Marbury v. Biden - Peter Van Buren (8/2/2022)
Joe Biden doesn't have the guts to do what liberals are suggesting he do, namely, refuse to abide by a Supreme Court ruling. It's not clear it would matter anyway.

Abortion, Democracy and History - Star Parker (8/1/2022)
What the Constitution protects is our responsibility to make the right choices. Choice is not the ultimate end, but what we choose. It is not moral relativism that our Constitution secures, but deeper truths of right and wrong.

Pay Attention To The Dutch Farmer Protests Because America Is Next - John Daniel Davidson (7/31/2022)
mericans should start paying closer attention to the ongoing farmer protests in the Netherlands, which this week transformed long swaths of Dutch highways into what looked like a post-apocalyptic warzone.

What to Expect from Washington's Latest Industrial Policy - Veronique de Rugy (7/30/2022)
Industrial policy is making a comeback. For those of you under the age of 50, this is just another term for corporate welfare -- a lovely name for the unlovely practice of a government granting subsidies, protective tariffs and other privileges.

Madison on the Chopping Block? - Jerry Newcombe (7/29/2022)
The woke crowd goes after any founding father in any way associated with slavery. Most recently comes the attack on James Madison, a key architect of the Constitution.

Joe's Dubious Oil Slick - Cal Thomas (7/28/2022)
Lowering the rhetorical temperature in our politics and among scientists would be helpful, since history has shown predictions are often more wrong than right on this and other subjects.

Biden Sends U.S. Troops Back to Somalia - Bonnie Kristian (7/27/2022)
When President Biden decided which "forever wars" to wind down in whole or part, the nebulous U.S. military intervention in Somalia did not make the list. On the contrary.

Kagan: SCOTUS Should Reflect Public Opinion to Retain Its Credibility - Ed Morrissey (7/26/2022)
Really? Our crisis in civics education runs much deeper and wider than anyone previously thought. That must be an unknown codicil to Article III — the Public Opinion Clause, perhaps?

Preserve and Protect the U.S. Constitution From All Enemies - Michael McKenna (7/25/2022)
The Constitution and the values upon which it is based have been our guiding star for almost 250 years. We should keep it that way.

Uncontrolled Opposition - Declan Leary (7/24/2022)
We are dealing here with a single, revolutionary ideology that has ravaged the American family and the public moral order of this country for three full generations.

The 'Green' Globalist Elites Will Make Serfs of Us All - Laura Hollis (7/23/2022)
What do you call an economic system where a relative few individuals own all the land and most of the people who live on that land do so at the sufferance of the landowner? It's feudalism.

How Guns Made America Great …(and Rich) - Geoffrey Norman (7/22/2022)
Mass production changed life for the better in every city, town and village in this country, they spawned the vast middle class. They made America great. And it all started with guns.

The Uvalde Disaster and Our Right to Self-Defense - Andrew P. Napolitano (7/21/2022)
Thomas Jefferson argued that no government is moral without the consent of the governed, and all government needs the actual personal consent of the governed once in every generation. Sounds like it's time.

Green Food Fight Over Farms Will End In Disaster - New York Post (7/20/2022)
From Sri Lanka to the Netherlands, green extremists are implementing, in the name of stopping climate change, agricultural policies that are already having disastrous effects.

A Runaway Executive Branch Threatens Our Free Society - Christiana Kiefer (7/19/2022)
The federal government must be challenged, reigned in, and controlled by duly elected officials and by courts of law. If politicians and bureaucrats are allowed to brazenly ignore the constitutional limits on their power, we are no longer free.

Will There Be War With Russia? - Pat Buchanan (7/18/2022)
At the NATO summit in Madrid, Finland was invited to join the alliance. What does this mean for Finland? If Putin breaches the 830-mile Finnish border, the United States will rise to Helsinki's defense and fight Russia on Finland's side.

Will The U.S. Fall Just As Rome Did? - Spencer Klavan (7/17/2022)
When will we — or did we — pass the point of no return? Should we expect our own Julius Caesar? Rome's example can furnish some guidance.

