Rob Portman’s Crusade against Opioid Addiction
Nearly 30,000 Americans died of opioid overdoses in 2014, deaths caused by overuse of either licit prescription painkillers or illicit heroin. Addiction to these drugs has skyrocketed over the past decade and a half, to the point where about 120 Americans die of ...
General Mattis Is a Great Man — and a Good One
Donald Trump has made a number of promising picks for his cabinet, but surely none better than his selection of my Hoover Institution colleague General James Mattis as secretary of defense. His record shows clearly that he’s a great ...
Senator Sessions: Friend of Underprivileged Minorities
As the media continue their ideologically driven campaign against President-elect Trump (thinly disguised as journalism), a target of choice has been the men and women selected for Cabinet posts. Among these is Senator Jeff Sessions, Trump’s choice for attorney ...
The Economic Stupidity of the Carrier Bailout
One particularly tough and indigestible nugget of talk-radio stupidity afflicting the guts of conservatism is the idea that there is some sort of fundamental difference between bribing a business with tax cuts and bribing it with a wheelbarrow full of ...
SCOTUS Debates Releasing Criminal Aliens
The Supreme Court on Wednesday grappled with the complex question of how to ensure that criminal aliens, having served their prison sentences and been detained in immigration custody while their removal proceedings take place, do not languish for years without ...
The curtain finally fell on one of Earth’s most vicious tormentors of gay people. The seemingly immortal Cuban dictator Fidel Castro died November 25 at age 90.
Castro operated a giant Alcatraz from 1959 to 2008 before dynastically handing the jailhouse keys to ...
No, the Swamp Won’t Be Drained
It wasn’t quite “build the wall” or “lock her up,” but “drain the swamp” was a signature Donald Trump slogan.
It evoked visions of pinstripe-suit-wearing influence peddlers getting pulled from their Georgetown cocktail parties en masse and tossed into ...
Would Another Republican Have Defeated Hillary Clinton?
Would any Republican besides Donald Trump have beaten Hillary Clinton and been elected the 45th president? It’s an interesting question, not susceptible to a definitive answer but with consequences for politics going forward.
Last fall, I shared the widespread ...
The Winners and Losers of the Carrier Deal
No one ever doubted Donald Trump’s talent for theater, a gift he is exercising with some flair in the matter of the Carrier air-conditioner company’s facilities in Indiana.
Carrier had planned to move a furnace operation to Mexico ...
Obama’s Contempt for the White Working Class Is as Strong as Ever
As his presidency comes to a close, it’s clear that Barack Obama still finds Americans who disagree with him an illogical and inscrutable species, so inherently backward that there’s no point in making much effort to understand them.
School Bans Students from Raising Their Hands to Answer Questions
Samworth Church Academy, a high school in Nottinghamshire in the U.K., has banned its students from raising their hands to answer questions because it is unfair to students who do not raise their hands.
In a letter explaining the ...
Welcome to the Party of Trump
I stirred up some controversy last week when I told a conference of several dozen House Republicans that the GOP is now officially a Trump working-class party. For better or worse, I said at the gathering inside the Capitol dome, ...
Bring Back That ‘Do-Nothing Republican Congress’
The president of Amherst College, Biddy Martin, alerted the community at once to the traumas set off by the outcome of the presidential election: She reported on letters from students who asked her to cancel classes for the next day. “...
Editor’s Note: In a recent issue of National Review, we published a piece by Jay Nordlinger about art and identity politics. (About music and such politics in particular.) Today, Mr. Nordlinger writes a version of this piece in his ...
Boondoggles: The Transaction Costs of Democracy
History has a sly sense of humor. It caused an epiphany regarding infrastructure projects — roads, harbors, airports, etc. — to occur on a bridge over Boston’s Charles River, hard by Harvard Yard, where rarely is heard a discouraging word about ...
Two Cheers for the Status Quo
The American political discourse is promiscuous with its superlatives: Barack Obama is, we are assured, the most radical president ever, unless that’s Donald Trump; these Republicans or these Democrats are the worst they’ve ever been; this is the ...
