  • Obama's Republican Collaborators

    The GOP swept to victory in November by declaring that this imperial presidency must be brought to heel, and President Obama's illicit seizures of Congressional power must end. This week, Congress takes up legislation to cede His Majesty full authority to negotiate the largest trade deal in…

  • CLINTON V. RUBIO ET AL

    Perhaps the Clinton skeptics prefer a comparison with Herbert Hoover, probably the only figure in modern history besides Dwight Eisenhower and perhaps George H.W. Bush, with pre-presidential experience commensurate with Clinton's. Either way, she begins her second campaign for the White House with…

  • Obama: Cuban Information Minister?

    Two relatively recent photos of Barack Obama with foreign leaders reveal much about his deep-dyed leftism. The first features President Obama and democratically elected Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, leader of one of America's most loyal friends. Obama looks strained. The second is a snap of…

  • A U.S.-Russia War Over Ukraine?

    The answer the authors give, in "Countdown to War: The Coming U.S. Russia Conflict," is that the odds are shortening on a military collision between the world's largest nuclear powers. The cockpit of the conflict, should it come, will be Ukraine. What makes the article timely is the report that…

  • Congress Acts

    It seems like every time I turned around this week, Congress — or at least some subset of it — was actually doing something. Was it just yesterday that they were agreeing to let the president try to negotiate within the framework of a nuclear deal with Iran? Watching the president last week in…

  • THE DOGS OF WAR ARE HOWLING AGAIN

    For one brief, shining moment, it seemed as though Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, now seeking the Republican nomination for president, might be a strong voice in the GOP for military restraint. Alas, that Rand Paul is quickly disappearing. Having formalized his presidential ambitions, he and his…

  • Gwyneth Paltrow's Poverty Voyeurism

    OK, it's not as painful as her last $5,200 Thermage session in Santa Monica, but still, she really, really does feel the agony of the ordinary. Last week, the progressive princess celebrity joined the "SNAP challenge." It's basically the ice bucket challenge for bored Hollywood liberals and…

  • WE NEED AN ANKLE BRACELET FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES

    Usually liberals have the decency to wait a few months after one of their rape fantasies collapses to start citing the case as "unresolved" -- it was a tie, the game was rained out, we'll never know what happened. But with the apocryphal University of Virginia gang rape, lefties started in right…

  • Yes, She Can

    I remember when Fritz Mondale announced that he had chosen Geraldine Ferraro as his running mate. This is the candidate who is going to be the target of a battering by the left?

  • A SECOND CHANCE IN CUBA

    If the much-heralded meeting between Barack Obama and Raul Castro was hardly to be equated with the meeting in mid-Africa between Stanley and Livingstone, at least some nice phrases were exchanged. One certainly came from President Obama, never a slouch on knowing how to express a deeply felt…

  • The Obama Doctrine

    "The United States will not be imprisoned by the past — we're looking to the future. Churchill's bust may have resided in the Oval Office of George Bush. Obama sent it back to the British Embassy. His hero is Nelson Mandela, who overthrew centuries of white rule in South Africa.

  • THE CANADIAN HEALTH CARE REVOLUTION

    Consistent with the modest character of this province at the center of a country that revels in modesty, a modest commemorative sits in front of a modest two-story home. Right here, at 814 Saskatchewan Crescent in the Nutana residential neighborhood of Saskatoon, rests a small historical plaque…

  • Still Worth Arguing About the Financial Crisis

    The candidates who are announcing for president will be cheered to know that the Democratic Party has been hemorrhaging popularity the way the housing market lost value in 2008. A 2015 Pew survey found that 40 percent of Americans had a favorable opinion of Republicans in 2009, and just 41 percent…

  • The Long Retreat in the Culture War

    Faced with a corporate-secularist firestorm, Gov. Mike Pence said Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act would not protect Christian bakers or florists who refuse their services to same-sex weddings. Traditional Christianity, driven out of schools and the public square, is being whipped back…

  • QUICK REACTION TO WALTER SCOTT KILLING IS REASON TO HOPE

    In this latest episode of inexplicably brutal police conduct, the video footage is raw and unblinking. This time, a police officer in the South Carolina city of North Charleston shoots an apparently unarmed black man as he flees, striking him several times in the back. The fatal shooting of…

  • CAN THE LEFT COME UP WITH ONE TRUE STORY?

    From the Duke lacrosse team, the Columbia mattress girl and the University of Virginia, the left has not been able to produce one actual rape on a college campus. It's beginning to look as if the rape of the Sabine women never happened, either. The big finale to the latest college rape fable,…

  • A BLACK EYE FOR JOURNALISM

    Last November, when the leftist magazine Rolling Stone printed a gruesomely melodramatic story, "A Rape on Campus," about a vicious attack upon a University of Virginia coed, the entire nation seemed to erupt in horror and anger. The attack had taken place, the magazine averred, on the beautiful…

  • VA Reform: Another Obama "Success Story"

    Eight months ago, President Obama put on a grand show for the troops. Surrounded by new Secretary of Veterans Affairs Bob McDonald, assorted politicians, military leaders and a bevy of TV cameras, the commander in chief signed the "Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act." He's good at…

  • Bathroom Wars

    More than 30 years ago, conservatives managed to defeat the proposed Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution, which would have added "sex" to the Fourteenth Amendment's guarantee of equal protection, by frightening women into believing that it would outlaw separate bathrooms for men and women. …

  • Will Bob Corker Save the GOP?

    "Pat, sometimes it seems like our friends want me to go over the cliff with flags flying," President Reagan once told me. Today, it is "Bibi" Netanyahu and the neocons howling "kill the deal" and "bomb Iran" who are shoving the Republican Party toward the cliff. Should a Republican Congress…
