  • Passed By for Decades, Clarence Thomas Is a New Symbol of the Trump Era

    He was the subject of a recent book, “The Enigma of Clarence Thomas,” which led to a flurry of articles and book reviews on his life and legal thought. A new biographical documentary, made by the conservative filmmaker Michael Pack, airs Monday on PBS. For the project, the justice spoke to filmmakers for 30 hours — an astounding feat for a jurist who once went 10 years without asking a question from the bench. “He would have never said, ‘Gee whiz, I should be an icon,’” said Helgi Walker, a lawyer at the firm Gibson Dunn who clerked for Justice...

  • The Swedish Submarine that Sank a US Aircraft Carrier

    Brand-new, nuclear powered, capable of carrying twice as many aircraft as most competing foreign carriers, and protected by an entire task force... the $6.2 billion USS Ronald Reagan seemed invincible leading up to an international war game exercise in 2005. It was a stunning blow then, and a complete shock, when - against all odds - a super stealth submarine from Sweden snuck past the USS Ronald Regan’s defenses and scored enough mock torpedo hits to sink it during *multiple* attack runs. The Americans never saw it coming… and never saw it leave… https://youtu.be/L26RZdmQ2nE

    The stunning repudiation of Sen. Richard Lugar's, R-Ind., bid for a seventh term has sent shock waves through Washington's internationalist lobby. A former Rhodes Scholar, Lugar has spent his career promoting a globalist agenda, since he succeeded the late Jesse Helms as the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. One day after Indiana Republicans handed Lugar his walking papers, an outfit called the Atlantic Council held a forum to promote the discredited Law of the Sea Treaty. As former Republican U.S. Sens. Chuck Hagel and John Warner beamed their approval, Obama's Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta declared that...

    The muted reaction of leading Democratic politicians to the elimination of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani reinforces my sense of what divides our country and differentiates the two parties. One part of America still believes that there is good and evil, and one part doesn't. The American left, whose political home is the Democratic Party, lives in a world where good and evil don't exist. Everything is about politics including redemption itself. Only someone who does not believe there is good and evil experiences no joy when evil is defeated. The destruction of Soleimani, whose life's work was carrying out...

    Wildavsky, a sophisticated and pathbreaking political scientist, thought the matter quite simple: The contempt hurled at President Reagan over the principles nearly agreed to at Reykjavik reveal the intellectual bankruptcy of his critics. . . One cannot but feel that much of the violent reaction to Reykjavik had no more substantial basis than the extreme pique felt by arms control intellectuals at not being consulted in advance. That was Ronald Reagan’s real sin in Iceland. For what, after all, was wrong with Reykjavik except that it lacked the imprimatur of the foreign policy establishment? I tend to think the “deep...

    What a great holiday season it is. Know why? Congress is on vacation, which means all the rest of us get a break from politics. We're in the middle of what amounts to a national Christmas ceasefire in our never-ending, 24/7 political civil war. Political bombshells, childish name-calling, stupid tweet battles, partisan posturing, congressional hearings, Democrat primary debates, FBI leaks, trade wars, Brexit, Jeffrey Epstein's "suicide" ... all are almost totally absent from the news media. The best present I received this year was that no one talked politics at my house all Christmas day. The "Trump" word was never...

    Bigotry. Fascism. A threat to women’s rights. Alliances with foreign dictators. A president as entertainer, trampling labor and the environment. It sounds like the contemporary complaints against President Trump. Actually, it’s a 1984 newspaper advertisement from “Scholars Against the Escalating Danger of the Far Right.” “With Ronald Reagan as its performing star in the White House, the Far Right is attempting to take over the Republican Party,” says the ad, published in the November 2, 1984, New York Times and signed by, among others, Carl Sagan, Linus Pauling, Corliss Lamont, Stephen Jay Gould, John Hope Franklin, Gloria Steinem, and Frances...

    The price of greatness is responsibility. – Sir Winston ChurchillIt is hard to adequately acknowledge the sacrifices made by the men and women who responded to that call of responsibility, especially in times of war, but today we honor them. The President will do so by attending and speaking at the beginning of New York’s Veterans Day parade. The 100 year old New York tradition which began with a huge tickertape parade honoring our troops returning from World War I which had technically ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.The “war to...

    It’s long overdue. A statue of former President Ronald Reagan was unveiled and dedicated on Friday at the U.S. embassy in Berlin, Germany. The seven-foot statue overlooks the site of the Berlin Wall. In an unforgettable speech for those old enough to remember it, on June 12, 1987, President Reagan stood at the Brandenburg Gate and delivered this demand of Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev: “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” He was calling for Gorbachev to open the Berlin Wall which had separated West and East Berline since 1961. Reagan’s speechwriter, and current Hoover Institution fellow Peter Robinson noted...

    On this thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, a new statue of President Reagan has been unveiled across from the Brandenburg Gate, where in 1987 he challenged Gorbachev to "tear down this wall". As I discussed on the radio yesterday, all the smart people thought the line was idiotic. Yet two years later the wall was indeed torn down. With that in mind, I thought for our movie date this week we'd spend some time with Ronald Reagan on the silver screen. If I recall correctly the Left's dismissal of Reagan back in the pre-wall-toppling Eighties, it's...

    Our country is being torn asunder by a rogue establishmentarian government bureaucracy locked arm-in-arm with the Democratic Party. They are trying to overturn the results of the 2016 election of a disruptor president who won by promising to destroy their corruption. To worsen matters, a shocking embrace of socialism by much of the American populace, especially the youth, is taking place. These are dark times. A new movie has thankfully arrived on the scene to give us renewed hope. It will appear on Wednesday, November 6, in theaters nationwide for one night only.  The movie, produced by Rob Orlando, is...

    Wednesday brought the distrubing and sad news that wildfires were threatening the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Southern California. Well, it was sad news to most people. But that didn’t stop a few prominent liberals in and out of the media from either gloating or blaming conservative inaction on global warming. Philadelphia Inquirer columnist and occasional CNN guest Will Bunch used the dangerous fire as an opportunity to hype his anti-Reagan book and to tout this as a what-goes-around-comes-around type situation:

    PJ Media ^ | February 4, 2014 - 10:06 am | Kim Zigfeld
    In November of 2013, Russian media reported that U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul would soon resign; McFaul emphatically denied he was going anywhere. Yet today, he announced his resignation. Izvestia and Gazeta.ru reported the news back in November. […] McFaul is the chief architect of Obama’s “reset” policy with Russia, a policy that diagnosed Vladimir Putin not as a dangerous foe of the U.S. but as a misunderstood statesman who had been alienated by Republican policies inspired by Ronald Reagan. In practice, “reset” was McFaul’s euphemism for appeasement. The results of this policy were completely predictable: sensing weakness, Putin...

    The man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan is interested in getting a job in the music industry, possibly in California, his lawyer said at a court hearing in Washington on Tuesday. John Hinckley Jr., 64, lives in Virginia and was not present at the hearing. A prosecutor said allowing Hinckley to relocate to California for a music industry job would give the government “great pause.” Hinckley spent decades living at a psychiatric hospital in Washington after being found not guilty by reason of insanity in the 1981 shooting that injured Reagan and three others. But health professionals have...
