J.C. WATTS Four years ago, the State Department issued permits authorizing the construction of an oil pipeline that would cross our northern border on its way from Alberta, Canada, down to oil refineries in Texas. Along the way, this pipeline would snake through more than a half-dozen states, creating jobs and contributing to local tax bases. In fact, the pipeline would create tens of thousands of good-paying jobs, which are badly needed during this economic rut... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER The Marine Corps Times previews its cover story about anti-Obama Marines at their 'Battle Rattle' blog. According to the article, of the 792 active-duty troops and mobilized reservists who responded to this year's Military Times Poll, 44 percent said that they disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job as commander in chief...

WORLDNETDAILY Did the parents of former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers help finance Barack Obama's Harvard education? Did Ayers' mother believe Obama was a foreign student? And was the young Obama convinced at the time -- long before he even entered politics -- that he was going to become president of the United States?... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH This was the day the media died -- officially. The most well-read news story anywhere got no mention on Fox News, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, the New York Times or any other so-called "mainstream" news outlet -- a laughable adjective. The story wasn't overlooked. It was deliberately spiked. The media knew it was coming. They didn't want any part of it... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY Swedish officials are doubling down on homeschooling with a recently uncovered statement from the European nation's ambassador to the United States that there is no need -- ever -- for homeschooling... (more)

NEWSVINE The millions of dollars spent by Mitt Romney's allies on TV ads attacking his two main rivals have helped Romney pull ahead in the GOP presidential race. The resulting bitterness, however, is making it hard for him to lock down the nomination and end the party fighting that delights Democrats... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST This column — here, now, and forever — rejects any and all invitations for membership in a Denounce Club. That is...where we are pressured to denounce fellow pro-Americans, a classic divide-and-conquer scenario inscribed in the strategy bible of those who take a dim view of America and Americans in general...

THOMAS SOWELL Many people may be voting for Mitt Romney because of the view in some quarters that he is the inevitable Republican candidate for president of the United States, and the candidate with the best chance of beating Barack Obama, rather than because they actually prefer Romney to the other candidates...

DAILY CALLER In Puerto Rico, for the price of 20 delegates, Mitt Romney sold out his conservative principles. There is a long history of Congress requiring English to be the language of government and schools for territories seeking to be admitted to the Union -- e.g., Louisiana, Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma...

STEPHANIE HESSLER For the first time, President Obama's Justice Department has attempted to explain the administration's policy on targeted killings of U.S. citizens. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.'s speech earlier this month came five months after an American citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki, was killed in Yemen by a predator drone without any judicial review... (more)

DAVID LIMBAUGH President Barack Obama said, "The package we've put together" will "start bending the cost curve on healthcare" and "cut the deficit by a trillion dollars." Even a sympathetic Congressional Budget Office has finally put the nail in the coffin of that howler. At the time Obama made the claim, we all knew it was specious, and study after study came out showing just how fraudulent it was. There was the double counting on Medicare, the "Doc Fix" scam, and a host of others... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH Rush Limbaugh got it exactly right Friday, as he so often does. Where else did you hear about the fanatical Barack Obama disciple from Tennessee convicted of making death threats against Sheriff Joe Arpaio beside WND? Try to imagine if a Newt Gingrich supporter or a fan of Mitt Romney had made such a threat against any Democratic official in the United States -- even an unknown... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN This has got to be the bazooka of all Joe Biden blowhardisms. The nation's vice campaigner-in-chief went on the attack against Republicans this week, clad in full populist armor. "These guys don't have a sense of the average folks out there," said the Everyman. "They don't know what it means to be middle class." But who was his audience?... (more)

GARY BAUER Whether it's the "war on science" or the "war on labor unions," the left never tires of painting conservatives as domestic policy war mongers. Now liberals are revisiting another fictitious conservative war, against women. At the Women in the World Summit in New York last week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blasted tyrants across the globe... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES If the pope called for the destruction of all the mosques in Europe, the uproar would be cataclysmic. Pundits would lambaste the church, the White House would rush out a statement of deep concern, and rioters in the Middle East would kill each other in their grief. But when the most influential leader in the Muslim world issues a fatwa to destroy Christian churches, the silence is deafening... (more)

NEWSMAX The Council for National Policy, a publicity-shy conservative group, is working hard to support Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum. The group raised $1.8 million for the former Pennsylvania senator's campaign and the super PAC supporting him at its meeting last weekend, Politico reports... (more)

EMILY MILLER The conventional wisdom in Washington is that nothing significant will be done until after the November election. As the country racks up debt at a pace faster than ever in history, a few lawmakers refuse to just sit back, avoiding controversy. They want to tackle the biggest driver of red ink, Medicare, and do it this year... (more)

REP. STEVE KING AND SEN. JIM DEMINT Every election, voters are told that this election is the most important of our lifetimes. In most elections, it's not really true. In 2012, though, it probably is true, for one reason: Obamacare... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH The media and Republican political establishment have sold the lie that Mitt Romney is the GOP's best hope for beating Barack Obama in November. Truthfully, Romney doesn't stand a chance of defeating Obama. In fact, he's the only Republican candidate for president who will practically ensure Obama's re-election... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN CNN's Soledad O'Brien isn't used to criticism. In the world of media elites, she's a beloved figure and an award-winning news anchor. But last week, she revealed her true, decidedly non-neutral colors. And she's not happy about the hoi polloi questioning her hallowed journalistic objectivity... (more)

JOHN STOSSEL "If you have 10,000 regulations," Winston Churchill said, "you destroy all respect for law." He was right. But Churchill never imagined a government that would add 10,000 year after year. That's what we have in America. We have 160,000 pages of rules from the feds alone... (more)
