The Strange Career of Eric Boehlert

  Over the weekend, Breitbart News editor Alex Marlowe gave a speech at a Turning Point USA conference in which he invoked the memory of the late Andrew Breitbart. Coincidentally, I happened to be present at the 2007 Young America’s Foundation conference where Andrew first met Alex, who was then a student at UC-Berkeley, but […]

Yes, Operation Crossfire Hurricane Was Wrong and Corrupt From the Start

The pretext the FBI used to spied on the Trump campaign was fraudulent — that’s the bottom line of the report Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz delivered this week. Among other things, the IG’s report vindicated Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, who in February 2018 issued a memo detailing the many abuses involved in the […]

FBI Probes Belgian Terrorist Threat

  As I’ve previously explained, Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs first alerted America to the danger of Belgian extremists, and whenever The Flemish Menace™ makes another terrorist attack, it’s important to give Charles credit. Consider the latest news from Pensacola: The F.B.I. was investigating but did not confirm a report that the Saudi trainee […]

Two pieces recently published in both outlets — one from […]

The Impeachment Carnival Is a Distraction From What Really Matters

  While the televised circus in the House Intelligence Committtee was consuming the attention of the national media, the real news was happening behind the scenes with the Horowitz report: Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has found evidence that an FBI lawyer manipulated a key investigative document related to the FBI’s secretive surveillance of […]

The Secret of Liberal ‘Success’

Readers will please excuse last week’s paucity of blog content, as I’ve gotten sucked into The Dreaded Research Vortex again, and at some point you have to commit to 48 hours’ worth of ideological spelunking in a 72-hour span. Add in a few hassles in so-called “real life,” including a trip to the Veteran’s Administration […]

How #StickToSports Became the New #LearnToCode — Deadspin Is Dead

  “There was a time, about ten years ago, when I could write like Grantland Rice. Not necessarily because I believed all that sporty bullshit, but because sportswriting was the only thing I could do that anybody was willing to pay for. And none of the people I wrote about seemed to give a hoot […]
