Rockets fired from Gaza civilian area at Israel

How do you fight an enemy that is willing—nay, eager—to force you to kill its children even if you don’t want to?

That’s the situation Israel faces against Hamas. It’s the situation we face against Islamist terrorists, too, because they use such techniques as one of their primary tools, and the...

The Democratic Party creates its coalition by catering to a diverse group of ethnic interest groups, and sometimes the special interests of those special interest groups clash.

In the following clip where people are talking about the border problems, we see a microcosm of the competing groups, as well as rifts within...

Hillary Clinton is a lawyer, and a smart one at that. So she knows better than this statement she made about the Hobby Lobby SCOTUS decision:

It’s very troubling that a salesclerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service through her...

Isn’t this wonderful?

More than half of privately insured women are getting free birth control under President Barack Obama’s health law, a major coverage shift that’s likely to advance.

The Fourth of July is also called Independence Day.

“Independence”—as in “The Declaration of Independence”—meant that we had severed our ties with England and were autonomous, although it took many long years of struggle before we established our own government and its Constitution.

How did the Supreme Court manage to agree unanimously that police must obtain a warrant before searching cellphones, yet split on whether employers must offer contraception as part of their health care plans?

My explanation, slightly crude...

What will be America’s reaction to the killing of the three kidnapped Israeli teenagers?

We already know Obama’s reaction: the mouthing of platitudes, urging restraint, and a plea for both sides to work together to find the perpetrators. Yes, you heard that right:

Why has the mainstream media been so silent about the scandals in which the Obama administration has become embroiled?

From Roger L. Simon at Pajamas Media:

Obama is beside the point. They [the liberal media] don’t even like Obama anymore. Nothing could be more obvious. Almost nobody does. But they won’t...

The federal government of the United States has jurisdiction over the border problem but is doing nothing to stop it and might in fact be encouraging it.

No, George Bush hasn’t actually commented on present events in Iraq, probably because he doesn’t believe it’s helpful for ex-presidents to criticize their successors.

But he already described the situation back in 2007, when he gave a speech explaining why he was vetoing a bill passed by the Democratic Congress which would...
