Trump Should Keep Shaming the Justice Department on Twitter

The Justice Department has taken the blindfold off Lady Justice so it can protect its political allies and punish its enemies. Courts and Congress have been powerless to shame them. If a few tweets are causing mild discomfort inside the department, the president should keep tweeting about this as often as possible.

The Once and Future Scandal

Soon the worm may turn. The real scandal is back on the horizon, and at last, we may learn that no one is above the law—most certainly not a group of smug and mediocre apparatchiks who assumed they had the moral right to destroy a presidential candidate and later an elected president.

The intersection of journalism and leaking in the nation’s capital, far from being in the service of a pursuit of truth or a check upon powerful interests, is simply another mechanism for the elite to consolidate power.

Revisiting Rosenstein’s Cover-up of Crossfire Hurricane

People Like Us

The liberal elite are in the midst of a crisis of legitimacy. In President Trump’s fate lies their fate. If he survives until November 2020, and proceeds to win reelection, the cognitive dissonance will be excruciating.

Like Robert Mueller before him, it was incumbent on Horowitz once and for all to make clear in no uncertain terms that the hateful delusions about Donald Trump have absolutely no basis in reality, to assuage the ugly passions dividing America. Like Mueller, Horowitz failed to deliver.

Foggy Bottom Has the Sadz
(and That’s a Very Good Thing)

The real “crisis” for former State Department bureaucrats and their colleagues who have been recycled back to the Ivy League campuses from whence they came is not that Trump poses an existential threat to national security—it’s that he poses a legitimate threat to their professional sinecures.
