U.S. Trade Deficit Worsening

IGHT UP UNTIL THE COMMODITY bubble burst this summer, there was the ridiculous theory going around that the world was now "decoupled" and that European and emerging markets would somehow avoid being affected by the US slowdown. These decoupling theories disappeared as oil dropped like a rock, only to be replaced by an equally ridiculous idea: that the world's economic pain would be spread evenly. This is wrong. Although the entire world is going into a recession as a result of the credit crisis, some economies are better prepared than others to weather the storm. Durable and capital goodsThe US's...

Obama Talkin' Trash Is Hardly News

Well now, NR columnist Kathleen Parker has settled back down if only somewhat into her more familiar conservative roots with a few choice words about the new president. We must remember that Ms. Parker was the "good Republican" woman who tore into Governor Sarah Palin as being "out of her league" in this new role as Republican VP nominee. This was an outrageous attack, given the fact that many of us were and are still cringing note for note the same bristling song about the Chicago ACORN-tainted community organizer named Barack Obama. Hell, with the long line of political scoundrels...


Is Europe Abandoning Socialism?

The following article by Joseph Farah will display what is at work here. The utter ruin of American competitiveness. That's the blueprint these Marxist Democratic party apparatchiks are using to shore up power for themselves and render the United States more pliable for the big takeover they have already begun executing. Paranoia or keen insight? You be the judge now, or history will do it for you. OW IRONIC IS IT THAT the U.S. is embracing socialism at the very moment Europe and many other parts of the world are running away from it? Somebody needs to ask Barack Obama...


British Cave Again To Muslim Threats

This is a rather disgusting turn of events. How far will these ungrateful thugs masquerading as religious nuts have to go before the West wakes from its dhimmi slouch? For a once great empire like Great Britain to be brought to its knees as slaves to the barbarians in their midst without even a whimper is preposterous. And yet each day brings outrageous news and presents those watchful example after example of the madness that is mindless multiculturalism, weakening once prosperous nations with fear and acquiescence to these purpose-driven invaders who want nothing less than total domination and annihilation of...


Netanyahu Defiant Against Appeasers

SRAEL'S SECURITY CHALLENGES ARE daunting. Hamas remains in power and will try to rearm itself with an even more deadly arsenal. This goes without saying, however much the Arab and Western Left wish to spin "context" contrary to the facts on then ground since day one of Israel's declaration of independence as a modern state on May 14, 1948. The Israeli papers carried reports on Monday (here, for instance) about an article in the London-based Arabic daily Asharq Al-Awsat claiming Egypt was warning Hamas to strike a deal with Israel before Binyamin Netanyahu forms the next government. Otherwise, the Egyptian...
