Emma Watson and
the ‘Self-Love’ Scam

It would be difficult to find a more apt expression of the narcissism and emptiness of our culture than actress Emma Watson’s recent relationship “update.” Entering upon her 30s without a husband or children, Watson momentarily was filled with rumblings of dread. But she has since found inner peace after consecrating her singledom with the label

The Democrats Are Neoconservatives Now

When the establishment boot comes stomping, it’s clear that party affiliation matters less to the swamp than loyalty to its dictates. Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) is a doctrinaire liberal in nearly every respect but one. Yet what unites her and Trump is significant enough to make both targets of a machine bent on destroying them.

No, the Biden-Ukraine Story Is Not a ‘Conspiracy Theory’

Anyone who thinks it’s weird that Hunter Biden got a $600,000 a year sinecure in a notoriously corrupt country when his father was the former president’s point man for that country is now said to be a “conspiracy theorist.” That’s the story being told by the “fact-checkers” in the corporate leftist press. As they would

The Backward Logic of Cancel Culture Apologists

The tiresome subject of “cancel culture” is now, unfortunately, one that cannot responsibly be avoided. An old tweet surfaces, and all of a sudden a comedian, an actor, or even some hapless, powerless citizen, is at the center of an online tribunal. A series of recent events have enlivened the debate. Comedian Shane Gillis lost

Russiagate Gets a Bad and Frightening Facelift

The Democrat’s impeachment “inquiry” is not about anything Trump did or didn’t do. Like the anti-climactic Russian soap opera that came before it, it’s about discrediting President Trump before the 2020 election. Their last attempt failed; unashamed and undeterred, they’re giving it another shot. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) deserves some credit. She

Democrats Have Given Up on the Common Good

Joe Biden has had a hard few weeks. He may appear to be losing it, but looks can be deceiving. Lunch Pail Joe may be the one Democratic candidate who understands what Americans care most about Speaking recently at an LGBT event, the former vice president told the audience, “In prison the determination should be

Bolton May Be Gone, But Boltonism Lives On

Another “adult in the room” has left the Trump White House. President Trump’s unceremonious dismissal of National Security Advisor John Bolton is fantastic news for America and a sign that change may still be possible in an administration that seemed to have sunk into the establishment quagmire. The familiar creatures have their objections, from Mitt

The Classical Tyranny of the Left’s Gun Policy

After months of dithering in a campaign as aimless as its Keroucian prologue, Beto O’Rourke had an interesting thought that’s also kind of true: “America is f---ed up” for tolerating mass shootings. He’s not wrong, but his indignant posturing is misplaced. Last week, Beto gave a rather f---ed up answer to a question about abortion.

The Boomer Revolution and Its Consequences

The Wall Street Journal this week published the results of a survey that found Americans’ values are shifting drastically, and not in a good way. The poll, conducted with NBC News, found that Americans care less about patriotism, family, and faith than they did 20 years ago. The percentage of Americans who regard family as very

Who Benefits from the 1619 Project?

Last week, a little pamphlet of the working man called the New York Times announced a new initiative in moral enlightenment for the great mass of ignorant Americans. The “1619 Project,” as it’s called, “aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions
