In a year when some of the most exalted public figures in the United States distinguished themselves by advancing unjust causes or cowardly refusing to seriously resist them, a pregnant mother imprisoned in Sudan with her 18-month old American son set a standard for saintly courage.

This is the dirty secret of the modern Republican Party: For all the talk about grassroots exasperation with the Republican elites, it is the Republican elites who despise the grassroots. Republican elites do not believe in small government; they believe in large government that serves their ends. If given the choice, a few would even select Hillary Clinton as president over Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

It's probably too much to expect that 2015 will be the year that the media achieve political sobriety and speak properly in Obama's presence.
Walter E. Williams | December 23, 2014 | 5:00 AM
Older black people, who were raised in an era when there was far greater discrimination and who faced far fewer opportunities, need to speak out against behavior and excuses that their parents would have never accepted.

God became a man to save us from our sins, which he did finally and completely on the Cross. We commemorate his death and resurrection on Easter, but his suffering on our behalf began much earlier than that. We would do well to remember that at Christmastime, when we celebrate our savior's birth.
Patrick J. Buchanan | December 23, 2014 | 4:52 AM
Here is where the moral culpability of Mayor Bill de Blasio, Attorney General Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and President Obama lies: They gave aid and comfort to the cop-haters and cop-baiters.

“Obama gives the Castro regime in Cuba an undeserved bailout.” Was that a headline from Ronald Reagan’s favorite conservative weekly, Human Events? Or, perhaps a stiff rejoinder from the up-to-the-minute reporting of the Weekly Standard?

Around the world, Jews greet the holiday of Chanukah by lighting one flame. On each successive night of this eight-day festival we add one additional flame, culminating on the eighth night with a fully lit eight-flame menorah.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, in a December 15 memorandum, asserted that "transgendered" persons should be given a special status under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

America doesn't look strong when foreign tyrants kill American movies. And our national media don't distinguish themselves by enabling the viciousness of our enemies.
Patrick J. Buchanan | December 19, 2014 | 5:23 AM
The celebrations in Havana and the sullen silence in Miami tell you all you need to know about who won this round with Castro's Cuba. In JFK's metaphor, Obama traded a horse for a rabbit.
David Limbaugh | December 19, 2014 | 5:21 AM
Do leftists even pretend to be intellectually open and behaviorally tolerant anymore? If they do, will anyone take them seriously?
Michelle Malkin | December 19, 2014 | 5:16 AM
Tall people of all colors (Mrs. Obama is 5-foot-11) often are prevailed upon to reach high on behalf of those of us who are vertically challenged. These are not odious "incidents" of racism between slaves and masters. They're matters of common courtesy between equals.

One of the most perverse consequences of the feverish backroom deals used to get Obamacare past the finish line was the funding formula for the law’s Medicaid expansion, which started with the infamous Cornhusker Kickback, a sweetheart deal for Nebraska alone to get 100 percent federal funding for Medicaid expansion that was used to get then-Senator Ben Nelson’s vote.

Today, the Council of the District of Columbia will consider a bill that could force employers in the nation’s capital to cover elective abortions in their health plans and require even pro-life organizations to hire individuals who oppose their views on abortion.

A last-minute deal on pension reforms thrown into the $1.1 trillion CRomnibus passed by Congress over the weekend has some unions up in arms, while others had lobbied in support. Although far short of a cure-all, these reforms should reduce the chances of a taxpayer bailout.

President Barack Obama used negotiations over a couple of imprisoned Americans to refashion the entire U.S.-Cuba relationship. He aims to reopen the embassy, relax trade and travel restrictions, and improve communication systems.
James M. Roberts | December 18, 2014 | 11:16 AM
President Barack Obama’s unilateral decision to normalize relations with Cuba and lift the U.S. embargo without the approval of Congress may play well on the international left and help the Castro regime to maintain control of the country, the economy, and all levers of power for years to come, but it will do nothing to improve the lives of ordinary Cubans.

In response to this Islamist terror attack on a civilian hub in the center of their city, Australians all over the country took action: They tweeted with the hashtag #illridewithyou.
H. Sterling Burnett | December 18, 2014 | 9:28 AM
The data may show Earth experienced its hottest year on record in 2014, but that would not be proof humans are causing global warming. It wouldn’t even prove the year was the hottest on record, or even particularly hot.
