Anatomy of China’s Influence Operation

Washington’s obsession with foreign interference in U.S. elections drove the three-year fixation on Russia and morphed into a compulsive fascination with the darker corners of the Ukraine (are there any bright corners in that benighted land?). Once again the Pharisees strain at gnats but swallow a camel. If they are concerned about a foreign power

Democrats Are the Enemy of a DACA Fix

Americans demand that our immigration laws be enforced and clarified, and demand that the economic and national security quagmire issue of illegal immigration be remedied, once and for all. Illegal immigration is a bipartisan failure, which goes to show that bipartisanship is highly overrated. It usually just means both sides are wrong. The U.S. Supreme

Escalating Cartel Violence Demands a U.S. Response

The horrific murders of nine American women and children in Mexico last week has left the country reeling—and exposed Mexico as a cartel-led, warlord state that is an increasing threat to U.S. national security. The daylight attack occurred less than 100 miles from the Arizona border in the northern Mexican state of Sonora. Women and

Move Washington Out of Washington

What do you suppose the Alliance for American Advertising has in common with the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists, the American Society of Civil Engineers, or American Apparel and Footwear? Apart from beginning with the letter “A,” they are among the nearly 3,500 trades or firms that have dedicated lobbying operations in Washington, D.C. And

The People vs. Parliament

In a world in which men crown themselves champions in women’s sports, an exciting cultural mutation churns. Turkeys, long considered to harbor a grave and considerate suspicion of the festive season, last week voted for Christmas. A modish progression. After twice blocking an election, and refusing to help pass Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal, Labour last

The Pentagon, Prudence, and Missile Defense

Earlier this year, the U.S. military acknowledged that North Korean intercontinental ballistic missiles can now hit targets anywhere in the continental United States. Bizarrely, the Pentagon has responded by cutting the one program that could stop them. The Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) program, which has existed since the early 2000s, is designed to protect the

Juilliard Goes to China

Communist China wants to subjugate America’s traditional culture. The Juilliard School—regarded as one of the world’s most prestigious conservatories, deeply rooted in European music—has partnered with the People’s Republic of China. Currently under construction is the Manhattan school’s satellite campus in the Chinese port city of Tianjin, just an hour from Beijing, the seat of the

The Mean Girl Senate and the Cuccinelli Nomination

The do-nothing Republican Senate, which cannot repeal Obamacare, secure the border, defund Planned Parenthood, or even take more than one vote to bar infanticide, has proven itself shockingly adept at one thing: going into overdrive to block the Trump nominees they personally dislike. Witness the long knives that came out against Ken Cuccinelli, currently Trump’s

A Great Awakening to the Fight Is Upon Us

Last week in a dinner speech at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., Princeton professor Robert George had some advice for social and religious conservatives: “You must fight.” It was an exhortation that does him no good in the academic world. A distinguished Ivy League scholar and teacher isn’t supposed to talk about the “culture
