TONY PERKINS — The rush by congressional Democrats to overturn "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) - despite the opposition of the Army, Air Force and Marine Corps service chiefs - threatens its advocates with a political backlash from a public that is just beginning to focus on this issue... (more)

ASSOCIATED PRESS — The Senate moved Thursday to delay a politically charged showdown vote on legislation carving out a path to legal status for foreign-born youngsters brought to this country illegally, putting off but probably not preventing the measure's demise... (more)

BLOOMBERG — Representative Ron Paul, Texas Republican and author of "End the Fed," will take control of the House subcommittee that oversees the Federal Reserve. House Financial Services chairman-elect Spencer Bachus, an Alabama Republican, selected Paul, 75, to lead the panel's domestic monetary policy subcommittee when their party takes the House majority next month, the committee chairman said today...

JOSEPH FARAH — I think it was the always insightful James Carville who made famous the phrase, "It's the economy, stupid," during the 1992 presidential election. It shouldn't surprise that a liberal Democrat, with no discernible spiritual or moral bearings whatsoever, would make such a well-remembered plea to sheer materialism and political pragmatism...

WASHINGTON POST — A majority of senators on a key committee in Maryland now favor legalizing same-sex marriage, making it increasingly likely that the state will join five others and the District in allowing such unions... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST — Few outrages are so infuriating as a mainstream media blackout of relevant facts that pose threats to its agenda. The most obvious Pravda-style see-no-evil going on right now is the refusal to use terms such as "Islamofascism," "radical Islam," "Islamist," or even "War on Terror," lest the public become aware of "politically incorrect" facts about the forces behind terror threats, suicide bombings, and mass murder plots...

REUTERS — The House of Representatives approved a controversial measure Wednesday providing a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants who came to the United States before age 16. The "Dream Act" passed by 216-198 after sometimes heated debate. The Senate is scheduled to vote Thursday on whether to begin debate on a slightly different version of the bill... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — Defeating one Arizona law cracking down on illegal aliens wouldn't invalidate all of Arizona laws against illegals. Some are treating yesterday's U.S. Supreme Court arguments in the case of Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting as stand-ins for the battle over Arizona's recent law (S.B. 1070) letting local police detain illegals... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — Congressional Democrats led by outgoing Speaker Nancy Pelosi are so intent on expanding government that they deny the Constitution imposes any limits on their power. Rep. Scott Garrett, New Jersey Republican, insists federal lawmakers be blocked from exceeding its authority... (more)

JAMES GATTUSO — Increasingly, American families find they have a permanent and rather demanding house guest: Uncle Sam. Federal regulators are making their presence felt more and more in our daily lives. As a result of new efficiency standards on kitchen ovens, some of our favorite recipes just don't turn out the same any more. Incandescent light bulbs will soon be a thing of the past... (more)

JOHN HAYWARD — Everyone has had a chance to sleep on the deal to extend Bush tax rates, announced last night by President Obama and congressional Republicans. Congressional Democrats were largely irrelevant to the process, and did not sleep well... (more)

DICK MORRIS — Republicans gnashed their teeth in frustration as the national tide of GOP resurgence washed up against the massive Democratic fortresses in Nevada, Washington state, Colorado and California. When they neither toppled nor faltered, most conservatives resigned themselves to a divided Congress with the Republican House and the Democratic Senate forever at war... (more)

ANN COULTER — The Pentagon's poll on "don't ask, don't tell" is beyond idiotic. Instead of asking whether the troops support repeal of DADT, the Pentagon asked only if they can learn to play nice with the gays. Even more absurdly, the Pentagon polled all military "personnel" -- and their spouses!... (more)

ASSOCIATED PRESS — WikiLeaks published a new set of cables Wednesday, andthe secret-spilling website promised in a defiant message posted online that the leaks would keep on flowing despite the arrest and jailing of its founder on sex allegations... (more)

WALTER E. WILLIAMS — Immorality in government lies at the heart of our nation's problems. Deficits, debt and runaway government are merely symptoms. What's moral and immoral conduct can be complicated, but needlessly so. I keep things simple and you tell me where I go wrong... (more)

SHER ZIEVE — "Cap and trade was just one way of skinning the cat -- it was not the only way. I'm going to be looking for other means to address this problem." The preceding was Barack Hussein Obama's comment regarding the defeat of his "green agenda" (specifically Cap & Trade/Tax) from the White House the day after the 2010 midterm elections... (more)

SOUTH COAST TODAY — Three of David Danis' favorite activities are watching television, painting and helping those in need. One TV program he watched a while ago helped pull it all together... (more)

ASSOCIATED PRESS — Joe Miller is fighting as though Alaska's Senate race has yet to occur. He has maintained a presence on TV, conservative radio and the Internet, casting himself as a righteous reformer in the face of an out-of-control establishment. He is still raising money and speaking out against his opponent... (more)

FRANK J. GAFFNEY JR. — Even for a man known for his arrogance, President Obama's treatment of the Senate in connection with the New START Treaty is astounding. His demand that senators approve this defective accord during the few days remaining in the lame-duck session amounts to contempt of Congress. It must not be tolerated, let alone rewarded... (more)

POLITICO — George W. Bush's job approval rating as president has spiked to 47 percent, according to a Gallup poll released Monday. That's 1 point higher than President Barack Obama's job approval rating in a poll taken the same week... (more)

NEWSREAL — Today is the day that WikiLeaks is going to get a taste of its own medicine. Thanks to an early participant in WikiLeaks' operations dating back to 2006 and the beginning of 2007, who became so disgruntled with its leader's outsized ego, lies and deceitful methods that he quit, we have a treasure trove of internal Wikileaks e-mails...

ASSOCIATED PRESS — Experts on eyewitness identification, confessions and forensic evidence are among those expected to testify at an unusual hearing on the constitutionality of the death penalty that starts Monday in the Texas county that has sent more convicts to death row than any other...

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid remind one of the burglars who hear the footsteps of the house owners approaching the front door, but just can't resist grabbing more fistfuls of silverware before climbing out the back window and heading for the get-away car...
