FEULNER: Cuban missile crisis, 50 years later

If the phrase "missile gap" rings a bell, you probably remember one of the most frightening periods of the Cold War era: when the United States and Soviet Russia, 50 years ago this week, came perilously close to launching World War III. Published October 15, 2012

FEULNER: Michigan unions' Election Day pushback

It sounds so innocuous -- the Protect Our Jobs amendment. At a time of high unemployment, who wouldn't find such a concept appealing? So union leaders are pulling out all the stops to get this measure, better known as Proposal 2, approved by Michigan's voters on Election Day. Published October 8, 2012

FEULNER: Marriage at risk in America

"Marriage is a wonderful institution," H.L. Mencken once quipped, "but who would want to live in an institution?" Great line. But in the real world, the more we learn about marriage, the more we realize how vital it is. Published October 1, 2012

FEULNER: Restoring respect for the Constitution

John Adams got everything right except the date. "The Second Day of July 1776," he wrote to his wife, "ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with [Shows], Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more."

FEULNER: For homeland security, it’s bureaucracy as usual

On Sept. 10, 2001, I flew back to Washington from Frankfurt, Germany, with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. We discussed a host of domestic and foreign policy issues before landing at Washington Dulles International Airport on that bright, crisp day. Published September 11, 2012

FEULNER: Economic recovery in name only

So how's the economic recovery treating you? For many Americans, the answer is, not well. In fact, some may ask: What recovery? Published September 4, 2012

FEULNER: Teachers unions' pressure is failing

Hearing teachers unions complain about extending school choice to American families is nothing new. They have been spreading misinformation about efforts to break up their monopoly on education for years. With millions of students going back to school, we can, unfortunately, expect them to turn up the volume. Published August 27, 2012

FEULNER: America is exceptional

Ask someone to describe what sets America apart from the rest of the world and the word "equality" almost surely will come up. Published August 20, 2012

FEULNER: Furor over Fast and Furious

U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. may show up on "Jeopardy!" one of these days. No, not as a contestant -- as an answer. The clue: "He's the first attorney general in U.S. history to be held in contempt of Congress." The answer: "Who is Eric Holder?" Published August 6, 2012

FEULNER: Clucks of disapproval

Dan Cathy could have saved his company, Chick-fil-A, a lot of trouble. All he had to do was keep his views about family to himself. Published July 30, 2012

Illustration: Juggling Dodd-Frank's mess by Alexander Hunter for The Washington Times

FEULNER: Dodd-Frank: Dangerous dead end

It's been two years since President Obama signed the Wall Street-reform bill that has come to be known as Dodd-Frank. Has it succeeded in creating "safer and more modern rules of the road for the financial industry," as Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner claims? Published July 16, 2012

FEULNER: Courage to act

When we Americans celebrate the Fourth of July, what word comes readily to mind? Freedom - and rightly so. But you can't have freedom without other virtues. Published July 2, 2012

FEULNER: Moral case for freedom

Conservatives, beware: You can have reams of information, piles of studies and folders of charts at your fingertips. And you can still lose the debate. Published June 25, 2012

Illustration Union Bailout by John Camejo for The Washington Times

FEULNER: Obama's union bailout

We all know how the Obama administration likes to portray the auto bailout: A generous infusion of money enabled the government to save General Motors and Chrysler. Jobs that otherwise would have disappeared were rescued by this taxpayer-funded largesse. Published June 18, 2012

FEULNER: 'The American Spirit'

Are America's best days behind her? Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel laureate in economics, seems to think so. "The American dream is a myth," he writes in a recent column. In a new USA Today/Gallup poll, nearly 6 in 10 disagreed with the idea that the next generation will live better than their parents do. Published June 11, 2012

FEULNER: Growing funds for farms

Get ready to hear about the family farm. It's time, once again, for Congress to plow through a renewal of the nation's agricultural policy. Published June 4, 2012

Illustration Obama's Commandments by John Camejo for The Washington Times

FEULNER: Unconscionable mandate

"We have tried negotiation with the [Obama] administration and legislation with the Congress - and we'll keep at it - but there's still no fix. Time is running out." Published May 31, 2012
