  • 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…

  • What Needs Resetting

    The bodies of 298 passengers and crew of Malaysia Air Flight 17, 80 of them children, lie unburied in a Ukrainian field while Vladimir Putin's men fire their weapons into the air to keep international investigators from approaching the site. Yes, "Putin's men." Calling them "Russian separatists"…

  • The Day of the Hawk

    Today, Vladimir Putin, with an indictment being drawn up against him, is blaming Ukraine for the war out of which the tragedy came. For the rebels in Ukraine are seen as Putin's proxies. They have been armed and advised by Russia. While the separatists say they got the surface-to-air missiles…

  • HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF IN RUSSIAN MEDDLING

    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.

  • THE CHOICE OF CLEVELAND

    The Republicans have made a choice, and it's the last easy one they will have for the next 23 months. They will hold their national political convention in Cleveland. The last time they went to Cleveland, the Republicans faced a small insurgency. The establishment candidate was Gov. Alf Landon…

  • RAND PAUL FACES CHALLENGE IN OPPOSING GOP WAR HAWKS

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is a curious vehicle for reformation of the Republican Party. Still, Paul brings a refreshing view of the limits of warfare to a GOP that has spent the last several decades enthusiastically embracing military interventions across the globe. The country needs no more Dick…

  • THE CHILDREN OF THE BORDER

    The deported Hondurans are among the flood of women and children, including 57,000 unaccompanied children, from Central America who have been entering the United States illegally. "This is not a sectional issue," said Kennedy on national television.

  • Cleveland Could Be Good for GOP, if ...

    You needn't be clairvoyant to deduce what the Democratic Party wants to run on in 2016. It really doesn't matter whether their nominee is Hillary Clinton or someone else. Democrats won't be campaigning on the thriving economy under President Barack Obama, global stability under American…

  • Mrs. Obama's Operation VA Scandal Distraction

    Barack and Michelle Obama are quite the diversionary tag-team. While the shirker in chief golfed and grubbed for money at closed-door celebrity fundraisers this week, his East Wing flak-catcher provided him cunning cover on the still-festering VA scandals. Mrs. Obama flew to Los Angeles to…

    To observe the decades-long paralysis of America's political elite in controlling her borders calls to mind the insight of James Burnham in 1964 — "Liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide." Several were not.

    Next, liberals told us these "undocumented migrants" (the PC phrase for "illegal aliens" -- because we'll never figure out what that means) were mere children fleeing violence and drug cartels. (Suspiciously, liberals' wailing about a "humanitarian" crisis began immediately after Sen. Chuck…

  • Jose Antonio Vargas: The Face of the Entitled Illegal Alien

    During the Bush years, the open-borders movement won over bleeding hearts in the White House but alienated the American public with radical displays of La Raza ("The Race") militancy, desecrated American flags and Che Guevara shirt-wearing, fist-thrusting marches across the country.

    Speaking to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Albuquerque in 2001, George W.

In 2007, backed by John McCain, Hillary Clinton,…

  • IMMIGRATION POLICY MAKERS SHOULD TAKE A PAGE FROM HISTORY
