  • $8 billion in U.S. funds may have gone to the Taliban

    Since the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan in the summer of 2021, the U.S. has continued sending money to the country in the form of humanitarian aid. Now, a watchdog claims that the U.S. can’t be confident that our $8 billion of aid to Afghanistan isn’t funding the Taliban.
  • Deadbeat Dad, Granddad of the Year
    A 4-year-old girl is being punished – both financially and inherently – for the sole reason that she had the audacity to be conceived out of wedlock in a brief relationship that proved compromising for the first family. For that, her existence does not register with the Bidens. 
  • The suburbs are pulling us apart
    The suburbs were both the melting pot and the patchwork quilt that is America. Our neighbors had gun racks and Volvos.
  • Preventing fentanyl from reaching Ohio communities

  • A sermon on John 14:1-12
    Until Jesus returns, He assures them the works of God will continue. "The Father who dwells in me is doing his works." (John 14:10.) What is the work of our Father? It is this. The Father sent Jesus to reveal who God really is. God is love who restores, heals and saves humans. Jesus used miracles to prove this.

  • Brussels and Asunción
    Brussels, Belgium is the capital of the European Union. Asunción, Paraguay is the capital of (you guessed it) Paraguay. There is important news from both this week, one a note of caution; the other a sigh of relief.  
  • Some debate, some concern and some positive news
    Recent public meetings have had ample debate regarding the disbursement of what are taxpayers' dollars. That is not necessarily a bad thing.
  • Equity and the race to the bottom
    Most Americans believe in equality. We want to make sure that everyone has, to the greatest extent possible, an equal place at the starting line. From there, each individual has the freedom to achieve what their desires, ability, and hard work make possible. Achieving that kind of equality is the American dream, the engine that enables people from any walk of life to realize their dreams. Equity, as activists preach it, trades away this American heritage for abstractions and fantasies.
  • Month of the Military Child: Unsung sacrifices
    Established by former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger in 1986, the Month of the Military Child has since been celebrated every April to recognize the 1.6 million children of our men and women in uniform. From watching their parents leave home to serve overseas or attend various training exercises, to moving every few years when it is time to change duty stations, I am forever grateful for the sacrifices that military children make to support the brave men and women of our nation’s great military.
  • Make America work again

  • Entrepreneurs don't meet needs; they lead needs
    When Cato Institute co-founder Ed Crane was building the libertarian movement in the 1970s, he came across a lot of self-proclaimed conservatives. What’s notable about this is that in getting to know some of them, Crane sensed they weren’t as they described themselves.
  • Fads are getting more dangerous
    Decisions that have long-term, potentially irreversible consequences, need a heavy dose of adult thinking. As a society, we are not protecting our children. After all, it takes a village to raise a child.
  • First 100 days of the 118th Congress
    With a divided government – remember that the White House and Senate are controlled by Democrats – it is unrealistic to expect many of our ideas to become law, but we have used our position to highlight and push policies that the American people largely support.
