice is near. Thirty-nine senators supported a three-year ban - 10 more than voted for a similar moratorium earlier this year... (more)

ED FEULNER Years ago, the biggest question you'd get while flying was "Coffee or tea?" Now it's "Naked body scan or aggressive pat-down?" Behind that dilemma is the real choice. It's the one too many Americans have been unwilling to face: Should we "profile" -- i.e., concentrate our security efforts on the individuals more likely to pose a threat?... (more)

VIRGIL GOODE In my last op-ed, I attacked Harry Reid's attempt to force a vote on the DREAM Act by tacking it on a defense bill. Fortunately, we defeated this move. Unfortunately, less than two months later, the Democrats are planning to vote on it during the lame-duck session... (more)

NAT HENTOFF Dick Armey, former House Majority Leader, is a conservative libertarian who has become an adviser and occasional organizer for the tea partiers. They have no maximum leader, but their guiding light, they proclaim, is the Constitution... (more)

L. BRENT BOZELL III America was founded on the principle of representative democracy: the government would make policy based on the consent of the governed. Liberal elitists have grown increasingly impatient with this unenlightened system, and more and more, they are relying on judicial activists to remake society in their desired image... (more)

ERICK ERICKSON Thank God that Ronald Reagan put his principles ahead of politics. As regular readers know, I'm not fully enamored by Dick Morris, but one of the best quotes on polling I've ever heard comes from Dick Morris... (more)

CHRISTIAN POST An Oklahoma amendment that bans state judges from consulting Islamic law has been blocked from going into effect. Judge Vicky Miles-Lagrange issued a preliminary injunction on Monday, ruling that the amendment "fosters an excessive government entanglement with religion"... (more)

DICK MORRIS The WikiLeaks documents show that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has, as Voltaire said about the Bourbon kings of France, learned nothing and forgotten nothing. Her request that American diplomats at foreign postings and the United Nations gather personal data about their foreign counterparts is eerily reminiscent of her use of private detectives to unearth negative information on those who were politically inconvenient during the husband's campaigns for president and his White House tenure...

JOHN HAYWARD The expected drop of classified documents from WikiLeaks occurred Sunday afternoon, producing stories in the New York Times and several foreign newspapers. The leaked documents include both national security matters and sensitive diplomatic information... (more)

DENNIS PRAGER By now, most people (with the exception of many psychotherapists) recognize that the self-esteem movement officially launched by California in 1986 has been at best silly, and at worst injurious to society, despite whatever small benefit it may have had to some individuals... (more)


November 30, 2010
JOSEPH FARAH Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., calls the so-called WikiLeaks scandal "worse than a military attack." If that's true, it has given us an idea of how Barack Obama's administration might respond in the event of an actual military attack. Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a criminal investigation... (more)

JASON MATTERA Bobby Jindal wasted no time assessing this administration's approach to fighting terrorism, mocking Obama's strategy as a "treatise on social justice." In part two of his exclusive interview with HUMAN EVENTS, the Louisiana Governor argued that Obama's inability to talk honestly about radical Islam stems from the President's erroneous perception of why the threat even exists...
