    Departing Depardieu: French Icon Says “Non” to Taxes, Gives D.C. a Lesson

    It’s not often that a Frenchman becomes a hero to conservatives, and extremely rare when he happens to be an actor. But even some Frenchmen have a threshold of pain when it comes to the confiscatory state. In this case it has been Gerard Depardieu, France’s best known thespian, who … More

    Jim DeMint to Become Heritage's Next President

    Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) will leave the U.S. Senate next year to become president of The Heritage Foundation, succeeding Edwin J.

    Morning Bell: Obama Whispers Away America's Security

    It is hard to overstate the dangerous implications of what happened this week when President Obama was caught by an open mic sending a message to Russia’s dictator-in-waiting to wait quietly till after the November elections, after which Mr. Obama could make concessions on America’s national defense.

    Morning Bell: Bringing the Light of Freedom to Cuba

Years ago, an equally desperate Anglican clergyman tried to stem dwindling … More

    The reaction of bloggers in two remaining communist dictatorships to the recent deaths of pro-freedom crusader Vaclav Havel and his polar opposite, North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Il, tells you all you need to know about why communists can’t hold elections. In the restricted cyberspace afforded to Chinese and Cubans … More

    Obama Wants to Cut Taxes? Don't Believe It for a Second.

    Liberals stumping for tax cuts are as rare as three-dollar bills and hardcover digital books, and for good reason. Devoid of any other organizing principle, the only job of progressivism today is to grow government, and taxation is the blood stream of government. It is thus with the same healthy … More

    The Unreported Tragedy of Cuba's Repressive Communist Regime

    Cuba—to listen to, watch or read some of the media—is a place that has remained unbowed in the face of impoverishment by the U.S. embargo. Lately what you hear is that it is attempting to make bold reforms not just in the economy, but socially as well (it just allowed … More
