By Patrick J. Buchanan With Vladimir Putin having bloodlessly annexed Crimea and hinting that his army might cross the border to protect the Russians of East Ukraine, Washington is abuzz with talk of dispatching U.S. troops to Eastern Europe. But unless we have lost our minds, we are not going to fight Russia over territory […]

By Patrick J. Buchanan On our TV talk shows and op-ed pages, and in our think tanks here, there is rising alarm over events abroad.

By Patrick J. Buchanan “Neo-isolationism is the direct product of foolish globalism. … Compared to people who thought they could run the universe, or at least the globe, I am neo-isolationist and proud of it.” Those are not the words of an old America Firster, but the declaration of that icon of the liberal establishment […]

By Patrick J. Buchanan Chutzpah. I believe that’s the word for it.
