Scott Walker's Delusion

When I heard the news about the nuclear deal with Iran, I decided to seek out the sage wisdom of Scott Walker. Because surely, with his vast national security experience - fighting unionized workers, lobbying for a Milwaukee Bucks arena, running a state that ranks 38th in the nation in job creation - he would know what's best for America on the world stage.

Senate Needs to Accept Historic Deal With Iran

You can lead a Senator to water, but you cannot make him think. Benjamin Netanyahu's bellicose bellyaching notwithstanding, getting Iran to give up its nuclear ambitions makes the world safer, is broadly popular with the American people, and is the crowning achievement of an American-led foreign policy in a messy, post-9/11 world. But if this good deal is to become a real deal, first Kerry and his boss must get it past the numbskulls they used to serve with in the United States Senate.

Greece Today, America Tomorrow

The drama over Greece's financial crisis continues to dominate the headlines. It appears a deal has been reached providing Greece with yet another bailout if the Greek government adopts new "austerity" measures. The deal will allow all sides to brag about how they came together to save the Greek economy and the European Monetary Union. However, this deal is merely a Band-Aid, not a permanent fix to Greece's problems. So another crisis is inevitable.

Is Congress Up to the Job?

Congress officially writes the laws in the country, but they increasingly pass broad, vague generalities that allow regulators, bureaucrats, and judges to make all of the important policy decisions, often decades after the Congress that enacted the original law has left office.

Apple's Politically Correct Censorship

This is what happens when people who lack common sense or even a sense of proportion try to stay current with the latest PC hysteria.

Trump’s Laughing at Us

Give Donald Trump this much: he knows how to play the media like a violin. If I had half his business brain I'd send him a bill for this column, because every time a serious journalist treats his campaign seriously it feeds his coffers.

For Normal Relations With Cuba, End U.S. Interventionism

Last week we saw an encouraging sign that the 50 year cold war between the U.S. and Cuba was finally coming to an end. President Obama announced on Wednesday that the U.S. and Cuba would restore full diplomatic relations and that embassies could be re-opened in each country by the end of the month.
