What is the price of denying opportunity?
Last December, the United States became a net exporter of oil, breaking an almost continuous 75-year streak of dependence on foreign oil, and is now the world’s eighth largest oil exporter. This was not always the case. I remember serving at the DMZ in Korea, where we only had heat three hou…
Two upstarts in the 2020 presidential election – Andrew Yang and Marianne Williamson – are both polling well below the front of the pack. Yang is at 3%, according to Real Clear Politics’ polling average, and Williamson is at a meager 0.5%. Contrastingly, the three front-runners – Joe Biden, …
“We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constituti…
Mayor Is Generous With Taxpayers’ Money
With apologies to Stevie Wonder, for whom it was once an album title, nothing is “hotter than July.” July was the hottest month.
The campaign against Brett Kavanaugh hasn’t required the formation of any super PACs. It hasn’t required the hiring of any dumpster-diving private detectives (so far as we know). It hasn’t even really required any elected Democratic officials.
Ballad wrong to close emergency room

It’s exhausting being both a conservative and a critic of President Trump. When I aim my pen at the White House, many of my comrades on the right go nuts. And readers who love it when I go after Trump turn into a cage full of poo-flinging monkeys when I turn my attention to the Democrats.
What if Beto O’Rourke was right?
By definition, what 14 million viewers watched on TV last Thursday night was not a debate – not even close.
Last year, I wrote about the incredible number of choices in your supermarket’s dairy case. What was once a simple choice between “sweet” milk and buttermilk has exploded into more flavors than Donny Osmond has teeth.
It’s the really big question in Washington, which goes to show how pathetic things can get here: Did John Bolton resign, or was he fired? President Donald Trump and his now former national security adviser disagree about that, much as they disagreed about everything else. It was not exactly …
In the “fire and fury” phase of Donald Trump’s presidency, everyone worried that he’d impulsively start a war with North Korea.
The number of Americans without health insurance rose last year, the Census Bureau reported recently, and Democrats say this justifies more government control. Yet the reality is more complicated — in particular, note that having a Medicaid card is no guarantee of great medical care.
Roe ignores top reason for unions
This August, I had the honor of visiting Israel with a congressional delegation to renew and strengthen the unique friendship between our two countries, to learn more about their culture firsthand, and to advocate for greater economic cooperation in several areas of joint interest. Given the…
The departure of John Bolton as national security adviser on Tuesday — President Trump said he fired him, and Mr. Bolton maintained that he quit — was logical and overdue. A rigid ideologue, Mr. Bolton has a long record of championing military action against U.S. adversaries, which Mr. Trump…
Just over a year ago, the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings got under way. They dropped a bomb on American social psychology and created a tectonic divide. And, as a book published this week suggests, their controversies were the result of a politically motivated hit campaign.
PARIS – President Trump was right to cancel a “secret” meeting with leaders of the Taliban and the Afghan government following two bomb attacks by the terrorist group that killed 10 civilians, an American soldier and a Romanian service member in heavily fortified Kabul.
I ended a recent column observing that American taxpayers, not the government of Mexico or anyone else, were going to end up footing the bill for President Donald Trump’s border wall.
If you’re going to lie, make it a good one.
“Climate change is an existential crisis,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren declared last week, unveiling her plan to fight climate change in advance of CNN’s interminable townhall event on the topic with 10 Democratic presidential candidates.
“It makes my ears bleed!” “It makes me feel sick!” “It makes my hair stand on end!”
The late bank robber Willie “The Actor” Sutton is said to have been asked by a reporter why he robbed banks, to which he supposedly replied, “Because that’s where the money is.” In his autobiography, Sutton denied the quote, but it serves as a warning to those who fear Democrats will come af…
The fastest way to trend on Twitter, and not in a good way, is to say that the right to bear arms is a God-given right.
Earlier this week, America celebrated Labor Day, a holiday that honors our nation’s workforce – the hardest workers in the world. This year, American workers certainly have good reason to celebrate: our economy is the strongest it has ever been in my lifetime, with workers benefiting like ne…
Joe Biden has long been adept at talking with a foot in his mouth, so perhaps it’s no surprise lately he has overdosed on whoppers. Nevertheless, it has unnerved many Democrats to hear their 2020 front-runner oscillate so frequently between fact and fiction.
True story: I used to live a couple of blocks away from the Apostolic Nunciature of the Holy See to the United States, which is the official name of the Vatican’s diplomatic mission in D.C.
“No Democrat is going to win the nomination for president of the United States without African American support. Nor should they,” Kate Bedingfield, Joe Biden’s deputy campaign manager, told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell last week.
When children return to school, should they find religion on the syllabus? It may surprise some, but a significant majority of Americans — including public school teachers — say yes.
Tory Prime Minister Boris Johnson has, to his credit, seized the initiative in the battle over whether Britain will truly exit the EU, and on what terms.
One doesn’t have to be a cynic to be cynical about the Justice Department’s decision not to hold former FBI Director James Comey accountable for what an Inspector General report called his violation of FBI policies and his setting a “dangerous example” in order to “achieve a personally desir…
“America’s present need is not heroics but healing; not nostrums but normalcy...” — Warren G. Harding, 1920
I wrote about “fixing stupid” recently, hoping we might see some progress. Unfortunately, we have a long way to go.
