Immigration from Russia has not received much attention compared to the much larger flow of immigrants from South of the Rio Grande, but that can tell us much about the dangers of liberal immigration policies and a poorly policed border.
Immigration has been part and parcel of American history and society from the origins of our country. But the nature of immigration has changed dramatically in recent years, and with it entirely new challenges and dangers that the United States has not confronted before.
It is a war that has been dragging on for more than a decade, and things are not going well for a government that had depended upon American troops for its survival.
Listening to Ta-Nehisi Coates While White is an embarrassingly mushy public mash note from New York Times columnist David Brooks to modern Americas newest race huckster.
Maybe Greek Prime Minister Alexei Tsipras deserves some sort of honorary Margaret Thatcher Free Market Economics Prize.
There is a dirty little secret is virtually taboo is discuss in America. Affirmative action has produced an entire generation of Ivy educated African-Americans and other minorities, many of whom have received an education of dubious value, despite attending elite institutions.
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.
The Supreme Court has just agreed to reconsider the constitutionality of racial preferences in university admissions (although the advocates of these preferences prefer the seemingly more uplifting term affirmative action.)
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his party Syriza have just screwed the pooch, and royally so.
Well, it finally happened, the U.S. Supreme Court in its Obergefell v Hodges decision has just ruled that gay people have a constitutional right to get married. Does this somehow signal the end of Western Civilization and the American Way? And should we follow the advice of some prominent conservatives and simply refuse to accept the power of the Supreme Court to decide this question?
There is already a rush to call Dylann Roofs murder of nine black churchgoers in Charleston an act of domestic terrorism. This is a deliberate political strategy, intended by its ultra-liberal authors to transform this terrible tragedy into an indictment of American conservatism.
To put it bluntly, Putin is a moron.
Liberals are prone to two particularly unattractive behaviors: hysteria and hypocrisy.
Ireland has just had a national referendum that passed a constitutional amendment to legalize gay marriage. Same sex couples can already get married in 36 states, and next month the Supreme Court is likely to recognize a right to gay marriage under the Constitution.
The U.S. was absolutely right to invade and conquer Iraq in 2003. It suddenly has become a stock question to ask candidates for the Republican Presidential nomination a seemingly simple question: would you have invaded Iraq in 2003, knowing then what we know now?
So as I was walking on my way through central Moscow to go watch Russias May 9 Victory Day parade, I was physically assaulted by one of Russias so very polite broken nosed young men. Right in the middle of the main tourist thoroughfare in Moscow, just outside the doors of Starbucks, he came up to me violently screaming that he hated Americans.
The Kremlin is going all out to turn the traditional May 9 Victory Day celebration into a public frenzy of nationalistic patriotism and public displays of loyalty to President Vladimir Putin.
Once again, Muslim religious fanatics are striking out against our values of freedom of speech and open expression.
It has been forty years since the fall of Saigon. We have all seen the photo of the last helicopter evacuating the last Americans from the U.S. embassy, just as the victorious soldiers of North Vietnam were completing their conquest of South Vietnam. The conventional wisdom, especially among liberals, it that America lost the Vietnam War because our cause was ultimately immoral.
The citizens of Baltimore are suffering from violent street riots, and the New York Times is exploiting Baltimores agony to publish a call for yet more violence and to promote its dishonest and pernicious leftist political agenda.