Can Congress Force an End to ‘Sanctuary City’ Policies?
Nearly a year and a half ago, California resident Kate Steinle was murdered in San Francisco by a criminal illegal alien who had been deported from the U.S. five times. Today, San Francisco remains a so-called sanctuary city, where ...
The Ohio State Terrorist Saw Himself as a Victim of Islamophobia
On August 25, 2016, the Lantern, the student newspaper for Ohio State University, published an interview with a young Somali Muslim refugee, Abdul Razak Ali Artan. “I just transferred from Columbus State,” he told the Lantern. “I wanted to pray in the ...
The Golden Age of Mass Delusion
Texas has passed a regulation requiring that human corpses be disposed of in accordance with the state’s regulation for the disposal of human corpses. That this exercise in tautology was necessary — and that it is controversial — is a reminder ...
Israel is engulfed in flames.
In the last week, over 1,000 homes have been damaged or destroyed nationwide, 60,000 residents have been evacuated, over 200 people have suffered injuries, and more than 30,000 acres have burned countrywide in a series of fires near highly ...
This Is What a Trump Civil-Rights Agenda Should Look Like
Whether they supported President-elect Trump or not, conservatives (minus some libertarians) will generally applaud the nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General.
Further, it seems likely he will be confirmed by his colleagues, after Democrats go through the inside-the-Beltway ...
Justin Trudeau’s Disgusting Tribute to Fidel Castro
Wasn’t one vapid pretty boy named Justin from Canada enough?
At least Justin Bieber is eye candy without the heartburn. Justin Trudeau, on the other hand, is the twinkly-eyed boy toy who makes informed adults wanna hurl.
For more ...
Who Is Worse for Free Speech: Campus Snowflakes or Donald Trump?
No doubt, a lot of people voted for Donald Trump because they wanted to put a stop to the “safe space” culture that’s running rampant on college campuses across the country — I’m just not so sure he’s ...
Vicious Teenagers Have Run Cuba for 57 Years
I haven’t been in Cuba since January 1998, when John Paul II visited the island prison. And I have no intention of returning until the brothers Castro and their gang are sad memories. The recently deceased Maximum Leader, you see, ...
A Party of Teeth-Gnashers
After the Democratic equality-of-opportunity agenda was largely realized (Social Security, Medicare, overtime, a 40-hour work week, disability insurance, civil rights, etc.), the next-generation equality-of-result effort has largely failed.
What is left of Democratic ideology is identity politics and assorted dead-end ...
Conservatives and Populists: Finding Common Ground
In their recent exchange on the topic of populism, Utah senator Mike Lee and National Review’s own Andrew C. McCarthy both raise valuable points. Senator Lee holds out hope for what he terms a “principled populism,” in which conservatives ...
How Trump Can Fulfill Reagan’s Defense Vision
Growing terrorist attacks, accelerating nuclear-weapon/ballistic-missile threats, and atrophying U.S. military capabilities — President-elect Donald Trump faces a dangerous, complex world.
To get a sense of just how dangerous that world is, consider this: Rogue states and even terrorists have ...
Want a Better National Review Online?
Unless you watch the Hallmark Channel (or the History Channel when it airs loopy shows on pyramid-building ancient aliens), you probably don’t believe in magic. I don’t. But like Santa and the Great Pumpkin, I’m still hoping.
Will Donald Trump Do for U.S. Infrastructure What He Did for New York's Wollman Rink?
In May 1986, a 39-year-old Manhattan real-estate developer named Donald Trump promised to get Wollman Rink in Central Park up and running — something the city government, despite spending $13 million, had failed to do for six years. Trump delivered, ahead of time ...
The Ten Most Outrageous Reactions to Castro's Death
On Friday, Fidel Castro, the former Communist dictator of Cuba, passed away at the age of 90. The Castro regime exiled 1 million Cubans; it killed tens of thousands. Yet, as many public figures penned their thoughts on Castro’s death, they ...