Latest Symptoms of a Disintegrating Nation - Pat Buchanan (7/16/2022)
The institutions in which Americans now place the least confidence are the presidency, newspapers, the criminal justice system, big business, television news and, at rock bottom, Congress.

Orwell's Work Deserves 'Serious Study' - Christopher Gable (7/15/2022)
Today, the argument for bearing arms is misdirected toward the individual's right to self-defense, but with no discussion of the citizen's right to defend the very existence of their republic.

Dictator Envy - John Stossel (7/14/2022)
President Donald Trump said, when North Korea's Kim Jong-un speaks, "his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same." President Barack Obama told reporters it would be so much easier to be the president of China. Foolish thoughts.

Supreme Court Putting America Back On Track - Peter Morici (7/13/2022)
Progressives are reacting like spoiled royals whose divine right has been expropriated by a violent mob. The fact is progressives have grown accustomed to using the courts to circumvent the legislative process to violate constitutional rights.

Election Audits Should Be Required in Every State After Every Election - Hans von Spakovsky (7/12/2022)
Audits would determine whether the election was administered honestly, fairly, accurately and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

It's Not 'Minority Rule'; It's the Point - David Harsanyi (7/11/2022)
The diffusing of the federal government's power over states and the state's power over individuals isn't "minority rule." It's one of the most indispensable ways to ensure that a diverse people can rule themselves.

Reparations: The Left's New Segregation - Tom Basile (7/10/2022)
Jim Crow didn't die. It transformed into the welfare state. The Great Society programs created a successor to segregation by other means: Welfare, 20 million abortions and the collapse of the Black family.

What Liberals Get Wrong About the Second Amendment - Ann Coulter (7/9/2022)
On the right to bear arms, our Delphic framers were nearly Tolstoyian with their explosion of words: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

Change the Constitution? - John Stossel (7/8/2022)
"Our founders wrote documents ... designed to give you life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," says podcaster Dave Rubin. "Perhaps they should've done it in bold so more people would've paid attention."

Protecting Democracy From the Democrats - Alan West (7/7/2022)
There is no debate as to who is the real threat to our representative democracy. The left in America wants no political or ideological opposition, and our Constitution and democratic institutions stand in their way of totalitarian, tyrannical control.

Kristi Noem Gets Hardball Practice - Tim Graham (7/6/2022)
The "news" networks don't practice any religious observances on their airwaves on Sunday, but they do have a fierce devotion to promoting their sacred "right" to destroy innocent unborn children

Beware: 100% Green Energy Could Destroy the Planet - Stephen Moore (7/5/2022)
The untold story about "green energy" is that it can't possibly be scaled up to provide anywhere near the energy to replace fossil fuels. (Unless we are headed back to the stone ages, which is what some of the "de-growth" advocates favor).

The Crybaby Leftist Mind - Victor Davis Hanson (7/4/2022)
The utter hypocrisy of progressive thought and actions is appalling. Modern progressives assume moral and intellectual authority. Consequently, their supposedly superior ends naturally justify almost any means necessary to achieve them.

Democrats Have Become A Serious Threat To The Republic - David Harsanyi (7/3/2022)
Those who seek to destroy or delegitimize the Supreme Court for upholding the Constitution are no better than those who desire to overturn or delegitimize presidential elections. They probably pose a greater long-term threat to American "democracy."

The Left's 'Liberal World Order' - Katie Pavlich (7/2/2022)
Biden, who lied to the country when he ran for office as a "moderate," has an NEC packed with Bernie Sanders-type socialists. In the 1980s, Sanders, now the Senate Budget Committee Chairman, argued government bread lines were a sign of economic progress.

Insubstantial Due Process - Frank DeVito (7/1/2022)
For decades, the Court has been using the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to declare fundamental rights that are not explicitly written in the Constitution. The doctrine applied is substantive due process.

