NATIONAL REVIEW A year ago, Kim Lehman, a Republican National Committee member from Iowa, paced across the ballroom at the Gaylord Hotel in National Harbor, Md., hunting for votes. The race for the party chairmanship had reached an unprecedented seventh ballot and her candidate, Wisconsin Republican Reince Priebus, was nearing the prize. But he wasn't there yet... (more)

NEWSMAX There's no problem about Mitt Romney taking conservative positions during the primary that may upset the liberal media; come this fall, he can erase them and start all over again. That's the word from Eric Fehrnstrom, a senior campaign aide to Romney, who told CNN Wednesday that after his candidate's big win in Illinois Tuesday he can still change course... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY "America's toughest sheriff" says there is "tons" more potentially shocking information on Barack Obama in connection with his probe into the president's eligibility, and he calls the media's suppression of his findings of a likely forged presidential birth certificate and Selective Service Card "probably the biggest censorship blackout in the history of the United States"...

WASHINGTON TIMES An Idaho couple facing ruinous fines for attempting to build a home on private property that the federal government considered protected wetlands may challenge an order from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday in a unanimous decision... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Federal agencies are out of control. The grant of virtually unlimited power with no accountability has gone to the heads of some unelected bureaucrats, and nowhere is that more true than at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Even the Supreme Court has had enough. All nine justices agreed Wednesday that the agency has finally gone too far... (more)

J.C. WATTS Four years ago, the State Department issued permits authorizing the construction of an oil pipeline that would cross our northern border on its way from Alberta, Canada, down to oil refineries in Texas. Along the way, this pipeline would snake through more than a half-dozen states, creating jobs and contributing to local tax bases. In fact, the pipeline would create tens of thousands of good-paying jobs, which are badly needed during this economic rut... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER The Marine Corps Times previews its cover story about anti-Obama Marines at their 'Battle Rattle' blog.

WORLDNETDAILY Did the parents of former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers help finance Barack Obama's Harvard education? Did Ayers' mother believe Obama was a foreign student? And was the young Obama convinced at the time -- long before he even entered politics -- that he was going to become president of the United States?... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH This was the day the media died -- officially. The most well-read news story anywhere got no mention on Fox News, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, the New York Times or any other so-called "mainstream" news outlet -- a laughable adjective. The story wasn't overlooked. It was deliberately spiked. The media knew it was coming. They didn't want any part of it... (more)

NEWSVINE The millions of dollars spent by Mitt Romney's allies on TV ads attacking his two main rivals have helped Romney pull ahead in the GOP presidential race. The resulting bitterness, however, is making it hard for him to lock down the nomination and end the party fighting that delights Democrats... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST This column — here, now, and forever — rejects any and all invitations for membership in a Denounce Club. That is...where we are pressured to denounce fellow pro-Americans, a classic divide-and-conquer scenario inscribed in the strategy bible of those who take a dim view of America and Americans in general...

THOMAS SOWELL Many people may be voting for Mitt Romney because of the view in some quarters that he is the inevitable Republican candidate for president of the United States, and the candidate with the best chance of beating Barack Obama, rather than because they actually prefer Romney to the other candidates...

DAILY CALLER In Puerto Rico, for the price of 20 delegates, Mitt Romney sold out his conservative principles. There is a long history of Congress requiring English to be the language of government and schools for territories seeking to be admitted to the Union -- e.g., Louisiana, Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma...

STEPHANIE HESSLER For the first time, President Obama's Justice Department has attempted to explain the administration's policy on targeted killings of U.S. citizens. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.'s speech earlier this month came five months after an American citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki, was killed in Yemen by a predator drone without any judicial review... (more)

DAVID LIMBAUGH President Barack Obama said, "The package we've put together" will "start bending the cost curve on healthcare" and "cut the deficit by a trillion dollars." Even a sympathetic Congressional Budget Office has finally put the nail in the coffin of that howler. At the time Obama made the claim, we all knew it was specious, and study after study came out showing just how fraudulent it was. There was the double counting on Medicare, the "Doc Fix" scam, and a host of others... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH Rush Limbaugh got it exactly right Friday, as he so often does. Where else did you hear about the fanatical Barack Obama disciple from Tennessee convicted of making death threats against Sheriff Joe Arpaio beside WND? Try to imagine if a Newt Gingrich supporter or a fan of Mitt Romney had made such a threat against any Democratic official in the United States -- even an unknown... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN This has got to be the bazooka of all Joe Biden blowhardisms. The nation's vice campaigner-in-chief went on the attack against Republicans this week, clad in full populist armor. "These guys don't have a sense of the average folks out there," said the Everyman. "They don't know what it means to be middle class." But who was his audience?... (more)

GARY BAUER Whether it's the "war on science" or the "war on labor unions," the left never tires of painting conservatives as domestic policy war mongers. Now liberals are revisiting another fictitious conservative war, against women. At the Women in the World Summit in New York last week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blasted tyrants across the globe... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES If the pope called for the destruction of all the mosques in Europe, the uproar would be cataclysmic. Pundits would lambaste the church, the White House would rush out a statement of deep concern, and rioters in the Middle East would kill each other in their grief. But when the most influential leader in the Muslim world issues a fatwa to destroy Christian churches, the silence is deafening... (more)

NEWSMAX The Council for National Policy, a publicity-shy conservative group, is working hard to support Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum. The group raised $1.8 million for the former Pennsylvania senator's campaign and the super PAC supporting him at its meeting last weekend, Politico reports... (more)

EMILY MILLER The conventional wisdom in Washington is that nothing significant will be done until after the November election. As the country racks up debt at a pace faster than ever in history, a few lawmakers refuse to just sit back, avoiding controversy. They want to tackle the biggest driver of red ink, Medicare, and do it this year... (more)
