Embrace Fiscal Responsibility, Not Tax Cuts, in 2020

As Democratic presidential candidates stumble over one another in a headlong rush towards socialism and fiscal insanity—promising trillions in new spending on everything from child care, health care, and higher education for all, to “the Green New Deal” and slavery reparations—President Trump faces a critical choice. He could try to match the Democrats and promise

Impeachment Inquiry Is Bad . . . for Biden

Amid the consensus that Wednesday’s congressional testimony by the Beltway version of the Duke brothers (that’s a “Trading Places” reference, millennials) fell flat without any “pizazz,” Democrats undoubtedly are scrambling to create some fireworks next week. House Intelligence Committee chairman and Hollywood wannabe-screenwriter Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) must be channeling his inner creative genius to fabricate

Impeachment Day One:
Two Hearsay Witnesses Outraged by Gossip

If you were lost in the maze of hearsay and speculation during the first day of the impeachment inquiry, you can certainly be forgiven for your confusion. The sharp contrast between the vague stream of guesses and characterizations on the one hand and the melodramatic expressions of alarm and concern on the other, as expressed

Whose Witness Is Bolton?

The would-be impeachers had been salivating at the prospect that John Bolton, who President Trump had fired after 17 months as his national security advisor, would lend his undoubted “conservative bona fides” to their campaign to convince Americans that Trump is bad, awful, illegitimate, dangerous, even criminal. Lately however, they have settled on doing with

Democrats Are Failing the Reality Test

It’s hard to think of a major Democrat issue and proposed solution that is not a fake. It’s an emergency. What’s the emergency? Everything. The planet, white privilege, transgender rights, Nazi policies on the border, killer cops. A health care crisis so dire the government must ban private insurance, private doctors, and private hospitals. Most

‘Anonymous’ Book Is an Unprecedented Attack on the Presidency

The deep state—which the media used to pretend was a myth—is now admitting openly that it exists. The incontrovertible fact that the deep state is real and active presents a clear danger to our constitutional order. The media have provided ground preparation, in a New York Times op-ed that sets out to do two things. First,

Why the Whistleblower and Schiff Must Testify

Monday evening on “Special Report with Bret Baier,” impeachment-phile Bari Weiss trotted out a new talking point. “Just one last thing about the whistleblower. You know, if an informant calls the NYPD and says ‘there’s a house full of cocaine at the end of the block,’ and the NYPD goes there and finds a house

After the Great Orange Whale

"Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord"—a pretty flat declaration as reported by the Apostle Paul, leaving few gaps for politicians to fill at their own discretion. But you know politicians. Here we go with the impeachment hearings, an intended spectacle meant more as payback to President Donald Trump for winning the election

The Democrats Won’t Find a Savior in Michael Bloomberg

The best aspect of Michael Bloomberg’s potential presidential run is that if he were elected, we may be reasonably confident that he would be a competent president, which should be an immense relief to anyone who takes seriously the possibility that any of the four remaining Democratic candidates with appreciable support—Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie

Fake Russia and Ukraine Scandals Expose a True One

There is a striking symmetry between the charge that Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russia to sway the outcome of the election and the Democrats’ current effort to impeach President Trump. Both involve our relations with countries that Americans do not think of very often, but over which the elites obsess. The rhetoric in
