‘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.

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.

Woodrow W. Bush

by Patrick J. Buchanan – May 21, 2002 We need to raise the tenor of the debate in Washington and place national security interests before party interests.

by Patrick J. Buchanan – May 14, 2002 “The commonest error in politics is sticking to the carcasses of dead policies,” observed Lord Salisbury, the prime minister who presided over Britain’s rapprochement with the United States.
