Both the United States and Great Britain crossed historic thresholds last week. I will get to the British in a few paragraphs. No Republican candidate who has won the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries has ever been denied his party's nomination, and the only people who have never before run ...Read More...

The Pope’s ill-considered comments about Donald Trump are of a piece with hysterical overreactions to him and his candidacy in this and other countries. No pope has ever overtly intervened in an American political campaign before. Such interventions are not historically uncommon in some places. Pius ...Read More...

Saturday evening's debate in Greenville, S.C., was not a great night for the Republicans. All of the five surviving candidates accomplished more or less what they set out to achieve. But the atmosphere of accusation and almost continuous interruption must have reduced the credibility of the whole group ...Read More...

Three horrible notions of government intervention have been floating around in Canada recently, and they should be vaporized before they settle in the nostrils of the federal government, historically susceptible as federal Liberals have sometimes been to nasty outbreaks of that contagion. First is the ...Read More...

The New Hampshire primary illustrated the determination of the American public to chastise the political class responsible for the successive national disasters of the last 20 years, both parties, all branches and levels of government.

The defence review that the federal government has promised by the end of 2016 will be the first in more than 20 years. Given the amounts of money and numbers of people and strategic and industrial questions involved, and the infrequency of such searching examinations, it will be a very important initiative ...Read More...

Bernie Sanders was the big winner in Iowa, as he had, as he called it, a “virtual tie” with Hillary Clinton, and the Vermont senator has set himself a fine launch into the neighboring state of New Hampshire, where he should trounce Mrs. Clinton next week. The Republican night was toe-curlingly excruciating. ...Read More...

The anti-John A. Macdonald demonstration by a group of protesting native people in Kingston on Jan. 11, the 201st birthday of the country’s chief founder, was a shocking incident that has been under-publicized. At the same time as an effigy of Macdonald was hanged, burned, and stabbed, there was a respectful ...Read More...

China’s greatest senior level government purges and its greatest roll-back of freedom of expression since the lunacy of the Maoist Cultural Revolution almost 50 years ago have been occurring for several years and have been relatively passively noticed in the world.

The West’s leaders have failed conspicuously, yet again, over world oil prices, as they have failed as a group to grapple with almost any serious problem for some years. The latest fiasco is the attempt by the leaders of the democratic world to blame their economic ills on the decline of the world oil ...Read More...

The North Koreans, perhaps the loopiest regime in the world that actually governs a defined and recognized country, now claims to have a hydrogen bomb. In reality, it may not yet, but eventually it will. We have chiefly the Chinese to thank for this, as North Korea could not in practice accomplish anything ...Read More...

The country, bloody, bowed, is yet lumbering determinedly forward, toward the last year of the Obama economic, social, and geopolitical miracle. All polls, from right to left, show the administration’s disapproval rating 10 to 20 points ahead of its approval rating; all show 65 to 80 percent of the ...Read More...

It is time to look more seriously at the Donald Trump presidential candidacy. He continues to lead the polls among Republicans; his closest rivals seem now to be Senators Mario Rubio and Ted Cruz, easing ahead of Dr. Ben Carson. There does not seem to have been much effort to see the Trump candidacy ...Read More...

My views of the Paris conference on the environment were published here last week and need not be revisited. But I think the phenomenon of climate change rigidity is so unusual and widespread, it is worthy of more analysis.

There is something deeply disturbing about the Obama administration’s handling of the Islamic-terrorism issue, from Iraq and Syria to San Bernardino; and with its feckless preoccupation with climate-change questions.

In general, we want to encourage politicians to do after they win elections what they promised they would do before the election, and from that perspective it is hard to blame Justin Trudeau for continuing to promise to withdraw Canada’s CF-18’s from the air war against the Islamic State (ISIS).

The incoming federal government has the strongest mandate since the election of Brian Mulroney 31 years ago; as Jean Chrétien won elections that were contested by five parties that would have been cliff-hangers if the opposition had been as consolidated as it became after he was ousted by his own party; ...Read More...
