The Ben Sasse Hannity Attack

 

Nebraska’s Republican Senator Ben Sasse has a new book out. The book, is titled Them: Why We Hate Each Other — and How to Heal. I should note at the beginning that the Senator has a cordial relationship with the Spectator’s Editor in Chief, R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. So my dissent here on the Senator’s […]

‘Not In Vein’: America’s Terrifying Drug Problem Documentary

 

It is without doubt one of the most powerful documentary films out there. The subject: “The drugs your kids don’t know they’re taking — a documentary about open borders and the cartels crossing them to kill our kids.” Not in Vein, co-produced by the Dark Wire company’s Lynda McLaughlin (Sean Hannity’s radio producer) and investigative […]

The Liberal Privilege of Alexis Grenell

 

Senator Susan Collins of Maine. Rapper Kanye West. Two more different individuals would be hard to imagine. But they have something very important in common. Both are the targets of Liberal Privilege. Of which more in a moment. Five years ago, in this space, I wrote about the Washington Post and the Doctrine of Liberal Privilege. The Post had […]

Bravo, Judge Kavanaugh — And Lindsey Graham

 

Enough is enough. But let’s start with another riveting moment in American history. This one. The scene: the 1954 Army-McCarthy hearings, infamous on the Left for Senator Joseph McCarthy’s search for Communists in government, had reached a peak of tension. Joseph Welch, a Boston attorney who was representing the United States Army, the latter of […]

Corruption in the Senate Confirmation Process

 

What’s happening to Judge Brett Kavanaugh — who, for the record, I do not know — recalls the confirmation battle over now-Third Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge Brooks Smith in 2001-2002. And as I discovered, the confirmation process itself has been corrupted by Senate Democrats and their special interest allies. As a young Reagan […]

Cory Booker Stunner: 17-Year Olds Too Immature to Be Held Accountable for Actions

 

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker has a very interesting view of Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged actions. You might even call this a “Spartacus” moment for the Senator, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. As the world knows, Judge Kavanaugh, 17 years old at the time, is being accused of assaulting a 15-year-old Christine Blasey (now […]

Dear Anonymous: In The Name Of God, Go!

 

The President has no idea what he’s doing. “He displayed little knowledge or even curiosity about” international affairs. He “tuned out” when being briefed. His attention flagged in meetings, causing him to doodle. When it came to the deadly serious business of nuclear weapons he never understood what “this throw weight business was all about.” […]

Unmasked: America’s Real Fascists

 

They come in all different disguises. * Protesters disrupting the Mexican restaurant meal of a Cabinet Secretary, forcing her to leave. * The owner of an innocent-sounding “Red Hen” restaurant in Lexington, Virginia boasting that she refused to serve the presidential press secretary Sarah Sanders and asked her to leave. Sanders quite politely did. Now […]

No, Rob Rogers: The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Isn’t Racist

 

I don’t know Rob Rogers, the just-fired cartoonist for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. As a Pennsylvanian I do know something about the paper. As a resident of Central Pennsylvania, these days I am a reader of Penn Live, the online version of the Harrisburg Patriot-News. But in the long ago and far away, as a campaign […]

De Niro and Trudeau Campaign for Trump

 

Who’d a thunk? Actor Robert De Niro and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have teamed up to re-elect President Trump. As if working in concert, the duo made their initial contributions to the Trump campaign within hours of each other over the past weekend. Trudeau went first. Long before the G7 summit, Trudeau was creating […]
