How Big Tech took over the Democrats - Andrew Orlowski (11/28/2022)
Imagine this. A shady offshore finance business has pledged $1 billion to get a Republican president elected in 2024. The founder donates to a vast network of conservative activists and publicly promotes causes that they hold dear. What could go wrong?

Young Americans Voted to Ruin their Lives - Dennis Prager (11/27/2022)
The Left has created the unprecedented explosion — not only in America, but in recorded history — of young people who think they are really a member of the opposite sex.

Resistance Is Necessary - Craig Trainor (11/26/2022)
CRT's principal claim is that America is systemically racist and incapable of racial justice. It is a wholesale ideological assault on the American experiment and rejects our founding principles.

Christmas Queens - Robert Knight (11/25/2022)
We've had a very serious setback this past week in the cause of freedom, courtesy of a dozen "woke" Republican senators. But first, we'll begin with a bit of pop culture that speaks to where we are as a nation.

The Anti-Thanksgiving Activism Dividing America Is Rooted In Ungratefulness - Casey Chalk (11/24/2022)
Only in America are anti-American activists given such liberty to express their disdain for everything our nation represents.

Time to Reject the 'Savior' Class - Laura Hollis (11/23/2022)
You didn't have to know diddly squat about cryptocurrencies to foretell that this scam would come crashing down. And you don't need more than common sense to reject the "savior class" and their historic hubris.

Debt: The Greatest Threat to America's National Security -
Barry W. Poulson, Admiral Bill Owens, and Hon. David M. Walker
We can no longer count on Congress to put our nation's finances in order. An Article V Convention of States to propose a 'fiscal responsibility amendment' to the Constitution is needed to provide the necessary correction.

Biden's Student Loan 'Forgiveness' Is An Even Bigger Scam Than We Thought - Robert Busek (11/21/2022)
Unfortunately, by the time the courts vacated Biden's loan forgiveness disaster, the real goal of the gimmick had already been achieved; Gen Z and millennials turned out in droves on Election Day to turn the "red wave" into a "red trickle."

Magic Cars - John Stossel (11/20/2022)
Politicians praise electric cars. If everyone buys them, they say, solar and wind power will replace our need for oil. But that's absurd.

Another Bloated Farm Bill Will Not Fix Grocery Prices - Veronique de Rugy (11/19/2022)
Turkey prices are soaring this Thanksgiving, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. With food prices helping to drive inflation to a 40-year high, Americans are feeling the heat at grocery stores and during family dinners.

Defeat the Globalist UniParty with a Bottom-up Political Insurgency - Joe Holt (11/18/2022)
There is a Cold Civil War underway in the United States to determine who should control the federal government. It is not a contest between the Democrat and Republican ideologies, but a battle between the entrenched power and the American people.

Democracy Dies in Climate Panic - Tim Graham (11/17/2022)
The United Nations is one of the most sacred political cows in the liberal media. This is especially true when they convene the global elites on the perils of "climate change."

Global Elites: 'No Money, No Problems' - Jonathan Bronitsky (11/16/2022)
he Marxists of yesteryear just wanted you to have as much as your fellow citizen—no more, no less. Or at least that's what they claimed. Today's totalitarians, by contrast, don't want you to have anything.

The Coming Storm Over Trans 'Tuskegee Experiment' - Rod Dreher (11/15/2022)
Those who did this to young women -- people like Dr. Gallagher, who revels on social media in her success in slicing the healthy breasts off of women -- God willing, they will pay within the limits of the law for what they have done.

Standing Firm - Jeremy Carl (11/14/2022)
While it did not by itself start a "national conversation" amidst the flurry of last-minute electioneering, a series of political advertisements appeared in late October that may be the most consequential ads of the 2022 election cycle.

The New Collectivism of Big Government Elites - Richard Shinder (11/13/2022)
The primary fault line in our current political climate is that between a belief system rooted in law and policy championing the primacy of the individual and the various isms seeking societal advancement through collective action.

Prepare For Even More Abuses of Power - David Strom (11/12/2022)
One of the great not-so-secret advantages America has had over most places is the checks and balances the Founders placed into our Constitution.

