ALAN DERSHOWITZ As the rockets continue to fall in Israel and Gaza, it is important to understand Hamas's tactic and how the international community and the media are encouraging it. Hamas's tactic is as simple as it is criminal and brutal. Its leaders know that by repeatedly firing rockets at Israeli civilian areas, they will give Israel no choice but to respond. Israel's response will target the rockets and those sending them... (more)

FRANK GAFFNEY While debating Mitt Romney this fall, President Obama declared that he had decided to embrace the term "Obamacare" -- a name originally coined and used by its detractors to tie the president firmly to the health care fiasco he had spawned. Perhaps he will, therefore, not object if we dub the escalating conflict in the Middle East by a similarly apt name: "Obamawar."... (more)

JOHN FUND The characters in the latest example of South Florida's dysfunctional election system -- recall the Bush v. Gore debacle in 2000 -- are worthy of a Carl Hiaasen potboiler. Congressman Allen West, an outspoken tea-party favorite whose district was pushed into largely new territory by redistricting, is claiming that massive voter irregularities are robbing him of his seat...

THOMAS SOWELL Killing the goose that lays the golden egg is one of those old fairy tales for children which has a heavy message that a lot of adults should listen to. The labor unions which have driven the makers of Twinkies into bankruptcy, potentially destroying 18,500 jobs, could have learned a lot from that old children's fairy tale... (more)

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY The day of reckoning is here. For over 30 years, the United States government and the institutions that drive public opinion have made like Susan Rice when it comes to the ideological threat that Islamic supremacists pose to freedom, fabricating reasons to remain in denial. Thus inured, the American people have elected, and now reelected, a president notoriously fond of America-bashing Islamists... (more)

DAILY CALLER Republican Rep. Steve King predicted that President Barack Obama will get what he wants out of the fiscal cliff negotiations because he is willing to go over the cliff, and that Republicans would have to be willing to call his bluff to have any leverage... (more)

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY Leaders in the Republicans' K Street wing, it seems, don't know whether to embrace the Tea Party wing or go to war against it. The GOP establishment has made two peace offerings to the rebels within its ranks. First, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, facing a potential primary challenge, chose a new campaign manager...

MICHELLE MALKIN Exactly two years ago this week, the Obama administration announced it had issued more than 100 waivers en masse to a select group of companies, unions and other health insurance providers seeking relief from the onerous federal health care law. The Obamacare waiver winner's club now totals 2,000. Where are they now?... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES The line of those waiting at the courthouse itching for a chance to derail Obamacare just got longer. So far, the Catholic Church and 30 of the nation's governors have taken the lead to battle against the health care law's requirement that states establish health insurance exchanges and that abortion coverage be subsidized. Now private companies are enlisting in the fight... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY The 2012 election was an open door for the GOP to lead America back to its roots in faith and morality, and the Republicans were AWOL, says Dr. James Dobson, founder of Family Talk and a brand new political outreach arm called Family Talk Action. "I waited throughout the campaign for Mitt Romney to declare himself, to at least identify with the moral issues that are before us... (more)

ANITA STAVER Tune in for the latest episode of As the Military World Turns...In a scandalous story with more twists and turns than the road to Hana, we see a married CIA director who resigned after an affair with his Harvard-educated biographer, discovered because of her harassing emails targeting a doctor's wife who was the CIA director's "close friend"...

FOX NEWS Rancher Kevin Kester works dawn to dusk, drives a 12-year-old pick-up truck and earns less than a typical bureaucrat in Washington D.C., yet the federal government considers him rich enough to pay the estate tax -- also known as the "death tax"... (more)

ALAN KEYES Among those still enthralled by the GOP, I guess that a majority would say they still respect America's Revolutionary founders. And among those who do, some would even profess to adhere to the principles of the Revolution the founders made... (more)

FRED HUTCHISON, RA ANALYST The fight between the right-to-life movement and the right-to-die camp has all the ferocity and bitterness of two opposing orthodoxies. "Orthodox" is a word of Greek origin which literally means "right opinion." If there is such a thing as truth, there can be a body of right opinion... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH It was almost laughable on Election Night when the analysts began explaining why Mitt Romney lost. It was because of his extreme position on border security. It was because Republicans picked candidates that were too extreme. It was because Republicans denied manmade, catastrophic "climate change" was real... (more)

Petraeus, formerly the commander of U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, the author of the current Army field manual, Princeton Ph.D. and, until last week, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, was forced to resign from the CIA to silence him is far stronger than is the version of events that the Obama administration has given us...
