Jamestown As It Never Was

by Patrick J. Buchanan On the 400th anniversary of the Jamestown Settlement, Queen Elizabeth II arrived to commemorate the great occasion. And it took some fancy footwork for Her Majesty to run the Powhatan gauntlet. For Her Majesty had been to Jamestown before, 50 years ago, in a less progressive era. As the Associated Press […]

U.S. On the Hook for Tallinn

by Patrick J. Buchanan All week, young toughs in Moscow have besieged the Estonian embassy to harass Ambassador Marina Kaljurand. Her bodyguards had to use a mace-like spray to drive back the thugs, who call Estonia a “fascist country.” Estonian diplomats and their families are being pulled out of Moscow and sent home. Relations between […]

The Dark Side of Diversity

Buchanan Since the massacre of 32 students and teachers at Virginia Tech, the mainstream media have obsessed over the fact the crazed gunman was able to buy a Glock in the state of Virginia.

And because of those two hours of slaughter and suicide, Cho attained the immortality he craved. He carried out the killings – and we […]

Wolfie’s Bank

by Patrick J. Buchanan Barracks language edited out, Tommy Franks once referred to the Pentagon’s No. 3, Doug Feith, as “the dumbest guy on the planet.” It now appears Gen.

The Imus Lynch Party

by Patrick J. Buchanan In the end, it was not about Imus. It was about us. Are we really a better country because, after he was publicly whipped for 10 days as the worst kind of racist, with whom no decent person could associate, he was thrown off the air? Cards on the table. This […]
