For Normal Relations With Cuba, End U.S. Interventionism
Last week we saw an encouraging sign that the 50 year cold war between the U.S. and Cuba was finally coming to an end. President Obama announced on Wednesday that the U.S. and Cuba would restore full diplomatic relations and that embassies could be re-opened in each country by the end of the month.
Will Slippery Slope Follow Confederate Flag Battle?
Some conservatives have seen efforts to remove the Confederate battle flag from the statehouse in Columbia, South Carolina, and also from other public places around the South, as the beginning of a slippery slope in which roads and landmarks named after Confederate figures are changed, monuments are removed, and a significant part of American history is obscured from view.
Redistricting Not Worth the Verbal Footwork
"Words mean what they say," I wrote in my Washington Examiner column one week ago. But, as I added, not necessarily to a majority of justices of the Supreme Court. The targets of my column were the majority opinions in King v. Burwell and Texas Department of Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project.
Have you ever noticed that you never see signs that say "Tolerate Diversity?" The reason for that is simple. No one wants to be tolerated.
I Told You Things Are Getting Crazier

Evangelicals Should Return To Core Beliefs
In the matter of the "culture wars," evangelical Christians are asking, "what do we do now?" The question is being raised in the aftermath of the Supreme Court's decision striking down state laws reserving marriage for heterosexual couples.
Trump and the GOP Border War
Bernie Sanders is a socialist senator from VermoDnt and Donald Trump a celebrity capitalist and legendary entrepreneur and builder. What do they have in common? Both have tapped into what the bases of their respective parties believe is wrong with America.
Absurdities and Outrage Rippled Through the Culture
That was a strange week, with intersecting conversations between and among Americans trying to absorb mind-crashing events that fed high and lowbrow attitudes, populist and patrician criticisms, sophisticated and naive pronouncements. There were absurdities and abominations, a massacre and amazing grace. Politics was writ large, accompanied by the rumble of rhetoric shaped to fit the emotional tyranny of the moment rather than great truths of the past.
Greece's Failed Economics
In a desperate bid to save his political career, Greek Prime Minister Alexei Tsipras bet big on both the gullibility of the Greek electorate and the unreconstructed hate the Greek left has for capitalism.

How to Stop Some Feminist Whining
HBO's Last Week Tonight with John Oliver resurrected piles of news footage on the fact that women are harassed on the Internet.
My Own Speech Code
Now it is The Hon. Barack Obama who has run afoul of the Language Police after using the forbidden word in an interview the other day, even if only to warn against its use. "It's not just a matter of it not being polite to say n----- in public," the president opined. Naturally he drew fire from our instant censors, who demanded that he find a way around the unspeakable word if he couldn't drop it entirely.
Don't Give Obama More Power Over Schools
After spending most of June giving President Obama new authority to negotiate trade deals with low-wage countries in Asia, congressional Republicans are now poised to spend July giving Obama new authority over education in America's public schools.
Marse Robert and the Lynch Mob
From across my small office I winked at Marse Robert. He winked back -- so his 7-by-6-inch portrait seemed to suggest -- white-bearded, gray-uniformed, arms folded serenely and confidently.
Be On Guard
When leaders of City Church in San Francisco recently decided to offer membership to same-sex marriage partners, investment banker Liza Hing says a lot of people in the church were totally blindsided.
Border-ing on insanity
Another American, a young woman on the streets of San Francisco, is murdered by an illegal alien and politicians from both political parties collectively have blood on their hands. How so? Both Democrats and Republicans have failed to secure our borders and have allowed illegal aliens to enter the United States almost at will for decades, in both Republican and Democrat administrations.
Destroying Religious Freedom to Save It
Even before the U.S. Supreme Court announced the previously unknown constitutional right to impose same-sex marriage on all 50 states, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) was readying its next volley.
