    Thank goodness we last November gave the Republicans the Senate majority.Who besides the GOP would resurrect government money for ridiculous “green” “energy” – which is neither green nor energy? To the tune of tens (if not hundreds) of billions of dollars more down the juice-less rat hole. Oh yeah – every Democrat on the planet. Senate May Revive Expired Green Energy Tax SubsidiesThe Senate finance committee will be holding a markup hearing on expired tax subsidies members want to be revived for their constituents and campaign supporters, and this includes now defunct subsidies for green energy.A document released by...

    April 18, 2014 CUMMINGS’ “MCCARTHYISM” CHARGE IN LERNER HEARING IS BOGUSM.Stanton Evans Five plus decades after he left the national scene, Sen. Joe McCarthy (R-Wis) remains the target of inaccurate charges by leftward elements in Congress and the press corps.The latest example in this vein is the uproar over IRS official Lois Lerner, who took the Fifth Amendment before the House Government Oversight Committee, chaired by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), concerning hostile treatment of conservative groups seeking tax exemptions,. Having proclaimed her innocence of wrongdoing, Lerner then refused to discuss specifics, pleading possible self-incrimination. This led Issa and his GOP...

    Ann Coulter, David Limbaugh, Erick Erickson and Michelle Malkin have a new publisher in Washington today, the expanding Christian conservative media empire of Salem Communications Corp., recently dubbed "the new power in conservative media." Salem on Monday completed the purchase of Eagle Publishing, which operates Regnery, the nation's leading conservative book publisher; Human Events, one of the oldest conservative news providers; and the popular website RedState, headed by Erickson. Two other properties, Eagle Financial Publications and Eagle Wellness, were included. No price was provided to Secrets.

The California-based company has recently gobbled up sites that reach millions of readers, like Michelle Malkins, the Eagle Publishing group which is home to, and the conservative publishing house Regnery. The Salem empire already includes more than 100 Christian and conservative talk-radio stations and several Christian-themed websites, as well as and Though...

    There was a large number of layoffs at Human Events, as announced at an internal staff meeting this morning, FishbowlDC has learned. But its actually much bigger than that. The conservative publication is shutting down entirely. Eagle Publishing, which owns Human Events, released the following statement: Washington, DC (February 27, 2013) Eagle Publishing, Inc. announced today it has made the difficult decision to cease publishing Human Events, the conservative weekly newspaper. The issue dated February 18 is the final issue. This was a difficult decision, and one we did not make lightly, said publisher Joe Guerriero. As everyone knows,...

    In an exclusive Human Events interview, the senior Republican on the Senate’s Agriculture Committee's Jobs, Rural Economic Growth and Energy Innovation subcommittee discusses his take on the MF Global bankruptcy scandal. “I have heard from several South Dakotans who were affected by the apparent fraud that occurred in the final days of MF Global before its collapse,” said Sen. John R. Thune (R-S.D.), who worked in the Small Business Administration​ under President Ronald W. Reagan. [Video of Thune's December 13 questioning Corzine is at the bottom of the article.] The firm’s Halloween bankruptcy was followed by the November 4 resignation...

    As the national media continues to promote the idea that these absurd "Occupy" protests demonstrate some groundswell of popular opinion, reports continue to emerge from localized media showing how ugly these encampments are becoming. A report out of Cleveland that  police are investigating a rape claim made by a 19-year-old woman last weekend has received little attention. Do you suppose if a rape claim was made against a tea partier that it would receive more attention?It's gotten so bad in Baltimore that organizers are discouraging alleged victims from going to the police (maybe they should go to Sheriff Biden).Meanwhile,...

    Human Events columnist (and former Deputy Press Secretary at the U.S. Department of State, Communications Director for the House Majority Whip, and Associate Producer at ABC News), Emily Miller attempted to ask Representative Anthony Weiner some questions about the infamous Twitter scandal. Here's what went down: "I got stuck inches from this disgusting Anthony Weiner as he talked to reporters outside the House chamber. He made over six lewd jokes that were so gross, I was bright red and tried to back away from him." Some of the representative comments: I asked Anthony Weiner if there are photos of him...

