The Trouble With Full-Disclosure

Now readers want to know what I make. Well, good luck finding out. I will tell you that I am essentially on half-pay from NRO (imagine the sound of a saltine cracker being snapped in two) until the G-File is back and I start writing for the mag again (remember I’m on quasi leave to write the Neverending Story, er, my book). Also, I’ve always been a glorified consultant to NRO. I carry my own freight on health care and I make extra money taking care of Derb’s rain gutters on weekend (generous Wall Street tycoon that he is).

I’m not really complaining (much). The suits at NR have actually been quite kind to me over the years, despite my ribbing. But, again, if you think people work at NR for the money, it’s time to get off the pipe. And, even if we were the best-compensated journalists in America, making Vanity Fair wages or some such, I would still say Kathryn is grossly underpaid.

It was rather less exciting than that sounds: She went on a rant about “Nazis” and “fascism” — Gillum’s ... Read More

The Georgia Smear

Back in 2016, when Trump refused to say he’d necessarily accept the result if he lost, we were told that this was a terrible violation of democratic norms. Now, refusing to accept that you lost an election is the highest form of patriotism. Not only are the media and the Left not pressuring Stacey Abrams to ... Read More

How Immigration Changes Britain

Almost nothing is discussed as badly in America or Europe as the subject of immigration. And one reason is that it remains almost impossible to have any sensible or rational public discussion of its consequences. Or rather it is eminently possible to have a discussion about the upsides (“diversity,” talent, ... Read More
