  • A GOP Ultimatum to Vlad

    With the party united, the odds are now at least even that the GOP will not only hold the House but also capture the Senate in November. Specifically, they should spend time reading S. 2277, the "Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014," introduced by Sen. Bob Corker on May 1, and endorsed by…

  • Israel Supporters: Beware of Hillary

    I'm skeptical, but even if they are, they're probably telling themselves that Hillary Clinton would be a better friend to the Jewish state than the current president. Remember the way first lady Hillary Clinton sat mute while Suha Arafat accused Israelis of poisoning children? She refers in her…

  • REAL SOLUTIONS ARE SCARCE IN BORDER DEBATE

    In case you've wondered how those 57,000 Central American "youngsters" could creep across the American border without any of us seeing them on our own streets or downtowns, here are some of the answers our beleaguered government is giving us: -- Federal data now declares that the "vast majority"…

  • SALEM'S SECRET TREASURE, HIDDEN EVEN FROM THE LOCALS

    For four generations, members of my family have walked through the doors of the Hawthorne Hotel here on Washington Square, attending meetings of Rotary or the Chamber of Commerce, stepping downstairs into the basement for teen parties, mingling in the lobby after Thanksgiving morning 5K races that…

  • Hamas' Triumph

    Hamas, with perhaps unwitting help from President Barack Obama, is achieving its war aim: to legitimize Islamic supremacism and Jew-hatred, and take it global. Who now recalls that when Hamas was elected, the world responded with disgust? Hamas was on everyone's terrorist list. Flailing, the…

  • Is Putin Worse Than Stalin?

    In 1933, the Holodomor was playing out in Ukraine. After the "kulaks," the independent farmers, had been liquidated in the forced collectivization of Soviet agriculture, a genocidal famine was imposed on Ukraine through seizure of her food production. In November 1933, during the Holodomor, the…

  • Still Fighting: The Delphi Workers Obama Robbed

    The White House pretended to champion American workers this week with gimmicky initiatives on federal job training and "workplace innovation." But far from the Beltway dog-and-pony show, a group of American workers ruthlessly shafted by the Obama administration was finally getting some real support…

  • The American Way of Death

    The evidence that it was being administered arbitrarily and unfairly was so overwhelming that the Supreme Court had effectively placed a moratorium on it. The first man to be executed after the moratorium was Gary Gilmore, who wanted to die. The second was a murderer named John Spenkelink, who…

  • THE DUTCH AND RUSSIAN CHARACTER SPRING FROM THEIR HISTORIES

    WASHINGTON -- Last week, as the eyes of the world shuttled between the grievous scene of death in eastern Ukraine and the beautiful, moving funerals for some of the dead in the Netherlands, we were seeing far more than two vastly different ways of living -- and dying. We were seeing the…

  • EYES ON THE PRIZE

    When a U.S. president is using the IRS to terrify his political enemies, destroying American health care and opening our southern border to millions of future welfare-collecting, Democratic voters from the Third World, why is a dime's worth of money being wasted on trying to replace the Republican…

  • False Equivalence

    Israel and Hamas do not stand in the same shoes. Until the past day or two, the death toll scoreboard so widely reported in the media was running so lopsidedly in Israel's "favor" that Israel was being chastised because too few of its soldiers and civilians had died. Hamas has launched thousands…

    The fear of a renascent Russia has only slightly died down since the heinous downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, and analysts as well as journalists are still saying that we face another Cold War, if not a return to all-out fighting. Of course, at Russian circuses, it has been known to dance.
