  • Republican Suicide

    Nine years ago, aboard a National Review cruise, I debated immigration policy with my colleagues and the cruisers. Are big business and big agriculture enmeshed in a corrupt bargain with liberal Democrats whereby business gets cheap labor and Democrats get new voters?

  • Do Cops' Lives Matter to Obama?

    Barack Obama, as chief law enforcement officer of the United States, is going to have to stop acting like a conscientious objector in this war on cops. Last Friday, Darren Goforth, a Houston deputy sheriff, was shot 15 times by an alleged black racist. President Obama called the widow of Deputy…

  • Joe Biden's Yuck Factor

    Next week, as rumors swirl of his possible entry into the 2016 presidential race, Vice President Joe Biden will appear on liberal comedian Stephen Colbert's new late-night CBS show. The VIP guest is a political clown with more baggage than the Kardashians during Paris fashion week. Setting aside…

  • BLACK-ON-BLACK VIOLENCE DEMANDS OUR ATTENTION

    That's the powerful and relevant message that a loosely organized group of young activists have used as a clarion call to bring attention to the crisis of police violence against black citizens, usually unarmed black men. Shouldn't it be obvious that black lives matter as much as white ones? …

  • HOW TO WRITE A NEW YORK TIMES OP-ED IN THREE EASY STEPS!

    (1) Psychoanalyze conservatives as paranoid and insecure. Liberals -- who, to a man, have been in psychoanalysis -- enjoy putting people they disagree with on the operating table and performing a vivisection, as if conservatives are some lower life form. This should not be confused with Justin A.…

  • Eric Cantor: Poster Boy of the Beltway GOP Crapweasels

    My sides are still aching after last week's comical announcement by GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush that he had snagged the coveted endorsement of notorious electoral reject Eric Cantor, the former House majority leader kicked to the curb by disgusted voters in Virginia's 2014 primary election.…

  • HISTORY OF FAILURE IS OBSCURED BY ROSE-COLORED GLASSES

    When the first savage hordes of the Islamic State came rolling out of Syria in stolen American trucks across the unrelieved sands of northern Iraq in 2013, it seemed to be an image of Mesopotamian hell on Detroit wheels. Indeed, where COULD hundreds of ominously black-clad men -- faces covered,…

  • Can the GOP Deal With Iran?

    President Nixon responded with air and naval strikes on the North. Three months earlier, Nixon had gone to Peking to toast Mao Zedong, whose regime was also aiding Hanoi, and which, two decades before, had been killing GIs in the thousands in Korea. Which brings us to Iran.

  • THE PERILS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

    During the 1944 international monetary conference that created the postwar economy, John Maynard Keynes preached his economic gospel here. This is the 100th anniversary of the New Hampshire primary. The Clinton and Bush families have suffered defeats here and have enjoyed victories here, their…

  • Denver Corruptocrats' Chick-fil-A Smokescreen

    Holier-than-thou liberals on the Denver city council are waging war on Chick-fil-A in the name of tolerance and diversity. Michelle Malkin is author of the new book "Who Built That: Awe-Inspiring Stories of American Tinkerpreneurs." Her email address is malkinblog@gmail.com.

  • Caesarism Comes to the Republican Party

    Among a very long list of harms inflicted upon the United States by Barack Obama and his party, perhaps the worst was Caesarism. Obama relished the worship of millions in 2008. From his star turn at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, he was treated not as a political candidate, but as a…

  • SMALL BUT HONEST COLUMNIST AGAIN FORCED TO CORRECT HIGHEST-RATED SHOW ON CABLE TV

    To support his insane interpretation of the post-Civil War amendments as granting citizenship to the kids of illegal aliens, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly is now taking job applications for the nonexistent -- but dearly hoped-for -- Jeb! administration, live, during his show. Last Thursday's job…

  • What Is Obama's Top Population-Control Freak Hiding?

    The most transparent administration in American history is at it again — dodging sunlight and evading public disclosure. Joining former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her secret servers, former IRS witch hunt queen Lois Lerner and her secret email accounts, former EPA Administrator Lisa…

  • TRUMP'S APPEAL IS REMINISCENT OF CASTRO

    Donald Trump has some of these same characteristics, which could be a source of great consequence to our nation. What most arrested my attention was the way he used the same small, but effective, gestures as Fidel.

  • Is Trumpism the New Nationalism?

    Since China devalued its currency 3 percent, global markets have gone into a tailspin. After all, 3 percent devaluation in China could be countered by a U.S. tariff of 3 percent on all goods made in China, and the tariff revenue used to cut U.S. corporate taxes. Disbelievers in New World Order…

  • FOR AGING GOP VOTERS, THE TIMES THEY ARE A'CHANGIN'

    Donald Trump will not be president of these United States, no matter the preferences of a substantial number of the Republican Party's most loyal voters. For now, though, the real estate mogul and reality-TV darling is enjoying a moment aloft the polls as the GOP's man to beat. A recent…

  • A MAN ON FIRE

    There was a man with a "Stop Puppy Mills" T-shirt and another whose shirt read "National Sarcasm Society." There was a woman, dressed entirely in white, holding a banner reading "Lead Us to Clean Energy." There was a man with an Apache haircut. This could only be a Bernie Sanders rally.

    Veronica is profoundly grateful for all the prayers, kindness and advice from strangers, friends and family alike that she received earlier this summer when I first told you about her plight. While most students dread going back to school, she wanted more than anything else to return to the…

  • Taking Our Country Back: From Whom?

    Let's assume, for fun, that Donald Trump's supporters are thinking with their brains, not their viscera. Trump is playing them for chumps. The United States is very much in decline, but the role of illegal immigration in that slide is negligible.
