    Paul Ryan’s biggest failure

    America’s democratic institutions are under attack, and Paul Ryan isn’t defending them. One can certainly understand, if not quite sympathize with, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s predicament.

    The Bolshoi’s Swans of Steel

    The language of ballet is one of dramatic gesture: In La Bayadère, after the beautiful temple dancer is bitten by a poisonous snake, she communicates her resignation to death by throwing her hands up in the air; when Giselle discovers her lover is betrothed, she begins to dance wildly, eventually dying of broken-hearted exhaustion; in Swan Lake,...

    Hillary Clinton, Wannabe Global Dominatrix and Liberal Neocon, Plans more Stupid Wars

    Never before were the two leading presidential candidates so disliked. Both major parties have nominated candidates that most Americans desperately want to reject. There many reasons to oppose Hillary Clinton: a history of scandal, reaching back to Bill Clinton’s Arkansas governorship; greedy, grasping friendships with economic elites; and...
