    A lawsuit filed by Allstate claims that Countrywide misrepresented the risks posed by the bundles of mortgages it sold to investors such as Allstate. Housing prices are sliding again, and there's plenty of blame to go around. Factors include the sluggish recovery, ineffective private and public efforts to prevent foreclosures, suddenly risk-averse lenders and temporary tax credits that generated a short-lived and artificial rally in home sales. But a lawsuit filed last week provides a pointed reminder that the bubble would never have happened had it not been for irresponsible lenders and the feckless investors who kept them awash in...

    ISLAMIST fanatics attacked us and yearn to destroy us. The Muslim civilization of the Middle East has failed comprehensively and will continue to generate violence.

But a rotten core of American extremists is out to make it harder for them. The most repugnant trend in the American shouting match that passes for a debate on the struggle with Islamist terrorism isn't the...

    Congress Checkmates Runaway Courts Congress has invoked its constitutional power of the purse to block renegade federal courts. Before the House recessed last week, Rep. John Hostettler (R-IN) attached to the Commerce, State and Justice appropriations bill an amendment denying any use of federal funds to enforce the U.S. 9th Circuit Court's ruling striking down the Pledge of Allegiance as unconstitutional. The amendment passed 307-119. By a vote of 260-161, the House also approved a second Hostettler amendment barring the federal government from enforcing the 11th Circuit Court's order that Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore remove the Ten Commandments from...
