Lowry: The U.S. supply chain makes no sense

If there is one universally recognized principle in American political life, it's that the president of the United States should want Christmas to come off without a hitch. Surely, this is one of the reasons Anthony Fauci rapidly backed off his comment in an interview the other day that it's ...

Buchanan: Who is killing 10,000 Black Americans every year?

"Unfortunately, Jan. 6 was not an isolated event," warned FBI Director Christopher Wray last winter: "The problem of domestic terrorism has been metastasizing across the country for a long time now, and it's not going away anytime soon." Since he became director in 2017, said Wray, FBI ...

Stossel: Smeared by Facebook ‘fact-checkers’
