Lowry: The new missile gap

The Biden administration is hesitant to call our competition with China a new Cold War, even though Beijing has zero qualms about making the parallels with our decades-long struggle with the Soviet Union abundantly clear. We are once again discussing a "Sputnik moment," a nuclear arms race, ...

Reich: The three biggest and least accountable power centers in America

The news has been dominated by the Supreme Court, whose term began this month; the Federal Reserve, and whether it will start responding to inflation by raising interest rates; and Facebook, which a whistleblower claimed intentionally seeks to enrage and divide Americans in order to generate ad ...

Buchanan: Are the good times over for Joe?

"When sorrows come," said King Claudius, "they come not single spies but in battalions." As the king found out. So it seems with President Joe Biden, who must be asking himself the question Merle Haggard asked: "Are the good times really over for good?" Consider the critical issue with voters ...

Lowry: The U.S. supply chain makes no sense

If there is one universally recognized principle in American political life, it's that the president of the United States should want Christmas to come off without a hitch. Surely, this is one of the reasons Anthony Fauci rapidly backed off his comment in an interview the other day that it's ...

Harrop: So-called progressives vs. the Democratic party

Progressive Rep. Pramila Jayapal has been all over TV trying to look reasonable with her ingratiating smile and syrupy references to the left's interest in "negotiations." At issue is the Democrats' final number on its social spending bill. Sen. Bernie Sanders was playing the sleazy salesman, ...

Buchanan: Who is killing 10,000 Black Americans every year?

"Unfortunately, Jan. 6 was not an isolated event," warned FBI Director Christopher Wray last winter: "The problem of domestic terrorism has been metastasizing across the country for a long time now, and it's not going away anytime soon." Since he became director in 2017, said Wray, FBI ...

Lowry: The zero cost canard

If Democrats get their reconciliation bill, it won't be because they convinced the American public that its true cost is zero. As the political prospects of the bill have sagged, Democrats are trying to recalibrate by arguing a generational spending binge really won't cost anything at ...

Stossel: Smeared by Facebook ‘fact-checkers’

I just sued Facebook. I didn't want to sue. I hate lawsuits. I tried for a year to reach someone at Facebook to fix things, but Facebook wouldn't. Here's the problem: Facebook uses "independent fact-checkers" to try to reduce fake news on their site. That's a noble goal. Unfortunately, at ...

Harrop: Republicans don’t want to pay their own bills

This is not about what would happen were the United States to default on its debt. It's about what occurred in 2011 when one party just threatened to let that happen. A Democrat, Barack Obama, was president, and for crazy partisan reasons, the Republican leadership deemed it a smart move to ...

Franks: Democrats’ boogeymen – Uncle Tom and Trumpism

Many liberals, progressives, socialists, and far-left Democrats are disingenuous, but also serious-minded and focused. When pushed to defend their failed policies, they are quite clever. They can make “up” seem like “down” and “down” seem like “up”. It’s almost as though they ...
