This is a hard one to write. After more or less 15 years of continuous newspaper syndication, this column you are reading is the end of the line.
Such testimony was consistent with physical evidence establishing that Wilson had not fired at Brown's back as repeatedly and poisonously alleged.
I am giving special thanks this year for the hard work of patriots who toil without recompense to expose the many vectors of Islamic subversion currently eroding the already hollowed-out institutions of Western society.
There are several ways to see the National Cathedral's decision to host Islamic Friday prayers this week.
Almost every anti-establishment firebrand is the same. Elected to break the chokehold that Beltway elites have on the republic, they come to Washington with their constituents' concerns foremost.
In the summer of 2009, U.S. Marines pushed into Afghanistan's Helmand province to begin the new offensive that President Obama had ordered based on the model of the President Bush's Iraq strategy of nation-building and counter-insurgency (COIN).
I was near Washington, D.C. interviewing the visiting Geert Wilders, leader of the Netherlands' Party for Freedom, when the news flashed that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the Canadian convert to Islam who terrorized Ottawa on Wednesday, had previously had his passport lifted by the Canadian government as an officially designated "high-risk traveler."
Do you get the feeling the United States government is trying to get us all killed?

Common sense and love of country dictate that air travel to the United States from the West African Ebola hot-zone nations of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone be suspended until the highly contagious, highly lethal Ebola outbreak is over.
For logic-minded Americans still genuinely puzzled as to how it could be that our presidents and secretaries of state and generals and pundits keep hammering home the big lie that Islam has nothing to do with jihad, that the religion of conquest is a "religion of peace," I have a special warning.

It's 9/11 the 13th and these United States have never been closer to losing the last vestiges of their foundational identity.

One thing an old Ivy League revolutionary can't stand is people noticing that he represents the Establishment. That he embodies the System to a point where he can make it stop and make it go. He will go to great lengths to convince himself, if not others, this is not so.
?There is something deeply shameful about the official American response to this week’s unprecedented gunning down of a U.S. Army two-star general by an Afghan army soldier.
There’s something darkly coincidental in the fact that the latest weapon to be deployed against the survival instinct of both Israel and the United States is an alleged “heartlessness” when it comes to children.
Dear Members of Congress: Here's an assignment for you: Watch the 1939 classic "The Wizard of Oz" and pay particular attention to the part in which Dorothy realizes that in her ruby red slippers, she had the magic power she needed all along.
There is one thing we can predict about the tens of thousands of "minor aliens" crashing our southern border. If permitted to stay in this country and gain citizenship, at least 8 in 10 of them will grow up to be Big Government Democrats.
