In These Dark Times for Conservatism, We Count on Your Help
A scene from the 1980s TV show Spenser: For Hire keeps popping into my head these days. I tried in vain to find it on the Internet, so forgive me if my memory of it is considerably less than verbatim.

Virginia’s McAuliffe Is Wrong on Felons’ Voting

If It’s Trump vs. Hillary, Get Ready for the Gender Wars

Make Colleges Back Up Their Student Loans
Just as government-subsidized easy money fueled a real-estate bubble in the 1990s and 2000s, boosting house prices while promoting unwise borrowing and lending, today government-subsidized easy money is fueling an education bubble — boosting tuition rates and reducing students’ incentives to ...
Congress Should Follow the Red States’ Lead on Criminal-Justice Reform
Nearly ten years ago, in 2007, Texas faced $527 million in immediate prison-construction costs, and $2 billion in additional costs by 2012. Even for a large and wealthy state, the sticker shock was staggering.
Texas had seen its prison population rise dramatically. Between 1990 and 2010, ...

In Case of Trump Nomination, Break Glass

Trump Would Press the Agenda That Drove His Voters from the GOP
I wonder when the Trump backers will realize they’ve been had.
The 2016 GOP campaign has been overwhelmed by Donald Trump’s celebrity persona, by the can’t-take-your-eyes-off-it appearances where he might say or do anything — and “anything” includes expletives, ...
U.K. Considering Regulating Ads to Make Sure the Women In Them Aren’t Too Hot

According to a release published by the watchdog ...
The GOP Has Been Bad. But Not as Bad as You Think
Republicans, I’m told, were elected to Congress by the people, and yet they’ve done absolutely nothing. This indictment has now mutated into “Republicans gave President Obama everything he wanted,” i.e., the GOP and Obama were basically colluding ...
Anti-Trump Protesters, Not Trump, Were the Biggest Disgrace at His California Rally Last Night
What happened at the Trump rallies in Orange County, Calif., last night was a disgrace, but for once, it was not primarily a disgrace of Donald Trump’s.

Obama Suffocates Business Investment and Growth
GDP for the first quarter of 2016 came in at a paltry one-half of 1 percent. That sorry showing follows growth of 1.4 percent and 2 percent in the previous two quarters. If such a thing is possible, the already anemic economy is actually ...
A longtime Republican conservative e-mailed me after Trump’s Tuesday-night romp through the “Acela corridor”: “Is the GOP now the anti-trade, anti-immigrant party?”
I don’t think so, but take no comfort in the reason — Republicans haven’t signed on ...
Boehner's Unreasonable Attack on Cruz
We get it. John Boehner doesn’t like Ted Cruz. In a witless cheap shot, Boehner called him “Lucifer in the flesh” at an event at Stanford University. Boehner’s attitude is widespread among Republican insiders who are foolishly allowing ...
Religious Liberty: The Necessary Fight
In more than two decades spent litigating to preserve religious liberty in this country, one thing has become abundantly clear to me — millions of Christians don’t want this fight. It’s not that they’re reluctant warriors; they’re ...

Five Reasons Why Virginia Senator Tim Kaine Will Win Hillary’s Veepstakes

The e-mail, entitled “Racism at Mizzou,” said that the logo closely resembled ...
What Trump’s Big Victory and Cruz’s Big Announcement Mean
First and foremost, as I predicted last week, Trump had a great night on Tuesday. From a delegate perspective, his six “blue wall” Democratic state wins were not a game-changer. He was expected to take almost all of the delegates ...
Does Trump Know What His Position on Obama’s Iran Deal Is?
In Wednesday’s foreign-policy speech, Donald Trump accurately described President Obama’s Iran deal, the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as “disastrous.” But his understanding of why this is the case is elusive — formed through his deal-maker prism, ...

In Tennessee, a Federal Judge Disenfranchises Pro-Life Voters
No one should ever doubt the Left’s commitment to abortion. For the sake of preserving the right to kill an unborn child, the Left will sacrifice democracy and even reason itself. Pro-life lawyers have a term for liberal judges’ ...
Trump’s ‘Foreign Policy’: Incoherent and Shallow
Donald Trump complained today that the United States has “lacked a coherent foreign policy” since the end of the Cold War. His vow that a Trump administration would impose coherence is about as credible as his vow to make Mexico ...

On April 10, John Kerry became the highest-ranking U.S. official ever to visit the site where the atomic bomb that ended World War Two was dropped. The talk is now that Barack Obama might do the same thing during his ...
Ending Welfare as We Know It
Suppose there was a way to abolish most of the edifice of the modern welfare state, virtually eliminating the bureaucracy that supports it, and still lift people out of poverty. Shouldn’t we jump at it? Maybe. Maybe not.
The dynamism and opportunities on offer in America’s economy are shadowed, unfortunately, by a surprising lack of social mobility at the lower rungs of the income ladder. Because of persistent barriers to social mobility, often the perverse result of ...
America First: Immigration and Nationalism Unite Donald Trump’s Coalition
It is tempting, if disheartening, to believe that Donald Trump has irrevocably changed the GOP for the worse, imperiling conservatism’s hold on the party. But he hasn’t. The same dynamics and fissures that existed prior to this cycle ...

The Indiana governor may not have been abducted, but he’s certainly missing in action on the central question facing the Republican party: Are you with Trump, or against ...
Prince Was an Idol, Not a Hero
Prince died last week, and America overreacted. No, I’m not diminishing Prince’s talent. He was one of pop music’s most gifted songwriters and musicians. As millions shared his more memorable performances, I realized I’d forgotten what ...
University Cop: Drawings of Penises Incite ‘Hate’ Like a ‘Swastika or the N-Word,’ Should Be Censored

Obamacare’s Taxpayer-Subsidized Failure
Here’s some bad news for the insurance industry: Unexpectedly generous corporate subsidies didn’t save companies selling Obamacare policies from bleeding red ink.
The worse news: Those subsidies are set to expire in 2017, meaning that insurers will have to ...
The Criminal Constituency
Terry McAuliffe was a Clinton henchman before he was governor of Virginia. He would be a Clinton henchman afterward, too, which means that he must be one during his governorship, to which end he has ordered — without legal authority — the ...
Ethnicity Still Matters in the Politics of 2016
Ethnicity still matters. That’s one lesson I draw from the results so far of this year’s Republican and Democratic primaries and caucuses.
We’re encouraged to believe ethnicity doesn’t matter much anymore; only race does. This is ...
