  • Southern Poverty Law Center places Dr. Ben Carson on its extremist watch list

    The Southern Poverty Law Center has descended to the level of self-parody (though it has a lot of company on the left) with its posting of Dr. Ben Carson on its “extremist files” list. Dr. Carson, a world-renowned brain surgeon, has served as inspiration for generations of African-Americans, and was portrayed on screen by Cuba Gooding in the movie version of his autobiography Gifted Hands. But to SPLC, desperate to find targets and keep the donations coming in to support the lavish salaries of its executives, apparently no convoluted reasoning is too bizarre. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson rapidly ascended...

    Its pretty clear, there is going to be a major push to raise the states gas tax during the upcoming legislative session. While that should surprise no one, I was shocked to see the over-the-top TV ad that the pro-gas tax crowd is currently using to advance the issue. Thats right, school children are going to die if we dont raise the gas tax. This outrageous ad makes all those negative ads in the U.S. Senate race look like childs play. Talk about jumping the shark. The ad begins with the claim that there are currently 5,000 deficient bridges in...

    While certainly no Tea Party icon, Bill Cosby has been a highly vocal, highly visible exponent of parental responsibility, youthful rectitude, and all-around self control. What were hearing about him lately rather weakens his message, to say the least. And thats very much to the point. Eliminating Bill Cosby as a dissident voice in the lefty atmosphere of Hollywood -- where its an article of Received Truth that the solutions to all social problems, and especially to the woes of black people, lie in government -- no doubt brings satisfaction to those who consider Cosby a right-wing pawn. But lets...

    Dr. Ben Carson describes Ebola as a terrifying disease. He says that if it is left untreated the fatality rate is 90%; with treatment we can get that down to 50% or better. He says he is a little concerned that we are bringing it back here. We have the ability to treat it in other places. It is transmitted through bodily fluids and can survive for at least several days outside of the host. Why risk an accident that leads to spreading when we can send experts elsewhere? He said we could send a plane or equip a part...

    When Ben Bernanke addresses the annual symposium of central bankers in Jackson Hole tomorrow he does so against arguably the most challenging backdrop in his tenure as Federal Reserve chairman. At the end of a week of gloomy reports, Bernanke faces mounting expectations from markets that the Fed will step in to prop up the US's faltering economic recovery. News of stalling business activity and dismal home sales have fanned talk of a double-dip recession at a time when all the easy options have run out. At the same time, divisions appear to be emerging among his committee of policymakers.

    Ben Bernanke is widely expected to win Senate approval for a second term as Federal Reserve chairman, but opponents are hoping to use the debate on his nomination to curtail his autonomy at the central bank. The Senate Banking Committee is poised to clear Mr. Bernanke's nomination on Thursday, sending it to the full Senate for a vote. Several lawmakers plan to use the proceedings to gain momentum for a bill that aims to subject the Fed's monetary-policy making to congressional audits. The measure, crafted by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), mirrors one written by Rep. Ron Paul (R., Texas)...

STEPHEN MOORE I've always prided myself on conscientiously avoiding funding anti-free-market liberal causes in America, so you won't ever catch me pouring Newman's Own oil-and-vinegar dressing on my salad. But I confess to an addiction to Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey and the greatest flavor ever invented in ice-creamdom, Coffee Heath Bar Crunch. So this weekend, while in Vermont to speak at the Freedom Fest sponsored by the Ethan Allen Institute, a conservative state think tank, I paid a visit to the world-famous Ben & Jerry's ice-cream factory. To...

    The call to the police came in at 1 a.m. Thursday and sounded like a supermarket tabloid headline. A man in the small Iron Range town of Gilbert was being eaten alive in his home by rats, the caller said. Police needed to do something! Skepticism turned to disbelief when they responded. More than 200 black rats -- a colony originating from one pregnant pet-store type of rat that the mentally disabled man had taken in -- had overrun the small house.

    Fact: Katrina was a devastating storm. It left terrible damage to innocent people's lives and to property throughout the Gulf South. Fact: There have been other storms as damaging and some far more damaging. What, then, is different about this storm? Here are a few tentative thoughts. First, the incompetence of the local and state authorities in Louisiana and especially New Orleans was breathtaking. To issue a mandatory evacuation order without providing means of transport is almost criminally irresponsible. To take citizens to shelters where they would be beaten, robbed, and raped, and to provide no police protection for them...

One-hundred-five minutes into the 120 minute broadcast is when the comment of one of your "experts" completely ruined and brought into question the veracity of the entire program. The comments by this "expert" demonstrate either a historical error made the the HISTORY Channel, or an attempt by the HISTORY Channel to...

    A great symbol of the rugged old West, or at least as it was portrayed by Hollywood, is riding off into the sunset. The Ponderosa Ranch, an American West theme park where the television show "Bonanza" was filmed, closed on Sunday after its sale to a financier whose plans for the property are unclear. The show, which ran on NBC from 1959 to 1973, was the top-rated U.S. program in the mid-1960s.

    As I begin to write this, I "slug" it, as we writers say, which means I put a heading on top of the document to identify it. This heading is "eonlineFINAL," and it gives me a shiver to write it. I have been doing this column for so long that I cannot even recall when I started. Lew Harris, who founded this great site, asked me to do it maybe seven or eight years ago, and I loved writing this column so much for so long I came to believe it would never end.But again, all things must pass, and...
