GALLUP Political ideology in the U.S. held steady in 2011, with 40% of Americans continuing to describe their views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal. This marks the third straight year that conservatives have outnumbered moderates, after more than a decade in which moderates mainly tied or outnumbered conservatives... (more)

NEWSMAX Mitt Romney probably will get to the Republican National Convention without a majority of delegates, former New Hampshire state Sen. Bob Clegg says. Speaking on Rasmussen Reports, Clegg said he would be "surprised" if the former Massachusetts governor has the party's presidential nomination wrapped up by Aug. 27, the first day of the convention in Tampa, Fla....

NEWSROOM AMERICA In New Hampshire, it was all Mitt Romney, all the time. In results that were wholly expected, Romney steamrolled his GOP rivals Tuesday in New Hampshire's first-in-the-country primary, winning by double digits over second-place finisher Ron Paul... (more)

STEPHEN KOKX Now that Rick Santorum has emerged as a viable alternative to Mitt Romney, he will have to face a media onslaught that very few candidates can handle. But this time, it's not just the liberal media he'll be up against; the libertarian right is making their opposition heard as well. In his "victory" speech in Iowa, Santorum stressed his middle class upbringing and the need for America to return to its moral principles... (more)

RICK SANTORUM For the past year, Mitt Romney has been trying to distance himself from his record on health care, most notably from his signature health-care-reform law in Massachusetts, commonly referred to as "Romneycare." Although the former Massachusetts governor would prefer to deny it, Romneycare shares many characteristics with Obamacare, the president's unpopular overhaul of the national health-care system, and over the past five years, Romneycare has proven to have many of the same fatal design flaws that Obamacare has...

MICHELLE MALKIN Michael Corleone said to "keep your friends close, but your enemies closer." But what, pray tell, do we do with our frenemies? This is the awful election-year quandary of movement conservatives. And everything you need to know about our heartache can be summed up in one image: 2008 presidential election loser John McCain​ and Mitt Romney​ together on the campaign trail... (more)

RICHARD VIGUERIE Everyone knows Mr. Potter, the mean banker in Jimmy Stewart's Christmas classic movie "It's a Wonderful Life." Mr. Potter enjoys foreclosing on hapless Depression-era homeowners and he particularly relishes the opportunity to unethically force good guy Jimmy Stewart out of business and send him to jail -- a fate Stewart avoids through the intervention of all the little people he has helped and the timely intersession of an angel named Clarence...

GOV. RICK PERRY This election -- including the Republican primary contest -- is about a fundamental question in American politics: We have an opportunity to decisively turn away from big government in Washington. Do we want to take it? Conservatives across the country are fed up with President Obama's Washington approach to governance. Massive, budget-busting, deficit spending (except on defense, where he proposes cuts that are downright dangerous)... (more)

JIM LACEY In 2010, Adm. Mike Mullen, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, waded into a domestic political debate he would have been well advised to avoid. By declaring that "Our national debt is our biggest national-security threat," Admiral Mullen painted a bull's-eye on the Pentagon for every shortsighted budget-cutter in Washington to aim at...

WASHINGTON TIMES A panel of federal judges has ruled that states cannot protect their courts from jurists who base their decisions on international or Koranic law. America needs better judges. On Tuesday, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a federal district court order blocking implementation of an amendment to the Oklahoma constitution that sought to ban judges from using international or Muslim law as a basis for deciding cases...

EMILY MILLER The United States has hit the debt ceiling that was just recently raised to $15.2 trillion. Any day now, President Obama will formally ask for it to be hiked another $1.2 trillion. Uncle Sam is burning through cash so fast that the government's bills equal the total value of the goods and services produced by our economy... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES America's adventuresome spirit is not dead yet. President Obama, the naysayer in chief, may have grounded NASA's government-issued astronauts, but space entrepreneurs are making plans to tank up and take off on their own... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST There is no effort within the U.S. intelligence community -- as far as we know -- to find out how on earth 16 intelligence agencies bestowed an imprimatur upon a 2007 "estimate" that totally inaccurately declared that Iran had given up its pursuit of nuclear weapons. In November, we raised the question as to whether the flawed finding was the result of enemy influence within the CIA or other agency... (more)

NATIONAL REVIEW Just as the conservative movement finally has the first real chance since Ronald Reagan to see one of its own -- a "full-spectrum conservative," as Rick Santorum now calls himself, picking up the phrase from Rep. Steve King (R., Iowa) -- win the Republican presidential nomination, the purists emerge to say he's somehow not conservative enough... (more)

ARTHUR HERMAN You have to give President Obama credit. It takes serious gall to tell the American military to its face that you are putting it on the road to second-class status. That's exactly what our commander-in-chief did at the Pentagon yesterday, as he announced nearly half a trillion dollars in new spending cuts, after already chopping $480 billion during his first three years in office...

WASHINGTON EXAMINER Hard facts ought to prevail where American security is concerned. This applies equally whether the issue at hand is the geopolitical consequences of ill-advised defense cuts or the possibility that waste and fraud in military procurement might result in the deaths of American soldiers...

NEWSMAX Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry says he would send U.S. troops back to Iraq to make sure Iran didn't sweep into the country and take over. "We're going to see Iran, in my opinion, move back in at literally the speed of light. They're going to move back in, and all of the work we've done -- every young man that has lost his life in that country will have been for nothing... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH In July 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama vowed to create a "civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded" as the U.S. military. Apparently no one else in the national press found that promise newsworthy, because I was the first to call it to the attention of the public days later. Interestingly, the pledge had been stricken from transcripts of the speech handed out to media... (more)

DAVID LIMBAUGH President Obama is calling for dramatic defense cuts that could threaten our national survival while obstructing structural reforms to our entitlement programs that are essential for our national financial survival.
