JOSEPH FARAH If you were channel surfing last Wednesday night, you might have caught a trifecta of WND-bashing and Farah-faulting. Let's start at the bottom of the media barrel -- Keith Olbermann on Al Gore's Current TV. I'm not just "the worst person in the world," a distinction I earned numerous times on Olbermann's old MSNBC show before he was righteously fired... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN As a rueful Queen Elizabeth once said of a particularly rough year for the royal family, 2011 is "not a year on which" Queen Nancy Pelosi "shall look back with undiluted pleasure." The former House Speaker relinquished her crown -- er, gavel -- in January. It's been an epic downhill ski crash ever since... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani, the Iranian Christian cleric facing death for the crime of apostasy against an Islamic faith he never held, has been given a temporary stay of execution. Iran's top judge, Ayatollah Sadegh Larijani, instructed presiding Judge Ghazi Kashani to delay carrying out capital punishment for a year in order to give time for Mr. Nadarkhani to recant Christianity and become a Muslim...

ROBERT KNIGHT Is it racist to require people to show a photo ID when they vote? You need a photo ID for nearly any meaningful transaction, such as cashing checks, including government checks. If this simple requirement "suppresses" the vote, maybe we need to ask why it's such a great idea to push for universal suffrage for every adult who is merely breathing... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Frequent travelers know better than anyone that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) needs serious reform. The agency spends $7.7 billion in taxpayer money every year, and it hasn't nabbed a single terrorist... (more)

CNSNEWS.COM While President Barack Obama has focused his rhetoric in recent weeks on depicting a reckless Wall Street and insufficiently taxed "millionaires and billionaires" as threats to the American middle class, a newly released Gallup poll indicates that Americans apparently have been coming to a different conclusion during Obama's presidency...

DAVID LIMBAUGH "We hold these Truths to be self-evident . . ." What truths? What has happened to our passion for liberty? I am concerned that we conservatives, instead of making our case as fearless champions of liberty, are too often on the defensive, preoccupied with trying to prove we aren't the demons the left says we are...

WORLDNETDAILY Buried within an 1,844-page bill currently sitting on Barack Obama's desk awaiting his signature is text that many critics are warning could give the president legal authority to send Americans to jail without charges, without trial, without end... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH Did you hear about Barack Obama's Defense Department characterizing the execution-style shooting slayings of 13 and wounding of 29 at Fort Hood in 2009 by a crazed Islamist Army officer as "workplace violence"? It's no joke. This administration is certifiably insane -- from the top down... (more)

NEWSMAX Members of Congress saw the light and heeded Americans' pleas today as House Republicans saved powerful incandescent light bulbs from the scrapheap. "It's a little ray of sunshine, of natural light," Texas Rep. Michael Burgess, a Republican who had led the fight against the ban, told Newsmax... (more)

MARK STEYN Christmas in America is a season of time-honored traditions -- the sacred performance of the annual ACLU lawsuit over the presence of an insufficiently secular "holiday" tree; the ritual provocations of the atheist displays licensed by pitifully appeasing municipalities to sit between the menorah and the giant Frosty the Snowman... (more)

NEWSMAX Texas Rep. Ron Paul said Thursday he has "no intention" of running for president as a third-party candidate if he does not get the Republican presidential nomination. When pressed, however, he shied away from saying his decision was "absolute," although he clarified he "cannot conceive of it"... (more)

JOHN HAYWARD The Obama 2012 campaign will be a profoundly moralistic enterprise. Its practical components have recently been field-tested. The President himself turned up on "60 Minutes" last weekend to unveil the latest updated version of his "Blame Bush" strategy, in which the horrible numbers swirling around his moribund economy are actually the fault of his predecessor...

WASHINGTON TIMES Imagine China without the Communist Party. The people of one Chinese fishing village have made that a reality. Earlier this week, mobs of angry villagers chased communist officials and police out of Wukan, a coastal town of 20,000 in southeastern China. A dispute had been simmering for months with party bosses after a series of land seizures... (more)

NATIONAL REVIEW A hard-fought presidential primary campaign is obscuring the uncharacteristic degree of unity within the Republican party. It has reached a conservative consensus on most of the pressing issues of the day. All of the leading candidates, and almost all of the lagging ones, support the right to life... (more)

PHILIP KLEIN A series of recent polls suggest that Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, has emerged as a real threat to win in Iowa, despite his controversial foreign policy views. One survey, by Public Policy Polling, finds him within one point of front-runner Newt Gingrich... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES The U.S. military's fast-approaching Dec. 31 exit from Iraq, which has no way to defend its airspace, puts Israel in a better place strategically to strike Iran's nuclear facilities. Iraq has yet to assemble a force of jet fighters, and since the shortest route for Israeli strike fighters to Iran is through Iraqi airspace, observers conclude that the U.S. exit makes the Jewish state's mission planning a lot easier...

PETER LEMISKA Not long ago, Herman Cain was a clear favorite to win the Republican nomination for President. He was seen as a likeable, yet savvy businessman and a bold straight-talker, a welcome relief from the life-long denizens of D.C., who care more about their own political futures than the future of the country...

NEWSMAX Polls showing Newt Gingrich strongly ahead of Mitt Romney in the Republican presidential race continue to pour in. The latest: A Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey finds former House Speaker Gingrich leading former Massachusetts Gov. Romney 40 percent to 23 percent among likely GOP voters.
