JANICE SHAW CROUSE With the recent conclusion of the World Congress of Families VII in Sydney, Australia, the international pro-life, pro-marriage and pro-family movement is coming of age as an international counterweight to the family-hostile United Nations... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES The Associated Press, the New York Times and CNN have turned their backs on one of President Obama's top Cabinet officials. It's no surprise to conservatives, but the true meaning of Chicago-style politics is dawning on the news outlets that have refused to participate in an off-the-record chat regarding press freedom with Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. It's a remarkable turning point for an administration that, until now, has enjoyed a smooth ride.... (more)

STANLEY KURTZ Today's Washington Post has a front-page above-the-fold article on the battle that's revitalizing the Tea Party: blocking the Common Core, the Obama administration's push for a de facto national education system. The IRS scandal has surely helped to energize the Tea Party, but it's the fight against Common Core that's lent the movement new purpose and substance.... (more)

MARK STEYN We have the president of the United States' word as a gentleman that he knew nothing about the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of his enemies until he "learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this."... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT It's pretty clear that the Internal Revenue Service acted illegally in its abuse of tea parties and other conservative groups and individuals since 2009. Why else would Lois G. Lerner, director of the IRS's division of exempt organizations, plead the Fifth before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee?... (more)

NEWSMAX The former head of the embattled Internal Revenue Service visited the White House at least 157 times since President Barack Obama first took office in 2009 -- more times than any other Cabinet member, an analysis of visitor logs shows.... (more)


June 1, 2013
NEWSMAX At the same time IRS investigators were targeting tea party groups and other conservative organizations, the agency also was targeting the already established Freedom's Watch organization, and its largest donors, according to former president and CEO Bradley Blakeman.... (more)

ANDREW STILES It has all the familiar symptoms of an Obama scandal: executive overreach, a bullying bureaucracy, and a reckless disregard for the rule of law. But most Republicans aren't interested. At least, not any more.... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN The school year may be over for most American students, but parents must remain as vigilant as ever when it comes to protecting their children's privacy. Look no further than the shocking, invasive conduct of the Polk County, Fla., educational district last week. It's a surveillance-state sign of the times.... (more)

NEWSMAX Mitt Romney expressed "extraordinary disappointment" Friday with how little President Barack Obama has achieved so far in his second term, and says he plans to rejoin the political dialogue in the coming months to "help shape national priorities."... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY The effort to recall "America's toughest sheriff," Maricopa County, Arizona's Joe Arpaio, fell short of the 355,000 voter signatures needed by yesterday afternoon.... (more)

ALAN KEYES [From time to time when I reply to a reader's comment on one of the articles offered here, the exchange makes a point that may be of interest to all my readers. This one was occasioned by Dr. Scott Lively's essay "Satan wins back the scouts."]... (more)

R.T. NEARY Observing the sorrow of a grandchild after his cherished stuffed animal got an unintended ride to the local landfill soon led me to observe an event that allowed for a true grasp of his disappointment... (more)

FRED HUTCHISON, RA ANALYST This essay asks two questions: Are Europeans in the throes of passive cultural and political suicide as they ignore the threat of fanatical Muslims in their communities? And if so, have the leaders of the Democratic Party in America joined the Europeans in sleepwalking toward a precipice?... (more)

GINA MILLER Surely the national leadership members of the Boy Scouts of America didn't believe this ungodly, profoundly stupid vote to allow openly homosexual boys to be scouts would somehow appease the tools of the radical homosexual movement. Surely these leaders who voted against all common sense and against the very principles their organization professes didn't imagine that the homosexual alphabet soup militia would be happy with the vote and just let things be...

RICHARD D. MORALES It is with great sadness and disappointment I hereby tender my resignation from Troop 501 and the Boy Scout organization. The vote to allow open and avowed homosexuality into Scouting will transform it into an unprincipled and risky proposition for parents -- a social experiment, I may add. Sadly, the Boy Scouts' legacy of producing great leaders has become yet another casualty of moral and corporate-driven leaders... (more)

JOHN FUND The scandals swirling around the Obama administration have many journalists scratching their heads as to how "hope and change" seem to have been supplanted by "arrogance and fear." Perhaps it's time they revisit one of their original premises about Barack Obama: that he wasn't influenced by the Chicago Daley machine. You know: the machine that boosted his career and whose proteges -- including Valerie Jarrett, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, and his wife, Michelle -- he brought to Washington with him... (more)


May 30, 2013
WASHINGTON TIMES More than two dozen conservative groups sued the IRS, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Wednesday accusing them of slow-walking approval of the groups' tax-exempt status and, in some cases, for disclosing private information... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH It's not just the bungling in Benghazi. Barack Obama's administration has bungled all Middle East policy. The problem is that there are no good policy options in the Middle East -- except for support of Israel. And that's the one option the Obama administration will never consider... (more)


May 30, 2013
WORLDNETDAILY A Library of Congress report that received almost no media attention detailed -- one month before the deadly Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi -- how al-Qaida established a major base of operations in Libya in the aftermath of the U.S.-NATO campaign that deposed Muammar Gadhafi and his secular regime...

PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY The bill created in secret by the Gang of Eight is an outrageous betrayal of American workers, both high-skilled and low-skilled. Claiming it is bipartisan, the drafters were Democrats and globalist Republicans... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY The Obama administration-friendly MSNBC is taking a stunning ratings crash dive -- averaging a dismal 175,000 viewers in the adults 25-54 demographic. The network is struggling with double-digit drops from last May, with viewership down approximately 20 percent. It had only 539,000 viewers in primetime... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH It gives me little comfort to say, "See, I told you so." Starting in 2008, there were many voices warning what an administration headed by a radical, Chicago-style gangster like Barack Obama would mean for America. But none of those voices were as relentless and prolific as WND... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so is nullification -- the idea that states can limit the enforcement of federal laws within their borders. Supporters of nullification see it as a necessary and effective tool to protect states and citizens from the ever-growing power of the federal government... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY On the heels of a recent poll that said 29 percent of registered voters believe an "armed revolution" may be needed in America to restore liberties, a second poll said Americans already have figured out a solution -- reject federal laws that are unconstitutional... (more)
