WESTERN JOURNALISM Three months ago, conservatives were jubilant over reports that Congressman Darrell Issa would offer a Contempt of Congress complaint against Eric Holder. After all, the Attorney General had openly refused to honor House Oversight Committee subpoenas for an estimated 80,000 documents vital to the Committee's investigation of the role played by members of the Obama Regime in Operation Fast and Furious...

ASSOCIATED PRESS Republican party leaders are starting to rally around Mitt Romney, but it's not exactly a stampede of support for the expected GOP presidential nominee. With Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich out of the race, Romney is his party's pick to take on President Barack Obama this fall, barring a catastrophe... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES It's not always true that the form of government closest to the people is best. In some cases, it can be the worst.

MAGGIE GALLAGHER A few years ago, beauty queen Carrie Prejean innocently answered a question about gay marriage with a polite "no." She was viciously personally attacked by Miss USA pageant judge Perez Hilton, who posted a video of himself cursing at her. Prejean was eventually stripped of her crown, and as for Perez Hilton? "I'd love to have him back," pageant owner Donald Trump once said. "I mean, I'd love to have him back" -- although he didn't actually do it... (more)

GEERT WILDERS As I write these lines, there are police bodyguards at the door. No visitor can enter my office without passing through several security checks and metal detectors. I have been marked for death. I am forced to live in a heavily protected safe house. Every morning, I am driven to my office in the Dutch Parliament building in an armored car with sirens and flashing blue lights... (more)

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY A few years back, I wrote a book called "Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad." It was about being on the "front lines," so to speak, of the battle against Muslim terrorism. I put "front lines" in quotes because, though the terrorists saw themselves as fighting a doctrinally ordained war of armed combat, we were treating them as mere criminals -- such that our idea of a battlefield was the federal courthouse, and our idea of a commander was, well . . . me...

MICHELLE MALKIN Quick, hide under the covers. The nation's storyteller, Barack Obama, unveiled a frightening new fable on the Internet intended to scare women away from supporting fiscal conservatives in November.

ALAN KEYES A significant number of America's voters still believe in government of, by, and for the people. They still believe in the moral premises the American people first articulated in order to justify and explain their decision to separate and withdraw themselves from the dominion of the British monarch. Standing, as it were, before God and all humanity, they made plain "the causes which impel them to the separation"... (more)

EMILY MILLER Thanks to Obamacare, more people will find themselves without health insurance. It turns out President Obama's signature accomplishment was so badly drafted that businesses are likely to find it more cost-effective to pay a government penalty than provide insurance to their employees. As a result, up to 6 million Americans with jobs could either be forced to find more expensive individual plans or go uninsured and pay the individual-mandate fine... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Mormonism and Islam are among the fastest growing religions in America, while just over half of all Americans are unaffiliated with any denomination, according to a major census of the country's religious congregations published Wednesday. The decennial census, released by the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies in Chicago, found that the U.S. Muslim community had increased 160 percent from approximately 1 million in 2000 to 2.6 million in 2010...

JOSEPH FARAH It's a familiar story to us here at WND -- another big global event, and one news agency is singled out for blacklisting. This time it was the White House that went out of its way to see that an AMERICAN press outlet was denied entry to a meeting with Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations following her month-long tenure as head of the Security Council...

WASHINGTON TIMES The one-year anniversary of Osama bin Laden's death has brought out the worst in President Obama's supporters. The football spiking and victory dancing has spun out of control.
