Looking for Blunt Feedback About NRO

I’m looking for your feedback about NR’s website — as a technical, rather than an editorial, proposition. I’ve put together a feedback form here, and I’d appreciate it if you’d fill it in. Please be as honest and blunt as necessary (the...Show More Summary

David Axelrod's Odd Suggestion to Hillary: Skip the Last Debate!

Sure, Hillary Clinton’s in good shape both nationally and in state polls. But is she so far ahead that she can phone it in for the rest of the way? Former Obama chief strategist David Axelrod floated a truly bizarre idea this weekend,...Show More Summary

UNBELIEVABLE: CNN Host Blames Trump for Bombing of GOP Office (VIDEO)

Combine the Leftist Love of Power with the Hatred of Dissent . . .

Leftists love to wield power and they’re usually quite intolerant of people who disagree with their plans to transform and improve the world. Put the two together and you get some appalling abuses of governmental authority. One particularly egregious case recently came to my attention, Bennie v. Show More Summary

Hillary Clinton: Revealing the Fraud She Is (VIDEO)

The Wikileaks e-mail release has been nearly ignored by the media. As National Review  already reported, there is more damning evidence of corruption and fraud than we even knew. The latest evidence shows the depth of Hillary Clinton’s deception on everything from her e-mail server to immigration policy. Show More Summary

Peace Prize, &c.

On the homepage today, I have an essay about this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, awarded to Colombia’s president, Juan Manuel Santos. I put this decision in historical context. (I once spent a fair amount of time on the Nobel Peace Prize,...Show More Summary

The Accusers

Unless he was going to confess and throw himself on the mercy of the court (and it’s kind of late for that), Trump had no alternative but deny, deny, deny. Of course, the denials are a little tinny given that he was caught on tape boasting that he does this sort of thing as a general matter. Show More Summary

Bob Dylan and the Sound of Music

Bob Dylan writes but not for the page. On their own, standing apart from his artful and often soulful delivery of them, the words to his songs fall as flat as the screen on which you can read them. True, they can please by stirring your memory of the songs as you’ve heard him perform them. Show More Summary

The Unshackling, Cont.

It would be hard to think of a better way for Trump to demonstrate how thoroughly he has rejected his brief “pivot” of mid-August than literally taking apart a TelePrompTer. (Watch the clip if you haven’t seen it. Trump is nothing if not an entertaining performer.)      Trump Dismantles TelePrompTer

A Postmodern NFL

In an essay that could come right out of 1984, Washington Post Ministry of Truth writers Drew Harwell and Rick Maese struggle to explain the abrupt erosion of the NFL’s televised audiences. They manage to cite every conceivable longer-term...Show More Summary

The 2016 Cubs: One Of The Best Defensive Teams Since 1900

As the Chicago Cubs kick off the National League Championship Series tonight against the Dodgers, there is great hope in Cub-land for this year’s edition finally breaking the franchise’s 108-year drought since last winning the World Series, or at least its 71-year drought since last appearing in the World Series.

From The Office of Jonah Goldberg

In Friday’s Goldberg File ”News”letter, Jonah Goldberg stated, in a fit of writerly pique, that he will be voting Evan McMullin. There’s some confusion about whether or not Goldberg has “unendorsed” the Sweet Meteor of Death, AKA SMOD. Show More Summary

Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers Must Promote Abortion

It is abundantly easy to get an abortion in California. How easy? My radical state is so intent that no unwanted pregnancy be carried to term that it allows nurse practitioners to kill fetuses. But some babies escape the abortion maw because of pro-life pregnancy counseling centers. Show More Summary

Justice Ginsburg Apologizes for Kaepernick Comments after Backlash from the Left

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg apologized Friday for describing San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the national anthem as “dumb and disrespectful.” “Barely aware of the incident or its purpose, my comments were inappropriately dismissive and harsh,” Ginsburg said.

Yes, Each Day Can Be Worse than Yesterday

The Washington Press Corps Is So Polite
