Terence P. Jeffrey: Obama Claims Power To Make Illegal Immigrants Eligible For Social Security And Disability

Democrat vote-buying 101.  Does the president of the United States have the power to unilaterally tell millions of individuals who are violating federal law that he will not enforce that law against them now, that they may continue to violate that law in the future and that he will take action that makes them eligible for federal benefit programs for which  ...

Victor Davis Hanson: The Art Of National Suicide

America can still avoid sharing Europe’s fate.     But only if we take action. Because of what Europe has become, it now has few viable choices in dealing with radical Islamic terrorism. Its dilemma is a warning to Americans that we should turn away from a similar path of national suicide. After suffering serial terrorist attacks from foreign      ... MORE

I pointed out that America's leftists and progressives believe that the U.S. should become more like Europe. I wonder whether they also want to import European policies that created barbaric extremism among its Muslim population. France's      ... MORE

by Ed Straker.  Deploying the honor system with terrorists. Both Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio have called for the US to accept more Syrian refugees, as long as they are properly "vetted", of course.

Thomas Sowell: Stop The Bleeding

Europe is learning a painful lesson.      There was a painful irony when France's immediate response to the terrorist attacks in Paris was to close the borders.

Ira Stoll: A Warning About The Politics Of Crowds

The tactics of Trump, Sanders and the Pope.    The voice I find myself missing this political season is that of Fouad Ajami, who died last year. Not so much for Ajami’s insights into the area that was his academic speciality, the Middle East, though one certainly wishes for his thoughts on the Islamic State, the humanitarian disaster that is Syria, and   ...
