Trump Derangement Syndrome

  Democrats are turning the confirmation hearings for Judge Kavanaugh into a circus.

David Horowitz Schools Jonah Goldberg: #NeverTrump as Moral Cowardice

After a Twitter quarrel that made headlines, David Horowitz decided to make his case against the #NeverTrump crowd at greater length: The posture of these NeverTrumpers is transparently self-serving.

‘Cohen! Cohen! Cohen!’

Continuing to watch CNN (so you don’t have to), they have now switched from “Russia! Russia! Russia!” to “Cohen! Cohen! Cohen!” This reflects the headline today in the New York Times: Michael Cohen Secretly Taped Trump Discussing Payment to Playboy Model Now, the ordinary non-CNN viewer may ask, “So what?” Probably the not-obsessed-with-politics-24/7 person has […]

‘Russia! Russia! Russia!’

  Up this morning at 6 a.m., I turned the TV to CNN and watched 15 minutes of “Russia! Russia! Russia!” Then I changed the channel to MNSBC, and watched another two hours of “Russia! Russia! Russia!” At this moment (8:23 a.m. ET, as I write this sentence), David Axelrod is being interviewed on CNN […]
