JOSEPH FARAH Tell me I'm hallucinating. Did Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell actually propose giving Barack Obama the power to raise the debt limit himself through the remainder of his term -- without any requirement to cut even a dime of spending? He drives a hard bargain, doesn't he?... (more)

EMILY MILLER President Obama and congressional Democrats have resorted to scaring seniors and soldiers in order to extract trillions in new borrowing and spending authority from timid Republicans. Some GOP members and even conservative pundits already are raising the white flag now that the debt talks appear beyond repair. It's time for them to show some backbone. Fortunately, there are others in the party willing to fight... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN A rising chorus of repeal-mongers, outraged at the Obama administration's federal health-care power grab, took over Washington this week. Nope, it's not the tea party. It's Democrats against the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). Yes, Democrats... (more)

REP. PAUL BROUN As a wise person, would you invest in a business if its expenses always exceed its revenue? Don't you think it both foolish and dangerous to be involved in a business that is already operating at a huge deficit but continues to assume more debt? Would you operate your family finances in such a way? Would you advise your children that perpetual debt should be their goal in life?... (more)

DAVID KUPELIAN "Are you telling me you're going to completely eliminate all police protection for the people of this city between midnight and 8 a.m. every day -- so that criminals will have a free hand to rob, rape and steal every night?" That was the question posed by incredulous citizens to the city council at a packed meeting many years ago in the town I then called home... (more)

ROBERT SPENCER The suicidal side of the Western elites' pervasive tendency toward fantasy-based policy making was on full display last week when the U.S. and the European Union both announced that they were opening formal contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood, a group dedicated, in its own words, to "eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house"...

WASHINGTON TIMES Nearly everyone in Congress says President Obama has mishandled the war in Libya, but that's as far as the consensus goes -- members of the Senate and, in particular, the House have struggled to find unity on ways to rein in his actions... (more)

NEWSMAX Nine in 10 voters say it is important for Congress and President Barack Obama to reduce the nation's long-term debt, and a majority prefer spending cuts over increased revenues as the means of accomplishing that goal, a new IBOPE Zogby Interactive poll finds... (more)

ASSOCIATED PRESS Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann says she's not worried about the nation defaulting if the debt ceiling isn't increased. The Minnesota congresswoman says there are a number of options to keep the government running if the debt ceiling isn't raised by August... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST Glenn Beck stepped on a lot of powerful toes while at Fox News, so it was no surprise that his three-year contract ended six months prior to its planned expiration. However..... One very likely reason for that goes to an issue that is largely overlooked... (more)

DANIEL J. FLYNN The California state legislature has passed a book-banning law. Nobody is calling the book ban a book ban because the books the book ban bans offend homosexuals. If the legislature had extended legislative protection to the hurt feelings of, say, Mormons or evangelical Christians, then everyone would have agreed that it's a book ban. But it doesn't, so don't call the book ban a book ban. You just might get banned, too... (more)

FOX NEWS Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell told Fox News that he thinks a major deficit-reduction deal cutting $4 trillion over the next decade is off the table, claiming Democrats are pushing too hard for tax increases... (more)

HUMAN EVENTS The Left had a grand old time with President George W. Bush's mangling of the English language, and let Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann make a slip of the tongue and the mainstream media will turn it into a major news story. Not so with President Obama's verbal missteps. Here, to bring balance to the ridicule, are the Top 10 Obama Gaffes... (more)

DAVID LIMBAUGH Someone recently emailed and asked me to rebut the claim that fascism is a right-wing system. I have given this question considerable thought over the years; even when I was in college, liberals routinely smeared conservatism as a fascist political ideology. Indeed, how many times have we heard the mantra that communism and Nazism represented the two extremes of the political spectrum, left and right, respectively?... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH Sometimes the news seems stranger than fiction. Who could dream up a plot line like this? Several law enforcement agencies of the federal government, including the FBI, Justice Department, Department of Homeland Security, Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, got together to hatch a plan to sell guns to Mexican drug cartel members -- at least one of which was later used to murder a Border Patrol agent...

WASHINGTON TIMES When you find yourself in a hole, you're supposed to stop digging. Not today's political class, however, which seems intent as a bunch of gophers mainlining amphetamines to burrow ever deeper, longer and wider into a morass of debt, unneeded and costly regulations, and just plain boondoggles...

ROBERT KNIGHT When Timothy F. Geithner whipped out his pocket Constitution in May to address the debt-ceiling issue, the rivers in Hades must have been packed with ice-skaters. Consult the Constitution? The Treasury secretary appeared to be out of order in an administration whose standard operating procedure is flouting the rule of law. Of course, even the devil can quote Scripture... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN Splendid news: Our homeland-security officials have sent fresh warnings to foreign governments that "human bombs" may try to board planes with surgically implanted explosives. The ticking terrorists are reportedly getting help from murder-minded Arab Muslim physicians trained in the West. Infidels beware: Dr. Jihad's version of the health-care oath omits the "no" in "Do no harm"... (more)


July 7, 2011
WASHINGTON TIMES The federal judiciary is slowly coming to the realization that the Second Amendment actually means the public can have guns. That's not sitting well with local politicians in Chicago and Washington who are determined to keep the public disarmed. On Wednesday, the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals made that harder by blowing away the claim that "gun violence" concerns justified rules depriving citizens of the right not only to own but also to use firearms in a responsible manner...
