Flag Protests and the Power of Symbols

The Harvey Weinstein Scandal Leaves a Trail of Hypocrisy
If hypocrisy were a greenhouse gas, the ice caps would be gone by now.
Let’s start with the obvious: Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein wasn’t fired for being a pig, he was fired for being exposed as one. The ...
Church and State and the NFL
One aspect of the controversy surrounding NFL players’ national-anthem protests has been ignored: Taking a knee ought to be seen, in some larger framework, as a violation of the principle of separation of church and state. The problem is metaphysical, ...
The Paris Statement: Hope for Europe’s Renewal

Supreme Court Takes on Public-Sector Unions

Florida Threatens to Throw Woman in the Slammer for Giving Unlicensed Diet Tips
A woman in Florida is being threatened with jail time for allowing people to pay her to give them nutritional advice — and that’s very, very dumb.

Dear Supremes, Stay Out of the Gerrymandering Business
Last week, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Gil v. Whitford, a case involving the boundaries of Wisconsin state-legislative districts. The plaintiffs are asking the Court to strike down the Republican-drawn lines as an unconstitutional example of partisan gerrymandering.

Menendez and Murphy: A Tale of Two Transgressors
There really is a double standard when it comes to politicians accused of unethical behavior or corruption. Republicans tend to resign when the scandal involves merely deplorable or disgusting behavior. They are usually flayed in the media with a torrent ...
Harvey Weinstein, Fox News, and the Power of Self-Interest
So it turns out that basically everyone in Hollywood knew that Harvey Weinstein sexually harasses women, abuses his employees, and has a violent streak. It was one of those things we call an “open secret,” a secret perhaps even more ...
Is support for gun ownership and the Second Amendment a “fetish”? Bret Stephens, a New York Times columnist, sure thinks so.

Gerrymandering Isn’t a Republican Problem
This week, the Supreme Court heard arguments in Gill v. Whitford, a case in which they will decide whether Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting plan is unconstitutional. Until now, the Court has hesitated to strike down partisan gerrymandering, primarily because there is ...
Yes, the Bubbas Can Beat Uncle Sam
Another sickening mass shooting, and another dispiriting round of debates about the place of guns in American life. And, just as many of the gun-control measures proposed are not germane to the events people wish to see stopped, neither are ...
Pop Goes the Liberal Media Bubble
For years, reporters were content to obscure their ideological dogmas and partisan goals behind the pretense of objectivity and detachment. Though the Washington Post, New York Times, and CNN practiced combat journalism against conservatives and Republicans, they did so while ...
AOL Instant Messenger: A Eulogy
I haven’t used AOL Instant Messenger in years, but that doesn’t mean that the announcement that it’s being discontinued in December hasn’t got me feeling like someone close to me just died.

Pro-Life Women Don’t Loathe Their Own Womanhood
If we believe the social elites, it’s truly a trying time to be a woman in America.

Trump’s Delicious Tax Cut
President Donald J. Trump last week promised Americans “a giant, beautiful, massive — the biggest ever in our country — tax cut.” As delicious as that sounds, Trump’s tax overhaul may be tastiest for what it makes tiny, appealing, and compact: ...

