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.

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.

Gay people in America are among the most self-righteous and intolerant people there are.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is a textbook case of someone with a serious inferiority complex.

Georgetown sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson has made a very profitable career out of peddling lies about race in America.

There is one news outlet whose op-eds are even more outrageously ridiculous than those in the NY Times. Russia Today is more the propaganda arm of the Kremlin than a bona fide news organization. In its so-called news coverage RT strives to put a blatantly pro-Kremlin, pro-Putin spin on every story, sometimes comically so.

Facts and logic are two things notable for their absence in the op-ed pages of the New York Times. The Times has to pander to its ultra-liberal readership, and facts and logic are just two things these people cant grasp, thats why theyre liberals. And the flip side of this is an appalling combination of dishonesty and unbearable smugness.

The op-ed editors of the New York Times love antebellum slavery. Its been a full century and a half since the abolition of slavery, but for the Times its as if the 13th Amendment was passed only last week.
