President Oprah? It Sort of Makes Sense

Conservative Policy, Populist Attitude

Addicted to the Apocalypse
We are in love with the apocalypse.
Doomsday thinking justifies anything. If Armageddon lies just beyond the horizon, then all measures are worthwhile in staving it off. Armageddon simplifies the complex. It makes all decisions clear. Judeo-Christian moral qualms are ...
The ‘Toxic Masculinity’ Smear

Conservatism’s Sad and Ugly Transformation into Trumpism
Another week, another Donald-being-Donald moment.
For many years in baseball, Indians, Red Sox, and Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez became a running joke in the fan community. That wasn’t because he couldn’t hit — he was a tremendous hitter. It’...

Our Political Masters Show Their Hand
It wasn’t shocking news that Barack Obama’s FBI refused on Tuesday to recommend indictment for felonious former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

Andy Griffith’s death today at the age of 86 reminds us of a time when television was cleaner and simpler. Family values, small-town values were American values, not subject to controversy and stereotyping. Andy Griffith was, for all intents and ...
The Screen Actors Guild awards last night were essentially uneventful, except for two interesting points. First point: Jean Dujardin beat George Clooney for his performance in The Artist, which I hear is stunning. I’m sure he’s ...
The Golden Globes: An Ugly Peek into the Real Hollywood
The Golden Globes are always a mockery. Everyone knows that the Hollywood Foreign Press Correspondents Association is deeply corrupt. Members vote largely based on who pays them off. The HPCA is actually at the center of a lawsuit by a ...
Hollywood Is Out of Touch
I wrote last week about how out of touch Hollywood is with mainstream American values. Here are five shows from the new fall season that demonstrate that disconnect in action:
The Playboy Club (NBC): Who thought that the ...
What’s the Point of Labeling Trump a Racist?

Trump Reverses the Obama Doctrine on Iran

It looks as though he’s about to pass his tax-reform plan, complete with repeal of Obamacare’s individual mandate. He announced earlier this month that the official policy of the United States ...
The John Conyers Abdication

Men, Stop Virtue-Signaling and Return to Rules

According to a new poll from Brookings Institution, nearly one in five college students support the use of violence against speakers who say “offensive and hurtful things”; more than half agree that shouting ...
President Trump’s entire career has been built on one foundational myth: that he is tougher than his competitors. Trump positions himself as a knife fighter more than willing to wield the weapon. He’s a brutal negotiator, he says, ...
Political Violence Is Not Okay
America can survive crappy ideas.
America can survive nasty statues.
America can’t survive normalization of political violence.
That should be the takeaway over the last two weeks. The latest round of racial and political recriminations began with a horrifying ...

Whataboutism and Misdirection: The Latest Tools of Dumb Political Combat
All that matters now is misdirection.

Trump’s ‘Hire American, Buy American’ Is Redistribution by Another Name

To Promise Free Things Is to Lie
Democratic politics is riven by a central conflict: the conflict between truth and desire. People generally want things; they want government to give them those things. Conservatives aren’t wrong when they say they can’t compete with Santa Claus — ...
Why We Should Ignore Trump’s Rhetoric
Take Trump “seriously but not literally.” That’s a piece of wisdom coined by reporter Salena Zito, and it’s used by Trump’s defenders to brush off whatever bout of rhetorical diarrhea has plagued his Twitter account lately. There’...

EDITOR’S NOTE: This piece is a response to “For Love of Country,” the cover story of the February 20, 2017, issue of National Review.

Is Donald Trump a Pragmatist?
What will Donald Trump be?
It’s too early to tell. For now, Trump’s a Rorschach test, an ink blot — he has multiple positions on the same issues, advisers with conflicting worldviews, and no practical experience in government upon ...
The Trials of Saint Hillary
Hillary Clinton is perfect.
That, apparently, is the Left’s new line on their nominee. It was one thing to label her a corrupt old crone when she was running against newfangled 1930s near-octogenarian Bernie Sanders. It was another thing ...
The Media Will Learn to Love Trump in Due Time
He is the worst major-party candidate in history.

He’s a brutal sexist who wants to return women to the subservience of ...
You Can’t Pretend Trump’s Flaws Away

The Protected Classes Must Not Hear Harambe Jokes—Or Anything Else ‘Offensive’

The Left Wins because It Fights Politics on the Field of Morality

Trump’s Anti-Semitic Supporters
I was wrong.
I’ve spent most of my career arguing that anti-Semitism in the United States is almost entirely a product of the political Left. I’ve traveled across the country from Iowa to Texas; I’ve rarely seen ...
The Oscars: This Year, the Cult of Celebrity, Not Political Correctness
This year’s Oscars was a boring mélange of warmed-over jokes from milquetoast host Ellen Degeneres and uncontroversial speeches from the Oscar winners. And that was a welcome respite from the normal Oscar tendency toward political controversy.
Nonetheless, the ...
Perhaps no voice is better known to Americans than that of Andy Williams, who passed away on Tuesday. Williams, of course, was thesinger who most famously covered Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer’s iconic “Moon River,” featured in Breakfast at ...
This year’s Oscars were just the latest in a seemingly endless trend of boring, self-important evenings on which we are supposed to be reminded of the “magic of movies,” only to be reminded how shallow the movie business is. ...
The Oscars: Has Anybody Seen These Movies?
The Oscar nominations are out, and here’s my immediate predictions: ratings will be down dramatically this year. How do I know? Because nobody has ever seen any of these movies. Matt Drudge, who always has his finger on the ...

Emmys Reveal an Out-of-Touch Hollywood
This year’s Emmy Awards once again highlighted the decline of traditional network television. Having Jane Lynch host was mistake #1. Lynch is Ellen Degeneres without the charm. She is nasty and obnoxious, and makes reference to her sexuality during primetime ...
