JONAH GOLDBERG: Pro-Business or Pro-Market: The GOP Can’t Have It Both Ways Anymore. Running hard against cronyism would be a strong electoral position for the GOP. But then you’d have to be against cronyism.
KEVIN WILLIAMSON: The Brendan Eich case brings out the nature of liberal fascism. Jonah Goldberg, call your office.
Yesterday on FOX News, Jonah Goldberg of National Review pointed out that Obama has no political interest in working with Republicans on a budget. Obama has reduced the issue to elementary school taunts by calling the House Republican budget a
Good piece by Jonah Goldberg noting the press' studious lack of interest in the motives of Democratic malefactors. [S]o far no reporter has raised the possibility that Yee supported tighter restrictions on guns in order to keep gun prices high...
JONAH GOLDBERG: Leland Yee, the Kochs, and the Press: There’s no journalistic skepticism about the motives of those on the left.
Wondering about the models for the cultural criticism generally favored by today’s conservatives?

Prager University: The Bigger the Government, the Smaller the Citizen As Jonah Goldberg has pointed out unlike your family, friends, or neighbors the government cannot love you. Nor can the government love other people on your behalf. That's one reason...

Right-wing columnist Jonah Goldberg slams Obama for expressing support for a 'nuclear free world'-- which was what Reagan said too.
(Steven Hayward) Here’s the last 25 minutes or so of Jonah Goldberg last week here in Boulder (the first two segments, if you missed them, are here), cut into three segments. So pour a mug or goblet of your favorite brew (coffee or otherwise–actually, I recommend the “otherwise” options for Goldberg viewing brew), and enjoy:
(Steven Hayward) I never watch the Oscar telecast; I can’t stand the self-indulgence of Hollywood patting itself on the back, plus the darn thing takes longer than a rain-delayed golf game. So if you’re looking for some alternativeShow More Summary
Jonah Goldberg has a rich broth of a column noting the power of hidden law. I've seen the trend toward complexity in the workplace. Problems which, in the past, would have been resolved by calling someone into an office and saying "Don't do that again" are cranked up into major inquiries and formal actions. Show More Summary
IT'S FRIDAAAAAAAY! Yesterday, Ace wrote about Nazis. So did Jonah Goldberg over at NRO. Eugene Volokh wrote about that American flag ban at a California high school....

Jonah Goldberg watched the NBC Nightly News last night and was unhappy that they didn't devote more time to Obama's delay of the employer mandate. There's a reason for that, of course: it's not really very important and most people don't care about it. Show More Summary
Shorter Jonah Goldberg: “This new Democratic argument about how it’s good that people will no longer be dependent on their current employer for insurance is, apart from the fact that it’s admittedly correct, really dumb. It was, after all, the only thing the ACA was intended to accomplish, how lame is that? ONE SEVENTH OF [...]
Via @rdbrewer4, an interesting post by Jonah Goldberg, using a review of a history of liberalism as a jumping off point for various thoughts. A new book claims that liberalism was born out of the wreckage of progressivism. Progressivism championed...
