Déjà Two

In the cover story of the Claremont Review of Books, EPPC Senior Fellow Stanley Kurtz tackles the “still poorly-understood power-sharing arrangement” of Bill and Hillary Clinton. “They are caught in a contradiction: unable to renege on their power-sharing arrangement, they are also unable to make it work.”

‘History’ Won’t Defeat ISIS

The Obama administration insists that ISIS, Russia, and other foes are “on the wrong side of history,” but, argues EPPC Senior Fellow Mona Charen, President Obama’s “own over-eagerness to disengage from global responsibilities and to back away from military commitments has stimulated just the sort of forces he describes as retrograde.”

EPPC Senior Fellow Roger Scruton makes the case that “‘soft power’ … without the hard power to back it up” is as insufficient for confronting today’s “tyrants and totalitarians” in the Middle East and Europe as it was in the 20th century.

And don’t miss EPPC Senior Fellow Peter Wehner’s recounting of the White House’s fumbling attempts to cover for President Obama’s “deeply and dangerously misinformed” comments on ISIS.

The Latest Step in the HHS Mandate Saga: The Non-Accommodation Is Still Not a Solution

The Obama administration has offered a “supposed ‘accommodation’ to extricate itself from the political and legal jam” caused by the HHS mandate, writes EPPC Senior Fellow James C. Capretta, but it is nothing more than a “moral farce” and a “phony compromise.”

Why Did British Police Ignore Pakistani Gangs Abusing 1,400 Rotherham Children? Political Correctness

The Covenant of Marriage

EPPC Distinguished Senior Fellow George Weigel tells of attending the 50th anniversary celebration of a couple married by the man who would become Pope John Paul II, and reflects on what the “priestly act” of marriage means in the life of the Church.

The Nasty, Brutish World of Richard Dawkins

EPPC Senior Fellow Peter Wehner considers Richard Dawkins’s ugly comments about children with Down syndrome, and wonders: “On what basis does Dawkins decide people have moral worth?”

The Imprint of Battle

Writing for the Wall Street Journal, EPPC Senior Fellow Bruce Cole reviews a “focused, informative exhibition” of World War I prints that comprises “often dazzling masterpieces composed only of line, light, and tone.”

Why Cops Need Cameras

Conservatives, who are “aware of the temptations of power, and wary of its abuse,” should support equipping police officers with cameras, writes EPPC Senior Fellow Mona Charen.