The Absence of Light - Mark W. Fowler (6/30/2022)
A society led by a movement that throws a tantrum every time it does not get its way is living in darkness. A movement that deliberately overstates its case while lamenting a perceived injustice is living in darkness.

The Balance of Power Shifts Now That Abortion Is on The States - John Dempsey (6/29/2022)
The truth of the matter is this: Democracy was not weakened. It is stronger now that the abortion issue has been placed back in the States, and citizens have a say on the highly controversial topic.

Skirting the issue - Cal Thomas (6/28/2022)
As more states allow for public funds to be used for parochial education, perhaps the last monopoly in America is on the verge of breaking up. Students will benefit. Putting their welfare first should have always been the priority.

A Necessary Rebalancing - Erick Erickson (6/27/2022)
The government is not establishing a religion. It is, instead, now putting the religious on equal footing with the atheist in the town square.

The Alternate Reality Where We Never Needed Roe - Jazz Shaw (6/26/2022)
And yet, with all of our acquired knowledge and our demonstrated ability to work together as a society to meet and defeat daunting challenges, how is it that we never put an end to unplanned pregnancies?

Restoring the Founders' Vision of Religion - Frank DeVito (6/25/2022)
Those who value the legitimate role of religion in our nation's public life, as well as the need to adhere to the original meaning of the Constitution, should not overlook the importance of the Court's decision in Carson v. Makin.

An Originalist Victory - J. Joel Alicea (6/24/2022)
The Supreme Court's Dobbs ruling is a tremendous success for the constitutional theory around which conservatives rallied for nearly half a century.

Supreme Court OVERTURNS Roe v Wade - Libby Emmons (6/24/2022)
The Supreme Court on Friday released a ruling in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. They have overturned Roe v Wade, which legalized abortion at the federal level.

Yes, Biden Is Hiding His Plan To Rig The 2022 Midterm Elections - Mollie Hemingway (6/24/2022)
The White House is refusing to share details about its coordinated efforts to engage in a federal takeover of election administration.

Why the Supreme Court Got It Right In Maine Voucher Case - NBC News/Think (6/23/2022)
The 6-3 decision in Carson v. Makin is an important victory for the constitutional principle that government may not discriminate on the basis of religion.

A Victory for Religious Liberty and Educational Pluralism - Nicole Stelle Garnett (6/23/2022)
Carson is unremarkable. The case reiterates, for the third time in recent years, that the Constitution prohibits the government from refusing to permit religious organizations to participate in programs providing public benefits.

Faith and Freedom Go Together - Star Parker (6/23/2022)
Government is in our lives in a major way, with trillion-dollar deficits and debt the size of our entire economy. And now inflation, which reflects all this. Is there a way out without restoration of religious principle and personal responsibility?

The 5 Stages of Totalitarianism - Walker Larson (6/22/2022)
Fears of a growing totalitarian tendency in the United States have swelled during 2020–2022. But how close are we really to a totalitarian state? How have such regimes come about historically and what are the warning signs?

Repeal the Second Amendment? Uh, No. - Douglas Andrews (6/22/2022)
Can anyone imagine supermajorities in both the House and Senate doing so? That'd be 292 votes in the House and 67 votes in the Senate. And can anyone imagine the citizens of 38 states going along with it?

'Red-Flag' Laws Raise Some Red Flags - Jeff Jacoby (6/21/2022)
Keeping guns from potential mass killers is an obvious and urgent necessity. So is protecting the constitutional and civil liberties of innocent people. Can Congress square that circle?

U.S. Needs to Lose the Sentimentality About the Ukraine War - Michael McKenna (6/20/2022)
NATO is a shell; it is chimerical. Originally designed to protect Germany from Russia, it now only protects the Europeans from having to provide for their own defense.

Has the FBI Become a Threat to Democracy? - Thomas J. Baker (6/19/2022)
Rather than being blessed to have a law enforcement agency as its domestic security agency, is the United States now cursed to have a domestic intelligence organization with police powers? Has a once-great agency now become a threat to our democracy?