Don’t Let Donald Trump Clintonize the GOP
Unless Donald Trump significantly changes course, conservatives should get ready for a wild, inconsistent, and exhausting four years. With the exception of short periods of quiet caused by desperate political necessity, the president-elect’s governing philosophy seems relatively simple: He ...
Midnight Regulations in Paradise
Like Rasputin, the push for a separate, race-based “native Hawaiian government” refuses to die. As I’ve now written about for almost a decade, it is the fondest dream of some politicians to institute a two-tiered system of law in ...
Can We Be Heroes and Saints?
‘Now that we’ll have a President who has said, ‘I don’t have heroes,’ I suppose we must all somehow step up & become heroes for one another,” writer Wendy Shalit tweeted the day after the election. The mother of ...
Understanding Trump’s America
I’m a late adopter of many things, including technology and TV shows. Only a few weeks ago, I started watching Shameless, a Showtime series that is eerily revealing in its account of Donald Trump’s America.
The show, which ...
Fidel Castro: The Death of a Tyrant
The headline over the Associated Press story read, “Cuba’s Fidel Castro, Who Defied U.S. for 50 Years, Dies at 90.” Actually, he defied it for closer to 60 years, in that his regime is still going. In any case, the headline ...
Fidel Castro and Dead Utopianism
With the end of Fidel Castro’s nasty life Friday night, we can hope, if not reasonably expect, to have seen the last of charismatic totalitarians worshiped by political pilgrims from open societies. Experience suggests there will always be tyranny ...
No, Conservatism Should Not Embrace Populism
Populism? No thanks.
I am not now, nor will I ever be, a populist. Evidently, that separates me from a growing number of commentators, including some conservatives, wistfully engaged in Washington’s latest fad: over-interpreting Donald Trump’s victory in ...
Progressives without Power
A very nice liberal broadcaster asked me earlier this week whether I am worried about the future of the Republican party.
There are 25 states in which the state legislatures and governorships are controlled by Republicans, and two states ...
Progressives Will Always Have Casablanca — Unfortunately
It’s more than coincidence that the Brad Pitt–Marion Cotillard World War II spy romance Allied starts out in Casablanca. The love story between Canadian airman Max Vatan (Pitt) and French resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) begins in French-occupied ...
The GOP’s Future Is as the Party of Industry
Donald Trump won the presidency in an upset victory largely because of his appeal to the white working class in a number of industrial states that have been reliably Democratic for years. His denunciations of Chinese mercantilism and U.S. ...
For Democrats, the Road Back
One of the more salutary outcomes of the recent election is that Democrats are finally beginning to question the wisdom of basing their fortunes on identity politics. Having counted on the allegiance of African Americans, Hispanics, gays, unmarried women, and ...
Conservatives Should Embrace Principled Populism
‘It is much more important to kill bad bills than to pass good ones,” Calvin Coolidge once said. With a unified federal government soon to be in Republican hands, however, maybe we can do a bit of both.
But how? ...
This is a football story with both political and legal implications.
It was fourth down in a National Football League game, and the punting team came onto the field. The other team went into their formation to defend against the ...
Throughout history, revolutionaries of all stripes have warped the meaning of words to subvert reality.
And now here we go again, with another effort — spearheaded by the media and universities — to use any linguistic means necessary to achieve political ends.
Be Thankful You Have Something to Grumble At

Betsy DeVos, the Right Choice for Education Secretary
Donald Trump has chosen conservative reformer Betsy DeVos to be his education secretary. A better choice would be hard to find.
First under George W. Bush and the No Child Left Behind Act, then under Barack Obama and a long ...
Stop Smearing Jeff Sessions
Has the Left learned nothing from this election? Does it not realize that Americans are increasingly immune to hysterical cries of racism, sexism, and homophobia? After crying wolf against a generation of conservative politicians, liberals have apparently decided that they ...
If You Need a Hotline to Handle Thanksgiving, Then You Actually Need to Get Over Yourself
A social-justice group, Showing Up for Racial Justice, has launched a hotline that people can call if they need help handling tough political discussions with their families on Thanksgiving.
