POLITICAL COMMENTARY

  • The Passing of the Pelosi Era by Patrick J. Buchanan

    In the first round of the special election for the House seat in Georgia's Sixth District, 30-year-old Jon Ossoff swept 48 percent. He more than doubled the vote of his closest GOP rival, Karen Handel.

  • The Outlook After the Special Elections By Michael Barone

    The victory of Republican Karen Handel in the special election in Georgia's 6th Congressional District on Tuesday has discouraged Democrats and encouraged Republicans. Democrat Jon Ossoff won 48.1 percent in the special election's first round April 18, and Democrats had high hopes that they could take this House seat from the Republicans.  

  • Democrats Want To Lose The 2020 Election By Ted Rall

    "I am not a member of any organized political party," Will Rogers said ages ago. "I am a Democrat."

    So frustration with America's officially licensed nominally liberal political party is not new. Even for them, though, I can't imagine that any party ever worked as hard to pull defeat from the jaws of victory as the Dems are doing now.

  • Working-Class Republicanism By Kyle Kondik

    A new book tells the story of a president who made his name as an entertainer and a Democrat before moving to the Republican Party and then launching a bid for the presidency. This candidate won his party’s presidential nomination despite objections from some party stalwarts that he was unelectable in the fall. He then captured the presidency in part because he was able to perform better than Republicans typically do in some traditionally white, working-class areas in key states.

  • The Double Murder of Otto Warmbier by Michelle Malkin

    We may never know what brutal torture and malign neglect American student Otto Warmbier suffered at the hands of North Korea's dictatorship before losing his life this week at the age of 22.

  • 'Stingy' Jeff Bezos By John Stossel

    Thursday, right before Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced he'd acquire Whole Foods for $13.7 billion, he tweeted a "request for ideas" for "philanthropy strategy." If you have suggestions re "helping people in the here and now... reply to this tweet."   

  • Bern Victims Pile Up in Democratic Party By Charles Hurt

    If the anti-Trump fever the media keeps telling us all about cannot break through in Georgia’s 6th District, then it truly is nothing but a phantom that exists nowhere but in the minds of media elites hysterically trying to will President Trump out of existence.

  • After the ISIS War, a US-Russia Collision? by Patrick J. Buchanan

    Sunday, a Navy F-18 Hornet shot down a Syrian air force jet, an act of war against a nation with which Congress has never declared or authorized a war.

  • Democrats' Obsession With Russian Election Hacking Makes Them Look Dumb By Ted Rall

    They got Al Capone for tax evasion -- only tax evasion. It wasn't very satisfying for his prosecutors. But they couldn't prove murder or racketeering. So they got him where they wanted him: behind bars. It wasn't elegant. But they got the job done. 

  • A Long History of Leftist Hatred by Patrick J. Buchanan

    James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, who aspired to end his life as a mass murderer of Republican Congressmen, was a Donald Trump hater and a Bernie Sanders backer.
