Ron Paul’s Last Hurrah(15)
What, exactly, is Ron Paul’s endgame? What does he want? This is the question the pundits are asking, and the answer is maddeningly elusive.
Am I a Threat to National Security?(5)
Find out who the FBI’s most-wanted is, and which magazine they’re reading.
To Teach or To Sneer(16)
Authentic conservatives and their libertarian allies have long been a small minority in a larger movement that, for the most part, rejected their radical critique of the managerial state. The “paleos” were singled out for attack by the neoconservatives, that exotic sect of ex-leftists prophetically described by Russell Kirk as “this little Sacred Band—which had made itself exclusive, and now finds itself excluded.”
Going Green for Goldman(7)
What’s behind the cult of “global warming”? We’ve been hearing about it for years on television, in magazines, from politicians, and from certain corporate entities: Mankind is destroying the earth, and the only solution is to “go green.” Unless we radically change our behavior, the oceans will rise, catastrophe will ensue, and that will be the end of life as we know it.
Is Atlas shrugging in Brazil? This just in: “A massive power failure blacked out Brazil’s two largest cities and other parts of Latin America’s biggest nation for more than two hours late Tuesday, leaving millions of people in the dark after a huge hydroelectric dam suddenly went offline.”

But now, at last, she’s come out with it—and she’s naming names.
Kristol, Missiles, and a Big Boat(3)
The decision by the Obama administration to scrap the missile “defense” shield that Bush had promised to install in Poland and the Czech Republic has been described by the neocon Right as nothing short of “appeasement”—but whom, exactly, is Obama supposed to be “appeasing”? According to the War Party, it’s Vladimir Putin, who is regularly portrayed as the neo-Stalin, ready, willing, and able to move westward and revive the Warsaw Pact.
EXCLUSIVE: Guns and Roses(83)
When one William Kostric walked into a protest outside a town hall meeting in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, at which the President of the United States was present, carrying a loaded gun—“Of course it was loaded,” he told Chris Matthews later, “what kind of fool would carry around an unloaded gun?”—he and the movement he purports to represent walked straight into a well-laid trap.
Obama as Lincoln: Mask and Mirror(7)
Obama’s identification with Lincoln is all tied up with the issue of race and the idea that an Obama presidency is somehow the fulfillment of the Lincolnian dream of a land where the descendant of slaves could attain the highest office in the land. But of course there is nothing Lincolnian about this dream
