The Leviathan Roars: Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus Fight Back

 

The Democrats expected to win in November. Their whole world was built around that reality. That is true most of all within the administrative state. Besides Hillary Clinton, the folks that populate the bureaucracy have been most stunned by Donald Trump’s win. Democrats are slow walking the confirmation hearings purposefully. The various arms of the government […]

Why Most Patients Say ‘Hell, No’ to Obamacare

 

A professor and student at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health recently argued Republicans in Congress are trying to send health care to hell in a handbasket by repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act (ACA). “It’s the Republican Party, standing alone, who wants America to return to the medical underwriting circle of […]

Ladies Night at the Theater

 

The power of prayer proves irresistible, if led by a formidable military chaplain like our nation’s first lady. So what are the Dems going to do now? Call for a boycott of the Lord’s Prayer? No mean sinners ourselves, we keep them in our prayers as they proceed on their ceaseless rounds of mad resistance. […]

Chicago Honors Terrorist After Dishonoring Trump

 

Chicago aldermen honored FALN (Armed Forces of National Liberation) terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera by naming a section of roadway after him. If only Leopold and Loeb, Al Capone, and John Wayne Gacy cloaked their crimes in a cause, then they, too, might now enjoy Second City street-sign salutes. “He was a suspect of FALN bombings starting […]

Milo’s Republicans: Hang ’em High!

 

You’d think otherwise, but apparently Milo has few friends in Helena, the capital city of Montana, where Democrats abound and the Helena City Commission is aggressively pro-LGBT. So pro that on January 9 of this year it removed gender restrictions in public accommodations where people “ordinarily appear in the nude.” We can thank Commissioner Robert […]

Eight Years of the Silent Treatment

 

Just so we’re clear: Eight years of rising anti-Semitism on college campuses and abroad. Eight years of French Jews too scared to wear their kipot (yarmulkes) on the streets and observe their religion openly. Eight years of Jews fleeing France for Israel, at a record-setting pace. Daily stabbings of Jews, including American Jews, a kosher […]

Democrats: More Radical, Less Chic

 

At the 1984 Republican convention, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Reagan’s ambassador to the United Nations, called his liberal critics “San Francisco Democrats.” That was taken as an insult then, but now Democrats would probably see it as a compliment. Today’s Democratic political strategists think more like Jan Morris, the transgender writer, than Dick Morris. They could not […]

Coming to Terms With Two Terms

 

Darn it, I wish I could remember the name of this short story by the late Noble Prize winner, Shmuel Yosef Agnon. It goes like this. The Jews in a small Eastern European village (shtetl), circa 1900, have never seen a convert to Judaism. In those days of hardship for Jews, they were not attracting many new […]

New Identity for a Master of Identity Politics

 

Sacramento The most entertaining local news story this week was a puff piece in the Sacramento Bee about one of California’s most-powerful politicians, Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles. De León is of interest to readers outside this state in that he is setting himself up to play a high-profile role combating […]

 The Limits of Hasbara

 

As the UN Security Council once more turns to its obsession with bashing Israel, the Israelis unveil their newest medical miracle, the use of sound frequencies to control the debilitating effects of Parkinson’s disease. The recently appointed head of Hamas, Yahya Sinwar, had his life saved from a brain tumor in an Israeli hospital. To […]
