Erick Erickson Erick Erickson: August Arrives

Sextili became August eight years after the birth of Christ to honor Emperor Augustus. While August may have worked out well for Augustus, for American politicians August tends to be a month of scandal and trouble.

Victor Davis Hanson Victor Davis Hanson: Obama and the Road Not Taken

The Obama administration often denies any responsibility for the current global chaos or claims that it erupted spontaneously. Yet most of the mess was caused by, or made worse by, growing U.S. indifference and paralysis.

?Democrats are getting desperate.

Larry Elder Larry Elder: Father of Obamacare Makes a "Speak-O"

Last week, by 2-1 vote, a Washington, D.C., appellate panel ruled that the Obama administration unlawfully changed Obamacare. Meanwhile, on the same day, on the same question, a panel from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the other way. This issue is headed for the Supreme Court.

Michele Bachmann Michele Bachmann: What I Saw at the U.S.-Mexico Border

This past weekend I did what President Obama refused to do during his recent trip to Texas—I visited the U.S-Mexico border.

Judge Andrew Napolitano Judge Andrew Napolitano: Is the President Incompetent or Lawless?

The courts have characterized this stamp as "discretion."

John Ransom John Ransom: Obama's War on Billionaires

What Obama giveth, Obama can take away, and his power—at least in his own mind—recognizes no borders. You know? Except, of course, the border with Mexico which, he assures us, is secure. And the constitution, which he tells us he’s an expert on.

Cal  Thomas Cal Thomas: WWI, the Not So Great War

World War I began as most wars do with patriotic fervor and predictions of a quick end. It lasted four years.

Debra J. Saunders Debra J. Saunders: Obama's Playbook: Blame Bush and Then Congress

In June, President Barack Obama sent a letter to Congress asking for help to address the surge of illegal crossings at the Texas-Mexico border. Among other items, Obama asked Congress to grant him the legal authority "to exercise discretion in processing the return and removal of unaccompanied minor children from non-contiguous countries like Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador."

Matt Towery Matt Towery: Administration's Bias Against Israel Obvious

With every word spoken and every roll of his eyes, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry makes it clear that the Obama administration is no fan of Israel. So why is it that media will not call the White House on this major shift in American foreign policy?

Paul Greenberg Paul Greenberg: The Beauty of Blight

I can understand why Mr. William Widmer's first sight of Pine Bluff caught his artist's eye. "It was a clear, crisp Southern winter day," he recalls, "and downtown was still and vacant. That first walk, the light was perfect down Main Street."

Steve Chapman Steve Chapman: Bad Policies Are Their Own Worst Enemy

Newspaper editorials rarely make news -- I've been writing them for a long time, and, believe me, I know -- but one did the other day, when The New York Times came out for legalization of marijuana. It was an agreeable development for anyone who, like me, believes in letting people live their own lives, even if they do it badly. But its significance is much bigger than that.

Emmett Tyrrell Emmett Tyrrell: Why Exposes of the Clintons Fail

For some reason the scandals that these books reveal never sinks into the American mind. Today, despite Bill Clinton's public record of shoddy financial deals, brutal politics and endless abuse of women, he is the most beloved of recent presidents.

Ransom Notes Radio Ransom Notes Radio: Americans Ask for Ceasefire in Obama’s War on Coal

Obama’s war on coal is getting kicked into overdrive by the EPA. They must be taking notes from Putin’s adventures in Ukraine. Terry Jarrett, former Missouri PUC commissioner, joined the show to talk to John about the EPA’s war on coal.

Bob Goldman Bob Goldman: The Meaning of Meaningless

Let me ask you a question: What's the best part of your job?

Charles Payne Charles Payne: Russian Sanctions Chill Market

Yesterday, the rally faded quickly as Europe ratcheted up sanctions against Russia, with America following suit. Make no mistake, this is a high-stakes gambit; there is no guarantee it works, or how long it would take Russia to cry, “Uncle.”

Larry Provost Larry Provost: Confessions of a Former Liberal: 2nd Amendment is Pro Woman

I was never a big fan of weapons, until I got married and moved South. Thank God I escaped Leftist Stockholm Syndrome.
