The Reflexive Racism of the American Left

 

“Treat the Negro as a citizen and a voter — as he is, and must remain — and soon parties will be divided, not on the color line, but on principle.” So wrote President Ulysses S. Grant in a message to Congress in 1875. As Grant biographer Ron Chernow points out in his recent book, […]

They Helped Let Trump Be Trump

 

A political book can’t get much better than this. Whatever else divides Americans, surely the vast majority agree that the 2016 election was one of the most riveting in a very long time — if ever in American history.

Franklin and Marshall College and Free Speech

 

Note: In lieu of my usual column, here is the text of a speech I gave at my alma mater, Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, this past Monday.

Will the House and Senate Condemn Bill and Hillary Clinton?

 

So. Be careful what you wish for. I have no idea what went on with Roy Moore. And the demands increase from Republicans in Washington for him to get out of the Alabama Senate race. Now, Texas Senator Ted Cruz has withdrawn his support for Moore, as has Utah’s Senator Mike Lee. McCains and Flakes they are […]

Good heavens. The defeat of Ed Gillespie has Democrats and the liberal media exulting over a supposed rebuke to President Trump. Crowed the New York Times: FAIRFAX, Va. — Voters delivered their first forceful rebuke of President Trump and his party on Tuesday night, with Democrats exploiting Mr. Trump’s deep unpopularity to capture the governorships in […]

My Real Time With Bill Maher

 

Bill Maher is no conservative. He can’t abide Donald Trump. He can’t abide even more the reality of President Donald Trump. And safe to say, director Rob Reiner is there in spades. Christina Bellantoni? She’s the Assistant Managing Editor for Politics at the decidedly left-leaning and Trump-unfriendly Los Angeles Times. Add MSNBC military analyst Colonel […]
