Katie Kieffer: Only Obama Will Shut Down Gov't

Never accept their premise.  Government shutdowns are not cancer and today I’ll show why we must stop taking the bait. Indeed, I’ll show why we will lose elections if we are unwilling to shut down the government in order to protect human life and reform immigration policy. CNN’s Dana Bash did not speak much during last week’s        ... MORE

Amber Phillips: Experts Say Government Shutdown Likely

The real thing is too much to ask for. In America, you can't legally bet on political outcomes (at least not yet). But if you could, we'd advise you to put some money on the government shutting down on Oct. 1. As Congress gets back to work this week, it's facing a nearly unprecedented number of deadlines and political dramas. The government needs  ... MORE

John Stossel: Look Back In Liberty 2013

This wasn't a great year for liberty.            A few disasters that government caused:  Obamacare. It was supposed to "bend the cost curve" downward. The central planners had lots of time to perfect their scheme. For a generation, the brightest left-wing wonks focused on health care policy. The result? Soviet-style consumer service   ... MORE

John Stossel: Shutdown Theater

This is where you come in.      Government wants you to play a role in the "shutdown" of the federal government. Your role is to panic. Republicans and Democrats both assume that shutting some government is a terrible thing. The press concurs. "Shutdown threatens fragile economy," warns Politico. "Federal workers turn to prayer,"   ... MORE

L. Brent Bozell: The Ministry Of Confusion

Observations on official tail-chasing.       I can think of one reason to end the federal shutdown: There are a lot of stupid people now roaming the streets. The Feds, however, do not have a monopoly on idiocy. Bureaucratic bumbling can be found wherever there's large government, even on the state, and yes, on the county level.  ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Who Shut Down The Government?

This is not complicated.        Even when it comes to something as basic, and apparently as simple and straightforward, as the question of who shut down the federal government, there are diametrically opposite answers, depending on whether you talk to Democrats or to Republicans. There is really nothing complicated about the facts.           ... MORE

Government Shutdown Or Not, The NSA Is Still Spying

by Gene Healy.        Bad news for pandaphiles: The National Zoo's “PandaCam” will go dark during a government shutdown. However, the federal government’s power to keep an eye on the American people will continue to grow — it’s an “essential service,” apparently. Sunday brought yet another revelation from former National Security Agency      ... MORE
