I am currently reading Paul Johnson's "Modern Times," a history of the world from the 1920s to the 1990s. In one chapter, Johnson traces the brutality of the twin totalitarian regimes, Hitler's Nazi Germany and Stalin's Communist Soviet Union.
Senate Democrats are stalling on agreeing to a legislative budget, noting that the declining health of 98-year-old Sen. Strom Thurmond could result in giving them a majority in the Senate, and consequently, a much bigger share of the legislative funds. Republican critics call it a deathwatch.
Don't let the relative quiet in Washington, D.C., right now fool you. Listen carefully, and you'll hear the soldiers sharpening their broadswords and battle-axes while the generals map our final plans in preparation for the coming Great Tax Cut War of 2001.
As the Republic passes on into the refinement of Bush II, patriots everywhere are asking: Is there any good sense in the suggestion of Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., that the Boy ex-President could be impeached for his roguish departure from office?
Liberals have long realized that, if they can win the battle over what is taught in schools, they will win elections. While they claim to believe in free speech, they often have little tolerance for alternate points of view in the schools.
You know what "Clinton-hating'' is, of course, as defined by Paul Begala, David Kendall and their acolytes. It's criticism of the Clintons: Bill and Hillary. Going on and on about the ex-presidential couple isn't their problem, it's something to do with us.
Ex-presidents are celebrities. The lecture agent who booked Clinton with Morgan Stanley reacted defensively when Morgan Stanley's chairman broadcast his apology. The agent said that someone who had been present reported that the speech was one of the best he had ever heard.
Mass defections from a religious faith are rare in history. Rome abandoned its emperor-worship under Constantine. Sweden abandoned Christianity for the welfare state. Now another great defection is under way. Reporters, talking heads and fashionable folk are beginning to lose their faith in Clintonism.
Blessed is he who doesn't simply complain about the entertainment industry's negative influence, but goes the extra mile to counteract it, even if in so doing he faces the wrath of high-priced lawyers and a soft-porn-peddling hack.
The government lawyer who cleared David Souter for the Supreme Court in 1990 in the first Bush administration has been in line for judicial selection duties in the second Bush administration. The reaction to this news is to derail that appointment, an exercise exposing what Republicans fear most.