    Are whites on the verge of becoming a minority of the American population? That's what some analysts of the 2010 Census results claim. Many go on, sometimes with relish, to say that this spells electoral doom for the Republican Party. I think the picture is more complicated than that. And that the demise of the Republican Party is no more foreordained than it was a century ago when Italian, Jewish and Polish immigrants were pouring into the United States in proportions much greater than the Hispanic and Asian immigration of the past two decades. The numbers do appear stark. The...

    This weekend, American soldiers have once again stepped into harms way, as Operation Odyssey Dawn begins in Libya. Coincidentally, were also passing through a pop-culture moment of some significance, as a sizable portion of our cultural elite find themselves strongly at odds with audiences over an unexpectedly popular movie, Battle: Los Angeles. Pop-culture criticism can be a tricky affair. Critics often praise a film that audiences ignore, or vice versa. Whats interesting in this case is how profound the disconnect has become. Battle: LA passed the $60 million mark at the box office this weekend, but many critics dont just...

    Disgraced Congressman Charlie Rangel attempted to escape reality by diving into a crowd of adoring lefties at the One Nation Working Together rally at the Lincoln Memorial. The Harlem Democrat is about to stand trial to defend against 13 counts of ethical charges by his colleagues in the House, but you wouldnt know it if you saw him being treated like a rock star on Saturday. Rangel sported enormous black sunglasses and delved into the crowds, who cheered Charlie, Charlie! A happy-go-lucky Charlie hugged the fans, glad-handed and yelled I love you! Well, Charlie tried to escape reality, but HUMAN...

    In the new edition of More Guns, Less Crime, economist John R. Lott, Jr., easily dispels any lingering doubt that allowing citizens to carry concealed handguns is strongly associated withif not a direct cause forlowering the rates of violent crime. The hypothesis that more guns connects to less crime has stood up against massive efforts to criticize it, Lott writes in the books third edition, now available from the University of Chicago Press in the United States and on June 14 in the United Kingdom. He backs that statement with cold, hard facts. The new edition, which includes data and...

Mattera is a fearless, conservative activist who's pistol-whipped the likes of John Kerry and Mr. Smalley himself. See his videos on youtube if you don't believe me.I've read OBAMA ZOMBIES, and all I can say is that it is a MUST READ FOR ALL CONSERVATIVES. This guy Jason knows how to skewer liberalism on camera and in print. I LEARNED so much from OBAMA ZOMBIES. The data will shock you!

Feliciano released a statement Wednesday saying that he was "revolted beyond words" and that the song was never meant to be "a vehicle for a political platform of racism and hate."

    In Washingtonian inside the Beltway terms, the most amazing aspect of former Vice President Dick Cheneys new clout is that he is achieving it the old-fashioned way: talking about public policy. He is not running for President or any other office. He has not formed a PAC or a D.C. lobbying firm. He is not dishing on former colleagues, not spreading gossip, not settling scores. He is, instead, writing a memoir about his extensive career in public service, and giving occasional speeches and interviews, mostly on national and homeland security policy, long his central focus. How is it, therefore, that...

    (CNN) - He may have exited the national stage nearly one year ago, but former Vice President Dick Cheney has been named "Conservative of the Year" by the conservative Human Events magazine for his ardent and continuous criticisms of the Obama administration's national security policies. "What Cheney is saying, primarily on foreign policy, defense and anti-terrorism, makes sense to more and more American citizens growing increasingly worried by the Obama Administration's insouciance when U.S. national interests are threatened, both at home and abroad," former U.N. ambassador John Bolton writes for the magazine. "Since the only real, long-term way to deal...

On this evening's Hardball, Chris Matthews called Dick Cheney "the bath-tub ring of the Bush administration." Chris' calumny came in reaction to the news that the estimable Human Events magazine has named the former VP 'Conservative of the Year'. View video here.
