America’s Deficient Defense

Given Iran’s and North Korea’s advancement toward nuclear weapons, the threat of catastrophic attack against the United States is a legitimate concern. So is America’s military preparedness.

ObamaCare’s First Few Years

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—otherwise known as ObamaCare—is almost four years old. Despite the technical troubles, what every American should know about the law is that whatever its provisions, whatever the press propagandizes or reports, the individual has no control of, or choice in, health insurance or medicine. Not if you’re a doctor, patient […]

Why are America’s Top Generals Being Fired?

The nation’s top military generals are being fired by the Obama administration one by one, according to a recent Reuters report. It’s a disturbing trend for several reasons.

The Ethics of War with Syria

America is not the world’s police and it ought to be unnecessary to have to declare let alone debate that an attack by the U.S. on Syria would be an outrage. But the Obama administration, backed by every major Democrat and Republican and largely by the press, too, is on the verge of taking the […]

Ayn Rand in Chicago

One […]

Hillary Clinton’s Hissy Fit

From forcing Americans into the enslavement of the medical profession, which is being accomplished by the man who defeated her and conferred her current diplomatic status, to leading what may be the worst foreign policy in American history, with major progression toward nuclear weapons by our arch-enemies, Hillary Clinton, despite her facade of competence, is […]

US President Richard Nixon and Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai toast, February 25, 1972

The SEAL’s name is Nicolas D. Checque. He was 28 years old. He came from Monroeville, Pennsylvania. Nicolas reportedly […]

The bum, it turns out, was seen last Sunday on the Upper West Side. The new boots, valued at $100, were nowhere to be seen. The policeman, […]
