When it comes to the rhetoric of hate, the cursing of politicians, and the shouting down of speakers, the right is not innocent, but the left is infinitely more guilty… If President Trump’s supporters are truly “a basket of deplorables… racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic,” and “irredeemable,” as Hillary Clinton described them to an [...]

Does the West Have the Will to Survive the Immigrant Invasion?

By |2018-06-22T11:32:49-05:00June 21st, 2018|Categories: Immigration, Pat Buchanan, Western Civilization|

Does the preservation of Western nations and peoples require measures from which liberal societies today reflexively recoil?

President Trump may be on the wrong side politically and emotionally of this issue of separating migrant kids from their parents.

If the Trump-Kim camaraderie goes south and the crisis of 2017, when war seemed possible, returns, President Trump, as he concedes, will be charged with naivety for having placed his trust in such a tyrant...

Some observers ascribe racist and anti-business sentiments to proponents of a new nationalist political order, but such pejoratives distract from alternative and more plausible explanations for populism’s contemporary popularity… There is much to commend in David Mr. Brooks’ latest op-ed, “The Coming War on Business,” but his assessment goes significantly astray from appraising accurately [...]

This remorseless drive to blast the greatest names from America’s past off public buildings, and to tear down their statues and monuments, is an egalitarian extremism rooted in envy and hate… On Sept. 1, 1864, Union forces under Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, victorious at Jonesborough, burned Atlanta and began the March to the Sea [...]

With the New World Order and global democracy having been abandoned as America’s great goals, what is the new goal of U.S. foreign policy? What is the strategy to achieve it? Does anyone know?… For the World War II generation, there was clarity. The attack on Pearl Harbor, Dec 7, 1941, united the nation [...]

By |2017-08-04T14:43:55-05:00May 9th, 2017|Categories: Democracy, Donald Trump, Featured, Foreign Affairs, Pat Buchanan, Politics|

Democracy requires common ground on which all can stand, but that ground is sinking beneath our feet, and democracy may be going down the sinkhole with it… “You all start with the premise that democracy is some good. I don’t think it’s worth a darn. Churchill is right. The only thing to be said [...]