“This Thanksgiving, SURJ is offering two ways to help support white ...
What Will Happen When Roe v. Wade Is Overturned?
President-elect Trump’s reconfirmation recently on 60 Minutes that he will nominate “pro-life judges” has sparked some unprecedented media focus on what will happen when Roe v. Wade is overturned. This focus is long overdue.
The notion of Supreme Court justices ...
Americans Have More to Be Thankful for than You’d Think
By any standard, 2016 has been a difficult year. Terrorism, crime, racial tensions, and the most divisive election in recent history have left Americans tired and stressed. Yet, as we head into this Thanksgiving season, we should recognize that, no matter ...
The Mattis appointment as defense secretary could prove to be Trump’s most inspired, even given the nightmarish mess brewing abroad. But the media blitz has overdone the idea that Jim “Mad Dog” Mattis is somehow a frenzied, “let me ...
Hack Journalism about an Unhacked Election
With the presidential-vote recount under way in Wisconsin, hopeful leftists would have us believe that the Russians, or some other unknown entity, hacked electronic voting machines in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. (Michigan doesn’t use electronic voting; it is being included ...
Jackie Reminds Us: Political Celebrities Once Had a Modicum of Self-Awareness

Books, ‘As Close to Immortality as the Written Word Can Expect’
Philip Terzian, the literary editor of The Weekly Standard since 2005, has become one of the deans of the book-reviewing trade. He is much admired for his ability to make taste and set trends by suggesting but rarely imposing his own ...
The Incoherence of Electoral College Opponents
Behind the recent clamor for the abolition of the Electoral College are two contradictory sentiments: that the system is antidemocratic and that it is too democratic.
Of course the real problem, from the Left’s point of view, is that ...
The Media Has Been Reporting Fake News about Castro and Cuba for Years
A panic is sweeping the land — or at least something like it has unnerved CNN, Vox, and other precincts of progressive sensibility. They are alarmed that millions of Americans are being misled by “fake news.”
As someone whose inbox has ...
Why One Trump Opponent Is Not Freaking Out
Well, for starters, allowing liberals to determine my level of anxiety — which would be full-blown, round-the-clock histrionics — over what’s nothing more than another election would be foolish. Until it’s not. The era of Trump hasn’t even started ...
Don’t Fall Prey to Bear Propaganda
It’s time for an open and frank national conversation about bear propaganda.
Having grown up in New York City, I had not been made aware of the problem until fairly late in life. This was remedied by my lovely ...
After a Mere 25 Years, the Triumph of the West Is Over
Twenty-five years ago — December 1991 — Communism died, the Cold War ended, and the Soviet Union disappeared. It was the largest breakup of an empire in modern history and not a shot was fired. It was an event of biblical proportions that ...
Buzzfeed Demands: ‘Are You Now or Have You Ever Been a Christian?’
It’s the question every social-justice warrior wants to ask. “Are you now or have you ever been a Christian?” Because if the answer is yes, then your response to the next question will determine whether you should enjoy the ...
If you were an inquisitive space alien who decided to drift down to visit America in 2016 — as a tour guide, I probably wouldn’t recommend this year in particular, as people are kind of crabby, and good-natured hijinks are at ...
Terrorists Are People, Too
There will come a time when our nation can fairly evaluate George W. Bush’s strategy and record in fighting terrorism. Perhaps that time can start now. A new book by James Mitchell, a man who questioned 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh ...
Red States and Blue States Are a Myth
On Election Night 2016, I found myself at BuzzFeed’s offices in New York City.
They had embarked on a bold live streaming show with the aim of mocking traditional network coverage and providing a fun, straight-to-the-point program of returns, tweets, ...
Beware the Law of Unintended Consequences
The mix of politics and culture is far too complex to be predictable. Even the best-laid political plans can lead to unintended consequences, both good and bad — what we sometimes call irony, nemesis, or karma.
Take the election of 2008, which ...
