Presidential Candidates Miss Teachable Moment on Cuba’s Human Rights Abuses

Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders has been touting the Communist regime of Fidel Castro. This presents an opportunity for candidates to enlighten Millennials and such about grim Cuban realities. So far, Democrats are missing out, and the one most at fault may be former South Bend, Ind., mayor, and now former presidential candidate, Pete Buttigieg,...

“Crazy, Stupid” Federal Spending Proposals from Candidates of Both Parties

Digging below the surface of the November 2016 election results, however, suggests that Clinton’s presidential bid was doomed from the beginning.

Debate: Hillary Clinton’s Judgment, as Secretary of State

The most outrageous statement on foreign policy in the Democratic debate was that Hillary Clinton defended the overthrow of Libyan Muammar Gaddafi by saying that it involved no U.S. ground troops and led to the first democratic election ever in Libya.

Mayoral Nostalgia for the New Deal

In an article published in the Wall Street Journal on March 8, 2010, Louise Radnofsky reports that the U.S. Conference of Mayors claims it “can put thousands to work on infrastructure projects, as was done in the 1930s.” The mayors expressed a collective willingness to hire people on jobs that benefit their communities—provided, of...
