THE TENNESSEAN The party of Cordell Hull, Estes Kefauver and Al Gore Sr. and Jr. won't have a standard-bearer -- or at least not one it can stomach -- in Tennessee's next U.S. Senate race. Less than 24 hours after a man espousing conservative and libertarian views surprised the state's political scene by winning the Democratic nomination, the Tennessee Democratic Party disavowed him, saying he's part of an anti-gay hate group...

ONE NEWS NOW With Target's new wedding registry ad featuring a male couple, one proponent of natural marriage says the retailer is apparently promoting homosexual marriage.

ABC NEWS Last summer, Laura, a young woman originally from the suburbs of Salt Lake City, became the first among her siblings to get married. This summer, she became a mother. Getting married and having a child can be a heady time for anyone, but unlike most young married mothers, Laura, 19, knows that someday soon she could be in for yet another major life change: her husband could marry another wife...

WASHINGTON TIMES The Tea Party hasn't dominated the headlines in quite some time. Following its ballot-box success in 2010, the loosely organized small-government movement has taken a breather.

JOSEPH FARAH The New York Times has discovered yet another way to cheerlead the "authenticity" of the paper's favorite presidential candidate -- not just in this election, but perhaps in any election. The "newspaper of record" managed to develop a comprehensive story that speculates Barack Obama, who claims, without substantiation, to be the son of a white mother and a Kenyan visiting student, has roots in slavery -- like so many other African-Americans...

REUTERS U.S. weather has been lousy this year, with droughts, heat and killer storms. But a solar superstorm could be far worse.

FRED HUTCHISON, RA ANALYST The Conservative movement has many intellectual streams. Some of the names that readily come to mind are Traditionalist, Idealist, Realist, Conservationist, Christian Right, Natural Law, Agrarian, Classicist, Tory, Libertarian, Classical Liberal, and Neocon. Conservatives can win elections only when there is a coalition of all or most of the streams working together... (more)

STANLEY KURTZ President Obama is not a fan of America's suburbs. Indeed, he intends to abolish them. With suburban voters set to be the swing constituency of the 2012 election, the administration's plans for this segment of the electorate deserve scrutiny. Obama is a longtime supporter of "regionalism," the idea that the suburbs should be folded into the cities, merging schools, housing, transportation, and above all taxation... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER Congressmen in both parties want you to pay more taxes on your online purchases, and once again, big business is lobbying for bigger government, which would hurt Mom and Pop. Online sales taxes have been a battlefield for lobbying titans for years, pitting Walmart and the rest of the brick-and-mortar retail lobby against Amazon and other online retailers... (more)

SEN. JIM DEMINT Our nation was born from the idea of "no taxation without representation"--that citizens should not be taxed by governments in which they have no political voice. Yet now lawmakers in Washington want to overturn that bedrock principle in order to extract more revenues from American consumers... (more)

ASSOCIATED PRESS Ted Cruz's Senate primary victory in Texas will provide a boost for tea party-backed, no-compromise conservatives in Congress. His all-but-sure win in November will increase the number of tea party-aligned senators to six, and as many as seven more could win election... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH Suppose someone who truly hated America got elected president -- using deception, fraud and, as extremist radicals like him would put it, "by any means necessary." What would such a person do to bring America, the land of liberty, to its knees? One of the things he would do would be to nationalize 17 percent of the private sector in one fell swoop by mandating citizens to participate in a government-run health-care system... (more)

PATRICK GARRY, RA ANALYST The term "big government" gets volleyed continually over the net of political dialogue. It generally relates to debates over the public budget and deficit, but it involves much more. It has become the defining issue distinguishing the two parties and the two political ideologies. Unfortunately, the conservative case against big government all too often focuses only on the monetary aspect... (more)
