National Review

Inside the December 9, 2019, Issue

Let’s get straight to it: You will want to read Madeleine Kearns’s very special report in the new issue of National Review. It’s an in-depth investigation into the case of James Younger, a seven-year-old Texas boy being victimized by experimental transgender ideology/madness, and the widespread abuse of children under the guise of gender affirmation.

It’s powerful stuff (don’t be surprised if Maddy’s piece shakes things up) as is plenty else in the issue, such as Andrew McCarthy’s essay driving home the point that impeachment is a political process, campaign expert Luke Thompson’s look at the intra-Democrat presidential-primary competition between Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — the latter of whom, says Luke, has a better chance in the general election — and Alvin Felzenberg’s important review of a provocative and slanted new book, The Fire Is upon Us: James Baldwin, William F. Buckley Jr., and the Debate over Race in America. If you are a WFB fan (and who isn’t?) this is a mandatory read. These pieces are just some of the exceptional material in this issue, available immediately (the mailman won’t be delivering the print copy for days!) on your favorite conservative website.

By now you should know the drill: If you would only subscribe to NRPLUS, you would be able to read these fine pieces NOW. Trust us: It’s so intoxicating an experience that you’re going to want to share it with others, and since Christmas is approaching . . . how about giving those certain special someones that NRPLUS thrill?! Do that by giving them the gift of NR.

Barr-room Brawl

I’ll confess that I did not watch the entire Judiciary Committee hearing with Bill Barr; I’m grateful that Andy and Rich did the work for me. But I have seen enough of it to fully agree with their sentiments. It was a circus, full of gross process fouls, and everyone who is familiar at all with Congress knows ... Read More

The Chicago Gun Myth

The tragically incompetent mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, appeared on CNN’s State of the Union this weekend to deflect attention from the horror show unfolding in her city by blaming interlopers for its spiking murder rate: “We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, ...

Our Summer of Cultural Suicide

Cultural suicide used to be a popular diagnosis of why things suddenly just quit. Historians such as Oswald Spengler and Arnold Toynbee cited social cannibalism to explain why once-successful states, institutions, and cultures simply died off. Their common explanation was that the arrogance of success ... Read More

Waiting for the Counterrevolution

We are in the midst of a revolution, a cultural and racial one, that seeks to refute the past, damn the present, and hijack the future. So far, however, we have only heard from one side, the revolutionaries and their enablers themselves. Those trying to reject and then reboot America are small as a percentage ... Read More
