Whatever You Do, Don’t Miss the NRPlus Call with Dan Crenshaw!

National Review’s Kevin D. Williamson and Representative Dan Crenshaw (R., Texas) (Pete Marovich)

Next week, I’ll be joining Representative Dan Crenshaw (R., Texas) on a conference call for members of NR Plus. It’s the eighth one we’ve done so far, with past guests including Ben Shapiro and Karl Rove. If you’re a member, I look forward to you joining the call, and if not, you should sign up now so you can reserve a spot — it’s going to be great.

Crenshaw, of course, is an American hero and represents the second congressional district of Texas, which encompasses parts of Houston, in the House of Representatives. He served three tours of duty as a Navy SEAL and rose to the rank of lieutenant commander. In his first year as a congressman, Crenshaw’s fresh voice and principled stands have made him a stand-out addition to the conservative moment.

On the call, which will be on May 29, we’ll talk about his path in politics, the debate over socialism, and more. As usual, we’ll be taking questions via our members-only Facebook group. If you haven’t signed up for NRPlus yet, please do. We’d love to see you at the end of the month and on future calls as part of this great NR community.

Pro-Abortion Nonsense from John Irving

The novelist has put up a lot of easy targets in his New York Times op-ed. I am going to take aim at six of his points, starting with his strongest one. First: Irving asserts that abortion was legal in our country from Puritan times until the 1840s, at least before “quickening.” That’s an overstatement. ... Read More

Murder Mystery: An Old Comedy Genre Gets Polished Up

I  like Adam Sandler, and yet you may share the sense of trepidation I get when I see that another of his movies is out. He made some very funny manboy comedies (Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Waterboy) followed by some not-so-funny manboy comedies, and when he went dark, in Reign over Me and Funny People, ...
