Surrender: Republicans betrayed their own limited-government precepts

Surrender: Republicans betrayed their own limited-government precepts

Jeffrey T. Kuhner The Republican Party has capitulated to President Obama’s redistributionist tax agenda. Mr. Obama has won a significant victory. He has broken Republican ranks and effectively co-opted much of the GOP opposition. The Republican Party, especially House Speaker John A. Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, will rue the day. Many House […]

2012 marked end of American greatness

2012 marked end of American greatness

Jeffrey T. Kuhner This year has been a turning point in American history. Our constitutional republic is dying. President Obama’s re-election was more than a victory for liberalism. It represented America’s collective suicide — a national push into a fiscal, cultural and moral abyss. We are sliding toward Greece. Mr. Obama won despite chronic high […]

Running out the clock on Benghazi

Running out the clock on Benghazi

Wesley Pruden There’s no mystery about why Hillary Clinton spends so much time on airplanes to dreary places that everybody else avoids like the plague (or the stomach flu).

The stench of Benghazi: Select committee must be impaneled now

Sol W. Sanders   Despite superficial controversy either purposely manufactured by the Obama administration to cover its tracks or simply the product of a kept main stream media, fundamental issues associated with the assassination of four Americans hovers ghostlike over the political scene. Neither Gen. David Petraeus’ sexual peccadilloes — and, apparently, other high level […]

Welcome to Soviet America! (Was my 1975 1-act play prophetic?)

Lev Navrozov “Lev, this is Julie. Do you remember me?” The voice on the phone sounded familiar. She went on: “Almost forty years ago, I believe the year was 1975, I went to see your play ‘Welcome to Soviet America!’ at Carnegie Hall. It was a one-actor play, in which you played all the roles, […]

Surrender is not a strategy: What the GOP needs is principled leadership

Jeffrey T. Kuhner The long knives are out. Liberal and some neoconservative pundits are claiming the Republicans lost the 2012 presidential election for one basic reason: They have become the party of yesterday’s America. The GOP is supposedly too old, too white and too male; it allegedly appeals to a shrinking fragment of the electorate. […]
