BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Although several items on the anti-family agenda have succeeded during the past several decades, many others have been thwarted. The grassroots rose up and rejected the Equal Rights Amendment. Americans increasingly identify themselves as pro-life rather than pro-abortion. So [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA How is Ebola spread? Two ways; one, by letting anyone exposed to it in West Africa into America when they fly here and, two, by assuming that medical professionals and others who have been exposed to it would quarantine themselves from contact with others once they are [...]
BY T.F. STERN The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been in the headlines of late as Ebola takes center stage. The CDC, your tax dollars at work, advertises in its banner, “CDC 24/7: Saving Lives, Protecting People TM”. Perusing their website gives you an idea of the [...]

EARL H. TILFORD, CENTER FOR VISION & VALUES Many Americans think of war as a great national struggle, as was the case during WWII, where violence rose to address the belligerents’ objectives. These were “total” wars between nation-states driven by incompatible political ideologies [...]
MATTHEW CLARK, ACLJ It was only a matter of time, but now Canada, a strong ally of the United States and freedom, has been struck with the brutal reality of radical Islamic jihadist terror. This week not one but two separate terrorist attacks on Canada’s military personnel have ravished [...]
EDUCATION REPORTER, EAGLE FORUM David Coleman, the architect of Common Core who is now the president of the College Board, has again slipped a revision of education under the radar and into U.S. schools.

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY In the world of feminism, abortion is sacred. The National Organization for Women has passed resolution after resolution claiming that abortion is a fundamental human right. That’s a bold claim if you look at the history of abortion laws in our country, as I do in my new [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA The lull in the coverage of all things Islamic was broken by two terrorist attacks in Canada, a reminder that so long as the world does not unite to destroy the Islamic State, we shall all remain vulnerable. A “lone wolf” terrorist can kill you just as dead as one in a [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA One man has died of Ebola in the U.S. and he came here from Liberia. Two of the nurses that tended him are in intensive care and likely to survive. A third was thought to be infected, but wasn’t. That news has been sufficient to keep most Americans calm as the media has done its [...]
GEOFFREY SURTEES, ACLJ Today, the American Center for Law & Justice filed formal comments in objection to the administration’s latest efforts to see to it that both non-profit and for-profit groups continue to kowtow to the HHS Mandate. (The HHS Mandate, adopted pursuant to Obamacare, [...]
DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ Pakistan is a perennial recipient of billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars. It’s an occasional ally/frequent enemy, sometimes actively conspiring against U.S. interests, sometimes actually firing on U.S. troops (incidents so notorious they now have their own Wikipedia page), [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY What comes to mind when you think of the word feminism? Is it equality between men and women? If you put it that way, feminism might sound like a good idea, but in my new book, Who Killed the American Family?, I show just how extreme the feminist goals really are. The [...]
BY CHRISTOPHER C.M. WARREN "Thus heaven I’ve forfeited, I know it full well. My soul, once true to God, is chosen for hell." Karl Marx I do have to say from the outset that whilst I was never a communist (I have, for most of my life, been slightly right of centre, and for a period, [...]
MARK W. HENDRICKSON By now, you’ve probably seen or heard about Ken Burns’ 14-hour documentary on the three most famous Roosevelts: Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor. I have to confess that I almost didn’t watch it. There were two reasons for my reluctance. First, I am not a fan of [...]
CHRIS EDWARDS, CATO INSTITUTE A tax reform is spurring a savings revolution in Canada. Amity Shlaes and I wrote about Canada’s Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs) in the Wall Street Journal in August. We think that such accounts would be a fantastic policy reform for America. They would simplify [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA The joke is that Jimmy Carter is happy that Barack Obama has replaced him as the worst President of the modern era. It is a supreme irony that Obama’s campaign theme was “Hope and Change” when Americans have lost a great deal of hope about their personal futures and the [...]
BY PAUL DRIESSEN ~The courts and Senate provide no checks and balances. Could a Republican Senate help?~ You’ve got to admire the sheer audacity: Democratic Senator Mark Begich telling Alaska voters that he stood up to President Obama and fought for oil drilling and jobs in his state. Maybe [...]
BY CARL L. BANKSTON III The recent controversy over Ayaan Hirsi Ali's speech at Yale reminded me of a review I published back in 2011 of Paul Berman's book The Flight of the Intellectuals. I'm posting the review here: Two criticisms lie at the heart of Paul Berman’s The Flight of the [...]
CHRIS EDWARDS, CATO INSTITUTE One of my first professional jobs 25 years ago was with the economic forecasting firm DRI/McGraw-Hill. It was fun work, but I noticed that the firm’s gross domestic product forecasts with models hundreds of equations long were no better than simple forecasts [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA As this is being written, Rasmussen Reports says that 48% of likely voters approve of President Obama’s performance in office while 50% disapproved. Other polls indicate far more unhappiness with Obama, but in general one must conclude that half the voters are idiots. He is an [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Americans against amnesty are not only worried about unemployed Mexicans crossing our southern border illegally to take U.S. jobs. More than ever, we need the fence that Congress voted for and President George W. Bush made a television photo event when he signed it into [...]

PAUL G. KENGOR, CENTER FOR VISION AND VALUES It was October 19, 1984—30 years ago this week. A gentle, courageous, and genuinely holy priest, Jerzy Popieluszko, age 37, found himself in a ghastly spot that, though it must have horrified him, surely did not surprise him. An unholy trinity of [...]
ROMINA BOCCIA, HERITAGE FOUNDATION Abstract Waste and inefficiency in the U.S. government are rampant. The federal government does too many things that would be done better by individuals or businesses in the private sector, or by state and local governments, or that should not be done at all. [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA What has been the over-riding theme of life in America since Barack Obama became President in 2008? It has been the continued loss of confidence Americans have regarding various elements of the federal government. From the Centers for Disease Control, the Veterans [...]
MARK W. HENDRICKSON Historically, the Democrats proudly have worn the mantle of “the party of labor.” In practice, though, there has been an interesting dichotomy: they undoubtedly are the party of organized labor, with unions being a major pillar of the Democratic Party; however, their [...]
