As Americans begin a two-year celebration of the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth, another anniversary approaches with far more significant and immediate implications.This fall will mark the 70th anniversary of British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's accord with Adolf Hitler at Munich, a bargain with the devil that sought to buy "peace for our time" but cost Czechoslovakia its freedom and led to World War II, which cost even more in freedom and blood.Some elements in ...

Federal courts in San Francisco and in Los Angeles just ordered the U.S. Navy to limit its use of sonar, the underwater technology essential for tracking enemy submarines and detecting the ocean floor. These rulings tie the Navy's hands and are the latest outrage committed by judicial supremacists. The lawsuits were brought by environmental groups on behalf of whales and other sea creatures, using the claim that their ears and brains might be damaged by ... [full story]

This just in: Ronald Reagan is dead and he's not coming back. Now, can conservatives please move on?Reagan always spoke about the future and its possibilities. Today's conservatives, however, can't seem to break with the past and the nostalgia for the Reagan years. Even in his letter to the American people in 1994 in which he revealed he suffered from Alzheimer's disease, Reagan wrote of his "eternal optimism" for the country's future. Too many modern ...

With the economy on that slippery slope to recession, U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson took yet another small, albeit helpful, step toward easing the U.S. foreclosure crisis - the second in just a few months. This time, he's reaching out to all delinquent mortgage holders, a sign that default troubles have expanded past the subprime market. Not only are first-mortgage defaults going up, 5.7 percent of home equity lines and 7.1 percent of auto loans ... [full story]

Voters in Florida recently flocked to the polls in record numbers to participate in a crucial primary. While the Supreme Court did not have to declare a winner this time around, the polling was by no means flawless. Voters reported problems such as uncertainty over their correct polling location and confusion over which party's primary they were allowed to participate in. Instances were also cited where poll workers misinformed voters about the Democratic primary that ... [full story]

Some years ago, alerted by shoppers' charges that breakfast foods were marketed in boxes deceptively exaggerating the amount of cereal they contained, a delegation from the House Commerce Committee looked in on a Baltimore food firm to see if the consumer complaints were well founded. They were. A manufacturer claiming to have developed an automobile bumper capable of resisting body damage at speeds above 25 mph was invited to demonstrate his product against a concrete ...

Dear fellow conservatives: I'm writing to you soon after Mitt Romney suspended his campaign and Sen. John McCain addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference, not to calm you down, but to put McCain's campaign and career in historical perspective. We all love history and understand that to ignore its lessons is to put our Republic in harm's way. As a student of 20th century history, I'm rereading Martin Gilbert's great biography of Winston Churchill. As ... [full story]

Ronald Reagan was dismissed by the intelligentsia as just an actor who read speeches written by others until Kiron K. Skinner discovered a box of Reagan's original radio scripts written in his own hand on ruled yellow paper from 1975 to 1979. Since he had no staff to research and write for him in those years, the scripts prove that Reagan was a one-man think tank, well versed in political philosophy and history, fully capable ...

Since 2001 when "the war on terror" began, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) reports $649.9 billion has been appropriated for Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan). In the budget President Bush just submitted to Congress, there is a request for an additional $108.1 billion for 2008 and $70 billion for 2009.The cost of these wars has been largely borne by the American taxpayer, while the benefits of success in Iraq and Afghanistan ...

In human relationships, there is the flirtation stage, followed by what my grandparents called "courting" and, if that works out, marriage. For those who are co-habiting, that was once the order of things, before disorderly social conduct took over.In presidential politics, the analogy also works. We have passed the flirtation stage with Barack Obama and now it is time for a serious background check before too many of us follow our hearts instead of our ... [full story]

Several months ago when the news broke about poisonous pet food and lead-laden toys from China, I asked my local pharmacy to give me a letter stating it is not selling me any prescription drugs imported from China. The reply was, "We don't buy any drugs from China." I said, "I know you don't, but I want you to check with your suppliers and verify that they don't buy from China." That request was met ...

Lyndon Johnson had been president less than three months when confronted with a touchy international problem. Not surprisingly, it involved a familiar nemesis, Cuba. Hardly a year had passed since the Kennedy administration bargained the release of more than 1,000 prisoners locked up by Fidel Castro after our abortive Bay of Pigs invasion. Once again, the prickly Castro seemed gleeful to be having a beef with Washington. It came about when the U.S. Coast Guard ... [full story]
