NR Is Coming to New Hampshire

Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, James Lileks, and other NR All-Stars will be in Manchester on Saturday, January 7, for an evening of ruminating, riffing, and debate-watching. And you’re invited! Did I mention the event is free? And that there will be free food?

Joining G, L, & L will be Rich Lowry, Ramesh Ponnuru, Bob Costa, Kathryn Jean Lopez, Uncommon Knowledge host Peter Robinson, and others, all of whom will participate in a great program at the Radisson Hotel Manchester (700 Elm Street). Doors open at 6:00 p.m., and the event should end at approximately 11:45 p.m. Here’s the program:

6:30 to 7:35 p.m. — Rich Lowry moderates a panel discussion on the upcoming NH primaries, and more.

7:45 to 8:50 p.m. — Goldberg, Long, & Lileks spend an hour-plus reflecting wisely and wittily on current events.

9:00 to 11:00 p.m. — Join us as we watch (on a big honkin’ screen) the GOP candidates’ debate being broadcast from nearby St. Anselm College.

11:05 to 11:45 p.m. — G, L, & L regroup for an encore performance of pithy observations on the just-watched debate.

Again, the event (plus food!) is free. But it’s limited (to the first 400 people). Yeah, there is parking, but that’s between you and the Radisson. And so are the drinks — we’ll have a bar setup, but we can’t buy everything, so you’ll have to handle your own brewskis.

How to reserve a spot? Simple: Email and tell us the name(s) of those who will be joining us on January 7.

Democrats Are Dumping Moderates

The activist base of the Democratic party is lurching left fast enough that everyone should pay attention. Activists matter because their turnout in low-turnout primaries and caucuses almost propelled leftist Bernie Sanders to victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Last month, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unseated New ... Read More

1)Al, as you were posting on social media a list of proposed questions for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, did it occur to you that your opinion on the matter is no more relevant than Harvey Weinstein’s? 2) Al, is it appropriate for a disgraced former U.S. senator to use the Twitter cognomen “U.S. ...

Trump’s Helsinki Discord

Donald Trump is not, and never will be, the Moscow correspondent for The Nation magazine, and he shouldn’t sound like it. The left-wing publication is prone to extend sympathetic understanding to adversaries of the United States and find some reason, any reason, to blame ourselves for their external ... Read More

Strzok by a Farce

An investigation is one of two things: a search for the truth, or a farce. The House is conducting a farce. That fact was on full display during ten hours of testimony by Peter Strzok, the logorrheic lawman who steered the FBI’s Clinton-emails and Trump–Russia probes. The principal question before the ...
