Down They Come: Mitch Landrieu’s Revenge

 

As he nears the end of his two terms as the Big Easy’s mayor, the truth about Mitch Landrieu is he has a staggeringly meager legacy. This is true of most politicians. It’s particularly true of most urban Democrat politicians, and even more particularly true of that sub-genre since the Democrats have mastered the art […]

Inquisitions and Tribunals on America’s Campuses

 

Young women on college campuses have reasons to be fearful. The sheltering protections of housemothers and parietals are long gone. Unisex dorms and bathrooms do not raise eyebrows. Time-honored patterns of courtship and chivalry have gone up in smoke, leaving women empowered but vulnerable. Young men who are louts can and do scheme to obtain […]

Jeb! and the Fish

 

Looking at the headline to this column, you might have thought it was about a new rock band. (Not to worry, I’ll never write about rock — it gives me a rash.) But, no. I just want TAS readers to be aware that the sports press is reporting that Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has agreed in […]

American Whiskey Trail Tour, Day 3

Patent Trolls Don’t Care About the Law

 

Defense of today’s patent system can be a difficult job. At its best, the system can encourage innovation, protect the sacred rights of inventors, and do it highly effectively. At its worst, it falls prey to loopholes and day-to-day issues that make it fertile ground for abuse and negligence. Not to mention, it arguably is […]

Why Trump Won Wisconsin

 

There are four reasons why Hillary lost Wisconsin: she didn’t show up, Russ Feingold pulled her numbers down, the Republican Party was strong, and grassroots conservatives like Dan Feyen never gave up.

The Papal Propagandist for Islam Heads to Egypt

 

As the prototypical progressive Jesuit, Pope Francis prides himself on his “ecumenism.” He oozes enthusiasm for every religion except his own. At the top of his list of favorite religions is the Church’s fiercest adversary — Islam. He often sounds more like a spokesman for CAIR than a Catholic pope. After jihadists cut off the head […]
