The real war on women

It must be admitted. There is a war on women. The Democrats have been screaming about this for years, and they should know. Because the war is their war on women all across the socioeconomic spectrum.

EPA's toxic adventure

Imagine an agency charged with protecting the environment, aptly named the Environmental Protection Agency. Because, you see, we need to protect the environment, and we need a government cudgel with which to do it.

When liberals fail to govern

Most of the talk after the Republican debates last week has been focusing on individual personalities, who seemed presidential (Fiorina), who was angriest (Paul), and funniest (Huckabee). While I still disagree with Chris Christie's policies and general attitude, he did rather well as a focused and steady bureaucratic manager, even when being confronted by the Angriest Candidate in the World, Rand Paul.

The moral terrorism of Planned Parenthood

Like many of you, when I first heard the undercover video of a Planned Parenthood official discussing in a detached and macabre manner the selling of aborted baby parts, I was physically sickened.

Serious questions for a coddled president

There's nothing quite like the look of a jerk whose smug omniscience gets shattered by a singular sound -- that of a reporter asking a serious question. Normally, the only sound President Obama experiences from journalists is the slurping one hears when boots are being licked.

Oregon as America's Greece

As most of the world points,laughs and gives the headshake to Greece over its socialist-driven economic meltdown, Americans don't need to look east to see the scourge of liberal policies. Look west to the state of Oregon, and you'll see our very own fascist chaos wrapped in concern-troll self-righteousness that would make every failed leftist politician blush.

Hillary Clinton spins her wheels

You don't need to be in New York City to notice the Hillary Clown Car is rolling along at full speed. It would, however, be dangerous to underestimate Hillary Clinton, the Democrats' likely nominee for the 2016 presidential contest, but as I've noted several times on Fox News, we are reminded time and again how this woman lost to an unknown, inexperienced lawyer from Chicago in 2008.

Favoring foreign workers over Americans

With another week, we have another example of the immigration system harming American workers. In this case, it's the H1-B visa program, which grants up to 85,000 visas a year, ostensibly to help U.S. companies fill high-tech positions for which, purportedly, no American is suitably educated. These are jobs, companies like Microsoft and Facebook argue, that require such specialization in computer science that they rely on the importation of IT super-hero geniuses. Or something.

Dealing away American sovereignty

The legacy media and the federal bureaucracy are really, really, hoping you'll be distracted by the arrests of soccer executives. And if that's not your speed, they have the drama of federal charges against former House Speaker Dennis Hastert, sparking questions about blackmail, "bad acts" and Mr. Hastert's time as a teacher and wrestling coach in his hometown.

A wrong way to fix failing schools

Last week at the National Summit on Youth Violence Prevention organized by the Department of Education, the Department of Justice and other various federal agencies, Secretary of Education Secretary Arne Duncan did what leftist bureaucrats have done throughout history: announce the dream of supplanting parents with the state by taking control of children "24/7."

Jihadis' demand for self-censorship would spell the end of free expression

Two Islamist terrorists were dead and a police officer wounded in the aftermath of the "Draw Muhammad" cartoon contest in Garland, Texas. Despite what many would like you to think, it wasn't the cartoons presented at this private gathering or the event itself that should concern Americans -- it's the blaming of the victim by many in the media, including some conservative favorites.

How to run a great city into the ground

All around us failed Democratic leadership is insisting on being recognized. As Baltimore, a great American city, teeters on a precipice, media and politicians still tiptoe around the truth, knowing if reality was actually acknowledged, the entire liberal narrative would collapse.

Days after Idaho began performing gay marriages on Oct. 15, Don and Evelyn Knapp declined to marry a same-sex couple. Previously, city officials had said that the Knapps, both of whom are ordained ministers, would be in violation of the law if they refused to officiate a same-sex marriage. (Associated Press)

Courting gay marriage

Gay marriage is upon us because in many cases, voters of 37 states and the District of Colombia are saying, yes, let's recognize the fact that gay people have the same right to be married as heterosexuals.

Liberals and magical thinking

We all know that children think magically, and naturally inhabit a world of fantasy and imagination. It's the perfect place to be when you're a kid. The problem is, adults on the left seem to have decided they deserve to live in that same magical world, where facts and logic and reason just don't exist.

Lifting the covers on ‘Obamoogle’

During this past week as we've been swamped with bad news pouring out of every corner of the globe, it wouldn't be surprising if you missed one of the more shocking revelations about White House actions that would make even Richard Nixon blush.
