The left's long war against Clarence Thomas

In its war for America, the left never rests, sometimes falters but rarely allows itself to fail. It works tirelessly to "fundamentally transform the nation" and smashes anyone and anything that gets in its way. Published April 13, 2016

The real secret of Bernie Sanders' success

Two weeks ago, President Obama took time out of his busy schedule of "fundamentally transforming the nation" to do the wave with the Reds at a baseball game in Cuba.

The FBI stalks Hillary while Bill Clinton trolls Obama

Do Bill and Hillary Clinton sense a breakdown in whatever deal they may have struck with President Obama to protect her presidential ambitions? Is whatever negotiation they may have been conducting over her email server problem and any inside information she may have on him now imploding? Published March 30, 2016

The left gets the band back together for 2016

In Donald Trump, the GOP finally has a street-fighter

No one becomes fully delusional overnight. It usually begins with a small, manageable delusion that then mushrooms into bigger ones, resulting in a chain-reaction escalation of self-deception. In the worst cases, it ends in institutionalization. Published March 2, 2016

The coming battle over cementing Obama's national 'transformation'

There are certain people so deeply entrenched in the national consciousness that their immortality is sort of assumed. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was one of those figures. He was a larger-than-life man of such towering intellect and commanding influence that it never really registered that he might, someday, pass from the scene. Published February 17, 2016

Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and the GOP revolt

New Hampshire has a way of dishing out political reversals of fortune, and this week proved the Granite State hasn't lost its touch. This time, however, it was the Republican establishment that incurred its wrath. The voters are in open revolt. Published February 10, 2016

The real reason voters are on a rampage

Happy new year. If you thought 2015 was an unpredictable political year, wait until you see what 2016 has in store. The political dynamic that has brought us to this point has been unprecedented, which means the coming months will continue to deliver wildly unforeseen outcomes. Published January 6, 2016

Illustration on Hillary Clinton's vanished home in the modern Democrat Party by Alexander Hunter/The Washington Times

Is it Hillary's Democratic Party -- or Obama's?

Nothing says Merry Christmas like another Democratic debate buried on the Saturday night before the holiday.