The Other Imaginary Red Wave - Heather Mac Donald (11/11/2022)
Well, that was a dud. Not the abortive "red wave," but the Democratic expectation (read: ill-disguised hope) that "election deniers" would disrupt polling places on Tuesday with violence and intimidation.

Inconvenient Facts - John Stossel (11/10/2022)
Although driving an electric car puts little additional carbon into the air, producing the electricity to charge its battery adds plenty. Most of America's electricity is produced by burning natural gas and coal. Just 12% comes from wind or solar powe

The Misinformation Police Are Coming for You - Neil Patel (11/9/2022)
If Democrats lose broadly in the election, their first move should be to look inward. It will not be. First out of the box will be to claim the electorate was "misinformed."

What the American Founders Meant by Equality - Dan Sanchez (11/8/2022)
The Declaration of Independence famously proclaimed that "all men are created equal." Thanks in part to that prestigious endorsement, "equality" has become a widely held social ideal. But what most modern-day egalitarians promote is far removed from it.

Progs In Action In Washington State Supreme Court - Beege Welborn (11/7/2022)
There's another, even more horrid aspect to this entire race-based farce, and that's its effect on JUSTICE itself. When one side is already presumed to be discriminated against going in, how does the other side defend itself as it has every right

Senator Dick Durbin Thinks Free Speech Only Means Speech He Agrees With - Kathleen J. Anderson (11/6/2022)
It is quite alarming how many elected officials lack basic knowledge of our Constitution and the laws of our land. Moreover, some of these elected officials are lawyers, which is even scarier when you think about it.

No Amnesty for Pandemic Tyranny - Micah Meadowcroft (11/5/2022)
We are to give a pardon to the officials who, over and over, proved themselves blustering little tyrants, and worse, incompetent? Absolutely not.

Who Really Shut Down Our Businesses and Schools? - Stephen Moore (11/4/2022)
The public saw with the abysmal test scores of our children the severe and lasting damage done. Voters are angry, and they should be. Lockdowns were a tragic mistake with very small health benefits but giant costs to society.

You Must Make a Choice - Newt Gingrich (11/3/2022)
You will get to choose whether you want a better future for yourself, your family, and your neighbors – or if you want to stay on the disastrous road our country has been on for nearly two years.

No Amnesty for COVID Oppressors - John Nolte (11/2/2022)
Our COVID oppressors at the far-left Atlantic are now begging for a COVID amnesty in the wake of all their anti-science COVID oppression. That's not going to happen. Ever.

The Party of Perverts - Ilana Mercer (11/1/2022)
To Progressives, it's just orientation day at kindergarten—they have not a bad word to say about turning school children into the captive audience and playthings of perverts and ethnocidally antiwhite agitators, posing as educators.

Democrats: The Only Way To Save Democracy Is One-Party Rule - David Harsanyi (10/31/2022)
At this point, it would save everyone time if Democrats could simply point to a policy agenda item that isn't going to save democracy — if such a thing exists.

Biden Mistakenly Imagines That Congress Approved His Student Debt Cancellation Scheme - Jacob Sullum (10/30/2022)
President Joe Biden recently claimed his student loan forgiveness plan was authorized by "a law" that he "just signed" after Congress narrowly approved it. More dementia. Congress never passed it.

What Border Crisis? What Biden Fiasco? - Tim Graham (10/29/2022)
For many years now, the networks have boosted illegal immigrants as somehow the best possible citizens imaginable. They've touted a pile of valedictorians while ignoring the murderers and rapists.

Standing Against the Progressive March Into Our Schools - Lisa Bomengo (10/28/2022)
The politics of gender ideology, critical race theory, climate activism and socialism over capitalism have infiltrated television, movies, books, magazines, social media, sports, corporate board rooms, Wall Street, college campuses and so on.

The Left Bases Its Politics on the Toilet - R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. (10/27/2022)
Let us consider those angry Americans who make an issue over which public toilet they will use — and, for that matter, which locker room and personal pronoun they prefer, etc., etc.

