Sean Penn's Household Gods

In case you’re in the market, Sean Penn’s 1.4-acre estate overlooking the Pacific is on the market, and Forbes offers a peek inside. Note the artwork. “Che chic” is très chic – in the luxury of one’s $7 billion Malibu mansion.?

New, Improved Jim Geraghty

I’m delighted to inform everyone of Jim Geraghty’s new role at NR. After more than ten years of blogging, including on two different continents (Jim is perhaps the country’s only political blogger who once worked from Turkey), Jim is giving up “spot” duty. Show More Summary

Really? We Can Pencil It In Already? Clinton-Castro 2016?

If you’re not subscribed to the Morning Jolt newsletter, you can do so here. A taste of today’s edition… Really? We Can Pencil It In Already? Clinton-Castro 2016? If you were a clear-thinking Democrat, this is the sort of news that would...Show More Summary

ABC Veteran on Stephanopoulos

If you were wondering what a former editor of small newspapers thought about the George Stephanopoulos situation, you have my piece from today. If you were wondering what a top reporter who spent 15 years at ABC thinks, I give you Chris...Show More Summary

Poetry

THE PROPHETIC ANT I saw the fabled colors, coming down. Gold cannot hold. Red sinks like lead. Time’s green kingdom will lose its crown, And dry leaves drag a desert through the town. — This poem appears in the June 1, 2015, print issue of National Review.

This Iraq Charade Is Getting a Little Ridiculous

Marco Rubio and Chris Wallace had a vigorous back and forth this morning on Fox News Sunday, centered around whether Rubio would describe the invasion of Iraq as a “mistake.” Quizzing GOP candidates about their views on the Iraq WarShow More Summary

Teaching Conformity

Last November, Brendan O’Neill wrote an article for the London Spectator on what he called the ‘Stepford students’. It still seems timely. To give you a flavor, it begins like this: Have you met the Stepford students? They’re everywhere. Show More Summary

Disability Rights Champions Against Assisted Suicide

People who may only casually follow the assisted-suicide debate may think — because this is how the media report their stories — that the only real objectors are the Catholic Church and pro-lifers. To the contrary. Some of the most effective campaigners...Show More Summary

U.S. Boots on Syrian Ground: ISIS Leader Killed in Raid

United States Special Operations forces killed a top commander of the Islamic State in Syria on Friday. In addition to participating in terrorist operations, the commander, Abu Sayyaf, managed the jihadist organization’s oil and gas commerce. Show More Summary

The Magic Projectile Theory?

I think these reports about a projectile potentially hitting the train before the crash are interesting. But I just don’t get how this could have caused the crash. Sure, in movies a well-thrown brick breaks the window and disables the engineer, causing him to fall on the gas pedal. Show More Summary

Repopulating Detroit—with Syrians!

In 2013 Jeb Bush called for admitting more immigrants to “repopulate” Detroit: It just seems to me that maybe if you open up our doors in a fair way and unleashed the spirit of peoples’ hard work, Detroit could become in really short order, one of the great American cities again. Show More Summary

The French Example

I wish to commend David French’s column on the homepage. It has a long title, but a title that does the job: “Republican Presidential Contenders’ Cowardly, After-the-Fact Opposition to the Iraq War.” I will say what David says, in far...Show More Summary

The Candidate Named Bush in a Post-Bush Party

I think the Iraq question that loomed so large this week can’t tell us much about the foreign policy of the respective candidates or their judgment under pressure. It really has more to do, in my view, with signaling that they are comfortable with the fact that the GOP is now a post-Bush party (or a post-W party, to be more precise). Show More Summary

Something I Learned This Week

Stingy, cruel, budget-cutting, deregulating, privatizing Republicans cause Amtrak engineers to go more than 100 m.p.h. around curves when the speed limit is 50. How odd.

Fox News vs. NYT

John: Judy Miller makes a similar comment about the openness of rightwing as opposed leftwing media in her new book (The Story: A Reporter’s Journey) with regard to her post-New York Times position as a Fox News contributor: When Jason...Show More Summary

George Stephanopoulos’s Clinton Foundation Hypocrisy Is Staggering

The problem with George Stephanopoulos’s Clinton-gate mess is that his own words prove him to be both a bully and a hypocrite, as well as abjectly unethical. Set aside the fact that — if not outed — he would likely never have informed...Show More Summary

Boston Bomber Gets the Death Penalty

After considering various mitigating circumstances put forth by Dzokhar Tsarnaev’s defense, a twelve-person jury in Boston sentenced him to death today. From the Boston Globe’s Kevin Cullen, who’s covered the trial for months now: “We...Show More Summary

Varoufakis: "I wish we had never entered this monetary union”

Talks on Greece’s financial future drag on, but, as always, the most important number to watch is the cash flowing in and out of Greek banks (although the fact that the economy has slipped back, yet again, into recession won’t help). Bloomberg...Show More Summary
