  • Senators at Play

    With luck, Michelle Friedland, a highly qualified appointee to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, will be confirmed when the Senate returns from its two-week recess on April 28. Actually, if the Senate were comprised of grownups who work for us, instead of grownups who act…

  • NED's Chickens Come Home to Roost

    When Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Empire an "evil empire," the phrase reflected his conviction that while the East-West struggle was indeed a global geostrategic conflict, it had a deep moral dimension. If Americans did not see the Cold War as he did, a battle between good and evil, Reagan knew…

  • Time Bombs in Democratic Coalition

    The Republican Party is roiling with internal conflicts, say the analysts. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party, supposedly the firm fortress of the middle class, minorities and women, is actually showing some internal stresses as well.

  • ALMANAC OF WORLD ISLAMISM MAY LEAD TO BETTER UNDERSTANDING

    It was filed correctly between "Russia" and "Central Asia," which the book is about. Its title is (take a breath!) "Oriental and Western Siberia: A Narrative of Seven Years' Explorations and Adventures in Siberia, Mongolia, the Kirghis Steppes, Chinese Tartary, and Part of Central Asia." The…

  • BACK ANY CANDIDATE YOU WANT AS LONG AS IT'S ONE OF THESE THREE

    As those of you who follow my hate mail know, I am opposed to running untested candidates against perfectly good incumbent Republican senators this election cycle. It will be a long time before Republicans have as good a year as this to win a Senate majority. Anyone opposing an incumbent…

  • Obamacare, Part Two

    The good news: Her new plan, which fully complies with the Affordable Care Act, provides much more comprehensive coverage and lower co-pays than the one she used to have. Now, this young woman is really good at dealing with insurance companies. It's what she does all day long — getting…

  • 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

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…

  • 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,…

    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…
