    Brat Wins, GOP Fears the Wurst

    Dave Brat may teach economics, but yesterday, he gave Republicans a lesson in civics. The longtime conservative professor, whose Wikipedia entry was just two sentences before Tuesday, made history last night, knocking out the House Majority Leader in a primary for the first time in American history. It was a Dave versus Goliath moment for the ... (more)

    The United States Does Not Negotiate... with Congress

    Americans have gotten the raw end of a lot of Barack Obama deals -- but the Bowe Bergdahl swap could literally be the most explosive yet. With five of the world's top terrorists on a "work release" program in Qatar, voters see the swap as the ticking time bomb it is. President Obama, who seemed to show some remorse for the "oversight" of breaking ... (more)

    Under Crabb, Democracy a Lost Claws

    While Americans are glued to the story of one high-profile deserter, the courts seem packed with them -- lawless judges eager to walk away from the Constitution and the oath they swore to uphold it. Unfortunately, the country is all too familiar with one of those activists, U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb, who's been tied to the National Day of ... (more)

    'They Left the Vivid Air Signed with Their Honor'

    By FRC Senior Fellow Bob Morrison There's a famous photograph of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower talking with the men of the 101st Airborne Division in the hours before D-Day. Eisenhower had already set in motion the vast machinery of the greatest invasion in history -- issuing hundreds of orders that would send tens of thousands of men and a vast ... (more)

    The Bible Verses Planned Parenthood

    Women are used to Planned Parenthood preying on them -- but praying on them? That's a new approach altogether. After a string of celebrity endorsements, Planned Parenthood insists it got the ultimate one: God's. Obviously, Cecile Richards's group is always looking for new ways to justify abortion. But the Bible? That's a step too far, even for ... (more)

    Grassley Protects Constitutional Turf

    If Democrats don't know basic history, should they really be trying to rewrite it? That's a question some people wondered yesterday after Senator Chuck Schumer's (D-N.Y.) primetime gaffe. The Harvard-educated agitator, one of 42 liberals trying to scrap the First Amendment, argued for his party's amendment by suggesting that the author of it would ... (more)

    Bowe Ties Obama to another Foreign Policy Blunder

    Stuck in a cycle of scandals, President Obama was ready to do anything to change the conversation -- including, we now know, unleashing five of the world's most deadly terrorists on the rest of society. Four days into the administration's large-scale distraction, the White House is probably wishing it were still answering questions about the VA. ... (more)

    (Sex) Change We Can Believe In?

    Taxpayer-funded sex changes: They aren't just for traitors and illegal immigrants anymore! While the rest of the media was racing from story to story over the weekend, HHS quietly tried to disguise the reversal of a 33-year-old coverage ban on gender reassignment surgery. In a 48-hour span that saw the resignation of the VA chief and the ... (more)

    Liable in Libya?

    From day one, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) has been clear about his role as head of the House's special committee on Benghazi. "I want this to transcend politics," he said. That's a tall order in this chamber, where Democrats are looking at every order of business as a possible campaign angle, hoping to catch Republicans at a vulnerable point and spin ... (more)

    The Forced Amendment: Dems Push for Constitutional Re-Do

    Senator Chuck Schumer is a lot of things -- but James Madison, he is not. Don't tell that to the New York Democrat, who, along with Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.), thinks he understands freedom better than the author of America's Bill of Rights. Two hundred twenty-three years after the First Amendment went into effect, Senate liberals are trying to put ... (more)
