LLOYD MARCUS, PROUD UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN I have said it before and I will say it again, I love Sarah Palin. Governor Palin has come out strongly calling for the impeachment of President Obama. I say, “Way to go sister!” During an interview, Sarah expressed the frustrations of millions of [...]
BY BOB BARR Judging from the seething reaction by liberals to the Supreme Court’s recent decision in the “Hobby Lobby” case, one might easily forget that just two years ago they were singing the Court’s praises after it refused to declare ObamaCare unconstitutional. Then again, such [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA The segments when Jay Leno would take to the street to ask Americans questions about things that one would expect them to know and those when Jesse Watters of the O’Reilly Factor on Fox News does the same thing invariably suggest that those interviewed are appallingly stupid. [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA A news item in late June caught my eye. It was in the Washington Free Beacon and the headline was “EPA spends $1.6 million on hotel for ‘Environmental Justice’ conference.” The event will occur in the fall and the location is the Renaissance Arlington Capital View [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY American-born workers have had a net loss in jobs since 2000, while all of the job growth since then has gone to immigrants, according to a remarkable new study by the Center for Immigration Studies.

A Second Look at the Fed and the 2008 Financial Crisis NORBERT J. MICHEL Ph.D., HERITAGE FOUNDATION Abstract There is still a great deal of debate over the Federal Reserve’s role in the 2008 financial crisis. Critics have blamed the Fed’s policies for everything from causing the crisis [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY The president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Tom Donohue, hurled a challenge to Republicans. If you don't pass amnesty for illegal aliens this year, don't "bother to run a candidate in 2016." Somebody probably then told Donohue that was an outrageous statement, so he tried [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA Consider this, if there had been a state of Israel in the 1930s, many more European Jews would have been able to escape the fate that consumed six million of them during the Nazi Holocaust during World War II. That there is an Israel today explains when French and Ukrainian [...]

Even his State Department admits there is no reason to refuse its construction [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY A new book called The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science makes the case that climate change is a fraud. The global warming movement has been designed to justify more government controls, enrich its proponents, and radically change society. Climate scientist Tim Ball [...]
