Does Being Presidential Matter Anymore?

Ben Shapiro, It’s tempting to view President Trump as the end of the American presidential tradition. It’s difficult to imagine George Washington pondering a future president of the United States tweeting out memes of himself clotheslining a CNN-logoed enemy. It would certainly confuse Abraham Lincoln to see the president jabbering about media enemies’ bloody face-lifts

Targeted Duke Professor Resigns

Jack Kerwick, Administrative witch hunt drives out respected scholar. That, of all people, Barack Obama recently received the Kennedy Library’s “Profile in Courage” award proves that the latter has about as much to do with recognizing courage as the Nobel Peace Prize, of which the former President was also a recipient, has to do with

I Am a Victim of Your Hateful Hate Crimes, You Hate-Criminals

Kurt Schlichter, As a person of absolutely no color who embodies an intersectional reality that includes my utter lack of genderfluidity and my unemployment-questioning, differently-veteraned, and non-pagan experiences, I am totally oppressed by progressivism’s hegemonic power structure.

That’s what blood and children’s tears are for. In Venezuela, the Socialist experiment is going brilliantly. Everything is being nationalized.  Venezuelan bakeries

American Game of Footsie with Saudi Arabia Must End

Rachel Marsden, This isn’t your granddaddy’s Saudi Arabia. For decades, America purchased Saudi oil and mostly ignored the country’s human-rights issues, including the treatment of women as second-class citizens, while the Saudi royals enjoyed the benefits of having a rich, thirsty customer who paid on time. But now, Saudi Arabia has become a liability for

Illegal Aliens vs. Victims of Illegal Aliens at State of the Union

Daniel Greenfield, Everyone has got a date for the State of the Union address. Tom Perez and Keith Ellison will be going together. But some Democrats will be bringing illegal aliens along.. This is the equivalent of lighting up a crack pipe in Congress to make the point that there’s no enforcement.  Of course they’ll

Nancy Pelosi Fears Steve Bannon as ‘Shadow’ National Security Adviser

Mike Lillis reports in The Hill that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (R-CA) fears that White House chief strategist Steve Bannon will “fill the void” left by the resignation of President Donald Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn as a sort of “shadow national security adviser.” From The Hill: Pelosi cheered Flynn’s exodus, saying he
