Mr. President: Is There A Bear?
July 18, 2014: It may have been the most effective political ad in history. President Reagan's 1984 "Prepared for Peace" ad was a 30-second spot featuring a bear. It put the essential question to the American voters and let them decide who was right. They decided that Reagan was right: It was best to be as strong as the bear, if there is a bear. President Reagan carried forty-nine states that year.
The right leader
June 17, 2014: Tuesday's unexpected and historic defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor stunned the political class and official Washington. A little-known and underfunded challenger prevailed against one of the most powerful men in Washington and one of the most visible Republican leaders in the country.
No U.S. dollars to PLO 'Terroristan'
June 06, 2014: For too long, the U.S. taxpayers have been forced to shell out money to the PLO -- the Palestinian Liberation Organization. For nearly a quarter of a century, the PLO -- repackaged as the Palestinian Authority -- has been raking in billions of dollars from credulous officials in the U.S. State Department and the European Union.

Danger at the Summit
May 27, 2014: First Lady Michelle Obama recently appeared on the Web holding a sign:##BringBackOurGirls. She was presumably acting with the full approval of her husband. President Barack Obama is the Commander-in-Chief of what was once known as a Superpower. In London, Prime Minister David Cameron similarly resorted to the Internet to express the concern of a nation once known as Great Britain. These fatuous responses to the kidnapping of nearly three hundred Christian girls by the Islamist Boko Haram in Nigeria have met with widespread derision, as they should.
Putin Out and Proud
May 18, 2014: The Wall Street Journal recently showed Vladimir Putin in Crimea. There was the saturnine Slav in an unusually ebullient mood. He was standing in front of a banner ostensibly celebrating the victory of the USSR in what Russians still call "The Great Patriotic War" against Hitler in 1945.
Getting Missile Defense Right
May 13, 2014: With Iran on the verge of obtaining nuclear weapons and Russia wanting to re-assert itself as a world power through the Ukrainian crisis, a strong military presence in the world is more important for America than ever. A critical way the military does this is by remaining a global leader in ballistic missile technology.
