by Patrick J. Buchanan – July 15, 2002 Any regular viewer of CNN, MSNBC or Fox News has seen the videotape: A handcuffed black 16-year-old being body-slammed on the hood of a police car and punched in the face by a white cop.

Heading into A New Afghan War

by Patrick J. Buchanan – July 10, 2002 “We face an entirely new war,” said Gen.

The July 4th Surrender

by Patrick J. Buchanan – July 9, 2002 Call it the Independence Day capitulation or July Fourth surrender.

The globalists called our bluff, […]

Bush and World Government

by Patrick J. Buchanan – July 3, 2002 When the U.N.

Time For a Little Rebellion

by Patrick J. Buchanan – July 1, 2002 “I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.” So Jefferson wrote to fellow Virginian James Madison in the year Madison authored his country’s Constitution.

The Time of the Terrorist

by Patrick J. Buchanan – June 24, 2002 “You wish to give this evil animal a reservation that is called a Palestinian state of terror,” roared Effi Eitan, minister to Ariel Sharon.

Do We Have a License to Kill?

by Patrick J. Buchanan – June 18, 2002 In the old James Bond films, Sean Connery played Agent 007. The double-0 meant Bond was one of but a handful of British agents who were licensed to kill. So it would appear is George W. Bush. According to Bob Woodward of the Washington Post, President Bush […]

‘Twas a Famous Media Victory

by Patrick J. Buchanan – June 17, 2002 With the 30th anniversary of the Watergate break-in hard upon us, the calls are coming in.

The Bad Old Days of J. Edgar Hoover

by Patrick J. Buchanan – June 12, 2002 “J. Edgar Hoover is Back: FBI Wages Secret War Against U.S. Citizens.” So runs the alarmist headline over Monday’s column in The Washington Times by civil libertarian Nat Hentoff.
