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 […]

Michael Barone: Are both parties incapable of governing?

Michael Barone: Are both parties incapable of governing?

By Michael Barone Important parts of our two great political parties seem bent on demonstrating that their parties are incapable of governing coherently. House Republican rebels have pushed Speaker John Boehner out the door without advancing a plausible successor and have risked leaving the speaker’s chair vacant. Hillary Clinton has backpedaled and flip-flopped to fortify […]

Thomas Sowell: The ‘gun control’ farce

Thomas Sowell: The ‘gun control’ farce

By Thomas Sowell President Obama’s intrusion into the mourning community of Roseburg, Oregon, in order to promote his political crusade for stronger gun control laws, is part of a pattern of his using various other sites of shooting rampages in the past to promote this long-standing crusade of the political left. The zealotry of gun […]

Ben Crystal: Come and take them

Ben Crystal: Come and take them

By Ben Crystal In the wake of the tragedy on the campus of Umpqua Community College, President Barack Obama asked commanded Americans to “politicize” a violent Muslim’s attack on a crowd of innocent college students and teachers. Of course, asking Democrats to politicize tragedy is like asking Michael Moore if he wants another doughnut. These […]

Bill Tatro: I am entitled!!

Bill Tatro: I am entitled!!

By Bill Tatro Most are familiar with the Participation Rate as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and its continual decline. Much has been made, pro and con, about this number. Some say it underestimates the situation and others that it exaggerates the situation. It points out the lack of jobs or it […]

Emil Franzi: Hillary’s gun ploy raises other issues

Emil Franzi: Hillary’s gun ploy raises other issues

By Emil Franzi Hillary Clinton wants to prevent future sociopaths from copying well-publicized prior sociopaths who commit mass murder with firearms by holding the gun manufacturer responsible for the actions of the user. That concept is not completely foreign to a litigious culture that now has seven lawyers for every cop. It fits the legal […]

Phil Richardson: Famous political bosses of the modern era

Phil Richardson: Famous political bosses of the modern era

The boss era that created guys like Pendergast and Daley was also the era of personal politics on a local level. The great SNL skit of Belushi as the ghost of Daley with a turkey under his arm coming into the Irish Bar tells a real story. The Daley’s took care of lots of little […]
