End of Diplomacy?
Our embassies are now fortresses guarded in many cases by 20 to 30 Marines, plus State Dept. security agents. In much of the world conventional diplomacy is a thing of the past. Have our various wars on drugs, terror, Al Qiada, preventive wars, economic wars destroyed the usefulness of traditional diplomacy and embassies? Have we entered a new era where maintaining embassies and diplomats abroad no longer serve any useful purpose, except as a target?
The biggest mistake Americans have ever made is not electing you as President. You are a true American. Watch you on Mclaughlin Group. If I ever win the lottery I will hire you to attend a party. By the way, it is illegal to ask a suspected illegal immigrant for ID but not to kill a suspected terrorist. RIP U.S.A. We are becoming a third world country.
Will you save this Republic?
Pat, if this country is to survive, it will need you to take the lead of a group of folks to turn out the paleocon vote in 2014. Now is the time, this is the day to begin reclaiming what our founders gave to us, if you sound the trumpet that shall never call retreat, millions of Pat\'s Patriots will come out of the woodwork and be the phalanx of Ameican victory over international socialism!
Pat, your Duty to truth is so darn inspiring.
I also love your sense of humor.
The Republican Obsession
Thank you for being one of the view brave voices on the extremely important topic of Israel's all- powerful lobby. It is common knowledge that Israel has a virtual lock on America's foreign policy initiatives. To deny otherwise is pure fantasy.
To my knowledge, during Hagel’s eight hours of testimony, he was not asked a single question regarding Israel’s ongoing policy of illegal settlements in the West Bank. These “settlements” are in violation of International Law, the Geneva Convention and the UN has repeatedly condemned them. Yet, the illegal settlements continue. The Palestinians are being forced to live with this illegal military occupation and watch helplessly while the Israelis continue to steal their land from them, demolishing their homes in the process. What exactly is the policy of the United States government regarding this illegal action by our “greatest ally?”
Whenever anyone questions any Israeli policy, immediately the charge of “anti-Semitic” is made in an attempt to silence all discussion and stop any opposition in its tracks. Pat Buchanan has certainly been the victim of this Saul Alinsky tactic throughout his public life. Question: if it is “anti-Semitic” to question Israeli policies (Invasion of Lebanon 2006, settlements in the West Bank, etc.), why is it that so many Israelis oppose that policy and blame them on radical Zionists? Are they “anti-Semitic” as well? Hardly.
Pat- Great article about the unspoken truth. We are slaves to Israel, and they are no friend to us.
Your friend, JD
Nice review of the Hagel hearing. Nit\'s time to start cutting before the patient dies. Rally the masses now!
A Voice of Reason
Mr. Buchanan, Pat if I may be so bold, for so many years I have admired your stance on so many various issues facing this country. You boldly speak your mind when so many others fall into the trap of wanting to be either politically correct or to espouse some yet undefined political dogma. You do realize that your latest article "The Republican Obsession" will not garner you any favors from either the Republican party or the Israeli lobby. Yet you speak the truth and for that my admiration for you never ceases.
I supported you in the 2000 presidential election and truly regret that you were not our President to lead this nation onto a better path.
Decline of West
Will Durant, author of the volumes entailed The Story of Civilization on page 71 of the first volume concludes thus:
\"The movement of liberation rises to an exuberant worship of reason, and falls to a paralyzing disillusionment with every dogma and every idea. Conduct, deprived of its religious supports, deteriorates into epicurean chaos; and life itself, shorn of consoling faith, becomes a burden alike to conscious poverty and to weary wealth. In the end, a society and its religion tend to fall together, like body and soul, in a harmonious death.\"
Hi, Love reading your articles. I have one complaint. The MSM and all politicians keep saying there are 11 million illegal immigrants here. It was 11 million 25 years ago!!! The actual numbers are close to 30 million!! We must seal our borders and stop rewarding law breakers.
You are right
Pat, you are so very right, Obama is destroying the United States republic and the sheeple in this country who believe his every word are as bad as the people who believed Adolf and allowed him to come to power in Germany.
Your the Light!
Pat Buchanan each time I see you on the TV, which isn't near enough, I am inspired that there are real American left in this land. Read your great books, some more than once! I wish you the very best in life! Thank you for standing up for Americans! in a hostile land.
Thank you for defending Chuck Hagel. Sean and Co. are ganging up on this great American; could it be that Chuck is used to prevent his future as a great President? It appears he is too good and would upset the DC Gang\'s applecart.
Pat, It\'s time to take the initiative. We need your populist message on Sirius XM, on an Internet blog, and on every radio station and in every newspaper in the country. Patrick J. Buchanan is the Professor of Populism and we need his seminar! Please get the message out everywhere you can Pat!
