Joe Biden’s Bid to Remake America

By |2021-04-02T14:07:59-05:00April 4th, 2021|Categories: Pat Buchanan, Politics, Presidency|

Make no mistake: Joe Biden is determined to emulate FDR and LBJ and to be remembered as a president who raised federal power to new heights. And once a Western democracy expands central power and control of the nation's resources, it never willingly gives up those gains. If Joe Biden's American Jobs Program, outlined in [...]

Who Really Imperils the Republic?

In the "domestic terrorism" at the Capitol, no protester set off a bomb, toppled a statue, or fired a weapon. Of the four who died that day, all were protesters. My guess, Minneapolis, not Capitol Hill, is where the action will be this spring, and it will not be Proud Boys keeping the cops busy, [...]

Is the Establishment Still Terrified of Trump?

By |2021-01-29T11:01:48-06:00January 29th, 2021|Categories: Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, Politics, Presidency|

For all the babbling about "democracy" we have heard in recent days, the establishment wants to eliminate the possibility that the people could rise up, and, horror of horrors, elect Donald Trump once more. As soon as the Senate received the lone article of impeachment accusing President Donald Trump of "incitement of insurrection" in the [...]

Biden’s America: One Nation or Us Versus Them?

Joe Biden's inaugural address was the most confusing, contradictory and incoherent ever delivered from the steps of the Capitol, reflective of the mind of its author and the state of the Union he now leads. "We have met the enemy and he is us," said Walt Kelly's cartoon character Pogo, half a century ago, about [...]

Exploiting the Capitol Riot to Kill Trump

By |2021-01-15T08:44:19-06:00January 14th, 2021|Categories: American Republic, Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, Presidency|

What would be the purpose of impeaching a president who hasn't been president for three months?  Answer: A conviction would strip Republicans of the right to reelect the man who got the largest number of votes in their party's history. Donald Trump has stumbled and fallen, and the establishment is not going to let slip [...]

Whither America After the 2020 Election?

By |2020-12-11T11:14:38-06:00December 11th, 2020|Categories: Civil Society, Pat Buchanan, Politics|

Though secession is unlikely, a secession of the heart has already taken place in America. We are two nations, two peoples seemingly separated indefinitely. Can a nation so divided as ours, racially, ideologically, religiously, still do great things together, as did the America of days gone by, to the amazement of the world? When the [...]

What Joe Biden’s First 100 Days Might Look Like

By |2021-01-23T13:45:37-06:00December 8th, 2020|Categories: Joseph Biden, Pat Buchanan, Politics, Presidency|

The truly formidable challenge for a President Biden will be China, which is not the China of 2016 that Vice President Biden recalls. The Biden-Harris administration will confront "a pandemic, an economic crisis, calls for racial justice and climate change. The team being assembled will meet these challenges on Day One." So declares the transition [...]

A Historic Presidency

By |2020-11-28T22:16:42-06:00November 28th, 2020|Categories: Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, Presidency|

Can anyone believe that Bush Republicans or the "Never-Trumpers" are the future of the party when one considers the massive and visceral reaction of millions of Trump voters even to the idea of conceding his defeat in this election? In the first two decades of the century, President-elect Joe Biden's choice for secretary of state [...]

Who Owns the Future?

By |2020-11-16T16:16:57-06:00November 13th, 2020|Categories: American Republic, Pat Buchanan, Politics|

 If Democrats can kill the filibuster and pack the Supreme Court, if they can add four new senators from Puerto Rico and D.C., and if they can pack the electorate by turning millions of migrants, legal and illegal, into U.S. citizens and regular voters, then you don't need to be a weatherman to know which [...]
