No civilization has lasted long as King of the Hill when there was a death of faith, a degeneration of morals, contempt for traditional values, a collapse of culture, a paralysis of the will, a decline in its native born population, and foreign invasion that wasn’t resisted.
The quest for religious liberty animated our forefathers to abandon their homes, traverse vast oceans in flimsy boats, and endure innumerable hardships in a foreign land—all to worship God in accordance with the dictates of their conscience.
The stakes were very high, and many in Romney’s inner circle advised against the address.
Few politicians in America have as much scandal, sleaze, and controversy surrounding them as Hillary Clinton and perhaps none of them, with the exception of her husband, has been given a bigger free pass.
A symbiotic relationship is one in which both parties benefit. Some of these are stranger than others, and some even manage to benefit those outside the relationship.
Our efforts to end the illegal alien invasion occasionally need a good shot in the arm.
I just got off a conference call with the White House, and I’m very happy. I wanted the president to use his bully pulpit to tell the world – borrowers, lenders, investors and citizens – what the plan was. That's what President Bush did today.
Much of the media coverage of the Presidential campaign has focused upon two issues — the war in Iraq and health care. The latter has been particularly prominent in Democratic Presidential debates and upon the campaign trail.
Republicans keep longing for a reincarnation of Ronald Reagan to pop up and win the GOP presidential nomination, but thus far not one of the current candidates has shown that he has the vaguest notion of what made my father the great president he was.
With the candidates oiling up for the primaries, an opportunity is at hand for serious debate about universal service. It’s the notion that in some capacity everybody should serve the nation — each doing his share in give-back service, civilian or military.
Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani was in Washington on Tuesday to raise money and to see me. In a nondescript office building two blocks from the White House, Giuliani answered a wide range of questions on domestic and foreign policy.
It’s common, around this time of year, to hear people grumble about Christmas being “too commercial.” They have a point, of course. It’s easy to get so caught up in the buying frenzy that we forget why we celebrate Christmas in the first place.
As the year comes to a close so does the inter-Nicene argument between free-market economists about gold and inflation. Both are passing because of the same cause – the passage of too many months without the end of the world as we know it.
Once upon a time, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby went off on the road to Bali. Fifty-five years later, politicians are heading to Bali for sun, sand and socialism – and they want us to pay for it to the tune of trillions of dollars.
As this column goes to press, hundreds of presumably Muslim protestors in Sudan are shouting for the execution of a British school teacher. Her offense? Insulting Islam because her class of 7-year-olds named a teddy bear Muhammed.
My next statement is one-hundred percent correct. Not one person who saw my headline thought to himself or herself, "Jesus Christ… who is that?" Perhaps some of you thought I was swearing. Others, no doubt, are offended that I should use the name of Jesus in such a manner. In any case, the name rings a bell for everyone.
One says he is, but he shouldn’t be. Another says he is, but isn’t enough. Another says he’s always been, but wants to be more so. And, another says bluntly “Evangelicals are over-committed to the Bible.”
If you thought Hillary Clinton's government takeover plan for health care was bad, wait 'til you see what she has in store for the housing sector. As always with the Clintons, the market is the problem and Big Nanny is the solution.
Other than the fight against radical Islam, the efficacy of free trade may be the most important issue pending before the American people and our government.
Now that the cost of a college education has risen almost as dramatically as the level of genuine learning has fallen, colleges and universities are turning to consultants, marketers and "branding" experts to sell themselves with snappy mottos.
The most interesting point in the new National Intelligence Estimate, which reports that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program four years ago, is not about what Iran did or did not do in developing nuclear weapons. It is about how Iran makes decisions about such things.
Once again, though, I find myself offering a column in response to still more absurd – irresponsibly so – attacks on the FairTax.
We live in the age of group apologies. I would like to add one. The baby boomer generation needs to apologize to America, especially its young generation, for many sins.
The recent Republican presidential debate in Fort Lauderdale, Florida was held just weeks before the Iowa presidential caucus and was decidedly livelier than previous exchanges.
Pat Buchanan’s latest book, “Day of Reckoning: How Hubris, Ideology, and Greed Are Tearing America Apart,” paints a gloomy picture of America at home and abroad. I talked to Buchanan Thursday while he was on his book tour in the Washington, D.C., area.
The strike has led the programs of media darlings Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert to rely on reruns. Given that they have cable shows with mediocre ratings by prime-time standards, it’s peculiar that they would be mentioned in nearly every article about the writers’ strike.
When the Patent Reform Act of 2007 (S. 1145) soon reaches the Senate floor, Congress will be presented with a significant opportunity to affirm the goals the Framers envisioned for the patent system. Those goals -- to spur innovation by rewarding inventors and to disseminate pioneering knowledge to facilitate and further expand the marketplace of ideas -- have been thwarted in recent years by a system that has failed to keep pace with the rapid evolution of the economy and the nature of innovation. This landmark reform measure will restore the balance the Framers intended for the patent system.
This is not a good time to be Mitt Romney. After almost a year of having the Iowa and New Hampshire airwaves to himself, he is now facing a challenge on the right from Mike Huckabee and Fred Thompson and on the left from Rudy Giuliani.
Listening to liberal politicians attempt to speak about Biblical Christianity is something akin to quizzing porn stars about the finer points of acting. ...And if you're last name is Clinton you may qualify for both - but I digress.