Mr. Pat , Sir your thoughts are brilliant and dead on. Your Death of a Superpower is on point. More people like you need to lead the republican party and put the morality back in the party.
Thats gonna "stir'em up" Pat, but as usual you are dead on the money. Please keep pitching and PLEASE run again in "16.
Am subscribing to your "Columns" and thanks "for being there"
Women in Combat
Pat, I noticed McLaughlin ended the program last Sunday without allowing your opinion on \"women in combat.\" Hope you will address the issue at some point. Conservatives have been strangely silent on the issue so far, perhaps because so much else is going on?
Thank you for this editorial column. It is the first honest comment I have ever read. As a southerner, I\'m really weary of the whole issue. Southern folks in 2013 are also just trying to survive.
Pat Buchanan had the guts to say it. It is about time!!
BUCHANAN TO OBAMA - By Patrick J. Buchanan
\"Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America....\"
Add Opinion Terror to Bratwurst
Several years ago we had a lively town-hall e-mail discussion on a number of topics. One was for you to introduce to your world-wide readers\' vocabulary, the German word Meinungsterror. After all, Gestalt, Angst and, most importantly, Bratwurst have made it.
When contravention or contradiction to political correctness becomes criminalized it must be spoken of as Opinion Terror - or Meinungsterror. Surely, the freest media in the world won\'t do it for us.
Thanks for your contributions to a dwindling world of rationality. Charles Frey
I am a registered republican voter in Missouri, and a conservative. I am pro-life, pro-education and many more but won\'t list them here. I embrace the republican platform, and I believe in God and promote the Gospel. Your articles are right on! During the 2012 election, my 10 year old son made a statement that I think was priceless. He and I were following the conventions, and watching the debates. Out of the blue he said, \' Dad, do you think they\'ll lower the cost of Lego\'s?\" That\'s what a 10-year-old is concerned with in his world, and rightly so. Out of the mouth of babes.
Mr. Buchanan, please continue the fight against the ideology that would bring this country down. Bless your efforts.
2014 and beyond
Pat, now is the time for you and all the Paleocon leadership to begin organizing and planning for a take over in 2014 of US Congress and state Governorships (and Legislatures) by our crowd, so that we will be ready in 2016 to put in an American Government that is more alligned with what the founding fathers wanted than what counter culture liberal UN lovers want us to become. With you as President and our folks in control of congresss & the legislatures, we can ammend the Constitution and impeach bad judges, thereby cementing forever our will as the controlling authority in this country. vivat jesus!
Indeed, right from the start
Dear Sir, I am a St. Louis boy who used to see you and fellow writers from the Globe Democrat at the MOGrill. My late Dad was a fan of yours and Martin Duggan. The Post-Disgrace reigns supreme and the ignorant voters in St. Louis become more ignorant each day. I want you to know that I have always enjoyed your books and your frankness and I appreciate how you never cease to fight for America and point out where we are headed. You inspire me to read the writings of philosophers and theologians and I came across the quote from Tocqueville "America is great because it is good, and if America ceases to be good, She will cease to be great." This really hit me, and I feel that God has had enough of our foolishness, and we are now paying for abusing the freedoms we inherited. You have been one of the few to speak the truth and present the facts as they are, and I wish to say thank you for your efforts. I know my Dad would be proud of you as when he would point you out at the table at the MoGrill and say to me, "And there is Pat Buchanan!" God bless you and your efforts.
I am a democrat. I had the sheriff come to my door a few months ago looking for votes. I told him I was a one issue voter and the issue was immigration. He spluttered and looked confused and said\' \"immigration is a federal issue.\" I told him Sheriff Arpaio of Arizona did not think so. He seemed upset and and more befuddled than any sheriff I I have seen before and soon left. I was hoping he would ask me what kind of democrat I was so I could have told him\' \"I am a Pat Buchanan democrat!\"
God bless and keep you well Mr. Buchanan, we need a million more like you.
PJB SB Required Reading!
I don't agree with ALL of your positions, but I believe your books should be required reading for anyone thinking American who believes there is no common ground between REAL conservatives and REAL Liberals. In fact, In my book The Republicrat Junta, a recurring thread identifies the numerous topics on which Noam Chomsky and yourself espouse the exact same positions. I would vote for a Buchanan/Chomsky ticket (or a Ron Paul/Dennis Kucinich ticked) any day of the week. Keep up the great, HONEST work.
Pat - enjoyed your comments very much last week at the Richard Nixon function. you got a well deserved standing O, whereas Dr. K - great accent after 79 years - did not. best wishes, don brock. (former USDA big cheese)
