Thank God, Gore didn't win in 2000

According to Fox News' "Special Report with Brit Hume" there is more evidence that former presidential candidate Al Gore has completely lost his mind. According to "Special Report," Gore is quoted in the upcoming issue of Time magazine as saying: Our foreign policy, based on an openly proclaimed intention to dominate the world, is a […]

The French Forget

For more than five decades, the French people have found themselves protected from external threats because of the presence of American troops in Europe. Because of the U.S. presence, Western Europe has enjoyed peace and prosperity. Unfortunately, the French have forgotten what they've received. On the other hand, the people of Romania, recently freed from […]

A book report -- sort of

I finished reading Stephen Coonts' latest paperback novel America yesterday. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Coonts' work, the 1991 movie "Flight of the Intruder" was based on his novel. Where Tom Clancy has Jack Ryan, Coonts has Jake Grafton. The reason I enjoy many of today's techno-thrillers, as the genre is commonly […]

Political asylum in the U.S. of A

In Wednesday's, Claudia Rosett recounts the tale of Chinese dissident Zhang Shengli. Zhang (the Chinese have their surnames first) isn't famous -- or at least he wasn't until Ms. Rosett's piece -- but he's certainly someone who deserves a place in the United States. Zhang has a history. But 20 years ago he did […]

Visas revisited

I neglected to address the issue of refugees when I talked about my inclination to bar people from Arab nations from coming to the United States on student or tourist visas. I think that we should be increasing the number of people we allow into the United States as refugees from those countries. People genuinely […]

Am I a racist?

I would have to say no. But then again, I could be wrong. My good, old (we're both "old" now aren't we?) friend Tom Davis criticized my post suggesting that we prohibit the issuance of visas to "any male between the ages of 18-50 from any Arab nation during wartime." Tom said that my suggestion […]

Our "strategic partners" the Chinese

The Washington Times Bill Gertz reports today that the penalizing eight Chinese firms for exporting germ-weapons materials and missile technology to countries like Iran. The sales occurred between September 2000 and October 2001 and violated the Iran-Iraq Nonproliferation Act of 1992.

Our friends the Saudis

If you don't get ticked off at the State Department and the Saudi government after reading William McGurn's piece in today's Wall Street Journal then you've got no heart. If you want a glimpse at what all of American foreign policy would be like if we made our No. 1 priority getting along with every […]

Elite opinion

I'm beginning to think that my own paper's James Goldsborough may provide more fodder than Krugman ever has. In today's paper, Goldsborough tags President Bush as a new-isolationist for not blindly following the advice of elite opinion-makers on the other side of the pond. If the Bush administration had deliberately set out to drive America's […]

I'll take a look at dude's new book, but this tweet isn't promising. Watts is a self-aggrandizing extremist whose easily debunked smears have done a lot of damage to her own cause. Also, within pro-gun-control circles everyone knows she's toxic, & Busse surely knows this.

Ryan Busse@ryandbusse

It’s time for reasonable gun owners to cry bullshit on those who demonize good people like @shannonrwatts who are just fighting to make the world better. As Shannon says…it’s also time to buy this book.
