Dangerous: An undetected Russian sub and the ‘likeability’ factor in U.S. politics

Noticing Romney’s unnoticed energy proposal

Noticing Romney’s unnoticed energy proposal

Sol W. Sanders   Stolid Mitt Romney has come up with an energy plan with a stinger in its tail. The mainstream media, fixated on distractions of the Democratic matador’s cape, virtually ignored it. Energy aficionados gave it a ho-hum reception since it calls on hoary common-sense arguments. But the plan contains a magnificent hidden […]

How the media treats Joe Biden and how it treats Todd Akin: Who are the real extremists?

How the media treats Joe Biden and how it treats Todd Akin: Who are the real extremists?

Jeffrey T. Kuhner Vice President Joseph R. Biden is mentally unstable, and it’s time for Republicans to point it out. For years, Mr. Biden has been making outrageous comments that reveal not only his low intelligence, but also a dangerous detachment from reality. Yet the liberal media refuse to hold him accountable.

Stalin’s dentist: Talent, that mysterious quality, is a rare thing

Lev Navrozov England was our first love. Good Old England. There was no way for us who studied English to go and live there, which was our impossible dream.

Hotel California: Those who can have already checked out

The Cheney precedent: Will Ryan serve as ‘assistant president’?

Sanders   Jack Garner, a Texan whom Franklin Delano Roosevelt chose as his first vice president for “balance,” put it succinctly: The vice presidency was “not worth a bucket of warm p–” (later cleaned up to “spit”). But Garner, ironically enough, helped block FDR’s power grab when that most charismatic of presidents tried […]

Sacrosanct social safety net: Why devout Catholic Paul Ryan threatens cafeteria Catholics

Jeffrey T. Kuhner Rep. Paul Ryan poses a mortal threat to our social safety net. This is the argument being made against him by many liberal Catholics.

Say this for the French: Passionate about American popular culture

Say this for the French: Passionate about American popular culture

John J. Metzler PARIS — One of the more common misperceptions in transatlantic relations is the near instinctive knee-jerk comment that “the French don’t like Americans.” That is unless you overlook much of the music on French radio which is American, a considerable segment of prime time TV are American programs, and a majority of […]

From late-night arrests in the USSR to Soros-funded ‘progressive’ assaults on freedom in the U.S.

From late-night arrests in the USSR to Soros-funded ‘progressive’ assaults on freedom in the U.S.

Lev Navrozov I was born in Moscow; I went to a Soviet school, where I discovered that there were things one should never mention in class. In particular, my parents told me never to reveal to my classmates any conversations we were having at home and never to discuss anything going on in our family. […]
