WASHINGTON TIMES Tensions are rising in the wake of federal busybodies who are making such pests of themselves that land, and who owns it, is becoming a hot-button issue west of the Rockies. Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy's high-profile standoff with the Bureau of Land Management earlier this year put the issue into the headlines.... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES I have three questions for my Democratic colleagues in the Senate: Should Congress be able to ban books? Should Congress be able to ban films? Should Congress be able to ban groups such as the NAACP, the National Rifle Association and the Sierra Club from speaking?... (more)

WESLEY PRUDEN Harry Reid is the majority bumpkin of the U.S. Senate, vying with the vice president to say weird, goofy, sometimes amusing and often embarrassing things. His Democratic colleagues typically chuckle, roll their eyes, and put it down to ol' Harry just being old Harry. (He's only 78, but in his case, 78 is the new 90.) Long-suffering aides shrug at his bellicose ad-libs and call it "just Harry getting out ahead of his skis."... (more)

NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and a group of House lawmakers are building a case for impeaching Attorney General Eric Holder.

WASHINGTON TIMES President Obama's ultimate weakness may be that he believes his own blarney. A year ago, Mr. Obama boasted in a "fireside" Web chat that his "is the most transparent administration in history." There was not the slightest hint of irony. He may actually believe it... (more)

FOX NEWS Pastors and churches have been banned from helping the thousands of illegal immigrant children housed in border detention facilities run by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, clergy in Texas and Arizona tell me. "Border Patrol told us pastors and churches are not allowed to visit," said Kyle Coffin, the pastor of CrossRoads Church in Tucson, Arizona. "It's pretty heartbreaking that they don't let anybody in there -- even credentialed pastors."... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN The American Dream is dying for tens of millions of unemployed, underemployed, and long-term-jobless citizens. But the White House has guaranteed that one sector of the U.S. economy will thrive for decades to come: immigration lawyers... (more)

RICK PERRY President Obama's appropriations request only deals with one aspect of the current crisis on our southern border, while barely addressing its root cause: an unsecured border. Of the $3.7 billion in President Obama's request, only $68.4 million -- or 1.8% -- is directly dedicated to border security efforts, which are absolutely essential to resolving this crisis, and avoiding more such crises in the future...

PJ MEDIA Reuters published these two photos from President Obama's meeting with Texas Gov. Rick Perry Wednesday.

CLIFF KINCAID Edward Snowden mouthpiece Glenn Greenwald has "revealed" that the NSA and FBI have been "spying" on the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. Is this the "naming of names" the press has been waiting for? If this is true, it means the NSA has been doing its job. It means critics of the NSA were wrong in portraying the U.S. agency as an out-of-control entity targeting innocent people for no reason...

NEWSMAX Former IRS supervisor Lois Lerner emailed colleagues urging them to be careful about what they put in their own messages because the information could be discovered by congressional investigators.

The declaration is due by August 10... (more)

BRYAN FISCHER After reading Ann Coulter's all-out scathing attack on Chris McDaniel and grassroots conservatives yesterday, the question must be asked: what in the world has happened to her? Has her brain been mysteriously rewired by the political elite, like the vice-presidential candidate in Denzel Washington's remake of the Manchurian Candidate?... (more)

WESTERN JOURNALISM Though there have been few updates from the House investigation into the 2012 terrorist attack of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy offered some insight into what is to come. The former prosecutor was tasked with heading the inquiry; and according to a Politico report this week, he is preparing to unleash his special committee designed to dig for details regarding America's response to the ambush that left four Americans dead...

THE TELEGRAPH A judge in Australia has been criticised after saying incest may no longer be a taboo and that the community may now accept consensual sex between adult siblings.

KEN CONNOR It's been almost a week since the Supreme Court issued their ruling on the Hobby Lobby case, and there appears to be no end in sight to the Left's outrage over the outcome. As expected, given the controversial nature of the issue at hand, most of the ire is reflexive and purely visceral. It's unlikely that many are taking the time to actually educate themselves on the Court's reasoning behind the decision. In their eyes, misogyny and religious fanaticism won out over women's rights, period... (more)

BREITBART Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, "no mas." Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It's the only promise he has kept... (more)

RENEWAMERICA The Drudge Report is running an online poll that indicates 73 percent of its readers want Republicans to impeach Barack Obama.

13 percent say no, and 14 percent say not now – presumably preferring to wait until the Nov. 4 midterm election, when the GOP is expected to win control of both the House and Senate.

The poll is situated under links to Sarah Palin's Tuesday Brietbart op-ed calling to Obama's impeachment, and Pat Buchanan's earlier piece condemning such talk.... (more)

ALAN KEYES As the territorial and constitutional walls of their authority as a people are being sapped and battered down, Americans are beginning urgently to consider what, if anything, they can do. Some seem content to let things go until experience with the harsh reality of tyranny leaves no alternative but to resist, even if it means war... (more)
