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 […]

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 […]

Joe Guzzardi: Congress beholden to donors at American workers’ expense

Joe Guzzardi: Congress beholden to donors at American workers’ expense

By Joe Guzzardi The most effective tool for ending illegal immigration, and opening up jobs for American workers, is curiously off the table in the ceaseless congressional amnesty negotiations. Enforcement hawks want to know what happened to E-Verify, the free, online, accurate program that checks new hires’ legal authorization to work. E-Verify is popular with over […]

Hans von Spakovsky: Immigration legislation should stress border security and enforcement, not incentivize bad behavior

Hans von Spakovsky: Immigration legislation should stress border security and enforcement, not incentivize bad behavior

By Hans von Spakovsky President Donald Trump has kept the promises he made to voters about immigration. At his direction, the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security have resumed enforcement of our immigration laws. They are going after sanctuary cities that harbor criminal aliens; stepping up removals of illegal aliens; hiring more border agents […]

Ben Crystal: The Mueller Show should be over

Ben Crystal: The Mueller Show should be over

By Ben Crystal All right kids, that’s enough. It’s high time that President Donald Trump fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Actually, it has been high time for the president to send Mueller back to the lecture circuit, but we have passed the point of Mueller’s flying circus being entertaining, and it being a spec script […]

Victor Davis Hanson: Projected costs for California’s high-speed rail project have soared

Victor Davis Hanson: Projected costs for California’s high-speed rail project have soared

Nobody quite knows who built Stonehenge some 5,000 years ago in southern England. The mysterious ring of huge stone monoliths stands mute. Californians may leave behind similarly enigmatic monuments for puzzled future generations. Along a 119-mile pathway in central California from Bakersfield to Madera, there are now huge, quarter-finished cement overpasses. These are the totems […]