Terrorism Financing: It’s Time to Take Care of Unfinished Business
Under the Trump administration, American policy towards Islamist threats seems to be toughening. The Obama administration planned to award Countering Violent Extremism grants to Islamist groups linked to the Muslim Brotherhood; in June, the Department of Homeland Security rescinded the ...
People who like to think and read (and write) about politics often fool themselves. We become skilled at drawing out the meaning of events — especially if the events themselves signify little or nothing at all. Many political addicts imagined that ...
Blade Runner 2049 : The Politics of Hollywood Hacks
The highly stylized 1982 science-fiction film Blade Runner was probably an influence on 2046, Wong Kar-wai’s wondrous, poetic art-movie investigation into a science-fiction writer’s romantic history with several women. Now it appears that 2046 has, in turn, influenced the reboot of ...
Our fallen in a twilight struggle, &c.
News came on Wednesday that three of our Green Berets were killed in Niger, and two wounded. (For a story, go here.) What were they doing in Niger? They were fighting al-Qaeda — the Jihad, as I refer to it. You ...
In Las Vegas, a Peculiarly American Madness Rears Its Ugly Head
All countries have mental illness, but its expression differs dramatically by culture. Historically, in southeast Asia, men whose minds were coming unglued displayed symptoms of wild, uncontrolled violence. It was called “amok” and entered our language as “running amok.” In ...
Politicians and Guns: Follow the Votes, Not the Money
An old rule of thumb holds that when someone says it’s not about the money, it’s really about the money.
But there are exceptions to almost every rule. The National Rifle Association is a case in point.
Treat ‘Bump Stocks’ Like Machine Guns
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has confirmed that the Las Vegas shooter possessed twelve “bump stocks.” This is a piece of technology that makes an easily available semiautomatic rifle fire almost as quickly as a fully automatic ...
Against the Misguided Moral Superiority of Gun Controllers
By now you’ve seen it a thousand times. On Twitter, in print, and on the air, Democratic politicians and progressive activists try to name and shame conservatives — especially conservative politicians — who offer “thoughts and prayers” in the aftermath of ...
Steven Spielberg’s Triumph, and His Mistake
When was the last time you heard someone say, “The movie that really put me in touch with the extraordinary power of cinema was Gandhi”? How many film lovers have even watched it more than once? Gandhi, cinematically speaking, is ...
Waiving the Jones Act for Puerto Rico Is the Right Step
Republican senators Mike Lee (R., Utah) and John McCain (R., Ariz.) have introduced legislation to permanently exempt Puerto Rico from the Jones Act. This is a common-sense decision on the merits that will help the island recover from Hurricane Maria. ...
Las Vegas, the NFL, and Jimmy Kimmel
American political discourse is becoming more fruitless all the time.
The terrible tragedy in Las Vegas has led to amplified calls for gun control, although no version of gun control that anyone is advocating would have prevented that tragedy. The ...

Bikini-Clad Baristas Serve Up a Lesson in Free Speech

The Left Misunderstands the Power of the NRA
It never fails. Every single time there is a mass shooting in the United States, a huge section of the Left singles out a single political culprit. Yes, they condemn the shooter, but it’s almost as if there’s ...
The House of Representatives has to its credit passed a bill that would limit abortions performed after the 20th week of pregnancy. We urge Mitch McConnell to undertake every exertion to get it through the Senate and put it on ...
Journalism Is Not Like Selling Pizza
‘Taken seriously,” Milton Friedman once wrote, “the doctrine of ‘social responsibility’ would extend the scope of the political mechanism to every human activity.” Friedman concluded that the only social responsibility of business is to increase its profits. That sounds about ...

With retired Marine general John Kelly serving as White House ...
Jimmy Kimmel’s Predictable Gun-Control Rant

As the White Rabbit said: “Don’t just do something — stand there.”
In a podcast the day after the massacre in Las Vegas, Michael Graham asked me what supporters of the Second Amendment ought to do in reaction to such ...
Tom Petty: Southern Boy, American Man
The titles of his greatest songs tell the story of Tom Petty: “Refugee,” “Rebels,” “Even the Losers.” He boasted (“You Got Lucky”), he pleaded (“I Need to Know”). All of these were songs to yell and stomp to, and all ...
Jimmy Kimmel Is Sincerely Wrong about Guns
It’s a distressing reality of our hyper-politicized culture that all too many people value fame and good intentions over facts and reason. And so it is with the rise of the Left’s philosopher-comedians, the men and women that ...
Are Wars Caused by Accidents?
As tensions mount with North Korea, fears arise that President Trump’s tit-for-tat bellicose rhetoric with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un might lead to miscalculations — and thus an accidental war that could have been prevented.
Is there evidence in ...
Catalonia's Independence Vote and the Resistance to Centralism
If “No taxation without representation” was the motto of the American Revolution, “Madrid nos roba” is the motto of Catalonia’s independence movement. The saying, which translates to “Madrid robs us,” summarizes the view of many in the northeastern Spanish ...
Notes, Asides, and Memories
After many and legendary years at 150 East 35th Street, National Review moved to 215 Lexington Avenue. That was at the end of 1996. Two years later, I came along. (I don’t mean that I was born but that I arrived at ...
Our Halting Progress toward Maximum Economic Freedom
The good news is that the bad news isn’t quite as bad.

