Scalia Was Right — Again - Rich Lowry (5/10/2022)
Justice Antonin Scalia was among the most prescient Supreme Court justices in American history, and the firestorm over the leak of Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion overturning Roe is a reminder of it.

Making Sense of the Student Loan Scam - Brian Mark Weber (5/9/2022)
The idea that the president can simply wipe out student debt is a fantasy, mainly designed to give false hope to young voters whom they hope will be motivated to vote "D" on November 8. But polls currently show that Biden is losing this key demographic.

A Shocking Assault on the Supreme Court - Rich Lowry (5/8/2022)
The Supreme Court's loyalty isn't to Roe but to the Constitution, and it can show it by issuing the Alito opinion that its critics want to foil by any means necessary.

Propaganda American style - Cal Thomas (5/7/2022)
Biden's new office should be considered a ministry of the worst kind of propaganda. It will likely focus on censoring or denying anything that makes the Biden administration and Democrats look any worse than they already do.

Students Must Take Responsibility for Their Debt - Star Parker (5/6/2022)
Just as inflation shows that the costs of fiscal irresponsibility cannot be hidden, so the costs of teaching our youth that personal responsibility is irrelevant cannot be hidden. It manifests in the destructive behavior we see now.

The Age of the Absurd - Dennis Prager (5/5/2022)
The West has gone through many eras — the so-called Dark Ages, the Renaissance, the Age of Reason, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Age and the Post-Modern. The present era is the Age of the Absurd.

When the Issue Is Killing Children, What's a Little Leak? - Kevin McCullough (5/4/2022)
There can be little doubt that the shocking, unprecedented leak of a draft opinion of the Supreme Court Monday night broke new barriers. Yet in all the handwringing on social media since, the only question worth asking is "why was it done?"

Confessions of a Conspiracy Theorist - Sohrab Ahmari (5/3/2022)
By the Times' standards, any number of iconic philosophers and serious social and political theorists must now be treated as frothing conspiracy theorists.

Three Cheers for Arizona State Rep. Jake Hoffman - Everett Piper (5/2/2022)
There is nothing more sacred than the innocence of a child. Yet today (and increasingly over the last 20 years), government-run schools have adopted a curriculum designed to sexualize our children, beginning as young as kindergarten.

Biden's Ministry of Truth - David Harsanyi (5/1/2022)
t is by any liberal ideal of open discourse preferable to allow lies to seep into the information stream than to allow a panel nomenklatura to start dictating the veracity of what we read and hear.

Win the Culture War By Shrinking the Government - Pete Kasperowicz (4/30/2022)
Republicans are about to take control of Congress because the Biden administration has wormed its way into every aspect of our lives. People have had enough.

'Open Borders' Biden Is Remaking America - Pat Buchanan (4/29/2022)
What do these endless thousands of migrants at the southern gates of our country bring with them? Their first act on the road to residency and eventual citizenship in this country is to break the laws of the United States by breaking into our country.

Free At Last (Until the Next Time) - Cal Thomas (4/28/2022)
The government hates giving up power over its citizens. That's probably why the CDC tried to extend the mask mandate for public transportation an additional 15 days.

The Biden Regime Is Wrecking America - Oliver North and David L. Goetsch (4/27/2022)
Since day one of his presidency, Biden and his socialist puppet masters have tried to deflect blame from themselves to others for major problems they created for the American people.

Student Loan Relief: Proceed With Caution - The Altoona Mirror (4/26/2022)
Those former students should be forever grateful for having had the opportunity to grow up in a free nation with abundant financial resources — abundant financial resources that enabled them to get a college degree.

Freedom Is the Essence of American Exceptionalism - Bob Luddy (4/25/2022)
President Joe Biden has continuously stated that "climate change" is the highest priority of his administration, fueled by Build Back Better spending. We are witnessing the disastrous impacts that establishing the wrong priorities can have.

Do No Harm, Joe Biden - David Harsanyi (4/24/2022)
Candidate Joe Biden promised to solve our problems and restore faith in the American government. Today, he is one of the least popular presidents in history.

