Onward Into Waziristan!

by Patrick J. Buchanan With Hillary Clinton’s lead growing, Barack Obama appears to be overreaching to keep the spotlight and highlight their differences.

Is the Bush Doctrine Dead?

by Patrick J. Buchanan – October 17, 2006 Between Sept. 11, 2001, and his State of the Union Address in 2002, George W. Bush had America in the palm of his hand. But in that speech, Bush blew it. Singling out Iran, Iraq and North Korea as state sponsors of terror seeking weapons of mass […]
