The Worst of Times Meets the Best of America

From the first Morning Jolt of the week: Irma, the Southeast’s Unwanted Houseguest The good news is Hurricane Irma is weakening. The bad news is that it has inflicted a heck of a lot of damage on Florida, and it’s not done yet. Hurricane...Show More Summary

Goldberg Mère et Fils, from the Archives

On the homepage today, we have a G-File, which I recommend, as always. I have something apropos. In anticipation of a move — National Review is going to a new building, for the first time in 21 years — we have cleaned out our offices. Show More Summary

Here's What Defenders of Campus Kangaroo Courts Won't Tell You

It’s Betsy DeVos day here at NR. I’ve got a piece up on the homepage detailing how critics of campus due process rely on junk science and sometimes even sheer malice to prop up failed Obama-era policies, and our editors have expressed their own support for reforming campus Title IX prosecutions.

Senator Franken Smears Alliance Defending Freedom with ‘Hate Group’ Label

During Wednesday’s judicial confirmation hearing for 7th Circuit Court of Appeals nominee Amy Barrett, the Notre Dame law professor came under fire from several Democratic senators. While anti-Catholic comments and questions from California...Show More Summary

‘The press has been incredible.’

That’s what Trump told Nancy Pelosi about the coverage of their debt limit-deal, according to the New York Times today. This gets to the point I was making in this column: you can either given as a populist-conservative, or you can care deeply about you press coverage. It’s very hard to do both.

The Times Forgets to ID Sen. Menendez as a Democrat in Report on Bribery Trial

Nowhere in the New York Times’ 1,300-word article on Senator Bob Menendez’s bribery trial, as originally published earlier this week, was there mention of the senator’s party affiliation. Because Menendez is a Democrat, critics of the paper were quick to point out that the Times’ omission is indicative of its political bias. Show More Summary

Re: 'Failed System'

I’m following up on John J. Miller’s timely post, regarding Secretary DeVos’s welcome speech yesterday. That speech was welcome because it announced a major change in the Obama-era Education Department policy on how to deal with accusations...Show More Summary

Don't McDonaldize the University

I don’t like the way “McDonalds” has become sort of an epithet, such as in snide references to “McJobs” and “McMansions,” which imply hostility to hard work and earned success. But there is something to be said for using it as a epithet...Show More Summary

What ‘News Gathering’ Looks Like at the New York Times

Allegations of leftist bias in the media are often difficult to prove because of the lack of hard evidence that a reporter has already made up his or her mind before a story runs. One can examine the resulting story itself, but having...Show More Summary

Feinstein vs. Barrett

My new Bloomberg View column concerns how Democrats are distorting the words of Amy Coney Barrett: At first glance, Senator Dianne Feinstein’s criticism of Amy Coney Barrett, a nominee to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, sounds like a nasty swipe at the prospective judge’s Catholic faith.

Steve Bannon, the Catholic Church and Immigration.

Michael Mukasey is one of the outstanding lawyers in the country. He was a federal judge in New York and then went into private practice. During this time, President Bush (43) asked Mukasey to be attorney general. After that term, Mukasey...Show More Summary

Trial Lawyers Try to Take a Bite Out of Subway; Now Regret It

A law firm thought it had an easy case when a photo showed a Subway “footlong” that a customer had purchased was less than 12 inches. So they cooked up a class-action suit, hoping to extract a hefty settlement amount from Subway. ToShow More Summary

Get Me a Shrink

In 1989, there was a movie title: “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.” Some people noted that this codified, or at least illustrated, a slip in language: It was not “I Shrank the Kids” but “I Shrunk.” I thought of this when looking at our homepage,...Show More Summary

Salman the Seer, Sort Of

Salman Rushdie gave a public interview at the New York Public Library last night. His latest book, The Golden House, has been getting a lot of attention — not just because he’s Salman Rushdie, but also because the book contains, as a...Show More Summary

Ex-Im Cronies: 0; Pro-Market Advocates: 1

After the Export-Import Bank’s charter was reauthorized at the end of 2015, it was still unable to function at its full crony potential.
