‘Playing God’ with birth rates: The soft underbelly of geopolitics

‘Playing God’ with birth rates: The soft underbelly of geopolitics

Sol W. Sanders   Paying a visit to my phlegmatic Punjabi physician in New Delhi in the early 1960s, I found him uncharacteristically upset. Amniocentesis had come to India and some of his patients were asking him to abort fetuses if they were female. Out of moral scruple, he was refusing, losing patients — and […]

Dirty Harry, dirty Democrats

Dirty Harry, dirty Democrats

Jeffrey T. Kuhner Democrats are accusing Mitt Romney of being a criminal. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid claims the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has not paid taxes in 10 years. What is Mr. Reid’s source for this explosive allegation? He states it is an “anonymous” investor in Bain Capital. Leave aside that a Bain investor […]

Gaffes? No, Romney nailed it, speaking truth to media-bureaucratic power

Gaffes? No, Romney nailed it, speaking truth to media-bureaucratic power

Sol W. Sanders   Poor ol’ Mitt Romney. He forgot politicians are supposed to cater to the media. And when he spoke truth to power of the left-wing comme il faut Anglo-American journalist mob, they came down on him like the proverbial ton of bricks. And so what were all those uncommon observations labeled “gaffes” […]

The gay agenda for Christians vs the gay agenda for Islamists

The gay agenda for Christians vs the gay agenda for Islamists

Jeffrey T. Kuhner The homosexual lobby wants to outlaw Christianity. This is the real meaning behind the uproar over Chick-fil-A. The chicken sandwich franchise has become a lightning rod for the culture war. Liberals despise it; conservatives back it. Supporters of gay marriage want to prevent the Atlanta-based chain from expanding, demanding new restaurant permits […]

Uh oh. Liberal Jewish Democrats realize Obama is not the One

Uh oh. Liberal Jewish Democrats realize Obama is not the One

Wesley Pruden The Democrats have a Jewish problem, and his name is Barack Obama. Reluctantly, many Jews, loyal Democrats by birth and tradition, have concluded that he’s not The One they thought he was. With even greater reluctance, the White House has concluded that their Jewish problem is real, growing, and they better do something […]

World unhinged: A bumper crop of bizarre

World unhinged: A bumper crop of bizarre

Sol W. Sanders   Settling in with a drink and interesting talk a few years ago — it would be the last session we had, unhappily — with Ed Seidenstecker, the best of the WWII American Japan scholars, the conversation took a serious turn. As we dissolved in that witlessness that overtakes one in Hawaii, […]

From the safety of the West, recalling Stalin’s infinitely dangerous madness

From the safety of the West, recalling Stalin’s infinitely dangerous madness

Lev Navrozov Let me remind my dear readers that I was born in 1928, that is, I was to live in Stalin’s hell on earth. Created in pre-Soviet Russia were works of genius (such as those of Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, or Chekhov), which were translated into the languages of all culturally advanced countries. The Russian classical […]

Another ‘leading-from-behind-triumph’: Syria’s ‘nationalist’ disaster makes way for something worse

Another ‘leading-from-behind-triumph’: Syria’s ‘nationalist’ disaster makes way for something worse

Sol W. Sanders   Whatever develops out of the bloody, chaotic mess Syria has become, it is unlikely that the short-term outcome will be good or the long-term prospects much brighter. One has only to recall the dozens of post-World War II coups that preceded the arrival of the Assad/Alawite/Baathist dictatorship in 1970, a dictatorship […]

Congressional probe of Arpaio evidence could dwarf Watergate

Congressional probe of Arpaio evidence could dwarf Watergate

Jeffrey T. Kuhner This column was published orginally by Times247.com and The Washington Times National Weekly. America may be facing a constitutional crisis. Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., has made a startling declaration: President Obama’s birth certificate is fraudulent. If true — and I stress if — then this scandal dwarfs Watergate. In […]

Escape from the USSR and immigration to USA: We did it our way, and legally

Escape from the USSR and immigration to USA: We did it our way, and legally

Lev Navrozov The year was 1969. To an outsider, it would seem that the occupants of that white stone house on the hill, acres of birch trees, a cherry orchard, and surrounded by a high fence are happily enjoying their life. We worked at home. Rarely, my wife, chief editor of the Soviet branch of […]
