Anatomy of a Witch Hunt

A year has now passed since Donald J. Trump was elected president of the United States. Trump frequently refers to the daily barrage of attacks on his presidency as a “witch hunt.” A quick review of the opinion essays published by mainstream (liberal) outlets shows the president is not exaggerating. The liberal media

Corruption, Globalized

As long as there has been politics, there has been corruption. So the investigative hand-grenades which have been flying for the past year, first at the Trump campaign, now at Mrs. Clinton’s, are not exactly new in American political life. What is new, however, is the geography. Corruption used to be something American

So Many Screamers, So Little Reason

They’re screaming in New York City. They’re screaming in Chicago and San Francisco and L.A. About 4,000 people were supposed to scream on Boston Common, but the event’s organizer inexplicably canceled due to “reasons beyond our control.” Nevertheless, thousands of Americans are supposed to assemble on Nov. 8 to “scream helplessly at the

Sky Screamers

Why,” inquired the Psalmist, “do the heathen rage?” That’s a question to revisit, in every age. If King David were to ask me that today, I’d reply: “I suppose they did not get their way.” Why do the coyotes howl at the moon? Though it is a particularly soulful tune, Those aren’t astronomers,

The NeverTrump Nerds’ Quest to Save Mueller

The shrewd, erudite club of NeverTrump “conservatives” has finally hatched a plan to reclaim the Republican Party from Donald Trump and win the hearts and minds of Republicans across the country. Yes, this wily gang—who named themselves “Meeting of the Concerned” because it sounds better than “Republican AV Club of Geeks and Losers”—launched

Trump Has Broken the Apology Hypnosis on Race

He broke me,” Kathy Griffin famously said of our 45th President as she gazed, narcissistically, upon her self-inflicted wounds after incomprehensibly and symbolically decapitating the man Politico once called an outsider and an outer-borough brawler. Many Americans of the conservative persuasion have been waiting for a brawler who would fight the good fight

Robert Mueller’s Small Fry

Since Robert S. Mueller has pursued President Trump’s people so aggressively, we need to go back to the letter which appointed him as special prosecutor. It told him to look for signs of coordination between Trump’s campaign supporters and the Russian government. But that’s not all it said. The overarching purpose of Mueller’s

Conservatism Needs a Reformation

Yesterday was the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s start of what became known as the Protestant Reformation. The Reformation was launched and gained traction because of a belief that an institution, long beloved and promising salvation to its believers, had grown remote, confused, corrupt, and ineffective. Today another institution is facing a similar

Obama’s Shady Trump-Russia Spinmeister

An explosive story by Sean Davis at The Federalist reveals that President Obama’s PAC, Obama for America, paid nearly $1 million in 2016 to the law firm that retained Fusion GPS, the consulting group responsible for the infamous Trump “dossier.” According to Davis, Federal Election Commission records show the Democratic National Committee, Hillary
