The Gloom and Doom Generation

Buffalo Bill WEST ORANGE, N.J.—When I was a young man, and the editor, or the producer, or the executive, would tell me that he was about to censor me, the reason was always, “Your material offends the older people.” Now that I’m one of the older people, when the editor, or the producer, or the…

Are Bibi and Bolton in the Wheel House Now?

Are Bibi and Bolton in the Wheel House Now?

By Patrick J. Buchanan Brushing aside the anguished pleas of our NATO allies, President Trump Tuesday contemptuously trashed the Iranian nuclear deal and reimposed sanctions.

THESE Are Mueller’s Questions?

THESE Are Mueller’s Questions?

photo credit: Bigstock PORT ORCHARD, Wash.—So, yeah, it’s kind of obvious why Robert Mueller’s “secret questions that he wants to ask Trump” got leaked to the New York Times.

Don’t Trash the Nuclear Deal!

Memo to Trump: Defy Mueller

Memo to Trump: Defy Mueller

By Patrick J. Buchanan If Donald Trump does not wish to collaborate in the destruction of his presidency, he will refuse to be questioned by the FBI, or by a grand jury, or by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his malevolent minions.

Why It Was So Easy to Nuke the White House Media Stuffed-Shirt Dinner

Why It Was So Easy to Nuke the White House Media Stuffed-Shirt Dinner

Hunter S. Thompson NEW YORK—Leave it to a bunch of self-important self-righteous self-serious journalists to miss the whole point. (That’s what they call themselves. They prefer the French word instead of the word that was used for 150 years—“reporter.”) I’m talking about the now-infamous White House Correspondents Dinner at which Michelle Wolf lacerated some of…

Smut Night at the Press Dinner

Smut Night at the Press Dinner

By Patrick J. Buchanan Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, billed as a celebration of the First Amendment and a tribute to journalists who “speak truth to power,” has to be the worst advertisement in memory for our national press corps.

Macron: The Last Multilateralist

By Patrick J.

Yo! Gwyneth! Shut Up!

photo credit: Bigstock NEW YORK—Several hundred emails pour in each week asking me about the Joe Bob Wellness Regimen. People wanna know, “How do you do it, Joe Bob?

America’s Unsustainable Empire

America’s Unsustainable Empire

By Patrick J. Buchanan Before President Trump trashes the Iran nuclear deal, he might consider: If he could negotiate an identical deal with Kim Jong Un, it would astonish the world and win him the Nobel Peace Prize.

Why the Authoritarian Right Is Rising

Why the Authoritarian Right Is Rising

By Patrick J. Buchanan A fortnight ago, Viktor Orban and his Fidesz Party won enough seats in the Hungarian parliament to rewrite his country’s constitution. To progressives across the West, this was disturbing news. For the bete noire of Orban’s campaign was uber-globalist George Soros. And Orban’s commitments were to halt any further surrenders of…

Reviewing the Plots Against the Clean Water/Clean Air Guy

Scott Pruitt NEW YORK—At first I was just like everyone else. Why would Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, need twelve extra highly trained SWAT-team-capable security guards and a $43,000 Maxwell Smart-style soundproof phone booth in his office? The guy’s job is clean air and clean water, right? He’s heading the agency…