Let Disney Be an Example - Rich Lowry (4/23/2022)
Like so many companies before, Disney calculated the risk/reward of gratuitously taking up a left-wing political and cultural fight and considered it all reward, no risk. The Florida legislature decided to convince it that it was wrong.

'Putin's Price Hike' Is Just the Latest Biden Inflation Myth - Jeff Jacoby (4/22/2022)
From the earliest days of his presidency, Biden was warned that the massive new outlays he was pushing for, beginning with the $2 trillion American Rescue Plan, were likely to send consumer prices soaring.

Can Biden buy votes with student debt relief? - Byron York (4/21/2022)
Biden's handling of student debt is "galactically stupid," in the words of Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former head of the Congressional Budget Office.

Biden's Welcome Program for Illegal Immigrants - Betsy McCaughey (4/20/2022)
Americans are generous people. But they have to provide for their own kids and neighbors first. Without warning, Biden is flying migrants into communities under the cover of night and expecting taxpayers to care for them.

Disney vs Democracy - Brendan O'Neill (4/19/2022)
The modern left moans constantly about the pollution of the political sphere by business interests and big donations, and yet it is more than happy to call on unaccountable corporations to slap down democratic laws it doesn't like.

What the Left Has Done to Women - Dennis Prager (4/18/2022)
The Left ruins everything it touches. There is no exception. From universities to high schools and now including even elementary schools, to late-night TV, to sports, to the arts and, increasingly, science, the Left is a destruction machine.

Musk Offer Proves How Elites Are Terrified of Free Speech - Tom Slater (4/17/2022)
We stand here on the edge of tyranny… Elon Musk wants to buy Twitter. That, roughly speaking, has been the commentariat reaction in recent days as the world's richest man has launched a takeover attempt of the social-media giant.

The Biden Administration Is Set to Make the Border Crisis Worse - Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) (4/16/2022)
Title 42 authority allows the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to quickly expel illegal migrants encountered at our southern border due to threats of "communicable diseases." It's truthfully one more arrow in the border enforcement quiver.

The Left, Children and Sex - Laura Hollis (4/15/2022)
On just about every aspect of sexuality, the Left has it wrong. Their preferred policies have already done incredible amounts of individual, familial and societal damage, and yet they keep pushing for more — and getting away with it.

Yes, It's Biden's Inflation - Ben Shapiro (4/14/2022)
With vaccines available and people going back to work, the Biden administration had a responsibility to leave the economy alone. Instead, Biden insisted on reshaping the economy according to his whim.

Politics Drive Agendas to Turn Back Clock - Steve Kleiner (4/13/2022)
If you accept the propaganda that a nation, race, gender or ethnicity of today has to bear the guilt of and thus apologize for and take responsibility for the actions of others in the past, where does it end?

America's 'Other Mother' Is a Prostitute - Everett Piper (4/12/2022)
You can commit a whole host of sins against a friend or foe that will receive little more than a shrug of indifference, but if you suggest their mother is a prostitute, the gloves will come off. So it is with "alma mater" -- the education system.

Pro-Crime Party Nominates a Justice - Ann Coulter (4/11/2022)
Presidents are entitled to nominate Supreme Court justices who represent their party and its values. Using that as our guide, President Joe Biden picked the Democrats' perfect Supreme Court justice: Ketanji Brown Jackson.

The Most Radical Abortion Law in the Nation - David Harsanyi (4/10/2022)
Colorado's new law doesn't merely allow abortion of viable babies, for any reason, until crowning; it makes eugenic arguments about the "social, moral, and economic benefits" of not having children, as if any law or regulation compels anyone to do

Where Liberals Look to Divide: Culture, COVID-19 and the Constitution - Scott Walker (4/9/2022)
Culture, COVID-19, and the Constitution. These are three of the many areas where liberals want to divide America. In my opinion, they are part of a larger plan to impose Marxism on Americans.

Is Global 'Democracy' America's Mission? - Pat Buchanan (4/8/2022)
If whether other nations are democratic or autocratic is the measure by which we judge America's success, this must lead invariably to U.S. interference in the internal affairs of those nations not our own.

Ideology and Disunion - William S. Lind (4/7/2022)
For the first time since the 1850s, discussion of secession is spreading. There is even talk of civil war. What is driving such a strange development in American politics? An attempt to transform this country into an ideological state.

