BY STEVE FARRELL Should the decision to partake of illegal drugs become sacrosanct, now and forever? Or to put it another way, are all moral choices, no matter how extreme, beyond the reach of the law because they involve private decisions on moral matters? This is a good question. There are [...]
BY SELWYN DUKE It long ago became clear to me that, despite all the pretense, protesting and politicking, no one who has ever seriously thought about equality actually believes in it. When making this case, one could point to how Eric Holder’s DOJ is currently suing the Pennsylvania State Police [...]
LLOYD MARCUS, PROUD UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN Folks, this crap has gotten serious. Our fellow Americans, black and white, are suffering and even dying because the elites in politics and the mainstream media have been selling false narratives (lies) to black youths for decades. A recent article [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Who decides what is in the best interest of a child? That expression has been part of our legal system for centuries, and when the great British lawyer, William Blackstone, codified English law in the 18th century, the expression clearly meant that the biological parents of a [...]
THE AMERICANIST: CLARENCE CARSON ESSAY Source: The Freeman: Ideas On Liberty, Nov. 01, 1962 Many of the departures from the American tradition came with dramatic swiftness in this century. A Rip Van Winkle who went to sleep in 1910 and woke again in 1935 would have discovered many of his [...]
DARPANA SHETH, INSTITUTE FOR JUSTICE For the past few months, Chris and Markela Sourovelis have been living a nightmare. It started on May 8 when police showed up on their doorstep to kick them and their family out of their home in suburban Philadelphia. Without any notice or opportunity to see a [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA One has to have some sympathy for those in the CIA or the White House folks charged with telling the President what has been going on in Syria since 2011 when the opposition to Bashar al-Assad’s dictatorship turned into a fighting war. It must have looked and felt like playing [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA It took the gruesome videos of two American journalists being beheaded by a masked Islamic State (ISIS) butcher, followed since then by more victims, to finally wake Americans to the threat that they face from Islam, but the beheading of a Moore, Oklahoma victim by a man who had [...]
BY T.F. STERN It’s fun to joke around with total strangers waiting in line to pay for groceries or gas. I’ve been doing it for years, starting with the little Vietnamese lady who ran the Stop & Rob store; might have had a different name but you get the idea. Each time I’d visit [...]
PAUL C. "CHIP" KNAPPENBERGER, CATO INSTITUTE This week, a few major media outlets covered my take on the effectiveness and judiciousness of President Obama’s call, at the U.N. Climate Summit, for all countries of the world to make pledges of how and how much they are going to reduce their [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY The British press just reported the result of a new study by academics from Oxford and the University of London that children raised in stable marital homes are better behaved than classmates brought up by unmarried parents. Children raised by married parents show lower [...]
BY PAUL DRIESSEN ~Cornwall Alliance works to ensure reliable, affordable energy for poor families worldwide~ In a more rational, moral, compassionate, scientifically literate world, this Cornwall declaration would not be needed. It assesses the “far-reaching, costly policies” that the [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA In a nation where there is a scarcity of good news, hearing Eric Holder give a farewell speech upon his announcement that he will be leaving as the Attorney General was surely welcome in some circles. I was never a fan of his because he was in my opinion always more of a [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA By far the worst law passed by Congress in 2010 was the Affordable Care Act (ACA) otherwise known as Obamacare. It was passed without a single Republican vote and as more Americans experience the higher costs and other aspects of it realize how it has negatively affected their [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA From time to time I hear President Obama described as “an evil genius”, but he is neither. He’s not evil. He’s something much worse. He is a fool who thinks he’s a genius. This is not about his intelligence. No one gets to be President of the United States without [...]
A family feud in a grocery chain reveals a vital lesson in business and life LARRY MCGATH, THE FREEMAN A family feud… Two cousins, whose names differ only by a middle initial… A business battle that captures New England’s imagination. And, most importantly, a demonstration that free [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Did you know that Congress once printed Bibles? At the time of the American Revolution, the British government had strict laws about printing Bibles. Only a few printers were licensed to do so, and none of them was in the American colonies, so all Bibles had to be imported [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA Thanks to Sunday’s Climate March in New York and Tuesday’s Climate Summit at the United Nations, Americans and others will have been deluged with the lies that have been told to sustain this greatest of all hoaxes. Here are the known facts. Use them to protect yourself [...]

BY ALAN CARUBA I confess I have always been wary of intellectuals. They love arcane theories that often have little to do with real life and this is particularly true of eco-intellectuals who have embraced a panoply of lies and claims about the “environment”, “fossil fuels”, [...]
BY T.F. STERN Last weekend an opportunity to visit my folks presented itself with the help of some reasonable air fare. Mom and Dad are getting up in age and I’m no spring chicken so it made sense to fly out there and spend time with them. My father and I don’t talk much with his hearing [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA Despite the several thousands who will participate in a Climate March and the world leaders who will do so in a UN Climate Summit this week, is there anyone who seriously believes that humans have any impact or control over the climate? Or even the weather? The answer, [...]
LIBERTY ALERTS, LIBERTY COUNSEL WASHINGTON, D.C.— Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg told an audience at the University of Minnesota Law School that if the Sixth District Court of Appeals rules in favor of same-sex marriage, there will be “no need for us to rush” on a decision on [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY The strategists who base their political advice on public opinion polls have just had a surprise. A new poll reports that the American people are now more likely to trust Republicans to handle immigration and less likely to trust Democratic plans to offer illegals a path to [...]
Dispelling labor market myths with theory and data SANDY IKEDA, THE FREEMAN If you have a superficial understanding of modern economics, the following argument sounds plausible: In the free market, employers have an incentive to lower costs by driving wages down, which is bad for workers.

BY ALAN CARUBA Other than earning her law degree, name one thing that Hillary Clinton has accomplished on her own. Her accomplishments—slim as they are—have been achieved on the coattails of either Bill Clinton or Barack Obama. Had she not been the First Lady, would anyone have ever heard [...]
