Stephen Miller Gets the Los Angeles Times Treatment

 

Whenever the Los Angeles Times wants to defame a conservative but can’t find direct evidence to do so, it falls back on the “some critics say” formulation of media bias. Sure enough that craven device appears in its story on Trump adviser Stephen Miller’s high school days in Santa Monica: “Some [students] called him racist.” […]

Paul Krugman and the Sunshine Patriots of the Left

 

“These are the times that try men’s souls,” wrote founding father Thomas Paine. “The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.” Imagine what Paine would have written about politicians […]

New Confirmation Hillary Delivered Secrets to America’s Enemies

 

As the BuzzFeed debacle illustrates, the media devotes itself not to real threats to American security but phantom ones. While the media was obsessing over the Kremlin’s non-existent “compromising information” on Trump, it ignored new confirmation from the FBI that Hillary delivered state secrets to America’s enemies. What is in the hands of Kremlin officials […]

Trump Exposes a Flailing Ruling Class

 

At today’s press conference, Trump once again showed himself to be the great disruptor, shattering the carefully constructed illusions of a ruling class that pretends to be pure but is utterly political. To sustain those illusions, the ruling class has in the past hectored Republican presidents into respecting this or that “convention” designed to shield […]

The Conquering Loser

 

In George Washington’s 1796 farewell address, he argued that of “all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.” In Barack Obama’s farewell address, he congratulated himself for undermining them. He identified America’s progress in the diminution of its historic religion and morality and urged Americans to embrace […]

Trump Derangement Syndrome at the Golden Globes

 

Meryl Streep prefaced her attack on Donald Trump at the Golden Globes by saying that she had lost her voice. She has had a rough few days of partying since Obama’s blow-out bash at the White House last Friday night, to which she and other stars had been invited. Given a lifetime achievement award for acting on Sunday night, she devoted […]

The Last Gasps of the Legacy Media

 

In the era of Trump, the liberal media is reeling under the fear of faded privileges. Chief among them is the practice of passing off dominant and fashionable opinions as “facts” on front pages. Reporters, itching to expose Trump, have never been more inclined to blend fact and opinion. It is anger at the thought of […]

The Last Daze of Conservative Democrats

 

In 2004, after the open secularism of John Kerry sunk his chances of defeating George W. Bush, it became briefly popular in Democratic circles to talk about renewed outreach to “values voters.” Bill Clinton had advised Kerry to fake up opposition to gay marriage in Ohio, but Kerry rejected his counsel, saying he didn’t want […]

The Audacity of Denial

 

“Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan,” said John F. Kennedy. The self-serving behavior of Democratic pols since Hillary’s loss adds credence to that observation. Look at how they eagerly explain the defeat away as a failure peculiar to Hillary. She “didn’t know why” she was running, says Joe Biden. They console […]

The Desperate Revisionism of the Left

 

In possession of government power, liberals pompously invoke established customs. But once out of power, they immediately start breaking them. No sooner had they lost the White House than they returned to the primitive and infantile stance of 1960s-style radicals. Liberalism is willfulness writ large. Its relationship to law and custom is determined not by […]
