Soviet Union

Legacy lessons from “Man from U.N.C.L.E.” Robert Vaughn.

Lloyd Billingsley, RedsInGovernment.Con “The curiosity is not that there were undoubtedly many Reds that made government their vocation, but that the entire Communist Party was not on the federal payroll.” When did Red Scare witch-hunter Joseph McCarthy say that? Or perhaps it was that anti-Communist right-wing Republican Ronald Reagan? Wait, it was that McCarthyite snob William

Thomas Sowell: I am so old that I can remember when liberals were liberal…

Random thoughts on the passing scene: There seem to be fewer bumper stickers this year than in previous presidential election years. People may decide to vote for one of these candidates, but apparently they are not proud of their choice. It is astonishing that some people think that the answer to the problems of ObamaCare

Despite Slime Thrown by Media, Dems, GOP Traitors, Trump Can Still Win

Charles Hurt, LAS VEGAS — Donald Trump is still in this race, and he can still win it. Obviously, he has had a rough couple of weeks. Democrats and the Clinton campaign — by which I mean the media — have thrown more slime and dirt at the Republican presidential nominee than any other politician in

Ken Blackwell: Trumped Up

If you rely on press coverage of the presidential race you probably think everything is fine in America. No foreign threats. No domestic crises. No budget or crime problems. Certainly nothing important enough to warrant discussing where the candidates stand. Instead, we see stories telling us that Donald Trump apparently is crude like Bill Clinton.

Roger Stone: Podesta Attacking Me to Cover Up Russian Mafia Ties

Roger Stone, Podesta is at the heart of a criminal operation. The attack on me by Clinton campaign Chief John Podesta is an attempt to deflect attention from his criminal activities in the former Soviet Union. Podesta is at the heart of a Russian-government money laundering operation that  financially benefits Podesta personally and the Clintons

Trump and Putting America First

Michael Cutler, The real significance of Trump’s immigration speech and his meeting with President Peña Nieto. Donald Trump demonstrated true chutzpah in accepting an invitation from Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to meet with him. On August 31, 2022 Trump met Peña Nieto just hours before addressing an enthusiastic crowd of supporters in Arizona where he

Peter Thiel’s Republicans Depart from Reagan

Star Parker, The primetime airing of remarks of billionaire technology entrepreneur Peter Thiel at the Republican National Convention was no accident. Thiel was given a starring role at the convention to make some things clear. That although lip service may be paid in the party platform to traditional, biblical values and opposition to gay marriage,

Nations by Consent: What would voting be like in a totally privatized society?

Murray N. Rothbard | Libertarians tend to focus on two important units of analysis: the individual and the state. And yet, one of the most dramatic and significant events of our time has been the reemergence-with a bang-in the last five years of a third and much neglected aspect of the real world, the “nation.”

They call Trump a narcissist, but his enemies are worse

Roger L. Simon, Donald Trump is constantly being accused of narcissism, as well he might be. But it’s of the traditional sort. What really dominates campaign 2016 and is manipulating our votes is a far more pernicious variety known as moral narcissism. What is that, you might ask? Unlike that well-known narcissism of a Greek

Millennials Embrace Socialism, But Do They Know What It Is?

Jonah Goldberg, Socialism is having a moment. I’m not just referring to Bernie Sanders’ surprisingly strong showing in the Democratic primaries. Various polls show that millennials have a more favorable view of socialism than of capitalism. And millennials generally are the only age group that views socialism more favorably than unfavorably. Some conservatives aren’t surprised.

The next national security crisis: We must make plans now to defeat growing cyber threat

Working at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), I saw a multitude of attempts by America’s enemies undermine our national security.  From terrorism to spies, our nation is always a target of its enemies.  One of the newest and most dangerous threats to the country comes in the form of cyber threats, where a single

Bernie Sanders’ Army of Deadbeats Can Bring Conservatives Together Again

Kurt Schlichter, It seems impossible, but there may be some common ground between the people who support Donald Trump, the people who support Ted Cruz, and the person who supports John Kasich. And it’s all thanks to socialism’s cryptkeeper Bernie Sanders and his band of whiny deadbeats. Their obnoxious demands that we give them the
