If there was any remaining question that corporate oligarchs and today's educational ruling class now have near Orwellian control over all of American culture, this week's news should remove all doubt.

'Yes to nationalism, no to imperialism'

Yoram Hazony's breathtakingly counterintuitive book, "The Virtue of Nationalism" (Basic Books), corrects a simple but colossal mistake: The Nazi monstrosity, he argues, did not result from nationalism but from imperialism.

Why the Fed shouldn't compete with private banks

Do we want the U.S. Federal Reserve Board to operate as a commercial bank -- and compete with our private banking system? The Fed apparently wants to and it's a policy shift that could greatly expand the mission of the Fed.

The ridiculous U.K. banning of Michael Savage

- The Washington Times

Radio giant Michael Savage, who's been outright banned from the United Kingdom for 10-plus years, sent, through his attorney, an open letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson asking him to reverse course and toss out the ban. And indeed Johnson should. It's high time these ridiculous claims leveled in 2009 against Savage -- an icon of American media, a friend to the cause of the patriot -- be removed.

Where Elizabeth Warren stands on public education

- The Washington Times

The senior senator from Massachusetts doesn't have much to say for herself, considering she teaches law school and kicks the costs of the can labeled "Forgive Them Their College Debt" down the road ... way down the road.

Remembering a lifetime of friendship with Bill Schulz

Among the pictures posted by William Schulz's family on the funeral parlor's website last week, one went straight to my heart: a young, smiling, shaggy-haired Bill Schulz sitting on my family's back porch in Carmel, New York. In his lap is the scruffy family dog named Lady Muttley.

Running to ruination

It takes uncommon stamina to run a marathon, and to finish. Winning takes something else again — endless tenacity juiced with the irrepressible confidence of, well, Donald Trump. The contest for the U.S. presidency requires these attributes, plus a four-leaf clover for good luck. With Democratic contenders for the 2020 election now catching their breath following their party's second series of televised debates, it's clear some contestants have the inside track and others are tripping over their shoelaces. This week's second round of debates demonstrated all are on the wrong track.

Parents, not ICE, the lousy ones

Many celebrities are voicing heartbreak over children being separated from parents and family members as they cross into our country illegally, then ask for help at the border. Actress Alyssa Milano was seen crying and begging for someone to do more to help the minors who are placed in facilities while being processed. I believe her heart is in the right place, but does she think decent people bring their children here in this way? Only a sociopath would suddenly jerk their little kids away from grandmothers, cousins, friends, schools, homes, beds and toys just to force the tender young souls across a continent into a foreign country.

Solve Baltimore problems locally

I live in Southwest Baltimore, just a few miles from Pratt and Monroe streets, or ground zero in the current left/right controversy. There you will find rats, mice, bed bugs and trash, including used hypodermic needles. (You'll find them in other areas of Baltimore, too.) I see rats in my backyard from time to time. When it gets cold in the winter time the mice find a way in my house. You'll find this in most major cities in America and not a few around the world.

Trump's realism opens up new possibilities with Russia

President Trump confirmed Thursday he and Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke by phone about the raging fires and about possible technical help the U.S. could offer. Moscow no doubt sees the Trump offer as the start of a pathway for better U.S.-Russia relations.

'What does Bill Weld actually believe?'

Ask anyone standing outside of a grocery store who they know is running for president against Donald Trump in 2020 and you'll probably hear all kinds of answers. One name nobody would utter: Bill Weld.

Choosing a new intelligence chief

Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats is leaving his post after two-and-a-half years of in-fighting with President Trump, who still says Russia didn't interfere in the nation's 2016 election.
