NEWSMAX Sen. Pat Toomey says there is "no scenario" in which he envisions America's defaulting on its debt -- and the Obama administration admits privately that the threats it has been making for weeks are not true. The bigger problem is that the U.S. credit rating will be downgraded if fiscal problems are not addressed, the Pennsylvania Republican also said Monday on Fox News... (more)

DAVID KUPELIAN "I hate to disrespect the president, but he's lying."

July 26, 2011
WASHINGTON TIMES It is a well-told story that the mainstream media - at least to a small degree - have a liberal bias. It's surprising, then, that few people have examined, or even asked, a potentially more important question: Does the bias matter? If the media reports the news with a certain slant, how does it affect those who take in the content?... (more)


July 26, 2011
WASHINGTON TIMES Congressional Democrats and Republicans waged a war of words on Monday over their debt-ceiling plans, but their agendas amount to pretty much the same thing. Washington just can't kick its spending habit. Both the blueprints cooked up by House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, claim 10-year domestic spending reductions equivalent to a bit over $1 trillion with the creation of new committees to find more spending reforms...

JOSEPH FARAH After more than 30 years of observing and covering politics, I wrote in "The Tea Party Manifesto" that there is a major misconception about a "divide" in the movement between so-called "social conservatives" and so-called "economic conservatives." What I found was that these labels are not only terribly misleading, but virtually meaningless if one's goal is to understand the dynamics at work with the conservative movement... (more)

NEWSMAX Journalists who need an ego boost about their chosen profession as a lofty endeavor won't like their reflection in a new poll from The Hill. Almost 70 percent of likely voters characterize the Fourth Estate as biased, and 57 percent contend that reporters are very unethical, or at least somewhat so... (more)


July 25, 2011

July 24, 2011
NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE On Sunday, men will marry men and women will marry women, by law, in the State of New York. As we see the photos -- and watch the protests -- we should ask how and why it matters to anyone but the same-sex couples who marry. What have we learned in the Empire State and what's next for marriage, in New York and elsewhere? National Review Online asked some experts... (more)


July 24, 2011
WASHINGTON TIMES Inspired by a contentious Nebraska law, abortion opponents in five other states have won passage of measures banning virtually all abortions after five months of pregnancy. The late-term bans -- based on the premise that fetuses at that stage can feel pain, a view that has been disputed -- are among a record wave of more than 80 restrictions aimed at reducing access to abortion, all of them approved so far this year in state legislatures...

DAVID LIMBAUGH The vaunted budget plan from the "Gang of Six" is said to be growing in popularity, but all you need to know to oppose the plan is that a "gang" is behind it. Also, President Obama and Sen. Dick Durbin both support it. But let's not stop there. We all know the major drivers of this careening national debt train are entitlement programs, yet this plan proposes no real structural reforms... (more)

ASSOCIATED PRESS What if they yield, even a little? Call it GOP Primary Fear. A major hurdle to breaking the federal debt-ceiling impasse is the worry by House Republicans that they will invite primary election challenges from the right if they give ground to Democrats on the issue of higher tax revenues...

ASSOCIATED PRESS The ban on gays in the military has stood for nearly a century. In 60 days, after decades of discharges, lawsuits and lobbying, that will change. On Friday, President Barack Obama fulfilled a 2008 campaign pledge and formally ended the ban... (more)


July 22, 2011
ASSOCIATED PRESS Texas governor and potential Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry says he supports state rights so much that he's fine with New York allowing gay marriage.

ROBERT KNIGHT Of all the bombs that liberal pundits toss at the Tea Party, none better illustrates why the GOP should actually pay attention than Thursday's article by E. J. Dionne Jr., the liberal Washington Post columnist. Mr. Dionne, who looks at President Obama's feet and sees water wings, often tries to advise the Republican Party out of the goodness of his heart...
