  • 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…

  • The Brazil of North America

    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.

  • HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY, CENTRAL AMERICAN HUMANITARIAN CRISIS

    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. On Monday,…

  • The Heartlessness Charge

  • Balkanization Beckons

    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

    Many Americans seem to think it is a smart expository statement, one that typifies the national experience: "America is a nation of immigrants." -- for trying to bring into the country more immigrants, far beyond the national limit. Most of these arguments seek to use the original immigrant…

  • THE WORST PRESIDENT?

    A reputable poll shows that the public believes Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II. Worse than Richard M. Nixon, driven from the presidency by Watergate? Obama is in trouble, no matter how carefully you peel through the Quinnipiac University poll that is causing such a firestorm.
