    Progressives, who have always claimed to be the authoritative source of progressive attitudes on race, have actually become one of the centers of racist thinking in America over the last quarter century, a period of time in which postwar liberalism/progressivism itself was being reconfigured by the radical Sixties worldview. Progressive racism began in the last years of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life, when organizations such as the Black Panther Party and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) radicalized the issue of color in America by focusing on legitimate “black rage” and the “institutional racism” they claimed was embedded in the...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich is the Republican in the 2016 presidential field whom Democrats I know like the most. He evokes his Christian faith to explain his support for government spending. At the CNBC debate, he declared, "I care about poor people'' -- in a way that made you wonder if he thought he was the only R who could make that claim. Kasich even liked the CNBC debate. Leon Wolf, a blogger for the conservative web site RedState, seized on Kasich's remarks to declare him "far and away the candidate in this field who is just utterly clueless about...

    Marco Rubio’s rise in the Republican primary polls might not even last the proverbial “15 minutes.” Rubio is the personification of two major evils in the eyes of Republican primary voters. They see him as synonymous with amnesty and part of the Republican establishment that has betrayed their trust. He is the Republican establishment’s “Great Brown Hope,” a mantle that comes from the GOPe’s foolish and demonstrably false insistence that Republicans must pander to Hispanics with amnesty in order to win. This puts Rubio and the GOPe squarely on the wrong side of the issue. Rubio is a perfect example...

On the other side, children attend a public elementary school where 87 percent of the students are black or Hispanic and 84 percent receive some form of public assistance.

    In her essay For The New Intellectual, Ayn Rand warned that our society was fast approaching the precipice of moral, intellectual, and philosophical bankruptcy with only two paths left for Americans to follow: they can evade the reality of their situation and act on a fanatic, blind, range-of-the-moment expediency not daring to look ahead, wishing no one would name the truth, yet desperately hoping that something will save them somehow or they can identify the situation, check their premises, discover their hidden assets and start rebuilding. America, at present, is following the first course as our intellectual leadership...

    Pat Buchanan has for years been such a virulent opponent of Israel that he has frequently been accused of anti-Semitism, and this column condemning Benjamin Netanyahu for supposedly interfering in Americas internal affairs by opposing the Iran deal is not going to erase that impression. The paleocon Right hates Israel with such abiding passion that it is increasingly self-contradictory: for a small government advocate like Buchanan defending Barack Obama and tacitly supporting a deal that threatens not just Israel, but the U.S. as well, manifests a moral myopia of catastrophic immensity. But its no surprise. Ive noted before how the...

(Fox News) Fiorina supported portions of the Obama stimulus, particularly broadband subsidies. ....(Information Week) Fiorina called on more government intervention into the housing...

    Protesters who claimed affiliation with the Black Lives Matter movement stormed the stage during a rally for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in Seattle on Saturday, taking over the microphone and forcing Sanders to leave without ever speaking. Moments after Sanders took the stage at Westlake Park, two women and one man climbed the stage and confronted the Democratic presidential candidate, demanding a chance to speak. After several moments of confusion and confrontation, an event organizer took the microphone and said the protesters would be allowed to speak before Sanders.