‘America First’ Should Not Mean Putting Allies Last
Despite his exuberance and unpredictability, Donald Trump stayed on message throughout his campaign. He repeated the simple but powerful message “Make America great again” and spoke of putting “America first” and won the election against most expectations. Developing winning policy ...
Before Hillary Clinton Lost, Scrutinizing Election Results Was ‘Unpatriotic’ and ‘Undemocratic’
When Hillary Clinton was expected to win the presidency, liberals called Donald Trump’s claims that the vote would be “rigged” and his refusal to promise he’d accept the results an assault on democracy itself. In the wake of ...
Trump: Ready to Lead in First Hundred Days
The post-electoral media buzz over the president-elect is surrealistic, in that it seems to reflect the almost universal inability of the U.S. national media to grasp the fact that no one is listening to them and no one cares ...
It’s Time for Honest Talk about Muslim Immigration
At 9:52 a.m. on Monday morning, a silver Honda jumped a curb at Ohio State University and plowed directly into a crowd of students, sending bodies flying through the air. As students rushed to help, a young Somali immigrant, Abdul ...

This Should Be Trump’s Top Trade Priority
During this spring’s Brexit campaign, President Obama threatened to make the United Kingdom wait at the “back of the queue” for any future trade deals with the United States if the British people made the “unthinkable” decision to leave ...
Fidel Castro’s Death Showcases the Useful Idiots Willing to Enable a Dictator
Fidel Castro died as he lived: to the sound of useful idiots making allowances for his crimes. (That’s not my term: It was Lenin who called liberal apologists for Communism “useful idiots.”)
The gold medal in the Useful Idiot ...
Giuliani’s Foreign Business Ties Shouldn’t Disqualify Him from State Department
As President-elect Donald J. Trump narrows his choices for secretary of state, he should ignore one absurd charge against a leading contender for that position. Rudolph W. Giuliani’s international business ties make him more, not less, eligible to be ...
‘There He Goes Again’ — Jimmy Carter Blames Israel One More Time
Jimmy Carter is 92 now, and it has been 36 years since his landslide defeat for reelection. But neither the passage of time nor the debilities of age slow him from making proposals that will do real harm to the State of ...
Fidel Castro’s Admirers: The Dunce, the Coward, and the Criminal
Since my first days at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, I have argued with a lot of people about a lot of things. But I don’t argue about Fidel Castro, who finally died at long last on Saturday. ...
The Manly Thing Trump Does That Drives the Media Crazy
The media is having a red-faced meltdown. No matter how hard they try, President-elect Donald Trump just won’t apologize early often enough.
They say he is supposed to apologize for any and every fringe nutcase who might support him — ...
How Donald Trump Could Fix Our Health-Care System While Cutting Our Taxes
If Donald Trump and the Republican Congress have a mandate to do anything, it is to repeal Obamacare. The law is already cratering. Sick enrollees, former president Bill Clinton laments, are seeing “their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in ...
Dems Have a Pelosi Problem
Barring some last-minute surge of support for Ohio congressman Tim Ryan, House Democrats appear set to once again elect Nancy Pelosi as their leader this week.
Considering the catastrophic collapse of the House Democratic caucus over the last six years, ...
Ten Reasons Left-Wingers Cut Trump Voters from Their Lives
Many Hillary Clinton voters have ceased communicating with friends, and even family members, who voted for Donald Trump. It is so common that the New York Times published a front-page article on the subject headlined “Political Divide Splits Relationships — and ...
Can Democrats Quit Identity Politics?
For the Democrats, no activity is immune from reflexive accusations of sexism and racism, not even soul-searching.
The initial postelection debate on the left has brought some tentative breaks with the party’s oppressive and self-limiting identity politics. And they ...
Cuba is a country with outlaw librarians.
A great deal has happened since Fidel Castro launched his first attack on the Cuban government of caudillo Fulgencio Batista in 1953. Castro was arrested after his failed assault on the Moncada Barracks, and ...
The Dictator and the Dissident
It’s a part of the Fidel Castro story Michael Moore and Sean Penn won’t tell, or don’t know. It’s a story you certainly didn’t hear from the media as they endlessly opined about Castro’s “...