Yes, the Democratic Party’s Polarization Helps Explain Trump’s Rise
Should the government ramp up its efforts to help the needy? Democrats overwhelmingly say yes (71 percent); the other party, at 54 percent, is less enthusiastic. Is racial discrimination the primary reason why black Americans can’t get ahead these days? Sixty-four ...
Obama Lied. My Fourth Health Plan Died.
Cue the funeral bagpipes. My fourth health insurance plan is dead.
Two weeks ago, my husband and I received yet another cancellation notice for our private, individual health insurance coverage. It’s our fourth Obamacare-induced obituary in four years. Our ...
Can the NFL Survive National Polarization?
There’s something that has always bothered me about the argument that commercial enterprises can’t succeed if they “alienate half the audience.” In the vast majority of cases, it’s just wrong. America is an enormous country, not everyone ...
Democrats’ Choice: Dreamers or the Resistance
Democrats and their mainstream-media cheering section are panning the Trump administration’s latest terms for granting legal status to the “Dreamers” — illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as minors and are covered under President Obama’s Deferred Action ...
Not long ago, late-night comedian and would-be philosopher Steven Colbert signaled the nation his virtuous outrage over the Trump presidency. Colbert offered that Trump had “a feeble f***ing anemic firefly of a soul.” His puerile efforts at alliteration were ...
Congress Should Investigate the Organic Scam
Several lawmakers just introduced a bill that would nearly triple the budget for the USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP), the federal agency in charge of overseeing the U.S. organic market. But before we hand over more tax dollars ...
The Other al-Baghdadi — and the Christians Fighting for Freedom in Syria
Raqqa, Syria — The soldiers of the Syriac Military Council sit on a rug in an abandoned home in the urban wreckage of the caliphate’s capital, perhaps 200 yards from ISIS, drinking tea and chain-smoking. The predominantly Christian unit is a ...
Goodbye, Clean Power Plan
There were three good reasons to abandon the Clean Power Plan, and EPA administrator Scott Pruitt cited two of them in his decision, announced Monday, to rescind the cumbrous carbon dioxide rule.
The first argument against the Clean Power Plan ...
Stop Exploiting Victims for Political Gain
Let me begin with a crass question. Does the fact that Representative Steve Scalise got shot make him more or less of an expert on gun control? In other words, does his suffering render him a political voice worth listening ...
The Washington Post Gets Retirement Wrong
Experts disagree on how well prepared Americans are for retirement. Data on income and savings aren’t perfect, and economists differ as to how much they think a household actually needs to fund a comfortable retirement. Some studies find a ...
The Intellectual Roots of the War against Columbus
Bashing Christopher Columbus has long been de rigueur among the liberal elite. Today, it has infiltrated our nation’s classrooms and poisons our public discourse. You know the mantra: Columbus was a greedy and egomaniacal villain who brought slavery, disease, “...
John McCain: Appreciating America’s ‘Imperfect Servant’
In early 1982, one of my several housemates at the time informed me that he would be leaving our place in Tempe, Ariz., and moving into a spare room in the home of a newly married couple nearby, the husband a ...
The Problem with Trump’s Calling for More Positive Coverage of Himself on TV
On Saturday, President Trump called for television programs to give “equal time” to positive coverage of him and his viewpoints.
It’s honestly one of the most unsettling things that I’ve seen in a while.
In case you’re ...
Our 21st-Century Second Amendment
A progressive correspondent asks: “If you were drafting the Constitution in 2017, would you include the Second Amendment?”
It’s an ignorant question, but one that was asked in good faith, and the answer may be illuminating to some of our ...
The Left Stays Largely Silent on Weinstein Scandal
The recently appointed oracle of our nation, late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel, has chosen to fall silent when it comes to sexual harassment. Perhaps his left-wing politics have something to do with it.
After an explosive New York Times exposé revealed ...
Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan: One of America's Most Successful Politicians
With biblical succinctness, and foreshadowing a resurrection, Mike Duggan said, “Let there be light!” and 65,000 LED streetlights replaced the 40 percent of the city’s streetlights that were broken when he took office in 2014. They are among the many reasons that ...
Theresa May and the Future of British Conservatism
Much the best of many brutal comments on Theresa May’s hapless Tory-conference address was a quotation from the early James Bond: Once is happenstance; twice may be coincidence; the third time is enemy action.
Three interruptions did indeed destroy ...
Mysterious Sonic Attacks in Cuba May Be Quite Logical
For ten months, covert “attacks of an unknown nature” have caused a variety of injuries to at least 22 U.S. employees at U.S. diplomatic residences and hotels in Havana. The U.S. government has issued a travel warning on ...
Collusion and the Trump Dossier
It is an article of faith among the president’s most ardent supporters: The Trump dossier is a completely discredited piece of garbage. Hence, its relevance is limited to one matter and one matter alone: The dossier’s suspected use ...
Kevin Hassett Spanks the Tax Policy Center
President Trump’s new CEA chair, Kevin Hassett, walked into the lion’s den last week with his first official speech. He used the moment to pound the leftist Tax Policy Center (TPC). It was a wonderful sight.
When Hassett ...

