MoveOn: “We Bought” the Democratic Party

A standard “action alert” has provided a rare glimpse inside the mind of the Shadow Party. In a December 9th e-mail signed by “Eli Pariser, Justin Ruben, and the whole MoveOn PAC team,” the Soros front group stated: “In the last year, grassroots contributors like us gave more than $300 million to the Kerry campaign and the DNC, and proved that the Party doesn't need corporate cash to be … [Read more...]

Two Congressmen I’ll Miss

In the aftermath of the presidential election, two significant Congressional races have gone unnoticed. Last Tuesday, America lost two representatives who have served their districts and their nation honorably: Charlie Stenholm of Texas and Phil Crane of Illinois. Rep. Charlie Stenholm, D-TX, earned a reputation as one of his party's most responsible moderates. Representing the interests … [Read more...]

Four More Years

I never considered this one of my best essays -- much less so in retrospect -- but I was pleasantly surprised when the UK Guardian newspaper edited and printed a version of it the day after I wrote it. The EU versionran under the title, "Now We Can Sleep Easy." -- TRW. At the polls yesterday, the American people gave George W. Bush an unprecedented mandate to win the War on Terrorism. Even … [Read more...]

Euro-Socialists Say: Assassinate Bush

The Left’s campaign of hate and defamation against the American president has hit a new low: a major media organ of the international Left, edited by an associate of Bill Clinton, has called for President Bush’s assassination. On Saturday, columnist Charlie Brooker told the readers of the far-Left British newspaper Guardian: On November 2, the entire civilised world will be praying, praying … [Read more...]

The Axis of Evil Endorsement

“You shall judge of a man by his foes as well as by his friends.” – Joseph Conrad in the novel Lord Jim. Months after John Kerry boasted of having received secret endorsements from anonymous foreign leaders around the world, many of the gaps have been filled in. The leaders of the world have weighed in on the 2004 presidential election. Let’s run down the list of nations supporting each … [Read more...]

False Hope is on the Way

The Wall Street Journal has reported the new Democratic 527 organization “Win Back Respect” – which recently aired a series of commercials accusing the president of secretly plotting to bring back the draft – is set to air a campaign ad featuring the father-in-law of one of the 9/11 victims criticizing George W. Bush’s foreign policy. (Remember the outrage when George W. Bush featured a few … [Read more...]

Deflecting Draft Demagoguery

The House Republican leadership decisively quashed a shameful Democratic whisper campaign Tuesday night, voting en masse against a bill that would reinstate the draft. Hoping to put this rumor to rest, House Republicans shot down H.R. 163 by a vote of 402-2. A pair of “liberal” Democrats cast the two affirmative votes. For months, the fever swamps of the Left have claimed President Bush stood … [Read more...]

Where Pat Buchanan Went Wrong

I wrote several book reviews at FrontPage Magazine, including virtually every book Pat Buchanan wrote during my tenure there. In hindsight, these were hypercritical and, more damning for me, did not engage with the substance of his arguments. As I place this on my website nine years to the day I first wrote it, I can say this is perhaps the most defensible of my reviews of his work, which is … [Read more...]

Kofi Annan’s “Illegal” War on Democratic Iraq

With the credibility of the United Nations at an all time low, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan moved last week to further discredit the 21st century’s League of Nations. On Thursday, Annan told the BBC that the Coalition’s war in Iraq “was not in conformity with the UN charter from our point of view, [so] from the charter point of view, it was illegal.” Perhaps Annan hoped his overheated plea … [Read more...]
