Special Counsel Reaches Down Russian Rabbit Holes

 

Who investigates the investigators? Bloomberg reports that special counsel Robert Mueller expanded his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election to include “examining a broad range of transactions involving [Donald] Trump’s businesses as well as his associates.” The transactions not only involve “associates” but, in some cases, date back a decade. The deals […]

Harvard Goes Full Dean Wormer in Banning Frats

 

A private school that admits five percent of its applicants seeks to ban private clubs because of their exclusivity. You can tell a Harvard man, but you can’t tell him he’s a hypocrite. The Committee on the Unrecognized Single-Gender Social Organizations, a clique that excluded most Harvard faculty members, recommends that the institution forbid students […]

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

 

We hate our helpers for reminding us of feelings of helplessness. Evidence of this comes from Lenox, Massachusetts, where students seek to erase evidence that wealthy patrons made their educations possible. The local high school boasts a unique nickname: the “Millionaires.” The 99 percenters in the 99-percent Caucasian community desire something less politically incorrect (“Redskins” […]

Bernie Sanders, Not Donald Trump, Faces FBI Investigation

 

Donald Trump, alone among the three presidential candidates enjoying a chance last summer to secure the nomination of a major party, did not find himself under FBI investigation in the year that followed. One gleans the opposite impression from news reports. Senator Bernie Sanders, like Hillary Clinton before him, faces, along with his wife, an […]

Remain Calm Democrats, All Is Well

 

An Animal House, all-is-well quality colored Nancy Pelosi’s Thursday press-conference postmortem of her party’s Tuesday defeat in Georgia. “We reduced by 20 points what the advantage had been in that district for the Republicans,” the minority leader, imagining Democrats playing horseshoes or hand grenades, declared. “This is good news for us.” If losing a race […]

Democrats Blame the Victim

 

Leading Republicans graciously, and rightly, let Democrats off the hook for one of their party’s zealots opening fire on GOP congressmen on Wednesday. Leading Democrats showed their appreciation by blaming the shooting on Republicans. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi ended the 24-hour era of good feelings on Thursday by slamming Republicans as “sanctimonious” in their […]

Comey Is Not Trump’s Homie

 

James Comey put the bureau in bureaucrat at Thursday’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearings. We think of FBI agents as courageous. Comey came across as cowardly, a word he used to describe his dealings with the president. Perhaps it now takes a bureaucrat to attain the highest of heights in the bureau. Comey faulted former attorney […]

Sgt. Pepper @ 50

 

It was 70 years ago today that Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play. The Beatles released Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band a half-century ago today in the United States. Critic Kenneth Tynan once called the release “a decisive moment in the history of Western civilisation.” What struck many as hyperbole way back when […]

Stolen Valor: The Fake History From a Real Historian That Fooled Presidents and Publishers

 

“Thank you for providing documentation in support of your claim of having received a Purple Heart Medal,” the Veterans Administration informed an ailing William Manchester three years prior to the prolific author’s death that provided the sad coda to 2004’s Memorial Day Weekend. “Unfortunately, the documentation you provided is not sufficient for us to make […]

For the Russians Before They Were Against the Russians

 

Twenty-nine years ago, Bernie Sanders spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union. Now he sounds like a Martin Dies Democrat. “President Trump, in a reckless and dangerous manner, has revealed highly classified information to the Russians at a meeting in the Oval Office,” Vermont’s junior senator declared this week, “information that could expose extremely important […]
