I know there is a lot going on in the world, but I want to spend today on the concept known as Net Neutrality.

At Ohio State University, to avoid being guilty of “sexual assault” or “sexual violence,” you and your partner now apparently have to agree on the reason WHY you are making out or having sex.

In 2009, Rush Limbaugh angered the American left when he said, "I hope he fails," in response to a media query on his hopes for the Obama Presidency. The reply threw the liberal media out of kilter for some time, some of them noting that if Limbaugh hoped Obama failed, it meant that he wanted America to fail.

The Obama administration has claimed that despite recurring language in the Obamacare law limiting tax credits to people who buy insurance on an “exchange established by the state,” such taxpayer subsidies are also available to people who buy insurance on the federal exchange, Healthcare.gov.

Obamacare, as its advocates increasingly point out, has succeeded in expanding the number of Americans with insurance. Even though this achievement came at enormous cost, still leaves millions of Americans uninsured, and dumped millions more into Medicaid, this is still one of the few “successes” that the health-care law can claim.

The strategy that President Obama laid out Wednesday night to "degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL," is incoherent, inconsistent and, ultimately, non-credible. Among all the nations involved here, the least threatened is the United States.

David Limbaugh has written a book that departs dramatically from his recent tomes on the worst excesses of the Obama presidency. "Jesus On Trial: A Lawyer Affirms the Truth of the Gospel" explores his journey of faith, from believer to non-believer and back. A book of this nature should be applauded. But many won't.

Jesus' apostles and other disciples were willing to die for him. But so what? Haven't the followers of other religious leaders and even some political leaders been willing to die for them, as well? What makes Jesus' followers so unique in this regard?

"If you see something, say something." That's what our homeland security apparatchiks incessantly preach. But 13 years after the 9/11 attacks, the freedom to warn is in danger, and vigilant whistleblowers are under fire.

How did we get to the point that a forum on an issue (or even a debate) means that most of the speakers are unqualified to speak about it? Two examples just came my way this week, which suggests that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and funded friends are working overtime and need a vacation to deepen their conceptual understanding of the kind of people who can contribute to a forum on Common Core’s mathematics standards.

Rigid “consent” requirements are for legally-binding contracts, not casual interaction among intimates.

On Wednesday, President Obama addressed the nation concerning an uptick of action against the Islamic State, otherwise known as ISIS or ISIL. It was a short address that also was short on surprises.

How would a law that makes employers afraid to give raises benefit women?!

It was a pleasant day for early September in the Tennessee midlands, where the temperatures can range in the high 80s at this time of year. Hazel and myself had gone to the Tennessee
James Madison | September 11, 2014 | 12:14 PM
Regarding the power to declare war, Congress, not the President, “alone can declare [war],” because the executive branch is “the branch of power most interested in war, & most prone to it,” declared James Madison.
Louis Fisher | September 11, 2014 | 9:29 AM
President Obama, Wednesday night, provided further details on his plans to meet the challenge of ISIS, relying on a broad coalition of partners to degrade and destroy the Islamic State.
Curtis Kalin | September 11, 2014 | 9:13 AM
Even thirteen years after 9/11, I get an uneasy feeling on this day. I walk around slightly more somber and reserved.

Barack Obama pledged to radically transform America when he took office. He didn't stop at America. President Obama's greatest legacy may be the radical reshaping of the global map.

Not only will this speech not accomplish whatever the White House was hoping for, but it now puts all those shaky Democrats running for public office - especially the U.S. Senate - in a position to have to answer questions like "Will [would] you vote for the President's plan?" without having any idea what that plan actually entails.

It is amazing the degree to which the media can politicize — always from a leftist perspective — just about anything in the news.No matter what the issue, there's always the spin, especially in the "analysis" reports where "journalists" go in screech advocacy mode while projecting a sober, dispassionate evaluation.