Joe Biden's Reversal On Sexual Exposure For Kids - Rachel Bovard (4/6/2022)
In 1994, Joe Biden voted for an amendment that was far more draconian than he now claims Florida's child protection law to be.

J6 Committee Seeks To Criminalize Republican Fundraising - Molly Hemingway (4/5/2022)
There are no principles at stake for the J6 Committee. Getting rid of the pesky limits on their power is the only thing on the line, and they'll do whatever they can to remove those, including criminalizing their political opponents.

Reflections on Slavery and the Constitution - Mark W. Fowler (4/4/2022)
It is fashionable now among certain leftists to condemn not only the Constitution but also our entire society as racist and the Founding Fathers as unenlightened bigots for owning slaves.

History Should Be Our Guide in Ukraine - Victor Davis Hanson (4/3/2022)
Lots of Westerners are calling for NATO aircraft to establish a no-fly zone above Ukraine to stop Russian bombing of Ukrainian cities. That is a terrible idea. Russian planes can still launch missiles from the nearby airspace of Russia and Belarus.

Renewable Failure - John Stossel (4/2/2022)
The "Greens" promise renewables, solar and wind power, will replace fossil fuels. After all, the wind and sun are free, and they don't pollute! Oops.

Team Biden's Strategic Plan to Erase Womanhood - Bethany Kozma and Lauren Baldwin (4/1/2022)
Mr. Biden, you are right that we need to promote women and girls, but sadly, you are going about it all the wrong ways. Let hard work, fair competition and biological truth prevail in the pool, on the field … and everywhere across America.

I'm Not a Biologist - Declan Leary (3/31/2022)
Just like the question "What is a woman?", "When does life begin?" is not purely biological. It is inseparable from the question of personhood—of when a human being is recognized as such in the eyes of the law and his fellow man.

The Dems' Student Loan Forgiveness Scheme - Brian Mark Weber (3/30/2022)
Forget the students who've done the right thing and made good on their loans without whining for help. Doubtful that they'll ever be reimbursed, but students who never had any intention of paying off their loans might well be rewarded.

Obama's Third Term and the Destruction of the American Polity - E. Jeffrey Ludwig (3/29/2022)
The paradigm of seeking a balance between the federal government and states began to cave during the Obama years. Now, under Biden, the abandonment of the federalism paradigm is picking up steam.

Lia Thomas and Rachel Levine Are Men - Michael McKenna (3/28/2022)
Objective, measurable reality is the foundation of science, engineering, medicine and pretty much all discoveries of the physical world. Objective, measurable reality, as expressed through the collection and analysis of data.

At-Will Federal Employment: The Original Vision for Civil Service - James Sherk (3/27/2022)
Current procedures make removing federal employees prohibitively difficult. It currently takes six months to a year to remove a poor performer — followed by appeals.

Guns, Babies and the USA - Erick Erickson (3/26/2022)
There is a lesson here for the pro-life movement. If Roe v. Wade ends, pro-life groups will still have work to do for the culture of life. But some may need to declare victory and wind down lest they drift into perpetual grift like some gun groups.

The Issue of Free Speech Versus Sedition - David Keene (3/25/2022)
We have a country that not only recognizes the right to disagree with governmental policies even in wartime but thrives because we as a people have always valued the right to debate and dissent as the most effective way to arrive at the truth.

Some Think We Need a New, More Intrusive Census - Jazz Shaw (3/24/2022)
The results of the 2020 census have finally been compiled. Not everyone is happy with the results, however. In fact, some social justice advocates are quite upset. Claims of undercounting minorities beg the question: compared to what?

Rediscovering State Constitutions - Kevin Frazier (3/23/2022)
State constitutions provide residents in all 50 states "with a fully independent source of protection of fundamental rights and liberties," according to former New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Morris Pashman.

A Great Reset Is Already Underway in Utah - G. Murphy Donovan (3/22/2022)
No Congress and no citizen ever voted for the Bluffdale Data Center (AKA Bumblehive) or metadata collection. So much for democracy. That reset, that paradigm shift flew under the radar and out of the smoke and the opportunism generated by 9/11.
