KUHNER: The United Socialist States of America

President Obama is close to completing his socialist revolution. Since coming to power last year, he has sought relentlessly to transform America. From his days as a student radical, Mr. Obama has been obsessed with smashing the traditional free-market system. Like most leftists, he thinks capitalism is the enemy. Published March 5, 2010

KUHNER: Conservatives' isolationist dalliance

Is Rep. Ron Paul the future of the conservative movement? If last week's annual meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is any barometer, the sad answer may be yes. Published February 26, 2010

KUHNER: Duplicity, delivered

The Obama administration is accusing Republicans of enabling Islamic terrorism. The White House has sent out John Brennan, President Obama's chief counterterrorism adviser, to defend its mishandling of the failed Christmas Day bomber. Published February 11, 2010

KUHNER: Obama's phony populism

In the wake of Scott Brown's stunning victory in Massachusetts and in an attempt to halt his declining poll numbers, President Obama is reinventing himself as a champion of the middle class. He seeks to be another Harry Truman: an economic populist who is willing to stand up to Wall Street and the big banks. His administration even has engaged 2008 campaign manager David Plouffe to revive some of the old Obama magic. Mr. Plouffe has advised Mr. Obama and the Democrats to "fight" for their ambitious domestic agenda: redouble efforts on passing health care reform, have the government "create jobs," implement cap-and-trade legislation and impose another expensive economic stimulus plan.

KUHNER: Conservatism on the march

A Middle American revolution is brewing. Republican Scott Brown's historic victory over Democrat Martha Coakley in Tuesday's special election for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts has sent shock waves across the political landscape. Published January 22, 2010

KUHNER: Sarah sells out

Sarah Palin's decision to sign a multiyear contract to be a regular "contributor" for the Fox News Channel is a betrayal of her supporters. The decision also sounds the death knell of her political career. Published January 15, 2010

A new conservative party?

The Democratic Party is crumbling. President Obama's socialist revolution is slowly shattering the fragile Democratic coalition and making the party increasingly unpopular with voters. Published January 8, 2010

A decade of decline

America is going the way of ancient Rome. The past decade will be remembered as the pivotal tipping point where the United States ceased to be a superpower. Like the Roman Empire in its later stages, America's imperial grandeur masked moral rot and economic decay. Published January 1, 2010

The failed president

Barack Obama is on his way to being the worst president in U.S. history. This has not dawned on him - yet. But it will soon. Published December 20, 2009

A convenient lie

Radical environmentalists are forging a new socialist post-democracy that is slowly undermining representative government. Published December 13, 2009

Capital to tie rainbow knot

Gay marriage is coming to the District. The D.C. Council voted 11-2 on Tuesday to make the city the sixth jurisdiction in the United States to legalize same-sex unions. Published December 6, 2009

Multiculturalism on trial

The United States Navy has betrayed its own. The names of the victims are Petty Officer Matthew McCabe, Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe and Petty Officer Julio Huertas. Published November 29, 2009

Obama retreat on war

The war on terror is over. The decision to prosecute the self-proclaimed mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, along with his al Qaeda cohorts, in federal court marks a political watershed. President Obama seeks to return America to a pre-Sept. 11, 2001, mind-set. Terrorism is to be treated - as in the 1990s - as a criminal law enforcement matter. Published November 22, 2009

Obama's quagmire

President Obama is in Asia - instead of at home making a key foreign-policy decision. He has said he will not clarify his strategy in Afghanistan until he returns Thursday, thereby further kicking the Afghan can down the road. This is an astonishing act of cowardice and dithering. Unless the president quickly turns around his political fortunes, his administration will be mired in failure. Published November 15, 2009

Rebirth of an old scourge

Communism is alive and well. The Berlin Wall - the symbol of a divided Europe during the Cold War - fell on Nov. 9, 1989. Celebrations will be held Monday to commemorate the 20th anniversary of that historic event. Published November 8, 2009

Whiner in chief

President Obama is degrading the Oval Office. In recent months, his administration has engaged in puerile, partisan attacks on his predecessor, former President George W. Bush. Nearly every problem in America - the economy, health care, financial regulatory reform, Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo - is being blamed on Mr. Bush. Published November 1, 2009

Obama's new world order

President Obama is on a path toward establishing a one-world government. This is the warning of Christopher Monckton, a former major policy adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Published October 25, 2009

Silencing Savage

Freedom of speech is under assault. Michael Savage, America's third-most popular radio talk show host, is being assaulted. Published October 11, 2009

The coming war with Iran

War with Iran is now inevitable. The only question is: Will it happen sooner or later? Tehran's recent missile tests and war games suggest that the apocalyptic mullahs have reached the same conclusion. Published October 4, 2009

End of America's moment

America is no longer a superpower. Led by President Obama, its retreat on the world stage has been sudden, swift and stunning. His administration is actively pursuing a foreign policy of detente and self-abnegation. Washington no longer wants - or believes it is possible - to remain the last, sole hyperpower.
