LARRY ELDER — For the past 50 years, the Democrats -- and many Republicans who should know better -- have been wrong about virtually every major domestic policy issue. Let's review some of them: Taxes. The bipartisan extension of the Bush tax cuts represents the latest triumph over the "soak the rich because trickledown doesn't work" leftists... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — Sen. Jim DeMint, R-SC, says Federal Communications Commission should be renamed the "Fabricating a Crisis Commission," following a vote by the panel's three Democrats to approve proposed rules that amount to a hostile takeover of the Internet by a government agency acting illegally...

STANLEY KURTZ — "Is the president still a Marxist if he cuts taxes?" That's the question posed by Slate's David Weigel in his critical review of my new book, Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism. I'll answer with a question of my own: Is Lawrence O'Donnell still a socialist? O'Donnell confessed his socialism last month in the course of arguing that, in the face of electoral pressure, intelligent radicalism puts on a moderate face... (more)

RICH LOWRY — Gen. George Washington's army retreated from New York in ignominy in November 1776. As it moved through New Jersey, Lt. James Monroe, the future president, stood by the road and counted the troops: 3,000 left from an original force of 30,000... (more)

MICHAEL BARONE — For those of us who are demographic buffs, Christmas came four days early this year when Census Bureau director Robert Groves announced yesterday the first results of the 2010 Census and the reapportionment of House seats (and thus, electoral votes) among the states... (more)

REUTERS — Republicans poised to take power in Congress are planning a rapid attack against a climate change initiative the Obama administration wants to launch on Jan. 2, according to members of the Senate and House... (more)


December 22, 2010
ASSOCIATED PRESS — Alaska Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld a lower court decision in the disputed U.S. Senate race, saying the state correctly counted write-in votes for Sen. Lisa Murkowski. It is now up to Republican Joe Miller to decide if the election is finally over... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN — When bureaucrats talk about increasing our "access" to X, Y, or Z, what they're really talking about is increasing their control over our lives. As it is with the government health-care takeover, so it is with the newly approved government plan to "increase" Internet "access." Call it Webcare... (more)

TERENCE P. JEFFREY — When the Obama administration first went to the Supreme Court in March 2009 to explain its understanding of the First Amendment, Deputy Solicitor General Malcolm Stewart said the administration believed the government could prohibit a corporation from bouncing a book off a satellite into someone's Kindle if that communication took place within 30 days of a primary or 60 days of a general election and if the book included words advocating the election or defeat of a candidate for federal office...

WORLDNETDAILY — At the height of her campaigning for President Obama's plan to nationalize health-care decision-making, outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi famously quipped, "Are you serious? Are you serious?" when asked about its constitutionality... (more)

ANN COULTER — It's the Christmas season, so godless liberals are citing the Bible to demand the redistribution of income by government force. Didn't Jesus say, "Blessed are the Health and Human Services bureaucrats, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven"? Liberals are always indignantly accusing conservatives of claiming God is on our side... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT — Once again, as in 2008, Sen. John McCain has led conservatives over a cliff. Both defeats were a result of a conscious decision to unilaterally disarm morally and allow spurious claims to go unchallenged... (more)


December 21, 2010
DICK MORRIS — The Democratic Congress is trying to pull a fast one. They are using their lame duck majority -- explicitly rejected by the voters of America -- to compromise our national security by ratifying the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty. The treaty limits the U.S. missile defenses and the preamble suggests that we would not engage in any new military technologies to thwart nuclear weapons... (more)


December 21, 2010
WORLDNETDAILY — America's military isn't going 'gay' quite yet. While President Obama plans this week to sign the repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy banning open homosexuality in the military, the policy must remain in force until the president, the secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff can certify that the change will not impair combat readiness...

JOSEPH FARAH — It's a story as old as time. An innocent, principled man stands up for truth, something bigger than his own self-interest, and he loses everything the world has to offer as a result -- his approximately $2 million military pension, his family for the next several years, his certain promotion to full-bird colonel, his honorable discharge, even his freedom...

NEWSMAX — For the first time since Democrats in Congress passed the healthcare bill in March, a majority of U.S. voters believe the measure is likely to be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52 percent of likely voters think it is at least somewhat likely that the healthcare plan will be repealed. Thirty-three percent view repeal as unlikely... (more)

JEFF JACOBY — Q: When it comes to a government overhaul of health care, what is the difference between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney? A: Obama was against an individual insurance mandate before he was for it. Romney was for the mandate before he was against it... (more)


December 20, 2010
GEORGE WILL — As the new political group No Labels convened in Manhattan, a judge was issuing a decision that illustrated why the group's premise is preposterous and its pretense is cloying. The premise, obscured by gaseous rhetoric, is that political heat is inherently disproportionate. The complacent pretense is that it is virtuous to transcend the vice of partisanship... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST — The rejected, tone-deaf leftists in Washington, clinging to their last hours of congressional power, have attempted (with mixed results) to do everything possible to strike back at the voters who dared to hand them pink slips last month at the polls... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — Responding to the federal repeal of the military policy banning open gays from serving in the armed forces, a state lawmaker in Virginia plans to fight back with legislation that bars "active homosexuals" from serving in the Virginia National Guard... (more)

ROBERT M. MCDOWELL — Tomorrow morning the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will mark the winter solstice by taking an unprecedented step to expand government's reach into the Internet by attempting to regulate its inner workings. In doing so, the agency will circumvent Congress and disregard a recent court ruling... (more)


December 19, 2010
PATRICK GARRY — Most Republican members of Congress are celebrating the tax bill signed last Friday by President Obama. This bill provides a two-year extension for the Bush tax cuts, which was vehemently opposed by the left. Indeed, perhaps that explains why the Republicans are so self-congratulatory about the bill, because it was their first significant legislative triumph in nearly a half-decade... (more)
