BY ALAN CARUBA The revelations, reported initially in the most left-wing newspaper in the nation, The New York Times, that Hillary Clinton used her own private emails to conduct public business, suggests that there are forces within the Democratic Party that do not want her to be its candidate [...]
ILYA SHAPIRO, CATO INSTITUTE All across the globe, people see the United States as a land of opportunity and dream of making their way here to work hard and enjoy the prosperity that our system of laws helps provide. Cindy Vong made that dream a reality by emigrating from Vietnam, becoming a [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA On Wednesday, March 4, the Supreme Court will hear the King v. Burwell case. It is likely to deliver a death blow to ObamaCare when the decision is announced in a few months. About the only good thing ObamaCare demonstrated is that the federal government should be kept from taking [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY One of the biggest reasons why parents want to get rid of Common Core in the schools is that they recognize it as an attempt of the Federal Government to take control of what our kids are taught and not taught. They know that our U.S. Constitution gives absolutely no control [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA In 1933, approximately 9.5 million Jews lived in Europe, representing 1.7% of the total European population which, in turn, was about 60% of the Jewish world population, estimated to have been 15.2 million. By 1945, in the wake of the Holocaust, two out of every three Jews [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY In the first week of February, the Islamic State released a video showing a Jordanian pilot being burned alive in a steel cage. The next day, the United Nations issued a report describing scary details of the Islamic state’s “mass executions of boys, as well as reports of [...]

BY T.F. STERN There’s a news story out of Bryan,Texas which attempts to explain why the Federal government raided a political meeting put on by a group of folks contemplating Texas Secession from the United States on Valentine’s Day. Police officers representing local, state and Federal [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA The strangest thing about Obama’s efforts to achieve friendly relations with Iran, something he has tried to do since he first took office in 2009, is that Iran has made it abundantly clear since its Islamic revolution in 1979 that it hates America and, in tandem, Israel as [...]
BY PAUL DRIESSEN ~Climate Crisis extremists attack experts who challenge claims of imminent climate Armageddon~ ISIL and other Islamist jihad movements continue to round up and silence all who oppose them or refuse to convert to their extreme religious tenets. They are inspiring thousands to [...]
By RYAN SCOTT WELCH Some people will say that they really want to live in a country, or have America become a country, where the government takes care of you from ‘cradle to grave’. This is the goal of many as exemplified by Obama’s webpage called “The Life of Julia” where Obama shows [...]
MAX BORDERS, THE FREEMAN Clichés of Progressivism, Part 14 Healthcare is important. People get sick and injured. As compassionate human beings, we should do what we can, within reason, to see that people are treated—especially when they don’t have the means to get treatment themselves. [...]
CHRIS EDWARDS, CATO INSTITUTE Tomorrow at CPAC, I will discuss some advantages of infrastructure privatization. Perhaps the largest advantage is innovation. Unlike government bureaucracies, private firms in a competitive environment are eager to maximize the net returns of projects, so they [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Why does a college education cost so much? Tuition has increased far higher and at a faster rate than inflation. Graduating with massive college loan debt not only has a negative impact on students and on their families, but it also harms society. A new book by Paul Streitz, [...]
LAWRENCE W. REED, THE FREEMAN Clichés of Progressivism, Part 13 “Gym Now Stresses Cooperation, Not Competition,” blared a headline in The New York Times a decade ago. The story was about an elementary school where “confrontational” games, team sports, and elimination rounds were [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA The carnival in Rio de Janeiro from February 13 through the 17th was one heck of a party. It was celebrated by the locals, plus an estimated one million visitors, complete with fabulous parades, street parties and balls. Brazil is blessed with some great beaches, the most famous [...]

ADAM BATES, CATO INSTITUTE A quick glance at the Federal Register (Vol. 80, No. 37, p. 9987-88) today reveals that Attorney General Eric Holder, who earned cautious praise last month for a small reform to the federal equitable sharing program, has now delegated authority to the Director of the [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY “It hit a nerve,” Rudy Giuliani observed about his widely reported insight that President Obama does not love America. Amid the uproar from the liberal media that anyone would dare question a liberal’s patriotism, the former mayor of New York City is not backing away [...]
Have the perverse incentives been proved? ROBERT P. MURPHY, THE FREEMAN Just about everyone agrees that incentives affect behavior, but economists really mean it. That’s because economists take the logic of incentives further than most other people are willing to. Such analysis often reveals [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA The America that has existed from the days of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, when its sovereignty was acknowledged by a treaty with England 1783, and its founding in 1788 with the ratification of the Constitution is no more. The America for which thousands fought and [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Yesterday I told you how unhappy college students are because of the new ratio of males to females. Colleges used to have a majority of guys, but today, the average is 57% female and often only 43% male. This new ratio has dramatically restructured social relationships on [...]
But It Couldn’t Silence Their Faith MATTHEW CLARK, ACLJ Last weekend, we learned in horror that ISIS had beheaded another 21 Christians, this time from Egypt. ISIS’s reign of terror in the region knows no bounds – it knows no national boundaries – as these men were taken from a [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA Something very unpleasant is occurring in America. Those who have a strong religious faith are being denied the right to say “no” based on its teachings and values. This is particularly true these days as homosexuals, barely three percent of the population, demand that they be [...]
By Ryan Scott Welch ~The NSA spying is not only illegal and unconstitutional, but it is a greater threat to freedom than ISIS~ I have seen a fair amount of debate and discussion about the NSA spying program, but one thing I have not seen is how specifically this spying is a direct threat to [...]
MARK W. HENDRICKSON, CENTER FOR VISION AND VALUES February 22 marked the 35th anniversary of the upset victory by the U.S. hockey team over their heavily favored Soviet rivals in the 1980 Winter Olympics. Ever since known as the “Miracle on Ice,” Sports Illustrated named this game “the [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA Some say in ice. From what I've tasted of desire. I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate. To say that for destruction ice Is also great. And would suffice. -- Robert Frost, American poet. Robert W. Felix borrowed [...]
BY T.F. STERN Many years ago a friend of mine invited me to become a part of a multilevel marketing business, a chance to start something on the side and provide extra income. This wasn’t some get rich quick scheme and would require effort and acquiring new skills to become moderately [...]
DOUG BANDOW, CATO INSTITUTE American foreign policy is a bipartisan failure. The U.S. must intervene everywhere all the time, irrespective of consequences? No matter how disastrous the outcome, promiscuous interventionists insist that the idea was sound. Any problems obviously result from [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY The New York Times published a provocative news story called “The New Math on Campus.” No, it’s not about the failure of Common Core to teach arithmetic, it’s about the dramatic ratio of males to females on most college campuses today. Long ago when I went to college, [...]
