Trump loses Congress on Russia

A Party Out of Ideas

Clown show follies with the Times

(Scott Johnson) When three Somali Minnesotans went to trial in Minneapolis last year on terrorism charges, the New York Times skipped the proceedings. Times reporter Jack Healy arrived in town just in time for the verdicts. Healy’s article...Show More Summary

No Groping, Damn It!

(John Hinderaker) American liberals want to take in lots of Islamic refugees from the Middle East and Africa, presumably because that policy has been so successful in Europe. This is, of course, a dubious premise, as we have noted many times. Show More Summary

Bringing literature to the masses, Mayor de Blasio Style

(Paul Mirengoff) My conservative cousin from New York has been following New York City mayors since the days of Robert F. Wagner, Jr. I think John Lindsey remains his nominee for the worst of the lot, but the current mayor seems to be closing in fast. Show More Summary

(Paul Mirengoff) Ted Leonsis owns the Washington Wizards and the Washington Capitals. The hockey team has done quite well under his leadership, though a deep playoff run has eluded it. The basketball team has often been mediocre or worse, though it now is among the better NBA squads. Show More Summary

False Equivalence at the Associated Press

(John Hinderaker) Following a day of violence in Israel, the Associated Press headlines: “3 Palestinians, 3 Israelis killed in violence over holy site.” It’s even-steven, right? More of that cycle of violence we keep hearing about, with equal fault on both sides. Show More Summary

Can Sea Monsters Be Far Off?
