All the president's enemies
Mitch McConnell is no Vladimir Putin

January 19, 2022  •  The Washington Times

As he begins his second year in office this week, President Biden looks toward the horizon and sees multiple challenges and threats. Three of the most worrisome:

Russia's strongman, Vladimir Putin, having taken the Crimean Peninsula and Donbass region from neighboring Ukraine, now has troops poised for a possible further invasion of that former Soviet state.

Iran's strongman, Ali Khamenei, who commands military proxies in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Yemen, is continuing to develop nuclear weapons, key to furthering his neo-imperialist ambitions.

The U.N.'s final solution to the Israel question

January 12, 2022  •  The Washington Times

Historians usually date the start of the Holocaust to June of 1941 when German troops invaded the Soviet Union, identified Jewish civilians, lined them up and shot them by the thousands. Later, concentration camps equipped with gas chambers elevated the slaughter to an industrial scale.

But that timetable omits something important. After his accession to power in 1933, Hitler began a campaign to demonize and delegitimize Jews, accusing them of imaginary crimes, conveying the message that Jews are a vile and guilty race, deserving of punishment.

The American Revolution was not about tyranny (or slavery)

December 29, 2021  •  The Washington Times

Science is never settled. Among those who established that: Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, and Einstein. History is never settled either. No one has done more to establish that than Andrew Roberts, the great British historian.

His new biography, The Last King of America: The Misunderstood Reign of George III, radically and persuasively revises our understanding of both the monarch and the revolution that gave rise to the United States of America.

Biden's weak defense of democracy

December 22, 2021  •  The Washington Times

The Summit for Democracy upset China's totalitarian rulers. That's the most positive thing I can say about the two-day, virtual conference convened by President Biden earlier this month.

An editorial in the "Global Times," one of Beijing's many propaganda organs, fumed that the purpose of the meeting was to declare the U.S. "still the boss."

It further asserted: "From the COVID-19 fight to anti-racial discrimination, the US has not done anything worthy of being put on a window display in the West." From the regime that let loose a global pandemic and is persecuting its Uyghur minority to the point of genocide that's chutzpah on steroids.
