Eric Holder is suing a state police force, because their employment requirements for women are the same as those for men… Whoa. So this is what “progress” looks like, huh?

John Ransom | July 31, 2014

What Obama giveth, Obama can take away, and his power—at least in his own mind—recognizes no borders. You know? Except, of course, the border with Mexico which, he assures us, is secure. And the constitution, which he tells us he’s an expert on.

Mike Shedlock | July 31, 2014

The article's "global warming" slant is of course ridiculous. Yet, the article does expose the hypocrisy of the Obama administration on that subject.

Night Watch | July 31, 2014

Russian media also is heavily biased, but occasionally contains useful factual information. Today it reported that parts of Donetsk received artillery fire from Ukrainian forces.

Charles Payne | July 31, 2014

Yesterday, the rally faded quickly as Europe ratcheted up sanctions against Russia, with America following suit. Make no mistake, this is a high-stakes gambit; there is no guarantee it works, or how long it would take Russia to cry, “Uncle.”

Let me ask you a question: What's the best part of your job?

Peter Morici | July 31, 2014

Stocks may be near record levels but the bull market is not done. Digital technologies permit businesses to use investors’ cash far more efficiently these days, and could easily push up stock prices another 25 percent.

Direct from the Commerce Department, the White House, and the mainstream media to you. GDP comes in at 4% for the second quarter, first quarter revised upward, the consumer’s alive and well and God’s in his heaven all’s right with the world.

Daniel J. Mitchell | July 31, 2014

When major changes occur, especially if they’re bad, people generally will try to understand what happened so they can avoid similar bad events in the future.

Judge Andrew Napolitano | July 31, 2014

It has been well established under the Constitution and throughout our history that the president's job as the chief federal law enforcement officer permits him to put his ideological stamp on the nature of the work done by the executive branch. The courts have characterized this stamp as "discretion."

Obama’s war on coal is getting kicked into overdrive by the EPA. They must be taking notes from Putin’s adventures in Ukraine. Terry Jarrett, former Missouri PUC commissioner, joined the show to talk to John about the EPA’s war on coal.

Down with the billionaires, Obama is saying. Hurray for the Russian state! While we wage war against private persons in Russia, we send cash to the Russian state-- cash used to wage war on Ukraine.

Michael Schaus | July 30, 2014

Putin wants to get the Soviet band back together, and the West’s reaction thus far has been largely lackadaisical. It Seems Putin has everyone in his pocket. Heck, even the good old US of A kinda depends on him to shoot our spy satellites into space.

In order to have credit card debt, one first must have credit. However, some without traditional credit show up as delinquent on account of late utility, medical, or other bills. The key general finding is: Of those with credit files, an astonishing 35% have debt in collections.

According to one credible news analysis and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Israel is methodically reducing the size of the Gaza Strip by 40% by creating a 3 km wide zone in which no buildings will be left standing.

Charles Payne | July 30, 2014

The old poverty pimps and entities with vested interest in stirring the pot and limiting hope are pushing in overdrive these days.

Peter Morici | July 30, 2014

Friday, the Labor Department is expected to report the economy added 235,000 jobs in July, and the unemployment rate remained steady at 6.1 percent, but that hardly tells the story.

Ransom Notes Radio | July 30, 2014

Remember when we didn’t trust the Russians? Yeah… We probably should have held on to that mentality. Why, exactly, are we paying them to prop up our space program? Mark Skousen also joined the program to talk about the long term economic picture.

Daniel J. Mitchell | July 30, 2014

It’s a bad idea when governments demand information on your bank accounts and investments so they can impose economically destructive double taxation. It’s a worse idea when they also demand the right to tax economic activity in other jurisdictions (otherwise known as “worldwide taxation“).

Dr. Ben Carson | July 30, 2014

The Obama administration's recent failures in the foreign-policy arena have only highlighted how far American leadership has fallen in this new century. From the Middle East to Eurasia, it often seems that President Obama is reacting to events instead of trying to shape them. Americans have begun to see his collective failures as an indictment on his presidency, and they long for clarity and purpose from their president.

Companies are fleeing abroad with capital, even as politicians point the finger of blame at institutions; institutions mind you that have a legal responsibility for profitability even if politicians believe themselves to have no legal responsibility at all.

Dave Ramsey | July 29, 2014

Human beings have a 100 percent mortality rate, okay? No one is getting out of this thing alive. You need a will and a full estate plan with specific instructions.

Mike Shedlock | July 29, 2014

Is the British pound overvalued? What about the Euro? The US Dollar? The Yen? Curiously, economists make that case for all of those currencies.

Night Watch | July 29, 2014

Arab monarchies are targets for overthrow by some of the Islamist groups they helped form and finance, such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Charles Payne | July 29, 2014

We are a nation fueled by consumption, so much so that our economy feeds populations all over the world who are dependent on the insatiable appetite of Americans for the good life.

Daniel J. Mitchell | July 29, 2014

One of the worst things about working in Washington is that it’s so easy to get frustrated about the fact-free nature of political debates.

Ralph Benko | July 29, 2014

Prof. Krugman’s prestige, and the immense influence provided him by the New York Times, gives his opinions enormous political weight. What he writes has impact in liberal, and Democratic, quarters. Yet he by no means is infallible.

Ransom Notes Radio | July 29, 2014

Is a Hillary run for 2016 inevitable? Well… Maybe Republicans should be praying that it is. Heck, the more that woman speaks, the more out of touch she seems to be. Conn Carroll, Managing Editor for Townhall Magazine, joined the show to talk about the phenomenon of Hillary Clinton.

Bill Tatro | July 29, 2014

So the out of work continue to be discounted when the powers to be are striving for full employment.It is very possible that this week we could break 6% unemployment barrier and proclaim we are quickly approaching full employment.

Like you, I'm suspicious of any group of scientists that live in a “kingdom” that can’t even practice general dentistry correctly. Or healthcare. Or, apparently, math.

Mike Shedlock | July 28, 2014

Doudet's main charge is exceptionally poor service. It took numerous complaints to three sets of servers for Doudet to get drinks and an appetizer before her main course arrived.

Shawn Mitchell | July 28, 2014

Some on the Left barely conceal their disdain for the world-changing handiwork of dead white males.

Daniel J. Mitchell | July 28, 2014

As you can see from these excerpts, there’s apparently now a rule in China limiting public officials to no more than three mistresses.

Mark Baisley | July 28, 2014

Mark Udall is a classic example of the methodology by which life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness are being choked out of the American people.

When it comes to the propaganda war, McCain and his primary war-mongering ally (none other than president Obama) are clearly winning! The only difference between the two is McCain is a far bigger war-monger than Obama.
