To the editor: It’s unbelievable that 16 years after the 2000 presidential election, political commentators like Jonah Goldberg still make the fatuous claim that Green Party nominee Ralph Nader was responsible for Democrat Al Gore losing Florida and the presidency. ("Could we see a four-way race...
(May 28, 2016 07:04 AM, by Alberto Mingardi) Jonah Goldberg has an excellent post on "Social Darwinism", in which he builds on a potential imprecision by Deirdre McCloskey, who published a piece in the Wall Street Journal abridging her new, wonderful book "Bourgeois Equality". Goldberg singles out this... (0 COMMENTS)
From the diaries: I find a few adult beverages do help mitigate things…Drink Responsibly (and don’t go for the heroin) Jonah Goldberg lays out a well reasoned (and well written) case of why he is not voting for Donald Trump. Some of you will definitely disagree, but this is one of those, read the whole thing articles. Show More Summary
This may come as a shock, but not all of the movie ideas Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg come up with emerge out of major sessions of smoking marijuana. But the writers behind "This Is the End" and "Superbad" admit that their upcoming R-rated...Show More Summary
Hillsdale College has produced an excellent video for its Dow Journalism Program, which I run. You’ll see some familiar faces from the National Review circle: Jonah Goldberg and Jillian Melchior (plus me), as well as a few friends: James Rosen of Fox News, Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal, and more.

Jonah Goldberg, 10 May 2016: For conservatives, party unity is another way of saying “suicide pact.” I will never vote for Hillary Clinton because she believes things I can never support. I will never vote for Donald Trump because he’s...
WHEN THE WILL TO POWER DERIVES FROM VICTIMHOOD, WE GET HEADLINES LIKE THIS: Photoshop Bullying is Evidently a Thing Now. Headline via Jonah Goldberg, who noted last year, “We’re in a weird Nietzschian transition moment where victimhood is the way you assert your will to power.”
You will all be greatly relieved to know that Jonah Goldberg’s interns have a solution to The People’s dangerous reliance on Big Government, which is destroying everything even as you read these words. Given the hollowing out of civil society — caused by family breakdown, economic dislocation, declining volunteerism and church attendance, Not mentioned: Sinecures […]
Remember Superbad? The coming-of-age teen comedy starring Jonah Hill and Michael Cera that dominated theaters across America during the summer of 2007? Seth Rogen co-wrote the film with his frequent collaborator Evan Goldberg, and upon its release, Superbad became quickly noteworthy for, let's just say, its use of highly colorful jokes. ... More »
In a fantastic piece that it’s highly recommended for news junkies and those interested in the media, National Review senior editor Jonah Goldberg took on MSNBC’s Morning Joe and their infatuation with Donald Trump as “unwatchable” and full of “condescending snootiness” that rivals the cast of Mean Girls.
To the editor: Jonah Goldberg is still whaling away at Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump. Now he is trying to pressure Indiana Gov. Mike Pence into endorsing Sen. Ted Cruz. ("It's time for Indiana Gov. Mike Pence to make up his mind if he's for or against Donald Trump," Opinion,...

SOCIALISM ISN’T ABOUT ECONOMICS…IT’S RELIGION, NOT MATH,” Jonah Goldberg writes in his latest G-File. “Sanders isn’t motivated by racism or anything like it. He’s motivated by nostalgia and bad metaphors. And so are his mostly lily-white, affluent, fans. ‘We’ll always have Sweden’ is no less a fantasy than Rousseau’s ‘We’ll always have Sparta.’” Though of […]
To the editor: Like most of his conservative brethren, Jonah Goldberg believes raising the minimum wage is a bad idea because employers will simply lay off workers. ("Though well-intentioned, a $15 minimum wage is as bad an idea as Trump's border wall," Opinion, April 19) This economic mantra has...
UNISEX GLoP: In their latest podcast, Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz take on the left’s war on bathrooms. Love the Photoshop atop the post.
Jonah Goldberg: It seems pretty obvious to me that the rage I hear from Trump supporters when I say they’re wrong stems from a kind of insecurity or resentment. Simply put, they want to be validated. It’s an awfully similar response to what we hear constantly on college campuses from the delicate little flowers who […]
VANITY FAIR ON FAMED ARCHITECT PHILIP JOHNSON’S HIDDEN NAZI PAST. Not all that hidden, particularly in Johnson’s later years and after his death. Back in April of 2008, inspired by Jonah Goldberg’s then-new Liberal Fascism, I shot an early Silicon Graffiti video segment while I was still my getting video chops together titled “The Wonderful, […]
To the editor: I can't ever remember agreeing with Jonah Goldberg, and I won't break the string with his column on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) emerging as the Republican Party's presidential nominee from a contested convention. ("Ted Cruz isn't Donald Trump, so he's good enough," Opinion, April 12)...