Why Russia Isn’t Waiting to Finish Aleppo
When Russia’s offensive in Syria began last year, I argued that Putin’s strategy would focus on “securing a contiguous area of Assad-regime control in western Syria, reaching from the north to the south.” Just over a year later, ...
A Memo for Attorney General Jeff Sessions
President-elect Donald Trump and his attorney-general designate Jeff Sessions come to office seeking to restore public confidence in the fairness and impartiality of federal law enforcement. After eight years of Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, Americans have lost ...
Credulous Western Dupes and Castro
Mexico City — Fidel Castro was a remarkably lucky dictator. Unlike many — Romania’s Ceausescu and Libya’s Qaddafi come to mind — he wasn’t executed by his own people and instead died in bed at age 90. During the Cuban missile ...
An End of Identity Liberalism?
The New York Times, like Walt Whitman, contains multitudes and necessarily contradicts itself.
In the Sunday edition there is an intelligent essay by Mark Lilla titled “The End of Identity Liberalism.” In the Times magazine is an essay by Alexander ...
The Truth about Fidel and Raul
Two decades of “Castro-is-dead” rumors are finally at an end. And the race is on to see which world leader can most fulsomely praise Fidel Castro’s legacy, while delicately averting their eyes from his less savory characteristics. Two duly ...
A Trade Policy That Wouldn't Leave Low-Wage Workers Behind
President-elect Donald Trump has shown Republicans how to forge a new electoral college majority by energizing blue-collar voters. His victory, with its demands to restrict trade and immigration, also marks the end of free-market advocates’ control over the Republican party. ...
What’s Next for the Democratic Party?
In the last few days before November 8, the RealClearPolitcs average of generic-ballot polls had a generic Democrat favored over a generic Republican by about one percentage point. In the event, Republicans won the popular House vote — that is, the sum ...
The Election Excitement May Be Over, but the Federal-Debt Crisis Isn’t
One thing did not change on Tuesday, November 8 — our unsustainable and exploding national debt of nearly $20 trillion. While America was focused on an unconventional presidential-election season, the federal debt increased $587 billion in fiscal year 2016 alone. Last year, our federal government ...
‘Fake News’ Isn’t Just a Rightwing Problem
Following Donald Trump’s upset victory earlier this month, the media has suddenly grown deeply troubled about the proliferation of “fake” news — gossip-mongering and fabrication and “news” reports devoid of a factual basis. Naturally, this brings us to Vox.com.
Dear Media: Please Stop Normalizing the Alt-Right
Why does the March for Life, a rally that attracts tens of thousands of anti-abortion Americans to Washington, D.C., every year get less prominent media coverage than a fringe neo-Nazi gathering? Because institutional media and white nationalists have formed ...

The Arc of History Doesn’t Always Bend toward Justice
History is on our side. That’s a claim Barack Obama has made frequently, in his two successful campaigns for president and during his nearly eight years in office. It’s a claim that looks a little shakier this Thanksgiving ...
Self-Government in the Wilderness
The Mayflower had a harrowing two months crossing the Atlantic. Its mast splintered in rough water and two people died, as supplies dwindled and passengers grew sick. It arrived in the New World later than expected, on the cusp of ...
The pilgrims are a little complicated for us moderns. They were dissidents and nonconformists and in some sense civil libertarians, and at the same time they were fanatics who imposed a nearly absolutist conformity on their colony. They were too ...
Judge Halts Obama Administration's Overtime Rule in a Victory for States and Workers
With less than two months to go before President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, President Obama’s legacy took another blow this week — this one from Judge Amos Mazzant, who he appointed to the Eastern District of Texas. On Tuesday, Mazzant ...
Trump Should Let the Senate Kill the Paris Climate-Change Agreement

You Can Survive Thanksgiving without Help from the New York Times
It’s Thanksgiving week, which means we are once again being bombarded with pieces on “how to talk to your relatives about politics over turkey,” in a thoroughly depressing and bewildering tradition the country can do without.
It may shock ...