Abortion Is Wrong Even If the Fetus Is Not a Person
Have you noticed how political debates over abortion often degenerate into egregious and intellectually unserious demagoguery?
This shouldn’t surprise — such debates often function as arenas for persuasion at any cost, which has the unfortunate consequence of making truth less ...
What about Event Security?
In the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre, everybody is talking about gun control. We should be talking about event planning.
With all due respect to Bret Stephens, who recently argued in the New York Times for repealing the Second ...
The Mysterious Female Conservative
This fall, if you’re lucky enough to hang your hat at the leafy, cloistered, and widely acclaimed Amherst College — checking in at #2 in the rankings of national liberal-arts colleges by U.S. News and World Report, with tuition at ...
The idea that gun-control advocates don’t want to confiscate your weapons is, of course, laughable. They can’t confiscate your weapons, so they support whatever feasible incremental steps inch farther toward that goal. Some folks are more considerate and ...
Both Parties Seem Determined to Lose the Next Elections
Almost no one disagrees that our two major political parties, the oldest and third-oldest in the world, have become increasingly extreme and estranged over the past decade. It’s a startling contrast with the state of political conflict in the ...
If Secretary of State Rex Tillerson resigned, how would anyone know?

Berkeley Students Insist They Cannot Take Their In-Class Exam Due to Lack of Privilege

Cleveland Finally Gets It: Winning the World Series Is the Aim of the Game
When the Indians win the World Series for the first time since 1948, whether it’s later this month or the last fall before Judgment Day, Clevelanders will finally exhale. They will open the sluices on their great lake of generational ...
Bret Stephens Indeed Does Not Understand the Second Amendment
‘I have never understood the conservative fetish for the Second Amendment,” writes Bret Stephens today. And then he proceeds to prove that.
His column is not a rigorous one. Indeed, it is barely a column so much as it is ...
Senators, Pass the Ban on the Abortion of Fetuses Capable of Feeling Pain
Can unborn children feel pain, and, if so, should they be protected from the painful experience of abortion?

