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…

  • Whitewashing the Democratic Party's History

    "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…

  • NATO-Russia Collision Ahead?

    "U.S. Poised to Put Heavy Weaponry in East Europe: A Message to Russia," ran the headline in The New York Times. "In a significant move to deter possible Russian aggression in Europe, the Pentagon is poised to store battle tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and other heavy weapons for as many as…

    "We were children of the Sixties," Viola liked to say in later years, as if that in itself made her interesting. SAN FRANCISCO -- In the summer of 1965, Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe" and Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" were released, the Beatles' film "Help!" played in theaters, the…

  • Hands Off Hamilton

    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. True to the identity politics of the Democratic Party, the Obama Treasury Department has announced that some worthy female will replace Hamilton on the…

  • The Creepy Consequences of Oppression Chic

    Why was America so shocked by homegirl hoaxer Rachel Dolezal? The spray-tanned con artist, who resigned this week as head of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of (Artificially) Colored People, is the inevitable outcome of academia's cult of manufactured…

  • The Anti-Politician

    At the declaration by Donald Trump that he is a candidate for the presidential nomination of the Republican Party, media elites of left and right reacted with amusement, anger and disgust. Not because he will be nominated, but because the Trump constituency will represent a vote of no confidence…

    The curious case of Rachel Dolezal has sparked furious commentary about her deceit, her arrogance, her narcissism. Human beings are 99.9 percent genetically identical, Craig Venter and Francis Collins, who led research on the human genome, announced in 2000.

    In Florida, it is almost like a family trauma, a protege and his ardent patron competing for the same prize. In Texas, it is more like a family feud, an upstart and an established figure struggling for advantage. Throughout his career, Marco Rubio has been the beneficiary of the support of Gov.…

    Having spent the past five years viciously battling the Affordable Care Act, GOP leaders are worried that the U.S. Supreme Court may grant them a victory. If the high court rules in favor of conservatives who have challenged the health care law -- essentially gutting it -- millions of Americans…

  • Teach for America's Professional Agitators

    It's increasingly difficult to tell the difference between Teach for America — whose leaders are at the forefront of inflammatory anti-police protests in Baltimore, Ferguson, and now McKinney, Texas — and left-wing activist groups such as Organizing for Action (President Obama's partisan community…

    The great French writer and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery, for instance, is one of my favorites. When I entered Aziz's office in the ruling Revolutionary Command Council headquarters, an eerie and secretive group of buildings, I found a small man, of lean build, with cold, dark eyes that…

  • Imperial Overstretch

    Toward the end of the presidency of George H.W. Bush, America stood alone at the top of the world — the sole superpower. The captive nations of Central and Eastern Europe were breaking free. Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin were friends.

    No one expected Lyndon Johnson to stand down from his re-election campaign in 1968, and no one foresaw that Sen. George McGovern would need two running mates in 1972. Hardly anyone expected former Gov. Jimmy Carter's ascension in 1976, and you could have won an enormous amount of money if you had…
