  • Outsourcing: The Last Talking Point?

    When I fretted to my friend and colleague Jay Nordlinger that Republicans may learn the wrong lessons from success in 2014, he noted sagely that he prefers to wait until the results are in before drawing any lessons. While that ought to have stayed my hand, I think some contours are discernible,…

  • The New York Times' War on Gun-Owning Rape Victims

    Nasty New York Times editorial writer David Firestone pretends to care about campaign scare-mongering. But what he and his elitist ilk really fear are independent-thinking women who have dared to exercise their First Amendment powers to defend their Second Amendment rights.

  • A GLIMMER OF HOPE SHINES IN TUNISIA

    WASHINGTON -- These gray days, one hardly expects to see any bright dawns of a new world breaking. Even if an event really IS positive, it is usually so complicated that the average American can't quickly "get" it. It has been that way with the complex story of Tunisia, a country of 11 million…

    Democrats want everyone to vote: old, young, white, black, Hispanic, Asian, citizen, non-citizen. Wait, what was that last one again? We'll get to that.

  • FEAR MAY WIN ELECTIONS, BUT MAKES GOVERNING HARD

    "Keep calm and carry on." -- British government poster, 1939 According to Hollywood, most disasters feature government or institutional figures who try to downplay the scale of catastrophe, at least publicly, in order to prevent mass panic. Rightly or wrongly, these fictional leaders want to shield…

  • TWO VISIONS DESTINED TO COLLIDE

    PITTSBURGH -- One saw an America on the rise, the other saw an America in peril. One saw government as a vital tool to smooth away the roughness of life and assure widespread freedom, the other saw government as an intrusion in the natural order of life and the enemy of freedom. One spoke of a…

  • A REVISIONIST TAKE ON PRESIDENT OBAMA

    LOS ANGELES -- "Democrats Worry Obama Is Helping Their Rivals" was the headline over an article last Friday in the Los Angeles Times. I think that was the one thousandth piece I have read in the last couple of months saying that the president has low approval ratings and will hurt Democratic…

  • JEANNE SHAHEEN'S EBOLA OPPORTUNITIES TEAM

    In this year's midterm elections, New Hampshire's Scott Brown is taking on the slickest Democratic politician since John Edwards. Incumbent Sen. Jeanne Shaheen presents herself as a regular mom who "rearranges the dishes in the dishwasher if it is packed by someone else" -- as she told The Boston…

  • Where Was President Obama?

    President Obama says he's "shaken" by this week's violent attacks on three soldiers in Ottawa by an Islamic jihadist. He immediately phoned Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to offer support and "solidarity." He vowed to "remain vigilant."

  • Michael Brown and Race Hoaxes

    Back in August, when news first broke of a shooting in Ferguson, Mo., the media world, perpetually tingling with eagerness for white-on-black violence stories, plunged into delirium. An unarmed, black 18-year-old "gentle giant" had been shot in the back while running away from a white police…

  • Debunking Christie's Minimum Wage Mythology

    If there is any upside to the constant blabber from a politician such as Chris Christie, it is that he blurts out what others like him would never say in public — for instance, his recent remarks at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    Everything you need to know about Beltway nepotism, corporate cronyism and corruption can be found in the biography of Robert Hunter Biden. Where are the Occupy Wall Street rabble-rousers and enemies of elitist privilege when you need them? Straining their neck muscles to look the other way.

  • PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS IN IRAQ IS UNTOLD STORY

    WASHINGTON -- Avidly reading and watching the news, from ISIS to Ebola recently, I have been repeatedly surprised by the absence of one rather important word: Christian. In all the innumerable words and pictures that have told the misery-ridden stories of these two sagas, almost none have attempted…

  • SMALL-TOWN HEROES

    Oh, yes, and he's remembered, too, for that play against the Clippers of Newburyport High in November 1967. That's when Dickie Jauron, as he was known then, caught the ball with three seconds left in the first half and, conscious that he was landing on the 1-yard line rather than in the end zone,…
