  • The NAACP's Fomenters of Fear

    This week, the NAACP made national front-page headlines with a local press release demanding that the feds investigate the hanging death of a local man in Port Gibson, Miss. Derrick Johnson, president of the NAACP Mississippi State Conference, immediately invoked the specter of a "hate crime." In…

  • The Value of Nurses

    Some very fine physicians, in California and in Arizona, tried to clean up the mess she left, but it was the nurses who took care of me. Nursing, I came to understand, means far more than doling out shots and pills, although keeping track of all the different medicines I was on was a challenge,…

  • DEMOCRACY STILL HAS A CHANCE IN TUNISIA

    If you read most of the stories on the terrible terrorist attack in Tunisia recently, you would have, at best, an incomplete picture of the reality of that lovely little state, which seemingly reaches out geographically to Italy from the northern borders of Africa. I have not seen any analysis of…

  • Are NGOs Agents of Subversion?

    Though "Bibi" Netanyahu won re-election last week, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations will still look into whether the State Department financed a clandestine effort to defeat him. Reportedly, State funneled $350,000 to an American NGO called OneVoice, which has an Israeli…

  • LOOKING FOR A FRESH FACE

    There are rare moments in history when Americans have sought the comfort of experience over the excitement of novelty. But there are other times when Americans have been drawn to the fresh and the new, which is why Woodrow Wilson, John F. Kennedy, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama emerged as strong…

  • Does Starbucks Want an Honest Conversation?

    Starbucks is hoping to lead a national conversation about race. According to a video released by founder Howard Schultz, Starbucks baristas are encouraged to scrawl "race together" on coffee cups before placing them in the hands of customers. This hollow bit of moral exhibitionism is supposed to…

  • What Would Ike Do?

    In November 1956, President Eisenhower, enraged he had not been forewarned of their invasion of Egypt, ordered the British, French and Israelis to get out of Suez and Sinai. How far we have fallen from the America of Ike and John Foster Dulles has been on painful display this March. An Israeli…

  • The Ryan Giroux Problem

    What was Ryan Giroux doing free on the streets of a Phoenix suburb — free, that is, to go on a shooting rampage that killed one person, left five more injured and traumatized countless witnesses? So how can it be racist to stand up for the victim?

  • EVERY ADULT OVER 50 SHOULD GET A COLONOSCOPY

    I so wish we had known decades ago what we know now: Every adult over the age of 50 should be screened for colorectal cancer. Diagnosed and treated early, it has one of the highest survival rates among that collection of malignant maladies we call "cancer." My dad was otherwise quite healthy and…

  • SANCTIMONY AND GRANDSTANDING ARE MORE FUN THAN FREE SPEECH

    After police officer Darren Wilson fatally shot Michael Brown last summer in Ferguson, Missouri, the media erupted in terror at the prospect of young black men being gunned down by over-excitable white cops. Over at Salon, Brittney Cooper said the Brown shooting proved that black people "are prey"…

  • TALK IS CHEAP WHEN VOTES ARE ON THE LINE

    In most countries, if the electoral front-runner had announced his faith in a certain foreign policy for years, such as the formation of a Palestinian Arab state next to Israel (living in peace and all that stuff), you might think foolishly that he actually believed it. Unbelievably, just a day…

  • The Big, Fat "American Worker Recruitment First" Lie of H-1B

    You've heard it from Big Government lobbyists. You've heard it from Big Business lackeys in both political parties. The H-1B foreign guest worker program, they claim, requires American employers to first show that they searched for and tried to recruit American workers before tapping an…

  • What Congress Can't Do

    If you can't even move a bill creating a fund for the victims of sex trafficking, and if the president's noncontroversial and, indeed, much praised nominee for attorney general isn't moving forward as a result, then you can pretty much conclude that Congress is poised to accomplish less than…

  • Will the GOP Kick It Away?

    Why, then, would the Republican Party, with a chance to sweep it all in 2016, want to return us to the nightmare days of George W., which caused America to rise up and throw the party out in 2006 and 2008? Do Republicans really believe that America wants a return to the Cold War with Moscow and…

  • A GREAT SPEECH TURNS 50

    The events that March came on a gale of fury, and with furious speed: the "Bloody Sunday" civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery, the confrontation at the Edmund Pettus Bridge, the tense meeting between Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama and President Lyndon B. Johnson. Martin Luther King Jr.…

  • Is the European Union Dying?

    As the European Coal and Steel Community of Jean Monnet evolved into the EU, we were told a "United States of Europe" was at hand, modeled on the USA. There will be a North American Union of the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and a Latin America Union of the Mercosur trade partnership. In an essay,…

  • It's Not Just Iran You Can't Trust

    "Traitors!" screamed the headline of the New York Daily News. "Dangerous and irresponsible," opined The Washington Post's David Ignatius. President Obama offered that it was "ironic" that the senators were on the same side as supposed "hardliners" in Iran. The occasion for all of this snorting…

  • SENATORS' LETTER TO IRAN'S LEADERS SETS DANGEROUS PRECEDENT

    Since his inauguration in 2009, President Obama's harshest critics -- all Republicans -- have grown increasingly disdainful, resentful, even hateful. This week, that disrespect for Obama and his presidency reached a new low when 47 Republican senators wrote a letter to Iranian leaders suggesting…

  • BARACK OBAMA: A MAN FOR THE AGES!

    Everyone says President Obama is a feckless commander, weak in statecraft, especially compared to the great leaders of the Western world, such as Reagan and Churchill. I believe this does Obama a great injustice. Sure, Obama could have left a small contingent of American troops in Iraq, preserved…
