Michelle Malkin: The Most Transparent Administration Ever, LOL – Sun, sun, sun, here it comes. Welcome to the Summer of Belated Epiphanies. Media lapdogs are finally, finally arriving at the conclusion that maybe this isn’t the most transparent administration in world history, after all. When Obama vowed that “transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency,” he didn’t mean “touchstones.” He meant sinkholes.
Walter Williams: Understanding Liberals and Progressives – In order to understand the liberal and progressive agenda, one must know something about their world vision and values. According to “Earthbound,” a collection of essays on environmental ethics, William Aiken said: “Massive human diebacks would be good. It is our duty to cause them. It is our species’ duty, relative to the whole, to eliminate 90 percent of our numbers.”
Armstrong Williams: College Has Become a Scam in America – We have all heard the horror stories of crippling student debt and graduates that are lucky to land minimum wage retail jobs. But one part of the college scam that is not receiving much attention is the admissions process. No longer are good grades and good test scores enough to get you into a desirable university. No, it takes greater resources, time, and existential insight. These new conditions favor the affluent and unscrupulous.
Samuel Rodriguez: Religious Liberty and Complacent Christianity – We must embrace one simple truth: as people of faith, we cannot be silent while our sacred liberty lies threatened. We cannot be silent while Billy and Franklin Graham suffer the wrath of Uncle Sam via the conduit of an IRS audit for the simple act of articulating biblical truth. We cannot be silent while our Catholic brothers and sisters pay the penalty of non- compliance with a health care mandate obligating the rendering of services that run counter to the very ethos centered around the sacredness of life – in and out of the womb.
Lenny McCallister: Ending Gun Violence with Actual Corrective Measures, not Corroding Gun Rights – The best way to control violence is not by controlling legal guns – it is by actively and successfully encouraging economic growth in areas most impacted by illegal guns and violence in America. The best way to keep people from using guns illegally to perpetrate violence is to establish more pathways to better pursuits: jobs, careers, and stability.
Anthony Bradley: G8 Summit Protests Sponsored by Capitalism – Among the oddities in the protest movements is the glaring fact that the only reason the group is even able to organize their protests is because of the success of capitalism and international trade. We should all be encouraging the G8 countries to keep their governments from interfering in global markets for the sake of the common good.
Gregory Kane: Justice Caught Up with Kermit Gosnell, Not a Lynch Mob – Jack McMahon [Gosnell's defense attorney], apparently believing a predominantly black jury would be susceptible to some not-very-subtle race baiting, decided to whip out the race card during the Gosnell trial. “This is a targeted, elitist and racist prosecution of a doctor who’s done nothing but give (back) to the poor and the people of West Philadelphia,” McMahon said, according to news reports. “It’s a prosecutorial lynching of Dr. Kermit Gosnell.” Elitist. Racist. Prosecutorial lynching. Never has the race card been played so outrageously.
Lauren Enriquez: Meet Beverly Hills Late-Term Abortion Doc Dr. Josepha Seletz – With the Kermit Gosnell trial bringing the issue of late-term abortion to the forefront of the life debate lately, a lot of new attention focused on late-term abortionists. Now that the Gosnell monstrosities have come to light nationwide, late-term abortionists can prepare to receive more scrutiny than ever before.
Charles Payne: In Real Life Tortoises Sleep and Eat All Day – The stock market this year has been both the tortoise and the hare. Yet, when the worst of both are presented at the same time, the market has several shaky moments.
