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. Since [...]
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 [...]
DAVID FRENCH, ACLJ This morning the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals declined a request for an en banc hearing in a case holding that school officials could censor students who peacefully wore American flag clothing because those students were violently threatened by anti-American classmates. [...]

BY ALAN CARUBA “For years there has been a rising tide of Islamic radicalism, starting in the Middle East, providing a hospitable environment in which terrorism grew naturally,” wrote former Ambassador John Bolton, in a May edition of The Washington Times. The eruption of the Islamic [...]

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Recently, I came across an alarming article by Congressman Sam Johnson of Texas. Johnson was a fighter pilot in the Air Force who served in the Vietnam War and spent almost seven years as a prisoner of war. He endured torture and nearly four years of solitary confinement. He [...]

BY T.F. STERN Last Friday a friend of ours had a few folks over for dinner as they showed us their new house. Upon entering my attention was drawn to a row of bookshelves handsomely filled with a life time’s collection of ‘favorites’. He explained how painful it was deciding which [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA The first thing you need to keep in mind is that Syria and Iraq are now just lines on a map at this point. They don’t exist as national states because the former is locked in a civil war that will replace its dictator one way or the other and the latter’s alleged government [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY The Obama administration has filed suit against the Pennsylvania State Police, after it came to light that the State Police have a slightly lower pass rate for women on their physical fitness test. They found that 94% of men passed the test and only 71% of women passed. The [...]
ROBERT RECTOR, RACHEL SHEFFIELD, HERITAGE FOUNDATION Abstract In his January 1964 State of the Union address, President Lyndon Johnson proclaimed, “This administration today, here and now, declares unconditional war on poverty in America.” In the 50 years since that time, U.S. taxpayers [...]
ANDREW J. COULSON, CATO INSTITUTE For the past three decades, Chile has had a nationwide voucher-like school choice program. Parents can choose among public and private schools, and the government picks up most or all of the tab. But, since the election last fall of a left-leaning government led [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA My generation, born in the late 1930s and the 1940s, has witnessed a dramatic change in the role and the rights of women in America. A significant result of the women’s liberation movement is a change in the role of traditional marriage that was reported in early [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA Two trends have emerged since President Obama’s September 10 speech regarding his intention to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State. One is the understanding that he will not commit U.S. troops as “boots on the ground” to fight a force estimated variously between [...]
BY SELWYN DUKE If I pointed out that involvement in every major 20th-century conflict the US was part of occurred on liberals’ watch, it might not be entirely fair. True, there was WWI under Wilson, WWII under FDR, Korea under Truman, and Vietnam under Kennedy and Johnson. But the second Great [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY It is a long-standing American custom in all sorts of legislative and other public meetings to open the meeting with a prayer. This bothers the atheists, so they have initiated many lawsuits to try to get supremacist judges to forbid prayers at public meetings. Last May, [...]
LEONARD E. READ, THE FREEMAN Clichés of Progressivism, Part 6 Once an activity has been socialized for a spell, nearly everyone will concede that that’s the way it should be. Without socialized education, how would the poor get their schooling? Without the socialized post office, how [...]

LLOYD MARCUS, PROUD UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN Even a few white conservative radio hosts became uncomfortable and pushed back against my saying that slavery happened a ga-zillion years ago and it is time for black America to get over it. Apparently, they considered such a statement coming from a [...]
BY ALAN CARUBA "ISIS is not Islamic", said Barack Obama as he gave yet another vapid speech to say what he will or will not do next about the threat of Islam. What he said is both idiotic and a lie. ISIS calls itself the Islamic State. Obama used the word "war" only once, but ISIS is [...]
BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY For those who promote legalized gambling as a means of economic development or revitalization, or as a painless way to pay for public schools, the recent news from Atlantic City, NJ, is sobering. Dominated by its famous Boardwalk, the beach resort is familiar to Americans [...]

BY ALAN CARUBA As we close in on the 13th anniversary of the infamous 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, the media is full of predictions about attacks that will occur. A September 2nd Debka File, an Israeli news agency, reported “Credible information has reached Saudi, [...]
