Does the South Belong in the Union?

Does the South Belong in the Union?

By Patrick J. Buchanan Is the Second Reconstruction over? The first ended with the withdrawal of Union troops from the Southern states as part of a deal that gave Rutherford B. Hayes the presidency after the disputed election of 1876. The second began with the Voting Rights Act of 1965, a century after Appomattox. Under […]

Is America Still a Good Country?

Is America Still a Good Country?

By Patrick J. Buchanan “Not until I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.” So wrote Alexis de […]

John Roberts Makes His Career Move

By Patrick J. Buchanan For John Roberts, it is Palm Sunday. Out of relief and gratitude for his having saved Obamacare, he is being compared to John Marshall and Oliver Wendell Holmes. Liberal commentators are burbling that his act of statesmanship has shown us the way to the sunny uplands of a new consensus. If […]

The Antietam of the Culture War

By Patrick J. Buchanan It took Joe Biden’s public embrace of same-sex marriage to smoke him out.

Among the more famous of these were “The Fox and the Grapes” and “The Tortoise and the Hare.” Particularly appropriate this Christmas season, and every Christmas lately, is Aesop’s fable of “The Dog in the Manger.” The tale is about […]

The Death of Moral Community

By Patrick J. Buchanan “The opponents (of same-sex marriage) have no case other than ignorance and misconception and prejudice.” So writes Richard Cohen in his celebratory column about Gov. Andrew Cuomo‘s role in legalizing gay marriage in New York state. Now, given that no nation in 20 centuries of Christendom legalized homosexual marriage, and, in […]

Are Liberals Anti-WASP?

By Patrick J. Buchanan “A chorus of black commentators and civic leaders has begun expressing frustration over (Elena) Kagan’s hiring record as Harvard dean. From 2003 to 2009, 29 faculty members were hired: 28 were white and one was Asian American.” CNN pundit Roland Martin slammed “Kagan’s record on diversity as one that a ‘white […]

Why No Evangelical Justice?

by Patrick J. Buchanan When Republicans were warned not to give Sonia Sotomayor the drubbing Democrats gave Robert Bork and Sam Alito — lest they be perceived as sexist and racist by women and Hispanics — the threat was credible, for it underscored a new reality in American politics. The Supreme Court, far from being […]
