Part of the reason the GOP establishment loves perpetual war is that they don’t understand what victory is—a just peace.

The welfare state eats its seed corn. More welfare, higher costs & inflation, fewer babies. We wonder why Europe has no worthy military.

Walker’s speech at RJC and Christie’s settlement comments reveal why it is so important to have educated pols.

Christie’s settlement comments recall his appointment of Islamists to Jersey court. He is either fool or knave, not a president.

I once asked a Russian finance minister who promised he would answer any question in a private lunch about Putin. He refused citing fears.

It’s odd, isn’t it that, unlike Obama, no one is claiming Cruz is too inexperienced to run for president. One is a fake; the other is real.

Politicians that think in terms of territories & settlements can’t claim to be pro-Israel because their mind and language is pro-Palestinian
