Trump Is Beating the Media at Its Own Game

 

Once asked by an aide to respond to a letter to the editor from one of his critics, Vladimir Lenin refused, saying: “Why should we bother to reply to Kautsky? He would reply to us, and we would have to reply to his reply. There’s no end to that. It will be quite enough for […]

Who Will Hold the IRS Accountable?

 

In the bubble of Washington, pols strain at the gnat and swallow the camel. They chase after media-driven pseudo-scandals while letting real scandals linger. Take the scandal of the IRS’s harassment of non-profit groups during the Obama administration. Getting to the bottom of that scandal is far more important than any of the election-related wild […]

Leaky John Brennan

 

Out of hatred for McGovernite liberals, a Republican president in the 1970s broke the law. Now those aging radicals break the law out of hatred for a Republican president. Nested within intelligence agencies, they have fed a series of criminal leaks to a press corps that functions like an anti-Trump dirty tricks operation. Donald Trump […]

Carl Bernstein’s Son Calls First Lady a Hooker

 

The New York Times reporter who called Melania Trump a “hooker” turns out to be Carl Bernstein’s son, Jacob. He was reprimanded for this comment by his bosses, but it looks like his job is safe. After all, it is not like he called Sandra Fluke a prostitute. Besides, his father may have planted the […]

Morning Joe Orders Miller Lite

 

MSNBC’s Morning Joe is a window on the immaturity of the ruling class. It consists largely of pundits making faces and rolling their eyes, seconding each other’s sophomoric liberal talking points, and attitudinizing about the latest Trump “outrage.” The smugness of it all can’t be overstated. The conversation barely rises above the level of mean […]

Trump, the Perpetual Underdog

 

Even as they encircled Trump, pouring scorn on him from their commanding heights in the arts, academia, and media, the most entitled members of the elite cast Trump during the presidential campaign as a “bully.” But the claim fell flat. Most Americans didn’t see Trump in that light. They saw him more as an underdog […]

Al Franken and Saturday Night Liberalism

 

The episode of Saturday Night Live following Hillary Clinton’s defeat opened with a mournful piano recital, performed by teary-eyed cast member Kate McKinnon who sang Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” She punctuated the performance by turning solemnly to the camera and saying, “I’m not giving up, and neither should you.” What little humor that is left on […]

No Law But Liberalism

 

The conservative case for civil disobedience rests on an appeal to a God-given law higher than written law. But to what does liberalism’s case for it appeal? Not to a law higher than written law but to a drive lower than it, the willfulness of human beings, which moves the ground of civil disobedience into […]

Useful Idiots No More

 

“Tell him you are a Muslim, tell him you are a Muslim,” Nancy Pelosi instructed Congressman Andre Carson at an anti-Trump rally on Monday, moments after she had just introduced him as a “Muslim member of Congress.” She apparently felt that the crowd hadn’t sufficiently gotten the point. Pelosi normally rattles on about the dangers […]

Trump Fulfills Another Promise

 

On Tuesday night, Donald Trump invited the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s wife to his announcement of Neil Gorsuch as his nominee to replace Scalia. Her presence, along with her son, Fr. Paul Scalia, who serves in the diocese of Arlington, Virginia, conferred upon Gorsuch a kind of imprimatur as an originalist. Both Trump […]
