Trade and Paul Ryan

The latest issue of NR includes an article of mine on the politics of trade, an article that has now been put on our homepage.

Thanks to SCOTUS, Vicious Anti-Christian State Action Is Legal in the Ninth Circuit

Today the Supreme Court declined to hear one of the most extraordinary and plainly vicious anti-Christian cases I’ve ever seen. My friends and colleagues at the Alliance Defending Freedom represent the Stormans family, owner’s of an Olympia, Washington, pharmacy called Ralph’s Thriftway. Show More Summary

Forced to grapple with dissent, the Democratic party continues to splinter. In St. Louis, key Democrats appointed by Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz gathered to create a preliminary draft of the party’s official platform. Show More Summary

Pro-life Optimism after Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt

Pro-lifers have every reason to be disappointed with the Supreme Court’s ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. In the wake of the Kermit Gosnell trial, Texas took the lead in enacting legislation to protect both women and their unborn children. Show More Summary

Snead on the Abortion Case

Whether in a spurt of open-mindedness or by some glorious oversight, CNN asked Notre Dame law professor Carter Snead (a leading intellectual light of the pro-life movement) to offer his views about yesterday’s Court decision on the network’s website.

A Desire for Change Won't Be Enough for Trump to Win

Stephen Moore recently expressed a theory about the election, one I’ve found to be commonly held by Trump supporters who are optimistic about his chances, with the economy that Twitter forces on its users: “If people think our country is going in the right direction they’ll vote for Hillary.

Should Federal Judges Be Impeached for Publicly Repudiating the Constitution?

Over at Slate, Judge Richard A. Posner of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, recently had this to say: I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution,...Show More Summary

Sidney Blumenthal and Media Matters

Sidney Blumenthal is one of those oddly permanent figures in American politics. Starting in the mid-1990s, the journalist has been an enduring presence around the Clinton family, and he is thought to be one of Hillary Clinton’s closest confidants. Show More Summary

Explaining the Primaries

I was nodding along, as usual, with Dan McLaughlin’s article today until the very end. He’s right that Trump’s support was multifaceted, right again that the complaint that an excess of partisanship paved the way for him makes little sense. Show More Summary

Al Qaeda: Kill White People So the Left Doesn't Screw Up the Narrative

This would be hilarious if it didn’t signify how twisted our world has become: Lone wolf jihadists should target white Americans so no one mistakes their terror attacks for hate crimes unrelated to the cause of radical Islam, Al Qaeda...Show More Summary

Pretty Much Every Anti-Brexit Facebook Post in Britain

That ubiquitous anti-Brexit Facebook post, in archetypal form: I am just appalled by what is happening in Britain. I want to live in a country in which people of all viewpoints and backgrounds can live in mutual respect and share their opinions freely. Show More Summary

Brexit and the Counter-Cosmopolitans

For Americans contemplating our peculiar political moment, the lessons of last week’s British vote to exit the EU may have less to do with the outcome than with the nature of the referendum and of the responses to it.   As a general matter, I tend to think that honing sharp opinions about foreign elections is a bad habit to be in.

The Lion Roars

I’m not going to resist the temptation to comment on the Brexit vote. The campaign was fascinating, and I imagine that most observers of politics followed it closely. From the beginning, I leaned towards Leave on sovereignty grounds;...Show More Summary

The Crazy People Have Taken Charge of the Democratic Party

A major part of Hillary Clinton’s sales pitch against Donald Trump is that Trump represents the radical fringe of the GOP, while Hillary represents sane, adult centrism. Certainly the Bernie Sanders voters see her that way, as a centrist...Show More Summary

The Intimidation Game

My new Bookmonger podcast is with Kim Strassel, author of The Intimidation Game: How the Left Is Silencing Free Speech.
