L. BRENT BOZELL III America was founded on the principle of representative democracy: the government would make policy based on the consent of the governed. Liberal elitists have grown increasingly impatient with this unenlightened system, and more and more, they are relying on judicial activists to remake society in their desired image... (more)

ERICK ERICKSON Thank God that Ronald Reagan put his principles ahead of politics. As regular readers know, I'm not fully enamored by Dick Morris, but one of the best quotes on polling I've ever heard comes from Dick Morris... (more)

CHRISTIAN POST An Oklahoma amendment that bans state judges from consulting Islamic law has been blocked from going into effect. Judge Vicky Miles-Lagrange issued a preliminary injunction on Monday, ruling that the amendment "fosters an excessive government entanglement with religion"... (more)

DICK MORRIS The WikiLeaks documents show that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has, as Voltaire said about the Bourbon kings of France, learned nothing and forgotten nothing. Her request that American diplomats at foreign postings and the United Nations gather personal data about their foreign counterparts is eerily reminiscent of her use of private detectives to unearth negative information on those who were politically inconvenient during the husband's campaigns for president and his White House tenure...

JOHN HAYWARD The expected drop of classified documents from WikiLeaks occurred Sunday afternoon, producing stories in the New York Times and several foreign newspapers. The leaked documents include both national security matters and sensitive diplomatic information... (more)

DENNIS PRAGER By now, most people (with the exception of many psychotherapists) recognize that the self-esteem movement officially launched by California in 1986 has been at best silly, and at worst injurious to society, despite whatever small benefit it may have had to some individuals... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., calls the so-called WikiLeaks scandal "worse than a military attack." If that's true, it has given us an idea of how Barack Obama's administration might respond in the event of an actual military attack. Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a criminal investigation... (more)

JASON MATTERA Bobby Jindal wasted no time assessing this administration's approach to fighting terrorism, mocking Obama's strategy as a "treatise on social justice." In part two of his exclusive interview with HUMAN EVENTS, the Louisiana Governor argued that Obama's inability to talk honestly about radical Islam stems from the President's erroneous perception of why the threat even exists...

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST There is a reason we call the current dead men and women walking on Capitol Hill "lame ducks." They have been rejected, discredited, disavowed, and repudiated by their betters -- the voters... (more)

ABC NEWS In a lame-duck session that will be anything but lame, the ties that bind the Democratic Party will be tested anew. The week's big focus will be on the bipartisan summit to be held Tuesday at the White House -- a key indicator of how the president plans to govern under the new reality imposed by voters in the midterm elections...

ASSOCIATED PRESS Although fixing the economy is the top priority, Republicans who won greater control of state governments in this month's election are considering how to pursue action on a range of social issues, including abortion, gun rights and even divorce laws... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES With President Obama blaming his party's midterm losses, at least in part, on his failure to change the way Washington works, transparency advocates say now is the time for him to follow through on a slew of unfulfilled pledges he made during the 2008 campaign... (more)

KATIE TARAN The American people sent a message to Washington, D.C., two weeks ago, and more than 200 participants descended on Santa Barbara, California from November 12 to 13 to learn how to send the same message to their professors and the Obama administration... (more)

CHUCK COLSON If you're like me, you typically associate national security with diplomacy, intelligence, and, of course, the military. That's why I was intrigued by a recent conference at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University. The conference was called "Religious Freedom and National Security Policy"... (more)

HAROLD WITKOV Once upon a time, there lived a vain Emperor. Because he was a man of little substance, he knew he had to project a grand image to fool his subjects. Consequently, he was forever talking with raised chin, dressing in elegant clothes, and just acting pompously in general... (more)

THE HILL The investigative arm of the Homeland Security Department appears to be shutting down websites that facilitate copyright infringement. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has seized dozens of domain names over the past few days, according to TorrentFreak.... (more)

ROGER HEDGECOCK Just in time to avoid the traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner, students at the University of Texas, Austin, staged a hunger strike to support Congressional approval of the DREAM Act. Student activists want you to believe that they are taking a stand for "fairness" and "justice," but the DREAM Act is a turkey designed to amnesty most illegals and force you to subsidize their U.S. college education...

November 27, 2010
WASHINGTON TIMES Today, U.N. negotiators will begin two weeks of meetings in Cancun, Mexico, looking for a way to move the climate action agenda forward, impose global carbon emissions caps and compel countries to pay a series of new international taxes to underwrite environmental programs. Maybe they'll get what they want when hell freezes over... (more)

THE HILL A decision this week by a federal judge in Ohio marks at least the third time a legal challenge to Democrats' healthcare law has been allowed to go forward, underscoring the extent to which the legal push for repeal is gaining momentum... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Whew. Liberals are breathing a sigh of relief after the Associated Press released a poll this past week showing that Tea Partiers are out of step with the rest of America. Doctrinaire liberal: "We just knew those people were wacko. Now we have proof"... (more)

REP. DARRELL ISSA In his January 1989 farewell address to the nation, President Reagan warned, "Man is not free unless government is limited. ... There's a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts." Earlier this month, we saw countless Americans heed Mr. Reagan's warning, turning out in droves to cast their vote in defense of liberty... (more)

PEGGY NOONAN A reporter covering the president's trip to Indiana this week said Mr. Obama was visiting the heartland in part to get out of the presidential bubble. I'm sure this was true. Presidents always get to the point where they want to escape Washington, and their lives, and their jobs. But they never can... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY It isn't only happening in airports. American citizens have been subjected to potentially dangerous, super-sensitive body scanners in train stations, sports arenas, and even while they're driving down public streets -- and images of their virtually nude bodies allegedly may be stored on computer hard drives... (more)


November 26, 2010
WORLDNETDAILY Want to know how the lame ducks in Congress plan to "cut" federal spending -- which seemed to be a dominating theme of the 2010 elections? They're proposing a plan to take upwards of $44 billion a year from taxpayers and hand it over to illegal aliens who are in the United States so they can go to college... (more)

DEROY MURDOCK As Americans fly this Thanksgiving holiday, critics of new security measures are arriving at airports in kilts. Subsequent pat downs will be enhanced, indeed. Pre-flight screening has moved from safety to comedy. Before it devolves into tragedy, officials should start profiling terrorists... (more)
