Now, the BBC reports a giant new Chinese-built city has been spotted in Africa in the outskirts of Angola's capital Luanda. The city, Nova Cidade de Kilamba, was designed to hold up to a half million people and features 750 eight-story apartment buildings, 12 schools and more than 100 retail units, according to the report...

JOSEPH FARAH It has been 236 years since the drafting and signing by America's founders of our national birth certificate, the Declaration of Independence. That's why some of us -- too few, really -- call the holiday we commemorate today "Independence Day." That is, indeed, the actual name of the holiday... (more)

THOMAS SOWELL Betrayal is hard to take, whether in our personal lives or in the political life of the nation. Yet there are people in Washington -- too often, Republicans -- who start living in the Beltway atmosphere, and start forgetting those hundreds of millions of Americans beyond the Beltway who trusted them to do right by them, to use their wisdom instead of their cleverness...

ALAN KEYES In the face of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Arizona v. United States, I invite my readers to revisit the column "Arizona is right to defend against foreign invasion." In that column, I anticipated the fateful abrogation of state sovereignty and their own sworn duty to the U.S. Constitution the majority of Supreme Court justices have now perpetrated... (more)

HAROLD WITKOV Then the Lord appeared to Chief Justice Roberts and said, "The outrage of America is so great, and their sin is so grave!

CBS NEWS Chief Justice John Roberts initially sided with the Supreme Court's four conservative justices to strike down the heart of President Obama's health care reform law, the Affordable Care Act, but later changed his position and formed an alliance with liberals to uphold the bulk of the law, according to two sources with specific knowledge of the deliberations...

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY Chief Justice John Roberts' judicial sleight of hand, transforming Obamacare's mandate into a tax, was a fittingly twisted save for a law of such grisly provenance. Born of tawdry liaisons between industry lobbyists and political hacks, passed through naked logrolling and legislative skullduggery, Obamacare wasn't finalized until Thursday, when the chief justice, in effect, amended the bill so that it would become constitutional...

ROBERT KNIGHT When is a tax not a tax? Answer: When you're busy pushing a major expansion of government like Obamacare. The tax that is not a tax becomes a "penalty" or a "shared responsibility payment" in the text of the bill. In campaign lingo, it becomes an "investment"... (more)

ANDREW NAPOLITANO If you drive a car, I'll tax the street, If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat. If you get too cold, I'll tax the heat, If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet. -The Beatles in "The Taxman"... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY Legendary comic Jackie Mason panned the logic of Chief Justice John Roberts' ruling on Obamacare during a radio interview today, saying the 2,700-page decision was so convoluted, it could have been written by Mason himself as material for a one-man Broadway show... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY This Independence Day, people across the country will celebrate the momentous national holiday by gathering in groups to read America's birth certificate. President Calvin Coolidge, in a speech on the 150-year anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, called it "the most important civil document in the world" and "one of the great charters that not only was to liberate America but was everywhere to ennoble humanity"...

HUMAN EVENTS Obama's power grabs are designed to implement his ideological goals, no matter whether they violate his oath of office. November can't come soon enough. (1) Immigration: By declaring that he will no longer deport most young illegal immigrants, Obama is refusing to follow congressionally passed immigration bills signed into law by earlier presidents...

PHILIP KLEIN In the immediate aftermath of the health care ruling, Chief Justice John Roberts' decision to side with the Supreme Court's liberal bloc to uphold President Obama's national health care law came under a furious assault from the right. That was followed by a swarm of counter-reaction among conservatives defending his decision as a master stroke in the long run... (more)

BYRON YORK I ran into a prominent conservative member of Congress Friday night just before the huge storms moved through Washington. He was, he said, far angrier on the day after the Supreme Court Obamacare decision than he had been the moment he learned Chief Justice John Roberts had joined the Court's liberal bloc to uphold the individual mandate at the heart of Obamacare...

JOSEPH FARAH America is in big trouble. Thanks to Barack Obama's radical agenda, carried out with near dictatorial zeal, the country is going broke. So what is Mitt Romney's response? If you haven't noticed, he is already lowering expectations about what he will do to reverse course as president. This is not a good sign... (more)

BYRON YORK No one knew it at the time, but the key moment in the Supreme Court Obamacare case came on March 26, the first day of oral arguments, when few people were paying close attention. Before getting to the heart of the case, the justices first wanted to deal with what seemed to be a side issue: Was the penalty imposed by the individual mandate in Obamacare a tax?... (more)

WEEKLY STANDARD Chief Justice John Roberts held in his majority opinion today that Obamacare's individual mandate may be considered a constitutional tax rather than an unconstitutional mandate... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH This was a momentous news day. It was the day the U.S. Supreme Court held the Constitution in contempt and the day the Congress held Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt. It's a sign of the times. We live in an age of contemptuous government. Washington holds the people and the rule of law in contempt... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES The House on Thursday cited Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. for contempt of Congress in a historic vote weighted with political significance -- though it does little to break the stalemate over his decision to withhold documents regarding the Justice Department's actions in a botched gunwalking operation...
