By Patrick J. Buchanan On many issues — naming Scalia-like judges and backing Reagan-like tax cuts — President Trump is a conventional Republican.

By Patrick J. Buchanan With Greece on the precipice of default, and Portugal and Italy approaching the ledge, the European monetary union appears in peril.

By Patrick J. Buchanan For those who have read about or vaguely remember the stolid British tribe of Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain and the Blitz, which held out in its “finest hour,” last week brought a disgusting sight.

By Patrick J. Buchanan When communism collapsed in Moscow, Prague and Belgrade at the end of the Cold War, ethnic nationalism surged to the surface in all three nations and tore them apart into 24 countries.
