Obama is reversing Reagan’s Cold War victory, inviting new hot wars

Speaking at Berlin's Brandenberg Gate in October 1987, President Ronald Reagan called for Soviet leader Gorbachev to "tear down this wall."

Jeffrey T. Kuhner President Obama is on the verge of an historic triumph. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the American Left has been bitter about America’s victory in the Cold War. For decades, they preached moral equivalence between the United States and the Soviet Union. In their view, America was to blame for [...]

Time for Obama to make up his mind on the Keystone pipeline? Don’t hold your breath

Liberals’ fact-free zone offer path of least resistance

USA slips again in global economic freedom survey: George W. Bush, call your office


John J. Metzler UNITED NATIONS — There used to be an advertising slogan, “We’re number two but we try harder.” Perhaps in the spirit of the times we should now revive the phrase and proclaim, “We’re number twelve, but it’s somebody else’s fault.” Thus when viewing the world’s freest economies, the U.S. has slid from [...]

Jeffrey T. Kuhner Massachusetts is becoming ground zero for a populist tax revolt. This deep blue state is finally witnessing resistance from its besieged, hard-working taxpayers. And the commonwealth’s venal Democratic establishment — along with ultra-liberal Gov. Deval Patrick — are lashing out in fury.

Sanders   Whether Obamacare continues to implode or dissolves under a Republican landslide in next year’s Congressional and 2016 presidential elections, the debris it leaves behind will be horrendous.

President Obama defends Obamacare at the White House on Oct. 21.  /AP

Sol W. Sanders   Out of the Washington political chaos of the past few weeks, two overwhelmingly critical questions have yet to be decided.

Tea Party’s victory: Americans will not forget who warned of impending disaster


Jeffrey T. Kuhner The conventional wisdom is wrong. The mainstream media — and their parrots in the Republican establishment — are claiming that President Barack Obama decisively won the government shutdown battle.
