RICH LOWRY — The least-plausible sentence in the English language is "We know this works," when those words are spoken by President Barack Obama. He said them the other day in his State of the Union address about early-childhood education. President Obama called for universal preschool funded by the federal government in cooperation with the states... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH — Reza Kahlili has done it, again. Yesterday the Iranian-American who served as a CIA spy in the Islamic regime's Revolutionary Guard, did his adopted country another great service -- exposing the fact that Iran is supporting al-Qaida, as it has in the past, by providing terrorist training camps...

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — We remain a nation at peril, but are we still a nation at war? In his State of the Union speech, President Obama signaled, yet again, that the war in Afghanistan is effectively over. Soon, in fact, it will be over by any honest measure: The presence of American troops will be halved to 34,000 in the coming months, and erased entirely by December 31, 2014... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH — I write this column with a certain amount of trepidation, knowing the subject not only believes he has the power to order targeted assassinations of American citizens, but has actually already misused that perceived authority. So here goes. I have come to the conclusion that nearly everything Barack Obama does under the color of his authority as president is designed to weaken our country economically, militarily and morally... (more)

NEW YORK TIMES — As the Senate edged toward a divisive filibuster vote on Chuck Hagel's nomination to be defense secretary, Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, sat silent and satisfied in the corner of the chamber -- his voice lost to laryngitis -- as he absorbed what he had wrought in his mere seven weeks of Senate service...

FRED HUTCHISON, RA ANALYST — The cultural war debate often centers on life and death issues such as abortion and euthanasia, and the question of whether we are living in a culture of life, or a culture of death. However, we seldom talk about whether our aesthetic culture of art, music, poetry, and literature is life-enhancing or life-debilitating... (more)

PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY — Karl Rove has declared war on grass-roots conservatives and tea partiers. Rove, who had the richest super PAC in 2012 (American Crossroads, which reportedly spent $300 million in the 2012 election cycle), has started a new fund called Conservative Victory Project to spend big bucks in the 2014 Republican primaries to defeat Republican candidates not approved by the Establishment...

ANDREW NAPOLITANO — President Obama willingly admits he dispatched CIA agents to kill an American and his teenage son and the son's American friend while they were in a desert in Yemen in 2011. He says he did so because the adult had encouraged folks to wage war on the United States and the children were just "collateral damage." He says further that he'll do this again when he is convinced that killing Americans will keep America safe... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — If truth is the first casualty of war, consistency is probably the second. The loudest critics of President George W. Bush's anti-terrorism policies have fallen silent as our Nobel Peace Prize-winning president ordered the killing of Americans in drone strikes... (more)


February 14, 2013
TIMOTHY P. CARNEY — President Obama rolled out the same old corporatist industrial policy in his State of the Union address, while again pretending to wage war on the "special interests." In response, Republican Sens. Marco Rubio and Rand Paul both made real, but inadequate, gestures toward the appropriate antidote: free-market populism and an end to cronyism... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH — You heard it in Barack Obama's State of the Union Address. He called for raising the minimum wage to $9 an hour. He explained, "We know our economy is stronger when we reward an honest day's work with honest wages. But today, a full-time worker making the minimum wage earns $14,500 a year. Even with the tax relief we've put in place, a family with two kids that earns the minimum wage still lives below the poverty line... (more)

F. MICHAEL MALOOF — The bomb test that North Korea conducted over the weekend was a "miniaturized" nuclear device -- suggesting to U.S. sources that the day of a North Korean "Red Dawn" EMP attack that could decimate the American power grid might be closer... (more)
