Sweeping through Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania this week, Joe Biden reassured all three that the United States' commitment to Article Five of the NATO treaty remains "solemn" and "iron clad." Article Five commits us to war if the territory of any of these tiny Baltic nations is violated by Russia.

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars.

Editor Lenore Devore thinks reporters should look at the wheat to be found in public records, and not the chaff of press releases peddled by taxpayer-supported ministers of disinformation.

Martin County isn't used to taking no for an answer, but it might find defeating All Aboard Florida a too-steep hill to climb.

It is reminiscent of the quandary faced by Gen. Maurice Gamelin on the evening of May 15, 1940. Suddenly he realized that German panzer troops had broken through the supposedly impassable Ardennes. French troops to the north were cut off and rendered useless, troops to the south were falling back in disarray on all sides and no reserves were available between the front and Paris. "Yes," he told the prime minister, "it means the destruction of the French Army."

WASHINGTON -- "Once an agent, always an agent." This was the terse response of Nina Khrushcheva on New Year's Eve 1999 when her mother commented favorably about the new president, Vladimir Putin, who was then speaking on TV.

There is a bipartisan push in the Florida Capitol to pass legislation which would grant in-state tuition (or an equivalent tuition discount) to illegal immigrants. As a fiscal conservative, I strongly disagree with the ideology, intent, and rationale of HB 851 and SB 1400.

Vladimir Putin seems to have lost touch with reality, Angela Merkel reportedly told Barack Obama after speaking with the Russian president. He is "in another world.""I agree with what Angela Merkel said ... that he is in another world," said Madeleine Albright, "It doesn't make any sense."

In marshes somewhere south of Lake Helen Blazes, the St. Johns River is formed. It slowly meanders north one of only a few rivers in North America that flow in that direction.

WASHINGTON -- There's nothing quite so helpful as a fatwa and threats of a Christian boycott to create buzz in advance of a new movie. "Noah," scheduled for its U.S. release on March 28, has become such a target. The United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain have banned the movie because it depicts a prophet, which, as Danish cartoonists will attest, isn't the peachiest of ideas in certain circles.

We all want our loved ones to get the very best care when they no longer can live on their own and instead need the care that only a nursing home can provide.

Liberals view the term "compassionate conservatism" as an oxymoron. How could it not be so? they ask.
