Tariff Delay Is Trump’s Christmas Gift to China

CNN reports that President Trump's aides persuaded him to delay the imposition of the latest round of protective tariffs, previously scheduled for September, until December 15, 2019. How? They claimed new tariffs would “ruin Christmas.” Peter Navarro, Trump's director of trade and manufacturing policy, defended the move saying that this was Trump’s, "Christmas present to

Spare the Angst Over the ‘Public Charge’ Rule

The Trump Administration is continuing to take steps to enforce existing immigration laws. And the response from the Left and the mainstream media (at this point, one and the same) has been what you’d expect. Earlier in the week, Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that after nearly

Dems Oppose Brexit, Back China for Fear of Anglosphere Resurgence

By now there can be no denying the success of the Trump Administration in righting the ship of America’s international trade position that foundered under previous administrations. Trump, who has been banging on about the matter since the 1980s, has not only begun to rectify the nation’s relationship with cheater China, but recently sent Ambassador

How Immigration Made 14 Million Millennials Homeless

Imagine a homeless man. Does he have a long, frazzled beard and unkempt hair? What do his clothes look like? Probably ratty and full of holes—moth nests in the pockets. Maybe he has a shopping cart full of cans and a mangy dog named “Rusty.” Although culturally ubiquitous, this characterization of the grizzled old hobo

Make Honduras Great . . . Again?

As we near the completion of President Trump’s third year in office, the partisan divisions on the problem of illegal immigration grow ever deeper. For the first two years, Democrats and the mainstream media insisted that there was no crisis at America’s southern border: it was a “manufactured” situation, fake news designed to manipulate the

The Big Break-Up

Ever dated a crazy girl? Sorry. It is 2019. What I meant to ask is: Have you ever consensually courted a woman of alternative mental enthusiasm? Well, it is marvelous. Narcotic and vibrating. Every fibrous sinew tensed and trilling. Sooner or later, however, that choppy high leavens into a faint despair. That vivifying alternative mien

Kevin Williamson’s Faustian Bargain

Kevin D. Williamson recently published an article at National Review titled “The Infernal Art of the Deal,” which compares President Trump to the devil and portrays Trump voters as intellectually dishonest and morally compromised. With no concrete evidence, Williamson then moves on to make broad and false generalizations about Trump supporters—to say nothing about his

Only Bold Proposals Can Displace Globalism

Small-ball, targeted policies, and subtle tweaks will not suffice. Nationalist or globalist? Somewhere or anywhere? American citizen or citizen of the world? These are the questions driving much of our current politics. But what is globalism? Rather than give a definition, I think it’s more instructive to give some examples. Emmanuel Todd, a French sociologist

Who Makes the ‘Rules’ in a ‘Rules-Based’ Liberal Global Order?

The forces promoting global governance represent a serious actor, driver, or player in world politics. Transnationalism or globalism has an ideology and a social-material base. And, crucially, it has a strong American connection. The ideology is utopian, the age-old dream of worldwide peace and prosperity under a benevolent global regime. Further, the globalist project is
