Top 10 Reasons to Come On Nr “Post-Election” Cruise


As far as I’m concerned, she’s also reason #1. Michelle is one of the most forceful, brazen, and intelligent conservative writers in America. She is the vigilant one, ever-warning us to be on guard, ever exposing the threats not only to our security but also to our cultural (her skewering of icons such as Madonna are unsurpassed). Her column is a must read. Ditto for website. Here’s the end of her take today on the Annie Jacobsen/Northwest Flight controversy:

I will be doing a lot of flying over the next few months, and I will act–without apology or shame–as the Jacobsens acted on their flight. As much as possible, I will be aware of what’s going on in front and in back of the planes I ride. I will pay attention to detail. I will remember faces and gestures and odd objects. I will write things down. I will pester the flight attendants, discreetly, if I witness anything of concern. I won’t hesitate to contact authorities if my gut tells me that danger is imminent. And I will be prepared to fight for my life.

Bottom line: I will not be lulled by the fashionable apathy of the blind. And I will not be cowed by the politically correct protestations of the dumb.

To those who shrug that “nothing happened” and that this is “not news,” I say: Wake the *%&^#@ up and stop acting like 9/10 sheeple. Better a false alarm than a flaming plane.

Damn straight! Let me be the first to say it: “Malkin in 2008.” Now, if you would like to spend a week (November 13-20 to be precise) on the high seas, on a luxury cruise (on Holland America Line’s glorious Zuiderdam), enjoying sharp/witty discussions of politics and policy, and revelrous socializing (pool-side cocktail parties and “smokers,” and intimate dining with our speakers) with this rising conservative star – and with Dick Morris, Pat Toomey, Victor Davis Hanson, Bernard Lewis, Ed Gillespie, Stephen Moore, Dinesh D’Souza, John Hillen, John Derbyshire, Rich Lowry, Ramesh Ponnuru, and Jay Nordlinger – then you must sign up, today of course. You can do it affordably (super-low prices start at just $1,549 a person!) at Complete information about our trip, the ship, and a secure reservation form can all be found there.

A Sad Finale

Spoilers Ahead. Look, I share David’s love of Game of Thrones. But I thought the finale was largely a bust, for failings David mostly acknowledges in passing (but does not allow to dampen his ardor). The problems with the finale were largely the problems of this entire season. Characters that had been ... Read More

The Great Misdirection

The House Democrats are frustrated, very frustrated. They’ve gotten themselves entangled in procedural disputes with the Trump administration that no one particularly cares about and that might be litigated for a very long time. A Washington Post report over the weekend spelled out how stymied Democrats ... Read More

Australia’s Voters Reject Leftist Ideas

Hell hath no fury greater than left-wingers who lose an election in a surprise upset. Think Brexit in 2016. Think Trump’s victory the same year. Now add Australia. Conservative prime minister Scott Morrison shocked pollsters and pundits alike with his victory on Saturday, and the reaction has been brutal ... Read More

We’ve Had Bill Barr’s Back

One of the more dismaying features of the national political debate lately is how casually and cynically Attorney General Bill Barr has been smeared. He is routinely compared to Roy Cohn on a cable-TV program that prides itself on assembling the most thoughtful and plugged-in political analysts and ... Read More

Warning! If you don't want to read any spoilers from last night's series finale of Game of Thrones, stop reading. Right now. There is a lot to unpack about the Thrones finale, and I fully understand many of the criticisms I read on Twitter and elsewhere. Yes, the show was compressed. Yes, there were moments ... Read More
