Joe Guzzardi: Congress indifferent to Puerto Rico’s tragedy

Joe Guzzardi: Congress indifferent to Puerto Rico’s tragedy

By Joe Guzzardi After an absence of more than 50 years, I returned to Puerto Rico this month to view firsthand Hurricane Maria’s devastation. I spent most of my formative years growing up in Puerto Rico, attended a local high school, and took my first post-college job on the island. My emotional ties to Puerto […]

Victor Davis Hanson: Why FISA-gate is scarier than Watergate

Victor Davis Hanson: Why FISA-gate is scarier than Watergate

The Watergate scandal of 1972-74 was uncovered largely because of outraged Democratic politicians and a bulldog media. They both claimed that they had saved American democracy from the Nixon administration’s attempt to warp the CIA and FBI to cover up an otherwise minor, though illegal, political break-in. In the Iran-Contra affair of 1985-87, the media […]

José Niño: Get ready for the war on meat

José Niño: Get ready for the war on meat

By José Niño Plant-based diets, especially vegan diets, seem to be all the rage these days. Based on the practice of eschewing animal products, veganism has attracted a broad coalition of interest groups — ranging from animal rights to environmental activists — who believe that veganism is the most ethical and sustainable way of promoting human […]

Ben Crystal: Get out

Ben Crystal: Get out

By Ben Crystal As I’m writing this, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is staging some kind of junior-varsity filibuster on the House floor. The old girl is apparently making a stand against the “GOP’S LACK OF HUMANITY” regarding those poor victims of President Donald Trump and his evil Republican cabal’s racism: illegal aliens. At least, I […]

Harry Alexander: McCain-Coons immigration bill is problematic

Harry Alexander: McCain-Coons immigration bill is problematic

By Harry Alexander Sen. John McCain (R/D-Ariz) this week introduced a bill that would give amnesty to at least three million illegal aliens WITHOUT immediately offering any assistance for border security. His bill does “promise” the issue will be looked at sometime in the future. What planet has McCain been on where he thinks his […]

Mike Tully “Substantial Disruption”: The Nunes memo and Trump’s greatest fear

Mike Tully “Substantial Disruption”: The Nunes memo and Trump’s greatest fear

By Mike Tully The Nunes memo was not just a “nothing burger,” it was a double-whopper nothing burger that drew derision and disdain.  It’s a pundit’s piñata, with commentators hammering the memo and its hyperventilating advocates.  MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program aired a video mashup comparing the hype over the memo to Geraldo Rivera’s “Al Capone’s […]

Phil Richardson: Electioneering 365 days a year

Phil Richardson: Electioneering 365 days a year

By Phil Richardson Once upon a time in the far distant past, people would hitch the horse to the buggy and drive into town to hear what the candidate had to say about running the nation. Some weeks later, there would be an election, after which we would hear from the winner sporadically, perhaps not […]

Ilan Berman: A Turkish-American divorce?

Ilan Berman: A Turkish-American divorce?

By Ilan Berman The United States “is an enemy country. It is a serious threat to our country’s existence, its unity, integrity, present and the future. It is carrying out an open attack, and an undeclared war…” Those aren’t the words of the radicals of the Islamic State, whose “caliphate” has been dismembered by America […]

Ben Crystal: The State of their Union

Ben Crystal: The State of their Union

By Ben Crystal Let’s all thank the Democratic Party for helping out following President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address last Tuesday evening.  Rather than keep us awake following a solid speech, albeit one that ran about 30 minutes longer than necessary, they offered their response during the president’s address, giving us all […]

Victor Davis Hanson: It may be time to transfer seats of power to other cities

Victor Davis Hanson: It may be time to transfer seats of power to other cities

Where the seats of power are located matters. Given the populist revolt in the United States and Europe against the so-called “global elite,” it is time to refigure the geography of governmental and transnational power. Take the United Nations. Much of the international body’s perceived negatives derive from being in the world’s richest and most […]
