Donald Trump’s Brand New Grand Old Party


Donald Trump’s Buckeye State gathering received a failing grade until Donald Trump delivered an “A+” speech. Less a Republican National Convention than a Trump Parochial Rally, the star of the four-part docudrama came to his own rescue. He did this by melding a familiar GOP message of law and order with a new trio of […]

Trump Picks Pence


Whether Donald Trump selects Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate remains, at least by this article’s filing deadline, a mystery, albeit one not requiring the services of Father Brown — Charlie Brown would do — to solve. No matter. By the time you read this, the Republican vice presidential candidate begins morphing into […]

Trump, Saddam, and American Hubris


This week punishment came to one presidential candidate telling a truth and reward came to another telling a lie. Such perverse incentives regarding honesty created the bizarro political world we inhabit. “He was a bad guy — really bad guy,” Donald Trump said of Saddam Hussein. “But you know what he did well? He killed […]

Making Britain Great Again


What France and Germany failed to do the past several centuries with bullets, they succeeded with bureaucrats. Last week, Brits succeeded in repelling the bureaucrats with ballots. Predictions of catastrophe predictably ensued. It’s a bad idea to outsource your government to foreigners. The British recognized this in voting last week to exit the European Union. […]

Affirmative-Action Decision Affirms Block of Merrick Garland


An affirmative action Supreme Court on Thursday upheld affirmative action at public universities. Shocker. Justice Anthony Kennedy dubbed “student body diversity” at the University of Texas as “central to its identity and educational mission,” and noted evidence the university advanced reporting “feelings of loneli­ness and isolation” among minority students after the earlier Hopwood case restricted […]

The Audacity of Dopes


An Islamic extremist killed 49 people in Orlando early Sunday. The president used the occasion for an angry denunciation of Republicans on Tuesday. Come again? We learn much about human psychology from observing the reactions to the mass-shooting at the Pulse nightclub. We don’t learn much about the mass-shooting, its causes, and its motivations. When […]

The UN Declares Abortion a Human Right


In the name of human rights, the United Nations orders Ireland to repeal the right to life embedded in the Catholic country’s Constitution. Will they next command governments to supply muzzles to silence nonconformists in the name of freedom of speech? A woman who claims her unborn child suffered from a terminal heart ailment complained […]

Pardon My French


He’s bald. He’s bearded. He’s who? “There will be an independent candidate — an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance,” Bill Kristol promised over the holiday weekend. The Weekly Standard editor followed the drumroll with a wha-wha-wha. David French, past president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), possesses […]

Mr. Boorish vs. Mrs. Boring


We’re getting what we evidently deserve, and how. The quadrennial national popularity contest underway pits the host of one of America’s longest running reality shows against a woman whose husband won election to the presidency. The vote always tells us at least as much about the electorate as it does the elected. Like the homecoming […]

NYT Boomerang Hit Piece on Trump


The Clinton attack squad is doltishly slow to learn. The New York Times characterizes Donald Trump’s attitudes toward women as “debasing” and “degrading” in a lengthy investigatory article this week. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee shoots back that the Old Gray Lady’s favored candidate’s husband stands accused of raping an older, graying lady back when […]
