Remind me again: What is so great about Europe?

Remind me again: What is so great about Europe?

Sol W. Sanders   Maybe it’s because you can fly faster from America to Europe than westward to the U.S.? But for whatever reason, a standard politically correct mantra these days is how if we would just imitate the Europeans, everything would be better. Which of the accepted five categories of propaganda this argument falls […]

Benghazi: Obama knew

Benghazi: Obama knew

Jeffrey T. Kuhner President Obama has been caught in a web of deception — one that threatens to ensnarl his re-election bid. Multiple e-mails and diplomatic cables reveal that the administration deliberately deceived the public. Libyagate now haunts Mr. Obama, relentlessly eroding his credibility and trustworthiness. It is a stake aimed at the heart of […]

McGovern learned later in life what businessmen must endure from big government

Wesley Pruden Barring a really major blunder – such as revealing that he was born in Lower Volta or endorsing inter-species marriage (the next big civil-rights issue) – this election is beginning to look like it’s Mitt Romney’s to lose. On the morning after the third and mercifully last presidential debate, nearly all the major […]

U.S. global competitiveness ranking: From 1 to 7th since 2007

John J. Metzler UNITED NATIONS — As the seemingly interminable election campaign nears the finish line, there are a few glaringly missing topics which remain almost untouched.

Boob tube culture: What if the U.S. electorate had been educated to think?

Boob tube culture: What if the U.S. electorate had been educated to think?

Lev Navrozov I am going to say something I know may not be popular with the readers. I spent half of my life in Stalin’s Russia. I was born there, got married there, and I never knew what the television set looks like. My mother would say, “Why do you need to watch television — […]

Thugocracy: From messianiac to Nixonian

The result: Mr. Obama’s credibility is eroding, his popularity dwindling. The electorate is slowly but decisively turning against him. The administration has been caught in a […]

Unfair and off balance: Panic spreads even to the media class

Unfair and off balance: Panic spreads even to the media class

Wesley Pruden There’s not a dry mattress, pair of skivvies or delicate lace panty anywhere out there. The president is chasing an imaginary bird, the pollsters are choking back panic (“has our methodology been wrong?”) and the media glitteries are even more hysterical than usual (“how can anyone as wonderful as us be so wrong?”). […]

Open letter to the American people: We Soviet emigres have already seen this movie

Open letter to the American people: We Soviet emigres have already seen this movie

Lev Navrozov Am I to believe that I have wasted forty years of my life in this country trying to explain the nature of dictatorship and what it meant to have been born and lived in Stalin’s paradise the first half of my life? Have I failed to pass on to you my first-hand knowledge […]

What is our once-free press good for? Absolutely nothing

What is our once-free press good for? Absolutely nothing

Sol W. Sanders   The great American newspaper is dying, done in by incompetent journalists and management unable to deal with asphyxiation brought on by the digital revolution. It is going out not with a bang, but a whimper. That simpering you see is subservience to the Obama administration, sometimes with such intellectual corruption that […]

From trust to disgust in the American press

From trust to disgust in the American press

Wesley Pruden The distrust of the media becomes total. That’s hardly news to anyone, except to the clueless editors and publishers of the big newspapers and the big mules of the television networks, who see their audiences shrinking and wonder why. A new survey by Gallup asked Americans how much trust and confidence they have […]
