    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.

    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)

    Maternity Warden Awaits U.S. Newborn

    Meriam Ibrahim may not be a United States citizen, but she seems to know more about courage than the administration leading them. Three times, the Sudanese mother of two was asked to deny her faith -- and three times she refused. Now, she and her toddler American son and newborn American daughter lie in a bug-infested prison cell -- a victim of ... (more)

    Scrambled Regs Pushed off by IRS

    The Obama administration never met a rule it didn't want to postpone. But last week, the President finally delayed something we can all agree with. Leading up to the midterm elections, most people probably mistook the IRS as the Democrats' party headquarters. From stripping conservatives' tax-exempt status to disproportionately auditing tea party ... (more)

    From Every Patriot Grave

    By Robert Morrison, FRC's Senior Fellow for Policy Studies Abraham Lincoln had no chance to prepare for war. He took the Oath of Office on March 4, 1861. In his Inaugural Address, the new president appealed for peace. He ended with this eloquent paean to patriotism. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may ...

    Internet Gambling Puts Governors at Odds

    Legalizing online gambling is an all or nothing proposition, even the American Gaming Association (AGA) knows this. Yesterday, the industry group representing the nation's casinos decided to withdraw its support of online gambling, citing differences between casino operators. They know from a strictly business perspective, online gambling would ... (more)

    American Silence Has Sudan Impact

    The President's team can hardly afford another scandal, but that's exactly what they'll have on their hands if the U.S. State Department insists on ignoring the plight of an American family in Sudan. For three months, a young Christian wife -- now almost eight and a half months pregnant -- has been shackled in a Sudanese prison on death row. ... (more)
