The federal government owes $16.7 trillion to its creditors around the world, definitely including China. Each year, that number grows by $1 trillion, the amount President Obama has been borrowing to keep his bureaucracy expanding at a rapid pace.
A deep bow to our "friends" in the Middle East no longer satisfies Barack Obama's White House. His new ambassador-to-be to the United Nations has a better idea. Samantha Power thinks the president should take a deferential knee. (It worked for Al Jolson, paying tribute to Mammy.)
In his sweeping, intelligent and enormously ambitious book, British historian Brendan Simms argues that whoever controls Central Europe can dominate the world.
Every few years, at least from the time of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, there is a scandal involving abuse of power at the Internal Revenue Service.
The news that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has targeted Tea Party and conservative groups has come as a huge shock to Republicans. "How could this happen," Republican lawmakers have wailed. Democrats, however, are only upset that Tea Party groups fought back and that the IRS' actions were exposed.
Does the secretary of agriculture need unlimited power over farmers to protect them against themselves? The Supreme Court might finally settle this issue in an imminent decision on one of USDA's most bizarre regimes.
When the U.S. government fails to protect its citizens, we must determine why. Such failures can erode public faith in the government's abilities and diminish public trust in its leaders.
Republicans have been completely right in criticizing President Obama for his poor handling of the economy. That being said, it's completely wrong for the GOP to criticize him when he does something right.
According to the latest Rasmussen poll released on Sunday, only 33 percent of respondents favor President Obama's plans for Social Security contained in his recent budget proposal. The heart of Mr. Obama's Social Security outlook is not reform but tinkering with the Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) that, beginning in 2015, would use a different yardstick of inflation.
Saturday marked the 270th anniversary of the birth of Thomas Jefferson. The third president has been claimed by the Democratic Party as one of its own, with the Jefferson-Jackson dinners that are annual fundraising events, especially for prospective presidential candidates.
Analysts agree that the erosion of the Syrian regime's capabilities is accelerating, that it continues to retreat, making a rebel breakthrough and an Islamist victory increasingly likely. In response, I am changing my policy recommendation from neutrality to something that causes me, as a humanitarian and decades-long foe of the Assad dynasty, to pause before writing: Western governments should support the malign dictatorship of Bashar Assad.

The events unfolding in Cyprus are examples of deja vu happening all over again ("Bank of Cyprus depositors get costly 'haircut'; Bailout could shave off 60 percent," Web, Sunday).
One widespread notion about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—known as Obamacare—is that the law, which turns three years old on March 23, creates a radical health system.
Robert Gellately's incisive work could well be titled, "Stalin's Worst Blunder." It is the story of how his rejection of Marshall Plan aid in 1947, both for the Soviet Union and the Eastern European nations falling under its domination, precipitated the Cold War and eventually led to the economic collapse of the Soviet bloc.
"It gives emphatic notice to the men and women in the armed forces," said President Franklin D. Roosevelt in signing the bill, "that the American people do not intend to let them down."
When Franklin D. Roosevelt became president in 1933, his secretary of agriculture, Henry Wallace, and others urged him to appoint a temporary "farm dictator."