Reclaiming Everyone's Republic: Term-Limit the Bureaucrats - Hon. Thaddeus G. McCotter (10/26/2022)
The Left's elitist view of government by "experts" empowers the administrative state to impose upon the Americans the Left's radical policies, which would never be accepted and implemented by the majority of voters.

"Their" Democracy - Auron MacIntyre (10/25/2022)
The Biden administration continued its campaign to criminalize political opposition on Friday after a judge sentenced Steve Bannon to four months in jail for criminal contempt of Congress.

Why The Left Hates God, Family and Country - Scott Hogenson (10/24/2022)
These three principles have been under attack for centuries, and the reason is simple. If people believe in God, family and country, they are less apt to embrace tyrannical politicians and their political systems.

Before You Vote: Check Your 401k - Newt Gingrich (10/23/2022)
This is no normal bear market. It wasn't caused by a fluke, or a natural trend. It was caused by the Washington Democrats' disastrous policy. So, we urge all Americans to look at their 401ks before they vote next month.

We Need To Stop Calling Ourselves Conservatives - John Daniel Davidson (10/22/2022)
The conservative project has failed, and conservatives need to forge a new political identity that reflects our revolutionary moment.

Destroying America's Energy Advantage To 'Save Democracy' - David Harsanyi (10/21/2022)
Engaging in cynically self-serving partisan behavior to win elections sounds profoundly corrupt. Engaging in cynically self-serving partisan destructive behavior to "save democracy" … well, that sounds profoundly rational. And so it goes.

'Diversity Is Our Strength,' They Lied - Rod Dreher (10/20/2022)
When you build a military for any reason other than winning wars, you place the safety and liberty of the nation at risk. "Diversity" and "equity" do not guarantee victory.

The American Stasi State - Alan West (10/19/2022)
The midterm elections will determine whether or not our constitutional republic survives or if the American Stasi state expands.

U.S. Receives Lowest Economic Freedom Ranking Since 1975 - Vince Ginn (10/18/2022)
The 2022 Economic Freedom of the World (EFW) Report is released, reflecting data and rankings for 2020. The findings show that economic freedom in the U.S. fell to its lowest level since 1975, from 6th place to 7th.

The Labor Market's Double-Edged Sword - Rachel Greszler (10/17/2022)
Would-be workers on the sidelines add nothing to output and usually take from it through government welfare benefits that subtract from other people's paychecks. Work is fundamental to American society and to human flourishing.

The New Global Virus Is Runaway Government Spending and Debt - Stephen Moore (10/16/2022)
Political leaders across the globe seem to be suffering from a severe case of economic amnesia. Reagan said it best, and it is more appropriate today than ever before: "Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem."

Trump Isn't Dangerous; This Administration Is - Laura Hollis (10/15/2022)
None of the economic consequences of Biden's policies are inadvertent or unforeseeable. What's worse, there is no indication that Biden (or whoever is making the decisions behind the scenes) intends to reverse course.

America's Suicidal Energy Policy Has Very Real Costs - Ben Shapiro (10/14/2022)
Why, precisely, doesn't the Biden administration just ramp up energy production by unleashing the power of America's oil industry? After all, America is still the world's leading supplier of oil and natural gas.

Explaining Conservatism - Dennis Prager (10/13/2022)
There are reasons many young people shy away from conservatism. The most obvious is that they have been exposed only to left-wing values — from elementary school through graduate school, in the movies, on television, and on social media.

The Army of the Woke - LTC (Ret.) Darin Gaub (10/12/2022)
If our nation wants a military that's ready to fight and win today, it's time to elect civilian oversight in our nation's government that will stop playing politics with readiness and remember that our adversaries do not care about our pronoun

Armed and Dangerous Federal Bureaucrats - David Strom (10/11/2022)
Pop quiz: which is a larger force, federal bureaucrats armed with weapons and the power to arrest citizens, or the US Marine Corps? You already know the answer. In the case of government, the most ridiculous answer is always right.

As Russia Threatens Nuclear War, Who In This Administration Is Putting America First? - William Wolfe (10/10/2022)
Who is leading so as to avoid dragging the U.S. into a direct and possibly nuclear armed confrontation with Russia over foreign soil?
