On Arbor Day, Who Will Speak for the Trees?

Dr. Suess’s The Lorax, whence comes the title question, is socialist drivel of the most ignorant sort. But just because Theodore Geisel was a leftist dimwit who described the book as “ straight propaganda ” doesn’t mean trees are bad. Conservatives...Show More Summary

Mike Pence Endorses Ted Cruz — Sort Of

Indiana governor Mike Pence on Friday offered up the most tepid endorsement of the campaign cycle. In an interview with WIBC radio, he announced that he’d be voting for Ted Cruz in Indiana’s primary on Tuesday, which is a make-or-break contest for the Texas senator.  He had a roundabout way of announcing his support.

Judd Gregg's Judgments

Former Republican governor and senator (and Obama Cabinet nominee) Judd Gregg says he could never vote for Senator Cruz (disclosure) because he is someone of “little character.” But he can vote for a guy who brags about his adulteries, tries to kick widows out of their homes, makes fun of disabled people for being disabled, etc. Show More Summary

Trump and the Gender Gap

For several decades, women have been more likely to vote for Democrats than men. A voter’s sex is not particularly predictive of a vote: Race, religion, and marital status matter more. But a gender gap exists across many subgroups. A...Show More Summary

The Labour Party’s Anti-Semitism Problem

The Left defines itself as international. This may explain the otherwise puzzling phenomenon of the Left’s support for Muslim and Islamist causes with which they have nothing in common. It is commonplace, but still strange, to observe...Show More Summary

Is Pence Stepping Up?

I’m told that Indiana Gov. Mike Pence will be on the great Greg Garrison radio show today at 12:06 Eastern to make a “significant announcement.” What that means, I don’t know. But I can only hope it means what I think it means.  Possible Pence Endorsement?

Trump and the "Social Conservative Veto"

David Frum has written a smart article for The Atlantic on Trump and his Republican enemies. You should read it. But I think he is wrong about this: Yet here’s something that traditional ideological conservatives will want to consider: Trump rose by shoving them aside. Show More Summary

Christians, Don't Fall for the 'Compassion' Trap

As I mentioned in my piece on the home page, I’ve been saddened at the number of Christians who either sit out the battle for religious liberty entirely or actively take the other side. In my piece today I tried to address those whoShow More Summary

Smugness and Liberalism

Emmett Rensin had some friendly advice for liberals in a recent essay for Vox: Lose the smugness. I comment on the essay at Bloomberg View, concluding that it misidentifies liberalism’s weakness. Smugness and Liberalism

This week the White House released presidential proclamations for Law Day and Loyalty Day, each observed on May 1.  They are exactly what you would expect from this administration.  The latter proclamation is not about loyalty at all, and the former is all about one of the Warren Court’s signature decisions, Miranda v.

Well, You Couldn’t Capture the Inside-Washington View...

…of the presidential race better than John Boehner’s unapologetically sophomoric take at Stanford where he made it clear that his personal dislike of Ted Cruz trumps everything else: When specifically asked his opinions on Ted Cruz, Boehner made a face, drawing laughter from the crowd. “Lucifer in the flesh,” the former speaker said.

When Librarians Attack

While the Library of Congress does not often become the subject of political disputes, it has seen occasional dust-ups, including a protracted controversy in the late 19th century over the cement used in its construction. Nearly a century later, in 1975, the Library of Congress made news when President Gerald Ford nominated Daniel Boorstin to run it. Show More Summary
