A Note to the GOP: You Ride With Criminals, You Hang With Criminals

There’s some talk that many Republicans in both the Senate and the House are getting wobbly about actually ending Obamacare. Suddenly, it’s “repair”, not replace. …

Trump Humor

Donald Trump should be an easy target for political humorists, but I’ve mostly been disappointed in the quality of the anti-Trump satire. That may be because comedians think he’s a raging conservative, so their jokes based on that theme strike someone like me (who fears Trump is a big-government populist) as senseless. After all, clever […]

Getting to know you

I think we’ll lighten up a bit today, I was out most of yesterday, and didn’t get anything prepared, sometimes life gets in the way, doesn’t it? In any case, back in the forties, the average American GI, didn’t have much idea of what the Brits were like, and it seemed to the War Department […]

Bad candidates = bad results

The Anglo-Saxons are Awake!

Blaming the responsible   And yes, they are fundamentally unserious     Steve Hayward took a look at the beginning of the Berkely riots. Here is what he saw Berkeley still has rent control, but it hasn’t stopped Milo Yiannapoulos from living rent-free in the heads of the left. So in another triumph for his ironic […]

GOP: Obamacare repeal and replace is now retreat and repair

When the members of the new GOP-controlled 115th Congress were sworn-in last month, it included many of the old faces from the old GOP-controlled 114th Congress, along with their old feckless leadership. One area where this is most evident is…

Progressive foolishness

Eugene Robinson’s latest article is proof that there aren’t many great strategists left in the Democratic Party. A topnotch political strategist wouldn’t say “In the two weeks since, Trump has only piled outrage upon outrage, as far as progressives are concerned. He took the first steps toward building his ridiculous wall along the southern border, […]

Sen. Schumer, spoiled brat edition

It’s clear that Sen. Schumer and his leadership team can’t resist acting like spoiled brats. This article offers an unsightly insight into Sen. Schumer’s peevish mindset. According to the article, “Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democratic Senate leaders refused to meet with Judge Neil Gorsuch Thursday. The act appears to be revenge against […]

Democrats’ non-participation trophy

Sen. Hatch didn’t hesitate in changing the Senate Finance Committee rules after Democrats failed to attend a confirmation vote for Steve Mnuchin to be President Trump’s Treasury Secretary and Rep. Tom Price to be President Trump’s HHS Secretary for a second day in a row. This morning, Democrat senators didn’t attend the Senate Environment and […]

The Hysterical Left, and Neil Gorsuch

I seem to have developed some form of flu. It’s rather distracting, so a short one today. In any case, I think Melanie is on to quite a lot here. It was an instructive year, as I watched (and participated in) as Britain discovered the words of the American founders to urge on the Brexit […]

Neil Gorsuch: Next Antonin Scalia . . . or next Anthony Kennedy?

In typical reality show fashion, Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals to fill the open seat on the Supreme Court made vacant by the death of Antonin Scalia last year. According to Trump, this…

The Jacksonian Revolt

We’ve said here often that most Europeans simply misunderstand Americans. That is true, and it is also true that Britons do better than most at understanding us, which is reasonable, given that we sprang as a nation from Brittania’s brow. Walter Russel Mead undertook in Foreign Affairs to explain how Trump arose. I think he gets […]

Trump’s grand slam nominee

In picking Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court, President Trump didn’t hit a home run. Metaphorically speaking, he hit a grand slam in his first major league at-bat. It’s apparent that it’s a grand slam when the NY Times publishes an op-ed gushing about Judge Gorsuch. Neal Katyal’s […]

Obstructionist Dems stage walkout

This morning, Senate Democrats staged a protest walkout of the Finance Committee hearing. Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch had scheduled confirmation votes for Tom Price and Steve Mnuchin. Instead, Democrats proved that they’re incapable of governing. (It’s impossible to govern if you don’t show up, right?) The simple truth is that this walkout essentially ended the […]

How we Got Trump

Mollie Hemingway wrote yesterday in The Federalist about Saying People Can’t Say ‘This Is Why Trump Won’ Is Why Trump Won.

Inexperienced president building inexperienced National Security Council

One of the reasons we were told to vote for Donald Trump last year was that he wasn’t your typical politician; in fact, he wasn’t a politician at all. His political inexperience would give America a president that truly reflected…

Fact-checking the Pi-Press

This article in the Pi-Press is disgusting in its dishonesty. In the article, the ‘reporter’ says that “Trump’s highly controversial order suspends refugee admissions for 120 days and bars all immigration for 90 days of citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries with terrorism concerns: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Those now being barred from […]
