    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Tim Graham. For its second season, the creators of the FX series "The Americans" have chosen a new source for insight into the Cold War during the Reagan years -- one Lt. Col. Oliver North. It's a dramatic reversal from the first season, and it has infuriated some hard leftists. The show began with the shocking promise from creator Joel Weisberg that the series' heroes would be KGB agents: "We're making them the sympathetic characters. I'd go so far as to say they're the heroes." It quickly became apparent that these characters could...

    Perhaps no other IRS official is more intimately associated with the tax agency's growing scandal than Lois Lerner, director of the IRS’s Exempt Organizations Division. Since admitting the IRS harassed hundreds of conservative and Tea Party groups for over two years, Lerner has been criticized for a number of untruths—including the revelation that she apparently lied about planting a question at an American Bar Association conference where she first publicly acknowledged IRS misconduct.

    Decorated military veteran and best-selling author Oliver North tells Newsmax that a military strike against Iran’s nuclear capabilities could be the “only option” this year. North, who just returned from a trip to the Middle East, also says the conflict in Syria looms as a strategic disaster for the United States and its allies, warns that the appointment of Chuck Hagel as secretary of Defense would be a “formula for disaster,” and cautions that cutting defense spending will make the nation more vulnerable to “serious adversaries.” … Turning to Egypt, North tells Newsmax: “[Mohammed] Morsi is not an ally of...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- During the 2004 presidential campaign, the Democrats' standard bearer, John "Study or Get Stuck in Iraq" Kerry, was fond of claiming that if President Bush got re-elected, he would reinstate the draft. Though no Republican has advocated such a measure, the draft idea has created a lot of hot air on television and talk-radio outlets, which is what its proponents want in order to further depress support for the war in Iraq. The champion of conscription is a legitimate Korean War hero -- Rep. Charlie Rangel, the dean of the New York congressional delegation, who was decorated...

According to the Apostle (John 16:5), Christ urged his followers to ask that question shortly before the tumult of his arrest, trial, execution and resurrection. In the aftermath of this turbulent week, it's a relevant line of inquiry for President Bush and the new leaders in Congress. Notwithstanding all the pre-vote hype, post-election polls show that it wasn't just a wave of anti-war sentiment that swept Democrats into power. Three out of four American voters apparently voted for Democrats because of corruption and scandal in Washington. Fewer than half...

        In my line of work -- documenting the fortitude and perseverance of American soldiers, sailors, airmen, Guardsmen and Marines for FOX News -- we often interrupt a story to inject a relevant earlier chronological event through the use of device called a "flashback." Such historical references often provide a context for later events. The 2006 political "campaign season" has been a long "flashback" -- to the 1970s.     During the so-called "Vietnam Era" it was commonplace for critics of the long war in Southeast Asia to denigrate those serving in the Armed Forces.

Churchill Winston delivered that line in the House of Commons on May 13 1940, in his first address as Prime Minister.

    WASHINGTON -- Pity the poor Democrats. Five years of George W. Bush in office have driven them to distraction. Their most audible advocates have developed "Mad Mule Malady." The symptoms are identical to "Foot-in-Mouth Disease," and those running for office under the Democrat Party banner this year are likely to find their colleagues' increasingly vicious verbal gaffes to be both memorable and damaging. The onset of their illness could not be more instructive. As leading Democrats are attacking Republicans, al Qaeda is planning to attack America.

Of course, I'm pleased and honored to be able to spend time with some of the finest young Americans our country has produced. Relating the stories of brave soldiers and Marines as they protect innocent Iraqis who will go to the polls for their third election in a year is a job a I look forward to performing. These young men and women have worked tirelessly to remove a brutal dictator from power -- a...

    Of the many things for which we should be thankful this holiday season, we should be most grateful for young Americans who have been willing to serve in our Armed Forces. Since our War of Independence, ours has been the only nation on Earth consistently willing to send its youth into harm's way -- not for gold or resources or colonial conquest -- but to support an idea: individual liberty. Sad to say, the courage and determination of our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Guardsmen and Marines is no longer matched with similar resolve by many of our political leaders. Though President...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Without warning last Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D.-Nev., invoked a little-used provision of Article I, Section 5 of our Constitution to force "the world's greatest deliberative body" into an unusual closed session. Though Mr. Reid and his colleagues say their goal is to force disclosure of the "misinformation and disinformation" presented by President Bush and his administration during the lead-up to war in Iraq, their real motive seems to be nothing less than bringing down the commander-in-chief in the midst of a war. And unfortunately, the Republican leadership, caught flatfooted like deer in your headlights,...

    Freeh At Last By Oliver North October 14, 2005 President George W. Bush has more than three years to go before his second term in office is finished, yet these past few months have been instrumental in shaping the legacy by which he is likely to be remembered by historians. This week in Iraq, citizens will vote on a national referendum to approve a constitution and bring the Iraqi people another step closer to self governance. The stakes are high. As an intercepted al Qaeda communique revealed, it is the goal of radical Islamic jihadists to drive Americans out of...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- After the terrorist attacks of 2001, my colleague at Freedom Alliance, Tom Kilgannon and I concluded that wining the war on terror would require progress on two fronts: on the battlefield and within the International Community -- meaning the United Nations. Since Tom has young children, we agreed that I would cover the military side of this campaign and he would follow the "progress" on the diplomatic front. It really wasn't a fair division of labor. I get to hang around with heroes in Iraq and Afghanistan and poor Kilgannon has been forced to consort with the...

    The Congress has questions about Katrina. The Congress wants their questions answered -- now! To satisfy the insatiable curiosity of people like Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, congressional hearings are now being scheduled. Various administration officials engaged in Katrina rescue and recovery efforts in Louisiana and Mississippi therefore have to stop what they are doing in order to answer these very important questions from very important members of Congress. Requiring rescue/recovery officials to stop rescuing and recovering to respond to questions is akin to demanding that a fireman stop pouring water on a fire so that he can answer an...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congratulations, John, on your new assignment as the United States' permanent representative to the United Nations. Please know that these good wishes are offered in the same spirit that I would applaud Hercules on his willingness to cleanse the Augean stables. He, of course, had to divert the waters of the Peneius and Alpheus to accomplish his task. To flush the effluence from the corridors of the U.N., you may have to do the same with the Hudson and East Rivers. Please permit me to assist you in that task by throwing in my two cents --...

    In the midst of one of the greatest challenges we have ever faced, we in the Western World have developed a serious communications problem. In this era of hypersensitivity and political correctness, words no longer have meaning. The good are too often portrayed as evil; indefensibly wicked acts are made less so by how they are described. Words like "hero" and "hatred" have lost definition. In a struggle for survival, the inability to discern attackers from allies, friends from foes and heroes from cowards can be catastrophic. Scotland Yard and MI5 -- the British domestic intelligence service -- concluded three...
