  • WHAT YOU WON'T READ IN THE PAPERS ABOUT THE 'CENTRAL PARK FIVE'

    New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is demanding a quick settlement of the lawsuit brought by the five men convicted of one of the most sickening crimes in the city's history: the attack on the Central Park jogger in 1989. The plaintiffs are demanding $50 million apiece -- for going to prison for a rape…

  • The Next Step on Affirmative Action

    In the mid-90s, when affirmative action was a hot topic in California, I got a call from a television network asking me whether I would be available to do a segment on affirmative action. "So are you for or against affirmative action?" I explained: I'm against affirmative action, if you mean do I…

  • NBC's Cognitive Dissonant Hack Syndrome

    I've always thought entrenched left-wing journalists in Washington needed their heads examined. According to The Washington Post this week, NBC News hired a "psychological consultant" to examine why flailing "Meet the Press" moderator David Gregory has been bombing in the ratings. The overpriced…

  • Nationalism, Not NATO, Is Our Great Ally

    With Vladimir Putin having bloodlessly annexed Crimea and hinting that his army might cross the border to protect the Russians of East Ukraine, Washington is abuzz with talk of dispatching U.S. troops to Eastern Europe. But unless we have lost our minds, we are not going to fight Russia over…

  • Memo to: Republican Candidates, Answer War on Women

    Some strategists suggest (they have for years) the key for Republican candidates is to downplay social issues in favor of economic arguments. Pocketbook appeals are great, but the premise — that social issues damage Republican candidates — is shaky at best. When Pew asked women voters to rank a…

  • JOURNALISTS HAVE BECOME BARGAINING CHIPS IN SYRIA

    WASHINGTON -- Since they first emerged as historic characters late in the 19th century, foreign correspondents have played a crucial and inimitably romantic role in journalism. Foreign correspondents were, until World War II, almost always men -- and adventurous, searching, tough-minded men who…

  • RACES TO WATCH IN 2014

    The political party on the defensive tries to portray the gubernatorial, House and Senate races in off-year elections as individual races without a unifying theme. The last three governors of the state were women, one Democratic and two Republican. Of the 14 governors since mid-century, seven…

  • CURRENT DEPORTATION POLICY IS IMPOLITIC AND INHUMANE

    Jessica Colotl is a gainfully employed college graduate, a fresh-faced young woman working as a legal assistant at an Atlanta law firm. She's also a symbol of a sharp dispute between President Obama and a group of his now-wavering allies -- Latino voters who detest his deportation policy. Colotl,…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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

    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…
