DENNIS PRAGER — Last week, David Brooks of the New York Times wrote a column on an academic study concerning the nearly complete lack of a moral vocabulary among most American young people. Here are excerpts from Brooks's summary of the study of Americans aged 18 to 23... (more)

DR. MILTON R. WOLF — "We are witnessing the unmistakable collapse of an American presidency." I wrote those words in this space almost one year ago, and events continue to prove them true. It seems the president himself now recognizes this reality. Thus his desperate Hail Mary... (more)

WALTER WILLIAMS — During the recent GOP presidential debate, Texas Gov. Rick Perry said that Social Security is a "monstrous lie" and a "Ponzi scheme." More and more people are coming to see that Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, but is it a lie, as well? Let's look at it... (more)


September 21, 2011
ASSOCIATED PRESS — Rick Perry's Republican rivals are struggling to find a coherent, easy-to-grasp argument against the Texas governor, who tops GOP presidential polls despite attacks from all sides. In fact, it's the "all sides" nature that complicates the opposition's message. Republican voters who watched last week's presidential debate and its aftermath might wonder... (more)

POLITICO — The two top candidates in the GOP race, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, are telegraphing their punches on an issue that will likely be dominant at tomorrow's presidential debate - Social Security - which takes place in senior-heavy Florida... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY — A photo at the United Nations is turning into a diplomatic embarrassment for President Obama who was caught waving in the image, covering the face of another world leader... (more)

LOS ANGELES TIMES — An Islamic community center that fueled angry demonstrations because of its proximity to the site of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks has opened quietly in Lower Manhattan, drawing no protesters but bringing words of regret from the developer for not consulting with Sept. 11 survivors during its planning...

NATIONAL REVIEW — There is no such thing as a Palestinian state, and the United Nations can't conjure one into existence. That apparently won't stop the Palestinians from seeking recognition as a state in the Security Council this week. We should veto the Palestinian effort without hesitation... (more)

NEWSMAX — A majority of respondents to a Rasmussen Reports telephone survey said they would like to see a repeal of President Barack Obama's national healthcare law, which will go into effect in 2014. Of the 1,000 U.S. voters polled Sept. 16 and 17, 56 percent "somewhat" favored repeal, while 44 percent "strongly" favored it... (more)

ERIC RETZLAFF — Sometimes an idea's time has come, and sometimes not. Back in 1985, as a Schenectady Gazette staffer, I wrote a column contending that the quasi-monopoly misnamed "public education" wasn't really the best thing for education and for the country. This wasn't anywhere near a mainstream idea at the time. I argued, and still argue, on two counts... (more)


September 21, 2011
NEWSMAX — President Barack Obama's claim that he's not to blame for the country's faltering economy is falling on deaf ears. For the first time since Obama took office, a majority of Americans say he deserves a great deal or moderate amount of blame for the economy, a new a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds... (more)


September 21, 2011
DONALD LAMBRO — One thing should be clear about President Obama's preposterous, job-killing proposal to raise taxes on a comatose economy that's barely breathing, let alone fully functioning. It is dead on arrival on Capitol Hill... (more)

PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY — We are now beginning to grasp the definition and the scope of the words "new world order," an expression inserted into the U.S. political vocabulary by the first President Bush. He never defined it, leaving that task to his successors, and President Barack Obama is only too glad to expand its meaning... (more)


September 20, 2011
WORLDNETDAILY — Iconic singer, actor and WND columnist Pat Boone is unconvinced by President Obama's release of an image of a Hawaiian "Certificate of Life Birth" in support of his claim to be constitutionally eligible for the presidency. "I was in Kenya about a year and a half ago, and everyone there says, you know, your president was born here," he told an interviewer for the San Francisco Chronicle... (more)

HARTFORD COURANT — If a state Supreme Court judge approaches a journalist at a private dinner and says something newsworthy about an important decision, is the journalist free to publish the statement? I faced that situation at a dinner honoring the Connecticut Supreme Court at the New Haven Lawn Club on May 11, 2010... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST — The unveiling of Martin Luther King's memorial -- now set for October 16 -- brings to mind all the controversies surrounding his crusade, as well as the general political upheaval that made 1968 the pivotal turning point of the late -- and perhaps the entire -- 20th century... (more)

GARY BAUER — If last week's special election in New York exposed President Obama's "Jewish problem," then this week's session of the United Nations General Assembly will expose how unserious he is about solving it... (more)


September 19, 2011
DAVID LIMBAUGH — President Obama's official re-election campaign has set up a website ostensibly to defend him against false attacks, but its obvious purpose is to smear Republicans and propagandize. What could be more shameless?... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH — Lots of folks are still wondering whether Sarah Palin is going to jump into the 2012 Republican presidential campaign. But if she really wants to make history, I have a bigger and better idea for her. First of all, let's explore her options... (more)

ASSOCIATED PRESS — The Pentagon says the military is adequately prepared for the official lifting Tuesday of the legal ban on gays serving openly. Press secretary George Little said Monday that the ban will end at one minute after midnight. At that time, revised Defense Department regulations will take effect, to reflect the new law that will allow gays to serve openly... (more)

STEVE CHAPMAN — When President Reagan ran for re-election in 1984, his slogan was "Morning in America." For President Obama in 2011, it's more like midnight in a coal mine. The sputtering economy is about to stall out, unemployment is high, his jobs program may not pass, foreclosures are rampant, and the poor guy can't even sneak a cigarette... (more)

NEWSMAX — The Republican Party is in a fight to the death with the tea party, and only one of them will be left standing at the end of it, TV host Glenn Beck tells Newsmax.TV in an exclusive interview. "Either the tea party will eat the Republicans or vice versa," he said. "The Republicans make me nervous, quite honestly"... (more)

LARRY KLAYMAN — I like Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. He is articulate, and, while not a determinant factor, he speaks English like an American. Indeed, he grew up in large part in Cheltenham, a Philadelphia suburb where my cousins used to live. The ability to articulate his thoughts in "our native tongue," makes him a great advocate if not salesman for his beloved nation, Israel... (more)

NEWSMAX — Ford is capitalizing on its decision to reject government bailout money in its latest advertising campaign. The company, the only one of Detroit's "Big Three" to refuse the cash, puts owners in front of a mock press conference where they are peppered with questions as to why they bought a Ford... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT — The Constitution of the United States, whose adoption we celebrate every Sept. 17, clearly lists the powers of each branch of the national government. Let's take a look at what Barack Obama, like any president, is empowered to do and see if it squares with his actions. In Article II, Section 1, he is sworn to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States"... (more)
