RICH LOWRY:: The Border-Enforcement Game | RCP

By Rich Lowry - June 18, 2013 -- Congress is boring. It can’t even make new false promises. On border security, it keeps making the same assurances. The Gang of Eight immigration bill, which could well be the signature legislative accomplishment of President Barack Obama’s second term, travels in the well-worn ruts of past immigration promises. The Gang of Eight ... Go To Article

JOHN PODHORETZ:: Composting plan just another load of garbage from Bloomberg the bully – NYPOST

By JOHN PODHORETZ -- Now that Mayor Bloomberg has decided we, all 8 million of us New Yorkers, should all go through our garbage to separate out the biodegradable stuff and “compost” it, the time has come to retire a favorite designation for him.

NRO EDITORS:: Rubio’s Folly, Cont – NRO

By  The Editors It is painful to watch Marco Rubio’s maneuverings on immigration. He is refusing to say whether he will vote “yes” on his own Gang of Eight bill after spending months drafting, defending, and helping shepherd it to the floor. He has supposedly discovered that the enforcement provisions are inadequate, although he has done countless interviews ... Go To Article

THOMAS SOWELL:: The Loss of Trust – Townhall

Amid all the heated cross-currents of debate about the National Security Agency's massive surveillance program, there is a growing distrust of the Obama administration that makes weighing the costs and benefits of the NSA program itself hard to assess. The belated recognition of this administration's contempt for the truth, for the American people and for the ... Go To Article

MARCO RUBIO’S Insider Problem | RealClearPolitics

By Ben Domenech - June 17, 2013 -- What was Marco Rubio sent to Washington to do? The concern among Rubio’s team of the rising chorus of “Marco’s gone Washington” shouldn’t surprise them considering his approach to the gamesmanship of typical Senatorial give and take. The problem is a simple one: Rubio was originally sold to the Republican base as not just a ... Go To Article

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON:: Intervention in Syria Is a Very Bad Idea | National Review Online

Syria is turning out to be a sort of Spanish Civil War of our age, with Hezbollah and Iran playing the role of fascist Italy and Germany, and the Islamic nations and jihadists that of Stalin’s Russia, as the moderates disappear and the messy conflict becomes a proxy war for greater powers, with worse to come. There were always problems for the Obama administration ... Go To Article

CAL THOMAS:: Then what in Syria, Mr. President? | WashEx

Two recent newspaper editorials illustrate the double-mindedness some feel about President Obama's decision to provide small arms and ammunition to Syrian rebels. The Washington Post headlined an editorial: "No time for half-measures: Syria's rebels need a robust intervention from the Obama administration." The New York Times took a more realistic approach: "After ... Go To Article

MISS UTAH vs. Barack Obama and Jay Carney | Power Line

There is an interesting trend toward the Northeast in Miss USA, as last year’s winner (and this year’s Miss Universe) was Olivia Culpo, Miss Rhode Island. But today’s news about the pageant focused less on Miss Brady than on Marissa Powell, Miss Utah. Miss Powell was the third runner-up, but she was deemed to have said something stupid during the question session. ... Go To Article
