I Feel for Melania Trump

 

I feel for Melania Trump. She was poised and beautiful in delivering her Monday night speech in support of her husband’s presidential aspirations. And then her Biden moment — it was found out, as it inevitably would have been — that part of her speech was taken, nearly verbatim, from a 2008 speech given by […]

Comey’s Carelessness With Common Sense

 

As I watch FBI Director James Comey respond to members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, even as I attempt to correct for my fear and loathing of Hillary Rodham Clinton, the “nothing to see here” approach of the Democratic members of the committee is shocking. Or at least it would be shocking […]

Declarations of Independence

 

A personal note: On Thursday morning, I had the opportunity to interview Delaney Henderson, a remarkable and courageous young woman who recently made national headlines with an open letter to the still-anonymous Stanford rape victim. The letter was informed by Delaney having suffered through a similar experience when she was 16 years old. It was […]

Trump Is Wrong

 

My good friend Jeff Lord has in recent days been valiantly trying to justify Donald Trump’s verbal assault — somewhat walked back on Tuesday after pressure from RNC Chairman Reince Priebus — on Gonzalo Curiel, the judge in the Trump University fraud case. One need not have an opinion on the merits of the case […]

Romney Results Bode Poorly for Trump

 

Could even a corrupt Hillary win on “cares about people like me”? For one primary reason, Mitt Romney was, in the 2012 presidential election, the worst possible choice out of the several most credible Republican hopefuls to challenge President Barack Obama’s re-election: Obamacare should have been the defining issue of that campaign but Romney was singularly […]

Negotiating With Myself

 

Is this the kind of back and forth many a voter is having these days? Perhaps I’m in need of some medication, but it seems that nearly every day of this political season I hear these dueling voices in my head: Anti-Trump: I just don’t see how I can, in good conscience, vote for Donald Trump. […]

Who’s To Blame For Donald Trump? It’s Not On Me

 

Blame yourself. I’m voting libertarian. Before anything else, I’d like to congratulate my American Spectator colleague Jeff Lord for grasping, sooner and more comprehensively than any other thoughtful pundit I know, the viability and eventual popularity of Donald Trump in the Republican nominating process. And I congratulate Mr. Trump for accomplishing something that few Americans thought […]

Charles Koch: The Most Important Interview Of The Political Year

 

Charles Koch’s misunderstood comments about Hillary Clinton was the least of it. When ABC News’ Jonathan Karl sat down with the 80-year-old billionaire Charles Koch, the elder half of the hated-by-the-left Koch brothers, he probably didn’t expect to generate the most important political interview of this campaign season. Indeed, he probably doesn’t even know that […]

The Most Important Interview of the Political Year

 

When ABC News’ Jonathan Karl sat down with the 80-year-old billionaire Charles Koch, the elder half of the hated-by-the-left Koch brothers, he probably didn’t expect to generate the most important political interview of this campaign season. Indeed, he probably doesn’t even know that he did. The “mainstream media” was immediately all a twitter, intentionally misconstruing […]
