I agree wholeheartedly with my colleague Jonah Goldberg. Social conservatives (especially Christian conservatives) should unequivocally condemn Donald Trump’s now almost-certain affair with a porn star. They should speak with the exact...Show More Summary
Jonah Goldberg’s podcast “The Remnant” is always entertaining and well worth your time. But the latest episode is special for a couple of reasons. First, Jonah’s guest Charles Murray is a longtime Patterico favorite. Second, the intro and outro music may sound familiar to longtime readers. Click here to listen.

To the editor: Jonah Goldberg makes a telling analogy between Hollywood insiders who knew about Harvey Weinstein and other accused sexual harassers and assaulters but kept quiet, and Washington insiders who know the truth about the Trump White House but do their best to keep it under wraps. (“One...

To the editor: Jonah Goldberg touts President Trump’s first-year achievements, starting with “a record number of judicial appointments, including a Supreme Court justice, [and] the defeat of Islamic State.” (“Trump's end-of-year accomplishment list isn't that skimpy. Of course, the party's in charge...
Jonah Goldberg: Contrary to what many predicted, President Trump’s end-of-year accomplishment list isn’t that skimpy. That’s an analytical observation. For many, particularly liberals and Democrats, Trump’s first year hasn’t been merely bad. It’s a great evil, a grievous wound to the American body politic. But even that is a kind of partisan tribute to what’s […]
To the editor: Jonah Goldberg insists that socialism is disastrous and hard to reconcile with democracy. (“Venezuela’s a disaster. Yet socialism’s more popular than ever,” Opinion, Dec. 19). The world, however, has many examples of both successful socialistic democracies and painfully undemocratic...
JONAH GOLDBERG: Venezuela’s a disaster. Yet socialism’s more popular than ever. Why the disconnect? For conservatives of my ilk, the most obvious answer is that, for the left, socialism itself is never to blame. One of my favorite guilty pleasures is the Socialist Party of Great Britain’s Twitter feed, which insists daily that the socialist […]

WHY ARE DEMOCRAT-DOMINATED INDUSTRIES SUCH CESSPITS OF PREDATION? New York’s TV industry riddled by harassment accusations. As Jonah Goldberg wrote on Wednesday, “The stories of sexual harassment at Fox were entirely newsworthy and legitimate on the merits. But not because Fox is ‘right wing.’ Yet it seems fairly obvious to me that the press enjoyed […]

JONAH GOLDBERG: The real problem with the new liberal awakening about Bill Clinton isn’t the hypocrisy, it’s the historical revisionism. Read this article from the New York Observer — if you can stomach it — titled, “New York Supergals Love That Naughty Prez.” They covered all the weighty issues, e.g., is oral sex cheating? And […]
There’s been a bit of a kerfuffle going on over the accusations of treason against the purveyors of the deal that sent ownership of Uranium to Vladimir Putin. Jonah Goldberg is up first. My real objection is to the way people on late-night shout shows and talk radio blithely and irresponsibly throw around claims that […]
