Paul Ryan’s Plan Undercut Trump’s DACA Ban Would Unleash New Wave of Instant Democrats
The DACA business is getting interesting. Just to remind you, DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, Barack Obama’s Executive Order giving renewable two-year work permits to illegal aliens under age 31 who claimed they were brought to this country by parents before age 16. Note the ages there. That age 31 was the... Read More

A couple of remarks in Professor Susan McWillams’recent Modern Age piece celebrating the 25th anniversary of Christopher Lasch’s 1991 book The True and Only Heaven, which analyzed the cult of progress in its American manifestation, have stuck in my mind. Here’s the first one: McWilliams adds a footnote to that: The 19 percent figure is... Read More

I guess The Donald should be glad at least that his enemies can’t play the Hitler card. Hitler seems to have been well-nigh sexless—definitely not a ladies’ man.Eva Braun once grumbled that he had never treated her like a woman. Nobody’s quite sure what she meant, and whatever it was died with her in the... Read More
My old National Review colleague Kevin Williamson [Email him] has been frightening the horses with a piece he posted at the National Review website the other day. It’s a subscription website; you have to pay a quarter to read the article. I gritted my teeth and paid. Kevin’s theme is white trash. They’re complaining, he... Read More
Super Trumpsday, as we call it over here in the Trumposphere, was a good day for the Donald: He won seven states to Ted Cruz’s three and Marco Rubio’s one, and he picked up either 237, 247, 257, or 258 delegates, depending which website you check. I don’t know why professional journalists can’t agree on... Read More
One thing that came to mind watching Sarah Palin’s speech endorsing Donald Trump: how very American it was. It’s hard to see your country and its customs objectively if you’re born and raised here; you just take them for granted. To immigrants like myself, America’s national culture is as distinctive, as unique, asfascinating as Japan‘s.... Read More
I did not of course sit through the President’s State Of The Union address. The human frame can only bear so much. My entire concession to journalistic due diligence was to Ctrl-F through the transcript next day to see how many times Obama said “That’s Not Who We Are.” Answer: Incredibly, he didn’t say it...

Obviously, France’s ruling class was not relieved by the results of the December 13 French regional elections: it is now trying to find a legal excuse to destroy National Front leader Marine Le Pen [Marine Le Pen could face political ban over financial declaration, by John Lichfield, The Independent, December 22, 2015]. This soft totalitarianism... Read More
I'm afraid that the first thing that came to my mind that the word “sissy” is nowBanned In Britain (by David Cameron’s “Conservative” government!) was my favorite homosexual activist from the 1990s, Luke Sissyfag, who ran for Mayor of Washington, D.C. in 1994, although alas he didn’t win. The latest news about him I can... Read More
The National Question didn’t get as much of an airing as I’d hoped in Thursday night’s GOP presidential hopefuls’ debates. (Although Ann Coulter and NumbersUSA’s ever-cheerful Roy Beck are modestly pleased). Unless I missed something, Birthright Citizenship, Chain Migration, Affirmative Action for immigrants, an immigration moratorium, and the status of Puerto Rico all went unmentioned.... Read More
And Can The GOP Win The White Working Class?
When Hillary Clinton finally retires from public life, my reaction will be similar that of Samuel Johnson’s publisher, Andrew Millar, after years of editorial struggle to get his Dictionary written and published—Thank God we have done with her! She’s still around though, and I have to deliver to you the news about her doings. Fortunately... Read More

Personal Classics
Limbaugh and company certainly entertain. But a steady diet of ideological comfort food is no substitute for hearty intellectual fare.
Once as a colonial project, now as a moral playground, the ancient continent remains the object of Great Power maneuvering
