The Democratic Party establishment is right to worry. While Bernie Sanders' chances of becoming president are slim, the odds he wins the nomination and reshapes the party are good and have been improving weekly. Sen. Bernie Sanders may be on the cusp of both capturing the Democratic nomination and transforming his party as dramatically as [...]

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has just given us notice he will be terminating the Visiting Forces Agreement that governs U.S. military personnel in the islands. His notification starts the clock running on a six-month deadline. If no new agreement is negotiated, the VFA is dissolved. What triggered the decision? Duterte was offended that one of [...]

Will Bernie Burn Down the Democratic Establishment?

By |2020-02-14T07:28:17-06:00February 14th, 2020|Categories: Pat Buchanan, Politics, Presidency|

From the day he entered the race, Joe Biden was the great hope of the Democratic establishment to spare them from the horrifying prospect of a 2020 race between The Donald and Bernie Sanders. Today, that same establishment wants Joe out of the race. Why has Biden suddenly become an albatross? His feeble debate performances [...]

Last White Men Standing?

By the end of February, the race for the Democratic nomination may have come down to a choice of one of three white men. Two are well into their 70s, and either would be the oldest president ever inaugurated. The third is a 38-year-old gay in a same-sex marriage who would be our youngest president [...]

Can Bernie Win?

By |2020-01-31T14:00:28-06:00January 31st, 2020|Categories: Pat Buchanan, Politics, Presidency|

Can a septuagenarian socialist who just survived a heart attack and would be 80 years old in his first year in office be elected president of the United States? It's hard to believe but not impossible. As of today, Bernie Sanders looks like one of the better, if not best, bets for the nomination. Polls [...]

Impeachment: The Left’s Ultimate Weapon

By |2020-01-28T00:57:22-06:00January 28th, 2020|Categories: Constitution, Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, Presidency|

Even before the 2016 election, Democrats, collaborating with a like-minded media, were using the instruments of power they possess, to first prevent and then to overturn the election results of 2016. Russiagate, the James Comey FBI investigation, the Mueller probe — aborting a Trump presidency has always been the goal. In 1868, President Andrew Johnson [...]

How Long Can America Hold Together?

By |2020-01-22T16:08:58-06:00January 21st, 2020|Categories: Civil Society, Pat Buchanan|

Americans seem to disagree with each other more and to dislike each other more than they have in the lifetime of most of us. One wonders: How does it all stay together? And for how long? On the holiday set aside in 2020 to honor Martin Luther King, the premier advocate of nonviolent Gandhian civil [...]

By |2020-01-21T10:26:51-06:00January 19th, 2020|Categories: Civilization, Culture, Family, Modernity, Pat Buchanan, Western Civilization|

For many First World countries, the most compelling concerns do not involve climate change but population decline. The tribes of Europe, the peoples of almost every country of the Old Continent, are visibly aging, shrinking, and dying. If birth rates do not rise we are talking here about what historians, a century hence, will [...]

A Malicious Impeachment

By |2020-01-21T11:40:12-06:00January 16th, 2020|Categories: Constitution, Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, Politics|

About the impeachment of President Donald Trump she engineered with her Democratic majority, Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday: "It's not personal. It's not political. It's not partisan. It's patriotic." Seriously, Madam Speaker? Not political? Not partisan? Why then were all eight House members chosen as managers to prosecute the case against Trump, who ceremoniously escorted the [...]

Two months ago, crowds were in the streets of Iran cursing that regime for squandering the nation’s resources on imperial adventures in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen. Things were going America’s way. Now it is the Americans who are the targets of protests. Fifteen years after the U.S. invaded Iraq to turn Saddam Hussein’s dictatorship into a [...]

Beginning his joint press conference with Vladimir Putin, President Donald Trump declared that U.S. relations with Russia have “never been worse.” He then added pointedly, that just changed “about four hours ago.” It certainly did.
