  • The End of Ideology?

    And President Obama is widely blamed for the perceived decline in worldwide respect for the United States. Yet, still, one hears no clamor from Middle America for "Action This Day!" to alter the perception that America is in retreat. If Japan and China fight over islets 10,000 miles away, islets…

  • Aiming High

    There's an MRCTV video circulating on the Internet that features a man with a microphone asking college students in Washington, D.C., to name just one member of the United States Senate. Survey data confirm that large numbers of Americans lack even rudimentary knowledge of what used to be called…

  • RETURN OF SOVIET EMPIRE IS PUTIN'S PIPEDREAM

    WASHINGTON -- Most Americans, supposing that they even live in a part of the country where they get foreign news, would now rather expectedly believe that Russia and Ukraine had broken out into the first phases of war. After the unprovoked attack by Moscow on Crimea -- "Surprise, surprise! We've…

  • LBJ'S CIVIL RIGHTS ACT IRREVOCABLY CHANGED U.S. LANDSCAPE

    Last week, President Obama and civil rights luminaries went to the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act. Yet the anniversary comes at a confusing moment in America's racial journey. And bigotry played a role in the unjust shootings of…

  • WILL JEB BUSH RUN?

    The presidential nomination race is frozen. The deep freeze frustrates politicos, though the vast majority of Americans is happy not to talk about a fight for the White House just now. It's customary to apply that analysis to the Democratic contest, where former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham…

  • WHY WE NEED LOCAL REPORTING

    LOS ANGELES -- Last Thursday was an interesting news day around here -- and one that highlighted the importance of local reporting as newspapers fade away across the country. A woman named Angela Spaccia was sentenced to 11 years in prison and fined $8 million for 11 felonies. She was…

  • The Legacy of Obama's Illegal Alien Aunt

    Zeituni Onyango, President Obama's illegal alien aunt, died this week of cancer and other complications. America, however, should be up in arms. Auntie Zeituni is an enduring symbol of all that is wrong with this country's immigration "policy" — or rather, its complete lack of a coherent,…

    While some on the right have criticized their own side — think of Rick Perry and Jeb Bush challenging immigration opponents, or conservative columnists taking on some talk radio hosts — liberals have been shamefully silent about the excesses committed by Democrats. One is my old friend and…

  • What Would Reagan Do?

    President Reagan was holding a meeting in the Cabinet Room on March 25, 1985, when Press Secretary Larry Speakes came over to me, as communications director, with a concern. The White House was about to issue a statement on the killing of Major Arthur Nicholson, a U.S. army officer serving in East…

  • COMPETITION FOR THEE, BUT NOT FOR ME

    Between having Republican presidential candidates fly to Las Vegas to kiss his ring, billionaire Sheldon Adelson has managed to fit in time to talk Sen. Lindsey Graham into sponsoring a bill banning Internet gambling. As you may know, Sheldon Adelson is a CASINO OWNER. Internet gambling would…

  • The Meltdown of the Obama Genderhawks

    I have created a new species designation for the female Democrats who play hypocritical gender politics on behalf of Barack Obama. They demand "equal pay" for women, practice militant identity politics based on chromosomes and purport to wage an all-out government war on gender inequity. The…

  • The New Blacklist

    "There is a gay mafia," said Bill Maher, "if you cross them you do get whacked." Maher, the host of HBO's "Real Time," was talking about the gay activists and their comrades who drove Brendan Eich out as CEO of Mozilla. Eich, who invented JavaScript and co-founded Mozilla in 1998, had been named…

  • Press Gets It Wrong Again on Mass Shooting

    I wrote columns attempting to draw attention to the mental health system in America that so wrongheadedly fails to treat the dangerous mentally ill. Now, at last, the mental health angle on mass shootings has become conventional wisdom — just in time, perhaps, to be wrong again. "Fort Hood…

    My friend Isatou has just received an invoice from Kaiser Permanente, testament to her new coverage through the Affordable Care Act -- usually called "Obamacare." She's thrilled to finally have health insurance so she can get regular checkups, including dental care. But before Obamacare, she…

  • The Best Government Money Can Buy

    The Supreme Court has done it again. What the 1976 court saw in Buckley v. Valeo as a "quite modest restraint upon protected political activity" that serves "to prevent evasion" of the limits on contributions to campaigns, the 2014 court has now held violates the fundamental protection of…

    WASHINGTON -- Since we moved, after 9/11, to take over Iraq and Afghanistan and anybody else who stood in our way, I have often had readers criticize me for my admittedly negative attitudes toward (1) the unnecessary wars themselves, and (2) the futility of expecting tribal peoples to embrace…

It did so in 2000, when it settled the electoral standoff between Al Gore Jr. and George W. Bush. This latest decision, which…
