WES VERNON, RA ANALYST No alliance -- either worldwide or on our soil -- is as under-reported as the collaboration between Communism and radical Islam. Back in the eighties, on the old syndicated CBS Radio program Crosstalk, Benjamin Netanyahu, then Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, told me that the (then still existing) Soviet Union was behind much of the Middle East terrorism...

FRANK GAFFNEY Ronald Reagan forged a winning electoral majority on the stable foundation of what he described as a three-legged stool: fiscal discipline, traditional values and peace through strength. He understood it to be an appealing platform to the American people writ large, including, of course, economic, social and national-security conservatives and the rest of his Republican Party...

NEWSMAX Already stung by the Romney campaign's reaction to the Chick-fil-A battle, social conservatives are openly voicing doubts that their concerns will receive much more than lip service at the GOP convention... (more)

WALTER WILLIAMS In Europe, especially in Germany, hoisting a swastika-emblazoned Nazi flag is a crime. For decades after World War II, people have hunted down and sought punishment for Nazi murderers, who were responsible for the deaths of more than 20 million people... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Catholics opposed to President Obama attending the annual Alfred E. Smith charity dinner in New York have started an online petition urging Cardinal Timothy Dolan to withdraw his invitation to the president. "If Cardinal John O'Connor didn't invite pro-abort Bill Clinton in 1996, and if Cardinal Egan didn't invite pro-abort John Kerry in 2004, then on what grounds could your Eminence find to invite Obama in 2012?"...

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY Watch the video above, of a pro-life Christian group confronting an abortion doctor. The doctor says his abortions save taxpayers money, prevent shootings like the one in Colorado, and rid the world of "ugly black babies"... (more)

ROBERT RECTOR President Obama has created a firestorm by overturning the work requirements of the popular 1996 welfare-reform law. Now his White House is bristling because Mitt Romney dares to point out that fact on the stump and in a new campaign ad... (more)

JOHN FUND The London Olympics features 302 events. But this year there clearly is a new category: racial sensitivity. These Olympic Games are rife with examples of people taking offense, and it's time to discuss some guardrails and guidelines before political correctness takes over completely... (more)

ROB DOSTER American hurdler Lolo Jones occupies that usually enviable spot where marketing appeal and athletic achievement intersect. Unfortunately for Jones, when the former outstrips the latter, the backlash from media backbiters indulging their petty cynicism can be ruthless... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST America's loose "honor system" in voting is no longer viable, assuming it ever was. For decades we joked about the cemetery precincts in Chicago and elsewhere, and how statewide elections in Illinois were basically a battle between the elder Mayor Richard Daley, a Democrat, and the downstate Republicans as to who could do the best job of fictionalizing the vote count. But they were seen as anomalies... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST Months before Barack Obama assumed the presidency, many Americans seeking substance in lieu of "change" sloganeering had an uneasy feeling about the man. There were just enough unsettling reports on parts of his background to raise concerns. But at that time, those questions elicited few answers. That is because Mr. Obama had spent millions to hide his background... (more)

ALAN KEYES "My view is that regardless of whether you think prohibiting abortion is good or whether you think prohibiting abortion is bad -- regardless of how you come out on that -- my only point is the Constitution does not say anything about it," Justice Scalia stated. "It leaves it up to democratic choice. Some states prohibited it and some states didn't. What Roe v. Wade said was that no state can prohibit it"... (more)

NEWSMAX Even as Chick-fil-A sets sales records thanks to supporters of traditional marriage flooding into stores to support its Christian values, one conservative politican is having nothing to do with the controversy. And he's the one running for president... (more)

LLOYD MARCUS I jump on every opportunity to respectfully challenge my 84-year-old black dad's loyalty to Obama. Dad has been a Christian pastor over 50 years. He lives in Maryland and I live in Florida. I called Dad to ask if he participated in Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. He said, no he had not heard about it. Then, he added, "All I know is Chick-fil-A discriminates against gays."... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH A new poll from the Pew Research Center suggests 65 percent of Democrats now support same-sex marriage, whereas only 50 percent did at the time of the last Democratic presidential nominating convention. I suppose that's to be expected. In 2008, not one Democratic presidential candidate -- not Barack Obama, not Hillary Clinton, not Joe Biden, not John Edwards -- supported same sex-marriage and other twisted unions involving "transgendereds" and other poor souls...

WASHINGTON EXAMINER With Congress embarking this week on a monthlong recess despite its failure to act on several critical issues, Democrats unleashed a pre-election public relations assault, accusing Republicans of ignoring the middle class, abandoning bipartisanship and instead catering to the wealthy and the far-right Tea Party...

WASHINGTON TIMES President Obama goes out of his way to appear to support the troops. But when it comes to voting, he would like to keep them out of the fight. The Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party are suing the critical swing state of Ohio to strike down a law that makes it easier for members of the military to vote...

NEWSMAX A number of prominent Jewish-Americans have begun to jump ship from President Barack Obama's re-election effort, reports The Washington Post. "Who will be next? It's become a bit of a guessing game as to which prominent Jewish supporter/defender of the president's Israel policy will be the next to break publicly with him," pens conservative Post blogger Jennifer Rubin...

THE TENNESSEAN The party of Cordell Hull, Estes Kefauver and Al Gore Sr. and Jr. won't have a standard-bearer -- or at least not one it can stomach -- in Tennessee's next U.S. Senate race. Less than 24 hours after a man espousing conservative and libertarian views surprised the state's political scene by winning the Democratic nomination, the Tennessee Democratic Party disavowed him, saying he's part of an anti-gay hate group...

ONE NEWS NOW With Target's new wedding registry ad featuring a male couple, one proponent of natural marriage says the retailer is apparently promoting homosexual marriage.

ABC NEWS Last summer, Laura, a young woman originally from the suburbs of Salt Lake City, became the first among her siblings to get married. This summer, she became a mother.

WASHINGTON TIMES The Tea Party hasn't dominated the headlines in quite some time. Following its ballot-box success in 2010, the loosely organized small-government movement has taken a breather. Results from Tuesday's primary elections in Texas and Georgia leave little doubt that the Tea Party is back and ready for action in November... (more)
