Charlie Dent’s Commitment to Corporate Welfare Is Stronger Than Ever

While Republicans are failing to repeal Obamacare and implement tax reform, they are nonetheless very effective at bending the rules and walking all over their promise to return to regular order so that they can promote the interests...Show More Summary

Trump vs. Sessions, Rosenstein, and Mueller

If the attorney general isn’t doing his job properly; if the deputy attorney general is hopelessly conflicted; if the special prosecutor is pursuing a witch hunt... if all of this is true, then shouldn’t the man in charge of the federal...Show More Summary

Who Knew May 18, 2010 Was the Day It Became That Much Harder to Reform Two Entitlement Programs?

That was the day Rand Paul won the Republican primary for senate in Kentucky, defeating Trey Grayson, who wasn’t conservative enough for Paul. Whatever may be Grayson’s other faults, he would probably be a “yes” on the health-care bill...Show More Summary

Let’s Play by Nancy MacLean’s Rules

As long as Duke professor Nancy MacLean continues to defend her awful, misleading screed Democracy in Chains, she will richly deserve counterattacks like this one by GMU economics professor Don Boudreaux, “Let’s Play by Nancy MacLean’s Rules,” on his always enlightening Cafe Hayek blog.

Macron: L’état c’est lui

If there’s one thing of which we can be sure about 2017, it is that one of its more paradoxical moments was the election of Emmanuel Macron to the French presidency. Writing in Law and Liberty, Guillaume de Thieulloy: Macron succeeded mainly because he was considered “new”: young, without any political experience, without any electoral mandate. Show More Summary

‘The Looming Republican Disgrace’

I wrote a dyspeptic column today on Republicans and Obamacare repeal: At least Collins, an ideological outlier in the Republican Conference, has been consistent. She voted against the repeal-only bill in 2015, and the GOP leadership never thought she was gettable. Show More Summary

What Does Trashing Sessions Get Trump?

Today the White House touted the accomplishments of the administration in the first six months, and the list included: “Attorney General Jeff Sessions implemented new charging guidelines to end catch-and-release policies.” Of course, the president’s not so focused on that part of Sessions record lately.

Republicans should abandon the process of health care reform and move on to tax reform, said Charles Krauthammer. “It’s going to be suicidal to go ahead with the vote next week.” Krauthammer explained why Republicans should move ahead with tax reform: I think they have a good chance of working something out on tax reform.

Assisted Suicide IS the "Harmful Effect"

I know that Alexandra is not implying otherwise, but to say that she hopes that “harmful effects” of the Washigton DC law, such as increased suicides–I assume other than of the assisted variety–or coercion will not occur, is to lose sight of the problem that assisted suicide itself is the harmful effect. Assisted Suicide IS the "Harmful Effect"

Assisted-Suicide Measure Takes Effect in Washington, D.C.

A new measure took effect on Monday in the nation’s capital, allowing doctors and pharmacies to provide terminally ill patients with life-ending medication. Washington, D.C.’s mayor signed the Death with Dignity Act last December, but the measure wasn’t implemented until this week. City law now allows D.C. Show More Summary

Engels Returns to Manchester (2)

I posted something last night about the decision to put up a Soviet era statue to Friedrich Engels in Manchester. The statue was first unveiled as part of a live film event called Ceremony. Friedrich Engels – philosopher, writer, radical thinker – is coming back home. Show More Summary

Two Pianos (Three Keyboards)

At The New Criterion, I have a post about a piano: specifically, a piano with two keyboards, the kind designed by Emánuel Moór, a Hungarian of yore. The piano was given to Gunnar Johansen, a Danish-born pianist who worked at the University of Wisconsin. Show More Summary

Leftists are notorious for their lack of a sense of humor. Any joke might set one of them off because “progressivism” keeps them constantly on edge, looking for any way to attack a perceived enemy.
