Schumer’s Hypocrisy Soars to New Heights Over Gasoline Prices

May 29, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Displays of political hypocrisy just don’t get any more brazen than the recent press conference by four Senate Democrats criticizing President Trump for soaring gasoline prices.

The Democratic Senate leader, Charles Schumer, claimed that the price increases were “directly” related to “President Trump’s reckless decision to pull out of the Iran deal.” What Schumer didn’t mention was that he had voted against the Iran deal. Senator Robert Menendez, Democrat of New Jersey, also voted against the Iran nuclear deal, and he, too, was at the Capitol Hill press conference denouncing the high gas prices.

Eric Schneiderman’s Fall

May 8, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

It’s hard to remember the fall of a powerful politician in New York that was as swift — and deserved — as the resignation last night of Eric Schneiderman as the state’s attorney general. It followed by only hours a devastating dispatch in the New Yorker disclosing allegations by four women of assaults by Mr. Schneiderman — beatings, at least two death threats, violence racism, and threats to use the power of his office to pursue his prey.

Trump Confounds Critics Who Vowed He’d Soon Resign

April 30, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

President Trump deserves more credit than he has gained for at least one thing — outlasting his critics’ prediction of the length of his tenure.

In a post-election column published in the November 11, 2016, New York Times, David Brooks wrote, “the guy will probably resign or be impeached within a year.”

A ‘Sorry’ Zuckerberg Is Turning to Print As Congress Champs

March 29, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

The legacy news organizations, such as print newspapers, blaming the decline of their businesses on big technology companies like Google and Facebook. The newspapers have gone so far as asking Congress for an antitrust exemption to help them demand money from Google and Facebook for the privilege of providing hyperlinks to their stories.

It’s not only advertising revenue that the newspapers have lost, though they have lost that, by the billions of dollars. It’s the agenda-setting power.

The Relic of Justice Stevens

March 28, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

The Wall Street Journal certainly made short work of Justice John Paul Stevens’ call for repeal of the Second Amendment. The justice, who retired from the Supreme Court in 2010, issued his latest opinion in the New York Times. He called the concerns that animated the Founders to vouchsafe the right to keep and bear arms a “relic of the 18th century.”

Collapse of Credibility In Mainstream Press Puts Burden on Readers

March 20, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

It’s not just President Trump who thinks “fake news” is a problem. Even the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward is warning that some reporters are becoming “emotionally unhinged” covering President Trump and crossing over into a “tone of ridicule.”

The Promise of Pompeo

March 13, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

President Trump’s decision to promote Mike Pompeo to secretary of state is a huge step in the right direction. It means that, if Mr. Pompeo is confirmed, the administration will have in the top foreign policy job an officer who was first in his class at West Point, appeared in arms in Iraq, soared at law school, mastered politics in Congress, has run the Central Intelligence Agency — and who agrees with the president.

The Coming Korean Summit

March 9, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

President Trump’s plan to meet Kim Jong Un has already had one effect — it has flipped the New York Times. Only a few months ago the Times was complaining that Mr. Trump had threatened at the United Nations to destroy totally North Korea, while offering “hardly a hint of compromise or interest in negotiations.” Now the Gray Lady is rushing out a column by Nicholas Kristof warning that Mr. Trump’s plan for a summit is a “dangerous gamble and a bad idea.”

Harvard’s Next President Finds a Teaching Moment Even Before Taking Office

February 19, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

The Crimson columnist complained that Mr. Bacow “does not understand, first-hand, what it means to be reduced to your gender or the color of your skin.”

And there, precisely, is encapsulated the irony of the situation. The vanguard of the anti-racism, anti-sexism movement on campus looks at an individual chosen for a job and can’t see past his skin color or his gender. If Mr. Bacow didn’t “understand, first-hand” what it means to be reduced to gender or skin color before he was chosen for this job, he sure does now, because it appears to be the only thing, or the main thing, that his critics can see about him.

Had those critics bothered to look beyond appearances, they might see someone who introduced himself to the university in a YouTube video as the son of two Jewish refugees.

A Tale of Two Memos: Mulvaney, Nunes Missives Both Press Rule of Law

February 6, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

The story of the Trump administration this year has been the story of two memos. There is the Nunes Memo, from the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, describing “abuses” by the FBI and the Department of Justice in wiretapping a volunteer adviser to the Trump campaign.

And there is the Mulvaney Memo, from the acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Mick Mulvaney, which has gained less attention but which may ultimately be even more significant in restoring the rule of law.

How the Trump Turnaround Took Davos by Storm By Putting America First – The New York Sun

January 27, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

“America is open for business, and we are competitive once again.” That was just one of the key lines in President Trump’s highly successful Davos speech this week.

Of course, in going to Davos, Mr. Trump entered the lion’s den. A year ago such a visit would have been a poor idea. Back then, elitist heads of state, the European Union bureaucrats, and the international chief executives were uniformly against Donald Trump.

But Mr. Trump’s 2018 Davos strategy was a brilliant stroke.

Will Supreme Court Now Act Against Judges’ Campaign To Foil Trump Presidency?

January 18, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Could the fight over the Dreamers finally get the Supreme Court to put its foot down on the campaign by liberal district judges to foil Donald Trump’s presidency? It looks like we could find out.

That’s because of the announcement this week that the Trump administration will try to go back to the Supreme Court over the latest orders from a judge in San Francisco.
