The Unbearable Mendacity of NeverTrump-Inspired Comparisons

It requires a special degree of mendacity to compare Robert Mueller’s recent indictments to the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Only someone desperate to get attention, or to please his new Trump-hating masters at a top news organization, or to improve his name recognition to sell his new book, would be shameless enough to equate

Russia Focus Neglects the Real Threat from China

Samantha Vinograd, a former senior national security advisor under President Obama, intoned Monday on CNN that in light of the previous week’s indictment of 13 Russian trolls, “We are under live attack and we’re doing nothing.” Now, we know about these semi-hapless Russian trolls because Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Friday announced

Why Not Invite NeverTrump to CPAC?

Adapt or die. Such, I would argue, was the ultimatum faced by the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) after last year. As I explained in serious, but not literal, detail at the time, the conference’s adherence to checklist conservatism gave it the appearance of a corpse still twitching with fragments of consciousness. So

Heroism Befitting Free Men

The U.S. Army on Tuesday announced it would award the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) Medal of Heroism to the three high school cadets slain attempting to protect their classmates during last week’s murderous attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. The grieving families of heroic JROTC Cadets Peter Wang,

Once Again, A House Divided

And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. —Mark 3:25 (King James Version) In the wake of the horrific shootings in Parkland, Florida, shouldn’t the people of this country be united in grief? Apparently not. Innocent victims are not yet buried, but rather than allowing us to mourn together

Mental Health or Nihilism?

On January 29, the Senate defeated a bill that would have outlawed abortion beyond 20 weeks (five months) gestation. Reaction was swift on the part of pro-life citizens. “We cannot tolerate a society and live in a country with any level of pride when our babies are being slaughtered … the effect of

Mitt Romney’s Two Paths

Something happened in U.S. politics last week that shocked no one. No, I’m not talking about liberals blaming Americans en masse for the horrific mass shooting at a Florida high school. Nor am I referring to the press’s shameful effort to keep the Trump-Russia collusion narrative alive, even though Robert Mueller and his

The Media’s Walk-of-Shame Won’t End

The media have been on a walk-of-shame bender since 2016. They were whored out by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, swallowed the Christopher Steele dossier, and still get drunk-dialed by the Left. The cheap-date journos show up every time. Each morning, the media floozies trudge through the quad wearing their “I’m With Her” t-shirts from

Congress Loses Focus on Illegal Immigration

Last week, Congress tried—and failed—to act on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The Senate failed to reach the necessary 60 votes on four proposals, two from Republicans and two from Democrats, and three of which offered varying degrees of amnesty for DACA recipients and other illegal immigrant populations. There was
