By Patrick J. Buchanan If it had been a white teenager who was shot, and a 28-year-old black guy who shot him, the black guy would have been arrested. So assert those demanding the arrest of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed Trayvon Martin. And they may be right. Yet if Trayvon had been shot […]

Douse the Flames, Mr. President!

By Patrick J. Buchanan Barack Obama’s statement that the death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy that cries out for a more thorough investigation was the right and necessary thing to say. But it fell far short of what was needed: a presidential call for a halt to the rhetoric that is stirring up racial […]

Toulouse: The Dark Side of Diversity

By Patrick J. Buchanan As an act of pure evil it was difficult to match. After dragging the 8-year-old by her hair across a schoolyard, the killer put a 9 mm pistol to the girl’s head and pulled the trigger. The gun jammed. So he took out a Colt .45 and finished her. She was […]

The Glaring Inequality of Obamaville

By Patrick J. Buchanan Rising inequality “is the defining issue of our time,” said President Obama in his Osawatomie speech that echoed the “New Nationalism” address Theodore Roosevelt delivered in that same Kansas town a century ago.

Is the GOP Becoming a War Party?

By Patrick J. Buchanan Denouncing Republican “bluster” about war with Iran, President Obama went on the offensive Tuesday: “Those who are … beating the drums of war should explain clearly to the American people what they think the costs and benefits would be.” The president had in mind such remarks as those Newt Gingrich delivered […]

Obama’s Remaking of America

by Patrick J. Buchanan Anyone who believes America’s culture wars are behind her should have started out Friday reading The Washington Times.

Why Pat Buchanan Belongs on TV

By Juan Williams – Fox News “Are you a racist, Pat?” That is a simple, direct question.
