BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY After a court struck down Indiana’s Right to Work law, unions had every reason to think they would win again in the Indiana Supreme Court. Instead, in a stunning 5-0 decision, the Indiana Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s Right to Work law, and reversed the trial court [...]

BY BOB BARR There was a time, not so long ago, when interviewing the President of the United States was considered the pinnacle of a professional journalist’s career. Such an opportunity to probe the mind of the man responsible for directly or indirectly impacting the lives of virtually every [...]
BY T.F. STERN There’s a news item on the internet about Sharia courts being used in Texas. It would appear that what’s good for the goose isn’t necessarily good for the gander; or something like that. Having read the article it would appear these ‘Sharia’ courts are well within the [...]

And the Blizzard that Never Was BY SELWYN DUKE Call it the Blizzard of Oz. The “Snowstorm of the Century” Monday was supposed to be historic. All we got was histrionics. It turned out that the real blustery wind was hot air — and the worst accumulation was the knee-deep [...]
BY SELWYN DUKE With Sarah Palin once again hinting at a presidential run, pundits and politics wonks are all the more aflutter with 2016 talk. The predictable slings and arrows of the surly left are coming her way, while her excited fans are firing up the troops. Then there are those who say [...]

BY ALAN CARUBA I made a promise to myself that I would not write about President Obama’s State of the Union speech because that would require me to watch him deliver it. Like many others I can barely watch him under any circumstance because, to my mind, that means having to watch a [...]

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY For those who promote legalized gambling as a way to revitalize the economy or pay for public schools, the news from Atlantic City, NJ, is sobering. For a while, Atlantic City seemed to prosper. People rode buses from all over the northeast to sit in casinos for hours, but [...]

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Feminists have been claiming that certain words and phrases are discriminatory, but a recent feminist list takes the prize for silliness. We’ve heard for decades that it’s wrong to mention only the male gender. There’s nothing new about feminists demanding that we [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA Fifty million Americans who live in the northeast will experience what is predicted to be a historic blizzard from Monday evening through Tuesday. Cities and towns will virtually or literally close down. People will be told to stay indoors for their safety and to facilitate the [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA Can anyone remember how awful the U.S. healthcare free market system was that it needed to be replaced by the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare? Can’t remember? That’s because it was ranked one of the best of the world and represented 17.9% of the nation’s [...]

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY It’s Roe v. Wade all over again, as the Supreme Court is poised to invent a new right to same-sex marriage found nowhere in the four corners of the Constitution. Fortunately, the Founders gave us checks and balances against this overreaching in power. The Framers [...]
