Sometimes, Heads Should Roll
Of course Yahoo News should fire Katie Couric. She committed an act of gross intellectual dishonesty — and if you don’t fire a journalist for dishonesty, what in hell do you fire one for? Bad manners?
Well, yes. More on ...
Austin Petersen for President
Is it possible to pinpoint when winning elections and supporting one’s principles became mutually exclusive enterprises for the GOP? Sometimes I think that’s been the de facto organizing principle of the Republican party for so long that we’...
Would Thomas More Have Voted for Donald Trump?
The basic facts are these. St. Thomas More, born in London in 1478, was a devout Catholic, and also one of the most incisive legal minds of his day. Upon entering the service of King Henry VIII, he made clear that ...

Gary Johnson Asks You to Google Him
Lansing, Mich. — Gary Johnson likes to talk about the day Ted Cruz quit the Republican presidential race. “My Google hits went up 5,000 percent,” says the former GOP governor of New Mexico, now a Libertarian candidate for president. He’s speaking ...
I once hoped Marco Rubio represented the future of the Republican party, and more important, American conservatism. Now, after his puerile behavior and increasingly vocal — if not slavish or unqualified — support for Donald Trump, that hope is dashed.
The Hiroshima Bombing Was Right and Necessary
Today, the president of the United States spoke at Hiroshima, Japan — the site of the first of two American atomic-bomb attacks on Imperial Japan — and served up a heaping helping of moral equivalence and maudlin sentimentality. To Obama, the real ...
If Clinton Implodes, Democrats May Turn to Biden and Warren

Conservatives in Crisis — American 2016 Edition

Clinton and Trump: The Moral Universe of Liars
As someone who believes that excessive partisanship and Balkanization are poisoning our politics, I have tried to view Hillary Clinton as something other than the ghoul she is portrayed as in conservative circles. No accusation against her is considered too ...
Yes, Hillary Was an Enabler
Donald Trump’s philosophy is never to use a scalpel when a meat ax is available, and so it is with his attack on the Clinton scandals of the 1990s.
And yet, in slamming Hillary as Bill’s “enabler” and ...
Does Obama Still Believe in the Arrow of History?
How do you distinguish a foreign-policy “idealist” from a “realist,” an optimist from a pessimist? Ask one question: Do you believe in the arrow of history? Or to put it another way, do you think history is cyclical or directional? ...
There’s little distance between X-Men: Apocalypse and the films of Chinese director Jia Zhangke. Although their audiences are different (juvenile thrill-seekers and art-movie devotees), the films appeal to the same grim taste for catastrophe. It is a symptom of ...

Dear Yahoo, Fire Katie Couric
The case is clear. Katie Couric, a person Yahoo employs to be the face of its news division, was caught in a grotesque deception. Then, when she was publicly exposed, rather than apologizing, she doubled down — defending the choice to ...
Prof Took Students on an 'EcoSexual Sextravaganza' Trip to Marry and Have Sex with the Ocean

Making Welfare Work Again

How Could a Trump Presidency Go Wrong? Let’s Count the Ways
In 2008, then-senator Barack Obama announced in his second autobiography, The Audacity of Hope, “I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.” Obama campaigned on supposed practicality and ad hoc politicking. ...
Why ‘Hillary Is Even Worse’ Doesn’t Cut It

A Four-Way Race for President Is Possible

Hating the Clintons Won’t Win the Election

High-Speed Rail Is a Fast Train to Fiscal Ruin, in California and Elsewhere

The Inaugural Address We Won't Hear, but Should
The mere possibility of a Donald Trump presidency — gold-plated faucets in the house first occupied by John and Abigail Adams — will perhaps have a salutary effect. It might demystify an office that has become now swollen with inappropriate powers and ...
Boris Johnson, Free Speech Champion of Erdogan Offensive-Poetry Contest
This is my favorite story in some time. And it’s not even a “narrative” — it really happened.

Judge Hanen Shows President Obama: We’re All Post-Constitutionalists Now

Trump, Clinton Tied in Polls: Were All the Wise Men Wrong?
