Once again Russian strongman Vladimir Putin has blood on his hands, and once again he is smugly confident that he will get away with murder.
Writing this weekly round-up of the muddled and nonsensical bull in the New York Times op-ed pages is usually a pleasure. Its not all that hard to take a typical NYT column and easily identify the gapingly obvious liberal biases, factual errors, and logical mistakes.
The third Monday of February is Presidents Day, when we celebrate the birthday of George Washington, at least when were not pre-occupied with Presidents Days sales.
Today it couldnt be more clear that Russian President Vladimir Putin cannot be relied upon to keep his word, if there ever was any doubt.
Charles Blow reliably and ceaselessly provides a regular dose of outraged indignation. Paul Krugman unfailingly harps on how dumb Republicans are and how were all going to starve to death without more deficit spending to prime the pump.
Vladimir Putin is a gangster at the head of a criminal state. Unfortunately, Russia is a nuclear armed criminal state run by ignorant and dishonest thugs. We simply cannot rely on the Kremlin to deal in good faith or perhaps even act rationally.
Charles Blow is the gift that keeps on giving.
America, its time you get used to some new officially mandated personal pronouns in addition to quaint old he and she.
This week Charles Blow single-handedly serves up enough cheap laughs for this weeks review of vapid and ridiculous nonsense from the op-ed pages of the New York Times.
I have been a loyal reader of the New York Times for decades, and I rely upon The Grey Lady for the news.
America has the best cops in the world. Without question, the men and women who serve in blue uniform in the United States are the braver and more professional than the police forces of any other country.
The problem isnt Islam. Its Muslims. Thats a critical distinction we need to make if we want to understand the motivations behind Wednesdays massacre in Paris, and the civilizational conflict before us.
Its a question of civilization versus barbarism. Earlier today armed gunmen burst into the Paris offices of a small satire magazine and murdered twelve people in cold blood.
In his annual year end press conference, Russian President Vladimir Putin showed beyond the shadow of a doubt that he is in fact mentally unhinged.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has been riding high for most of 2014.
Vladimir Putin is hoping to get away with murder. Last week a civilian airliner was shot down over eastern Ukraine by a sophisticated anti-aircraft missile system, and 298 innocent people died as a result. Simple logic and all the early evidence to point to Russia as the guilty party, but Putin smugly believes that he will get off scot-free. And he has good reasons to think so.
Today is May 9, which is the date Russia celebrates the defeat of Nazi Germany (in Europe and America, May 8 is considered the date that marks the end of the war, but because of the time difference, German commanders signed the surrender documents on May 9 Moscow time).
In a rare triumph for common sense in Washington, it is being reported that the Justice Department intends to allow “tactical leeway” to the FBI to use ethnic profiling. This is welcome news for the security of our country. Profiling and stereotyping are a fact of life.
In his fourteen years in power, Vladimir Putin has now made three successful land grabs. In 2008 he de facto annexed South Ossetia and Abkhazia, two miniscule and impoverished provinces in the former Soviet republic of Georgia.
On Thursday, the 193-member General Assembly of the United Nations voted 100 to 11 to denounce the Crimean referendum - a balloting that paved the way for the absorption of the peninsula into Russia - as illegal. Another 58 countries abstained, while the remaining 24 did not vote.
