Robert Carter: What scientists really think about Global Warming

Robert Carter: What scientists really think about Global Warming

By Robert Carter Many scientists have either adopted the extreme “alarmist” or the extreme “denialist” view of human-caused global warming, but both are incorrect. The majority of scientists, most of whom are independent of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), espouse views representing a balanced summary of the available scientific information. Such […]

Michael Barone: Biden decision leaves both parties in disarray

By Michael Barone Joe Biden has made it official: He is not running for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. It’s the latest development in a presidential campaign cycle that has not been going according to script. Biden said that personal factors played a part in his decision.

Ilan Berman: Putin isn’t winning in Syria

By Ilan Berman Don’t believe the hype surrounding Russia’s involvement in Syria. Ever since President Vladimir Putin launched a major escalation of the 4 1/2-year-old conflict there last month, Western media has been awash with commentary about the Kremlin’s strategy, with most interpreting it as a function of Moscow’s strength — and Washington’s weakness.

Ben Crystal: Democrats to America: We hate you

Ben Crystal: Democrats to America: We hate you

By Ben Crystal If you’re anything like me, then the members of the Democratic Party hate you. And I don’t mean they disagree with your politics. I don’t even mean they disagree vehemently with your politics. I mean the Democratic Party despises you with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns. And lest you think […]

Emil Franzi: Why the unreasonable fear of weapons?

By Emil Franzi I grew up in Glendale, an LA suburb. At 14, I purchased my first rifle without legally needing parental approval, although I acquired it. At 18, I bought my first handgun mail order — in California. My buddy Richie at 14 bought an old Winchester from a gun store in Burbank and […]

Victor Davis Hanson: Sanctuary cities as a new confederacy

Victor Davis Hanson: Sanctuary cities as a new confederacy

There are now 340 sanctuary cities – and the list is growing. All of them choose to ignore federal immigration law by refusing to report detained undocumented immigrants to federal authorities under most circumstances. Partly as a result, deportations of those who entered the United States illegally are at a 10-year low – even according […]

Ilan Berman: Ukraine’s Memory Palace

Ilan Berman: Ukraine’s Memory Palace

By Ilan Berman On a leafy street in the Ukrainian capital, just steps from the ornate building that houses the country’s parliament, sits what is perhaps the nation’s most powerful weapon in its protracted battle of ideas with Russia. There, tucked away in a once beautiful tsarist-era building, are the offices of the Ukrainian National […]

Michael Barone: Hillary scores debate win — among Democrats

Michael Barone: Hillary scores debate win — among Democrats

By Michael Barone Going into the Democrats’ first presidential debate Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton seems to have banked on one thing: that far fewer Americans would be watching than watched the Republican debates in August and September. That assumption proved correct. Early Nielsen ratings indicate that 13 million viewers tuned in. That’s more than the […]
