Welfare. Democrats view taxes as contributions to charity. (Seriously. You should talk to a few Democrats if you doubt it.) Consequently, when Democrats designed a welfare system that cost taxpayers trillions, they considered it a double good deed. Welfare taxes benefited the poor and forced Americans to do the right thing.† Over the years, however, [...]

From the beginning, McCain-Feingold was a political Trojan Horse. Its stated purpose did not reflect its actual purpose. Its stated purpose was to clean up politics by tightly regulating the amount of money political parties and candidates could accept from donors.

Any journalist who has studied [George] Soros with sufficient attentiveness has learned to greet his public utterances with skepticism. Soros evinces, at times, what can only be called a professional pride in his skill at deception. His work affords him ample opportunity to hone this skill.

The main reason the CIA no longer recruits agents from top-ranked schools is because it can’t. “The men and women who teach today’s college students view the CIA with suspicion, if not disdain,” as Beinart put it.

Multiculturalism, which is not so much about the appreciation of diverse human cultures, as it is about the theology of gender, race and class oppression, is the academic religion that sanctions these campus witch-hunts. Its imperatives are established in the “student orientation” sessions required of every entering freshman. “A central goal of these [orientation] programs,” [...]

As the institutional manifestation of George Soros, the Shadow Party operates in two distinct spheres, the financial and the political. The financial nerve center of Soros’s empire is an investment firm called Soros Fund Management LLC, located at 888 Seventh Avenue in Manhattan. Political intrigues are facilitated mainly through the Open Society Institute (OSI), whose [...]

In the business of mothers dying, fate dealt me a better hand than it did Saul Bellow. My mother lived to a ripe age and was vigorous to the end. When she had her first stroke my children were already adults, and had given me two grandchildren besides. I was well into the cycle of [...]

Following the liberation of Baghdad, historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. wrote, “President George W. Bush has made a fatal change in the foreign policy of the United States. He has repudiated the strategy that won the Cold War—the combination of containment and deterrence … The Bush Doctrine reverses all that. The essence of our new strategy [...]

On a dark Thursday in March the telephone rang and I picked up the receiver to hear my youngest child say “Something terrible has happened,” and I knew that a family member was gone.
When death takes someone you love, there is no looking back. And there is only looking back. You can’t complain there’s been [...]
