OXON HILL, Md. -- The first “people” I recognized on arriving at last week's Conservative Political Action Conference just outside Washington were two “stormtroopers” and a Wookiee from the 1977 film “Star Wars.” Some of the speeches also expressed sentiments from the past, though...

If anyone wanted to pick a time and place where the political Left's avowed concern for minorities was definitively exposed as a fraud, it would be now -- and the place would be New York City, where far-Left Mayor Bill de Blasio has launched an attack on charter schools, cutting their funding,...

Liam Neeson is a badass, okay? You know it, I know it — it’s a fact of life. The man kicked Batman’s butt, taught Obi-Wan Kenobi everything he knew, commanded the gods of Mount Olympus and killed, like, half of Paris. On Saturday, Neeson taught President Obama how to deal with Vladimir...

On Monday, former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden beamed himself into a packed room at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, telling the crowd he broke the law to expose NSA spying because “the Constitution was being violated on a massive scale.” Snowden...

A new Gallup survey finds that the rate of uninsured adults in the United States is falling, but it's not clear what that really tells us about the implementation of President Obama's health care law. At first glance, the news that the U.S. uninsured rate has declined to 15.9 percent would...

Just try to envision the scene: A newly elected Republican mayor of a large American city takes steps to close down some of the best schools serving an almost exclusively minority population. You know how it would go. We'd be hearing that Republicans "hate" the poor.

Winston Churchill once advised, “Study history, study history. In history, lies all the secrets of statecraft.” Churchill's recommendation may be good advice for us in light of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's recent controversial remarks on the escalating crisis in Ukraine....

I guess I shouldn’t be shocked that people would prefer to listen to a regularly nude celebrity than the man who single-handedly informed the world that the government was spying on them.

For those of us who work in the national security arena, there has been much to criticize concerning how Glenn Greenwald has handled the treasure trove of classified information provided to them by Edward Snowden.

When Edward Snowden leaked massive troves of information about the National Security Agency's collection of electronic information, he started a debate over the tradeoffs between security and privacy. At least that's how President Obama framed it, arguing, “we have to make some important...
