Sean Davis at The Federalist Exposes WaPo’s Jennifer Rubin on Paris Hypocrisy 

Sean Davis over at The Federalist has an excellent piece calling out the phony conservatism of Jennifer Rubin at the Washington Post whose political philosophy appears to have have been reduced to disagreeing with Donald Trump. He writes: "If you want to see a case study in how blind anti-Trumpism corrupts the brain

The vast right-wing conspiracy 2.0, Russia edition

We were all shocked this week when Hillary Clinton took responsibility for her loss to Donald Trump. As long as you understand "taking responsibility" to mean that her loss was the result of a nefarious alliance between "The Russians" and Hillary's longtime nemesis, "The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy." James Antle explains: "Hillary Clinton

The Anatomy of a Lie

In the 2010 hit film, Inception, the lead character—portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio—explains to his protégé—played by Ellen Page, “An idea is like a virus. Resilient. Highly contagious. And even the smallest seed of an idea can grow. It can grow to define or destroy you.” The story centers around DiCaprio and his team

The Real Collusion

Maybe it will be remembered as the weekend when, at long last, the media-Democrat complex overplayed its hand on the “Collusion with Russia” narrative. They are still having so much fun with the new “Jared back-channel to the Kremlin” angle, they appear not to realize it destroys their collusion yarn. Their giddiness is

When presidents have threatened the Washington condominium of Tweedledee liberal Democrats and barely distinguishable Tweedledum Republicans, and then were seen as successes, opposition flaked off in retreat. So it was with Richard Nixon, who arrived

The Continuing Irrelevance of Hillary Clinton and the DNC

Hillary Clinton was interviewed recently by Christiane Amanpour for the vacuously (and ironically) entitled “Women for Women” summit in New York City. During the colloquy, Amanpour brought up foreign policy, specifically as it is related to North Korea. Between the ceaseless barrage of insults hurled at President Trump from both Clinton and Amanpour,

The Obamas and the Clinton Road to Perdition

Hillary and Bill Clinton were a proud, progressive power couple who came into big-time state politics on promises of promoting “fairness” and “equality.” It did not matter much that very little in their previous personal lives had matched such elevated rhetoric with concrete action. And so the ironies and tragedies that followed were

How the Obama Precedent Empowered Trump

Donald Trump was elected president by sizing up the Electoral College, and the voting public, and then campaigning accordingly. A number of the things that explain Trump’s election also point to unique opportunities to overturn the Obama legacy. This, in turn, explains why the Left is understandably upset about the unprecedented scope of
