  • The gender, race and diversity issues with Dartmouth

    Dartmouth College has a problem. Protestors occupied the president's office at the Ivy League school a couple of weeks ago and demanded more "womyn or people of color" faculty, coverage of sex-change operations on the student health plan, and "gender-neutral bathrooms," among other things.

  • Time bombs in Democratic coalition

    The Republican Party is roiling with internal conflicts, say the analysts. The Tea Party is confronting the establishment. The noninterventionists are at war (forgive the expression) with the interventionists. The libertarians would like the party to endorse same-sex marriage.

  • Charles Krauthammer against the global warming tyrants

    Last week a national treasure spoke. That would be Charles Krauthammer, syndicated columnist, television commentator and all around public sage. He also is a chess player.

  • Detroit bailout plans just paper over the problem with more money

    In Detroit's unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state's Republican governor -- both of...

  • Midterms may hinge on whether Obamacare losers outvote the winners

    If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished. The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him -- the Smoking Gun. They...

  • Obama and the myth of appeasement

    Hawks in the wild tend to be solitary creatures. But those in Washington often appear in noisy flocks.

  • This Earth Day, applaud fossil fuel sellers for overcoming climate change hysteria

    "The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That's how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we've survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things...

  • Obama must defend NATO's real red lines from Vladimir Putin's aggression in Ukraine

  • Fight federal abuse of property rights by making the government obey its own rules

    Cliven Bundy marched into my life one Friday morning in January 1992 in a protest bound for a federal courthouse in Las Vegas. He held up one side of a street-width banner that asked, “Has the West been won or has the fight just begun?” To my great relief, just as Bundy promised, nearly...