SCOTUS Must Not Let EPA Twist Clean Water Act to Limit Judicial Review
One of the brilliant innovations arising out of the conflict between the crown and Parliament in 17th-century England was an independent judiciary with power to override the king. As the American administrative state grows, this innovation is of critical importance: ...
Mr. President, Decertify the Iran Deal and Then Walk Away
The question is not whether President Trump should decertify President Obama’s farcical Iran nuclear deal. Of course he should. Indeed, he must: Even if we set common sense to the side, federal law requires it.
Instead, there are two ...
The Glass House of the NFL
The National Football League is a glass house that was cracking well before Donald Trump’s criticism of players who refuse to stand during the national anthem.
The NFL earned an estimated $14 billion last year. But 500-channel television, Internet live ...
A New York Times ‘Fact-Checker’ Misfires on Guns
Theoretically, it might make sense for a news outlet that bills itself as the nation’s “paper of record” to have a daily or weekly column devoted to fact-checking the claims and assertions made by America’s punditariat. Theoretically.
There Is No Such Thing as ‘Health Care’
Editor’s Note: Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry is writing a series of columns on uncomfortable truths about health care in America. Some will make conservatives more uncomfortable, others will make progressives more uncomfortable, but most should make everyone uncomfortable.

We Need Fallacy Control Now
Enough is enough. It’s epidemic. It’s dangerous. And the time has come to demand its end.
In the aftermath of the horrific massacre in Las Vegas, America needs fallacy control. Yes, we must declare war on fallaciousness. Now ...
On Late-Term Abortion, Liberals Are the Real Science Deniers
For years, liberals have tarred those who question climate-change research as “deniers” of scientific facts. The label was meant to equate disagreeing with computer models that predict a rise in temperatures with denying the Holocaust. It’s a clever tactic ...
Boris Johnson’s False Optimism
‘It is time to stop treating the [Brexit] referendum result as though it were a plague of boils or a murrain on our cattle or an inexplicable aberration by 17.4 million people,” Boris Johnson said in a characteristically tub-thumping speech at ...
The GOP Governor Will Pay a Price for Taxpayer-Funded Abortion in Illinois
If you’re from Illinois, you’re accustomed to, and therefore not surprised by, politicians making questionable judgment calls. There were the attempts by the convicted and now imprisoned former governor Rod Blagojevich to sell the U.S. Senate seat ...
The GOP Base Is Beyond Trump’s Control
The conservative movement is caught in a Catch-22 of its own making. In the war against “the establishment,” we have made being an outsider the most important qualification for a politician. The problem? Once elected, outsiders by definition become insiders. ...
I’m Not Arguing in Favor of the Second Amendment, the Second Amendment Is the Argument
Whenever a gun tragedy happens in the United States, it seems like there are two sides: One that argues against Second Amendment protections, and one that argues for them.
It seems simple enough, but what’s missing is this: The ...
Blade Runner 2049: Dark Vision Is Not Enough
Blade Runner 2049 may be breathtaking cinema, but it isn’t great storytelling. I’m not even sure it’s good storytelling. It falls into a small category of films whose scale and inventiveness must be savored on the big screen ...
A Judge Both Conservatives and Liberals Can Admire
Conservatives and liberals seldom agree on anything these days, especially where it concerns judges. Liberals abhor the likes of Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, and the late Antonin Scalia while conservatives view Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, and Elena Kagan with utter ...
The Tories Still Don’t Know What They’re For
A week after the Labour party held a jubilant conference that demonstrated heretofore unknown reserves of unity behind old lefty Jeremy Corbyn, it is now the Conservatives’ turn. And the results are underwhelming. Do the Tories know what they believe ...
More Immigration Would Mean More Democrats
One of the chief criticisms of the DREAM Act (or of any amnesty) is that it will have long-lasting repercussions on legal immigration. Once naturalized, “Dreamers” can sponsor their parents and other family members, turning what was supposed to be ...
