The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

He Was the Walrus, Goo Goo Ga Joob

  They are the egg men: President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he had fired national security adviser John Bolton after a string of disagreements over how the U.S. should handle North Korea, Afghanistan and Iran. Trump announced on Twitter that he had asked for Bolton’s resignation on Monday night, saying he had “disagreed strongly […]

‘Oikophobia’ and #NeverTrump: How Can We ‘Secure the Blessings of Liberty’?

  What has prompted our immigration crisis? Isn’t it the same sentiment that leads Democrats (and David French, but I repeat myself) to claim Ilhan Omar is a better American than anyone born here? “Oikophobia,” a hatred of one’s native country (and of one’s fellow citizens) is the most remarkable proof that our elite class […]

Is the ‘Baseless Rumor’ True? Why Don’t Journalists Do Some Actual Journalism?

  The question of whether Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota) married her brother is an interesting question and, earlier this year at CPAC, I covered a press conference by bloggers who said the answer is “yes.” The persistent accusations that her marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi was a fraud finally prompted the Minneapolis Star-Tribune to […]

Blunder or Genius?

  ?John Hinderaker has called President Trump’s Sunday morning tweet-storm “a blunder of epic proportions” — an “own-goal,” as they say in soccer — and maybe it is, but Steven Hayward points out: With a wedge opening up between the Democratic Party leadership and the noisy Four Freshmen reps . . . Trump has now forced […]

The Fake Ukrainian Ledger Angle: How the Media Colluded With the ‘Deep State’

  Look at the date on that New York Times story — how did it happen that, in August 2016, Ukraine’s “newly formed National Anti-Corruption Bureau” took an interest in Donald Trump’s campaign manager and these reporters had no trouble finding sources in Kiev telling them all about these “ledgers”? What that just a coincidence? […]

The Worst #MeToo Smear Yet

  Imagine you’re a famous billionaire real estate developer. Now imagine you’ve got nothing better to do than to hang around department stores, raping magazine columnists in dressing rooms: President Donald Trump strongly denounced an allegation of sexual assault from author E. Jean Carroll on Friday, saying that he never met the woman in his […]

Trump Launches Re-Election Campaign With Monster Rally in Orlando

  This guy is a political genius. A week ahead of the first televised Democrat debates, he stages a gigantic rally in a 20,000-seat Florida arena, with people lining up two days in advance. By doing this, on the four-year anniversary of his June 2015 escalator ride, Trump visibly demonstrates his continued popularity at a […]

Trump Trolls His Media Enemies

  Today, while liberal pundits were going wall-to-wall on the cable-news panels denouncing Trump as an obstructor of justice, our Commander-in-Chief flew to Florida and played golf with Rush Limbaugh. That’s a brilliant move. Nothing enrages liberals more than to see conservatives having fun, which is why I try to be ostentatiously happy. Thursday morning, […]
