The nation's first vice president, John Adams, described the job in a letter to his wife as "the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived or his imagination conceived," and indeed he did little in it. Its later occupants -- and here the names Daniel D. Tompkins, Richard…

  • Vigilance Is Patriotic

    My fellow Americans: If you see something, say something — even if it means CAIR will threaten to sue you. Multiple federal agencies and the Department of Defense are on high alert for a possible Islamic terrorist attack on U.S. soil this Independence Day weekend. "Those who seek to harm this…

  • Europe's Real Existential Crisis

    Greece borrowed and spent beyond its means, like New York City in the '70s, and Detroit, Illinois, and Puerto Rico today. All the momentum toward One Europe — the dream of the generation of Jean Monnet that drove Europeans toward ever-deeper union — seems to have dissipated. The Greek crisis…

    When Donald Trump said something not exuberantly enthusiastic about Mexican immigrants, the media's response was to boycott him. Trump said: "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. The first thing a news fact-checker would have noticed is: THE GOVERNMENT WON'T TELL US HOW…

  • Fanning the Flames of Another Black Church Arson Hoax

    America is still reeling from the horrific Charleston, S.C., massacre at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church that claimed the lives of nine innocent people. The last thing the community and our country need are hysterical journalists compounding the pain with inflammatory reporting on an…

    Oh yes, President Obama suddenly was not the klutz the American right always made him out to be, but an overnight emerged visionary. The real and only answer is to hit hard the overtly criminal immigrant-smugglers, who are the dregs of mankind, for these are the men responsible for everything from…

  • Quo Vadis, America?

    Tony Kennedy spotted what no previous court had detected. The absurdity of the decision aside, it represents another stride forward for the revolution preached by Antonio Gramsci. First, there is the total purge of the nation's birth faith, Christianity, from America's public life and educational…

    Bernie Sanders is not going to be president of the United States. He polls at about a quarter of the vote in New Hampshire, which, contrary to popular perception, is not very much like its neighbor, Vermont. Sanders does less well in Iowa, though his iconoclasm suits the sort of committed…

  • The Media's Vile Attacks on Conservative Assimilationists

    There's nothing "progressive" about attacking the children and grandchildren of immigrants who proudly embrace an American identity. Has pallid Professor Cross invented an ambient diagnostic test to measure sufficiently acceptable levels of ethnicity? The Post quoted a grand total of one…

    "We come to celebrate and give thanks for the remarkable life of J. William Fulbright, a life that changed our country and our world forever and for the better. Fulbright was also among those who filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

  • Never Patriotic: The Real Meaning of the Confederate Flag

    In the intensifying debate over the Confederate flag, important clues about the true meaning of this seditious symbol are staring us in the face. Dozens of those clues were posted by an angry, glaring Dylann Storm Roof on the "Last Rhodesian," website, where the confessed Charleston killer pays…

  • Love and Hate in Dixie

    Charleston, too, gave us an example of how a city should behave when faced with horror. As Roof had filmed himself flaunting a Confederate battle flag, the cry went out to tear that flag down from the war memorial in Columbia, South Carolina, and remove its vile presence everywhere in America.

    The massacre of black churchgoers in Charleston by an evil psycho is a hideous thing. And yet the public is being told by The New York Times, The Washington Post, MSNBC and Salon that the Charleston massacre is proof that we live in a country packed with marauding racist murderers.

  • Holy Hypocrisy and Hot Air

    Unlike Pope Francis, I believe that air-conditioning and the capitalists responsible for the technology are blessings to the world. Perhaps the head of the Catholic Church, who condemned "the increasing use and power of air-conditioning" last week in a market-bashing encyclical, is unaware of the…

    When another dramatic story sprang out of Iraq recently -- that ISIS reduced the flow of water through a dam on the Euphrates to shrink the river and give them easier access to the government forces on the other side -- no one here paid much attention. For water-as-war is as old in Iraq as the…

    OK, that's nothing new, but this time, the Obama administration is coming for our $10 bills — the notes graced by the image of Alexander Hamilton.
