NAT HENTOFF With Egypt and other challenges occupying him, the president and other pro-abortion forces may soon have to deal with another problem: the rising results of a landmark law passed by the Nebraska legislature (44-5) and signed into law by Gov.

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST With parts of the Middle East in flames (as I write), it is worrisome to contemplate the possibility that all the rioting in Egypt (however motivated by innocents) may end up as a reprise of Iran/1979.

ROB SCHWARZWALDER The clear and inherent constraints of the Constitution would, if applied with intellectual honesty, put an end to the expansionist vision of the federal government that is essential to the Left's program of statism. The Left cannot abide applying the Constitution as it is written because this would upend its multipronged efforts to reshape American government and society at large... (more)

NEWSMAX Congressional investigators are demanding to know what criteria the Obama administration used to grant 733 healthcare-reform waivers on insurance plans covering more than 2 million Americans.

ROBERT KNIGHT Socialism - the abolishment of private property - sometimes advances at the point of a gun. At other times, it advances by co-opting the language of freedom.
