What You Missed

Jack Fowler

You know National Review’s subscription pitch about getting four free issues? Well, had you taken that offer recently, congrats, but if you didn’t, here’s what you missed in the last four issues: John Miller’s profile of Bush-whacker Sen. Charles Schumer (D, NY), Rich Lowry’s sterling essay (“Unleash Japan”) calling for Tokyo to abandon its pacifism to counterbalance Peking, Jason Steort’s sweet exposé (“Sugar Daddies”) on how sugar interests are ripping off U.S. consumers and harming national interests, and Ramesh Ponnuru’s insightful essay on a “gay marriage” compromise, plus 32 additional articles, numerous columns (Derb, Brookhiser, Steyn, Rob Long, and oodles of Buckley, including his revered “Notes & Asides”), 16 book reviews (and dozens more reviewed in Mike Potemra’s fantastico “Shelf Life” column), 101 witty and brassy editorial paragraphs, 12 thoughtful editorials, “sidebars” from Jonah and Steve Moore and others, mucho letters, cartoons, poems, and so much more. You get none of this on NRO! Aske yourself: what will the next four issues of NR bring?! Ask yourself: why haven’t I subscribed? Smack yourself, and then tell yourself: “Start NOW!” Do that and you’ll get four free issues of America’s primo journal, available in the handy touch-it, feel-it, read-it, on-paper edition (printed on star-spangled paper in Gordonsville, Virginia, just a stone’s throw from the Tasty Freeze!). Start your subscription to NR, right <A

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?
