Memo from Manchester: Don’t Let the Swamp Win on Immigration

The excruciating facts keep on coming in. Twenty-two are dead, many of them children. About five dozen others are wounded, such that the death-toll may climb. The Islamic State jihadist network, having exhorted its willing Western-based recruits to attack in place, has claimed responsibility. And now comes the revelation that the suicide-terrorist, Salman Abedi,

The Biggest Threat to the First Amendment is the Press Itself

The media has been deceptive and/or outright lying about Trump for a long time now. Mollie Hemingway detailed just a few of their whoppers in a recent piece. When the president exercised his constitutional authority to fire FBI Director James Comey, the New York Times published a story accusing Trump of pressuring Comey

The Nightmares and the Realities of Never Trump

Rarely in the last half-century have so many elite conservatives and intellectuals been so estranged both from a Republican administration and from those who voted for it—neither have they become so animated in their antipathy and disgust for a sitting president. During the 2016 election, and the current Trump presidency, there have appeared

What “Make America Great Again” Really Means

Donald Trump’s wholly unprecedented political disruption and victory is still working itself out and will surely reverberate in the public’s consciousness for years to come. It also added a new phrase to our national political vocabulary: “Make America Great Again.” The press, the Left, and the anti-Trump faction of the conservative Right want

Plain Talk about Law School Rot

The legal academy is a strange place. It differs from other intellectual disciplines in that legal scholarship is published mainly in student-edited law reviews, not peer-reviewed journals. Most faculty members at elite law schools have never practiced law, or have done so only briefly and usually without professional distinction. The curricula at many

Author’s note: This article has been proofread by Louise Mensch. Any fake news contained herein is therefore impossible unless Vladimir Putin hacked American Greatness, which he probably did right after faking the moon landing.

Is Rush Limbaugh Right About the Declaration of Independence?

Rush Limbaugh has always had a keen talent for rooting out liberal assumptions. A gadfly to the ruling class, the broadcasting powerhouse has the unique (and almost philosophic) talent of angering the Beltway literati while at the same time edifying his audience. On his radio show last week, Limbaugh sensed he had happened

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s Ridiculous ‘100 Days’ Report

The Southern Poverty Law Center is at it again. At the hundred-day mark of President Trump’s administration, the center has released a report that purports to expose the rampant “white nationalism” the president and his “alt-right” advisors have unleashed upon the nation. Instead of judging President Trump’s actual record, the report rehashes left-wing
