‘Diversity’ in action

January 20, 2015

Islamic terrorist attacks in Europe, and European governments’ counter-attacks are more than just a passing news story.

And this is by no means the last of the Read More

January 2, 2015

Some of us, who are old enough to remember the old television police series “Dragnet,” may remember Sgt. Joe Friday saying, “Just the facts, ma’am.” But that would be completely out of place today.

Nylons for nothing in Cuba

There’s an old Cold War joke — pre-pantyhose — that to defeat communism we should empty our B-52 bombers of nuclear weapons and instead drop nylons over the Soviet Union. Flood the Russians with the soft consumer culture of capitalism, seduce them with Western contact and commerce, love-bomb them into freedom. We did win the Read More

Jeb Bush’s hurdles

December 26, 2014

In 1968, a singularly traumatic year — assassinations, urban riots, 16,899 Americans killed in Vietnam — Vice President Hubert Humphrey, the ebullient Minnesotan, said his presidential campaign was about “the politics of joy.” This was considered infelicitous. He was, however, right to insist that, whatever America’s vicissitudes, the nation’s premises explain its trajectory and validate Read More

Take the punch bowl away from the Fed’s party

Cuba derangement syndrome
