• More Reagan Than Reagan

    This tiny community, first settled exactly 250 years ago, is conservatism's hometown. It was here that Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman, one of the founding fathers of modern conservative economics, used to repair for restorative summers. Indeed, there was a time, only a generation ago, when…

  • Things I'm Grateful For

    "Who is happy?" asks a sage in the great Jewish wisdom compendium "Sayings of the Fathers." Answer: "He who is contented with his lot."

  • Stumbling to War With Russia?

    Turkey's decision to shoot down a Russian warplane was a provocative and portentous act. "A stab in the back by the accomplices of terrorists," said Vladimir Putin of the first downing of a Russian warplane by a NATO nation in half a century. Putin has a point, as the Russians are bombing rebels…

  • Importing Terrorism and Other American Values

    Americans keep being hectored to take "refugees" from terrorist-producing countries because to do otherwise would be "a betrayal of our values," as President Obama said on Monday. The rise of Donald Trump reminds us of the popularity of another, long-forgotten American value: protecting Americans.…

  • Have a Happy, Politics-Free Thanksgiving

    Many people naturally assume that since I work in political journalism, I must breathe, drink and eat politics 24/7/365 — including on the Thanksgiving holiday. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest advised Americans "sitting around the Thanksgiving table" to talk about gun control. The…

  • Immigrants Arrive With Their Pasts Intact

    WASHINGTON -- Until the advent of Donald Trump's presidential candidacy, the word "immigration" tended to mean the controlled and more-or-less legal movement of one people to another country. Oh, there were always "border troubles" here and there, but nothing to (so to speak) write home…

  • Will Europe Man Up?

    If the purpose of terrorism is to terrify, the Islamic State had an extraordinary week. Brussels, capital of the EU and command post of mighty NATO, is still in panic and lockdown.

  • Clinton in Commanding Position, but Must Overcome Obstacles

    No candidate in decades has been in as strong a position to win a major-party nomination as former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Not since Richard Nixon in 1960 breezed to his appointment with destiny in Chicago has a presidential contender had so easy a time advancing to the finals…

  • Obama Drove Sunnis Into ISIS' Arms

    Throughout the last third of George W. Bush's presidency, opinion leaders were obsessed with the question of mistakes. Among most members of the press and among Democratic officeholders (even, or perhaps especially, those who voted to approve the Iraq War), the appetite was strong to hold…

  • The End of Obamaworld

    In denouncing Republicans as "scared of widows and orphans," and castigating those who prefer Christian refugees to Muslims coming to America, Barack Obama has come off as petulant and unpresidential. Is anything like the First Amendment operative across the Sunni or Shiite world, or in China?

  • The Ululations of Radical College Crybabies

    Deray McKesson, the professional agitator whose racial rabble-rousing began at tax-subsidized Teach for America, proudly unveiled his new enterprise on the Internet Thursday: A website chronicling "THE DEMANDS" of his radical brothers and sisters on college campuses across Northern America.

  • When the Third World Attacks!

    Franco-Belgian yet cosmopolitan in culture, Abaaoud's great-grandfather, Anselmus Aaster, opened the first chocolate shop on the Rue des Bouchers, Brussels. Abaaoud claimed to be a distant relation of the 17th-century Baroque artist, Philippe de Champaigne, who painted Cardinal Richelieu eleven…

  • Where Is America's 'Force Protection' from Refujihadis?

    FPCON is the military's security posture to protect troops, their families, civilian employees, information, equipment and facilities against terrorist threats. FPCON Bravo — the third-highest threat level on a five-tier scale used by the Department of Defense — signals a climate in which…

    When French President Francois Hollande addressed both houses of the French Parliament after the terrorist ravages of Paris -- "We are at war!" he proclaimed -- he was doing something more rare and historically important than it at first seemed. That date marks the year when all Europe erupted in…

  • Is Putin Our Ally in Syria?

    Barack Obama has no strategy for winning the war on ISIS. This criticism, however, sounds strange coming from a party that controls Congress but has yet to devise its own strategy, or even to authorize the use of U.S. military force in Syria. Yazidis and Kurds last week recaptured Sinjar in Iraq…

  • Snowflakes or Fascists?

    At the University of Missouri, students "demanded" that (now-former) university President Tim Wolfe write a "handwritten" letter of apology acknowledging his "white, male privilege." Among his alleged sins was apparently not doing enough to shield so-called "marginalized students" from feeling…

  • Temper Campus Social Outrage With Sense of Perspective

    The University of Missouri seems to have done a few things right over the past several days. After weeks of protests, during which high-ranking university officials showed insensitivity, at best, to the fears and anxieties of black students who grappled with displays of outright racism on campus,…

  • Not Too Swift

    The writer Jonathan Swift died 270 years ago this fall and thus is not around to comment on the 2016 election. That's because Swift was keenly interested in politics. Swift's "Hints Towards an Essay on Conversation," published in 1713, offers us a surprisingly useful guide to our own political…
