Boston Here We Come

And no, this is not about the World Series. It’s about the Galactic Series . . . of Life! . . . and how NR needs to stay in the game. And how is that game-staying done, you ask? Glad you did — by us trying to raise some funds from you generous folks who know two things: The first is that the revenues derived from subscriptions, advertising, and T-shirt sales isn’t enough to pay all NR’s bills, and the second is that, in order to get you to part with some of your hard-earned (and soon-to-be-generous cash), we will come to you and press the flesh.

If you live in the Boston area (which to us includes Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Maine, and Idaho if you can catch a flight to Logan), and want to have us press your flesh (well, that doesn’t sound right, but you know what I mean) on November 20, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Harpoon Brewery, and are willing to make a nice donation that will help keep NR in the game, well, then are you ever in luck!

What’s to be had there? Harpoon Beer, of course (their India Pale Ale is world class — galactic class, even). Homemade pretzels (we had you at beer). Heavy hors d’oeuvres (I think that is Jonah’s favorite English/foreign phrase).

But wait, there’s more! Sign up right now and we’ll add in Mark Steyn, Jonah, Jay Nordlinger, Jim Geraghty, and even Kevin Williamson (just pay separate shipping and handling). That’s right, they will all be there. Will you?

Fun. Wit. Wisdom. Camaraderie. Clinking glasses. Pretzel-eating feats. Discussion of current events. Heck, if someone brings a ukulele we’ll improvise a karaoke contest (Steyn will win!). All that and much more awaits. So join us on November 20 and have a great night and help NR at the same time. Reserve your spot now because the Brewery can only hold 60 (I did mention Jonah, right?). Sign up here.

Another Pollster Sees a Trump Win

The Trafalgar Group’s Robert Cahaly is an outlier among pollsters in that he thinks President Trump will carry Michigan, Pennsylvania, or both, and hence be reelected with roughly 280 electoral votes. (I explained his thinking here.) Last week another pollster, Jim Lee of Susquehanna Polling and Research, ... Read More

The Kavanaugh Court

If Justice Barrett votes as her mentor Justice Scalia did, she will be part of an ascendant conservative majority on the Supreme Court. What kinds of decisions can we expect from this majority? Short answer: Ask Brett Kavanaugh. Contrary to how journalists frame each seat change on the Court, comparing the new ... Read More

Trump vs. Biden: A Rundown

One week out, the contrasts are worth assessing. Foreign policy Biden so far has issued no substantive critique of Trump’s foreign policy other than banalities that Trump’s comportment and unpredictability have offended allies and tarnished America’s reputation. But who exactly, according to Biden, is ... Read More

The Only Middle Finger Available

If Donald Trump wins a second term, it will be an unmistakable countercultural statement in a year when progressives have otherwise worked their will across the culture. After months and months of statues toppling and riots in American cities and a crime wave and woke virtue-signaling from professional sports ... Read More
