Favoring some claims of conscience over others

We face a crisis of conscience today — a crisis forced upon us by elites in Washington who would pick and choose who is allowed to follow their deeply held beliefs and who is to be punished by the government for doing so.

Swinging the tax ax

Ronald Reagan signed the historic Kemp-Roth tax cut into law on Aug. 21, 1981. Reagan’s tax cuts should be seen in the context of Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.

An authentic alternative to Hillary Clinton

The media fixation on the largest Republican field of presidential candidates in history misses the very real crisis Democrats are facing as their slam-dunk nominee’s campaign unravels before their eyes.

The hot potato in the Iraq oven

This past week, Jeb Bush drew fire from Democrats and even some Republicans for pinning the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) on the Obama administration’s withdrawal of American troops from Iraq in 2011.

The Iran deal means game over for U.S. business

If you need another reason to oppose the Iran nuclear deal, the Obama administration has provided it in the fine print. Why would the U.S. government go out of its way to put American business at an internationally competitive disadvantage?

The Hillary Horror Movie, a Sequel

- The Washington Times

You almost have to pity Hillary Clinton. She has seen this movie, and now she has to sit through it again. The players are different, but it's the same old plot: The lady arrives to cheers and high spirits, and eventually the lady vanishes.

The summer of our discontent

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders represent two sides of the same coin. Both men have tapped into a deep anger -- a discontent -- in the public mood. Little seems to be going right.

Chris Christie's backward remedy for Social Security

At the recent Republican debate, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie won his war of words with Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky over government surveillance.

EPA's toxic adventure

Imagine an agency charged with protecting the environment, aptly named the Environmental Protection Agency. Because, you see, we need to protect the environment, and we need a government cudgel with which to do it.

Christians must vote

It has been estimated that less than 20 percent of self-identifying Christians vote. I believe this is the reason self-serving politicians govern our country.

Japan had further plans for U.S.

As World War II began, the United States knew Japanese intellectuals included accomplished physicists such as Yoshio Nishina. They knew he was a staunch Imperial nationalist and capable leader; so capable two of his students later won Nobel prizes.

America returns to Cuba

Gulags and satrapies are required in the nether world where Marxist fantasy survives. How else to keep the peasants in line? Secretary of State John Kerry, looking for love in all the wrong places, took a handful of congressmen to Havana the other day to preside over the raising of the American flag at the reopening of the American embassy, closed in 1961 when Fidel Castro imposed the Marxist yoke upon the neck of the Cuban people. The three Marines who lowered the flag 53 years ago, old men now, were called back to run up Old Glory once more. Mr. Kerry celebrated the occasion as another achievement of Barack Obama's presidency.

Lessons from an apology

Apologies are never easy, and apologizing in the name of a nation is hardest of all. Barack Obama still suffers, and no doubt always will, the approbation of many of his countrymen for his apology in Egypt early in his presidency, for what is still not clear, to the Islamic countries of the Middle East. A succession of Japanese prime ministers have put their hand to apologies for World War II. So how would Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's formal speech on the 70th anniversary of the end of The Great Pacific War, as many Asians call World War II, differ from the others?
