The Anti-Trump Tide Recedes

The long-awaited de-escalation of Washington’s war with Trump seems finally to be happening. Prior to the president’s trip to the Middle East and Europe, the anti-Trump media was abuzz with intimations of “impeachment territory,” (the ludicrous phrase of David Gergen, who served President Reagan and President Clinton well, but may have contracted some

How Rex Tillerson and John Kerry Exemplify the Ethos of their Respective Administrations

Another day, another spasmodic Trump-inspired fit at the Washington Post. Can a newspaper suffer from Tourette’s syndrome? NBC’s Andrea Mitchell was not pleased that Rex Tillerson rode his Harley Davidson in the annual Rolling Thunder event without prior notice to the media. Tweeting on behalf of the riled-up media, Mitchell “griped”: [email protected] announces

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

Finally, a Real Man in the White House to Confront Challenge of Middle East Peace

Hang onto your seats, folks. The mentally deranged Left is about to erupt yet once more in one of their echolaliac fits they call reporting. Donald Trump has called Mahmoud Abbas a liar, so here it inevitably comes: What? Unheard of! Disgraceful! Unpresidential. He’s not fit to be President! IMPEACH HIM! Trump not

To Hell in a Handmaid’s Basket

Unlike Norm Macdonald, I enjoyed Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale. But then again, I’m a sucker for dystopian stories. From Animal Farm, 1984, Fahrenheit 451 and Brave New World, to Kafka’s The Trial, dystopian narrative plumbs the visceral fear that individuals have in response to the rise of the modern state, especially as the

Fake Law by Fake Judges

Brazen judges openly legislating from the bench are confirming the widely-held public perception that activist courts are out of control. As a lawyer practicing for three decades in the plaintiff-friendly stronghold of California, within the jurisdiction of the notorious Ninth Circuit, I witnessed many instances of judges—state and federal—slanting their decisions against disfavored

Fox News Chooses the Millennials (And Gets It Wrong)

We all know the stereotypical Fox News viewer (at least as the Mainstream Media presents them in pop culture): older, bourgeois, angry, white, male (think Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino). To be sure, elderly Baby Boomers of a particular race and socio-economic standing do comprise a large share of Fox News’ traditional audience.

Why Chicago Is Sinking Fast

Last week I was one of a dozen panelists brought together at an event in Chicago to answer the question, “What should we expect from public education and what can families do to help their local schools achieve that promise?” I expected a lively conversation about the goals of public education and how

How the Comey Affair Will Be a Decisive Victory for the President

If played correctly, the psychotic explosion of the Democrats and their allies in the jackal press over the Comey dismissal and his alleged memo can become a decisive victory for the president. The Mueller nomination, a hybrid arrangement that will be a supplementary investigation with the FBI, will push the question into a
